Hey guys hope all is well. To say the least the WWE Over The Limit Paperview was subpar to say the least. It's funny how a show can get better and better with each match and then totally fail with the mainevent.
R-Truth vs Rey Mysterio
Well booked in my opinion. No reason for Rey to win this match and the win for R-Truth will definitely elevate him as a star. He stepped up and is progressing very well as a heel and the no music thing is cool as well. Its funny how he went from rapping him theme, to no music at all. I honestly can see him being on the level as Cm Punk as a heel. Kudos to both Rey & Truth.
Wade Barrett vs Ezekiel Jackson, IC Championship Match:
Also a well booked match. I'm a big Ezekiel fan but I honestly don't think he's ready for singles gold at this moment. I do believe this match was boring but thats because of the lackluster build. The Corre and Nexus thing has finally reached its downfall. I honestly see them both being disbanded within a month.
Sin Cara vs Chavo Guerrero:
Great match but not as great as I thought it would be. I feel the dimmed lights for Sin Cara matches is just the most stupid thing. Dimmed lights means that the person who's lights it is will win the match. This is what they used to do for Kane back when he debuted in 97. Kane wrestled with dimmed red lighting in arena which meant he was going to win that match in pretty quick fashion.
I don't think the match was the lucha libre style match we expected. One thing that is true about lucha libre matches are that they are high flying back and forth type matches. This match wasn't back and forth because Sin Cara controlled the whole match. Chavo didn't have enough spots and a chance to deliver his moveset as much as we would like. I was expecting a Classic WCW type cruiserweight match similar to the classic Rey Mysterio vs Juventude type matches they would put on.
Tag Team Championship: Cm Punk & Mason Ryan vs Kane & The Big Show
First off, we gotta give props to Kane & The Big Show's in ring work over the years. They have been two of the most gifted in ring giants over the past 15 years or so. Along with the Undertaker, they are the greats when it comes to pure giants.
I felt this match was pretty solid. I would so love to see Cm Punk as a singles superstar because this Nexus crap is bull. I think its time to start pleasing Cm Punk, its like the WWE Creative team are forcing him to quit.
Divas Championship: Kelly Kelly vs Brie Bella
I actually enjoyed this one. My only thing is that Kelly Kelly looks like too much of a nice girl when she wrestles. It looks weird when she's actually dominating her opponent because she's such a sweetheart. She reminds me too much of Torrie Wilson but I like the girl. Solid match but the "Twin Magic Switcharoo" is getting old.
World Heavyweight Championship: Christian vs Randy Orton
THIS STOLE THE FREAKIN SHOW. The way the fans turned on Orton was priceless. Definitely one of the best WWE matches in the past 5 years if you ask me. I really thought Christian was going to win this.
I thought the only reason they took the belt from Christian so quick is so he could build a short program with Orton and win it back in a classic match at Over the Limit, thus making him look like a more credible champion.
They did just the opposite. I think that Christian has proven that he can draw money as the World Champ but for some reason they wouldn't let him win it back. Having Christian as the World Champ makes us "Attitude Era" fans satisfied. Having Orton and Cena as both World & WWE Champ is so played out right now. The WWE had an opportunity to please at least half of the fans by haing the belt on Christian's waist.
But after this great performance, I can see Christian turning heel and winning it back.
Kiss My Foot Match: Jerry Lawler vs Michael Cole
WWE's PG Rating has took us from "Kiss My Ass" to "Kiss My Foot" matches lol call it how you wanna. This pretty much went how I expected. I honestly wanted Eve to put her feet in Cole's mouth. It beats seeing an old man's feet lol. I also expected Swagger to come out and turn face and drag Cole back in the ring instead of Bret Hart but Hart's cool too. I'm shocked that the WWE still uses Hart after his huge amount of tweets he makes bashing WWE's bookers. It was nice seeing Jr and I hope this Michael Cole mess is over. Cole however is a great heel and garners alot of heet and I love it.
WWE Championship: The Miz W/Alex Riley vs John Cena
Where in the blue hell do I begin? It was sooooooooo many ways to have Cena retain the belt in a more entertaining way.
I thought since this was pretty much a handicap match, it would've been awesome if Zack Ryder came out and wrestled with Cena to even the odds seeing as they have been backstage buddies.
Why can't someone rescue Cena for once? Why couldn't they just let Zack Ryder save Cena? It is sooooo boring watching Cena taking on two men by himself and winning alll the time.
What does that do for the Miz's credibility if he couldn't beat Cena with a partner. When Miz said "I Quit" I automatically felt sorry for everyone who ordered this garbage.
Horrible booking, the WWE had a great opportunity to inolve Zack Ryder in a high profile match but dropped the ball.
Like I said earlier, the PPV was actually pretty solid until the mainevent. Way to ruin a good PPV WWE.
