Lots of wrestling tonight!

The main event was set up by an earlier promo between John Cena and Alberto Del Rio, who were ready to get their rematch for the World Heavyweight Championship out of the way before Vickie Guerrero prevented it. Continuity struck as Del Rio remembered that he had a grudge against Vickie too, so he backed up "Little Juanito" in his insults of her. This led to Del Rio vs. the Great Khali, and Cena vs. The Ryback. Del Rio beat Khali via the cross armbreaker, while Cena beat The Ryback with the AA. The Ryback finally seems to have embraced the Goldberg chants, as he hit both a spear and the Jackhammer during the match. Del Rio attacked Cena after the main event match, but was fought off.

In other matches, the Usos and R-Truth defeated 3MB via the Little Jimmy on Jinder, AJ and Tamina beat the Funkadactyls via Black Widow on Cameron, CM Punk defeated Curtis Axel with the GTS despite a teased run-in by the Wyatt Family, and Daniel Bryan beat Luke Harper via DQ when Rowan interfered during the YES!lock, though CM Punk made the save from the subsequent beatdown.

This has been the Luke Harper Showcase Week, apparently. He gets a long match against Punk on Raw, a long match against Bryan on Smackdown, and on this week's NXT he had a long main event match against Kassius Ohno, in what might have been the final WWE match for Ohno (nee Chris Hero) if the dirtsheet reports are to be believed. It does look like they have something in Harper though, and putting him in with Bryan and Punk to work long matches is certainly a good way to showcase that.

Of course, it also doesn't say too much about Erick Rowan that he doesn't get trusted with any singles matches.

Ohno/Hero was indeed released Friday and is already being advertised for PWG's December show.

An absolute shame. He's an excellent wrestler - he had some great crowd support after his sorta kinda face turn in NXT. His interactions with William Regal were quite good.

...on a roll!

Bad news to fans who wanted to see Chris Hero succeed in WWE but good news to fans who want to see him wrestle around the indies. Unfortunately wrestling ability & even popularity take a back seat in WWE. What they care about is how they're going to utilize someone as a character in their storylines & apparently they didn't have a role for him, simple as that. Including developmental, they have an entire roster of people who wouldn't last 3 shows in a wrestling promotion as their top *superstars* and an equally entire roster of nuclear hot wrestlers who don't get 3 minutes of tv time. That's just Vince's way and it's never going to change.

I have no idea what this even means. John Cena, Randy Orton, CM Punk and Daniel Bryan wouldn't last 3 nights in a wrestling promotion? They're in one now, with way more travel and high-pressure performing than the indies.

Hero was told to get in shape and tone up by the bosses and he pretty much ignored them. That's why he was pulled from NXT all summer and that's why he's gone now. In truth he never really clicked in NXT, Regal feud aside, and if you're going to completely ignore advice from your employer you'd better have more to offer than a semi-decent feud with a part-time commentator.

Harper is pretty good. He was in with two of the best, but those were two good matches in two days. At the very least I must personally apologize to him for lumping him in with Rowan. They can join the list of Big Guy Tag Teams Where One Is Good While The Other Isn't.
