@tonythomas8410: Everything about that match was phenomenal. Storytelling through action, without saying a single word.

@SlothfulPunk: To me, Nakamura is already a face. Just turn Styles heel, and it'll work out perfectly.

@lionheartssj1: It seems, according to Rousey and backstage sources, that Rousey didn't know what she was doing until 10 minutes before she walked out there. WWE should have given Asuka a couple more minutes to celebrate, and just sent Rousey out to stand on the ramp for a minute, if not less. As it was, it seemed like they were winging it. They might have planned that out better in hindsight.

@zero_juice: I think that even if Roman won in that situation, things would turn out okay. Because at least the crowd reaction would be consistent with the way they book him.

Though I agree. Braun's incredible, and deserves a long title run. Such a quick learner, and so much improved from when he was a Wyatt.

@thelostscribe: The no off-season is a problem too, I agree. A lot of that goes back to them all being signed as independent contractors. Without a union or any collective bargaining (thanks Hogan), that's unlikely to change. To expect these guys to work as much as they do, and also expect them to drive themselves to their own gigs, is a bit much.

Thanks for the thoughtful response, and for taking the time to read. Much obliged.

@swantn5: It's contextual. What's acceptable risk for someone with a healthy neck is high risk for someone who was advised to never get in the ring again.

@truthier: You're right and wrong. Most wrestlers do not plan out move-for-move (Randy Savage is a notable exception to this; he choreographed his matches extensively) But most wrestlers, especially today, do more than plan out the finish. They'll also plan out the notable spots where the momentum of the match shifts.

Add to this that they were wrestling this exact match at several house shows before this one, and they almost certainly knew the sequence of events beforehand. There might be small variations. But a blind kick leading into a hot tag would almost certainly have been discussed beforehand.
