Looks an ok show, but why in the heck do promotions insist on having a "pre-show"(or dark) match? It's shapes up as one of the best on the card, and it won't be seen by the wider audience!

Perhaps that works for WWE or TNA, but I've seen local promotions, indies, who have a 'dark match' before the actual card. It makes no sense at all to me, because they aren't recording the show anyway!

Personally I hate the pre-show as I'm unlikely to watch it whether I've bought the PPV or not. Therefore it seems like a waste of time to me, I find it unlikely that it encourages very many PPV buys either since it will be no doubt watched mostly by kids/young adults who use social media most and will not be able to purchase the PPV themselves anyway.

So is it just a freebie for non paying fans who you could argue get so much free content on Raw, Smackdown, Main event, and so on already that do they really need something else? Or is it just more pandering that all companies do to kiss the backsides of all forms of social media? Either way they should pull the plug on it.

Anyway, onto the card... it looks excellent, looking forward to this PPV so much more than Wrestlemania. Obviously the Daniel Bryan and CM Punk matches look awesome but the rest of the card is strong too with (for once) good feuds in the non title matches! Well done WWE! Please continue this way...

Great PPV, so glad I bought it.

I marked out when Triple H pedigreed Danielson, they needed Orton as a bad guy again. This is going to make Danielson a huge star.

I agree, the Brock/Punk match was brilliant.
