*Excerpts from DieHard Pro Wrestling Blog*
Team John Laurinaitis defeated Team Teddy Long to take over control as general manager of the RAW an Smackdown brands.
“This was a typical throw-away match… creative decided to compile 12 roster members into one match as a “thank you for your hard work this year”.”
“From the start, it was obvious Team Johnny was going over…. Team Johnny was stacked with some of the top talents on the roster, some who are former champions such as Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger and The Miz. What did Team Teddy bring to the table? An aging Booker T? Kofi “Lost In The Shuffle But Good For Highspots” Kingston? R-“My Promos Sometimes Make Less Sense Than Jimmy Snuka” Truth? And Santino “Glorified Jobber Whose Sock Puppet Is More Over Than He Is” Marella? Seriously, this match was over before it even started.”
“…what really pissed me off is that the match concluded with the love affair between Zack Ryder and Eve Torres.”
“…what has become of Zack Ryder?…. no rematch for the US title. No feud with Kane for almost killing him. But instead, he’s chasing a piece of ass that is way out of his league. Not to mention, Eve had a prominent spot in the divas tag match, so why was she allowed to get double duty by appearing in this match only to attack Zack’s nut sack? Prime example of WWE creative making zero sense and throwing shit against the wall just to see if it sticks.”
