This match ended up being a ton of fun. The fun was mostly a result of the booking of the Punk/Orton feud and the stuff at the end with Cena, Punk, and Morrison. Actually, Morrison provided a lot of fun throughout the match. In fact, they really seemed to be trying to portray Morrison as a main eventer on this show, and I’m not sure why they lost faith in him shortly after this. I don’t think he could have ever been the guy in the WWE, but he should be a valuable member of their roster. Anyway, I enjoyed this match a great deal, and I think you should all definitely watch it.
Match Rating: ***3/4
