I know the E is not big on continuity, but didn't Ambrose already destroy Bray's rocking chair and Orton burn down the compound in the swamp?
Hey man, it's easy to see Bray went and ate at Cracker Barrel before the match and bought him a new rocker.

Tonight's matches were good but some of endings were not. Really feel for Banks and Asuka, great match with a cabbage ending.

Been finding myself watching Brian Pillman's Loose Cannon era 1995 through 1997 promos on Youtube.

It's fascinating enough by itself simply by knowing the backstory of it all...........but 2 specific things that come to mind:

1. It definitely feels like Brian Pillman getting released from WCW and eventually returning was planned as one of the bigger storylines of 1996......maybe before the NWO was really even mapped out.

2. And since he pre-dated one industry-changing storyline.............how about the fact that he signed with WWF prior to Austin going on his epic run? If not for his auto accident, was he about to get pushed to the moon as a Loose Cannon / anti-authority figure as well ?

#2 is interesting, but knowing Vince he probably would have pushed him more as a Psycho Sid than an anti-authority figure.

NXT had a very solid show last night, compare to last week's meh show. Robert Stone has been very entertaining, and now that he has Martinez, can go and wreck havoc, especially against Rhea. Not everyone's cup of tea, but I can watch Lorcan & Thatcher all day. These triple threat matches should be fun, and showcase some of the up and comers like Reed. I'm also hoping Kross can bring out that beast in Lee.

AEW was once again a fun show. One of my few gripes would be too many tag teams, but i get it, they are trying to get everyone some exposure. Eddie Kingston cut a hell of a promo to open the show. Dr. Baker is probably one of the top 5 overall heels, and she isn't even wrestling.

I was really hoping Kingston would win last night. He cuts a great promo.

Say that Daniel & Edge do come up with some great story lines, someone (Vince) is gonna mess it up somehow. Funny how most of the time logic always goes out the door.

Even if those guys only get final say in their own storylines, it could be for the better, since neither come off as having Nash-sized egos.
