Last night, we attended the live broadcast of ECW, followed up by tapings for Superstars and Smackdown.
As it was the first time I had been to a Smackdown taping (as opposed to a live show), it was interesting to see how they did things differently.
They were pretty consistent with shooting different angles and extended reactions before and after matches. They also weren’t afraid to redo a move if they screwed up during a match. Now I get what JR is saying when he talks about the different feel he gets in doing Smackdown play by play as compared to his days on Raw… It will be interesting to see how they handle the shots in the editing room and how the final product appears on Friday night.
After the final bell rang, they managed to keep our attention, even as the event dragged on past the four hour mark.
An appearance by The Undertaker sure didn’t hurt things, and DX was as entertaining as ever, even though it was for nobody’s entertainment but those of us in the arena at that time.
I must say, I am getting more and more excited for WM26 here in the Valley of the Sun!!!
