This was a pretty good show with some nice surprises, but the ending confused me.
Titus O’Neil was suspended for 60 days for grabbing Vince McMahon on camera. Did he deserve that long of a suspension? Is this all just a ploy to garner support or a big Titus O’Neil push? Check out my theories to see what I think is happening behind the scenes!
Zack Ryder looked for retribution against Stardust from last week, and Damien Sandow teamed up with Fandango to take on the Ascension in a couple of good matches for Superstars this week.
By keeping the match count low, this show was able to have some very nice wrestling. Chris Jericho wrestled AJ Styles in their rematch from the RAW after the Royal Rumble, and Sasha Banks took on Naomi in a very competitive match. Plus, the Dudley Boyz and the Wyatt Family both had some very important words for the WWE Universe (though some words were more cryptic than others).
Bayley put her title on the line against her friend Carmella in a match that had some surprising and satisfying elements.
Main event this week was pretty fun. It was highlighted by the return of Damien Sandow and a surprisingly competitive match between Heath Slater and Zack Ryder.
The show was fine, but it was made memorable due to the sad fact of Daniel Bryan’s sudden retirement from professional wrestling. His address to the fans was definitely the highlight of the show.
This week’s Superstars was an okay show. The matches were fine, but they’re anything worth going too far out of your way to watch.
With some very enjoyable moments and some surprisingly good matches here along with the usual stuff that Smackdown produces, this week’s show is a good watch.
Despite some of the obvious character-building, the main event made this show. Balor versus Crews was a very good match. Not a classic, but it was a departure from the regular WWE/NXT formula.
As usual, Main Event this week had two good matches and on okay one, but the main event match this week stood out as an important character-building match. Definitely worth a watch.
This week’s RAW was a decent show that had some interesting developments and a few really good matches.
With a surprisingly good TV Title match and a fun main event, this week’s ROH TV is worth your time.
This week’s Superstars had two pretty good matches, but the antics of Stardust make at least one of them very much worth watching.
A predictable show with mostly predictable matches (though Kalisto versus Neville stood out), but it’s a good watch.
With a couple of good matches, a lot of filler, and a return that no one cares about (both in-story and out), this week’s NXT was okay.
This week’s Main Event had a surprisingly good match between Rusev and Ryback and a match that most people would expect to be good, Swagger versus Owens.
The return of the Rock and AJ Styles versus Chris Jericho highlight a good followup to the Royal Rumble.
As a complete show, the 2016 Royal Rumble started strong and lost some steam as it went along. As a match, it seemed reminiscent of years past, which isn’t always a good thing.
Predictions are made and a fatal four way tag team match is held to determine two of the spots in the Royal Rumble match.
