OVERALL: What is it with LU not wanting to book Pentagon strong? I mean, I know I just said I had no problem with Sexy Star winning the Title a couple of weeks ago. But I didn’t like the booking of Pentagon here at all. He looked like a chump by the end of the show. And I know the women from Stardom are good wrestlers. But I just couldn’t get behind this story at all. I’ll be curious to see what, if anything, happens with Pentagon for the rest of the season.
