They've done an amazing job with the long term narrative of their characters and relationship. It's kinda what Owens and Zayn should have been like on the main roster.

Already mixed feelings... one half of AoP one half of Revival...

I'm looking forward to Sasha getting a singles match at a PPV, one that should hopefully be given a decent spot. Can't help but think they've only included her because Charlotte and Becky will interfere after Rousey cost them the belt at the last PPV, setting up the four horsewoman nonsense for 'Mania. It'll be interesting to see some of the angles they'll set up for 'Mania, and any potential surprises. But with AEW on the horizon, I'm not expecting any Styles-like entries.

Daniel Bryan cutting a promo on a burger. If you didn't watch the kick off that gold is what you missed.

That was great. Started off a bit sloppy, but just kept escalating, becoming really tense at the end. There were some brutal looking spots. It was a fight, but not at the expense of the wrestling. It was a loss that didn't feel damaging to Lynch either. She's now free to enter the Rumble and pitch for Rousey. Should they not just give it to Charlotte, because WWE like giving her things. I hope it's Rousey / Lynch and no other nonsense.

Shane’s punches never get old. Millwall he is not.

I strawberry floatin' love Banks man. Some of those counters, and the homages. Banks and Rousey actually have a lot in common. Seemed to be a couple of moments of confusion, but it was the most technical match we've seen from Rousey. Enjoyed it a lot.

I actually liked the hologram intro stuff too.

Nikki Cross is basically the Scottish version of Daffney.

That was ace! The Lana / Lynch thing was predictable, but there was such an overwhelming feeling of joy to see Lynch storm the ring. And they kept stacking the deck against her, Stone Cold style. Enjoyed that even more than last year.

Vega was amazing too. :lol:

strawberry float me, I thought this WWE title match would be quick with the time we have left! Wasn’t this supposed to be over at 4ish? Still the men’s Rumble ANS Universal title match to go :dread: Balor will probably get squashed :fp:

Probably should have ended with the women's Rumble, but it's still odd booking to have Lynch tap out, then win the Rumble to set up a match against a submission wrestler.

Looks like a bunch of predictable results apart from them just having Becky tap out clean which is just lol. Thought that would end in a strawberry float finish or something.
