The Gauntlet Match (specifically the Seth Rollins vs. John Cena portion) was so good. The fact that WWE dedicated so much time to just Rollins vs. Cena alone was great. WWE made the right call in how they booked RAW this week; they put the best stuff early on in the show then put the less interesting stuff in the second and third hours of the show (ratings show that viewership drops off significantly in the second and third hours of RAW).

They did such an excellent job of building Seth Rollins up and making it seem like they have big plans for him in the future. Seth has never been more over as a face than he was in that Gauntlet Match.

Roman vs Seth part and Cena vs Seth was top notch. Thought it slowed a little for Seth vs Elias and Elias vs Finn but still good. Then it got great again with everything featuring Miz ,Finn and Braun.

I will say the fact Braun won means there is 1000% chance he doesn't win at the PPV. Same for Seth, he was booked so strong he isn't winning. Well they could do a surprise booking, but historically the ones who win big on raw lose at the supershow.

Like most I already assumed Roman was winning EC, but the fact Roman lost first makes me doubly think he's going over.
