Re: AMRocky25 Presents: WWE - The Future
I'm guessing Kennedy is a face based on the fact he got 87% of the vote and he got screwed out of the match by Orton & Legacy. I am curious as to what you're going to do with Legacy and how long you plan to keep them together. As a suggestion for future shows, you should use a person's whole name when they are speaking, not just their first name/last name/nickname. I wasn't feeling Orton's character as much as I would've liked. Considering he has been built up to be more of a 'vicious' heel so to speak, his comments on the mic were questionable, especially since he's never been someone to care what the fans say to him. I felt that Orton was too vocal in this promo, maybe a bit more than what he usually is and what his character requires. Vickie's usually a lot more blunt, but at least she's not being hated completely. The characters from both Orton/Cena were a bit off in terms of their mic work (although Cena was much more in character than Orton), and I felt the segment was too short for your opening promo, but that can easly be fixed. I felt like the attack wasn't necessary and didn't fit in at that moment. It would have been better to save it for the main event and lead to a big brawl or something afterwards.
So are Regal/Kendrick a team now? If so, I look forward to seeing what happens with them and how they are booked. Nice to see that their egos interfere and they argue about what happened. I'm a bit surprised that Chavo/Santino weigh more than Regal/Kendrick. I'm not sure if the right team went over, but all four of these guys could do well with a push if booked properly, so we'll see what happens with the US Title situation and all that jazz. The finish was appropriate as, although he pins him clean, it's with a quick school boy, so Regal still maintains credibility.
The Legacy interview seemed pretty good and in character and put all three members, especially Rhodes & DiBiase, over even more. Should be interesting to see who joins their Survivor Series team.
Neither Kofi or Vickie seemed to be in character. I like the fact that you're pushing both Kofi & The Miz, though. Kingston taking on DiBiase seems a bit odd since I feel like we've already seen enough of Legacy (this will be the 3rd time already), and we're bound to see them somehow in the main event. It also guarantees that DiBiase won't be competing for Orton in the main event (although I suppose it still could happen). The finish is questionable. Rhodes is at ringside but doesn't get involved, but instead, the Miz gets involved. I think had Rhodes & Miz both tried to get involved somehow you could have worked it that there were too many distractions and it ended up costing DiBiase, which would have helped Kofi since DiBiase is looking so strong right now anyways.
I love HBK, but nobody likes a sulker. Meh, I'm not sure whether Shawn being so downed will lead to a possible retirement in the near future or not. If so, good work at dropping some breadcrumbs along the way. Ahhh not Cena again. He's charismatic, but there's only so much of him I can take in a short time span. Lack of realism kicked in as Shawn was thinking he's "lost it" just a few moments ago, and now, he's all energetic with "WE'RE IN!". Character needed work on all 3 of them as well as none of them were in that great of character.
Something I've noticed is that I'm not seeing a lot of crowd reactions, unfortunately. There has been quite a few moments where crowd reactions could fit in the promos, but they've been left out. Matt's promo was pretty good, which is good since he's usually stale and bland and awful to listen to, but you gave him rudimentary mic skills, which is nice. However, the only problem wtih Matt here is that at times, he appeared to be a face, and then at other times, he appeared to be a heel.
A fairly enjoyable match for television. Matt going over HBK is pretty big, although for quite some time now, HBK has been used all too often to put people over, and after a while, it isn't as impressive. I was expecting something after the match with Shawn looking upset over losing or something, especially after his promo with HHH earlier.
This is the 3rd time we've seen Orton and the 3rd time we've seen Matt, and it's all been in the first hour (and just a bit after) of the show. With Orton, it's acceptable because he's trying to recruit people, but with Matt, we're done seeing him (unless it's at the end of the show in order to give it a big enough break, but still). Orton patronizing Matt is a bit odd. I know he wants him on his Survivor Series team, but it's still fairly out of character for him. I can see someone like Edge doing this, but not Orton during the current era.
I remember this happening back around the time of Night of Champions when Miz was trying to score with Maryse. If The Miz is going to go over as 'The Chick Magnet', it would probably be beneficial to have a female valet, but I would prefer someone who can't wrestle because I don't want Maryse to be torn away from the women's division. A solid diva's match, but you're not going to get anything great with Kelly Kelly in there (the rest are all good workers, however). Kelly Kelly would be a good valet for the Miz if he was face. Anyways, Maryse as champion is good, but I'm excited about a Mickie push and hopefully she ends up being the one to take the title off of Maryse.
3rd interview segment, Cena's 4th appearance. You can get away with 3 interviews (potentially), but Cena is just stinking the place up lol.
Big Show is United States Champion? I'm not a big fan of him, actually, but I actually quite enjoy that you're keeping away from the World Title scene right now, since he really should not be anywhere near it. Batista is a great pick, I think it will be hard for Cena's team to lose with such star power, even though I know it will be hard to put a bump in the road to Rhodes/DiBiase's monster push. Both men getting an equal amount of offense in isn't realistic since Big Show would control more of the match than Batista, even though Batista is still a pretty big guy. The good part about the finish is that Batista can still come out looking strong, and at the same time, the Big Show goes over and makes his championship reign look solid. Batista has lost two nights in a row, however, so hopefully you can build him back up as much as possible. Shawn was fucking everybody up afterwards with Sweet Chin Music, which was needed imo. I'm not all surprised that Kennedy is the 5th member of Cena's team. It almost would have made more sense for Team Orton vs. Team Kennedy, but Cena is the safer choice. I can see the match coming down to Cena & Kennedy vs. Orton/Rhodes/DiBiase.
Overall, the show had some good points, but there are also things to improve on. The biggest thing to work on is character since I mentioned that people weren't in character a number of times and it definitely affects the show. Also, remember not to overuse everyone on the show (example, we saw John Cena 5 times) unless you absolutely have to if they need to look strong in a hurry. All in all it was a fairly decent show - keep it up.
