Night of Champions 2012
The Miz v Cody Rhodes v Rey Mysterio v Sin Cara
-- Not my cup of tea. Basically a collection of moves. Some looked cool, some looked like shit. Best part was the exchange between Miz and Cody. Sin Cara is awful. JBL on commentary helped. If they do Cara/Rey at Mania it could blow.
Kofi Kingston & R-Truth v Daniel Bryan & Kane
-- This was seriously entertaining. Not a whole lot to it in terms of actual in-ring work but the Kane/Bryan shtick was a ton of fun to watch. HUG IT OUT + I AM THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS > anything Kofi and Truth have ever done.
Antonio Cesaro v Zack Ryder
-- Dug this quite a bit as a showcase for Cesaro. His moveset is swanky and Ryder's comeback was good too. Never paid much attention to Ryder as a worker before but he seems like the type of guy who's good at eating offense, taking a beating and timing his hope spots/combacks. Cesaro's uppercut
JBL had a great line about bicuspids.
Dolph Ziggler v Randy Orton
-- Good match. For whatever reason I couldn't get into it as much as I wanted to but everything they did was sound and the finishing stretch was great. Liked how Dolph avoided Orton's DDT twice before Randy finally hit it on the outside. The barricade bump by Ziggler right before that was awesome. Nice finish too.
Layla v Eve
-- Why was Layla smiling constantly at the start of the match? Assuming it had something to do with her character. Anyway, on to the match. It was actually legitimately good. Eve was a total bitch in it.
Best divas match I've seen in ages. If I had to choose between re-watching this or the IC title 4 way I'd pick this every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
Sheamus v Alberto Del Rio
-- Another good match. I wasn't paying full attention at all times but I could tell it was good. By the time the finishing stretch came around I was completely into it. Really starting to warm to Sheamus as one of the best workers in the company. His babyface turn has been a huge success.
CM Punk v John Cena
-- Excellent main event, just like their other two PPV matches. I can understand people not liking the finish and/or thinking the finishers were overdone but it all worked fine to me. Maybe could've done with one less GTS since Punk busted out the Rock Bottom too (which was pretty fucking awesome and got a huge reaction) but whatever, I saw it as them both wanting the win so badly that nothing was enough to put away the other guy. They have great chemistry. Heyman added to it as well. Has Cena ever done a suicide dive before? That was cray. This is probably the weakest of their PPV trilogy but that's not a knock on it because all three of them are fantastic.
Thought this was a great show. Liked everything on it except for the opener and Punk/Cena was the GREAT match it needed to go with a bunch of good/fun matches.
