News On Big Show/Taker Finish, Scrapped PPV Ideas

Nick Paglino

It’s being reported that creative decided to go with the knockout finish to the Big Show/Taker match in an effort to inject a more realistic edge into their match. They were borrowing a page from an MMA bout, however they were not entirely pleased with the result. As evidenced by the live crowd last night, the fans were left more confused by the finish than they were excited. The exposed turnbuckle spot did not have the effect creative wanted.

It’s also being reported that several comedy bits were scrapped from last night’s PPV in order to devote more time to the two championship main events. We may see some of these bits on Raw tonight.
