      Show tonight was ok. A few things I liked and disliked about the show.


      Randy Savage Tribute Video - I am glad they did a video tribute. It was very nicely done. Jerry Lawler said it best, no matter what Randy Savage is a Hall of Famer.

      R-Truth's rant on John Cena - I loved his line about people like John Cena and Bret Hart are a created to cater to the people while wrestlers like R-Truth are held back. Funny how most of the fans were cheering R-Truth when he told this to Cena. I feel that if WWE didnt drop the ball on Elijah Burke/D'Angelo Dinero, that this would be his spot today.

      Michael Cole - They finally dropped the whole stupid Michael Cole angle and he is now back to being a regular tolerant announcer. Thanks goodness.

      Alex Riley - They finally made him snap and attack The Miz. The fans went crazy for him and started chanting his name. At least he goes to Smackdown with some momentum.


      The Miz - Back to back WWE books Miz to be a complete joke. Alex Riley totally destroyed him tonight and made him look like a jobber. They have to move Miz over to Smackdown now to feud with Riley.

      Kharma - WWE totally messed up big time with their stupid segment tonight. After weeks of Kharma destroying all the Divas and the fans cheering her on, they make her break down crying in the ring? So much for the whole angle now. They could have made it really good where all the Divas would get destroyed until it just came down to just Kharma and Beth Phoenix to where Kharma would just leave.

      Alberto Del Rio angle - Main heel from Smackdown goes to Raw to feud with Big Show now? They should have kept him on Smackdown.

      Dolph Ziggler - Another main heel from Smackdown who for 2 weeks in a row now just does backstage segments. They should have kept him on Smackdown.
