  1. Per dot com, tonight's accurate and complete lineup includes: Universal Championship Match Seth Rollins (c) vs. AJ Styles SmackDown Women’s Championship Match Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match Intercontinental Champion Finn Bálor vs. Sami Zayn vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton vs. Ricochet vs. Baron Corbin vs. Ali vs. Andrade Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match Bayley vs. Naomi vs. Carmella vs. Natalya vs. Ember Moon vs. Mandy Rose vs. Dana Brooke vs. Nikki Cross WWE Championship Match Kofi Kingston (c) vs. Kevin Owens Raw Women’s Championship Match Becky Lynch (c) vs. Lacey Evans Steel Cage Match The Miz vs. Shane McMahon Roman Reigns vs. Elias United States Championship Match Samoa Joe (c) vs. Rey Mysterio WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match Tony Nese (c) vs. Ariya Daivari Kickoff Match SmackDown Tag Team Champions Daniel Bryan & Rowan vs. The Usos On paper and before booking gets in the way there is no reason not to expect good things from Becky/Charlotte, while AJ/Rollins, Kofi/KO, Men's MITB and Usos vs. Bryan/Rowan all look promising on paper. The rest of the show doesn't really do much for me. But let's get to what's really important: how's everyone handling the show vis a vis Thrones tonight? I plan on watching until Thrones starts, then perhaps popping back in here or catching up throughout the week. We'll see how tired I am.

    RIP Silver King

    I can't honestly say I remember the performances, but I absolutely associate the name Silver King with fun tags from the Nitro days. Will have to revisit those at some point. Thoughts and prayers to his friends and family.

  4. Its a definite buzzkill for fans, but no one's holding a gun to wrestlers' heads. Every contract has two signatures on it.
  5. I was giving the baby a bottle during AJ/Joe/Rey and thought I was distracted because it just wasn't holding my attention. So after putting him to sleep I watched it again. Quite disappointing. I'm not quite sure what it is but everything felt just a tad too slow and choreographed, aside from the finish. Everyone was going through the motions and it was quite disjointed for a WWE triple threat match, which often exceed expectations and make good use of the numbers. Not on this occasion. Am I crazy or was Becky/Alicia Fox a pretty solid TV match? Pretty straight forward until the finish, but the opening headlock action was strong and Becky took a nice bump outside as well. Becky's offense in a straight match still leaves a lot to be desired and her promos are becoming a bit too cute, but this over-delivered. That Bray Wyatt business -- is this something about drugs? I don't even think I'm kidding. Literally no idea what I watched, whether he was a heel or babyface, if it was remotely genuine or pure trolling, or something else entirely. Just beyond confused. AJ/Seth is at least a fresh match on paper. Hopefully both can pull out something solid that night. Although going head to head with the Thrones finale it will have to wait until another night.

    How Do You Present Wrestling TV In 2019?

    I'm not sure if this was an intended nod at NXT, but its one reason I find the show stays a lot fresher. Part of this comes down to math as they've got a lot (and potentially more in the fall if Smackdown gets a 3rd hour) of hours to fill, and I'm not sure there's a good way to do that. Overexposure just doesn't happen on NXT TV because 60 minutes isn't enough time to touch on every program much less burn out every potential matchup within a few months. Simpler is better, especially when we're running on over 2 decades of TV written around authority figures pulling levers. I don't quite want to say anything else would be better, but its almost the case as something different would at least give the TV a new coat of paint simply because its different.

    Post-Mania TV 2019

    So I really wanted to like Balor/Zayn but it seemed like a match that was just there outside of Balor's nasty dropkick. Nice heel promo though. Really curious to see what they have in store for the main event. With Smackdown moving to Fox in the fall and the women's belts unified (temporarily?) I could see a clean finish tonight but my gut says angle alert.
