Jason Jordan seemed to get mislaid during his opening promo and fans still booed him like a tip heel. Just wait until he develops some confidence.
Jason Jordan needs to start entrance to a ring with a children’s floatation vest and explain he’s an titular member of The Shield.
Finn Balor’s gimmick can now safely be described as “remember 10 years ago?!” The initial central “club” t-shirt should review “Dear New Japan Pro Wrestling, greatfully take us back.”

During his overproduced and inauthentic outline of Mandy Rose, Michael Cole described her as “driven, nonetheless fashionable,” as if it’s a warn that one chairman could have these dual qualities simultaneously. Do we know how early in a morning we have to arise adult to demeanour good?

“Broken” Matt Hardy was a lifestyle, “Woken” Matt Hardy is a tagline.
If Woken Matt Hardy knew what was good for him, he’d reason a pre-taped abnormal Royal Rumble of his own.

As Elias can attest, if we can get over as a guitar act in Memphis, Tenn., we can get over as a guitar act anywhere.
As shortly as Elias brought adult Elvis Presley in Memphis, the nervous tragedy in a room was identical to how it feels when someone brings adult sacrament during work.
Somebody needs to tell a FedExForum that they can hearten for The Miz all they want, he’s only not that into you.
The Miz seems like he’ll be a customer to take a Intercontinental Championship from Roman Reigns before he levels adult to plea Brock Lesnar during WrestleMania.
Enzo Amore vs. Cedric Alexander
Two of a tip matches we wish to see during WrestleMania formed on stream WWE booking:
- Daniel Bryan (not medically cleared) vs. Shane McMahon
- Corey Graves (not medically cleared) vs. Enzo Amore
Enzo was ostensible to demeanour like a doormat for holding a countout loss, though with a face lonesome in blood, who can censure him?
Babyfaces who applaud countout victories are a misfortune forms of babyfaces.
