The Super Show-Down was in many ways one of the biggest spectacles WWE has put up in recent times. Let us find out how much fun it actually was.


The New Day hold on to their titles

The New Day (c) def. The Bar: This was the light-hearted bout that we all expected it to be. The Bar kept up their losing streak at major events that began when they lost to Nicholas and Strowman at Wrestlemania.

The crowd was energetic and this was actually a fun match where it seemed like both teams where playing around with their moves and were given greater freedom. Sheamus stopping halfway through the 10 beats of the Bodhran and the unique double team finish employed by New Day was great.

The silliness was also kept to a minimum which made this match quite fun as the focus was more on the actual wrestling. Great start to the Show-Down.

Becky uses heel tactics and still gets cheered

Charlotte Flair def. Becky Lynch (c) via disqualification: Maybe the issue is Becky Lynch’s entrance theme song as it is so upbeat. Like everywhere else, Charlotte was greeted with boos while Becky was cheered massively.

This was also probably the first time we saw Becky using heel tactics mid-match and WWE totally screwed it up. She used the flimsiest of methods to get disqualified. She somehow got her hands on the title, while Charlotte had her in the figure eight, which Becky used to hit Charlotte.

It was silly and no amount of hype by the commentary team helped. It was like a movie that built up to an excellent crescendo before copping out using some silly deus ex machina.

The Irony in all this was that Becky was actually cheered despite all of this. Whatever WWE is trying here is falling flat and they need to do a double turn ASAP.

Cena and Lashley run through Elias and Owens

John Cena & Bobby Lashley def. Kevin Owens & Elias: One thing was clear from the very outset. WWE was protecting John Cena as he was barely in this match for a few seconds.

[adace-ad id=”7792″]

Lashley spent the crux of the match being beaten up by Owens and Elias until he was able to tag in Cena who finished the match with his Sixth Move of Doom and it is silly despite the move’s awesome backstory. It is worse than Big Show’s WMD.

The match was meant to be a crowd-pleaser but it didn’t seem like the crowd was all too pleased.

The boos were definitely louder and while the post-match promo felt sincere, the overall match was not up to the standard and it was one of those affairs where you are reminded that it is a house show you watching and not a PPV.
