  2. The fuck?

    I almost got nothing right with predictions

    Why the fuck did Sasha lose the belt?! Don't tell me it's because they want it on Dana Brooke instead.... Sasha better win it back and if she doesn't and that's it then Surrender Me Now.

    What the fuck is up with that Universal Title design? Thank god Finn won it but since WWE chose to debut the awful belt at the event the crowd was more about shitting on the belt.

    Why the fuck did they air that KFC commercial too? That is very humiliating to Dolph since he just lost to Ambrose shortly before.

    Where the fuck was Goldberg or some other fucking person? Ok, I wasn't counting on Goldberg coming because Steph and Trips aren't really on the best of terms with him. But at least have someone run in.

    Oh, and WHAT THE FUCK was with that ending? TKO? That even possible? Or is WWE throwing middle fingers at UFC now or something, I don't even know if Orton was supposed to bleed.

    Ok on a serious note we got some good matches and stuff but- WHAT THE FUCK?

    my overall rating... Uhhh, I don't know, nothing can do it justice

    Fuck Knows/10

  3. I rated it a five and I think that is being generous.

    The best parts of the show for me were Cena vs AJ and Sasha vs Charlotte. I also enjoyed Big E returning even though I am not really a fan. I was surprised Balor won the Universal belt, but as I enjoy both Seth and Finn, either could have won and I would have been happy.

    What really killed the show, however, was the main event between Orton and Lesnar. After having all of those people sitting in the arena for six hours, THAT is how they chose to end the show? By having one of their bigger stars of the past decade not only return, but to have the holy living crap beat out of him? To actually have him beat worse by Lesnar than anyone has been beaten by him so far?

    Now personally, I am a much bigger fan of Lesnar than I am of Orton. I've never been a fan of Randy and I tend to think he is extremely overrated. But still this was way too much. To not only have him be completely dominated in the match but to be beaten and bleeding and made to almost look like a total jobber to Lesnar.

    But the worst thing is that the match was lousy and there was nothing to sort of appease the fans afterwards. If they're building towards something specific, they really should have done something with it. It was just a very negative way to end such a long pay per view and I think they REALLY screwed this up.

  4. Figured AJ v Cena was gonna be the main highlight of the show, glad I didn't waste six hours to learn what I already expected to be true.

    Like, Rusev v Reigns was the only other match I was even remotely interested in, and it ends in a no-contest? On the second biggest PPV? Okayyy.

    Think Nikki Bella returning will probably be my only other highlight when I watch, wow. Although, I am sure the match itself for the women's title is decent.

    Bring on the brand split PPVs, too much substance and not enough impact to care for this one it seems.

  5. Aj vs Cena was by far the best match. They really proved tonight that they are the 2 tops guys on WWE.

    Rollins vs Balor and Sasha vs Charlotte were decent matches as well buy nothing incredible.

    The rest of the matches were just average and boring. I thought Ambrose vs Ziggler was the biggest dissapointment of the night. Reigns vs Rusev never actually starting was dissapointment as well.

    I have mixed feelings about Lesnar vs Orton. I mean the majority of the match was the basic Lesnar squash routine with Randy hitting a couple finishers and gaining a short momentum only for Brock to kick out. But that ending was just brutal. But it makes me wonder was that the planned finish and what's about to happen backstage if it wasnt? I definitely think that was improvised once Randy got busted open because he surely didnt blade. U could see where Lesnar hit him with a heavy elbow that busted him open. So I wasnt a big fan of the match but I'm very interested to hear what comes next due to that brutal and shocking finish

  7. Sasha losing sucks but she'll get it back and sets up Bayley to debut

    The New Day match with The Club was ok

    Styles and Cena was amazing

    Miz winning was boring

    Nikki returning was cool

    Balor and Rollins had a great match as well

    Ambrose pretty much buried Ziggler

    Rusev/Reigns thing was weird

    Wtf was with the ending of Lesnar/Orton
     
  8. I just watched it a couple more times and I actually think Randy did blade. I saw the elbow you were talking about, but it was still a few seconds after that before Randy started bleeding... and before he was bleeding, his had his taped up wrists covering the area that eventually began bleeding. Although I think they did a good job with it, I am sure that it was a blading.

    In regards to whether they improvised it, I don't think they did. If Randy really was hurt or even if there was a possibility that he was really hurt, I doubt they would have continued on with the beating. Plus, the interaction with Shane didn't seem improvised at all. I think it was very convincing, but it was undoubtedly in my mind a completely scripted finish.

    This is obviously building towards something, though I have no idea what. I mean, they REALLY made Orton look weak here and due to his "crazy" gimmick, he may have been one of the more believable people to not be dominated by Lesnar. So maybe Orton will snap, come back and totally unload on Lesnar. Maybe this is a set up to put over someone else in a little bit. Obviously it was so brutal that something is going to happen with Lesnar going forward. Not sure what, but interested in what it might be.
     
  9. Pre Show didn't watch, its 99% a waste of time.


    Jericho and Owens Vs Enzo And Cass: This was one big huge MEH. It had some decent heat on Owens and Jericho at the end but it was a really basic and boring match. Rating: **

    Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks: This was good, not as good as their Raw match but still good. The finish sucked, the match wasn't as good as Asuka/Bayley last night so it gets a lower rating. ***1/2

    The Miz Vs Apollo Crews: Was good, quick and to the point. ***

    AJ Styles Vs John Cena: MOTY in WWE, awesome match. ****1/2

    Dean Ambrose Vs Dolph Ziggler: I've never been so bored to death by a main event match in my life (Until later tonight). Such an awful match. *1/2

    Finn Balor Vs Seth Rollins: UUUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHHH. This was supposed to be a highlight but its a lowlight. *** at most.


    Brock Lesnar Vs Randy Orton: DUD. Awful awful awful match. So fucking terrible, I've never been so disinterested and bored in a match before, up until the end it was just dog shit squash routine.

    The ending doesn't sit right with me, I don't know what would be worse Brock opening up Orton like that intentionally without prior planning or Orton letting him bust him open, something about it just seems really off and the biggest part of that was Brock attacking him when the doctors were cleaning his wound that just seems so bizarre to me especially when its a legit injury THREE TIMES he did this and started hitting his head and it just seemed weird. I mean look at the amount of blood he spilled:

    [​IMG] It wasn't a normal blade job it was a huge gash on his head. It just seems off, I don't want to call it a shoot because lets be honest its likely not but it just seems off. We'll find out more tomorrow I guess when WON is out.

  10. Yeah idk I didn't catch the blading but those 2 elbows Lesnar layer on him were definitely intentional. I feel like it had to of been scripted because it's WWE and that's what they do. But from Randy throwing shade on Lesnar for using PED and also it looked like Orton was almost sand bagging some of Brocks German suplexes. Lol Lesnar could of just snapped
     
  11. 7/10. Quick review, it was good.
    Loved the setup and colour schemes. And the grey mat/barriers and ring posts with the screens was a cool look. And the white ropes were actually an awesome look with those colours.... for a change.
    I hated the white ropes and posts for raw and sd. It made everything look so plain
     
  12. See nothing about it really called out "off script" to me. Lesnar plays his role well and convincingly and I think that is all that has happened here. If Lesnar had honestly snapped, then the ending would have been a lot different... Shane McMahon most likely would not have been involved and the security would have done more to actually keep Lesnar off of Orton. No one did anything to stop it which screams scripted to me.
     
  13. I'll add that I am sure that the conversation we are having about it being real or not is exactly what the WWE wanted to come out of this, so great job on their part for that.

  14. Yeah ur probably right. It's probably a work and WWE did a real good job of making it super convincing
     
  15. Finn Balor who's only good trait is his wrestling ability had an incredibly boring match. Orton and Lesnar was lazy. Best match was big match John vs. GayJ Styles. Just an awful PPV, 3/10. And don't pretend that botchfest women's match was good.
     
  16. I didn't watch but I listened in on a lot of it and from what I heard, it wasn't anything special but it wasn't horrific. I think that SummerSlam in general is thought to be a "big deal" PPV which is likely why it didn't do so well with a lot of people. I think I did hear some booing at the end of it from the fans. The ending seemed to be a bit overboard but I think that is what they were banking on. They wanted people talking about it. Sasha being removed from future shows with WWE makes me think she either broke a policy or maybe she just needed to deal with personal maters. Either way, that was a shocker. I figured Nikki was returning so that wasn't a surprise. Not a fan of hers but I know some of you are. Finn winning is a coin flip. This can be good but it can be bad, we will have to see. Not surprised Rusev retained or Miz won. New Day winning was a bit of a shocker as they seem stale to me. John is taking time off, not shocked he lost.

    The belt design tho... :ohgod:
     
  17. Totally expected some of those results. lol

    This show does seem like a clusterfuck, but I'll reserve judgment until I've actually watched it.

    Also, THIS is the Universal belt? Deplorable.


    They put no effort in it, it's like someone had an old pair of Nakamura's pants and said it was a great idea to be put on a belt. Just... Eww.
     
  18. Well, when he comes to the main roster, it'll match him at least :dawg:

  19. Nakamura can't speak English for fuck sake what's the difference between him and Finn they both are great wrestlers and have cool entrances. I say make him a Paul Heyman guy bill him as this international talent Heyman acquired.
     
  20. Like the avatar lol that's dope.

  21. It was ok, just went far too long (Thanks Colonel Ziggler). The Universial title is respectable. I don't mind the idea of having the titles look similar, try and blend a little boxing and UFC by doing that. Looks a little like a fruit roll-up though. AJ Vs Cena was worth the whole show, it was absolutely fantastic.

    Props to Orton for taking that elbow, I hope he got a huge ass payday for it.
