The Cutting Edge saves this from the bottom of the barrel
Beat the Clock Match.
Daniel Bryan Vs Batista. Solid underdog vs Big man match. It actually did a good job of making me believe Bryan had a chance for a moment. Dave ultimately ends up surviving this, with the Batista Bomb. Afterwords Dave beats him up for good measure
Eve is shown doing a photo shoot, when Wayne Brady shows up. They mingle for a bit, before Jillian interrupts, but Brady dances her out of the room, and wham mo! Maryse whacks Eve with the title. Eh, could've been worse.
1 1/2 /5
Edge is talking about Tables Ladders and Chairs, before Josh interrupts him. Edge buries the PG rating, and talks about how he is Rated R, and it it's time for an era of controversy to reign supreme once again. This has me intrigued.
Ted Dibiase makes his way out. He bashes R-Truth, and says he should relish what he's doing, because he only has one song and it's awful. Morrison is out!.
Ted Dibiase Vs John Morrison. Morrison knocks him outside and then his a springboard 450 Outside. "That was awesome" chants begin. Dibiase leaves the ring, which prompts Morrison to get a Mic. Morrison refuses to believe this is how he will debut on Raw, and wants Dibiase to restart the match right now, but Ted declines. Morrison insists and says he will be his Virgil if he re starts it, which Ted agrees too. For the time it got, this was some decent stuff, with Morrison doing his Bret impression by using his counter of the ropes. Ted attacks after the match, but Truth makes the save
2 1/2 /5
John Cena Vs Chris Jericho. Jericho won't use the same stupid excuse that Miz did, but he's beaten Cena so many times, there is no point, so he makes Wade Barrett do his dirty work.
John Cena Vs Wade Barrett. Pointless stuff here, only to give major time to the NXT rookie. Cena of course wins, to pick the stipulation. Cena goes to announce, but Sheamus hits the pump kick on him
Maryse Vs Nikki Bella. Terrible diva's match as one would expect, but Maryse looked hot!. Maryse shows her photo shoot with Eve, which looks totally hot mind you. Eve even manages to screw up the run down...how pathetic, the division is just sad now.
Zach Ryder is out and brags that he's single, and ready to mingle, and he's going to beat Primo again. Wayne Brady gets on the Titantron and announces his real opponent which is Mark Henry.
Mark Henry Vs Zach Ryder. Awful as one would expect, they are completely wasting Zach, and Mark wins with The World's Strongest Slam.
Jericho and Miz discuss strategy and insult The Big Show basically. Meh
Wayne Brady runs into Kozlov who is glad he has proper competition. Santino is here and makes references about the Brady Bunch, while Santino reveals that Kozlov and Regal were just recently at each other's throats. Brady cracks that Regal is from House of Slytherin. The crack was funny, but I'm getting tired of these skits.

The Hart Dynasty Vs Vladmir Kozlov&William Regal. Jericho and Miz are on commentary. Solid is the best compliment I can give this, these four know how to work. Miz and Jericho beat down the champs afterwords.
Edge makes his way down to the ring for The Cutting Edge. He says the fans don't deserve an explanation, but claims he's just joking and he loves to tug on people's heart-strings. Edge says he planned to be white knight of Smack Down, but he was drafted to Raw and all the hard work is gone. He says spearing Orton was cathartic and he was the most talked about superstar on any brand. Wayne Brady is out to an anemic pop, mostly a mixed reaction to be honest. Wayne runs down the previous guest hosts, and claims he's Bob Darker|HA!| and The Viper is out to a huge pop. Big RKO chants, and Orton RKO'S Brady! to a thunderous pop. Orton stalks Edge, and Edge stands cowardly in the corner. Edge says he knows Orton wants to RKO him, but he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that Orton would have done the exact same thing. Edge claims he wants to start Rated RKO again, and this time it will be bigger. Edge gets angry and says to Orton that his idea must not appeal to him. He says he didn't plan on spearing Orton, but he's glad he did, because Edge did everything right. He came back from an injury, he filmed commercials and coined a catch phrase for all the people to chant along with, but they still didn't accept him. He says Orton cares about nobody but himself, but they get behind him and chant "RKO, RKO" "Huge RKO Chant" Edge says he just doesn't get it, and promises the Spear was just the tip of the iceberg and he will do it week after week until Orton is just an after thought. Edge yells at Orton to say something, and he does by going for an RKO, but Edge blocks and hits a big boot. Edge sets up for the spear, but Randy his a sick looking RKO in mid-air. HUGE Randy chants start as Randy does his psychotic stare down as the show goes off the air. This was what made the show, one of the best segments I've seen in a long time, Edge was on a whole another level, and Orton don't have to say a word and get a huge pop.
Bottom line. Pretty bland stuff here, except for the end.
