|"I say we do this publicly in the ring." - Otunga|

|Watch for the chair falling after Kofi's pyro|
|"I take that Rosetta Stone just so I can talk to Alberto." - JBL|
Sheamus vs Antonio Cesaro
I didn't like the ending angle here as it just happened too late. If they would have did this last week it might have added to the show, but here they just kind of threw it in without much story to it.
Overall thoughts: I'm glad this one is over. WWE go-home shows have been really weak lately and this was no different. All of the heels looked like weaklings which didn't exactly hype me for the PPV. The last two matches were fine but nothing we haven't seen done better this week. They went through a couple of angles here in no time at all with no build, making me wonder what they have been doing the previous weeks. Overall, I'd say skip this one. It was a long and mostly boring show.
Stay Tuned for TLC on Sunday, Saturday Morning Slam on Saturday and Nonito Donaire vs Jorge Arce on Saturday!
