Bryan was already on his way out and losing the title to EDGE is a big no-no. He promised he would stack 'em both and did it. People cheered. Yes! Yes! Yes!

Roman was the only wrestler at WM37 who had serious heel heat.

By the way, it's worth remembering that Edge was legitimately the most over babyface at that Mania, even getting cheered over Bryan. A year later, he's a heel who gets "we don't care" chants during his promos. Yet another bang-up job by WWE creative.

Bryan didn't even want to be in the match, let alone win it or not put Roman completely over lol. He wished Roman faced Edge in a singles match but Vince wanted him to make it a Triple Threat. (this is according to Bryan's own word btw).

That's irrelevant, the point is Roman is a heel like HHH who doesn't make anyone or put anyone over. Exactly the same as HHH reign of terror, its about the product that the viewers see, not the backstage politics.

What Bryan wanted is not important to creative end of the product, at the end of the match Roman had killed two babyfaces and left no one to make money with later in the year.   

I know it's not Roman who's booking this mess, so there is the big difference between him and HHH, but we as the viewers still suffer the bad booking and lack of top babyfaces to get behind. 

Perception is reality as Vince says and the reality is WWE booking is as bad as when HHH was on top for building future babyfaces.

Because no one else is booked remotely strong or even like a top star on his level, apart from brock Lesnar in the build up. But Lesnar got owned in the wrestlemaina match and left no interest for a rematch.

They spent YEARS making Raquel be that badass with a dumb back pose just to have her be a smiling face lololol

at least they had her roll the R's in her name so that we understood she is of Spanish heritage.

She mentioned she would get told not to smile all the time in NXT, only to get immediately told to smile more once she got to the main roster.

Developmental, everybody!

If that's closer to how she is in real life, better.

But hey, SD even had two people upset they didn't answer to an open challenge. That is an uncommon detail they never get right. 

So far an excellent episode.

In your somewhat regular reminder that NXT:UK is still a thing that exists, they had their 200th episode this week. Smith & Carter/Gallus and Devlin/Dragunov were both worth checking out.
