It took a good ten years, but the prettiness of Randy Orton has finally been acknowledged on air. We're going to get Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at Night of Champions. Bryan and Orton had a face to face, which fell a little flat for me through no fault of either man. After all the effort that was expended to keep Bryan in check on Monday, he's now able to just walk out and have a chat with Orton in the middle of the ring with no one there to stop him?

Bryan beat Wade Barrett in a steel cage in the main event, polishing him off with a twisty powerbomb off the top rope that set up the Busaiku Knee. Using the move to win matches on TV should help cement it as Bryan's new impact finisher, as opposed to what happened to Dolph Ziggler's superkick late last year. Randy Orton was lying in wait after the match, perhaps under the ring, and he hit an RKO on a celebrating Bryan to avenge his embarrassment in the opening segment.

In other matches, Darren Young beat Antonio Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler beat Big E Langston, Curtis Axel beat Cody Rhodes and challenged CM Punk to a match on Raw, Mark Henry and the Big Show beat 3MB before being taunted by the Shield, and Alberto Del Rio beat Christian.

Did cheating go awry to cause Cesaro to lose?

I love that Daniel Bryan can start a "Yes" chant simply by panting and moving his head. The guy is super hot right now.

The "Yes" and "No" chants are so simple, yet a brilliant way to involve the crowd and get them invested.

Not to my recollection, no. Young won clean with the Gut Check. I don't remember if Swagger hopped up on the apron at some point as a distrction, he might have, but he certainly didn't hit Cesaro by accident or anything like that.

Young was in the ascendancy so Swagger got onto the apron, but Titus O'Neill took care of him. Then Young beat Cesaro clean with his Gut Check. Millions of dollars!

They blew off Ziggler/Langston in a hurry, in terms of both program length and match length. Not to drive this into the ground, but everything since the well-done Ziggler/Del Rio double turn match has been a pretty big waste of a hot heel group that was just getting started and breakups that would've been bigger down the road.

p.s. Ryback was a joy in that skit and completely in the right! "Favor from the big guy!"

I am REALLY digging Bully Ryback. It's amazing that he finally found a personality -after- his main event push was over and most people considered him a lost cause. He's becoming a very nasty, easily hated heel without having to wrestle a match. He'd be a perfect foil for an underdog type in the midcard (say, Sami Zayn when he shows up?)

My only problem with this is that, at a certain point, it just feels like Ryback's spinning his wheels. The character is now fully realized, and I keep waiting for it to go somewhere. Is a wrestler going to stand up to him? Is he going to pick a fight with a guy who won't back down? I just want something to happen with this that leads to a match.

I mean what the hell, you're going to be backstage at a wrestling show without knowing who anybody is, and ask the guy whose name is on his shirt what his name is? At least his kid got to see him look like a dope on TV!

Randy Orton wouldn't be a bad choice for IC champ, but only if Trips is going to have the belt past Unforgiven. It would totally work for the Evolution gimmick. The champ, and his young apprentice the IC champ, with old man Flair at their side.
