Did not like the ending at all, Bryan had the No Lock in for a good 30 seconds, then ADR no-sold it and applied the Cross Armbreaker to a fast-tapping submission specialist. ADR cut a quick promo afterward, then Orton popped up behind him and ultimately RKO’d Ricardo on the announce table.
Like a true enhancement talent. Submission expert who can't tap anyone out, and gets tapped out quickly. What a parody gimmick. Guess he's a submission specialist because he's so easy to tap out. Joke character.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?
