Besides the cage match, the best part of tonight's show was Damien Sandow wrestling thin air. The main event was a decent match, and I like the idea of Seth Rollins as a Paul Heyman guy. The crowd was on the verge of mutiny in several matches, especially during The New Age vs. Gold and Stardust. I don't get The New Age Gimmick and I think all 3 men are strong enough on their own. I was hoping for a rebooted Nation of Domination, but instead we get a weird positivity cult who would be more at home at The Centre from Boy Meets than in the squared circle. The crowd started chanting NXT during this match for a reason. That reason is that the WWE Universe wants quality wrestling, not corny gimmicks and misused talent stuck in roles with no future.
