Re: GCB's WWE
WOOO! It's finally here man. It'll be live feedback so yeah, here we go!
Interesting that you had the ladder match go on first. I think it's a pretty good one to go with since you'll have it out of the way. However, I kind of wasn't feeling this match. It was as if each guy threw all they had at one another but every time, the guy would recover rather quickly. Maybe it was a little low on details but with the Royal Rumble Match having to be written, it may have burnt you out. I did like that spot where Bryan performed the German Suplex on Dibiase from the ladder, that was cool. That part where you added in that Gabriel was watching who his opponent would be was good too as it really makes the belt something credible since Gabriel doesn't want to lose it. Hopefully after this loss, you're setting up Bryan for bigger and better things while building a new midcard or potentially main event star in Dibiase.
Glad to see that the Divas are getting some attention. Still not sure about the pairing of Kharma and McCool since they're pretty good solo but I'll just roll with it for now. The Divas Division is surely improving in this thread, slowly but surely.
Now for the NXT stuff. I like how your go about your NXT business. JBL is a great choice for a mentor and so is the Rock. JBL's team is superior to Rocky's team but you could pull out some surprises. What I take from that battle royal is that some, maybe all of those guys on NXT are here to stay. They just needed some air time and this was a way to do it. With the winner being Kaval, it's really interesting to see where you go from here. You had some physical interactions between the mentors and even Santino plays a part, all storyline going on here which makes me think everyone is here to stay.
This sure was a battle for the WWE Title. I kind of thought that Barrett would have called off his Nexus here and prevailed giving him the credibility. Kind of dislike Barrett a little now that you didn't use this chance to really build him up here. But I think that you have something in store for this so I wouldn't count this out just yet. I just thought that at the Royal Rumble, it would've been the perfect place and time for Barrett to be given the rub from HHH. I guess this whole idea where HHH buries talent exists here too? Lol. But it was a good written match GCB. This is not negative comments at all, just giving my opinion. And whaaat?! Y2J? OHHHH YEAAAAH!
Underhanded tactics sure are the trend right now just like JR said. Your tag team division is certainly going places and with you crowning new tag champions, I fully expect you to give us a show with your division. Don't mind the new tag team champions, it was kind of obvious that they would win but I also thought that the Broskis would've had a better shot with their winning streak and all. Not much to say about the tag team match, but good job here. Wanting more, but I'm sure you'll deliver on that.
No feel good moment here for Christian? Aww, but that's really the right decision as Punk needed to retain here. Having Cole come out made me think that either Christian would be far away from the World Title or he'll be even closer, don't know yet. And with how the ending went, it's all just cliffhanger here, and I don't mind that. This was definitely match of the night for me, but maybe the Rumble will change that. And good face time for Miz here. Hmm, maybe he really could win since you had him be interviewed. I'm really lost at who will win the Rumble, good job, haha.
Wow, what a Rumble. While I don't agree with Rocky being in it, since you could've used to for another purpose like putting over someone, I guess you didn't it to further the angst that he has with JBL. All the surprise entrants were really good. Interesting to see HBK come back but he surely wasn't going to win. The two people who I thought had the best showing were Edge and Miz. You've furthered their own storylines with the way that they got eliminated, which is all we can really ask for. I commend you on doing a Rumble match, it must've been a real pain. Seeing that Orton came #1, I was checking back and re-reading everything to see that he didn't get eliminated yet. What a tease you had with the final two being Cena and Orton, well played GCB, well played. I kind of did not like how Orton was eliminated, but this sets him up for something with Kurt Angle.
With all that said, I still don't think that this way your best Pay-Per-View. I still think that Survivor Series was your best and maybe you'd agree too. Up next is Elimination Chamber, you've got a lot of feuds that you can go with. It's just a matter of pulling the trigger. You set everything up nicely and thinking of it, you could go a ton of ways with Cena here. I definitely am amp'd to see what you come up with in the fallout of RAW. Kudos GCB. GREAT, GREAT JOB.
