Really liked Night 1. I think Bianca winning was the right decision at a very unfortunate time, because now Sasha is 0-6 at Wrestlemania and that's genuinely unfair to her, especially considering she carried the blue brand's women's division for the back half of the pandemic year.
I'm still iffy on the Lashley/Drew match. On the one hand, this is by far Lashley's high point in WWE and I think he's been great. On the other hand, it's a shame Drew never got his WM win in front of a crowd.
Cesaro beating Rollins was a surprise, but hopefully leads to good things for him. He's underutilized
The Braun Strowman fight had no build up and was pretty pointless, but fine I guess. The New Day shouldn't have lost either, in my eyes, but at least the match was better. Bad Bunny was shockingly good.
Night 2 was a lot worse.
The Fiend loses again, in a really confusing and dumb way. Who gets knocked out by a single RKO these days? The Fiend is now substantially less strong in Kayfabe than the likes of Drew McIntyre and even people he's dominated like Rollins. I mean, I like Orton pretty well, but the Fiend lost his WM debut, and even though I genuinely don't like the Fiend that much, him losing was just the wrong decision booking wise. He's a far cry from the unstoppable monster who premiered last year, with loses to Oldberg, Reigns (although without taking a pin), and Orton. He shouldn't have that many loses so quickly if they want him to be an unstoppable monster
The Women's Tag Match was about what I expected. It's surreal how over with the crowd Tamina was though
KO vs. Sami Zayn was great but too short. Including Logan Paul did nothing except eat up match time for an already-too-short match. Still a really good one though
Riddle vs. Sheamus was good enough, but a little forgettable in my eyes.
Big E and Apollo Crews had a good match as well, but its stipulation was very strange and as much as I like Apollo, I wish Big E had retained
The Asuka vs. Rhea Ripley match felt too short and very strange, much like the whole angle honestly. I love Asuka and have liked Rhea for the past few and some change in NXT, but this match was just too short and had no build up or emotional impact. Also, Asuka was an absolute workhorse for the Raw Women's Division for basically an entire year, and it's a shame she couldn't get her big WM win this year. I don't think she's ever won as WM either which is a disgrace honestly for how good and reliable she is.
The main event was good but a little clunky. Very unpredictable and good overall though. I really liked how it kept you guessing and I wasn't really sure who would win throughout most of it. Very good physical performance all around, and probably the right decision. I'm glad Edge didn't win honestly. Timing isn't right, and I'm not at all a fan of someone stepping back in to Wrestling after years of not participating and just running roughshod over the division
Overall, Night 1 was very enjoyable and Night 2 had some very good matches, but was end-to-end not as good
