An Age of Evolution


-WWE: An Age of Evolution-

It's been a while. I've booked here under past usernames, some of you may also know me from another place years ago as CT Styles. I've decided to go back to 2007 as I feel it's a period of time I can clean up mistakes before they even happen. I've altered the WrestleMania 23 results slightly. MVP defeats Chris Benoit for the United States Championship and Benoit just fades into obscurity forever, also The New Breed defeat the ECW Originals, which kills ECW meaning stars of ECW will be slotted into RAW or SmackDown rosters. The Divas are also performing on Superstars instead of the main shows currently.

News and Rumours

With this said, according to various sources WWE plans on debuting a lot of new talent mainly from developmental to freshen things up. As well as the obvious 'debuts' of ECW stars, the midcard is said to be the priority of many backstage with the intentions to create a midcard as captivating as the main event can be. Some people would be aware of some of the members in developmental that have been revealed to the public. Some of the main names that PWI is aware of include:

Bryan Danielson, who it appears will wrestle under the name Bryan Daniels.
Matt Sydal, who it appears is wrestling under the name Evan Bourne - a name officials had prepared for him even before he signed
Jimmy Jacobs, who is apparently set for a name change
Ted DiBiase Jr. - the son of obviously The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase
Jonathan Good AKA Jon Moxley, wrestled a dark match last year and has remained on good terms with the company - his ability to play a unique character has him high with many backstage
Austin Aries
Kofi Kingston
Plus some other names that have not been officially confirmed

CM Punk is said to be a name many are high on talent wise. Personally he isn't best friend with everybody backstage and is quite outspoken, however talent-wise WWE is certainly on board.

The pay-per-views will remain brand exclusive, except obviously for 'the big 4' in WrestleMania, Royal Rumble, SummerSlam and Survivor Series.

SmackDown has it's 400th episode coming up on April 20, whether anything massive is planned for that as yet is under wraps. It is highly unlikely it will be a 3-hour show, but title defenses certainly aren't out of the question.

The Cruiserweight Championship though currently vacant, is said to be high on the importance list as WWE would like the title regain some prestige. A lot of the talent involved with it currently WWE feel the audience doesn't overly connect with, so there may be some new debuts in the near future to bring some excitement to that area of the show. Some of the developmental names have definitely been thrown around in discussions.

-Monday Night RAW Preview-
Monday Night RAW returns after the phenomenal night that was WrestleMania 23! After such a historical night RAW looks to continue the trend. Due to the incredibly embarrassing night Mr. McMahon endured at the hands of none other than Mr. Donald Trump he will disappear from WWE television indefinitely, which allows us to announce The Nature Boy Ric Flair will be interim General Manager for the foreseeable future! WOO!

Two matches already booked prior to The Nature Boy's appointment as interim General Manager are The Hardy Boys defending their World Tag Team Championships against MNM and Randy Orton facing The Great Khali, however with Jeff Hardy's horrific injuries he sustained last night will his brother have a partner, also in Randy Orton's case will he be able to slay the giant that is The Great Khali? No doubt The Legend Killer will have something to say about his unfortunate match-up.

With the dissolving of ECW, this means many talents are looking for a home on either the red or blue brand. One name that has already been snatched by RAW is The Straightedge Superstar CM Punk, with many aware he is committed to making an impact immediately on Monday nights. How will his new adventure on RAW greet him, with success or disaster?

John Cena remains the WWE Champion after last night, will there be a new challenger for his title seeking to gain a match, or will Shawn Michaels still have something to say about their feud? Many stars see this as an opening to make a challenge toward The Champ, could we see a fresh face in the main event to battle the champion at Backlash or will Cena simply ignore all the attention and choose what he does with the title himself?

All this and many more on MONDAY NIGHT RAW!

Confirmed:
Matt and (hopefully) Jeff Hardy defend their World Tag Team Championships against MNM!
Randy Orton faces The Great Khali!
WWE Champion John Cena to appear!
CM Punk's RAW debut!
Ric Flair as new General Manager!
Plus much more!

Re: An Age of Evolution

Can't wait to see what "An Age of Evolution" has in store.Glad to see that you "pulled the plug" on ECW before WWE can even ruin it, water it down, & make a mockery out of it.Can't wait to see what direction you take WWE 2007 into & what differences you will create.Also can't wait to see what's in store for CM Punk, with him being placed on RAW a year in advance.

Re: An Age of Evolution

I'm pretty rusty. First show in about 2 years I think.


-Monday Night RAW-
April 2, 2007 | Joe Louis Arena; Detroit, Michigan
WWE RAW rolls into the Joe Louis Arena of Detroit,Michigan after the phenomenal event that was WrestleMania 23 last night. Jim Ross and Jerry The King Lawler greet us as they unsuccessfully contain their excitement regarding the events of last night as well as what's to come. Jim Ross breaks the news that due to Mr. McMahon's embarrassing night last night he will not be present on RAW or any other WWE programming indefinitely. King can't help but chuckle at the statement, however he is interrupted by Ric Flair's music. Ric Flair approaches the ring sporting one of his signature suits as Ross reveals we are looking at the General Manager of the foreseeable future, Mr. Ric Flair.

Flair receives a very positive reaction from the crowd as he stands by in the ring with a cheeky grin on his face.

Flair:
Ladies and gentleman, allow me to reveal to you that you're looking at the new RAW General Manager!

Flair pauses for the pop.

Flair:
Now, The Nature Boy's first order of business is to warn you to get ready for a ride! Now that we've established that RAW is now definitely the superior show with The Nature Boy in the saddle let's get this bad boy on the road! Already announced prior to my appointment as GM was Matt Hardy having to defend his World Tag Team Championships against MNM without his injured brother - so he's got quite a task ahead of him in order to find a replacement on this short notice. We also have Randy Orton facing The Great Khali...

Kenny Dykstra's music interrupts The Nature Boy as he approaches the ring. Flair looks on with a smirk on his face, curious as to what Dykstra could want of him.

Dykstra
Nature Boy, let me just say it's a damn honor to have you as my general manager, it's a fresh new wrestling year, it's a new general manager and most importantly it's a new me.

Flair chuckles to himself, saying 'is that right' off the microphone.

Dykstra:
It is right, Ric. It is right. I'm a new man since I ditched The Spirit Squad - I've even reverted back to my birth name, Ken Doane. I'm here to make a mark.

Flair: I tell ya what, son. First, let's get the ass kissin' outta the way and let The Nature Boy get straight to the point. It's pretty damn hard to take a man seriously after you've seen him dance around like a cheerleader for a long damn time. The words The Nature Boy lives by are TO BE THE MAN, YOU GOT TO BEAT THE MAN and I tell ya what, son you've gotta learn how to even act like a man. So I tell ya what, I'll give you a chance to prove to me you're a man over a period of time. Tonight, is challenge one for you: facing Viscera in a match later tonight! Good luck, big man!

Flair drops the ring and exits the ring entrenched in his usual swagger as Doane looks on. Ross and King certainly make it known they feel sorry for young Doane as RAW heads to a commercial break.

Commercial Break

RAW returns to the Joe Louis Arena with JR and King hyping up this upcoming World Tag Team Championship match, the only question is, has Hardy found a partner and why has this match been announced when it's clear the other half of the team in Jeff Hardy is nowhere near capable of competing after the horrific injuries he fell victim to during last night's Money in the Bank match.

MNM's music hits to heat as Joey Mercury and Johnny Nitro approach the ring accompanied by Melina, clearly confident with the scenario ahead of them.

Matt Hardy's theme music hits to a decent pop as he approaches the ring as people eagerly await who his partner could be he whispers into Lilian Garcia's ear. She then announces that Hardy has no partner. JR and King slam whoever is responsible for the match as it would be clear, nobody would be able to find a partner last minute immediately after the biggest show on the year. It appears it's Hardy defending the World Tag Team Championships he and his brother hold in a 2-on-1 handicap
match.


Match 1: World Tag Team Championship; 2-on-1 Handicap | Matt Hardy vs. MNM
The odds were clearly never in Matt Hardy's favor from the moment this match was announced however he exhibited the fight he is so known for. Despite beginning the match positively, throwing caution to the wind he went all out, even managing to control the match early on however MNM soon gained control of the match with Mercury connecting with a well executed neckbreaker. Hardy eventually reversed a double underhook DDT attempt into a backbody drop and regained a little momentum before Mercury eventually managed to tag Nitro back in. Eventually Nitro seized an opportunity to connect with a Nitro Blast before Hardy was finished off with a Snapshot.
Winners and NEW World Tag Team Champions | MNM via Pinfall

MNM are awarded their new World Tag Team Championships - their first reign with the titles. They kick the lifeless Hardy out of the ring, yelling at him to return back to SmackDown as JR and King comment on the one-sidedness of the match and question whether MNM truly have earned these titles.

RAW cuts to backstage where new recruit CM Punk is seen as warming up exhibiting his signature hand movement he does before every match. He is then greeted by none other than a cocky Armando Estrada.

Estrada:
Ah! RAW's NEWEST recruit, the one and only CM PUNK!

Punk turns to Estrada, unimpressed.

Estrada:
Allow me to be the first to welcome you to Monday nights, young man but I've got to ask you... are you a little scared?

Punk scoffs at the suggestion.

Punk:
And why the hell would I be scared?

Estrada chuckles to himself.

Estrada:
Well you, little man, you have only spent your whole time at the kiddy-table since you've joined this company. In your little "ECW"...

Estrada utilizing air quotes for ECW - not that they were necessary...

Estrada:
ECW... extremely crappy wrestling where nothing matters, you need to understand Mr. Punk, now that you're here none of your past 'accomplishments' matter you are nothing here on RAW or anywhere, you know why? Because you are in the kingdom of UMAGA! It's only a matter of time before we rule this show and this company, so how about I put a little challenge forward to you?

A visibly frustrated and insulted Punk edges closer to Estrada, his interest clear as he goes face to face with Estrada.

Punk:
And what's that, Armando?

Estrada: Why don't you prove you've got what it takes to belong here where the big boys play? Why don't you prove your worth and step into the ring with Umaga TONIGHT!

Crowd pops as JR and King comment on the seriousness of that challenge, JR reiterates that that is no challenge to sneeze at.

Punk:
You're on, Armando. I'll see you and that circus freak out there later tonight!

JR and King hype up the match as well as the upcoming
battles between Ken Doane and Viscera, as well as Randy Orton and The Great Khali.


Commercial Break

RAW returns with Viscera awaiting his opponent in the ring.

Ken Doane's music hits to not much of a reaction as he approaches the ring for his David vs. Goliath battle.


Match 2 | Ken Doane vs. Viscera
Doane mainly played chicken the entire time, trying to avoid Viscera ever being able to make contact with him. Viscera eventually caught Doane and treated him as his own personal ragdoll for a while. Doane eventually looked as if he was going to fall victim to a running splash in the corner, however he managed to dodge the attack, then perform a dropkick into the back of Viscera, knocking him into the turnbuckles again. Doane then performed a bulldog-like attack, slamming Viscera's head into the pole behind the turnbuckles. The groggy Viscera then stumbled back and collapsed down on the canvas. Doane capitalized and performed his signature Sky High Legdrop for the victory.
Winner | Ken Doane via Pinfall

Another new RAW recruit in Santino Marella is seen training backstage in the locker room, nailing kicks and punches into his punching bag. Shelton Benjamin stops by, 'admiring' Marella however it's obvious the sarcasm embedded in Benjamin's actions.

Benjamin:
Nice 'style' you got there, man. You know a punchin' bag ain't gonna fight back.

Marella pauses, then looks at Benjamin unimpressed but yet curious as to what Benjamin's agenda is. He holds onto his punching bag to prevent it from swinging.

Marella:
Thanks for the info, Shelton. What's your point?

Benjamin: My point is this is wrestling it ain't brawlin' not that I ain't great at both but you goin' out there into a wrestlin' ring man. You look at my accolades and you know why the people out there are payin' to see ME! You ain't impressin' no one punchin' and kickin' somethin' that won't hit back, my man. You lookin' not only at a proper wrestler but a showman. I kick ass but I make it look beautiful at the same time!

Marella lets go of his punching bag.

Marella:
I tell you what, Shelton. How about what we find out what's more effective. Showmanship and entertaining the crowd, or going out their to kick the ass of your opponent and going out their to win. Nothing else. How about that?

Benjamin chuckles to himself cockily.

Benjamin:
You don't want none 'a this, my man. I guarantee that!

Marella: I do. I want all of it. So I'll see you out in the ring later tonight, showman.

Marella swings the punching bag towards Benjamin, leaving him in the locker room. JR and King declare their excitement for the match.

John Cena is seen entering the building to a mixed reaction. He walks through the hallway and is greeted by The Masterpiece Chris Masters. Cena looks Masters up and down, surveying him, curious as to why he's interrupted him.

Cena:
What can I do for ya, Chris?

Masters: First off John, let me congratulate you on that fantastic match you had last night with Shawn. I mean that was truly phenomenal well done on that. I mean you made Shawn Michaels, Mr. WrestleMania tap out right there in the middle of the ring at WrestleMania in front of millions of people. See, I've never made anyone tap out John, you know why? Because I make them pass out. Now that thing over your shoulder there you're wearing ever so proudly... you currently don't have a challenger for it do you? I mean, you beat HBK fair and square last night, Edge and Jeff Hardy are lying in hospital beds right now; there's no one for you to face. So John, how about I cure that loneliness of yours? You wouldn't want to be heading into Backlash with no one to go one on one with would you?

Cena looks at the title on his shoulder then reverts his attention back to Masters - never taking any talk of that prized possession, the WWE Championship he holds lightly.

Cena:
You do make a good point, Chris there's a lot of vacancy on RAW right now in this WrestleMania hangover and maybe it's time for someone like yourself to step up, you no out of darkness... or dark matches I should say. Do the crowd even know your name, Mr. Masterpiece? I gotta say though I respect your front, you got balls comin' up to me outta nowhere and trying to imply you want a shot at this without directly saying it - instead making it kinda look like you're asking me out on a date... anyway, my friend like I said I respect your hustle that's something I'll never allow to go unnoticed, but how 'bout you try and earn a shot my friend?

Masters becomes more aggressive.

Masters:
Who the hell are you to question who I am or where I stand I'm Chris Masters! The frigging Masterpiece the man behind the Master Lock and I'm the guy that's going to take that title off your shoulder and put it around this perfect prototype-like waist of mine...

Cena now is the one who aggression has taken over.

Cena:
You, you won't be taking anything off of this shoulder of mine, Jack! You got nothin' to claim on me, I beat the 'Lock la...

Masters: You didn't beat anything! I tell you what, Cena! You get out in that ring tonight, you break the hold... I never bother you again. I make you frigging pass out... you and me at BACKLASH! Come on, John. You're never one to step down from a challenge are you?

Cena: You know me too well, Chris. The champ will see you out there, chump.

JR and King hype up the upcoming challenge, both unsure as to whether Cena can overcome the odds, as technically no one has ever broken the Master Lock, Cena only won the challenge previously due to interference from Edge.

Commercial Break

RAW returns to the Joe Louis Arena as Shelton Benjamin is seen approaching the ring to his theme music, JR and King put over his athletic ability and accomplishments, which really are nothing to sneeze at.

Santino Marella's theme music soon hits as he approaches the ring for his debut RAW match.


Match 3 | Santino Marella vs. Shelton Benjamin
The match certainly did not exhibit each competitors talents to the extreme as Marella was more toying with Benjamin, much to the delight of the crowd. Marella managed to showcase some impressive kicks and connected with one to Benjamin's head causing considerable damage, however Benjamin soon recovered. Benjamin attempted a springboard clothesline however Marella rolled under the incoming Benjamin who stumbled upon landing. Marella then rolled up Benjamin from behind for the successful 3-count.
Winner | Santino Marella via Pinfall

Marella laughs rolling out of the ring, poking his tongue out as if to say 'I got you' as Benjamin looks on furious.

Randy Orton enters Ric Flairís new General Manager Office visibly upset

Orton:
Why the hell am I put in a match with that big tree tonight, Ric?!

Flair: Randy boy, thereís nothing I can do, this was a match set in stone before I came into power I canít overrule something that was put in place before I was put in power, thatís just the way itís gotta fly.

Ortonís tone becomes more firm.

Orton:
What do you frigging mean you canít do anything youíre the GENERAL MANAGER Ric, you run the damn show. I demand you change the match/cancel it/whatever Iím not going to be treated like some chump on this show fed to freaks. Iím Randy frigging Orto-

Flair: I know exactly who you are BOY, I damn well MADE you, without me youíd be NOTHING in this business so hows about we watch our tone here hey, sport and cop it on the chin because thereís nothiní that can be done.

Orton is furious; his eyes roll back before reverting focus back to Flair, getting in his face forcing Flair to step back.


Orton: Cop it on the chin or what Ric? OR WHAT? I demand respect and Iím not getting it, you know who I am you know my history Iím the Legend Killer and Iím certainly looking at a Ďlegendí and you should no better than anyone Ric, old habits die hardÖ

Orton storms out of the office.


Commercial Break

Ortonís music hits as he approaches the ring to heat, especially after his tantrum in The Nature Boyís office. Heís certainly fuming over his match with The Great Khali, however who wouldnít be?

The Great Khaliís music hits to a mixed reaction as he approaches the ring accompanied by Ranjin Singh. JR and King discuss the fact thereís seemingly another David vs. Goliath battle here on RAW.


Match 4 | The Great Khali vs. Randy Orton
The Legend Killer didnít have a legend in front of him to kill; he just had a 7 foot frigging nightmare. The majority of Ortonís attack did little damage to Khali who eventually obtained control of the match and began to manhandle Orton. Khaliís massive hands drowned Ortonís throat as he prepared for a double arm chokeslam, however Orton managed to wriggle free. Eventually after copping a big boot to the face Orton rolled under the ropes in pain. As Khali taunted the crowd exhibiting and flaunting his dominance, a frustrated Orton returned to the ring with a chair, cracking Khali in the back with it surprisingly and much to Ortonís shock and fear doing nothing.
Winner | The Great Khali via DQ

Orton continued to inflict chair shot after chair shot on Khali before he stumbled down and out of the ring. Orton screaming demanded a microphone and received one.

Orton: Ric, get your ass out hereÖ Come on! Get out here!

Orton paces around holding the chair in his other hand.

Orton: Come on old man!

Flairís music hits to a pop as the new General Manager for the foreseeable future answers Ortonís furious demands and approaches the ring, despite the perceived seriousness of the situation none of Flairís trademark swagger suffers.

Orton grabs The Nature Boy by the throat while holding the chair in his other hand.

Orton:
Look what you made me do! Already within one night you've managed to disrespect me by not throwing out the match, now I've had to go and take it into my own hands by beating that 10 foot tall freak with a chair and to tell you the truth ol' naitch I might have to take everything back because it's kind of got me in the mood...

JR doesn't like the sound of where this is going as Orton's eyes light up and he begins to survey Flair.

Orton:
To kill a LEGEND!

Orton immediately goes for Flair who tries to avoid the confrontation however Orton has him firm in his site, like a predator after prey he grabs The Nature Boy by his tie seemingly not in control of his actions - illustrating the actions of a man possessed however it all comes to a halt...

Sexy Boy is heard throughout the arena as Shawn Michaels - the man unsuccessful last night in capturing the WWE Championship - comes to the aid of his childhood hero. Orton flees the ring as Michaels slides in, preventing any real damage from occurring. Orton backs up the ramp holding the chair still illustrating the actions of a man possessed as Michaels tends to Flair.


Commercial Break

Upon the return of RAW we are brought to the backstage hallways with the camera seemingly following where noise is coming from. Upon turning a corner, a big bouncer is seen standing in front of the door where the music is emanating from. The camera manages to view over the bouncer's shoulder to witness MNM's Johhny Nitro, Melina and Joey Mercury celebrating their World Tag Team Championship victory in their Invite Only VIP Room Party accompanied with music and, food and alcohol.

Bouncer:
Oh hell, not you guys again...

The camera looks to the right to witness a poorly disguised Cryme Tyme approaching the door.

Bouncer:
I told you guys already, you ain't gettin' in!

The 'confused' JTG and Shad look at each other as the bouncer places his hand over the cameraseemingly about to sort Cryme Tyme out as RAW is cut back to commentary with JTG and King chuckling at Cryme Tyme's attempts to gatecrash MNM's celebration party.

However Umaga's theme then hits to heat as he approaches the ring accompanied by his manager and the initiator for this match, Armando Estrada.

The crowd give a decent pop as CM Punk's music hits and he approaches the ring to face Umaga. JR and King establish the challenge he has ahead to defeat The Samoan Bulldozer his courage is praised as he attempts to achieve what only John Cena has - a victory over Umaga.


Match 5 | CM Punk vs. Umaga
Punk slid into the ring immediately and went straight for Umaga, hammering away with lefts and rights as an attempt to take the monster down. It looked as if Punk had achieved a positive start to the match, however Umaga soon proved his dominance, taking control of the match savagely. Umaga eventually connected with a devastating Samoan Drop, then dragged Punk into the corner with the intentions of a Samoan Wrecking Ball, however Punk managed to maneuver himself out of the way. Umaga, distracted by Punk's movement landed awkwardly on the turnbuckle appearing to hurt his right arm, Punk soon capitalized on that weakness - something very difficult to find with Umaga. Punk zoned in on the perceived injury, nailing the arm with multiple kick variations and leading Umaga into corners in order for him to damage his arm more on the turnbuckles as Punk dodges attacks. Nothing was more important to Punk than weakening that arm, that weapon responsible for the devastating Samoan Spike. The Straightedge Superstar avoided a kick attempt from Umaga and managed to take him down with an Enzuiguri followed by a clothesline off the ropes. This is where he attempted an Anaconda Vice however Armando Estrada distracted the referee and Punk could not fully lock it in on the monster. A pointless maneuver if the referee isn't watching too.

Punk then climbed towards the top turnbuckle in order to perform a high risk move, however Estrada pushed him off. Punk landed on his feet to confront Estrada over the ropes - a big mistake - as the unattened Samoan Bulldozer had recovered. Punk turned around into a devastating Samoan Spike as Umaga screamed out in his foreign language. Umaga emerged victorious over a gallant Punk with help from his manager.

Winner | Umaga via Pinfall

JR is disgusted at Estrada's actions as RAW heads into a commercial break.

Commercial Break

We return to Monday Night RAW with Chris Masters' theme music hitting and the man behind the Master Lock makes his way to the ring. JR and King reveal that CM Punk has been granted a rematch with Umaga at Backlash, this time for the Intercontinental Championship before they discuss the power of the Master Lock as Masters then approaches the referee. It's made quite obvious that Masters is instructing the referee to constantly keep a look out for interference as he does not want a repeat of what happened last time Cena took part in the challenge. He wants to prove he can make Cena pass out himself.

My Time is Now hits to a mixed reaction as the WWE Champion makes his way to the ring. Masters looks on as he stands behind the chair Cena is about to sit in to face the seemingly impossible challenge. Masters cockily signals for Cena to take his seat as the challene looks set to go underway.

Masters looks to lock in the submission a few times before stalling, claiming he's simply making sure he's perfectly prepared, however it's obviously about the mind games. Masters then locks in the Master Lock and Cena begins to struggle, viciously trying to break free of the unbroken lock. As Cena utilizes all his strenth, something we know he has no shortage of it still seems quite apparent the lock is nowhere near being broken. As 2 minutes goes by Masters begins to shake Cena around, applying more discomfort to Cena's task. Suddenly, Masters looks to his side and signals for the referee to watch out. As the referee turns around to tend to whatever incoming threat there is, Masters momentarily releases the hold and kicks Cena in the groin from behind before returning to the hold. A confused referee turns around after there was no threat in site. Cena then eventually seemingly passes out from the extreme pain, the referee lifts his arm up once to nothing, twice to nothing and finally... three times to nothing.

Masters throws the lifeless Cena to the canvas as he grabs the WWE Championship belt, holding it up in the air as RAW fades to black.

Re: An Age of Evolution

Alright, so right off the bat before I even get into the show itself, I have something to complain about. Vince McMahon leaving and not being in power after what happened at Mania is fine, but I feel just naming Ric Flair as GM on the Raw preview wasnít the right option. This could have been a BIG story, a nice way to automatically hook readers in with a ďwhoís it going to beĒ type storyline, and you just gave it up. Whilst I feel that was a missed opportunity, I look forward to seeing what you do with Flair in charge. The new GM opening the show makes perfect sense. The dialogue Flair said wasnít actually that bad, as of course heís going to talk up how great he is going to be. The promo was lacking some real Flair mannerisms though, he never got worked up or excited, and there wasnít even one WOOOOOO! Thatís not very in character at all, imo. I like the idea of Ken Doane interrupting, it automatically gives the young upstart a bit of a nudge in the right direction. The brown nosing was typical of a heel trying to get in the new GMís good books. A smart match to book against Viscera as well, heís big enough to be a worry, but Doane beating him later will make him look good. I just feel overall things felt to rushed in the promo as well, everything happened so fast. A little more detail would have been nice. The booking itself was solid, but the execution could use some work.

A big opening match just because itís a title defence the night after WrestleMania? Awesome. With The Hardyz being on separate brands and being valuable assets to the mid card, I can understand you wanting to get the titles off of them. With it being a Handicap to Jeffís MITB injuries, neither Hardy loses face, and MNM are perfect candidates to carry the division. No complaints here, smart booking, good match, and a title change after Mania is just exciting in general.

AAE and CM Punk meeting backstage is definitely interesting, and Iím excited for the possibilities of what this could lead to. When I made a terrible attempt at a WWE 2007 thread Umaga/Punk was a feud I had pencilled in to really go the distance. Punk/Estradaís back and forth wasÖokay, but again, could have been executed better. There was none of the trademarks of Estrada that we are used to, mixing languages, no cigar, no calling everybody pero. With both AAE and Flair now who are very distinguishable characters in the way they speak, you have just written dialogue that could have been said by anybody. Punkís smart mouth answers back are typical, and I definitely look forward to this match later on. This feud could be amazing, and once again, I like the booking behind the segment, but the execution lacked a little.

Doane gets a nice win over Viscera here as expected. That Bulldog like move into the pole would have been brutal. A good start for Doane in this thread though, as you obviously have some big plans for him. I look forward to it, Iím watching this space.

Shelton Benjamin/Santino Marella segment just didnít feel right. Marella is warming up with a punching bag so Shelton calls him out on his style? It just feels way to forced, like you just needed a dodgy reason to make a match. Benjamin bragging about his style though was brilliant, the kicking ass but make it look beautiful line especially. This is probably the first segment where I actually havenít agreed with the booking of things. The reason for the match is weak at best, and this wasnít announced by anybody, so youíve just allowed the wrestlers to book themselves in a match. Since when were they allowed to do that?

I like the idea of freshening things up and potentially having a new challenger for John Cenaís WWE Championship, but I donít feel like Chris Masters is the right guy for the job. In my opinion, he hasnít done anywhere near enough recently to be able to hold a candle to Cena, heís nowhere near credible enough. Masters approaching Cena and staking his claim was actually written pretty well though. I got the idea behind Cena trying to be humorous as per usual, but the mention of Ďdark matchesí just didnít sit well with me. It doesnít feel like something Cena would call Masters out on at like TV. I also couldnít picture Cena calling Masters ďmy friendĒ, completely random and kind of cringe worthy if Iím brutally honest. The rest of the segment with Masters laying down the challenge was fine, but again, I can definitely see that youíre rusty. A lot of the writing/booking, but more so writing needs work.

This match made me think youíre looking at using Santino Marella as a comedic character, so the idea of him going over a solid mid carder in Shelton Benjamin doesnít sit well with me. Not only that, but despite the match being Ďbuiltí on their contrast of styles, you really didnít mention it once throughout the match summary.

I like the idea of this segment with tension brewing between Randy Orton and Ric Flair already. at Orton calling The Great Khali a tree, epic. Again, I like the idea of the tension between the two, and I enjoyed the intensity from both men. Flair first and then Orton with that AWESOME last line before ending the segment. Good stuff here, man.

Randy Orton getting himself disqualified shocked me a little, but I donít mind it, it really puts him over as pissed off which I donít mind at all.

Orton calling out Flair and looking to go for the attack was rather entertaining, and the idea of Shawn Michaels making the save makes sense. Youíve got automatically got a main event feud here, no issues at all.

MNM celebrating in a VIP party suits their gimmick perfectly and at Cryme Time trying to sneak in.

Umaga/Punk as the main event is fine, and the match seemed pretty good. Punk gives it his best and looks close to winning, only for Estrada to allow Umaga to win. Perfect. Surely there has got to be a rematch down the track which pleases me greatly. Great main event.

I just read that Punk/Umaga II has already been announced for Backlash. Probably could have waited a week and made something a little more of Punk chasing the rematch or something.

I feel like youíre trying to really have Chris Masters make a statement by beating John Cena in the Masterlock challenge. I donít feel it REALLY worked though, as Cena may have broken the hold if it wasnít for Masters cheating. I really donít rate this at all as the main event for Backlash, I think youíve still got A LOT of work to do to make Masters look credible.

Overall, I was extremely critical throughout, as at times the writing didnít portray characters well enough, and some of the booking left me scratching my head. Youíve still shown enough in this show for me to see that after you iron out a few kinks, and shake off the rust youíll do a solid job. At least now youíve got a starting point and can build from here. I look forward to reading more.

Re: An Age of Evolution

Segment #1 - 3/5
Not a bad opening segment at all, to start the show.My only real complaint is "who" opened the showing, seeing how this is supposed to be the RAW after WrestleMania.Other than that, a decent opening segment.

Match #1 - 3/5
Good to see MNM pick up the victory here.It doesn't crush The Hardy'z momentum by announcing that Jeff Hardy would be unable to compete due to injuries he sustained at WrestleMania & Matt Hardy would defend the titles alone, makes the MNM victory that much more realistic; good job!!

Segment #2 - 3/5
Nice backstage dialogue between CM Punk & Armando Estrada.Good way to set up the Umaga/CM Punk contest for later on in the night.Good way to introduce CM Punk to RAW, without forcing him on the fans, but also marking him in a good position on the card also.

Match #2 - 1/5
A meh match here, that's all.I'm just not a big fan of Ken Doane or Viscera, & them being in a match together seems a little forced, like it wouldn't be natural.Nice how Ken Doane picked up the win, though.

Segment #3 - 3.5/5
Both the Marella/Benjamin & the Cena/Masters dialogue were both good.I can imagine those lines being said by the people that said them.I even read them in their voice.Perfect segment here, keep it up!!

Match #3 - 1/5
Never really been a big fan of Santino Marella.I know that Benjamin's probably a heel, but Santino really shouldn't have gotten the victory here.I would see WWE doing the match the exact way that you did it, though.

Segment #4 - 4/5
Loved the Orton/Flair segment.LMAO at Randy Orton calling The Great Khali a tree.Kinda like a Sudowoodo(Pokemon), lol.The dialogue really served its purpose here, IMO.

Match #4 - 3.5/5
I can really see The Great Khali winning by disqualification, after Randy Orton got scared & went berserk with the steel chair.

Post Match - 4/5
Nice way to set up a main event caliber feud, in Shawn Michaels vs. Randy Orton, the Heart Break Kid vs. the Legend Killer, that has absolutely no championship implications, whatsoever.Good job!!

Segment #5 - 4/5
Funny segment with Cryme Tyme trying to sneak in to MNM's celebration.I could really imagine this translating well on TV; good job!!

Match #5 - 4/5
Good main event here.You didn't hurt Punk by having him lose, but also made Umaga look impressive, even with a tainted victory with help from Estrada.

Segment #6 - 4/5
Nice way to develop Chris Masters character, here.Even though Masters had to cheat to win, he's a heel, that's what he's supposed to do.It would've meant more for him if he had made Cena pass out without underhanded tactics & made the Pay-Per-View match more even, with fans knowing ahead of time that Masters is capable of making Cena pass out, cleanly.Can't wait to see where you head with this rivalry, though.

Cheers bro I am incredibly rusty been writing it during a night shift at like 3AM, haha. RE Cena he's the corniest flog in the world so I figured 'my friend' wouldn't be out of the realms of possibility. Estrada and Flair I agree with. I couldn't believe I didn't include any 'woo's after I posted the show. I can't wait to pump out a few shows and get back on track again. It's been 2 years so it's hard to get back in the groove. Thanks for the feedback though!
