Watching Raw now and I agree with Cody, Bryan/Orton was pretty boring. They played up No DQ being in Orton's favour yet he somehow thought it was a good idea to try to wrestle Bryan at the beginning. Bizarre. The stuff post-dive was OK, but Orton came off like a heel capitalizing on an injury and then helped Bryan get up later. Bizarre again. Wasn't terribly fun to watch altogether. You have to hope Bryan's injury is a work. If not then it comes at the worst fucking possible time. Seems like a work all things considered, but there's a huge amount of paranoia in me.
Cesaro v. Regal was really enjoyable for two minutes and fuck me Cesaro looks like the best wrestler in the company even with those limitations. Squashing Regal like that is pretty cruel, but yeah, I liked the match a fair bit. I just wish Cesaro's heat hadn't been watered down recently. Taking the US title off of him really hurt. I hope with this Mantel allegiance Cesaro at the very least gets a chance at decently lengthy matches. Even on NXT. Or, fuck, even with bad opponents. Dude worked with Miz, Orton, Khali, Ryback and Kofi and had good stuff with all of them. HELL, the Kofi match is probably the best or second best WWE match I've seen all year (not been paying attention, admittedly, but shit...it was an *amazing* carry job by Claudio).
I made a list of who I thought my top 10 favourite wrestlers of all time would be, and I said Mark Henry would probably be #12. Pre'sure he's #1 after that segment.
