Raw for May31st 2010
Seems the show started before it started. Edge was doing a five minute beat down on Evan Bourne before the opening credits.
R-Truth vs Jericho. They started with a collar tie up, leading right into a side head lock by Jericho. Jericho then with a running shoulder block knocking down Truth. Truth came back with a hip toss and a few punches before going off the ropes. Jericho was heading for a drop kick but missed, having Truth grab him by the legs turning it into a monkey flip being sent out of the ring. Truth then with a flying cross body outside of the ring to land on Jericho hard. Back in the ring, and Jericho had a chin lock in the middle of the ring. Truth battled out, then went off the ropes tackling Jericho getting him into a roll up for a cover but only got a near fall. Jericho with a kick to the back of the skull (enzuigiri = if I got the spelling right) then went for a cover but only got a two count. Jericho then was standing on Truth's back while he was draped over the second rope. He then got Truth in the corner for a moment delivering punches before using a suplex. Truth then off the ropes with a flying shoulder block knocking down Jericho before using a spinning neck scissors on Jericho. Truth then with a boot to the face but only got a two count. Jericho answered with a boot of his own then a running bulldog. Jericho went for his lionsault but missed, then got caught in a semi-facebuster, but Truth only got a near fall. Jericho with a poke to the eyes, and a large clothesline but only got a two count. Truth then with a boot to the face of Jericho and a float over from the far corner before Jericho was able to put on the walls of Jericho, but Truth countered with a small package for the win.
Bret Hart might be a legend but he never was very good at acting. I mean did anyone else see that old episode of The Immortal back in 2000... chills of ickiness.
Mixed tag Santino/Eve vs Maryse/William Regal. .... dude that's not fair, I love Regal but I just can't watch this.... Santino got the win by a interference by Kozlov that knocked Regal out. Santino got the cover by accident.
The Miz vs Daniel Bryan. The match started off with both men avoiding kicks and punches. Then Bryan got Miz on the mat with a series of closed fists (illegal move ref) before slapping on an arm bar submission on him. He charged at Miz but missed getting a face full of top turnbuckle then was clotheslined from behind by Miz. The Miz nearly twisted Bryan's skull of with turn towards the cameras while delivering massive punches. Miz then with a running kick off the ropes to the skull of Bryan. Boy the announcer was pissed off telling Bryan to go back to the indies. Miz then went for a cover but only got a two count. He pushed Bryan into the corner just pounding down punch after punch on him before using a running clothesline. Miz with a double axe handle off the top rope. Bryan down on the mat. Then out of nowhere Bryan slapped a crossface on Miz in the middle of the ring, which Miz countered by rolling over, Bryan then countered that getting the win over Miz. That was an interesting idea, turning Micheal Cole into a Heel. One of the best ideas WWE has had in months.
The creative team wasted a lot of time tonight on the damned twitter crap. No one cares about Zack Ryder and that was just a large fart of time.
Edge/Sheamus vs Cena/Evan Bourne. Wow like I didn't see that coming..oh wait yeah I did. I am digging the smile on Sheamus's face when he got into the ring. I think he knew that it was going to be a decent match, cause the addition of Bourne would mean thinking quick. Edge and Cena started it off with a collar tie up and Edge delivering a knee to Cena. Edge then used a few punches to get Cena backed into the corner where he planted him face first into the turnbuckle. Cena got out and tossed Edge into the far corner, as he came off the ropes using a bulldog on Edge. Bourne tagged in, with a kick then started to work on the left shoulder of Edge with a chop and a arm bar that he turned into a take down chicken wing move. Edge battled his way out of it with a series of hard slaps to the back of Bourne's neck. Bourne then off the ropes with a running scissors take down followed by a drop kick before a spinning heel kick to the face of Edge. Edge then went out of the ring. Cena and Sheamus both tagged in, Cena with a series of punches to the face of Sheamus corning him. He then tossed Sheamus into the far corner getting ready to charge, this set up for Bourne to tag in who ran at Sheamus landing both feet firmly in his face. Damn you Bourne! Bourne then went for a cover but only got a two count. Bourne then started to work on the legs of Sheamus with tree chops (kicks) before running into Sheamus's elbow. Sheamus shoved him into the corner chest first landing a hard forearm to the back of Bourne then tagged in Edge. Edge continued to work on the upper back of Bourne with a few kicks, as Bourne fell to the mat. Edge then hung Bourne over the ring apron and landed a nicely measured kick followed by an elbow. Sheamus then tagged in with a hard stomp to the lower back now of Bourne. Sheamus slapped on his vertical suplex but Bourne wormed out of it. Bourne then went back to a tree chop which seemed to really cause an issue with Sheamus (he was clutching a little extra at his thigh and knee) But Sheamus managed to out of nowhere use his double axehandle to the side of the skull of Bourne YAY! But he only got a two count BOO! Sheamus then stood on the neck of Bourne while he tagged Edge back in. Edge then with a hard kick to the stomach of Bourne, then tossed him from corner to corner then went for a cover but only a near fall. Edge then with chinlock on Bourne in the middle of the ring. Bourne fought out with punches and an enzuigiri to the back of Edge's skull . Both Cena and Sheamus tagged in, Cena off the ropes with two flying shoulder blocks then a hard side slam on Sheamus. He then used his five knuckle shuffle before trying for his attitude adjustment but Sheamus countered getting Cena up in a slam. Sheamus went charging for Cena but he moved out of the way, sending Sheamus right into another enzuigiri from Bourne from outside of the ring, which stumbled him right into Cena for another attempt at the attitude adjustment. Edge ran in with what was suppose to be a spear but missed hitting the ring post and falling out of the ring. Bourne tagged in again with airbourne on Sheamus for the win.
You have got to be kidding me! Well that sucked.
Don't forget next week's show is a 3 hour special with an early start time.
