Sorry I have been MIA for a bit, but I will give you a few notes on Victory Road. (in no particular order)
I liked Sting's return, and I thought it was a nice touch to end the PPV and give fans "just a little bit more" in terms of enjoyment.
The Main event was fine, but the ending of the match was obviously the best part. Hardy hitting a swanton from the top of the cage would be a nice sight, and would definitely pop the crowd. Styles lead for much of the match, and hopefully he stays in title contention moving forward.
I can't see Joe ever, ever, ever joining the n.W.o. but I am intrigued as to what Bischoff's deal was with Joe that he laid down so easily, especially after dominating much of the match. The n.W.o. needs younger guys, who can win titles and be believable, as Nash, Hall, and Pac are not it...
Flair managing Beer Money is exquisite, but I would have liked to see at least one title change hands here at the PPV.
The king of the Mountain stuff was all as expected, except for the tag match. Christopher Daniels and Wolfe both can definitely be in the title hunt, and I expect them to do most of the heavy lifting in the King of the Mountain.
Motor City vs Tommy Mercer was.. well odd. you put commercials in your PPV. I assume you just mean video vignettes? I understand Mercer winning, and seeming like an animal after being worked into a frenzy by London and Kendrick, but I don't think its a good idea to have a tag team, especially an established one like MCMG, lose to a singles guy who is a nobody at this point. London and Kendrick losing to MCMG makes everyone look bad, as it would seem like Mercer>MCMG>London and Kendrick which doesnt work since Mercer is their "second" and if L&K win, its the same situation.
