^^^ I'll go with Sony's E3 conference

The fatal 4-ways were both very fun and I didn't mind the picture-in-picture bits cause they came at times the wrestlers were down on the mat anyway so they weren't a huge intrusion.

Very hype for both the MitB matches. I expect the women's one to be a step up from last year because then you had women without any real experience in gimmick matches but this time they know what they're doing a bit more plus you've got Sasha and Alexa who've done some big spots and Ember is just nuts anyway so it should be real good.

The MitB card actually looks pretty lovely outside of the MitB matches and the WWE title match.

Nia vs. Ronda
Carmella vs. Asuka
Roman vs. Jinder
Lashley vs. Sami
Rollins vs. Elias
Bryan vs. Cass
Bludgeon Bros vs. Gallows/Anderson



High potential in all of those matches to be badly wrestled, badly booked or a horrid combination of both.

I agree, it will be dumb if they don't give Elias the belt

Page is the dullest and blandest member of the Bullet Club so of course he's the one WWE likes the most

I only see the Elite going to WWE if they're given the AJ Styles of treatment of instant main roster callup and instant big push. It wouldn't be worth it to them otherwise.

Guys, this is your regular reminder that WWE PPVs may be dull and lifeless but Takeovers always deliver

Aw boo Finn lost again

The men's match was all right with a couple of big spots but overall I liked the women's match way more. They went all out and there was way more brutal hits overall

For how limited Nia is in the ring I thought Rousey/Nia was very good. Rousey's going to be really awesome once she gets a bit of experience and some decent opponents.

I guess that means she's the Finn Balor of the women's division.

Hold me back, guys. Hold me back!

The brand split and women's equality stuff is really messing with the structure of these shows now. It was weird having two women's title matches AND a women's MITB. Like the level of heat/interest in the women's division is not nearly high enough to justify all three of those segments. Yet all three have become mandatory. That's not good!

The women's matches were the only decent matches of the night though. And between Rousey, Asuka and ladder chaos there was enough heat to cover all three easily.

It was pretty good. I think Ronda will be really good once she learns how to promo.

The biggest problem with Ronda right now is there's a huge disconnect between in-ring Ronda and promo Ronda. Promo Ronda is awful and I don't give a poo poo about her but as soon as she turned into in-ring Ronda last night I remembered how great she was at WM and was instantly sucked in to seeing how she got on against Nia.
