    I would like to see a Ziggler vs Swagger fued, with Swagger turning face.

    • Anand

      Ziggler is better off being in main-event quality feuds rather than wasting his time with swagger. Am not saying Swagger is bad, but Zigger is better off in singles feuds with top stars rather than swagger

    • Turning swagger would be stupid because he has been heel ever since he started

      • Redrum Vasquez

        It would be stupid to turn Ziggler for the same reason

  • Tyler Bowles

    In the name of #PeoplePower!

  • JasonGaza

    Kane might win so him and punk can fued into summerslam

  • Rkoturner17

    Swagger could no pull off being a face he’d just fall to the lower card heels and Ziggler would enter the main the main event!

  • Dan

    No randy orton? Is he injured or something or are they waiting for something for him.

    • Randy Orton has been suspended for 60 days due to a wellness violation.

  • H.M.

    Sounds like a pretty legit episode.

  • XKonn247

    Hehe. Kane hits a choke slam on himself.

    • Lindsay Marie

      I know, I found that a bit odd myself. Lol!

  • mel

    • urnemystic

      Ha wish i could give this comment more than one thumbs down!

    • BOB

    • Hunter

      Yeah, where the hell is Layla. She hasn’t been on anything since Over The Limit

  • Dangerous Lee

    The million dollar question. Did sin cara botch?

  • Autista

    Are you serious, bro?

  • rogstab

    These DQ main events on both Raw and SD are getting old. How much longer are they going to keep feeding Ryback jobbers?

    • steve2

      Until he stops asking them to feed him more 🙂

        best response i have ever seen on this site!:)

    I attended the event. The show was pretty solid, but nothing newsworthy. Cena had a dark match main event against Show, Otuga, and Ace. I must say I was disappointed with not having any Divas matches, save for that horrible excuse for a match between Kaitlyn and Tamina for NXT. Sin Cara actually didn’t botch and his new ring gear is pretty amazing. I was also expecting to see Orton. The original title defense was supposed to be a triple threat including Del Rio. Don’t know why it was changed, but I don’t mind seeing the Big Red Monster wreak havoc.

  • Laterial

    Ryback’s jobbers have been old since day one. Remember who had a similar debut two years ago? That’s right, Big Zeke was a dominant force to be reckoned with and now he’s been diminished to jobbing for Damien Sandow. I am not impressed with his work at all. IMO, besides the Kane/Punk match, Christian/McIntyre’s Superstars match was pretty good. If Drew keeps up this level of work, maybe he’ll get another push. As for now, it appears he was chosen to fail.

  • Dave Barton

    World of good it did to put Ezekiel Jackson over Christian for the ECW Title on the last ECW episode ever. I mean, just look at all that 'Zeke has done since then!


  • Dan

    Randy orton suspended for 60 days for wellness violation. Explains why he was no show.
