8/1/11 RAW

Divas Battle Royal: *

R-Truth & The Miz vs. Rey Mysterio & John Morrison: **1/2

David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty vs. Santino Marella & Zack Ryder: DUD

Alberto Del Rio vs. Evan Bourne: *

Opening skit between Punk and HHH was just awesome as hell. Oh yeah.

Regarding the matches: The Divas Battle Royal was a snore until the end. Extremely impressive stuff from Beth. Guess Beth is heel again. The first tag match was great...good heel heat for Truth and Miz. The second tag match with the tag champs...oh, a match even occurred? I didn't even notice. Del Rio/Bourne was quite short and nothing to really write home about.

The final segment was interesting. I didn't expect John Lauranaitis to come out to interrupt HHH, but it did get my attention. Predictable that we'd get Cena/Punk II at SummerSlam. Loved the end to the program with Cena and Punk posing with their belts trying to get the crowd reaction. The sound guy was really working overtime tonight switching themes. I wonder what a Punk/Cena remixed theme would sound like....
