Well I'm going to start with The Miz vs John Morrison - Falls Count Aywhere for the WWE Championship - Raw - Jan 3rd 2011 - ***3/4

great way to start off the year, very early doors I know, but could end up being WWE's TV MOTY

The Miz should enjoy the time that he sits on top of my MOTY list... ***1/2-***3/4 for his match last night. At least the bar has been set.

Is WWE finally doing the Miz/Morrison feud that I've been waiting for since they split after I stop following the company completely?

Miz v. Morrison **** super fun match, great way to kick off the year.

Also, the cage match last night was really good.

Miz/Morrison from Jan.3 Raw is worth a watch. Miz's best title defense, Morrison might be getting pushed to the side in the near future though. Which is sad because Orton/Miz at the Rumbe most likely won't be as good.

Miz/Morrison was a great match. Maybe a bit too spot happy in the beginning but some good stuff after the first commercial break.

Nothing too exciting form the lucha world yet.

I think I'm going to be a bit more picky about what I watch this year. I'm not going to strain myself into watching everything but I will watch more than what I did last year.

The Miz vs. John Morrison - Raw 1/3/11
So yeah, I thought this rocked. It's right up there with Miz/Danielson as Miz's best match imo and although I can see a lot of people pointing to Morrison as the star of the match (and he was great), Miz more than held his own. He was especially good at telling a story with his expressions selling fear, desperation and false bravado at different points. Some of the nearfalls down the stretch were great, the action never let up, the crowd helped make it feel like a big deal and Michael Cole put it over the top ("WAY TO GO MIZ!" after he kicked out of Starship Pain was awesome). Great start to 2011.

Big Show vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler - SmackDown 1/7/11
It's not a legit MOTYC by any means, hell it isn't even the best WWE TV match this week (that goes to Miz/Morrison), but if you have 15 minutes to kill I'd recommend watching this. It's basically Big Show dominating kids who know they can't beat him so they have to work together to take him out of the equation. Rhodes, McIntyre and Ziggler do a good job making him look like a beast and the spots that did keep Show down for a while were pretty cool. The finish is great too.

Personally, I thought the 2of 3 falls match was better than the fatal fourway

This sounds like great fun. Looking forward to it.

The 4 way was not only better than Miz/Morrison but better than any other TV match from 2010 imo. Wrote this about it.

Dolph Ziggler vs Big Show vs Drew McIntyre vs Cody Rhodes - Smackdown 07.01.2011
Woah nelly this was brilliant. Absolutely loved Show's performance in the MITB match and this isn't far behind it. viva said a while ago around the time of the MITB match that Big Show vs the world may be the best formula around atm and it comes up again here and again it's brilliant. It's a shame that they cant make a less established monster like Zeke perhaps look as dominant as Show does in this. Start of the match with Show just literally dominating everyone was really fun, loved Drew not being able to get in the ring and him getting more and more pissed off and being kept on the outside. All 3 heel's selling was spot on too which just added further into making Show look like a genuine monster and not a big guy who's easily beaten. The transition spot that took Show out of the picture was awesome. Show's so dominant that the only way he's losing this is if he makes a mistake which he does and then all 3 heels join together to try and take him out for good. Looked really cool too. What looked even better though was the 2nd spot to keep Show down on the outside where Drew launched Cody off the top rope into him. Came out of nowhere and looked great. The transition between Show going from fun giant beating the bad guys up to pissed off monster with a chip on his shoulder was beautiful. Then you get the random interference segment from Barrett which didn't end up as bad as I thought it would. Barrett vs Taker seems a lock for Mania now that he's seemingly on SD now after being booted out of Nexus. I guess Show is just a filler feud until Taker comes back and deals with Kane before Mania. Saw a lot of people on WF complain about Show kicking out of all 3 finishers after Barrett's attack and normally if any old guy did it I would be too but this is a fucking giant. If anyone should be allowed to kick out of all this it should be this guy. All 3 of them were awesome near falls too and totally believable after the run in. Ending was perfect too with Dolph realising after all Show had took there was no way he'd be able to beat so he suckered Cody into his own finisher which was enough to finish him off because you see Cody is a tiny fragment of the sixe of Big Show so it's going to take much less to keep him down!

Really glad that Ziggler won, presuming that he'll get the shot on PPV but I assumed that with Morrison so who knows. Ziggler and Edge had a great TV match last year so this should be really good at minimum. Ziggler's for me the heel equivalent of Danielson at this point where you can put him in there with virtually anyone and he can have a watchable match with them. Seems as though the Danielson match was a real breakthrough for Ziggler too because he's been pushed really well and more importantly, really consistently since that match. Was obvious as fuck when Ziggler was entered into the match that he'd be winning because the only other viable option was the face and that wasn't likely to happen. Really enjoyed how the previous segment transitioned perfectly into the next one. Vickie abusing her power was great too, in both segments. Even more convinced now that Ziggler will win MITB and a world title from it this year. ***1/2 at least.

Miz vs Morrison from RAW and the fatal four way on smackdown where both great especialy Miz/Morrison.

Ziggler is getting pushed and i really like it, i agree that Danielson has basicaly made Ziggler because without that match he might not be being pushed as hard, i guess people saw what he was actually capable of because i think almost every match since he has looked great in.

Raw

Falls Count Anywhere
The Miz vs. John Morrison- ***3/4
Fucking loved this match!! A lot of creative spots and really great near falls. Without a doubt The Miz's best match (with his match with Daniel Bryan being a close second) and a great tv match that everybody should check out.

Cage Match
Randy Orton vs. Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett- ***

Smackdown

Last Man Standing Match
Edge vs. Kane- ***1/4
Like a lot of people I did not like the first half of the match which was pretty much both men slowly brawling through the crowd. The second half picked up and had some really close counts, and great enough spots to keep my attention. The Last Man Standing stipulation helped disguise Kane's limited abilities and this was a good way to start the show.

Big Show vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Drew McIntyre- ***
Wow, I really did not expect this match to be as fun as it was. I liked how everybody teamed up on Big Show in the beginning. A really fun four way match which picks up a bit at the end.

Two Out of Three Falls
Alberto Del Rio vs. Rey Mysterio- **3/4
I hate Iron Man and 2 out of 3 falls matches, because half of the time companies fail to really stick with the stipulation and they usually make the falls wayy to close together. This match really never clicked, and it definitely did not feel like a feud ender. Now hopefully Alberto Del Rio can move to bigger things and Mysterio can feud with someone else.
