I actually thought the show was really quite good this week. The opening tag was really, really good and probably should have been the main event. I'm amazed at how far Kendrick's come since going to Smackdown, and MVP's really been growing on me as well.
Instead of letting that good match be the capper, they felt compelled to drag out the very predictable Taker stuff until then. Taker vs. Vickie is VERY played out. I like Big Show, but he's no replacement for Edge.
I heart Natalya's snap suplex.
Primo and Carlito winning the tag titles is a big improvement over Team Generico. I think Primo makes Carlito better somehow.

DVR missed the first 12-odd minutes of the show ... Did they just go straight into the tag match, or was there some kind of promo/goodbye to the CW at the very beginning?
The most hilarious thing about Tommy Dreamer is that everyone else in WWE, from Shelton Benjamin to dudes who haven't even debuted yet, has a T-shirt available. WWE doesn't even bother printing up a T-shirt for Tommy Dreamer, A MAN WHOSE GIMMICK IS WEARING A T-SHIRT WHILE WRESTLING. And why is that? Because not a god damn person would ever pay money for a Tommy Dreamer shirt. Not even his own mother. As a result he usually ends up wearing a shirt that says "WRESTLEMANIA 24" or "JUDGEMENT DAY." I think it's time for Tommy Dreamer to just print up a T-shirt that says "UPCOMING PAY PER VIEW"

There was a short backstage segment in Vickie's office prior to the match.
I'm hopeful that Santino Marella will do okay, because the last time the E did this kind of Cheerful Little Guy Beats the Odds angle was Eugene, and he got over like crazy. (What killed Eugene was the limitations of his gimmick, not the angle.)
