    Where was Asuka? Why didn’t Becky Lynch have a match? Why didn’t the Bludgeon Brothers have a match? Why didn’t Rusev and the Bar wrestle? Where is Sanity? Is this Impact where they tape weeks of TV at a time and have to save half the roster for the next taping? What the hell is going on with this show?
