CM Punk vs. Curtis Axel just proved how much Axel is a non-factor without Paul Heyman. In fact, he was struggling to be relevant even with Heyman, and now it will be much harder. He has no charisma, and repackaging is not an option, since we are already seeing a repackaged version now. He should drop the title immediately, because since he won it in June, it has not been revitalized. Since Big E. Langston has shifted to the US title picture, the only two logical options would be either Dolph Ziggler or a returning RVD, since he has a history with Heyman and it can be tied into a storyline.
R-Truth/Usos vs. 3MB was a very good match. It just goes to show how exciting the Usos are and how they should be the go-to tag team of the division after the Rhodes angle ends. R-Truth had some hometown pops, and the match had some thrilling action throughout. R-Truth should continue to be a solid midcarder, and have more segments selling the WWE merchandise. I think he's found his niche—that segment on Raw was hilarious.
Daniel Bryan vs. Luke Harper had a purpose to it, which was to extend the feud between CM Punk/Daniel Bryan and the Wyatt Family. The disqualification finish was appropriate, as well as the attack on Bryan afterwards that led to Punk making the save. This feud looks to be developing well, and should be a good match at Surivivor Series.
