I really enjoyed the opening promo, it’s not often I say that about WWE these days so I thought I’d make a special mention. I didn’t watch the pre-show, so we’ll skip right past that and into the main show! Surprised yet delighted about Breezango picking up the surprise victory though.
Sasha Banks & Mystery Partner vs. Charlotte & Dana Brooke
Well, I’ll be damned it was Bayley! Great to see her on the main roster but I do have some huge concerns for the NXT Women’s division. They just lost…well, everyone! We’ll worry about that another time though, it was a great way to start the PPV and a great addition to the women’s division for the main roster. Although JBL did say it was a ‘one off’. So who knows.
It was a great match to open the show. It really popped the crowd having Bayley and Sasha team up and win. Looking forward to the continued feud between Charlotte and Sasha, hopefully their Summerslam match will be fantastic.
The New Day vs. The Wyatt Family
Another great promo leading into this match, which was immediately ruined by the New Day being their usual daft selves. I love the New Day, but there’s a time to drop the jokes and be serious. Make The Wyatt’s look like an actual threat you know? It’s was a wasted opportunity to show something different from Big E and crew. Even Xavier looked relaxed and jovial again, despite what the promo was suggesting.
It especially doesn’t make sense, when the second the match begins Xavier goes back to being scarred of Bray which is the story for most of the match. It was a good match, I do feel like the odd vibe set it off slightly. Bray was on fire though, the clothesline a chokeslam he did to Kofi Kingston were brutal!
The Wyatt’s pick up the victory, Bray looked great like I say. Still don’t understand the decision to split them up if I’m honest. The last time they did this, it didn’t work out that well for any of them. Hopefully Luke Harper is going to rejoin Wyatt and Rowan on Smackdown soon though when he is recovered from injury.
