This show from start to finish far out did any expectation that I had for it. Every match from top to bottom was put together and executed better than I could of ever imagined. Okay the two tag matches on the card were probably the weakest of all the matches but they were still very entertaining. The first had a nice nostalgic feel to it as two Hall Of Famers defeated Alicia (who did a fantastic job replacing Alexa) and Mickie James (a legend in her own right). Over the years I have grown to really dislike Battle Royals they all go the same way and they are usually very predictable. Now this may of been done what predictable with Nia the clear favourite. But it was really enjoyable. I did like seeing female legends like Alundra Blaze and Ivory give it one last go. The most impressive performance in this match apart from maybe Ivory was Ember Moon. She was outstanding and proved she is ready to be given that next big push up the card. The one match I was looking forward to seeing the most on this show was the Mae Young Classic Final. I’m sure I was not the only one after what had been an amazing tournament this year. Both women gave everything you could ask of them and I just hope we see both a lot more in the future in the WWE. I thought the NXT title match between Baszler and Sane was the best match these two have had so far. Surely at some point they will go with the MMA Four Horsewomen vs WWE Four Horsewomen after the involvement of the other two in this match I’m certain that is what everyone wants to see down the road. Maybe this years Survivor Series is too soon but I’m sure it will be doable at some point in the future. The last women standing match was the best I have seen with that added stipulation in years from either women or men. If there was such a thing as the perfect match then this was it. The story that had been built for this contest and the way they continued to tell the story throughout the match was pure brilliance and proved why they are the two best in the world. I am happy Becky got the big win she so rightly deserves and I am really looking forward to seeing her face off against Rousey at Survivor Series ( I guess they may be saving Flair bs Rousey for Mania). I had very low expectations for the main event as the build for it had been piss poor at best. But it was actually a very good match and proved that I was wrong. Nikki Bella is an outstanding performer and did a lot to make this a very entertaining main event. Rousey continues to improve and is turning into one of the best champions the company have. Again this was an outstanding show and proved that the women can do it on their own and honesty do it better than men ever could dream of doing it. I hope we see a lot more shows like this.
