-Dolph Ziggler shined for me to start off Raw with his promo he cut on top of the ladder. He sounded unrehearsed and raw, which is something rare. Most guys seem so scripted and so generic, but Ziggler stepped out of his shell in this promo. I have loved seeing the maturity from Ziggler, and now we know he can carry a feud. This also brought out Cena, Show, and Sheamus, just in time to set up matches for tonight. I appreciated all of it. Grade: A-
–CM Punk comes out with Paul Heyman to talk about how legit his knee injury was. He talks about Ryback being in his hindsight and how he is facing The Rock at Royal Rumble. I did not think it was a great idea for Heyman to point out Rock not being there, but I understand what he was trying to do. He tries to validify the reign, the injury, and the hard work Punk puts in. Nonetheless, Punk shifted his entire focus on The Rock, and that is really what the past few months have been building for. Ryback did what was needed from him, and a star was made. Now, it really is time to realize the WWE Championship is the biggest story, especially with The Great One returning. Grade: B+
–MizTv aired, once again, and had Rhodes Scholars as the guest. As he continues to improve his overall face turn, Miz does a great job at poking fun at the partners, dissing Cody Rhodes, and getting under their skin. We find out they will face Rey and Sin at WWE TLC for a chance to face Team Hell No. It seems like due to injuries, they had to bump it back a few times. Now, it looks like these feuds will be in full force. I wouldn't be surprised if The Shield will end up getting into this mix. It gave the fans a break from the wrestling and helped Miz stay interesting, even without a match. Grade: B
