Just imagine Colt Cabana a.k.a. Matt Classic a.k.a. Scott Colton sitting at 3am in good old Edinburgh, Scotland watching his friend CM Punk in New York at RAW shooting against The Authority, in name Triple H, and blasting out this at the end of his most recent Pipe Bomb:
“I don’t care if you put Marty De Rosa, Matt Classic, Colt Cabana, and Scott Colton on that side. It doesn’t matter how many bodies you put in this ring. Or how many obstacles you put in front of Daniel Bryan and CM Punk. Cause we’re gonna bury them all underground, baby!”
It’s quite cold in Scotland at the moment, you know, but for Punk to have another shoutout for his best buddy is really heart warming. And Colt might have felt the same:
Now that I have read it again it’s slightly cryptic with more meaning behind it than at first look. But expressing my thoughts on it would probably fill a whole book. So I leave it here and put on just one hint on the subject: last Wednesday Colt was at the WWE Performance Center to have another tryout as a WWE announcer. My advice here goes directly towards the WWE: kick out the Miz and replace him with Colt. If I had to choose between Miz TV and Colt TV it would be Colt TV all day long. Even on his worst imaginable days (which I can’t imagine) he would be better than The Mizzz at his best.
Perfect bridging to the next subject: The Mizzz … no, not really.
Now for the boring part of RAW: there was a hell lot of Randy Orton vs John Cena & The Authority that culminated into the so-called main event (it wasn’t) at the end of the show: Randy Orton & Alberto Del Rio vs John Cena & Big Show. No need for more words on that crap except for this: we will have to witness John Cena getting both titles, The WWE Championship and The World Heavyweight Championship, at TLC (i.e. tables, ladders and chairs match) in three weeks. Thanksss for this, WWE!
Next and first match of the evening was a great one: a 6-Man-Tag-Team match with The Shield vs Cody Rhodes, Goldust and Rey Mysterio. This match had everything and this had much to do with Rey Mysterio. He is tiny as hell but his moves are great and spectacular. Worth watching for a second and third time and even more. But the best part of it was that Dean Ambrose was able to win the watch versus Cody Rhodes. At this point already RAW was better than the whole lot of Survivor Series yesterday.
But that was it for a looong time really. Next was Mizzz TV, then Big E Langston & Mark Henry won easily (and within just five minutes) versus Curtis Axel & Ryback (the re-unified ex-Heyman-guys) plus another 7-vs-7 Diva Elimination match.
As the WWE told their viewers they then had voted (do you still have my WWE poll entry in mind, folks?) for a Hampden’s Hardcore Match between Dolph Ziggler and Damien Sandow. The both of them played music at RAW Country now they had tennis rackets, golf clubs and other lovely sports items to choose from to beat the hell out of their respective opponent. That was fun! And this time I mean it! Oh, and Sandow won it at the end.
Best part obviously followed afterwards with the match of DB & Punk versus The Wyatt Family in a 3-on-2 Handicap match. Together with Punk’s brilliant promo (thanks for the proof that you haven’t lost it!) this match was a lot better than yesterday. The Wyatt’s were disqualified at the end but didn’t care anyway as you may imagine. While Punk was laying on the ring floor to collect himself up from the beating DB was carried away by the Wyatt’s and – surprise, surprise – just when Punk was about to follow Roman Reigns speared him out of nothing (Punk’s head hit the outside floor very hard there – he already broke his skull once but breaking your skull once is just a flesh wound for you, right, WWE? And for all the people out there screaming that wrestling is just fake: YOU READ THAT RIGHT: SKULL FRACTURE!) and the complete Shield together performed a power bomb on him (and afterwards the three of them standing above Punk was Punk & The New Nexus standing above Randy Orton all over – NEW ideas, WWE?). Means: DB vs The Wyatt’s and Punk vs The Shield? So, Punk pipe bombing vs Triple H that he doesn’t like 3-on-2 handicap matches means both, DB and Punk are now punished with 3-on-1 handicap matches? And that finally culminates into another Punk vs Triple H feud?
Except for some possible Punk pipe bombs I won’t be impressed.
