    Sweat….desire…perseverance. It all paid off. The belt is testament to that but the passion still lingers, it must.

    Loved the show this week. Was almost surreal to see such a packed arena. So awesome.

    Bryan vs Omega was crazy. Tremendous. I had a strong feeling that it would go to a draw, but I didn't even realise that 30 mins had gone by when the bell rang!

    Punk cut a good promo. How it's done!

    MJF vs Pillman Jr was a fine match. A nice comedown from the previous events.

    Black vs Cody was very well done. They totally read the room. Great that Black won. Loved it. But remember, something, something, Cody is Triple H burying everyone...

    FTR vs Darby/Sting was fantastic! STING DID A FREAKIN' CROSSBODY!! HE'S 62!!! Finish was superb. FTR are brilliant.

    Main event was great. I was wondering if they'd do a title change. They did the right thing. Britt is still killing it and and I look forward to seeing what happens next for both.

    Cody destroyed Black to the point Black couldn't even do his finish and then Cody needed both his own corner distracting him and Black cheating to lose. The mist wasn't enough, Cody had to get hit by Arn also lol

    Black has been a destroyer and looked like a weakling last night. Cody lost and still managed to put himself over by saying "you need all of this extra shit to beat me".

    Dude, you're reading way too much into this. Cody lost. Cody didn't destroy anyone. It was a fairly even match.

    Black has been booked like a killer and couldn’t walk by the end of the match and needed two separate outside things to win.

    Does Black look like a killer after last night?

    I’m cool with him cheating to win with the mist, but did they need that shitty Arn spot? Did they need Black looking completely destroyed and not being able to walk?

    Cody lost and still didn’t put the guy over.

    Black is fine. A hard fought match which he won. Nobody was buried, everyone got over. Again, you're reading way too much into this. Haven't heard a single soul say otherwise.

    We’ll see if you have this same energy after they have their inevitable gimmick match with convoluted overbooked spots spread throughout it.

    Arn's bolier getting him knock off the apron was the best part of the show.

    No different than Miro being booked like a killer and having distractions and cheating to win against Kingston. Kingston beat the fuck out of Miro too and nobody gave a shit. Difference is Kingston is a lot more over with the hardcore crowd and Cody isn't so nobody is complaining

    Standard pro wrestling booking. As long as it's exciting, I don't care what kind of match they have.

    I disagree with Eddie and Miro being the same.

    I’m commenting on Max saying the match was “very well done”. Do you think Cody and Black was “very well done”?

    Outside of the right guy getting his hand raised (for now) that match blew.

    I liked the match. Better than the main event and MJF v Pillman but not as good as FTR v Sting and Darby or Danielson v Omega

    The match would've been fine without Arn botching it at the end.

    I now like the idea of Cody being this delusional Homelander-esque heel, who thinks he's the hero, but in reality he's the villain.

    I would love to see Cody flip this into a heel run. Guy was a heat magnet in ROH and New Japan during the “Bullet Club is fine” days.

    I hope it starts soon though, because him working as a babyface with the way he books himself is making his segments become piss breaks.

    Dude is hitting that John Cena level of fans wanting to see the babyface lose.

    I hope it’s exciting also, but if it ends with babyface Cody triumphing against all odds after a bunch of overbooked fuckery and not evolving his character at all, then I’ll still be on team Cody can fuck off.

    They surprised me with the MJF win last night. I figured after weeks of truly burying the Pillman family for the heat, they'd let Jr get over. But nope. Good stuff.
