Firefly Funhouse was amazing and completely and utterly bonkers!
Yeah I think tonight will be very divisive in terms of opinions. Lots of things people will either love or hate. Fun house was whack. I preferred the Bone Yard match but in many ways they are very different things with different aims. Still pissing myself over the cena dead arms segment!

Rhea vs Flair was probably the best match for me. I wanted Rhea to win but it makes total sense to throw Charlotte down to NXT in the hopes of a few more viewers. Interesting to see if they move Rhea up or have her come back for revenge after the winner of next weeks ladder match is done with Charlotte.

Orton vs Edge was a real slug fest and fight. I felt it probably went on far too long but I know other people would have loved every minute of it.

Tag match wasn't anything special but the Bianca run in saved it. Like where they might go forward with that. Likewise Black vs Lashley and Ziggler vs Otis. Would have been different in front of a crowd.

Smackdown Womens match was slightly better than expected but I had basement expectations. Some weird awkward moments but it was passable.

So many of the matches would have been so different with a live crowd. Happy but gutted for Drew. Bittersweet for him. While I thought he had to be winning the still managed to sucker me in a little that Brock might pull off a win that would break the IWC. It did cross my mind maybe they would hold off his win and let him fight Lesnar in the future with a live crowd to give Drew his moment. Glad they didn't and I look forward to his reign and a champion around every week.

All in all a much better than expected couple of nights with some memorable moments, a couple of good set ups going forward and mainly the right decisions in title changes/results.
Chris Hughton, simply the best manager we had from 2009-2010.

Charlotte match was best imo. Edge match was just too long and hurt by no crowd. Put Drew over super strong again shame no crowd. The Firefly thing was a mixed bag. Didn't hate, didn't like it.

I preferred night 1, night 2 felt like a slog in comparison.

Firefly Funhouse was hilarious though.

Wasn't a fan of the funhouse, just seemed overlay daft.

Night 1 the better of the 2 for me, overall thought they done a decent job given the circumstances
Could it have feasibly climbed high enough to leave the atmosphere? ???

Pretty much only enjoyed the firefly funhouse. Most the matches were fine, but the flatness of the zero crowd is killer. Not just a wwe issue obviously. However, those two main title matches. Just abysmal. At least the part time old fellas aren't champion anymore. I guess.
