The many rambles of a Scottish Games Programmer, Piper, and 'rasslin fan.
A great PPV by WWE, easily the best since MITB.
Some quick thoughts:
- Dolph Ziggler is awesome. Hope he gets bumped up the card soon. A strong “Perfect-like” performance in the Rumble perhaps?
- Zack Ryder should have won the title last night, don’t think he will find as perfect a crowd as last night for a while. I just hope they notice how over he really is/
- Poor JoMo… Last year had one the best ladder matches I’ve ever seen with Sheamus. Thought for sure he would get a World title run this year. If this is his last hurah at least he is making Ziggler look a million bucks. Gonna have to make it happen in WWE ‘12.
- Hell of a finish for Eve to take, she continues to impress. Does however feel like the division needs something new, really just treading water till Kharmageddon!
- Poor Sin Cara… This guy just isn’t getting any breaks. No Wrestlemania in his debut year sucks. At this rate Mysterio will be back and injured again by the time Cara returns. They may never get the dream feud…
- Cody Rhodes is great, love how Orton was testing the crowds devotion to him, he knows how important the next couple of months will be for Cody. Cody needs to win the WWE title soon and get rid of the spinner as well!
- Wade Barrett will be the first UK World Champion at this rate. The man oozes smug thug. Man it hurts not being able to say that about Drew McIntyre….
- Show’s elbow was dare-I-say-it better than Punk’s in his match. Great spot and more heat goes on the Henry train. Was very much expecting a Kane/Undertaker return/tease of some kind. Will be interesting how they get to TLC. However a chairs match will not be as cool as those two in a tables or ladder match!
- CM Punk - NEEEEEEEEEEW WWE Champion. As announced by Howard Finkle, at the 25th Survivor Series. In Madison Square Garden. Does it get any better?
- Feels like they could go many ways, felt like a story end/new begining. A couple of months defences against Ziggler/Swagger while they re-build del Rio into the killer he was last year would be awesome, however I can see this just being the middle of del Rio and Punk’s feud. Hopefully the title doesn’t change hands for the 11th time this year!
- Rock really is the most charismatic man in sports entertainment. Really doesn’t need saying but he is. Just needs to turn his head to get 20,000 people behind him. It’s kinda scary.
- He was crisp as ever, faster at 39 than at 29, and looked absolutely huge. Didn’t even seem to miss a beat. Even broke out La Magistral!
- It very much felt like a childhood flashback, loved even the little things like how his selling/woozy walk away after a punch is as ridiculous as ever.
- Truth really is great as the crazy heel. Has a something heels have lacked in WWE in a while.
- Miz is still tone/rhythm deaf as ever, but would we have him any other way? I bet he had a good day, sold out MSG and wrestled The Rock, easily his biggest inspiration!
- After a few weeks of feeling super down on WWE (RAW mostly) It suddenly feels like the next few months to Wrestlemania are going to be good. Good work WWE!
