SheamusSheamus and AJ def. Dolph Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero

What I Liked:

Once again, Dolph and Sheamus do a great job with the physical altercation inside the ropes. I cannot remember a time where I thought either man bored me or dropped the ball in a match. Ziggler was able to garner some offense, and hit a beautiful DDT in the mid part of the match. Sheamus would control more offensive maneuvers later on, but it came down to AJ and Vickie. I thought it was smart because the story has been dwindling down between Dolph and Vickie. First a slap, and now Vickie loses. Dolph needs to contine to get frustrated and ultimately split from her. This was more about Ziggler/Vickie and AJ over Sheamus.

What I Disliked:

Where is Del Rio? Why can't he get time on the screen with Sheamus? Instead, he gets a wasted segnent with Cara. This frustrates me to no end, especially with two weeks remaining and no reason why Del Rio and Sheamus are feuding. Where is the personal conflict between the two? Why do the fans believe Del Rio will beat Sheamus? There is NONE!

Grade: C+

AJ gets upset that Punk was on the phone and did not see her victory.

Heath Slater def. Doink The Clown

What I Liked:

Heath Slater comes out once again and does his usual spiel. He says he is not a clown, and that cues Doink. After the match, we get DDP. He comes out and hits a Diamond Cutter onto Slater. Nice little touch switching up the usual defeat for Slater.

What I Disliked:

Although I like DDP, he is not a WWE legend. He had a short stint and did nothing while in the WWE. Also, give me more important reasons to care about the legends returning. Is all they are going to do is beat up Slater? Even though I think Slater is entertaining me and he does not complain about his spot in the company, give me more. It is becoming the same thing at the same time each week.

Grade: C-
