Match of the Year Candidate?: The King Vs The Miz
2) John Cena isn't going anywhere; and this is actually a positive! Think about it, what is worse John Cena or John Cena pretending (and failing) to be someone else in a mask. Juan Cena, Cena's Mexican cousin or some rubbish like that, has started appearing on WWE's house shows and it would take a complete retard (*Cough* Michael Cole *cough*) to think it actually was. WWE would be the laughing stock of the wrestling world if they decide to bring this gimmick to their A-show. So lets just hope Juan Cena gets deported sometime soon and we can keep good ol' John Cena instead (never thought i would say that?).
3) CM Punk is the commentator for the IWC. Everything he says is either poking fun at his other commentators or tell the fans at home how it really is. The night started off with another dig at Riley's DUI, followed by a King Kofi Kingston joke and then the best of all about Cena smashing Slater through the Table. "Cena, this isn't the Spanish announce table" pure genius. He was on top form and if he wasn't such a good wrestler i would want him to take up announcing full-time!
4) WWE uses older wrestlers so much better than TNA does.
If you had missed the past couple of Raws and was told that the main event was the The Miz Vs Jerry 'The King' Lawler for the WWE Championship you would never believe it. But that is the TRUTH. The King challenged The Miz to a match about half way through the show and the anonymous General Manager confirmed it as a TLC match. Now i bet everyone at home was thinking WTF are the creative team thinking?
TNA has been using their 'Golden Oldies' since Hogan took over and it really shows that some wrestlers have to draw a line at some point in their careers, especially EV 2.0 and Ric Flair. But WWE does what the TNA can't and that is by choosing wrestlers who are old but can still put on fantastic shows. This was highlighted at last years Wrestlemania when Ricky Steamboat wowed the Texan crowd with a 5 star performance against Chris Jericho. Now i know Lawler wasn't as good a wrestler as Ricky was but he was still pretty darn good back in the day and he really showed it with his performance. He may not of performed any high impact moves but he still showed that he has the charisma and quality to carry a good match. The Miz was spectacularly average and showed us exactly why he shouldn't be the WWE Champion. I mean the fans can't even make up their minds whether they like him or they hate him which is a definite sign that he is not ready for this gigantic push. The match as a whole though was sent straight to 'vintage' when Michael Cole got involved. That man is solid gold when it comes to drawing Heat and being all-round amazing in the WWE, much like Vickie Guerrero. Watching Jerry Knock some sense into him was a sight i believe many fans all around the world were savouring.
Overall the match was thoroughly enjoyable, well for current Raw standards, and I definitely wouldn't mind seeing Lawler in the ring again. But I would like to emphasise that i 'wouldn't mind seeing him wrestle again' Not every week like a certain other company does...
