WWE has backed themselves a bit in a corner with this.
I listened to a Daniel Bryan interview where he said WWE's style is now more just punching and kicking - which is very true if you look at the majority of the matches last night. No chain wrestling, no other massive impact moves except for a Superplex here and a DDT there.
So, now guys have to resort to kick out of finishers - where normally, in a let's say Angle/Benoit match - that kickout would have taken place after the 3 amigos, or the 3 germans - or a dive spot - or a different than signature submission maneuver - or some chain wrestling counters
Watch Bryan / Punk VS Cena / Rock and compare wrestling vs. Kick, kick, punch, signature, finisher to see what I am on about.
damn... now I miss the ruthless aggression era
