Last week's show is here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2012/12/wwe-friday-night-smackdown-12142012.html
We opened up with MizTv.
|"John Cena just wanted to play with my heart and my emotions".|
|"John Cena broke my heart, so I helped Dolph Ziggler break John Cena" - AJ|
|"This is my friend Big E. Langston. He doesn't like it when people use that word(crazy) around me." - AJ|
|"When we talk John Cena, it's just like my shirt says Miz. I stole the show and his girlfriend." - Dolph|
|"He's trouble dog." - Booker|
"But he's got a great social media following". - Teddy
They played Rey's music but he never showed.
Santino Marella vs Tensai
This is payback for the jokes at Tensai last night.
|"Fat Albert huh?" - Tensai|
The announcers said that Sin Cara had "serious knee damage".
Tons of highlights from Raw on this show that served as commercial breaks basically.
|"Kofi, it would be helpful if you grew eyes in the back of your head for tonight." - Kane|
Kofi Kingston, Kane and Daniel Bryan vs Wade Barrett and the PTP's
Kane got the win for his team with a chokeslam on Young. Decent match here with some good work by each guy. They started working rest holds near the end of the match and one of the PTP's got pulled out leading to Young getting chokeslammed for the win. Rating:**3/4
|"I know, in 20 years, all the history books like Grays Sports Almanac are going to look at CM Punk as the greatest heavyweight champion of all time." - CM Punk quoting Back to the Future 2|
|"CM Punk is a winner. Ric Flair is a loser. Ric Flair has lost more title fights than he's won and if you've been paying attention, when it comes to title fights, CM Punk does not lose." - Punk|
|"Nobody else here is entertaining like those women Pittsburgh Penguins who go on strike." - Punk|
|"Punk is not medically cleared to compete." - Paul|
"That's why I have my sights set on the first raw of the new year. Then I'll be the new champion." - Ryback
|"You do this over and over again. It makes it really hard to be your friend." - Kaitlyn|
Diva's title - Eve vs Kaitlyn
Brad Maddox vs Brodus Clay
He said no one would forget his name after tonight.
|Raw on Christmas Eve is hosted by Santa Claus! Doesn't get any bigger than that.|
Overall thoughts: Okay show with bad finishes. Nothing must see and nothing was really furthered besides the Shield. Skip this one.
