WWE Raw 5/10/10

1. Chris Jericho vs. David Hart Smith - 3
2. R-Truth vs. William Regal - 0
3. Evan Bourne vs. Zach Ryder - 3
4. Tyson Kidd vs. The Miz - 1
5. NXT rookies vs. John Morrison, Goldust, Yoshi Tatsu, and Santino Marella - 5
6. Batista vs. Mark Henry - 2
7. Randy Orton vs. Edge and Ted DiBiase - Handicap Match - 4

Nothing on this episode scored in the recommended category. Only thing I enjoyed I properly overrated a touch, but the match with the NXT guys was entertaining: the Otunga and Tatsu section, Morrison was on, and Danielson getting his first win to a big crowd pop all were to my liking. Not that it was without its flaws, Gabriel running in stone-faced willingly right into armdrags was the definition of amateur. The main, even though the live crowd likes DiBiase about as much as anal fissures, had the show's best in-ring storytelling and Orton's selling was superb as always and this was one of his first performances in his new face role that felt right.
