Re: Raw 12/10/12 Discussion: Muppets, Mustaches and Mayhem! LOOK OUT!
The first 3 minutes that had the Ziggler promo
Ziggler's work against Sheamus
Claudio being a beast and putting on another awesome match
Sandow and Cody's mic work on Miz TV
Punk and Heyman's promo
Very limited Daniel Bryan presence
The rest of the show
So that was...what, 25 minutes I enjoyed this week? Better than the usual 5 minutes, but this show is in serious trouble. Aside from Ziggler's growing as a character, and Cesaro/Sandow/Cody continuing to work their way up the roster, everything seems so fucking stale right now. The Shield are pretty cool, but its been the same thing for weeks now. Its alright, but doesn't feel like it has the impact they're expecting. Its not monumental or must see, just "pretty good". Sheamus, Miz, Cena and fuck, especially AJ are so terrible right now. Big Show is in this perpetual lull, but I at least am finding him tolerable (his promo was really subpar tonight, though). Vince and Vickie have awful chemistry together. It felt like such a "same old shit" show-we got so many matches we've seen a million times (Ziggler/Sheamus, Show/Cena), and then the fuckery with Brad Maddox in the atrocious AJ vs Vickie match AT THE 10PM QUARTER. This show is so empty right now. The days of the can't miss Raw are long gone.
