    I think it's pretty unanimous from the quality of the matches at Unforgiven that it's a bad concept. With the exception of the Royal Rumble, matches with more than four people in it are hardly ever any good. Unless they were to do just one and give it way more time, like 40 minutes, and span the entrances out more, like every 10 minutes, I find it hard to see how they could get a good match out of it.


    And I'm fairly sure Jeff and Kendrick aren't former champions now>_>

    I personally don't like it. The whole one guy entering every few minutes deal just doesn't really work for me unless its the Royal Rumble. I also think it makes the titles look cheap with all the pinfalls going on. Guys in title matches should have 20 minute matches with noone getting pinned. These matches have potential to be entertaining but they waste so much talent with 5 men in the match. This amount of main event or upper midcard talent is poorly used in a match which isn't even that impressive. At least Elimination Chamber has an aura about it. 3 Scramble matches on one card is a joke so hopefully it doesn't become an Unforgiven tradition.

    Another thing... and this REALLY pisses me off.

    Triple H was put over by JR as being a 13 time World Champion, which means that the title changes in the match ACTUALLY count as reigns. How cheap can you make the title look?
    No need to be pissed off, it was simply JR's fault. HHH isn't a 13 world champ if he retained, lol. On WWE website, they aren't counting it


    Yes, I have a GIF of two women kissing.
    Yes, it's hot. Yes it's Megan Fox kissing another woman from Jennifer's Body. Yes, it's hot... owait, I already said that. Yes, I'm aware this makes me sound like a total lesbian. But this scene? UNF.

    Its a pretty good concept, though I think it show be WM exclusive like MITB. WWE should use it on their mid card championships rather the main event championships though. I'd prefer actual build up and rivalries for the main championships, rather than TNA tournament style build ups. Three matches in one night is also blah.

    I like the concept, 3 in one show is pushing it and I think having it as a mid-card stip. could be a better idea too.

    Like others said, it wouldn't have been as bad if it was only one match. If they do this kind of thing at every Unforgiven, then I say it's a bad concept. But honestly, I can't see them ever doing a scramble again. It just seems like one of those random ideas thrown in there, because they had nothing else.

    I think it worked well, but don't do it again. Just have maybe one next year with a U.S. Title on the line, because ending the show with a big title in a match with that type of limit is sort of a non-breath-taking ending to a show. In this case it wasn't with Jericho, but the odds of that are low to happen again.

    I agree. I think it should only be used for the two mid-card titles and not the main titles. I too would rather see build up and rivalries between two or three people for the main titles instead of just five people all at once. I don't like how they had people enter at intervals of five minutes. I just would rather have everyone enter at once and proceed with the match from that point on like a regular match would be contested. Hopefully they don't really ever do it again for the main titles. I personally, would like to see it done for the United States Championship. Imagine what a great match that could possibly be.

    Shelton Benjamin (c) vs The Brian Kendrick vs MVP vs Mr.Kennedy vs Gregory Helms. That would be a badass match, I think.

    It's a great concept and it all depends who you put in it.

    With RAW, we weren't guaranteed a good match, because you had inconsistent performers in there.

    With ECW, you had the young guys mixed with the veterans, so that worked.... and it was surprisngly good. It gave a chance for guy who deserved a win... a win without going over the ECW champ making both Mark and Matt look good.

    Smackdown was sweet because it gave a mid carder guy in Brian Kendrick a way to climb on the ladder and look good, so it helped elevate him. Without the Scramble, people wouldn't take him so serious... but he is now. Everything they did just clicked perfectly - especially the ending teasing the feud that was to come.


    So yes.... it's a good concept. It just depends on: who's in it, build-up between them leading up to it and how the ending is booked.

    Yes, it's hot. Yes it's Megan Fox kissing another woman from Jennifer's Body. Yes, it's hot... owait, I already said that. Yes, I'm aware this makes me sound like a total lesbian. But this scene? UNF.

    It's an alright concept but I would rather have the King of the Ring come back as a PPV and just have this PPV and a couple others scrapped.
