Lets do this! Just before I get going though, like to give a big thanks to people for the positive feedback on my joint promos as Ambrose with THBK as The Rock. Also, i'd like to hear thoughts from the creative team on the depth in which I give my feedback.
Favorite Moment: Brock Lesnar finally sending a real message to that runt Tyson Kidd, I have to admit i've been getting really bored of the way Kidd has dominated this feud and somehow still not managed to impress me. That's not me trying to be mean, what i'm trying to say is for a World Champ Tyson hasn't exactly set Nitro on fire, whether that's due to a lack of ambition from all involved or something else I couldn't possibly say. Suffice to say however I have been and will continue routing for Brock Lesnar to reclaim that title until i'm convinced Kidd can carry the brand.
Best Match: Some good matches on show tonight, though I will say they didn't give the depth of description as Monday Night Raw this past week. So for me the best match award will have to go to the top of the shop between Miz, Anderson and Edge. It was probably the only match on the night with real star quality, in terms of who was involved and what the match relates to.
Best Promo: I'm a big fan of nepotism, I want to give the best promo award to myself and THBK.. but i'm not going to, as there were two other guys that in context gave more impactful promos tonight. So it's a tie, between Brutus Magnus and Roman Reigns, I'd pretty much guessed it was Magnus but Reigns appearance with Daniels was a big surprise to me, I like surprises. And both men delivered good promos which gets me interested in their character development.
Best Piece of Booking: Ambrose vs Rock being given their own match away from the MITB ladder match. I'll let you behind the curtain for a moment, as much fun as it would be to have a chance at getting a MITB contract for a shot at the WHC, it's not nearly as much fun as my own personal character development i've laid out for Ambrose, nor is it nearly as fun as the personal feud of the year contender myself and THBK have been kicking out over the last couple of months. Dean Ambrose is not here to win titles, Dean Ambrose is here to fight, if he wins a title in the process you better believe he's only doing it to spite the rest of the roster to force them into fighting him.
Best Debut *when applicable*: I would have given this to Magnus.. has he not already cut a couple of promos in the weeks prior to this. So this weeks Best Debut has got to be given to Roman Reigns who caught me off guard with his appearance and then managed to cut a pretty sweet Shield-like promo on his own.
Any Piece of Booking You Didn't Like: Am I the only person who thinks we're being double bluffed on this Jimmy Rave/Undertaker shtick? Orton seems to be in the neighbourhood every time Jimmy Rave accosts Taker and it's making me believe he's the guy Rave is talking about. I'd be disappointed if that's the case, i'm hoping it's a new entity. So with that said, this comment is more speculative and not exactly real criticism, just me thinking out loud.
Any Matches and/or Promos That Could've Been Improved: I did feel there were a couple of short matches that seemed a little rushed, time constraints are probably to blame for this and is completely forgivable but i'm hoping we'll see a little resurgence next week. In terms of promos, Goldbergs was a little short but he was never a big talker, again not really criticism, more of an observation.
Any Other Positives: Other promos that ticked my boxes were obviously my own and THBK's, we put a lot of work into these behind the scenes to make sure we're on the money and I like to think it shows. Edge was great, Eddie thinks he's had a dip in form lately but he's just being modest I reckon! Lesnar and Kidd was done well, but I want more! And good job to the various Divas on display. In terms of story lines and other stuff, Christian being in MITB is good, also it's funny to see Ricardo being used as a wrestler as he was in FCW, the guy is pretty good in the ring for a round guy. The end of the show was blockbuster too, and I can honestly say kept true to how I want to play Ambrose, anti-authoritarian, sinister, brutal and obscene.
Anything else that fell below your expectation: All in all it was a pretty good show, nothing really stands out as poor.
How would you improve the negative comments (if any): No reason to write anything here as I don't believe any of the feedback I have was particularly bad.
Overall Show Grade: B, Solid show, good not great.
