Russo points out that all five competitors who competed in the main event of RAW are on the same level due to 50/50 booking, and Richards adds that wins and losses simply don’t matter anymore. Hamin adds that Balor’s offence in this match was some of the worst he’s seen.
Moving on to Smackdown Live, Russo was confused by Ziggler’s return to WWE. Ziggler vacated the United States Title several weeks ago and ran off, only to return last night with his entrance music reinstated, failing to cut a promo to explain his actions.
Russo points out that this show lost him right out of the gate with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn attacking Ziggler and Baron Corbin. He doesn’t think it’s believable to have those two guys beating people up. They’re “Fatty” and “Dopey” to him, and he’ll never be able to take them seriously.
Richards thought there was one very reckless spot in the Charlotte/Sarah Logan match. Just a few weeks after Paige’s career was ended by a blind blow to the back, Logan speared Charlotte blindly from behind. He points out that these blind blows to the spine need to stop because they are very dangerous and the smallest error can have catastrophic results.
