Full disclosure – I’m not even an hour through Monday Night RAW yet. Having stayed up until 11:00 (#NAIdraft 2.0), though, I am well aware of what is to come. Car doors flying (and hitting children, apparently), Titus being ace on commentary, a main even match that should cause me to lose my mind. I’m excited for all of that, and I encourage any of you Hall of Famers out there to share your own RAW responses here on NAI.

But today, I want to talk about the IC title picture. . . In a complimentary way.

Based on the Twittering I was seeing last night, I expected this match to be a train wreck, a travesty, a complete and utter waste of time. That wasn’t what I got, though.

Big Show, Ryback and The Miz put forth a quality, entertaining segment that continued to build their story heading into Battleground.

My first independent column as DC Matthews. Well, technically I was “The Teacher”, but. . . You get the idea.

In addition to the conversations Doc and I will be having about most things wrestling each week, we will also be sharing some more independent thoughts on the segments, matches or storylines that caught our attention. This week, I’d like to talk about a wrestler that I have recently begun to enjoy a lot, even though I’m incredibly ashamed to admit it. However, they say that admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery, so here goes.

Hi. I am The Teacher and I. . . . Man, this is hard. I like. . .

*deep breath*

I like The Miz.
