TOP PERFORMERS OF THE WEEK:
With all the solid performances this week, it’s really hard to give it to a single individual. Major honors this week goes to Sasha Banks, Bayley and Hiroshi Tanahashi, who all put their best performances to date IMHO.

TOP TALK SEGMENT OF THE WEEK:
Seriously, can anything top that segment with Paul Heyman singing his graces to Brock Lesnar?

MUST-SEE MATCH OF THE WEEK:
Sasha Banks vs Bayley from NXT Takeover Brooklyn, hands-down. Probably the best WWE women’s wrestling match ever.

That’s how this week went in the wrestling multiverse. Let’s compare notes via the comment section and see if we agree on things!
