Another show leads to more head shaking decisions for 90% of the talent. Ziggler/Cena could have a feud, but nah lets have Cena win legit. The Divas are a mess and the only good thing to come out of it is Sasha Banks' gif tweets. Kane, all 65 years young of him just pinned the World Champ fairly clean. Best of all was WWE having to confirm Lana/Rusev are engaged then having Rusev do a less than 3 minute job to Mr. Future Lawsuit Waiting to Happen. Reigns cut a promo and no one card. Ambrose or Orton are going to turn on each other and we can see already the wrong guy is going to be the heel.
New Day was New Day. Yet, that is not enough to save it. I understand its the fall. Steelers/Chargers is going to get a big number,(Bell for MVP), but you need to do something. I mean its not like your golden boy isn't going to be gone for a few months or maybe longer if his reality show takes off. Oh wait..
Kane weathered a Rollins match*, a Big Show punch, and a mob attack and still got a clean win over the champ. I wanted a last hurrah run for him, complete with title shot. So good for him.
I wonder though if last night was the peak of the push. What else can he do but hoist the belt? And he won't. This is not much different than the Sting title shot except we have heel vs. heel. And if Sheamus cashes in and wins, we'll have three heel champs within ten minutes, and that follows heel Brock carrying the belt into Mania.
It underscores the dearth of main-event faces, but more to the point, the whole main event is shallow. If Sheamus cashes in, he moves up to the main event, leaving only Rollins as a viable main event face contender. Anyone else would likewise have to move up, including Orton, Reigns, and Ambrose (Alf laugh).
*That frogsplash! Rollins is loaded with rasslin moves.
My only hope for next week is that Cena holds an open challenge next week, and out walks Undertaker. Just to take the title into his Lesnar match. Just to be a jerk. YOU WANT SOME, COME GET -- DONG.
I could have worded that better.

Here comes three months of jobbing for Rusev until Lana's wrist heals and they're able to reunite the pair on-screen. WWE just doesn't make sense sometimes.
George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.
I gotta admit New Day making Randy break character during their opening promo and The Ziggler v. Cena match were pretty awesome. They got me and I foolishly thought Zigg was gonna win so kudos to that.
Plus the irony of Cena being such a champion of people getting married given his stance on getting married himself had to cause some hamster spinning in Nikki's head, which tickles all the funny bones.
Cole: "Yeah, thanks to Kane. You should buy Kane a Rolex watch for what he did for you."
Rollins: "Oh don't be silly, Kane doesn't wear watches."
Man, that Rusev/Summer segment was just about as close as I've ever seen to all of the writers and talent for an angle just walking out to the ring and saying, "Sorry, we really dropped the ball here. Just forget about all that stuff like it never happened." As bad as that whole angle was, I could have salvaged it last night to at least give everyone involved some forward momentum. This just killed it.

Seeing as how Taker's go-to move lately has been the mighty Punch to the Package, I think you worded it PERFECTLY.

They should have had the lights darken. When the lights come up, Rusev is down in the ring, seemingly out. Lana is by the ringpost and Cena or Ziggler is climbing through the ropes and goes to the back, Celebrating. Lana climbs in and goes to Rusev - he looks at her - and says - confusedly "Summer" - and in her best Russian voice Lana says, "you've been unconscious Dahlinck, you just took an AA/ZigZag" are you ok?" And Rusev says "It must have all been a dream...."
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Good show this week. Bully Ray is back, picking up from where he left off last summer. Calfzilla had a lot of unfinished business when he departed. The Beatdown Clan and Lashley have unfinished business with him.
