The key to Brock Lesnar was about making him bigger than life and in WWE, that shouldn’t have been hard. If the idea is that Lesnar is facing the Undertaker at WrestleMania 29, he should be built up huge with the streak on the line. The match with John Cena at Extreme Rules was absolutely perfect except for the finish. I imagine this match with Triple H will be damn good too. But what’s the finish? If part-time sports entertaininer Triple H beats the former UFC champion, how much does it hurt Brock (and Taker) heading into WrestleMania? I’d love to think that Triple H understands the deal and that Lesnar goes over, but I’m not so sure. At any point, the match should be super good.
1. Antonio Cesaro vs. Santino
I didn’t catch all of the match, but the story was that Santino lost his cobra and thus, couldn’t put it on. Cesaro tore it up, but Santino had a backup cobra but Cesaro hit him and then hit his finisher. Cesaro is now the US champ.
Winner: Antonio Cesaro
2. Dolph Ziggler vs. Chris Jericho
We got a “Come on baybeeeh!” from Ziggler before we got one from Jericho. Wow, Jericho won with the Walls Of Jericho (and not the Boston Crab version). It was a really good back and forth match. Ziggler hit the Zig Zag for a two count. Then Jericho hit the Code Breaker. Vickie nearly caused Jericho to get small packaged, but then it was Walls right in the middle of the ring.
Winner: Chris Jericho
Does that mean Dolph Ziggler cashes in his Money In The Bank tonight?
3. Daniel Bryan vs. Kane
Bryan won! He small packaged Kane for the win after a pretty decent match. Kane went for the Tombstone and it was reversed.
