This Week's Challenge: None.
Is there any point to these challenges anymore? Titus will probably win each week from now on anyway.

We're in Philly tonight...advertising a Necklace on a Pole match between Yoshi and Tyson.

Bateman is rocking the "Rocky Balboa" trunks tonight. Darren Young is at ringside for the match, much like how Bateman was at ringside last week. Bateman's deranged look reminds me a bit of Edge. Predictable ending, and the finish didn't look too good (Titus needs to work on taking that finisher). Bateman needed the win here to keep momentum going.

Dammit, I am so jealous of Hornswoggle. He gets to work a storyline with AJ!

Hey, Kozlov isn't saying "double-double-E" anymore! At least he didn't in that segment with JTG.

Necklace on a pole match. Another great, physical match here. They really got great chemistry together. Really liked Tyson using the Boston Crab in the ropes, taking advantage of the No-DQ rule. A little confusing finish, but it was pretty good. Yup, gotta love that they fight over a piece of plastic, just like Regal said.

Finished the show off by replaying the Cena/Mysterio match from RAW. I thought it was damn excellent. Crowd was really into this one.
