My Thoughts: overall a killer show. Seth Rollins captures that deranged mindset in a way I’ve seen only Jimmy Jacobs, Steve Austin & HHH do. Not sure what Bray Wyatt is being set up for. Personally, I’m gonna love seeing the possibilities for a Nikki Cross/Alexa Bliss feud after the current angle. Very reminiscent of Alexa & Nia Jax. For Steve Gerweck & the rest of the site, this is “The Real Deal” Billy Rouse. Goodnight!
