I actually really liked the PPV as well. The opener was great, of course like you said the rankings meant nothing. Enjoyed the knockouts match surprisingly, I like Roxxi's physicality and it went well with Kong, plus I like how they had them win without Kong being a part of it. Rhino/Bashir was just shit. Lasted way too long, couldn't keep my attention, the gore didn't even go over well. The Tag Title match was damn good, they really tried to have an ROH-style tag match, and I would've went higher but I got the feeling that it was just a little too overdone. The guns should've won about 4 times. Legends Title, nothing special. I'm so glad Booker's gone now. Angle and Abyss was incredible, rating speaks for itself. To my biggest surprise I really liked Joe/Nash. I loved the physicality, you could feel the hatred, and I wouldn't call it jobbing by Joe or anything. Mafia had to pull off the wins that night and it was perfect for Nash to have to cheat and throw everything he had at Joe to get the win. Sting/AJ could've been better, but still a solid main event with a few nice spots and another ending that made sense to me. Great show.
