I love this time period and I'm looking forward to what you are going to do with it. And don't knock yourself down for not being a "strong writer." Practice makes perfect.

All the best.
So I'm not going to do predictions, because it'll just be your decisions being made. The preview looks good and the matches look alright. The one thing I wanted to comment on though was the people in the Money in the Bank match. You could have had Gregory Helms, Shelton Benjamin and more, but instead you chose to go with Eugene and the virtually unheard of Ken Doane? That seems like a bit of a rush.

All in all, it should be interesting and I look forward to what you choose to do with it.
Alright, here we go. I know you were a bit scared because you didn't have much faith in your writing skills, but all in all, I thought that area was fine. If I were you, I would have thrown a few more paragraphs into the matches to split them up a tad more to make them feel a bit better.

Booking wise, I had a feeling that you would have Eugene win and make the turn once I saw him in the Money in the Bank match but I was hoping you wouldn't do it. It feels a tad rushed to take him from joke character to a potential Number 1 Contender. With that being said, you could blow me away with it and I have faith that you could make it awesome.

Chris Benoit going over Edge surprised me, as I think Edge was always a strong champion in 2006 and you could do more with him on the mic then you could with Benoit. With that being said, Benoit was always a solid champion and if it's done well, hasn't been done very often in this timeline of threads.

The Orton-Michaels thing was pretty awesome. The spot at the end was a good idea. This could become something sweet but I don't know if you are going to continue it with the - well - lack of build this got and the heel winning. Not sure how you would continue it.

Other then what I commented on, I felt this. I have faith. When you're writing your first show, make sure you look at the standard formatting of most of the big shows in this section and try and get something similar. Formatting is one thing that really throws people off when it comes to a good thread.

All the best with it mate.

Alright, so I've never been one to go segment by segment in reviews, so fair warning that I'll jump around a bit.

First things first, your work with Dinsmore is good. I enjoyed the promo for the most part; however, it did run long and it seems like you were repeating a lot. While you did a good job at creating this new character, I would have preferred to see you give someone to bounce off.

On a similar note, giving Angle someone other than Bischoff to work with would have made the first promo a lot better. Angle felt alright, not the greatest but definitely not the worst I have ever read.

There were a few odd lines here and there throughout the show, one that I noticed was: "that little Mexican" in the Dinsmore promo. With that being said, most of it was fine and will come with time.

Another compliment I wanted to give was Helms saying what he did to Rosey. That made me laugh and the commentators confusion after also made me smile.

With that being said, not a super duper fan of the commentary during the show. It was fine, but it didn't really add anything. The commentators are meant to be the vehicle that we see the show through, but you used them more to describe what was going on when you could have just used the descriptions to do that.

As an example:

Lawler: He is also known as the Samoan Bulldozer.

Coach: And standing next to him there is his manager, Armando Alejandro Estrada.
Man, I hated this portion. If you wanted to give him this nickname and such, you should have given AAE time on the microphone to introduce himself and Umaga. Let the commentators talk about how he has monstered outside of the WWE, how there have been stories of the devastating Samoan Spike and things of the sort. I disagree with a lot of people, and think that the commentators are integral to overall hype surrounding a written show. I hope I'm not being too harsh with this, but I think this is an area could be improved.

The matches were fine.

The main event felt a bit rush-ish. Orton coming in was fine. Triple H jumping the barrier was fine. Snitsky going over felt a bit odd and like you want to give him a boost. You made him look good at Wrestlemania and in this match, as well as the rub of Triple H being intimidated - while not my favourite part of the show - I can see what you're doing there.

You're doing Mickie really well. There's not much more I wanted to say other then I think the booked tag team match was a little off, pairing Mickie with Lita without have Mickie do something to Lita to make Trish look better. The justification after the match did make it look a bit better, something irked me about the tag team match.

Honestly, for the first show in a long time, it was a good read. There is shit to improve - as we all have - but of course, plenty of time to do that.

Oh and one more thought: Include some black in your shows. I don't mind where you put it, but the red really needs to be broken up.

Good luck buddy.
