Alim's Smackdown Review
This is my first review in like 2 months, so I'm kind of rusty lol. I liked the opening promo. I'm not a big fan of Batista and I'm an even lesser fan of his mic work, but you actually made him sound decent on the mic. I didn't know what happened last week because I haven't been following, but by the looks of it, Edge gave Batista a spear and now has some help from Miz and Morrison. I like the fact that you have this little stable just like the Majors/Edge in real life, hopefully Edge takes the title with their help at Survivor Series. 2 on 3 handicap match for later on, it's going to be interesting to see if Batista and Umaga can work together or not.
I like this Cruiserweight title picture you've set up. You have eight guys who really want to be champion, and the division looks solid. I'm not sure if the elimination match at Survivor Series with the Cruiserweights is a tag team match or one of those Cruiserweight opens, please clear that up for me. The match itself was very good, I like the detail you had in it even though it was just the ending. Lots of fast paced action, which I like and always gets the crowd going, which is a great move to start off the show. I noticed Sydal did a SSP, so I'm guessing the whole move restriction thing is not that strict, which is good.
Very, very good segment here my friend. Very enjoyable to read. I'm not sure on this whole situation with Team Orton and Team HBK, but I guess I'll catch up on that soon enough. With HBK wanting a World Title shot, I have a feeling that his team is going to be winning at Survivor Series, and hopefully, he does get the title shot.
You have a huge thing for new talents, Matt Sydal, Harry Smith, Johnny Jeter, and that was evident in your last thread too, and I think that's a good thing because you're making the effort to mould new superstars. UK Pack looks strong with the win here, had a feeling anyways.
Glad to see you're giving the Cruiserweight division a lot of time on the show. The situation seems to be heating up because everyone wants the title so bad, I expect a really solid match at Survivor Series.
I was laughing the whole time during the Estrada promo. It wasn't bad, I was just laughing because of the way Estrada was talking. "Ju" lol. That was a good promo, and you certainly had Estrada in character. I don't expect Umaga to win on Sunday though.
Good match here with Undertaker and Kevin Thorn. I'm not really a fan of Kevin Thorn, but you made him look good by having him keep up with Undertaker. I liked the finish where Thorn tried to reverse the Tombstone, but Taker reversed back and nailed his Tombstone. For some reason, this match seemed like a pay-per-view match.
Lol at this promo too. Like Bradley mentioned, the contrasting styles of MVP and Finlay made this promo funny. You have the arrogent MVP, and the Irish Man, Finlay, but, the promo was still good. Looking forward to the match later on in the show.
More Shawn on the show, works for me! HBK kind of seemed like the cocky, arrogent SOB he was back in the day, just a tad bit though. You're hyping their match at Survivor Series really well, and I can't wait. And I lol'd once again at the start of the promo, Anastacia the singer.. lol.
Great match here. An attack on Batista by Umaga was coming for sure, I knew that right off the bat, but I'd still think Batista would pick up the win somehow, probably by a DQ. I'm glad Edge got a pinfall victory over the champ, even if it was a little cheap, I mark for Edge.
Survivor Series looks amazing, and you've stacked the card once again Nige. I look forward to reading the show.
Very enjoyable main event, blockbuster imo. Great length. You're just writing endings to matches, but imagine if you wrote them out in full
. The ending was pretty not bad. I don't like Orton and Kennedy coming on Smackdown and interfering in the match, even when William Regal said they won't be on the show, but the surprise factor was there and the ending didn't make anyone looking weak heading into the pay-per-view.
Overall, very good show. You've improved a lot, and I look forward to reading Survivor Series. Best of luck man!
