“Don’t Worry About It”

Shaq was the special guest host on RAW and John Cena became the #1 contender at Summerslam. What did wrestling’s loveable pundits think about it?

Let’s find out together.

Todd Martin

Todd liked Shaq, calling him “predictably awesome.” But he didn’t like the way the WWE continued to bury their young stars.

Jack Swagger and MVP were the younger guys with promise in the beat the clock challenge, and of course they were the ones who were eliminated with minutes left on the challenge. HHH on the other hand, needed to be attacked with a weapon before his match just to explain him not quite winning in time. Miz was treated like a joke again in the main event.

Wade Keller

Keller thought Shaq was good, but didn’t like the way the WWE failed to protect the business by putting him over so strong.

I question making Jericho seem so small and intimidated by a basketball player when we’re supposed to take him seriously as a physical threat. I know this isn’t UFC, but you wouldn’t see Matt Hughes or Michael Bisping or Chuck Liddell, despite a size difference, acting so scared of Shaq because they’d be confident they could take him easily

What did you think?

    I think Wade Keller shows once again how out of touch/possibly insane he is.

    I think they booked Shaq/Show really well. Making sure to show Shaq was going to lose before Cryme Tyme got involved.

    How was Miz treated like a joke? He dominated Cena the entire match. That was a great finish that did not make Miz look bad because it happened so fast. Him trying to hold on to drain the clock was a nice touch.

      I thought Shaq was great. Best guest host so far, by an order of a magnitude.

      Yeah, all this “Miz is being jobbed out” talk…I think it’s obvious that they are building up to, sooner or later, Miz beating Cena in an important match, whether it be for a title or something else.

    My favorite part was Miz managing to move a inch or two closer to the ropes. Teasing the idea he might actually escape. Best finish I have seen in a long time.

    The Miz was great in his role as an irritant who was simply trying to run out the clock. It was the best way they could have portrayed him. It would’ve been a bit better had it gotten a little closer to the wire.

    The guest-host bit worked for me this week… as I’d have probably stopped watching the show as soon as the Main Event started if not for Shaq’s presence as ringside enforcer… and likely involvement with the Big Show.

    As far as the punditry is concerned… not sure what Keller’s talking about… Shaq’s a monster athlete… how could the WWE have made Jericho NOT look small compared to him? It was a fantastic opening segment. Sometimes I think the various pro-wrestling journalists would be better off if they’d parlay on over to MMA solely. Comparing a worked/entertainment program to a legit fight doesn’t do anybody any favors, and just reeks of paragraph-filler.
