RybackThe Undercard Part Two

The Wyatt Family defeated Miz and Kofi Kingston. I was impressed once again with Luke Harper in the ring. He is really tapping into his character and is carrying Rowan. Rowan has a big build and a unique look, but his look does not match what he accomplishes in the ring. A big boot here and there will only get you so far. As Bray Wyatt looks on from the outside, Kofi hits Trouble in Paradise but Harper hits a lariat for the win. Wyatt's continue to improve and grow up right in front of our eyes. It will take that ONE person to help them get to another level. Is it a Kane return?

Grade: B-

Big E Langston and CM Punk defeated Ryback and Curtis Axel after the Langston vs. Axel match was interrupted. Punk played the weak link here so Langston could get the hot tag. As Langston gets in the ring, you see how talented he really is. He hits big clotheslines and shows his speed running the ropes. It is not everyday you see a man of his size combine with the speed he showed. I am a believer of Langston and this team team worked for him tonight. We find out the match for the Intercontinental Championship is a "kick-off" match which I am against. Put him in the main card and let him either win the title or come so close that he will be back at it next month. The combination of both tag teams felt original and pure. Both had strong men and both had great technicians. Heyman tells the subplots from the outside with his facial expressions and vocals. He is never TOO much outside of the ring. Isn't Langston a HUGE upgrade from R-Truth?

Grade: B-

Real Americans defeated Tons of Funk in a tag team match that we have seen time and time again. The attraction of the match was Cesaro using the giant swing before Swagger locks in the Patriot Lock. Zeb, Cesaro, and Swagger are really good together and hopefully are being built up into something more than just lower mid card talents.

Grade: C
