    Made it sorta worthwhile i guess, Just can't shake the feeling that it was a short term mentality move from the WWE. Unless ratings stay high for the new few weeks/months was it really work taking away a huge moment from the paying fans and actually lose the naturally huge reaction you can play time and time again? time will tell i guess.

    Their argument, right or wrong, is probably that it's a huge moment either way but this way it's a huge moment that also pops a rating.

    Of course, the kind of excitement of it being a surprise would have been next level, so I don't really agree with the thought process as a whole, but yeah.

    Yeah I'm in the camp of thinking it doesn't really matter. When I got the notification in my phone I was stunned, and I also marked out watching his promo, so... Can't really criticize it

    I vote for surprise announcement. As emotional and big as it was anyway, I think we've still not had the comedown from it yet and once we're used to having him back, more will feel that this would have been a much more memorable, classic moment if it had the shock of a surprise reveal right before our eyes.

    Like imagine if before Punk's Pipebomb he went on Twitter and said "I'm done. But I've got something I wanna get off my chest first about this company."

    Fair. This might just be me though... But I wasn't gonna watch this Smackdown until I heard he was cleared. Maybe that's why I'm biased towards the early announcement. Because I would have been livid if I missed the announcement and the brawl that happened later.

    I mean, that wasn't a small reaction you got from the live crowd that knew going in that this was happening. Granted, it would've been even bigger had they kept it hush-hush but this way you get a giant reaction AND pop a live rating for the show - that's a win-win.

    Yeah I can’t blame them for the decision to break it before SD.

    Sure it might have been a great surprise but I probably wouldn’t have watch it Livd and it would have been spoiled for me anyways.
