I took a four day weekend last week from any kind of reviews (wrestling and book) because it was Hallowe'en. With that said...
We open Reaction with Matt Morgan the evil druid, having just pinned Bishoff and signing a contract to be in the ppv this weekend against Jeff Hardy. Interesting switch up there and I have to say not a bad move at all.
Cut to camera 1, Jeff Hardy giving us an English lesson of sorts with what he believes Immortal stands for.
Cut to camera 2, Bishoff telling us why he fired a ref earlier in the night.
Cut to camera 3, Matt Morgan telling us why he has turned on Fortune.
Cut to camera 4, Jeff Jarrett talks about how he did not sell out.
Cut to camera 5, Samoa Joe talked about not having any true friends in the company.
Cut to camera 1, more with Hardy discussing Jeff Jarrett and his part in the latest twist. One thing, do we really need to see Hardy licking the belt all the time? No no we do not. Icky.
Cut to camera 6, Rhino talking about the fact that at the ppv this weekend, someone in their group will get fired if they loose.
Cut to camera 7, Stevie Richards adding to the pot about how they all know it's coming.
Cut to camera 8, Raven giving his take on this issue as well, and might I add looking as only Raven can look.
Cut to camera 9, Tommy Dreamer adding his take on this EV2/RVD issue.
Cut to camera 10 Full Shot of EV2 (everything has been in medium close ups to this point... sorry I miss working in tv) talking about the issue, tossing out questions the way the fans do when hanging in forums. Which was a cool.
Cut to camera 11, Douglas Williams and Kazarian talking about the match they had earlier in the night, against each other. Bit of mess dripping into Fortune, will Williams be the next out of the gang? and by the by Flair on Impact earlier had called Williams ugly... shame on you! Douglas Williams is a million times sexier then you.
Cut to camera 12, Pope talking about his new feud with Abyss. I do like the demon/saint theory that's always an interesting way to roll even when it's just sort of metaphorically being used for a chat.
Cut to camera 13, Abyss with his reply to Pope's challenge about a lumber jack match at the ppv. A lumber jack match that will contain members of the crowd if I understand proper? Should be interesting.
Cut to camera 14, Chris Sabin talking about their match against the Team 3D at the ppv, the retirement match. Zoom out to see Alex Shelley who made the comment about how Team 3D is the last of a dying breed as far as great teams go.
Cut to camera 15, and we get Team 3D's take on their choice to ask the MMG for this match.
Cut back to camera 14, Sabin again giving respect to Team 3D,
I still would like to know what happens to the belts if 3D win; will new belts be issued for the MMG? Will a tournament be held? Cause if the MMG loose to Team 3D and they retire, then wouldn't Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin still actually be the champs or just the number one contenders? See this is too much for my zombie brain to compute.
The last few minutes of the show was a montage of snips from everything.
I have to say, it's good to see someone finally listened to the Fans as far as the Spike site goes, as the MMG blog, Impact and Reaction were all up on time this week. Huge thanks for that.
No, I did not do a review for Impact this week because I was disappointed by this week's Impact. I thought it sucked. Reaction however, I was very impressed with.
This week's episode of Reaction gets a B+
