DH6's Raw Feedback
~Sorry for the lateness.
Orton was in much better character than he was on SmackDown, so I'll credit you on this improvement. He sounded more like a cocky heel, which suits him perfectly. It didn't make a lot of sense when Randy said "Shawn calls himself Mr. WrestleMania, but that should be my title because of my record at the Survivor Series." Why would Orton get called Mr. WrestleMania if he has an excellent record at the Survivor Series? I wasn't quite sure if learning about Orton's past Survivor Series was the greatest idea, but it got the message across that he's good at Survivor Series, and that Shawn's team better watch out. Shawn coming out was predictable, but it was a good thing for him to come out. Shawn was in amazing character! I could picture everything he was saying and how he would saying and how he would say it. Super Job!! These two work well together on the mike, imo, and I think that you took advantage of it. I like how Shane's filling in as General Manager. I've always been a fan of him being a General Manager. The main event made was huge, and quite the thing that if any other team member interferes, they will be suspended on the spot.
Undertaker versus Kennedy was a match I was looking for. The finish was good to build up that the Survivor Series match could go either. You're a great match writer, and now how to use moves properly. It was good for Kennedy to run away like that, because that's who he is and it fits his character. I was surprised that there was another commercial break before a promo or segment, but I guess a match between these two would take up the whole length before the commercial break.
I'm not sure if Michelle was acting flirty because she's a diva or because something's starting between her and CM Punk. Punk seems pretty confident about the Survivor Series match, which is good. He was in great character here, and I couldn't really find any flaws.
It was good for Coach to suck up to Vince, because that's what he always is trying to do. I'm sort liking what's happening with the McMahon family. Having them implode is turning into a great storyline.
I sort of thought that this match should have been the first match, not Undertaker vs. Mr.Kennedy. It was a solid finish, and may lead to a mini feud over the next few weeks between these two. That would be good for these two. Rhodes doesn't have much of a moveset, other than a Missile Dropkick, so I'm glad that it felt like Burke was carrying Rhodes through the match.
I've always liked Steph and Trips as a couple in WWE, so I'm glad that this is happening. I'm really eager to see what Triple H is going to say tonight. I'm so eager, that I want to skip to where he does talk, but of course I wouldn't do that. Anyways, a nice short segment here that was interesting.
This next match turned out to be better than I thought. I briefly skimmed (very sorry) but from what I read, it was exciting and was written well. It was good for Punk to build some momentum going into Survivor Series. I feel like he's at an Intercontinental Title level, not a World Title level, so this is good booking on your part.
This segment was very short, but it was really interesting. It left me eager and hanging on a thread, which was really good. Maybe they'll make up some plan to eliminate the other team, and then get down to the two of them. If that's the case, I hope that doesn't happen.
It's not very often a diva gets interviewed, which is a damn shame cos they have so much talent. You're really hyping up all three women as potential threats, and Beth attacking Mickie was good. Victoria should have been involved somehow, because not having her on the show will make her look weak going into Survivor Series. At this point, there's really no way that she'll win the title unless she makes an appearance on the show.
This next match would've been very entertaining in my eyes, and I would've paid to see it. I didn't start reading your thread until your last SmackDown, so I can only assume that the other team members fought last week. There was some good action, and Kendrick getting the win was a good choice in my mind. I'm not sure who your tag champs are, but for some reason, I'm pulling for a heel team to win at Survivor Series, preferably the champions if they're heel.
Orton's team is being built up quite strong, but it's Survivor Series, and a lot of the time it's the face team that wins. However, with that said, I won't be surprised if Orton's team gets the victory. There's so many possibilities of what could happen, and I'm really looking to this match the most. Orton and Kennedy's character was alright, not the greatest, but still average, and that's all I'll ask for. They'll develop, because you're a booker who's always improving.
This was a cute little promo between Michaels and Jericho. Good way to put them over and show that they're together, but it would be a huge twist if one of them turned on the other at Survivor Series.
~Survivor Series is shaping up nicely. I will place a formal prediction (winners and why) after SmackDown is posted, but for now, I will post who I think will win. Depending on what happens later, that may change. Winners: Team HBK, Edge, Triple H, Jeff Hardy, Mickie James, Chavo Guerrero, Londrick, The UK Pack -- The show looks great, and I'll be reviewing it along with your next SmackDown
So this was Marella's and Burke's plan? Take out Jeff Hardy so that he won't be in a good condition on Sunday? Pretty good booking in my eyes, and I like it. This was a great way to hype up the Intercontinental Title match at Survivor Series because you had all of the competitors in the match brawl. CM Punk has quite a bit of momentum, but for som reason feel that Jeff Hardy will retain.
Yay! Victoria is involved! Now she actually has a chance to win the title match at Survivor Series. I had a feeling you wouldn't forget her, and it's good booking wise that you didn't. Victoria sounded badass, and I liked it. It wasn't the greatest idea to have Beth intimidated and look worried. I figured that they would get right up in each other's faces before Victoria left.
This match was great, and I liked Michaels and Jericho getting the victory, especially with big moves like Sweet Chin Music and Codebreaker. This gave them a lot of momentum heading into Survivor Series. I figure that all eight men will brawl on SmackDown since they didn't do it on Raw.
Triple H seemed really sympathetic, but I could really feel how deep his character was getting. It wasn't really deep or anything, but it had some depth to it. [I'm obsessed with the word deep
] I didn't really like how Triple H kept delaying what he was going to say. The fans would get angry. A huge shock for Hornswoggle not being Vince's son. It's funny cos I just did something very similar in my thread (as you know). I never really liked the whole 'Hornswoggle McMahon' thing, and I'm so happy that you dropped it. The Pedigree was also good, imo. A solid main event segment to say the least,
Overall, another fantastic show brought to you by Nige. The only flaws I can find are very, very minor, so this show was great. I love the storylines and feuds you've got going here, and stick with them!
