I like Enzo, but as soon as the he said concussion the crowd sort of died on him.
Poor Dana, makes a new friend hangs out with her family for the first time and gets stuck in an awkward domestic dispute.
AJ is going to kill himself out there wrestling that style every time he is on tv.
Is there a way to send Apollo Crews back to NXT without it seeming like a demotion?
Ambrose vs Ziggler, two guys I don't really care for but probably deserved better, in a battle of guys the machine sucked the life out of. Didn't Dolph recently sign an extension? I wonder how he feels about that?
Jericho just won't go away will he?
I liked the The Club segment just fine. AJ isn't the best on the mic, but he isn't brutal. He just doesn't talk in the WWE cookie cutter style, and there were far worse people tonight.
I'll be interested in the ratings since the third hour main event was worth sticking around for.
Someone needs to approve of Shane's clothes before he leaves the house.
Executive 1: Well, all the studies are in. No matter what we do, consumers just don't want New Coke. Executive 2: I see, I see. Executive 1: However, we did tease bringing back the old Coca-Cola and consumers went nuts for the idea. Executive 2: Oh my! Well, then, it seems clear what we have to do. Executive 1: Agreed. We bring back Coke- Executive 2: We'll call it Coke Classic, so we can still keep New Coke around- Executive 1: And then announce that we're going to spit in every third bottle and can of Coke Classic. Executive 2: That way, nobody wants Coke Classic more than they want New Coke! Executive 1: Exactly!

Seth can't go face yet, because his babyface feud was against the Authority and that hasn't been a thing since WrestleMania. With HHH off TV, he has no opponent. It makes more sense for Seth to come back and challenge Reigns as the uncrowned champion for at least one PPV, give him another good PPV match, then turn face for a SummerSlam feud.
Of course, WWE will probably mess up the follow-through and keep Seth heel for the next 6 months, but his reintroduction makes sense so far. It just shouldn't be a permanent state for him.
Always amusing when the crowd messes up Creative's plans to take us on an emotional rollercoaster by going into business for themselves. Charlotte's speech was clearly supposed to swerve us two or three times before the final "bring on the tears, Ric" bit but the WWE Universe got really bored really fast.
Wait, do I mean "amusing" or "sad?" Maybe both.
Cole straining to say "episode one thousand two hundred" every time instead of "twelve hundred" is my kryptonite. Does Vince really care that much about how numbers are pronounced in the WWE Universe? YES.
Yelling WHAT at Charlotte is the equivalent of her rival's music playing during a match. That was not handled well, and it nearly spoiled her turn against Ric.
The main event saw Owens miss a spinning springboard moonsault followed immediately by a springboard 450 from AJ for two. CRIMINEY. AJ lost clean after shooing away his bros, and Owens is somehow incredibly the anti-Cody, doing exactly what fits him and getting pushed to the moon for it.
Cass's Empire Elbow needs work, but he's pretty spry for a seven-footer.
I'm rooting for Jericho and Miz now as the tenacious elders. The Duds can't handle Cass. Ziggler can't handle Corbin. But Miz and Chris are still hanging in there.
Seems like Ambrose is the best choice to get the MITB, to hover over Seth and Roman in their feud. And maybe all realize that they are exactly where they all wanted to be to begin with.

I wish the WWE would do something with the stupid "What?" chants during promos. Pipe in fake crowd noise during the promos or just have them happen backstage. The "What?" chants are as tired and lame as "Sweet Caroline" at Fenway park or doing the wave at any baseball game. It ruins the TV experience. As a viewer I don't give a damn about the crowd.
Charlotte is not the only person to get affected by the crowd chants during an in-ring promo. She needs to learn to handle it better but damn, it was never this way during the 80's and 90's.
