1. Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon schedule a match between AJ Styles and Luke Harper to determine the #1 contender against Bray Wyatt at WM.

I don't see why they don't just give Luke the match. AJ's feet clearly hit first in the Battle Royal last week.

2. MizTV: Miz says basically the same thing all of Cena's opponents over the last several years have said. And Cena's retort is always the same. But guys did well, but still. Can't they come up with anything original? The segment sets up Cena/Nikki vs Miz/Maryse at WM. It's rumored to be Nikki's last match, so we'll see how that goes.

3. Becky Lynch vs Mickie James: Underwhelming. They just don't have chemistry with each other. Hopefully it's the end of their feud so they can move on to other stuff.

4. Dean Ambrose calling out Baron Corbin. Corbing rejects his challenge. Corbin's mad because Dean cost him the title at EC. Ambrose throws some bad jokes. Corbin admires that Ambrose likes pain, as he enjoys inflicting it. Ambrose tells him not to start something he can't finish.

5. Apollo Crews vs Dolph Ziggler: Chairs match. I didn't pay any attention to the match at all to be honest.

6. Luke Harper vs AJ Styles: Shane McMahon restarted the match as Harper's foot was on the rope. And then Styles just wins clean? What's the point of that? Now AJ Styles is slotted in against Bray Wyatt. They better story is Luke Harper vs Bray Wyatt. Styles makes no sense here. There was no rhyme or reason for Shane McMahon to be there in the first place.

7. Bray Wyatt/Randy Orton segment: Orton droned on (in Triple H fashion). Then he poured gasoline all over the shed where Sister Abigail was. He then set it on fire as Bray watched on the titantron. Bray went into a frenzy and broke down crying.

Another segment that made no sense to me. Bray can teleport, right? Couldn't he have easily done that to save Sister Abigail? I didn't know anyone other than Bray could even see her. At least, I don't recall Luke Harper or Erick Rowan ever mentioning her talking to them. I assumed it was only Bray.

So now Orton wants his title shot back? I honestly don't think he should. He was dumb enough to give it up, he doesn't deserve to get it back just because. But now this makes Orton vs Wyatt vs Styles at WM. And where does this leave Luke Harper? He's just plum out of luck?
