So why didn't we get Sandow & Rhodes vs Sin Cara & Mysterio?
They said Mysterio was unwell, either way, its Cara's fault.
Big Show cut a good promo, but I just don't care about his character at all. Also finding this 45 seconds thing a tease for some sort of cheap victory come hiac, like Ziggler cashing in.
Daniel Bryan backstage promo was pretty good, match with Show was alright if short, didn't mind the aftermath as it keeps Bryan and Kane legit.
CM Punk promo just didn't work I found, he didn't seem comfortable with it for some reason. I thought I would just say, bit of a hunch, but I see Punk losing this title soon, normally happens when they mention how many days someone has held the title.
Del Rio/Clay just seemed pointless, are they going to bother doing something with Brodus? The guy got over, he's fairly original/unique, he's enjoyable in the ring for a big guy, yet they just do the same shit with him. Give him a push for a mid card title, like the intercontinental championship or something.
PTP vs Ryder/Santino, another pointlessly predictable short match but it setup the bandddddddd which I'm all for, I find it hilarious how Jinder had his turban on dressed as a rockstar, seems like such an out of character thing to do lol
Ryback vs Otunga/Ziggler, again short and predictable.
Cesaro vs Gabriel was alright, kind of wish they gave gabriel the win to setup a feud between the two, oh well.
Kane vs Stryker, easy points for the fantasy league, cheers Stryker.
Miz TV was alright, probably carried this more then kofi, but seeing as this is like Kofi's first ever proper promo, hardly a surprise. Want kofi to win the belt.
Sheamus vs Barrett, get the impression the tease between these two will lead to a feud after HiaC.
Annoying that Rhodes Scholars vs Mysterio/Cara didn't take place, but the encore promo at the rock club was really random lol and it was funny how they pussied out of a fight against 2 nobody's.
Miz vs Kofi, good match but finished up with Miz cocking up, he's getting a name as bad as Cara in the ring, at least he can redeem it on the mic now and then. Reckon he'll drop the title now; hopefully. Personal thoughts aside, I hope he's alright as it looked proper nasty that kick lol.
Contract signing, loved the "egomaniac" comment, enjoyed the way it built up, I knew whatever happened Ryback would put his name on that contract no matter what ha, kind of pumped for this match at least its something different and its two superstars i enjoy. I just feel like they could have held this off a bit later. As for what will happen, possible interference from Lesnar (not like we've seen him for ages and would make sense with the whole heyman faction thing going on). Think this match could go either way, I just hope that Ryback either wins, or looks good if he loses; bitching him out in any possible way would be the worst result but I don't see that happening.
Typical RAW though, same predictable results with nothing new or innovative.
Crowd sucked tonight as well, didn't react to anything really.
