D-K-L's Raw Review
The opening promo was great again, really good way to start the show. It must be quite hard keeping this going at such a high standard but this was a really great idea to make it even more personal. You really took adavantage of the show being in Australia by having the McMahon's stay home and attack Reid, really good idea. Maybe the attack could've been a little worse but it did it's job.
Flair going home was expected, was surprised to see HHH and Batista sticking around as well though. So Flair is gone now, wouldn't rule out some problems now with Batista and Triple H.
Pretty good segment this, it's always good to see Santino and it was a good set up for the match later. Santino was quite funny as well. The match should be good, I expect Dykstra will be involved somehow though.
Decent opener and a good win for Carlito. A dirty win for Carlito with the low blow stopped Shad losing too much credibility, and it leaves Cryme Time possibly to come back for more.
Another very good segment with Cody Rhodes, you are doing well with Cody Rhodes and it's good to hear that their match is on at Backlash. I would like to see some real problems between them later tonight, although it's clear that the Backlash match will be just the start with Kofi frustrating Cody with a win, and I expect it will be a full blown feud from there.
Thank God this match didn't take place LOL. Really fantastic promo again because you were really clever in having Orton hit Bearer again when he and Kane can't touch each other, really good idea again. Orton was great in this promo and I would actually like him to take back the belt at Backlash just for a little twist, I doubt it, but it's possible. I thought Bischoff would be angrier about what Orton did though. Good match announcement, should be really interesting situation in the main event as both teams could have problems.
Jeff Hardy is coming back! Yay!
Decent diva's match and the problems with Hornswaggle and Finlay continue for Santino and Melina. Another good win for Kelly Kelly as well, thought you would give Natalya the win tbh but I think Kelly is getting a bit of a push.
Good interview with Orton as usual, not really sure if we needed to hear from him but it adds a little more build for the main event later. Orton going over what he's done over the past few weeks was good too.
Awesome segment again. I know this sort of thing has been done before but I am really enjoying how you are booking this feud, I think Cody is really good in this jelous role and he was great here once again. Loved the tension between the two here and I liked what he said about Kofi not having Kelly or the title after Backlash. This could go many ways as well which makes it even more exciting, Kelly could go with Kofi, she could turn heel with Cody or go with neither of them. But I don't see a title change.
DiBiase looked impressive once again here and I like him getting mic time every week. The open challenge was a good idea and Hardcore Holly was a good choice to out DiBiase over again. He is looking good on Raw, and I wonder how long it will be before he gets a proper feud.
Good little interview with Miz and Morrison, typically cocky from them and I liked his excuse for losing last week. The brawl was something I didn't expect but it was good to show the aggression in Kendrick and London. I'm not sure where you are going with this, as I can see London and Kendrick pulling together and retaining as well as a split.
Huge win for Santino even with the interference. Dykstra is causing a lot of problems for Cena and costing him this match just makes it more intense. The aftermath was good with the little comedy thing with Hornswaggle followed by the shillelagh shot. Good to see the match has been added too, should be good.
The main event was great, lots of detail and excitement in this and you showed the problems with Kane and Orton well. Batista knocking Triple H off the apron makes me think even more about problems between the two at Backlash, but you might be just teasing again.
Overall it was a very good show again, hardly anything I didn't like and I am really looking forward to Backlash now.
