RybackRyback Defeats Primo

What I Liked:

What was there to like?

What I Disliked:

So, Ryback feuds with Miz briefly, gets involved with WWE Champion CM Punk, and then faces Primo? Where is the logic behind this? If you want people to buy into him in the main event picture, or even just appearing on the same screen as Punk, this should NEVER happen. He struggled for a minute against a guy who weighs 100 pounds less, someone who he could easily squash with the jobbers he faced? How ridiculous was this? I would at least give him someone meaningful.

Grade: D

Layla Defeats Alicia Fox

What I Liked:

This was a pretty solid match in the Divas Division. Layla, since losing her title, has not really done much to get her name back into the conversation. Alicia Fox continues to be used to get other Divas over. Both showed some decent athleticism and timing in the match, something that gets overlooked when you talk about women wrestling. I liked that Fox got some offense in the match, especially when targeting the knee that Layla injured. It was mentally correct and intelligent on many levels. I also enjoyed Layla's Bombshell, a nice way to get her finisher to look better than just a normal roundhouse kick.

What I Disliked:

It was just a predictable match, that is all. We never really thought Fox would win.
