They should've learned from their mistake of not letting Sasha vs. Bayley main event when they had the most momentum two years ago. That was easily the hottest program going into the card, with the suspense of Asuka's streak hanging in the balance. Adam Cole's debut was the only saving grace from a hype perspective.
Agreed, word for fucking word.

Asuka's match had me on the edge the entire time.

I don't HATE Roode as a performer but I don't expect great matches.

WWE has too many dark-haired, bland-looking wrestlers and Roode is no exception. There isn't anything "glorious" about him. How about signing/creating some blond stars or bringing someone like Jack Swagger back.

He,s great in all areas except his wrestling. He isnt bad but he works a very slowpaced oldschool style. Usually the heels are the ones dictating the pace and the wrestling so if he were to be a babyface and worked a guy like heel styles he could probably have some really good matches but as a heel he,s pretty boring in the ring

Roode/Cena somewhere down the line will be great. Cena with his usual "you need to earn respect" shtick vs Roode's cocky, entitled personality. Would be entertaining.

I'm in my mid 30's, so I think his ring work is refreshing as fuck. I'm not totally opposed to faster matches or flippy matches. In fact, I like some of those on the card too. Variety is my favorite. Roode's matches slowly build and have actual psychology. He's fucking awesome.

Roode is just solid. He can always be in the title picture, whether champ or on his way there. His matches definitely build and he tells a story well in-ring.

He doesn't do a million flips therefore he is 'boring'

Roode will do a great job as the main heel on SDL. And I think he's really needed there since The Miz went to Raw.

I think he'll be great in a US champ program.
