The Shield vs. Ryback, Daniel Bryan, and Kane

This match was absolutely phenomenal. For a last minute replacement match, this six-man tag really went above and beyond any expectations I had for it and delivered one of my favorite matches of the year. It was a joy seeing The Shield step up and make the best of the opportunity they were presented with.

I am glad that WWE learned from the Nexus mistake and had the Shield go over here. They had a dominant performance throughout and there will be plenty of footage available to make the group look like badasses to the viewers that didn't order last night's show.

John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler

It was odd seeing this match take priority over the six man, but with the moment that it ended with I can understand. Ziggler got his time to shine and AJ's turn was given proper focus.

I am thrilled to see AJ turn heel. She needed something to help get a bit of her previous fire back, and I feel like she can be a very strong heel for WWE, provided they don't try and put her in another authority role. I'm not sure if they will be able to capture the magic she displayed with her previous run in the limelight, but I certainly look forward to seeing WWE try.

Overall Show

Last night's show was solid. It wasn't the most hyped PPV in existence, but it provided a few hours of entertaining wrestling and the marquee matches delivered.
