I really really hope Lesnar decides to give a damn about this match since Brock/Joe has been built up extremely well.
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 have about an hour and a half in the morning before heading off to work and can easily watch Raw by skipping through the pointless parts and still have a lot of time to get ready.
It started well, but Strowman should have just walked off rather than roaring to get the babyface cheers which they must hate, despite their 'getting a reaction shows you are over' theory. There can be some truth to that if roles are reversed, but they aren't going to do that.
Being in the UK the Ball stuff meant nothing to me and I'm not disappointed about that. When was the last time there was 'a F bomb' on Raw? Pillman all those years ago? I assume that it wasn't just because I didn't know who they were that I thought it was strange and pointless?
The women main eventing was good for novelty value and has been a long time coming (Lita v Trish?) but having Nia go for 30 minutes must have raised eye brows before the start? She did well but throwing Sasha out all those times ruined it a bit for me. Maybe that is just because I don't really like Sasha. Babyface coming in last against an absolutely knackered heel and still needing ages to beat her doesn't seem right to me. Hopefully Alexa wins.
Cass just doesn't interest me on his own and Enzo never has. If they both turned and Enzo stopped wrestling it could have worked, but a match between them is nothing and Cass doesn't interest me at all.
They have done a good job with making Joe look good after him doing very little for a while. I'd love for them to give Joe the title rather than keeping it on Lesnar for another 8 months or so to lose it to Reigns at Mania. Joe wins and looks great which leads to some good matches through the year - can still do Roman and Brock at Mania but at least things would happen up to that point.
The women have main evented a few times since Trish-Lita, mainly a few Sasha-Charlotte matches. Speaking of which, it's about time Sasha is back in the title picture. Hope they keep here there for a while.
Poor Bayley. They don't know what to do with the girl. Can we just have Sasha turn heel finally and let her and Bayley play off each other like they do best?
They have made Joe look so good. As long as he doesn't lose in two minutes to Brock at GBOF, they really can't go wrong with the result. Let's see if they run with Joe being a badass after or if he returns to the midcard to randomly fight somebody.
Strowman is continually awesome. I just want a half hour Network show of him throwing people into things. Alternately, skits where he screams "I'M NOT FINISHED WITH YOU" and the camera zooms out to reveal the past piece of pizza or the continue screen of a video game.
I appreciate the effort put into Cass & Enzo, but my large dislike of Enzo just makes me want to cheer Cass. Enzo's kind of a douche.

I'm an American and I had no idea who they were. Somebody explained it to me ten minutes ago and I still barely know.
So the kid is the Los Angeles Lakers' hot new rookie, right? I almost hope he washes out after a season or two, just to add another level of WTF-ery to the segment.
This interview really helped sync in how idiotic a move it was to make that match so short. If there is ever a PPV where Superstar athleticism and in-ring storytelling should take precedence it's Wrestlemania.
