Re: WWE: Smacked Down
Hey, this one was decent! I am really not a fan of WWE or SD!, but I gave it a try, and found myself entertained. You payed attention to the details, which help paint the picture. Most of the dialogue was authentic, from the commentators to the in ring talent. The SES/Bourne-Mysterio angle was really good to kick off the show. That's where I got hooked, as it felt pretty authentic. You even pointed out Mysterio's gear color - which is a nice touch when it comes to a chameleon type like Rey Rey. Also, Goldust's antics were spot on, and I really appreciated him being used.
Though, things got a little puzzling during some of the matches. The Morrison/Regal match left me guessing on some of the pure wrestling exchanges. But that is to be expected - as sometimes it's just flat out hard to describe some of the technical switches, counters and reversals. And I'm still wondering on that Kofi crossbody turned into Swagger's "All American" powerbomb. I'm not quite sure if that would work out. Either way, I'm not gonna gripe about those little things, because the bigger picture is painted. A clear and concise BTB that I will be reading for sure - good job!
