It's kinda weird what they've been doing with that belt. Sasha's won it like 10 times and always loses it in a week. My guess is they want Nia to win it and there's probably a better story with Alexa/Nia than Sasha/Nia. Then that could set up Asuka debuting to take it from Nia. (I think Asuka will win it before the end of the year one way or another)I didn't even watch live last night due to the craziness here, but suprised they had Alexa win back the title (even though I love her).
have a bad feeling she'll lose it to Nia Jax at No Mercy though
Changing that match from Brock vs Jinder to Brock vs AJ is an insane upgrade. It actually feels like a real champion vs champion match now.Super excited for the PPV on Sunday. AJ Styles is one of my favorite wrestlers! I can't stand Jinder, if they released him I would throw a party lol
I agree. My fiance always like to say "This should have been a Wrestlemania match" in reference to any really good fight and I would say that about this.Changing that match from Brock vs Jinder to Brock vs AJ is an insane upgrade. It actually feels like a real champion vs champion match now.
Should be a fun weekend because Takeover is going to kick ass too
Watching Styles/Lesnar was painful for me. He just threw Styles around like he was a doll, I wont be surprised if hes injured at all! Lesnar is a beast!I talked about it in the daily thread last night after it concluded, but my thoughts on SS:
- Decent matches. Styles/Lesnar was probably my favorite contest of the night. Just the energy in the crowd it seemed alone. I also liked the storyline of Styles getting throttled at first and then bouncing back and giving Lesnar a fight, etc. Kept him credible in a loss
- Did not like the booking. The Raw v SD tally clock gave away some pretty obvious winners as the night went on. Bliss losing was obvious going into it with the teams tied 2-2. Especially with the Lesnar match following because you figured Lesnar would win and tie it back up before the last match "for all the marbles".
- Also the booking of the Main Event was pretty crappy imo.
I'll put it on Hulu the day after every once in a while, but I have been trying to keep up on that particular storyline because the chemistry was great. I hope both become monstersThat match was so great. I don't really watch the weekly NXT shows anymore but almost every Takeover is still fun as hell
