    Ziggler messed up his knee it looked like. Limping to the max when he came out to interfere during the dark match.

    ALSO, Lillian Garcia said, “And your winners, The Big Show and the BRYAN DANIALSON.” Whoa…oops

    Randy Orton finished the dark match off, doing a “RKOroonie” while Booker T did a “Spinaroonie”.

    AWESOME SHOW.

    • j8duong

      looks like lillian has some announcer rust…still cool to hear her call him bryan danielson tho :D

  • snuggle

    So who’s the number one contender show or henry really confusing but it looks like they are getting ready to do a program between bryan and show. I also an glad they are continuing the booker/cody program because booker should be intercontinental champion.

    • jdl

      A mostly retired announcer should hold the IC title?

    • havoc525

      If Henry is really hurt, they’ll likely turn Show. Otherwise Barrett seems to have jumped to that spot. If the belt stays with Danielson long enough I would love to see him face Christian on PPV.

  • Patrick_Peralta

    I hope they don't turn Big Show Heel if they have a feud between Daniel Bryan and Big Show.

  • April

    Daniel Bryan will not have the title long hes not championship materiel!! I hope sumbody hurry ups and beats him!

  • Greg

    To Matt,what was the end result of the dark match? Some have said Orton won and some said it was a no contest when Cody and company ran in. Did Orton pin Miz?

    • http://mattreamer.tumblr.com Matt

      No contest. I guess he did win though, he did a spinaroonie and was laughing really hard. The most fun I've seen Orton have, in ring, in years.

  • DNP

    Daniel Bryan is not ready to main event a wrestlemania he’s gonna lose it soon he still needs to step up change character change music there still needs to be tweaks to make him hit the stardom

  • JackBo

    WOAH! What a surprise, Teddy Long made a tag team match! Talk about unpredictable!
    -_- booooorrrrrrrriiiiiiiinnnnnngggg

    • Matt

      It was an awesome match up until that point.

  • vmagic

    Miz vs Orton? – that is random.
