The Main Events
CM Punk defeated Dean Ambrose when all three members had to decide on who would face the former champion. Ambrose gets the opportunity and takes advantage of it. I loved the old school pacing of this match. Ambrose and Punk really focused on the small details in the match, including the facial expressions and the real feel of a fight. Ambrose would take a bump and not completely over sell it. Punk would get knocked down and Ambrose would target that body part for the next few moves. With a few close pin falls, Punk finally reverses an Ambrose move and hit GTS for the win. There was no way Ambrose would win this match. If Punk lost to him, how are we to believe that he can beat THREE men? Logical and simplistic told the story of this very solid bout.
Daniel Bryan Gets Invited
Randy Orton picked up a win in an excellent main event on Smackdown against Daniel Bryan, thanks to the distraction of The Wyatt Family. Harper and Rowan appear outside of the ring. Orton hits an RKO and picks up the win. As he leaves, the lights go out again and Bray Wyatt appears. He tells Daniel Bryan he does not have to fight alone. He invites him into his family and Smackdown ends. This is brilliant. After all the times Daniel Bryan has been left to dry, this is the perfect opportunity for him to recreate himself once again. They can do so many things with this. They can make Wyatt Family with Daniel Bryan faces. They could have them join forces to try and take out The Authority. It would be an easy crossover for guys like Kane, who has history with Bryan and The Wyatt's. Furthermore, they can keep them heel and work with guys like CM Punk and other younger stars. There is so much to be excited for. First thing is first: Daniel Bryan MUST join the Wyatt Family.
