RAW 7.4.11By AlyKat · · 8 Comments
Ladies and gentlemen, I exist!! I missed you all so much, and I wanna say thanks to the boss man, ThinkSoJoE and Gee, both of which have covered for me a lot lately. I appreciate it. Unfortunately, my situation’s a bit of a bitchy one. I may not be able to cover RAW for you all on a weekly basis. It turns out that I only get my schedule Friday or Saturday nights, and it only covers a week. I never know if I’m working Monday nights during RAW or not. So, I may end up just being a guest reviewer again. I’m sorry!! But, I’ll cover it as long as I’m able!
Anyway, enough of that. Happy Fourth of July everyone! I hope you enjoy it, and I hear fireworks going off now, but I’m ignoring them for the first time in my LIFE to write the RAW Review for you all, since I have been unable to do so for a while. Also, I don’t know what’s been going on. I know Punk got suspended/fired/fed the fuck up, but that’s all I know. Also, thanks to WWE’s FaceBook page, I know that we’ll have a Triple Threat Match between R-Truth, Alberto Del Rio and Rey Mysterio to see who will face John Cena at Money in the Bank for the WWE Championship! OH GOODIE!
<VIDEO PACKAGE: Last Monday was RAW Roulette! R-Truth vs John Cena in a Tables Match, where R-Truth wins, due to a distraction by CM Punk. Oh, yeah, and CM Punk says some stuff about Cena and the WWE and Vince McMahon.>
BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR TABLES HURT ME!
John Cena makes his way to the ring with considerably less pomp and circumstance than normal. He looks unhappy… Wonder why. Cena says that there’s major unrest in the WWE Universe. Apparently, Punk said some things that didn’t quite mesh too well with the brass in the WWE. So much so that because of his recent outburst, the WWE has suspended him indefinitely. What that means Is he’s also stripped of his right to compete in his last match in his hometown to face John for the WWE Championship. The WWE has thrown together a Triple Threat match to find a replacement Number One Contender. As for CM Punk, we are just supposed to sweep him under the rug, ignore his accomplishments, outbursts, legacy, and pretend he never existed. John’s never seen eye-to-eye with Punk and he has a voice, and he’s weighing in on the WWE’s decision, and he says it sucks. Punk and John don’t agree on everything, especially Punk’s concept of loyalty to the WWE brand. But Punk has been suspended for speaking his mind, telling everyone how he feels? John knows exactly it’s a PG show and knows what he can and cannot say, but John found nothing wrong with it, despite not agreeing with it. His question to us, the WWE Universe, is where does this stop? Where does the WWE stop? There was an incident where Daniel Bryan was fired for being too aggressive. There’s speculation that WWE can confiscate signs we make. And Punk has been suspended indefinitely for speaking his mind? The audience is chanting First Amendment. John looks like the Kool-Aid Man in jorts. Does the audience have to act a certain way? Cena says that the program is bigger than emails back and forth, so there will be no more back and forth with an anonymous GM during his tirade. Cena was answers from Mr. McMahon. Vince is on his way tonight and promises to be in the building. And when Vince gets there, they’re going to talk it out in the ring, not backstage. And Vince has some ‘splainin to do. More importantly, we will hear first hand from our WWE Champion that he wants to face CM Punk at Money in the Bank.
Oh, God. Next up, the fakey-Champ, Kelly Kelly and Eve are facing the whores. Just saying.
@KeepItFiveStar “I called Vince McMahon earlier today. He is on speed dial. I have him #6 He’s in my group known as AC/DC buddies” – John Cena
@ThingsColeSays OMG, Cena’s not running to the ring! He must be SUPER CEREAL.
@HitTheRopes Haven’t read the spoilers but I’ll assume the Divas match ends under 2 minutes. #WWE
@Niki_Sushi I don’t know ’bout y’all, but I refuse to Chris Benoit @CMPunk. #BWF #RAW #ImSuspended
@KeepItFiveStar Kelly Kelly has moved on from Justin Gabriel with the new man in her life, Eve Torres.
Hey, look! The Miz finally gave up the Money in the Bank briefcase!
The Bella Twins vs. Diva’s Champion Kelly Kelly and Eve Torres
… Don’t get me wrong, okay. I believe that women can wrestle very well. I just don’t believe these women (and Eve) can wrestle well. That’s all.
Anyway. I’m sure there was a match, but I was trying to develop X-Ray vision to see through the house behind me to see the fireworks. It didn’t work.
Divas Champion Kelly Kelly and Eve Torres win via pinfall.
Hey, Andy won WWE Tough Enough. Whoever that was.
<VIDEO PACKAGE: WWE Tough Enough Winner, Andy.>
R-Truth is on the phone with Flo, from Progressive about getting him some insurance. Scott Stanford interrupts and says that he wants Truth’s thoughts on the Triple Threat match and getting another chance against Cena. Truth says he should be rewarded a title match, not having to compete in the Triple Threat match. A conspiracy. The good news is he saved 15% by switching over to Geico on his car insurance (…). The bad news, someone’s gonna get got. He turns around to see Alberto del Rio and then says “First Little Jimmy, now Senor Jimmy?!” Rio says it’s all about destiny, and his destiny is to become the new WWE Champion, but… Truth already knows that.
@HitTheRopes Truth is talking to Flo? Is it Aunt Flo? Is Truth on the rag? #WWE
@CMPunkSays OK, he was just talking to the Progressive lady, and now he plugs GEICO? They have no idea what they’re talking about, do they? #WWE
@KeepItFiveStar You see what had happen was Kelly Kelly & her Sindel screaming popped the Bellas eardrums. She took advantage and got the win. She cheated
@KeepItFiveStar Kelly Kelly with her Bugs Bunny style of sexual harassment offense
@kickoutblog Eve’s rump-shaking moonsault is as bad as Victoria’s. #SheAintALadyToMessWit
@seraphalexiel Random: I remember the time when Brie went to Maria to make her two of the exact same wrestling gear when they didn’t admit Nikki existed
@ULTIMATEMARKOUT YOU CAN LOOK BUT YOU CAN’T WRESTLE
Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov vs. WWE Tag Team Champions David Otunga and Michael McGuillicutty
I’m mad they came out to CM Punk’s music. Put it back to that “We Are One” bullshit. THAT’S RIGHT! PUT IT BACK! Hey, wait. Otunga, this is your chance to take that shit over! Oh, wait, you suck.
Otunga and Marella start it out with Otunga pushing Santino back and Santino tells him to try it again. Otunga does it again and Santino fakes a kick to Otunga, who returns by dropping Santino to the ground painfully. Otunga Whips Santino, who jumps over Otunga and goes for the Cobra. Otunga runs out of the ring, however, and then climbs back in, tagging in McGuillicutty. McGuillicutty kicks Santino, then drops him to the ground. McGuillicutty stands him up, and Santino punches him before dropping him and smacking his head against the turnbuckle. Kozlov gets tagged in and goes for a quick cover, but McGuillicutty kicks out. Kozlov drives some hard shoulders into McGuillicutty, then tags in Santino. Santino is then thrown into McGuillicutty’s torso and goes for a cover. It doesn’t work and he tags in Kozlov, who dominates McGuillicutty, dropping him onto the top ropes. Kozlov goes to throw McGuillicutty, but Otunga distracts him and McGuillicutty takes advantage, quickly tagging in Otunga, both of them double-teaming Kozlov. Otunga kicks Kozlov in the head and then goes for a cover, but Kozlov kicks out. Santino starts a Kozlov chant and Kozlov starts to fight back, but Otunga stops him and tags in McGuillicutty. The two try to suplex him, but Kozlov double suplexes them instead and tags in Santino, who blocks McGuillicutty’s hit and then hits him back, avoiding both of them trying to get him with a split. Santino dive-head butts McGuillicutty, and then sets up the Cobra, but has to hit Otunga with it. McGuillicutty takes advantage and hits Santino with a swinging neckbreaker for the win.
WWE Tag Team Champions David Otunga and Michael McGuillicutty win via pinfall.
OOOH RADIO, TELL ME EVERYTHING YOU KNOW!
OMFG IT’S ZACK!
“Woo woo woo. You know it.”
That’s it. I think that he’s definitely throwing down a challenge, and no one’s smart enough to get it.
Money in the Bank ladder match participants: Swagger, Kofi, Rey, Evan, Truth, Rio, Riley, Miz. (unless Truth, Rey, or Rio win tonight).
Coming up tonight, Alex Riley will face The Miz again, one on one.
@dasharpshooters David Otunga and Michael McGillicutty cannot use CM Punk’s theme. Thats like JTG using Shawn Michaels’ music. #wwe #raw
@KeepItFiveStar ZACK RYDER!!!!
@CMPunkSays RYDER RYDER RYDER #WWE
@JRosz78 Oh SHIT Ryder on my tv!!!!!!!
@kickoutblog Webgasm on the way. Zack Ryder is here.
@Niki_Sushi Twitter just blew up. #BWF #RAW #RyderRevolution
!HitTheRopes Holy hell @ZackRyder just made a Raw moment. Don’t know what that moment is but it’s a moment. #WWE
@redsandman99 Zack Ryder appears and 99% of my timeline jizzed themselves.
Vince still has to come out and answer us.
Scott Stanford tells Miz he’s never beat Riley and tonight, are we going to see something new? Miz says that CM Punk has been suspended so there’s another golden opportunity to be WWE Champion, but he wasn’t picked because of Alex Riley. Riley’s a nuisance who sent him off course. Miz could have kicked him to the curb a long time ago, but Miz gave him an opportunity, one that he abused. Miz brought him into the WWE, and he will take him out tonight. It all ends tonight. Because he’s the Miz, and he’s awesome.
Evan and Sgt. Slaughter are backstage, and Evan says that they’re lucky to have him out here tonight. Sgt. Slaughter says that he’s happy to be there to lead everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance. Swagger says that Slaughter was around when the country got their independence, and Swagger should lead the WWE Universe in the Pledge. Slaughter says that everyone makes mistake: him, Evan, Jack’s parents by not using birth control. Swagger says Slaughter should make a mistake by getting in the ring with Swagger.
Now we see “earlier tonight” that McMahon’s jet has landed.
Later tonight, a Triple Threat match with Truth vs Rey vs Alberto.
@Niki_Sushi DAMMIT @WWEUniverse! YOU SHOULD’VE WARNED ME ABOUT EVAN! I JUST SQUEE’D MYSELF! #BWF #RAW
@CMPunkSays Someone call GLAAD! Oh wait, he said “maggot.” False alarm. #WWE #Raw
<VIDEO PACKAGE: Wrestlemania XXVI, Jack Swagger wins the Money in the Bank Ladder Match and then wins the World Heavyweight Championship.>
Jack Swagger vs. Sgt. Slaughter
Slaughter and Swagger lock up, then Swagger breaks it with a knee to Slaughter’s gut. He then backs Slaughter into a corner and Slaughter starts fighting back, delivering hard hits to Swagger’s chest. Slaughter starts to Whip Swagger, but Swagger counters. Slaughter locks in the Cobra Clutch, but Swagger manages to fight out. Swagger bounces off the ropes to belly-flop on Slaughter and goes for the cover.
Jack Swagger wins via pinfall.
Swagger then locks in the ankle lock on Slaughter, only for Evan to come out. @Niki_Sushi just lost her mind. Evan chases Swagger out of the ring and talks to the ref to help Slaughter out, and keeps an eye on Swagger as well, who seems to have injured his pride pretty deeply. Evan gets a microphone for Slaughter, and Slaughter starts the Pledge of Allegiance.
Up next, the Triple Threat Number One Contender match.
@Niki_Sushi Guess the Sarge’s chin just wasn’t into the match.. #BWF #RAW
@CMPunkSays EVAN BOURNE IS AMERICA, AND SO CAN YOU #WWE #Raw
@kickoutblog I was really hoping Sarge would’ve turned on Bourne there and formed an All-American alliance with Jackie Swaggs.
<VIDEO PACKAGE: Last Week, Mark Henry rips the door off the hinges and slams Big Show right through the wall of a steel cage. Kool Aid Man gone loco.>
Alberto del Rio vs R-Truth (and his lame intro) vs Rey Mysterio
1) Where the FUCK is Ricardo Rodriguez? Wait, I’m sure I actually missed this in the past few weeks. Nevermind.
2) GET SOME GODDAMN THEME MUSIC, R-TRUTH! The overwhelming sound of boos that greets you is about to become your permanent theme.
… Anyway, let’s get on with the match. Because I love more than two people in the ring at a time.
Rio starts immediately on Truth, and Rey goes to town on Rio, then on Truth. Rio delivers a harsh kick to Rey’s knee, then head. Rio throws Rey into a turnbuckle, but Rey moves when Rio tries to jump on him. Rey starts for Truth, but Rio dropkicks him in the head. Rio kicks Truth in the head, then tries to grab Truth before Truth rolls out. Rio then focuses on Rey again, going for a quick cover, but Rey kicks out. Rio Whips Rey, who holds onto the ropes and ducks, sending Rio through them and onto the floor.
Truth gets back in the ring and Rey’s focus is on Rio, but Truth spins and does some purty thing to distract Rey. Truth goes for the cover, but Rey kicks out. Truth pounds on Rey’s head and screams ‘What’s up now?!’, which gets his theme going again. Truth stomps on Rey, who rolls under the bottom rope and falls right out of the ring. Truth follows him out and slaps him right by the audience. Truth then throws Rey head first into the guard rail, and focuses on Rio, throwing him into the fan barrier guard rail thingamajig too. Truth turns his focus back to Rey and kicks him in the stomach. Rey gets back in the ring, and truth goes for another cover, but Rey kicks out. Rey stands up, but Truth follows and Whips him into the other turnbuckle, going for another quick cover. Rey kicks out at two again. Truth argues with the ref.
New block! Truth goes right back to beating on Rey before stepping on his neck. Truth stands Rey up and pimp slaps that ho for not giving him is money! Slaps Rey, but something happens and Truth goes out to beat up Rio for a minute. Rey starts to fight back on Truth, back in the ring, and Truth side-slams Rey. Truth goes for another cover, but Rey kicks out again. Rio comes back into the ring by attacking Truth and then going after Rey again. Rey kicks Rio in the face and Rey then hurricanranas Rio. Truth focuses on Rey again and throws Rey into the turnbuckle. Rey and Truth are on the turnbuckle and Rio fights Truth. Rio gets Truth on his shoulders, Rey then launches on both of them. And-
@HitTheRopes The fact that Mysterio is wearing white just makes Truth seem even darker.
@KeepItFiveStar What the hell is with Rey’s titantron? He’s trying to cause seizures! What a horrible person.
@Niki_Sushi Alberto Del Rio isn’t nearly as cool as he thinks he is. Ricardo Rodriguez brought it all to the table. #RAW #BWF #ButYouAlreadyKnewThat
@HitTheRopes Mark Henry rewind = someone’s gonna get their ass kicked. #WWE
@TKeep123 “Say the pledge, damn it!” -What Slaughter is thinking…. #WWR #RAW #BWF
Rio is owning Rey now. Rey is Whipped across the ring and starts to show momentum, but Rio puts a stop to that and goes for a cover, but Rey kicks out. Rey tries to hide in the corner, but Rio follows and Whips him into another buckle. Rey gives a drop toe hold to Rio, sending his face right into the turnbuckle. Truth is on the apron and sends his shoulder into Rey’s abdomen. Rey stops Truth from lifting Rey off his feet and Rio does something, and then Truth is pimp slapping smacking Rio, then Truth tries to pin Rio. Truth then drops Rey onto his stomach and goes for a cover, but Rio breaks the cover. Rio hits the Codbreaker Backstabber whatever it was on Truth and Rey breaks up the pin. Rio then takes it out on Rey and Rey puts his knee in Rio’s face, but Truth breaks up the pin. I hate Triple Threat matches.
Truth gets Rey to his feet, kicks him in the stomach, then hits the scissor kick Lie Detector and goes for a cover, but Rio breaks the pin. Rio throws Truth into a corner, but Truth dives out of the way when Rio comes at him. Rey hits the 619, climbs up, and then hits the seated Senton. Rio comes in with the cross arm breaker and it’s all over.
Alberto del Rio wins via submission.
John Cena still needs to confront Vince McMahon about CM Punk. That needs to hurry up and get here.
@HitTheRopes What a loser Rey is. He tapped immediately. He didn’t even try to see if Truth would try to break the submission. #Reycist #WWE
@imababyface thats not vintage del rio…thats vintage Carlito!
@WWE_Creative Density has bought Alberto Del Rio to the #1 Contender Slot. #RAWTonight
<VIDEO PACKAGE: Wrestlemania 21 Money in the Bank Ladder match is won by Edge, who cashes in to win the WWE Championship.>
I am perfection!!!
Holy shit, Dolph is important again! … Well, important-ish.
Vickie and United States Champion Dolph Ziggler make their way to the ring, where there’s a whole celebration set up. Vickie says it’s a special night and we’re celebrating the USA’s birthday! And, since Ziggler is OUR United States Champion, she thought (her first mistake) it’d be fitting if we gave him a birthday to him as well. So, let’s all join her in singing. But, that’s not about to happen. Oh, minus those five people. And Cole.
Vickie sings like Jillian Hall, just lower octave. That’s all.
She asks if he wants to tell us his wish before she blows out his candle-I MEAN HE BLOWS OUT HIS CANDLES!
Dolph says we have no idea how good we have it, witnessing the finest superstar in his prime, or something, and there will never be another Dolph Ziggler. They don’t have an idea what it’s like to be a natural in the ring. Forget Punk, Cena, the WWE Title, and as long as he’s the United States Champion, this is the only title we need to make Monday Night RAW perfection.
Kofi comes out and says that we’re gonna have a party and not invite him? That’s messed up. He guesses Dolph could come out and brag all day and have a party title celebration, but the fact of the matter is that without Vickie in his corner, Dolph cannot beat Kofi. Dolph says he got dis. Kofi, he and Dolph used to be toe to toe, but Kofi’s still here (low), and Dolph’s on his way here (high) (Hahaha, there’s a joke there). Dolph just left him in the dust, so in case Kofi didn’t notice, they’re having a party so BEAT IT! BEAT IT! NO ONE WATNS TO BE DEFEATED! Something happens, but I was jamming to Michael Jackson in my head and Vickie ends up ass first in the cake. Kofi and Dolph fight, and Kofi sends Dolph into Vickie, who ends up torso first in the cake. Vickie doesn’t scream this time, just calmly, with rage brewing deep inside, walks out of the ring.
Up next, Alex Riley and The Miz go one-on-one.
@Niki_Sushi Oh no, ass in the cake! OH NO! FACE IN THE CAKE! Vickie, you might as well just rub some cake on your arms. BATHE IN IT!!! #BWF #RAW
@KeepItFiveStar Kofi, you have a M.I.T.B. match to focus on. You should move on from the U.S. Title
@KeepItFiveStar S.O.S! I hear them JOBBIN! S.O.S! Why am I tryinnnnnnn?! (I’m jobbin!”
@chynnacena Notice how vicky still licks the cake lmbo #wwe #raw #bwf
@WWE_Creative We may be the only company on the planet with a cake budget that high despite the fact that no one ever gets to eat the cake. #RAWTonight
<VIDEO PACKAGE: RAW Money in the Bank PPV match. The Miz wins his first Money in the bank match and cashes in (ON THE NIGHT I’M THERE IN ORLANDO!) to become the WWE Champion.>
The Miz vs Alex Riley
Hey! The Miz did his previous thing where he raises his arms with three fi-… Nevermind. I’m having a moment.
Riley runs to the ring and tries to go right for Miz, but the ref stops him.
<VIDEO PACKAGE: Alex Riley.>
Miz and Riley lock up, and Miz backs Riley into the corner. Riley shoves him off and Riley pushes Miz into the corner hitting him with forearms. Miz fights back and the two exchange blows. Riley hits a hard almost-clothesline on Miz and then kicks Miz out of the ring. Riley follows and slams Miz’ head on the fan barrier before throwing him back in the ring. Miz kicks Riley before stomping on him a few times. Miz bounces off the ropes to kick Riley in the face before going for the cover, Riley kicking out at two. Miz knees Riley’s chest a few times before gripping Riley’s neck. Riley tries to fight out of it before he finally does, throwing Miz off him. Miz moves out of the corner when Riley tries to hit him, then DDTs (or something) Riley and goes for the cover. Riley kicks out and Miz digs his knee into Riley’s neck. Miz hits Riley then goes for another cover, but Riley kicks out. Miz starts to hit Riley, but Riley blocks and delivers some hits of his own, but Miz fights back and drops Riley on his face before going for another cover. Miz tells Riley that he made him, and Riley’s had enough. He fights back against Miz and delivers hard shoulders to Miz’ torso before another DDT and cover, but Riley kicks out.
@JRosz78 Finally #RAW Just got AWEEEEEEEEESOME! @mikethemiz #RAW #BWF
@KeepItFiveStar No one is going to say anything to Alex Riley’s face. Look at what he did to The Miz after The Miz was brutally honest with him!
@kickoutblog WWE video editing team working overtime this week.
@Niki_Sushi According to Cole, Awry’s gonna get got. #BWF #RAW
Riley has the momentum via Riley throwing Miz to the ground, making him land on the back of his head. Both fight to get up and then Riley Spears Miz. The two move in a frenzy, but Riley is getting the upper hand, hitting a Spine buster. Miz kicks out at two, and Riley starts to hit something, but Miz counters. Miz hits his swinging corner clothesline on Riley and then starts to hit a backbreaker, but Riley counters and picks up a cheap victory.
Alex Riley wins via pinfall.
Rage finally gets the best of Miz, and Miz runs back in the ring, attacking Riley from behind and throwing him out of the ring. Miz follows Riley and drives Riley into the fan barrier and then over it, following him again. Miz throws Riley back over, then throws him into the steel steps. Miz stays right on top of Riley though, and tries to rip Riley’s face off via his nose and upper lip. Miz then bounces Riley’s head off the announce table and kicks him in the chin, right over the announce table.
A limo pulls up outside the arena, and out steps none other than Vincent Kennedy McMahon. He comes to the ring up next.
@KeepItFiveStar Charles Robinson with his white parent in a grocery store type of scolding “No Miz! Miz! You go back right now! Miz! Miz! MIZ! …NO!”
@kickoutblog The kick is good! Miz with the extra point!
@WWE_Creative Somewhere @TheRealMorrison is sitting at home with an @AlexRileyWWE voodoo doll. #RAWTonight
@HitTheRopes And finally, Vince McMahon finally decided to get off the Hulk Hogan route to the arena.
<VIDEO PACKAGE: Last Week… Wait, this is the same as the FIRST ONE TONIGHT>
No chance, that’s what ya got…
Vince struts his way to the ring, as per usual. I’m going to watch DX mocking him and Shane after RAW’s over now.
Vince thanks us and then says the CM Punk thing has gotten out of hand. He suspended Punk because he deserved it. Really, it’s like when Punk comes out here and says the things he says and we’d do the same thing he did if we were in his shoes. It’s not about him and his family, it’s about him doing what’s right for us. That’s what he does. He was going to tell us a story about Vince? Vince will tell us a story about him. Punk’s contract is almost over. So, Punk says Vince this is what I want, special limo service, fly first class, etc. etc. Vince says Punk wasn’t worthy of being on DVDs/magazines, and he suspended Punk because he deserved it. Punk is just that, a punk. Vince says he’ll see us next week in Boston.
BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR NO BULLSHIT!
Cena doesn’t even stop this time and walks right down to the ring.
Cena asks if that’s it. After an unbelievable tirade like that, a suspension, and stripping him of his number one contendership, Vince is going to call him a punk and kick him to the curb? Vince says that Punk did it to himself, and John says that he spoke his mind. Vince believes in the first amendment, right? Vince says that’s why Cena’s mic is still working. Cena says that Vince has always been a fighter. He remembers when Vince would walk down the ramp and do his walk (which Cena mimics terribly), and whoever stood in Vince’s way, Vince would fight. Vince took down people because he was a fighter. Punk says a few things that get under Vince’s skin, so Vince suspends him. Has Vince finally gone soft? Are those famous McMahon grapefruits now peach pits? If Vince doesn’t wanna fight anymore, Cena still wants to, and he wants to fight Punk. And if Vince doesn’t feel like fighting, maybe he should hang it up.
Vince says he’ll tell us why Vince really suspended Punk. Vince doesn’t wanna take a chance on Cena. Doesn’t wanna take a chance that Punk defeats Cena. Vince takes calculated risks, which is how he beat everyone who gets in his way. Therefore if Punk defeats Cena, Punk will walk out and into some other organization, and Vince will not be embarrassed. Cena says that the billionaire chairman afraid of being embarrassed. Vince is afraid of Cena not beating Punk. Cena says that he’s not going to guarantee he’s going to beat Punk, but Punk earned a spot and the people want to see it. Oh, and God forbid we embarrass Vince McMahon. As a member of the WWE Universe, MitB is the biggest PPV of the year. Can Punk pull it off? Can Cena win against Punk? It’s not embarrassing, it sounds like the match of the year. But some kid said something that Vince didn’t like, so Vince suspended him. Cena asks if he says something Vince doesn’t like, will Cena gets suspended? Vince tells him not to piss him off. Vince says don’t be Hogan or anyone that came before him. Vince says they’ll talk in front of these people, but talk to him one on one. Vince gave a logical explanation. Vince doesn’t wanna take the chance of being embarrassed. Cena says he should give the people what we want. Vince says Cena is embarrassing him now. Vince doesn’t give a damn what we want because he is not gonna jeopardize who he is and his company. Doesn’t John get this isn’t His company? Before John, there were others. Doesn’t John get that? It’s Vince’s company. And Vince does what’s right for the company, and for each and every one of us. His decisions are good ones. Vince asks if they’re good. John says he gets it and its Vince’s company. He gets it and he’s not stupid. But, if that’s how Vince wants to run it, it’s not something Cena signed up for. He gets it, everyone is replaceable. Cena works himself to the bone for Vince and the brand because he thinks that this stands for something. You’re so worried about Punk taking the championship and making it meaningless, and if you just kick him to the curb, you make it meaningless. Cena passes Vince the Championship and starts to walk out. Vince tells him to stop, and Cena does. Vince tells Cena not to go anywhere and makes his way out of the ring. Vince and Cena stand nose to nose, and then Vince says alright, I hate this has come between them. Punk’s reinstated, and Cena has his match. Vince says Cena shouldn’t be smiling because if Punk walks out of Chicago with the championship, Cena is fired.
Interesting RAW tonight, guys. I’ll be back… when I’m back. Sorry about the lack of appearance, guys. I’m working on it.

Aly is back! Huzzah!
Flo is SOOOO not talking to R-Truth. She's so out of his league, insurance questions or no.
"… Don’t get me wrong, okay. I believe that women can wrestle very well. I just don’t believe these women (and Eve) can wrestle well. That’s all."
Yes. This. This times infinity. Although, I must insist that if Eve were allowed to actually WRESTLE, with a ground-based submissions style that highlighted her jiu-jitsu training, she could be much more impressive than WWE has allowed her to be. Hey, any chick who chokes out Matt Hardy (or taps him, I can't remember which it was) for being a douchebag gets an A in my book!
I do agree that if Eve were allowed to shine, she could be better. But, she's just not in the roll she's in.
And thank you. It was fun to be back.
Oh man. This review was EPIC! Hell, Drow already quoted one of my favorite parts. And the Twitter quotes used here are pure gold.
One thing I noticed that bugs me severely, that nobody else probably even caught, is that the right side plate on the WWE Championship reads "WWE HAMPION." Seriously. Go back and watch Cena's opening monologue, and pay attention. The C is gone. I hate that kind of stuff. I'm a huge mark for championship belts, and I hate when I can see something wrong with them.
Punk stole the "C."
John likes ham. Can't blame him for that. But he's a champion, not a hampion. When he wins a ham-eating contest like the hot-dog eating contest yesterday, then he can get a SEPARATE belt.
My friend Arthur used to go on at length with such gems as "What's Mark Henry's nickname? The World's Strongest Man. What did Mark Henry eat for breakfast? The World's Strongest Ham. What did he cook it in? The World's Strongest Pan." And so on.
Sorry, Niki_Sushi, you brought back old memories!
….. I could really go for ham right now. xD
On the contrary, John Cena seems to have an issue with ham. I remember he once told Kurt Angle he was "actin' like a ham sandwich" as an insult, so it appears that he really DOESN'T like ham. Besides, I'm willing to bet that Evan Bourne or Yoshi Tatsu would win a ham eating contest. It's always the little guys.
