I was gonna order it, then I learned I'll be working out of town so that went down the shitter. Which sucks because I'm like, really liking this card.
- Orton/Bryan has so much potential to be a top tier HIAC match, or least a top tier one from the PG era. If Orton is FINALLY able to figure out he's a heel and needs to work super aggressive against the much smaller Bryan, then it can be great. There's so many cool things they'd be able to pull off and make the match memorable. Imagine Bryan going for his signature suicide dive to the outside and he misses and goes head first into the cell.
Imagine Bryan diving off for the headbutt attempt, but Orton catches him in mid-air for the RKO.
Imagine all the shit they can do with steel steps and tables. T-bone suplexes, middle rope DDTs, superplexes and super back-suplexes, etc. Just give me SOMETHING better than their last two encounters. Unfortunately there's probably gonna be Big Show and/or Triple H shenanigans.
- Cena/Del Rio should be so good if Del Rio continues to work aggressive and attacks Cena's left arm. As long as Cena's able to sell it well and he doesn't go into SuperCena mode for the finish, I have confidence in this one. Crowd's gonne be red hot too.
- Shield/Usos/Rhodes Bros is gonna be madness. Absolutely pure fucking madness. Bodies will be flying everywhere, there' gonna be disaster kicks, superkicks, flying knees, spears, top rope splashes, shit's gonna be wild. I REALLY wish it was elimination, but I'm sure one fall will still be a great match.
- What's the rest of the card?
Really though, I don't care about Punk vs. Ryback/Heyman in the Cell at all. AJ/Brie just happened last month. Langston/Axel is on the pre-show so yeah. Is Real Americans vs. Los Matadores official? That could be fun time filler.
