Putting a Foot in Your Mouth

The Kiss My Foot match wasn't the only thing about Sunday night's "Over the Limit" pay per view that left a bad taste in my mouth.  Overall, I was very disappointed with the event.  I'd say it felt more like a mediocre episode of Raw.

Not one title changed hands, and I'm not really complaining about that.  One thing I've talked about before is giving champions some time as the champ.  However, I really, really wanted both the Miz and Christian to win.  Or at least one of them, and we didn't even get that.

Admittedly, I did not watch the entire event.  With a 2:30 a.m. wakeup call, I watched up until the world title match.  From what I've heard about it though, it was the match that stole the show.  I'm not sure where they'll go next with this program.  Is it over?  Will Christian turn heel?  Will he ever get a legitimate run as champ?  I certainly hope so.

I'm not even going to waste my time commenting on the Cena-Miz match.  Let's just leave it at I'm very disappointed with the outcome.

The one feud I think we may be finished with now is the Michael Cole-Jerry Lawler one.  At least I hope we are.  I felt like these two got way too much airtime for their program.  Guys like Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, and John Morrison have been sitting on the sidelines while a Hall of Famer and an announcer "feud" in the ring.

I will admit bringing in Bret Hart last night was an unexpected surprise.  It's always good to see the Hitman, in my opinion and to have him twist Cole up like a pretzel is even better.  The one thing I can't stand (or understand) is the whole foot in the mouth thing.  Looking at that picture makes me gag.  I hate feet in the first place.  I can't stand looking at them or smelling them, and I can not imagine having one in my mouth like that.  Especially after being in a sweaty boot all night.  Gross.

Not a whole lot of other surprises on the show.  I will say I figured CM Punk and Mason Ryan would beat Kane and the Big Show.  Chad suggested Alberto Del Rio would run some kind of interference.  I thought it might happen.  I did find it funny when Booker T asked if anyone could stop Kane and Big Show.  I thought yeah, just last week didn't David Otunga and Michael McGillicutty beat them in a non-title match?

Kharma at Extreme Rules (from WWE)
Probably my biggest question of the night, where was Kharma?  She's been coming out for weeks now attacking Divas and last week she had that whole little angle with Kelly Kelly and we got nothing.  I'm curious as to why not, and interested in seeing what her future holds with the company.  Right now, Kharma is honestly one of the highlights of watching Raw and SmackDown!

I'm curious to know what you thought of the show. Comment here or like us on Facebook and leave your 1-2-3 Cents there.

  1. I find it hard to be disappointed with Over The Limit for one sole reason. You have to have some real high expectations for the PPV to be disappointed by it. Everything went exactly the way everyone predicted it would. Orton vs. Christian did steal the show, but it ended exactly the way everyone thought it would. Barrett vs. Jackson could have been good but of course, that got messed up.

    Kharma has been good over the last few weeks but after tonights Raw, they've officially killed the character. How can you possibly come back from that?

  2. Maybe it's just me but it feels a little weird to see Hart and Lawler working together on the same page after having such an intense feud in the early 90s.
