    Probably bc Brock’s an MMA fighter lol

  • Dude

    WWE must have went into the WCW archives and pulled out the video with Flair vs. Luger (88 Great American Bash) stopped due to excessive bleeding by Luger.
    What next Vince/HHH- Eric Rowan as the Shock Lord?

  • Arnold Jackson

    Since when are clean finishes a bad thing? Let the storyline play out. This is hardly the end.

  • Arnold Jackson

    See the Matt Hardy vs Edge match, when Matt first came back from being fired.

    Had a few this night…
    Ambros beating Ziggler clean was a little boring and really stale… Could of made something of the match… Have Wyatt come down? Have Ziggler or Ambros turn heel and cheat to win or get DQ’d… This lead no where and the rivalry that was getting really good dies.
    Charlotte beating Sasha clean also was a terrible finish too… Is Sasha about to be given a 30day sus.? Why have this loss after just getting the title?? Makes no sense and really just makes the boss look weak.
    Roman and Rusev was a terrible match as well.

    I was getting excited after the awesome AJ Cena finish and was let down almost constantly after that match.

  • JAckh45

    This.
    Orton shouldn’t be given then win when hes laying in a puddle of his own blood and can no longer compete. simple.

  • Solid

    Same old rubbish of Vince trying to be more edgy like MMA (for the blood stoppage and TKO finish) then when people fail drug tests falling back onto the old “well we’re only entertainment” but at the same time suspending their own people for ‘violations’ of their ‘wellness policy’

  • Solid

    I was expecting Lesnar to lose because of his failed drug test, but I guess the only test that counts is the one WWE does. (which I’m sure Lesnar is exempt otherwise he would have tested positive there just like the UFC tests)

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    All that hype for a majorly disappointing match… Im tired of people stopping or interfering in matches because of blood

  • ROB-1.

    That’s what I would like to know. It should have been a DQ as Lesnar would not stop the beating.

  • ROB-1.

    You are so right. All the refs were stupid tonight.

  • ROB-1.

    That Lesnar Orton match was dumb. Lesnar won on a TKO? Since when did wrestling become boxing?

  • Hunter_13

    DQ doesnt apply either…and there is no way randy could be considered the winner when brock literally destroyed him without using any objects or illegal maneuvers, it was just a KO (and thats a term that WWE has been using since the attitude Era) i dont know why the WWE decided to call it a TKO instead of simply KO…

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    Since when did the WWE start using the “TKO” moniker?

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    10 stitches for a supposedly pg rated atmosphere. But a TKO? THIS ISN’T BOXING! It should be labeled as a D.Q. with Randy as the Winner. But no, Lesnar needs to get paid and WWE needs it’s ratings. The entire match was a sham. I AM NOT SATISFIED. Quit changing the RULES!!

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Such a weak finish IMO.
