6/14/10 RAW (NXT Fallout)

The Miz vs. R-Truth vs. John Morrison vs. Zack Ryder (U.S. Title): **1/4

Evan Bourne vs. Chris Jericho: *1/2

Eve Torres & Gail Kim vs. Maryse & Alicia Fox: 1/2*

The Big Show & Mark Feuerstein vs. Ted DiBiase & Virgil: 1/4*

Santino Marella vs. William Regal: DUD

John Cena & Randy Orton vs. Edge & Sheamus: **3/4

All I have to say about this NXT angle is...I LOVE IT. They played off the Daniel Bryan situation in passing, which is appropriate to me. Michael Cole never mentioned Bryan on the air, and didn't say "good riddance" or anything like that, so that seems to lead toward the release being legit. In any event, if Bryan is brought back onto WWE programming, this opens the door for him to be a face. The NXT graduates, in the meantime, finished the night by making another statement (the right thing for the storyline) and taking Bret out. Good stuff, and I hope they keep this up.

As a note...abducting someone, tossing them in the back of the limo, and proceeding to smash into a bunch of cars is not going to be horrid enough to warrant apparently legitimate firings, but choking a ring announcer with his tie was? Please.
