This episode of RAW was to get us all hyped for the Rumble. How many matches do we have besides the two title matches? Is the IC belt being defended? Is the US belt being defended? Are the Tage Belts being defended? And why is Dolph Ziggler even going to waste time with the Rumble when he has MITB? Don't get me wrong, I liked seeing him, AJ, and Big E screw up Sheamus's chance at the beat the clock challenge, but it's like, you don't even need the rumble. Sit back, watch Big Show and Del Rio destroy each other and then you go out and finish off the winner to win your World Heavyweight belt. Simple right? Ziggler's had that MITB case forever. Cash it in already.
Overall I found RAW to be average. We got a new name into the Hall of Fame, Bob Backlend. Did I spell his last name right? I feel bad not having watched wrestling as a little kid because half the people they put in the hall of fame I don't even know. I'm so ashamed of myself I don't know about the rest of you but I find the Shield aka Nexus Junior, more and more pointless the more I see them. I say they should just break them up and have them do singles stuff, because the Shield just isn't doing it for me. I have never felt excited for them like I did the NWO, Nexus or any other big evil group. Sorry but I find Shield a boring concept right now.
The Rock being banned from the area and the backstage security giving him tickets to let him in. Hmmm, I wonder of those security guys got fired by Vickie? Anyway it was to hype up Rock vs CM Punk. I'll be shocked if Punk actually retains that belt. Because unlike Cena vs Rock, the Rock is the clear favorite to win. If Punk does lose, I won't be disappointed. He had a long title regin and even though it was not the best it will still look better then Rock's two month title reign to mania. I doubt Rock will wrestle on TV. So I guess Cena and Punk will still be the main event wrestlers then? Whatever, as far as the Royal Rumble goes, I guess I want Ryback to win if only because I don't want to see Cena win it again, but I know he will. I just don't care to see Rock lose the belt to Cena. It was suppose to be once in a lifetime XD then again Hogan and Rock had a rematch in 2003 so it's not like we haven't had this before.
Daniel Bryan and Kane's segment was probably the most entertaining for me. The WWE universe hugging it out and I admit I like Brad Maddox on the commentary team. It's funny I will admit it. Am I excited for the Rumble? Kinda.
