hai. This'll be a review of the first show, because I'm behind. If I have time I'll edit a review of the second show in here, though I'll probably get to it tomorrow.
The opening to this show was beautiful. It really was. The whole fading into the show to see Heyman as well as Heyman's empassioned speech showed the emotion of the promotion. You made everything in the promotion seem huge, from the cruiserweights to the announcers which does everything the world of good. You need to play up your strengths and showcase them, and I felt you did this perfectly. Awesome way to really introduce your promotion to the world.
Really diggin' the MVP segment. Things like him calling his locker room the 'VIP locker room' really show his arrogance and plays up to his character. Adding little things like that mean a lot. Loving MVP going for the title, because he is simply pure awesomeness in a can. Also liking his little entourage of Gen Next and Elijah Burke (they all pwn, tbh). Hopefully you use them as more than just jobbers like I suspect you will. =/
Not sure if there should have been a segment here, since you already have one team waiting in the ring for the start of the match, especially since you had an ad break before this segment. I know it's just minor, but I'm finding it hard to pick out stuff. I'm grasping at straws here.
Nice little play on the past with you acknowledging the connection between Heyman and Douglas as well.
Kinda surprised Aries and Strong got the win here, especially over the experienced Team 3D. Seemed this was a way of establishing the stable, which I liked. Cheating to win is fine as it shows that they're all willing to cheat, establishing them as a pretty big heel stable. Good to see you actually giving Aries and Strong the time of day.
Awesome way to make Cage seem like a huge deal here. Makes him seem like a major, major part of your promotion and I heart it. Promo builds some suspense, I guess.
London seemed extremely generic here. Seems like you've got some plans for him, so plz make him more than just meh face #12. He needs a character to him. I hope you develop one for him.
Meh, don't like either of Abyss or Hoyt, so I don't really care about this result tooooo much. Would have to think that the big guy of your promotion should get a win on your first broadcast though, as he should be built up as big and tough, rather than being beaten to look weak in the eyes of the crowd.
Liked the Mitchell segment, mainly because Mitchell is awesomeness. He's the only thing that has ever made Abyss bearable, so I'd be happy to see them being paired up again. The re-pairing seems inevitable, so make it happen sooner rather than later, for the sake of Abyss being worthwhile. Liked Mitchell blaming everything on the mother, rather than him, btw.
This promo was the classic ZOMG WE HAS WON SO MANY TITLES WE IS EPIC YEAH US 3D thing. Perfect in terms of character I guess. Hopefully you just use 3D to put over the youngsters, because they really have nothing to gain.
Not too sure why you had Shelley wear the X belt up. It may have been to show off his arrogance, but I don't really see a point to that as I don't think it did anything, personally. Kinda disappointed to see Shelley lose to Mysterio, as he's far more epic, though I guess it's alright to build up his asshole/crybaby character.
Heyman gets bossed around, lol. Nice hype, again.
This segement went along very nicely. Liked the start with Kennedy, and I like how you've added something of your own to his promos as well. Mr Kennedy ... PERIOD was very, very good. Nice to see a fair bit of originality with this thread.
Cage was again on key, and he had some very nice interraction with Kennedy. Kennedy pretending to be happy to be in the presence of Cage only to SWERVE~! and be an arrogant asshole was epic. I'm honoured to be graced by MVP again, btw. Anyway, the whole beatdown set up the debut of Goldberg rather well. Can't say I'm too happy it's Goldberg, because I find him rather shit, but whatever.
First off, really happy to see you using your cw's well. Featuring them in the main event of your first show shows that they're going to be a big part of your fed which I heart. London had his epic effort, which is cool since I like the guy. Like the booking of his matches starting off short, before he became more and more worn, meaning it took him longer to put away Red. Hart coming in and winning then demanding Heyman strap on the belt means you seem to have an arrogant top heel for the cw division, which is cool. Teddy's natrually a peick, so it works lol.
Overall, a very good first show. Your booking seems extremely sound and you write fantastic promos. I'm sure you'll be a big part of the section here very soon.
