R Truth vs. Evan Bourne Review:

Bourne and Truth start off quickly. Truth kicks Bourne in the head, and sends him over the ropes. Truth locks in a head lock onto Bourne, but Bourne hits elbows and struggles to get out. He reverses a suplex, and Bourne hits a knee to Truth. He begins to unload kicks to Truth, and hits a kneeling hurricanranna. Bourne goes up for his Air Bourne, but Truth gets out of the way, and Truth connects with his finisher for the win.

Reaction:

Eliminate the Mahal garbage and give that time to this match. Why would you waste time on a match like that when this one could use the extra time for a great match between two athletes. They worked quickly and effectively to remind us about the match on Sunday, but I would have loved to see these guys go one on one for about ten minutes, not four. This segment gets a C-, but it was enough to give the Miz and Truth the advantage heading into Night of Champions. I am excited to see how they book this tag match, as I feel they could feud for a few more months, until they want to break apart Miz and Truth.
