Good show. Reigns and McIntyre were great. Street Profits singing HBK theme was really funny, too. I did find the Undertaker farewell a little disappointing.

The Profits and New Day was one WOW move after another.  It seemed like a little bit of passing the torch, which it eventually will be.

 

I think the Pandemic limited what they could do with Taker.

Definitely my favorite match, though Roman/Drew was really, really good. 

 

Zayn/Lashley surprised me. I didn't expect that to be good, but they really pulled through. I like seeing "weasel shit just never ends up working" matches.

Lashley and Keith Lee last night was also very good.

 

Sheamus and Riddle was terrific.  Good Raw show last night.

The WWE finally has moved away from Drew and Orton.   Bray Wyatt is next for Orton.

Wasn't Sheamus close to Retirement because of injury when he was tagging with Cesaro?

Yes. Not sure what happened, but I guess he felt good enough to go.

He's got Spinal Stenosis like Edge, Paige and Steve Austin. Depends on the area specifically you have it, the muscle build up supporting the area etc. how dangerous it is.

 

It was bad enough for Paige she couldn't wrestle one more match. Edge similarly had to back out right away, but apparently has built up enough to get cleared for some work. S is apparently ok wherever it is for now, but WILL have his career shortened a la Austin, so he might not have to bow out right now, but it literally could be any day. Especially if he takes a bump in the wrong spot.

I mean a month or so ago he had that falls count anywhere match with Big E, I'm sure that match did a lot to get him out the door quicker.  He took some big bumps in that one.

I thought the same thing at the time. I'm not sure where he has it, Stenosis can either be in the neck or lower back I think, and I know he either had or was looking at neck surgery back in like 2017. Could be it's far away from his previous injury it's not a big deal, I think Austin has had some similar surgery before and was still active. I don't know how much time he's got left, but he'll definitely be out earlier than he should.

 

He's one of the ones I'm expecting to take on some more roles in Hollywood actually. Would make a great like muscle henchman for a bad guy in an action movie. I think Alexa makes the jump too, but I think it's cause she's actually a good actress, this whole storyline has brought that out in her even more.

Suppodsedly, but hye did some things last night that he hasn't done in years.  Riddle helped for sure, but Sheamus more than did his share.

NXT delivered again last night with War Games.  The main event was excellent.  UA vs. McAfee's group was terrific.  All the other matches were good too.

McAfee took a hell of a bump. Off the top of the cage and no one caught him.

Yes he did.  Of all the non wrestlers that have appeared over the years, he ranks near the top.

Yeah I agree. Can’t think of anyone better than him. He can also cut a promo.

i worded it that way, because I assumed I was missing someone.  I have thought about it and no one comes to mind.

I can't think of anyone outside of the industry that really captured...like...the entire aura of wrestling the way McAfee does. 

 

I mean...Rousey, MAYBE?
