Blah, I missed the whole first hour today, Monday's suck for me but they were atleast be temporary cleared up after next week(until after christmas).
Cena came out to talk. He said a gentleman doesn't kiss and tell but obviously he forgot telling everyone about the kiss with AJ on Smackdown. Vickie came out and gave Cena matching bathrobes for him and AJ. Vickie brought up AJ's bad dating history and she actually made some pretty good reasons that John shouldn't be messing around with AJ like her costing DB the belt, asking Punk for marriage out of nowhere and being nuts. She convinced me. AJ said that she can do whatever she wants since shes not the GM now.
Dolph came out and said that AJ was thinking of him during the Cena kiss last week. Cena wanted to hit him but Vickie made Cena vs Ziggler tonight.
Kofi Kingston vs Tensai
Wade was out on commentary here. He promised to rip Kofi's ears off and shove them down his throat. Tensai hit a stiff clothesline and Kofi did a flip bump. Kofi got his kicks blocked and Tensai hit a hanging final cut off the ropes. Kofi then got the win soon after with a springboard splash. Wade then came in and gave Kofi the IC belt. Good match here but it could have been great with another 5-10.
Daniel Bryan showed a map of the US and the World showing which state and country preferred with which wrestler. Since it was DB's, they were all for him. DB then said he didn't have one for hell, so Kane might have won it. Then, Kane ended up winning the poll to fight CM Punk later in the show and said, "Red Rules". They then announced Rey vs DB, right now.
Rey Mysterio vs Daniel Bryan
This is a first time ever match and could be considered a dream match in some circles. DB hit a big running knee off the apron to Rey. DB pulled out his old hammerlock and foot on the other arm combo that he did in ROH. Rey got hung up in the corner upside down and DB tee'd off on him. King brought up how he didn't know what Rey's name meant until recently and Cole said it meant "mystery". That's sad. Rey did a 619 around the post and a splash from the top to win. This was a very good match but could have used more time as well. I'd love to see them get some PPV time as they brought the goods here. Rating:***1/4
Rosa said thank you to ADR for defending her against Khali and Hornswoggle and ADR said anytime then winked at her.
Dolph cut a promo and said he had the advantage tonight because Cena is obsessed with AJ.
Dolph Ziggler vs John Cena
Sheamus vs Antonio Cesaro
Damien Sandow vs Zack Ryder
Cole interviewed Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins:
|"When I have something to say, I'll say it." - Roman Reigns|
"We've said enough." - Roman Reigns, closing the interview
ProWresBlog Championship - CM Punk vs Kane
CM Punk is the ProWresBlog champion for the 2nd time after winning the 3-way at Survivor Series.
Overall thoughts: We got a bunch of decent to good matches here so I have no problem with this Raw at all. The Shield's interview was decent enough and overall it was a fine show.
