It's that time of the week again, folks. Here is our post-show 'Best and Worst' analysis. This was definitely an interesting go-home show, heading into Elimination Chamber. What did we think of this week's episode overall?

Well, we changed our opinion midway. While the prospect of the longest match in WWE history seemed tiresome at first, the performers and the creative team did manage to tell a great story through the match. The third hour did not feel as important as the first two.

What did you guys think of the change in format, readers? Let us know in the comments section.

Here's our own take on the events that transpired during the show.


#1 Best: Changing the usual format

There was no Kurt Angle promo to start the show!

We always commend WWE when they think outside the box. This was one such week, where they decided to break the mold, and focus on the in-ring action over what has come to be known as 'sports entertainment'. We know not everyone was a fan of this format. However, it was a welcome change of pace and a step in the right direction, we felt.

Kurt Angle has not been the best promo recently and to watch him flubbing his lines can be a tad embarrassing. He was not featured in this week's show, and that's okay, because he does not always need to be featured. The show felt like a breath of fresh air.
