Omega's selling of the Codebreaker is so much better than anyone in WWE. Sells it like an RKO return than just bending down and falling backwards like everyone else.

Surprised by the headline finish. Good match. I love Naito.

Great PPV. Time flew compared to a WWE show.

So much salt about Naito not winning the belt. While it would have been nice, it wasn't necessary and I'm now MORE interested where he goes from here.

Best Jericho match for like a decade, seriously.

Agreed.

In no way am I expecting these guys to perform at that level on a nightly basis but goes to show bad the WWE style of wrestling is excluding NXT obviously.

What a match Y2J and Omega. Will need to watch rest of PPV tonight, know loads of the big NJPw names but never watched their matches so looking forward to it.

Confused with rules in Y2J match though, Jericho going nuts for ref trying a rope break the Walls then gets rope break after One Winged Angel. Countouts too, thought there was none and no rope breaks in no dq?

The four-way with Scurll, Ospreay, KUSHIDA and Takahashi was fantastic. That and the Omega v Jericho match were my favourites. Main event was really good but I thought last year's with Okada vs Omega was much better.

Looks like Jericho is hanging around and feuding with Naito now.

No DQ matches have always confused me. Surely no DQ means just that, you can’t be disqualified and the ref’s only role is deciding the fall be it by pin, submission or knockout but there are always rope breaks and corner counts etc.

I think it made more sense this way than what generally happens in a no DQ - it's not "no rules at all" after all. The way I saw it, the ref can give a five count if some one gets the rope in a submission, but there's not much he can do if they don't break the hold. Again, a rope break to stop a pin has nothing to do with disqualifications I guess.

I really hope Suzuki takes the belt off Tana and he has at least a few months off. It's what both guys deserve.

Jericho is a great actual heel. No one really gets to be hostile on that level in wwe. Everyone has to have a hint of tweener so they can sell merch. Jericho was full on dictionary definition of nasty it was amazing.

Never thought I’d see the day when a group like Little Mix would be the official theme tune to a WWE PPV. I know they're the biggest girl group in the world, but their music doesn’t exactly scream wrestling.

Wow. Shocking news. She's only 25 as well.

What a disaster for her. I really hope it's a situation like Bryan where somewhere down the line she can get a second opinion. No doubt she will come back to the Knights promotion at some point though.

I'd like to see WWE get creative though and at least give her a managers deal where she can be the Paul Heyman for some of the women that can't talk. It would be nice now WWE are taking the women's division properly seriously if we actually got a decent female manager for once.

She doesn’t need a second opinion. She’s had the same injury as Edge not Bryan who is more concession related rather than Neck. If she knows what’s best for her like Edge then she’d stay out of the ring.

She told Lillian Garcia in a podcast last month that her personal doctor told her not to wrestle again. So this looks like it was going to happen soon enough, so idiots shouldn’t be blaming Banks.

Interesting that Paige just said that she’s having to sit the rumble out due to injury. She didn’t exactly retire. Her choice or wwe’s? Maybe it’s not as bad as reported or she’s just refusing to accept it.

Also why did Seth beat Finn. They are taking the steam out of Balor Club already.

They are probably waiting more assessments. I'd say it's probably genuinely unresolved at this point. If Paige was refusing to accept it I think they would just pull her off TV.
