Title This: WWE Raw Reaction 5-28

What I Liked:

A great matchup between the four guys once again. Kofi and Truth are growing on me because they are similar but have enough differences in the ring to be creative. Truth looked really good in the ring tonight with a simple leg drop. He also was able to gain the quick offensive work on Swagger, a guy who really is good at selling moves. When Ziggler cae into the ring, he was able to ground his opponents and focus on his submission tactics. He is great in every way in the ring, especially being able to counter offensive attacks and place himself in the perfect position to succeed. The ending was really good as well, letting Swagger get hit by Truth and take the loss. The bigger picture is Ziggler after this match. It looks like he is FINALLY going to separate himself from Swagger. This is the absolute best decision and is well overdue. He has too much raw talent and overall personality to be thrown in a tag team that continues to lose. I cannot wait to see how they progress his single's career.

Grade: A

-Big Show threatens Santino, until Brodus Clay walks in. Show and Clay is announced for tonight.

In Ring Segment

John Laurinaitis comes to the ring with David Otunga and Eve. He talks about his victory against John Cena, and shows a poster of him on the WWE '13 video game cover. CM Punk interrupts and comes to the ring. He mocks Laurinaitis and then unveils the real cover, with himself on it. The crowd cheers and Punk tells him to leave the ring because he has to face Daniel Bryan.

-I really liked how they debuted the game cover, even though it is 5 months away from release. I know why they did it, and it did not waste too much time. I also laughed when Laurinaitis was able to try and convinvce the crowd and their kids that they will love the game for the cover he is on. It was quick and comical.
