- "YOU SEE." Why doesn't an agent stop this in every promo?
- Either way, Sasha Banks calls out Team Raw. Both Raw and NXT show up.
- Rhea Ripley makes a Captain's Challenge match.
- Rhea Ripley fits RIGHT IN with these two girls. She could stand to slow down a little bit, but she's way ahead of where she should be at this age.
- Charlotte is doing the majority of the selling, which is a good change of pace.
- There are a lot of good power strikes, and you can see Rhea feeling the pace out more and more as the match goes on.
- Ripley takes one of the best Meteoras in recent memory, and breaks up a pin on Sasha after Natural Selection.
- Ripley eats a Natural Selection and gets to the ropes. Cole says it wouldn't break the count. The rope WILL break a count in a triple threat. It's a no DQ, not a falls count anywhere.
- Charlotte applies a Figure Eight to Sasha, and Ripley crucifixes Charlotte to get the win. This finish RULED.
NEW IC Title
- Sami Zayn comes out and says Corbin won't stand up to him.
- He reveals the new IC Title to Nakamura. INCREDIBLE.
Undisputed Era defeated Heavy Machinery & New Day
- Undisputed Era show up and run off Zayn and Nakamura. New Day come out and bring out Heavy Machinery.
- The crowd is big into this match. Kofi Kingston is selling for a great portion of it and Heavy Machinery doesn't even get in for a while.
- Otis and Big E almost get into it at ringside, and Tucker has to break it up.
- Undisputed Era are the perfect team to bump and feed for Otis' hot tag. He gets a great reaction.
- Tucker with a moonsault!!! What?! This match is insane.
- Kofi is caught with a High Low outside when he misses an attack.
- Strong pins Tucker. This ruled.
- Strong confronts Nakamura at the ramp, but AJ Styles comes out to attack.
- The OC has been ranting, and they get CM Punk chants, but Styles says that he would wipe the floor with Punk. This was weird.
Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz
- Daniel Bryan comes out and throws to a video. He shows the history of he and THE FIEND.
- The lights go out and Bray Wyatt doesn't show up. The Miz does, and we have a match that a lot of people thought would be on a WrestleMania.
- Cole says this feud has been going on well over a decade. It hasn't.
- They go through a lot of the hits, but there's a good noise over the crowd as they do it.
- Daniel Bryan finally gives in to do the YES dropkick, but the lights go out.
- The Fiend shows up and applies the Mandible Claw to Daniel Bryan.
Bayley and Shayna
- Bayley is interviewed backstage and says that she's not backing down from anyone.
- Baszler comes out to the ring and calls Bayley out about an hour later.
- Bayley attacks from behind and Baszler is livid. Bayley does an awesome job playing this up like she barely made it out.
Team Corbin defeated Team Reigns
- We see the Smackdown roster backstage partying or something, not listening to King Corbin, but getting quiet when Roman Reigns stands up.
- Backstage, Corbin drops a line about Ali being from Chicago, which I thought was a great way to remind the live crowd. Zayn shows up and annoys Corbin, Ziggler and Roode, who are plotting to get Roman & co. beat up.
- It is very dumb to have this match before Survivor Series.
- Ali gets a great reaction.
- Chad Gable is double slammed onto the announce table in a great spot.
- Reigns is great in this match and it's weird that they almost never have anything great creatively for him.
- Ali gets a hot tag to a good reception. Corbin has trouble keeping up, but recovers well. Ali is on fire.
- The match breaks down, and King Corbin pins Ali with a Deep Six. Good way to help establish that move.
- For some dumbass reason, Corbin wants to hurt his partners on Sunday even more and goes to attack them, but Reigns takes them out.
- Team Raw comes out.
- The big Rollins vs. Reigns face-off.........and the crowd chants for CM Punk.
- Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Road Dogg leading NXT in via a Jeep.
- A lot of these segments and promos involving Triple H in this NXT invasion have had call-backs to some of his more iconic promos and moments.
- Hoooo boy Keith Lee and Braun go face-to-face
10- Perfect, 9- MOTY Territory, 8- Excellent, 7- Great, 6- Good, 5- Average to above average, 4- Slightly below average, 3 or below: Poor
Each match starts at a 5 and slides up and down based on entertainment, execution, time, environment, reaction and stakes. The ratings are in no way an indication of a "star rating," which is a completely different system. A standard, non-offensive "TV match" lands at a 5. The gap between 5.75-6 is generally the largest, with anything reaching 6 being recommended viewing.
These are opinions, and incredibly inconsistent ones that may change upon a second viewing, or sitting on the match for a period of time. Don't take them too seriously, and have (and share) your own!
