For some reason we’re backstage with Matt Striker and CM Punk. Matt wants to know about Punk’s relationship with AJ, and Punk’s all like “What relationship? I dig crazy chicks, but this isn’t about her. It’s about Kane and Daniel Bryan!” So then AJ comes to wish him luck, he says “lucks for losers” and stalks away.
Matt tries to get a reaction from AJ but instead, receives the stinkeye. And scene.
Finally another wrestling match. Cody Rhodes vs. Christian for the Intercontinental Championship. Another 4 star match on the night. This is what they should be doing more of with their booking. Put good workers in the ring together, give them a minimal storyline outside the ring and just let them build the drama INSIDE the ring through their actions.
We don’t need a bunch of scripts and jokes and hokey set-ups to get here guys. But I digress. Cody is one hell of a performer and Christian makes everyone look good. And they go after each other for a while. The finishing sequence is as you would expect. Failed Killswitch, failed Disaster Kick, failed Killswitch, failed Disaster Kick, SPEAR SPEAR SPEAR!!!! And Christian retains.
Man that was a fun match. It seems so easy to me to write these bookings, and yet, we end up with nearly unwatchable Khali and Tensai matches being shoved down our throats. Ugh.
