-Ross on Cena vs. Henry: "The John Cena-Mark Henry segment was text book stuff and I felt helped add some steam to the WWE Title bout at MITB this Sunday. Cena not being able to control Henry's size and girth adds to the intrigue come Sunday."

Shore’s Slant: Cena vs. Henry has been built better and stronger than Cena vs. Ryback ever was. Say what you want about the impending match, but the story has been well done by WWE.

-Ross on Brad Maddox: "Brad Maddox being named the new, RAW GM provides for some interesting creative opportunities in the future. I'm curious to see where this matter goes and the political agenda that Maddox' TV persona establishes. Brad certainly doesn't have the support of the announce trio based on their comments Monday night which could provide some entertaining interaction in future weeks. Maddox reminds me somewhat of the late, Eddie Gilbert. Maddox' upside is viable."

Shore’s Slant: Maddox has a staggering amount of charisma, so I'm interested to see what he can do in this role. I'm not a fan of the GM character as a whole, but if WWE is hell bent on having it, and it looks like they are, then Maddox is a wise choice.

-Ross on The Wyatt Family debut: "The overall build for the Wyatt Family from the beginning of the show including their entrance was well done. I'm curious to see what their next move will be. Smackdown? MITB? Next week on RAW? All of the above?"

Shore’s Slant: The build for the Wyatt Family was great, the introduction, while cool, was also a little flat. I think the moment was a bit of a victim of its own hype. Don't get me wrong, I'm not disparaging anything. It's just that after weeks of crazed promos, taking out Kane didn't come across as that big of a deal.
