Didn't like this one at all, it needs more recognizable talent.
Rey Mysterio is out to grace us with his presence. Rey says he was given a second chance last week, and did what he does best deliver the impossible|Yeah cause you whine and moan about not getting your way, than publicly critique WWE in a Mexico interview| Rey starts talking Mexican and Jack Swagger interrupts him. Jack brags about his perfection of wrestling, while Rey claims Swagger is stupid. Rey compares Swagger to Sylvester and CM Punk comes out. He says on Monday he was a target of 36 armed assailants and if it happened to anyone else, they wouldn't be able to compete. He happens to be extraordinary while Swagger and Rey are normal. He is the only straight-edge 3 time World Champion in history. Rey says the whole entire WWE universe is tired of him running his mouth. He already beat Punk and shaved his head, why doesn't show some dignity and pull of that silly mask. Big Show is out and says they all know he'll beat all 3 of them up and become World Champion and He has mad respect for Rey. Show doesn't understand Punk's deal and thinks bald is a pretty good look. Kane is out now and he is wondering who is responsible for his Brother's demise. When he finds out who is responsible, they will end up in a casket. Maybe it was all four of them in a deliberate plot and there will be VENGEANCE!. Did the job nicely enough, I enjoyed the work from all 4 combatants.
Rey Mysterio Vs Jack Swagger. Very solid, but Swagger's run has looked weak due to horrible booking on his character, and having a pointless win for Rey proves that. Swagger attacks Rey after the match, but Kane makes the save, but choke slams Rey as well for good measure.
Non-Title Match. Layla|C| Vs Tiffany. Tiff is looking smoking hot. Could have been worse I suppose, but it was a little sloppy to say the least. Layla wins.
1 1/2 /5
Christian Vs Dolph Ziggler. These two are capable of way more, they should be better than this average outing. Christian wins with a sunset flip off the top. Afterwords Vance Archer and Curt Hawkins along with Chavo and Dolph decimate Christian.
Kane tells a casket with a wreath on it that they will never allow his fire to be extinguished. All his life he felt The Undertaker guiding him on the stairway to success and now he's gone. His soul is empty&hollow. It's tortured but so will be the culprits, who are damned with every fiber of his monstrous being. They're damned to vengeance and hell. Good work from Kane.
Drew McIntyre is out and he demands that Teddy come out right now. Drew tells Teddy to watch the titantron. They watch Matt beating up Drew on Smackdown then show the footage from Raw. Drew claims that he's the chosen one and Teddy isn't getting that through his head. Drew says due to Mr. McMahon Matt Hardy is not only suspended from Smackdown, but all of the WWE programming. He told Teddy if he turns a blind-eye into a misfortune one more time there would be a severe price to pay. Kofi Kingston says he is sick of hearing Drew whine and complain|Amen| about not getting his way. Everybody is sick of it, even the popcorn vendor. On behalf of the WWE universe he's telling Drew to shut up. He says they are exact opposites. When Kofi wants something he earns it, when he falls he picks himself up. When he doesn't like somebody, he does something about it. He nails Drew with the McIntyre and knocks Drew to the floor with The Trouble In Paradise. BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!. Very good work, mainly thanks to Kofi.
3 1/2 /5
Big Show Vs CM Punk. Nothing of note here, and way to short to mean anything. Big Show wins by DQ as the hooded stranger interferes. Kane is out to save the day, but looks like he wants to choke slam Big Show as well. And he does, wow!.
Bottom line. The Kane stuff is excellent, along with Kofi's work, the rest is junk.
