Favorite Moment: Two favourite moments for me here. Firstly I really enjoyed the confrontation between Cody and AA, set the tone for the show with two excellent promos from Bear and Eddie, great jobs guys. Secondly, Wade Barrett making it to the MITB match, UK needs a representative in that and it'll add to their current dominance over the Raw roster, very good booking.
Best Match: Best match for me has got to be Jericho vs Cena, loved the writing style. It wasn't too clumpy, had no massive walls of text and was easy to follow to well done to this particular writer. Also, nice to see John Cena getting the rub, I feel he should have a bigger part to play on Raw so hopefully he's going to be going places here.
Best Promo: I've already mentioned it and I will again, Cody and Austin Aries was really fantastic, great job. Every now and then someone pulls a big promo out of the bag and I felt like we got on here, looking forward to where this feud is going to take us in the near future.
Best Piece of Booking: I like that Raven bounced back from Abyss' loss at Summerslam with a victory over HHH, I want to see him gain momentum over the next few weeks and become a genuine force on Raw. Honourable mentions for the two qualifiers to the MITB match, very good booking on both counts.
Best Debut *when applicable*: I don't believe I saw one, I may be wrong but I don't think so.
Any Piece of Booking You Didn't Like: Kind of a double edged sword here, because although Cena made it to the MITB match, he made it at the expense of Y2J, hopefully there'll be a way back for Jericho as his presence in the match would be fantastic. Nothing else springs to mind, we had a good show all around.
Any Matches and/or Promos That Could've Been Improved: I thought all matches and promos served a purpose, they were good and I don't think anyone was off their game. I would complain about a lack of promo for myself, BUT I thought it was a good decision to leave Sting off the show to sell the damage he endured at SS.
Any Other Positives: Angle and Punk gave a good promo, Jericho was good as usual, the writing for the Black/Barrett match was spot on as well as KOW vs Harlem Heat. Good Barrett/Black promo thought to be honest as I said all promos were very well done.
Anything else that fell below your expectation: Not here, good show!
How would you improve the negative comments (if any): Nothing to see here.
Overall Show Grade: B+
