Location: Pepsi Center, Denver, Colorado
Announcers: Jerry Lawler, Michael Cole
Guest general manager: Anonymous RAW GM
This is the last RAW before the Money in the Bank pay-per-view on July 15th. Theoretically, this means the WWE should be actively trying to put on a good show. As you will see, nothing could be farther from the truth.
AJ Lee/D-Bryan/CM Punk in ring segment
RAW started off the right way with AJ Lee bouncing down to the ring. Eventually CM Punk joins her, and AJ surprisingly proposes to him. Moments later, Daniel Bryan comes down and proposes to AJ. Somewhere in the world, Brie Bella is pissed. Segment ends with AJ telling us she is going to walk out of the arena tonight with her future husband.
Spoiler Alert: At the end of the night, she walks out by herself. Not sure if the writers re-booked the show on the fly or what, but it doesn’t make any sense for AJ to make that declaration and then for the show to end the way it did. Sloppy booking.
@AbigaelHay Someone get AJ a skip-it. She’d easily break 100
Sheamus vs Jack Swagger
Sheamus did more damage to himself setting up his brogue kick than Swagger accomplished during this entire 30 second win. Anyone else immediately think of Marky Mark hitting himself in the movie “Fear” every time Sheamus pounds his chest in anticipation? Just me? Alright, moving on.
After a 20 second match. Michael Cole: “This is what
#Raw is all about.” – Sad. #wwe
Tensai/Dolph Ziggler vs Tyson Kidd/Christian
|The back fat slam
Another short match. Tensai with the pin over the current Intercontinental champion, Christian. He then proceeded to powerbomb Tyson Kidd onto the right apron after the match was over. Despite the domination, there is zero chance former Albert wins the ladder match on Sunday.
Brodus Clay vs Drew McIntyre
|The front fat slam
Drew McIntyre just hasn’t been the same since The United Kingdom disbanded. In all seriousness, how great was that stable in WWE 12 the video game? It was without a doubt Sheamus, McIntyre, Regal and Wade Barrett’s best work. It took longer for you to read those last three sentences than if you watched the Brodus Clay and Drew McIntyre match twice. Funkasauras squash in what seems to be a night of squashes. It’s like everyone is trying to Beat the Clock, except no stipulations were ever announced.
John Cena/Kane vs Jerishow
Prior to the match Cena got on the stick and guaranteed a victory this Sunday at Money in the Bank.
John Cena: “When I defy the odds and win the World Title for the 13th time….”
This was a pretty solid match up. But then again after our first 3 matches, anything was going to seem like Savage/Steamboat at WM 3. The whole time I watched this match, I was just dreading the four of them in the ring together this Sunday. Chris Jericho has a lot of work ahead of him in order to carry those three stiffs to a presentable ladder match. I am hoping that they prove me wrong, but it’s unlikely.
Money in the Bank qualifying match: Sin Cara vs Heath Slater
|Cross Faced Chicken Wing
Obviously Sin Cara was going to win this one. Adding him to the Money in the Bank ladder match is a great idea. The man is a spot machine and he has absolutely no chance of winning the match. No chance…..that’s what he’s got.
After the match, Slater challenged any former WWE champion in the back to come out. Enter Bob Backlund. Crowd chants “you still g
