Title This: WWE Vengeance Reaction

Josh Isenberg

Air Boom vs. Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler for the Tag Team Championship:

What I Liked:

I enjoyed the continuous speed and action in the match. All four guys offer something different and unique, and a combination of size, speed, and agility. Kofi and Swagger do work great together, and I feel Ziggler is a star on the rise. With his compete character, which includes his look, his ability in the ring, and his personality, he could be a World Champion in the next year. Also, Air Boom looks to be a solidified tag team with upside. They continue to progress as a unit, and the tag wrestling was sound and refreshing. Kofi and Bourne hit their finishers back to back, and really shows their versatility.

What I Disliked:

The outside story interferes with the in ring action. I feel like they focus way too much on Vickie Guerrero and what she does rather than the in ring story. Also, Having Swagger dominate and then quickly kicked out of the ring for the finish is questionable, as he continues to be the weaker of the two.

Grade: B+

Zach Ryder vs. Dolph Ziggler for the United States Championship:

What I Liked:

Ziggler pulling a Jericho or Angle with back to back matches. I really enjoy the evolution of Ziggler, from a cheerleader to a future World Champion (Yes he does have one title reign, but I do not count it). Ryder taking the reigns offensively from the beginnning made much sense, but I also liked how he had to try and overcome Ziggler's offensive move set. Ryder and Ziggler had a good, but not great match. There was nothing special about it. Ziggler won with the superkick, which is different from his Zig Zag. He can win multiple ways.

What I Disliked:

The events outside the ring, costing Ryder. Ziggler is good enough to win on his own, and the win is a cheap win. Vickie needs to have a lesser role, not because she is bad at what she does, but could potentially stunt the growth of Ziggler. Swagger needs to have a different feud, and not rely on riding the coattails of Ziggler and Vickie. Expose him in a different light.

Grade: C+
