Angle was cleared by WWE doctors to wrestle, and he had been wrestling on the indies right up until the date he signed with WWE. Bryan has a serious concussion issue and hasn’t been cleared by doctors to wrestle and that’s why we haven’t seen him in WWE. X-Pac points out that WWE also took care of Angle in his first match back because it was easy for him to slide into a match featuring 7 other competitors.
X-Pac liked the opening match of the show between Asuka and Emma. He points out that some people criticized the fact that Emma had a competitive match against Asuka, when they felt Asuka should have squashed Emma. X-Pac thinks that’s silly, and says if there’s a way to simultaneously help two talents at once that’s always the best way to go.
He says that he simply wasn’t interested in the Cruiserweight tag match so he didn’t watch it. He did watch the Women’s Championship match between Alexa Bliss and Mickie James, and that match really exceeded his expectations.
X-Pac wasn’t surprised to see the Cruiserweight Title flip back to Enzo Amore. WWE probably realizes that he’s the one guy who has drawn some attention to 205 Live, and having him carry the Title as a heel allows multiple babyfaces to rise up and challenge him.
