I thought the show had some bland spots and some great moments. I didn't like the mini-rumble, due to the ending of it.

Once I heard their music, I knew I'd love Deuce and Domino. The look and the style have already won me over, but Cherry seems like she needs to work on her roller-skating skills.

I'm not sure if they are trying to make MVP look like a complete heel by not wanting to wrestle with an injured back (in the storyline, at least). To me, it seemed like Teddy Long was being more of a bully than anything.

Great commentating as always!

I personally can't stand Deuce and Domino. Bad music, bad acting, just a total disaster. They're a bad joke, and if they ever advance beyond squashing guys they'll make the entire tag division (all two and a half teams of it) look like a joke.

You're kidding. They've got a great act, they play it well, and two matches in they've already got a notable finishing sequence. Personal taste and all, but caling them a "total disaster" is just insane.



To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow

Maybe I'm not quite "hip" or "urban" and I don't have a lot of "street cred", but I'm enjoying the Deuce & Domino gimmick a lot more than Cryme Tyme.

And yes, JBL rules the universe as a color man.

I love Deuce and Domino. And I love the build to Undertaker/Batista. It's setting up Batista vs. Undertaker, so there's less reason to celebrate, but between that and the great last two weeks of Raw with Michaels and RRKO, so far the build to Wrestlemania has already been much better than it was last year.

Holy crap, Deuce and Domino are AWESOME! I am getting a real kick out of their greaser gimmick. They work well together in the ring, and they had a great look, as well.

I think the tag titles should be unified and defended/contested on all three shows.

This was the first SD! I'd actually caught in ages, and saw Deuce and Domino for the first time. I like the Cryme Tyme gimmick, and like their's as well. The rollerskates, leather jackets, and the car make it, and that finisher is brutal. It's one of those for Deuce that work in tag and single's matches.

Glad to finally have SD, nice to see what's going on instead of trying to read up on it every week.

And c'mon, Deuce 'N Domino are billed from, "The Other Side of the Tracks." How great is that? And I love how Chimel says it too.

Not "The WRONG side", but "the OTHER side", in case they ever turn these two face.

It's a big mix of gimmicks too; the "jealous boyfriend" gimmick, the "overprotective older brother" gimmick, and the "50s hoods" gimmick. Of course, they're brawlers, so the IWC has to hate them on principle, but that will hopefully pass with time.

I'm really interested in hearing what you guys think passes for "good" color commentary.

I mean, diff'rent strokes and all, but JBL is a pain to listen to.

Aside from the fact that his voice and manner of pronunciation makes him sound like he's constipated, his commentating never seems any more to me than a veiled promo for himself -- talking about his title reigns and financial success, whatever. He's commentates as JBL the wrestler, which is absolutely wrong in my view.

And NO, this isn't a case of, "Well, all the color guys commentate like that." No, they didn't. Sure, Tazz maintained his character a bit, but that was an afterthought, he was focusing on putting the match over, not himself.

It seems like JBL is trying VERY hard to be like Jesse, who was the best of them all from a pure color comm. standpoint. The problem is, Jesse was always over and at least sounded honest, even when he was covering for the heels.

JBL puts himself over because he's a heel. He's supposed to be an arrogant pig. He also talks about how great London and Kendrick are, what a wrestling machine Chris Benoit is, he totally plays along with the King Booker character, he consistently calls Gregory Helms the future of the brand, he often mentions how he think Matt Hardy could be world champion one day, and he has great bully/victim chemistry with Cole.

If Vince can bring in K-Fed, then he can bring in Andrew Dice Clay to be Deuce & Domino's manager.

Dice doing promos, helping out behind the announcing booth during his teams matches and getting into arguments and confrontations with other wrestlers could be fun to watch.

Except Dice is an 80s icon, and they're set in the 50s.

With all due respect, that's a weak answer.

Again, Jesse was a heel and didn't need to talk about himself all the time and still called the match -- and again, he made it appear even-handed. Same with every other wrestler-commentator they've had-- who were all over on their own and didn't need to remind people of it every other sentence -- like a wrestler would and a commentator shouldn't. JBL speaking the world of so-and-so is just an underlying theme to the way he comments...which is promo-ing for himself.

And another thing, throwing "the greatest _____ of all-time" doesn't make it so. Someone needs to tell both JBL AND Cole this.

It's not a weak answer. He puts people over, he's funny, and he's got good chemistry with Cole. He also rags on Cole whenever he says something exceptionally stupid. He's not supposed to call the match-that's what the play-by-play guy does. I tihnk you have other issues with Bradshaw that you've carried over into judging his commentary.

And how does JBL talking about how great the guy in the ring is put himself over? What a weird connection to make.

JBL has done more for Gregory Helms than anybody since WCW put him with the Nitro Girls.

Seriously, now that Tazz is dogging it, JBL is the best color man in the business. He's done a great job of putting over the faces as legitimate threats while doing everything he can to side with the heels. The only other one who was really any better at that style of commentary off the top of my head was Heenan. JBL's way better at it than Lawler.

Upon hearing about how Bobby Heenan sayaing he is going to call some matches I was thinking what if they do this: RAW Brand matches: Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler SD Brand Matches: Cole and Tazz And the RAW vs SD matches: Gene Okerlund and Bobby Heenan
