JMT's post is exactly where I am now. The triple threat is definitely more athletic of the matches, while Bayley/Banks told the better story. Both are great, for totally different purposes. I think, for me, it comes down to this.

Bayley and Banks didn't have the athleticism of the triple threat. And given the members of the threat, how could it? But it did have just enough athleticism to put it over the edge. The triple threat was such a feast to the eyes, but I found the storytelling to be weaker than the athleticism used in Bayley/Banks. We eventually got to the kick out of finishers point most main events get to now, because we don't protect finishers, and don't understand if you treat a spot well enough, a sock to the fucking neck can end a match.

I'd also be lying if I didn't say the buildup to the triple threat didn't affect it for me. Part of the reason the Takeover match worked was because of the story they told, and the buildup to the match. It was perfect not just because of the match story, but everything surrounding the competitors. The triple threat didn't have that same feel. It felt like WWE wanted to go with Lesnar/Cena again, and decided at the last minute it wouldn't have enough steam to main event on its own. That combined with the triple threat happening because of the wretched "Authority come back and castrate the faces" card WWE pulled wasn't exactly getting me all too hyped. Not that any of that is Lesnar, Cena, or Rollins' fault, but it is a factor.

But seriously, don't bitch about a match not being on the ballot, when you yourself could have put it on the ballot.
