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.

Having watched it again I am not convinced he meant it but it was hilarious

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.
