The Usos Segment

They were awesome here. Riddle & Nakamura (Randy's endorsed proxy according to Riddle) challenged the Usos for the Unified Tag Team Championships

Thumbs Up



Championship Contender's match: Raquel Rodriguez defeated Ronda Rousey via DQ (:54)

Thumbs In The Middle Pointing Up

I'll say this, these two had the best match you could possibly have in 54 seconds before the stupid finish. Felt much longer than 54 seconds somehow.


Ronda Rousey & Raquel Rodriguez defeated Shayna Baszler & Natayla (3:28)

The KO Show with Sami Zayn

Thumbs In The Middle Pointing Up

This was an awesome segment. Owens and Zayn were great in their roles and the best thing on the show. But two things, 1: what did this lead to? 2: They teased a feud between two heels.


Gunther & Ludwig Kaiser defeated Ricochet & Drew Gulak (6:23)

*** (Out of respect for 4 good workers)

New Day & Drew McIntyre defeated The Brawling Brutes (11:33)

***1/4

Thumbs In The Middle Pointing Down

The show long story line was that Kofi & Xavier had a mystery partner. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure they did this match already, and does anyone care about Drew McIntyre anymore? Anyways the babyfaces finally got a win in this one sided and boring feud.


Final Thoughts: Thumbs In The Middle Pointing Down

Nothing was particularly bad, but this episode was completely miss-able. They setup challengers for the Usos, but they OP-ed The Bloodline so much that no one is a believable challenger. I never think 🤔 "Gee that/those guy/guys are beating Roman/The Usos for the belts. All this hype about Cody perhaps being the one to dethrone Roman, but I don't believe Cody might be the one to beat the 1 all things considered. Nothing against Cody, just my humble opinion.
