Winner- Cesaro ***1/2 ( This was a really enjoyable opener, as the three way portion of the match was incredibly fun and the Cesaro/RVD portion was well executed. Cesaro continues to lo0ok fantastic and I hope they give him a feud he can really sink his teeth into.)

Daniel Bryan is getting his shoulder worked on by the trainer when Stephanie McMahon appears. Stephanie says it’s her job to look out for the well-being of her superstars and she can’t control Kane. Stephanie says she’s concerned for the ones Bryan loves that will watch him get destroyed and offers him the chance to surrender the title. Bryan tells her he’s walking out somehow with the championship. Stephanie tells him tonight, Bryan is walking out tonight Kane’s bitch.

Winner- Alexander Rusev * ( Truth got way too much offense for what was suppoised to be a dominant squash for Rusev. His style is typical big man stuff but Lana looks like she has star potential at least. )

Evolution claims that they have massive egos but they are well deserved. You have to adapt or perish and tonight, the Shield will parish.

Winner and Still WWE Diva’s Champion- Paige *1/2 ( Snuka has the look and build to be dominant women’s wrestler but she is still sloppy and looks awkward doing some of her stuff. I keep hearing nothing but great things about Paige but the women she has to work with right now aren’t going to allow us to see her total ability unfortunately. )

The 411: This was a decent follow up show to Wrestlemania. We are beginning to see the emergence of guys like Cesaro and Barrett who will likely dominate the mid card heading into the summer and guys like Bray Wyatt and the Shield has all the momentum in the world right now. The Shield/Evolution match is excellent and the main event is a good time, especially for those who enjoy the Attitude Era main event style. This show is worth a look.
 
Final Score:  7.0   [ Good ]  legend
