On the rap battle I’m pretty sure New Day either wrote the Bars for The Bar or just knew what was coming because you could see Xavier mouthing when they were up. Unrelated but in the Something to Wrestle episode about Cena, Bruce Prichard said Cena wrote Rikishi’s lines

Interesting… I didn’t notice. Was Xavier mouthing the “original” parts of the rap or just the lyrics to “Ice Ice Baby”? Because he’s (roughly) my age and I assure you that we can all do that.

Its refreshing to see really bad wrestling on tv after so much great wrestling. Shane looked worse than Jackie Gayda. Holy Christ was he bad.
