Joey Fantana’s review published on Letterboxd:
Used to be a massive WWF fan back in the day. Nowadays this is the only event I'll still come back to - love the format.
But it's clear the model has gone stale and there a few things needed to up the ante once more and make this feel more like an actual competition;
- Lose that 'both feet must touch the ground' rule. Been a get out of jail free card for too many for too long
- If someone slips out of the ring by any other means than over the top, ten second rule should apply. Hiding under the ring went out in the '90s
- Even by it's own silly standards, the fact eliminated contestants and non-competitors can eliminate live contestants is nonsense
- The last four 'narrative' in dire need fo something different
At this point it's unclear what the referees are actually there to police beyond the two-foot rule. Dated beyond belief.
I don't keep up with the roster anymore but, outside of the classics, Rollins and Strauman are standouts among a seas of forgettable faces.
