I'll definitely say. The wrestling was actually great, matches were suspenseful and weren't rushed, full of surprises, not too predictable, crowd was into it - just an overall fun and exciting show. Makes me want to start watching every week again.

I really enjoyed the show which is a relief considering the build up was awful.

Only a few minor things bothered me.

Wyatt and Undertaker had to make their entrances in daylight which lessened them I think. In fact I think the whole show was lessened a bit by being outdoors but not by much.

Cena wins

Sting match and US title match probably should've switched places on the card

Battle Royal on the pre show, lame

However, there were a lot more DUUUUDESICK moments like that NUTSO RKO, the Superplex from the ladder, Wyatt's entrance and Undertaker's return, the finale, etc.

For as bad as the build was, it was a really good show. How in the fuck does one get the idea to vault off of Randy Orton's head to set himself up for the rko? I need to see that again. Like, if he vaulted off his shoulder yeah I could see it being practiced to the point of a being a comfortable spot to perform, but it sure looked like he jumped onto his head and then vaulted! That was so surreal. And in the ladder match, they dropped a subtle clue that Rollins would cash by having Ambrose incapacitated by falling through the ladder. Ambrose's MO was to always be there to stop Rollins from cashing, and well, he can't do that if he's injured. Considering how poorly Reigns has been received, I think most people expected the cash-in, but it's good to see them covering all the bases on the storylines. Everyone goes home happy: Brass gets Reigns to look strong in defeat while also warding off a fan riot, Brock remains a terrifying force who did not get pinned, Rollins get his time to shine.

They even got a good match out of The Bella Twins. Took them eight years to go from abysmal to "eh, ok". At least Nikki having more of a powerhouse moveset seems to suit her pretty well. I'm still hoping they resign Kia Stevens while Nikki is champion so they can tie up that loose end in a meaningful context. Seeing Alundra Blaze at the HOF was a really cool speech too. I knew she drove monster trucks, but I never knew she won any events, so that was a really cool aside! I was so glad to hear her trash lingerie gimmick matches and give thanks to her time with the AJPW women.

Bray Taker was ok, but the match with Punk was much better in comparison. I didn't expect anything too fancy. I'll probably watch again tomorrow, I was delightfully surprised. Cena pulled a springboard stunner out of his ass too! Just a twinge salty that Cena beat him and not a new star, but I ain't even that mad, Rusev drove a fucking tank and continued to be absolutely baller as fuck.

Solid show. More style than substance, not a whole lot of actual quality wrestling going on, but it was a fun night regardless.

Fatal Four-Way tag match was a very bland affair. We've seen it a million times already. Decent enough action in the ring, and the right team won. Forgettable.

Battle Royal was okay. Would have liked Itami to do more, and Big Show did not need the win at all, but the Miz and Mizdow stuff was good. Just wish they'd given him the win.

Ladder Match was a huge let down, didn't do anything for me at all. Couple of nice spots, but that's all. Will be interesting to see what they do now that the "midcard" titles are on two of their biggest stars.

Orton vs Rollins was match of the night, and the only great in-ring work on the show. Excellent match, and that fucking finish was magical.

HHH vs Sting was a glorious trainwreck. Hilariously stupid from start to finish, it was the best thing they could have done with it. I'll take Russo levels of run ins over watching these guys actually wrestle any day. HHH's entrance was preposterously bad, too, and I loved every second of it.

Diva's match was a pissbreak, as expected. Still doing nothing with the division, and I dread the day the likes of Sasha Banks have to leave NXT to take part in this utter tripe.

Cena vs Rusev was a nice spectacle with some good in ring work to back it up. Cena not coming out riding a giant robotic eagle or dressed like Apollo Creed in Rocky IV mean this gets a 0/10 from me, though.

Undertaker vs Wyatt was dull. Don't think it did Wyatt any favours, Undertaker didn't feel like all that much of an attraction, and the match itself was boring and lifeless.

Main event made the best of a bad situation. Roman looked cool as fuck laughing as Brock beat the shit out of him, and legitimised himself by not stinking up the place in his first real big match. Brock still looks like an unstoppable monster and I have no idea how they're going to make him losing look in the slightest bit believable in the future, Roman looks strong but it feels organic, rather than forced as it would have had he pulled a Cena and just scored a quick win after being beaten on for the whole thing, and Rollins looks like the total weasel he's supposed to. Perfect.

Great event and when Cena and Bryan won the titles I knew something was happening in the main event.

Sting-HHH was great for all the run ins even if Sting lost.

Overall a 8.5/10 for me as the other matches were very good and the entrances were over the top that it was campy.


Well we were dumb enough to think it was gonna happen.

There will be a rematch soon. Sting will get his revenge.

AJ Lee leaves the WWE and retires from wrestling.

Would anyone like to recap the Raw after Wrestlemania for me, by the way?

Saw that. Curious if she left because of pressure regarding the status of her husband or if it was due to her wanting to have kids. Hell, she might actually have been forced to retire due to legit injuries.

She was one of the Divas that was not half bad. Maybe she will go to TNA?

There was a rowdy crowd in the Smackdown UK taping, three fans managed to invade the ring.

"Before the main event started, there was some notable crowd trouble. Three fans jumped the ringside and proceeded to do some spots in the ring. One fan hit the other with a Rock bottom. They were quickly tackled by security, who were said to be rough in manhandling them out."

Video.
