Title This: WWE Raw Reaction July 8th, 2013

Dolph ZigglerThe Champions

-Dolph Ziggler came out during the Del Rio vs. Sin Cara match to make the match go to a no contest. There were a few things that I could not understand. Why would you book Sin Cara vs. Alberto Del Rio in the first place? I would rather pair Ziggler with a Money in the Bank competitor for the World Heavyweight Championship against Del Rio and another guy in the ladder match. Hell, put Rhodes and Sandow in this match. Add Fandango, maybe even Barrett. I really cannot understand the logic in this match because nobody cares about Cara or Del Rio. Nobody even wanted to see this match. Second, Sin Cara hits a body splash off the top rope which ends the segment. Again, why is WWE making Sin Cara out to be the guy that lays out the champion? Does this make sense to you? Give me a tag match where all three guys seemingly are aiming at Del Rio.

Grade: C-

John Cena and Mark Henry face off in the ring. Cena talks like usual self, while Henry talks about doing anything to get the WWE Championship. Henry wants to validate his future entry into the WWE Hall of Fame and this will do that for him. Henry toys with Cena a little and then attacks him. He hits a World's Strongest Slam and poses with the WWE Championship. I think it felt just as real this week as it did a few weeks ago with Henry. He and Cena need little physical altercation before the match. This was the perfect combination. The match is not going to be pretty, but watch the story that is being told in the ring. Henry will look powerful until Cena overcomes it again. Nonetheless, this should NOT be the end of Mark Henry chasing the WWE Championship.

Grade: B
