Re: WWE 2007: The Good Ol' Days
A: Very good description. Gives the readers a nice description about the past Rumble, and what to expect for this year
Us Title Match:
B+: Very nice opener. It seemed like Book would take the title right off of MVP. You almost made it like a mini squash, but it wasn't bad or anything. I think putting Book over in this match like you did will help Booking him in the future. The interference from Kennedy pretty much ended it, which means I'm expecting Booker/Ken or Book/Ken/MVP. I would loooove to see a title match between these three. Great opener!
Triple H promo did build a lil bit of suspence, like what would Vince do about it.
Tag Title Match:
B: I felt like this match was a bit short. Especially when Ted said that Priceless needed the win. That kinda told me that this match was gunna be big. Basically, a sold B because I thought it could've been longer, and not just brawling.
A+: Great match here. Very happy to see Flair wrestlin for the gold again. And, at that, against Big Show (c) and Taker! This movie definetley didn't lack in length like the tag title match. Between the teamwork between Taker and Big Show, to the countering other people's moves into their own, which I enjoyed. Flair seemed possesed at some points, but why not. He was against the odds. He wasn't in his prime, and he had to face Taker and Big Show with the added preasure of fighting for a title as well.
This match had some great brawling and all out fighting in this match. Excellent effort by Flair, Taker, and Big Show. The ending seemed to be the best part when all of the men knocked each other out. I'd like to see at least 2 of these guys go at it again.
A+: I love it when the old timers have the gold. Like Rock, Austin, Taker, and HBK. Inthis case--HBK. Especially when a cocky young heel faces a respectuful, aged, face that still has it in 'em. Great match. Michaels even showed a submission or two. And it lasted a good long time too! When HBK went for SCM, I thought it would be another short ending. But a nice reversal by Edge into a Russian Leg Sweep. Good way to keep the match at a neutral to make up for the submission by HBK earlier.
Also (I lol'ed @ this) you said "Tune up the Van" which I got a chuckle out of. The spear right after that screamed defeat at first to me......but then I read on. AND MICHAELS KICKED OUT! WOW.....HE's STILL GOT IT! Uggghhhh.....THE GAME!! SH**......I wanted a clea n finish. I want Trips v HBK for the title in the near future tho...
Royal Rumble Match:
A+: Now I'm not gunna give an overview of this match entrant by entrant, but I'll give a review nevertheless. Good job eliminating JBL first, I never really liked him. (And BTW, why is he IC champ in real life??!! IDK....) Anywho, Angle catching Mysterio I raised my eyebrows at. I know he's strong, and Mysterio is like 170 soakin' wet, but still. I was watching this closley after Swagger entered, because I have an idea for you. Since Swagger and Kurt have that "American" decent about them. You know, Olympic HGold Medalist, All American American. They'd make a great heel tag in my opinion. Besides that, Matt Morgan, eh?
Not exactly a piture perfect debut for Matt, being that he got eliminated by Batista like 0:16 into his debut. I don't know if you were trying to put Tista over, or just to show how great, or lack thereof, Matt Morgan is. When Rey got Bombed, I thought he would be gone next. But, Kingston tried to sneak on Tista, and he joined Matt Morgan in the Over-Pushed line. No offense to u however. But then, like I expected, Rey got eliminated.
#16 rolled around.......and Val Venis arrived. Ok..... BUT THEN HE ELIMINATES KNOX....WITH A FRIGGIN' TOWEL! Crazy sh** man, I know, I know but that just blew my f'n mind! You typed it out right! Val Venis's TOWELLL got that elimination! Not even the guy with the towel! That was f'n funny man! Entertainment!
Shad eliminated Val.....AND MORRISON! Pretty sweet! Number 22 rolled around......and it came down to a hardcore game of rock...paper...scisorrs! Cade and Murdoch down to the wire.....Murdoch throws down scissors!! Cade uses Rock! CADE WINS! CADE WINS!! YESSS! Ok...I had my fun. He didn't have much fun to do as he got rid of that "Italion Stalion" Santino Marella.
I know I'm skipping Kane, but #25 on was big. SCSA! The Texas Rattlesnake! He probably didn't get a rather large pop. He probably got the roof to pop off its hinges....if the apprpriate pop was given. He really kicked Kane's a$$! Stunner, and a chair shot!
John Cena -- Superman! Definatley a gimmick I would at least think about for Cena, considering every 9 year old boy in the world knows him, and marks for him if they know what mark means. Next is the legend killer, RKO. And to his delight...Bobby Lashley entered @ 28. If looks could kill, Randy Orton would be bitin' the dust.
Entrant 29: The GAME!! Yess.....wait....NO! Umaga.....monkey crap! McMahon v Trips.....it's worked before! Book it! I'm tellin ya! Entrant thirty....HOLLLY SHIZZNET! CHRIS F'N JERICHO! WOW......SWEEEEET A FACE VERSION OF CHRIS JERICHO. I WOULD'VE MARKED LIKE A LITTLE GIRL IF STYLES PISSED HIMSELF! SCSA then eliminated Matt Hardy later.
SCSA and Kane eliminattions by each other. This thing between the two will be great. Something @ WM maybe? Then, the big eliminations start. Cena was eliminated by Lashley. But for his trouble he gets put in the WoJ! Orton then gets involved, gets rid of Orotn. I love all of the storylines you have for the future in just this match. Wait......CODEBREAKER!!! LASHLEY IS ELIMINATED..........JERICHO WINS!! Y2J WINS!!! WOW!!! What a RUmble!! Well, that's my review! LOVED RR BTW!
