WWE Monday Night Raw 3/9/09 (Repost)

Okay, so I started watching the show and 10 minutes in my computer crashed from trying to burn a DVD and rip a VHS at the same time.  So, quick rundown of the first 10 minutes from memory:

WWE open, replay of the Triple H/Orton angle from last week, then Legacy going after him on Smackdown.  They show a shot of “Orton’s house in Saint Louis,” where he’ll be giving a live interview from tonight.  Triple H vs. Rhodes and Dibiase in a Handicap Match tonight.

Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler welcome us LIVE to Jacksonville, Florida as Shawn Michaels makes his way to the ring.  He talks about facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania, then they play the video of all of Taker’s WrestleMania wins.  Taker appears behind them and they banter back and forth.

What did Cena say to Vickie on Smackdown last week?  Commercial, and I get my computer back up.

Hall of Fame hype.

Lillian Garcia announces that the following contest is for the Intercontinental Championship!

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: CM Punk (c) vs. John Bradshaw Layfield.  They go back and forth, then JBL ends up on the outside and Punk hits a weak dive onto him.  Commercial.  Back from break, JBL has Punk in an abdominal stretch.  JBL continues to wear down Punk and tries to get the victory, but Punk won’t go down without a fight.  Punk manages to hit a Tornado DDT for a near fall and starts building his usual comeback.  Punk goes for the Go 2 Sleep, but JBL rakes his eyes and hits the Clothesline From Hell for the win and the title at 9:32.  Sucks that Punk lost, but at least the finish didn’t make him look weak.

Randy Orton is shown in his “house” with his “wife.”

Vickie Guerrero tells JBL that she did him a favor by giving him the title match, now he has to a favor for her.  Edge wants to know what Cena said to Vickie on Smackdown last week.  Vickie says it doesn’t matter,  Edge agrees, because it’s more important that he is signing his WrestleMania contract tonight.

Lawler and Cole are at the table.  I have that WWE Crest t-shirt that Lawler is wearing.  They interview Orton from “his house.”  They replay the angle from Smackdown, with Orton kicking Triple H in the head repeatedly.  Orton babbles on some more.  Cole says they’ll be asking him more questions throughout the night.  Women’s Champion vs. Divas Champion match, next!

Non-Title: WWE Divas Champion Maryse vs. WWE Women’s Champion Melina.  All of the other divas are at ringside.  It’s not officially a Lumberjack Match, but when Melina gets through out of the ring, the Smackdown divas throw her back in.  Maryse gets the pin at 2:13, then all the divas get into a big brawl.  The face divas stand tall at the end.

Last Friday: Cena interrupted the Edge/Big Show contract signing for WrestleMania, then he whispered something in Vickie’s ear that upset her.  Tonight, the contract signing FOR REAL!  It’s NEXT!

WrestleMania hype video: WrestleMania VI!

Vickie Guerrero is in the ring being obnoxious.  She announces a 25 Diva battle royal for WrestleMania.  She introduces Show, then Edge.  Edge makes references to WrestleMania VI.  They sign, then Cena comes out.  Edge and Show decide to dispose of him, but Vickie says she invited him out there.  Cena signs the contract too, so I guess that means a Triple Threat Match.  Cena says he told Vickie he loves her on Smackdown.  Edge says he doesn’t.  Cena admits that he doesn’t, then shows a video of Show and Vickie kissing.  Vickie tells Show she hopes he wins at WrestleMania, then slaps his ass.  Cena makes an I Love Lucy reference, Edge gets mad, and we go to commercial.

WWE Rewind: Last week’s Jericho/Snuka angle.

Money In The Bank Qualifying Match: Chris Jericho vs. Kofi Kingston.  I guess Kofi didn’t drop off the face of the earth after being attacked by Edge at No Way Out.  Fine little athletic match.  Jericho powebombs Kofi out of the corner for a near fall and stomps on him.  Commercial!  I bet when we come back, Jericho has Kofi in a submission hold.  I win!  Jericho has Kofi in a sleeper on the ground.  Kofi escapes and makes a comeback.  He hits a crossbody, but Jericho rolls through it for a near fall.  He goes for his weird ground move, but Jericho punches him in the wang or something and goes for the Walls.  Kofi counters and Jericho hits an enzuigiri for a near fall.  Jericho hits the bulldog and misses the Lionsault.  Kofi hits the move he was going for earlier (his version of the Five Knuckle Shuffle, I guess).  He goes for the Trouble In Paradise, but Jericho locks in the Walls of Jericho.  Ric Flair’s music hits and he comes out to the stage.  Jericho breaks the hold and looks at Flair.  He turns around and Kofi hits the Trouble In Paradise for the victory at 7:47.  Good little match.  Kofi does well when he’s working with someone good, and Jericho is pretty fucking good.

They show Orton in “his house” again.  I still don’t care.  Tonight, Triple H vs. Legacy!  Commercial!

Todd Grisham interviews Jericho.  Jericho challenges Flair to a match next week.

Next Hall of Fame inductee is… Koko B. Ware!  He sure did hit a nice dropkick.  He’s going to be inducted by the Honky Tonk Man!

Rey Mysterio, Christian, & Finlay (w/ Hornswoggle) vs. Kane & World Tag Team Champions John Morrison & The Miz.  I bet Vince laughs his ass off at the marks who thought Christian was going to return to WWE and be a big star.  His big return to Raw is in a throwaway six-man match and from what I heard he didn’t get much of a reaction.  Christian and Miz start.  Kane tags in and massacres Christian, then Morrison takes his turn.  Christian makes the tag to Finlay, who cleans house.  He tags in Mysterio, who hits the Bombs Away on Miz, and an AVALANCHE FRANKENSTEINER on Morrison.  He covers, but Miz saves.  Mysterio sends Miz out of the ring and sets up Morrison for the 619.  Kane catches him and goes for a chokeslam, but he escapes.  Finlay and Christian take Kane out.  Mysterio hits the 619 and the West Coast Pop(!) on Morrison for the win at 3:53.  Damn, Mysterio’s been working his ass off lately.  They must have something good for him at Mania that nobody knows about yet.

Dibiase and Rhodes are headed to the ring!

Tomorrow on ECW, BATTLE ROYAL!

Next week, The Undertaker & Michaels vs. JBL & Vladimir Kozlov!

Plug for Cena’s movie.  I don’t care.

Dibiase and Rhodes come out of the main event.  Triple H doesn’t.  They do the big where Lillian announces him and they play his music twice, but still no HHH.  Dibiase and Rhodes are announced as winners by forfeit.  Orton babbles on the big screen.  The doorbell rings.  He sends “his wife” to answer it, then thinks better of it.  Triple H opens the door with his slegehammer and looks all over the house for him.  Orton finally emerges from the cupboard under the stairs and casts Expelliarmus on Triple H, sending the slegehammer flying.  Just kidding, he hits him with a golf club.  They brawl, then Triple H throws Orton out of a window and kicks the shit out of him.  The cops show up and arrest him.  Of couse, Orton attacks Triple H and the cops just pull him away instead of arresting him too.  Triple H goes to spend the night in lock up as we fade to black.
