1 Thing I Liked: The Shield’s ring work. No matter the level of competition, you know what to expect from The Shield. Granted they can’t make the fans buy into the match when they’re facing this level of competition. It’s still great to see that even in the ring with these three, they’ll still put on the best match possible. Most superstars would phone in these kind of matches and not put as much effort into them. The Shield works the same as if it was a PPV, Raw, Smackdown and even Main Event. They’re young, they can do it…for now!
1 Thing I Hated: Great Khali. Why is he on Main Event? Why did he win this match? Why is he on TV? Why is he still a WWE superstar? Many of these questions cannot be answered because there is no answer. This guy needs let go! They are so many better superstars that earned that spot and are getting overlooked. The less I see of The Great Khali the better. I just don’t understand or get the appeal of this guy. You keep him in the WWE for the public relations in India but keep him off TV, please.
Match of the Night: The Shield vs. The Usos and Kofi Kingston
Overall Grade: B +
