The Results

  • Bray Wyatt def. Daniel Bryan via Pinfall

Great match. I was actually scared for a moment when Bryan took a serious clothesline from Wyatt. I had to remind myself for a moment that Bryan is one hell of a seller. Kane is starting to build a nice collection of matches he’s interrupted. Bryan has enough momentum to take the loss and Wyatt look good, so I didn’t mind the finish as much.

  • Dean Ambrose def. Bad News Barrett via Pinfall

Dean Ambrose needed a high profile win after his feud with Wyatt. Didn’t hurt that it was a pretty good match either. There were a lot of great moments and segments between this match and Bray vs Bryan, so it started a little late in the second hour. Despite that, the show has been pretty good.

  • New Day def. Tyson Kidd and Cesaro via Pinfall

I like the fact that New Day had microphones this time. They could benefit from speaking a little more and getting the crowd involved. Cesaro and Kidd need to separate. I know they have some pretty cool moves together and look like a legit team, but they were already gaining a losing streak as singles wrestlers. It seems like WWE is determined to give them one as a tag team.

  • Paige and Natalya def. Summer Rae and Alicia Fox via Submission

Just Paige and Natalya looking good for their feud with the Bellas.  I wish the Divas had a tag team division, or any reason to justify two random chicks teaming up to face two friends  without it seeming like a match to put the two friends over. I know the Divas division has become just an in ring advertisement for Total Divas, but I like to pretend that the matches still matter.

  • Rusev def. R-Truth via Submission

It was nice of Rusev to let R-Truth finish his song and promo before crushing him. He has good manners at least.

  • Jay Uso def. The Miz via Pinfall

Decent match. Nothing special about it, but decent.

  • John Cena def. Big Show, Seth Rollins, and Kane via

Great match with an awesome finish! John came out of it really looking like a hero.

What a great way to set up for the Royal Rumble!! The NWO, New Age Outlaws, APA, Brock Lesnar, Shawn Michaels, Rick Flair, and Sting! I think the most memorable moment for me, besides Sting of course, was when Triple H ran in to the NWO and Shawn Michaels. I feel like like Hunter broke character and showed a few genuine moments then. From Roman Reigns saving Rick Flair, JBL still having one hell of a lariat,  to The Beast dominating the ending of the show, it was a killer night.
