Title This: WWE Raw Reaction January 27th, 2014 “Lesnar Doesn’t Need The Championship, But Should Get It”

Josh Isenberg

The Undercard Part Two

WWE Raw ReactionAlberto Del Rio defeated Kofi Kingston in their best match to date. I find it humerous that these guys have fought time and time again, only for Del Rio to fail in the main event and Kofi thriving as a mid card guy. Kingston and Del Rio work so smooth together. Counters were the story of this match. After Del Rio ducks a Trouble in Paradise, he tries to set up for a big move. Kingston hits S.O.S instead and gets a two count. Kofi counters another move from Del Rio, but gets hit with a Backstabber for a near fall. Alberto plays the crowd up a bit before heading to the top rope. Kofi kicks him in the head and tries for a superplex, but Alberto throws him back down, stomps on him and hits a superkick for the victory. They even gave us a commercial break! Kofi and Alberto are on the same level right now, which is not a bad thing. You have to book creatively with both guys if you want either to get to another level. If you do not and are okay with this simplistic action on a weekly basis, I won't complain.

Score: 8/10

The Bellas and The Funkadactyls defeated Aksana, AJ Lee, Tamina and Alicia Fox. Naomi gets the victory over AJ Lee, but it came after some really solid wrestling. All Divas that were involved did a pretty good job at progressing the action from them to the next Diva in line. I am really beginning to enjoy the wrestling of Aksana, someone who has really stepped up her game. As for Naomi, is she the right choice to dethrone AJ Lee? Should ANYONE take the title off of her?

Score: 5/10
