Brian in New Jersey.

I’m always going to think more favorably towards this event because of the strength of the Daniel Bryan arc throughout. I very much enjoyed his match with Triple H and found the main event very satisfying after everything that went down since SummerSlam 2013. I didn’t find the rest of the show as good, but I liked the feel-good win for Cesaro, the Shield babyface win early on, and the utter shock of Taker getting pinned. John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt holds more emotional heft for me these days. As the first WWE PPV I watched through the WWE Network (not counting NXT Arrival), the service largely held up for me with minimal pixelation.
