Man, if Bryan vs Sheamus had gotten a proper go home sequence, we could have had 4.5-5 range. As it stands, I can't in good conscience give it more than 4.25. Doesn't matter, this was an arrival match that announced both as upper mid card fixtures and future main eventers. Sheamus proved he could work a match that downplayed his size and strength, and Bryan is 1 for 1 on working a main event style match.
Cena vs Brock was a small piece of cinema. I loved the visuals of Brock standing on the stairs in the middle of the ring, and just how sadistic he was. I agree that the ending completely screwed what should have been a Clubber Lang storyline, and could have turned into a great "Dark Period" of Brock killing everything that moved for several months. But hey, what do I know? I never wrote for a soap opera so my opinion means jack.
Punk vs Jericho I'm going to have to watch again.
I am anticipating Punk vs Bryan, but not so much the return of Johnny Ace.
