WWE - Who is hyped!?
Is it just me, or does Seth's chair gimmick feel really awkward somehow? I mean he's supposed to be a face champion, yet he pummels guys (ok, sure, heels) left and right with a chair all the time now suddenly. I mean, should I cheer...?
Extreme Rules was pretty nice, the show had a bunch good matches. Obviously I liked my man Cesaro showing his skills against Black out there, that was a solid match. The main event was also entertaining (and damn, Lacey's sexy). Corbin hitting Becky with End of Days, lol. Pretty boring with Lesnar again, though, but SummerSlam's coming and he's the Big Four guy around WWE.
I liked SmackDown this week a lot, practically watched the whole show, hasn't happened for a long time. Liv Morgan on TV finally, yeah! And Charlotte, too. Ember Moon's getting a championship match feels fresh, I dig it. And this new angle with Owens is something I really want to see how it evolves.
On RAW Rollins got his rematch against Lesnar in SummerSlam, okay. Bray Wyatt finally arrived with that creepy mask. And Natalya earned a championship match against Becky? Sorry Nattie, but I feel like this'll turn out Triple Threat eventually still. Needs more hype.
A big question, though. Where is Sasha Banks? We haven't seen her since WrestleMania. I really thought she'd return in either of the shows this week for SummerSlam, but no. And same thing with Ronda, essentially, she's been away as long as well.

I was hoping that on the heels of his good match at Extreme Rules, Taker would be added to the title picture. Imagine a Fatal-4-Way for the title at SummerSlam between Lesnar, Rollins, Reigns and Taker, the 3 guys with the most history with Lesnar, to settle it once and for all, that would be fun!
Now I just hope Rolling regains the title because I don't want another year of champ Lesnar showing up once every 3 months.
Overall, I still hate the fact that the two rosters are leaking into each other, it's become super confusing, but it looks like with the current Shane/Owens storyline on SD they might end up dialing it down. I'm not getting my hopes up though.
