    From what I heard Ronda may face Nikki Bella at Evolution and so I guess they’ll feud over the title

    I know - that’s my point, it’s ridiculous. They keep offering me a subscription for 99p and I don’t want it. They’ve got a roster full of talent but just keep serving the same old crap.

    Ronda is a) an actual mainstream star
    b) is actually pretty damn good ring , better than anybody expected her , she reminds me of Kurt Angle in that she immediately got wrestling

    She absolutely deserves the title

    A few thoughts .....

    I have no issues with Ronda winning, it was just a squash wasn't a good pay off to something like they've been building for months.

    Seth winning is great but now we have the age old question of where do go from here with Ziggler? I knew he'd be dropping the belt when I saw those Rick Rude style tights.

    While Becky winning would have been the biggest pop of the night I do at least like how they used this to fire up her character. Personally I'm tired of the plucky face she's been for years now. I just think wwe need to time things better. Had this happened at a smaller event then Sunmerslam could have been the huge blow out for Becky and Charlotte. Same goes for Bryan and Miz.

    On that.....

    The real star of the Bryan Miz match? Graves. His commentary was utterly amazing during this match. He's the perfect heel commentator.

    Demon squashing Baron? I'm good with it. I read it much more as a surprise attack and a relentless assault Corbin just couldn't defend against. Makes a lot of sense story wise.

    The KO match? Literally what was the point, just to remind everyone about the briefcase? Again, Owens had special gear for the match so of course he loses. I thought maybe KO would steal the briefcase or something to ruin any cash in attempts but no, just a good old squash. What the hell KO has done to deserve this booking is beyond me.

    And the main event! There's one reason they went with that Strowman segment.....to keep the crowd around to see what happens, otherwise we might have seen people leaving early again! It was smart and I like how Brock tried to neutralise the situation but again all those matches, all that build for this?

    The best of Summerslam was IMO, amazing, really good wrestling, compelling story lines.

    The worst of Summerslam was top tier trash and sadly, just more of the same schizophrenic booking from WWE.

    Just a few thoughts on the good things from last night...trying to stay positive

    Bryan v miz was the match of the night. Properly booked, executed and commentated by graves. Not worth the resub to the network but the match of the night by far.

    Balor squash was the only squash that should have happened and it worked for the return of demon balor. Paint looked superb, really like whoever did that one.

    Rollins win was cool but like someone else said there is no story now and ziggler will become an afterthought again.

    Becky heel turn was much needed/overdue and will make her getting the belt that much sweeter.


    I dont have time to type out all the bad but I will just say the worst match of the night was bliss v rousey. Both those women were capable of putting on a show stopper and instead we get a divas era squash. Fitting the bella shitstains were out there afterwards for who knows why. Just complete and utter trash of a match. I thought the womens division was done with this shit :lol
