WWE films EVERYTHING. They even film house shows. They've always done that, first as an idea towards potential video release (if you're my age, you remember the old Coliseum Home Video releases, which were usually culled from house show matches with commentary dubbed over them), and now in the age of the network it's more important then ever to have all of their content archived somewhere and somehow.

Sami Zayn's new theme is incredible. So glad they've changed it, old one was terrible.

NXT Takeover was way better than it had any right to be. Thought the card looked very average, but it was great.

Zayn and Breeze stole the show. Always thought Breeze was pretty average in the ring, despite the amazing gimmick, but if he can put on more matches like that I'm sold. Shame that while Zayn got a way better theme they've dropped Breeze's perfect one for an only decent one.

Charlotte and Natalya was good. Not as incredible as Paige and Emma was back at NXT Arrival, but still leagues ahead of the Diva shit we get on the main roster shows.

Neville and Kidd was great too. Still mark hard for that Red Arrow, incredible move.

Also Ricardo Rodriguez is incredibly out of shape and that moonsault he did was ridiculous.

Are they ever going to let Big Show win a championship again? I always find it silly when smaller, weaker wrestlers defeat him.

Maybe, he won the IC title like two years ago though, but i hope that Kane gets the honors of being champion once again (at least singles champion) before he retires.

I don't know why it bothered me so much, but I really hated that he looked so out of synch with Orton and HHH. Just looked really wrong to me.

Overall, this PPV wasn't bad, but, overall, it was a bit bland for my tastes. I like how the Cena v. Wyatt feud is going back and forth and I thought the Shield put on another great match with Evolution, but everything else was kinda weird. I didn't like Big E jobbing so easily to Rusev and the diva's match was weird. Not quite sure how I feel about the Rhodes brothers angle yet. We'll see how it plays out on Raw.

What about you guys?

Thought the whole show was very middling. No outright bad matches, but no particularly good ones outside of Shield vs Evolution either. Even that wasn't as phenomenal as the last one.

I missed the Rybaxel vs Brotherhood match and only caught the last few minutes of Cena vs Wyatt, though, so maybe they were different.

I didn't watch Payback, WWE's PPV's start when it's 1 AM here and i wasn't gonna stay up until 3 or 4 in the morning just to watch Payback. Even if i did stay up to watch it i wouldn't have probably liked the whole thing anyways so oh well.

Batista is trying way too hard to be cool. He seems insecure and lame.

It's funny how everyone (including me) was so hyped for him to return, then when he did we started booing him almost right away.

Rollins is an odd pick to be the one to turn heel, especially when he's standing next to Ambrose who is such a natural at it.

He looks so out of place with the rest of Evolution, but anything that gives us a chance of seeing Seth Rollins vs Dean Ambrose is okay in my book.

So, SHIELD is no more?

Pretty much. Prior to Royal Rumble we already saw that Reigns and Ambrose's egos were going to divide them at some point but I don't think anyone expected Rollins to be the one who turned. I think now they'll all be doing singles matches, possibly Ambrose and Reigns team up to fight Rollins and Orton(?).

The real question is what is Rollins gonna wear now? Because if he shows up to Smachdown in the same outfit as Ambrose and Reigns it'll be hella awks....

I feel that all of the members of The Shield are talented guys and they all have good enough mic skills to strike out on their own. However Ambrose is probably the best on the mic out of all of them and Reigns is the powerhouse type guy that people like to see. Out of the three of them Rollins is kind of the odd one out through no fault of his own. By making him the one to turn they all find themselves on relatively equal standing as far as how 'important' they are in their relationship.

I really like it because it means each member of The Shield is going to get their chance to shine as the talented individuals they are.

I was at the Smackdown taping this week since it was in Cincinnati and I can confirm that he'll be wearing his normal Shield outfit.

This week's Smackdown is great for not having Cena or D. Bryan on the card.

I'd much prefer to go to a Raw show like I did in January, though. All of these non-live television stuff was weird. I saw two completely separate Intercontinental title defenses in the same evening that had similar finishes.

Also, I like Daniel Bryan like most people I know, but am I the only person who wants him to not be able to compete at Money in the Bank? I think the idea of having the Money in the Bank Ladder Match be for the vacated WWE title for the first time ever to be infinitely cooler to watch than another Bryan v. Kane match, even if it does have a stretcher match stipulation to it.

You could just as easily have him return for Battleground or Summer Slam while keeping his "ultimate underdog" gimmick intact. People get hurt and people come back for injuries. It could play to his charm and the whole "Authority is trying to screw me" angle.

Like I said before: If I had to choose between ANOTHER match between Kane and Bryan or a potential history making WWE match, I'd go with the latter. Sorry.

I think I'm in the same boat.

I enjoyed the Kane match at Extreme Rules, but the feud itself is trash. I'd rather have Bryan chasing again rather than being stuck in shitty feuds, and a more exciting MITB is a great way to do it.

Still holding out for Lesnar vs Bryan, though. Short of another Cena match, or a cash in, that's the only way I could see anyone actually worrying his reign.

The Shield and Evolution could both turn into tag teams. There are never enough great tag teams in wrestling.

Looks like we're getting our wish. Bryan's been stripped of the title and this month's Money in the Bank match will be for the WWE Championship for the first time ever. I'm pumped.

Things need to be shaken up again. Take two single stars and put them together. Like when RVD and Kane were champions.

Or like X-Pac and Kane.

Or like Bryan and Kane.

Basically anyone and Kane.
