Overall, a pretty decent episode of Raw. The first three matches were awesome until their endings. I would have like to see Ziggler pick up a victory over Rollins, with the help of Ambrose. The battle royal was half decent. I liked how Bo Dallas made it to the final 3 wrestlers. The highlight of the show was watching Vicky Guerrero get puked on by Stephanie McMahon. It reminded of a segment from the Attitude Era and definitely pushed the limits of the PG rating. The stretcher match was fun but if Cena wins MITB, I will consider leaving the wrestling business forever.
