There are still many unanswered questions following Raw, 24 hours removed from the Survivor Series pay-per-view event. Once again, the 3 NXT alums dressed in black attacked Ryback and put him through a table, with no explanation of who, what or why. At this point, building intrigue through mystery is a great strategy, which is why I'm looking forward to the eventual "explanation" even more.
CM Punk celebrated one full fiscal year as
** Ryback defeated Tensai. Before that, he talked about things like "feasting" on the WWE championship, the three NXT assailants being his "prey" and taking the food out of his mouth. Why must most of his promos be nourishment-related? I think we get the point with "feed me more."
** Kaitlyn beat Aksana, sans wig.
** Antonio Cesaro pins Brodus Clay. What's happening to Brodus Clay? His entrance is still fun and I'm sure kids enjoy dancing with him, but sooner or later we may need to see the "killer" Brodus Clay again, at least before the end of his career. Can the "Funkasaurus" still be relevant and entertaining while floundering into obscurity?
** Randy Orton defeated Alberto Del Rio in a two-out-of-three falls match. The way these two are going, I expect them to have every stipulation match under the WWE sun!
** The Great Khali squashed Primo and Epico. Hornswoggle sprayed water into Rosa's face. You can come to your own conclusions here.
** The Miz pinned Twinkie hoarder David Otunga. Miz is making a gradual progression to good guy and why not? What is there left to accomplish as a heel?
** Sheamus soundly defeated Damien Sandow after some interaction with Big Show. A chairs match is likely in their future.
** Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio vs. Kane and Daniel Bryan ended after the PTP interfered (sidebar: Titus O'Neil did a terrific job on commentary. He sounded relaxed and felt like he was having fun out there).
