ROYAL RUMBLE LIVE COVERAGE: WWE Championship Match: CM Punk vs Dolph Ziggler

John Laurinaitis is the first man to make his way out to the ring. He’s wearing a sleeveless referees shirt, but unlike Vince McMahon, his arms aren’t anything worth showing off. He gets a lot of boos as he makes his way out with no music. He’s got a mic and he introduces himself and gives his title, even though he was just introduced. He says even though he was assigned the referee of the match, in the interest of fairness, he’s decided that he’ll officiate outside of the ring, and another WWE official will referee things inside of the ring. Another ref makes his way down to the ring quickly.

    I would have prefered to see Johnny Ace as referee in the ring. Why did they change plans?

    The only thing worse than Laurinitis pussing out of calling the match was Jericho losing.

    That may have been the stupidest finish I've ever seen.
