WWE over the Limit 2012: Everything Is Great About Pay-Per-View Sans Main Event
John Cena vs. John Laurinaitis has no business being the main event on a card this strong. In taking a close look at the lineup for WWE's Over the Limit, which is set for Sunday, May 20, at PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC, it's weird to see one of the weakest match setup as the pay-off point of the night.
Let's see, we got a Divas match that could actually be a decent wrestling experience. Layla and Beth Phoenix are the two most skilled ladies on the roster—plus it's a good time to bring Kharma back into the mix.
No complaints there.
The preliminary match, which can be viewed on Youtube or WWE.com, pits Zack Ryder vs. Kane. I'm not jumping for joy with this one, but hey, that's why it's a preliminary match.
For all his goofiness, Ryder can put on a decent show, and Kane is a legend. So all in all, it's not a bad match.
The rest of the matches all have awesome potential.
Kofi Kingston and R-Truth's first title defense as WWE Tag Team Champions should feature some great action. They are taking on Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger. These four are among the best young in-ring performers in the company, and in my opinion, at least three of them deserve consideration for singles gold.
This should be a great match, but it only gets better from there.
Which match should be the main event?
The Fatal Four-Way match pitting Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, and World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus against each other could be the best of the night. There is a healthy amount of legends in the match, and it's good to see Alberto Del Rio in a championship match.
I have absolutely no beef with this one.
Then the match that should be the main event, CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan for the WWE title. You take two of the most popular stars in the company, who happened to be two of the best in-ring performers, and have them battle for the company's biggest prize—this should be the main event.
There are sure to be some memorable moments from this match.
With all of these great alternatives, WWE fans will be forced to sit through 20 to 40 minutes of Cena vs. Laurinaitis, until someone comes running from the back to make the moment worthy of main event status.
It's bound to happen, surely the WWE won't have Laurinaitis and Cena battle it out in a straight match with no interference. Even still, with possible run-ins from Brock Lesnar, the Big Show, Triple H, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, King Kong Bundy—or whoever.
This match should be third in order of hype, not the headliner.
