“Iu0026#39;ve become a real wrestling cynic over the past few years, I love the industry but Iu0026#39;m so very tired of what itu0026#39;s become. Pandering to sponsors, blatant nepotism and shockingly bad writing. You donu0026#39;t have to watch WWE, there are other companies but if youu0026#39;re a fan itu0026#39;s hard to avoid their monopolized product.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI love the MITB concept, for that reason Iu0026#39;d say this event is my 3rd most anticipated annual ppv after the Rumble u0026amp; Mania. And this year, this dropped the ball again. Not entirely, it has its moments but as usual its a combination of baffling booking and missed opportunities.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIu0026#39;ll break it down without any spoilers.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe kickoff featured only one match, the outcome was not what I expected and considering recent events made absolutely no sense. Some booking needs to be predictable because itu0026#39;s logical, this wasnu0026#39;t.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe womenu0026#39;s MITB match was solid enough but felt too short. Itu0026#39;s like they just bounced from spot to spot instead of actually having a wrestling match. The outcome wasnu0026#39;t what I expected or what I wanted, but I walked away happy enough.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe US title match was an embarrassment, why would you do that? Do you not realize how much of a slap in the face it is to the fans when you advertise a match and then deliver……..that!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eShane vs Miz…..again. Please Shane, retire. You competing with the actual talent damages their credibility and your punches are worse than the early 2000u0026#39;s divas.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eCruiserweight match, as usual people couldnu0026#39;t have cared less. Turning Nese from a jobber to champion overnight at Mania was bizarre and fans clearly donu0026#39;t appreciate it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRAW womenu0026#39;s championship had the logical conclusion and was a passable enough affairu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSmackdown womenu0026#39;s championship was a real double edged sword. It angered me, frustrated me and made me facepalm but they managed to recover it into a memorable and well deserved finale.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eReigns/Elias. What was the point of this match? The outcome was never in question, the match quality alike Joe/Rey was just plain offensive and it accomplished absolutely nothing.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLars/Lucha, pointless.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWWE Championship, strong in ring performances from both guys. Canu0026#39;t argue with anything they did here.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eUniversal Championship, incredible match as we all knew it would be.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMenu0026#39;s MITB, average quality wrestling with a finish that will anger and frustrate a lot of people.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall itu0026#39;s an average of 4, not even an average quality ppv. With all the walkouts, people sitting out their contracts, lowest ratings in the history of the company and new competition in AEW youu0026#39;d think WWE would be stepping up their game and providing a better product than this.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Good:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSome decent in ring performancesu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOne great surpriseu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Bad:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSome ridiculous counterproductive bookingu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAbout half the matchesu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eClosing moments”
