Good show, but far too long
28 April 2018 | by gridoon2019See all my reviews

With the exception of the non-match between Rusev and Roman Reigns, and the main event which is really just a beatdown by Brock Lesnar on Randy Orton (it gives you the - false - impression that the only move Lesnar knows is the german suplex), the wrestling in this PPV is of a generally high standard. But at 240 minutes, it may be too much of a good thing, especially when none of the 10 matches have any special stipulations. In the most notable matches, Sasha Banks and Charlotte have a solid, 3-star encounter, John Cena does new moves (!) and holds his own against AJ Styles (and an electric crowd), and Seth Rollins and Finn Balor put on a wrestling clinic. I would also like to point out that Naomi has perhaps the best entrance out of the entire WWE roster, as well as the best wrestling costume. *** out of 4.
