What’s up wrestling fans? I’m back with another edition of the Pay-Per-Review, this time taking a look at WWE’s debut, Smackdown vs Raw themed "Bragging Rights" PPV. Last night’s show was a bag of mixed emotions for me, as I thought all of the wrestling was solid, and the show was capped off by a phenomenal Iron Man Match that is surely a match of the year candidate. That said, however, the biggest issue this PPV suffered from was that WWE tried to cram what should have been a 3-4 month build into a mere 3 weeks. The entire Smackdown vs Raw concept was thrown together so quickly that there was barely any time for WWE to draw the fans into caring whether or not Smackdown or Raw won the event.
