    Good main event but would’ve preferred the DQ to keep Riddle strong after all that build. Kinda flat it was just a clean win for Reigns

    I get that it’s Minnesota, but it feels way too early to break that glass already.

    I didn’t see Brock returning tonight and while I usually like his returns this one was “meh” I’m super over Brock/Roman.

    To start, this is not an inspired choice to go with Lesnar but…

    Presumably his top option to face Reigns for Summerslam is indefinitely on the shelf. If he was going to try to get inspired and go with another option that was fresh, well that person got hurt a little over two weeks ago. The early scuttle is that Lesnar became an option three weeks ago. I get that line of thinking in the sense that Summerslam is in a stadium and I can’t trust WWE’s booking to cook someone up in essentially a month for that timeline. They probably only have that amount of time because they’ll be too focused on building the competitors for MITB. That’s taking everyone else out of the title picture, outside of maybe 1-2 people who aren’t in MITB and have nothing to do. I’m guessing if they’re not in MITB or don’t have anything to do, they’re seen as low on the totem pole and aren’t worth a damn to Vince when it comes to building for a stadium show. So if it’s not any of those people, there’s not many options left.

    They never finished the feud with Rollins/Reigns from Royal Rumble though Seth didnt win by pinfall he has the only win over Roman at a premium event in a long time.

    I feel like they could have went Drew winning MITB (because he probably will) and cashing in on Reigns at SummerSlam after Roman smashes random midcarder X. Drew takes the loss after interference which results in the rematch at “Clash at the Castle”.

    As for Brock, I had him as the fallback in case Dwayne can’t/won’t do Mania next Spring. Rumble time, Brock’s music hits, there’s your Mania main event. :shrugs:

    At this point, it’s gotta be a viable option just to redo Mania 31 and have Rollins win the briefcase to cash in on them again. He can cash in, pin Lesnar this time and spare Reigns eating the pin. Reigns can go away for a bit or do whatever they want him to do until they try with Rock, Lesnar can go after Rollins for a bit. Since Rhodes is out, might as well use this injury to elevate Rollins and build him up so Rhodes can get his revenge and the championship he desperately craves. Reigns/Rhodes would probably be cool, but Rollins taking responsibility for the injury creates a desire to see him get his…even though Rhodes has beaten his ass three times already haha.

    The two biggest current names in the company, albeit part-timers at this stage in their careers. The only way this feud “ends” is if one walks away and officially retires. I’m as tired of Brock as anybody here, but as long as Vince keeps dangling massive checks to work a handful of dates a year, we’re going to keep seeing Lesnar.

    The next big name is sitting at home with a neck brace, probably never to wrestle again. AJ/Randy/Lashley/Sheamus are all on the back nines of their careers, the company is going to need to build up Drew/Seth/Kevin/Cody to hold the fort until the next generation (Steveson/Theory) gets established.

    Now feels like a great time to see if the older midcard “tag guys” (Riddle/Montez Ford/Xavier Woods) have any singles chops rather than running back Lesnar/Reigns for the hundredth time…

    Has Lashley faced Roman for the title? I feel like he hasn't but I could be wrong.

    When Roman said that “There’s nobody left”, it made me curious. I totally understand sports entertainment hyperbole but still, I had to do some research.

    Since becoming The Tribal Chief and winning the Universal title from The Fiend (Payback, August 30/20), Roman has successfully defended against the following:

    -Jey Uso
    -Drew McIntyre
    -Kevin Owens
    -Daniel Bryan
    -Edge
    -Cesaro
    -Rey Mysterio
    -John Cena
    -Finn Balor
    -Brock Lesnar
    -Big E
    -Seth Rollins (DQ loss)
    -Goldberg

    Riddle v. Roman was incredible.

    Genuinely shocked at Lesnar's return. I wasn't sure if he was gone, retired, injured, etc.

    I'm not negative to them fighting again. They needed a huge match for Summerslam and when was the last time we saw Lesnar in a Last Man Standing match? At least they spread out their battles as opposed to every other week wrestling and then 3 straight ppvs against each other all in a calendar year. Plus I came up during a time where you saw Hogan and Savage feud 5-6 times, Austin and Taker wrestling 100 times and feuding for 2 years straight it seemed.

    Watching Smackdowns and Raws without reading results, or rumors, or spoilers, is just a refreshing experience. We are just glued to news so it's really difficult to avoid them. Yeah, it was a genuine surprise when I saw Lesnar. Gives me hope for the future.

    I see you got new ring music! Might take some getting used to because to me you’ll always be Donald. Why Dave Wyndorf out of interest?

    Nattie’s Ronda get-up is amusing.

    Dave Wyndorf is the lead singer of the best band on the planet, Monster Magnet. If I only had to listen to Monster Magnet for the rest of my life, I'd be quote ok with that.

    Five Takeaways:
    Heyman’s promo at the start of the show was confusing. He was so hung up on the fact that he didn’t want Reigns vulnerable at Summerslam due to the winner of MITB, so the resolution is to make sure Sheamus and McIntyre aren’t in the match? That doesn’t make sense because there’s still competitors that will be threats. This line of thinking somehow led to McIntyre and Sheamus wasting two hours to not lose their MITB status and it took the Undisputed Usos down a peg, by losing clean (more or less).

    They’re getting father and farther away from the Takeover Dallas aura between Nakamura and Zayn but they’re still really fun together. Zayn in MITB makes more sense at this point than Nakamura. It would be an intriguing tease to see how they’d navigate things if Zayn won the briefcase. I figure an eventual massive betrayal from The Bloodline could lead to a turn for the Honorary Uce. Either that or he can just continue as a sleazy heel. Regardless, he’s a vital asset that fills minutes on Smackdown. We’re gonna need more Zayn/Cowboy Brock segments going into Summerslam.

    Neither Ronda or Natalya had the best material to work with, which isn’t a surprise. Natalya surprisingly displayed more heel charisma than I’ve seen in a while as she leaned into bagging on Ronda. Meanwhile, Ronda just really delivered her dialogue without much emotion. This build has been a bit better than I thought it would be, but I don’t have a lot of optimism towards Ronda after this feud.

    It feels like GUNTHER has gone through at least three themes since getting called up. Pick one and go with it. Sheesh. The evil foreigner gimmick is very outdated but it probably works way too conveniently for GUNTHER. That also provides a story and motivation for the champion and the challengers that will rise up. That’s more purpose than the championship has seen in quite some time so while this is low-hanging fruit, beggars can’t be choosers in terms of midcard stories.

    A bad McAfee promo will eventually come but it wasn’t here on this show. The guy always delivers when they give him a microphone with promo time. He’s always in control and he knows how to get the crowd into the moment. For better or worse, he’s one of the bigger stars in WWE so it makes sense to utilize his star power to try to fill a stadium. McAfee and Corbin are pretty good pals IRL so I imagine they’ll put together a good match. That would be welcomed rather than just having McAfee play the hits to wow the crowd. Speaking of, the crowd certainly liked the idea of the match. Doesn’t make a lot of sense though, since Corbin lost the feud with Moss, gets this setup for Summerslam and Moss is just stuck backstage working out.

    Personally would prefer that Zayn stay heel and descend further into madness because he’s just too entertaining at the heel. If the Bloodline betray him, he could always just go back to this being another conspiracy theory against him.

    I lost hope that Dupri was going to show last night then he appeared. I'm leaning towards him representing himself as the male model but I'd like to be wrong.

    I was thinking it was going to be himself ultimately but the fact that he's talking about clients in the plural sense seems to kill that possibility. I'm still hoping it's Mace and Mansoor like the dark segments as i think both guys have potential and having seen them on UUDD, they also can be charismatic and zany which could really help sell the gimmick, too.

    Mansoor especially was fantastic on UUDD. Singing “My Sacrifice” forgetting they don’t have the rights and playing Tekken one-handed plus nose!

    He’d make a great cocky heel. The only slight possible drawback is they want to keep him face due to their Saudi Arabia shows but also they may not just care as he’ll probably still get cheered regardless and they’re making money off the show anyway.
