Seth Rollins Interrupted Dean Ambrose
These two have done all they possibly could to build their feud over the last five months, but their verbal exchanges continue to entertain. Ambrose is excellent when he's serious (why so serious?) and not silly, and thus his promo here was well done. Rollins has never been the strongest mic worker, but he's improved immensely since his heel turn in June and his response to Ambrose was good. Usually I'd prefer in-ring action kicking off the show over a talking segment, but this was an effective way of giving their feud one final push going into Hell in a Cell.
The Miz and Damien Mizdow def. Los Matadores
Miz and Sandow have developed awesome (no pun intended) chemistry together since they initially joined forces in August and I really like the idea of them forming a tag team. As big of a Mizfit as I am, virtually no one cares about his current feud with Sheamus and he's better off sharing the spotlight with Sandow. This was a fine enough match to give Miz some momentum before he contends for the United States Championship on Sunday, but it's hard to care about anything involving Los Matadores. Sandow locking in the Figure Four Leg Lock at ringside while Miz did it in the ring was hilarious, though.
