DH6's Saturday Night's Main Event Feedback
~Can't believe I only got two in the predictions contest. What an outrage
Also, sorry for the shortness but I'm currently working on four reviews, as well as my SD!, Raw, SNME and WM, so I'm pretty busy.
Definitely shocked that things get started out with the Steel Cage. Good decision though, and it solidifies that this will be the match order tonight: Steel Cage, Women's Title, Jericho/Kennedy, World Title, WWE Title. I like how you're just doing the endings since it's Saturday Night's Main Event. It was good that you had pinfalls, but not a lot since it's a Steel Cage Match. This match was much bigger than the way it was hyped. I don't think it was built that great, but the great match made up for the poor build, tbh. You put a lot of detail into this match for the ending, which was excellent. Hardy escaping following the Twist of Fate was good, because it basically puts an end to the rivalry as it wasn't a close finish or anything. Good way to open up the show, tbh, and I think it got the fans into the event.
Lena's a great person to have interviewing, and I might have to use her in my thread, but not copying you of course
. I didn't read your last SD! unfortunately, so I didn't know that Shawn accidentally Super Kicked Batista. Good interview with Batista, and I expect him to win here tonight.
Stephanie now pregnant is very interesting, and could really mix some things up, tbh. I can see a miscarriage, but I guess I'm looking at this as a soap-opera angle now
. I don't think it will be 'the perfect family'. It would just be too dominating, and Vince or Triple H would have to turn from heel-face or face-heel.
Trish and Beth put on a great match together from what I read. Beth got back in control by pretty much dominating Trish. I'm not really a fan of Beth's monster gimmick, but having a monster in the Women's division is needed, tbh. Trish getting her foot on the ropes after the Driver kept the move's credibility in tact, as well as Beth's credibility. The match got even better.... BUT TRISH LOSES~! I saw this as a way to bring Trish back into the WWE, but I guess I was awfully mistaken. Looks like you've pulled one over on all of us Nige. I'll get my revenge
Pretty obvious that Edge would be present. It sounds as if Edge is going to cost Michaels the match, but there may be a twist and he could cost Batista the match. Who knows.. we'll have to wait and see unfortunately.
This angle has gotten crazy! Vince kidnaps Stephanie's and Hunter's daughter (or so it seems)! This is going to play a huge part in the WWE Championship match. I think Vince will interfere or something, but I know Aurora will also be involved. She might be at stake or something, who knows.
This match, just like the ones previous to it, was fabulous. This feud was given a lot of attention, and I'm glad it did after it delivered so well. I thought the Walls of Jericho was going to be it, but I was mistaken. There were a lot of near falls, maybe too many. The Mic Check would've put Jericho away, but since it didn't, that's solid notification that Kennedy's gonna job tonight
. Walls of Jericho > Codebreaker. At least Jericho has a finisher that can be done in a pinning attempt, which is why the Codebreaker should stay around. Jericho winning was upsetting to me, but Kennedy hitting the Mic Check afterwards keeps both men's credibility.
~I have a very strong feeling that your Royal Rumble, especially The Royal Rumble Match, is going to deliver. Looking forward to the event
These angles are great and all, but it gives Stephanie & Triple H far too much attention than what they need. They've been involved way too much already, and it's a little tiring for the fans to always have to see them following a match. However, good that you got Shane in the mix so that it's not always just Steph/Vince or Steph/Triple H or whatever. You're changing up the male
. But here comes Triple H, which sort of ruins that comment in a way. None the less, this segment was very enjoyable to read.
This match is my most favourite of the night, despite I know that Shawn will probably lose. The build is alright, but it's good enough for what you're trying to work with. I don't know why Batista keeps getting Mixed Reactions. I'm thinking it's because he's up against someone as over as Shawn, but maybe you can clarify that for me. This match wasn't quite exciting as the rest, but the match doesn't need to be overly exciting for it to be good. Figure Four Leg Lock! This was golden, especially since both men are friends with Flair. Referee is down!! This opens the door wide open for Edge to make an appearance. And then the Batista Bomb with the referee down! This match got a lot more exciting, and following the Batista Bomb with no referee, I marked because I knew Shawn would probably win. EDGE ACCIDENTALLY HITS BATISTA~!! YES NEW WORLD CHAMPION!!! MICHAELS WINS!!! Sorry, but I totally marked at Shawn winning the World Title. This match was great, and Edge accidentally screws Batista out of the title!!
The talking before hand sort of ruined the match, but not really so I can live with it. Talking before the Main Event is never good, so depending on the outcome, it might have been better to have the World Title Match go on last. The talking before was pretty good, and got the point across that was intended. This match turned out to be good, but I think it would have been better if Triple H seemed more distracted. It would be incredibly hard to write, but I think that you could've done it, because, well, it's you
. Triple H gained quite a bit of momentum, which was surprising, but it keeps him strong. Orton wins - BUT NO!! That was excellent booking/match writing. I mean, it's suspenseful (sp
) just to read it, but watching it would be a whole new story, tbh. THE PEDIGREE -- BUT VINCE COMES OUT! I knew he would come out, but I didn't exactly suspect this. JBL FROM BEHIND!!! This angle is obviously leading to WrestleMania, which is great. The finish was spectacular, as was the match.
Overall, the show was awesome. You had some great booking decisions, but my number one problem was the amount of attention given to the Vince/Triple H feud. Don't overpush this feud, because it will ruin it. Other than that, it was a really good show.
