Above average is probably the best compliment I can give it.
Kofi Kingston Vs Cody Rhodes. Really disappointing stuff, considering the talent involved. Both were not really given enough time to do anything of note, and they seemed to be going through the motions. Match ends when Kane comes down and choke slams both, causing a no-contest. Kane announcers there will be a bludgeoning tonight for Jack Swagger.
A doctor applies a brace to Rey's ankle. Rey says Swagger basically showed his true colors, and he's in a lot of pain. Karma is rough, according to Rey.
Jack Swagger is shown watching Rey's interview in the back. Turns out Swagger's Father is stuck in traffic.
Drew McIntyre Vs Christian. Not quite as good as the excellent match they'd have together two-weeks later, but pretty good nonetheless. Drew picks up the victory with The Future Shock-DDT.
Alberto Del Rio has another boring segment. Make it more interesting guys, I'm just not feeling it.
The Straight Edge Society is out. Punk declares that they are stronger than ever|Funny that's not what they showed a couple of weeks later|. The Big Show is out to a nice ovation. Punk claims the people were listening to him. Show says he was putting them to sleep, and calls them "Snoozing Every Sunday". Show talks some more trash, while Punk fires back and says he can't wait to see his 450 pound lazy self dive off a ladder. Punk tells Big Show to entertain them, while they watch at ringside. Turns out Big Show has needed to reinforce the ladder, due to his size. Big Show breaks one of the ladders. He jokes and says he breaks everything. Big Show climbs the ladder. Punk hilariously says he's reminded of King Kong climbing the Empire State Building. The SES attack Show on the ladder. And infamously, Big Show unmasks Punk's face to the world. Punk cries and whines his eyes out. Effective segment here, it was a lot of fun. Though I do wonder if it was wise to unmask Punk so soon.

Swagger continues his action on getting his Dad here with his innocence proof safely.
Layla&Trent Baretta. Vs Tiffany & Chris Masters. Pointless really, with really random pairings. Didn't go anywhere, and it didn't last long. Kelly gets the pin fall with the K2, when Rosa causes a distraction with the jump rope.
Matt Hardy Vs Dolph Ziggler. Not bad, but with more time and more effort given from the creative team, this could be a good feud down the road. It seemed to be a little flat sometimes, and the crowd was rather Deadish. Ziggler wins.

Jack Swagger meets his Father in the back. Swagger comes out and introduces us to his Father. Jack brags like usual, and says he's here to clear his name with the proof he possesses. He shows pictures of a cookout, them in some chicken wing eating contest, and last but not least, some fishing. Kane is out. Kane says he doesn't believe a word, but Jack insists he has more proof. Kane tombstones Swagger's dad, while Swagger weasels his way out of the ring. Kinda makes Swagger look like a pussy, and all his aggressive attributes he was adding over the past week look rather pointless. Still not a bad segment though.

Bottom line. It passed the time, and there is nothing overly horrible. I enjoyed it for what it's worth, but it is nothing brilliant.
