Worth the watch?

In a sense, maybe. WWE creative seems to be finally listening to fans. Although, not by much. We still have the non sense of certain segments. The matches no one cares about. However, nestled in all that… there was some good content for the build up for Extreme Rules. Hopefully, this will be the year WWE Creative finally understands a great slow build. Even it is only for six weeks.
