Fantastic show as always my friend. As you probably know by now, I don't do full reviews, I'm not very good at putting it all together and whatnot. All the results were pretty much like I expected, shocked at Batista cashing in so quickly and whatnot. Again fantastic show and keep up the great work man.

Re: 2007 & Beyond - It Ain't Over Yet, Motherfuckers

Heyman Deciple’s Summer Slam Review

Opening Video: Cool video. Very well done, the deal with the belts on the beach and everything I thought was pretty original and creative.

Tully Blanchard: Hell Yeah, now I’ve got visions of Steel Cage I Quit matches with Tully being stuck in the head with a piece of a broken wooded chair by Magnum TA with poor Tully screaming I Quit. By the way, I’m all for Tully being the full time replacement for the King.

10 Man Tag: Good opening match. I was rooting for the heels but this had a great finish. I liked how Regal went for the knuck shot and Punk ducked and hit Regal with the GTS and Jamie Noble instead of helping out just said screw it, grabbed his belt and left.

Batista: Batista seems to be breathing heavy a lot lately. Does Big Dave have Asthma? Seriously though, good segment that did a good job of putting over Batista’s emotions before his big match with Flair.

JBL Interview: Good interview here from JBL leading into his match with Charlie Haas. Man, I really hope Haas wins.

JBL Vs. Charlie Haas: This was a great match. I thought Charlie Haas came out of this looking very strong. It’s too bad he had to lose but it was a good win for JBL and I’m looking forward to a rematch.

Rock: Rock getting ready for his match. Nice way to build a little anticipation for the Main Event.

Flair Interview: Awesome Flair promo.

Flair Vs. Batista: “It’s Pay Per View big man” eye poke. That was cool. Good match with Big Dave picking up the win. I’ve got to be honest I’m a little surprised, just because I was expecting Tully to jump up from the announce position and cost Batista the match bringing on a little mini Horsemen reunion but it didn’t happen.

Haas-Benjamin & Helms: This was just fun. Helms was golden getting in his digs at Charlie Haas. Who knew Helms could be so catty. Funny stuff.

Shawn Interview: The awesome just keeps on coming. This was great. Shawn’s smart-ass comments about ladder match royalties and his on again off again relationship with Triple H was just classic.

Summer Games Match: This should be good. Doane and Morrison start it off with Doane being the first eliminated. Then out comes Carlito. “Causing Morrison to blast her in the face.” Giggidy, giggidy. Poor Morrison is the next eliminated. I expected him to last longer, now here comes my main man, MVP. Yes, Carlito is eliminated. Oh crap, MVP is screwed. Here comes Kurt Angle. I did not see this coming Angle is eliminated thanks to some interference from Estrada, Umaga, and Luther Reigns. After that Umaga just walks out and is counted out which works for me because that makes MVP the winner. Hell yeah.

Kurt Angle is pissed: Run for your life. Kurt Angle has sand in his vagina. Kurt’s not happy.

Matt Hardy Vs. Christopher Daniels: Great match. I’m a little disappointed the Fallen Angel didn’t win but still a very good match.

Mickie-Beth: Nice segment here but I don’t like seeing my Mickie cry.

Shawn Vs. RVD: I’m so conflicted. On one hand I want to root for RVD but on the other hand HBK has been so damn awesome leading into this match I don’t know what to think. This was a very good match with RVD picking up the win with an amazing 5 star frog splash.

Ric Flair: The Nature Boy has been laid out. It should be interesting to see where this is going.

Mickie Vs. Victoria: Good women’s match. Nice moment for Victoria. It’s too bad Mickie had to lose but she had a good 17 month run. That’s an awesome title reign.

Flair leaves in an ambulance: I think it was Kurt Angle that attacked Ric Flair. I’m just saying.

Benjamin & Helms Vs. London & Kendrick: Shit that was a quick first fall, nice going Brian. Damn that was a quick second fall, good work Paul. Now here we go the third and final fall. Great action and Benjamin & Helms pick up the win.

Edge Vs. Orton: I wasn’t sure which match would close the show this or Kennedy Vs. Rock. This should be awesome. RKO threw the table, holy shit indeed. Here comes the RKO army. Now here comes Cody Rhodes & DH Smith. Now here’s Lita. That head scissor spot on Orton by Lita was amazing. RKO on Lita, badass. Here comes the big ladder. Orton’s laughing and Edge goes bat shit. That spot with Edge off the ladder and onto Orton threw the tables was insane. Edge wins, great match.

MVP: This was very entertaining with MVP partying to Jim Jones then cutting a great promo and telling Maria that he faces Edge tomorrow night on Raw. Good stuff.

Vince’s announcement: This was good with Vince announcing the draft for Saturday night’s Main Event and Vince telling Stephanie about there being co general managers on Smackdown. I’m hoping for Paul Heyman. Steph’s reaction to the announcement was great too.

Kennedy Vs. Rock: Main Event time. Great match with Kennedy getting the win, which I was very happy to see. We get a handshake between the 2 at the end and then here comes Triple H. They brawl and Kennedy gets hit with the pedigree. Now as Triple H leaves here comes Batista with bloody money in the bank briefcase. Interesting. Batista now cashes in his title shot and defeats Mr. Kennedy to become the World champion. Boo.

Great show, Mac. I give it a 10 out of 10. This was an amazing pay per view and it leaves me interested in seeing where everything is going. Great work.

Not currently watching WWE... I refuse to continue to be part of the problem by supporting something I do not enjoy.

To get my PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING fix, I am currently spending my money on independent wrestling and listening to the following podcasts:

Solomonster Sounds Off
Wrestling Soup
Don Tony & Kevin Castle

Re: 2007 & Beyond - It Ain't Over Yet, Motherfuckers


Uh, OMG, Tully Blanchard on commentary. A regular occurrence please.

10-Man Tag Team Match:
I guess it really is the best choice of opener in the long-run. The only other two would’ve been the U.S & IC title matches, but we all know how unpopular your decision to have JBL open a PPV at WM was {} and Daniels/Hardy has been pushed stronger than a curtain-jerker. Pretty bog-standard affair in the opening with the awesomeness that is Jamie ‘OWNS’ Noble getting himself into all kinds of shit with Rey { @ that slap} before we eventually get all settled down to the way things should be. Nice to see Punk actually taking the lead, so to speak, for his team, and wanting a piece of ole’ Billy Regal. Their feud is actually quite sweet now; more than just your standard rookie/veteran shenanigans. Poor ole’ Chavito becoming the sacrificial lamb. This is basically either setting up the usual big face comeback win or somehow the heels stop the big comeback in the eleventh hour with a dirty tactic to steal it. Love your descriptions of The Alpha Male’s bizarre antics. Bigger push plz. Thank the lord you’re keeping Henry & Kane out of this for the majority, because when Henry did eventually come in he just slowed this thing RIIIIIGHT down. C’mon, Mark. Gotta love T-Lo at ringside though. JIVIN’. Just thinking about it, Finlay has done bugger all really too, except for a few right hands when he came in earlier. This is the first time you’ve written a match with The New Breed in it in full, and I have to say your description of both Burke ‘N’ Brown make it seem like you are quite high on them {a contrast to their jobberdom thus far on SD}. TAM especially, has looked like quite the monster I must say. Uh oh @ Regal going to the trunks. Unless he’s horny, that can only mean one thing. Watch out, Punkster. NIIIIIICE spots from Mysterio, Chavo & Kane to put 8 of the 10 down & out. Love him or hate him, The Big WHITE Machine is always good for that spot. GAB repeat? NO, Punk actually catches Bill by surprise this time & gets a HUUUUUGE win for himself. Wow, I certainly wasn’t expecting Punk to get the pin, and certainly wasn’t expecting Regal to take the pin. Evens their score quite nicely though, what with Punk winning on SD, Regal winning at ‘Bash, and now Punk getting one here. Nice. Pretty good match. Probably needed a bit more Kane/Henry interaction, as, let’s face it, that’s what the people pay to see, but they would’ve killed the speed of this match/opener, so I’ll let that slide. They’ll meet down the line I’m sure. Fine choice of opener. ***

More of Big Dave’s anger management issues I see. God, I can’t wait to see how this night turns out for The Animal.

John ‘INTERVIEW GAAAAWD’ Layfield. Still, new IC Champ would be nice.

Intercontinental Championship Match:
Showtime for my boy Charlie Haas here. It’s sad that I consider a win in your thread as big as a win for him in real life Love JBL’s antics at the start of the contest, pretending to be fair & all before just slapping the taste out of Chaz. Story = established. Haas must prove himself worthy of being in the same ring as a former WWE Champion. Similar to RVD/Michaels I’d imagine, though with slightly less glorious counters I’d imagine. LMAO @ Bradshaw using Angelina as a human shield. Why in God’s name would any valets ever stick with that prick. Nice to see Haas showing why he is slightly different to Kurt Angle {not just a mini-me} by showing off his great athleticism & high-flying ability with the Suicide Dive & CrossBody etc. Other than Layfield’s usual stream of brutal, ugly offence, Haas has pretty much dominated so far. Love the DDT counter to the Last Call, kind of similar to Guerrero’s to the F-5 or HBK’s to the F-U I’d imagine. Haas is looking fairly monstrous though with these suplexes. JBL is not a small man and Charlie’s thrown him around like a rag doll with an Exploder, a belly-to-belly, FOUR Germans, with no real emphasis. Haas isn’t that big, so if you’re pushing him as so strong, you should probably allude to the fact that JBL is nearly as heavy as someone as Kane. Gives Haas a hell of a lot of credibility. Big contrast between the opening & closing stages of the match that really reminded me of Carlito/JBL from WM. Slow, methodical, almost boring to begin with, but once we head into the finishing straight with the young face really upping the pace, in comes the counter wrestling and Bradshaw is forced to use at least some of his wrestling ability. Oh dear, when JBL taps out and still survives, you know it’s not going to be a night for the face. At least with that Charlie might be able to wangle himself a rematch down the line, or at least continue his push with at least some semblance of credibility intact. Thought maybe you’d fooled me when Layfield fucked up and stiffed Williams by mistake, but alas it wasn’t to be. Nice way to end the contest too with Haas’ youthful impatience getting the better of him, giving up on the third German, hits the ropes and ends up eating a Clothesline From Hell instead. Nice to see JBL winning clean for once, though all the shitty tactics and Ms. Williams’ interference would suggest otherwise. Hopefully this is just the start of great things for The Haas Man, as you always seem to have a greater plan when it comes to him. Nice applause for hi afterward. Getting over? I hope so. Good showing. ***

AAAAAND suddenly Rock is face again.

Sweet interview from Naitch. Batista sounds unbeatable, Batista sounds unstoppable, so … he’s going to lose.

Money In The Bank Contract On The Line:
Surprised to see this match up so early on the card, considering the way it’s been pushed. Has me wondering if this won’t be the last we’ll be seeing of Mr. Money in the Bank {whoever he may be} on this night. I know straight up that this isn’t going to be pretty, but this match is really all about story, and a hell of a story at that. Man, Dave really is pissed about his situation isn’t he? He didn’t even find Flair’s handshake/hair stroke funny! ‘Tista’s a robot, seriously. If you replace Shawn Michaels’ speed with Batista’s power, the opening stages of this contest were pretty similar to THE MATCH from WM XXIV, with Flair being bested in the opening stages, but not feeling that his opponent/friend is fully into it and trying to shake that out of him. I can see these cheap moves/thumb to the eyes coming back to bite Naitch in the ass if they only serve to piss the beast off. “IT’S PAY PER VIEW, BIG MAN!” It’s really quite eerie how nervous this match is making me, simply waiting for Big Dave to lose his mind and kill Flair at any moment. You’re doing quite a spiffing job building it up, even for a ‘Tista Mark like myself; I fear for Flair. See what I did there? “Oh, Goddamn it!!” Naitch is hilarious even in pain, as Batista softens up the only part of the body he knows how: THE BACK~ Slams, ring apron, and the shitty bearhug all setting Naitch up for the big face comeback to prevent the dreaded Demon Bomb. Wow, I think that Cross Body was actually Flair’s first real offence in this match, as everything else has been all rakes & thumbs to the eyes, and CHOPS~ Awesome spot with Dave just rolling through CENA-ESQUE with Flair in his arms. That would get the big “oh fuck” reaction from everyone. Sweet counters from Naitch though, knowing his student too well, and VINTAGE {Michael ‘OWNS’ Cole} the ‘accidental’ head butt to the nuts. Had to get the Figure Four in eventually. If Flair is to get the win it won’t be via submission. The day you make David Batista tap out is the day hell freezes over The nit-picker in me would say “lame leg selling, Dave, you were just in the Figure Four & now you’re hitting the Spear” but the logical thinker in me realises that even with a bad leg, if you’re 6”6, 300lbs, you can manage a five yard spring even at half the pace and still make it seem as though you’re a goddamn freight train. This ain’t looking good for Flair at all, as the Spinebuster rears its awesome head, but SHADES OF ANGLE FROM LAST YEAR -- not to be. I guess it really was just too much to ask, Batista is just too monstrous. SPINEBUSTER. BAM. DEMON BOMB. BLAM! We’ve got ourselves a new Mr. Money in the Bank. Had to happen I guess if you wanted to keep Big Dave as THE MAN in this thread {which you obviously, uh, do}. Relief on the face of Batista afterward? Maybe because he didn’t have to hurt Flair … too much. We get the customary embrace and I thought maybe that was that, but then you give us this line: “The two stars then leave the ring and head back up the ramp … Batista shaking his head in disgust.” What the hell could that possibly mean? Is this night not over for the saga of Ric Flair & Dave Batista? I’m … excited. Like I said at the start, the story is really what makes this match, and it was good, despite the match being nothing special. I fully expect a rematch though down the line. Good effort … ***1/2

Weird tension between Haas & CC. Not sure what that’s there for unless one or more of them get drafted soon. Oh, and Helms is such an awesome prick.

Smart. Bringing up HBK’s quite frankly incredible record at SummerSlams. Also knocked off Big Van ‘OWNS’ Vader, which is always something to brag about. Lost to Hogan though

Summer Games Gauntlet Match:
Here we go. This is probably the first match {Flair/Batista is all story for me} that I’ve really been looking forward to. No real surprises to see Morrison & Doane up first as a way of continuing their little feud. I expect THE PHENOM~ {serious WTF?} to get the duke here as revenge for, uh, Vengeance, but it’s not going so well for him in the opening stage as Morrison is getting in all of his big MOVES~ Break dance leg drop, that AWESOME Springboard Enziguiri etc. But he fucks up royally when it comes to the Corkscrew Split-Leg. Oh, so you aren’t going the Wolfy route with this gauntlet then? Getting the falls over pretty quickly? Fair enough. Kenny’s comeback lasted all the time it takes to hit a Powerslam, but the sexy of sexiness Melina screws him badly and Morrison hits the awesomely named Moonlight Drive for the win. Well, this was not an impressive outing for young Ken Doane. Looked like quite the jobber tonight unfortunately. Who’s next? …
Oh hey, Carlito :O Everyone knows I like this guy now. Glad to see a different pace to this fall with Morrison actually taking it to ‘Lito straight away to avoid the fatigue factor. Going after the mid-section of CCC? That could come back to haunt Caribbean Cool if he advance. Oh SNAP, love the reversal from the last fall with Melina actually dicking things up for her man-chum this time and getting stiffed in the face in the process. That’s Angelina AND Melina who’ve been nailed so far tonight, if Alison Danger & Lita end up getting hit too, I’m seriously calling the woman’s welfare office on you Mr. Mac. So Johnny Boy falls victim to a Back Stabber and a pretty beat up ‘Lito advances, but Morrison did have quite a tasty showing. Intercontinental title push I’d imagine … …
PORTER~ Here’s a guy I truly think has everything a guy needs to be World Champion. This Jesus push you’re giving him doesn’t even bother me. AND I’M A REALISM BUFF!!! Love the way you’re portraying Big Lu as some bad ass kind of UFC/Boxing coach. He suits that role quite well. Build on his character plz at the same you do Montel’s. I knew that mid-section would come back to bite Carly in the ass as ‘VP & Lu are really laying into him. Good stuff. We actually get some of ‘Lito’s good ole’ fashioned SPEED as he makes a comeback. Pretty stupid to hit a Moonsault when you’ve got banged up ribs though, eh? More interference results in an elimination, as Carlito knocks down Reigns {I think I would to be honest, the guy didn’t shut up throughout. Luther ‘OWNS’ Reigns} and ends up getting the PLAYAS BOOT & Playmaker. It would’ve been quite nice had Montel slightly modified his boot to hit ‘Lito in the ribs maybe, but it was still a decent finish. I wonder if we’ll ever get a clean finish in this Gauntlet. Will Big Lu/Playgirls still out here & Armando Estrada still to come, I doubt it. “Yes, we do. And that’s not good news for Mr. Porter.” You said it, Tully … … …
Oh man, Angle IS ON FUCKING FIRE from the get-go, just owning ‘VP all over the place with Suplexes straight away. Such a class heel Porter, wanting a little time out. NO WAY, MONTEL GERMANS ANGLE~ I guess, much like his qualifying match with RVD, you really want to push Mr. Porter as genuine World title calibre wrestler who can hang with the big boys. Suits me. He’s awesome. Didn’t last long though, as Angle gets right back on Porter, putting him down with the OLYMPIC SLAM … … … ESTRADA??? What the hell??? This ain’t looking good for Kurt at all. Reigns wears a suit??!! Oh, he’s doubly awesome. Please go into lengthy descriptions of all of his & Montel’s OUTFITZ~ every show. No way, no way, NO WAY!!! MVP JUST ELIMINATED ANGLE!!! Holy shit, where’d that come from???!!! What’s Umaga doing? He’s just killed Kurt … … … no … … … you’re kidding me? MVP WINS THE GAUNTLET VIA COUNT OUT!!! Jesus Christ, you just complete OWNED my predictions. A 4-month rookie in this thread is now #1 Contender? Where did this come from. Judging from Porter’s reactions he wasn’t in cahoots with Estrada, so why would AAE & ‘Mags do this? Surely not just do screw Angle? They had a World Title shot in the palm of their hands, what were they thinking. This has got to be part of some greater scheme, and not just to set up Umaga/Angle at Unforgiven. Maybe Coach has already guaranteed Umaga a title shot. God, I don’t know. All I know is that ‘VP’s reaction after he was classic, and that really unpredictable added a lot to what was heading towards being a predictable & fairly dull contest. Well saved, son. ***1/2

I think maybe we need a rundown of what PPVs you’re doing this year. Last year we had Bad Blood instead of Cyber Sunday right?

Angle = Psycho. Can’t wait for his inevitable WAR with Umaga.

United States Championship Match:
I’m expecting this contest to rival the opener & JBL/Haas for shortness, but also for it to be the fastest paced contest until we get to our good ole’ WWE Tag division a bit later. Glad to see that you haven’t abandoned psychology or story like people I know (~____~) as it would’ve been just utterly ridiculous had Matt come out looking to wrestle The Fallen Angel rather than rip his fucking head off. Looks like Daniels got a little bit stunned by this onslaught I guess; for such a calculating, emotionless sociopath, it’s probably hard for him to understand such an emotional attack like Hardy’s. You know it’s PPV when Matt Hardy hits a PLANCHA~ LMAO, make that 3-out of-3 for valets getting stiffed at this PPV. Danger takes quite a weak bump here, but given the way she usually conducts herself, I doubt that’s the last we’ve seen of her shenanigans. Ah ha, and there’s the intelligence of The Fallen Angel. Much like we saw him do with Sabin & Mysterio over and over again, he lures Matt on in and then hits a … Codebreaker? Or whatever; I know what you meant. And here comes the onslaught of Daniels.
Gotta love how fast this guys churns out MOVEZ~ like there’s no tomorrow, from the top rope {Split-Legged Moonsault} to the more power moves {Tilt-a-whirl, Suplexes etc.}, as well all his awesome boxer-like jabs & kicks. He really knows how to keep a fast, emotional opponent like Hardy at bay. SIDE EFFECT~ These two have moves just MADE for counters, so this finishing straight, which I think we’re entering, should be a blast. Leg Drop? No, BLUE THUNDER DRIVER~ The pace is really picking up now to, dare I say, Steamboat/Savage potential? Counter the Angel Wings, counter the Twist of Fate, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!~! Wow, Hardy’s really breaking out all the moves to get this one done, turning Daniels’ BME into a Crucifix Powerbomb; haven’t seen Mattitude break that out in forever. This is blowing the match that the two had in real life in ROH out of the water so far. Sometimes, ROH need to realise that shorter matches can be just as effective. Really good show of Daniels’ freakish strength, countering Hardy’s Angel’s Wings pin counter into a backslide. VEEEEEERY nice. THERE IT IS, TWIST OF FATE~! Out of the blue like it should and I get it wrong yet again with my prediction that Matt was a mere transitional champion. After what we saw on SD though with Jeffrey, I expect 100% for this feud to continue, with C.D. really taking Matt to his limits before finally getting the belt. I have to say, Mac, this was probably the MOTN thus far. You kept it short, but at such a frantic pace that it echoed Steamboat/Savage greatness. It also followed a similar story, with Matt trying to avenge his injured brother & Steamboat was trying to avenge his own injury. Can’t wait for the inevitable rematch between these two, I hope. This really was a very, very well put together little match. ****

Mickie’s a freak. “Too much time?” I know she’ll be thinking that later on too.

The Rubber Match:
“Showtime” It is indeed, Shawn, it is indeed, but for who more? Will Michaels prove he deserves to remain in this UNTOUCHABLE position at the top of the mountain, or will Van Dam ASCEND to a similar echelon? Wow, I was expecting RVD to get the better of most of the exchanges in this contest, leading to his inevitable defeat, but the opening stages just took me completely by surprise. Van Dam is just one step quicker than Shawny Shawn each & every time. Even HBK’s dickish tactics {nice to see you differing from the chain-wrestling of Backlash btw} can’t save him as he gets dumped on his ass time and time again. HERE WE GO~! I thought it was only a matter of time before Michaels finds an opening, and surprise/surprise it’s with RVD taking one risk too many and missing that big twisting leg drop, fucking up his knee royally. If Jeff Hardy was anywhere near as good as Van Dam {and we both agree he really fucking isn’t rt?} this is the kind of story they’ve been telling with Hunter/Jeff all year. Can Jeff rise to the occasion & win the big one/match. Strange how H & HBK always seem to be the guys placed in the position of egotistical buriers eh? There can’t be something in that … surely … can there? “I think he’s hurt” Yep, no denying HBK is entertaining as hell as a dick heel, but nice to see you exposing his underrated {and ignored} vicious side too with the attack to the limbs of Mr. Monday Night.
Almost reminiscent of his dismantlement of Cena at WM 23, Michaels picks RVD’s leg apart, even with the steel post as a TAG TEAM PARTNER~! Yes, I said it. Nice way for Van Dam to try & get back into the thing though with a page right out of the Shawn Michaels {& Ric Flair} playbook and poking HBK in the eye. Now it’s RVD with all of the answers to Shawn’s repetitive offence, slamming him against the steel post, avoiding the Cross Body, hitting the Split-Legged Moonsault {a lot of those tonight} etc. Glad to see you didn’t just dismiss his leg injury either as VAN DAM CAN SELL~! He just doesn’t sell like a drunken crash dummy like Michaels does sometimes I didn’t think that the win would come for either man in a stereotypical manner, so when Michaels first missed the Elbow but NAILED SCM out of sync I thought that was probably it. NO~! Almost a repeat of earlier on when Shawn realised Rob had fucked up his leg, Van Dam clocks on that Michaels’ stupid back is playing up again following that tumble off the top, and zones in with everything targeted to that one area of the man. I never, EVER thought the finish would come the way it did, with Shawn’s back letting him down on the climb up to the top {that’s what I’m presuming} & Rob taking advantage, knocking him off. Really liked the way Michaels underestimated Van Dam & crawled away, made the 5* Frog Splash sound even move awesome when he actually hit it to HBK’s BACK~! No THAT’S the way to beat The Showstopper. INCREDIBLE~! I never in my wildest dreams thought you’d actually pull the trigger with The Whole F’N Show & put him over the legend, but I guess I was the one underestimating you. You’ve got yourself another main eventer on your hands now. Wow, you’re racking ‘em up for sure now. As for this match; it was a cracking way to end a great feud based all about respect & one man’s mission to get to the top. It started off looking like he would never make it at Backlash with the fast paced, athletic affair, then he got it back on track on Raw, before, in this rather bad-tempered but much more technical wrestling affair, FINALLY proving the doubters wrong. You really shut me up, Mac. Not quite as good as Backlash, but this was still a great match, equalling Daniels/Hardy. ****

ICEMAN~! Oh no, what’s happened to Naitch? Go & tell Batista? I think it’s pretty obvious who’s responsible for this … … but why?

Uh oh, psycho Edge is back. Oh yeah, sociopath Orton is alive & kicking.

Women’s Championship Match:
I haven’t commented on any of the VP’s yet, but this was damn, damn good one. Really shows how epic you’ve made your Women’s division, and with two Divas? Quite an achievement. C’mon, Mickie, buck up, gal. The way Mickie’s starting this thing out down in the corner, it’s almost the perfect set up for her to somehow pull off a miraculous heel steal. But I just … … can’t see that happening tonight. Smart tactics from Ms. James to try & get the hell outta dodge. I know that’s what I’d do if I was faced by her. She’d kick my ass Would be quite fun though. Glad to see you’re acknowledging the time in your writing, as it’s a sure-fire way to make this the most tension-filled bout on the card. OHHHH, Mick just got CREAMED~! Weird choice from Vickie going for submissions in a time limit match. Surely if you’re racing against the clock you would only go for a submission if it was on par with the Ankle Lock or Crippler Crossface, something you could hit out of nowhere. Oh shit, oh shit, that’s it. That’s who you have made Victoria into. She’s a female {and much more attractive} version … … … of Samoa Joe from his 2005 run~! I knew she reminded me of someone, and that’s who it is. Her breaking out the Rear Naked Choke just confirmed it. Use more regularly as a finishing manoeuvre please; it suits her perfectly. Mickie’s desperation is just oozing through in this match, from her {literal] suicide dive through the ropes to shake Vickie off, to the leg sweep on the steps, her repeated covers, her stiff crossface blows. She really is like an Evil Queen from a Fairy Tale or something, who knows her time is up. Really good final stretch too that probably outdid the Daniels/Hardy one for sheer excitement. I thought that maybe, due to Victoria’s intense domination, she would perhaps be on the losing end somehow, but when Mickie avoided the Widow’s Peak & hit the Mickie-Rana & Mick-DDT, I got that feeling. Great finish with the constant roll ups & pin falls; now THAT’S Steamboat/Savage hands down. I would’ve said originally that Mickie needed to get in a few roll ups of her own in the finishing stretch, but that just wouldn’t have fitted at all, as she was desperately hoping for the time to run down, while Vick was desperately trying to get the win in any way possible. It makes sense for Mickie to be on the defensive & Victoria the offensive. Oh, the symbolism of the GOODNIGHT KISS~! WrestleMania repeated well & true. WIDOW’S PEAK~! Victoria is the champion at last, ending what has quite possibly been the greatest Women’s/Divas/Knockouts feud in BTB history. Seriously, Mac. Kudos to you. This match really was superbly booked. You’d have to be an idiot to expect a 30-minute bout in the Women’s division {that’s not where the most interest lies}, but you stuffed so much tension, drama and high-stakes into this match, a mere 10-minutes, that made it mean just as much. Great, GREAT writing. It’s not quite the MOTN, but it’s one hell of an accomplishment. ***3/4

Poor Naitch.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match:
JEEEEEEEZ. What a crazy start to the match~! London & Kendrick just completely giving the proverbial middle finger to both The Carolina Connection & their little stipulation. It makes sense really; The Hooligans didn’t get to pick the stip, so why should they respect it? Well I guess it’s plainly obvious who’s taking on the role of ‘Villain’ for tonight’s production then. Loving the speed & tenacity of Londrick too, no wasted motion whatsoever, going all Shelley & Sabin on up with the Drop Toe Hold/Kick combo, followed by their numerous leaping Double Foot/Mushroom Stomps. Benji is taking a bit of a pounding tonight. Is Spanky meant to be the ring leader? He seems that way. Finally Shelton actually starts to get back into this thing, but gets caught with a pretty tasty sounding Dropsault/Sunset Flip combination. The Hooligans are well & truly heeling it up tonight, ain’t they just? Benji hits his Dragon Whip, but London’s cheap tactics kips Helms away from getting the tag. Damn, I never thought L&K would be this effective as a heel unit. Once Greg finally got the tag, this thing becomes utter, utter chaos. Glad to see you still pushing these guys as the best tag team wrestlers in the world by actually having utilise, uh, tag team manoeuvres. A lot of people forget about those. Synchronicity. That’s what tag team wrestling is all about. The Hooligans, obviously, have more team moves {since they’re ready made for you] but you had The CC break out the double-knee gutbuster, but that was rapidly eclipsed by the awesomeness that was the Poetry In Motion in a Shooting Star Press. Love the one-upmanship between these two tandems. Sums up what this rivalry between these youngsters has been all about. Benji’s becoming the star of the show at this point, taking out Spanky with his awesome PLANCHA~ before busting out his new Corner Powerbomb to break London in half. Loving the way the ref has clearly just said “fuck it” and turned it into a Tornado Tag Match. Sick spot with the Shining Wizard through the ropes as Helms & Spanky are taken out of the equation so that London & Shelton can go one-on-one for the final stretch. I wasn’t surprised when London kicked out of the T-Bone {who doesn’t nowadays?} but I was surprised when he got outta the Victory Roll. Thought we had a Bret/Owen moment right there. Benjamin breaks out something old school … BLOCKBUSTER NECKBREAKER … AND THE CAROLINA CONNECTION RETAIN~! Another match with a very, very frantic last few minutes, but probably the first that sustained it throughout. Great pace. Another feud ender too I’d imagine. Not sure who will be up next for either team, as The New Breed would possibly be too obvious. Perhaps a new team? Still, this has been an EPIC feud of matches, even though this was the, uh, first one you’ve ever written in full Regardless of that, you get the picture. I’d say that I was probably expecting something better from this contest, something pushing 5*’s perhaps, but I guess that’s what we were supposed to have got back at The Great American Bash, and this was just a way to round it all off nicely with quite a bitter, bad tempered affair. Could’ve been better, but it was still amazing. ****


WWE Championship Match:
Wow, I just realised how much you love the WWE Tag Team titles; putting them this high up the card. Quite awesome. Anyway, MAIN EVENTS TIME~! Great VP for our little TLC war here tonight. Orton/Edge really is the most epic feud you have going right now & coming to an end tonight. I still think it would’ve been absolutely perfect had Orton still been champion heading into the bout tonight and this was Edge’s true big moment. Lita not out here? Well, from the Valets you have brought out, they’ve all ended up down & out, so you’re still a filthy misogynist as far as I’m concerned Unsurprising beginning to the clash with Edge just completely beating the hell out of Orton with a raging flurry. Maybe it would’ve started like that as soon as Orton came out, like with Hardy/Daniels earlier, but I guess had to wait until his belt got raised up high. Loving the ease with which Orton is taking to this match, tossing Edge around, “Orton take a look at the table in front of him almost as if he’s shopping, going so far as to put his finger on his chin in thought.” Nice. Psycho. No messing around in this one. Orton’s breaking out the chairs right away. His pace is so perfect for these kind of one-on-one gimmick, much in the same way Undertaker’s is, because he is so damn good as being a methodical, cold bastard. He might be out of place in the 8-Man TLC’s of old perhaps, but when it comes to battles like this he’s in his element. Nice counter from Edge slamming Randall’s spine into the chair, only for Orton to hit the 2nd best {Bob Holly’s OWNS} dropkick in the business knocking the ladder right back.
This next spot with Orton setting up the 2 chairs like a guillotine almost and then Suplexing Edge right through ‘em is why he’s so good in these matches. Reminds me of his LMS match with Hunter from last year when, for the first time ever, I realised that Orton was actually GREAT in the ring, seeing as it was actually HIS match, which is unusual for H, as he usually has to control everything. I guess Randy learnt from the best eh? LADDER TIME~! I love your descriptions of Orton’s eyes whenever he sees Edge getting up and he just matter-o-factly climbs down to inflict more damage on the poor prick. More methodical, calculating pacing from TLK, slamming Edge first off the ladder & then through the chair again. SIIIICK. Good lord, we’re barely into it and I’m already devastated that Orton won’t be champion again for a long, LOOOONG time, as his little counter from Edge’s ladder push and then taking him down with his Backbreaker was awesome, but “I thought this was his match?” was the absolute icing on the cake. Uh oh. Edge’s back in the game now. Orton misses the RKO on the Ladder {hope that actually happens though}, gets Powerslammed & then gets a royal HIDING with a steel chair. Sorry, didn’t like Edge’s “maxin’ and relaxin’”. For once I actually think his psychotic character needs to be the stronger persona. Didn’t Mr. Orton manhandle his girlfriend 6 days ago? Indeed so. Just a slight niggle I guess. THAT’S the way it should be, with Edge cracking Randy open with a sick chair shot. Surprised to see Orton the first to bleed, considering in all likelihood he’s losing the match. Probably won’t be too long till Edge follows suit though I’d imagine. CONCHAIRTO~! Best finish to a Ladder Match ever imo, when Edge nailed Christian with a Conchairto atop the ladder 7 years ago. Echoes of the past? There’s the RKO, and the first real effort to go for the title belt {these two have really just been beating the shit out of each other haven’t they? Good psychology, man} but Edge in what sounded like a direct throwback to MITB 2005 smacks Orton in the arm with a chair. Oh man, Edge actually got lucky that time, eating his own chair but falling into the ladder fortunately. First big spot in the match as Orton goes over the top rope, which I’m sure will be repeated later on with tables involved.
Ah yes, as I thought, the big spot was set up with Edge looking to do damage to Randy with the ladder & table, rather than get the belt {as you said PSYCHOLOGY~ 101}. Big mistake though. Not quite sure how Orton would manage to leap off the ladder in mid-air and land on the apron, but I’ll let that slide … for now. SIIIIIICK spot with the RKO through the table off the ladder. I thought it would come off the ladder too, but that might’ve been to much for even these two bastards to endure. Randy’s taken the worst of this so far though; I hope this means great things {for me} for the outcome. HOW THE HELL DID EDGE GET UP THERE SO FAST~!? Sorry, but he did just get RKO’d through a blooming table. Well, reading it over, Orton was down & out for quite a long time too, so I guess that kind of makes up for it. MASTERS & MERCURY!!! WTF??? Maybe it’s the stupid dick in me but the last thing I expected in this tremendous feud ender was … interference. Don’t know, but it kind of … taints it somewhat. The heat for The RKO Army would be astonishing after this, putting Edge through a table, so I recommend you book them higher than tag team jobbers & Edge fodder from now on {I quite like ‘em anyway}. Masters looked quite beastly taking Orton up the ladder on his shoulders too … CODY RHODES & DH SMITH???!!! WHAT ON EARTH~!!?? I guess these two have a real reason to want to come down after the beating they too a couple o’ weeks back from Orton & co. but these two like actual jobbers of Val Venis & Eugene proportions? Well, they ain’t after this, that’s for sure. I’m not a fan of this interference, but at least it’s out of the way now, and I suppose it does make sense if you look at it logically, that Masters & Mercury would want to help their boss and Rhodes & Smith would want revenge. You’re off the hook. LITA~!!! Now this interference has reached the astronomic levels of TLC II. A big thumbs down at Lita taking down Orton {despite what the idiot crowd thought} but I laughed when he just got right back up and dropped her on her head. Make that EVERY-SINGLE-VALET-HAS-NOW-BEEN-BEATEN-BY-DDMAC~!!! You’re officially sick, my friend, and I pity you, I really do.
Here comes the traditional HUGEFUCKINGMASSIVERIDICULOUSLYBIGLADDER~!!! Wow, pretty quick flurry of offense from Edge, Edge-O-Matic, Edgecution, Spear … … … and Orton just keeps on getting up? Wow, TLK has well and truly become A GOD in this thread. Glorious. HE’S LAUGHING TOO~!!! HE’S THE JOKER FROM THE DARK KNIGHT~!!! This is great. The ending just completely summed this feud up perfectly; Edge has it all in his grasp, but he remembers the past 8-months {I’d imagine} and pulls off that AWWWWWSOME spot to break Randall into a thousand pieces. Makes sense. Makes perfect sense. And Edge climbs up to get the belt & retain the title, ending {take a breath} this LOOOOOONG feud. “At the top of the stage, Edge turns around, and stares back down into the ring, at an unmoving Orton. The WWE Champion takes his hands and runs them through his hair, before yanking on the ends of it, angrily gritting his teeth, this feud and war with Orton more than taking it’s toll on his physical and mental health. I think we’ve seen that look in his face before, btw…” Woah, what? Heel turn? Surely not.
Anyway, Mac, take a bow, not only was that match pretty darn great, but this feud as a whole has really set your thread afire for the last year & a bit. One of the most intense wars I’ve ever had the pleasure of following. Where next for these two … well, for Edge it’s ‘VP I guess … but where next in the long-term sense I really don’t know. Maybe a Draft? As for the match itself, psychologically speaking, it was flawless; entertainment-wise it wasn’t quite the spectacle I was expecting, with Orton pacing really carrying it for the majority. I’d say it matched Daniels/Hardy, RVD/HBK & CC/Hooligans, but it didn’t quite top ‘em. ****

Jim Jones? My knowledge of R&B is quite abysmal. I think John Cena should start listening to Bruce ‘THE BOSS’ Springsteen though for the hell of it. Montel is going to be so awesome with this. Ah shit, I was hoping he would take his title shot to Unforgiven so we get a proper feud outta it, ‘cause him cashing in tomorrow pretty much guarantees defeat. I guess, from a heel standpoint, it makes sense though. We’ll see.

Nice little segment from Vinnie Mac. I think you had a Draft Lottery around this time last year right, so it makes sense. Odds are someone like Orton will be switching brands. I know you want me to think that was Undertaker messing with the lights, but knowing you it was probably Cena dicking with us. To be honest, Steph is annoying me right now; this storyline with her & Cena & H needs to get a move on. A co-GM? Woah. Probably just be Vince, but maybe you’ll shock us with someone BAAAAALIN’.

World Heavyweight Championship Match:
Okay, now THIS right here is the baby I’ve been looking forward to all night. Mt favourite superstar of the modern crop against possibly the crème de la crème of the former generation. For starters, you’re clearly hyping it as such, with that Warrior/Hogan, Austin/Rock, HBK/Hogan, HBK/Hart type moment as they meet face-to-face in the centre of the ring. This is what separates you & makes you a better match writer than so many other people around these parts, you know how to get emotion into your matches plain & simple, and that’s what makes them GREAT in the end. This ain’t gonna be pretty, as we see straight away from the slugfest to kick things off, but Kennedy goes cheap and OWNS Rocky all the way to the outside. Nice mind games from KK, giving it all the trash talking so far. This must be bizarre for the biggest trash-talker of all time, Rocky, to face. Oh dear, and Kennedy PAYS FOR HIS SINS~! {Michael ‘OWNS’ Cole} getting a neckbreaker & getting drilled into the steel steps. Ouch. Big mistake pissing The Brahma Bull off, Ken. This is almost panning out like HBK/RVD so far, with the cocky veteran now zoning in on his younger opponents wounded leg. Nice spot from Rocky with the “MISTER JABRONI” line. Is he still in Hollywood mode? If KK had a cool jacket then Rock could go & slip it on a la Stone Cold. AWWWWSOME.
Kennedy almost gets back into it, but his leg is giving him some serious jip it seems, and he damn near feel Rocky’s version of the Sharpshooter to add to his woes. He does tastes a Samoan Drop, though quite how bad it would look with Double K going that slow is anyone’s guess. Rocks’ being pretty methodical here tonight, clearly taking on the role of ‘Villain’ much like The Hooligans had to earlier. Anything get the job done. Suplex & Spine on the Pine? Does he use that as just a regular move or just a set up for The People’s Elbow? Hmmm. Ah never mind, it actually works perfectly as a set up for the Sharpshooter, really doing some serious damage to the lower back, which Rock seems to now be focusing on following the Suplex etc. Kind of an ‘Austin’ moment in the hold for KK, & I’m pretty sure that’s the parallel you were going for, Oh man, Ken FINALLY gets back into this thing with that counter and enziguiri {LOL @ Rock’s trash-talking}. Now the reigning World Champ is rolling, big time clothesline after Rock’s Nip up, Russian Leg Sweep, and … that awesome FACEWASH~! No way, Kennedy HITS THE GREEN BAY PLUNGE THIS EARLY~! Wow, and Rocky kicks out? This one ain’t got much long left I reckon after that. Serves Rock right for being a cocky shit and going up top tbh. Wow, but KK kicks out of both the Suplex AAAAAAND the Rock Bottom to even the score. What’s it gonna take to put either o’ these hoss’ down? Thank God Rock missed that People’s Elbow ‘cause that AIN’T the right set up for it at all. KENNEDY HITS THE ROCK BOTTOM~! It just seems so right & yet so wrong at the same time. Not surprised KK hurt his leg with a kip up for God’s sake, not very smart, Ken {never seen him do a nip up either} – PSYCHOLOGY~
That’s the proper set up and Ken is in trouble now. PEOPLE’S ELBOW~! No, well I thought that might put him away even though I think it s quite a weak & flashy manoeuvre. Glad it didn’t. That’s the one I was forgetting, The Kenton Bomb. No, he misses that too, ROCK BOTTOM, GREEN BAY MEATPACKER, ROCK BOTTOM … MIC CHECK~!!! KENNEDY WINS~! KENNEDY RETAINS~! Wow, I like the choice of the sudden finish, it’s how both the Mic Check & Rock Bottom work best I think. This was a pretty good contest, probably just beating out Kennedy’s bout with Batista for the best match of his you’ve wrote in full, although his bout with Cena @ The Royal Rumble was pretty wild too. The handshake afterward really added to the specialness, the almost one-off feel of this feud. It really did have that kind of ‘feel’ that only guys like Rocky, Austin & Cena seem to be able to create. Not the MOTN or anything, but still pretty damn special. ***1/2

I’m just … pretty damn speechless, much like you described the fans in the arena to be, after those last few pages. Quite unbelievable. What a difference a few minutes makes eh? Just when Kennedy was standing there on top of the world, still World Heavyweight Champion, out comes FUCKIN’ TRIPLE H AGAIN to beat him down for the second PPV running~! And if that was enough to poor Ken … GODDAMNIT BATISTA’S CASHING THAT MOTHERFUCKING BITCH IN ALREADY~!!! Stunned. Just stunned. Dave’s literally got the blood of his mentor on his hands, and he takes the World Heavyweight Championship back without a fight from the devastated Mr. Kennedy. If it was anyone other than Big Dave I’d be in outage, and I still am a little bit, as I thought you were in this for the long run with KK, maybe till Survivor Series? The way I see it … Kennedy/Hunter is happening, that sick son of a bitch Dave Batista/Ric Flair is happening whenever Naitch is healthy again {odds are he’ll be out after this}, and I guess Cena/Rock OR Taker. Like I said, Mac, one of the most astonishing climaxes to a BTB I have ever, ever read. Even your WM didn’t leave me speechless for crying out loud.

You basically get the gist throughout this review that I loved this PPV, much like your WM, from start to finish. It was a much different animal {no pun intended} to your WM though, as that one was really all about how good your matches could be, while this one had the huge safety net of these incredible stories to fall back on, and as a result a few of the ‘Big’ matches were slightly disappointing, but that’s only be your ridiculously high standards. Overall, you didn’t BEAT your WM, you went a whole different route with it, creating one of the most shocking and amazing climaxes in BTB PPV history, and in the process, one of the greatest PPVs of all time.

Re: 2007 & Beyond - It Ain't Over Yet, Motherfuckers

SummerSlam Feedback

I’m really liking the format/layout of the PPV although the bright green burns my retina. The video package was good and the ‘solitude’ theme at the beach was excellent. You should’ve captured it better though. The generic highlights of the feud quickly overshadowed the theme of the show, which once again suited the ‘biggest party of the summer’ and not the ‘biggest blockbuster of the summer’

The signs were quite awesome. Why is Tully Blanchard on commentary? He would’ve worked better off as commentating the Ric Flair match only, which is on SmackDown anyway but I won’t complain. But I do feel like most people (readers) mark out way too much because it’s a booker of your caliber using someone of Tully’s caliber…

The commentary during the match intros is all kinds of awesome and catches the mood of the match perfectly. Back story to all the superstars is a nice touch as well

The right match opened the show. I’m a huge fan of a main event quality match opening the show once in a while like Bret and Owen did at WrestleMania X but there was really no other place for this match on the card. So I’m glad that it opened. The moves that Rey pulled off in the early going were a little hard to imagine and fairly vaguely explained, infact a lot of the details in this match was vaguely explained. All the rivalries in the match got their moment to shine in here. I didn’t think that you needed to throw this match together just to get these people on the card. This or a variation could’ve easily been done on a SmackDown show and there it would’ve gotten much bigger praise and would’ve drawn SO much more. I wouldn’t call this pointless but it looks out of the place on the current SummerSlam card. Atleast Noble had some character development. A face win should fire the crowd up quite nice for what’s to come. Eleven minutes seemed right for the match too

Nice way for Batista to look like a monster all the while still being torn on what he must do

JBL interview was just the usual. Nothing to really touch on

Haas looked like a machine in the Intercontinental title match’s early going. I dislike JBL using a clothesline in a match as a regular move. I know you specifically stated that they weren’t lariats from hell but why would he hit these weak short arm clotheslines when he could just put Layfield away with his finisher. That is what he came here to do after all, prove to everyone that Charlie Haas is a joke. Slightly flawed psychology in this match but the action was very nice. The finish was stellar. Once again, the match time was appropriate considering how good this was. Haas has been given far too much credit imo to hang with JBL. Match more than delivered

These subtle shots of superstars’ preparation for their matches are really great and helps the atmosphere

Decent words from the Nature Boy

Very surprised that this match is going this early in the night. Bad move as it exposes what would happen in the end atleast imo. The match was great. The game plan for both guys were spot on and the psychology didn’t suffer at all. You’d expect these two to put on a classic after all the time they’ve spent with each other. It wasn’t quite there but it was still exceptional. This SummerSlam is already better than the real life one. The finish was emphatic as could be and still didn’t leave Flair looking weak. That’s something to admire. I do question your over the top use of ‘Slick Ric’, especially when he was KO’d from the Demon Bomb. The embrace was a nice touch although Batista seemingly had other things on his mind. The duration for this match surprised me a bit when I first read it but given everything that has happened afterwards, it makes a lot of sense

Charlie really got buried by Helms. I can see this turning into a feud or something similar following the draft.

Shawn got his facts all wrong or you have, I don’t know. First ladder match was at WrestleMania X in 1994. The rematch was at SummerSlam 1995. Not five months after the original ladder match mirit? Besides that, this interview was really nice but I don’t like HBK’s current character. The Shawn Michaels from the real life feud with Chris Jericho is the perfect character that Shawn could play at his age

Morrison and Doane out for Summer Gauntlet first? I would’ve preferred Angle to start as he would’ve had the most success carrying everyone involved to the best action possible but I’ll wait and see. Really fast paced as I would’ve expected. I never liked Doane much so it’s nice to see him out first. Melina playing a part so early was also nice but kind of makes it obvious that John is going out next. Carlito not able to put Morrison away easily puts over the heel Morrison really well. Some severe lack of psychology in this portion of the match but it’s supposed to be just random action, no? So nothing wrong with that although Carlito looked like Jeff did at Cyber Sunday in real life, kind of stupid. Atleast unlike Jeff, ‘Lito won. The bigger picture of the match still looks really clean due to the amount of offence the later entries are getting in. Carlito’s comeback was nice as was Luther Reigns in the match. One thing you should do is change MVP’s finisher from the playmaker to the drive by kick. It doesn’t even have to be one drive by kick. His current finisher just plain SUCKS. Carlito out once again after five minutes… Angle’s entry and the quick dominance again puts the stipulation of the match WAY over. I have forgotten how the Umaga vs. Angle feud started. The ending was once again, excellent. T’was nice that you kept Umaga and Angle at an arms length atleast until the MVP had gotten the win by himself . I’m confused as to why Umaga left back up the ramp, confused……??? MVP #1 contender!?!? That’s a swerve. I really don’t think he’s ready for that shot yet. I don’t think for one second that he will win but I can only see this match happening on RAW, not on PPV. The match went the right amount of time yet again, especially with the Umaga/Angle saga going on

Surprised that there’s no backstage segment before the next match. Daniels vs. Matt would’ve been my choice of opener for the show without the random 10 man tag thrown in there. This match has enough steam and talent to rally the crowd up. One thing I really dug about the match is the structure. For a 10 minute match, it seemed to be wrestled very well. Such a simple, yet such and effective structure. It kind of reminds me of the Triple H vs. Benoit match from No Mercy 2000 or Finlay vs. Benoit from Judgment Day 2006. Obviously the story if different (and quite frankly, not highlighted well enough) but who will look for the story in a match like this? Structure was there, psychology was there and full throttle action was there. Excellent match here for the time given

Ah, the Mickie vs. Victoria saga is ending tonight, no? Mickie out to be nervous alright

Really very nice and good video package for the RVD|HBK feud. Hardest match to predict on the card imo. Excellent detail on the action imo. One thing that I feel I must touch on is that this didn’t feel like a rematch. Granted, I only briefed through the Backlash encounter but this felt like the first of the series tbh until the very end and that was because of JR. Some of the setups could’ve been much better but I would think that you played off their previous encounters, both of which I have not read completely. Michaels was just usual Michaels in this match, which wasn’t quite enough to live up to what it should’ve been. Despite all that, they delivered a quality match up with a decisive ending. RVD has officially become one of the ‘BIG BOYS’. His after match celebration was quite…non-existent, which shouldn’t have been the case after how personal and how important this feud was. All the focus on Shawn after a match detracts from RVD’s impressive win

WHODIDIT storyline? Nice… After Batista’s earlier performance, the obvious answer would be him although the promo suggests otherwise. Dean in the picture is also nice although outside of the ring, he’s quite useless

Randy’s back to his usual self I see. Edge looks set as well

That was one huge video package for the women’s championship Match and deservedly so. Mickie’s strategy was excellent. Stalling was her best bet unless she could retain by DQ or countout, in which case it should’ve come to play. Atleast Mickie showed some heart and not just brains in this match. Everything in this match seemed to click. There haven’t been a women’s match in WWE that I’ve watched that has been as good as this. This was better than their WrestleMania match, which I read too. Better psychology, better storytelling and the sense of urgency pushes this far ahead of it imo. The finish was brilliant as well

No sign of Batista still on the Flair incident once again hints at the last match/segment

Another excellent game plan being used in the match. The booking of the gameplan, not so great. The first and second falls were played out really well but the psychology suffered heavily just for the sake of the action that followed. And for them to go 17 minutes after the initial beatdown was extremely far fetched. I would've been happy with a few minutes of action in the early going and then employing the strategy then followed by a title retention in a feasible way. The match was good but I was really turned off by the ‘logic’ used in the match

Another amazing video package for the TLC match. Excellent showing in this match by both men. I heavily dislike the “# rungs to go” during these matches but it does add a little surprise factor and helps take up room so I won’t harp about it much. There was something in this match that prevented me from liking it too much . Everything seemed to be expertly applied but the way the feud developed and the way this match came about seemed to have left a bad taste in my mouth. Having gotten that off my chest, there was absolutely nothing wrong with this match. The spots weren’t too obvious, the brutality was always there, the hatred between the two was personified and it was old school too. Randy Orton was by far the star of the match although Edge looked stronger and better in every way. The lead in to the finish was EPIC but the actual finish was so…so. I won’t complain. Besides personal preference, this match was great

Not a lot to say about the MVP promo. It was just there

The McMahon segment was a little underwhelming but it would deliver to the casual fan and that’s all that basically matters. The draft lottery should be interesting, especially on SNME. Is 2 hours enough though? The follow-up was much huger news. Co-GMs on SD sounds promising within the realms of the story. This segment also played as a good buffer b/w the two main events as I doubt the crowd would’ve been as hot as they could be after the explosive TLC

The main event went just how it should’ve. A slugfest was the best option and I’m glad that you utilized it as best anybody could. Details are GOLD once again here in this match. Rock is much better at working on the back than on the legs but this is an interesting factor to bring into the match. The lack on pinfall attempts in the early going was a bit worrying but it works fine in this environment. The sharpshooter so early on is a nice touch. Actually this match featured once again, excellent structure albeit completely different from Daniels|Hardy. Rocky’s tactics were a bit off, especially the top rope stuff, which he rarely ever if not never does but atleast he paid for it. The flow from the get go all the way to the ending sequence was marvelous. It went for the right amount of time and the out of nowhere finish was pretty nice, especially since this wasn’t supposed to be the major talking point of the night. The handshake afterwards is not really Rock-esque unless he won but it makes the face characteristics of both clear. The Triple H brawl was excellent and a great way to setup for the cash-in (which I predicted btw ). Batista finally beat Kennedy and once again became world heavyweight champion

Despite all the negatives I pointed out, I thoroughly enjoyed the show and thought it was an excellent PPV

10 Man Tag Match – **¾
Haas vs. JBL – **¾
Batista vs. Ric Flair – ***½
Summer Games Gauntlet – ***¼
Matt vs. Daniels – ***½
RVD vs. HBK – ***½
Mickie vs. Victoria – ***½
Carolina Connection vs. Hooligans - ***
Edge vs. Randy Orton – ***¾
The Rock vs. Kennedy - ****
Batista vs. Kennedy – N/R

Overall: 9/10


Could've easily been four and not three and a half hours

Re: 2007 & Beyond - It Ain't Over Yet, Motherfuckers

Good work Mac, looks good at a glance, but I have no time to review as such. Layout looks okay too, and the match results were sweet. Not gonna freak out by saying-


-because that really pisses me off when half the people don't read it, I had a little skim for about 10-15 minutes and got through it, read the endings of matches and that, good stuff Mac!

Re: 2007 & Beyond - It Ain't Over Yet, Motherfuckers

Summerslam Review

Loved the opening video the whole beach thing was a really nice touch with the title belts in the sand and all that and this was a great way to get me into the show already.

Tully Blanchard for the win Damn it I am excited, JR is excited, Tazz is excited and Tully ducking Blanchard is excited. I cant wait to begin reading this bad boy

Ten Man Tag Team Match

Okay so after reading the entrances for half an hour I am ready to go . Geez more Noble aggression please I love him starting off the match slapping Mysterio but then he was made to look like a bitch by Mysterio with some Head Scissors. Noble over Mysterio in my opinion so I don’t know what you were thinking Regal in and yep just as I thought Punk gets the tag and out of this whole match these are the two who I am wanting to see go at it the most. Oh and I want to see Elijah pick up a victory. Far out now Regal was made to look like a bitch as well please tell me you are not going to make Monty Brown look like a bitch as well. Unless of course Punk tags in Kane. Finlay in and aww shit this is going to be brutal smashmouth shit. Booker interfering is good way for heels to get the advantage but instead you made Burke look like a dumbass. There we go Chavito had his little period over Brown and then one mistake leads to Exploder Suplex and I am begging you MAC to let the heels finally get some offense in. Here we go some nice offense from the heels with Brown, the Burke and now it is Noble’s turn. For a minute there I thought you were going to make Noble be a bitch again but a Quick Powerslam snuffed that one out. Big bad Henry in and holla holla Teddy gets a slap on Chavo that has got to be Moment of the Night right there. Guerrero with Enzuiguri and now it is time for the generic face domination until the ending am I right? Oh come on Kane against Noble that’s real fair Monty saving Noble from Chokeslam and I would love to see Brown and Kane go at it for a minute or two but it is not happening as Finlay gets in Brown’s face. I liked the spot where Mysterio and Guerrero took out Burke, Henry and the managers. I could picture it happening in my head. Kane off the top rope is a great way to leave Regal and Punk alone and Regal has something in his hand. But no Punk gets the GTS and game over. To be honest I wanted the heels to win this oh well I guess you’re the man around here so I will let you live. Noble not wanting to break the count made him look like more of a bitch LOL why did you hate on Noble so much? Overall probably the right opener I think it was out of this or the US Title match but at the same time the US Title match seems a bit to big to open the show, so good choice. Match rating could have been higher but the Noble bitching out so much just turned me off a bit as he is meant to be a ruthless pitbull. You are probably the best for getting me in the feel of the characters and what they are thinking but this Noble thing was definitely the opposite to what I expect from him therefore ***

Nice Batista action in his locker room and this is what I meant earlier about capturing the characters and all there emotions and sticking to it. You did it very well here as we all know Batista has anger management issues and as much as I want Flair to win I think the big man is going to be to good especially if he brings the intense Batista that threw the chair not the dejected one.

JBL extremely confident and extremely pompous but what else was I meant to expect? Great JBL promo underlining how he is the dominant man and Haas is not at his level and I think this will prove to be true.

IC Title Match

JBL giving clean break on the first lock up was not a surprise to me it was actually quite expected it is obvious he is just trying to get inside Haas’ head. OOOOOHHHHH JBL slapping Haas and he is definitely going to cop it now. Okay so not sure about after the slap Haas trying to outwrestle JBL because of the slap I thought he would be all angry and go nuts throwing hands falling right into JBL’s trap. LOL at JBL getting woozy and falling on his ass after the Arm Drag, classic stuff there my friend. Haas capping off some ownage with a Suicide Dive and I loved the way Haas showed some cockiness as he used his quickness to piss off JBL. Vintage JBL using Angelina as a shield as he used to do that almost every night with Jillian Hall back in early 2006. Not saying he would not be able to but I am just curios would Haas be able to get JBL up for a Belly to Belly. JBL going outside the ring and begins to take Haas to school is a good move to make because it suits JBL’s smash mouth style. JBL then hitting three clothesline sin a row plus all the right hands and I could just picture the brutality and the vicious look on JBL’s face. Great counter from the Last Call into the DDT. Two Back Body Drops in a row is a bit to repetitive to be honest especially when Haas can do so many moves so I was quite happy to see you mix it up when Haas nailed an Exploder Suplex. German Suplex and once again I am sorry to put a damper on the match but I don’t know if Haas would be able to do that to JBL because JBL is dead weight. Liked how for a period including when Angelina tried to distract Haas he just seemed a step ahead of JBL really made me think perhaps he has a chance now. Far out bit of a shock ending a Clothesline From Hell out of nowhere and in what was a okay match JBL gets the win. ** 3/4 Sorry about the shitty rating but I am being honest and I really did not get into that match much.

Nice Flair promo by starting off still portraying the emotion that is involved in his match with Batista tonight and that is why it is the match I am most looking forward to. Then nice go home line to get himself and the fans riled up. Come on baby 17 times WOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Ric Flair vs Batista
OMG I am very excited about this match the story behind it has just been exceptional. HAHA love the start with Flair faking the hand shake but uhh is Flair trying to win by DQ or something because getting The Animal angry may not be the best move. Liked the start you were portraying Batista as the young lion with all the strength but Flair seemed to know what he was doing as he is the veteran and I loved the poke in the eye because its PPV LOL. OOOOOHHH I do not like out of nowhere Batista just started dominating and after the clothesline out of the ring Flair seems pretty busted up already. Bear Hug scared me a little bit to be honest because I could just picture it happening and it made me think to back in 2002 and Brock Lesnar’s Bear Hug to Hogan. Flair with some hands and a Back Suplex and so far its not the best wrestling in the world but the story just makes this match a whole lot better then what it is. Holy shit Flair actually hit a high risk maneuver this match has everything. A Couple of chop blocks and I think I know what Flair wants. OOHHHH I thought Flair had it locked in for a minute there but damn Batista and his big legs. LOL at the Headbutt to the groin and both men will be down now I think. WOOOOOOOO!!! Figure Four baby, I thought maybe it was going to be it but no Batista reverses it before Flair got to the ropes. Holy shit I really loved the way you made Batista hit a Spear out of nowhere and that would have taken heaps out of Flair due to Batista’s earlier offense. SpineBuster and I swear I thought that the Batista Bomb was coming but Flair reversed into a Jack Knife only to get a two count and then he walked straight into another SpineBuster. Batista Bomb and its all over and as much as this match ruled I am kind of disappointed because I can not see number 17 coming now. ****

The reunion of sorts of the Worlds Greatest Tag Team was a really cool moment but I could have imagined it becoming very awkward once Helms began to run his mouth.

Nice Michaels promo it was very clever how you kept on referring back to HBK’s past. I Lol’d at HBK calling RVD his herb lovin opponent and at insulting Maria and calling her dense without her even realizing. Kind of proved his point didn’t it.

Summer Games Gauntlet Match
Nice early start by Ken Doane taking John Morrison to school but to be quite honest I would not have had these two guys come in until a bit later because they could help make the match have a great ending. Doane dominated for a while but Morrison hit back and hit the Breakdance Leg DROP lol I really like that move. Springboard Enzuiguri and Morrison is beginning to let the spots come out and Doane is paying the price. Morrison went for the Corkscrew Moonsault but Doane gets his knees up and I could imagine that would hurt a little bit. Nice ending with Doane doing the whole face rampage, Melina getting in the way and Morrison picking up the pinfall. Here we go now Carlito comes out and I believe these two can go at it nicely as well. Far out a fresh Carlito did not last long as Morrison pretty much drops him into the turnbuckle face first straight away. WTF Carlito has been in for a while I got last half way through reading but Carly is starting to build some momentum and the Twisting Senton is only going to help his cause. Just as I say that he misses a Lionsault and it is right back to advantage Morrison. ROFL at Morrison blasting Melina in the face, it ain’t happening that is my job. Carly with the Backstabber and bye bye Morrison. Even though he is out great showing by Morrison hopefully more greatness from him to come. AWWWWW shit MVP one on one with Carlito would be a terrific confrontation and Carly better watch out because he is comin. MVP started off with an easy advantage here and Luther Reigns getting involved as well and I really can not see MVP losing this pinfall. Carlito hit the Moonsault and I though here we go don’t tell me your going to do a WWE and make MVP job straight away. MVP missed the Boot and got straddled on the ropes and for a second I thought it was Backstabber time but nope just a DDT. I love you Luther, LOL he sacrificed himself for MVP and that was the right option. Oh No now MVP has to deal with Angle and as much as I love MVP with Angle’s intensity I can see MVP getting eaten alive here. They went from Freestyle wrestling to triple Germans in a matter of seconds and it was a bit confusing but I guess that’s Angle for ya. MVP with a German LOL taste of Angle’s own medicine but its not over. Angle hits the Angle Slam and just like I thought MVP is done for already MVP with the win LOL and now besides MVP Armando Estrada and Umaga are my favorite wrestlers LOL. Umaga gets counted out that was a weird finish but I guess you want Umaga/Angle to continue and that was your way to do it but who cares because MVP has got himself a title shot and that is sick.****1/4

US Title Match
Wow very intense opening which was to be expected and I definitely see Hardy going over here or else he would look like a bitch. Nice start and smart heel tactic by Daniels getting the advantage when Hardy was preoccupied. Jumping Calf Kick by Daniels is a move I quite like however it ain’t going to finish off Hardy. Hardy once again begins to build momentum but Daniels uses his intelligence to stop the momentum by walking up the ramp. What was the move with his knee into his jaw or what ever I did not really understand it to be honest. Okay you cleared that up next line LOL sorry about that Split Legged Moonsault two count. I actually thought Hardy was going to build the momentum but Daniels cuts it off with the Back Breaker. Hardy with a Side Effect pretty much out of nowhere and now it is back to level pegging. So in other words now it’s the faces turn to shine. Holy Shit Daniels nailed the Blue Thunder Driver and I thought game over for sure but I guess Hardy or more importantly you have other ideas. Daniels now with a Death Valley Driver and I tell you right now this Daniels is being portrayed a s a freak here, he just does not stop. Crucifix Powerbomb by Hardy and it ain’t ending shit we have not even seen the Twist Of Fate yet. Hardy did not give up nails the Twist Of Fate and that is all she wrote. *** ½

Mickie James seems very scared of Vickie and all the signs point to saying new womens champion but knowing about your love for The Mick I could see her some how pulling another win out of her ass here.

Shawn Michaels vs RVD

Just thought I would start off by saying that the video package kind of owned but anyway lets get down to business. Nice start with Michaels straight away not letting no wrestling be done it makes me hate him more which is quite hard since he is a sick entertainer. RVD’s first bit of offense a Spinning Back Kick and I believe that from now the match will pick up a little bit. HBK trying to do the whole from behind thing but didn’t work out well and RVD nails an Enzuiguri and this is going to be a terrific up and down contest. Please I don’t want to see Reverse Chinlocks in this one. HBK uses his experience and brain to throw RVD out of the ring and now we see heel HBK at his best. I was just about to mention how well RVD is going and then HBK moves from RVD’s Spinning Kick from the apron and that has got to be enough for HBK to get advantage or else could edge towards a bit of unrealism. Nice for HBK to just dominate the leg but the thing I love about what you did here is the whole way through you continued to let HBK exude cockiness and that is how it has to be. I thought it was some nice poetic justice with RVD getting back into things with a poke in the eye because it is such a HBK move at the moment. HBK missing a CrossBody and I reckon that would hurt HBK’s ego a little bit as he considers himself a high flying specialist at big time events. RVD back in the game now building the momentum and even though he did not get the pinfall after the Split Legged Moonsault I believe this was a move to kind of let us know hey RVD has the momentum again. Vintage RVD now with the Kick to his face and HBK is in trouble. HBK misses another high risk move and RVD hits Rolling Thunder but once again HBK ain’t giving it up. Sweet Chin Music out of nowhere and I have noticed one thing you really do well is pull out big moves out of nowhere in a way that it still makes sense. HBK misses another SCM but then goes tot won with a Flying Forearm and the vintage HBK shit is about to come out. RVD with the Five Star for the victory and I loved the way you went into such detail when RVD was on the top rope and I can see a RVD title push perhaps coming along sometime soon **** ½

Holy shit Flair attacked WTF??? But I think it is Batista as you gave us sings throughout the contest and even through the aftermath that he was not happy with what was going on.

Mickie James vs Victoria
Nice the way Mickie was trying to stall and Vickie fooled her. And this match is going to have added excitement with the whole keep your eye on the clock situation. Far out this is a great start and Vickie is definitely a ferocious bitch here today as she just won’t leave Mickie alone. OOOOHHHH I flinched at Vickie falling back first into the steps that would really hurt. Vickie with a Monkey Flip and Mickie had the advantage for a second but she does not seem on her game here tonight. Standing Moonsault almost had it there and Mickie needs to rake the eyes or something. Was Mickie wearing her skirt attire because if so her choking Vickie with the legs would have been extremely hot Also I didn’t exactly understand Vickie flipping through the Hurricanrana but it sounded exciting. Mickie hits A Back Breaker and now all she needs to do is stall however I should not be giving advice as I am a Vickie fan through and through. Black Widow Facebuster and that was a close call and I believe within these next two minutes there is going to be a defining moment that wins or cost Vickie the championship. Sunset Flip by James caught me off guard and actually had me a bit worried for a minute there. Mickie DDT I thought that was hit so glad that Vickie got out of it though as don’t get me wrong I am not being biased James run has been a great read but I think its time for a change.WTF LOL all these pins coming out all at once quite smart stuff here mate. VICKIE GOT THE WIN AND KISSED MICKIE the match could not end in a better way and I was surprised because for a womens match I really enjoyed this. *** ¾

WWE Tag Team Championship Match
Wow very weird start to the match with The Hooligans going down a fall just to get one back I understand they are trying to get the upper hand but giving away a fall that early I don’t know. Benjamin gets out of a Drop Kick to the face and this guy is going to be sore tomorrow LOL he is already being dominated. Kendrick with the Double Foot Stomp and that would of hurt. Pretty good way to start this match I still can not get over the initial shock of what happened. For a minute there I thought Benjamin was finally going to do something but London quickly with the Drop Sault really snuffed that out. Far out Benjamin was going well then I thought he had the tag but no London has to come and get Helms again and for some reason in this match London is really shitting me. Benjamin finally gets the hot tag and now we are going to see what L and K are made of. Gutbuster I thought Helms had it after that but no this epic struggle between two of the greatest teams in BTB history go at it. Stinger Splash reversed by Kendrick with a Drop Kick and man that shit has got have really hurt. Kendrick hits Helms with SliceBread#2 and to be honest it was great because it was such a shock the way he just grabbed him out of the Roll Up and went BANG! What the hell then the modified Shooting Star Press and well that would have been a classic ending but Benjamin got in the way. OOOHHHHH trouble there with The Carolina Connection and I don’t know though two tag guys bumping into each other is usually a heel move. Kendrick breaks up Benjamins cover and The Hooligans have got a two on one advantage here. Double Superkick could have been it but geez Helms got up fast he must have went back to his Hurricane days and flew back into the ring Helms with Shining Wizard and that would just about eliminate Kendrick from the equation right? WTF T Bone and London got out that was not expected and I don’t know what else can be done in this match. Benjamin almost with the victory roll and I think the winning team will be decide don who recovers first out of Helms and Kendrick. Sneaky small package by London still cant get the three count and this is a great period of fighting between two great athletes in London and Benjamin. Benjamin wins with the Exploder Neckbreaker and what a terrific contest this was. In my opinion match of the night so far. *****

WWE Championship Match
Edge starts off with literally a fist of fury and then he lets his emotion get the best of him and Orton throws Edge out of the ring. Let the blood shredding begin. Wow you called it a Shoulder plowing LOL but I call it a Spear so in other words Edge just Speared Orton into a chair in the opening five minutes. Orton nice reversal Drop Kicking the chair into Edge’s face. Orton then Suplexes Edge on two steel chairs and this match is going to be brutal. Nice use of chairs and weapons by Orton, Edge in trouble early and after Orton threw Edge out of the ring he is obviously going to go for the belt. Smart by Orton jumping off the ladder then hitting a Modified Back Breaker and then shows his cockiness. I love the cockiness I thought this was his match is pure Orton.  Edge picks up the chair and goes crazy with three chair shots and it looks as if he may be in a bit of trouble. Edge then showing some of his own cockiness by sitting on the chair waiting for Orton and then rubbing it in by nailing Orton with the chair. Orton busted open but OMG so lucky that he rolled out of the way from the one man conchairto. Far out Orton very resourceful with the low blow and then nails my favorite move in the WWE at the moment the RKO. Great little bit of interaction on the ladder with Orton throwing the chair at Edge and then Edge knocking Orton off the ladder it was brilliant. Far out RKO through the table and it must have been a fair RKO to cover that distance but who cares it would have been awesome. Edge Spears Orton off of the ladder and that has got to hurt a little bit. Masters Powerbombs Edge through the table and to be honest I don’t like because this is meant to be the feud ender there should be no interference. Rhodes and Smith help out Edge here to even up the numbers and that better be all the interference. Lita just cost Orton getting the title right then what a crock of shit thank god she got what she deserved an RKO. The Edgecution by Edge to Orton and Orton took to long focusing on Lita. WTF. What a spot there with Edge nailing Orton through two tables one on top of him that was some freaky shit man. I admire your creativity. Edge wins as Orton is out of it and OMG what a huge fucking match. I give it a rating just below the tag match because the interference kind of ruined it for me. **** ¾

GGGRRRRR :@ Hearing that MVP gets his title shot tomorrow night makes me think that he will not win and if he loses to Edge who just went through hell tonight it is going to make MVP look like a bitch 

WOW some big announcements there by Vince McMahon and you are really laying it on thick here for this PPV. We are going to have a draft at Saturday Night’s Main Event and on Friday we going to find out who is going to be the new co GM of Smackdown. Please bring in Paul Heyman

World Heavyweight Championship Match
Great start with the staredown and then the throwing hands and then to top it all off both had early cracks at there finishers. This was a terrific way to start if rest of the match is that good it will be something special. Kennedy gets first clear cut advantage with a Clothesline over the top rope. Rock with Swinging Neck Breaker on the outside and that would actually hurt quite a little bit. Rock showing quite an aggressive side with him ramming Kennedy’s legs into the steel ring posts and I like it. I loved how you played on the affect that the leg damage was having on Kennedy and how it gave The Rock enough time to nail a Samoan Drop. Rocky with Spine on the Pine and then the Sharpshooter and he is hitting the vintage shit now and Mr Kennedy is in a bit of strife. Lucky for Kennedy he fought out of the Sharpshooter and then dodged Rocky and threw him over the top rope in what has been a shockingly one sided contest so far. Kennedy with an Enzuiguri and I am not saying he cant because I have not watched him that much but does Kennedy actually know how to do an Enzuiguri? LOL as if a kick to the face is going to finish off The Rock I can’t believe you actually wrote that could be it. Holy Shit Kennedy nailed the Green Bay Plunge and I thought it was over but Rocky shows his well known resilience to kick out. ROCK BOTTOM but no Kennedy gets up and this has been a great contest probably my favorite so far as Kennedy is one of my current favorites and The Rock is my all time favorite. I could not help but LOL when Kennedy tried to Kip Up but he hurt his leg. Kennedy wins with the Mic Check this was a great way to say goodbye to The Rock in this BTB and a great way to put Kennedy over. You should be proud of yourself mate because this is what I call a fucking all star match. *****

Nice little bit with The Rock and Kennedy to shake hands. Kennedy then does his little microphone work but WTF TRIPLE H IS BACK. MAC you are a sneaky little bastard LOL how do you come up with this shit. Triple H has his fun with Kennedy and then leaves and well Kennedy just got told and Triple H vs Kennedy for the World Title is what is happening right? OR HOW ABOUT WE JUST CROWN A NEW FUCKING CHAMPION IN BATISTA. FUCKING LEGENDARY STUFF MATE

Overall mate it was a pretty sexy show to be honest there was nothing at all to complain about. This was an excellent read and yeah everything was just terrific. And you have fulfilled everything everyone wanted in this PPV and at the same time you still have so much more places to go with some big time story lines. So well done mate on a terrific show I fucking loved it.

SummerSlam Feedback

Great video package that you did. Very basic and I like how you focused on the title matches but also through in some of the other rivalries. Should be an amazing show after all the build that it has gotten.

Tully on commentary owns. Hopefully he does well enough for you to replace King with him permanently.

Ten Man Tag Team Match:
Rey and Noble are good choices to start the match, as they are some of the best cruiserweights on the rosters and should provide a good battle for the opening minutes. Noble with the slap to Rey is the perfect way to start the match, with the heels proving just how little respect they have for anyone on SD!. Punk and Rey dominate for the faces in the opening minute, and CM looks ready to hit the GTS early, but that of course doesn’t happen, with Regal sliding off. Great action to follow up the exchange between Regal and Punk, as Finlay dominates while he’s in. Surprised that Chavo was being so easily handled during his time in the ring. It seemed like everyone got a piece of him but his determination kept the match going. Finally Chavito makes the comeback, taking Brown down with a nice Enziguiri. Kane starts to dominate when he steps into the ring, but Regal pulls out the knucks!! Kane makes the tag to Punk and now Regal gets the tag from Noble. Great spots to get everyone down on the outside, set up nice for the ending of the match. Punk is finally able to beat Regal … and pins him with the GTS~! I figured that since Punk looked like the leader of the heels, he’d probably be the one to pick up the pin fall. Very fast-paced opener and obviously this feud isn’t over, actually just getting started. Interested to see where these guys go after such a star-studded match. Great choice of opener, was very exciting. ***1/4

Damn, Batista is certainly dealing with some issues. Is he going to finally snap tonight? Guess we will just wait and see.

JBL is damn pissed off and he is going to try and destroy Haas tonight. Keep the IC Title on the “Wrestling Gawd” a little bit longer, plz.

Intercontinental Championship Match:
JBL get the advantage in the VERY early going, winning the tie-up and then hitting a dirty slap to the face, sending a message loud and clear to young Charlie. Haas is able to take that criticism and fight back into the match, letting his technical skills take over. Always the classiest on the roster, JBL using Williams to block Haas was brilliant and also gave Bradshaw the advantage. JBL with some power offense, the punches and then a Big Boot, but Haas slips out of the Powerbomb and ends up getting the belly-to-belly for the first near falls of the match. JBL then gets the advantage again, using his strength and also the stuff around ringside, getting a few near falls but nothing good enough to keep Haas down. Haas finally gets the advantage back and it looks like we are back to square one. Charlie misses the risky move, but then gets JBL with a German, but the Champion just barely kicks out!! Haas gets JBL to TAP … but Angelina is distracting the referee~! Haas tries again with a roll-up, but JBL won’t let that beat him again, barely kicking out. Clothesline from Hell!! JBL retaining was the right choice, but you did an awesome job of making Charlie look legit. I really hope that Haas doesn’t go back to being depressed, and I don’t think he will. He realized how close he came to winning and he is going to feed off that, imo. Rematch soon, plz. ***

Rocky only has one thing on his mind right now, and that’s winning the World Title tonight. Will be tough to beat KK, imo … but The Great One may get it done.

Intense promo by Flair, one of his best in a while. He somehow finds a way to beat Dave tonight, with the big man going a lil’ nuts after.

Money in the Bank Contract on the Line:
The difference in mood between these two is quite obvious. Flair is trying to get into Batista’s head by acting all happy, while Batista is simply focused on what he needs to do. Batista keeps his “mean streak” in the early going, shoving Naitch down to the mat with authority, something Flair obviously wasn’t ready for. Loved the poke to the eye from Flair, showing that he too can play by his own rules. Big Dave wastes no time going for his signature dominant offense, slamming Flair down to the canvas for the first near fall. Dave returns the words of Flair earlier in the match, as he now looks to be in complete control, using the ring to do his work, as Ric doesn’t look to be in a good spot. Flair is finally able to come back, going back to some dirty tactics before hitting the suplex and then a crossbody … but Batista gets back to his feet with ease!! Flair is able to keep the advantage, working over the leg of Batista before locking in THE FIGURE FOUR~! Dave is able to kick out a few times and keep the match alive, while Ric looks to be in complete control. Batista finally turns the legs over and then has the advantage, hitting a wicked Spear, but Naitch kicks out. Jackknife by Naitch … but Batista gets the shoulder up!! Another Spine Buster but then … THE BATISTA BOMB!! Batista is the new holder of the MITB contract!! Shocked to say the least, as I thought Flair was retaining for sure, with Big Dave going nuts after the match. The handshake and embrace was heart-warming, but Batista is still pissed off. I wonder how long it will be before he cashes in the MITB. Won’t be too long, imo … as that is what he’s been waiting for. Overall, a solid match with a surprising result, can’t wait to see what happens next for these two. ***

Wow, that was some major ownage by Helms. Benji was being cool with Haas but Greg, definitely the heel of the team, has some hard words for Charlie. This should make Haas even more determined the next time he faces JBL, which will be soon, plz.

Awesome interview from HBK, giving his match with RVD later some final hype. Michaels has been awesome at S’Slam, too bad I don’t see him getting the victory tonight. RVD’s time, imo.

Summer Games Gauntlet Match:
Great choice for the #1 and #2 entrants, as Doane and Morrison have all kinds of unfinished business. Should give an entertaining opening few minutes. Ken gets the advantage to start, taking John down with an impressive Lariat and then a dropkick, but the Guru of Greatest is able to come back and take control, before Doane comes back again with his unique offense. Entertaining five minutes, as Melina ends up being the deciding factor, as Doane can only fight her off for so long, before Morrison takes advantage of his valet, planting Ken with the Moonlight Drive for the three count. Morrison > Doane, and I’m very glad that you see that. ‘Lito is the next man out!! Should be entertaining to see how he and Morrison duke it out. Love the type of heel that Morrison is playing, trying to get out of harm’s way by leaving the ring, but Carly isn’t too into that, taking it to John with right hands. Surprised to see Morrison get back into the driver’s seat and he dominates, before Carlito is able to come back, and the line about Morrison blasting Melina in the face was EPIC. Carlito pins Morrison~! Makes sense that Porter is the next man in, after that heated confrontation between him and Carlito the past two weeks. ‘VP starts in the driver’s seat, really taking it to ‘Lito, getting a few good near falls. Loved the way that CCC came back hitting a few big moves but not doing enough to keep MVP down. The numbers advantage is just too much for Carly to overcome, as he gets taken down by the Playmaker, and is now out of the match. Here comes Angle~! Angle comes out on fire, taking Porter down with a trio of German Suplexes, but then MVP takes the cheap way out, taking Angle’s face into the turnbuckle. Porter tries desperately to put Angle away, but Kurt is far too fresh, taking MVP over with a ridiculous belly-to-belly suplex. ANGLE SLAM~! AAE and Umaga are out now? Estrada distracts the referee … LOW BLOW by MVP~! Porter rolls up Angle to eliminate him!! Shocked to say the least, as it now comes down to MVP and Umaga. Estrada calls Umaga from the ring?! MVP wins by count-out?? I am very confused and I hope to God that we get an explanation from AAE. MVP getting a title shot is nice but the main thing that comes out of this is the continuation of the feud between Angle and ‘Mags. Awesome match and I’m very interested to see where you take these men from here. ****

Unforgiven should be good, as we have no idea where the WWE Title picture goes from here. Can’t wait!

Angle is PISSED. Confrontation later between him and ‘Maga. I really hope so, tbh.

United States Championship Match:
Daniels has done pretty much everything possible to get into the head of Matt Hardy, but the U.S. Champion isn’t going to be one to sit around, as he goes right after Daniels to start the match!! Matt is pissed off to start the match, as he goes after Daniels on the outside, even grabbing Danger and then taking her down later on. Daniels, much like JBL, uses his valet to take advantage, and he gets a few near falls, but Matt will not stay down. Matt comes back with a wicked punch and then an awesome bulldog, getting back into the driver’s seat. Daniels tries to leave the ring but Matt won’t let him get away … sick move by Daniels, really holding Hardy in the palm of his hand. Split-legged moonsault was cool but Matt still gets the shoulder off the mat, keeping the match alive. A few more high-impact maneuvers, as Daniels continues to cover Hardy, but Matt doesn’t stay down on the mat. Matt comes back with the Side Effect~! Hardy crashes and burns after the Leg Drop and Daniels hit a Blue Thunder Driver, but Hardy gets his shoulder up AGAIN!! Daniels hits some of his biggest moves, but Hardy just can’t stay down, as Daniels tries everything in his arsenal, before Hardy ducks the right hand and finally hits the Twist of Fate~!! Hardy wins the match!! Huge win for Matt and I really hope that this loss continues to fuel Daniels, as this feud is very far from over, imo. A decenet match that did its job to keep this feud going, as we are beginning to see a whole different Matt. ***1/2

I don’t agree with Mickie, there isn’t enough time for Vicky to win the title, imo. Mickie to somehow keep the belt.

The Rubber Match:
Simply phenomenal video package that highlighted just how personal this feud has gotten. It started as just a challenge and now it has fully evolved into a personal war between two men who have no respect for each other. Rubber Match is really the only way to settle who the better man. Five months is a tremendously long time for a feud to go and yet you’ve kept it entertaining throughout. Well done. Michaels is a little too cocky about beating RVD, and that will end up costing him, imo. Michaels throwing out the “traditional” wrestling stuff is a great way for the match to start, would be a little unrealistic for this thing to start without any bad blood. HBK’s way too cocky in the opening minutes, and RVD makes him pay for it, as Michaels gets taken down at each and every turn. Figured that this would happen early. RVD makes Michaels pay on the outside, going after the surgically repaired back, but Shawn baits Van Dam in, getting a breather. RVD finally makes a mistake and I think that Michaels will try to end the match whenever possible, as he makes the first cover after barely any offense. Michaels works over the right leg … but Van Dam pokes him in the eye! I love the kind of matches that make faces do heelish things, tbh. Now HBK is the one to miss a risky move, as RVD moves out of the way of a crossbody and Michaels crashes on the outside. RVD gets a few near falls, as it looks like Michaels can’t get anything good going, as Van Dam is just too quick and good at avoiding big moves. Sweet Chin Music~! Michaels is way too worn down, but Van Dam almost gets counted down … Backlash replay?! NO! RVD moves out of the way … but Shawn comes back with a flying forearm. Michaels goes to the top for the elbow drop, but RVD gets back up. Loved the battle on the top rope, as Michaels looks for the Superplex … but HBK ends up being the one falling to the canvas!! Van Dam hits a HUGE 5-Star!!! RVD rolls over HBK … and it’s all over!! I loved the match, great choice to have RVD get the win to finally prove himself. HBK will always be in the main event but a loss here would have killed any chance that Rob had of getting back to the top of the card, imo. Michaels not going all out makes me think that a face turn is on the way. He knows that he was way too cocky, and he will admit it soon. This may not happen, but I just don’t see Michaels staying heel for much longer. Awesome match and domination of Van Dam made the show so far. ****1/4

FLAIR IS BLOODIED~! If anyone but Batista did this, I’ll be shocked and demand an explanation. But the question is … why?? Big Dave already has the briefcase!!

Pyscho Edge and calm, sociopathic Orton. Doesn’t get any better than this. TLC is gonna be a WAR.

Women’s Championship Match:
One of the greatest feuds in Women’s Championship is about to reach its climax tonight, and that V.P. was phenomenal. Didn’t realize how much has gone into this feud and it is going to see the next chapter tonight, as Victoria tries to finally get the belt she deserves. Mickie’s demeanor hasn’t changed a bit, as I thought she may be a little more confident tonight, but it doesn’t seem to be the case, as Mickie is pretty much terrified of Vicky. Time to get this bitch started. Intense action right off the bat, as Mickie tries to duck (not surprised, tbh) Vicky but the raven-haired diva continues the assault, taking Mickie down with a clothesline. James gets out of the Rear Naked Choke quickly, and the back and forth continues from there. Loved the move by Victoria to jump onto the steel steps … but Mickie does the smart thing and sweeps the legs!! Mickie desperation is showing, with two near falls, trying her best to put Vicky away. Victoria is starting to show her impressive arsenal, taking Mickie down with countless athletic moves, loving the moonsault, but she can’t put the Champion away quite yet. Mickie just keeps kicking out of pin falls and Vicky is unable to keep her down, as the champ comes back with a few near falls of her own, as the match moves into the latter stages. Mickie-DT!! Victoria gets the foot on the rope!! Mickie has the advantage, as only a minute and a half remain, while Vicky must hurry if she ever wants the Women’s Title. Victoria tries all kind of crazy covers, but Mickie just won’t stay down, as only thirty seconds remain!! Mickie tries to run away once again … GOODNIGHT KISS~! WIDOW’S PEAK!!! VICTORIA IS THE NEW WOMEN’S CHAMPION!!! Well, I guess this was the smart choice. Vicky had been built so well and I thought maybe you’d pull a fast one and give Mickie the win, but then the Women’s Division would be out of whack. Obviously going to see the rematch at the next PPV, but I have no idea what is going to happen to Mickie. She was unstable to begin with … imagine how she will be after this loss. Great match, the best Women’s match I’ve ever read. ***3/4

How long will Flair be gone for? ‘Til S’Series, imo.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match:
Speaking of a night of awesome feuds, this one’s set to conclude in what is sure to be epic fashion. L&K were the best tag team in the company for a long time, but now the CC have that distinction. Seeing as Benjamin and Helms just won the belts, they win this match, imo. Spank grabs the tag title belt!! And he drops Helms with it!! Then he takes down Benjamin!! The CC win the first fall but DQ … but then Shelton gets taken down by S.B. #2 and the 450 Splash!!! Just 1:27 in and we are now going one fall to a finish!! I love this move by The Hooligans, as this feud has gotten more personal over the past few weeks and a thirty minute match like at the GAB wouldn’t make sense, as this is all about winning the belts. Love how both teams are now tweeners, really makes things interesting. London almost gets the pin fall but Shelton is able to stay alive. Kendrick seems to be the bigger heel, as he takes Greg down on the outside, and Paul looks for another pin fall, which Helms breaks up. Benjamin is really the bitch of the match thus far, getting taken for a ride and taking the big moves from L&K, but is actually able to stay alive. Shelton is trying so hard to make the tag to Helms, but the Hooligans are so focused on winning that their strategy has become apparent, don’t let Benjamin catch his breath at all, as Helms is taken off the ring apron. Shelton gets the momentum going again, hitting the Dragon Whip and then the Enziguiri … finally taking in Gregory!!! Not the CC is starting to get rolling, going after L&K with a ton of double teams, including the awesome gutbuster, but Kendrick is able to break that pin fall up. Kendrick is proving to be a STUD in this match, taking Helms down and then hitting Sliced Bread #2 … doing almost all the work for his team. London hits the awesome Shooting Star … but Benji saves the titles!!! Shelton is now flying all over the place, taking Kendrick out on the outside before coming back into the ring and … TAKING OUT HELMS ON ACCIDENT~!! Love the difference between the two men on each team, with Kendrick dominating on the outside, while Shelton dominates on the inside, really shows how well these two squads are matched up. A few more near falls, as this match has been nothing but nonstop action, with all four men flying around at 100 MPH. Shelton hits the T-Bone!!! London kicks out!! Great action between London and Benjamin, as Helms and Kendrick both seem out of it. Near falls all over the place, with Shelton having the clear advantage, while London almost steals a victory. The finish was absolutely phenomenal … as BENJAMIN DAMN NEAR BREAKS THE NECK OF LONDON!!! Quite the way for the match to end and I thought it was smart for a few reasons. First, it makes Helms and Benjamin look like the better team without a doubt, as a roll up or screwy finish would make them look weak as the champions. Second, Shelton got the fall and London took it, just like at the GAB. Gonna make Kendrick mad, imo … split on the way?? Where do both teams go from here?? Not really sure who the next challenger will be for the CC. Rey/Chavo?? New Breed?? Someone else?? Can’t wait to see what happens after this fantastic match. ****1/4

No Mercy sounds good … I’d go to the show, considering it’s in Chicago.

KK~ Should be an awesome match between him and Rocky. Don’t disappoint.

WWE Championship Match:
The V.P, which we saw on Raw, truly showed what this feud has been all about. Eight months of desperation, of regret, or back and forth that all comes to a head here tonight. Orton has taken everything from Edge, and now The Rated R Superstar got the title back, but still hasn’t gotten revenge on Orton. That is still to come tonight. No better way for this match to start than by having both men go at it with right hands all over the place, as we know the match is going to go at a ridiculous pace. The exchange on the outside was good, as Orton and Edge both do some early damage, with Edge getting taken down by a dropkick and Orton being thrown into the steel. Very shocked to see Orton get the early advantage, as it seems like Edge’s emotions are too much for him to handle, while Orton is cool as ever, taking Edge down with a steel chair shot and then some suplexes onto the chair, doing as much damage as possible. Orton climbs the ladder but probably knows that he won’t get close, as he continues to dominate the WWE Champion. Loved the arrogance from Orton, shows why he is so awesome and also so hated. One of my favorite wrestling characters in history, tbh. Edge then goes a little psychotic, as he needed to find a way back into the match. Steel chair shots a plenty before finally nailing Orton across the face … BUSTING HIM WIDE OPEN~. Conchairto misses … and then Orton HITS THE RKO!! Orton makes it pretty far up, but there’s no way that this match is ending right now, but Randy still holds the advantage, headbutting Edge off the top. Orton tries to nail Edge with the chair a few times … but Edge pushes Orton off the top of the ladder and to the outside!!! Both men are down, as the match is anyone’s right now, with the war beginning to unfold. Orton just misses taking a huge shot … RKO THROUGH THE TABLE!! Orton has been in control for much longer than I thought, with Edge having yet to hit any of his big moves. Edge Spears Orton off the ladder!!! Edge begins to stack the table … AS THE RATED R ARMY COME DOWN TO THE RING~!! Masters and Mercury take out Edge and get the ladder ready for Orton … RHODES AND SMITH~?! WTF?? Haven’t seen these guys in forever, better be a good explanation for this one, Mac. Orton looks set to grab the title … but here comes LITA! Knew that she would show her beautiful self … only to get RKO’d!! Now it is just down to the two men who HATE each other, as the back and forth continues. SPEAR~!! Edge climbs the ladder and can easily win the title … BUT HE TAKES OUT ORTON … THROUGH THE TABLES!! To quote Joey Styles, “OH MY GOD!!” Edge gets his much needed retribution, before he slowly climbs the ladder … AND KEEPS HIS TITLE!!! Edge wins the match and the war was absolutely fantastic. The wreckage shows just how much both men gave to this match. What’s with the final sentence?? Surely the biggest face on Raw won’t be turning heel?? Please no. Anyway, an amazing match to (I hope) end the feud between these two. ****1/2

MVP gets the shot TOMORROW NIGHT?? Seems a little early and I am very intrigued as to what you will do. Surely Edge won’t lose, but I don’t wanna see MVP get buried. Interesting to say the least.

No shock to me or anyone else watching that the Draft Lottery is what Vince’s announcement is. Should be a good edition to SNME. Not really sure I see the WWE or World Champion changing, as Unforgiven is only 8 days after SNME, so it’d be weird. But who knows. ‘Taker~!? Guess we know that the return is coming soon. I never expected Vince to fire Steph, but I did think we’d see Hunter or Cena. 2 SD! GMs? That should be interesting. SD! has so many awesome storylines right now, it’s ridiculous, tbh.

World Heavyweight Championship Match:
I understand the reasoning for not having the V.P. for this match written out in full, but they have been around each other for almost three months. Sure they weren’t feuding the entire time, but this is more than just a match with five weeks of build. This is when we find out, without any doubt, if KK is a true Champion. He will be a proven one if he can beat The Rock … something I think he’ll do. The old-school introductions were great, really gives the match an even bigger feel, imo. The exchange of right hands was perfect for the start of the match, as both men are trying to prove why they are the best. And of course nothing is decided early. ROCK BOTTOM THIS EARLY!? Didn’t think so. The trash talk by KK was hilarious after he threw Rocky over the top rope, but then The Great One got the best of the exchange, dropping the WHC with a neckbreaker, kicking this match into a higher gear. Rocky is just dominating the match outside the ring, as he taking someone of a heel approach, slamming the knees of Kennedy into the ring poster multiple times. LMAO at “Mister Jabroni” … classic Rock, tbh. Finally Kennedy gets in some offense, taking Rocky back with an elbow, but that doesn’t stop TGO, as he goes for the SharpShooter … but Kennedy powers out. Rocky finally gets the first near fall of the match, taking Kennedy down with a neckbreaker, but of course we see the K.O. Spine Buster and then … THE SHARPSHOOTER!!! Rocky’s version of that classic submission is amazing, tbh, love the way he applies the most pressure that he can. Kennedy is getting very close to the ropes but Rock continues his “heel-like” offense, stomping the back. Kennedy is able to get back into the driver’s seat, owning The Rock both verbally and physically, as he gets a few near falls. GREEN BAY PLUNGE~! ROCK KICKS OUT!! Rock comes back with a head of steam, hitting the belly-to-belly and then … ROCK BOTTOM~! KENNEDY GETS THE SHOULDER UP!! Some more back and forth until … PEOPLE’S ELBOW~! KENNEDY KICKS OUT AGAIN!! KENTON BOMB~ … but The Rock moves out of the way!! Awesome amount of reversals, as both men are trying to hit a finisher … MIC CHECK~!! KENNEDY RETAINS!!! Great show of respect from both men after the match, with the handshakes always getting the crowd happy. A pretty good match that did the job it was supposed to do, get KK over as the face of SD!. Great job. ****

TRIPLE H IS IN THE BUILDING~! GAB repeat?? Kennedy waves Triple H and tries his hardest, before it becomes apparent the physical toll that his match with Rocky took, as Hunter lays him out with the Pedigree!! Stephania may have reached her breaking point, as Triple H gets away before the security guards can get close to him. Kennedy is laid out, his SummerSlam ruined … BATISTA~!! DAVE IS CASHING THIS BITCH IN NOW?! The blood of Flair is on the MITB, affirming everything everyone though earlier, as Batista goes right after KK. DEMON BOMB … BATISTA IS THE NEW CHAMPION~!! Simply amazing writing, Mac. Batista’s character has changed so much, as he is not only the nastiest S.O.B. on the roster, but we may have seen a bit of regreat on his face. Dave is the World Champion again, but you know he probably has mixed emotions. Not the way that I saw KK’s title reign ending, tbh … at least not before I saw that Flair was bloodied. Throw in the fact that KK/Rock was the last match even while Orton/Edge had been building for six months. The foreshadowing was there, but the actual occurrence was one of the most shocking things in BTB history. SD! can go any number of ways. Personally, I see KK feuding with Triple H in a possible #1 contender’s feud while Batista faces either Cena, ‘Taker or Rock, before Ric returns. Eventually, I can see Kennedy getting the belt back, but I have no idea when. This won’t get a star rating because it wasn’t really a match, but this was the best “segment” I have ever read from you.

GOD DAMN~! That was one hell of a PPV. Like Legend said, the matches weren’t all they could have been, but that is to be expected when ten are on the card. MOTN for me was the TLC match, followed by CC vs. Hooligans. The ending, as I previously stated, was phenomenal. You somehow keep me interested for more, as your storylines keep getting better and better. I don’t think you will ever fall into a rut, tbh. I know it may be another week or two before Raw is posted, but I just can’t wait for the fallout from this show and also the Draft at SNME. One of the greatest PPVs in BTB history, no doubt in my mind. 95/100.
