Personally presenting Edge of Honor at long last. It's something that I've waited months to do and now that's it here I'm super excited for how plans for The Edge of Honor vs The United Kingdom fall into place. Not to mention the UK promo that followed from the presentation of The Edge of Honor was really well done. It vibed off that segment and made th show flow with great ease.
Main event. Gave a great focus to the US Championship and the match itself was well done. Still....FACK! Damn you UK! So close....!!!
Hahaha I'm glad that Vand can continue his reign a bit more though
Best Promo: *Bows down before the might of Eddie*
Of course Wyatt takes this one. It had great length, great feel to it and honestly it creeped me the hell out at one which Wyatt himself has done in the real WWE. Eddie nailed it with Wyatt and gave off a fantastic vibe that me think Bray actually cut a promo like this in the real WWE.
Best Piece of Booking:
Ummm.....aside from making Jericho vs Rhodes official for the PPV, I'm gonna go with engaging a feud between Sting and Ryback. Both were in need for a bigger and better challenge and this could possibly be a great gateway to later on determine who would be a #1 contender for the WWE Championship once a champion is crowned.
Best Debut *when applicable*:
This would go to Riley.
Any Piece of Booking You Didn't Like:
Ummm...let's see to me in some way seeing The Flock starting to die out like it's been doing since Raven left (I know ehc is too busy to continue with many if any characters but I was really hoping he'd continue with Raven) given that Sting effectively ended that feud with his match against Mankind and they were a total no show on this show, since he (Raven) was a crucial element to the character development of not only Maria (especially with the Little Dove bits) but also Mick Foley as Mankind (which I was really enjoying seeing them work together) it now leaves the question where do these characters go far from here unless Raven returns?
Will Maria break out although a bit broken hearted and focus on making herself a stronger Diva as the reigning Ms. Money in the Bank? Will Mankind disappear and Mick Foley return as himself or any of his other alter egos (if so Cactus Jack, PLEASE!!!!) or will both look to stay together for some more time in the hopes of Raven returning? It's not something I personally liked to see (them not being on the show) but can understand that without Raven, The Flock really has no place on Raw and will look forward to seeing where Maria and Mankind go with or without Raven.
Any Matches and/or Promos That Could've Been Improved:
Any Other Positives:
Plenty. Rhodes/Jericho vs UK, Hasaan showing his frustrations about how often he's lost (though I would recommend doing something more than talk about it especially with the added loss of this show, if I remember correctly back in the day Hasaan was made out to be somewhat wealthy, if so using that here can benefit Hasaan in acquiring an enforcer, Khali maybe. Just sayin'
), Angle returning and the opening segment.
Anything else that fell below your expectation:
How would you improve the negative comments (if any):
