Personally, as much as I loved Seth lifting the title. I would have preferred a clean finish to the Reigns/lesner match. But I can see a fatal 4 way title match at extreme rules.

All in all good event. But I felt that hhh going over sting was a poor decision. And the dx v NwO angle diluted it. It became a shout to the Monday Night Wars.

But rock and Rosey V The Authority is best for business.

Now time for the best raw of the year.

They totally redeemed the horrid buildup to almost every match.

Also, don't care what anyone else says, NWO vs DX was my moment of the night.

Don't get me wrong, DX VS NwO was mint. But wouldn't a 10 man tag match have been better, HHH, HBK, X-Pac, Road Dog and Mr Ass Vs Sting, Hogan, Nash, Hall and DDP

The RKO will be in highlight reels for years to come, it was a thing of beauty.

I watched from Sting/HHH up to about halfway through Rusev/Cena... I say "watched", but I mean "had on in the background while I did other stuff". Then I went to bed. What I saw was very much like WrestleKingdom 9 for me: it was all perfectly cromulent, but didn't at all excite me. Increasingly, the only company I watch full shows from is Chikara. I'm not even kidding when I say it's the only noteworthy promotion with a decent grasp on storytelling.

Oh thank fuck I'm not the only CHIKARA fan on the boards anymore.

I need to watch the rest of it (went to bed after Sting) but I'm astounded by the night/day change over of opinion on the show. This time yesterday everyone was so down on it and now people are excited.

I'm not saying WWE turned water into wine but it's just fascinating to me how they totally exceeded expectations in almost every match. Even Undertaker looked healthier and more agile.

Also glad Reigns didn't win because now they get chance to build his character and build a connection. Rollins was ready. Reigns CAN be

I am kinda miffed about Seth Rollins choosing to win the World Title like that. I would've thought he would be so insidious as to wait until Reigns had won the strap only to lose it at the hands of Rollins a couple minutes later. That would've been a more logical choice in showing that Reigns wasn't ready to be World Champion. But then again, some would consider that bad for business, but when did WWE care what's best for business on the regime of the Auhority?

Love that the Authority was knocked down a peg by The Rock and Ronda Rousey. I haven't felt so excited since Stephanie McMahon was arrested for slapping Brie Bella. But with the no-compete clauses against the UFC that they give former talent when they 'future endeavor' them, why do they have UFC talent come on the show when they are barring CM Punk and Alberto del Rio from competing in the UFC for a period of a year after their termination as WWE wrestlers, when UFC isn't technically their competition? That doesn't make sense to me.

Some of Jericho Shaw's attitude is inspired by Seth Rollins...I am glad he is the champ now.
