Did everyone enjoy the special Sunday Night Raw this wee.....wait, what? Oh, I'm sorry, I'm being told that was supposed to be a pay per view. Huh.

Seriously, I know since the network became a thing that they put little to no effort into distinguishing between any PPVs besides the big four, but aside from the women's and tag title matches, there was nothing on that show that would have looked out of place on your average Raw, and even those we've seen that quality on Raw.

I`ve read some people think that Cena got buried tonight and this was kind of a "thanks for all you`ve done for us,now go f**k off" to him

I don't think he got buried. He was "passing on the torch". Another one for Roman's collection of torches. But, they did treat that segment a bit too much like a retirement match. I think I read he is going to shoot a film? That was just uncomfortable to watch.

Oh, and that awkward post match interview with Jason Jordan. Yikes, that was cringy.

decent No Mercy. it should be noted that the Miztourage didn't even actually get involved with the match itself until Jordan targeted them. would have been nice to see Finn bring out his good brothers (Gallows and Anderson) to mess with Bray, but oh well. Ceasro pulled a Foley and lost a couple teeth. and that rap for WWE 2K18 was some of Snoop's best work in years.

You know, it really sucks that we're basically going to be in another holding pattern until Wrestlemania since they're telegraphing Brock v. Roman for the main event. I don't know how many torches this guy needs to be passed onto him but it kinda sucks that everything is once again being shoved aside so Vince can attempt to get Roman over for the third year in a row.

Vince will pass as many torches to Roman until everyone accepts Roman as the new face of the company.

You WILL love Roman! One way or another!

Not sure who all watched Raw Talk, but Cena got a little emotional at one point when Jerry Lawler brought up if we've seen the last of him. One of the most telling lines Cena said after that was, "I'm not gone, but things are definitely changing for me." He also brought up that he's now 40 and been doing this for 15 years and that he doesn't know how much longer his body will allow him to perform at the elite level he expects of himself.

On Raw Talk, Cena said there is no "passing the torch" in the business. You have to take it and tonight Roman took it.

As for the retirement thing, I know's he got a couple of movies coming up that he's filming back-to-back, so I'm assuming tonight was his retirement from being a full-time performer. We'll probably only see him now come the big shows or when they need someone to elevate a younger talent.

I can't believe Brock Lesnar retained against Stroman. That finish was underwhelming. Ugh. I seriously want the Title off Lesnar now. I miss seeing the Title being defended regularly! Also felt the match was boring as there was no gimmick involved which kinda exposed Stroman in a way too. Not good.

Speaking of not good, are we supposed to be happy Enzo is the new Cruiserweight Champ? I'm conflicted with that decision myself. The Cena/Reigns was boring in the beginning. But picked up later. I didn't hate it although I do hate how Reigns kicked out of the AA so many times. The coronation of Reigns continues. And poor Bayley, she was inserted into the Title match so she could eat the pin? I thought that was Emma's job. Match of the night goes to the Tag Team Title match of course. Hope they find Cesaro's missing teeth.

You had 2 legit hot and over guys with Joe and Braun that could of "slayed the beast". But Brock wont drop the belt on til Mania vs Roman. Cause Vince needs to give Roman his 3rd torch passing moment in 12 months. Cause that will work. Seriously when smarks are mad that you "buried John Cena" you failed Vince.

That powerbomb spot to Nia was nasty. Hope she is OK since then....but man if not in that match with that kinda display, wtf will she get the belt? When she first showed up I was not a fan but she has more than won me over in the past several months with her ring work and her look. Hoping for the women's belt sooner than later.

Roman winning after being hit with 4 AA's does nothing but make Cena look weak, same for Strowman who hit Lesnar with 3 Powerslams and yet their opponents only land 1 or 2 of their finishers and win.

Most of the matches last night were good or decent, but the finishes were just aggravating.

Far and away, the most amusing thing to come out of last night is how the entire Cruiserweight roster was complaining about Enzo being the champ, except for Akita Tozawa who says he likes him.

I found it funny that they completely ignored Tozawa's reign, when saying that Neville had held it since the Rumble.

Just been reading that Cesaro didn't so much break his front teeth in that spot during the Tag Title match, more that the teeth got jacked 3mm into his upper jaw which had to have hurt like hell

Miz and Maryse aren't the only WWE couple expecting. (And no, it's not John and Nikki.)

Matt Hardy on his Twitter confirmed that he and Jeff will be a part of the WWE 2K18 roster in one of the DLC packs. Nothing else about the DLC packs has been revealed.
