Wrestling has gone down hill since the NWO. The heyday was the 80's when guys had great names like Hulk Hogan, Koko B Ware the birdman, Randy Macho man the Iron Sheik and of course Ricky the Dagon Steamboat!!

but if it entertains you then great!

It will always be the WWF to me. I don't care what a bunch of Panda and seal loving hippys or the courts say!!

No, he sucks. Him being champion is the result of the company's misguided attempt at marketing toward the India fanbase.
Pretty terrible card for the 2nd biggest show of the year.

The 4way for the Title started out being booked great. But the past 3-4 weeks, they've really lost some steam. They've booked these guys in too many matches and brawls with eachother on free TV that now that they are at the PPV match, it's lost it's luster. They should've kept them apart from eachother for the past couple of weeks.

The only well booked storyline from start to finish is the Rollin/Ambrose vs. Sheamus/Cesaro match for the Raw tag titles. Great continuity and character development for Rollins and Ambrose since it started. Hoping Rollins and Ambrose win the tag titles, have a nice run with the titles, and it eventually leads to Dean turning heel on Seth to pay him back for Seth doing the same to him and Roman and breaking up the Shield over 3 years ago. That would be fantastic.
It should have been

Lesnar Strowman one on one.

Look for Roman to take a lot of naps in this one.

Was amazing last night. You would hope that would push these guys tonight to step up their game.

He is a good natural heel. No one likes him. I would say how this thread is going he is doing a good job and so is the WWE.
The anti American gimmicks hardly get under my skin

Yeah the crowd here we REALLY into it
Tag match  
GiantsAndCanes : 8/20/2017 7:25 pm : link
I don't understand why the Smackdown tag title match was on the pre-show either, especially after those two teams had the best match at Battleground. It's not impossible to think their match might also be the best at SummerSlam too.

Pretty good match  
KWhite2250 : 8/20/2017 7:39 pm : link
Between Naomi and Natalya. Wasnt expecting that
Natalya wins

I hope Braun eventually goes over by beating Brock.
