Re: Being the booker
First off Congratulation finally getting up to date, now onto the review.
Excellent opening promo, very typical whining Triple H character, about wanting about his 100th title shot. Nice interuption by Eddie Guerrero, with the promo becoming just that much better. Eddie Guerrero vs Triple H, 20 Minutes at Nemisis will be excellent, will Eddie Guerrero finally defeat Triple H, look forward to that.
AFA vs Basham Brothers.
I alway wonder what A.F.A. stood for, Acoyltes Fashion Agency, LOL, that excellent. Onto the match though, really good tag team match, that was very well described, good win for AFA.
Another Excellent promo by the Rock, very in character. I really thought Rock was going to ask Josh Matthews to be his partner, but all he wanted was "Pie." Nice storyline emerging here with Rock requesting Stone Cold to re-consider his retirement and team with him. This will interesting to see where it goes, but i expect Austin to return.
Jamie Noble vs Billy Kidman:
Excellent match, i really enjoy when these two hook up, good spots in the match especially Kidman countering the Tiger Bomb into a Hurracarrana, very nice. Good counter as well from Jamie Noble getting his knee's up from the Shooting Star Press, Ouch, good win for Jamie Noble, still cheating to win.
Nice Bret Hart segment with the Answerphone message from Kurt Angle, nice little truths about Lance Armstrong and Ric Flair, will Bret Hart come out for one Last Match, in what could be a classic, i hope so.
Chris Benoit vs Test:
Good way to have Chris Benoit continue to go over, with him beating Test with a nice combo of a moveset. Good way to start the build up of an intense feud of the past with Kurt Angle having Kurt Angle applaud Chris Benoit victory.
Brock Lesnar and Goldberg promo was good on Stone Cold, it was really well written and built up the storyline. Good interuption by The Rock only for him to get his ass kicked, good way to build up the feud. Nice aftermath between The Rock and Bret Hart, look forward to Rock vs Brock next week, where hopefully Stone Cold will make his return.
Chris Jericho vs Matt Hardy:
Great match here, it was really well written, i liked Matt Hardy taking advantage of Chris Jericho ring rust, only to be rolled up and lose the No.1 Contender Match, which was expected considering Chris Jericho and JBL feud. The promo cut after the match between JBL and Chris Jericho was really good. It was good how a brawl was about to start, but Chris Jericho fought off the Cabinet, only to have JBL leave. I see Chris Jericho finally beating JBL come Nemesis.
Paul London vs Kurt Angle:
An excellent main event, with Paul London being put over really well and putting in a great effort, almost upsetting Kurt Angle. Though Kurt Angle used one his 3 I, being Intestity and putting Paul London away after the flawed 450 was very good, great match. Very nice aftermath, with Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit having their staredown with Chris Benoit returning the applause.
Overall excellent show Wolfy. It built up Nemesis really well, and everything with was right, including the promo's and matches.
