Raw was good show, great ending but unlike the Cena v Edge story line where the mic work and in ring work has taken the lead, which I think is a good thing. The RKO and Legacy vs HHH storyline is poor because I'd rather see HHH vs legacy a few times rather than this last ten mins showdown each week. Elsewhere the rest of the show was good but I rather see Regal in the MitB than Punk. I don't want Punk to win the WWE or World title because WWE took the mickey last time. Basically my take on Smackdown mostly was that Kozlov did exactly what was need to beat Taker without giving too much away if the match went to Wrestlemania. Also WWE missed a great opportunity to finally unite the Tag titles and reduce the number of titles in WWE and on top of that WWE could have removed Carlito and Primo from the title picture. I don't rate them as a team and I think the Miz and Morrison are the best tag team in the WWE and need to be given the titles. Personally I think WWE should give Chavo or MVP the US title and put Shelton in the MitB match. Along with Tommy Dreamer. Hopefully if that was to happen Dreamer could win the match and win the ECW title and stay on the show cause otherwise Dreamer is going to go and then ECW gonna be left with Swagger and Christian and that's about it. Just a closing point why was Manu released when Kizarny was allowed to stay I mean I know who I would rather have in WWE.
Now there is no fact that after this week's WWE programming that we are full steam ahead for Wrestlemania 25. On Raw we saw Randy Orton and his Legacy run from Triple H and his sledgehammer all around the arena and then make a quick get away. Hunter's actions on Monday Night and at this time of year (not forgetting Orton has Championship match at WM25) you would have to be stupid to not see this match happening in Texas. It was interesting how after the McMahon situation they have got Randy on the path he should have been anyway, on the Road to Wrestlemania. Also on Raw we could have seen a better match between Shawn Michaels and JBL with a match with the Undertaker at Wrestlemania up for grabs. Somehow, I see that JBL hasn't really now got anywhere to go now, but really thought that he would be a part of the McMahon "Bastard" Storyline. And now Shawn's path to a match at WM, will go through Vlamdir Kozlov and this is where I fell strange, will they really let Kozlov be beat, but if he does win, WWE would have missed one of the biggest optunities in 25 years. On ECW, Christian lost, Tommy won, lets move on. Smackdown was one of the best Smackdown's in ages and it will be interesting to see what Ratings it gets in the US. Another thing that shows that maybe Kozlov will lose on Monday Night is that Kozlov and 'Taker went at it on Friday with Kozlov still getting away with his undefeated steak. Good match in all but did finish a bit too early with the slam off the top rope not really looking like enough to beat the Undertaker, or was it just me? The US Title scene is hotting up with Shelton Benjamin, MVP and Chavo Guerro. On Friday we saw Chavo steal one from Shelton (with Chavo acting as Face) in an alright match, and this should lead to a good match in the feature and maybe at Wrestlemania (but why would WWE give up the chance to get Shelton Benjamin in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match). I'm somehow also fell better now that Chavo isn't so messed up with all the rubbish happening around Vickie and Edge (even though he went up against Cena on Monday Night as Family), at least he's getting some more rope to get into a good feud. Miz and Morrison where also going to try and become the Undisputed Tag Champions in WWE, by winning Carlito and Primo's WWE Tag Team Championship. This was a good match and all in all these four work well together, I wouldn't be suprised if there is a re-match and Miz and Morrison actually win, because they are the best Tag Team in WWE right-now, fighting on every brand (less and less on there actual brand, ECW), if they did win it would also be another thing to feed their ego's as it would be their second WWE Tag Team Championship regin. John Cena and Big Show finished of what was a great night with the match fo the night, these two do have history and Big Show showed how if anything he could be the 3rd part of a Triple Threat for the World Heavyweight Championship. Everything happened in this match including a Wrestlemania deja vu momment with Cena Attitude Adjusting Show (it just doesn't sound the same, does it). But you knew that Edge would get in on the match in some way, but what on earth was that, Tazz said to JR on commentry (after JR over-reacted a bit) that he never did anything, but it was the opening that Show needed (by the way, how did the Big Show get up that quick after the FU) to get the knockout punch and chokeslam, to end Smackdown "clean" for the first time in ages. (And what the fuck is that Cena thing, it's like a double "30" of MVP's "305", what is "Word Life" not PG)
