Title This: WWE Raw Reaction 10-31-2011

Josh Isenberg

The muppets take over Raw, and gets interrupted by Swagger and Vickie. They threaten Kermit and Piggy, but Santino comes out and says he will face Swagger tonight. He also announces that Zack Ryder will face Dolph Ziggler.

Divas Battle Royal: Winner faces Beth Phoenix for Divas Championship:

You get the typical Divas match, with AJ and Kaitlyn quickly eliminated. For note, they are all in Halloween costumes. Natalya, Eve, Kelly Kelly, and Alicia were the final four, with Eve eliminating Natalya.

What I Liked:

They are giving Eve another opportunity, which is the best choice because she is the best and most ring skilled face in WWE currently. They face off, but even up walking away, which will continue the intrigue of this feud. I actually am okay with it, even though the Battle Royal was lackluster.

What I Disliked:

Realizing how many Divas the WWE has with little talent. I feel like they have some talent, but most of these divas are going to be useless for the foreseeable future.

Grade: C-

Sheamus is backstage with Muppets, as Christian threatens one of them.

Air Boom vs. Cody Rhodes and Wade Barrett:

What I Liked:

The match was very solid, with great action from all four men. The end was perfect, and the reversal from Wasteland to a DDT was fantastic. I also enjoyed Kofi being the weak link, as we have always seen Bourne be in that subject. I also enjoyed how Rhodes worked on Kofi, grounding him and continuing to punch him to slow down the more athletic opponent.

What I Disliked:

At first, I did not understand the pairing of Barrett and Rhodes, but now its a bigger picture with adding Christian to one team and Sheamus to the other. Who will be the 4th partner at Survivor Series? or will they go 5-5? We have seen both. My prediction will be adding Dolph and Jack, as well as Mason Ryan and Ryder. I wish Dolph would get a 1-1 match, but we shall see.

Grade: B
