The Undercard Part Two
Tamina Snuka defeated Nikki Bella. Snuka picks up the win after AJ and Brie interfere. She hits a Superfly Splash from the top rope and that is all she wrote. Does this do anything for WWE in their attempt at finding a feud for AJ Lee? She desperately needs someone right away or she will fizzle out of our minds.
Fandango defeated Tyson Kidd in another quick match on Raw. The crowd loves Fandango and the UK audience has been great all night. The offense came from Kidd until Fandango rolled him up and hooked his legs. I am not sure what to say about this match because a week ago Kidd looked great. This week, Kidd looked strong in the ring but the loss is somewhat shocking to me. We will see if WWE decides to give Kidd an opportunity or not. He deserves a mid card title shot due to how great of a worker he is.
What We Learned About Cena, Swagger and Cesaro
John Cena defeated The Real Americans. This match got much more time than I originally thought it would. I learned that this match had three really good wrestlers that are completely different. Hate him all you want, but Cena can work with anyone in the ring and make it interesting. He is not the cleanest and most consistent performer, but he knows what works. We learned that Antonio Cesaro has an unbelievable amount of strength that WWE loves about him. I think that is all they love about him though since he is not being used in other areas. We also learned that Swagger and Cesaro, suffering this loss, are still not in the same sentence as a guy like John Cena. They can battle for tag team gold and try to dethrone Cody and Goldust, but they are not going to be taken too seriously on a consistent basis. I liked the fact that Big E Langston came out to save Cena, but will that lead to boos for the new face? They need to be careful about this potentially backfiring.
R-Truth defeated Ryback. Uh, yeah. I could care less about either of these guys. The point of this win is what exactly? What does a win for either guy do? Nothing, because we are told not to care about them longer than a week or two. Ryback is done. Squashed.
Alberto Del Rio defeated Big E Langston. WWE should not allow Langston to lose by submission. He taps out to Del Rio and I feel this was a huge mistake. Langston needs to be protected and needs to use his size as his biggest "it" factor. He should NEVER tap out and that should only add to his intrigue. How does this match make Langston look strong or important?
