I'm seriously pulling for KO to retain. Lesnar v Goldberg doesn't need the title to be hype and KO is the only long term top champion going into Mania. I know smart money is on Goldberg but stranger things have happened at the last minute.

They have indeed. Time will tell but I dread to think of the current #WWELogic

The only chance KO has of winning is with a shoddy finish and the thought of that sucks.

Roman Reigns will probably end the "I want competition" push of Strowman.

Neville in the pissbreak match he's better than. Have a surprise newcomer win to face him.

Charlotte will retain again to keep the PPV streak going.

What the Fuck was that?

OK so from memory opening match was Joe vs Zayn pretty good but predictable

Gallows and Anderson VS Enzo and Cass was OK not great

Sasha vs Nia was a good match and Sasha going over was a surprise

Cesaro vs Mahal was ok but you knew Cesaro was getting it

Rusev then Lay down for the Big Show

Neville and Gallagher had a good match 

Reigns vs Strauman was better than expected

Bailey vs Charlotte was MoTN 

Goldberg vs KO was a FUCKING SQUASH OF OWENS....FUCK OFF WITH THAT SHIT, JUST FUCK IT ALL. The arena boos were audible even though WWE tried to cover it

Better to start with the positives so.........

1) Neville and Jack Gallagher put on a match that did the brand proud. Neville couldn't put his opponent away so had to bring out his old finisher we've not seen during his heel run to get the win.

2) Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman was arguably match of the night. Two hard bastards you'd not want to mess with, putting their bodies on the line in a great brawl. The loser didn't look weak here either.

3) Sami Zayn and Samoa Joe got the crowd going in a decent opener that started the show well.

Now for the negatives..........

1) You break up a tag team on the night of a PPV, confuse fans into who they should be cheering for when they were shouting at eachother and then jobbed them both out in matches made on the night.

2) Sasha beats a woman that's much stronger than her without needing her finisher.

3) Bayley is continued to be booked as a shady champion who hasn't yet won a match as champion that doesn't have controversy.

4) The tag title match was forgetable and did nothing to make the division feel elevated.

5) Oldberg won another squash match and seems afraid of taking a bump.

Rewatched the Gallagher Nville match and it was MoTN not Bailey vs Charlotte. Watching Live out here made me super tired, but my other comments I stand by them

Meh, it was what it was. I expected a squash for Goldberg. I expected everything to turn out the way it did on this PPV except for the women's matches. Both surprised me.

Sasha SHOULD have gotten the win, but I figured Jax would be the winner, despite the fact that she, as a heel, can easily absorb the loss, while the 3 time women's champion Sasha couldn't afford to look bad, especially since he is supposedly going to be feuding with Bayley soon, now it's looking like it might even be at Mania.

I fully expected to see Bayley get her moment, clean, at mania where she pinned Charlotte and ended her PPV streak there. Not to be, and I wonder why... What's gonna top that? Certainly not Nia Jax.

Match of the night for me was either Neville vs Gallagher or Joe vs Zayn, both very solid entertaining matches, Neville as a heel is much better than the Cruiserweight division, Joe dominated his match and went over strong to continue his monster heel push.

Reigns vs Strowman was ok, slow and plodded in places but the main spots were well worked and Strowman again proved he's a very good big man worker. Surprised to see Reigns go over clean becoming the first to pin Braun Strowman. I hope Strowman can get a return win here otherwise this loss is going to lose him a fair bit of momentum, almost seems like they built him up to feed him to Roman.

Charlotte vs Bayley failed to draw me in, I know the ladies put on much better matches these days but they just all seem a bit repetitive and nothing seems fresh or exciting.

Tag title match was mediocre, the impromptu matches for Rusev and Mahal were filler, Jax vs Sasha was ok and I actually thought well booked with Nia dominating but Sasha getting a lucky looking win.

The main event well..... soon as I noticed less than 10 minutes to run on the show before the ring entrances had even finished the writing was on the wall here, predictable and lame and this now means Goldberg has wrestled less than 5 minutes in singles matches since his return and now holds the Universal title, for me this is even worse than when Brock Lesnar was champion and took the belt home for 3 months, at least Lesnar was capable of working a proper match, this second consecutive squash win for Goldberg all that confirms he is incapable of anything more and it's ridiculous that he is holding a World title and is set to main event WWE's biggest event of the year. I get that part time big names will always return and take centre stage at the expense of the full time roster, I don't really have a problem with that as long as the names in question can actually work a match!!!!! Seriously if this is all Goldberg has left now they should have let him do the Lesnar match at Survivor Series then announced his retirement.

I'm not going to even bother discussing the main event! Rest of the show was decent on the whole, Zayn/Joe was a good opener and is a match i'd love to see happen again.

Tag title match was ok, but could have been soooo much better. Sasha/Nia was ok too but they should have had Nia go over in order to continue her build. The less said about Mahal/Rusev and what went down afterwards the better.

Then I enjoyed 3 matches in a row, wowzers, can't remember when team Raw offered up such fun. Neville/Gallagher was really enjoyable, I hope they can drag out another match from these two for WM but can't see it. Reigns/Strowman was surprisingly good. I get why they put Reigns over, but Reigns is more made than Strowman who a win for would have been a massive rocket. Then Bayley/Charlotte, two who pretty much always deliver, though I'm kind of angry they ended Charlotte's PPV win streak on a cack PPV this close to WM.
