Yep

I liked imperium match
Can't stand rousey fighting style, all she does is grapple, she never leaves the ground just submissions.(This match had about 3 or 4 botches)
Bianca did good, Bailey had 3 or 4 botches(you are only good in wrestling as your opponent)
Edge match was decent but went too long
"Fight pit" match was the lowlight, no hype, we had seen this match up 3 times already, it was rushed because all other matches ran long, don't care to see Riddle VS Rollins or a fight pit match ever again.
Strap match was horrible, did not like it at all, not a fan of cross or his wrestling style or "strap matches" in general.

This felt like heel city and you could tell HHH was directing it all. Maybe a little more balance eh HHH? Not everyone needs to be stomped out.

Women's division is hurting because they are missing so much A+ talent

Flair = out
Becky = out
Banks = suspended
Naomi = suspended
Ria Rhipley = not currently wrestling

So that leaves us the EST and the B/C team and whomever they decide to bring up from NXT.

Yeah Imperium vs Brutes was a damn good opener, and would have served as a better main event than the fight pit.

As for the fight pit, I kept waiting for DC to get involved in the match since they emphasized how much he was telling Rollins and Riddle, "Hey, don't touch me, or I'll fuck you up." Probably would have been a better finish than Riddle breaking his ass with a stupid high risk move. I did laugh at them saying this was Riddle's match because the last time he was in it, he got beat by Timothy Thatcher.

Strap match was mediocre as hell. Absolutely no point of building Kross back up as this force of destruction only to have him win via pepper spray from his valet. Being a chickenshit heel does not work for his character, and H should have known better.

Women's division got fucked over by shitty booking full stop. Bianca and Rousey are the Cena and Reigns of their divisions now. At least Rousey remembered she was a heel by yelling her title win wasn't for the fans, but for her. Rhea has been demoted to "Mind games specialist" aka "Dom's virginity taker." They bring back Candace LeRae and immediately have her lose her second match. They bring back Zelina......to manage a stable that already had a female manager. Nikki ASH hasn't been seen since she ripped her mask off a month ago. Damage CTRL at least had some good momentum, but they squashed that with Bianca demolishing the entire group and retaining her title. Sasha is probably never coming back, and honestly, I haven't cared for Naomi since her heel run. Flair coming back wouldn't be exciting either. Same promos, same Charlotte matches. Same QUEEEEEEEEEEN CITY intro every. god. damn. time.

I will give it to Michael Cole, though. That dude fucking turned UP for his job tonight. He was channeling Attitude Era JR when yelling about Dominick beating up Rey and pleading for Edge to just say I quit.

Speaking of Crown Jewel, the last time I talked about it with a buddy, I mentioned it would be hilarious if Goldberg wound up defeating The Fiend for the belt because it would neuter the entire full time roster who couldn't even come close.

And then I sent him a text about it with HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I'm getting the same thoughts about Logan Paul, and that legit worries the shit out of me. :rofl:

Theory is going to show up at some point with the MITB briefcase and fuck everything up.

I guess they could "technically" let the MITB expire after 12 months will see if they let that happen.

IIRC, they kinda did that with Dolph Ziggler. I think they flat out forgot about the year thing and he cashed it in the next Raw after Mania when it should have been expired. :rofl:

Plus they could always go the Mr. Kennedy/Otis way and have them lose it via match.

RAW tonight. I'll bet the DX thing is going to be cringe. Especially with no Billy Gunn there. They're just too old now.

Yea no good PPV's until rumble this is WWE's "offseason" all the storylines are resetting for Rumble/WM leadups.

Always happens after summer slam and you can tell because there are more new faces coming in every week.
