AJ Styles and Undertaker delivered the main event that Night One was counting on.

I started watching wrestling in 2000, so Biker Taker was always his incarnation that felt the most true to me. That added a lot to my enjoyment of their Final Deletion style match. I've been encouraging my non-wrestling fan friends to check the match out.

The pirate graphics and opening video clearly had been produced far in advance. I was surprised that there wasn't much pageantry throughout the venue (I expected them to do something like turning the facility into one big pirate ship).

Loved the Miz and Morrison music video.

Goldberg losing to a weak looking slam was lame.

I enjoyed the Drew Galloway documentary after the show was over, although the lack of a TNA mention hurt its otherwise realistic feel.

Looking forward to Night Two's Lesnar/Galloway and Cena/Wyatt II.

I think that would require a construction crew all working together in close proximity and that would be a no-no during the current situation that we're all in.

Night Two wasn't as strong as night one. Really wish that Lesnar/Galloway went long rather than the two hours of Rated RKO. I suppose I'm still expecting the version of Lesnar that did Iron Man matches.

Cena v. Wyatt II pretty much saved the night singlehandedly. Demon version of Mr. Rogers causing John Cena to turn heel and join the nWo. I think that's an accurate summation of what happened?

I'm sure there were a lot of little things in the flashbacks that I missed. Was the Nexus in there at all? (Aside from CM Punk who was technically still Nexus at Money in the Bank 2011.)

I was impressed at how Cena/Wyatt was so stylistically different from Styles/Undertaker. The flashback deepdives into the career sagas of Cena and Wyatt felt artistic, but in a WWE way rather than a TNA/Broken Universe way.

Cena seeing himself as Hogan rather than as Rock/Austin makes sense. I wonder where the Hollywood Hogan aspect will go. Is Cena afraid of his darkside or tempted by it? Unlike Hogan, Cena spent his career peak being booed. Good to see him finally confront that it angered him how the fans treated him. If that's the catalyst for him turning heel, it works. He was a Superman that the world kept rejecting.

And Ric Flair's got a certain record that Hollywood Cena would want to break.

Wienerville's resident WCW mark adds his perspective: What does “BANG!” mean? You know... you will feel the BANG as he snaps the Diamond Cutter on you. It was just a way to drive home a point dramatically, like Emeril with “Bam!
