Luke Harper def. Jack Swagger
It was hilarious hearing the Canadian crowd chant "We the People" for Swagger despite it being American-oriented. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the match. Harper and Swagger aren't your typical "big guys," but they are of larger build and they created a chemistry together that made for a very solid match. Both guys were able to get in their offense and the ending with Harper hitting his vicious boot and clothesline combination out of nowhere was awesome. Whether it's as a singles competitor or as a tag team guy, I'm really hoping WWE starts doing something with him soon.
The Lucha Dragons def. Los Matadores
This was basically the same match we saw on SmackDown this week, but it was still very fun. Their similar styles made for an enjoyable matchup and Los Matadores actually looked like equals for once. Their gimmick still sucks beyond belief, but make no mistake about it: their in-ring work is excellent and this match was proof of that. The right team went over and the crowd was hot for the Dragons and everything they did here.
You can thank the electric Canadian crowd from Monday's Raw for making this show more entertaining than usual. They were receptive to both matches as they should have been because they felt fresh and the in-ring action was quality, none of that Fandango vs. Adam Rose or Stardust vs. R-Truth garbage. Neither match is must-see or anything like that, but if you take the time to tune in (and sit through the enjoyable Raw recaps), you won't regret you did.
