In a match that was better scripted than the Royal Rumble, Big Show won the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal in the second and final match of the Wrestlemania kickoff show. Lots of excellent spots. Damien Sandow finally turned on Miz, but he was unable to overcome the Big Show to win the entire thing. Sandow was booked strong, but the audience was clearly disappointed when he was the last man eliminated.

In the second match at the Royal Rumble, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso were able to retain the WWE tag team championship after pinning the Miz, who was knocked out by a flying splash. The commentators were instructed to sell the fact that the former world heavyweight champion had to do things on his own because Damien Sandow was on the arena floor. The belief is that the dissension story line is going to be picking up steam between the two.

As many of you witnessed on Monday Night Raw this week, the Usos became the WWE tag team champions again. However, do not expect a very lengthy reign by Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso. The idea here is to set up further friction with The Miz and Damien Sandow, with the possibility that Naomi will end up costing her husband and brother in law the belts down the line. The title change could possibly happen as soon as the Royal Rumble next month.

If you watch Monday Night Raw and Smackdown on a weekly basis, then you already know that the audience has been absolutely in love with Damien Sandow and his stunt man gimmick. WWE is aware of this as well, and they're hoping that he can become one of the more entertaining aspects of the Royal Rumble match next month. There is a lot of comedic potential in an environment like that, especially since he would have to imitate Miz throughout.
