Well, this was a hot crowd at the start of the night...

Zayn was an interesting swerve.

I hope that's a proper heel turn for him, he was languishing in the roster.

No matter how many times you see them on the cell, it's still heart in mouth stuff.

As bad as that fall looked (the padding looked like it did bugger all) Shane will be walking out just fine on Tuesday like last time. Even got the same thumbs up!

I thought someone was going to go flying off it. They were being so tentative it looked they were going to make a mistake 18ft up.

'Get some stripper polls'

He immediately regretted that as soon as he said it. :slol:

I don’t think it will be. I’m expected him to play a conflicted sorry character now, which will be even worse for his character.

Start and end of the show definitely worth watching (that alone will take well in excess of an hour to watch); skip the middle. There was no reason for this show to be 4 hours in length so dragged quite a bit in places.

In the zoomed out shot when Shane is about to jump I love how you can clearly notice Sami Zayn standing at the bottom of the cell ready to pull Owens away and when he does the announcers act shocked like he's just appeared from nowhere.

Hopefully it is a heel turn, the man was the most generic(o) face ever, I haven’t had any interest in him since he fought Nakamura in NXT.
All male champions on Smackdown are now heels, not the best thing to get house show attendance up. Jinders wrestling style and character belong in the 80s. They’ve killed off any hype Nakamura had. Great show though :slol:

Bray Wyatt is well beyond even being embarrassing at this point

Since when are Lumberjack matches no DQ?! Back in my day the lumberjacks were just there to throw a guy back in the ring, they can’t just go legally breaking up pin falls!

If Bray was someone with the stature of, say, Kane he could probably get away with this nonsense.

Another great moment on RAW last night was the commentary during the women's Fatal Five Way match. Booker T descending into Steve Mongo McMichael-levels of incomprehensible waffle, and Michael Cole not even knowing the rules of the match, which in fairness could have been anyone's fault including his.

I don't get why that fatal fiveway was a thing.

The only thing on the line was fighting Asuka right?

Jim Cornette's sure had an eventful weekend. First he got into an argument with Santino Marella and stormed out, and then later that same day he got his dick out because he saw a cardboard cutout of Vince Russo...

So apparently Neville walked out before Raw on Monday.

'Every week I go out there and every week you have me talk like Triple H circa 2000 and some arsehole then tells me I look like an elf...'

Walking out on the company on the night of TV is very unprofessional though (and it's not like Neville is the stature of a Steve Austin); even if you've had enough or something is going on in your personal life, at least someone like Wade Barrett gave his notice and saw out his time properly.

strawberry floating hell, I'd have walked out after that Wyatt promo! Who the strawberry float is writing that absolute shite? Devitt looked ridiculous trying to sell it too. Utterly embarrassing.
