Random Wrestling Reviews (RWR) – ECW September 23, 2008.

To refresh:

The Miz and John Morrison insult the new Superstar initiative.

Finlay beats Bam Neely.

Maryse pins Michelle McCool.

Mike Knox pins Chase Stevens.  After the match, Tommy Dreamer and Jack Swagger get involved.

The Miz vs. John Morrison ends in a no contest.  Ricky Ortiz runs out and hits a Big O on both men.

Opinions:

Jim Ross announced this episode, along with Matt Striker and this is exactly what Striker needs to get even better.  It’s been no secret that in my opinion, Striker is the best announcer in WWE.

Ricky Ortiz is over, and I have no idea why.  He’s goofy, he’s not that great a wrestler, he is apparently a ladies man, and I love every minute he’s on TV.  It’s the most ridiculous gimmick right now, and for some reason it works.

Why do Hornswoggle and Finlay run around the ring with small children?  ‘Swoggle is an adult, not a child.  He wants to go out, drink, find a woman, and have a good time.  Not be chased by kindergarten kids.

Maryse vs. Michelle McCool is the best rivalry going right now.  Every match these two women have, they improve.  Their chemistry is outstanding, and they even progress a storyline within their bouts.  Also, the hair flip DDT is one of the best finishing moves in years.  Sure its just a DDT, but the sexy flip adds so much personality to the move.

Did I hear Jim Ross say that Mike Knox will be ECW Champion in 2008?  I’ll give him 2009, but ’08 is almost over.  Knox has improved so much, and his new brawler style/look reminds me of Bruiser Brody and Steve Williams.  Knox could be the future, which is amazing when one things of his debut during which all he had was Kelly Kelly.

Miz and Morrison are future main eventers.  I’m talking WrestleMania level main events.  They are the best tag team in wrestling today, so good they should have an official tag team name with the word “Express” in it.  That’s right, as good as the Midnight Express or Rock and Roll Express.  Now if only they had someone as good to feud with, besides each other.
