I skipped Finn vs. Lashley/Lio & Baron/Braun.
Buddy/Tozawa was pretty damn good and got one of the better reactions a CW title match has gotten on kickoff shows the last year or so.
Women's EC was rough in a lot of parts, but still pretty darn fun with every team actually getting their moments to shine. Dug the hell out of Sasha's improvised Bank Statement. Glad Boss 'n' Hug Connection won.
Shane/Miz vs. Usos was solid fun. Congrats to Miz and Maryse on another kid coming.
Ruby/Ronda kind of pissed me off. I'm not really a Ruby fan at all and find her to be kind of overrated, but she did not deserve this bs. They better be arranging for her and the rest of Riott Squad to hold all the gold later this year. Despite that bullshit I actually did lover everything else else from Charlotte's awesome promo to Ronda's Sonya Blade outfit, to Becky beating the shit out of both.
The men's EC was going good, then got fucking fantastic with the Kofi/Bryan stretch. I loved seeing Kofi step up and take everything Bryan had to give. Loved the audience not being smarky and just buying into it all. They should given Kofi the win. If Kofi/Bryan isn't planned for WM yet it damn well should be after tonight.
Good show from what I saw, but then I also probably cut out the two weakest matches aside from the bullshit that was Ronda/Ruby. Their ppvs need tot be this short again outside of the big four (and WM should totally be split in two).
I don't think this would have worked nearly as well with Ali. He isn't super over and doesn't have the same back story Kofi brings that really helps push things to the next level for the audience.
