John CenaThe Stories

Vince McMahon returned and forced Vickie Guerrero to make matches once again. This time, she added John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler at WWE TLC with Dolph's briefcase on the line. I loved this addition because it basically means a Number 1 contender's match, which is something they is rarely done on Pay Per Views. The single match with no stipulation will basically be less of importance. Instead, the spotlight is on Dolph, and that is something he needs. Hopefully he pulls it off. Nonetheless, John Cena and Sheamus defeated The Big Show and Dolph Ziggler in a solid tag team match.

The action was predictable, but still entertaining. Ziggler was seen as the weak link of the match, even though he got some great offense specifically onto Sheamus. Ziggler was able to hit two variation of dropkicks, one to the stomach and one to the face of the former World Heavyweight Champion. The Big Show would enter and slow the pace down with chops to the chest. Cena got the hot tag, would do a few moves, and would hit his finisher along with a White Noise from Sheamus. Cena gets the victory, something we have seen multiple times. Dolph and Show would have benefitted greatly from an upset win, and should have won here. The intensity of the match was there, but I still think WWE is afraid of having Cena and Sheamus lose for SOME reason. It continues to be one of the little frustrating things each week. It becomes the same predictable nonsense.
