Best Match: I would say the main event, but it felt like a bit overkill with so many kickouts. It's like I read somewhere in the WWE section....finishers are finishers because it's meant to be that...the finish of the match. Very few times, should finishers like the Brainbuster be kicked out of, since it makes them look weak and more as a just a regular move in the arsenal of the man (or woman) using the move. This is not good coming from the #1 contender to the gold. Unless they know each well enough to avoid them or know that after taking taking it so many times, your body is strong to handle it and kick out (a good example would be Rhodes building up a strong fortitude to taking Brogue Kicks and kicking out of them as time goes on), be careful with having so many kickouts and dragging the match out beyond the point where it loses the interest of the reader.
I'll give the best match to the UK vs Rhodes and Black, because it had great depth of story from both the Rhodes/Black segment, as well as the UK segment and the way the match went on long enough before it was finished by Rhodes. The post match action was also fun to see since it sets up more interactions between all 5 men and what they'll do in the next few weeks.
Best Promo: Don't wanna go with myself so I'll go with the Eve/Jericho/Long segment. Was well thought out of and made both Eve and Jericho's relationship, as borderline romantic as it may be, affect their status both as the WWE Champion, for not being focused enough to take Aries as a challenger, which as a heel and being Jericho he won't do anyways and Eve as Long said, being made to look very unprofessional and how that will influence the Board of Directors to keeping Long or naming her as the GM.
Though I'm getting a sense, we may just get a new one altogether with no relation to this story to this story to keep an unbiased control on Raw, opening up Eve as a wrestler again and maybe have Long act as a manager, maybe for a tag team since he loves him some tag matches haha while Jericho stays well as Jericho.
Best Piece of Booking: The working of many characters to give them depth. Like the alliance between Rhodes and Black, very unexpected. The segment with Sandow and Hogan was interesting to read as well. The tag team promo, where all teams got some great light, etc.
Best Debut: I guess the guy that attacked Punk counts? If so then him.
Best Line(s) of Commentary: None really stood out to me as the best.
Any Piece of Booking You Didn't Like: The coloring really made some promos unreadable. Dont choose difficult colors in fear on repeating colors throughout promo, if 4 promos have to be green to make them readable, let them be green. Don't go with yellows (unless its a dark yellow) or pale colors such as the peach-ish color used in the Tag Team Promo, I'm speaking of Hero in this instance. Choose the best colors to make promos easier to read and if you have to repeat throughout the show, do it.
Any Matches and/or Promos That Could've Been Improved: The main event as stated above.
Any Other Positives: The show was good. Had plenty of promos and about 6 matches which is a good average for Raw, though one of them being a squash of Kane facing a jobber and that massive main event. Felt like 5 would've been a better choice of matches to be held.
Any Other Constructive Criticism: Umm....I think I covered it all.
Overall Show Grade: B-
