Shout out to the newest RAW commentator, Jonathan Coachman. He did awesome and had great chemistry with the others.
...
Cena is going for the super AA and he lands it. Cena wins. That was...odd. Probably because it seemed like Balor was going to win.

...
John Cena seems frustrated. He stands on the apron and tells the crowd "I just want to go to WrestleMania" in a sad tone. He goes for a drop kick but Balor gets him down and hits the running drop kick onto the corner. A coupe-de-grace attempt misses and Cena goes for the STF. Balor gets the ropes but Cena holds on for a couple of seconds longer. What?
...
John Cena isn't himself. He lands the AA on Balor, clean and hard. BALOR KICKS OUT!!

John Cena seems to be letting the crowd get to him. His attempt at the five-knuckle shuffle misses and Balor elbows him down
...
John Cena, still seemingly a little frustrated sends Finn Balor running into the corner. Cena has Finn where he wants them

The crowd seems to be completely distracted by something. Wonder what could distract fans from a dream match of this calibre!

Sasha Banks tries to hit the suicide dive but Asuka kicks her and Sasha NEARLY lands neck first. That was scary. Back in the ring, Asuka pops her up and hits a knee RIGHT to the face. That looked brutal!
...
Sasha is in complete control. She dominates, acts too cocky and then does the dumbest thing by slapping her and shoving her face.
...
Asuka starts with some joint manipulation onto Sasha, slowing things down. Sasha kicked Asuka's head and then hit the double knees. She continues to act more and more heel-ish by the minute.
