Finally Antonio Cesaro defends his United States Championship... and loses it, but I still don't see why it waited until this week and not at WrestleMania.
I can see their logic of there being a third match between Triple H and Brock Lesnar, as they have now won one each, but I was actually hoping that Lesnar attacking 3MB was a sign that he was moving on to somebody else instead.
There really didn't seem to be any fans of Dolph Ziggler in that crowd, I thought that there would at least be some on his side rather than that of Alberto Del Rio, but I guess that will probably be made up for by the UK crowd at next week's Raw.
I wonder if King's saying the "smaller" one of the Bellas won (when they used "Twin Magic" to swap places) was actually supposed to be said, judging from the silence from the other two and the fact that I thought that the WWE would want to stay away from any references suggesting that there are ways to tell them apart.
The Fandango/crowd interaction just didn't work for me, and in fact had me worried that they were going to use it to turn him face. Thankfully that wasn't the case though, and he showed that he is still a heel. I don't think it really accomplished anything though, other than acknowledging the "Fandangoing" craze last week on Raw and seemingly everywhere else since then, as Chris Jericho was nowhere to be seen.
It seemed that while the crowd did attempt to emulate last week's one, they only did so for the "Fandangoing" part and pretty poorly at that. I still thought that it would have taken a bit longer to get back to what we usually expect from Raw crowds though.
I loved Mark Henry appearing out of nowhere and taking out Sheamus in one shot before yelling "That's what I do!". I'd like to see him doing that to more people (rather than just Sheamus, as he did the same on SmackDown too).
Interesting way of having Punk respond to his loss to The Undertaker, this may be a way of giving Punk some time off. If it isn't though, I have no idea where he is going from here, so I look forward to finding out along with everyone else.
Ryback's "highlight reel" as Cena later put it seemed to go on to long to me, and probably didn't really need to be to get the message across, but it did have me thinking for a moment that he was suggesting that Cena was actually the one ordering The Shield to attack him, which I thought would have been a great way to finally turn Cena heel.
Obviously that would be ignoring the previous times that The Shield has attacked Cena too though. With The Shield coming down to attack Cena towards the end of the show, I was right when I expected Ryback to do nothing but watch on, but it was nice touch to also have the cautious glances from The Shield every so often, as if they weren't sure whether he would suddenly change his mind and help Cena.
