( Match 1 ) - 4/10 No way Kingston would tap out to Ezekiel Jackson
( Match 2 ) - 9/10 im pretty sure Zack would win, i mean this guy has that much talent we just dont get to see it.
( Match 3 ) - 0/10 why does a rookie deserve a shot at a championship
( Match 4 ) - 2/10 what?! Miz doesnt win the US Title by being pinned by Bourne? Really? Really? Really?!
( Match 5 ) - 5/10 The Usos? oh yeah that shows they mean business
( Main Event ) - 5/10 I think Angle vs. Cena wouldnt have been just as good, no better.
once again your ratings are dropping. My Advice: Not everybody deserves a championship match, especially not a championship

( tournament 2 ) 4/10 That torture rack is made to look a lot greater painful than it rather is ( tournament 3 ) 0/10 considering which you place this, i choose to work out Vladimir Kozlov(c) vs. Evan Bourne ( tournament 4 ) 5/10 Theres a reason Sin Cara has been out of action, and it wasnt the powerbomb on the ladder ( important journey ) 9/10 Sheamus could kill Jericho, reliable important journey nonetheless -----usual: 4/10 attempt to function one greater tournament, i think of that could desire to strengthen issues, try putting Eric youthful right into a tournament i desire him and human beings seem to desire him too. word to the smart
