WWE Monday Night Raw 1/10/11

WWE open, Raw open.  Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler are the announcers.  Justin Roberts is the ring announcer.  Tonight, John Cena speaks!

WWE Tag Team Champions Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov (w/ Tamina) come out for a title defense, but they are attacked by The Nexus!  Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, David Otunga, Michael McGillicutty, and Husky Harris put a beating on the champions.  The new Nexus leader CM Punk comes into direct traffic.  They dispose of the champs, then Punk cuts a promo.  He babbles about Cena and whatnot, then says that tonight he will initiate himself as the leader of the New Nexus.  But he says that first, the other members will be inducted.  McGillicutty’s initiation is to be on the receiving end of a Nexus beatdown.   Otunga gives him a spinebuster.  Slater gives him the necktie.  Harris gives him the senton.  Gabriel gives him the 450 splash.  Punk gives him the Go 2 Sleep.  So I guess McGillicutty is in.  Commercials.

WWE.com plug.

R-Truth vs. Alberto Del Rio.  Del Rio is introduced by his personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez.  Truth goes on the attack.  He lands corner punches, then Del Rio powers out and kicks his ass.  Del Rio hits a lung blower for 2.  There’s fog in the arena.  Del Rio beats on Truth.  Truth hits a flying headscissors and makes his comeback.  Truth clotheslines Del Rio, sending them both to the floor.  They brawl on the floor.  Rodriguez distracts Truth by yelling “What’s up!” a lot.  Truth decks him.  Del Rio beats the count back into the ring to win it in 1:50.  I like that Del Rio’s new gimmick is winning by count-out.  Del Rio says he’ll win the Royal Rumble, then rips on Nashville and country music.  He makes Rodriguez sing “La Cucaracha.”  This was pretty dumb.

Tonight, Cena speaks!  Also, Morrison vs. Sheamus!  Commercials.

WWE Rewind: The Miz beating the shit out of Jerry Lawler 2 weeks ago.

The announcers bicker.  The short version is that Lawler thinks Miz is a cocksucker and Cole wants to suck Miz’s cock.  The iBooker dings in.  Cole reads a declaration that puts Cole over.  Lawler calls bullshit on it.  He wants to kick Cole’s ass, but can’t because of the order the GM made a while back.  The GM dings in again and books Miz & Riley vs. Orton & Lawler for tonight.  Other than that good news, this segment was dumb.

CM Punk lectures The New Nexus backstage.  Harris is next.  His initiation is to be whipped by the other members.  It happens.  I’m disturbed.  Punk whips him more than the agreed upon 3 times, because he’s a bastard.  Commercials.

WWE United States Champion Daniel Bryan (w/ The Bella Twins) & Mark Henry vs. Ted Dibiase Jr. (w/ Maryse) & Tyson Kidd.  No entrances for anyone.  Bryan and Dibiase go at it.  Bryan shines.  Kidd cheap shots him on the outside.  Bryan plays face in peril.  He rallies and makes the hot tag to Henry.  Henry runs wild on Kidd.  Kidd avoids a charge in the corner.  Dibiase and Kidd hit Henry with a double dropkick.  Henry stays standing and clotheslines them, then hits the World’s Strongest Slam on Kidd for the pin in 2:44.  Fun while it lasted.

Tonight, Miz & Riley vs. Orton & Kidd!

The Big Show is headed our way!  Commercials!

WWE Slam of the Week: Jacob Novak being eliminated from NXT last week, then being bashed by his pro, Dolph Ziggler.

The Big Show comes out to cut a promo.  He says he will knock out Wade Barrett on Smackdown, then starts to talk about the Royal Rumble.  The members of the New Nexus who haven’t been abused yet come out.  Apparently Otunga’s initiation is to fight Big Show.  He stupidly slaps Show.  Show beats the shit out of him and chokeslams him and gives him the KO punch  So I guess Otunga is in.

Tonight, Cena speaks!  Next, John Morrison takes on Sheamus!  Commercials!

They show highlights of the Miz/Morrison match from last week.

John Morrison vs. Sheamus.  They lock up and do a tiny bit of chain wrestling!  The screen goes black for a second.  They start brawling.  Sheamus puts a beating on Morrison.  Morrison fights back, then eats a nasty elbow smash.  Cover gets 2.  Sheamus works over Morrison’s back.  Morrison gets a cradle for 2, then goes for a backslide.  He fails, but lands a running elbow smash and mounts his comeback.  Sheamus cuts him off, but Morrison lands a Pele kick and goes for the Starship Pain.  Sheamus pushes him off the top to the floor.  Commercials.  Sheamus works a shoulder hold.  Morrison fights out.  Sheamus hits an over the shoulder powerslam for 2.  Sheamus sets Morrison on the apron and beats on him from the outside.  Back inside, cover gets 2.  Sheamus reapplies the shoulder hold.  Morrison rallies and tries to come back again.  Sheamus ducks the Flying Chuck and charges.  Morrison low birdges him out of the ring and goes for a dive.  Sheamus catches him with a kick to the ribs.  Sheamus front suplexes Morrison onto the steps.  Back inside, Sheamus goes for the brogue kick.  Morrison falls down, so Sheamus settles for kicking him in the back.  Sheamus goes for a superplex.  Morrison drops down and pulls Sheamus’ head into the post.  Morrison hits the knee strike for the pin in 12:05.  Pretty good match.

They show tonight’s various Nexus initiations.

Backstage, CM Punk tells Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel that their initiation is to beat each other with Singapore canes.  They refuse and leave, because they don’t share Punk’s weird masochistic fetish.

The first inductee of the Hall of Fame Class of 2011 will be announced NEXT!  Commercials.

Nashville!

Jerry Lawler is in the ring to introduce the video that will announce the Hall of Famer.  It’s… Shawn Michaels!  The show a video package, then Michaels himself comes out.  Alberto Del Rio comes out to talk shit to him.  Michaels superkicks him, then dances around.  Well, it made the people happy.

Tonight, Miz & Riley vs. Orton & Lawler!  Commercials.

WWE Champion The Miz and Alex Riley are backstage.  Riley is psyched, but Miz is all pissy that Randy Orton is more popular than him.  The picture flickers again.  They say “fait accompli” a lot, then Miz teaches catchphrase etiquette.

Michael Cole is in the ring babbling about John Cena.  CM Punk is on top of the TitanTron.  He talks for a while.  He teases that his “ultimate sacrifice” will be jumping off the Tron, then reveals that he’s wearing a harness, then laughs about how stupid everyone is.  The real stupid ones are the writers who wrote this show.  Harris, McGillicutty, and Otunga come out. Punk joins them in the ring and keeps talking.  John Cena appears on the screen and spouts of silly scripted material.  He challenges Punk to a match next week.  Punk accepts.  It’s on!

The main event is NEXT!  Commercials.

Josh Matthews is now on commentary with Cole.

WWE Champion The Miz & Alex Riley vs. Randy Orton & Jerry “The King” Lawler.  Lawler and Riley start.  Lawler goes after Miz, so Riley jumps him from behind.  Miz tags in once Lawler is down.  Lawler starts kicking his ass, so Miz bails.  Lawler chases him and kicks his ass on the outside.  Back inside, Orton and Riley tag in.  Orton kicks Riley’s ass.  Miz tags in and Orton kicks his ass too.  Lawler tags in and blasts Miz with punches.  Miz boots Lawler in the face and pounds on him.  The referee chastises Miz for winning on Lawler.  Miz applies a rear chin lock.  Miz hits the running clothesline to the corner.  Commercial.  Now?  I’ve never seen a commercial this late in the show.  Lawler fights out an arm hold and brawls with Riley.  Orton gets the hot tag as Miz distracts the referee, so it doesn’t count.  Miz tags in, knocks Orton off the apron, then sets up Lawler for the Skull Crushing Finale.  Orton hits the RKO behind the referee’s back.  Lawler covers, but Riley saves.  Riley and Orton tag in.  Orton runs wild.  3.0.  DDT OF MURDER.  Orton sets up the RKO.  Miz distracts him, which angers him.  Riley tries to jump Orton, but eats the RKO.  Orton frightens Miz, then tags in Lawler.  Orton stares down Miz while Lawler hits the diving fist drop on Riley for the pin in 11:21.  There ya go.

Next week, Cena vs. Punk!

This show was fun in some ways, and stupid in others. At least I’ve finally watched it and I’m a little less behind.

Yoshi Tatsu & Darren Young vs. Jimmy & Jey Uso.  Yoshi & Young is a delightfully random team.  Jey and Young lock up.  Young wins.  Jimmy distracts Young so Jey can get the jump on him.  Yoshi tags in.  YoshiYoung hit a double shoulder block.  Yoshi lands a kick for 2.  Jey ducks a spin kick and bails.  Yoshi chases him back in.  Jimmy gets the blind tag and jumps Yoshi.  Jimmy hits a jumping headbutt for 2.  Usos get the heat on Yoshi.  Yoshi catches Jimmy with a crucifix holds for 2.  Jimmy cuts him off and clamps on a headlock.  Jimmy goes for a backdrop suplex, but Yoshi lands on top for 2.  Yoshi lands an enzuigiri.  Young and Jey tag in.  Young runs wild.  Jimmy makes a blind tag.  Usos hit the Alley Oop (double team Samoan drop) and Jimmy pins Young in 5:28.  Fun little match.

The “main event” is next.  Commercials.

Michelle McCool & Layla vs. Beth Phoenix & Kelly Kelly.  McCool grabs Beth in a headlock.  Beth breaks free and hits a shoulder block.  McCool sells it hard and tags out.  Layala sells her beating like crazy too.  They’re selling their injuries from the PPV match.  Kelly and Phoenix take turns abusing Layla.  Beth channels Tully Blanchard and hits a slingshot suplex for 2.  LayCool sell on the floor.  Commercials.  Kelly does a handspring to the corner on Layla.  No elbows, just hits Layla with her back.  McCool tags in.  Kelly hits a flying headscisssors and a Thesz press, then does that head banging shit.  McCool hits a belly to belly suplex for 2.  LayCool get the heat on Kelly.  Layla works Kelly’s hair, of course.  Kelly avoids a diving leg drop and makes the hot tag.  Beth runs wild.  Beth his a diving lariat on Layla and covers.  McCool saves and pulls Layla over to tag her in, but Beth won’t let her.  Beth goes for the Glam Slam.  McCool interferes and accidentally kicks Layla.  Beth cleans McCool’s clock and gives Layla the Glam Slam for the pin in 12:40.  I’ll bet $1,000 dollars the match wasn’t actually that long, but that’s the risk you take giving times for a taped show with commercials during matches.

Okay show this week.  Not a waste of time, but totally missable.
