  • Kane vs. Rey Mysterio

    This was a solid episode of Raw. The cage match between CM Punk and Chris Jericho was a good way to open up the show. Some people get upset over having the World Title contested over in the first match, but I thought it got the crowd pumped up for what was to come. I like this Jamie Noble storyline and the match with Paul Burchill was fun and quick. The six-man tag was harmless yet I'm upset with how quickly Kofi Kingston's push has diminished. On the other hand Evan Bourne is getting a chance to shine which is really unbelievable. The HBK/Jericho ladder match should also be very good at No Mercy.moreless
