Unforgiven card so afr looks really good man, especially the Shawn v Jericho match. It already looks to be a good ppv and thats only 3 matches so far. Also ahd a quick look over your Samckdown and it seemed like a realistic show, match wise and results wise.

8/25 Monday Night RAW Preview - A Machine Gone Missing

Last week on Monday Night Raw, the battle lines for the World Heavyweight Championship match at Unforgiven were drawn, and it will be CM Punk defending the Championship against three worthy competitors, John "Bradshaw" Layfield, Batista, and John Cena. All four of these men will be in action on Raw, but who will be able to gain momentum heading into Unforgiven?

Speaking of Unforgiven, last week on Raw, Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho, the most personal rivalry in the WWE, announced that they will be competing at Unforgiven in a "Texas Death Match". 'HBK' is not scheduled to make an appearance this week on Raw, but Chris Jericho is. What more does Jericho have to say to fuel this rivalry?

After the Main Event last week on Raw, Kane was given an ultimatum by General Manager Mike Adamle to either give up his burlap sack or leave Raw. Without saying a word, Kane walked away from the arena. Have we seen the end of 'The Big Red Machine'?

Last week, Mickie James announced that she would invoke her rematch clause for the Women's Championship this week on Raw. That means that Beth Phoenix will have her first title defense since winning the title at SummerSlam. But who will come out victorious?

All this and more on Monday Night RAW!

8/25 Monday Night RAW - Live from Wilkes-Barre, PA

The Wachovia Arena in Wilkes-Barre, PA is the site for this week's Monday Night Raw. After the theme song plays and the opening pyro goes off, commentators Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler welcome the viewers to the show.

Getting right to the action tonight, CM Punk's music plays as Raw prepares for its opening match. The World Heavyweight Champion, set to defend his title against three other men at Unforgiven, is in non-title action tonight. He finds out his opponent will be his rival of earlier in the year, the 2008 King of the Ring, William Regal. Regal has his typical menacing look on his face while making his way to the ring, looking to get one over on the World Heavyweight Champion like he has several times in the past. The early-going of this match is back and forth throughout, but Punk is able to gain control with his unique offense, featuring kicks, knees, punches, etc. After working Regal into the corner, Punk applies the "Rope Stretch Chicken Wing" for as long as possible until the referee forces him to remove the hold. Raw then heads to a commercial as Punk continues his offense on the 2008 King of the Ring.

*** COMMERCIAL BREAK ***

Based on the way Punk was controlling Regal before the commercial break, many would be surprised to find out that Regal was dominating Punk when Raw returned. While in commercial, Punk, while still in command, took his fight with Regal to outside the ring. While there, Punk tried to Irish whip Regal into the steel steps, which Regal was able to reverse. Back to the action now, where the former Raw General Manager is applying the "Regal Stretch" to the World Heavyweight Champion. Nowhere near the ropes, Punk has no choice but to fight out of the hold, which he eventually does. After fighting out of the hold, the two exchange punches in the center of the ring, which ends with a vicious kick to the head of Regal by Punk. Punk goes for a pin, but Regal barely kicks out. The brawl continues to go back and forth, until Punk hits Regal with a knee in the corner, followed by a bulldog. Punk then goes for the "Go To Sleep", but Regal catches Punks leg right as Punk's knee is about to connect to his face. However, Punk is able to quickly recover and hit an enzuigiri kick to the back of Regal's head. Dazed, Regal has no counter as Punk once again attempts his finishing maneuver, and Punk's knee drives right into the nose of Regal. Punk picks up the win and makes his way back up the ramp after a hard-earned victory.

After the match, we head backstage where Batista is preparing for action later on in the night. John Cena, Batista's opponent at SummerSlam, then walks in to the room. Cena tells Batista that whatever grudges they may have with each other have to be put aside for tonight, as the two will be each other's partner in a tag team match in the Main Event. Batista agrees with Cena, and shakes his hand as Raw heads to commercial. As Cena announced, tonight's Main Event will be himself and Batista in tag team action, and they will be facing John "Bradshaw" Layfield and Chris Jericho.

*** COMMERCIAL BREAK ***

The World Tag Team Champions make their way to the ring as Raw resumes, ready for a non-title match. Their opponents individually make their way to the ring, and they are none other than "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, who had been the Champions' rival ever since claiming the gold, and Raw's own color commentator, Jerry "The King" Lawler. Duggan and Lawler are able to put up a fight against DiBiase and Rhodes with the crowd behind them, but the World Tag Team Champions are able to pull out the victory after DiBiase hit his variation of "The Million Dollar Dream Legsweep" on Duggan. DiBiase stares down on a beaten Duggan, then leaves the ring with Rhodes with their belts slung around their shoulders.

The camera focuses to Mike Adamle's office, where Adamle is interrupted by the arrival of John "Bradshaw" Layfield. Layfield has come to Adamle to complain about John Cena being added to his match at SummerSlam, blaming Adamle for stacking the odds against him. Adamle tells Layfield that the odds are not stacked less in his favor than anyone else, and the Elimination Fatal Four-Way match makes sure that the best man wins. Layfield then complains more about tonight's Main Event, and he tells Adamle that if he knew what he was doing, he would focus on ratings, and him facing CM Punk for the World Heavyweight Championship tonight would bring in viewers at a record pace. Adamle tells Layfield that he'll have to wait until Unforgiven to get a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship. Layfield threatens to no-show the Main Event, but Adamle tells 'The Loudmouth Longhorn' that if he does not compete in tonight's Main Event, he will be removed from his match at Unforgiven. Raw heads to commercial as Layfield leaves Adamle's office.

*** COMMERCIAL BREAK ***

Mickie James' music hits, and the former Women's Champion makes her way to the ring looking to regain the belt she lost just 8 days ago at SummerSlam. Beth Phoenix's music follows, and the current Women's Champion makes her way to the ring, and her "boyfriend" Santino Marella follows her. The match begins, and the two Divas go back and forth. This bout is a classic example of speed versus power, but which will prevail? Mickie James is finally able to gain control using her speed to her advantage, and tries to finish Beth off early with a top-rope move. But Beth is able to quickly respond, and she pushes Mickie off the top turnbuckle down to the arena floor! The show takes a commercial break at the shot of Mickie James grabbing her ankle in pain.

*** COMMERCIAL BREAK ***

The match resumes with Beth Phoenix in complete control. Beth delivers shot after shot to the face of Mickie James, and after hitting a slingshot suplex, Beth takes the time to celebrate at the expense of Mickie James. But, Beth made the classic mistake of turning her back to her opponent, and Mickie James capitalizes and goes for the roll-up! Beth barely kicks out, but the near-fall has given new life to Mickie James, and she looks to capitalize. After having an Irish whip reversed, Mickie springs off the ropes and tries to hit Beth with the "Mickie-DT". Jumping up in the air, Beth is able to use her strength to prevent Mickie's momentum from taking her down to the floor, and Beth is able to reverse the move into a "Glam Slam"! Beth gets the win over Mickie, and holds the Women's Championship belt over her before making her way to the back with Santino.

We again go backstage, where Mike Adamle is in his office talking on the phone. He is interrupted by Chris Jericho, who has come to complain about being placed in the Main Event tonight. Jericho says he needs time to prepare for his Texas Death Match against Shawn Michaels at Unforgiven, and doesn't have time for meaningless tag matches such as the one Adamle booked for tonight. Adamle tells Jericho that he didn't plan on putting him in action this week, but with the absence of Kane, he needed a Main Event-caliber replacement. Adamle then tells Jericho that it's in his contract as a Raw superstar to compete when he tells him to, and if he doesn't he will be fined. Jericho leaves Adamle's office without saying another word, and Raw heads to another commercial.

*** COMMERCIAL BREAK ***

Raw returns, and commentators Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler preview the card for the Unforgiven pay-per-view which takes place in just 13 days. The only matches that have been announced thus far are the Elimination Fatal Four-Way for the World Heavyweight Championship, Triple H vs. Edge for the WWE Championship, and the grudge match of the year, Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Jericho in a Texas Death Match.

After the card is previewed, Kofi Kingston's music hits, and the former Intercontinental Champion makes his way down the ramp in street clothes, as he will join Cole and Lawler on commentary. Once Kofi takes his seat at the announce table, Santino Marella's music then hits, and the current Intercontinental Champion makes his way to the ring, making sure to make eye contact with Kofi Kingston once he gets there. D-Lo Brown's music then hits, and the recently re-acquired superstar makes his way to the ring, ready to challenge the Intercontinental Champion in non-title action. D-Lo actually gets the better of Santino early, with Santino seeming to be distracted by Kofi on commentary. Brown had his chance to finish Marella off, but missed a "Frog Splash", and from that point on, Marella remained in control. Marella gets the win after hitting his swinging neckbreaker, and immediately after the match, he gloats to Kofi Kingston, who during the match announced he would invoke his rematch clause in 13 days at Unforgiven. Raw heads to commercial.

*** COMMERCIAL BREAK ***

Following the commercial break, a "Smackdown Rebound" package plays. The package includes the opening promo where Edge was "given" a title shot, the beatdown of Jeff Hardy before the match and then Matt during the match by Shelton Benjamin and M.V.P., and the Main Event of The Undertaker versus The Great Khali and Triple H, and the events which happened afterwards.

After the package plays, Chris Jericho's countdown hits the Wachovia Arena, and Jericho makes his way to the ring while being nailed with boos from the crowd. Jericho, set to participate in tonight's Main Event tag team match, first comes out to talk about his match at Unforgiven. Jericho tells the crowd that Shawn Michaels was a fool for challenging Jericho to a Texas Death Match at Unforgiven, and he's going to regret his decision when he leaves Unforgiven blinded in both eyes. Jericho tells the crowd not to blame him for whatever may happen to 'HBK', because he was the one who wanted this kind of match. He tells the crowd that they're to blame, because they've been the ones placating Michaels' ego all this time. He says if they were smart, they would have told Shawn not to come back after SummerSlam, and his blood will be on their hands. Jericho drops his microphone as Raw heads to commercial with the Main Event on the other side of the break.

*** COMMERCIAL BREAK ***

John "Bradshaw" Layfield's music then hits, and Layfield's limosuine pulls up through the side of the ring. After his door is opened, Layfield makes his way to the ring, with his partner, Chris Jericho, already in the ring. Once in the ring, Layfield and Jericho exchange a few words. "I Walk Alone" blares throughout the arena, and Batista makes his way to the ring. Batista enters the ring, and both of his opponents drop down to the floor. "My Time Is Now" then hits, and John Cena, who will challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship at Unforgiven along with Batista and Layfield, makes his way to the ring. After entering the ring, Cena and Batista shake hands, showing they're on the same page in tonight's match. The contest begins with Cena and Layfield, who recently ended a rivalry between them at the Great American Bash pay-pew-view. Cena and Layfield take turns with the momentum early, and after a few minutes, Cena tags in his partner. Batista immediately goes on the offensive, forcing Layfield to tag in Jericho. Batista stays in control, and as Jericho tries to regroup against the ropes, Batista charges at him and clotheslines him down to the floor! Raw heads to commercial before the culmination of tonight's Main Event.

*** COMMERCIAL BREAK ***

Raw resumes with JBL and Batista as the two legal men. Layfield is in full control of Batista, and a split-screen comes up to show what happened during the commercial break. While outside the ring, Batista was on the attack of Jericho, but Layfield clotheslined 'The Animal' from behind. Back live now, where Jericho is now the legal man. Jericho is in full control of Batista, and after hitting an enzuigiri kick, Jericho tries for a "Lionsault" on Batista. Batista is able to get his knees up just in time to prevent the move, and now both men are down in the middle of the ring. Cena tries to help motivate Batista by getting the crowd going, and after a long struggle, Batista is finally able to make a tag, as does Jericho. Cena delivers shot after shot to Layfield, and then hits him with back-to-back shoulder blocks. Layfield then tries to clothesline Cena, but Cena ducks under, and hits Layfield with an inverted belly-to-back suplex. Everyone knows what's coming next, as Cena put his hand right in Layfield's face, signalling "you can't see me!". Cena springs off the ropes, and after theatrics, connects with a fist right to the face of Layfield. Cena then goes to knock Jericho off the ropes, but right as he turns around to Layfield, Layfield tries for a "Clothesline from Hell". Cena ducks under, dives to tag in Batista, and Batista nails Layfield with a spear! He goes for the pin, but only gets a two-count. 'The Animal' picks JBL up for a "Batista Bomb". Layfield is able to fight it off and drop back down, and again tries for the "Clothesline from Hell". Again he misses; this time he springs off the ropes and is nailed with a spinebuster! Batista again covers, and this time he gets the three-count! Cena then comes back into the ring, and the two victors have their hands raised. The two then shake hands as Raw fades to black.

---------------

Quick Results:

CM Punk df. William Regal

Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase df. “Hacksaw“ Jim Duggan and Jerry “The King“ Lawler

Beth Phoenix w/ Santino Marella df. Mickie James for the Women's Championship

Santino Marella df. D-Lo Brown

8/26 ECW Preview - Take Two

As announced last week by General Manager Theodore Long, ECW Champion Mark Henry will defend his title against the #1 Contender, Matt Hardy, tonight on ECW! In their first meeting at SummerSlam, 'The World's Strongest Man' was disqualified after his manager, Tony Atlas, broke up a pin attempt by Hardy. Will Matt Hardy be able to overcome the odds this time and claim the ECW Championship?

Last week on ECW, John Morrison and The Miz hosted a live edition of "The Dirt Sheet", which lead to a two-on-one beat down of ECW Original Tommy Dreamer. Dreamer has never backed down from a fight before, but with the numbers stacked against him, will Dreamer be able to get the better of the former WWE Tag Team Champions?

Last week, newcomer Evan Bourne was close to picking up a win over Chavo Guerrero, but his bodyguard Bam Neely interfered and the two proceeded to beat down Bourne. Finlay came to the ring to save Bourne, but he was then beaten down by Mike Knox. This week, Finlay and Bourne will get their chance at revenge, as they will tag with the undefeated Ricky Ortiz to take on Guerrero, Neely, and Knox in 6-man tag team action.

All this and more on ECW!

Raw Review


Punk v Regal: A Match to start off the show is a good idea as it isnt done much anymore. Not only a match but it was a good match. Punk was always goign to win but Regal put up a decent fight in it.


Cena and Batista on the same page for later on... but are they realy or will one of them turn their back on eachother.

Tag Match: Not much to comment on here, it was a realy short match but the right people won in the end. Bit weird King in a match though.

Adamle: This is a good abckstage conversation showing JBL moaning about different things, threatining to no show the main event is something he would do, but good intervention by the gm by saying if he didnt he would be removed from the title match.

Beth v Mickie: This was a suprisingly good match, diva matches normaly dont entertain me when they are in words but this had some good spots in it and was long with Beth getting the win to show she is stil the best.

Adamle: Jericho amde sense by saying he shouldnt be in the match but Adamle saying that he needed him i think made Jericho feel important so he left it at that. Match set up well with both men complaining about the match and Cena and Batista on same apge.

Santino v Brown: Not very appealing on the acrd but i think it was just used to egt Kingston to say he was going to use his rematch at Unforgiven.
Santino looked strong so this should be interesting with Kingston.


Main Event: It was a good main event but could have been beter. Not enough of Jericho and Sahwn Micheals not seen in the whole show i tought would have came down. Cena and Batista stayed on the same page.


Overall: It was a good recasp show. You need to get rid of where it says Raw preview on the top lol. Good work though it was a good read. 7/10

Panic! Review

- I was quite shocked but happy to see the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk open up the show by having a match with William Regal. Overall, I thought that it was such a great opening match that I would've personally enjoyed if it did happen. Glad to see Punk get the win despite no surprises, Regal did put up a good fight though and hopefully we'll see more hype for the World Title Match at Unforgiven. Good opening to Raw.

- It was good to have this little backstage segment with Cena/Batista. Will they be on the same page? Will one of the other turn their back on each other? Can they trust each other? Really good what happened here and I can't wait to read the main event.

- Good to see this match take place as all four men were involved with each other before SummerSlam as far as my memory takes me too. Also glad to see the WWE World Tag Team Champions, Simply Priceless win the match and hopefully stronger tag team opponents come soon to feud with them for the Titles.

- Liked everything that took place here between JBL/Adamle. Everything was very realistic between what the two said and stated. The main event for Raw should be sweet. Hopefully we see Chris Jericho speak backstage later.

- In different WWE BTBs, Women's matches really put me off a little as I can't stand them which is why I turned to the TNA Knockouts division, but this match seemed great and I can sense some sort of twist coming out between these two after Mickie just lost the match. Rematch maybe? We'll see.

- Nice to see Jericho complaining to Adamle backstage which was something that I wanted to read. I liked everything that was said between the two and yet again, very realistic and it makes me want to read the main event match even more. I would be disappointed if Shawn Michaels appeared in the main event though, since I feel that it should be saved.

- The usual match that we would all usually see on WWE Raw but I fairly enjoyed what went on and happy that the very funny WWE Intercontinental Champion, Santino Marella picked up the victory. I don't know if Santino against Kofi for the IC Title would work on PPV though after Kofi stated that he was having his rematch for the Title at Unforgiven. We'll see though, but I don't know if it will work or not.

- Very happy to see this promo take place and it gets the rating up from me . The Jericho promo was very strong and realistic and I now officially can't wait until the Unforgiven match takes place between Jericho/HBK in a Texas Death Match. Time for the main event and as I stated earlier, I can't wait to read .

- Nice main event that took place and definitely was the best match of the night. I'm very glad to read that Shawn Michaels never appeared during the match as it should be saved and let Jericho take control of the feud...for now . Thought that Batista or Cena would've come to blows but that was OK to see that not happen although it would've been good to see despite personally enjoying the handshake between the two to end Raw.

Notes - It was a very good read especially since this is the first time I've reviewed a show of your BTB. I liked some of the stuff that happened especially the Chris Jericho promo, the main event, the opening match, the Women's Title match, and the backstage segments. Some of the things that happened could've been improved on though, as I would've liked to seen more of Punk on the show since he is the World Heavyweight Champion. But overall, I did enjoy the show more than I had expected too and I will be checking this out more often, especially since Unforgiven is nearing. Good show ...rating time ...

Total Rating - 7.5/10

8/26 ECW - Live from Wilkes-Barre, PA

As was the case for last night's Monday Night Raw, the Wachovia Arena in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania is the site for tonight's episode of Extreme Championship Wrestling. The opening theme plays, followed by a large pyro, as the crowd goes crazy in anticipation for tonight's episode of ECW.

Right to the action, Chavo Guerrero's music hits, and the former ECW Champion and his bodyguard Bam Neely make their way to the ring. The cheers that were heard in the crowd have turned to boos, and they continue once Mike Knox's music hits, and Knox makes his way to the ring. The crowd is uplifted, however, as Finlay's music hits, and he and his son Hornswoggle make their way to the ring, handing out blow-up hammers to kids in the crowd. Ricky Ortiz's music plays next, and the undefeated newcomer makes his way to the ring swinging his "rally towel". Following him is Evan Bourne, another newcomer, who has quickly gotten on the good side of the ECW crowd with his high-flying antics. Bourne and Chavo start the match, with Bourne looking for revenge on Chavo and Bam after the beat down they gave him last week. Evan gets the better of Chavo early, and tags in his partner Finlay to inflict further damage to Chavo. However, the heels in the match start to distract the referee and take cheap shots, and they are able to isolate Finlay to their side of the ring. ECW heads to commercial as Finlay struggles to make a tag.

*** COMMERCIAL BREAK ***

Back to the action, and Chavo, Bam, and Knox are still in control of the match and Finlay. Knox, who has been involved in a rivalry with Finlay over the past couple weeks, goes to work on 'The Fighting Irishmen' with Ortiz and Bourne trying to rally Finlay to make a tag. Finlay is eventually able to break free, and comes close to making a tag, but Knox is able to pull him back to his team's side of the ring. After struggling more, Finlay is finally able to tag in Ortiz, who comes into the match for the first time. Ortiz gets the better of Knox, but Knox is able to roll out of the way of Ortiz's finishing splash, "The Big O". Both men make tags, and Evan Bourne and Bam Neely come into the match. The two go back and forth, and Neely tries to clothesline Bourne but misses and hits the referee! All hell breaks lose in the ring, but Finlay is able to come in and deliver finishing blows to all three men with his shillelagh. Finlay then revives the referee, and almost simultaneously, Evan Bourne hits "The Shooting Star Press" to pick up the win for his team. The three victors celebrate in the ring, while Chavo, Bam, and Knox make their way up the entrance ramp, holding their chests after the blows they took from Finlay's shillelagh.

ECW then heads backstage, where John Morrison and The Miz are seen chatting backstage. Tiffany, ECW General Manager Theodore Long's personal assistant, then walks up to the former WWE Tag Tag Team Champions and tells them that Long wants to see them in his office immediately. The two look confused, and head to Long's office as ECW heads to commercial.

*** COMMERCIAL BREAK ***

ECW returns from commercial break, and a "Raw Rebound" package plays. The video package highlights last night's Main Event contest of John Cena and Batista versus Chris Jericho and John "Bradshaw" Layfield, and the events that happened before the match even began. Cena and Batista are shown in the locker room, and both Jericho and Layfield are shown threatening to no-show the match. Highlights of the match are then shown, with Batista and Cena looking strong in their victory.

The Miz and John Morrison are now in Long's office, wondering what they could have been called for. Long asks the two why they did what they did to Tommy Dreamer last week, stating what they did was cruel and uncalled for. The Miz tells Long that neither he nor Morrison has to tell him anything. Long threatens to put the two in a match tonight, but says he can't with the ECW Championship match coming up. Long tells the duo that if he sees another brutal beat down on Tommy Dreamer similar to last week's, he'll have to take action.

"Live for the Moment" then blares through the loudspeakers, and the #1 Contender for the ECW Championship makes his way to the ring to an enormous pop from the crowd. Fans throughout the arena are holding up Hardy's "V1" hand gesture, as Hardy makes his way to the ring, ready for his second chance at the ECW Championship. ECW heads to commercial.

*** COMMERCIAL BREAK ***

ECW returns as Matt Hardy stands in the ring, looking confident. "Somebody's Gonna Get It" then plays, and the ECW Champion, Mark Henry, makes his way to the ring with his manager, Tony Atlas. Tony Chimel does the pre-match introductions, and the highly anticipated match finally gets underway. Matt takes control of the match early, not letting Henry catch his breath as Matt goes on a quick offensive. Matt looks like he is going to win almost as quickly as he did at SummerSlam, but he loses control after trying for a "Twist of Fate", only to be reversed to the ropes and then be on the receiving end of a monstrous clothesline. From that point forward, Mark began to dominate Matt with his size and power advantage. After hitting Matt with a back breaker, Mark used his weight to his advantage, and walked right on top of Matt, taking the wind right out of his lungs. ECW heads to commercial as Mark is in complete control of the match.

*** COMMERCIAL BREAK ***

ECW comes back from commercial, and Mark Henry is still in control of his ECW Championship match against Matt Hardy. Henry applies a bear-hug on Hardy, but Hardy is able to escape after enduring grueling pain. Mark then stomps on Matt, and then nails him with a big running splash. All appeared lost for Hardy, and all the referee had to do was count three... but Hardy kicks out! There's new life in the #1 Contender! Hardy then gets to his feet, and gives Henry one punch, followed by another, then another, but Henry is done playing around; he kicks Hardy in the gut, and sets him up for "The World's Strongest Slam". He lifts Hardy high in the air, showing why he is "The World's Strongest Man", but Hardy is able to reverse the move into a "Side Effect"! Hardy covers but can only draw a two count. Hardy, feeling he may be able to steal a victory and the championship here, waits for Henry to get up, holding up "V1" on his right hand. Henry gets up, and Hardy kicks him in the gut, trying for a "Twist of Fate". Henry pushes Hardy off, and then kicks him in the gut, trying for another "World's Strongest Slam". Hardy is able to avoid this one too, and again tries for a "Twist of Fate", and he connects! Hardy covers, but Tony Atlas breaks up the pin! The referee calls for the bell as Atlas has once again cheated Hardy out of the ECW Championship. Chants of "You Suck" can be heard from almost everyone throughout the Wachovia Arena, as Henry and Atlas make their way up the entrance ramp with Henry's ECW Championship still in his possession. ECW fades out as Hardy is shown in the ring, infuriated by the actions of Mark Henry's manager, Tony Atlas.

---------------

Quick Results:

Evan Bourne, Ricky Ortiz, and Finlay w/ Hornswoggle df. Chavo Guerrero, Bam Neely, and Mike Knox

Matt Hardy df. Mark Henry w/ Tony Atlas by disqualification (Henry retains the ECW Championship)

Very nice to start to the night with Punk vs. Regal, which would be a big time match. Really enjoyed it, maybe a little too tough of a challenge, as you want Punk to look good, but a hard fought match can only do wonders for him. Really liked this match, superb start to the show.

Big time main event for tonight. A little weird that Cena and Batista just put their differences aside, but I see them re opening their wounds tonight, and cannot see them co-existing. Although their going to have to to beat Y2J and JBL.

I'm all for seeing DiBiase and Rhodes on the show as they are your tag team champs, but Hacksaw Jim Duggan and the King as opponents, just doesn't do it for me. Their credibility has gone down over the years, and it's a kind of weak victory for the champs. Nice little match, served it's purpose though, and put the champs over a veteran tag team.

Great of Adamle to tell JBL that if he no shows, he's out of the match at Unforgiven. Punk vs. JBL would be nice though, maybe see that down the line. The 4 Way at Unforgiven is gonna be awesome, and a very in character promo here of JBL wanting the title shot and then threating to walk out.

No surprise here that Beth retained over Mickie, as she just started her reign. Gonna be interesting to see where you go with Phoenix because in other threads, she completely dominates. Who her credible contender could be will be enticing.

Wow, this has to be a the most un popular main event in a long time on RAW. No one wants to compete in it. The Texas Death Match is going to be nothing short of brutal. Interesting to see Y2J as Kane's replacement, maybe Kane shows up, and ruins the entire Main Event? That's my prediction.

Marella picking up the win over D-LO! Nice to see him back, hope it's more than a one time deal. Kofi/Marella is gonna be a nice little contest for Unforgiven, with an already loaded main event portion of the show.

Real intense promo from Jericho right there, holding the fans accountable for what he's gonna do to Michaels. Like I have mentioned, that match is going to be brutal, really hope you can make a great match out of it, as it has all the potential in the world. Main Event up next!

Decent Main Event a few weeks before Unforgiven. Interesting to see Batista win with the Spinebuster, nice to see him establish another finisher. Surprised that Jericho wasn't the one to take the fall, as he has nothing to do with the rivalry, but Jericho still stays hot going into the brutal match. Spells trouble for JBL if Cena and Batista are on the same page come Unforgiven.

Overall, I liked it. Love the big time matches for Unforgiven. Hopefully you don't go overboard, and you keep it realistic in terms of matches. Looking forward to the Texas Death Match more than anything, maybe have that as the Main Event?
