Title This: Slammy Awards Raw Reaction

Josh Isenberg

Divalicious Moment of the Year: Kelly Kelly winning the Diva's Championship:

-It was great to see Lita back on TV, as I feel her exit was too rushed years ago. She still could go, even though her health problems began to build. She also wanted to pursue other options, which I cannot fault her for.

-Beth and Natalya come out to interrupt, but Kelly Kelly slaps Beth in the face. Lita and Kelly Kelly stand tall as the segment ends. Disliked: Why not have Lita and Kelly Kelly team up to face Beth and Natalya at TLC. A quick and effective match for them, returning Lita. It could be a one night only thing, but is certainly better than a 1-on-1 match with no build or interest, like Eve vs. Beth.

"OMG Moment of the Year": Triple H Tombstones Undertaker

-Finally, we get to see Triple H return and talk about his feud with Kevin Nash. I did not like how drawn out this feud has been, and how it has taken a backburner to every other match at TLC. Where was Nash? He NEEDED to come out, even if it was just on the stage staring at Triple H while he talks. H did the best he could to sell the match at TLC, making it sound personal and how it affected his life since the attack. I want to see both of these guys face to face on Raw, sell the look and the names of the matches together, not separate. Nash cannot sell a feud by himself in the WWE anymore.

Fatal Four Way for the "Trending Worldwide Award": Zack Ryder vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Dolph Ziggler

What I Liked:

Finally we get a great match from beginning to end. I really enjoyed watching this match, especially with the chemistry between Rhodes and Ziggler. They had heel vs heel for a period, and face vs face. This was refreshing to see, and was a fast paced, hard fought match. It was given enough time, and really had some nice spots, including Ryder and Bryan flying to the outside one after the other. The finish was fantastic, with a Rough Ryder, followed by a CrossRoads, and then Bryan locks in the Labell Lock. Ziggler hits Zig Zag for the win. This was by far the best match of the night, and was extremely entertaining in all aspects.

What I Disliked:

I do not remember Bryan or Rhodes really trending, but I will forget sensible logic here for a great match. And, Ziggler won, but the award was to Ryder? Did not make sense to me, as I thought the winner of the match was supposed to get the award. I like how Ziggler stole the award though, creating some discomfort with Ryder. Trending is a huge reason Ryder is in the spot he is, so I like it from that angle.
