Chances are if DEAN doesn't recap it, it doesn't get talked about here.
I remember people were talking about whether or not Rey Mysterio would be a legitimate WWE Champion someday, and I think it would be a cool thing to see, but man did he look TINY next to JBL in the main event. Seeing him trying to do the old 'cut the ring in half' against JBL, who was just far too large, was almost laughable. I still think he could do it, but they'd really need to play up his speed advantage, something they didn't really do in the tag match. On the plus side, he made JBL's offense look huge.
The Booker and Heidenreich match was surprisingly decent. I guess any match where Heidenreich takes unprotected chair shots to the head isn't too bad.
I saw someone mention it elsewhere, but Cena FUing Teddy Long on the same week that Orton RKOs Bischoff? Can't they spread out the 'finishers on GMs' a bit rather than doing two in one week?
Nice, also, that they didn't mention the #1 Contenders match for the Cruiserweight Title on Velocity. What's wrong with a little bit of hype? It's going to determine a Wrestlemania match, so why not just say "Tune into Velocity for the #1 Contender's Match" before a commercial break sometime? Unless they start doing things like that (or just putting the matches on Smackdown instead of Velocity in the first place), the Cruiserweights aren't going to make it.
