When the show was posted
Seriously though, when the Board of Directors left. This place was too complicated and had too much stuff going on in all honesty. Like big storylines with Board of Directors and such. TWE was trying too hard to be a big e-fed when it was realistically never going to be that. It was never going to be the size of EWNCW, JBW or IWA. So I think that the downscaling and stripping back to a more raw product is a good move.
The Van Darius vs Patrick Michaels match. The Vixxens match was also great too.
Not many to chose from, but that's understandable given that this show was about the re-branding and laying out the playing field for what's to come. I'll pick Van Darius' promo as the best in this case.
Best Piece of Booking:
Van Darius refusing to shake the hand of Pamich after the match. Interested to see where that's going.
Any Piece of Booking You Didn't Like:
No tag team action. but again, this could be tied in with the need to sort out other things on this particular show.
Any Matches and/or Promos That Could've Been Improved:
The Kaige vs JJJ match could have used more detail in the written parts of the match. For example; it said at one point "Chamberlain reverses into his Finisher which lays out JJJ"
. What is Kaige's finisher? I don't know. So that was a bit poor for me. This match just needed more in the written parts to flesh it out a bit and give more detail to the reader.
Any Other Positives:
Just the whole re-branding. I think this will allow for this place to be something closer to what NxT is for WWE at the moment now. The smaller more intimate shows packed with quick action. This show gave a little glimpse of that for sure.
Anything else that fell below your expectation:
There was no theme at the top of the show. Some of the colors used were hard to read on the eye (the yellow used for Pamich's promo for example). The commentary could use a little more detail perhaps? Why were the crowd chanting "Thank you Tommy" during the Pamich promo? That was a bit confusing to me. I mean Pamich was talking about the EWNCW bosses giving him the chance to run the show, so it seems a bit weird that the crowd chant for the ENWCW Champion out of nowhere, so not sure what was up with that.
How would you improve the negative comments (if any):
Pick a suitable theme. Watch that you don't use colors that are hard to read. Just flesh out the commentary a bit more to give more detail between segments, when people are making their entrances and such.
Overall Show Grade:
I'll give this one a C+ for the small kinks that there's still to work out. That's good for a first show though.
