World Heavyweight Title Triple Threat Match in a Steel Cage
Daniel Bryan retains against Big Show and Mark Henry via cage escape

  • Daniel Bryan comes out first. Boo! Champions should always come out last.

Great Puma: Good but short opener. Really interesting finish with Daniel Bryan hanging from Big Show’s right arm on the edge of the cage. St. Louis was pretty amped with the Daniel Bryan chants.

Mascara de Fuego: Good opener, Bryan worked his balls off and took beatings from both Henry and Show. Glad they kept the title on Bryan for at least ONE pay per view!

8-Diva Tag Team Match

Beth Phoenix, Natalya, & the Bella Twins defeat Eve Torres, Tamina, Kelly Kelly & Alicia Fox via Beth’s Glam Slam on Kelly Kelly

  • They just set up high spot where Kelly Kelly does a plancha from the top turnbuckle to the Divas on the outside.

Mascara de Fuego: Whatever that shit went too long.

Great Puma: It was what it was. Everything was clean, nobody botched anything. Glad Beth got the clean pin.

Zack is at the arena sporting a back brace and rolling around in a wheel chair. Eve tells John Laurinaitis off.

John Cena and Kane battle to a double countout

  • Kane fought out of an STF and Cena did a You Can’t See Me fist drop from the top turnbuckle. Back and forth battle.
  • Kane knocked Cena out in the back and then dragged Zack Ryder to the ring. Kane Tombstons Zack as Eve begs for mercy. Cena comes in for the save but gets chokeslammed for his efforts.

Great Puma: Decent match. Kane countered everything but still couldn’t put Cena away. The storyline continues.

Mascara de Fuego: Thought it was a decent fast paced match. They are doing wonders for putting Kane back into the spotlight as a SUPER monster. Not sure what this does for Cena in the long run but right now Kane is the one shining out of this feud.

Funkasaurus Brodus Clay defeats Drew McIntyre via High Cross Body

  • Brodus Clay comes out in Celtic green. There’s a Jurassic Park-ish “Funkasaurus” logo on his booty. Awesome.

Mascara de Fuego: Short and sweet like Puma called. Dude is catching on AND he got a chant!? Fuck man, I guess the WWE does know best. Hope Clay will be in the Rumble still.

Great Puma: Great stuff! I just hope they have the Funkasaurus in the Rumble. A little disappointed that Drew got in the most offense out of all of Clay’s opponents so far.

WWE World Championship Match
CM Punk retains against Dolph Ziggler via GTS

  • John Laurinaitis comes out first. He says that he’s going to be officiating from outside the ring.
  • Huge CM Punk chant prior to Punk coming out.

Great Puma: Match of the night so far with a somewhat odd ending. There was a ref bump and Punk could have won at least twice prior to the final pinfall. This was ‘wrestling’ at the biggest stage. Kudos to both men. Hopefully Ziggler will be WWE champ sometime in 2012, just not between now and ‘Mania.

Mascara de Fuego: Solid match but these guys could have gone much longer. I hope we get move matches between them. Laurinaitis was just distracting in the match instead of affective in getting over his feud with Punk.
