The go-home edition for Money In The Bank was nothing special. Instead of going into extreme detail about last night’s happenings, I will introduce “Quick Thoughts,” where I will just bullet point my thoughts and analysis. Without further ado, here are my “Quick Thoughts” on Monday Night Raw.

John Cena really needs to cut out the cute promos. I will be honest. The “rip off his face and replace it with his butt”  and the “clan known as NNNNNN” lines made me laugh, but after all of the crap that Cena has gone through, why be funny?

Michael Cole really looks like a middle school principal when he steps up to the GM podium. I am waiting for him to give a Superstar a demerit.

Alicia Fox wonders why he she gets no respect. It’s because she is awful in the ring. Now you can pay $40 to see her again this Sunday when she defends her title against Eve!

The Usos/Hart Dynasty match was extremely predictable. This feud, if you can call it that, has lost all momentum.

Maryse is gorgeous. John Morrison tries to be Cena with his hokey promos, but they never sound good. His deadpan heel delivery was much better.

I am not going to even go into the “Santino’s Bunch” stuff.

Randy Orton v. Edge is always a solid match (minus Over The Limit). It is what happened afterwards that is worth talking about. Chris Jericho gives Edge the Codebreaker. then eats an RKO. Evan Bourne blindsides Orton and goes for the Shooting Star Press, but Orton counters it into a Super RKO. There aren’t many things these days that make me shout “OH MY GOD” at the top of my lungs and keep my mouth open for a good minute. That’s what I did here.

I like the Miz’s new serious side. His cocky bit is great, so this only makes him greater. Or more awesome.

Miz’s attack on Mark Henry would have been better if A) the laptop hadn’t mysteriously disappeared and B) the plastic garbage can hadn’t mysteriously appeared.

Florence Henderson. The Regal Bunch? Moving on.

News flash, Edge: Only Randy Orton hears voices in his head. You’re not Randy Orton. I was waiting for Edge to say “they counsel me, they understand, they talk to me.” Good thing he didn’t.

Nexus has been beating up people all night. Tarver’s face after they took out Yoshi Tatsu was f*cking freaky.

It takes only a flinch for Sheamus to run like a little baby? Talk about change of heart (or diapers for that matter).

It makes sense for Nexus to go over. It was 6-on-1 after all.

Yes, Michael Cole, we have seen handicap matches like this before. Even bigger ones! Remember that one time when Orton and Cena went up against the entire Raw roster? And didn’t Mr. Kennedy face the ECW roster on his own?

Sheamus didn’t hit one person with his chair. I’m just glad he didn’t hit Cena. I liked how the show went off the air.

This has been “Quick Thoughts.” Look for these in the future.

I don’t have much to say about tonight’s Superstars, so I am going to just give quick results. I will, however, have my normal comprehensive recap of Smackdown on Saturday. Be sure to check back frequently for new content.

WWE Superstars, as I have said time and time again, is hit or miss. Last night was a marginal hit. We got to see the in-ring debut of a intriguing tag team, a solid singles match, and a monumental victory. Expect everything? I guess that means both good and bad. Let’s take a look.

WWE Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston (with Michael McGillicutty) v. Trent Baretta (with Caylen Croft)

The Dudebusters haven’t been turning heads as a team, so why not give them a shot to show what they can do individually? Baretta and Croft are both very talented workers; perhaps a singles run for each would be better suited. Anyways, Baretta held his own against Kingston and matched him spot for spot. I especially like the ending. Baretta goes for the crossbody, but Kofi ducks and Baretta bounces off the rope. Kingston hits the Boom Drop and sets up for Trouble In Paradise and the victory. Usually, the first attempt to hit TIP is avoided and reversed, but having Baretta take it on the chin makes sense. It shows Baretta’s lack of experience and unfamiliarity with Kingston not to duck out of the way. Storytelling is a huge plus whenever it goes right. This match had it in bunches and I hope to see these two fight again soon.

Yoshi Tatsu v. Primo

Oh. My. Goodness. PRIMO WON?!?! WOW!!!!! Moving on.

Goldust & Mark Henry v. The Usos (with Tamina)

It if Goldust and Tatsu are the “Golden Yoshi,” are Henry and Goldust “The World’s Strongest Gold?” That was lame, but I can’t be on all the time. Also, if Goldust ever formed a team with Ted DiBiase, I have the perfect name: “Cash 4 Gold.” But I digress. This was the Usos’ in-ring debut and they definitely impressed. Jey and Jimmy have the skills to pay the bills and will make waves in the WWE. Goldust and Henry are two of the WWE’s best enhancement talents and did their jobs adequately. I am afraid that the Usos will go the way of Deuce & Domino. Let me explain. They make a huge impact, win the titles, hold them for a bit, lose them, struggle to get them back, and then disappear. It’s funny considering Deuce is related to the Usos (Tamina is his sister). Stay tuned.
