Seven days after Great Balls Of Fire is (more than) enough time for fans to fully digest the outcomes. The WWE PPV was following Money in the Banks, which is usually no easy task. Before we put Great Balls Of Fire to rest, here are closing comments.
If you missed Great Balls of Fire, check our play by play. Big Cass did his job last Sunday, making easy and quick work of Enzo. So far, Big Cass seems to be headed in the right direction when it pertains to a singles push as Enzo enters the world of jobbers. If Big Cass can stay out of trouble backstage, he could be a candidate to win a major title in 2017. Or, he flops and rejoins Enzo before they both get released. Don’t get me wrong; Great Balls of Fire is a ridiculous name for a per view and the logo didn’t help. Even the theme of greasers watching a drive-in movie wasn’t portrayed during the event outside of the opening video package. Still, the show was entertaining and hopefully WWE has the pay per view return. A new logo and a few minor tweaks would help but overall, the show was one of the best RAW has produced. Roman Reigns is supposed to be the guy that runs the show. He retired Undertaker and took ownership of the WWE’s yard. Still, after months of feuding with Braun Strowman, only once has Reigns gotten the better. After trying to kill Strowman, he somehow managed to leave on his own two wobbly feet. I think WWE has found their new monster. When Alexa Bliss was on SmackDown, she injured her arm in an early singles match of her main roster career. Maybe, that was all a work considering how she pulled of a similar move at the pay per view. Apparently, Bliss is double-jointed after showing what appeared to be her arm dislocated. It was a trick and one of most bizarre (in a good way) things I’ve ever seen in a wrestling ring. I have to call the Great Balls of Fire main event a major disappointment. The buildup was great, with Samoa Joe taking out everyone in sight; including Brock Lesnar. It felt like Joe would push Lesnar to his limits and the champion would somehow inch his way to victory. The match was quick and only featured a few spots before Lesnar left with his title, while quickly stopping Joe’s push.
