this bray wyattt / miz storyline is just bordering on ridiculous, using a child in this storyline is just crossing the line, and also isn’t it stalking when someone comes into your house and enters your child’s room, this is just too far

after a 10 min match with corbin and kofi, it breaks down into a tag match, why didn’t we have this match from the beginning anyway, why waste our time with the singles match

I question why you are watching, if you think this is too far. This is not the first time a child has been used in an angle. It’s not the first time someone has been stalked. It’s not the first time someone’s house has been broken into.

We’ve seen guys commit heinous acts and not be arrested. We’ve seen necrophilia shit. This is far from being too far and I’ll go as far as saying, this has been one of WWE’s best stories in a long time.

Great show @johnpollock and @wai0937 - I appreciated the splitting the show format and getting two reviews in - always appreciate your work!

Yeah I don’t have a problem with the Wyatt/Miz stuff either. If they’re going to be ridiculous, go all the way in. And at least Miz is a better actor to than Rollins.

Rest of the show was pretty bad. It’s sad to see Zayn, Nakamura and Cesaro stuck in the same place they’ve been for years

Thanks, hope people enjoyed the format so we could cover both shows.

so in your opinion, nothing is off limits, that’s entertainment isn’t it, you must be glad your kids watch this type of crap, I just think they should use some restraint, I thought this was supposed to be pg13
