My personal highlight was during the clever yet lacking blackout (lacking because it was a blackout, and wrestling stinks via radio), when Lesnar calls Michaels 'ya little weasel'. Not because of Heenan or anything, and not to take anything away from Lesnar's physicality, but that was the best PG insult Lesnar had. I know the guy could cripple me legit if I met him, but a part of me would take it in stride now, considering what I'd be hearing from his mouth would probably cheer me up. My nose broken; "Take that, ya bozo!" My shoulder dislocated; "How ya like that, you nincompoop!" I'd kind of feel like I was Curly getting slapped around by Moe.
The matches were on the up and up. Another non-desicion put in the hands of the WWE Universe led to a pretty sweet three-way. The big tag match was good, if only because it was so unlike any match I've seen in a while.
If you think 3 hours is a drag, I highly suggest a DVR. I usually start watching late anyway, and after fast forwarding past all the recaps from Smackdown, the Lesnar/HHH feud, and 'earlier tonight' I get my good old 2 hours of solid Raw.
And the non-main event, while wholly captivating, could have taken place before Cena and Punk's awesomeness.

Originally posted by cfgb There was some women's wrestling, but I took the opportunity to put my BBQ away. Presumably there was a result. My wife noted one of them "looks like a man" so I assume the Glamazon was present or Chyna showed up 3 weeks late to the DX reunion.
You can't see it but I'm bowing to the absolute hilarity of this paragraph.
On balance, I'd say that the Daniels/Styles confrontation was marked with an economy of storytelling, particularly when juxtaposed with the earlier segment, which I believe point more toward the problems with TNA.
