I have to say RAW this week had a lot of moments that were actually funny. AJ going crazy and slapping Justin Roberts, Cody Rhodes mustache, Brad Maddox being such a douche and his awesome facials, and that segment with Vickie, Khali, and Horny.

The only geniunely good parts were the Punk/Heyman promo and the Miz TV segment. The wrestling was pointless as usual.

That's how you end a show. It was great.

It was nice to see, but WWE always try harder when they are in the big cities because they know the crowds will shit on what we normally see week by week.

The only thing missing tonight was a reason for me to give a shit.

The brawls that you refer to had engaging storylines built around them, as well as enigmatic, once in a lifetime characters and classic angles. That was a huge part of what was going on.

Tonight was just...some regular guys duking it out (minus Ziggler, but he wasn't really involved). A giant mishmash of meaningless storylines with zero consequences and a crisscrossing of characters whom I have no emotional attachment to or personal interest in (again, minus Ziggler), redoing matches, angles and feuds we've seen about a thousand times before, to the point where any novelty has been stomped into the ground and shat on. In other words, the only thing that it had in common with the big McMahon-Helmsley/Rock or Austin/Corporation brawls that we all loved from Attitude was that there were guys in the ring fighting to close a show. All of the psychological factors-emotion, intensity, surprise-any sense of depth, anything engaging to make me feel connected to what was going on...all of which would be present during a brawl from Attitude...completely non-existent during a pathetic 2012 attempt at recreating one iota of that magic.

So yeah, the brawl wasn't terrible or anything, but there was nothing about it that made me invested. Hence, I didn't care about what was going on, and I didn't care about the segment.

Not an awful show. Couple of good matches make me a satisfied viewer. The Vickie shit needs to stop though, she has become intolerable.

Things I liked about the show:

- Good heel promos. Ziggler's at the beginning was great, despite being ruined by the appearance of Sheamus & Big Show. I wish they hadn't done that and just let Ziggler's words carry the opening and be done with that. Punk's was great as expected. Team Rhodes Scholars came across well on the stick too. The Shield gritty shaky cam vignette was MUCH better than their first attempt at a promo they did. Very creepy and unique in presentation.

- The Four Way tag was simple, but effective and it is nice to finally have a sense of rankings & depth within the tag team division. I still feel like the division is missing that one crown jewel for the division to really center around like Beer Money was for TNA or Edge & Christian was for the early 2000s WWE or like The Kings of Wrestling became for ROH. Just throwing some examples out there. Actually, I would much prefer a Kings of Wrestling run than what they are currently doing with Cesaro. Physically he is great and they are booking him decently, but the character is weak sauce for me.

- The closing was wild and crazy which was a nice break from the norm. They did something very cool with Ryback when he threw a Ladder to hit all three members of The Shield. That was a nice visual and the type of cool stuff WCW would do with Goldberg that worked.

What I didn't like:

- Vickie Guerrero/AJ/Cena shit continues to bug me, surprise surprise. When they called AJ Vs. Vickie "A Main Event" I rolled my eyes so far back I thought they might stick that way.

- Sheamus and Big Show clogging up the works, especially in the opening segment. Also, the no contact claus in the contract seems pointless when it was signed just 9 days before the PPV. That isn't really enough time to do a whole lot with it. Steve Austin & Triple H did the same gimmick once, but they played it up for weeks, probably about a month.

- The Cena/Show main event was the same damn match we've seen a million times.

- And of course a lot of the same problems that I have been having with the 3 Hour Raws in general, IE, the constant recapping, having to listen to Cole & Lawler, and the show just feeling like it is dragging out too long.
