The first segment where we saw the exchange between AJ Styles and Bully Ray was a bit above average, but I still cringe at times when AJ Styles grabs a mic. He has amazing talent in the ring, but his mic work is mainly what holds him down from being a targeted guy for the WWE. He tried to have an edge with his verbal war with Bully. It helped a little, but not enough. Thankfully, his talent compensates for most of the lackluster mic work.
This also was a good spot for Mr. Anderson to return. It will free up the world title scene more, and wean Bully out of it. Anderson may simply benefit short-term from this feud with Bully, but at least they will most likely create a feud that sparks the interest of the fans.
Brooke/Gail Kim (w/Lei'D Tapa) vs. ODB/Velvet Sky was a good way to showcase the Knockouts, but also showed the lack of depth in the division. In other words, what you saw is pretty much what TNA has. That's it. Lei'D Tapa is a good addition to the list, but aligning herself with Gail Kim may be a bad idea.
For weeks, she came down and interfered in matches, claiming the it was her island. Now, she takes a back seat in Kim's ride, and is supposed to ascend in the ranks? Not quite. Unless she turns babyface soon, which most likely will not happen, her stock will slowly decease associating with Kim.
