Overall Show Rating: 4.5/5

There were some really great moments on the show.  The Diva’s Championship match was one of the best Diva’s matches I’ve seen in a while – great work by Kaitlyn and AJ Lee!  Alberto Del Rio was highly aggressive during the World Championship match.  Lots of near falls and hard-hitting action.  Heel turn by Del Rio … worked because by the end of this match, I wanted to punch him! Poor Ziggler.  CM Punk made a triumphant return – the crowd was CRAZY for him!!! Great match by Punk-Jericho.

Match of the Night:  Kaitlyn vs. AJ Lee or CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho or Del Rio vs. Ziggler (three-way tie)
