At this point the post that has followed mostly all the PPV's since the summer and after staying focused on only one aspect of last months PPV we now expand back to covering three parts of the show. We have three different items to speak of right now. So let's get er going:
Triple Threat Tag Team Ladder Match: Not sure what to say about the match that really defied expectations. I said it in the PPV Predictions prior to the PPV that if given the right amount of time and they definitely did that and more. Seeing the match deliver is really great and though the New Day retained the title I am not mad, because the match did a great job to spotlight the division and event though the other teams lost it showed strength even when the division is really weak. The highlight of the match was by far when Kalisto hit one of the Uso's with Samuary Del Sol from the top of the ladder through a ladder. It was an incredible sight to see.
Charlotte vs Paige: This match was a perfect example of the misdirection of the divas division and the lack of faith that management has in the division being an important part of the company. No offense to Ric or John Cena, but with their association with two of the divas you'd think that they would say something about it and try help things change. During this match both Paige and Charlotte seemingly were the heels and that was in part the reason why the fans were quite they didn't know who to cheer for. I do believe that Charlotte seems more comfortable as a heel, but with Paige just turning you really can't logically believe that two heels would feud as then there is nobody to cheer for. The issues in the divas division will trouble those in the division for a long time or until those in upper management believe in the women on the main roster like Triple H and his team do in NXT.
Roman Reigns vs Sheamus: To describe this match one has to say it was a brawl in every sense of the word these guys tore each other a part. They defied expectations and sadly didn't receive the praise they deserved from the crowd. I can understand that people didn't care who won, but both men still deserved better reactions for what they were doing then the reactions they received from the audience. The ending was the only ending that could have been done as Sheamus needed to win and I think everyone knew that WWE wasn't going to let him lose clean. I mean when was the last time that Roman wasn't protected in a match.
The post match beat down was awesome and a great way to finish the PPV. Roman finally looked like a bad ass to the point that various referees, Triple H, and Stephane actually came out to try and stop Roman's beat down. For one thing I don't really have much to say about Roman's attack on the League of Nations, but his attack on Hunter was great. I have never heard the crowd get so loud for something that Roman had done. The intrigue that now exists after that ending I can say for myself that I am very much looking forward to Raw tomorrow night.
