Oh my oh my oh my oh my… The more things change, the more they stay the same…Vince McMahon was still the selfish, egocentric old *sshole we (loved to hate), and Stone Cold Steve Austin coming out to cause carnage was something we could never got tired of. He barely spoke a word – IT DOESN’T MATTER. His charisma was still there, so was his menacing look. And then he did what he did best – dishing out Stunners to the McMahons and smashing beer cans on the second rope to celebrate. You really have to appreciate those nostalgia segments when done right. The pop created by 15990 fans in the Barclays Center tonight must be one of the biggest in the entire year.

Every Woman for Herself

So the next segment was a 4-on-4 tag team match between the good girls (Bayley, Sasha Banks, Asuka, and Mickie James) and the baddies (Nia Jax, Alicia Fox, Sonya Deville, and Mandy Rose). Seeing Paige out at ringside but not wrestling broke our collective hearts. Anyways, after a nondescript match, Banks put Alicia in the Bank Statement to get the victory to her team. Nothing special, at least until the post-match celebration when the victors were posing along one side of the ring, and Asuka tossed the other 3 over the top rope!

We absolutely loved the fact that Asuka showed her aggressiveness even towards her teammates. Through this segment, The Empress of Tomorrow was further positioned as the favorite to win the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match, and made the match much more anticipated. Super short interactions, many goals achieved. Absolutely nothing to complain about so far.

Truly. Rest. In. Peace.

We fail to see the confusion on the part of Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler regarding the last words of The Undertaker. The last sentence meant that The Phenom had officially retired. Since he would not be around anymore, his opponents could now truly live without fear of being destroyed by The Undertaker. In other words, they could “Truly. Rest. In. Peace.” Not so good commentary by the duo so far. Might just be mic rust, for all we know. Even The Undertaker’s point in his promo was not too valid. Why said “all had failed” when Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns are still living, breathing, and literally would be appearing on the very same show?

Anyways, we were just nitpicking a bit. The atmosphere at the Hammerstein Ballroom was surreal, and the stage was replicated very close to the classic set of ’93. Despite our slight criticism about ‘Taker’s segment, we still very much enjoyed and cherished his presence on Monday Night RAW.
