Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara Defeats Primetime Players
What I Liked:
Once again, this is another filler match. Mysterio and Cara take the offense from the very beginning, but PTP made a big step up in my books tonight. Titus O'Neil is extremely powerful, and his speed and versatility is catching up quicker than I expected. He is realy going to be a big player for such a long time in the company. All that he needs to do is work on his character outside of the ring. His physique is perfect for what they are booking him. PTP dominated most of the match, until Rey came in and took over.
What I Disliked:
Do we really want to see Sin and Rey together each week? They are basically blueprints of one another and are not different in many ways. The masks, the creativity, and the speed is extremely similar. I want to see tag teams with more to offer. PTP has much more to offer, and should have beaten the faces in Atlanta. They have lost steam overall, but still bring their A game every single week. The crowd just did not care enough, so why would the crowd at home?
The Big Show Defeats Sheamus to win the World Heavyweight Championship
What I Liked:
I can honestly say this exceeded all of my expectations. Sheamus and The Big Show did great things tonight inside the squared circle. The Big Show took control early and struck down the powerful champion. Chops to the chest sounded so painful and looked great on the pale body of Sheamus. Show launches Sheamus over the announcer's table, and this is where the match picks up. You can call it a slugfest, but I thought this was much better than that. The speed of the match shocked me, from a transitional standpoint. They wasted no time going from one move to the next, and that is hard to do when facing a man weighing 440 pounds. Sheamus' DDT was excellent, and both men were able to get quick counters with the match getting the crowd involved. I loved that Sheamus kicked out of the WMD, Big Show kicked out of the Brogue Kick, and one more punch knocked out the champion. Big Show is not my first choice as champion, but there needed to be a change. Maybe this will benefit Sheamus even more, chasing the title rather than holding it and having weaker competition to chase him.
