I didn't watch Money in the Bank so this RAW was mainly to get me up to speed. When I saw the opening promo with Punk and Big Show I already knew the main event was going to have Big Show beat up CM Punk and have Cena come out, save him and then tease the MITB slot. Throughout the night interesting things happened for ole Platinum fan. Daniel Bryan is still trying to win over crazy AJ who's becoming a little less crazy...only a little. They have a match with Miz and Eve. I really like the Miz's new look as it makes him look like a real main eventer and it's great that he's back. I suspect Eve and AJ will be fighting for awhile but I wonder what Daniel Bryan wants from her? Is she turning heel or he turning face? I enjoyed their double yes chants after they made wedding plans though.
Kofi and R-Truth defeat the Primetime Players defending their Tag titles. Alberto Del Rio who was not a happy camper took out his rage of losing to Sheamus on Zack Ryder during their match but at the end of the day Rey Mysterio came back and took down Del Rio. Good to have Rey back.
Ryback and Jack Swagger almost had a match but it was thrown out after Swagger tried to cheapshot Ryback, but it wasn't enough to stop Ryback. Goldberg chants still are on with him. Rikishi was the special legend for the one man jobbing band, Heath Slater. Good to see him back. I would have enjoyed seeing him and da Funkasaurus team up and have a dance off.
Dolph Ziggler cut a great promo on Chris Jericho about him losing his touch and how he hasn't won a match since coming back. Great promo, I felt the emotion and tension during that promo. I want to see these two go at it.
Finally Cena announced next week on the 1000 episode he'll be cashing in to challenge Punk for the title to see who the best in the world really is. You know Big Show made some good points to both Cena and Punk about how the WWE works. I really enjoyed Punk as the champ for so long and I'll miss it when it is over as I thought he was a great WWE champion during his long reign. But the way I see it, Cena will beat Punk and then feud with Rock over the title at Summerslam. It just looks that way to me. If it is over the title then Cena stands a better chance of winning this time.
