WWE Monday Night Raw 10/25/10

WWE open, Raw open, pyro and ballyhoo.  Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler are the announcers LIVE from Green Bay!  Justin Roberts is the ring announcer.

The Nexus come out: Wade Barrett, Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, and the NEW WWE Tag Team Champions John Cena & David Otunga.  Barrett introduces all of them.  They show photos of the Nexus interfering in the Buried Alive Match last night.  Barrett says their motives are none of our business.  He orders Cena to explain what happened in the WWE Title match.  Cena explains that he helped Barrett win by DQ because he was about to get beat.  They bicker about specifics.  Cole gets an email from the iBooker 9000.  It announces Randy Orton vs. any member of Nexus for tonight, with the winner getting to pick the referee for the Barrett/Orton rematch at Survivor Series.  Barrett says it will be Cena.  Cena/Orton round 32,000.  Joy.  Otunga bitches about Cena winning the tag titles for them last night.  Barrett says since they can’t get along, they’ll defend the titles against Gabriel and Slater.  He calls for a referee.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match: John Cena & David Otunga (c) of the Nexus vs. Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater of the Nexus.  Barrett says the Nexus doesn’t fight amongst itself, so somebody has to lie down.  He orders Otunga to do the job.  Otunga complains, tags in, and sulks for a while.  He finally lays down.  Slater pins him in 2:50 to win the titles.  Way to bury the titles.

Tonight, Cena vs. Orton.  Joy.  Commercials.

WWE Rewind: Last Monday, Daniel Bryan locked Dolph Ziggler in the LeBell Lock!

Vickie Guerrero and Kaitlyn come out, just to make sure I don’t start to enjoy this show.  Vickie says Dolph got screwed by the referee, but tonight he will correct Smackdown’s one Bragging Rights blemish.

Non-Title: WWE Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler (w/ Vickie Guerrero & Kaitlyn) vs. WWE United States Champion Daniel Bryan.  CM Punk comes out to do commentary.  Ziggler takes Bryan down, then gets up.  Bryan tries to sucker him into getting on the ground with him, but Ziggler wants none of that.  Bryan hits Ziggler with a running kick, then does the ROCKING SURFBOARD!  Ziggler beats up Bryan and does a sweet cradle for 2.  Bryan lands a dropkick for 2.  Bryan sends Ziggler outside lands a tope suicida!  Commercials!  Boo commercials!  Why can’t we save the commercials for matches that suck?  Bryan is still rolling, hitting a lariat and a dropkick for 2.  Bryan hits a Buzzsaw kick for 2.  Bryan goes for the LeBell Lock, but Ziggler reaches the ropes.  Bryan hits a Frankensteiner off the top rope!  Ziggler rolls through for 2!  Ziggler ducks a Buzzsaw kick and goes for the sleeper hold.  Bryan escapes, but Ziggler hits a superkick for 2.  Bryan avoids the Fameasser and goes for a cradle.  Ziggler cuts it back for 2.  They trade shots from their knees, then on their feet.  Ziggler hits a reverse powerslam for 2.  Ziggler goes for the sleeper again.  Bryan counters into the LeBell Lock.  Vickie pulls Ziggler’s foot under the bottom rope, but the referee doesn’t see it.  Ziggler taps in 11:03.  Really good match.  Ziggler tries to jump Bryan from behind, but Bryan catches him first, so he runs away.

WWE.com plug.

Tonight, Cena vs. Orton #489034.  Commercials.

Green Bay!

Green Bay Packers!

WWE encourages kids to read!

The Bella Twins give Toby Keith some kind of toy WWE title belt.  Santino Marella comes in dressed like a sheriff and sings horribly.  Sheamus comes in, insults Santino, and challenges him to a match tonight.  Santino agrees.

John Cena yells at Wade Barrett about the bullshit from earlier.  Barrett says he’s the boss.  Cena bitches about having to be Barrett’s bitch.  Barrett says if Cena beats Orton tonight, he’ll make Cena an offer he can’t refuse.  Commercials.

Last week, LayCool dressed up as members of the Hart Family and were obnoxious.

Unified WWE Divas Champions Michelle McCool & Layla vs. Melina & Gail Kim.  Melina runs wild on Layla.  Stupid hair takedown thing gets 2.  Layla kicks her in the face, then decks Gail on the apron.  Layla and Melina cross body each other.  McCool tags in and kicks Melina in the head for the pin in 1:04.  Garbage.  Pointless garbage.

The Miz and Alex Riley are headed our way!  Commercials.

WWE bullshit fact of the night.

The Miz and Alex Riley come out.  Miz bitches about how the Raw team lost last night.  They show the cover of Smackdown vs. Raw 2011, which features Miz.  He blames everyone but himself for losing and challenge Rey Mysterio to face him on Raw next week.  Eve Torres comes out.  Miz talks shit about R-Truth.  Eve insults Miz a loser (with lots of adjectives).  Miz insults the Packers.  They go back and forth some more.  This is stupid.  Miz says he wants to fight a member of the Raw team.  R-Truth comes out.  Eve dances, so that’s a win.  Truth babbles some.  The iBooker 9000 sends an email that says “ding, ding, ding.”  The bell rings.

The Miz (w/ Alex Riley) vs. R-Truth (w/ Eve Torres).  Truth beats up Miz.  He hits a hip toss, then clotheslines Miz out of the ring.  Commercials.  See, THIS is when we need a long commercial break.  Too soon, Miz covers for 2, then clamps on a rear chin lock.  Truth gets a schoolboy for 2.  Miz hits a clothesline, then beats on Truth.  Miz beats up Truth for a while.  Truth slaps Miz a bunch, then makes his comeback.  Truth hits a front suplex for 2.  Miz goes for his finish, but Truth turns it into kind of a backpack stunner for 2.  Truth sends Miz outside into the announce table.  Truth throws Miz back in the ring.  Riley cheap shots Miz.  Eve slaps Riley.  Miz tries to suplex Truth back in the ring, but Truth lands on his feet.  Something happens to Riley.  Truth gets a cradle for 2.  Miz avoids the scissors kick and hits the Skull Crushing Finale for the pin in 10:26.  Okay match I guess, it just didn’t excite me.

Tonight, Cena vs. Orton.  Commercials.

Guest star Toby Keith comes out, escorted by the Bella Twins.  Keith sucks up to the crowd, then plays ring announcer for the next match.

Sheamus vs. Santino Marella.  Santino is scared, but Keith psyches him up.  Santino tries a hip toss, but Sheamus blocks in and mauls him.  Sheamus goes for the pump kick, but Santino just falls.  Sheamus calls for him to get up.  John Morrison randomly comes out to encourage Santino.  Sheamus goes for the pump kick, but Santino falls down again.  Sheamus and Morrison argue.  Sheamus goes for the pump kick in the corner, but Morrison trips Santino to save him.  Santino kind of falls on top of Sheamus for the pin in 1:43.  Santino pinned Sheamus.  The fuck?  Commercials.

Green Bay!

Stand up for WWE!

Wade Barrett congratulates the NEW WWE Tag Team Champions, Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater.  David Otunga comes in.  He wants to cry to Wade Barrett… ALONE!  So he does.  Otunga says he made Barrett lay down because he’s jealous that he won gold and Barrett didn’t.  Otunga threatens to tell people why they attacked Undertaker.  Barrett calls in Michael McGillicutty and Husky Harris and says their officially in Nexus.  He implies that Otunga can get his ass in line or get it kicked.  Otunga says he’s Nexus.

Cena vs. Orton is NEXT!  Commercials.

Next week’s guest star is Pee Wee Herman.  Really?

Non-Title: John Cena (w/ Wade Barrett) vs. WWE Champion Randy Orton.  They look at each other for a while, then lock up.  Cena grabs a side headlock.  Orton drops Cena with a shoulder block.  Cena grabs the side headlock again.  This time, Cena hits the shoulder block.  Cena goes for a bulldog headlock, but Orton pushes him away.  Orton stomps on Cena.  Cena fights back.  Orton avoids a shoulder block and Cena sails out of the ring.  Orton stalks Cena.  Barrett stalks Orton.  Orton decks Barrett.  Commercials.  Orton has Cena in a rear chin lock.  SHOCK!  Cena powers out.  DOUBLE SHOCK!  Cena goes for the AA, which is easier to type than Attitude Adjustment.  Orton counters into a DDT for 2.  Orton beats up Cena.  Cena makes his comeback.  Cena goes for the AA.  Orton counters and goes for the RKO.  Cena counters and goes for the STF.  Orton counters and makes his comeback.  Orton goes for the DDT OF MURDER, but Cena backdrops him out of the ring.  Barrett tries to fuck with Orton, but Cena shoulder blocks him.  Cena says he has this shit.  Apparently he doesn’t, because Orton starts kicking his ass.  Cena reverses Orton into the barricade.  Cena hits the diving Fameasser for 2.  Orton counters the AA yet again and pulls Cena’s head across the top rope.  Cena locks Orton in the STF.  Barrett pulls the bottom rope away so Orton can’t reach it.  Cena releases the hold to bitch at Barrett.  Cena comes back in.  Orton dropkicks him to the apron.  Orton hits the DDT OF MURDER and humps the mat.  Cena counters the RKO and hits the AA for the pi…2!  Orton kicks out!  Cena picks Orton up.  Orton hits the RKO.  Cena rolls out of the ring.  Orton puts him back in.  Orton goes for the PUNT, but Barrett pulls Cena out of the ring and clotheslines him to cause the DQ in 15:36.  Cena wins!  Orton beats the shit out of Barrett!  The rest of Nexus run out and maul Orton!  Cena makes the save.  Barrett orders him to stop and orders Nexus out of the ring.  Barrett says Cena will be the referee of the match at Survivor Series.  If Barrett doesn’t win the title, Cena is fired.  If he does win the title, Cena can leave Nexus.  CONFLICT!  The match was pretty good.

The good stuff was good, but there was a lot of stupid crap on this show.
