    I think RAW was a 1000x better than SD's PPV

    Sasha/Bayley/Dana #1 contender
    Jericho was gold during the highlight reel
    Cesaro/Sheamus
    The new & improved Bo Dallas, he never looked that great as NXT Champ
    The Club/New Day
    Zayn/Jericho
    Owens/Reigns
    Rusev destroying Reigns

    Clash of Champions looks way better on paper. So much talent that might not even make it on the card (Certified G's, Bayley, Cesaro/Sheamus, etc

    Next Monday we get the Cruiserweights too! Don't know if they'll crown a Cruiserweight champ tmrw on CWC or at the PPV

    I would like to see a Nikki Bella-Eva Marie feud but Eva's suspension might've killed it. Probably saving it for WrestleMania next year.

    ^This does NOT have to be for the SD women's title.

    Damn...Sabre lost in the Semifinals. I for sure thought it would be Ibushi/Sabre in the Finals. Congrats Gran Metalik for advancing to the Finals!

    TJP/Metalik are the only 2 out of the 4 under contract with WWE, so it was kind of expected

    Kota didn't want a full time schedule and Sabre Jr. still wanted to do the indy scene more

    guess I gotta go for the country man TJP

    I thought Perkins was more impressive. TJ Perkins is a star.

    What a great 2 hrs of wrestling. All four guys are on the same level, those matches were all classics. Loved the tag too with 4 of the new division.

    This tournament ruled. Can't wait too see Perkins, Metalik, Gargano & Chiampa, Alexander, Dar, Kendrick, Swann, Gallagher, etc on RAW.

    From here on out the CWC winner can be #1 Contender, maybe Ibushi or Sabre wanna be in the WWE full-time

    I really can't stand that in ring lady who interviews post match. That's atleast the 3rd or 4th I've recognized asking the same exact question word for word like she memorized it off a flash card

    Ibushi vs TJP might be the best match in WWE this year. Did ya'll see that one spot where Ibushi just kept kicking the sh!t out of TJP near the ropes. Like about 10 kicks nonstop, DAMN!

    There's probably 10 matches in the tourney that could be MOTY and that includes the 40+ min final match actually both semi-finals. Loved seeing Metalik pull off some impressive submission stuff to match what Sabre was pulling off. Every difficult spot was pulled off with perfection and the back and forth japanese style 'you punch me, i punch you' stuff was stiff as ****

    I think the CW division will setup Neville's push for a title reign. Maybe a heel turn for him?

    Also, there's still a possible chance that we get to see a Ibushi-Sabre dream match but in another promotion. (New Japan, EVOLVE, PWG, WCPW, etc.)

    Looks like the Cruiserweights are going to remain involved in active storylines in NXT as well from the last set of TV tapings. Cedric Alexander is already in a major one that will probably be an NXT Takeover match. Lince Dorado, The Bollywood Boyz, Rich Swann, etc are on there

    The tag teams on the Dusty Rhodes Classic look super exciting.

    Ember Moon (Athena Reese), Nikki Storm, Billie Kay & Peyton Royce are getting pushed as challengers for Asuka

    And there's a major stable coming
