also the stage being reversed annoyed me all night for some reason [8D]
It felt like I was watching RAW in a mirror image or something... Messed with my head slightly!
In regards to the trade...
Just when I thought SmackDown! couldn't get any better, they get The Hart Dynasty and Matt Hardy. Great promotion for Dynasty, and I'm so glad Hardy escaped RAW. Hopefully Natalya gets some matches with Melina, those two should be able to work some great bouts together. Same goes with Gail Kim and Beth Phoenix over on RAW.
I was surprised to see Bourne on RAW, and I hope it works out for the guy... Fully expected Kendrick to go to ECW. Maybe Bourne and Kendrick will have a feud on RAW? Or am I in dreamland here?
Not surprised to see Benjamin go, to be honest. He's been pretty directionless over on SmackDown!. Hopefully he'll get a program with Christian, they'd be able to work some magic together.
It's sad for the new talent to lose Finlay over on ECW, but they do get Regal who would be a great guy to learn from, I think. Plus, that means we now have 3 English wrestlers on ECW - Regal, Katie Lea and Paul Burchill... British faction, anyone? I can dream!
