    so the E killed off what would have been the best angle in years with a whimper and put the title on THE MIZ out of nowhere. I love THE MIZ but creative dropped the ball big time because they were afraid to turn Cena, disappointing

    WWE Survivor Series PPV Review
    My Review Score: 6.5/10

    Three days late, sorry folks. Better late than never?

    This PPV was just barely above average. It was not advertised well and everything was focused on the Main Event and that didn't deliver. What I really liked was the first three matches. Things were looking good but in the end, the "main eventers" made the show drag.

    Another gripe with the PPVs these days is that it's not worth buying. I thought you're suppose to get what you pay for. Instead, paying for a PPV means = tune into RAW/Smackdown for answers!


    WWE United States Championship Match: Daniel Bryan (United States Champion) vs Ted DiBiase w/Maryse

    Great match. I would definitely like to see a feud between Ted and Daniel in the future. The US Title is actually worth fighting for now that Daniel Bryan is the US Champ. If WWE continues to allow longer matches for the US and Intercontinental title bouts, they'll be in good shape.

    I think everyone knew Daniel Bryan wasn't going to drop the belt and he won cleanly with the LeBell Lock.

    Final Result: Daniel Bryan by submission.

    After the match, Daniel Bryan was headed to the back and got ambushed by The Miz. It's funny this happens because Daniel Bryan never retaliates on The Miz.

    The Miz & Alex Riley segment

    He just cut a heel promo on the crowd. The Miz is great on the mic but he needs a match on a PPV soon.


    John Morrison vs Sheamus

    Fun match. Lots of action and near falls throughout the match. Morrison kept reversing every finisher Sheamus tried to do. Props to Sheamus for putting Morrison over because he needs the win badly.

    Final Result: John Morrison by pinfall.


    WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: Dolph Ziggler (Intercontinental Champion) w/Vickie Guerrero vs Kaval

    This match was better than the US Title Matches. I really liked them both but I thought this one came out on top. Good back and forth action here. Kaval looked pretty darn good in this match and we have to credit Dolph for selling it. Speaking of Dolph, he's come a long way as well and I really enjoy watching him wrestle on Smackdown.

    I think Dolph won with a roll-up but hopefully they continue to feud because otherwise, Kaval will be forgotten.

    Final Result: Dolph Ziggler by pinfall.


    Traditional Survivor Series Match: Team Mysterio - Rey Mysterio, Big Show, Kofi Kingston, MVP, & Chris Masters vs Team Del Rio - Alberto Del Rio, Dashing Cody Rhodes, Drew McIntyre, Jack Swagger, & Tyler Reks

    I didn't like this match was booked at all. It ended up being weird and a complete time filler.

    MVP had a HUGE reaction being from Miami, Florida. What happens to him? He gets eliminated first. I mean sure, Alberto Del Rio held his legs down on the outside, but it was still dumb.

    Another thing that stuck out in a dumb way was that Alberto Del Rio got "knocked out" from Big Show's punch. Watti and I thought he'll come back later to win the match but he didn't. Ooookay.

    They had Big Show and Rey Mysterio win the match for no good reason. Way to bury people who need to be pushed instead.

    Final Result: Team Mysterio. Big Show and Rey Mysterio were the sole survivors.


    Handicap Divas Championship Match: Lay-Cool (Co-Divas Champion) vs. Natalya

    I liked the winner of the match but I didn't like the outcome. Natalya couldn't win her one on one matches but she wins a handicapped match? And that's only because Lay-Cool butted heads. So the handicapped match ended up in Natalya's favor.. which doesn't make sense.

    Beth Phoenix returned AFTER the match. She was returning either way, she might as well have helped Natalya win the Divas Title so Lay-Cool didn't look bad. Either way though, Lay-Cool had a great run. Hopefully Natalya winning the Divas Title will bring Alicia Fox, Melina, Maryse, Eve, etc back in the mix on RAW.

    Keep in mind that Beth Phoenix is on Smackdown so she'll feud with Lay-Cool or something if she stays a face.

    Final Result: Natalya by submission.


    WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater (WWE Tag Team Champions) vs Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov

    I love Nexus and the excitement they have brought to the WWE but this match was bad. Santino and Vladimir are not title contenders. Thankfully this was kept short. We saw Slater's finisher but we didn't see the 450 splash.

    Final Result: Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater retain the Tag Titles by pinfall.


    World Heavyweight Championship Match: Kane (World Heavyweight Champion) vs Edge

    Remember what I said above? About how it's not worth paying for the PPVs if you don't get answers? They used this match to build for the TLC match.

    The match was sloooooooow. It was boring and I didn't like it. Edge intentionally slid on his back after he speared Kane. (Why?)

    I'm trying to think about which match could be good for Edge and Kane at TLC. A Chairs match? A Tables Match? Certainly not a Ladder Match... though that's Edge's match.

    Final Result: Kane by "pinfall".


    No DQ and No Countout WWE Championship Match (Free or Fired): Randy Orton (WWE Champion) vs Wade Barrett with John Cena as the Special Guest Referee

    They really don't want Wade Barrett to have the title. They REALLY don't want Cena to turn heel. Damn it WWE. STOP PLAYING IT SAFE. It's pissing me off. Fans have been craving something different but $$$ is all Vince cares about.

    The focus of this match was all on Cena. Especially the promo they had for him... did he die or something? What's with the super sad music to go with the video?

    Anyway, the match was bad. It was slow and it never really picked up. Cena was pretty biased in this match too. He slow counted Barrett's wasteland finisher. He shoved Barrett onto Orton so he ate the RKO. Cena didn't really hesitate went counting too.

    It's one thing to have Orton win this match, but where is the drama? It would be nice to see Cena count 1-2 and then stop for Wade because he can't bring himself to do it. Or he should have counted 1-2 and stopped for Orton because he didn't want to get fired. We didn't get any of that drama they kept building up. What a downer...

    Then the "goodbye" segment for Cena as he high-fived the fans was such BS. They made this a bigger deal than HBK (who really left). Quit insulting our intelligence WWE. Please.

    Final Result: Randy Orton by pinfall after the RKO.

    -------------------------------------------------

    That's my SS review. Hope you liked it. RAW was way better and I'm excited to type about that later. Thanks for looking!

    it sort of happened because fans were cheering for him, he never said anything face like or anything really heelish for awhile he was just battling other heels and was a tweener for a bit but it was the fans reaction that got the E to push him as a face he never really did anything to garner a face push.

    TC good write up, I'll comment more a bit later but the one thing I do agree with was ppv's used to answer questions now they just give you more stupid questions

    Thumbs up RAW Review - 11/22/10

    RAW Review - 11/22/10

    I really wanted to comment on this RAW so here goes.

    Nexus segment

    Wade Barrett pretty much accused Cena of being a biased ref because he shoved him towards Orton for the RKO (which is true). The GM then granted Wade Barrett a rematch for the WWE Championship during the main event. Great! What's stupid is that Wade Barrett "allowed" Cena to be on RAW to say goodbye.

    CM Punk joins RAW Commentary until he's healthy

    Great decision to put Punk on the commentary booth with Cole and King. I read that Vince likes a 3 man broadcast team, which explains him putting & keeping Cole on the Smackdown team as well.

    CM Punk's commentary reminds me of Matt Striker. He states the facts correctly, will remain unbiased, and is fun to listen to!

    King of the Ring Qualifying Match: Sheamus vs R-Truth w/Eve

    Qualifying Matches? Cool. R-Truth coming out to his old song again. WWE finally realized that the new one sucked and the fans never got into it. This was an okay match, we all knew who was going to win anyway.

    Final Result: Sheamus by pinfall.

    King of the Ring Qualifying Match: Ezekiel Jackson vs Alex Riley

    The Miz was originally supposed to be in this match but Alex Riley took his place. It makes sense because you need to push Big Zeke and right now... The Miz and Big Zeke can't really afford to lose a match. Alex Riley on the other hand, needs a win. I really hate to see him job so much but that is what he's here for at this time.

    Big Zeke wins easily and I wonder if they'll make him King. I have a feeling though that if he loses in the tournament, it'll be by countout.

    Final Result: Ezekiel Jackson by pinfall.

    John Cena Segment

    I'm sure you guys already know that I am not a fan of John Cena. But that is mostly because he almost always turns into Super Cena and refuses to "sell" the moves other wrestlers dish out. As for this segment, I thought he did a hell of a job. The fake sob story was dumb, but he did the best he could since we all know that he isn't really fired.

    His ability to get the fans to chant "Let's go Cena" and "Cena sucks" was really great to see. But as you can tell from the fan camera shots, no one really seems to care because no one believes that he is gone.

    King of the Ring Qualifying Match: Daniel Bryan (US Champion) w/Nikki Bella vs Ted DiBiase w/Maryse

    They're going to stick with this gimmick. The "Daniel Bryan" is a ladies man gimmick. I like it. He's still very rough with the mic but he sure can wrestle. Might as well give him some kind of gimmick to further develop his character.

    Ted DiBiase needs a win.. badly. His singles "career" is looking bad so far. Daniel Bryan on the other hand is on a roll. I'm glad he got the win. I don't see him winning the tournament though, but he sure is fun to watch so far. Ted taps out to the LeBell Lock in this one.

    Final Result: Daniel Bryan by submission.

    Natalya (Divas Champion) vs Alicia Fox

    There was a segment backstage before this match where Lay-Cool wasn't allowed in the arena because they aren't "RAW" superstars. Pretty stupid considering these guys go back and forth between shows whenever they want...

    As for the match, Alicia Fox jobs as usual. Not liking the way she's being treated in the WWE but what can you do?

    Final Result: Natalya by submission.

    King of the Ring Qualifying Match: John Morrison vs Tyson Kidd

    Tyson Kidd's first match as a heel and you put him up against John Morrison? Ugh... use your brains WWE. Tyson Kidd can wrestle, but putting him in a match again John Morrison who also needs to win is a bad mistake.

    This match was pretty solid though and we see John Morrison with the win. We also saw Melina smacking Morrison in the butt backstage and CM Punk made a hilarious comment about "What is up with the Divas".

    Final Result: John Morrison by pinfall.

    WWE Championship Match: Wade Barrett vs Randy Orton (WWE Champion)

    Randy Orton came out first which is unusual since he's the champ. But then Nexus attacked Orton as he was walking to the ring. So THAT'S why he came out first.

    Jerry Lawler made a retarded comment because he said, "Why would Nexus do this?"

    So Randy Orton is "hurt" and Wade Barrett went right at him. This match was much better than the Survivor Series Match and it moved at a better pace.

    Barrett hit the Wasteland finish on Orton and was about to win when Cena runs in from the crowd and pulls the ref out. He then hit Barrett with an Attitude Adjustment. Nexus stormed the ring and chased Cena away. Randy Orton recovered enough to hit Wade Barrett with the RKO and retains the WWE Championship. I was very disappointed with Cena's action until...........

    Final Result: Randy Orton retains the WWE Championship by pinfall.

    AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Finally this moment has come. The Miz has held the Money in the Bank briefcase for over 4 months and he's finally cashing it in on a "hurt" Orton.

    WWE Championship Match: The Miz w/Alex Riley vs Randy Orton (WWE Champion)

    So Orton has a hurt leg, ate a Wasteland finisher from Barrett and has to defend against a fresh Miz. Works for me. The Miz was aggressive from the start but I was a little worried when Orton countered a lot of The Miz's move.

    Orton was about to hit the RKO but The Miz blocked/reversed it to hit the Skull Crushing Finale! The Miz covers Orton and wins the WWE Championship for the 1st time ever. Just seeing the emotion coming out from The Miz was great. That was a true mark-out moment because he deserves it.

    Coming in to the company as a reality TV star, no one took him seriously at all. He literally worked his way up from the bottom of the ladder. Now he's finally the WWE Champion. I really hope that he can hold it until Wrestlemania... but we'll have to wait and see.

    Final Result: The Miz wins the new WWE Title by pinfall.



    The TLC PPV is a gimmick match, so I can see The Miz retaining against Orton.

    The Royal Rumble PPV, I can see The Miz retaining as well because the main focus is the Royal Rumble Match anyway.

    The Elimination Chamber is where it gets dangerous. 6 guys in the match, I'm not sure how they'll find a way to let The Miz retain and then headline Wrestlemania...

    ---------------------------------------

    Setting up for TLC I can see The Miz vs Randy Orton in a Tables Match.

    With Cena fired, I have a bad feeling that Wade Barrett will get the GM to reinstate Cena so he can "teach him a lesson". In the meantime though, Juan Cena will be taking Cena's place. Yes, you read correctly... Juan Cena is John Cena's Mexican cousin. Reports from house shows is that Juan Cena wears a purple mask. He comes out to Cena's music and wear's Cena's shirt. No creativity there from the WWE Team. But you can bet that fans will buy these purple masks like crazy...

    My Smackdown Review is coming up...

    Thumbs up Smackdown Review - 11/26/10

    Smackdown Review - 11/26/10

    An average episode of Smackdown. They also had King of the Ring Qualifying Matches and further developed the Kane/Edge storyline.

    Kane & Edge segment

    Kane started Smackdown by telling people he's a human being like the rest of us. He too, wants to be with family like the rest of us during the holiday season. Edge came out with an empty wheelchair again.

    It's hard to describe Edge right now. He's suppose to be "psychotic" and all that yet he's face. Edge pretty much told Kane that all he had to do was ask nicely and he'll return Paul Bearer.

    Kane does as he was told and Edge pretty much said, "Too bad!" Kind of weird... lol

    King of the Ring Qualifying Match: Kofi Kingston vs Jack Swagger w/Eagle Mascot

    This was a long match and Swagger had the upper hand for about 75% of the match. The Eagle mascot was hilarious as usual but didn't really do much otherwise. Swagger made some mistakes and got hit with a Trouble in Paradise for his troubles.

    King Swagger would be great... but Kofi Kingston might be a better choice.

    Final Result: Kofi Kingston by pinfall.

    King of the Ring Qualifying Match: Alberto Del Rio vs Big Show

    When the Big Show came out, they showed the fans in the front row cheering. There was a girl who looks exactly like Kelly Kelly! Even Matt Striker threw in the comment, "She looks like Kelly Kelly" while Michael Cole and Todd Grisham were talking about the Big Show.

    Alberto Del Rio worked on Big Show's left knee and looked pretty smart doing so. The end came with they both fought outside the ring. Alberto Del Rio got in the ring when the ref was at the count of 6. Ricardo Rodriguez grabbed Big Show's legs to prevent him from getting in the ring. Big Show grabbed him by the head and gave him a knock out punch while the ref counted to 10.

    So Alberto Del Rio wins and he is my pick for the King of the Ring tournament.

    Final Result: Alberto Del Rio by countout.

    King of the Ring Qualifying Match: Drew McIntyre vs MVP

    Pretty short match here. Drew McIntyre worked over MVP's shoulder and got it "injured". MVP got destroyed but tried to fight back on numerous occasions. He ate the Future Shock DDT finisher though and lost.

    I really like Drew but at the same time I feel like MVP needed the win more. He got his new entrance music yet he's still being buried over and over. Is he the next Matt Hardy?

    Final Result: Drew McIntyre by pinfall.

    Kelly Kelly vs Michelle McCool w/Layla

    You can't have RAW or Smackdown without a short 2 minute Divas match! Kelly Kelly got the upset win over Michelle McCool and then Lay-Cool attacked Kelly Kelly until Beth Phoenix made the save.

    Beth Phoenix gave Michelle McCool the Glam Slam as well. Matt Striker mentioned that Beth is getting revenge because Lay-Cool injured her. After Striker said that, Michael Cole said, "What's Beth's problem anyway?!"

    Final Result: Kelly Kelly by pinfall.

    King of the Ring Qualifying Match: Dashing Cody Rhodes vs Rey Mysterio

    Alberto Del Rio did guest commentary for this one. Really funny to see him give Michael Cole a hug. Todd Grisham stuck his hand out for a handshake but Alberto ignored him.

    The match was fun for the most part. Dashing Cody Rhodes kept running away from Rey's attacks that was about to hit his face. Cody Rhodes did this for a few minutes until Rey kept kicking his face then he didn't care anymore.

    Alberto Del Rio got involved in the match when Rey maliciously attacked him for no reason. This prompt a ref bump and then Alberto Del Rio low blowed Rey Mysterio on the ring post.

    Dashing Cody Rhodes quickly picked up Rey Mysterio and hit the Cross Rhodes finisher to win the match.

    Final Result: Dashing Cody Rhodes by pinfall.

    Edge, Kane, and Paul Bearer segment

    There were lots of segments in between the matches on Smackdown where Edge kept telling Kane to come get Paul Bearer but Kane was constantly one step behind.

    The last segment showed Paul Bearer tied up again in the wheelchair and Edge told Kane to get his dad before an "accident" happens. Kane ran to the parking lot and Edge drove a car and ran over "Paul Bearer". It was a really dumb scene as it showed a puppet of Paul Bearer getting smashed into pieces. Kane was furious thinking it was his dad but then Edge stopped the car with Paul Bearer in the backseat.

    Edge then sped off and the show ended with Kane really pissed.

    ---------------------------------------

    Edge and Kane will wrestle for the World Heavyweight Championship match for sure at TLC.

    We also have our 8 participants for the King of the Ring Tournament on a 3 hour RAW.

    We have John Morrison, Sheamus, Daniel Bryan, Ezekiel Jackson, Dashing Cody Rhodes, Kofi Kingston, Drew McIntyre, and Alberto Del Rio. Who will be the next king?

    I would personally love to see Alberto Del Rio win it. Sheamus is a favorite but he's already had 2 WWE Title reigns, I don't think he needs to win this tourney. I really can't see Daniel Bryan, Ezekiel Jackson, Dashing Cody Rhodes, and Drew McIntyre winning it either. The rest are a tossup.

    Thumbs down King of the Ring RAW Review - 11/29/10

    King of the Ring RAW Review - 11/29/10

    This episode of RAW was pretty terrible. Piss poor lazy booking is back and the main event was so bad that it destroyed all credibilty for the WWE Champ, The Miz.

    Alex Riley segment

    A-Ri started the show by telling the fans he has a huge celebration planned for the new WWE Champion, The Miz. Alex Riley is really strong on the mic and he sure has the charisma. Not sure it was smart for him or WWE to make fun of his DUI by having him say he's the "life of the party"...

    King of the Ring 1st Round Match: Alberto Del Rio vs Daniel Bryan (United States Champion)

    Terrific match to start RAW with. This was the match of the night. It just goes to show you that the quality of the show went downhill really quick though.

    Anyway, back to the match. These two guys can really wrestle and it was back and forth with each of them getting their unique moves in. Daniel Bryan did the usual suicide dive of the ring to try and hit Alberto Del Rio but he ended up crashing into the barricades, "hurting" his shoulder.

    That's the signal for Alberto Del Rio's armbar finisher and he made Daniel Bryan tap out immediately.

    Final Result: Alberto Del Rio by submission.

    R-Truth challenges Nexus

    R-Truth talks about how Cena may be fired but the war is just getting started. He challenged anyone from Nexus to a 1 on 1 match so Michael McGillicutty answered the challenge.

    By the way, Nexus already has new shirts and boy... the design is gross. Maybe it'll grow on me but I think it's ugly as hell right now.

    McGillicutty never made it to the ring because he was assaulted by Cena backstage. Nice going WWE. Have a guy who is fired show up to assault people. Cena can't stay off TV for a week? Really? Really?! Damn you WWE.

    King of the Ring 1st Round Match: Dashing Cody Rhodes vs John Morrison

    I was wondering if WWE would dare have a heel vs heel match in this day and age and to nobody's surprise, they didn't. John Morrison won handily in this match... which is fine because he needs a push. He's starting to develop a new finisher where he just kicks the opponent in the head. It's better than Starship Pain that's for sure.

    Final Result: John Morrison by pinfall.

    King of the Ring 1st Round Match: Ezekiel Jackson vs Drew McIntyre

    I did not like this match at all. Both of these guys are the future of the company and both of them need victories, but you pair them up in the 1st round? So what will the WWE do? Go the easy way out? That's right! That's exactly what they did.

    Double Countout for these two fine gentlemen... This way, neither of them look "bad" in the loss, but none of them looked good either.

    Final Result: Double Countout.

    King of the Ring 1st Round Match: Sheamus vs Kofi Kingston

    Another short 4-5 minute KOTR match. What's the point of having a 3 hour RAW if your KOTR matches are so short? Kofi Kingston did the best he could but Sheamus showed his dominance here.

    He also gets the typical heel free "bye" to the Finals because Big Zeke and McIntyre went to a double countout earlier.

    Final Result: Sheamus by pinfall.

    The Miz segment

    It's 9:00 PM Eastern, which means it's the perfect time to introduce the new WWE Champion (in case people forgot RAW was 3 hours long). The Miz came out with Alex Riley and The Miz said he didn't need a big celebration.

    He showed the pissed off little girl on the titantron though, that was hilarious. The Miz cut a really great promo on how he deserves to be champ. He insulted Piper and all the legends who didn't win it... and then this is when it went downhill.

    Jerry "The King" Lawler... yes Jerry MFing Lawler interrupted The Miz. He called The Miz a coward (with the way he won it), never mind the fact that previous MITB winners cashed in the same way. Jerry then told The Miz to defend the title against someone who never had a title shot before, HIM.

    Obviously, The Miz declined since he's a heel and a match between him and Jerry Lawler = stupid. Oh wait, speaking of stupid... the RAW GM thought it would be a great idea. He sets up the match in a TLC match, no less (to promote the PPV) for the main event.

    What kind of RAW was this again? I thought it was King of the Ring. Way to take away the spotlight of the tourney.

    Non-Title Match: Mark Henry & Yoshi Tatsu vs Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater (WWE Tag Team Champions)

    Before this match started... John Cena "bought" a ticket to get in the arena. Way to show up late there buddy. He pretty much distracts Nexus and Mark Henry actually defeated Heath Slater with the World's Strongest Slam. Before the finish came, Yoshi Tatsu took out Justin Gabriel too.

    So right when the match ended, John Cena hops over the rail to which CM Punk said, "Where the hell is security?". Cena then puts Heath Slater through the announce table with the Attitude Adjustment. Punk made some hilarious comments again by saying, "This isn't the Spanish announce table!" and "You spilled my diet soda!".

    Cena runs off into the crowd as the rest of Nexus storm the ring and help an "injured" Heath Slater to the back.

    Talk about ridiculous huh? A guy who is fired is free to assault anyone he wants. Great logic there WWE.

    Final Result: Mark Henry and Yoshi Tatsu by pinfall.

    King of the Ring Semifinals Match: Alberto Del Rio vs John Morrison

    More pathetic booking coming up. Alberto Del Rio and John Morrison would both make great "Kings". So how will the finish be determined? Why... let's have Rey Mysterio distract Alberto Del Rio! All he did was honk the horn to the Rolls Royce too. That's not really much of a distraction, but whatever. John Morrison kicked Alberto Del Rio and advances to the KOTR Finals with a pinfall victory.

    Final Result: John Morrison by pinfall.

    Wade Barrett and John Cena segment

    Wade Barrett gets on the mic and told people that the RAW GM granted him powers where only he can get John Cena re-instated in the WWE. He says everyone thinks he's dumb enough where he'll get so mad at Cena taking out Nexus one by one that he'll have him re-instated so he can fight him. Well, Wade Barrett said tough luck. John Cena will never work in the WWE again.

    Then Cena is backstage with a camera on him. He's FIRED. What is he doing backstage? This makes no sense.

    Cena explains that the reason why security hasn't stopped him was because they couldn't stop Nexus. This makes no sense since Nexus outnumbered "security" when they attacked. Cena... is working alone. John Cena basically said he doesn't care that he's fired and that he isn't going to stop until he takes out everyone from Nexus.

    But then Otunga, Harris, and Gabriel surrounded Cena and Wade told them to attack. Cena then said he has help and it's the RAW Locker Room. Oh look! Darren Young sighting!

    Harris and Otunga slips away from the attack somehow and Justin Gabriel got thrown in a car door, thrown into chairs, and ate the Attitude Adjustment finisher onto the hood of the car. Ouch. He really took a beating.

    So now Michael McGillicutty, Heath Slater, and Justin Gabriel have been "taken out"

    Otunga and Harris had a backstage segment later in the show and Harris was scared. Otunga said he had an idea... and that was it. Guess we'll have to find out next week what that idea was.

    Natalya (Divas Champion), Gail Kim, & Melina vs Maryse, Tamina, & Alicia Fox

    Really stupid match here. The focus was on Tamina and Santino. Basically, Melina was getting beat up in the ring by Alicia Fox and then Santino sang a song. It "froze time" because all the Divas stopped wrestling.

    Tamina ditches her tag partners and goes to be with Santino. Back in the ring, Melina tags in Natalya and she puts Alicia Fox in the Sharpshooter yet again.

    Final Result: Natalya, Gail Kim, & Melina by submission.

    King of the Ring Finals: John Morrison vs Sheamus

    Very average match between the two. The match at Survivor Series was better. Sheamus does NOT need to win the King of the Ring tourney.. but he did. Why? They were hyping up the tourney that the winner will "rise" to stardom. Sheamus is already a two time WWE Champion. This win does nothing for him. John Morrison needed it more but didn't win. Not sure I like the booking there yet again...

    Final Result: Sheamus by pinfall after the High Cross.

    WWE Championship TLC Match: The Miz (WWE Champion) w/Alex Riley vs Jerry "The King" Lawler

    Time to rant some more... sorry folks.

    This match was DUMB. The logical thing would be for The Miz to flat out destroy Jerry Lawler and retain quickly but they gave this match 15 minutes. What the hell?!?!

    CM Punk constantly reminded us that all it takes is "one mistake" in this match and Jerry Lawler can win it. Michael Cole insisted that The Miz will win no matter what and doesn't think Jerry stands a chance.

    The match started off fine, with The Miz punishing Jerry with a chair. But when Jerry started countering... ugh. That was just the beginning of it though. Alex Riley tried to help on numerous ocassions but Jerry Lawler eventually put him through a table.

    The Miz tried to fight back but was no match for Jerry. The King then put The Miz through a table on the outside. Unreal.

    Jerry The King Lawler climbs the ladder and Michael Cole has finally seen enough. He tries to help The Miz up from the table to no avail. Jerry is about 2 steps away from winning the WWE Title when Michael Cole pulls him down from the ladder.

    Jerry chases Michael around the ring asking him what his problem is before clocking him and throwing a ton of punches to Cole. The Miz gets up and climbs the ladder but not before Jerry Lawler stops him.

    They both fight at the top of the ladder but The Miz finally gets the upper hand by hitting Jerry in the head with the WWE Title. Jerry falls off the ladder and The Miz retains his WWE Championship.

    I really hated this match because it made The Miz look extremely weak in his first title defense. The Miz BARELY retained with a 3 on 1 advantage... come on... really?

    I was surprised that CM Punk didn't just climb the ladder himself to get the title based on how stupid the match was. Oddly enough, he remained on commentary since The King and Cole weren't.

    Final Result: The Miz retains the WWE Championship.

    --------------------------------------

    Overall, it was just a really bad show. They took away the focus from the King of the Ring tourney. The booking was bad and nothing made sense. The Cena thing has gotten so ridiculous that I'm thinking about not watching RAW for awhile.

    What are your thoughts? Agree with my rants? Am I out of line because I'm asking for too much?
