TVGB: "If there’s one thing I love about WWE, it’s the theatre of it all. And no, I don’t mean in a masterfully-crafted Shakespeare-worthy sense, I’m referring to the simple entertainment of watching ridiculously macho men in equally ridiculous costumes violently squabble over who they’ll punch in the face next. The roar of the crowd, the flash of lights, and the heavy metal music, all for something we all know is well rehearsed at the end of the day; it’s brilliant. As always, WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2011 delivers that in spades this year, nailing the essence of the event with spectacular entrances, crazy plots, and of course, a whole lot of wrestling. But does this year’s entry offer enough fresh content to keep it in the ring?"
