No one's done one yet? Well, I'll get something up. I watched the show yesterday so I'm going off memory, don't expect any transcriptions or the like!

Show opened with Sheamus out for an interview. He recapped Alberto Del Rio becoming the #1 Contender last week, and showed video of himself laying Del Rio out from behind after the match had ended. Sheamus said that he wanted to send Del Rio a message, to let him know that despite being an aristocrat who's used to being able to buy anything he wants, he'll have to work to earn the World Heavyweight Championship. The interruption came from David Otunga, who took issue with Sheamus' non-apology last week. He ordered Sheamus to apologise, an order that Sheamus did not take too kindly to. That led to this gem from Otunga, "You may be the whitest bulb, but you're certainly not the brightest". Before things could deteriorate more, Alberto Del Rio was out in his latest $125000 car (a Bentley).

Del Rio said that Otunga didn't have to worry about Sheamus' non-apology, because at No Way Out he was going to lose his title. Otunga seemed pleased by the confidence, but said that he didn't want to wait that long for Sheamus to pay. At the order of John Laurinaitis, Sheamus would be in action tonight against an opponent of Del Rio's choosing. Sheamus said that he had an apology to give to Otunga, then promptly hit him with the Brogue Kick as Del Rio bailed out and fled. Sin Cara returns next!

Sin Cara vs. Heath Slater: Heath Slater was already in the ring. Sin Cara didn't vault into the ring as usual, instead sliding under the bottom rope and springing off the opposite ropes in time with his pyro. Sin Cara was wearing red and white, but the blue and gold lighting was still in effect for the match. Sin Cara dominated most of the match and won with his tilt-a-whirl headscissors into a facebuster.

Damien Sandow vs. Ezekial Jackson: Sandow was displeased to be matched up with another ignoramus and tried to walk out on the match, but Jackson cut him off and beat him down in the corner. Sandow slipped out of a Torture Rack attempt and his a Russian Leg Sweep, rolling through back to his feet afterwards. An elbowdrop with a flourish followed, and an attempt by Jackson to come back was cut short with the straitjacket neckbreaker for an easy win, with Sandow even posing thoughtfully during the cover. The celebratory cartwheel followed.

Backstage, Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez discussed who to pick to challenge Sheamus. They were interrupted by Dolph Ziggler, who nominated himself, saying he wanted to make a name for himself at the World Champion's expense. Del Rio was impressed by the "gringo's" guts and said he had the match. Ryback is in action next!

Ryback vs. Two Alabama Jobbers: Don't remember their names, sorry! Like last week, this was a heaping helping of squash. Ryback added D'Lo's old Sudden Impact move to his repetoire, and finished the two jobbers with the same double-stacked running fisherman's drop that he used last week. Feed him more!

Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus: Vickie started to introduce Ziggler by claiming that she'd used her leverage to get him this match, but Ziggler just stalked out past her without his entrance music, grabbing the mic from her to cut her off and say he was here to beat Sheamus and nothing more. A lengthy, competitive match followed, with Ziggler holding his own, and Sheamus' hair selling the match quite well (thanks to whoever mentioned that on this board earlier for me to steal!). Zigger hit an X-Factor off the top rope for a very near fall at one point. Sheamus eventually hit White Noise and went for the Brogue Kick, but Swagger ran out for the distraction, getting up on the apron. Ziggler went for the Fame-Asser but got shoved into Swagger, letting Sheamus hit the Brogue Kick for the win. The announcers played up Sheamus enjoying the match and respecting the fight Ziggler had put up.

CM Punk was interviewed backstage by Matt Striker. He talked about his match later with Kane, saying that Kane was a scary opponent but that he wasn't about to back down, and that he'd put the devil's favourite demon to sleep.

Titus O'Neil and Darren Young vs. Zack Ryder and Santino Marella: In an inset promo, O'Neil and Young revealed that they wanted to call themselves the Prime Time Playas. Santino was isolated and worked over by the pair, to the point where a frustrated Ryder charged into the ring only to be disposed of by Young. As Young tried to press the advantage on Santino, he instead got rolled up for the flash pin. As Ryder and Marella celebrated on the stage, first fist-pumping and then doing the trombone, Big Show emerged from behind them to lay waste to them. Marella got thrown into the giant WWE logo, and Ryder was taken down the ramp and beaten up. The steel steps were introduced, and though Ryder tried to get a flurry in, it was cut off and he was bodyslammed onto the steps. The steps were then brought up to the stage where Marella was beginning to recover. Big Show applied a step-assisted Colossal Clutch onto Marella, then delivered a knockout blow. He proceeded to yell at the crowd, asking if they were smiling now.

Backstage, AJ was wearing her CM Punk gear, but was approached by Daniel Bryan. Bryan questioned her allegiance to Punk, saying that Punk didn't care about her. He quickly clarified to say that he didn't care about her either, anymore, but he did once. He brushed gently at her hair as he said that, then said that Punk would never care about her the same way before leaving.

Cody Rhodes vs. Tyson Kidd: No entrance for Kidd. Christian was on commentary for this match, firing back at Rhodes for his comments the previous week. A two minute special, with Rhodes hitting Cross-Rhodes for the win. Christian and Rhodes argued with each other post-match.

CM Punk vs. Kane for the WWE Championship: Neither Bryan nor AJ were out for the start of the match. Punk had the early advantage, focusing on Kane's arm which was softened up the previous week by Bryan. Kane got the advantage, and AJ came down to lend moral support. The match picked up as both Punk and Kane started hitting their signature moves. After getting Kane down, Punk went up for the Savage elbow, but AJ hopped up on the apron and yelled to get his attention, to warn him that Bryan was running in. Punk took advantage to jump off on Bryan instead and wiped him out. On getting back into the ring, Punk countered a Kane attack with a kick to the head, then hit the Savage elbow for a very close 2 count. He went for the GTS, but Kane was too heavy to lift. Kane set up for the chokeslam, but Bryan came flying in off the top rope with a split-legged dropkick to both men, drawing the.. no contest? He did hit both men at the same time!

As Kane fell out of the ring, Bryan went to work on Punk, laying in his kicks and screaming "Yes!" all the while, as the fans happily got into it with him. Punk found an opening to try to counter, but before he could Kane reappeared and laid out both Punk and Bryan with a double-chokeslam. This led to John Laurinaitis making his first appearance of the night, saying that at No Way Out Punk's match would be a Triple Threat. He didn't actually say who the participants in said match would be, but it was assumed that it would be Punk defending against Bryan and Kane. AJ checked on Punk as the show went off the air.

I am officially OK with Kane's involvement in this angle. The commentators Friday focused on the 14 years which have passed since he held that title (as opposed to the belt he had in 2010). His work on this show was fine, and Punk adjusted his moveset to push Kane as a beast (giving him two consecutive turnbuckle running knees, for instance). If a big guy was gonna be used, at least it's not Tensai or Clay or Ryback. It's Kane, and Kane can work.

Big Show again cements his Big Bully gimmick by trashing cartoony faces. It's an angle targeted right for the kids, yet he's giving big beatdowns. Instead of merely headbutting folks into oblivion, he's throwing them into the furniture, taking his time and drawing out the carnage. Unfortunately, Zach Ryder is becoming a scream queen.

Heath Slater looks ... bigger? More developed? Not better, mind you, just physically different.

If this week's Dolph matches are to sow seeds for a face turn, I'm ALL FOR IT. But credit Sheamus for becoming a legitimately good worker since turning face, normally a time when a moveset is reduced to the finishing sequence. He's a big guy, and he took that top-rope mugshot with gusto. He came to play.

Why give Titus and Darren a team name (The Primetime Players) and then have them lose? Did Zack and Santino need that win to stay respectable? SANTINO AND ZACK?

I hope Cody and Christian tear the house down at the PPV, but this title angle is boring me. And I usually like both guys bunches and bunches.

Faces aren't supposed to bump like he does, so then what will be his appeal? After all, isn't that one of the bigger reasons people cheer for him, because he's a ZOMG~!!1 bump-machine?



This is all serious business.

I see the point, but if he demands to be showcased and then loses a match because his golden retriever of a tag partner interferes badly, what do you do with him? That's a face turn, right? I mean, you can't turn Vickie and Swagger.

And I hold that Sheamus has sold moves much better as a face, especially that turnbuckle move from Ziggler.

You know, face or heel, as long as they decide to do something aggressive with Ziggler, I'll be happy.

I was here to say the same thing. If you can get past the fact that it's Kane being inserted in a Punk/Bryan match, everything they've done to set up the threeway has been strong, and he worked hard in the match with Punk. For now I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that they're involving Kane for a reason, whether it's to space out their next singles match, to take the belt off of Punk without beating him, or to do a spot where one or both of them are put in a position to save AJ from Kane (Punk does it at personal expense and loses, or Bryan does it disingenuously), or all three.

Santino and Zack had to win because they were being obliterated. Up to down, happy to sad, something to nothing.

I'm not sure I get this comment. HBK was a bump machine and he never had a problem being a face.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Revenge of the Sith = one thumb up from me. Fuck shit. I want to tittie fuck your ass.

They still use "ruthless agression" a lot with Cena on SD.
