The new WWE Champion, CM Punk, opened the show. He talked about how it was his dream come true to compete and win the title in Madison Square Garden last night. He said he wanted to get rid of Johnny Ace as Interim Raw General Manager. On cue, Ace came out to respond but Punk cut him off and called him a middle management stooge.
Ace said that Del Rio will get his WWE title rematch next week on Raw. Punk suggested they have the match right now. Ace said that tonight there will be a champion versus champion match between Punk and Dolph Ziggler. Punk told him that he was stupid and doesn't listen to the WWE Universe because they don't want him against Ziggler they want to see Dolph take on Zack Ryder.
Ace said that Ryder already has a match tonight against Alberto Del Rio so that wouldn't happen.
Zack Ryder v.s. Alberto Del Rio
They showed an exclusive clip of Rock after last night's main event where the crowd started a "We Want Ryder" chant while he was talking. Rock gave him props and said he was a fan too. Ryder interupted Ricardo's introduction of Del Rio and added "Woo Woo Woo" at the end. Alberto won the match after locking on the Cross Armbreaker but Zack did put up a great fight.
Winner: Alberto Del Rio
Sheamus v.s. Jack Swagger
These two guys have a pretty good chemistry. Sheamus ended up winning this match after reversing an ankle lock attempt and nailing Swagger with the Brogue Kick. Vickie Guerrero wasn't happy with the end result.
Kevin Nash made an appearance and talked about the imfamous curtain call incident at Madison Square Garden back in the mid 90's. He said that he thought Hunter was his friend and that they could have taken on the Rock and Cena. He said he was the sole survivor of their group and he stands before us now.
Cody Rhodes v.s. Santino Marella
This was a squash match. Rhodes got on the mic before the match and said he was like a dog without a muzzle now that his mask is off. Cody won with the Cross Rhodes. After the match Rhodes yelled at Booker T about his comments lately about him. Cody tossed water on him and left.
Winner: Cody Rhodes
Dolph Ziggler v.s. CM Punk
Ziggler has another new remixed version of his theme song and it SUCKED big time in my opinion. The last one fit him to a tee. At least Dolph didn't have to wrestle a bunch of matches again tonight. Booker T kept calling him the Zig Zag Man because that's the name of his finisher. Punk eventually hit the Go To Sleep to pick up the win. Good match.
Winner: CM Punk
Wade Barrett v.s. Kofi Kingston
I don't get the Barrett Barrage nonsense, sounds stupid to me. Just as Wade was about to win the match with Wasteland, Randy Orton came walking out for no reason. Barrett bailed out of the ring before Kofi could finish him to regain his composure. After a couple more minutes of back and forth action with Orton watching ringside the former leader of Nexus and the Corre hit Wasteland on his second attempt and won the match. After the match Wade taunted Orton about him winning the match both tonight and last night. The Viper uncharacteristicly stuck his tail between his legs and walked away.
Winner: Wade Barrett
John Cena comes out to talk about last night's post main event attack by the Rock on himself. He first bragged about how he and Rock pulled it off and co-exsisted during the bout. Awesome Truth came out and interupted Cena. They basically told John that last night no one wanted to see him. Cena told them both to shut up or he would kick their asses. He told them they shouldn't worry about him, they should worry about themselves since no one cared about them either.
Raw ended with Miz and Truth arguing with each other. Truth decked Miz and then Miz told Truth to calm down and they should go get Cena instead. They headed up the ramp and Miz nailed Truth with the Skull Crushing Finale from behind. That's it. Seriously. WHAT.....THE......HELL? WEAK ENDING!
I'm getting sick of this awful shit show... :)
