Chaos Review - Now with extra honesty
Starting the show was Team Chaos as opposed to the Champ could be seen as contentious. It could be seen that the title is taking a back seat at the moment which isn’t always a bad thing. My opinion is that I would prefer Team Chaos to be ending shows however, not starting them.
Aside from that it was a good combined promo, Kyojin got us off to a solid start and Chamberlain continued well. Wells was decent but am still not enthralled by the King gimmick, what is he the king of anyway? Roids apparently if potty mouth Blue can be believed. Lot of emotion from Blue, borderline too much but he still contributed the best part to the promo.
Blue getting the win missed a trick. Another loss creates more tension with Team Chaos. Unadventurous booking in my opinion but not exactly a disaster.
Miss Murder and Red Queen, truthfully I don’t like their names. I don’t see a gimmick either, and we all know I love gimmicks. I didn’t feel that the promo had enough character for my tastes.
Honest opinion on the match? I’ve read it all before. Just seems that most matches are in the same carbon copy format as the last one. I’m not going to sit here and tell you it was bad writing, it was good, very good, but the format is stale. Could be an idea to try and freshen up the way matches are written, I’ll see if I can come up with a couple of ideas.
Can I just point how strange I think it is to have so many female wrestlers written by dudes? I dropped mine for this reason, I couldn’t relate to it in any way. Anyway Te’Yanna was ok. The womens division isn’t capturing my attention at the moment.
I enjoyed Matt Blacks promo, it was written quite well. Decent character considering the lack of a distinguishable gimmick, but you do need to balance the gimmicks out with ‘normal’ people.
Now The Nest actually is an interesting prospect with three fairly diverse characters coming together for a common goal. Good promo, looking forward to more.
Decent match as always, but still lacking a special hook to it. I’d be careful with the post-match beat downs too otherwise they’ll become a cliché.
Good stuff from Slayde and Ace Note. Looking forward to an interesting feud with the Nest. I feel Ace Note should be looking at getting a title shot there.
I was expecting a long match, as you would expect with a main event, but this dragged a little too much for my lazy tastes. Not just because of the name Nest, or the fact that a Hawk is a bird, but there was an element of ‘Crow’ Sting to Hawk up in the rafters. Bit of Raven there too. Birds.
Mr Blood killed his half of our promo. Fact, I pay so little attention to my own storylines that initially I thought Adonis was feuding with Mr Black. Don’t be a Torph.
Overall Satisfaction: Good effort, always appreciated. Thought the writing was good but didn’t blow my mind. Show could be made a little slicker with a new writing format for matches I think. B+
