Best Match: The Rock v. Edge
Best Promo: I'll give this honor to...Anderson/Daniels.
Best Piece of Booking: Sable getting in Lita's face after costing her the match with Eve. It allows Sable to get noticed and it reminds everyone that Lita has the potential to shake things up in the Triple Threat match as well. The second best piece of booking is Edge interfering in the main event and taking out both Lesnar AND Kidd. Edge seemed like a third wheel, in comparison to Lesnar and Kidd, but having him come out on strong makes him look like a credible threat.
Best Debut *when applicable*: Weren't any debuts.
Any Piece of Booking You Didn't Like: Edge getting the victory on the Rock via roll-up. I feel like someone like The Rock shouldn't get pinned with a cheap move like that. Perhaps if Edge hit the spear when the Rock turns around and THEN gets the win, that would have been a bit better.
Any Matches and/or Promos That Could've Been Improved: I'm going to be honest, it didn't like Cryme Tyme's promo. Now, don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad or anything but I don't like the fact that they had to turn heel just to get a point across. The thing is, the most prominently featured tag teams, PTP's, KOW and AAP are all heels and with CT turning heel, that makes the heel to face tag team ratio even lower than before.
Any Other Positives: Rey's promos have been improving, Ambrose was was compelling as ever and the Road to Triumph is getting plugged and pushed as a major thing.
Any Other Constructive Criticism:
A couple things:
1. The matches didn't seem drawn out enough until it ended. What I mean is, after the video, there's a point where the rest of the match is hand written but for each match, it seemed pretty short. All of the tension seemed to just deflate with how quickly everything ended.
2. Reks didn't have the chance to retaliate after getting screwed last week. Sure, he had time to cut a promo but maybe him having a match, where he could bow off some steam against an annoying heel or a member of S.C.U.M could have sufficed.
3. What up with Shane? He became impartial out of nowhere and started treating everyone on the roster fairly. That's not a bad thing but a plausible and smooth transition would have been better.
Overall Show Grade: C+. Average show, decent build up, nothing too special about it.
