The matches:

Carlito def. John Morrison

This ended up being a lumberjack match after Morrison and the Miz tried to flee the match. Teddy Long also announced the the Wrestlemania unification match will also be a Lumberjack match. Matt Striker explained the origin of the match goes all the way back to Paul Bunyan's days.

Tommy Dreamer & Evan Bourne def. Jack Swagger & Tyson Kidd

Bourne landed his Shooting Star press just about as perfect as it can be landed to pin Kidd. The announcers went back and forth on Swagger 'did-you-know' factoids that were pretty funny.

The end was MVP's VIP Lounge with the participants of the MiTB match. No real shenanigans, just a lot of jawing between everyone especially Sheldon Benjamin and MVP. Kane said nothing, only looking on in the back until MVP asked him for a comment - he instead triggered his pyro - end show.

Pretty good show this week but one more match would have been nice. The two matches that were on were pretty good tho.

AKA The Everyone-gets-a-payday match. They have one every Wrestlemania, I think.

That main-event interview did nothing for me. Part of the reason is that I don't think that the MitB needs any storyline or these long drawn-out interview segments to get people excited. It's 8 guys, going for a title shot, in a brutal match. I think that premise is good enough to sell the match. They could've easily done some combination/permutation of the standard MitB showcase match they've been running the past few weeks and I would've been a happier camper.

Decent show nonetheless.

Having to do the hard sell for Wrestlemania really hurt this show, I thought. All the recap segments and whatnot killed the pace, and like you said, the show really could have used another match. I get why they're doing a lumberjack match, but I wouldn't have done it for the tag match. A title unification doesn't need an extra gimmick. Otherwise, I thought that the matches that were on the show were all pretty good, and that the main event interview went about as well as could be expected.

If Hayes would have started his skit with something along the lines of "I wanna tell you a story, about a place you don't wanna be", and then at some point made the requisite Ole lady McDuffie reference...
