Re: WWE: A Strong Response
Howdy Nige. Just back to again return a favor. I'm behind on reviews as it is, but I'll try to make it worth your time. Again, sorry for anything I miss. This is my first time reving your Smackdown!.
619s Feedback For Niges Friday Night Smackdown!
Qualifiers? Tournament? Nice.
While I would LOVE to see a Finlay/'Taker rivalry go long term, one match will have to do. The only problem I have with this is the Deadman. How often do you see 'Taker opening up a card with a match...? Doesn't normally happen. He just seemed out of place. Glad 'Taker keeps going, though.
I liked the touchy feely feel of this HBK/Flair promo, but I think it gave a little too much away. I would absolutley LOVE Michaels/Flair to close out Flair's career again, but this time for the World Heavyweight Championship? Thats ballin'.
Finlay/Harris rivalry? Alliance? Intersting here.
Haha, I like this, its different. Most bookers shit on Charlie Haas, but you're giving him a solid push here. Putting away cruserweights week after week, the Haas of Pain, and being accompanied by Masters is great. I just love it. Give Charlie a gimmick plz.
MVP + mike time = ratings.
No surprise Flair advances here, and I guess he does in sort of a symbolic way by beating Michaels' cousin. Figure Four ftw is very sweet.
I thought the Pits were Noble and Idol Stevens, but Kash is cool too. I guess you added him in at some point, but I love that you're pushing the tag division here. Giving the main contenders a very nice segment is most excellent. Kudo points for this
After the segments earlier with Finlay/Harris and MVP on the mike, its no surprise to see Porter go on. I guess now we'll see Harris and Finlay bud into something, and MVP/Flair in this tounament like thing would be sweet.
I loved the detail you put in this match. It was definatley a lot more than any other match on the card (though I haven't reached the main event yet). I loved the disappointment feel with Matt losing, and I love Benjamin/Hardy growing. Umaga advancing is good stuff.
Great SNME hype, man. Now I see that its not a tournament, but a 6-man affair. My bad, but great to see.
I think that 'Taker's qualifying match should've been the main event in all honesty, but this match was good for what it was. It advanced the storyline, but I guess it was sort of a filler main event.
FINAL THOUGHTS: GREAT WAY TO KEEP UP THE HYPE FOR SNME. I have never done a SNME, but I love the way you've hyped this thing up. I guess it sort of has a Wrestlemania feel to it in a way, and this Smackdown! was the final chance for you to do it, and it did its job, nothing really big, however. I guess its best that way, but great job again Nige.
OVERALL: 8/10. Keep it up, man.
