Summer Rae returns
First, let me say that I'm glad Summer is back and that the Divas division can definitely benefit from her return.
However, I couldn't care less for her apparent feud with Fandango and Layla. Could a pairing with The Miz be imminent? I certainly hope not. The live crowd reacted to Summer's brawl with Layla, but although she came off as a babyface on Raw, she was right back to being a heel on SmackDown. So, which is it? Better yet, why should I care?
Cesaro vs. Mark Henry
While I wasn't necessarily looking forward to this matchup, I was hoping it would save Main Event from being a complete throwaway show this week. Sadly, it did not. The match didn't even come to fruition.
Viewers instead had to sit through an arm wrestling contest that lasted less than a minute and ended with Henry being buried underneath the commentary table in weak fashion.
Remember when Henry used to be an unstoppable force to be reckoned with? Yeah, me neither.
Damien Sandow vs. R-Truth
I have simply come to accept the fact that WWE has no plans for Sandow at the moment, but he went from him being "The Voice of the Voiceless" one week to dressing up as Sherlock Holmes the next. The fact that he wrestled in the Holmes outfit was ridiculous in and of itself and made the match even more painful to sit through.
The win did nothing for Sandow, and why this match was given so much time when Cesaro vs. Henry wasn't given any at all is beyond me.
Naomi vs. Aksana
One would think that Naomi would have gone directly after Aksana upon her return to the ring in March after she busted her eye and took her out of action for several weeks.
Instead, she decided to wait two months before getting her revenge. It could've been much worse if the commentators didn't bother to acknowledge their history at all, but their match didn't feel any more special than any other Divas match because they haven't feuded at all since Naomi's comeback.
As much as it pains me to put Rose in the Low Points column, it was necessary to do so. I enjoyed his appearances on Raw and SmackDown, and the live England crowds seemed to enjoy him as well, but he hasn't evolved his character at all since his debut. He's nothing more than an entrance and a few one-liners.
His feud with Jack Swagger hasn't been anything special, and he'll probably go back to not receiving a reaction next week in the States. Perhaps things will change when he starts wrestling (I expect his debut match to come at Payback), but he needs to prove that he'll be more than just a flash in the pan.
