Alim's Raw Review
Sorry this one is a little short, I'm busy again x.x And sorry for the lateness too.
Excellent opening promo by Randy Orton. I expected either him or Triple H would open up the show. I liked the remarks you made about the local sports teams, that always generates a good amount of heat, which Orton usually doesn't get. Orton was in character throughout, but the promo was a little wordy, but that's fine man, because Orton is a wordy kind of guy. Hardy vs. Orton should be solid, and I hope Triple H vs. Orton will be good too.
Punk turning heel at SS was a real surprise, but I liked it because Punk is an amazing heel. Punk picking up the win was no surprise at all, but I was more interested in the promo after the match to see what the reason was for the heel turn. The reason was pretty good, and I think it's the best scenerio you could have played. I see some great matches in the future between the two.
Another strong promo here by Jericho. The comments he made about Kennedy were realistic and funny too, I especially liked the one about his mom lol. This feud could go to great heights if booked correctly, I know you'll do good.
This promo was pretty... weird to be honest. I don't find Layla entertaining at all and I hope you don't do some sort of love angle with Layla and Shane, but maybe this promo was just there for entertainment sake.
Carlito going over Rhodes, glad it happened. Good to see you're not jobbing out Carlito in this thread like in real life, a real under rated talent imo. I have a feeling I know who the masked man is, but I won't let it out right now.
Todd Grisham has been used a lot in the night already, I think it's time you try and get another backstage announcer. Nonetheless, Kennedy promo was strong and to the point. He seemed in character, but you didn't have him do his signature MISTAHHHHHHHH KENNEDYYYYY!.... KENNEDYYYYY!
Jericho getting the win, no surprise and seemed like a squash tbh, way to degrade Santino lol. I was shocked to see that Kennedy didn't try to interfere or even do an aftermatch beatdown, you would expect that, but it didn't happen.
Solid promo here by Burke and Dreamer. Seemed the usual dissing the old veterans by a new school wrestler. I only see this as like a one or two week mini feud though, but good to see both guys getting some airtime.
Saturday Night's Main Event is shaping up nicely dude. So far I can see HHH/Orton, Kennedy/Jericho, and Punk/Hardy on the card. Looking forward to it.
Six person tag match was pretty good, faces picking up the win was no shocker considering that The Hooligans won the titles last night. The aftermath with Victoria/Beth was very confusing, a blow to the head with the belt would have been enough, but her head hitting off a chair and then bleeding was kind of... confusing.
Interesting segment with Stephanie and Triple H. It was right for Steph to tell Triple H that she told Shane who his brother is last night, but I have to say either Steph or Shane will turn and tell Vince.
Somewhat of a clean win for Orton, but with Punk sitting right at ringside, you would be a fool to not expect that he wouldn't be doing anything to try and cost Jeff Hardy the match. The finish doesn't degrade Hardy imo, still keeps him as a strong champion.
Lashley returning, sounds awesome. I think he'll be returning at the Anniversery Show.
Very, very good promo to end the show. Both men looked strong, and wow, if Kennedy isn't the son, who is it? I could have sworn I thought Kennedy was the son all this time, but you're full of surprises so I should have known better. Kennedy still didn't get to do his signature KENNEDYYYYYYYY!
Anyways, Orton coming out was meh, but for now, HHH looks to be having the upperhand going into SNME.
Overall, a very good show, but some things were repetitive such as Todd Grisham's interviews and wrestlers coming down to the commentators table. Sorry for the short review this time too. Good luck!
