I thought 1,001 would have been a great show in the two hour format, and tonight would have been a good show. They're killing the product by making it 3 hours. I just felt obligated to watch it and feel like an informed wrestling fan. I enjoyed Punk/Rey, Sandow beating down Brodus, and Cena/Bryan (plus Punk ripping on Lawler afterwards). The vast majority of the three hours was just there.

I agree that Lawler is horrible. I never really noticed that much until a few episodes ago. Now I know what everyone's been complaining about. I always laugh at the inevitable "Lawler's drunk" post in the Raw thread but now I get it.
My biggest problem is AJ's almost deliberate overacting and her complete inability to stand still and keep her head straight while talking. It's painful to watch. She wouldn't be that bad of a GM if she acted more natural and didn't almost give herself whiplash at a moments notice.

It still feels the same to me when it was RAW "supershow" just an hour longer and much, much more filler like recaps. Plus the whole social networking thing on RAW now-a-days is just so forced and annoying and the theme song sounds like the guy isn't even fucking trying. But CM Punk's slow turn and super pissed off Daniel Bryan is keeping me watching.
I've been liking the show. We get a really good match each week, so I'm happy.
The only downsides are the announcing (but that's been going on for a LONG time) and the fact that AJ acts like a heel GM (using her power to settle vendettas) but we're supposed to cheer her because she's cute. Stupid parts of an otherwise good show.
