For such a highly decorated wrestler, I thought his ability to maintain top control and dish out damage was a bit lacking. There were too many times where Dion was simply able to roll to the turtle position and stand back up, that should not be happening. The other weakness was dishing out damage from side control and the crucifix position. When you get someone in the crucifix, he should be a bloody mess by the time he gets out, if he gets out. Dion came out almost unscratched and only took a couple weak elbows.

If that was Cain in there last night, Dion would've been beat up even worse than Bigfoot and it would be over in even less time.

It was a decent showing by Cormier, but I don't think it was all that impressive.
