Really strong effort with solid matches throughout and some great spots as well.
Nice of them give Sorensen a bit of time on the show.
Ion is probably my least favourite of the 4 in the Ultimate X match but as has been mentioned he's a contracted talent and it's great for the X Division to have an actual character too. The heat generated by using Sorensen worked excellently and he could be a real smug bastard style champion.
Also lots of praise for Sonjay Dutt and AJ Styles. Both seemed to get hurt early on but battled through to finish their matches.
Styles Clash off the ramp through the table was awesome.
Pleased to see Joe get a big win. Nice way to do it too having Angle choked out rather than tapping. Perhaps a sign of things to come? Joe coming off as a legitimate badass who WILL hurt you if you're in his way.
Aries and Roode did everything anticipated of them. Excellent back and forth stuff and despite inadvertently catching a spoiler could still get a sense how it could have gone either way.
Austin Aries has everything to be a great champion. No doubting that. I am surprised he won it though. Things seem to be built up and ready for Roode to have been the dominant, by October a damned near unbeatable machine of a champion but now he's lost that's all gone.
In a way though it's great. As said, Aries is a top star so it's not like the title matches will suffer. It's more exciting having it be unpredictable and not knowing which way they will go with things.
Roode vs Storm was assumed to be a lock for BFG but if they go that way now for the title it won't have the same effect. Anything could work though. Aries vs Joe has been mentioned in here.
Get AJ up the rankings and have "the face of the company" against "the face of the greatest man who ever lived".
Angle can put on a match with just about anyone.
RVD, Storm, Hardy even Daniels.
They have a wealth of options and I'm looking forward to watch and see, as long as Aries doesn't lose a rematch next month
