Randy Orton : I’m the legend killer.
Vince McMahon : Hold my beer and watch this episode.
Really enjoyed the discussion on whether Elias is a babyface or heel. I like it with John and Wai are combative.
If Vince McMahon directed Home Alone Harry and Marv would stand triumphant. Excellent sentence from John
This show is fucking shit.
A cliffhanger ending last week, that gets a brief passing mention this week. Legends who randomly stand around in the back, staring at walls. Your U.S Champion, who hasnt lost in months, getting pinned with a 24/7 rollup. Goldberg challenging Drew McIntyre, which makes no fucking sense.
I try not to comment too specifically on things I didn’t watch. But when I looked up last night’s results on Cage Match and saw that three champions lost non-title matches (Asuka/Flair, Lashley, Hurt Biz), I figured that was enough information to form an opinion that this show probably sucked.
A minor point, but the other danger of having Drew poo-poo fighting Goldberg as being akin to fighting his dad is reminding everyone that said “dad” defeated their immortal murder clown to become Universal Champ less than a year ago.
