To be fair they weren't great shows but there were a few good moments.
I'm surprised Balor came out for the first match on Raw. Ambrose helped and made it a good outcome.
Is Roman going to be credited with keeping Braun out for 4 to 6 weeks with his operation happening? Makes sense in someways, but didn't seem like enough of a beat down for that to happen. But Roman is the man so maybe it is to most people.
They made Truth & 'Dust seem like they might win the tag team match which shows how easy it is to put people over. Glad they didn't win, but good work anyway.
Joe & Rollins was a good match, but possibly seems like it should be bigger than a Raw match. Dean and Wyatt happened as well.
Smackdown made Nakamura look good, and also made Ziggler look bad for saying 'that will be edited out'. Crowds are obviously in to Nakamura so hopefully the match will back this up. They should just get him in the main event scene rather than messing around with him. Nothing to lose.
Getting the feeling they aren't liking Sami anymore by making him have the talking badly and annoying people, but he still performs in the ring. Main event was alright but nothing special.
I didn't have access to the shows this week as I am out of the US and wasn't able to find it here. I am sure it was on but I didn't see it.
It's hard to watch the shows these days - there's so many hours and so little content in the hours. I can't watch some of the interminable promos - especially when the McMahons or HHH get going. Plus the announcers leave me kind of cold.
Going to watch Raw next week tho - it's on my to-do list
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

I was watching Raw, I loved how they got Golden Truth over as something to care about, but I still wound up just turning it off and going to bed (I watch the DVR'd versions of both Raw and Smackdown). It's weird, there's probably more talent on both shows now than maybe ever, but it's hard to have that clearly defined GUY when the big belt is split between brands, one half of which is invisible and on a side show attraction that doesn't need it to get over and isn't getting it over by not being around (Lesnar) and the other half is on Orton, who's a phenomenal worker but has always been a meh, placeholder champ ever since he won his first world title (as in at this point, I expect him to lose it more than defend it).

Jerry Lynn is making his return to the ring this Friday against Justin Credible at Hardcore Homecoming so he's ready to get back in the ring, whether TNA is going to use him right away I don't know, but it sure would be nice to see him at the anniversa...
