- Glad to see Akio win, as this feud between him and London could become interesting. Obviously a Kidman turn coming soon though, I can tell.
- Fantastic JBL promo, really great and Rico’s lines were brilliantly written as well. Quality stuff.
- Simple squash match, but was really effective. And why is it that whenever somebody needs to be jobbed to a monster to get them over, its always Shannon Moore? Never mind, simple match which played out well, hopefully there’s more to come from Goldberg tonight.
- Guerrero/Benoit promo was written well, but I can feel a turn from one of them, but I cant decide who. Although I’m leaning towards Benoit turning eventually. I still think JBL will win though
- Hmm, this Hart promo was well delivered, but very unexpected. I suppose it’s so you can prolong this Angle/Hart match till Mania, rit? Angle’s reaction backstage was great as well.
- Kanyon/Hardy match was a great filler choice, and a great feud could come out of this. Should be interesting to see where you go with this. And also, LOL at Tazz wanting to be the GM, classic.
- Awesome Jericho humour, best promo I’ve seen in a while from him. Heyman was mint and Brock was great.

- Glad to see Regal/Storm get a push as I’ve always loved this team, especially when Chief Morely was there as well. Can’t see them winning the belts though.
- Thank god for Angle, because I was about ready to fall asleep again with Triple H on the mic. He needs a character change, and FAST. He’s so stale its beyond belief, turn him face L Angle was brilliant, I see him winning at GAB, and maybe taking the Title at SummerSlam, although I doubt it. Nice to see Austin attack again.
- Great Austin/Hart interaction, although I thought it lacked a bit of “Real Tension” between them. I would have liked to hear a reference to their WM Match, but that doesn’t matter. Austin v Triple H feud is really gunna heat up now.
- I would have loved to see Rico win, but I guess it’s better if he doesn’t as JBL needs to momentum heading into GAB. Well booked with great tension at the end with Guerrero/Benoit.
- Another brilliant Masters/Dean interview, really getting them over against the Dudleys. And Kanyon’s addition to the group is interesting, I suppose it because you’ve got nothing else for him, still brilliant.
- Main Event was very well booked, with Lesnar getting a clean win, it blows the GAB match WIDE open. Should be interesting to see who wins.
Realism – No Rock? No WWE Champion? And only a squash match for Goldberg? A little disappointing, 8/10
Length –Can’t find any faults here, perfect length, 10/10
Quality/Entertainment –Very, very entertaining, especially the Rico segments, 9/10
Spelling/Grammar –Can barely pick out a thing.10/10
Matches/Booking –Booked brilliantly, 9/10
Overall, a brilliant 92/100
WWE Championship Match:
The Rock vs. Goldberg
Prediction- I can see Goldberg winning this, his character has developed nicely and Rock has had his run.
WWE United States Championship; Fatal Four Way Match:
Eddie Guerrero vs. J.B.L vs. Chris Benoit
Prediction- JBL. No doubt. His promos have been so emotional, I can’t see him not getting it.
WWE Tag Team Championships Match:
America’s Most Wanted vs. William Regal & Lance Storm
Prediction- AMW to win, they’re over and it’s barely a feud, but if it continues to SummerSlam, Regal and Storm will win.
WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match:
Paul London vs. Akio w/Sakoda
Prediction- London won’t lose yet, he’s too over, and I’m waiting for this London/Kidman feud.
#1 Contenders Match; Winner faces WWE Champion at SummerSlam:
Triple H vs. Kurt Angle
Prediction- Angle, definitely, Triple H is preoccupied with Austin, but Bret has gone away for a while, so Angle will shine and beat the winner of the Main Event for the belt methinks.
Brock Lesnarw/ Paul Heyman vs. Chris Jericho
Prediction- Hmmm, not sure at all about this, but I can see Jericho getting the win for some reason.
6 Man Elimination Tag Team Table Match:
Dudley Boyz & Matt Hardy vs. Simon Dean, Chris Masters & Kanyon
Prediction- Not sure, but I think Masters will win his PPV debut.
10 Man Cruiserweight Gauntlet Match:
(To determine the #1 Contender for the Cruiserweight Championship)
Billy Kidman vs. Chavo Guerrero vs. Funaki vs. Jamie Noble vs. Nunzio vs. Scotty 2 Hotty vs. Shannon Moore vs. Spike Dudley vs. Tajiri vs. Ultimo Dragon
Prediction- Kidman all the way. The Kidman/London feud will start at GAB.
Announcement of Interim General Manager…who will it be??
Eric Bischoff, Paul Heyman, Christopher Nowinski, Tazz and JBL among others all in the running…who will it be??
Prediction- No idea, should be great to see, although I still favour Tazz :P
WILL REVIEW NEXT SMACKDOWN LATER!!!!!
