Neville def. Viktor
It's a shame that even after all this time, Neville remains directionless. If there is going to be a multi-man match at WrestleMania 32 as has been reported, he should definitely be a part of it. It'd at least be better than throwing him in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. As for the match, it was fine for what it was, though it didn't last long at all. I don't care about The Ascension and I care even less about them as singles competitors, so perhaps that was for the better. If nothing else, it was something new and not a match we've seen countless times before (i.e. Jack Swagger vs. Fandango), so I appreciated that.
Natalya def. Summer Rae
Remember when Summer (allegedly) broke Natalya's nose on Total Divas two years ago? Wait, I'm the only one who still watches that show? Never mind then. At any rate, I'm loving the renewed focus on Summer. She's a better wrestler than some people give her credit for and she showcased her skills against the always excellent Natalya in this match. I was even happier they were given a decent amount of time to produce the entertaining match they were capable of, aside from one awkward spot toward the end. I figured Summer's recent wins would lead to another victory for her here, but no such luck. Hopefully it isn't long before we see both of these women resurface on WWE TV.
Neville vs. Viktor was short-lived and wasn't anything out of the ordinary, but it's hard to complain given it was relatively fresh. The women's match, on the other hand, was what really impressed me the most and is definitely worth checking out, especially if you're not currently sold on Summer Rae. As for the Raw replays, the Mr. McMahon-Undertaker segment was a waste, but you might find yourself enjoying watching Y2AJ vs. The New Day back again.
