it's a good thing he's going to NXT, because there will be a huge adjustment in the style he's used to working in. The guy is stiff.


that being said, best wrestler in the world... minor leagues... outrage...

I hope the "WWE" style doesn't neuter him too much, but Bryan, Punk, Rollins, Ambrose etc while they had to pair down some of their stuff, still can work good to great matches even with the WWE style of wrestling. There will be an adjustment period though no doubt.

Bryan before the injury was starting to become very cookie-cutter. Hopefully when he comes back he has some fresh stuff.

I noticed them too since that guy mentioned how they are present in every arena. Must be a bunch of rod shaped structures in each areana lights, hand rails etc.

Aw man, they were just about to show cloesups of the rod.

The fact that they kind of just dissappeared is on par with the writing nowadays.

Lana seems genuinely upset. She's good at this. Zeb was in 'nam. That's great.

A foreign heel getting angry at USA chants??? Ground breaking stuff.

Although Lana plays her role perfectly. If only the divas that wrestle had half her acting and mic skills

This Rusev vs Swagger feud is good stuff. It actually makes sense rather than having Big E come down with a american flag that seemed so forced.

Nothing shows the importance if a match like previewing battle ground in the middle of it.

Rusev/Swagger is classic old school wrestling. I love it.

Hilarious that the Sting hype was just for a video game preorder. Still cool/weird seeing him in wwe tv.

I hope Heyman didn't actually quit and this is just a lead up to Brock's return.

Maybe it's just me, but Y2J's schtick is falling extremely flat this time around. He seems like a middle aged rock star that's forgotten how to be cool.

(That's exactly what he is)
