Best Match: Main Event
Best Promo: Tough one...if i didn't pick one of mine, i'd go with the tag team promo. If i went with one I was involved in, i'd go Aries/Jericho, as I thought Tommy did a great job
Best Piece of Booking: THe ending. Upon learning of the main event i was wondering who would walk away the winner. I'm glad it was undecided and just ended in case. Throws the sense of "no one knows how GAB is going to go" instead of someone getting momentum going into the PPV
Best Debut *when applicable*: NA
Any Piece of Booking You Didn't Like: Ryback/Golderg. Eddie makes a good point i think. When i learned Goldberg was on the heel team I was like "wait....Goldberg isn't a heel..what?" I think it would have been better to include two different people like Sandow and Hogan, or Black and Drew.
Any Matches and/or Promos That Could've Been Improved: No promos or matches. You guys did a great job with matches this week.
Any Other Positives: All around great show. All of the matches and promos were really good.
Any Other Constructive Criticism: None
Overall Show Grade: A, best Raw in a long time
So I'm about to read Raw which I'm excited about.. Thanks for the feedback so far guys :)
As for the Ryback/Goldberg feud it's simply which ever way you would look at it, we have played them both as themselves with this personal feud being about who comes out on top. I think Tyndall summed it up well.
Goldberg as a heel would never work... look what happened when Goldberg aligned himself with Vince Russo and The New Blood faction, he didn't last long at that. I think Ryback is the same way.
I will be posting some Nitro today. How much depends on when I get promos from:
I don't expect one today, and the deadline tomorrow's so there's no rush, but I will be re-arranging at least one of these promos so you can get more show tonight.
Loved the Jericho/Aries promo, top notch from two of the best IMO. Loved that Aries talked about past winners and then the response from Jericho was spot on.
I liked the promo's from Trish and Beth and I'm pleased with how successful the Road To Triumph has been so far.
The tag team promo was quality! I'm a little biased but I think it was very well done from everyone involved.
Another good Kelly promo, Bear has done awesome developing her into this super bitch.
Real shame about the Kane promo but we understand and hope you feel better soon TTC.. if anyone has any issues with promo's or a problem. then please speak to us as early as you can so we can help.
Loved the Rhodes/Sheamus promo too! Awesome job guys, Eddie Kudos to you for making me think twice if you were actually American Haha! That really does say how well you have done with Rhodes. As for Vand, since the first moment he joined this fed he's been top notch and has always delivered with Sheamus.
Good promo from Punk and it showed his honor once again with the way he handled the promo, I'm starting to Dig this new gimmick.
Good promo from Hulk & Sandow, really enjoying this feud and both guys are doing really well, keep it up lads.
Well done promo from Jelly & Dave with Goldberg/Ryback. I imagine it's pretty hard to write for these guys but I think you guys have done well and it's now time to see them fight!!
Really good main event G! :) Loved the chaos ending and the show has set up things really well for GAB. Looking forward to Nitro now and hopefully it continues the momentum!
