I got the feeling throughout, especially from Cole, that it was being presented as a show for someone who doesn't watch wrestling. The way Cole introduced The Miz, the promos before Punk vs. Sheamus, the explaination of the Hart Dungeon among others were all doing exactly what they should be doing on Raw. I'll definitely be watching next week.
