Randy Orton defeated Damien Sandow in a rematch from their contest on Friday. That night, Orton picked up the victory. Tonight would be the same thing. Sandow came out and cut a promo mimicking the song of Orton's, which really made me laugh. This guy is gold on the microphone and needs to be heard before every match. I look forward to his antics each week. Orton took a page out of his heel persona, kicking and stomping his opponent very slowly and calculated his every move. This is what made Orton interesting. He continues to be stuck in the same feud with Big Show, something I dislike. He gets a Knockout Punch from Show as he is heading to the back. It was quick and efficient enough to continue the storyline.

Grade: B-

Fandango loses to R-Truth as he walks out. They do a few dance moves and the judges, led by Jericho, give him low scores. If you would have told me this idea a year ago, I would have laughed and said it could never work. This character is timed perfectly in the state of the WWE, as is his feud with Chris Jericho. Jericho can make anyone look good and is a true professional who will get the right person over in due time.

Grade: C+

Antonio Cesaro defeated Zack Ryder. It looks like Cesaro is going through another change. Ever since he yodeled his way to the ring, which was a horrible idea, he piled up loss after loss. Tonight, he dominates and cuts a really good promo about nobody being better than him. He talks about his wrestling ability and that nobody is competition for him. Well done and very old school type stuff here from a guy who reminds me so much of an 80's wrestler. He has the intelligence, look, and charisma that is just the right amount of interesting without being over the top. Let's just get him more competition and better matches. Hell, a feud would be nice too.

Grade: C+

Kaitlyn, Cameron, and Naomi defeat The Bellas and AJ Lee. There was not much to comment on here besides the lack of star power in the division right now. It comes to show you how far they have fallen. Kaitlyn has a good look, but does not get the right push. Her stalker storyline is better than any match she puts on. AJ Lee has a good look to her, but will she be able to be a believable champion? Unlikely. WWE brings the Bellas back for what reason?

Grade: D
