WWE RAW 12/03/12 Review.
What did this reviewer think when he watched WWE RAW 12/03/12? The show was not necessarily bad, but really just had a lot of stuff that there was there.
This John Cena against Dolph Ziggler feud is rather lopsided. Cena beat Ziggler yet again in that tag team match. Mr. McMahon pops up, and convinces Vickie to make the latest one on one match with Dolph Ziggler and John Cena into a Ladder Match, with the Money in the Bank Briefcase on the line. Ziggler has to win this one, right? Cena’s not exactly losing if it’s a ladder match.
The Lie Detector segment at the end on MizTV was what it was. There was a bait and switch of sorts. Ryback’s not winning the title, his time should have been two months ago if they were pulling the trigger.
As for the matches, a decent showing tonight for the most part. Sheamus and John Cena against Dolph Ziggler and the Big Show was a good star studded tag team match. The fatal four way match for the United States Championship was pretty good. Del Rio against Sin Cara had its moments of greatness.
Brad Maddox got another chance to get a contract, but unfortunately for him his opponent was Randy Orton. That did not lead to a good showing for him.
Damien Sandow and Santino Marella was such an obvious match, and dynamic. Sandow got the obvious win. I’m thinking that Cody’s injury likely may have caused some long term plans to get derailed with him.
This entire Shield thing is interesting. We seem to be setting up a match between them and Team Hell No, which would be a perfectly acceptable tag team match. Rollins against Daniel Bryan one on one for at least fifteen minutes, please, because they had some awesome matches in ROH.
So RAW was what it was. TLC is coming around the corner, so we’ll see how that pans out as 2012 draws to a close, and the road to Wrestlemania 29 kicks up.
