got to see a solid ass whipping and Punk worked just heek enough to create some tension. good stuff.

this had its moments, but it was definitely full of fuckery, with tables very early, a good brothers appearance, and multiple Callis spots that buried the ref. this is not my flavor of main event title match.

i liked this. solid grappling, statlander has a new layer of polish, very good here-to-there title match.

this was two thumbs way up until the finish. the ref is fucking with the ring when he should be counting is bad enough, but if hes gonna throw his body in harms way to protect Miro then he needs to eat steel. it could have ended with a Kingston win at one point that would have been credible and blown the roof off. great match with a flat finish. still overall enjoyable but i dont want ref heat at all. Eddie getting to the ropes is a low key contender for moment on the night.

whatever, Bucks lost. they pissed on the idea of the cage, so there was that. i guess that will last in my mind but for the wrong reasons.

>this will at least be entertaining. Ruby Soho is obviously

i was into this VERY much. they ladies i liked had fun high spots and the ones that should have kicked ass did kick ass. love Ruby's selling. one of the best battle royales they've done.

this was a good cold match, and im not hating the idea of occupying Jon Moxley with NJPW one offs for the next 6 months.

i was ready to eat my words and talk about how much i liked this right up until the finish, a disturbing trend in an otherwise strong show.

i was sufficiently let up.

heavily produced AV packages for both. Danielson's music lends itself well to the situation but it seems too Vaudeville to have so much gaga ready for them right off the bat.

overall tho good stuff with good commentary. finishes left some things to be desired.
