This was a really hit or miss show.

I hated the opener and what they’re doing with Miro. Just all of it fell flat. Sabian is way too green for TV and the paring with Miro didn’t work. Miro needs to be on his own.

After a few pretty good weeks, the women’s match completely fell apart. This was extremely sloppy.

I also think Matt Hardy needs to just go away for a while. He can barely move and his mic work sucked this week.

But that main event kicked ass and I also really liked the Cassidy/Lee match and the return of Cody.

Anything where MJF and Jericho interact is gold so I loved that also. Good match with Page and Uno, Page looked really solid in the ring tonight.

Fun show but there were a lot of down points this week

It’s crazy to think of where MJF was a year ago. Now, he’s very near the top of the card. He comes across as an equal to Jericho, and has a legit claim to a title rematch.
