John LaurinaitisPrimo and Epico def. Primetime Players

What I Liked:

I said that they needed to do something with these guys after last night. The action was quick and gained my interest. I like how PTP retreated to be counted out. They are growing as a team who are cocky, better than ever, and feel they are entitled to something. It is all about action, the emotion in their faces, and how they handle themselves in and out of the ring. AW is a good mouth piece for the guys, and this is just the beginning. I liked how Primo and Epico have begun to turn face a little bit because of PTP, and feel like with Rosa they can become really popular. It is all about a steady pace and progression for both of these teams who need to be able to connect with the WWE Universe.

What I Disliked:

I really wanted R-Truth and Kofi Kingston to come out and do something with these guys. They are the champions. Even if they come out to the announcer's table, there needs to be a spotlight on who the other teams are facing. It has been a few weeks since we have seen them, so this would be the perfect time for all teams to be tangled in together.

Grade: B-

-John Laurinaitis comes out for his farewell speech. He talks to the WWE Universe and says it is their loss. He calls everyone a loser. Big Show comes out and says he does not need to listen to him and he leaves.

John Cena def. David Otunga and John Laurinaitis

What I Liked:

David Otunga gets beaten down by Cena and then leaves Johnny to himself. Laurinaitis got a few moves on Cena, including kicks to his stomach. I liked that Otunga grew a pair and left. This was the swan song for Laurinaitis, who got 3 AA's from John Cena. This match was okay, but nothing spectacular by any means. It gave Cena the right to say goodbye to Laurinaitis.

What I Disliked:

This segment seemed flat, boring, and just a complete waste of a main event. We really needed this to end Raw? I begin to get so frustrated at the booking, and what they view as important and not. Give me wrestling, give me complex storylines. This had neither. Cena needed to be attacked by someone. He needs to find a real feud immediately. But, who is next for Cena?

Grade: C-
