Title This: WWE Raw Reaction 4-30

Randy Orton def. Jack Swagger in a Beat The Clock Challenge: (4:16 seconds)

What I Liked:

If any two guys can get a good match in a short span, it is these two. Orton and Swagger are able to quickly, but cleanly, transition from one move to the next without many problems. I love when Swagger took out Ortons's knee. That is such an underrated move that looks really painful. Swagger was great at selling Orton's offense, including the DDT and back breaker. Well done from both guys who were obviously given a short amount of time to get over.

What I Disliked:

Like every other match, I wish there was more time. Other than that, Swagger and Orton worked in quick and solid fashion. Randy and Jack both need to find something after this week to keep them relevant. Swagger has so much wasted talent, while Orton has lost some steam over the past few months. Question of the Week: Where do you see Randy Orton going from here?

Grade: B

Kofi Kingston and R-Truth def. Primo and Epico to win the WWE Tag Team Championship:

What I Liked:

This was a really great tag team match. Primo and Epico are really good at feeding off of one another, much like a traditional tag team should be. Truth gets beaten down a bit until he hot tags Kofi. Kingston has an entertaining offensive explosion as soon as he gets into the ring. Truth and Kofi should have won the tag titles a while ago, especially because they are more marketable and more popular than Primo and Epico. The match was entertaining and fast paced, much like these great athletes do each week.

What I Disliked:

Primo and Epico may get lost after tonight. Hopefully they will not, but all signs point to yes. AW has been backstage trying to recruit talent, so that may help them be seen each week, but they were not even see as champions. So, what makes you believe they will appear more? Kofi and truth have NOTHING else to do, so this works. My only concern is why should we invest and think the Tag Team Division is back when you put two single's competitors together? It will be interesting to see if they find competition. Will Darren Young and Titus O'Neil be their only competition? There is not a lot of future plans they can make for them right now, and that is their fault.

Grade: B
