CAPITOL PUNISHMENT 2011

This was a better event than most give it credit for and had some pretty good matches. I don't think any were classics but they were good. Also the fake Obama thing was just not well done, like the actor they got but still. It would have been really cool for the Prez to make his return to WWE TV, been to long since the last time [during the election run on course was the last time].

1[US TITLE]KOFI KINGSTON VS DOLPH ZIGGLER-now I don't know what any one else thinks but I think this was a great opening match. Great back and forth action with various counters and high spots. In the end Dolph becomes the new US champ after making Kofi go to sleep with a sleeper.

2.THE MIZ VS ALEX RILEY-now let it be known I am a Miz fan. Yes you read that I am a fan of the Miz so every time he wrestles I am rooting for him. Here he is going against his old protégé Alex [great first name] in a nice grudge match. Miz is in control for most of the match but Alex holds his own. The best is when Alex went after Cole, every one loved that. Alex pulls out the win with DDT and the Miz goes down to his former student.

3.BIG SHOW VS ALBERTO DEL RIO-this match was actually highly entertaining in my opinion. From Show jumping Del Rio at the beginning to Mark Henry attacking Show after that, all the way to the end. This match was to me mainly because they played up Show having his leg hurt and Del Rio just going after it like a good heel would. Plus it has been a while since they had a ref stop a match. Del Rio gets the referee stoppage win here.

4.[I-C TITLE]WADE BARRETT VS EZEKEL JACKSON-now I have to say that I am a big fan of Wade Barrett and was rooting for him all the way here. I can't help it but I just love heels for some reason. This is a much better match than people are giving it credit for. Jackson showcases his power of course in this match and even kicks out of Wade's finisher on his way to becoming the new I-C champion.

5.CM PUNK VS REY MYSTERIO-the match I knew was going to be one of the best on the card did not disappoint since these two always deliver together. This of course was a good match indeed and had some great back and forth action. Of course Punk countering Rey's 619 into the GTS was brilliant. Love this match with Punk getting the win.

6.[WORLD TITLE]RANDY ORTON VS CHRISTIAN-of course we all know the story going into this one with Christian wanting the title back after getting a quick taste of it. Me personally love Christian as both a heel and face but I he works so much better as a heel. This was another good match although not as great as others they have had. Still it is a good match with a good pace and high impact moves from both. Orton would win with an RKO but Christian had his foot under the rope so that would play out later.

7.EVAN BOURNE VS JACK SWAGGER-this was an added bonus match and since both of these guys can deliver I am glad we got the match. I mean it makes since that the all American American would be here like the commentators say. This is a good short showcasing of these two and their talents. Bourne takes the win in a short but fun match.

8.[WWE TITLE]JOHN CENA VS R-TRUTH-now I think that this was an excellent storyline and had a great build up. I have always liked Ron Killings all the way back to his K-Kwik days, my grandfather, brother, sister, and I were even at a house show when he debuted in the WWF. This was before he debuted on Raw so that was cool. Any way I think this his is best run ever and most entertaining for any promotion, gotta love Lil Jimmy. I gotta say that I really do enjoy this match with Truth controlling most of it. He dominates Cena most of the time but still comes up short. It is funny how Truth gets beat with the kid and everything, but the funny thing is Truth before it happens. I just love his facial expressions while he is taking that kids drink, cracks me up. Cena then hits an AA after the kid throws the drink in Truth's face and gets the win.

This was a good event and fun over all, not the greatest ever but it was still good.
