Daniel Bryan yells “no,” Animal yells “yes,” and then D-Bry runs into his cousin, a goat: December 19, 2012

Daniel Bryan remains the greatest man alive.

WWE TLC lineup, headlined by Ryback and Team Hell No vs. The Shield: December 16, 2012

Looks like a good card. The Shield should go over in the main event. So should Ziggler. Actually, just about the entire card of heels should get the duke, except Big Show. Should be a fun show.

R-Truth and Kofi Kingston break up their tag team: October 8, 2012
No turn. No attack. No nothing. Hope this doesn’t mean that they’re going into mid-card obscurity.

WWE Raw Backstage Fallout, featuring Rey Mysterio, Sin Cara, Layla, Wade Barrett, Kofi Kingston and R-Truth: September 17, 2012

Love the focus on tag team wrestling. The belts mean something on Kane and Daniel Bryan. Throw in the Prim Time Players, Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio, and Kofi Kingston and R-Truth, and the WWE has a real tag division.

Kane and Daniel Bryan win the WWE World Tag Team Championships at Night of Champions: September 16, 2012
The dysfunctional Dragon Fire (h/t: Brandon Stroud) won the belts from Kofi Kingston and R-Truth. They then argued with each other, each claiming “I am the tag team champions.”

Triple H defeats CM Punk in a no-disqualification match, keeps his job as WWE COO: September 18, 2011
Kevin Nash interfered, jackknifing Punk and leaving him easy pickings for Triple H, who Pedigreed him for the win. It’s frustrating that Punk never got his win over Nash. Then again, Big Daddy Cool would have likely made a mockery of it. So maybe Punk lucked out.
Had to wrap up this recap quick since Night of Champions is on live now.

I’d be surprised if half of these guys actually wrestle on the show. More TV rights fees!

R-Truth and Kofi Kingston retain the WWE Tag Team Championships at SummerSlam: August 19, 2012
Surprised the Prime Time Players lost tonight although I shouldn’t be. Blame A.W.

CM Punk unifies the WWE Championship, defeating John Cena at SummerSlam ‘11: August 14, 2011

But the Straight Edge Superstar wouldn’t leave Los Angeles with the championship. Kevin Nash ambushed Punk, delivering a devastating Jackknife power bomb. The cunning Alberto Del Rio capitalized, cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase. Del Rio hit an enziguri kick to the back of the head, ensuring Punk was down for the count.

Former Nexus member Daniel Bryan returned to help Team WWE (John Cena, Bret “Hitman” Hart, Chris Jericho, Edge, R Truth, John Morrison) defeat his former comrades (Wade Barrett, Skip Sheffield, Darren Young, Heath Slater, Justin Gabriel, David Otunga, and Michael Tarver). Faces and heels joined forces (I love when this happens). Cena Supermanned his way to victory, becoming the sole survivor.

Kofi Kingston and R Truth successfully defended the WWE World Tag Team Titles against Hunico and Camacho at Money in the Bank: July 15, 2012

Kofi Kingston and R-Truth (WWE World Tag Team Champions) versus Hunico and Camacho: July 15, 2012
Prediction: Kofi and Truth get the win on the free YouTube match and go on to feud with the Prime Time Players.
What I’d do: Kofi and Truth win a 15-minute match but get laid out by the Prime Time Players during their post-match celebration, setting up a title match at SummerSlam.

Evan Bourne does a shooting-star press off a ladder on the outside of the ring at WWE’s Money in the Bank: July 17, 2011
Evan Bourne went high off a ladder to do a shooting-star press on everyone in the Raw Money in the Bank match at last year’s pay-per-view. Bourne has balls.
Also, video proof that Alex Riley has been in a Money in the Bank ladder match (someone might want to tell Michael Cole).

WWE Monday Night Raw is expanding to three hours starting July 23, 2012

This hilarious commercial advertises Raw’s expansion to three hours on the USA Network. The commercial was easily one of the most entertaining things on tonight’s show — and it was a good show.

Vince McMahon asks Cena to “tell the boys,” and the messages gets lost in translation. (Watch the commercial after the jump.)
