1) This violin player doesn't appear to know the theme song.

2) Is there ANY booking decision to make other than a Nakamura title win? I imagine an Osama Bin Laden tribute video would go over better than Mahal retaining tonight.

Now that the Hindi announce team has been acknowledged, they are done.

Wow......just wow.

This is by far the worst PPV of the year both in terms of match quality and booking.

Vince needs to share what he's smoking. The crowd is in shock worse than the Orton loss.

I don't care who wins the main event. I'm only watching this because my kid has his friends over.

I understood the decision to put it on Mahal. It was something new and unexpected so he gave it a shot. Unfortunately, it hasn't worked. He has booked to be a coward who can't do anything without interference and it happens every single match. Think nWo 1997. It's time to move on.

I think the crowd will accept any outcome but Roman winning. Joe is probably the crowd favorite.

This needs to be Okada/Omega 3 to prevent the crowd from starting fires.

Spotfest mode is working.  It'll send him home happy.

Vince smartened up. Lesnar pinning Reigns was perfect. I expected Joe to take the loss.

Very good match, probably the best booking call as long as they aren't just doing this for Lesnar/Reigns at Mania and having the title off the show for another year.

He's the same violin player since he began in NXT during SS weekend last year.

Loved the main event.  Strowman is over huge.  I wonder when we will get Brock vs. Strowman. 

I thought the show was paced well, which was a problem with the two long shows last year (Mania and SummerSlam).

Are they going to do another Superstar shakeup soon?  Having a hard time seeing how they will keep both shows fresh with the same roster for another 7 months.

I think Mahal retaining ruined the show.  It wasn't a bad show.  Nakamura is red hot.  He was there. I was watching Mahal, he doesn't wrestlers like a champ.  He doesn't have many key moves except his finisher.  He's unrelatable.  They haven't done justice to his character.


Orton got the pop off the night I believe.


Lesnar is a hero. 


Natalya is past her prime and I am a huge fan of hers.

Main Event had the proper finish.

No reason for anyone from New Japan to come over anytime soon.

Mahal is garbage. He sucks.


Not sure Nakamura is over so much as his entrance is over because it lets worthless wrestling fans feel like they are part of the show with their sing along.


Finn Balor is pretty good. I like the Damon Kane character. That's what it sounds like Mush Mouth Cole is saying.


Bray Wyatt may as well go back to being Husky Harris at this point. Someone should tell the idiot bookers that winning matters.


Alexa Bliss is really good. She is always trying to fight. Her mannerisms and facial expressions are great.


Sasha is ok in the ring. Really good at finisher setups. She still sucks on the mic.


Dug the main event. It made Joe and Roman looks weak, though.


Fucking Emma is so sexy I need to pregnancy test myself after I see her. I'm watching Raw. Nia Jax is aight. I would rough her up.


Big Case and Enzo are both shit. Enzo is a good talker, but he's worthless in the ring. Cass won't stop smiling.


Fatty Steen did great. AJ Styles is the best wrestler I've ever seen in my life.


The Usos and New Day are having some of the best tag matches on PPV I've seen in a long, long time.


Dean Ambrose looks like that sissy fighter from Mad TV. Seth Rollins is really charasmatic. Sheamus and Cesaro are a really good team.


I'm going to need Broken Matt Hardy pretty soon.


I skipped Orton vs Rusev because I wanted Rusev to win. I'm almost positive he lost.


Natty seems like a great person. But she still does the shittiest fucking Sharpshooter imaginable.

Congrats to Bobby Roode on his move to Smackdown.   Hopefully his size and demeanor won't hold him back.
