Michael McGillicutty & David Otunga vs. The Big Show & Kane (Tag Team Titles): *1/2

Jack Swagger vs. Evan Bourne: *

Kelly Kelly, Beth Phoenix, Eve Torres, & Gail Kim vs. Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Maryse, & Melina: N/A

Kofi Kingston vs. Drew McIntyre: *

John Cena & Rey Mysterio vs. CM Punk & R-Truth: **1/4

Yes, WWE was in Portland, Oregon, tonight. I couldn't go due to work. Looks like I missed seeing Bret Hart live. And Josh Mathews still says "Or-eh-gone." R-Truth with the heel interruption promo. Good for R-Truth, he needs the heel heat. He still has that charisma to entertain, just in a heel-ish way now. Always nice to see.

Punk on commentary was awesome -- better than the tag match.

Hmm...Big Show injury angle? Um...OK, sure.

Poor Evan Bourne. At least Swagger re-introduced his Swagger Bomb as a finisher. Oh wait, then Bourne got a piece of Swagger after the match. Feud maybe?

Cole apologizes, Lawler shows the awesome photos of last night. Good, hopefully that feud is over.

Miz promo time. Of course, he blames Alex Riley for the loss again. Woohoo, Riley and Miz fight! Maybe it's time for Alex Riley to shine now? The crowd was really popping for Riley here.

The divas match lasted all of 10 seconds and then enter Kharma! Divas circle around her, not backing down this time. And Kharma...drops to her knees and cries?! WTF.

Kofi/Drew didn't really matter to me. Hey! Dolph Ziggler has blonde hair again!

Finally, something meaningful: the Randy Savage tribute video. Awesome as usual. He was definitely one of my favorites growing up, watching his feuds with Hogan and Warrior. And who can ever forget his epic match with Steamboat? I got goosebumps seeing the Macho Man/Miss Elizabeth wedding storylines. He'll be missed. RIP Macho Man Randy Savage....

Good main event. Bret Sharpshooter was awesome. Punk was even rocking some vintage Randy Savage gear tonight. I love it.
