What Worked

TKG: Really liked the tails on La Resistance. Kept on expecting Jackie Fargo to run in to make the save. Match itself STANK STANK STANK. But I liked the tails.

PAS: Man Regal is just a step above everyone else on this show. From his opening promo to his early match beatdown to every moment of him getting destroyed was just awesome. Helmsley is very much Bradshaw to Regal's Eddie, as he doesn't do much. Man the little things here ruled, Regals look of bloody fury before he gets hit with the sledgehammer, his selling of a nutshot, the alliteration in his promo, REGAL MOTHERFUCKERS REGAL.

TKG:Regal just has one great segment after another. I'd like to see him have , you know an actual match. but he is gold in all his segments. The early sections of match where Regal worked over Helmsley were super fun as you go "damn i forgot how great Regal's straight rights are" and then he changes it up and throws a beautiful jab. Helmsley pussy's out on a knee lift where he locks his arm Hogan style to not take any impact. I mean shit Regal leans way in for you shitty arcing punch and you can't take a knee. Fun segments. Still would like to see a match.

PAS: I really enjoy the look of disgust on Carmella's face every time the camera isn't on her. I don't know who anyone who would let Hef come on her tits can be beneath anything, but she is beneath this.

TKG: Christy gets on mic and announces that "I really want to live this life". It really looked like she already had lived the WWF lifestyle circa 97. I mean Doc Hendryx wasn't inducting her into the Freebirds, he was trying to kill an infection.

PAS: Trios match was alot of fun, I really liked Orton's chinlock, which can always be hit or miss. Beniot v. Flair is always really fun, although I was shocked Flair didn't take the rolling Germans. Batista almost looked Sioux with his tan and ruled it as usual. Really hot crowd too.

TKG: This was fun. I forgot how much I like Randy Orton as guy standing on apron. As he is really good on the apron. His in ring stuff was hit and miss. His squat, slap his knees, and then jump up for German's was just embarrassing. I forgot how much I don't like Edge on apron as for guy made his name for self in tag work he just seems disinterested on apron. But the storyline between him and Jericho made his disinterest in Jericho, work. Is Flair the only person who takes Benoit's snap suplex? The crowd was hot all night, and this had all the spots to play off that heat. The ending was pretty perfect.

What Didn't Work

TKG: Wow their booking is officially lapping itself. It's one thing to repeat the same spots from last battle Royale but doing the same post royale angle where Jericho's friend turns on him because of being eliminated. Just lazy.

PAS: I was really excited for Rosie v. Tomko, but it didn't live up to my expectations. Tomko may be a guy who can only have good matches with Venis. Tomko goes right back on offense after taking a second rope legdrop from a fat Samoan, and doesn't do the Garvin stomp.

TKG: Yeah I dug this until Tomko no sold the second rope leg drop and went straight on offense. Wasn't a fan of Tomko's claw on Heat but yeah those Garvin Stomps were nasty. Kiebler really is flexible, which must be a requirement to valet for El Dandy.

PAS: Winner gets married? Clearly none of the writers have actually been married. My wife and I have the secret to making a marriage last. Two times a week, we go to a nice restaurant, a little wine, good food..... She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays. I mean my wife and I went back to the hotel where we spent our wedding night. Only this time, I stayed in the bathroom and cried. I mean I take my wife everywhere, but she keeps finding her way back. All my wife does is shop - once she was sick for a week, and three stores went under. I mean my wife will buy anything marked down. Last year she bought an escalator.

- Helmsley comes out *pissed*, he rants, he spews spit he YELLS. Regal comes out barely raises his voice and you can tell that you shouldn't be fucking with him.

- Why does the WWE give us Tomko vs Rosey? There is so much more talent in the Lower Card. Why give us a shitty 5 minute match that no one will care about when they can give us a good 5 minute match that no one will care about?

Seriously, everyone else on the rosters need to follow Regal's lead and follow the new dress code with dignity and respect. That's what Regal does and because of that, he's the hottest babyface on Raw right now. The suit makes the man, period. Heck, if Chris Jericho is going to continue to host a talk show, he needs an Armani to work the part. I guarantee you if Jericho did that, and Oprah went channel-surfing and noticed that, she'd scream, "Oh, shit, a threat to my time slot!"

Seriously, is Regal actually cleared to wrestle? Besides the battle royale, where nobody does anything except for the final number of guys, all we've had are teased Regal matches that aren't delivered. Is something up with his condition?

He does the same routine when taking a chair shot. Every single motherfucking time.

The guy's hand is already six inches in front of his face, before the chair makes contact. And EVERY time, JR has to cover with: "Helmsly tried to block it, but WHAT IMPACT!"
