Here's i felt about it, my mini breakdown/rating.

Jericho vs Ziggler: 3/5. Overall very solid, but nothing really stuck out. A good opener though.

Bryan vs Kane: 2.5/5. Felt pretty flat in comparison to the previous match. On its own it left nothing to remember it by but it wasn't awful, and thats a plus since these two don't seem to have any chemistry.

Mysterio vs Miz: 3/5. Good match, but felt too short. Nice variety of moves, relatively back and forth. Miz is very underrated in the ring.

Del Rio vs Sheamus: 3/5. It was phsysical, it was a brawl, and even though the angle behind the match left them with no hype, they delivered a match that made it seem like the rivalry was real. If any guy on the roster should have Superman-like comebacks, its Sheamus. He looks tough as nails, and for a power based wrestler, he has a very nice variety of moves. Odd finish, but it wasn't predictable at all. Good match.

Prime Time Playas vs Kofi/Truth: 2/5.
Pretty average match. Pretty much just a filler to cool the crowd. Wasn't awful though despite Kofi's generic-ness. He's a good wrestler, just no personality. PTP has a lot of potential as a team and hopefully they don't get the Cryme Tyme treatment of being the best, yet rewarded with nothing.

Big Show vs Cena vs Punk: 3/5.
Better than i anticipated. Stayed pretty active throughout. Nothing to remember the match for, but it wasn't boring so that's a plus.

Triple H vs Brock Lesnar: 3/5.
Decent brawl, almost a squash in favor of Brock though. Nothing to remember about it really. Odd, abrupt ending as well.

Overall PPV rating: 3/5.
No match was great, but most were at least good. Best match probably goes to Jericho/Ziggler. Other matches may have been more physical or had more story behind it, but this one had the most enjoyment behind it. Miz/Mysterio was close but it was just too short.

See Longshot's post. Pretty accurate rating of the show.

Good PPV but nothing classic.

What does it mean for a wrestler to "get over"?

To get over with fans, whether they cheer or boo you the most important thing for a wrestler is to "get over" with the fans, you want them to care enough about you to cheer or boo. It's how they make their money & how they determine who gets where in the company.

When i asked if Ziggler "got over" despite the loss, i was asking if he was made to look weak or inferior to jericho durring the match, and if he still had momentum after his loss at SS.

I was surprised he lost, i figured this was the start of a giant push.

Ziggler didn't lose his MITB briefcase so it's not a huge downgrade to his push.

Like I mentioned after the match, they might set up a rematch where Ziggler's briefcase and Jericho's contract is on the line.

Ziggler would win the rematch. Jericho would leave the WWE for a bit while he goes on tour.

Anyway, Raw is on in a couple of hours. We'll see the aftermath of each angle.

Zigler vs Jericho rematch next on Raw. Ziggler's briefcase on the line. Jericho's Raw contract on the line.

I think they'll do a Briefcase vs Loser Leaves Town match.
Jericho wins, he gets the briefcase (which won't happen)
Jericho loses, he leaves Raw (actually touring with band)

Good Call
