Guys in their late 40s lasting longer and going over younger talent - check
Heatless crowd - check
Non-sensical finish - check
Just a horribly booked match that made zero sense. Why have Shane, Angle and HHH last so long? The fact that they're still relying on these guys in 2017 is pretty sad.
Why not just finish the show with Styles/Lesnar? The fact that they got the crowd to care despite it being painfully obvious RAW would win (3-2 SD lead at that point) proved how great both guys are. The main event the crowd completely died. And why not mention the fact that it's a series of seven matches before Sunday? I'm betting Vince woke up and decided to keep track or something, so weird.

I'm willing to accept the main event (though I didn't particularly like it) if it leads to Triple H eventually doing a legit job for Strowman or some other newer talent.
But the original post left out the most "WCW" thing about the main event: If you constantly refer to Smackdown as "The B Show" and then treat it like The B Show then guess what? Smackdown is now The B Show. It's like the nWo telling us that WCW sucks and then WCW never doing anything to not suck.

In fairness Nakamura wasn't just an entrance in NXT. He was booked really well there I thought. Anyway this is an issue they've had for a long time now, failing to make new stars. It's more annoying because the company is actually fantastic at making stars when they're focused on that.
