This Week's Challenge:
No challenge this week.

Titus and Hornswoggle start the show. Hornswoggle wants Maryse in the ring. He gives Maryse a ring box. LOL, a Ring-Pop inside! I haven't seen that in years! Talk to the hand, Hornswoggle. Wait...what's Zack Ryder doing on the show? Oh right, Ryder was Titus' pro in season 2. I can't believe we're supposed to remember this stuff. True, Titus got farther with Hornswoggle than he did with Zack. Guess we got a match for tonight!

But first, a six-man tag so we can see the other two remaining NXT rookies in action. Long match here (for WWE standards), but I really wasn't into it much. Crowd seemed mostly dead. Then Yoshi got the hot tag and the match was done soon thereafter.

RAW recap, which basically highlights CM Punk. He brought up a real-life situation: his WWE contract is expiring after the Money in the Bank PPV and he's apparently leaving. If it's true that he is leaving, I want WWE to let him do anything in his match with Cena. Make it as close to five stars as possible. Let Punk go out as champ. That would be awesome as hell.

Yoshi making sure Tyson Kidd doesn't touch his shrine. And to get a cheap pop in Hershey, PA, Yoshi takes out a Hershey's chocolate bar.

Main event time. Decent crowd reaction for both guys. Other than that, pretty much an average match here.

Someone will be eliminated next week...who will it be?
