Jack Korpela takes over on commentary this week, alongside Regal.

Darren Young vs. Regal later tonight. Good job at least making Young relevant on this show.

Bateman/Maxine vs. Titus/AJ...respectable mixed tag match here.

WWE advertising a new Orton DVD set. Not gonna get it, but it looks good.

As Regal goes to the back to change into his ring gear, Striker takes over on color commentary starting with the Tyson Kidd match. Kidd calls Yoshi out, and man, Yoshi comes out in a more intimidating ring attire, reminding me a lot of the Great Muta. This was a great match here. They got a bunch of time to shine, and this new Yoshi Tatsu character intrigues me. So are we calling Yoshi Tatsu by a new name ("Hakori") now?

WWE Network launching in 2012!

Regal and Young close out this show. JTG tries to interfere near the end of the match, but Striker cuts him off. Average stuff here, in my book. Crowd wasn't into it that much.
