Daniel Bryan. Just all over. The guy rules. You already know. I don’t need to tell you.
Dolph Ziggler. The guy has always been great in the ring but he’s getting to be well rounded. I’ve enjoyed his recent mic work and I also really like his entrance without Vickie. It just seems to have more impact now. Ziggler’s bumps in this match were wowing and that’s what matters. When he did the monkey flip off of Kofi, it may not have been the most realistic thing in the world, but it looked f**king awesome and that’s what people want to see! Ziggler is a talented guy with a lot of confidence. He’s super handsome and it looks like he finally stopped talking so f**king fast. I think he’s a future face of the company.
Jerry Lawler claiming that Alberto Del Rio can’t be the greatest thing Mexico has given the world because of tacos. I know, it should be a worst but at this point, he’s just delivering what’s expected. Jerry Lawler’s racism is like a comforting constant. When we’re far away from home, I appreciate being able to go to Starbucks and get the same drink I would get next to my house. Jerry Lawler saying racist shit just let’s me know I’m still watching wrestling.
Nevermind. The “Ricardo’s brothers names are Jose and Hose-B” joke was too much. Come on, dude.
Was Foley really kept a part of this story just to get a cheap Socko pop? I love Foley. The first show I saw live was In Your House Mind Games that closed with Foley/Michaels. I think he’s an incredible asset but man, oh man is he misused right now. He can make you feel anything he has to say so give him something decent to say. He can probably still take a bump or two also. I think you can get him into something decent and really really put over a young guy.
Holy shit. Orton doesn’t know what to do if you don’t get up for the RKO. He legit looked confused. Ziggler beat the system by just staying down. That’s awesome. I just imagine the voices in his head going “What the f**k? We did the power slam. We did the hanging DDT. We coiled like a snake and slammed the mat. Now he gets up and we hit the RKO. What’s he doing? Why’s he just laying there?! GET UP!!!” and then having some sort of existential breakdown where they question what is and isn’t real in this world.
Maybe the best of all, they let Ziggler do the Super Kick. Remember all the shit I was talking about bad finishers? I had Ziggler’s on the list until the end of this match. The Zig Zag sucks. Dolph has all of the skills to be the next HBK. What’s even better is that they did it the right way. The end of that match told an awesome story. Ziggler does the Zig Zag and should get the win. Orton kicks out because he’s the sole survivor for a million years running or some shit and beats Ziggler up. Zigs is all but dead and has to reach down and hit something even more explosive than his (totally non-) explosive finisher. Boom! Super kick. He makes it look incredible and I’ll be crushed if he doesn’t keep doing it.
They spent the whole match putting over how Miz and Orton have beef and nothing came of it. I wasn’t dying to see that feud but I just wish things had direction. I guess we’ll see what happens.
