5/9/11 RAW

Brie Bella & Nikki Bella vs. Eve Torres & Kelly Kelly: 1/2*

Mason Ryan vs. Kane: 1/2*

Dolph Ziggler vs. Santino Marella: 1/4*

John Cena vs. Alex Riley: 1/2*

Kofi Kingston vs. Jack Swagger (U.S. Title): *3/4

The Miz vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Rey Mysterio: ***1/4

Was that Nunzio refereeing the divas match? Cool. Divas match was short. The whole point...Kharma destruction again! Poor Eve gets taken out this time.

Yawn...a short Kane/Mason Ryan match. Best part was Punk's involvement and then getting nuked with Big Show's WMD.

Another short match followed...Dolph and Santino this time. This is not impressing me at all.

I have to say, the Cole/Lawler segment was good again. WWE is really capitalizing on how good Cole is at playing his heel character. Sure, I can't stand Michael Cole on commentary, but the feud overall has been a success, in my book. I've been getting antsy wanting Lawler to just absolutely nuke Michael Cole without any controversial finish. But you know, I'll settle for Lawler grabbing Cole's tie and smashing Cole's face into the Cole Mine. That was good.

So, because of Swagger "accepting" on behalf of Cole, it's on: Cole/Lawler in another match, and Cole is pissed. If Cole wins this time, Lawler will induct Cole into the WWE Hall of Fame and give Cole his Hall of Fame ring. I would guess Lawler wins this time.

Main event was very good. Lots of action, nice flow to the match.

Oh great. Cena vs. Miz at Over the Limit in an "I Quit" match. Guess Cena's winning. Again. Unless they pull a Rock/Mankind in that one.

As for R-Truth, his feud with John Morrison will likely still continue. Morrison only has a pinched nerve in his neck, so he's out 4-6 weeks -- instead of what I feared (major neck surgery can put people on the shelf over one year). Hope Morrison heals fast.
