The Shield vs. The Rebels was an interesting concept, that actually benefited some participants of the 'Rebel' group. Particularly, Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler and RVD. These three actually gained a considerable advantage over the Shield for a moment, with RVD coming close to defeating them. Triple H coming out and stopping the match was done, I suppose, to keep some balance and not make Raw and SmackDown seem tyrannical, but it was not necessary. However, Michael Cole did do a good job highlighting the "coincidences."

Ultimately, the saving grace of the Wyatt Family living up to the hype and time spent with all of those vignettes would be a feud with CM Punk. This Heyman angle is not going to last forever, so we must see those two commence a feud in the near future. If we kill the rumors of Austin returning at WM XXX, a CM Punk vs. Bray Wyatt match would be a treat to see.
Alberto Del Rio vs. R-Truth... happened.
Daniel Bryan/Usos vs. The Shield was a good match. Great way to keep the Usos as a credible tag team, and Bryan getting advantage leading into Battleground. The Shield has enough momentum in this current feud involving the McMahons that a loss is not very crucial, but it actually helped the momentum of both Bryan and the Usos. Overall, the Shield can afford putting people over now more than ever, because they are being used as Triple H's and Stephanie McMahon's henchmen, which gives them a prominent role.
Sound off with your thoughts.
