Re: WWE: A Strong Response
Hey Nige, I haven't got time to write a full review so I'll just give you some feedback for Smackdown this week...
-Although you wanted Edge's return to be a surprise, and you wanted to get him back on television quickly, I feel it was the wrong decision and you should've built up his return to SmackDown! in a much bigger way like a Main Event star deserves. The ending of last week's show was so great that you should have continued that at least for a few more weeks.
-So did Striker and BDV become Tag Team Champions, and then lose them to McIntyre and Taylor? I think that's what happened, and I think it was OK, but unnecessary. Striker and BDV could've got disqualified with McIntyre and Taylor winning the belts from Matt & MVP. Still, I liked how WGTT appeared to become new WWE Tag Team Champions in the end, and it looks like MVP is trying to form a stable. Nice!
-You called it "the biggest match in the history of Smackdown" - great. Batista vs. Undertaker - great. Two of the top Smackdown stars battling it out with Edge lurking nearby - great.
Umaga coming out, destroying both men and making them look incredibly weak - not great at all.
I can see you wanted Umaga to look strong, but in the process you didn't protect Batista or Undertaker which made them look so weak after such a huge Main Event. Also, Umaga gave Taker a Samoan Drop...then where did Taker go!?!? He seemed to disappear from your script! Anyway, Batista vs. Umaga should be good and I can see Batista somehow overcoming the odds and beating Umaga.
Overall Nige it was a decent show, but I know you can do better. I think you need to read over your show after you've written it and evaluate your decisions, and see if they're the right ones.
