Nice video package, reminding me of just what happened at Full Throttle, I really needed that, and now I look forward to what should be a good show, coming off the PPV. I expect new feuds to begin, old feuds to continue, and a rise in the overall quality of this show compared to the PPV.
Goldberg as this explosive bully type is awesome, so dragging Burke by the hair is a good option. Goldberg was a decent enough on the mic, all intense and that, although Iíve already spotted a few typos, and I really hope that is not setting a trend for the rest of the show. One thing I didnít like about the promo, and it came during a good line was this, ďI like you Paul, and I know that the last thing that you want on your show, especially one of the magnitude of this, is a champion in intensive care.Ē
Goldberg is pissed off; heís not going to say I like you Paul. Itís totally contradicting his character, and itís something I felt totally ruined the mood. The intensive care bit was spot on, top notch line, although once again a pissed off Goldberg, actually even a civil Goldberg, is not going to use the word magnitude. It just seems way out of character, and sometimes you have to remember that it is the wrestler talking, and not you. Besides these two issues, Bill was okay though.
ďHe hurries himself down into the ring, receiving a microphone, looking at MVP before then setting his sight on ĎBerg.Ē
Okay, first query, when the hell did MVP come out? I havenít heard anything about him yet, and this just seems like a clumsy, lazy mistake. If this is the case, you must proof read. Also, with Goldberg so angry, do you really think that Heyman would just walk straight into the ring? Iím pretty sure heíd wait at the entrance ramp. Sorry, but little things like this count, imo. The rest of Heyman was pretty good, however I donít understand why when Heyman said next week, Goldberg didnít get mad again. He doesnít seem like the patient type to me.
Christian Cage? Iím not to sure how he fits into the situation, but Iím pretty sure he wants the exact same thing as Goldberg, just a different title. Either way, I think this could have been kept for later in the show, but letís see how you go with it. Christian was pretty good, showing a nice mix of seriousness and comedy, which is pretty much what his character would be like in this situation.
ďWell I guess Iím the fourth and final piece to the puzzle arenít I. The Ďcrown Jewellí of the WAPW roster.Ē
Awesome line, great way to kick off the MVP promo, this line just exuded arrogance, and thatís exactly what his character should be like. From here, I felt as if the cockiness was a little forced, but I guess it was still decent enough. The ladies coming out was a nice touch, looks like MVP made a call to an escort service.
ďThe fans, who understand English, boo intently.Ē
, classic, imo. A nice main event for the PPV has been announced, although I would have preferred for the tag match to happen on a weekly show. Although, I guess this is a way for one of the feuds to continue, as the man who doesnít get pinned is still going to want a shot. Decent start to the show, although bits and pieces of the promo could have been better, it looks as if everything is set for the next month now, my only problem is perhaps you made the match announcement a bit early.
Before I start reading the opening contest, Iíd just like to add that I love the fact that Doane has dumped Roberts, I can really see him going far now. Nice win for Albright, thanks to a Roberts incidental distraction? Either way, good start to the in ring action, and Iím interested to see just whether Roberts continues to pursue Doane, and just what happens. It looks like an explosive situation in the making. Another thing Iím curious about is I wonder exactly what is going to happen to Albright. He has got an impressive win, and I truly believe there should be gold in his future.
ďMistico vs Alex Shelley!Ē
Canít wait to read it, to be honest.
Nice argument between Heyman and MVP, absolutely nothing wrong with the way the thing was written, and from this it looks like youíre trying to build some conflict between MVP and Burke. I loved Burkeís reply to MVP, and itíll be interesting to see just where this heads, but it seems as if youíre trying to stack the odds against MVP, and I get the feeling he is going to have a JBL type championship reign.
Gen Ex in the houseÖ Austin Aries with a typical victory speech, nothing overly great, although nothing bad, but Iím definitely looking forward to hearing from Eddie Kingston more. AndÖHereÖWeÖGo.
ďNow Team 3D.Ē
Is this really the way he would speak to his family? You should have left this bit out, just didnít feel right at the start. Besides this, Kingston was pretty spot on, and I actually enjoyed the way his character seemed to be going.
Although, that ended when he got attacked pretty quickly, but this is all about Gen Ex, and theyíre definitely going somewhere in this thread. This put over their conniving side, and just what they will do to win the tag team championships. Thought it was awesome, and twist with Team 3D taking out Kingston was great to, it shows that the most important things to all the teams are tag titles, and could add a lot of depth to things a little later on.
Jay and Mark Briscoe did not need to be mentioned here, donít try and move some things to fast.
Just by looking at this video package I can see big things in store for Brian Danielson, and why not? Is it not Bryan Danielson though? Iím not to sure myself now.
Anyway, check the spelling, and then have him own in this thread.
James Mitchell laying down an open challenge for Abyss, with a pretty cool speech to go with it. I call good work on this; it was a very fun read.
Jamie Noble accepting the challenge is definitely something I didnít expect, although it does excite me greatly. A push for this man would be off the hook, but unfortunately, I can only see a loss in his future tonight.
Abyss gets the big win, and Iím disappointed Noble, who is a champion in your thread, only went under five minutes with the big man.
This brawl after the match was written really well, Power. Seriously, you should pat yourself on the back for this one. You had Abyss continue to remain like a monster, and dominate physically, however the resilience you gave Noble showed me that he does indeed have a future in this thread, and thatís something I really am happy to see. ďAbyss, I ainít done with him, let me out, I ainít done.Ē
This line personifies the whole ĎPitbullí character, and an Abyss/Noble feud would be interesting, but I couldnít help but feel itíd be a little one sided, so hopefully itís just a little thing.
Hmm, New Brood? If so, youíve got some work to do, as teams with the word new in it never really work.
Noble was awake, so it wonít make sense, if he isnít back next week, so hopefully he is back with a vengeance for your next show.
Sugar Lances speech bored me, it seemed to have no use what so ever, and this is exactly the opposite to what a created fed should be heading towards.
Chris Hero as this Azrael character? Weird, but Iím willing to give it a chance. I love these type of gimmicks, and this promo was definitely my favorite of the night so far. ďAt the mere clicking of a finger I can confront the higher power and take whatever it is that we please.Ē
This mention of the higher power makes me think that Azrael is not the real leader, hopefully this is the case and this Ďhigher powerí becomes more and more of a mystery in the coming months. Itís a shame James Mitchell is busy, I could see him leading these guys to success perfectly, but for now, Hero will do, and Iím definitely looking forward to what these guys do in the future of this thread. I say the future because Iím pretty sure the next three weeks are going to be pretty standard with each one of Azraelís minions picking up a victory to prove themselves.
Nice win here by The UK, they were the only option, as I really donít like the team of Douglas and Stevens all that much. Looks like another team want a crack at the tag division, and is it weird that I find your tag division to be the most exciting of your whole thread?
Ugh, I didnít like the way Burke had changed his tune from earlier in the program. Earlier in the show, things were looking exciting for MVP, now they are looking dull, and it looks as if it could just be a normal two on two feud. ďIím no veteran, and Iím no WAPW World Champ, but aside from MVP Ė Iím the best thing going today.Ē
With this line being said right here, can you explain to me just why they were arguing earlier in the show? I really think youíve dropped the ball with this one, and I feel as if your whole main event scene just dropped a level in excitement.
Nice little family reunion, and this further emphasized my point that Team 3D will do anything for the gold. Putting their family before gold, and letting Kingston know they would do it again if he got in their way just shows me that there definitely could be a heel turn for 3D in the future. They donít care about anything but gold, theyíre greedy. For now though, they are the face team, and as much a is think theyíre stale as faces, they have a good role in this thread at this point in time. Gen EX attack was well done, and I think we may have a six man tag in the future.
Rey Mysterio makes an appearance for no reason at all other then the fact that they are in Mexico, right?
Anyway, probably would have been good if you could have translated what he said under the Spanish text.
Awesome, main event by the sounds of it. Probably could have been written out a little better, but I got the picture that it was an epic match anyway so it didnít really matter. Big win for Mistico in his home town as well.
Good for Rey Rey to after the match get a bit over on his rival, Shelley. This just adds some fuel to the fire, and makes me look forward to what else will happen between these guys in the coming weeks.
Overall, the show was better then decent but not great. Good is probably the world Iím looking for. Iím loving the look of your tag division, while the rest can use a little bit of work. Shelley/Rey is good, Doane is looking promising as hell, and I will have to wait and see what happens with this Azrael thing. Your main event scene I believe needs some work, and to ignore it as much as you did through this show (no main eventers had a match is not a good way to start, although you still have plenty of time to fix things. This was definitely a step up in quality from the PPV you produced, and besides the things Iíve mentioned, there are also a few clumsy mistakes that Iíve mentioned throughout that shouldnít be around. Youíre doing okay anyway, keep it up.
