I enjoyed the show, hopefully the weekly shows will get better, did not mind Lesnar coming out at end just hope those cameramen and Ali are ok, apparently he got busted open really bad.
I feel the only way they will get viewers back is by making each show unpredictable.
Th e hardcore wrestling fans can find great wrestling elsewhere.
I watched the show off and on, but found it to be better that the last few big shows.
Modern fans don’t want unpredictability. They want Brock and everybody else wrestling on every show 12 times a month. And they want everybody to have a belt. Hard to be unpredictable when fans wail in agony the second somebody doesn’t show up or loses a match.
I enjoyed the Two women's title matches story to it. I didn't like Becky losing the Smackdown title... but, if something provokes some type of emotion than its a good thing. I liked the Rollins/AJ match. Brock coming back was a shock to me, so once again it provoked an emotion.

I enjoyed the card quite a bit.
The way the women's division storyline played out over the few matches was really well done and Becky's loss of the title is balanced out by the strain of two matches and interference. Plus Bayley's win was probably the emotional high point of the night.
Of course, they followed all that up with one of the best main roster WWE matches in ages. Just great stuff from AJ & Seth. The way there were able to get the crowd back after the Bayley win is a testament to how great they both are and the use of multiple near falls played out really well.
The men's MITB was a car crash spot fest with some really cool moments and I for one loved Brock coming out and stealing the win.
The nice thing about the show as a whole is that it felt like it capitalized on some things that have been building for a while whilst also setting the table for some future stuff. I'm cautiously optimistic that we're going to see some more focus and long term stories playing out as we head into the Smackdown on Fox debut, not to mention the competition from AEW.
