Re: WWE: A Strong Response
Sorry that I didn’t review Raw, been ill over the last week and a bit so had no motivation to go and review it tbh. But anyway here is a review for Smackdown.
Opening promo was a very good start to the show. Promo didn’t really pick up however until Shawn Michaels came down, and we had a confrontation between Edge and HBK which was very entertaining to read. Good to see Edge isn’t out of the title picture, as after what happened last week I thought he wouldn’t be in the picture. Big match announced for tonight, and I see the match ending as a draw so they both get title shots.
More mic time for Dykstra, seems as though your giving the kid a push which is good to see. Promo itself wasn’t anything special, but did it’s purpose of setting up the next match.
Dykstra v Chavo seemed like a pretty good match through the recap, little surprised at the ending however. As I thought Dykstra was going to get the clean victory, but instead weasels out and gets DQ’d. Must mean that your going to give Chavo a title shot in the future, as he would have been beaten otherwise.
Decent double promo here, started off weak with the Sydal promo, but got better when Estrada came in and argued with Regal about Umaga’s name lol.
Two Cruiserweight matches in a Row? Man you got a very good CW division on Smackdown. Good to see Noble get the victory, as he could be used a whole lot better in the CW division than Super Crazy.
Decent promo here, not too sure on what Burchill is like on the mic IRL, but he sounded ok here. Would of thought the rest of the UK Pack would be with him however.
Ugh not keen on you making Chavo look like Dykstra’s bitch here. But lol’d at Dykstra saying Bitch at the end of his bit lol.
Good tag team match here, and once again I expected The Worlds Greatest Tag Team to get a clean victory but we get another DQ. Not keen on having Two DQ endings in the first three matches. Nice aftermath with the UK Pack taking out Masters and WGTT, continuing the feud.
There seems to be at least one ass kissing promo on every Smackdown lol. But seriously was a pretty good promo, and gives me a feeling that HBK might take the win tonight.
Very interesting to see Thorn as a face in this thread, as I just cannot see it. No surprises to see Taker and Thorn take the victory, little surprised at the aftermath with Umaga attacking Thorn and then staring down The Undertaker. An Umaga/Taker feud would own, would make a good WM match.
Great promo here, you got MVP’s character and Hardy’s intensity off very well here. Am looking forward to their match at SNME.
Main event seemed to be a fantastic match, as you gave it a lot of time to progress. Was good to see that there was no interferences, and good to see Michaels get the victory as we get a Batista/HBK match down the line.
Overall was another great edition of Smackdown, the main storylines progressed very nicely, and look forward to Raw.
