not complaining, but Alexa Bliss’ shorts are getting close to non-existent.

Can anyone fill me in on why they continue to show the Street Profits, week in and week out, doing backstage segments, pretty much recapping what's been going on already and that's it?

Lack of writing talent. I think Vince saw they were popular in NXT and they were part of what he was throwing against the wall to see what sticks in effort to improve ratings.

Decent show. Highlight for me was The Fiends entrance. Can't believe the announcers never mentioned the Bray head light. That thing was creepy as hell. So, KO wins against Shane, now what? I am not sure what angle they are going for there. KO would have had to quit if he lost and now that he beat Shane, he has to, what? Keep being rich? Keep doing that best in the world crap?

I even liked the Lesnar/Rollins match. Brock swinging Rollins around by his bandages was a sight.

what the other 2 guys still posting in here think?

Besides the bray entrance and the brock match I did not like any of it. Weird card that didn't offer anything unique IMO.
Go ahead, make my millennium.

I thought it was alright. I did dig Bray's new theme song/remix. None of the matches really stood out to me. As for the Shane thing, they'll keep him off TV for who knows how long (Survivor Series, Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania?). I just hope they quit with that whole "best in the world" crap. Man did I get tired of hearing that and especially the announcers having to introduce him that way. What a complete waste of time!

NXT wasn't as impressive as I was hoping (except the Cole/Gargano match). Still a better show overall IMO than SummerSlam.

Any reason for the tv-14 rating?

Not that I saw or heard on the broadcast.

So NXT is moving to the USA Network to compete with AEW now. Heard 205 Live might move from the Network and become part of the show to help fill the 2 hour time slot.

Anybody else see Orton tell that kid screaming like a little girl to shut up?

LOL, I missed that, but I'm loving Orton right now. The whole "stupid" thing is kinda weird and I hate that his catch phrase is "the 3 most destructive letters...," but I'm really enjoying his work and the story line in general.

I did, however, hear Bailey scream a spot at Lacey Evans midmatch. "ARMBAR!"
