Well, I’m just going to get this review out of the way. I honestly don’t have much to say about this show because it’s exactly what I expected it to be – a two match show.
The opening match was the 5 on 5 Elimination Tag Team Match between the Shield and the Real Americans against the Rhodes, the Usos, and Rey Mysterio. This was a really good match – I wouldn’t call it great, but it was easily the best or second best match of the night. I was a little annoyed that Ambrose was eliminated immediately, and even more annoyed when the Real Americans were out before anyone from the faces’ team was eliminated, because I had no trust in them to do what they did – that being making Reigns look like a beast. Reigns took out an Uso and Cody, before Rollins took out the other Uso. Goldust or Rey eliminated Rollins, and Reigns takes the other two out single-handedly. Again, it wasn’t the best match in the world, but it was booked great. #BELIEVEINTHESHIELD
Next, Big E. Langston retained the WWE Intercontinental Championship against Curtis Axel in a boring match, and that was that.
The 7 on 7 Divas Match was what it was. I’m just happy that it’s Natalya that got the win over A.J. That’s the only solace we can take.
Ryback had an open challenge to which Mark Henry accepted, and he won in another boring match. I’ve got nothing to say about almost all of tonight’s matches, sorry.
John Cena retained Dolph Ziggler’s World Heavyweight Championship against Alberto Del Rio in basically the same match from Hell in a Cell, and they definitely did the same exact finish. Nothing else to say, yet again.
Finally, in the only other match worth watching, C.M. Punk and Daniel Bryan defeated the Wyatt Family in a good match. Personally I would’ve had the Wyatts win, but I’m never going to complain about C.M. Punk winning a match. Unfortunately I still don’t have much to say, though.
And finally, Randy Orton retained C.M. Punk’s and Daniel Bryan’s WWE Championship against the Big Show in a boring match after Triple H created a distraction for Orton to hit an RKO and a punt for the win. Hopefully there will be no rematches.
After the match, John Cena came out and he and Orton both held up their titles. Joy. Because we totally want another Orton/Cena feud – but if it leads to a title unification match at TLC, and not anytime around WrestleMania, I’ll deal with it, because they NEED to unify the titles desperately.
Overall, it was a two match show, but the rest was trash.
Overall Rating: *1/2
