Disclaimer: I did feel that last weeks episode was of higher quality and that will be reflected in my overall grade at the bottom. I just felt that overall there was a much more high profile feel to last weeks, but that's probably due to us coming off a major PPV.
Favorite Moment: Tyler Black ensuring that Sheamus doesn't qualify for the MITB Ladder Match (yet). I like Tylers feud with the various members of UK right now and I hope it doesn't end as the UK stable angle is what I enjoy reading up on the most at the moment.
Best Match: I'll give this one to Jericho and Ryback especially as Ryback was the guy who picked up the win. I like Ryback, I like him more now that he's not feuding with The Shield (they rock) and I hope that he gets a decent push in this fed too.
Best Promo: John Cena, and i'll tell you why. If Cena cut promos like this IRL then I doubt he be hated on anywhere near as much, even if he cut them in his goofy, half serious yelling voice that no one I know seems to enjoy. It speaks volumes for Des that he can make Cena likable whereas the WWE can't.
Best Piece of Booking: Raven picking up another victory, as i'm in a feud with Raven as Sting right now I really want both guys to be getting the rub in various matches and situations to give the feud a little bit of substance. Raven gaining momentum and looking like a threat makes the feud much more meaningful and readable.
Best Debut *when applicable*: Jeff Hardy was the only one I picked up on and it was a well written match too.
Any Piece of Booking You Didn't Like: I can't think of anything to put here, I feel that most of the booking if not all of it was spot on, I didn't look at any matches and think "The wrong guy won". The only thing I might be able to comment on in a negative way is that Austin Aries neither opened, or closed the show. ACTUALLY I just noticed Aries wasn't on the show? Ok that's bad in my opinion.
Any Matches and/or Promos That Could've Been Improved: Nah matches were of good quality, and the promos were done well as they were last week.
Any Other Positives: I enjoyed the fact that the UK are appearing like they may get involved with the tag title scene, as unlike TTC I feel titles validate Stables. Sure you can have a successful stable who never wins a title, but the best are remembered as the ones that took the gold, held onto it and dominated. 3MB will never win a title between them, they won't be remembered in 5 years but we'll still remember Evolution, Nexus, NWO, DX etc.
Anything else that fell below your expectation: Nah.
How would you improve the negative comments (if any): Put your champ on the show!
Overall Show Grade: B - Good, but not great.
