But yeah that Cena promo rocked

He had me thinking, "damn, all promos should be done in an empty arena."

If WWE keeps alienating their fans, someday they will be. :lol:

Hilarious Cesaro quote from tonight:

"If you would have told me 10 years ago that I would wrestle Daniel Bryan in front of nobody... I would have believed you"

Cena/Wyatt should definitely be for the title and should be main eventing mania. Stupid stupid decision to put it on Goldberg.

Goldberg/Reigns, cool and all. It sells... But c'mon.

Smackdown wasn’t bad.

Gronk’s entrance and promo was actually good/entertaining. Hard to say how he would’ve been received if fans were there, but I thought he did well.

Miz/Morrison vs Heavy Machinery was a solid match. Ziggler on commentary was interesting and helped continue his feud with Otis.

Bayley/Sasha, Paige segment was okay — a little awkward.

Nothing against Roman, I actually like him as a person and think he’s good in the ring... but his promo skills.. ugh, it’s hard to believe how minimally he’s improved after years of being the top guy.

Anyone seen DBs tweets? Please please please give us a stable with Bryan, Gulak, and Gable!

The best part of live crowds eventually returning will be the universal disdain for Gronk.

Anyone else sensing the Funhouse match to be similar to a Final Deletion one where some segments will be pre-recorded?

Hoping for a part where the Dr. Of Thuganomics returns

Unfortunately, given that it's WWE, it'll probably end up a lot more like that godawful House of Horrors match between Wyatt and Orton.

I already love the Strowman/Wyatt storyline. Hope it has a long build to it. Have Braun and Bray (not The Fiend) team up again and win the tag titles. Keep The Fiend off TV for a while, especially now with no fans in attendance. Save the next Fiend appearance for when there's fans.

Cesaro should've won though.
I don't want to see DB in a brutal ladder match.

It's not really a traditional ladder match and it won't be live. I'm guessing that this type of a situation is actually increasing DB's longevity, where they can plan everything out, take all the time they need and take all the precautions in the world while still getting the perfect take.

Per Wikipedia, Kofi is a 9x tag champion. Big E is a 8x tag champion. And Xavier Woods is a 7x tag champion. How did that happen?

Basically if you were even remotely relevant in WWE the past decade you've probably had at least half a dozen title reigns.
