Good to see Christian's getting his rematch, and at Over the Limit no less. He had a classy promo. Maybe he won't be turning heel after all, but if he loses at Over the Limit, perhaps all bets will be off.

I was equally surprised that Randy Orton's Chronic Backstabbing Disorder didn't kick in immediately following his tag-team match with Christian, and that Orton recognized that the blind tag was used by Captain Charisma not as a glory-stealing move, but as a completely legitimate strategic move. Christian's got great tag-team instincts, but of course a nine-time tag-team champion ought to.

Sin Cara and Daniel Bryan had a fantastic match; I could dig those guys getting into a series of matches together once Sin Cara's debut win streak plays out. Chavo Guerrero could have a great match with Sin Cara also; in any event it's nice to see that Sin Cara finally has a storyline going on.

I was looking forward to seeing Kharma beat the hell out of Michael Cole, but I guess WWE's gonna make us wait for that moment.

How the heck does The Great Khali go from demanding a World Title match last week to bringing back the Khali Kiss Cam this week?

Cody Rhodes is made of awesome. I was disappointed, however, that we didn't get a "what the hell have you turned into?!" look from his former partner Ted DiBiase while Rhodes was coming out.

I love how Wade Barrett looked at Heath Slater like "Shut the hell up, man!" when he suggested that Wade put up the I-C Title against Ezekiel Jackson. With friends like these...

I do believe Jinder Mahal wonders the same thing, and is well on top of the situation.

It's kind of odd that they're building to a Sin Cara/Chavo feud by having SC beat the likes of Swagger and Bryan, both of whom are much higher up the food chain than Chavo, who's been a virtual jobber for ages.

Could this be a hint towards a Gabriel/Slater turn on Barrett, as they side with Zeke at the PPV?

Missed opportunity by the commentary team: both Christian & Randy Orton were part of very successful tag teams with Edge.

DiBiase shaved! Is he turning face?

(Orton's beard is coming in nicely! Is HE turning heel?) (No.)

Sin Cara's finisher is a great thing to see two guys pull off without getting hurt, but it's one of the dumbest finishers in some time.

Christian if okay with Teddy Long's decision? He's grown as a human being. The old Christian did nothing but harp on management's decisions. He came off like a pussy, but it should make for a better meltdown one would hope.

What's with the guys not wanting help trend? First Sin Cara gets mad at Chavo's help then we go straight to a clip of Jackson not wanting The Corre's help.

I can't help but wonder if the heel turn was the original plan, but they backed off it because of fan backlash. That's...a strange thought, because fan backlash hasn't stopped them from doing anything stupid before. I still don't think Christian's getting the belt back, though. Two paper title reigns in a month won't do that title any favors (not that it's the bastion of credibility, anyway).

That was some sloppy house cleaning from Big Zeke. I was surprised he didn't give Slater and Gabriel whiplash on some of those moves.

I hate Michael Cole more than the next guy, but that was some FANTASTIC heel work he did by tripping up Layla. What a dick! In a good way! I'd tolerate him a lot more if they'd just have him do stuff like that once a week instead of having me hear his grating voice for the entirety of every single show.

The next step in building a good Sin Cara/Chavo Guerrero feud is to actually have CHAVO wrestle and remind us of how awesome he could be when given something to work with. It wasn't all that long ago that he was doing some of his finest heel work against Rey.

I have a bad feeling that all this stuff with Khali is leading to Jinder Mahal/Great Khali vs. Kane/Big Show for the tag titles, in what should be the worst tag team match this side of Team 3D/The Nasty Boys.

Yeah, I couldn't believe it when Chavo actually beat Rey in an "I-Quit" match. (By which I mean, the booking made sense, and anyone would have said I-Quit in those circumstances, but... it was Rey Mysterio he made say those words! Wow!)

Chavo is one of the most poorly utilized guys for the last few years on the WWE roster, though. It would be great to see him getting treated like the fantastic wrestler he really is.

I was gonna say, if that thing on Orton's face passes for a beard, I've been way too hard on my own beard-growing capabilities.

Why does Sin Cara tuck his left arm in like that? I keep waiting for it to snap like a twig.

Boo-urns to Hulu and Youtube for not making this episode available yet. Another victory for legal streaming. Or you know, the opposite of victory.
