Here’s our list of who made the most noise after the wacky awards show.
And here’s a hint, a certain potato-eating Irish ginger snap earns a spot.
5: Kofi Kingston: How many people can say they’ve beaten Tensai that easily? Kingston can, twice. Although he got his rear handed to him by Wade Barrett after the bell, that angle opens up an interesting set of opportunities for both young superstars.
4: Cody Rhodes: Although his tag team partner Damien Sandow lost to Rey Mysterio earlier in the night, Rhodes was solid in the dark against Sin Cara. Sure, he didn’t dominate, but he countered Cara into the Crossroads. It doesn’t get much better than that.
3: Sheamus: After a brutal match at TLC on Sunday, the Celtic Warrior took out The Big Show with the mammoth’s own chair and a Brogue Kick. It’s safe to say that this angle isn’t about to end anytime soon.
2: Ryback: Two Slammy awards and a count-out win over U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro made for a decent week for Ryback. He still needs to learn to sell and his matches are still overtly formulaic, but the marks love him. Who cares if Cesaro is in another league?
1: Ric Flair: in just 20 minutes, Flair proves again he can stir it up. On the mic and in the middle of a huge mess with Ryback, Hell No and The Shield, Flair may be ancient, but he’s still got something left to give.
