They could have brought back Bad Blood or even The Great American Bash, but nope.

Idk if we have any watchers of NJPW, but I just want to say that the Dominion 6.11 main event between Okada and Omega was bonkers. On the downside, I wish we had a clear cut winner. They dragged the match on to a 60-minute time limit draw (which obviously means that Okada retains) but I love how both men pretty much sold it to look like they were literally dying of exhaustion. I especially liked that, at one point of the match, Bullet Club came down (aside from The Young Bucks who accompanied Kenny Omega to the ring and were already at ring side.) led by Cody Rhodes, who was about to throw in the towel for Omega but the Bucks stopped him. It told a hell of a story there.

Idk what are your guys' thoughts?

Samoa Joe literally stole a spot from my last match for GBOF. For this reason, I would like the decision overturned, and for Rose to advance to the Quarters.

For what it was, Joe vs Lesnar was a pretty decent match, but I honestly thought that they could've done more. For example, I wanted to see Joe suplex Lesnar. The two uranages were cool, but Joe's version of Suplex City would have been awesome.

Looks like now, we get Lesnar vs Reigns II at SummerSlam

Yeah, WWE is definitely bizzaro land where they boo Roman who's supposed to be the face and cheer Braun who's supposed to be the heel. I think Roman is more neutral than anything else because a face he definitely is not.

His match with Joe was pretty good, though

So...Seth Rollins's finisher, as of tonight, is called the Revolution Knee. I think we all know what this means.
