And they cut that time to give more minutes to Edge and Seth Rollins?!?

Yes and it was a great match and the crowd loved it.

As much as I feel sorry for Zelina on a personal level, there wasn't anything on the show that should've been cut to give her a match.

It’s easily the best weekly WWE TV show this year. Really focussed and full of good stuff. I’ve no hope they can maintain it but as a one-off show this was a big thumbs up. Fingers crossed this is a sign of things to come though. It’d be brilliant if the buzz around AEW forced some real change and stopped them sleep-walking through months and months of television.

God bless them sending Brock out with his beard, top knot and flannel shirt. Who needs Bryan Danielson? We’ve got Bryan Danielson after taking super serum!

”Brock Lesnar looks like he’s eaten Brock Lesnar!”

Good old Pat McAfee.

This may seem like an odd question, but does Smackdown have a different writing team? Or do they give more freedom to the wrestlers with their stories? I know Roman has a lot of freedom and so did Bryan, but just wondering how it can be so contrasting to Raw.

Also, there were a lot of folk over on the twitter shit machine calling Balor racist and claiming he was using blackface.

ANother good reason to just totally ignore Twitter! 

Twitter is a nightmare these days. Maybe it always has been but its definitely more noticeable now. Its funny how people are quick to jump on anything anti-WWE they can but they rarely give a shit about supporting these wrestlers normally. I remember all the anger over the releases when it was a bunch of people no one gave a shit about when they were actually performing. But as soon as they're in a position to be used in the anti-WWE argument then they're suddenly their favourite wrestlers.

Don't get me wrong. There's obviously a lot to criticise about WWE but there's also a lot of shit posted on social media.

To be fair, the Demon look does have a bit of a minstrely vibe to it.

You really believe not a single match could have been bumped to next week for something as symbolic as that?

It's not the fact of cutting something she was supposed to be on the show going by interviews she'd done prior to it so shit just ran long. Unless they just told her that to keep her sweet for her to do that doc premiere thingy

Lesnar is a star and he’s leagues above anybody else in WWE. I love his selling too. Took those two super kicks like a champ. To steal a phrase from Cena, Brock is doing it better part time than some are doing it full time. 

I still love watching his selling of Drew’s claymore on him that eliminated him from the Rumble. It was perfect.

As mentioned above, the show was focused and decent throughout. A nice vibe to it, good fans. The Lesnar section was just great, Big E was great, Heyman as usual. Bianca got a super reception and Becky asked a question I don't think has ever been asked at a contract signing before... "What if I...just don't sign it?" Fun segment too, I thought!
