Just a post on the bash from last night, in case any other suckers still watches WWE like me
1. What was good
Rey-Jericho was excellent. Good swerve with the two masks, I was a little ticked that the IC title changed hands yet again, but I guess this is the new era of WWE, where title reigns are short.
CM Punk heel turn- I am really enjoying how they are turning punk heel. It’s been well handled and his character has been really developed. Not only that, but they’ve use this turn to put several younger guys over (like morrision). Note to Triple H- you can lose clean and still make the other guy look good along with you, Punk is living proof. Also a really good match with a good ending to continue the fued.
Tag match- Cool match, awesome ending for me as a Jericho and edge mark. I hope they keep this tag team together for a bit and let them cut promo’s, should be awesome. Good place to use Jericho and edge by the WWE while the smackdown title hunt revolves around hardy and punk. They are both great heels and now they have an excuse to be on both shows for a bit before somehow splitting the titles.
ECW scramble was good, but a little to hectic.
Orton keeping the title is very good, though how he did it irked me.
2. Things I didn’t like/ didn’t understand-
The miz being absolutely buried in a 5 minute match- I don’t get this one. You let the kid talk for 2 months, he builds up some decent heel heat, and then you squash him with no offense in a five minute match?
Listen, I’m not advocating that he should have been put over, the result was fine. But why not let him get some sort of heel offense/ cheap tricks in? They had 2 really good months of build up for the guy, and then he looks like dog poo in a squash match….if you let him have a decent match, then you set him up as a good mid card heel while cena still gets the pop from ending his angle…I didn’t get this one, mabey they will throw out a swerve on raw tonight.
Orton once again being made to look weak- Listen WWE, we get it. Hunter is your top performer on RAW. Would it kill him to have a good match and put someone over once in awhile?
Not only that, but this tired mantra of “if hunter loses, it’s a cheap finish, and he will immediately destroy his opponent seconds after the loss” is making ortona nd legacy look like jokes as a stable and heels.
Also, it once again continues a tired storyline, I am really trying to get into this fued WWE, but how many times can hunter make Orton look weak while losing by outside interference before it gets old?
This storyline needs a swerve/ 3rd party involved, it has no interest for me.
Overall, a decent PPV, but once again I feel like everything entertaining came from smackdown, while raw stayed perfectly static. Raw needs something to shake up the M/E scene.
Also, there is no excuse for having nothing booked on this card for the following: kofi, MVP, Morrison, and evan bourne yet you book a dolph ziggler vs kahli match.
anyone else watch this and have any thoughts?
