Was that Kairi Sane in the audience?!?

I love Naito, EVIL and Sanada so much. Sanada has changed a lot since his TNA run.

Mauro is there too :lol:, on his feet applauding Ospreay / Scurll (which was awesome!).

Amazing main event. Omega and Ibushi are flawless. And we have a killer main event for King Of Pro Wrestling on Monday(?)!

When Shawn Michaels’ hat came off I honestly thought his wig or something fell off too.

‘Taker’s hairline meanwhile looking more and more like Hogan...but longer at the back.

Has Michaels completely shaved his head now? He looked really weird when his hat came off.

Absolutely love Naito. Can't wait to see who the new member is. I find Los Ingobernables so much more interesting than Bullet Club.

I think I'm going to try and avoid spoilers for SSD and watch it Sunday night. Saturday morning just doesn't feel right to me.

SSD looks crap. Nearly all the main matches are big pointless tags. Yay.

I don't envy the wrestler's travel schedule. Fancy having to fly all the way to Australia and then within a couple of days all the way back again to do RAW and SD. Then in a few weeks they've got to do Saudi Arabia, and then right after that Europe. Brutal.

Voices that would shatter glass these two.

Not sure it was the best idea bringing The Shield that far through that crowd. Clearly some issues going on there.

Took so long they had to restart their music.

Cruiserweight and Styles/Joe were excellent. Rest of the show has just been enjoyable but pointless tag bouts.

This is the most WCW main event WWE has ever done. Everyone’s over-the-hill and it’s happening in slow motion.

Is Shawn Michaels’ hat now glued on? :slol:

Absolutely awful main event.

Miz-Bryan cut short so Taker and HHH could have their 30 minute entrances.

Wow triple h and Shawn Michaels finally vanquished the undertaker, beating him for the first time ever. A truly historical moment in wrestling history. I’m pretty sure that’s what just happened anyway.

That was by many standards a rather depressing main event...

Bring on Saudi Arabia!

Heard about the main event :dread:

I can only assume these type of events are happening because of Saudi money. They want the old skool big stars, didn’t they even at one point want Ultimate Warrior until they found out he was dead?

Hogan is so showing up there too. Urgh, WWE are just one car wreck after another.

Remember when the WWF used to have Jim Cornette have these segments on RAW IS WAR mocking WCW for their main events, calling Hogan vs. Piper from Halloween Havoc 1997 the "age in the cage". Remember how we all groaned when WWE then gave us Undertaker vs. Hogan at Judgment Day 2002. Remember how WWE for years kept telling everyone they couldn't do a PPV in the UK because of the 5 hour time difference (I mean, what lunatic in America would want to watch a show at 3pm, eh).

Now here in 2018 we've got Undertaker and Triple H taking up 40 MINUTES in the main event of a PPV taking place at 5am in the morning, while the Daniel Bryan/Miz rematch (which has been one of the main storylines on SD) goes 3 strawberry floating minutes.

WWE is setting records for the worst TV ratings ever, RAW's unwatchable, but it genuinely doesn't matter at the moment because they're making crazy money.
