8/29/11 RAW

Randy Orton vs. Dolph Ziggler: ***1/4

CM Punk vs. The Miz: **1/2

Sin Cara vs. Jack Swagger: *1/4

Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne vs. David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty: *

Brie Bella vs. Kelly Kelly: DUD

John Cena & Sheamus vs. Christian & Mark Henry: **

Well, I guess the brand extension is over, officially anyway. HHH unites both brands. Not anything new, since that's what's really gone on (off and on) for the last few years. Nash comes out to the nWo music! WTF, Nash vs. Punk at Night of Champions? Oh good grief. But damn, I love Punk's mic work.

Awesome match between Orton and Ziggler. Great chemistry in the ring. Ziggler's adopted the superkick in more of his matches. Wonder if he'd ever use that as a finisher like HBK -- or if WWE would let him.

Cena wants Alberto, but Mark Henry comes down instead. And now, enter Christian. Christian and Henry want to get Cena, but Sheamus comes down. Great White!

Nice Miz shirt. Good match between Miz and Punk, but damn that R-Truth interference....

Sin Cara time...a.k.a. Hunico. Average match with Swagger. Again, more of a shot for Sin Cara to show off flashy moves. At least Swagger got some offense in before Ziggler and Vickie got involved.

Air-Boom time! Well, that was a relatively quick match.

Divas match was short. Oh...Kelly finally lost and Brie finally won. Something like a 15-match win streak for Kelly and a 9-match losing streak for Brie. At least Beth and Natalya look real dolled up tonight. Barely much crowd reaction. Not much interest from me, either.

Main event was good. Liked hearing about Mark Henry's "Hall of Pain."

Oh, there we go! Punk vs. HHH! Sounds a lot better than having Nash in there.
