Vickie GuerreroThe Main Events

Vickie Guerrero is Fired. This took up about 20 minutes of WWE Raw, with Vince, Stephanie, and Triple H deciding her fate. Vince votes to keep her, while Triple H votes to fire her. The last vote is from the WWE App, and they boot her. Stephanie yells "You're Fired" to Vickie. After she cries and rolls around like a child, Vince goes heel on the crowd and the WWE Universe. He hires Brad Maddox as GM.

-I like Maddox and think he can do good things here. I just am so sick of the GM storylines because we KNOW that they are not really in charge of Raw. Everyone has seen behind the black curtain, where the three in the ring make the calls, not a fake character. Nonetheless, WWE loves this storyline and will use it to culminate a feud between the family at Wrestlemania 30. I am alright with that because ratings need The McMahon Family. I expect Linda and Shane, over the path to Wrestlemania 30, to make an appearance.

Grade: B-

CM Punk defeated Randy Orton in the main event of the night. Once again, we get another stellar match. I really felt like Orton kicked it up a notch, being more aggressive and physical with a much weaker (in strength) opponent. Punk would be able to hit a few kicks and running knees to Orton to stun him. Orton and Punk came to the outside to fight only for Orton to hit his hanging DDT. Orton gets caught with a kick to the head and gets dropped with a GTS. Orton is the BEST seller of the GTS I have seen. Punk wins and celebrates until Daniel Bryan comes out and cleans the ring of the men. He stands tall to end the night. Well done on all ends from Raw. They try so hard to make you HAVE and WANT to buy WWE Money in the Bank. They accomplished it tonight.

Grade: A-

Raw Grade: B+
