Title: Battleground
Post by: J-Dub on July 25, 2017, 01:49:03 am
What did everyone think about battleground?

I am starting to think these extra PPVs are almost a waste. Not that there wasn't some enjoyable moments, the prison match was decently done, some good spots. KO and AJ was a good match, and the Tag opener was good as well. The problem for me is, it was just good, SD is good, I always think the PPVs should be great.

What was your favorite parts? Least favorite parts?

It's amazing how much the smackdown brand has cooled off.  I haven't been as interested ever since they did that little shakeup after Wrestlemania.  I though this PPV was the culmination of that.  The definition of a 'meh' show.  I thought the tag team match was the match of the night, and the only match worth seeing to be honest. 

Nakamura/Corbin slow paced match with no heat and ended with a DQ, that also had no heat.

Styles/Owens probably the most disappointing match.. two workers I thought could deliver a classic, delivered a standard tv match with a bad finish sequence IMO.

Women's match was there

Zayn/ Kanellis was a match

The Flag match was a dud, could see that finish coming from a mile away.

Punjabi Prison match was okay, but way too long.  They tried to make it epic but I was not interested in another Orton/Mahal match.  I think they both work a slow placed style, which made for a slow paced match.  Fans weren't into it because they couldn't see anything.

Yeah their PPVs have seemed more like a weekly show, nothing special. RAW HAS BEEN LIKE THAT AS WELL, and I get they are trying to save for the big PPVs, but then why have them? The finishes booked have been crap. It feels like paint by numbers.

Pretty crap, to be honest. Finally killed my waning interest in WWE. I'll just torrent NXT and Takeovers/PPVs for now, cancelled my network subscription because I'm not paying for what they're giving.

I don't blame you what so ever. I am almost to that point, only holding on because im too lazy to break out my lap top to stream. Summerslam better be the best ever or they will end up losing a lot of subscribers.
