The Union Jacks, composed of Drew McIntyre and Heath Slater, are 3 Man Band. They are included in this list because not only was the match satisfying, 3MB won a match. Yes, 3MB were victorious. And the English crowd loved them. A.J. Lee is a talented wrestler and brings a noteworthy submission game to the table against her opponents. Natalya is always a tough match for anyone in the division, and a feud such as this one should continue. Ultimately, it may lead to Tamina (who interfered in the match) taking the reigns and dealing with Natalya herself. Tyson Kidd finds himself on the list twice this week, and the workhorse deserves the credit after putting in the work after all these years. This mid-card feud with Fandango stems from the beef these two have on WWE’s Total Divas, and they are quite a pairing in terms of in-ring performance. A solid tag team bout to open up the SmackDown broadcast in the United Kingdom, and Harper & Rowan continuing their mean streak. Not sure if burying The Usos was a good idea, yet The Wyatt Family are enduring a big push at the moment, so it is understandable that everyone becomes a commodity to build them as destructive heels. It was a treat to see two smaller competitors, like Gabriel and Kidd work a match that we do not see to often anymore, with real good technical wrestling spots. It was odd that two faces were being matched up together, although Kidd’s reaction when he lost the match hints at a possible heel turn – with no reason for him to lose so quickly upon his return. Nothing we have not seen before from this duo in action, with Axel retaining his title. It is not like Dolph Ziggler will have a lengthily feud with the third-generation superstar, but at least the top seller in the company is getting bigger matches as of late. Still, he is not winning them. Even if the post-fight antics involving Big Show was the best part about Raw’s opening segment, the WWE Tag Team champions took on the face of the company in a match made by Vickie Guerrero to kick off Monday night’s program in England. The match resulted in Orton being counted out and chokeslammed through the announce table. Raw’s main event was the evening’s third handicap match, and much to the happiness of the English crowd, it was a great offering from all of the combatants involved. The ending was incredible, with The Shield and The Wyatt Family coming to blows as the crowd erupted. There is no point in explaining how good Punk and Bryan work together, since their combined talents are self-explanatory after watching them work. After teaming together for the second time in one week, the goal is for Punk and Bryan to gain momentum for their tag team match at Survivor Series – or because the creative team have them outside of the loop when it comes to the main event picture. Nevertheless, they escaped the wrath of The Wyatt Family, and it is interesting that both Ryback and Axel consider themselves as “former” Paul Heyman guys going into this contest. What we learned from this match is that the WWE Universe deserves Antonio Cesaro to make a title run and compete against John Cena for as long as possible. The two superstars delivered when they were matched up against one another in this contest, and although The Real Americans are as good as they are going to get at the moment, Cena and Cesaro’s chemistry is extremely on point.
