Title This: WWE Raw Reaction For 3-5-12

Josh Isenberg

Chris Jericho and Daniel Bryan def. CM Punk and Sheamus:

What I Liked:

A fantastic match from beginning to end. I loved the Punk and Jericho chemistry to start off the match, teasing how great they will be in Miami. The pace of the match was fast at times, but hit the power and pounding aspect with the entrance of Sheamus. Sheamus and Bryan also worked great together. The chops to his chest were powerful, and I loved the reversal where Bryan kicked Sheamus on the outside. Two different styles and tactics from those two who can work with any size opponent. It may not be the biggest or brightest, but it is going to be a great match. Jericho's pin was perfect. It looked like he outsmarted Punk, which is the type of heel he is supposed to be here. The chaotic pace at the end was great, never lost my interest, and did enough for all four guys tonight.

What I Disliked:

Actually, nothing. Well done.

Grade: A

 Af FThe Rock is now near Paul Revere. He talks about being 25 percent black, 25 percent samoan, and 50 percent Clydesdale. Funny bit here, singing about Cena being a jabroni. It really was another example of the level Rock is on compared to everyone else. Comical, got to the point, and showcased his ability to win the crowd over immediately. Grade: B+

Big Show def. The Miz:

What I Liked:

At first, the pairing intrigued me. After the match, or lack there of, I hated it. Big Show and Rhodes further their storyline which was smart to do on Raw. Let them get a few segments on Raw where many more people will watch and care about.

What I Disliked:

Why did Show need to face The Miz and squash him? There was no point to it, had no relevance, and relaly made Miz look terrible. He goes from the hottest angle, the best angle, and the best two superstars in the past two decades to being squashed 3 weeks before Mania with no story. Poor Miz and whoever he pissed off. This is absurd.

Grade: D+
