There's no denying that expectations weren't exactly high for this year's Clash of Champions show, especially given the unexpected card shuffling which had taken place.
And while this was hardly a spectacularly memorable PPV - outside of that all-timer opening Ladder Match, of course - it at least delivered the average, acceptable goods for the most part.
With plenty of solid bouts and just a single dud match among the bunch - albeit hardly an offensively bad one - Clash of Champions did more than enough to satisfy.
However, it's also fair to say that it was ultimately more successful as a night of compelling storytelling and character development than a consistent athletic showcase.
As a result the night certainly did good things for many superstars - especially Roman Reigns - even if the matches themselves weren't always stellar and too often outstayed their welcome.
Above all else, though, it paints a compelling picture moving ahead to next month's Hell in a Cell event...
