There's just something about Coach that sucks the excitement out of everything he talks over. He's like a more boring version of Kevin Kelly. Percy Watson annoys me greatly but I give him a slight pass due to experience levels.

Miz is legit one of the greatest in the world. One of the top heel acts, one of the greatest promos and actually a very good wrestler. Why wouldn't anyone not consider him a star?

Part of me things the right decision here is have Miz go over and move Rollins back up to the main event cause he's a legitimately hot act (and he's been the best he's been since the Shield days this year), but I can't see them doing that with the brand split.

 

The thought of that scares me, because I remember what he was like when he was the WWE Champion, but maybe that is because of the stupid "authority" angle, which seemed to never end.

 

 

 

 

 

As someone who was heavily anti Rollins and am still not the biggest fan in the world of him by any means, I think he's performed very well in basically all of his big matches this year. More or less, if you ask me if I'd like to see Rollins or Balor get pushed up the card, I'd go Rollins strongly. Though that's partially me not liking Balor at all.

Well I guess it depends on whether Miz would have to go back to RAW.   If not then either Jeff Hardy is going back to RAW or they are having 2 secondary titles on their show

 

Although it does help delay Miz vs Bryan until Wrestlemania

I'm genuinely surprised the crowd is this hot. Hope they keep it up! Making the show more enjoyable.

Someone just posted a format sheet of the show online. Roman/Joe is going on last

Yeah, and in my opinion Percy Watson is improving by leaps and bounds.

Yeah, this crowd is hot.  Also, I am actually surprised how popular Rollins is as a babyface.  He's crazy popular lately...since the Shield reunion, really.

I'm pretty sure Seth Rollins is my least favorite wrestler on Earth.

Mickie is the #1 worker in the company at the moment. She's been on fire this year. 

 

Not as much buzz for the show as I was expecting, looks pretty good on paper. But I also didn't watch the GRR so others could be more burnt out that I am. I'm attempting a live blog:

And they're working the figure four perfectly. The old shit still works.

They 100% had me at the SKF finish.

I will say I'm one "Seth dropping the roll through Superplex" away from actually liking him.

 

Okay, kicking out of the Skull Crushing Finale twice is too much.

I'm really digging this match but I'll never like that Superplex spot. You don't just no-sell a Superplex. Even if it's not 1985 anymore, that's still a big move.

Man I was loving the match and then Rollins did that stupid fucking superplex to falcon arrow spot and then went overboard with that kickout. Oh well, still very fun.

The finish to me is kind of spoiled, since I can't see Miz winning and taking the I/C Championship to SDL.  I suppose they could do it, but if Raw doesn't have the I/C Title, they basically have no Men's singles titles.

This match encapsulates the best and the worst Rollins has to offer.
