This has taken you far too long to get up for my liking. Hereís to hoping from now you become more consistent, but then again, I canít really talk about consistency.
Not many people, except for guys like Wolfy and Legend are able to make the commentary of a show rather interesting, although I must say, you passed with flying colours here. Whilst JR and Tazz were decent enough, JBL was gold.
The opening match up was a pretty good one, with two guys who can go at it and Tommy Dreamer. Nothing else to really say, it was a decent enough match, and a good win for Regal, who Iím hoping has a bright future in this thread.
Umaga going to SD is a pretty big move. I like it though, as Umaga hadnít been doing that well on Raw as of late. I doubt maga would come out smiling though, thatís so out of character that itís not even funny.
To be perfectly honest, I felt as if Cenaís promo was very lacklustre. During the beginning, there was nothing to show that it was Cena, it was almost as if it was just some random guy talking. Then, the interview just ended so suddenly, with no big hard sell, or go home line, it almost seemed as if Cena was talking about what he was having for breakfast. I didnít like it at all.
Another decent enough pairing which is really to be expected, as the good matches always come around when all brands are together. I liked how you gave Flair the win, yet kept Kane strong, even if Kane is so past his prime.
Kane going to Raw is not something I like, as Raw had just gotten rid of a monster in Umaga. Not only that, but Umaga overshadows by a mile.
I donít know what the point of having a Backlash recap in the middle of the show is, when you already had one at the beginning?
A good win for Matt Hardy over Snitsky, though I must say, the matches havenít really been as strong as I expected for a draft show.
Chris Masters to Smackdown? This could be a good move, as the guys got talent and deserves a push on the less crowded SD.
Iím not going to sugar coat this at all. The fact that Jeff Hardy is number one contender is bad enough, if he becomes World Champion Iíll probably never read again.
The segment between the three GMís was a rather interesting one, definitely the best promo of the night so far, since there has only been two. Anyway, a triple threat match for JD should be a good read. This free agent better be Brock Lesnar to.
CM Punk is one of the few guys who can pull a decent match out of Nitro, so this is definitely a match I would have been interested in seeing. Punk had to get the victory here, as ECW needed to finally get the draft pick.
Honestly, Iím a little disappointed in Finlay going to ECW. He can kick ass with the best of them, but he is a mid carder at best, and I think ECW would benefit with a huge name coming over.
The WGTT interview was surprisingly not that bad, despite both guys sucking on the mic, yet both guys seemed to repeat themselves, and stutter a lot which just got annoying as it went on. As for Benjiís little stipulation regarding their title run, I think itís a bit stupid, tbh, unless of course youíre going to have them remain champions for a year. Breaking up just because Benji said this, would really be ridiculous. Be careful with what you do here, man.
The fact that this tag match got less time than Hardy/Snitsky and Flair/Kane is a joke. SHOWCASE your talent on big shows such as this draft show. Nothing much else to say, except itís a good win for the WGTT. Oh, Iíd love to see a fully fledged feud between these two teams to, even if they are on separate brands.
Chris Benoit to Raw? Thatís definitely a big draft pick.
Titles not allowed to switch brands? When did this rule come into play? Sounds like some sort of bull youíve just made up because you didnít know what else to do. Seriously, I donít like it, you should have had him lose the title on this show in a match, not just get it taken like this.
A pretty good segment with The Coach and Orton, although I donít really like Coach as the face GM. Simply doesnít suit him at all. Iíd love to see Orton fuck up Hardy, and get the title shot.
A big win for Carlito. Iím loving the momentum his receiving.
Elijah Burke coming to Raw? Awesome. I want to see the guy get pushed. With that being said, ECW is really losing big time with this draft.
Sabu and Daivari on a draft show? Shows how good the roster depth of this time period is.
Mr. Kennedy to ECW! Thank god for this. Seriously, this was needed badly, as ECW were really losing out, but now theyíve got one of the best guys in this whole thread on their show. A good choice here, PP.
Batista and ĎTaker confrontation was good enough. I was glad you kept ĎTaker silent, because so many people mess up when trying to write him.
A big, big match here, with the two ĎMania main events going against each other. These are more of the type of matches I expected, so yeah, Iím glad we got a good one eventually. A good win for Michaels and Cena, keeping them strong, whilst Taker/Batista tension will probably continue.
The Battle Royal seemed good enough, and what a big win for Umaga. However, what the fuck was Orton doing? I guess this was his way of getting back at The Coach, so I canít wait to see what happens next week.
Marcus Cor Von is a fairly big draft pick but SHAWN MICHAELS was huge. Awesome ending to the show with a big draft pick, thatíll rock the foundations of the entire company.
Iíve gotten into the habit of not summarising everything, and getting into my point with reviews, so I hope it seems efficient. Anyway, honestly, this could probably past as a normal show, but for a two hour draft show, I expected something better. I donít know why, but I expected more quality matches, and we could have had a few more promos, I mean I think we had like three or four for the whole bloody three hour show. Definitely some things to work on, but with the draft now behind you, I expect you to really get into your groove.
