I'm not going to stay up late enough to watch it, but I'll find it online tomorrow. I hope it's great. Both guys need it.

This from the guy who hates pats on the back, peanut butter sandwiches and rainbows. :)

I thought it was fun. Not as wacky as the TNA version and I kind of wish you could fire the fireworks at someone (stupid kids and losing hands) but it was still one of the most fun things I've seen on RAW in a long time. I was actually interested in a Bray Wyatt match so there's that. And it was a great introduction to the Hardy Compound.

And credit Jeremy Borash for continuity! With Bray losing his own home after Orton burnt it to the ground was brought up!

And maybe Bray will get rebooted into an interesting character now.

And...c'mon, it' like watching a real life person trying to fight a cartoon in it's own universe. That's just awesome. :)

I don't know why, but I want Bray to come back as Bray Hardy after the Lake Of Reincarnation, acting like the Hardys did in the early 2000's.

I'm somewhat ashamed to admit this, but I lean toward Prop's pov on this one.

Yes, it was corny af. Yeah, it was not as good as the original. But at least it acted as a change-up from the monotonous trash the E serves up week after week, and year after year.

The majority of E "storytelling" (word used loosely) these days basically consists of

Participant A : " I can wrestle better than you. "

Participant B " No, I can wrestle better than you! "

Both : " Let's wrestle! "

At least this acted as a temporary shock to that system. Even if it was a dorky sort of one.

Well, Ultimate Deletion was killing it on social media last night so there's that.

And I forgot to mention, I like Reby playing Bray's theme on piano.

I think I'm easier on it than most who have seen the other Deletion matches is that I accept that a large portion of the WWE audience needed to be introduced to the concept and I think they did a great job with that with showing and telling what all the locations were.
