Overall I don’t care about most of these results.

But I am surprisingly sad that Sheamus is on SmackDown which will keep him away from continuing his quest for the Intercontinental Title that has alluded him.

It does go to show what a good job WWE has done rehabilitating Sheamus and the IC title that I was invested in his pursuit of the championship and feuds/partnership with Drew against Gunther.

Why did they literally tease for weeks and weeks that teams and stables could be broken up and none were?

Who made the picks for each brand?

Why did RAW get 15 wrestlers and SD get two in the “supplemental” picks? :joy:

None of it makes sense, as predicted.
