Memorable Moments and Quotes
"You're doing your little thing. You look like a flying nun."—The Rock to The Miz.

"He say he did it for the people, but he did it for the paycheck."—Woods in his best Rikishi voice.
The Rock refers to The New Day's unicorn horns as "llama penises."
This was ultra fun at its high points but ultimately an empty-calories segment.
The Rock's charisma and banter game made this seem not nearly as long as it ran. The all-time great reminded us of the massive gap in charisma between him and everyone currently on the roster.
The New Day held its own in the verbal clash, but it disappointingly ended in the champs just getting run over. WWE could have presented them as goofs while still having them create a sense of danger. The trio has long stopped being heels, opting instead for being just the most fun guys in the company.
The Rock's shot at Lana, referring to sleeping with her, was in poor taste and useless on top of that; he would have been plenty entertaining without it. That moment only served to further drive Lana's character into the ground.
Remember when she was a vicious, powerful, charismatic woman? That memory is fading. More and more, WWE is just making her the resident slut instead.
