I like seeing Big E with the title. Partly because I think he can breathe some excitement into it, and partly because…he’s not Axel.

While I get the idea of a recently deposed titleholder having the first re-match….this one was never in doubt, and didn’t really need to be on the PPV. The title change could have been, but the rematch wasn’t anything remarkable. Some back and forth, but really and truly, Langston’s hand being raised in victory was never in doubt.

Decent first PPV match as reigning and defending IC champion, so I will give him that in his favor. Hoping Big E can build off of this, get some momentum going and really elevate the title . It would be nice to see.
