The Authority Hyped Hell in a Cell
I feel like I've ranted enough about The Authority opening Raw week in and week out, but it doesn't take away from the fact that it's cliche and overdone. Granted, they did a solid job of building up the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view (and God knows it needs all the hype it can get), but Triple H just had to turn it into a joke by plugging the WWE Network. It wasn't a completely pointless promo by The Authority, but it wasn't the right way to kick off the show.
Damien Mizdow and WWE Tag Team Champions Gold & Stardust def. United States Champion Sheamus and The Usos
We've every combination of this six-man tag team match in the last month or two that it has gotten to the point where I can't even enjoy the action. All six competitors worked hard, but it's the same match every week and it's grown tiresome. If nothing else, Mizdow's win was a pleasant surprise and The Miz's reaction on commentary on priceless. Mizdow is awesome (no pun intended) in the role, but I'm sure a split is coming sooner rather than later.
