Thinking back on the show I think the build for many matches was poor and the order of the matches killed the momentum a bit but the in ring stuff wasn't actually that bad. The IC match was very strong as was the AJ match. The Charlotte Asuka match was awesome and the Rousey match exceeded expectations.

The even was highly unpredictable. Going on PP odds at the start of the start of the show the favourites didn't win any of the following. IC US, Smackdown Women or Smackdown Tag matches.

The AJ-Nakamura match was not strong. It was only ok, which given the way it as positioned as a dream match both by the WWE and by hardcore fans meant it was severely underwhelming.

I didnít see the IC match so of what I saw only the Rousey match was an unqualified success, as the ending of the Asuka match was a puke worthy swerve.

I thought was the AJ-Nakamura match was strong considering it was face v face. With the heel turn I expect better possibly at Backlash but I thought it was a good match which was maybe hurt a little from its position on the card. I think we can agree to disagree on the Charlotte v Asuka match which I thought was match of the night.

Looking forward to seeing who gets called up on Tuesday. I was hoping Damo might get the nod but rumour has it that's off till after summerslam.

Spoke to soon as Sanity minus Nikki have been called up to the main roster. Always great to see a local lad doing well.

It was a planned skit that is a call back to a real fŻck up he had falling over carrying a barrel when he was on NXT.

With Killian Dain now on the main roster that's 4 Irish superstars across the two main shows. Think probably only Canada and the US (maybe Mexico) would have more. Hopefully some of them get a push as the year goes on.

He had it for 11 years and unfortunately it's back he said. Best of luck to him.

Wrestlemania on tomorrow night in the MetLife Stadium. For the first time ever a womans match is the main event, it helps when you have the star power of Ronda Rousey on the card. Ireland's own Becky Lynch aka Rebecca Quin is hotly tipped to win.

Brock Lesnar is tipped to lose the universal title but that was teased before and didn't happen. Kurt Angle having his last match and the choice of Corbin for that match is a strange one. Will Kofi Kingston's big push in recent weeks end up with a world title?

Last nights NXT very good again, won't get many if any matches as good on Sunday.

rousey might be the star power but Lynch is the reason its the main event, went down the idgaf route Austin did and ran with it. the fans are dying to follow people that relate and lynch has connected ala Bryan an few years ago.

Some nutjob tried to attack Bret Hart during his Hall of Fame speech last night - it didn't take long for about a dozen of the wrestlers to kick the shit out of him

What was the thought behind that? I heard someone say on twitter it was because of the female main event but it doesn't make sense to attack bret hart for it
