The Main Events
Daniel Bryan defeated Antonio Cesaro in the match of the night. I loved every part of this match. It is a thing of beauty to watch two guys know exactly what to do in the ring. The comfort level between Cesaro and Bryan is excellent. The trust is there through every move, which is why this match was special to me. Cesaro was able to dead lift Bryan and hit a back drop, which set up a massive European Uppercut. With Cesaro in control, Bryan rallied back and was able to kick down his opponent. Daniel Bryan took full control and would pick up the victory when he reverses a swing and spins over Cesaro's head to lock in the Yes! Lock. Wonderful, simply wonderful. After the match, Cesaro hits the Neutralizer onto Bryan and Kane comes out to chokeslam Daniel Bryan.
Kane Needs to Mask Up
It is time. I am tired of seeing Kane like this every single week. He is not interesting to me whatsoever. He looks horrible in a suit and even worse with his receding hairline. I want to see Kane as he was intended to be: a monster with a mask and one of the most talented "big men" in the business. What does he have to gain by being in this spot? He needs to pull an Abyss and just snap. It always seems to be a mistake when the mask comes off. Kane masked up could really help younger guys get over, like a Reigns or Langston.
Randy Orton defeated Christian in a match we saw 20 times in 2011-2012. Although it was very similar, I still enjoy two professionals work it out. Christian came close time and time again in the match, hitting a spear for a two count. The spear does not look as good coming from someone the build of Christian. He seems like a guy that needs to add some submission moves to his arsenal. Nobody buys the fact that he can overpower Orton, or anybody for that matter. Orton calls for a RKO, but Christian counters with a backslide before setting up a Killswitch. Orton pushes him into the corner so Christian tries to connect with a springboard uppercut. He gets caught in air for an RKO. Good spot and good finish for a night that had excellent wrestling matches.
