An entertaining show for the most part, if i'm allowed to be honest.
Edge comes out to a chorus of jeers. Edge says he tried to do the right thing, but he had to start listening to his gut. He can only listen to one person, and that's him. He says when he won the Rumble, he listened to the fans. And they let him down. He says he doesn't respect John Cena. He has no faith in Khali, doesn't trust Chris Jericho. And barely knows Truth and Morrison. He does agree that Nexus needs to be taken down, so he has a proposal. He challenges Wade Barrett to a one-on one match, and doesn't want anyone sticking their nose in it. Truth is against the idea, but Edge insists on doing things his way. Truth tells him there is more on the line, than just himself. The WWE Univere, friends, family, and he needs to pull his head out of his rear end. Edge says he's clever, but to take the head of the snake, you have to chop its head off. He asks Truth to get out, or he'll spear him out. It's announced Edge will face Barret. Good, solid segment here. I liked Edge's take charge attitude, and his interaction with Truth was interesting.
Edge Vs Wade Barrett. This was a pretty solid match. I'm very impressed by Barrett lately. Edge made him look tremendous, while Barrett held his own just fine. Didn't care for the abrupt finish though, with Nexus surrounding Edge, but it served it's purpose.
Edge asks for John Cena. Edge asks Cena where he was. Cena says if no one wants to listen, he'll listen to them. Cena says the only chance they have is 7 on 7. Edge says he quits. Jericho says if anyone on the team needs to quit, it's Cena. He says if Cena lives and breathes for the company, he'll quit. Jericho asks Cena to face him one on one, and the loser leaves the team. Cena agrees.Again, solid stuff here, it got it's point across very well.
More pointless stuff involving Khali's storyline.
Eve, Gail Kim and Natayla. Vs Jillian, Tamina and Alicia Fox. Natayla wrestling?! has WWE lost it's cool and finally done the smart thing?. For the 1st time in literally months, this was an above average divas match. Effort was given, spots were inventive, and it had time. All ladies looked great, especially Natayla, loved that Suplex!. Fox gets the victory with a sloppy looking Axe-kick.
2 1/2 /5
Fox brags after the match saying nobody can beat her. Enter....MELINA!!!. God it's good to see her back. Alicia tries to bail, but Jillian tosses her back in the ring. Melina beats her up and his the Primal Scream. Melina yells she's back and poses to the crowd. Melina looked gorgeous, and the fans popped pretty big for her return, despite what some may tell you.
Sheamus Vs Goldust. We are reminded of their rivalry on ECW last year. Match wise it's really insignificant, but it did the job of making Sheamus look like a monster. Sheamus inevitably wins.
Sheamus tells everyone what a difference a year makes. He says he was in a war with Goldust last year. Now there's sheer and utter dominance. Whether you like it or not, he's a two-time WWE Champion, standing on top of the world. He says he ended Triple H's career, a man Orton couldn't beat. He says he'll do the same thing to Orton. Sheamus is improving, Mic wise.
2 1/2 /5
Chris Jericho Vs John Cena. These two are better than this when they wrestle, and they know it. It was rushed, and both looked like they were going through the motions. Ending is one of the most moronic and stupidest things I've seen in sometime. Jericho taps out prematurely. Cena gives Jericho his accolades and tells Chris to join them. Jericho bails and declines.
Edge and Jericho feed each other's egos and say they respect what the other did. Edge says together they could own this place, so maybe they should let bygones, be bygones. They share a hug. They really need to figure out what they wanna do with Edge and Jericho.
2 1/2 /5
Randy Orton tells Josh Matthews, Sheamus needs to do his homework if he thinks he's the only one who's taken out Triple H. Orton gave Triple H a 6 week Vacation, due to a swift kick to the skull. He invites Sheamus to ringside, and after he's done with Miz, he won't be in any condition to cash in MITB. Orton drifted between heel and face here beautifully.
2 1/2 /5
Great Khali Vs Ted Dibiase. Maryse looks hot, only good thing to say about this match.
Will Ferrel and Mark Whalberg hype up The Other Guys. Will even calls Bella's average looking|He's right|
Miz warns Orton he made a mistake. It wasn't just a lapse in judgment, it was a life altering, career ending mistake. Because now he doesn't have a shred of positivity in his future. He says Orton's best case scenario is winning the title, and Miz cashing in. He will win the WWE Championship, because he's The Miz and he's awesome. Miz has Rock like potential.
2 1/2 /5
Miz Vs Randy Orton. Good match between these two. Miz looked great against a polished vet like Orton, and I dug Orton's intensity. Orton hits the RKO for the victory. Doesn't hurt Miz or Orton. Sheamus goes to make a sneak attack, but Orton is ready.
Bottom line. I was entertained for the most part, and that's all I can ask these days.
