What Worked

PAS: Benoit v. Rob Conway was a fine Six Flags OVW main event. Working 50/50 with Conway says undercard though. I am excited for a Regal and Beniot undercard tag team, too bad the Armstrongs aren't around for them to feud with. They could trade those guys to Smackdown to mix into the Bashams v. FBI Velocity feud, that would be fun.

TKG: 50:50. that was more like 70; 30 with Conway dominating. Yeah the Regal/Benoit team should really be traded to Velocity where all the good tag matches take place.

PAS: I liked the fargo strut, nice shout out to Keirn working gorilla. Micheals looks paunchier and balder then current Stan Lane though.

TKG: Its about time they aborted the Kane/Lita angle. I was kind of hoping they'd wait till the next joint brand PPV so at least Kidman could turn heel by SSP her into stillbirth. Dean Malenko should have also felt her up on the gurney, to maintain continuity and maybe set up that match. Kane is a PWF-gumi alumn. It might work.

PAS: I imagine Gene Snisky should have a nice ECCW run against Dr. Luther working as the Abortionist. Maybe he could get a Portland Lucha run against Pierroth.

What Didn't Work

TKG: Wow Heyman is a GENIUS. Every single match on the show had same layout. 20 minute angle setting up IMPROMPTU match joined in progress.

TKG: Abdullah didn't jump out of the box. It doesn't work.

PAS: Outside of the Fargo strut that match was ugly. Tomko has a nice clothesline which HBK sells by checking his hair plugs. Captain Charisma is a better shitty gimmick name then CLB.

TKG: I know they lost their guy that does PPV promos, did they also lose their head director? This match was filled with close ups on guys calling spots. Close-up, spot call, wide shot spot executed. Again and again. Kane comes out to work a jobber who is almost as tall as him? Kane is supposed to be 7 feet tall. Is the jobber supposed to be 6'10". They can't find a short wrestler on the indies????And Vince comes out with his old man who shat his pants strut to announce another new promotion restart. They're restarting again??? New season? How do you have a new season of a show that runs all year?

PAS: I was excited to see WWE get hit with a big fine for running unlicensed boxing. I wanted a stripper to get Brakkused, cheap bait and switch bullshit.

SO disappointed that there was no Workrate Report Recognition of the "show the transition that occurred during the ad break in the inset window" spot in the IMPROMPTU! tag match which was surely included solely for YOUR benefit, lest anyone have to wonder how Michaels and Jericho can be alone in the ring before those Japanese guys crane and strain their necks to see if their M-Azing Bar is opening or not while afterwards Tomko is pummelling the hell out of Jericho. SEE! THEY DO READ THEM "WHAT DIDN'T WORKED" BITS

If your gonna do something SOLELY for my benefit... the correct move would be to have Stacy Kiebler dancing to Laidback's "White Horse".

I mean whose idea was it to have her boney ass dancing to "Brickhouse"? I can't believe that they actually paid the licensing cost for that. Don't they have access to Flash Funks old music.

But yeah the inset box was a nice touch.

Lawler's commentary gets shit on a lot on the web. And well, he deserves a lot of that criticism. But he's been pretty consistant in at least explaining to the home audience what the transition was during the commercial break.

So yeah I noticed the clip explaining the transitions...but I really had hard time complimenting WWE production last night as well the rest of that match was filmed really poorly. Lots of close ups on spot calling. Lots of close ups on HBK adjusting his hair plugs. The least interesting angle on the double dive. The angle on HBK's superkick which seemed to overemphasize the wide sweeping arc of his hand as it slapped his leg. It really felt like a behind the magic special.

Two women won last time, so perhaps two men will win this time. At least I hope so: the remaining women are horrendous. Jamie is butt-ugly and psychotic and Kelly is a big whiny baby who looks too much like Lita. John and Jonah will win it.
