My Take: A
This was a phenomenal show this week. Tons of great action and it looks like they are starting to build up Godwinn as a babyface or tweaner of sorts which I wouldn't mind seeing. Not a fan of the slop man though but anyone against the corporation is aye ok in my book. More matches were announced for SummerSlam ans we got a great main event match between Lawler and Michaels.
