Decent PPV. The tag title match was the MOTN. The HoH match was the worst by a country mile and somehow even dumber than I expected it to be. Strowman beating Reigns clean and killing him post-match were the best moments along with Alexa winning the Women's Championship.

Did Strowman win clean though? Reigns was pre-injured. There's an argument to be made there, not that I necessarily agree with it.

Yeah, but it was as clean as it could have been given the circumstances. Plus, it's Reigns, so I'm happy enough with the way Strowman won considering I wouldn't have put it past them to book Reigns to win even in the state he competed.

Injury or not, he hit his finisher twice and won with no shenanigans.And Reigns is meant to be superman who overcomes the odds and he just failed to do so

Wonder if they turn Sheamus and Cesaro heel due the fact that The Revival aren't gonna be back until June. Alexa isn't going to be RAW Women's champ very long she is most likely gonna drop the title to Sasha at Great Balls Of Fire in July.

Meh, not a fan of Sheamus&Cesaro heel turn, but maybe this way they are liked more since people nowadays only seem to like heels.

Also, I'm also not particularly proud of Reign's overpush, but those "You deserve" it chants after being totally destroyed by Braun were unnecessary.. Call me overexaggerated but fans nowadays are way too disrespectftul. And don't even get me started on the Bayley hate..

It's fake bro. He did deserve his fictional beatdown.

Braun Strowman is awesome. Guy broke into the business just two years ago and look at him main eventing and destroying the top babyface of the company. He really worked hard and improved a lot, his booking also has been reall good.

After rewatching the hoh match in the context of a serious match it was shit. In the context of a joke it was hilarious. Just so bad its funny.

Exactly. I dunno why anyone went into it taking it seriously. I normally hate wonky supernatural crap in wrestling, but I didn't treat this as a match, I treated it as some TV special that happens to star Orton and Wyatt. Much more enjoyable that way.

It's almost like Bray wasn't WWE Champion just 2 months ago. He's back to regularly looking inferior to the top opponents.

Story of his career sadly

I'm quite enjoyed Aries vs Neville. Aries was on fire in that match. I don't follow the weekly shows, but Aries seemed to bring it more than he has in his whole WWE run

Sad thing is...the angle as a whole could have been really cool. And I mean that.

 

If they had got a proper Victorian or colonial-era abandoned house, left the footage unedited, done it on an episode of Raw instead of the PPV, not had the weird stipulation where they had to return to the ring, etc...it could have been some decent fun. But every single thing that could have possibly been done wrong was done wrong. It just looked like the house of some random redneck with hygiene issues. It made Bray look like a dumbass slob...especially after we already SAW what was alleged to have been Bray's house when they did the original Wyatt promos. Put the match in a house that looked anything like that, and you would have been golden.
