- That Miz-Cena segment was so good on the mic. So good. I'm in on this feud. Think I'd rather have it without Maryse and Nikki but I can live with them being involved. If it's really Nikki's last match before retiring, why not share the moment with John.
- I'm a little frustrated with how WWE is using Mickie James. Maybe Mickie isn't there past WrestleMania and then I get it I guess but I thought Mickie signed for a couple years. If that's the case, I don't get just having her lose clean all the time to Becky. I appreciate Mickie putting over the new girls and I do appreciate getting clean wins on TV...just seems like Mickie deserves a little better.
- I love AJ Styles getting the win over Luke Harper. I'm not quite on the Luke Harper bandwagon like everyone else seems to be. I could have lived with him in the title match as part of a Wyatt Family Triple Threat match but I'd still rather have AJ in the title match instead.
- I still don't know where they are going with the WWE Title scene, and I love that.
- Please get Dolph Ziggler out of this feud with Apollo Crews and Kalisto. His heel turn was suppose to be the thing that pushed Dolph to the top. It's done nothing for him so far. Disappointing.
- I'm not 100% sure what the final segment with Orton and Wyatt was, but it was different and I think I really liked it. Normally I'm against digging up grave-sites and arson on live TV but it worked well for Orton in my eyes. It did seem like a random, out of the blue time to turn Orton on Bray but it's better than being too predictable I guess. And it was impactful. Not sure what triggered it but they can explain that to me later.
- Great episode of SmackDown. Really starting to pick up some steam going into WrestleMania.
Season finale tonight for Suits. I binge watched this second half of the season instead of watching it live and just got completely caught up this weekend. Kind of a "blah" season for me. Just not a whole lot that really clicked for me. Still good, don't get me wrong, but not great like it has been in seasons past.
I do feel like the show is setting up for a big twist to end the season. Suits is normally pretty good at leaving us on a significant cliff-hanger going from season to season....and it feels like we are setting up for one here as well. I know Mike's hearing or interview is in the final episode but not much more really seems to be set up yet. Just feels like they are lulling you a bit, just to pull the rug out from underneath you at the very end.
My prediction: Donna leaves the firm.
Her side business with the IT guy seemed to pop up out of nowhere. It had to be set up for a reason. Does she leave the firm to go pursue that venture instead? I would doubt it after she couldn't land the big client and had to settle for Stu. But, I don't know where else they would go so that's my pick for a plot twist.
Really excited to see how this Kevin Durant injury plays out. Not that I'm excited that he got injured, you never want to see somebody get hurt or some other politically correct thing I'm required to say. But I'm excited to see how that makes the rest of the season play out and how the rest of the Warriors step up, specifically Draymond Green.
If we are to believe Adrian Wojnarowski, and you always believe Adrain Wojnarowski when it comes to NBA talk, then Durant could be out for quite awhile from his knee injury last night. Possibly the entire season. This blog hasn't made me an NBA expert yet but that's a fairly significant blow to the Warriors. It would also open up the path to the Finals through the Western Conference a little bit more. Time for the rest of the Warriors to step up and fill that void left by KD. I'm going to pay particularly close attention at how Draymond Green plays the rest of the way out.
Draymond has always been an instigator, a loud-mouth, a trash-talker, a whatever else you want to call him. Last week he took it to a whole 'nother level with his feud with Paul Pierce. I'm sure you saw him go after Pierce on the bench last week during their game with the Clippers, telling him basically "You ain't Kobe". And OK, trash-talk on the floor is common and that's probably not the worst thing that has ever been said on an NBA court. But they were less than a minute into the game, and Pierce wasn't even on the floor. Draymond was looking for that fight.
Fine, whatever. Then just yesterday I read this tweet about Draymond continuing the beef. "People tend to forget that he was struggling to make the playoffs, was on the trade block every year, then all of a sudden Ray Allen and KG showed up. Let's not forget that". Wow. The guy who has played on 'super teams' his entire career throwing shots at another player for getting guys to come play with him. OK.
If Draymond is who Draymond portrays himself to be then losing Durant for the season still shouldn't make the Warriors anything less than title favorites, at least in the Western Conference. I mean I've heard for the past two seasons from people that "Draymond might be the most important player on that Golden State team" or some variations of that. This article just written yesterday said he may well be the second most important player on the team. That's always been the trendy thing to say about the Warriors teams the past couple years, as absurd as it may be. Now let's see if he can live up to that with Durant down.
