Flair vs. Foley. Enough said. No way could anyone follow this match. Jeremy Borash nearly ruined it by mistakenly announcing it as a falls count anywhere match. Well, he's a tool, anyway.
The downside to that match was that Fourtune just had to get their heat back by beating Mick down after he won. Well, at least there wasn't any Smirnoff Ice in the house for Flair this time.
Mickie James. She gets to be the ref for the women's title match on Sunday, and serves notice on all 4 competitors that she's after the title (DUH!). Now I have a reason to tune in on Thursdays.
What didn't work:
Orlando Jordan & Eric Young as a tag team. We know Eric can play the goof so well. Jordan is trying to be a poor man's Goldust and failing. Badly. They're not going to last as a team.
The Shore. As they used to say in the 80's, gag me with a spoon. They signed Rob Eckos & Becky Bayless, two independent stars, to play parodies of characters from "Jersey Shore", which happens to be on Spike's step-sister network, MTV. The debut promo was DOA. I give them less than 6 months before they either get a gimmick change or they're gone.
"Firing" Abyss. Like, d'ya really think the man-monster is a goner? I don't.
