The Revolutionary Review
I loved the lead up to this show mate, the way you have started off this fed was great and I’m sure there are a lot of other people that feel the same as I do. Now onto the show!
Segment One –
I expected a promo of this type to open up the show but I believe that you needed to do it like this to explain why Shane did what he did. You didn’t drag this on for too long which was good, he said what he needed to then got the roster out there to join him which was a nice way to start the show off. Oh and I also like the announce team you are using, you seem to write with them well.
Segment Two –
It’s really good to see that you are trying to do something exciting and different with Shelton Benjamin as he has been stale and boring for a long time now. I think the ‘Moneymaker’ character can work and it is definitely a good idea to have Christy Hemme with him as the heel type manager. Next time Benjamin comes out though he should have a cane like the PIMP’s do, I can see that fitting with this character
. The Originator gimmick for CM Punk seems like it could also work, but is he still going to have his ‘Straight Edge’ persona because I don’t think CM Punk should ever go without it. The match was really short, but it was still quite good. I was shocked that Benjamin got the win, but I think that using Hemme to give him the win was a great way to push his heel character and I believe this could either be the start of a nice feud or the start of a Shelton Benjamin push.
Segment Three –
This was another shortish kind of match but I think you might be doing it like that for your weekly shows. The action was quite good before Rhyno interrupted and GORE GORE GORE! I assume he did this because of there history in ECW or something like that, we will have to see as this will hopefully pan out in the next few shows.
Segment Four –
Some old school Edge was great in this segment with the Five Second Pose. I think that whenever Edge is a face he is hugely over with the crowd so this is a good decision. The beginning of the promo was good how he explained why he didn’t join with the NWA. Orton interrupts and I believe that this feud could be a classic if written out properly and I have total faith in you to do this, that’s if that’s what you are going for. I realized in this segment that when somebody wins the title it’s going to be announced something like ‘Here is your winner and NEW NEW Champion …. EDGE!!’ That made me laugh
Segment Five –
It’s good to see that you are giving Kane the push that he has deserved for a long time as the monster heel character. I like that you have put the mask back on him because I believe Kane started to go downhill as soon as he took the mask off in the first place. Again this match was quite short, but maybe you will have an explanation for the size of these matches. I think that because Kane won tonight then Edge is definitely going to beat Orton on next weeks show, but then possibly get screwed out of the championship by Randy Orton. I thought the finish of this match was great though how Kane reversed the Crossface and turned it into the Chokeslam.
Overall I really did like this show to start off your fed, one thing I would definitely want you to do is that if you are going to summarize matches in the future make them a little more detailed or if you are going to write them like that then make them a little longer. Also this show seemed quite short, but maybe it was only meant to be like a one hour show or something so I’m not sure.
- Pushing people like Shelton Benjamin and Kane.
- Edge and Randy Orton feud.
- As I have already said, the match length
- Show length, it actually seemed like a really short show, and you seemed like there was a lot of superstars that you have yet to use.
Can’t wait to see where you go with this man, this first show was really easy to read and was fun and enjoyable, I hope you can keep it up in the future
