    Kingston should have won, I’ve always liked Moxley but he’s nowhere near as good as 85%of the roster (My Opinion).

  2. Yoyo says:

    I understand why Page lost. They have done a great job with him. I think they can build on his character. I see him as the future Shawn Michaels of the company.

    I was also happy to see Thunder Rosa return.

    Cody is an amazing. Putting over Allen is huge. I like Darby having a run and some fresh defenses. (That belt still is so damn ugly. It isn’t growing on me.)

    Thank Goodness for Sammy. He is a star.

    MJF VS Jericho just continued the story. The match was ok.

    Mox VS Kingston was great. I honestly wished they would have made Kingston a transitional Champion. It would not have hurt Moxley. Kingston has the best non verbal communication skills in wrestling… His verbal promo skills may be the best as well. If he had won I would have lost it. Maybe next time. I wish I paid more attention to him 10 or 15 years ago.

    One day he will be the most over baby face in the company. Just don’t do it yet.
