Re: WWE Smackdown!
You asked, so you shall receive.
Starting the show with a backstage segment is something you very rarely see. In fact I can’t remember a time when I saw that happen. Jericho’s character was spot on, but there were several grammar mistakes like “eles” instead of “else”, “theirs” instead of “there’s” and “your” instead of “you’re”. Also, I don’t see why Jericho is complaining about being a tag champion.
The first match was okay, but if Smith got involved, I’m sure Shad would get back at him, but that wasn’t mentioned. The actual finish was fine and I like that you’re putting the Hart Dynasty over.
Jeff’s promo was a bit hit and miss, but the second part of it was more like him.
I still don’t get why Jericho and now Edge aren’t happy about being tag champs. It looks like you’ve got something going on there that could be quite interesting. It’s good me intrigued for sure.
The match between Matt & Morrison was pretty good, and the heel ending worked well here as Morrison did well throughout the match. It gives them the platform to carry this on, and it was executed very well.
So Jericho got the rematch tonight? This is something you should have mentioned as the last we knew, it would be next week with Teddy making his stance earlier. The finish was quite odd considering Jericho was determined to get his title back, but yet he thought he’d get himself DQ’d instead. After the chair shot, we got no reaction like Jericho carrying on or Rey getting help. We needed a bit more than that.
The final promo was okay. There were a few little words that I thought were out of character, but nothing too much. The main talking point was the Punk turn, and I’m not sure whether it was a good thing to rush it or let it develop and make it bigger somewhere down the road. Either way, it’s going to help Punk now and he won’t be booked like a weak champion like he is in IRL.
There weren’t enough promos and the show was short, but that comes with experience. Grammar’s a slight issue and there were some booking problems that I addressed. There’s some good stuff going on too like the Morrison/Matt & Cryme Time/Hart Dynasty feuds. Good luck with it man!
