Re: WWE: A Strong Response
Jamie1 Presents Nige with a Survivor Series review
As you will already probably know Nige I am new to this Forum so have not been able to see your shows and all the build up to this card but I do want to say the card looks absolute brilliant, I looked over some parts of Raw and Smackdown, I really only read the last promo and last match as I feel that is usually when most things happen and what I did pick up on was the Stephanie McMahon, Triple H and Mr McMahon angle you are currently carrying and I got to say you are really making it entertaining so far, Stephanie and Triple H husband and wife was obvious to all and if you watched the WWE or WWF as it was called then around late 1999 you would know about this but you have decided to bring this into your BTB and I believe it is a very good idea. Anyway I will now begin to review the show
OK the opening credits with the narrator was good if you are going for the true Survivor sort of thing and really trying to show what this pay-per-view is all about but I would have prepared to see more on the matches, I know the videos showed the rivalry of all the matches but I believe the narrator should have something to say about at least Mr McMahon and Triple H, the huge street fight match but anyway your choice and at the end of the day it does not matter
The tag team championship I felt was a good match to open the show like DH6 above said especially due to the fact that we have two of the best athletes in the match knowing as London and Kendrick, OK the match started with Lance Cade and Stevie Richards, unlike the last reviewer I was not surprised that you only had two men in at the start as it is a tag team match, Anyway Richards showed a little bit of dominance to begin with before Cade got the upper hand, I liked the way Cade tagged in Deuce instead of his own partner as that is what usually happens and it was good to see, I felt throughout the whole of the match Deuce was rather dominant when he was in the ring and I was glad to see this, I was thinking Deuce and Domino had a good chance of winning which I would not have minded, anyway Dreamer finally got the upper hand over Deuce and tagged in his partner Dreamer, I was glad to see their was a pop for Dreamer, Dreamer did start well when he came into the match but soon Deuce got better, I feel you made Dreamer look a little weak at this point, Anyway first team to go out was Dreamer and Stevie Richards which really did not surprise me, are they on the Smackdown or Raw roster now? Anyway I think it is better keeping the Extremists away from the tag titles, Moving on London finally gets into the ring, thank you Murdoch, London going for a huge move before he has even stepped in the ring was typical of London and I was glad to see this, him not connecting was maybe a good thing as It kept Deuce and Domino in the match a little longer, Deuce and Dominos elimination was obvious to me unless you pulled plain stupidity and put out the two best talents London and Kendrick but I knew you would not do this, I loved the way Deuce and Domino got put out, great teamwork showing, the match went on and it was down to the champions and the challengers, to be honest Nige I skipped a couple of small paragraphs when it was down to the last two tag teams just so I could read the last two small paragraphs, anyway London and Kendrick got the win, you don’t how happy I was to see this, now a little credibility in the tag titles again, Good way to kick of the pay-per-view and it makes me want to keep on reading
Shane and Stephanie McMahon promo was just brilliant, their were no faults in this promo and that is a surprise coming from me, I usually find something but I could not in this one, Nige you got the character of these two to the best you could, I really do mean that, the realism was very good as I could picture these two talking to each other like this, Stephanie on the phone to Linda, I am actually sitting picturing it, this was just brilliant and what a way to keep me and all the other bookers interested, who is Mr McMahon’s son, I do not have a clue but I am sure will find out, hopefully by the end of this show but I doubt it, I am sure you will keep this going for a little longer, another question I ask myself is Shane going to keep the secret or will he screw Stephanie and Triple H, will Shane end up siding with his dad, we seen at Wrestlemania 21, well I am sure it was that when Stephanie backed up her dad over Shane, will Shane now back up his dad over Stephanie, this could get interesting
OK the next match another tag team match, I am not sure no well I am actually it is Survivor Series LOL, OK Nige I did not have enough time to read all of this match so I very quickly skimmed threw it and really only read the last two paragraphs, The Worlds Greatest Tag Team and Masters picking up the win was good, I am really sorry Nige I just cannot think of anything else to say on this match
The Women’s Championship match I did read, I wasn’t not going to read it fully as I don’t think women wrestling is up to much, anyway this match was actually very entertaining and the flow of the match was very good, Beth Phoenix dominating for most of the match kept on powerful and no messing with me look with her, before the match started I thought Mickie may have won this match but as the match gradually went on I knew this was not going to be the case, I then thought it was going to be Victoria getting the win and my thought were made clear when I was just waiting to read. 1.2.3 over Mickie but this was not to happen, Beth coming into the ring and tossing Victoria out the ring and then getting the pin was really great and good to read, maybe Beth retaining the title Is a good idea
William Regal and Edge promo was realistic I felt and a good way to make sure the match later tonight runs smoothly instead of interference ruining the damn match
Triple H interview was great and really helped build up this absolute amazing feud you are building, Triple H sentence at the end was brilliant, Since Step screwed you she has been screwing me ever since, brilliant and a real good promo
The Cruiserweight match was a real excellent match to read and I honestly mean that Nige, once again their really isn’t any faults on my part, you had the match length and everything brilliant, So onto the match, like I have said in the last match I was not going to read all of this but I decided to it, its cruiserweights for crying out loud, Anyway first person to get eliminated Matt Striker, do I agree, yes and no, I think Striker is better than the Cruiserweight division not because he has amazing talent just because I think he should be managing a big heel superstar, So him out was OK for me, I am going to work on the eliminations first, Jeter out next, I like him and thought he may get a little further in this match to be honest but I see he isn’t, Chavo pinning him was the right guy as Chavo I feel is the strongest man in this match, Next person eliminated Chavo, no! no! no!, how could you eliminate Chavo, he plays the cruiserweight champion role so good, you should have at least kept him in for a little longer, the fourth person eliminated is bad and really weakens Chavo in my opinion, anyway moving on the next person eliminated was Jamie Noble, the next superstar I expected to win after Chavo went out, I think Chavo and Noble should at least of been in the last three superstars left in the match, one thing I do like is it is really making one of my favourites not for this match but in actual wrestling Jimmy Wang Yang look every so good, eliminating to former and arguably best Cruiserweights of all time Chavo and Noble, is he going to win it I wonder?, I see not as Dykstra eliminates him next, well at least you let Jimmy eliminate a few people and really show himself as the talented guy he truly is, Dykstra against Sydal, you look like you are really pushing this guy to be a top star which is not a bad thing as he is amazing, Dykstra getting the win by cheating was a great way to end what I personally have to call MOTN so far. I had so many changes in my mind who would win at first I was thinking right Chavo or Sydal because I was thinking a push for him, then I remembered Noble so I was really confused, when I read Yang really dominating in the match I thought he was going to get the win, the three men I didn’t expect to win was Dykstra, Striker and Jeter and one of them did, this is a good thing though, a very good thing as it keeps me surprised!
Mr McMahon and Shane McMahon promo I felt was just another promo to add to the feud, I thought the promo was OK sometimes men drifted out of character but not to much, the bit I loved was when Mr McMahon left the room and Kennedy was their, Mr Kennedy Mr McMahon’s Son, it has to be, I would think this with anyone else but it is you Nige, you like surprises
This match had me intrigued just with the rules but no offence Nige, it really disappointed me, I don’t know why it just did, the match was entertaining for I suppose, Cody going out first was the right thing but then after that I felt the match got a little boring, I actually am not sure if I like Cody going out first as I would like to see him get a push, but then it just got worse for me Santino Marella getting eliminated, No why did you have to do this, Santino I thought had a chance of winning the title and him being eliminated before Carlito I felt was rather strange, Anyway moving on next out is Carlito and that was correct even though he should have been out before the Italian comedian, It was down to Elijah Burke, I would liked to have seen a little bit of arguments going on between Punk and Jeff Hardy and then Burke taking advantage of this, Now onto Elijah Burke getting pinned, I really could not see Hardy doing what he done, tag his partner in, its that bad or am I being honest, I just cant imagine him being like that, Jeff Hardy winning was alright, the end was rather good right enough, CM Punk turning heel, this could be excellent and I look forward to seeing what unfolds
Randy Orton and Batista promo was good, Orton being his cocky self and Batista telling him so, then The Miz and John Morrison, The Miz and John Morrison attacking Batista, The Miz….. And John Morrison attacking the Animal, well I don’t think so but anyway Randy helping his old pal Edge was good to see, RatedRKO were the best
Triple H v Mr McMahon was probably the best match I have read so far in this Forum, OK I loved the way you started the match Nige, Mr McMahon running away from Triple H was something I liked to see, him then sneaking into the ring and stomping on the game was also good and very realistic, Triple H dominated the match in the early stages and that is what had to happen, Mr McMahon slowly got into the match and you done this so realistically, this is exactly what you see in every McMahon match, he Is getting beat badly and then he hits with a punch to the gut and then hits with a clothesline looking completely tired, Mr McMahon started to dominate using all the dirty tricks in the books, choking the hell out of Triple H and then he snapped. LOL, I loved this, you cant have a match with McMahon without him completely losing the plot, Anyway moving on Triple H got back into the match, hitting with the pedigree but then saying he is not finished, this was great, The game leaves the ring and gets the sledgehammer, Now at first I was wanting Triple H to take him down with the sledgehammer and then get the win but when McMahon got the hammer, I was praying he would knock the lights out of Triple H, imagine you made McMahon win, this would have been great and an ultimate surprise, Anyway Triple H ended up getting the win what was fine with me anyway. The only thing that disappointed me was Shane McMahon wasn’t involved at all.
Shawn Michaels interview had a great ending even though it was just to build up the main event. Shawn Michaels sweet chin music to Josh Matthews was great
The World Heavyweight Championship Match was another great match, I didn’t think it was better than McMahon and Triple H but I still thought it was really good, before the match I was expecting Edge to pick up the victory but I am glad you have decided to keep that championship on Batista, Sorry I didn’t say a lot about this match, I just want to get on with the main event
There is no doubt in my mind that this was truly MOTN, I thought to myself nothing could beat the McMahon Triple H street fight but this certainly bet it and by far, OK even though Finlay is a good wrestler and always has been if we be truthful he was the weakest superstar in this match so for the first time Nige I agree with who you eliminated first, Undertaker eliminating him was also good to see, I would actually like to see a Finlay, Undertaker rivalry, OK the next person out is MVP, why! Why! Why! No only joking I was not happy with this at first but then when Matt Hardy got eliminated it did make it better as they two brawled up the ramp, Mr Kennedy eliminating Matt Hardy made him look strong in this match, Kennedy out next but what a way to go totally taking down Jericho with the steel chair, this was very good, him getting DQ was also good, Randy Orton taking full advantage was brilliant and got the 1.2.3 over Jericho. Next person eliminated was The Undertaker and it was Orton who done it, I love Randy Orton as a wrestler and I think he is really the best in the WWE, him eliminating The deadman made him look really strong which always has to be good, Now down to the two captains could it be any different way, Randy Orton getting the win after delivering the RKO was brilliant as well, Randys team picking up the win I love. Great match Nige to end a great show.
Overall: What a show Nige, What a show. I know I criticized a few little things but still this has got to be the best show I have read so far on this forum, Absolute brilliant and this stuck you out as a great booker. Congratulations
