Not sure that can be considered one of the greatest WMs ever when there wasn't even a single 5* classic on the card. Considering the horrible build leading up to it the event was definitely a success, though. Much better than I think anyone was expecting.

The only real downer was HHH winning, getting the face handshake and then reverting back to heel in the Rock face-off near the end. Still not sure why Sting would come to WWE after all this time for that but I suppose he'd have known about it in advance. I also like having Cena and Bryan with the other titles - especially as it should keep the former out of the title picture for a while. And if Brock is going to stick around I hope they let him do more than two moves all match. You can make him look like a wrecking machine doing other moves, too.

Edit: Oh, and Big Show winning the BR was also a downer. And maybe Undertaker beating Bray in a forgettable match as well.

Superb event, looking forward to watching it again and going to stay up for Raw.

Although id agree there wasn't a 5* match, but top to bottom every match was pretty good. Main event was brutal, awesome stuff. Gutted for Reigns but Rollins is brilliant and was an amazing surprise.

Brock needs to stop with this suplex pish, looks the part but gets pretty boring 3rd title match in a row doing the same thing. Brock must have been bleeding at three different parts of his face, glad they both went for it as I thought they would.

strawberry float yeah. The point is that he suplexes them into destruction and no-one has an answer to him. I actually think it's fantastic.

And the suplexes themselves. He makes it look like it's all his pure strength.

Absolutely. Last night it looks as if both guys had decided to work stiff to sell the ending and Brock's suplexes looked particularly destructive. Wouldn't be surprised if one or both of them walked out concussed. And the amount of blood that came out of Brock's head... :dread:

His suplexes do tend to look pretty unique compared to anyone else's. Most people tend to time their jump with the throw but Lesnar's already hoisted them off the ground and making it look like he's just tossing a pile of rags. One thing I will say is it's sorta his storytelling move. When he hits it it's like "that's the move he used to squash Cena and start his dominance".

Two thirds of the Shield involved in the main event while Dean is still looking for his first PPV win as a singles guy. I'm hoping they decide to get behind him again. I thought they'd at least give him the IC gold as he was the one that first wanted the thing.

It is but he's been a suplex machine for quite a long time. Specifically using it last year against Taker kicked off his supreme dominance. It's good and right that he wasn't pinned to lose the title. He should take some time off, let the other two feud over the belt for a while and them come back for it at the end of the year. Then headline next year's WM as a monster once again. :wub:

How did Reigns come out looking good from that main event exactly?

He got thrown around the ring like a rag doll for 3/4 of it before getting pinned by Rollins.

Brock was the one who was protected and came out of that like he'd been stiffed.


He looked tough - Lesnar threw him around like a rag doll and he wouldn't quit. It took a city full of suplexes, four F5s and two curb stomps to put him down.

I guess.

But of the three involved in that main event, he was a distant third.
