Thank you wrestling gods!!!!!!!! Our prayers have officially been answered. The Jinder Mahal Era is officially over!
Due to the show being tape delayed from the UK, most fans with an internet connection knew the match result.
Knowing the outcome didn’t hinder (yup, I totally went there) the match, it helped it. I was ecstatic to get home and watch Smackdown tonight. I can’t remember the last time I felt that way.
The spoiler had the exact effect on me that Tony Schiavone spoiling Mankind’s title win on Nitro back in 1999. It’s hard to even call something a “spoiler” when it’s exactly what I wanted.
AJ Styles winning the WWE title feels weight has been lifted off of the WWE. Mainly, because unless you love over the top heels, or are ironic wrestling guy, we can all agree that Jinder’s title reign flat out sucked.
Oh, and the cherry on the sundae, now we get Brock Lesnar vs AJ Styles at Survivor Series. Hashtag upgrade!
