5/30/11 RAW

Dolph Ziggler vs. Kofi Kingston: **1/2

Kelly Kelly & Eve Torres vs. Brie Bella & Nikki Bella: 3/4*

CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio: **3/4

Evan Bourne vs. Jack Swagger: *

R-Truth vs. John Cena: DUD

And we open with a Memorial Day video package, of course.

Woohoo R-Truth by the merchandise stand. I think he's much better on the mic as a heel. To me, he's just way more entertaining that way.

Great match between Ziggler and Kingston. The right guy won here. Dolph needs to get pushed again. Screw the black hair, I'm glad he went back to blonde.

Decent promo with Del Rio and Ricardo. Feuding with Kane perhaps?

Average divas match in this one. Better than most of the divas matches I've seen lately, so that's a plus. Looking forward to this Kharma interview later in the night.

And now Cole's segment with Riley. Cole of course takes Miz's side. Riley comes out to new theme sounds OK to me. I like the opening to the theme for sure.

Cole of course forgets about Virgil attacking DiBiase in a similar manner, calling this the worst form of backstabbing and treachery in WWE history. Well, I guess that's true in a sense because the Virgil stuff was back in WWF days and we were actually allowed to say "wrestling" on the show. I like how WWE is using Alex Riley. Riley is getting lots of pops from the crowd because Miz and Cole are so good at generating heel heat.

Wait, they're allowed to say "bastard" on WWE programming? Huh?! Sure. Nice brawl for Riley and Miz.

Whoa, another great match? But it was between Rey and Punk. No surprise there.

It's Kharma promo time. I absolutely loved it. It was honest, it was serious, and it capitalized on Kharma's potential as a face. Kharma is pregnant and will be back in about a year. Bellas come out to get heel heat. So wait a minute, could we really have a divas feud planned for a year from now? What is going on here? WWE is actually doing something with the divas that I'm interested in -- big time.

Yeah, that main event was lame. At least it had a purpose to get R-Truth a win and mega heel heat.
