  1. This was a great review. Credit to Daydreamer Lex (A WWE fanatic you should check out: She does weekly reviews and they're really good) for having me find you as I was looking for evidence when watching one of her videos, I found it within one of your pasr videos, which was well done. So, I decided to watch this one as well. Keep it up! 😄

  2. I though HIAC was a pretty diabolical PPV, tbh. Orton/Rusev and Ziggler/Roode were basically average TV matches, no big event feel with the the wrong guy going over in the former match and the winner of the latter being utterly predictable. The title match was dire, no chemistry between Mahal, a guy with little talent to begin with and Nakamura, who is just being ruined by every aspect of the WWE machine. The Women's Title match and the US title match were OK, although concerning the latter AJ Styles is the only one worth watching IMO. And the TTT match was very good: on this card it stood out like an all-time classic (which I don't believe it really was).

    And the main eventwas just appalling. So predictable. As soon as the match was announced, you just knew precisely what you would get: a spotty match where an outstanding performer in Kevin Owens would take ages to overcome a 47-year-old who has NEVER been a full-time wrestler. And you just knew that SM would do a stupid stunt which made no sense in terms of winning the match. And just to top off the predictability, he did exactly the same stupid stunt which led to him losing against the Undertaker, just another layer of idiocy in this match. And rather than doing something different, they just booked the match with all those predictable aspects. Awful, awful, awful.

    It's time for Shane to realise that he should stop putting his wellbeing on the line to do these stunts which no longer have any value; we all know what he's going to do because it's the only thing he brings to the table (no pun intended). It must be in the McMahon genetic makeup to have an overblown opinion oftheir own worth or of how much people actually give a damn about them. He should just have a bit of respect for his young family and the great wrestlers he makes look weak as they struggle to defeat him; just give it up, Shane.

  3. Randy Orton should be pushing talent. Rusev deserves to be a big player on the main event scene. I hope him and corbin can cement themselves as the scary big guys on Smackdown. As for Orton his pacing in matches is the same as Jinders it's awkward and i find he brings down others he wrestles these days.

  4. I think that Styles lost the US Title so he can move onto the WWE championship. Maybe a triple-threat match at Survivor Series with Nakamura? Fingers crossed because that would actually be a good championship match and still doesn't blow the Style vs Nakamura one-on-one match that, surely, is planned for WM.

  5. This was actually really bad for bobby roode, he used the tights to roll up dolph for the win, you shouldn't have to use a "heel tactic" to beat someone like Dolph Ziggler? Not to mention he gets laid out by the Zig-Zag at the end of the match and Dolph ends up standing tall anyway after Bobby's debut, they're ruining all the NXT call-ups that Triple H has groomed into big stars or done a really good job in building their own personal brands giving the WWE Universe some insight into what they should expect from the new era of wrestlers HHH is promoting. I think this is leading up to a HHH v Mr. McMahon WrestleMania Match for the complete ownership of the company.

  6. Jinder has yet to have a feud where he can showcase his style (slow, methodical and hardhitting). The Orton matches were terrible in a sense that they are both slow, and as you said he just don't mesh well with Nakamura's striking heavy style.
