So Punk can kick out of 2 AA's by John Cena the face of the company but loses clean to the comedy duo with one move? They could have ended this in a DQ and no one suffers, doesn't that make more sense? WWE champ doesn't look bad and neither do the tag champs. But thats logical booking and this is WWE we're talking about.
The same comedy duo that are the tag team champions and have been very effective as such. The whole point around the angle is that although D-Bry and Kane can't stand each other, they ARE a really good team. I'm not saying they should've beaten Punk (though it certainly doesn't upset me) but just calling them the comedy duo when they're legit isn't really fair.
Anywho, pretty terrible show. I can't believe they've wasted Heyman, Foley and JR on such a shitty angle. Hell, they've wasted Punk too. How much more are we gonna have to sit through someone telling Punk he should face Cena in the Cell for the respect he wants, for Punk to (rightfully) rebuttal that he shouldn't have to as he's already beaten Cena multiple times. No one looks good with this angle. Heyman's being wasted as a manager for the last guy on earth who needs a manager (yes, the both of them being dicks is fun, but it serves no purpose), Punk has legit gripes, but instead of expanding on them he has to play the same old generic coward heel role for heat and everyone else just looks stupid telling a guy who's proven himself many times over that he has to do it just one more time.
Dat Ryback though.
It's About Damn Time.
