Christian Hosted 'The Peep Show' with Chris Jericho (Kickoff Show)
It's been many months since we last saw Christian on WWE TV, so it was good to have him back even if it was in a non-wrestling role. Speaking of such, the commentators made it sound like his in-ring days aren't over yet, so that was encouraging. The interaction between Jericho and Christian was enjoyable and a nice nod to their history together from a decade ago. Randy Orton butchered a few of his lines, but he held his own for the most part. It wasn't a home run of a segment, but it was necessary in providing some last minute build for the Orton-Jericho match for later on in the night. It was also an improvement over any other random match we could have gotten instead.
Gold and Stardust def. The Usos to Win the WWE Tag Team Champions
On one hand, The Usos kicking off pay-per-views is a smart move in that it kicks off the night on a high note. On the other hand, every subsequent match has the tough task of following it. Gold and Stardust are a freaky duo, there's no doubt about it, but I think their ability to have a great match is often forgotten due to their gimmick. And then there's The Usos, who are always incredible. Put them together and you have yourself a very fun opener. This was the match I was hoping from these two teams months ago and we finally got it. I can't say I'm thrilled with the title change, but as long it leads to Goldust turning on Stardust and Cody Rhodes back to being himself down the line, I'm content.
