-Ross on Roman Reigns: "Roman Reigns is on track to become what WWE wants him to be. I believe in this athlete and feel that he simply needs time and not to be force fed the audience and he will end up being the star that WWE wants/needs. Reigns match with Big Show was a pleasant surprise and arguably the best match on the show."
Powell's POV: Reigns has delivered big in three consecutive pay-per-view matches. He has gained momentum with each of these matches, but the problem I see is that he loses momentum via his mic work in between those pay-per-view matches. He's definitely taken a big step forward in the ring and hopefully he can do the same with his mic work.
-Ross on Sheamus: "Sheamus is on track to become a hit as a villain if he continues to perfect the nuances necessary to do so. He's a big, bully of a man who seems to enjoy his bad guy positioning. His match with Ziggler provided me with a surprising outcome. Thought the ass kissing phase went a little long but in the end, no pun intended, Ziggler got a win and has an issue while Sheamus left with heat. Good for both."
Powell's POV: Sheamus is really good in his bully heel role. Neville is the popular pick to win King of the Ring and I certainly wouldn't complain if he did, but my "money" is on King Sheamus getting the nod.
-Ross on New Day winning the WWE Tag Titles: "Loved the tag team title match and have no issues with New Day becoming tag champions as long as they work diligently in learning how be a great villain trio ala the Freebirds but that might be asking too much. Now the best team in WWE in years, Kidd and Cesaro, can chase which is a good thing and can add more relevancy to the tag titles which have been somewhat cold in recent months."
Powell's POV: That was a hell of a tag title match. New Day have gone from horrible babyfaces to relevant heels. I hope Kidd and Cesaro are spotlighted as babyfaces going forward and don't take a backseat to The Lucha Dragons.
