Monday Night Raw 5/20/13 – Ryback rules at Batista impersonations

As suspected, Extreme Rules was greatly superior to Wrestlemania in terms of match quality, length and storytelling. How do they keep getting this show so right, and the Grandest Stage of Them All so wrong? It’s not worth dwelling over; let’s instead focus on the pay-per-view itself, namely the fact that they’ve incorporated a ridiculous sports desk for pundits (wrestlers) to offer comment on the evening.

This leads to some awkward sequence where it almost looks like Garcia wanted to kiss him at one point. I love the combination of dirty Johnny Curtis from Nxt and Fandango it gives the character a lot more depth. In the end, Fandango drops Lillian for her bad skills leaving her distraught.

Santino comes out calling the dancing douche bag a couple bad names that he thinks are funny before they get to the match.
