Can't stand when WWE books guys to look like dumbasses. It's destroyed by investment in Johnny Gargano. Ricochet breaking up that submission on the floor is the kinda shit Gargano would do. :lmao

Highly unlikely we get a finals of Elias vs. Corbin so it looks like Gable will actually be going all the way to the finals.

Cool but kinda stupid when you consider it could've been someone more believable like Ali.

I'm actually perfectly fine with Corbin making it to the finals as long as Corbin puts over Gable.

Corbin is actually the perfect foil to Gable and should be the guy to try keep the shorter Gable from winning before losing to him.

If Corbin wins, what the fuck.

The problem with Gable winning is I have kind of a hard time seeing anyone caring if he wins. I mean, I love Gable, but a lot of the audience will surely be pretty indifferent to him as King. Who knows, things could change pretty fast. Maybe just by essence of beating Corbin he'll win over a lot of fans.

I kinda tuned out when El Idolo and Ali lost. I knew the finals would resolve something like this.

I am hoping fan interest might peak with him defeating Corbin. I know I'd be happy for that small miracle.

What a viscous snap on that neck breaker on the floor. Put her on the shelf, me lady.

The whole tournament has kinda felt like WWE trying to constantly swerve and/or work fans. McIntyre, Owens and Murphy all out in the first round. Elias upsetting Ali, Gable upsetting Andrade. Baron in the finals. I would have much preferred for them to go with a safer finals like McIntyre vs. Ali, or Ricochet vs. Andrade instead of trying to buck everyone's expectations.

I'd have been pretty satisfied with either of those finals. Though more so for Ricochet and Andrade.

Because I really thought Andrade could use the win, but also Ricky and Cien would have killed a finals match.

WWE is definitely trying too hard to work the fans. I also think they lost faith in longer term booking.
