Perfectly fine match. Fun comedy involving Breezeango being sun-burned. Finally getting somewhere with Golden Truth after all this time. Really like the Breezenago pairing. Thumbs up start to me.

Kickoff Show: The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray and D-Von Dudley) vs. The Lucha Dragons (Kalisto and Sin Cara)

Kalisto and Bubba start. Bubba talks trash early. Kalisto gets away from the Dudleys’ corner, constantly evading them. D-Von stops Kalisto, but Kalisto fights back with a rana. Springboard crossbody and moonsault by Cara to both of the Dudleys. Stereo flip dives by Lucha Dragons wipe out the Dudleys outside.

Opening video package looks at Las Vegas and the big matches on tonight’s PPV.

Enzo’s wearing a Vegas-themed outfit. Enzo and Cass do their usual shtick on their entrance. Loud reaction for Enzo and Cass. New Day compare Enzo and Cass to Han Solo and Chewbacca, as well as The Vaudevillains to the Monopoly men in their pre-match promo. Woods says they will show why they are “The Elite” team in this industry, an obvious dig at Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks, The Elite in New Japan, who have been going back-and-forth with New Day throughout this year on social media.

Kofi and Anderson start. Dropkick by Kofi gets a 1 count. Gallows with shots to Kofi in the corner.

Midnight Hour on Anderson by New Day.

Kofi pins English to retain the titles.

Winners and STILL WWE Tag Team Champions: New Day by pinfall

New Day celebrate their title retention after as we see highlights of all the carnage in this match.

Super-fun opener with a real hot, frenetic pace to it. New Day retaining is the right call as there is no reason to take the titles off them anytime soon with their immense popularity. Vaudevillains eating the pin was also the right call as they are low team on the totem pole currently. Enzo and Cass and The Club lost nothing in defeat. Loved this, nice way to kick-off the PPV proper.

Backstage promo with Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho and Alberto Del Rio all bickering about who is gonna win the Money in the Bank Ladder Match later on tonight.

Dolph Ziggler vs. Baron Corbin

Ziggler tries to take down Corbin early to no avail. Corbin avoids a superkick, but Ziggler with a dropkick. Corbin slips out of a neckbreaker, hits a big right hand and takes control.

Big elbow drop by Ziggler gets 2. Corbin blocks the Fame-Asser and a superkick and hits a big clothesline for a close 2. Corbin blocks another Fame-Asser and Snake Eyes Ziggler on the turnbuckles. Ziggler finally hits the Fame-Asser for a close 2. Corbin avoids another superkick and heads outside. Ziggler runs out after him, but Corbin hits him with Deep Six outside!

Corbin stops Ziggler on the turnbuckles. Ziggler blocks a superplex, but Corbin crotches him.

End of Days gets Corbin the win.

Winner: Baron Corbin by pinfall (End of Days)

Solid match, Corbin put on a very good performance, in spite of the Vegas crowd chanting “Boring” during it. Ziggler is another gatekeeper at this point in his WWE tenure, but he did a good job again at making Corbin look great. I liked this.

We see Seth Rollins preparing backstage.

Natural Selection by Charlotte to Natalya for the win.

Winners: WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte and Dana Brooke by pinfall (Natural Selection)

Charlotte and Dana celebrate their win after. Lynch helps Natalya up, but Natalya attacks Lynch and leaves her lying. Natalya leaves the ring very upset.

Run-of-the-mill tag match here. Ever since Extreme Rules, the Women’s Division has been put on ice for no real good reason. This did nothing, other than the post-match angle with Lynch and Natalya, to thaw it out. For a division that looked so promising after Wrestlemania, it unfortunately looks like we are right back where we started one year ago before the “Divas Revolution” began. Almost as if someone put the kabosh on the division becoming too popular or something, can you say Knockouts Division 2009?

Backstage promo by Dean Ambrose about the Money in the Bank Ladder Match later tonight.

Winner: Apollo Crews by pinfall (Crucifix)

Crews celebrates after while Sheamus can’t believe he lost.

Decent match with a fun flash-pin ending with Sheamus being surprised by the upstart Crews. Nothing more to it that, it was fine.

We see Roman Reigns preparing backstage.

Video package on how we got to John Cena vs. AJ Styles, which is up next.

Styles with shots to the leg of Cena. Cena then DRILLS Styles with a big clothesline, but can’t do the Five Knuckle Shuffle due to his leg.

Referee comes to and Styles pins Cena for the win.

Winner: AJ Styles by pinfall

Styles celebrates his win after.

Great match with an unneeded cheap finish with the Club interfering to give Styles the win, while protecting Cena at the same time. Cena is beyond protection at this point, so doing the ending that way doesn’t help Styles in the slightest. Shame such a masterful performance by both men had to be tarnished by timid booking.

Winner and NEW WWE World Champion: Dean Ambrose by pinfall (Dirty Deeds)

Ambrose celebrates his title win afterwards as the show closes.

WOW, what a way to end the show. First off, great main event between Reigns and Rollins. Secondly, I really feel like the Ambrose cash-in and title win was a complete and utter audible called on the fly due to the Cleveland Cavs winning the NBA Title an hour or so ago, since Ambrose is from Cleveland. Even if that is or isn’t the case, tonight was about the resurrection of Dean Ambrose as a player in this company and it was an amazing success. Looks like it’ll be a Shield three-way at either Battleground or even Summerslam and tonight’s proceedings allow for it to have some true meaning. Reigns looks to get his belt back, Rollins wanting to avenge being given the ultimate payback by Ambrose, Ambrose wanting to prove that the title win wasn’t a fluke and all three of them wanting to show who the best member of the Shield is. It writes itself. Phenomenal ending to a damn good show. Go watch the replay, NOW!

MOTN: Reigns vs. Rollins

MVP: Dean Ambrose

Sourced from Robbonnette.

Thank you.

Sheamus vs Randy Orton

Good opener.  Sheamus wins clean to even things up from Battleground when Orton got a clean win.  We got all the signature moves from both guys and a nice finishing sequence to close it out.

Tag Team Title Match: Prime Time Players vs New Day vs Lucha Dragons vs Los Matadores

New Day is tearing it up right now, and this was the perfect setup to have them regain the belts through sneaky tactics and make the Primetime Players look good to keep the feud going.  At this point it’s pretty obvious that the Matadores and Dragons are only there to add some high flying stuff to the match; neither team is going to win the titles any time soon.  The match was good all around.

Dolph Ziggler vs Rusev

Match was ok, the crowd was starting to cool off.  The ladies for each man got involved, and it ended in a double countout.  This is more than likely a setup for a mixed tag match at Night of Champions, and hopefully it will end there.  Rusev needs to get served up a few people to get his mojo back and Dolph could use a different adversary.

Stephen Amell and Neville vs Stardust and King Barrett

Pretty much perfect execution here.  They kept it short, and didn’t expose Amell.  He had some nice athletic moves (including a top rope dive) and sold the beating well.  Neville did the heavy lifting for his team as expected.  Nice little diversion.

amell dive

Intercontinental Title Match: Ryback vs Big Show vs Miz

Another short one that got in everything it needed.  Ryback wins to retain the title as expected.  Good for what it was.

Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose vs Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper

Good match overall.  No heel turn for Dean or Roman as some people wishfully threw out hope for on Twitter.  That’s a good thing; a gratuitous hotshot turn for no particular reason would have been stupid.  You folks that can’t let go of Roman winning the Royal Rumble aren’t going to give him a break if he goes heel anyway, and people want to cheer Dean so a heel turn for him wouldn’t take so why do it?  Dean and Roman won straight up; I’m assuming this ends their whole angle here and all four guys will move on.

Title vs Title: Seth Rollins (World Champ) vs John Cena (US Champ)

cena-rollins

BIG surprise here with Rollins winning thanks to the surprise John Stewart heel turn and interference.  I don’t think anybody saw that coming.

cena-rollins 3

Excellent match, and Rollins led the way.  Cena works better when he’s in with a bigger opponent like Kevin Owens or leading along a more limited guy like Ryback than he does solo with smaller guys like Rollins but Seth worked his butt off in there. He pulled a spectacular frog splash and Cena used a figure four leglock at one point in the match.

cena-rollins 2

Easily one of the best two or three matches of the night.  Rollins winning and holding both titles presents an interesting situation.  In the short run I bet he keeps both for storyline purposes.  But long term either he’ll lose one of them, I’m sure.  Great stuff from both guys, though.

Elimination match: Paige, Becky, and Charlotte vs The Bellas and Alicia Fox vs Sasha Banks, Naomi, and Tamina Sunka

divas tag match

Gotta say this was a letdown.  For one they put it in the cool off spot after the Cena-Rollins match, which is a sign that someone in the front office still doesn’t get it.  Then Banks’ team gets eliminated only six minutes in, which the crowd hated.  After the performance she gave the night before and the way the crowd is responding to her, getting Banks’ team out of there a few minutes in was a bad move.  And the crowd showed their disapproval by booing the elimination then largely going quiet afterward.  Banks is a star and they better not mess this up.  The match was pretty good but the dead crowd took something out of it.

Cesaro vs Kevin Owens

Great stuff here.  You rarely see the match before the main event at a non-WrestleMania show be this good.  Both guys brought their A-games, and for Owens this was less than 24 hours after a hellacious ladder match against Fin Balor.  cesaro-owens

If by some chance their angle isn’t finished I’d love to see these two guys lock up again.  They really worked well together.  Owens needed a win after taking two straight losses to Cena so him winning here is the right choice.

cesaro-owens 2

Main Event: Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar

The finish here deserves it’s own piece, and maybe I’ll do that later.  But the match itself was damn good.  Taker appears to have figured out just what he can and can’t do at his age and adjusted accordingly.  He didn’t have to be carried through this one like he did against CM Punk at WrestleMania 29.  And he even took a lot of major bumps.  He ate a bunch of suplexes from Lesnar and took an F-5 on the announce table.  A hell of great brawl.  But that finish……good grief.  I get that you can’t have Brock win two matches in a row against ‘Taker, and that you also can’t have Lesnar out there just straight jobbing.  But couldn’t they have conjured up the same controversial ending with a ref bump instead of the timekeeper freelancing foolishness?  We’re obviously going to get the final chapter at WrestleMania and if they can duplicate the intensity of this one and have a good, clean finish then maybe we can forget about this.  But until then we’re going to have a real sour taste in our mouths over this.

Overall grade: A

I agree with entire article.

However, I still think we are going to get Undertaker vs

Sting at WrestleMania 32. Final Chapter of Undertaker and Brock Lesnar will

be at Night of Champions or Hell in a Cell in October.

Ex-UFC champ Brock Lesnar says WWE’s Vince McMahon better promoter than Dana White

Thank you and sourced from http://www.mmajunkie.com for article.

WWE Superstar and former UFC Champ Brock Lesnar was making his rounds promoting

SummerSlam taking place this Sunday live at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

When asked about Dana White’s recent “fake” comments about wrestling and who is the better promoter Dana White or Vince McMahon:

Ex-UFC champ Brock Lesnar says WWE’s Vince McMahon better promoter than Dana White | MMAjunkie

When asked about White’s comments, Lesnar’s response was simple: Everybody knows it’s fake.

“Of course, Dana, it’s fake,” Lesnar said. “Everybody knows that, but it’s still the same – you’re promoting the same thing we’re promoting. Dana White is promoting fights, we’re promoting fights. It just so happens that we get a little more longevity out of our fight and out of our fighters because of the circumstances.

“Dana, probably in his defense, is promoting fighting – but it’s the same thing. He’s trying to sell pay-per-views. He’s trying to sell money fights. It’s the same racket.”

Lesnar said he believes WWE CEO Vince McMahon is a better promoter than White when pressed a bit more on the difference between the two.

“The business model is the same; it’s identical. I think Vince McMahon’s better at it than Dana, and that might rub Dana the wrong way.

“Vince is the pioneer of it. He’s been doing this his whole life, and he’s damned good at it.”
