I am not surprised by anything that happened in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship steel cage match between Seth Rollins and Randy Orton. Rollins found a way to win with interference from the outside despite the cage. Kane helped despite his anger with Rollins showing that he is the suck-up coward everyone has portrayed him to be lately. Rollins is set to be champion for a long time if he is allowed to say and do whatever he wants even against his allies and they will still be there to support him.
The United States Championship match might be seen as an upset by some. That prediction was right as well though. Now Rusev has gotten himself in an even tougher situation in three weeks at WWE Payback when he faces John Cena in his second rematch, an “I Quit” match. I have never seen John Cena quit in any match, ever, even when he was being double teamed by The Miz and Alex Riley and still would not submit. I don’t think there is any way Rusev can get John Cena to say “I Quit.”
The match I was looking forward to the most for the Intercontinental Championship ended up not happening. I don’t know the details of Daniel Bryan’s injury. It would be a shame to see him stripped of this title like he was stripped of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship last year. 2015 seems to be mirroring 2014 for Daniel Bryan. All that being said, it was nice to see Neville get the upset win over Wade Barrett.
I was surprised that Dean Ambrose actually won his match with Luke Harper. He seems to me to be the little engine that could, but doesn’t. So a big win for him on a pay-per-view was a surprise. Their match ended up looking like the Hollywood Backlot Brawl from Wrestlemania XII between Goldust and Roddy Piper. The difference is the two drivers weren’t fighting during Wrestlemania XII and the match last night saw the fight continue while the car was in motion.
Speaking of the little engine that can’t, the Big Show tried to knock out Roman Reigns over and over again and he failed every time. Just like last month at Wrestlemania, Brock Lesnar could not put Reigns down for good. The Big Show could not either. If Randy Orton does not eventually get his hands on the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Roman Reigns definitely could.
I am not a fan of the Bellas, but I am glad Nikki Bella retained the Diva’s Championship over Naomi. Naomi robbed Paige of her chance to regain the Diva’s Title so she did not deserve the title herself. There is a legitimate question of rule breaking as to how Nikki retained the title and two wrongs do not make a right, but I am still glad for the outcome of the match.
There could have been no positive outcome for the WWE Tag Team Championship match. The people who mock God beat the man who is verbally abusive to his wife and his partner. The only thing I can say about that is their success will not last. Hopefully, they will lose the titles soon and not to the team they just beat.
