One more match I forgot to write about, I guess cuz the outcome was such a disappointment.
Rock/Mick Foley vs. Evolution in a 3 on 2 handicap match: OK, first of all, on Raw they said Superfly Snuka was going to be in the corner of the “Rock and Sock Connection”. He wasn’t there. They showed him backstage talking to Don Muraco (who he had a great feud with back in the day), so I wonder if they just forgot about him coming out or what?! The Rock was very entertaining, at one point mocking Ric Flair during the people’s elbow which had me laughing out loud. The match was a back and forth brawl and it was great to see Mick Foley in the ring again, but having him job to Orton sucked, and really let down the fans in attendance too, it was met with total “what the fuck?!” silence! I understand why they did it, as they are pushing Orton to the moon (despite his rather lacking mic work), but I don’t think having Rock/Foley go over would have hurt their Orton plans. Hell, they could have had one of them pin Flair and then Orton could have gone on to brag how HE was not beaten in the match, and he is the best in the business or whatever.
