Agreed. I wish The Miz got the win over Kurt though. I feel like that could have done more to advance story on Raw, but whatever.
AJ/Finn was great.
yup! I got way too excited about the Too Sweet

The way they have been bringing up NXT stars (Nakamura, Roode, Asuka) has been weird to me.
The Drifter ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssucks.
I kinda love him.

Elias' line last night (paraphrasing) "because you are all rude, I now have to start again" was great. best cheap heat since Vickie's EXCUSE ME.

Emma/Asuka was awesome, glad it wasn't a squash. AJ/Finn was fine, I don't think it'll stand the test of time though. Main was really weird, but I was OK with it.

That ppv was a travesty. AJ Finn was good but the most frustrating thing about that main event was that if Roman was there it would have been the same match. Also I know kayfabe is dead and all but they essentially destroyed two of their top monster heels in Bruan and Kane.

it's a shame we will only be getting one week of promos from Heyman/Brock and AJ about each other. would like that to develop into something more.

Not even necessary. This is a dream match.

Just waiting for the "Jinder Mahal has been suspended 30 days for violating the WWE Wellness Program" announcement now.

Timing seems super weird, but I'm all for it.

I'm very surprised but glad AJ won it. Like others have said it'll be a better match with Brock. And I agree, a bigger build would have been appreciated. The timing is weird. Plus Ambrose and Rollins dropped the belts on Raw to The Bar. Some of the matches at Survivor Series don't make sense. A heel team (The Bar) vs. a heel team (The Usos)? A heel champion (Alexa Bliss) vs a heel champion (Natalya)? I get the whole champion vs champion angle, but usually they do a face vs a heel ala AJ/Brock as opposed to Jinder/Brock.

really can't look at this PPV as "Good vs. Bad". they're building it for Red vs. Blue. simple as that.

appreciate the matches at hand and you're getting the best of both brands going head to head.

I anticipate the Mens 5v5 match to be great, but if we have a motivated Brock - that match will steal the show no doubt.

I don’t watch wrestling anymore so haven’t checked this thread so may be a repeat but there is a great 30for30 on ESPN about Ric Flair. It’s called Nature Boy.

You are absolutely correct! They did a very good job with it. I would like to see this be the start of other wrestling 30 For 30's, but I'm not holding my breath.
