Antonio CesaroThe Undercard Part 2

Antonio Cesaro defeated William Regal. I am not sure why Regal is still used. I know he used to be a great wrestler, but what is the point of having him right now? I do like Colter and Cesaro pairing together. This will work better than with Swagger because Cesaro has more to offer. He is a better wrestler, is still young, continues to be impressive to the live crowd with his unique fighting, and is a powerhouse. I love this idea and think it has a great chance to be important in the long term for WWE. Colter is a great mouthpiece for any young heel who is having trouble getting over because of his mic work.

Grade: C+

Dean Ambrose vs. Kane ends when The Shield interfere and take out Kane. This was very quick and should have went on much longer. I feel this is the beginning of teasing the return of Kane's brother. If it was me, I would have Kane really get beaten down and buried to a point where he needs saved. Who better to save him than his brother? Maybe this will be a new twist into the storyline for The Shield.

Grade: C

Chris Jericho defeated Heath Slater. Why was this match on Raw? Jericho goes from Punk to Slater…. yeah. Slater is actually a good wrestler but in a terrible gimmick.

Grade: C-

Curtis Axel defeated Sin Cara in a match that we have seen 3 times in the past month. I do not get why Axel could not face someone else. Anyone else would be better for Axel. I would much rather give Miz, Ryder, Riley, or any young guy a shot at Axel. We know what to expect from Cara and the crowd simply could care less.

Grade: C
