God no. That title should go no where near Joe.

Surley the wwe are going down an Aj vs Daniel bryan route for the next few months now.

I want Joe to win :-O

I really hope WWE put on a good show. I wasn't impressed with The Greatest Royal Rumble PPV in Saudia Arabia, it didn't feel as though anyone put any real effort into it. I hope WWE and the Superstars are more excited about Australia. I know they wouldn't want anything to match the spectacle of a WrestleMania but they could do a better job with progressing the storylines and a little more effort into the matches :)

I think Supershow down will be a bit more relevant than the greatest rumble show just because the winner of Miz/Bryan will get a title shot at the WWE champ and i fully expect Buddy Murphy to take the CW title. I cant really see any of the other matches impacting the WWE at all. The way i see it these are just massive house shows, so im happy they are on the network at all.

5 Tag matches and 5 singles matches

How about that.

I honestly think Greatest Rumble sucked so much because they must've had a clue that the arena was gonna be filled with people who actually don't give a crap about wrestling or know much about it, and that WWE was primarily doing it just for the giant payday they'd get out of it.

I haven't been watching WWE since I started my new job much, but I do read results so I can keep up with it. Gotta figure out where to fit it in to my life. Or start remembering to stream it live. Anyway, I likely won't watch this but maybe I will at some point. It does have some good stuff on it.

If Samoa Joe doesn't win the WWE title, I dunno what's next for him. This has got to be the final chapter here. But then again, if Joe wins, there's a rematch coming after this, probably in Saudi Arabia. So I dunno. If he loses, we're done with this feud. If he wins, we've got at least 1 more match to go. And while I like Joe/AJ, this is becoming like AJ/Shinsuke in that they're making them fight way too many times. 3 matches is the limit that you should do in a row, and that's only if it's tied at 1 win each and needs a tiebreaker. Otherwise, 2 makes more sense, or even just 1. Dragging the feud out over 4 or 5 matches just sucks the life out of it. It's really hard to do. At this point even Johnny and Ciampa need a break from each other.

Intrigued about Taker and Triple H for sure, but if they're building to a tag match, then it's not really "FOR THE LAST TIME" is it? Asshats. I could see Triple H winning this time since it's not WrestleMania and I don't think he's actually ever beaten Undertaker 1 on 1 before. Could finally get that W.

Shield vs Dolph StrowMcIntyre should be a good match. Shield should win, unless Dean turns.

Becky and Charlotte should be good too, I do want to see that. I figure Becky retains.

New Day and The Bar is hard to say. I wouldn't be surprised to see The Bar win, though.

Cedric probably will retain over Buddy Murphy. Glad Buddy is doing something though, I always liked him more than Wesley Blake.

I hope Daniel Bryan wins over the Miz this time, both for the feud and also to see Bryan vs Joe or Bryan vs Styles.

Naomi/Asuka vs IIconics is a throwaway, but I wouldn't be surprised if the IIconics pull off a win (pinning Naomi) in their homeland.

Cena/Lashley handily defeat Owens/Elias

Bella's/Rousey likely beat Riott Squad, especially if Liv Morgan can't compete and they substitute someone else on there.

Let us know how the live show experience was @BamBamsGurlMoo - stadium looked great!

Much better show than the Saudi one. Some random thoughts:

- I knew the Becky/Charlotte match was going to end in a DQ...they seem to want to extend all their feuds across multiple PPVs (I guess as they do so many)...although I'm enjoying it so I can't complain :lol:

- With added hair and some weight loss...John Cena seems to have aged about 10 years!

- As soon as The Iconics began talking on their way to the ring I thought they were going to turn on the crowd. When they didn't I was sure they were going to lose. Glad they didn't!

- Samoa Joe lost! :info7:He's failed at getting either world title on either brand. What's next for him? I suppose after AJ has finished with Daniel Bryan he'll still have Miz and possibly Randy Orton to feud with.
- Fantastic reaction for Buddy Murphy - so glad he won! :banana:

- After the way Bryan defeated Miz, I get the feeling he'll interject himself in the Styles/Bryan feud

- I guess we'll get the Taker/Kane vs Triple H/HBK match at the Saudi event in a few weeks time

Just looking ahead, we've got the Evolution PPV on October 28th, followed by the Saudi show 5 days later...followed by Survivor Series 16 days later o_O

It was an amazing event. Arena was awesome. Only disappointing match was Bryan v miz. Ended way to early. Loved aj v Joe. I felt the crowd were a little less enthusiastic then normal but might have just been my section

Last Time Ever:
Triple H vs. The Undertaker


Two Future hall of famers put on a decent match, Brothers of Destruction turned heel? tag match at crown jewel confirmed

WWE Championship:
AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe


All that build, while this was, in my opinion, the best match on the show, but having Joe tap soured the match for me

6-Man Tag:
The Shield vs. Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler, & Drew McIntyre


Have, to be honest, didn't care for this match, build up a possible Ambrose heel that didn't happen.

Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz

The quick ending was a bit of a shock not sure if it was a botched finish or not but could see Miz costing Bryan the title at Crown Jewel.

John Cena & Bobby Lashley vs. Kevin Owens & Elias

This match totally sucked Elias and Owens completely wasted here

6-Woman Tag:
Ronda Rousey & The Bella Twins vs. The Riott Squad


Meh.

SmackDown Women's Championship:
Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Becky Lynch


We get Charlotte is greater than Becky, and that's what the ending of this match was about, Becky isn't better than Charlotte.

SmackDown Tag Team Championship:
The New Day (c) vs. Cesaro & Sheamus


A decent match, but lead to the question, who is left for the New Day to face.

Asuka & Naomi vs. The IIconics

While is great the IIconics won, Asuka dancing with Naomi is further proof of the Asuka burial on the main roster

Cruiserweight Championship:
Cedric Alexander (c) vs. Buddy Murphy


Second Best Match on the show will be interested to see if Murphy gets a long run
