    So I like the looks of this card, until you count that there are thirteen matches on one night(!). I don't know if anything is going to be added on Smackdown, but I hope not.

    (And I still hope that they get a new photoshop guy, 'cos the Smackdown women's title match is scary.)

    A few too many rehashed/repackaged feuds...even AJ-Joe was a notable TNA feud but it's the first time they go 1-on-1 in WWE. Explain to me again why we're getting another Corbin-Balor match?

    I actually think (mostly just praying) that they finally pull the trigger on Revival. Revival didn't eat the pin on Monday and B team won off a shatter machine.. PLEASE VINCE..DO IT!

    I think it is on the pre-show, but it wasn't listed as such on the website when I was getting the graphics earlier so I left it on the main card for now.

    AJ/Joe will hopefully be MOTN and amazing
    Reigns/Lesnar will be fun to see how badly the crowd sh*** all over it
    Bryan/Miz could be good and tell a good story
    Alexa/Ronda might be alright, Ronda always seems to sports entertain!
    Seth/Ziggler have been very disappointing considering what they could have done in the ring.

    One thing for sure is that TakeOver will be much better than the WWE event the next night. Such is tradition

    I don't like when the MITB briefcase is put at risk before its' actual purpose is realized.....Braun should be able to cash it in. Hopefully he can on Sunday after retaining against KO.

    It'd really suck if he lost it, he's got nothing left to prove.

    I like the card but it's going to suffer like WM by being toooooo long. Card is definitely nice, though.

    Miz
    Owens
    New Day
    Nakamura
    Rollins
    Cedric
    Carmella
    Alexa
    Brock

    I think this is the reason why every WWE PPV looks horrible in comparison to a much more compact Takeover or even ROH/NJPW/Impact PPVs. It's just to damn long and the quality is not there the whole way through even though there are some great highlights.

    NXT is nice because they still jam the card.

    The matches aren't long unless they feel they need to be.

    Like Bryan/Miz should be able to do a 10-15 minute match, and it'd be great and you hit all the storytelling angles you need. Instead, WWE has it go an extra 10 minutes and it adds in these slow periods and it kills crowds.

    Roman and Brock, realistically should go either 5-10 minutes, or it should go 30-35 and be like a grueling spectacle match. But it probably go 15. 10 of it being Brock destroying Roman, and then the last 5 is Roman forgetting about the first 10 minutes and hitting 5 spears.

    I want Owens to win so badly, not because i don't like Strowman but because I'm tired of how much of a geek they're making Owens look.

    Also because I'm sorta over the Monster destroys all of his opponents to keep the Title angle.

    I want an Owens, Rollins, Ambrose type champion.

    Braun has to win a title first before you lump him in with Lesnar.....at least Braun fights on the regular and doesn't hide for months. He'd likely be just as active if/when they put a real belt on him.

    Yeah, I think I've officially decided that I don't want to see Braun as Champion.

    In fact, I don't really want to see any of Brock, Roman or Braun as the Main Champion.


    Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Dean Ambrose, Bobby Roode, Bray Wyatt, Drew McIntyre, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and none of them will probably touch the title for what? The next year? They are going to probably put the title on Braun this Sunday, and then Roman will eventually beat him, and then holy damn, they are going to give Roman the payoff reign of a lifetime.

    It's been the same 3 guys in the main event for what? The past year and a half it feels like? Sure, guys get random shots, but they are just temporary.

    Yeah, but it is going to be the same thing we saw with Brock, just more frequently.

    Whoever steps in with him will get destroyed, unless it's Roman Reigns.

    Rinse and Repeat.

    I think I may even prefer Roman Reigns as Champion over Braun because at least it starts the clock on Roman's massive reign sooner.

    I'm kind of over Finn Balor too. He's too "Happy to be there" for my liking. Great in ring, but everything outside of that... Meh.
