Punk was great again tonight, and that match with Jericho was the best thing on Raw in ages.

I didn't like seeing both Cesaro and Barrett lose, it makes their titles look like the jokes they are, although I understand why they did, since they were facing two of the chosen three or four guys. Although Ryback is still an irritatingly bad, turn-the-channel heat gimmick and Sheamus has become the santa claus of fighting irishmen, all jovial and utterly uncaring about any of the titles (like all the top stars in WWE aside from Punk - HHH's influence...). Orton can't lose at this point because he's going to win the Chamber and go on to feud with Del Rio at mania.

I loved what Brock did to Miz, who continues to be the worst, most irritating wannabe face I've ever seen. Although I'm not entirely sure how he didn't kill him with furniture. I was really surprised to see no HHH tonight.

The end segment was exactly what I've been expecting to see happen to the Shield for weeks. They're about to go the way of the Nexus. Although there is some small glimmer of hope in that a) they didn't get destroyed, they ran (which is actually good - them left laying would have been infinitely worse) and b) Cole played up the idea that they'd get their revenge. So the damage done to their image tonight is not irreparable. Although it looks like Cena/Sheamus/Ryback will own them at the ppv.

I thought they were smart to play all the Rock promos during the show, to keep him in the audience's mind, but I thought it was also smart to not have Punk or anyone else emphasize that he wasn't there. (He is, last I heard, scheduled for every Raw between now and mania, and many smackdowns, so there's no point in making a big thing out of the one show he missed)

Glad to see Bruno finally getting his due.
