Is this the least interesting, least hyped card they've put together in a while?

Breezango vs Bludgeon Brothers

Lumberjack Match: Natalya vs Charlotte ©

Usos © vs Rusev/English vs Gable/Benjamin vs New Dat

Baron Corbin © vs Dolph Ziggler vs Bobby Roode

AJ Styles © vs Jinder Mahal

Nakamura/Orton vs Sami Zayn/KO w/ Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan as guest referees.

The only thing I am interested in seeing is if Bryan turns heel. I’ll probably just watch the main event in the morning.

We say that every other show and it usually turns out good. The only thing that looks outright bad is the three-way, and Nattie-Charlotte will probably be boring, but the rest looks promising.

The card doesn't do much for me, but over the last year the low expectation cards have tended to overdeliver.

I've got incredibly low expectations, which usually leads to a pleasant surprise.  But this is one hell of a tough lineup.

Imagine what the buy rate for this would have been in the PPV era

That's what I was thinking about. Usually on-paper bad cards turn out to be good, but we never know.

 

Hyped for heel Mojo

Corey Graves: "Dolph Ziggler may be the greatest in-ring performer of all time" Oh my God.

With Bryan involved I expect the main event will have tons of heat if nothing else. I think there is a good chance no one turns tonight and they stretch this out

Pre-show match was fun, as they typically are.

I was hoping they wouldn’t do the old predictable “steal the pin” finish in that match and would just move on from Corbin as US champ. Ziggler is what he is but maybe it can freshen up that title at least a little.

Corbin vs. Roode vs. Ziggler 

 

- This dramatically over-delivered after a slow start.  Big spots that were well chained together and captured the crowd.  I even appreciated their wrinkle on the steal the pin trope they often rely on.  Really fun opener.

 

***1/4

Well I was wrong about the three-way, as that was actually pretty good. The crowd was definitely into it and it didn't overstay its welcome. And the finish was clever.

I think it is impossible to freshen up Ziggler at this point.   

 

Damn good match though  

 

So wait both refs are going to be in the ring at the same time?   So I guess now we can see a double pin?

Btw, has anyone had a more strange year booking wise than Corbin? Constantly comes up short against Ambrose at the beginning of the year, wins mitb, then is completely buried while losing his cash in, then wins .US title only to lose it to a guy who never wins and has been around forever

Between 3 hours of dealing with Saxton and the Steelers game about an hour ago, Corey Graves might punch someone tonight  :lol:

 

Okay I am confused does this look like two separate matches going on at the same time?

Those Chaos Theory suplexes Gable was throwing were insane.

For sure. I meant just fresher matches around that belt.
