I can't really say I had one on this show.
The main event. Seeing Punk vs Barrett come head to head was great to see but the big payoff was seeing that the masked man yet continued his attacks on Punk, so the mystery once believed to be solved continues. Color me intrigued as to where this will go.
That would go to Rhodes. He's one of the top faces in the WWE and promos like that symbolize why. Emotion comes off when reading Rhodes promos and it just has me standing at the edge of my seat ready to hear every word he says because he's that damn good.
Best Piece of Booking:
Having The United Kingdom (Regal and McIntyre) avenge their loss at the Great American Bash. It made for The UK to continue to build themselves as a group to fear.
Best Debut *when applicable*:
The Sandman, I suppose.
Any Piece of Booking You Didn't Like:
The needless Goldberg squashes. They don't add anything to the show.
Any Matches and/or Promos That Could've Been Improved:
I think I would like more one on one and other matches outside of a lot of tag matches. Seeing tag teams face one another outside of the standard tag team norm, ex. Dolph Ziggler was in action this week and instead of having The Kings of Wrestling face D-X, either Michaels or HHH could've faced Ziggler with Swagger facing the other partner on the next Raw. Maybe a Fatal 4 way every now and then too and so on, just give something different to see every once in a while.
Any Other Positives:
Seeing the Divas in the Womens Championship match face off in the show, with Lita getting the momentum in the end as she stood tall over Kelly Kelly and Stratus.
Anything else that fell below your expectation:
The announcement of the tag team battle royal. Feels like a re-hash of the battle royal had just a few months back. I would've preferred some sort of tournament (post SummerSlam) or some new way to determine new #1 contenders for the tag titles or even to defend the titles outside of a standard one on one (so to speak) tag team match.
This is a fantasy fed, you need to think outside the box at times like I did in Eddie's saga when I suggested the Tag Team Chaos Elimination Chamber Match, believing that the Elimination Chamber Match needed to explore options outside of only defending the World Championships or determining #1 contenders to the gold.
How would you improve the negative comments (if any):
I already did that
