Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler
Corbin and Ziggler do battle on Raw in what I thought was a really solid contest. Baron is in control and misses a big boot. Dolph dropkicks him into the crowd over the barricade. When we come back from break, Baron is in control. Dolph hits his patented splash into the corner and a neck breaker.
Dolph Ziggler gets caught with a few big clotheslines and then the assault is on. Ziggler hits a Fame-asser for a close 2 count. After a blocked Zig Zag, Baron gets a quick two count. Dolph hits a splash and some punches, but he is hit on the turnbuckle and End of Days finishes off the former champion.
As much as I hated Baron Corbin losing at WWE Payback, I do like what they are doing with him right now. Is him in a feud with Dolph Ziggler better than him squashing people like Apollo Crews? Absolutely, especially since he is such a nice throw back to a clubbing and physical heel. He does so many little things in the ring to change the pace of the match. Tonight was Baron’s best night and I do hope they get one more bout to showcase just a little more of what he can do against an athletic and speedy Dolph Ziggler.
What is better than R-Truth vs. Fandango?
Well, a fan of mine on Twitter asked me to rank things better than this. It is quite simple. There are many things better to watch on Raw than this.
- Extreme Expose
- Santino Marella playing the trombone
- Steven Amell doing anything
- Any NXT feud currently
- Any TNA feud currently
The list goes on and on, but this is ridiculous and a complete waste of time over the past two months. Why? Why is this prevalent each week where it gets 5-10 minutes of television time?
