Re: Presenting: Paul Heyman's Evolution Pro Wrestling.
JAEíS ENSLAVED REVIEW
I have adapted a new reviewing style, for each segment and match, I probably will not say much about it, but I will point out the good and bad thing obviously, and observe those little details as I found it annoying when no one paid attention to the small things I included.
The entrance of Edge was written very well, some new words which is great, and good stuff with the commentary when Heyman remained silent. The opening promo of the night, and I am pumped, Edge delivered it nicely, nothing too bad, but Edge got a bit boring near the end of his promo. Christian coming out gave it some spice, and it seems he is the good guy of this confrontation. Edge broke kayfabe a lot when talking about the Royal Rumble, his contract and Wrestlemania, and thatís an immediate minus in my books. The finish to this segment was excellent, Christianís final line did a lot and had a good effect, nice start.
The latest show seems ages away, as I have done a lot of reviews in between that and this, so I am absolutely lost in this situation with Aries and Danielson, I swear I saw them in a singles match together before. The whole quick entrance and nose to nose encounter showed a lot of heat and intensity between these two, which, I assume, is what you wanted to convey. Well, this match was half a brawl, which is weird especially with guys of this caliber, and the finish was poor in my opinion. A feud is brewing most definitely though, which is exactly what this promotion needs.
Too short, thatís all I can say, yeah you might have wanted it short and simple but Iím thinking a few more sentences next time.
These announcement didnít do it for me, everything seemed a bit awkward, the speech was slightly off and the flow wasnít good either. The Pay Per Views sound good, Out of Exile is an awesome name, Redemption has been used before but is good too. Being in the Hammerstein Ballroom is a wise choice, but Iím not too sure about going two hours already. This reminds me a lot of my PWE, the Pay Per View announcements, the two hour time slot, the owner coming out to address the fans about them, looks like we can relate a lot in booking. But yeah, now that I have nothing coming back at me for these reviews, I only review the shows that I enjoy reading, and Enslaved is one of them. Once it goes longer, I donít know if I would read, but donít let one person stop you man. The matches set were randomly announced, I didnít like that, but Benoit versus Lesnar and the triple threat looks to be really good, I love Christian as face.
Ah I remember now, Danielson walked out on Aries last week right? Seeing the Worldís Greatest Tag Team in EPW is great, I hope to see Benjamin and Haas to be used well, the LAX I donít know much about so I donít give a damn. The insults Haas gave them were all bad, the thing about passports, immigrants, just didnít work out.
Nice build up for this match, Benoit versus Lesnar, Iím sure this will do nothing but impress.
Chicken Hunting, never heard of that for Mooreís theme song, but Iím glad that you brought the Prince of Punk into this thread, I am a big mark for this guy so top marks already. Surprisingly, Moore got a lot of offense in against Lesnar, even hitting his finishing Halo, that is a good thing for me, but a bad thing for realism in my opinion. Lesnar kicking out was needed, and saying he did it with authority added to it. Five minutes to win against Moore? I donít know, probably would take him faster to get the job done, but I guess you wanted some good matches in the show.
Before I begin on the main event, another detail I would like to point out for you. We also just saw another awesome display, that is quite awkward, instead of awesome, next time try a better word.
A hell of a main event, twenty full minutes of action, thatís a damn lot man. The blood gave this match some credit, so did the use of surrounding objects like the chairs and announce table. I think it is very weird that the referee was raising the hand of Hassan when he was in a ground submission, the Walls of Jericho, maybe you shouldíve just had Hassan struggle around and be on the verge of reaching the ropes. Wow, I completely forgot about Samoa Joe in this show, and what a nice rush of superstars from here on. I donít know how to express this, but your booking in this match was incredibly good. You made Hassan advance as he didnít have any proper feuds, you continued Jericho versus Joe, Edge versus Christian, and Lesnar versus Benoit, all in one match! And you even shoved Rhyno in there too for extra entertainment, I think thatís why you did it, but honestly, great job.
With no doubt in my mind, this was your best show, I found it entertaining all the way through and I see you improving heaps from your first show. The match lengths were great, Lesnar versus Moore wasnít all that great but manageable for me, the main event was top notch. Promos were okay, the opening one and Konnan one were good but the rest were either awkward or poor in length. The feuds are coming along very nicely and itís great to see some more new guys in the company, but remember not to pump them in every week. The two hour time slot, I am not too fond on, but the Pay Per Views sound awesome and the television deal will probably be done. Like I said, I have a new reviewing style and I personally think it is really good, I hope you do too. Sorry this was late, but as you can see, itís quite a long one. 9/10
