Triple H challenges The Undertaker one last time

This is why the guys from the attitude era were so awesome. Think about it. Why would you want to see two old men wrestle when you have so much fresh talent around? It is because of the story they tell and the awesome amount of feelings associated with such matches.

Triple H’s promo was perfect giving a nice nod to the retirements of HBK and The Phenom while also hearkening back to the good old days. We cannot wait for the gong to ring one more time and feel like kids again.

Dean Ambrose has his first official match since his return

We finally got to see what a bulked up Ambrose could do in the ring. He found the perfect opponent in Dolph Ziggler and if WWE are holding back his heel turn for the time being then this is a great way to go.

The match was hard-hitting and the wrestling style of these two men complement each other perfectly. There is that unpredictability in the way these two wrestle and it was fun to see. This time it was Rollins’ turn to have Ambrose’s back. Ambrose obviously won and it was a fun match.

Curt Hawkins loses for the 219th time

Hope this Curt Hawkins gimmick is leading to a payoff rather than another unresolved storyline. As always, Elias put on a nice in-ring segment where he again gets interrupted. The match was short but perfect for the situation. It was a squash match that was enjoyable.

The bigger picture, however, is still very unclear as it felt like Elias was in a feud with Lashley a couple of weeks ago but apparently that is forgotten now.

Is there a rift in Titus World Wide?

Apparently that is the direction WWE are seeming to take here. The backstage segment teased the fact that Crews and Brooke no longer have faith in Titus O’Neil. The match that followed with the AOP was decent but it raises two major questions. If Titus and Crews are set to feud then what happens to AOP and weren’t The AOP supposed to be next big thing in the tag division? Why is WWE continuing this travesty against good tag teams?
