That building isn’t even remotely sold out.

I’m guessing the barricades and LED boards are all in Saudi Arabia... :slol:

The lighting rig isn’t right, either.

I was about to say how dark it is in the arena.

I think the crowd might actually make this a more entertaining show. Very reactive so far. The lighting makes it feel a like an indie show.

Feels like a televised house show. Real positive that the crowd is into things thus far though.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they’ve turned the lights off completely to hide that the entire upper deck and mid bowl area is empty (it’s why they also shot low at the announce table).

Yeah it's possible, good opening.

1, 2, .......................... hurry up Alicia break up the count, ....................... Oh so close nearly a 3 count there.

Even the audio levels are echoey. WWE B team producing this show, I guess.

Can’t believe there isn’t a gravy bowl match on this show.

...and then Wilson comes out.

I hope there’s something of the calbre of Sasha Banks vs. Bayley from NXT on this show.

“My husband loves doughnuts”. Renee completely no selling that Dean Ambrose was a complete bastard on RAW, there.

Wasn't as fun as the Women's Royal Rumble. Don't really see the point of Nia winning either, to be honest. It's not like she'll be off to feud with Rousey again so soon.

I didn't think they'd go with a Japanese winner two years in a row. Would have preferred Shirai to win, but I like Storm too.

But if Sane loses tonight too, I'm totally calling it punishment for both being caught at a NJPW PPV recently.

Banks not usually so tentative. Wonder if she came back from injury too early.

Those boos for Crown Jewel.

Completely forgot there was one more match to come. That Last Woman Standing would have been a great way to end the show.
