Favorite Moment:This is a difficult choice, there were some pretty sweet moments throughout the show but there weren't any real blockbuster events that are like "Holy Shit!". Even Abyss getting nailed (teehee) by Janice didn't have me bouncing around, I think that's because of the outcome of his match with Sting I expected Raven to cast him out. I think i'm going to elect for Vinnie Mac being on the show because I don't like Teddy Long or Eve as authority figures.
Best Match: Best match for me is another tough choice, this time it's because there were a few awesome matches all of which were top quality. Sting vs Abyss was insane, I liked the style of writing with action happening before and after the video. But I'm gonna go for Chris Jericho vs Jeff Hardy, solely based on quality of writing and how neat and well ordered the match seemed.
Best Promo: Some good promos on the show and some not quite as good promos, though I didn't feel any of them were of poor quality it was easy to distinguish between the ones that were well thought out and the ones that were cobbled together in a rush. Cody Rhodes and Austin Aries get this for me, they're making me care about the WWE title and you get the feeling that both men want it bad.
Best Piece of Booking: Will he? Won't he? Chris Jericho's participation in the MITB match is still in question (or when I put my smark hat on, no it's not) and that's pretty cool. I like suspense, not as much as I like bait and switch but being taken by surprise on a wrestling show is always good especially when i'm genuinely not sure whether Chris will make it to MITB.
Best Debut *when applicable*: I didn't catch one, I might be wrong but i'm not reading that again with tired eyes to find out! Instead i'll tell a joke.My Dad used to say 'always fight fire with fire', which is probably why he got thrown out of the fire brigade. There we go.
Any Piece of Booking You Didn't Like: As much as i've been enjoying the Tyler Black vs the UK saga, i'm not buying into Sheamus vs Black for some reason. Not sure why, but there's something about this potential splinter feud that just doesn't appeal to me, cannot place my finger on it. The rest of the show was on the money though.
Any Matches and/or Promos That Could've Been Improved: Match-wise I don't think any match could have been improved, they were all good. As for promos, Kurt Angle isn't sloppy or douchey enough for me, also he needs to be more drunk, and telling CM Punk that God blesses him. Ohhh yeah.
Any Other Positives: Actually Kurt Angles promo was quite rambling at times which matches in on my opinion of Kurt at the moment, I dunno if that was intentional or accidental, probably accidental but whatever it makes for a promo I can laugh at. Other promos that ticked my boxes were Damien Sandow, Jericho, Hardy, Barrett and Ryback surprisingly. Also the ending to Maria vs Kaitlyn left us on a cliff hanger! Who was it? Whodunnit!? Tune in next week to find out?
Anything else that fell below your expectation: Aaaaactually the show was promo heavy, the promos were good buuuut there were just too many of them and not enough matches.
How would you improve the negative comments (if any): Gimme some more matches dawg! Also give Kurt Angle more booze.
Overall Show Grade: B. Solid show, good not great.
