You know, these are good predictable insults by MJF, but the moment Punk picked the mic, he felt like he was more than a level beyond

This segment went into next gear when Punk picked the mic and by God it has remained there since

I think it’s hilarious that for years and years and years WWE opened every episode of RAW with some kind of extended talky segment or promo and in all that time I can honestly never recall them doing it as well as those guys just did…even once.

Seeing some hate for it on Twitter and don't get it. I know MJF isn't for everyone and his first lines were his usual shit, but as soon as Punk picked the mic, business went up, and then it remained genuinely great throughout, with great work by both men, not just with the insults but also plenty of reality to butress their work.

MJF's first lines being his usual was the perfect set up for him to get fired up when Punk roasted him. You could see him maybe looking shook for the first time before reloading with the big guns in reply.

Also an underrated part of why this was so much better than every 20 minute opening promo on Raw ever is both guys were talking like actual humans getting increasingly pissed at each other instead of robots awkwardly reciting a script loaded with verbiage you would never hear in real life.

Also, we didn't have Excalibur giggling at half the lines, or Jerry Lawler repeating the last thing either guy said, or Mark Madden bellowing "WOW!" to signal that This Means Something to Smart Fans. The announcers were quiet the whole time.

I hope Punk going that long against QT is actually part of the MJF angle because that didn't need to go past the commercial break unless they are trying to make a point out of Punk struggling with "low tier" guys.

I am seeing people complain about how it's taking time away from wrestling, like there isn't enough wrestling on Dynamite usually, with pictures of QT waiting. Like, my heart breaks for QT, but he can live with waiting in the back while they talk. In hindsight, I was wrong about complaining about him being booked, him getting cucked for Punk-MJF was perfect. 

Also heard people say that the only ones who would love this are the ones who just giggle at WWE wrestlers being name-dropped on TV, but like, those wrestlers were name-dropped in in the context of insults and their names made sense in that context. If Punk had called MJF a less-known Randy Orton, it wouldn't have made sense cuz some people actually do call MJF a Miz-lite for his insults, which was the point.

They kept mentioning on commentary that he was having an off night, so yeah, probably something to do with how some of MJF's comments had affected Punk

JR: "MJF really got into his head! This is all because MJF is in his head."

Excalibur: "..................... also, QT hit him below the belt during the commercial break."

Welp, rest of the show is probably gonna be lame, maybe Rosa/Hayter will be fine but that's it. 

No hopes for Danielson-Colt?
