Okay, well a good idea to start off starting with Christian. Definitely the right move, considering not only is he the man who retained his title two nights ago, but he is also by far and away the best promo guy you've got on your show. The first few lines were a good idea, though they weren't executed exactly right, imo. "Your" and "my" were interchangeable between the two sentences when they really shouldn't have been. Things like that ignore me, and while it's small, lines like that need to be perfect for full effect. I though Christian maybe played it up to the fans a little too much, though the mocking of Swagger was alright. Bringing up the 'friendship' of Christian and Dreamer seems maybe a bit too much like irl (especially considering they hadn't been made out as friends yet on ECW), though since they're both faces I guess you have to at least have them seem to have mutual respect. Christian seemed to be cut off awfully early by Swagger, as you may have been able to go a little further with Christian before he got cut off, though it's nothing big. Swagger again was like irl, but that's alright since it utilises the events that occurred up to this show. Not really happy that you had Christian lay Swagger out so early since it ended this promo prematurely (both men could have had a lot more to say), and the ending seemed a bit hard to imagine (I can't see it being that easy to get Swagger in position without him recovering). The segment for what it was, was pretty good, however, I think you could have done a fair bit more with it. You're just tapping into the potential.
I'm not too big on the first paragraph describing why the match is taking place. I'd rather you use the commentators for that, because well, that's what they're there to do. The first thing I notice in this match is a lack of tags, especially on the heel side when the number one rule of psychology in a tag match is that the heels constantly tag one another in and out to keep fresh. Why would Kidd stay in so long before tagging Smith in? It goes against that psychology. The fact that Smith gets countered as soon as he comes in makes him look kinda weak, imo. The match was fine up until the ending, which seemed very sloppy. Finlay didn't even get touched by Kidd, yet he just left him and allowed him to grab Smith so that Kidd could drag Smith over to the corner to make the tag after knocking Bourne off the apron? Doesn't make much sense, because Finlay really wouldn't be that stupid. The other thing that bothered me was a suplex being the go home move, because really, it isn't strong enough. Kidd has plenty of flashy moves in his arsenal, so why a suplex? Very bland and weak looking. Besides the finish and lack of Smith, the match was pretty nice. Would serve well as a fun opener, especially with two over faces involved.
Ergh, bickering between Matthews and Striker? Not needed. Striker is great as his own commentator, so you don't need to make him like Jerry Lawler to Matthews' JR. Not every announce team has to have a face and heel fighting. I actually often find ECW refreshing because we don't have that.
The Dreamer promo was pretty damn nicely put together. Didn't like him saying he wasn't as good as Christian and Swagger and that he wasn't a 'draw' (that's too smarky for my liking), because it really undersells him as a contender, though the story behind the promo was pretty damn nice.
Really would have preferred for you to have given The Hart Dynasty a few more minutes while turning this into a squash. Ryder looks like he's set to be a solid part of the midcard, so someone who's been used as a jobber like DJ Gabriel really shouldn't take much effort at all to put away. He doesn't deserve the offence he got in. Happy to see Ryder pick up the win though, and hopefully continue up the card.
Lead pipes are just conveniently placed these days, don't you think?
Like that you're trying to get some storylines going here, though 'son of a bitch' may be a bit too strong for WWE PG.
I appreciate the angle, and in concept, I actually think what you did in the main event was quite a good idea (for ECW; maybe not RAW or SmackDown!), though some things were poorly executed. To begin with, Christian and Swagger never appeared to get back in the ring, so I don't think the match can ever officially start. There was also you having Christian pull the top rope down for Swagger to go tumbling over when once again, they weren't in the ring. Dreamer coming back just a minute or two after he as decked with a Singapore cane and steel chair combo from backstage with a bandage also doesn't make much sense. Like I said, the idea and concept were there. It just didn't come off right, imo.
This was a very fun read, tbh. While I pointed out some things I didn't agree with, what matters is when something is fun to read. A BTB can be technically perfect but boring to read, while you've definitely got my interest, despite this show not being the best the section has ever seen. The fact that it was an hour may help, but I think you're writing should take a lot of credit for that. The show definitely has potential, as you've shown with this first show, though there's also some room for improvement. A good start to what should be a solid brand in this BTB.
