Overall Review: This was a better show than last week. For the most part a real solid show. I liked that they did something different with Darby and Sting instead of them coming out to the ring with the snow effect and scaring away Team Taz. Team Taz’s promo with them beating up the merchandise crew was cool, at least they were trying to be bad asses here. Matt Hardy trying to recruit Adam Page is interesting so I’ll see where it goes from there. The match with Jericho and MJF was designed to establish them being the Inner Circle tag team and I predicted in my mind that they might win it, that was until they announced The Bucks were in it but they might still do that. I did like the match between Dax and Jungle Boy. It surprised the hell out of me with their chemistry but I think the match went on way too long especially with what FTR was going to do after the match. I’m not too big on Cody having a rivalry with Shaq and the promo with him, Arn and Red Velvet taking Brandi’s spot for Revolution was pretty good but it really didn’t help me get excited about this feud. The opening match I thought was really good. I’m not a fan of Lance Archer losing and getting beaten up the way he did but I guess they needed to give him some sympathy so this was the way to do it. I think Lance should’ve won then get beaten down by Butcher, Blade and Kingston but that’s just me. Overall though, it was a good solid show to sit through.

Grade: 6/10
