Worst: A Hellcat With Rabies

A hellcat with rabies? Sounds, uh, sexy?

I don’t really mind Seth Rollins on the mic — he’s well-spoken, he gets his points across, he just had a natural “Moooo-ooom!” whiny cadence that he can’t help. It actually works for him as a heel, but man, he was dealt some rough material here. Also, Dean Ambrose probably shouldn’t have sold Rollins’ saying they were never friends with a “my high school girlfriend just broke up with me” look of despair.

Best: The World’s Saddest Cake

I didn’t find the birthday fun at the wrestling retirement home segment from Raw to be terribly entertaining, but WWE retroactively redeemed it by showing an after-Raw clip of SLATAH GATA! coming out give Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair et al the most charmingly pathetic cake in wrestling history. Thing looked like they made it in an Easy-Bake oven, but they still needed two men to carry it, and when it ends up on Titus it just kind of looks like he mashed a Twinkie on his chest (sorry Twinkie mashing fetishists, this site probably isn’t what you were searching for). Likely for the best that the cake didn’t make it to the ring — I hear Titus pickled the figs himself…



Oh, there was also a match. Titus/Dolph wasn’t bad and featured Heath doing a doofy white guy version of Titus’ gator bark at ringside, so I was happy. Then of course Titus lost and Heath looked all disappointed, because come on — Heath Slater beat Dolph Ziggler once. How hard could it be?
