Yes, I agree that it was long but give me Asuka vs Charlotte for an hour and I’ll be happy. I feel these two are magic together.

I wonder if the reason they’ve shot the Edge VS Orton match already is because they want to add some cinematic elements to it.

For example dramatic music, different cutaways as well as maybe using slow motion shots on a potential Spear or RKO. They could have that heartbeat kind of sound effects cut with some members of the crowd with their hands on their faces.

John is definitely right about the crowd going to be insufferable. It wouldn’t surprise me if it was micro managed as to what motions to do and what to say

I can’t wait to listen to this show. I’ve heard some people saying, it could be the greatest episode of Rewind-A-Raw ever.

Chris Jericho teaming up with redacted should be a good one
