Mahal/Randall in a Punjabi Prison match will be great, but judging by the lack of chat on their storyline thread i'm alone in enjoying this fued LOL

Usos will hopefully get a strong victory and I can see them getting twenty minutes to put on something entertaining.

I suspect AJ will end up facing Kevin Owens from their backstage interaction this week.

Usos/New Day - Excellent tag team match that built very, very nicely. I'm not sure if I would have made the switch here as we now have to have a rematch between them...which will have to be some kind of gimmick match now, so lets see where that all leads.

Corbin/Nakamura - I was really enjoying this match until the horrid finish...shocking booking WWE, real shocking. There's loads of better ways to protect both men sigh.

Womens Match - Was ok in places. 3 quick eliminations didn't help and Lana is still horrid in the ring. Didn't see Nattie winning, so that's a positive as she probably deserves a run with the title more than any other woman given her history and some of the shocking stuff she's had to put up with.

AJ/Owens - Another very good match, that was spoiled by the finish. Given what went down in Corbin/Nakamura...KO should have been DQ'ed twice but wasn't...once for the crotch on the ringpost and then for throwing AJ at the ref...poor booking again WWE.

Flag Match - Surprisingly good...when I say surprisingly...it was very good for a flag match. I am well aware Cena & RuRu can pull out excellent normal matches, but one with a flag involved, it was very good indeed. 

Kanellis/Zayn - Ok match, nothing too good, nothing too bad. I'm glad they went with Zayn as Maria getting involved for Mike all the time is going to get tiresome quickly and obviously WWE understand that.

Punjabi Prison - Wasn't too bad at all. Mahal is getting better and better, and Orton was beating the odds until Khali of all people showed up. I thought WWE would be keeping well away from him...I hope he isn't back long term haha. 

Overall a decent PPV so no complaints from me.

I was happy for Natty... that's about all I can say that's positive. 

AJ Styles shoulders were clearly up during the pin so... yeah. I'm tired of that as a storyline too, bad ref? Seriously? Fire the ref then, or bring him into the storyline like they used to, don't default on the ref made a mistake and ohwell, better luck next time. No, fire the ref. Remember? We're supposed to believe this is a REAL sport?

Cena stopping the flag from going in the hole the way he did makes no senese. Rusev should have won under those circumstances. But whatever, we knew Rusev was screwed anyway and Cena would win.

Oh, I guess I am happy Zayn won too, forgettable match though.

Poon-job match was terrible. Great Khali is ridiculous. No one in the crowd could see the ring. Great Khali is ridiculous. Orton beat down 3 men, had the match won on his own, and then...  Great Khali is ridiculous.

Very poor show, one I could have easily missed and not been bothered.

Usos vs New Day was match of the night, excellent back and forth action packed with near falls. A New Day win extends the feud which is fine with me as this is currently the highlight of Smackdown.

Nakamura vs Corbin bored me and what a lousy finish, still don't see what all the fuss is about with Nakamura.

Ladies match didn't really interest me but was ok I guess. Nattie winning was a surprise, makes me wonder if they are setting up a Nattie vs Charlotte feud later this year.

Styles vs Owens was a solid effort but I expected better, didn't impress me like the tag opener did. Another dumb finish, for once can't they just let a good heel get a clean win instead of these screwy finishes to protect the babyface.

Cena vs Rusev was dull, stupid stipulation and I actually nodded off briefly during this one which says it all really. Another Cena hatchet job for Rusev which we all saw coming.

Kanellis vs Zayn was rather average. Zayn win evens the score.

Punjabi prison match was ok, it had novelty value if nothing else as this gimmick match is used so infrequently.
I'm ok with Khali being back provided he is only used in a enforcer role for Mahal, as a in ring worker Khali is one of the worst to ever step inside the ropes but he does have a monster aura and presence that few others possess so in the bodyguard role he can be effective.

Sad that the best tag team in the company had to drop the titles so we get to see ANOTHER boring New Day run.

Nakamura and Corbin was only average and the DQ finish sucked.

Having so many average or worse women in the same clusterfuck match showed a big lack of strength in depth.

Owens and Styles put on a decent match which was let down by the ending.

Cena got the predictable win after mentioning 9/11 in his promo last week. It was a letdown and they didn't need the stupid stipulation.

Zayn and Kanellis weren't giving anywhere near enough time to shine. You'd think management want them to fail.

Popped to see Great Khali but it was difficult to see what happening due to the structure. Someone who was there rang in the Taz Show on monday and said they struggled to see any of the match action from ringside.
