I kinda like that they went in a different direction than the usual "Enforcer gets involved and costs the heel the match" His reactions to the brutality was the point I think, like when Storm and Roode were beating each other with trash can lids and blood was flying everywhere. They did quick zoom of his face and him looking like "
is this real life!?"
Speaking of Hardy vs. Aries(BFG), I loved how the crowd started to turn like halfway in the match. It was mostly pro Aries then it started to switch to a 50/50 split crowd then the crowd just started cheering regardless because the action started to pick up. Yeah I know Hardy did get some boos.
Another thing I liked about that feud is the fact that Hardy never talked down to Aries even though Aries is smaller than him. He never took him for granted, he always took him seriously. Aries looked really strong in both matches with Hardy, especially the BFG one with him throwing Hardy around the ring like a rag doll.
Both men busting out 'new' moves had me
too. Like when Hardy hit the Alleyoop on Aries and when Aries hit that top rope Frankensteiner on Hardy. Then the ladder match was innovative too. Twist of Fate on the ladder on top of the turnbuckle, Hardy being wedged in between the ladder was cringe worthy and then Aries raising the belts up so Hardy couldn't reach them was a genius heel tactic. "YOU AIN'T NEVER GETTING THOSE FUCKING BELTS HARDY!"
