The Results


  • Dolph Ziggler and Randy Orton def. Rusev and Sheamus via Pinfall

It was a typical face vs heel tag team match. Nothing stood out about it at all. Grade – B

  • Neville def. Stardust via Pinfall

Another match between Stardust and Neville. And a lot like their previous times against each other, Neville came out on top. Grade – B –

  • Team Bella def. Team PCB via Pinfall

PCB is officially over. It truly ended once Paige spoke out against her team members a couple of weeks ago on Raw. So the group continuing to team up despite their differences does nothing to push Paige’s storyline along in a believable way. And her illogical reaction to Charlotte and Becky leaving her in the ring actually did more damage to her stoyline than helped it. It Seems like when it comes to the Divas division, WWE has a habit of finding something that works and ruining it for themselves with the writing for the segments. Grade – C-

  • Kevin Owens def. Chris Jericho via Pinfall

A great match between the two. Chris Jericho is definitely at a point in his career where he can take a loss and put Owens over without losing any credibility. And while the outcome of the match was obvious due to Jericho’s schedule, it was a great back and forward exchange between the two. Grade – B

  • The Dudley Boyz def. New Day via DQ

A great match between both teams, but it feels like this feud is starting to grow just a little stale from overexposure. I’d like to see the two teams face each other a little less while headed towards Hell in a Cell. Grade – B

  • Brock Lesnar def. Big Show via Pinfall

The Big Show looked believably dominant in the ring until he was given a one way ticket to suplex city. And then it was all over for him.  Grade – B +

  • John Cena def. Seth Rollins via Pinfall

*Match of the Night*

Seth Rollins vs John Cena again was something I was not looking forward to. However, both men brought their A game and delivered one hell of a match together. The only downside to the match was Kane’s involvement in the end. But other than that, the match delivered way more than I expected it to. Grade – A


WWE’s Live From MSG special delivered a few entertaining matches, but it felt more like a Raw than a special event. In fact, it had sort of a house show vibe to it. While enjoyable, the event was not strong enough to sell the network to fans currently not subscribed. And in the end, subscribers could completely miss the show considering that there were no title changes and it did not push any storylines along.
