Final Verdict: 5/10

Well. This was…a show. Matches were OK here. Two of them were good. I s–t you not. Drew wrestled twice and it was only slightly nice. Priest beat Miz again. Shayna got stuck doing…Nia duty? Is that what I should call it? Riddle violated Randy. I mean, Riddle stole a victory from Randy. That match was the best thing on the show. Asuka and Charlotte had another solid bout between them that was not their most dynamic, but it was good. T-Juice and Mitch lost their masks and don’t look like Barbie dolls from Hell anymore. Shelton was great teaming with Cedric against Kylie and Kendall Jenner. Oh! Remember Nia? Shayna told her to shape up or get your ass kicked…by Shayna! Weren’t expecting that, were you? These matches were of moderate length, but most of the show was about the same old promos as last week. This wasn’t a very…Alexa! She said the word bitch when talking about breaking a girl’s arm in elementary school. Oh, and then that doll bit the T.V. screen…the bitch. Anyway, Seth MacFarlane came out of my penis and this show was a 5 out of 10. I get talking dog money. Okay. I’m done. I love you. See ya next time amigo! Adios!
