It's my favorite fanmade thing for wrestling since Wrestling Isn't Wrestling. I've watched it multiple times now.

e: seriously, this is the closest anything I've seen since Max Landis's final speech in Wrestling Isn't Wrestling came to just showing the pure joy I feel when I watch Pro Wrestling.

The one absolutely consistent thing about HHH's character over the last 17 years is his desire to bury Jericho. They were never on the same side, right?

Holy poo poo everyone watch that side by side edit of the Creed things, it makes it EVEN BETTER.

The side by side of Dean and Kurt getting lifted with the titles was especially fantastic, and the juxtapositions of Rock and Roman and Seth and HHH are especially amazing.

I spoilered them because they took me by surprise which made them even better.

This is so good, especially the side by side view.

Also I went to WWE's youtube channel to see how bad the Emmalina debut was and unlike all her promo videos and most other Raw segments, they did not upload it. I guess that answers my question.

I thought the side by side at the beginning of Rock and Austin vs Rollins and Reigns would be better served by AJ and Cena considering the history and whatnot, but it's otherwise perfect.

I forget, did we decide that being put as the junior member of a team with Chris Jericho was the end of AJ's chances to be a big deal in WWE at the time? Seems like a fairly Rowdy Ringsports thing to claim.

People were definitely pissed about AJ losing at mania but I remember Y2AJ's brief run being pretty popular. Everyone went nuts for that match they had with New Day.

Brock! Oh, man, I'm sorry about your...

...tooth?


There are so many great touches in that Jericho/Owens segment.

The thing that really made it work was that we knew that they'd split up and end up in a WrestleMania feud, but it made the most sense to do it after Fastlane. Jericho got Owens into that situation, so Goldberg steamrolling through the two of them seemed like a likely way to end it. Jericho and Owens would no longer be unbeatable and Owens would be able to snap and attack Jericho. It was just going to suck because it would make those two look lame and Owens attacking Jericho would be sort of justified. We'd be meant to root for Jericho despite being a loser screw-up.

But it still felt like the Festival of Friendship would be an amusing piece of filler to build on the eventual turn. Having it happen last night made it way more shocking and emotional. Plus it keeps them protected in a way. Maybe Jericho could have helped Owens retain against Goldberg. We'll never know because of Owens' hubris.

Then there's Owens' reasoning. Was it one thing or a combination of stuff? Did Triple H pull him aside to say, "Cut this poo poo out, this isn't why I made you champ"? Was it the Goldberg challenge? Was Jericho getting too annoying for him? Even in Jericho's heartfelt speech, he keeps playing up how Owens keeps winning because he needs Jericho and you can see that piss Owens off, even if Jericho meant it in a nice way.

The crowd's response is the best thing because it goes from a sad reaction to Jericho being put on his own list to a realization that he's on Owens' list to a louder realization that this is the end.

Definitely, great great timing. I also felt Rollins turning on The Shield was great timing. The best time for a shock is before people would expect it.

In this case, they also forshadowed it and had us wondering what was going on with Kev throughout the episode, so the whole Festival of Friendship had that air of uneasy uncertainty to it too. Then the actual reveal and turn was funny as well as heartbreaking, which I think it pretty great. Kind of a unique and unconventional vibe to the whole segment, pretty original.
