Re: OML presents WWE 2011: Era of Prominence
Raw was good. The long text of recap from last week's show at the start of Raw are kind of unnecessary, i suppose you can sum that up in a paragraph. Starting off with the triple threat for the vacant WWE Championship was interesting. It was a good back and forth match and I wanted to see a winner here but I can understand why you went with a no contest. Cena is pissed and he's come out to spoil Miz's big moment of winning the belt. I think Mysterio's feud with Del Rio will continue.
I wonder how long you keep Cena out for, will HHH bring him back or will he continue to do run ins during matches. I think he will show up in the battle royal next week to eliminate someone, maybe The Miz?
I liked the McMahon segments throughout the show. It was interesting reading all the points he made about the status of the WWE Title. It seems realistic how you've portrayed McMahon's on screen character here so that's a good job done here.
One thing that I think you should do is align the text for your match write ups, It would look a lot better and organized. I just want to say that I don't really enjoy reading long shows as they are difficult to get through but I liked what you did with the promos and the matches. You kept my interest here throughout the show.
R-Truth vs Riley was good. R-Truth was great as a heel and If only the WWE kept him heel longer. I hope you keep R-Truth heel for a long time, his crazy heel character was awesome. I think he will be one of your best characters in this thread. I enjoyed Morrison's return, good to see him back. He has unfinished business with R-Truth, R-Truth put him out of action so he's coming to get his revenge.
The 6 man tag had good action, I really thought the heels would win this but Kofi's team won. Looks like Ryder is going to feud with Ziggler, should be good. I can see Ryder winning the US belt soon and hopefully you move Dolph into the main event.
I liked the backstage segment with Ryder running into Vince. Ryder having a long interaction with Vince, pissing the owner off by standing up for Cena and then Vince punishes him. This all then leads to Mark Henry destroying Ryder. Henry needs to look dominant so he's gone through Ryder easily. I expect Orton to beat Henry but Henry will probably be challenging for the world title at Night of Champions.
Mason Ryan vs JTG- This match doesn't excite me but at least it was kept short. I was not a fan of guys like Mason Ryan, JTG, Otunga or Joe Hennig. Ryan quickly goes through JTG and then destroys Hennig and Otunga. Skip Sheffield returning is interesting. It looks like the Nexus stable will continue on and will probably lead to more members joining the group. I was not a fan of his when he was in Nexus but when he became Ryback that's when I started to like him.
My favourite part of this show was the final segment of the show between Vince and HHH. Solid segment. Vince is trying many ways to crown a champion here and now his latest idea is a battle royal. I enjoy battle royals. Good to see HHH back, HHH back on tv will be very interesting. HHH coming back to make Vince realise that he can't let Punk get away with this. HHH made a lot of good points here that Vince needs to get the belt back. Now that Punk is back, I think the battle royal will still go ahead and it will be a #1 contenders match for Punk's title. Since HHH is in the match, I think he will win the battle royal and will challenge Punk for the title at SummerSlam. Unless Cena does a run in and wins the battle royal and HHH is the ref for Punk vs Cena II at SummerSlam. I'd prefer to see HHH getting the SummerSlam title shot. I'm a HHH fan so I'd like to see him beat Punk but a lot of Punk fans were angry that HHH beat Punk in real life at NOC. I think you will have Punk going over HHH here. So yeah you will rewrite history haha. btw are you going to bring Kevin Nash back?
Overall Raw was a good show. I do think you could have cut back on some of the returns as a lot of stars returned on this show. Also the show probably needed an extra match as you had two quick bouts on the show but anyway as the show was more promo heavy maybe next time you will have more matches. The WWE Title situation throughout the show was interesting. The segments were really good.
SummerSlam looks great so far, the poster is awesome. I like your show banners. Good to see most of the stars featured on the SummerSlam poster. SummerSlam looks promising, I hope you have Christian retaining the belt as he deserved a good reign. He was booked horribly during his run as champion. The No Holds Barred match between Morrison and R-Truth should be fun. Keep up good work in this thread (y) you have lots of potential here to create new stars and elevate them.
