Big news and soapbox comments on RAW are over here and WWE’s Backstage Fallout video can be found below. However, the major segments were way more bleak than the fun little stuff in between then, so similarly this recap is both shorter and sweeter.
Monday’s best match was the uncommon team of Santino Marella and CM Punk defeated Cody Rhodes and Daniel Bryan in a fun match highlighted by Bryan walking out on his partner, planting the seeds in the process for a Rhodes-Marella rivalry now that Big Show is out of Cody’s way. Punk was kept away from Bryan in advance of their Sunday match at Over the Limit that could be incredible and should be at least great. Over time I’ve warmed up to The Cobra. If Rhodes is as terrified of it as he was at the end of that match, I shouldn’t judge it.
Watch below as Layla reacts after saving Alicia Fox from some pain at the hands of pain-causer Beth Phoenix, Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler – Swaggler?!?- keep their cool after they and The Miz were funkily defeated by Brodus Clay, R-Truth, and Kofi Kingston, and Clay manages to keep himself from eating children:
