I liked Payback a lot. Even when you take the odd screwjob Women's finish and the odd pacing of the last third of Roman vs AJ into account.
Ryback and Kalysto outdid their Mania match, and the Big Guy had his best match probably ever. That top rope Military Press was legit great and I would not have been mad if that was the finish.
The tag match was unfortunate. There was so much god damn heat in that match that I think it could have ended up being something special. Now that Enzo is not seriously hurt, they might as well use it to build stupid amounts of heat for Vaudevillians.
Sami and Owens felt like the best main roster fight of the year. Those two are destined to fight forever in wrestling Valhalla. Some of the moves were just so brutal looking and just added that layer of hatred the two have for each other.
I was fine with how the IC title match ended. Miz should be winning in the most bullshit or ways, and it builds towards a four way that could be a legit MOTY contender.
I'm going to miss Chris Dadjoke. He reached down deep and channeled early 2000's Jericho for some of his best heel work in a decade.
The Women's match was certainly something. We were even joking in chat about Robinson reffing a Flair match, and then they went all 1999 WCW on us with a screwjob finish!
I really liked the first two thirds of the main event. Reigns puts on a better show when fights kinda like Brock; throwing people around and beating on them. The AJ counter of the Superman punch and Reigns counter of the forearm were two of the best looking sequences I've seen out of WWE this year.
They just followed up a solid slate of Raw's with a good PPV. It'll take a lot more than that to start winning people back, but it's a legit start.
