Beth Phoenix def. Alicia Fox:

What I Liked:

Not much to report on the in ring aspect of the match. Phoenix does her usual move set and quickly pick up the win. Alicia Fox is really attractive and has a great look. It may be only a matter of time when her chance is up again.

What I Disliked:

Why are we investing time into Layla as the Divas Champion? We have not been given a reason to care, and until then, I won't care to invest any of my opinions. It is rushed, forced, and so illogical to have her win so quickly.

Grade: D

Kane def. Big Show: Big Show Gets Fired:

What I Liked:

The match between the two bigs was not terrible by any means. You were able to get that slugfest going from the get go. I felt like the spear, which I saw right in front of my eyes, was excellent. Big Show does a great job safely throwing his weight around. As for Kane, he was used as a distraction in a much bigger angle. I enjoyed how he was utilized in this match.

What I Disliked:

The Kane Chokeslam was awful. It looked bad live, and even worse on TV. Show should have gotten counted out instead. After the match, I absolutely hated how long the segment went. We get it, this has been his life for so long. Even though Show is a really good actor and crying immediately, this segment lacked so much. The crowd was invested, but it took Laurinaitis about 14 minutes to fire Show after he did what was asked of him. It needed to be done quicker and more effectively.

Grade: C-
