TBH Dillinger/English is the best possible match for a pre show. Both are great opening acts and are over with the crowds, but it's pretty much their ceiling.

Actually that was pretty good. Positively surprised.

Is there a backstory to Dillinger's stupid hairdo?

I think it's fair to say that Randy and jinder will have the best Punjabi prison of the two previous. The two before were hardly **** star classics.

I love that WWE still put the warning at the start of their PPVs even though it's slightly out of date due to the WWE network.

WOW.  That powerbomb on the floor!  Slow start but business has indeed picked up.

I caught most of that tag match. It needed to be about 40% more Tag-Team-Y and 30% less Triple Threat Guy On The Floor-y.

I thought the tag title match started out a bit slow and bland, but from the Usos cleaning house on the floor it was pretty damn great.  A few big near falls that the crowd absolutely bought into, but not so many that it became overdone.  Some incredible timing on the cutoffs and big spots, and I appreciate that they even had Kofi MIA for a while after that powerbomb rather than returning quickly and rendering it meaningless.  The finish felt a bit sudden after the last Woods save, but hardly a major flaw.  Fun opener!  

 

***1/2

Really good match although excessive with the punishment that Woods took. But the crowd loved it and that is all that matters. New Day winning was kind of their only choice given how weak the tag division is on the babyface side after this feud

 

This is really going to be interesting because Nakamura really needs a good singles match.  Dolph wasn't it.   Luckily Corbin can lose since he has the briefcase

The Usos are quietly climbing the ranks of the WWEs best tag teams ever at this point. Heck, how many WWE tag teams have had there resume working as both faces and heels? Most of the best were always just one.

Demolition. Hart Foundation. That's it, I think.

I made it about this far through the Nak match and while I think a bearhug is a good heat-generating move for Corbin, I decided I'm going to go back and watch that Dunne/Bate takeover match that people really liked instead. I'm just not good at modern WWE PPVs I guess. There's no urgency anymore and as much as I like you guys, without that, the shared live experience is good for Mania and little else. Nothing feels like it matters anymore.

This Corbin match is as boring as the opener was entertaining.  I don't get his push at all.  He's nothing in the ring and on the mic, along with a zero in look charisma.  Just baffling.
