    The Young Bucks doing the noncommittal heel turn is an interesting storyline. Yeah, Omega is their buddy and he's turned heel. So they do a babyheel turn because they can't stand to beat up their old Bullet Club partner.

    More women's tag teams need cool names like men's teams do. Just saying.

    They don’t give a shit about women’s tag teams and their booking. Just randomly throw two women together and now they’re a team.

    And when they do get a cool name, they’re broken up. See The IIconics, Fire & Ice, etc. At least they put the Riott Squad back together sans Logan.

    Tjey can’t even keep women’s tag teams together long enough without the “can they get along” storyline. Now you want them to actively think up nicknames?

    Poor Adam Cole. It's tough enough living up to past no-holds-barred matches. He's gotta live up to past no-holds-barred matches in his own household.

    Well, at least there is a doctor in his house.

    Helluva match. O’Reilly’s back looked like a roadmap to Tahoe.

    Overall, I thought Night 1 was better than Night 2, but that no-holds-barred match was excellent. I'm thinking that may be Cole's swan song for NXT and they send him to Raw or Smackdown. I kinda hope they send O'Reilly up to Raw and put the U.S. belt on him and let him hold it at least six or seven months to build him up, but I have a feeling we'll see him with the North American title in NXT.

    Interesting discussion on this weeks Masked Man pod about what should be the first “live pop” Saturday night based on music, who deserves it etc. They kind of settled on Seth or New Day. I think New Day the the best choice

    Based on Sasha Banks making the rounds saying she’s main eventing it sounds like it’ll be Drew.

    Mixed feelings. Drew deserves the pop but I dont think the crowd will go crazy for him. And I think Lashley deserves the main event just as much as Banks, if not more.

    You cant discuss Banks/Belair closing the show without the identity of it all.....so I’m forced to wonder, has a black man ever raised the title at the end of a Mania? Kofi didn’t close the show, the one main event title match Rock won also didnt close the show....Rock did raise his hand at the close of once in a lifetime so that counts I suppose

    A Becky return = biggest pop of the weekend, over whatever happens with either of the universal/world titles?

    Mr. T in Wrestlemania I and Lawrence Taylor at WM 11.
    Rock also beat Cena to close WM 28.

    I kind of hope Becky doesn't return at Mania, just because we're expecting it now. The show is already so loaded that its two nights, I don't think you also need her return.
