Nige's Smackdown Review
First of all I love the way you had William Regal pronounce Umaga as 'U-manga' This was comedy genious on your part lol. This brings me onto the opening promo. I loved the way you captured Batista's emotion throughout. But like some others have said, I didn't like the way he went from emotional to the kind of comedian. Edge coming out with his faction was a good addition to the promo, and unlike the others, I think having them come out made the promo more exciting. This feud is really hotting up, and something tells me that it will continue after Survivor Series.
The opening match seemed alright. I kind og got a bit bored throughout though. I have to admit that your cruiserweight division is pretty good at the moment. Sydal and Jeeter are wrestlers that I am not too knowledgeable on, threrefor I don't really like reading them. but I'm sure that over time they will start to grow on me
A very interesting segment here Nige. It has made me sway towards team HBK winning on Sunday. Before this I actually had my sights set on Team Orton. With Raw not being here tonight things should go well for Smackdown. I am getting a little bit confused though with talent going on different brands, but maybe that's because I havn't read many other shows.
The second match was another good one. It showcased your skills as a match writer. I like how you have DH Smith in this thread, and I'll be expecting a push for him in the forseeable future.
The backstage segment with the cruiserweight was alright. It just made it clear that anyone can win the match at Survivor Series, which makes it all that more exciting.
Estrad was gold in this segment. It was good that you didnt have Umaga talk as much, but it would have been cool to see him roar or something. I am looking forward to the match later because I don't think Batista and Umaga will get along at all, that's why it's such a brilliant idea.
Undertaker getting the win against Thorn was obvious, but it was good to see Thorn have a bit of offence in the match.
I wasn't too fond of this next segment between MVP and Finlay. They were in character and all but I just thought it was a bit boring. It did it's job however ny hyping Survivor Series a bit more.
After this next segment I can't help but think Randy orton will show up. I don't know why I just do. Michaels was bloody brilliant in this interview. Am I right in saying he still has his DX persona?
I knew that Umaga and Batista wouldn't get on. It was gold how you deliverd this match, IMO it should have been the main event. I can see why this wasn't the main event, because hyping Team Orton vs Team HBK is needed. I really think Michaels will be going for the World Championship now because he is getting more hype than the champion tonight. Edge getting a in over Batista makes me believe Batista is winning the belt this Sunday.
The main event was deffinatly match of the night. I knew Orton and kennedy would show up I could just see it. So there was no suprise factor for me there becuae I could just see it. I love the fact that everyone looks strong going into Survivor Series and I can tell it's going to be a brilliant PPV.
Overall, I am sorry about being crap at reviews Nige. I havn't really done one before properly. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it sooner or later though eh. Overall a great show and I loved reading it. Can't wait for the PPV.
