Anyway, enough of that rubbish...

There were so many good notes about this show.

- Rhodes on commentary was surprisingly refreshing. He's decent in the ring, is proven to be fantastic in his old vignettes, has shone in the past with his live mic-work, but as of late it's felt rather forced. To hear him on commentary on this show, he felt relaxed and at home on the headset.

- Sandow continues to impress in the ring and yet he is losing so consistently. It's almost like where Zigglers been prior to his recent Main Event status. It's just a dangerous place to live because eventually, these false finishes in the ring are going to diminish the way the crowd invests into his offense. Take Jericho for example, there's no way on Earth anyone would take his Lionsault or Running Enziguri as considerable finishers given how much they've been kicked out of... yet in 2000 - 2001 and 2004 - 2005 they both served him quite well. Now? They're transitional/set-up moves...

- I'm Australian so the Zeb Colter angle is never going to appeal to me. In all likelihood, no xenophobic angle ever will..

- Obviously Sin Cara's speciality wrestling lighting is something that kids probably really enjoy, but to the viewer at home it just seems very tacky. The match served as a reintroduction to Swagger, but hey, he's still as boring as bat-shite.

- Langston/Hawkins served to spotlight Langston's offense but unfortunately it comes at the cost of Hawkins trying to deliver a solid new character change. Bit of a shame. I like Hawkins, seems more than competent in the ring, he's just never had a solid crack. That could be a knock on him not trying to break through, or a knock on creative. That remains to be seen I suppose.

- Lastly, when AJ came down for commentary, it was refreshing to hear how AJ/Ziggler's storyline are going since they're an on-screen couple. Good of Rhodes to bring it up on commentary, and a nice quick explanation from AJ who advised that like most couples, you fight and make up every now and then..

You're welcome to your opinion of thinking he's terrible on the mic and thinking that he's terrible in the ring with what you're seeing, but I believe he's money because I've enjoyed what I have seen. Some moments that come to mind in particular are the recent AJ/Kaitlyn/Langston taunts, another was when he acted as the interviewer for Ziggler. He came across really well on television. Langston has been around less than the majority of the roster on television, so I'm willing to cut some slack in regards to what level of reaction he gets from the crowd, in contrast to others that have played big bruiser types in the past.

I've stated why I think he'll succeed in the previous post you've just chosen to ignore it.



Of course I'm going to refer to his brief stint in NXT when considering him as a potential break-out star for the company, it's relevant as it points to not only what can be achieved on a grander stage but also, backs up what I'm saying about the lad.

Perhaps he won't be the Rock, but with a bit more polish I think he'll be winning over lads like yourself.
No denying you can get a good match out of Del Rio 9/10. Don't take the cushion portion so literally, I still think it's near gastly that the man is being pushed as hard as he is despite not being deserving of the position. Heck of a in ring talent, but it's a clear Vinnie Mac push all b/c of his minority dynamic and nothing more.

I've seen plenty of squash matches that are good and structured well. Even in this day and age. Antonio Cesaro has them often. Mark Henry too. I can go all the way to 1992 and think of a specific Rick Rude one where the talent of the man was shown through by making a match that is highlighted to be nothing more than a swift display to put him over, into something more complete and effective than various matches with heightened exposure and time. Haven't seen that with Langston yet. The guy in squashes feels so arbitrary and a cop out to hide how he may not be the best to go for the "long haul" of a more standard structured contest.

Oof, it was the faux-interview segment that made me cringe the most if I'm being truthful. It's nonsense like that where there is a total double standard behind it. John Cena acts silly in such a way, he gets crapped on to no extend. Langston does it, equally appears as facetious in his manner, but all of a sudden it showcases his "personality" and can be looked at as a positive. I don't buy it. It's bad all the way around or, on the flip side given your entertainment, it's good. Can't dip in and out of the logic there when charisma peeks out and decide to like it only on a specific wrestler all b/c of a difference in exposure.

His comfort zone, if you will, on the mic doesn't seem as evident to myself as it does to you. He stumbled upon his words before & his contract signing with Bo Dallas was a bad display of both men's work behind the stick. New or not, idc. You got to only go by what you see. Not everyone can be padded with "oh he's new, give it time." I will, but at the same time, I got to call what I see. Charisma point is bunk. Plenty of people had charisma in WWE. That doesn't always equal to success. You can name others who had something and didn't go onto much. D-lo Brown was filled with charisma for one example. There you go.

NXT point still means nothing b/c it's not different compared to when some big name from the Indies waltz on over to WWE and their work in the past is instantly forgotten in lieu of what they're going to accomplish & perform in the WWE. In front of those crowds. Yes, Langston achieved becoming over in Florida. Good for him. However, where that leaves him right now on the main roster is nowhere. WWE isn't playing off on that. He isn't a face. There's no signs at the moment - that being the key so I don't have to run through all of this again - that he's going to do anything. As a heels he's a dime a dozen. Maybe if they give him the Five Count gimmick on the main roster, the company can see some progression for him on the main show.

Me be a fan? Nah. I can't stand the sight of the guy personally. That's never going to change. I'll hope he becomes tolerable of course. I won't deny that as I would rather like to enjoy a match from the guy instead of rolling my eyes each time I have to see him and be un-interested. If I'm lucky, he'll be the next Ezekial Jackson. Not Ryback.

You can have a different opinion from mine, unless it's an unfounded and blind opinion full of prejudices againt big guys with muscles.

Your NXT/Indies comparision is completely ridiculous and doesn't make any sense because WWE and NXT are exactly the same thing, just on a smaller scale. They work the same style, cut the same type of promo and even have the same people to work with and the same people as audience. Everybody has seen what works and what doesn't, what are his weaknesses and strong points.

As far as the John Cena thing goes, there's a right and wrong way to do it. Cena generally does it in the wrong situations and with the wrong, childish tone because he has no comedic skills nor timing. The Rock acts silly all the time and it's pretty good most of the time. Big E Langston delivers his comedic lines perfectly, simply watch how he acted in that "Yes, Kaitlyn! It was me! All along..." segment. You're simply prejudicious against big guys and you put him in the "Untalented" column next to the Mason Ryans and Ezekiel Jacksons. You can be as stubborn as you want but there'll be one day when his talent is just too evident for you to deny it.

I agree with this lad, even if he is a touch over the top but I'm going to probably bow out here.

Looking forward to more quality Main Event shows...

Still don't see a stream for ME yet, but saw some low quality version of Swagger vs Cara, it was pretty much your ole squash. Gotta check the Christian vs Sandow match now.

Edit: Found one, and the match between Sandow and Christian was wear and tear, man, those 2 were pushing limits. Big E squash, still hate the attire, and AJ was looking good (had to say it) and Cody is definitely not boring on commentary, really enjoyed his work. Liked how he was forced to bring back up the good ole days of the IC title when he had, and did the best he could with it, which was more than enough.

Main Event seems to be on the right track again, which is a pleasure. It had the dull path for about a month or so and it's turned around since the WM show (well the program was filler, but Miz vs PTPs was actually a nice affair) from then on the weaker editions have felt few and far between. While I wasn't as crazy for a few matches as of late like some, the work in them was more than enough to be enjoyed from a "hey, it's on free tv" kind of perspective. The little things to look forward to.

Liking Rhodes on commentary too.

Sandow V.S Christain - Awesome match, Sandow gets some great heat and is destined for big things.

Sin Cara V.S Jack Swagger - Bit of a stinker, the gold light is off-putting and I suspect its there to hide botches.

Big E V.S whowasthat - Nice for Big E to be dominant on something other than NXT. THREE AINT ENOUGH MAN I NEED FIVE!

Rhodes on commentary was very good, you can tell him and AJ are pals IRL

Damien Sandow is just pure gold. He's too good to be a jobber at this point.

Oh shit, what a promo by Zeb Colter!!!!

AJ/Rhodes on commentary was good. They should have talked about Rhodes having a crush on Kaitlyn a while back before that storyline was dropped.

Once again a very decent Main Event. Like I said before, it is just simple and effective. Very good Sandow vs. Christian match, and Cody Rhodes should stay as colour commentator.
