Botch Take: In my opinion, it was much too soon to undertake a “205 Live” tour. They’re just beginning to turn things around on the show itself. This is far too rushed to work. Sadly, the cancelled date won’t look good to Vince and this will become a real problem going forward if more cities cancel.
Also, why are they using “Woken” Matt Hardy vs. Bray Wyatt on these shows? I know they need a special attraction match at this point (they wouldn’t if they’d have waited a bit before they did this) but this match should only be happening on the main roster because the story is still being told. Senseless…
