Being the last PPV before Wrestlemania, it felt like they were playing it safe and predictable with Fastlane. Most of the matches weren’t great, there were some filler segments, and the main events didn’t really deliver. There were some bright spots on the show, but overall this one felt like an average (yet long) episode of RAW.
A pretty good show that god better towards the end. A few matches felt like they were looking past this show and towards Wrestlemania, but the last few matches of the night made up for that.
While the results make this show feel like more of the same from WWE, the show itself was entertaining. It wasn’t the best Royal Rumble in history, but the Rumble match itself was fine, and Styles versus Cena stole the show.
A couple of good Hell in a Cell matches make this a decent show.
This year’s No Mercy was pretty good, with the good matches being very good. The placement of matches seemed odd, but that didn’t hurt the show too much.
This year’s Clash of Champions was entertaining enough, but nothing seemed to get resolved in any of the storylines going into it.
The best of Backlash wasn’t as good as the best of Summer Slam, but this was an enjoyable show and a good start to the brand exclusive PPVs.
This year’s Summer Slam was entertaining, though for the matches that delivered on the hype, there were others that didn’t quite live up to expectations.
A long and entertaining show highlighted by two good matches featuring long histories. There was some down time in the show, but the good outweighed the not as good.
An uneven show with some average matches, two pretty bad matches, and two really great matches. If nothing else, this show is worthwhile for the Intercontinental and World Heavyweight title matches.
