If you look at the match on its own, its fairly ok imo and was a decent championship match.....however in context of the story and in context of how badly he was walking less than a week ago. This match is nothing short of dumb and nonsensical.

the match itself doesn't change the fact that there is so many contradictions going on here in terms of the story surrounding it. Its utterly dreadful.

probably a combination of seths awful acting ability and wwe's awful storytelling ability. That aspect gets no praise from me.

thats honestly ridiculous.

Plans must’ve changed - Vince must’ve written off the rib injury before the show. Absolutely ducking ridiculous.

You did the right thing by not watching. I started not to watch but was curious how the ending would be.

true but there's nothing to compare it too. Orton and Batista were not booked the same way Brock was prior and not half as dominant. Also in that match (as much as I loved it) I also had issues with Bryans lack of selling too.

Take in ring selling how you want, Some may call it nit picking, but it's something that really urks me a lot. At least Ricochet did an awesome job in his match with Styles selling that leg, constantly remembering that the injury was there and trying to work around it.

Re: Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins (Universal Championship)

So how am I supposed to take Brock serious and as a threat moving forward? You have Brock your most legit badass fighter in that locker room who has pretty mich beaten everybody else at 100% but a small dude like Seth with injured ribs he cant defeat?

Is Brock just unlucky when it comes to Seth? Does Seth have Brocks number?

When I look at Seth and Brock..this is how I see a real fight betwen them.

If Seth was to clock Brock full force in the face. Brock will get rocked, he'll stagger a bit but he'll stay on his feet. It may take 3 or 4 punches to knock Brock off his feet.

Now if Brock hit Seth in the face full force. One hard swing is all Brock would need to knock Seth down. Hell he might break his jaw or crush his eye socket.

Moving foward I also now expect Seth to just beat everybody and retain till he's 55 since an injured battered Seth can defeat a unhurt Brock.

Super Saiyan Seth.

It was a good match though I will give it that

tbf, you likely wouldnt get a high amount of dizziness from that, he only span him around once. Think you are going abit far in picking faults there. There is plenty of stuff that doesnt make sense already.

plus if he got up without feeling dizzy then he clearly didnt get dizzy otherwise he would be falling over without needing to act. You can't just turn off dizziness because its a fake fight.

It's suspension of disbelief, so he can backflip with his ribs hurting in storyline? Make it make sense.
