WWE RAW Review: Del Rio Runs Over Santa, Ryback Sings, AJ And Ziggler, Big Show Vs. Sheamus And More

2) The divas match (Kaitlyn, Layla, Alicia Fox and Natalya vs. Eve, Rosa Mendes, Aksana and Tamina Snuka) was boring and predictable, like all divas matches. Granted, it's not the divas fault. Most shows they're only allowed a couple minutes worth of match time. Still, the division has grown stagnant. The WWE needs to call up a few divas from NXT (specifically Paige) and breathe some new life into the female wrestler roster.
3) The segments where Dolph Ziggler and AJ spend Christmas Eve together doing couple stuff made absolutely no sense. Dolph Ziggler's deal is that he is a cocky ladies man who has no problem picking up chicks, and steals people's girlfriends left and right. It's even written on his shirt.
So, why does it seem that Ziggler and AJ are heading towards a romance? Their kiss should have been a one-time deal that led to Vickie and Ziggler splitting up and then ended, not continuing as it has. Ziggler is smart; he knows what has happened to every wrestler AJ has gotten involved with. He needs to move on from AJ before she costs him his Money in the Bank.
1) Zack Ryder had an entrance, and he was given time to talk. Then, he had a match. Which he won! Every few weeks it seems as if Zack Ryder gets on a roll, wins a couple matches and gets some TV time. Then, the next week he is jobbing to people like Wade Barrett or Del Rio and doesn't even get a chance to mount an offense.
Zack Ryder is clearly one of the most beloved wrestlers to the WWE Universe. The WWE needs to figure out if they're going to push him or not, and stop these constant back and forth motions. They make no sense, and it isn't fair to the fans (let alone Zack Ryder).
2) The lack of The Shield on Raw was a bit strange. The Shield had the perfect opportunity for some quick and easy heat. Run out when Santa makes his comeback from being hit by Del Rio's car, and attack him on the entrance ramp. They could have even justified it by saying that Del Rio was wrongly forced into the match because he accidentally hit Santa. The crowd would have gone nuts. Who is honestly heartless enough to beat up Santa on purpose?
Instead, the trio was suspiciously absent. Seems like a missed opportunity by WWE creative.
