Easily the most excited I've been about a WWE main event since I literally can't remember. Not sure it will be great, but a dream match in an era desperately short on dream matches.

If this show lives up to the build, at least for the top matches, then it could be WWE show of the year. The only match I don't expect anything at least decent from is Rollins vs Wyatt but that's a filler match and a filler feud so it's not a big deal. I hope Joe and Lesnar can deliver on the hype. It went from being a semi-interesting routine title match to a must see main event over the last month or so.

Joe/Lesnar sounds like a great match both Stiff workers should be interesting. Hope Joe destroys Lesnar and takes the title.

 

Sure theres talk about Lesnar/Strowman headlining Summerslam but it doesnt sound as great as tonights match.

Excited for the show but not excited for The Hardy Boys Vs. Sheamus/Cesaro getting a guaranteed 30-minutes.

Tbh, as good as this build has been Strowman vs Lesnar is possibly the combo I'm most excited about on the whole WWE roster so I really hope it happens.

Really? I thought both of their prior matches were really good and don't see why this should be any different. Getting 30 minutes doesn't bother me either. It's not like it's the Ascension vs Breezango or whatever (but imagine that!)

I'm hoping for a fun show and with the line up it should be. Lesnar vs Joe could be crazy if we get one of those wild Lesnar matches where there is more leeway for blood and other atypical WWE stuff

I have no issues with the name. It's a little weird that they're reaching back to the 1950s for a song, but at least it's a departure from late-90s/early-2000s time period they get stuck in sometimes.

Pretty hyped for this show and I haven't even been watching RAWs the last few weeks. Hope it delivers, card looks pretty good.

I am super excited for this show as there is potential up and down the card.  Joe has been very underwhelming on the main roster thus far, but the build for this match has been terrific and I have no reason do doubt a Brock match given time with an opponent who can push him.

 

The ambulance gimmick can certainly bring things down, but there is no reason to doubt that Reigns & Strowman will kill each other along the way.  

 

Sasha & Alexa apparently do not care for each other at all which will hopefully translate to a fiery title match.

 

Neville's been one of the best performers in the company this year and if that match is given time there's no reason it can't be great and a sleeper MOTN.

 

The Iron Man match may very well be hit or miss, but hey, it could hit. Something to look forward to until its not. 

 

Miz/Ambrose and Rollins/Hocus Pocus are a great chance to snack, catch up on things online and do other things.  Let's do it!

Should be a great show

 

Neville over Tozawa (Cruiser Title)

Cesaro/Sheamus over Hardyz (3-2) (30 Min Iron Man, RAW Tag Title)

Miz over Ambrose (IC Title)

Big Cass over Enzo

Rollins over Wyatt

Bliss over Sasha (RAW Women's Title)

Strowman over Reigns (Ambulance) (based off the betting lines I read about recently)

Brock over Joe (Universal Title)

All I hoping for is Strowman beating Reigns and a competitive match between Joe and Brock.   Samoa Joe winning the title would be so shocking it isn't worth hoping for.   Just let it be a long painful war

 

Everything else would be gravy.

This is the most heat I have heard for a 205 match since they began this project.

Well I guess that leaves us with Cedric Alexander as the next and basically last challenger.  Unless they are going to go months on this like the Aries feud.

Neville/Tozawa was on its way to being really great when they went to the finish.  Still amazing how easily Tozawa can fire up any crowd.  The man has purple rope immunity.

One of the jokes I saw on Twitter is that given the name all finishes should be based on nut shots  :lol:

That was the best Bray match in quite some time.  Not great, but it very much over delivered.  Rollins was bumping all over the place to him over along the way and much of it looked very good.  Not sure this is a feud we need to continue, but certainly feels like one that's getting a round 2.
