    It seems they're going all out (at least in its debut) with the Punk vs Sheamus and the tag team tourney match ups. This will be the first time I've ever watched anything on ION.

    Sounds like they're really overextending themselves. It takes enough effort keeping up with 2 weekly shows.

    I love how these tools act like Punk is not deserving of respect for using things like a missing turnbuckle to his advantage and then act like Sheamus is such a worthy champ when he took a victory while ADR's foot was clearly on the rope less than 2 months back.

    Match was ok, but wasn't close to the DB Punk matches back when when both of them were champs.

    Pretty good match from Sheamus and Punk. That video package of CM Punk was well done too.

    I'm loving this format a lot.

    10 minutes to hype up the wrestlers/match.

    20-25 minutes for the match itself.

    5-8 minutes for the post-match interviews/next week hype.

    If time remains, like tonight, have an additional match.


    Brilliant concept that is working really well in the debut. Loving Cole and Miz on commentary here too.

    Great debut.

    It just dawned on me, this really feels like an MMA show.

    Hype up the big match, have the big match, reaction from it, then oh look, we have extra time available so let's show this other match that happened.

    Beautiful.

    Fun tag team match - I was real impressed with Gabrial and Kidd. Would love to see more of them.

    Solid debut overall for the show. I liked the video packages for Punk and Sheamus before their match and the fact that they gave them a solid 20 minute+ match. Tag match was short, but fun. Gonna be hard to keep this up (especially with Big Show in next weeks main event).

    Currently watching this right now. Loving the hype for Punk so far. Heading from Heyman and Mercury is a nice touch.

    I like the Main Event better than Smackdown right now.

    Tyson Kidd should teach Punk how to do an elbow drop.

    Good show, 2 pretty good matches. Too bad the wrong team advanced in the tag tournament.

    Was not able to watch tonight due to the Yankee game, and I will likely be skipping both Raw and Main Event next week for the same reason. But I do plan on giving this a chance once the playoffs are over, so I'm glad to hear that it seemed to be an entertaining watch.

    You won't regret the watch. If you can find it on Youtube or Hulu, give it a shot. Fantastic format for a wrestling show.

    I feel like you are a little bit biased.

    Punk and Sheamus had a great match. I hope this becomes a show that can feature guys like Punk and Bryan in long matches fairly regularly.

    I think Main Event should feature guys like Sandow, Cesaro, Ryback, and the tag team division and treat the matches like main events.
