Primetime Players Defeat Primo and Epico and The Uso's

What I Liked:

You needed to find some contenders to Kofi and Truth, so I expected this match to occur. I will talk about what I did not like in a second, but well done from three tag teams trying to make a name for themselves. Primetime Players are more complete as a unit, a character, and a personality. The Uso's have some nice moves, but still do not get over with the crowd. Primo and Epico are also very solid wrestlers, but they have no personality to attract the crowd. The action in the ring was fast throughout, and the end saw Young steal a victory from Uso's after nice top rope splash. I enjoyed the match, but there were glaring weaknesses.

What I Disliked:

I really wanted to see Kidd and Gabriel in this match. I'm not sure why they were excluded, but it does not make sense. Those two guys are more over with the crowd than the other tag teams, except for PTP. The match was good, but you can tell that Uso's and PTP are still very green. They are not guys that can be relied on to carry a match, or carry a feud. This will come in time, but it really shows you how weak the tag team division is.

Grade: C+

Wade Barrett Defeats Yoshi Tatsu

What I Liked:

Welcome back, Wade Barrett. His music is much better, his ring gear fits him more, and he looks like a guy that will just kick some ass. I love the physicality from Barrett, and feel like he needs to immediately get into the World Heavyweight Championship picture. Wade seems more comfortable in this position, and not in the one he was with a rose and long jacket. He needs no overexaggerative gimmick.

What I Disliked:

Really, Yoshi Tatsu? You could not have him come back and take out someone worthy, like Sheamus and Del Rio? This was a let down for his return, but thank God he has value in so many ways.

Grade: B-
