– Oppan Gangnam Style! I still don’t like that song, but the reference was cool.
– Shout-outs to Barack Obama, still the President of the United States.

– Wade Barrett and Sheamus threw DOWN tonight.
– Also, was it me…or was this crowd just BANANAS? The crowd was amazing. Just don’t expect Wrestlemania to ever end up in the UK. EVER.
– Shoutouts to Matt Striker. Great rag-doll.
– Show on commentary with Michael Cole was amazing. AMAZING. Oh…and the Miz was good too.
– R-Truth vs. Slater wasn’t the most amazing match that I have ever seen. I’m not completely positive that it should have really been on this show juxtaposed with the Barrett/Sheamus match. It was a fun match, but I’m completely confused about the whole match in general.
