He won yeah, everybody is calling it a great match but I thought it sucked. I’m tired of the “Grrr me big buff man Lesnar, me suplex you 20 times because me so strong, but oh no, me can’t take any offense at all or else me go sleep and I lose” like wtf two hits into the ring post, a crash through a table, and 3 stomps is all it takes? He’s supposed to be this unstoppable force but as soon as he takes literally any offense he becomes a fucking toddler crawling around and dripping fluids everywhere
It's called selling. :lmao Brock is one of the best in the biz when it comes to looking legitimately battered. Let's also acknowledge that 99% of the roster loses to 1 curb stomp so falling to 3 of them doesn't make him look weak in the slightest.

I also have to laugh at the concern for Raw's ratings. When was the last time the ratings were anywhere near where WWE wants them? It's going to take a long time and a lot of fixing the product to get them steadily improving again.

My main concern isn’t at the curb stomp thing, it’s the fact that after a few bumps to the ring post and getting put through a table, most wrestlers are expected to, and would, get up and continue for another 10-20 minutes and not just crawl around and drip sweat onto the mat for 5 minutes and then “OMG POP UP REVERSE INTO F5” like what is that shit, literally any damage done to Brock renders him completely useless

Well they shouldn't. Taking bumps into the post and then crashing through the table should significantly slow a wrestler. And then a couple of finishers on top of that? Dude should absolutely have a difficult time getting up. Honestly, it's just good psychology to me. I don't want everyone to kick out of five finishers and act like everything's gravy after having a limb worked over for 20 minutes. I do enjoy a good spotty sprint from time to time as well but I prefer to see wrestlers act hurt after taking a beating.

I mean I won't make the case that Rollins is a draw. He certainly hasn't been. But the reason people turn away from WWE is so much deeper than who's the champion. It's all about the writing, bland characters and uninspired presentation... among other things. Fortunately, things do seem to be on the up and up the last month or two. Let's hope they keep things going. And let's hope they book Rollins wisely to get him over and keep him over.

Lmao what is with you and sweat? You think it's light work wrestling a match? He can't control his sweat.

No it’s just that for every drop of sweat any other wrestler drips, Brock drips like 500 and he’s always in a full sweat within the first 30 seconds of all his matches
Well yeah...he's a sweater, that happens with athletes with high testosterone.

Rock sweats cutting a promo.

It is just what a level athletes do.....their metabolism is higher than regular people. Or he has hyperhidrosis.

He can't control it lmao. You can't say you don't like a match over someone's bodily functions

Yeah that main event ruled. The rest of the show was alright to me, definitely a bit of a letdown but only really compared to recent SummerSlams which have been consistently my favorite PPVs of the year, this one isn't gonna go down as a classic for me, but I did really love parts of it and I was entertained throughout.
