Crap. I saw the matches on the show and was hoping for a title change between Edge and Big Show instead we get Edge giving the promo of his life and jobbing to Big Slow. I hope Big Show jobs soon, so I can carry about this title again.
As much as I love the Smackdown six, its time to add some talent in this ranking. I don't care for Jamie/Nidia cause I think if there is anyone who doesn't no seel its Jamie Noble, the HHH of the cruiserweights. I'd rather see Matt Hardy or trade for a Tommy Dreamer, Christian, Lance and Regal for a Chris Benoit and Chavo. Ok, mabye not Lance and Regal cause they kill the crowd, but some decent Raw mid-carders. I think problem for Smackdown you can only use these guys for so long til it gets worn out. The other problem is having them job to Big Show is not going to work out well in the end since he is a very temperary fixture and shouldn't kill pushes like Edge's. I would have had Edge win the belt then let Brock/Big Show have their rematch. It foils Heyman's plan, elevuates Edge and gives Brock more of an vengance cause now he can do whatever he wants to Big Show without having to worry about losing the title via DQ.
A Fan- Like I'll be watching this show anyway since I have class at night.
Okay match. O'Haire gets the "first name/guy with TitanTron" pop. Basham and Haas blew a spot where one threw the other out of the ring, eliciting a "You fucked up!" chant from the Drunken Asses (tm) behind me.
Velocity: Crash's shaving cream gag went over well. Albert barely got in the ring before the "Shave your back!" chants. Also, it'll be a shame when they cut out the pre-match schtick with Funaki/Hebner/Chimel/Tazz/the cameraman. Hebneroonie, anyone? The jobbers in the other two matches would have gotten "Who are you?" chants, if anyone could have started coherent ones. DeMott had a pre-taped promo where he said he'd come down and show us what he does, in case you hear any weak "What do you do?" chants. Danny Doring/Bill DeMott drew plenty of "faggot!" shouts from the Drunken Asses (tm) not only behind me, but at ringside. Sheesh, have a LITTLE respect for ECW alums.
Rey got the Pop O' The Night... until we saw Lesnar. Great match to open.
No one gave a crap about Kidman. He got a face "pop" of about twenty people cheering. I mean, shit, Tajiri got a bigger reaction. 'Specially the Tarantula.
Matt getting tossed through the wall got a good reaction. Everyone died at Eddie's comments, though.
Eddie/Angle and Chavito/Benoit ROCKED THE ASS. Easily the biggest pops of the night (especially Angle... chanting "You suck!" to his music will NEVER get old).
Cena's pre-match promo, about Hartford being the toilet of New England, almost got him over as a face. Look, we know that, you don't have to remind us. As for Buchanan's run-in, well, no one knew who the hell it was until the close-up. I thought it was Stamboli.
Big Show gets PYRO~! and a new video? Yay? Either way, Heyman got insane heat. Look for my "LESNAR: HE'S NO TATANKA" sign over their shoulders. And we ate up the chairshot after the promo.
Everyone wanted Steiner, but we didn't get him. Booooo.
Main event: The F5 impressed the hell out of EVERYONE. Dare I say Brock has arrived? The heat during his involvement will not be canned, I assure you. Especially when he slips and falls chasing after Heyman.
When I parked, I noticed a section of spots fenced off. Wonder why. Well, I get back to my car, and I found out why. WRESTLER PARKING~! Grabbed my ticket stub, and got Rey Mysterio and Nidia to sign it. Rey ended up signing a lot of shoes... figure that one out. One kid had Rikishi sign his, so everyone had Rey do it. He was cool... stuck around signing as much as he could. Cena, I believe, did not sign anything, but he posed for pics. The one I noticed was him clutching his wrist and making a weird face. Brock didn't sign anything... he didn't even look at us. Boooo. Nidia was cool, hamming it up a bit. So I'm about to leave, when who should arrive, but the HEBNERS. Since I had started to smudge the Rey/Nidia sigs, I grab my Lesnar sign and have both of them sign it. No one said that Earl screwed that one guy, though.
Also, snagged the new Angle shirt. I can say that besides the "EVIL" shirt, this is the only one I'd wear. But the Hurricane cape is $10 cheaper than a shirt? Whazzupwitdat?

You know, I was thinking the same thing watching the tag match at SS. While these guys are all awesome, I do think some harm could come from them facing only each other for a month or two on end. With Rey and Angle both banged up, it should hopefully give some singles opportunities to Benoit and Edge. (some of which have apparently begun with this week's tapings)
I thought it was good too -- one of the best promos I've seen him do. Now I don't read spoilers, so I didn't have the "benefit" of having any preset expectations. Not too overstated, & didn't seem forced(as his promos often do.)
