Neville def. Curtis Axel
This was essentially the same match we saw from the two on last week's Monday Raw, and while it was well-wrestled and there wasn't anything technically wrong with it, I remain disappointed that not much if anything (other than his newly grown facial hair) is different about Neville. His four month absence could have been a blessing in disguise, but rather he's back to where he was prior to getting injured: on Superstars. Here's hoping it won't be long before Creative finds him something substantial for him to do.
The Dudley Boyz def. Sin Cara and Jack Swagger
I usually enjoy The Dudley Boyz' matches, but this bout was a total dud. Cara and Swagger had next to no chemistry as a tag team, and the crowd sat on their hands as a result. It didn't help that it dragged on unnecessarily long, too. I was worried The Dudley Boyz would eat another meaningless loss here to a makeshift tag team match, but thankfully that didn't happen and they won.
I was hoping we would get more storyline progression on these second-tier shows now that the Brand Split is back, but that has yet to be the case. This wasn't an awful episode by any means, but the two matches personally put me to sleep, so I wouldn't waste your time with it and would instead hold out hope for a better show next week.
