Cody Rhodes defeated Road Dogg while continuing their feud. Dogg plays a good heel in the ring because of how cocky he comes off naturally. I really enjoyed this match because it is only adding more fuel to the fire. They will have a rematch on Raw inside a Steel Cage. I doubt this ends clean. They need to have the Cody vs. Goldust split at Elimination Chamber. This will give the feud a higher and more important stage to shine on. They do not need a random Raw. They need a Pay-Per-View and then start that feud for 5 weeks heading into WrestleMania.
The Shield defeated Daniel Bryan, Sheamus and Rey Mysterio. Smackdown ends with a great match between six guys who know what they are doing. I want to break down the future of each guy.
1. Sheamus- he needs to be used as a heel, a guy that brawls and kicks ass, without caring about anyone else. They have too many faces right now and he is too good in all facets to be wasted as the fourth and fifth face.
2. Rey Mysterio – Mysterio needs to be used as someone who gets a young guy over, or who works with Del Rio. The best thing for Rey is to be used in dosages. He gets too repetitive each week whenever he does the same thing over and over again.
3. Daniel Bryan- Match vs. Taker or Triple H. If not, headline WrestleMania in some sort of Fatal Four Way or Triple Threat with Batista/Lesnar/Orton
4. Roman Reigns- This guy needs to break free from The Shield and become a big face. He has money written all over him and is a guy who is beginning to get a feel for things. His ring work is very good and his personality inside and outside of the ring is beginning to show. The best is yet to come.
5. Dean Ambrose- Can we please get this guy to defend his championship? Anyone? Please?
6. Seth Rollins- Seth is an excellent worker. He would be a prime candidate if they wanted to give a contender's match at Mania, something along the lines of a Money in a Bank. He is too good in the ring and can work a microphone better than people give him credit for.
