TONIGHT: Rob Zombie guest hosts Raw from Philly this evening. And are the “repercussions” the anonymous GM has promised for the NXT group? I was tardy to the party, so here’s a recap on the last half-hour; when I get caught up with the rest, I’ll post it. UPDATE: My tape was eaten in the VCR (yeah, I do things old school), so I'll just post the results and rant on it when I catch it later. Update 2: It's all up now.

-WWE Open.

-The NXT attack on Vince McMahon from last week was shown.

-The camera went right to Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler at ringside. Cole talked about the attack on the chairman by the group known as “Nexus.” The condition of McMahon is being kept a secret, and Wade Barrett, the Nexus leader, is meeting with high-ranking WWE officials about the attack.

-Sheamus came out to chat with us. He spoke on the beating handed down by the Nexus group and said he was disgusted. He said as WWE Champion, he felt responsible to make a statement in response. The response: “The Champ is here!” Swerve! He said he would’ve beaten Cena regardless of the NXT attack. He also said, with a smile, that Cena is no longer the #1 Contender to the title. Sheamus put down the Cena fans in the crowd, then he said he hated Cena (with much gusto). As soon as Sheamus said Cena would never get a shot at his WWE Title, Cena’s music hit and he came out.

Before Cena could speak, Sheamus reprimanded him for coming out during his interview time, and Cena interrupted by saying he didn’t come out to demand another title shot. He said he came out to ask Sheamus for help. Zuh? He was talking about fighting off Nexus, and how they came after him because he was champion. So who does Sheamus think they’ll come after next? Cena did the “jar of mayonnaise” bit again and said it would be the new champion. He said if Sheamus wants to keep his title, he needs to help him by fighting together against Nexus. Cena called them out for a fight, but the computer dinged and there was a new e-mail from the anonymous GM. Michael Cole, getting tremendous heel heat, read the e-mail. Oh wow, they even have a podium! The GM said he’d wait until next week to take action against Nexus, and said Wade Barrett will have an opportunity to plead his case to WWE officials. The GM said that if any Nexus member physically harms a WWE Superstar, he’ll be fired. But if a Superstar initiates contact, they’ll be suspended. Cena said Sheamus is more than just pale skin and bad hair…he said he was a pretty good guy. He said Sheamus is thinking they should start off Raw with a championship match. Another e-mail…the GM has informed Cole that Sheamus will be in action tonight. However, the opponent will be Mark Henry. Cena mocked anger (terribly, I might add) and demanded the GM e-mail him personally…at candypants564@gmail.org. Another e-mail from the GM. It’s about the Money-in-the-Bank PPV. It will have two MITB Ladder matches, one from Raw and one from Smackdown, where the winner will be awarded a title match against the champ from that brand. The competitors in the Raw match will be revealed later tonight. But for now, the new GM wants to demonstrate. Whatever that means. Sheamus got sick of things and left. Another e-mail: And as Sheamus turned around on the ramp, a steel cage was lowered. The GM said since last week’s title match ended without an ending, Sheamus will take on Cena at the PPV in a cage match. Cena was pumped, Sheamus steamed. Cena’s material was awful, but the kids seemed to like it.

[Commercial Break]

-The Hart Dynasty came out for a six-person tag match. When they got on the apron to enter the ring, the Usos and Tamina attacked them. D.H. Smith was thrown into the steps, Tyson Kidd into the barricade. The three left the Harts in pain on the floor. Tamina went back for more, throwing Natalya into the ring. She set her up, then landed a Superfly Splash. They replayed the attack once it was over. They also showed the Dynasty checking on Natalya.

-Backstage, Josh Mathews was joined by R-Truth. Mathews asked Truth about Nexus, and Truth went on to an extended simile, comparing them to animals and he the zookeeper.

[Commercial Break]

-They showed clips from the Viewer’s Choice Raw and the dance-off between Vladimir Kozlov and Santino Marella.

(1) Vladimir Kozlov vs. Santino Marella
If Santino wins here, Kozlov has agreed to become Marella’s tag partner. Santino bopped Kozlov on the head and tried to take him down, and did so. Kozlov seemed a bit impressed, but then applied the headbutts to the chest. Rear waist-lock applied and Santino powered out as the crowd got behind him. However, Kozlov hit his chokeslam/spinebuster for the win.

Winner: Kozlov, at 1:20.

Kozlov helped Santino up after the match, but Santino just fell forward and back on the mat. Big, smiley Kozlov walked out of the ring and passed William Regal, who congratulated him. Regal then went to the ring and beat-down Marella. Kozlov went back to the ring and kicked Regal in the chest. He carried Santino on his shoulders to the back.

-Mathews was backstage with the Great Khali and Ranjin Singh, asking Khali about the Nexus. Singh was asked to translate, but he simply said that he’s tired of protecting his brother, and that Khali would run like a girl if Nexus got close to him. Singh walked off, leaving Khali and Mathews to wonder what that was about.

[Commercial Break]

-The announcers plugged NXT and the voting between the pros and fans.

-Justin Roberts introduced tonight’s guest host, Rob Zombie. He came to the ring and played to the fans, saying he’s a fan of sick and twisted things, like the stuff that happens in that very ring. He also mentioned the MITB Ladder Match. He was out to announce the participants in the Ladder Match. The first: Randy Orton. Then, The Miz. R-Truth. Chris Jericho. Evan Bourne. Ted DiBiase. John Morrison. And Edge. A picture of each competitor and their name appeared on the Titan-Tron, presumably so Zombie wouldn’t have to remember them. He seemed disgusted to see Edge as one of the eight. Then Edge himself came on the Titan-Tron and said he hasn’t talked to Zombie since he personally called him to tell him he was dumping Zombie and his theme song. Zombie clarified by saying he dumped Edge, not the other way around. Zombie dropped the mic and said he was done. Edge asked if he scared away the horror director. He went on to say that he won the first-ever MITB Ladder Match. He reminded fans by cueing up highlights of said match, and him cashing the contract in. He said he’d crush Orton and everyone else, because this is a match he owns. Edge said the Viper will get his head crushed by the ladder.

-After his promo, Cole received another e-mail and was in “self-important” mode. He announced an eight-man tag match, featuring the MITB wrestlers: Edge, Ted DiBiase, The Miz, Chris Jericho against R-Truth, Evan Bourne, John Morrison and Randy Orton.

-Mark Henry was walking backstage. He takes on Sheamus next.

[Commercial Break]

(2) Sheamus vs. Mark Henry
Sheamus was already in the ring, and Henry was accompanied by his NXT Rookie, Lucky Cannon. Well no, he just came out on the stage and then went backstage. Sheamus attacked Henry with punches to the cranium. He landed a quick DDT for two. Clubbing blows into the chest of the seated strong-man. Henry got to his feet and backed Sheamus into a corner. Literally. Big clothesline by Henry. And another. He landed a big splash, but Sheamus got his foot on the bottom rope during a pin. He rolled outside the ring and Henry pressed Sheamus over his head, putting him back into the ring. Sheamus caught Henry coming back in with a pump kick for the victory.

Winner: Sheamus, at 2:30. Thankfully, not much to it.

-Mathews was backstage with the Nexus gang, sans Barrett. He asked about the ruling by the GM earlier. Michael Tarver said they can still make an impact. Skip Sheffield went off camera and attacked a production assistant. “That’s what we mean,” said Tarver. Mathews had his head down like he was afraid they were going to beat him up next.

-They plugged the eight-man tag main event, yet to come.

[Commercial Break]

-Cole thanked I Fight Dragons for “Money,” the official theme song for MITB.

-Lawler was in the ring. He said that tomorrow, a DVD goes on sale that pays tribute to one of the greatest in-ring technicians ever. He threw it to the trailer for the DVD. Lawler then called out Ricky Steamboat. Steamboat walked to the ring, shaking hands with the fans on the way. Lawler talked to him about the DVD chronicling his greatest matches. Before he let Steamboat talk, he said there are some guys in the back who wanted to come out to honor Ricky’s career. The group included Arn Anderson, Dean Malenko, Mike Rotundo, and Michael Hayes. Gee, what do they all have in common?

Malenko said it was an honor for him to be out there honoring Steamboat. He said he’s looking forward to going home and watching the DVD. He joked about Steamboat’s age. Rotundo said he never had the privilege of wrestling Steamboat, but told him to make sure to pay his taxes on the royalties he’ll get from the DVD. Hayes talked about the respect Steamboat has amongst his peers and how they didn’t interact much, so he just really came out to get some camera time and strut. So he did. Arn said there was a billion dollars worth of talent in the ring…”and you guys.” The fans didn’t seem to get that joke. He said he never really got to one-up Steamboat and he talked about some of the top five of all-time, talking about Triple H, Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker. He said he didn’t know who was better and never saw anybody better than Steamboat. Wow. Coming from Anderson…that must’ve been tough for him. Steamboat then thanked the legends and the WWE Universe. As he was talking, the Nexus group’s new music interrupted and they walked out.

The legends took off their suit-jackets, ready for a fight. Nexus slowly walked to the ring. They surrounded the ring and the legends kept a tight perimeter and their heads on a swivel, readying for a vicious cockfight. They kept the group at bay for a while. Heath Slater tried his luck, but Lawler and Steamboat got to him and he fled the ring soon after. The same thing happened to Tarver. But Darren Young and Sheffield were able to pull Anderson out of the ring, and the group worked him over good, even throwing him into the ring-post. “You suck” chants from the fans as they focused their attention back on the guys in the ring. Malenko was next, as Justin Gabriel and Sheffield pulled him out and threw him hard into the barricade. And then there were four. Tarver attacked Rotundo from behind and pulled him out of the ring where David Otunga and Slater helped out there. Finally, all the Nexus members came into the ring and out-numbered the other legends. Steamboat took the brunt of the punishment in the ring. They surrounded him like they did McMahon last week. Otunga did his spinebuster finisher. Sheffield clotheslined Steamer out of his boots. Gabriel then landed the 450 splash. The group left the ring after the camera was able to focus on every one of their mugs.

[Commercial Break]

-They showed a replay of Nexus coming to the ring and attacking the legends.

-Back live, Steamboat was being stretchered out of the ring and the other legends convalescing. Cole talked on-camera about the attack, and they again showed a replay, this time, of Gabriel hitting the 450 splash.

[Commercial Break]

(3) Alicia Fox & Maryse vs. Eve Torres & Gail Kim
Josh Mathews joined Cole on commentary because of the attack on Lawler. Eve and Foxy traded some awkward exchanges before Fox kneed Eve in the forehead. Snap-mare into a cover for two. Reluctant tag to Maryse. She went for a cover and Eve kicked out. Fox missed a knee in the buckle as the crowd couldn’t care less about this one. Kim tagged and hit a hurricanrana on Fox. Lateral press for two. Hard dropkick sent Fox into the corner. Eve and Alicia went at it outside the ring. Maryse tried to interfere but Kim knocked her down. Fox came back into the ring and axe-kicked Kim for the win.

Winners: Fox and Maryse, at 3:15. Not good at all. Looked like the ladies were on different pages here.

-An eight-man tag with the MITB Ladder Match contenders is coming up next.

[Commercial Break]

- They showed clips of the NXT attack on Mr. McMahon that took place last Monday.

- They showed some popular hot spots in Philadelphia while the announcers talked about the NXT attack.

- Earlier tonight, the Nexus group attacked some WWE Legends, aka backstage agents. Cole said no superstars could help, as if they touched any NXT star, they’d be suspended.

- All eight men in the Mega Eight-Man Tag Match (why is it called that exactly?) made their separate entrances. Match begins after break.

[Commercial Break]

(4) Edge & Chris Jericho & Ted DiBiase & The Miz vs. R-Truth & John Morrison & Evan Bourne & Randy Orton
Mathews noted that all eight of these men will be in the Raw MITB match at the Money-in-the-Bank PPV. Morrison kept DiBiase at bay to start, allowing him to tag R-Truth. DiBiase was sent to the floor by Truth, and Bourne connected on a jumping kick to the chest off the apron. DiBiase missed wildly with a punch back in the ring and Bourne kicked away at Ted’s legs. DiBiase finally stopped Bourne and tagged Miz. Miz had the advantage for the most part, and Jericho tagged in to some solid heel heat. Funny with Jericho and Edge tagging together after their heated Wrestlemania season feud. Jericho did a lot of posing with Bourne outside the ring and the heels taking it to Bourne. Jericho prevented a Bourne tag, doing some taunting along the way. Bourne finally avoided Miz and made the tag to Morrison. Morrison cleaned house on his former tag partner, and landed a Flying Chuck kick. He set up for Starship Pain, but DiBiase pulled Miz out. That just allowed Morrison to fly onto both of them at ringside. Amid the chaos, Edge attacked Morrison. The match continues after the break.

[Commercial Break]

Jericho was on offense against Morrison out of break. The heels were tagging in and out, working Morrison over. DiBiase whipped Morrison hard into the corner, but Morrison fought back with forearms. Bodyslam by DiBiase got him a two-count. He then applied a rest-hold. Edge came in and appeared ready to line up for a spear. He missed, and ate turnbuckle pad. With both men down, the crowd vociferously cheered Morrison. Edge stopped him by grabbing the hair, but a version of the Pele kick grounded Edge again. Both men made tags very near the top of the hour. Bourne flied around the ring and took it to Jericho. He got two on a cover and went to the top rope, but Jericho stopped him there. Bourne dodged a superplex and knocked Jericho off. He missed Air Bourne, landing on his feet. Jericho surprised Bourne with a Codebreaker. He didn’t have enough to go for the cover, though. DiBiase tagged in, but so did Orton finally. RKO on Teddy and he got the three-count.

Winners: Bourne, Orton, Morrison and Truth, at 15:12. Entertaining main event, thanks to a lot of good workers being involved.

After the match, things broke down among the eight participants, with the ladders (which were symbolically placed at ringside prior to the match) coming into play. Each man got to hit a few moves, with Miz standing tall in the ring. He grabbed a ladder and climbed it to reach the briefcase. However, Orton pushed the ladder and Miz fell off. Orton surveyed the scene and climbed the ladder himself. He stared at the briefcase above his head then unhooked it. He posed with it atop the ladder. They showed a replay of the end of the match. The camera stayed fixed on Orton as the show went off the air.

Well, the Nexus name was floating out there a while and it's as good a name as any. Hell, Triple H eventually got the stable name "Evolution" over through sheer force of will, so why not? Love that they're still keeping the aura of anarchy in the air and it's nice to see production guys willing to take one for the team. But more than that, I had a feeling that they wouldn't give the HoF'ers THAT much screen time if it wasn't leading to a major beatdown. That was another great segment, with the tension rising as each guy got picked off one by one, and was probably the biggest heel reaction the Nexus guys have had since the first night this angle started. Good stuff, with the only complaint being that the segment dragged on a bit long.

I hated Cena's opening promo so much. I know he's been into inserting cheesy humor into his promos lately, but he really overdid it this time. His PG cursing was really stupid. I wish the E would realize that just because they're catering to a PG audience doesn't mean they have to be so damn juvenile.

Michael Cole says he loves Rob Zombie's music. Michael Cole is a dirty, dirty liar. I can't believe they remembered Edge used a Rob Zombie song as his theme music. I also can't believe they made a conflict out of it.

Did Runjin Singh turn heel on Khali through a promo? Oh, I just wish I understood why...why I should care! (Have I mentioned I love having Futurama back?)

Didn't see much of the show but what stood out to me was how bad Michael Hayes looked. Holy crap did he look terrible. Arn still is a great talker. IMO one of the most underrated promo men of the past 20+ years. The Nexus attack was well done. The hot tag to Orton and Orton finishing off Diabase wasn't the fastest hot tag to match finish ever. Gail Kim is so wasted IMO.

I liked the show, I thought the two main segments were both great. The NXT attack was really well done and unique because I've never seen an attacking heel group pick guys off one by one like a horror movie like that before. It was all pretty cool, even if Malenko didn't give Skip Sheffield a 2nd rope gutbuster.

The match at the end was good stuff. It's fun to see the hard-working underneath wrestlers in the mix with the real guys. I was super proud of myself for correctly IDing the eight guys who would be in the match until I realized they were the only eight guys who could possibly make it into the match, with apologies to Ryder and Yoshi Tatsu.

Smackdown should end up Punk, Kane, Kofi, Hardy, Ziggler, Christian, MVP, and Rhodes -- that's assuming McIntyre doesn't get his work visa cleared up in time*, which I'm very much hoping for since as with Wrestlemania I fear he will win.

* PWInsider reported tonight that both McIntyre and Wade Barrett's work visas expired, which is why Barrett wasn't on Raw and why McIntyre got SHOOT DEPORTED on Smackdown. But that's prolly a subject for its own thread.

Who should win MITB? I would give it to Bourne over Miz even though Miz is the prototypical briefcaseman. Miz would probably be the best guy for it but I would just like to see Bourne get another vote of confidence. For Smackdown, it could be anybody if it's not McIntyre. Maybe Punk gets the trifecta just to set up SummerSlam. You'd think one face and one heel would each win one.

NXT's full name should always be The Group Now Known As The Nexus, Or The Connection, Or The Network.

Michael Cole is such a good heel reading the e-mails. If only they actually wanted to do something with him as a heel instead of just having him randomly act that way sometimes. Maybe he's shooting e-mails to himself underneath the desk (not a masturbation euphemism).

Edge and Rob Zombie feuding over "Red Red Kroovy" is the best guest host continuity since the run of MVP and Mark Henry getting preferential treatment from all the cool black guest hosts.

Better than Mark Cuban taking revenge on Randy Orton for an RKO he got 7 years before?

I have to say, in this instance I think they had ample lead time to scare the music guy shitless and make sure whatever they wanted played was playing by the time they hit the scene. Those old dudes talked FOREVER - for Arn it's okay because he's still awesome, but them other folks.....ehhhhhhhh.

Me, I can't believe they're STILL using the iTunes "CD import completed" sound to signify that an email has arrived (and, talk about continuity, sometimes they have to play it twice, which SHOULD mean TWO emails were sent before Cole figured out he had to stand up and read something, but he never reads more than one email's worth of blather) but at this rate I can't see this gimmick going on too long without the live crowds really crapping on it. (Or...I hope)

So....Lawler's not a superstar? I bet he's sad about that.

Josh Mathews, on the other hand...

Let me see if I tweeted anything interesting I need to repeat here ...

Oh yeah, how crazy was it to hear Styles and Coach calling Edge's title win at New Year's Revolution 2006? (Who'd'a thunk they'd actually ID the PPV as New Year's Revolution?) Hey, there's Lita. Also, funny that they still haven't yet re-edited the original MitB clips to take out Shelton Benjamin and put longhair Christian back in.

OK, so they have a (lame) excuse for the superstars not coming to the aid of the legends - don't they still have a few dozen indy guys dressed in black as "security" to take care of this stuff? Honestly. I guess I'm back to continuity myself so I should probably lay out for now...

Agreed, but as good as Sheamus was in that segment, Cena was as bad. Just nails on a chalkboard bad. He was trying way too hard to be funny Cena.

I think Christian should win SmackDown's Money in the Bank match. I mean, come on, now that they have two of these matches they could finally give one damn briefcase to Captain Charisma and still have one left for The Miz (or Evan Bourne). It would be fitting, because of his past with ladder matches, and it's about time he's getting elevated.

WWE security not infrequently get their asses handed to them by a pissed off face acting alone, and they apparently* took a beating of the NXT guys the night they first invaded RAW. Maybe after all these years they've finally realised getting involved just never ends well for them?

*Now that I think about it, I'm not sure I remember seeing them beating up many security guys, but I definitely remember Striker later stating with horror and amazement how they'd beat up WWE's "highly trained security professionals".

So if the NXT guys are now called "The Nexus," I'm thinking the mysterious GM must be Eldon Tyrell and in addition to their WE contracts, they want their 4 years lifespans extended.

I got home late and only saw the replay of the Nexus attack and the main event. It was a decent 8 man tag and one of the better Raw matches this year even with Orton's tag then RKO to his former Legacy mate. It kinda sucks that they use one of the few times that Ricky Steamboat is recongized for his career to get another bunch of future endeavored stars over. Then again, they do this almost every time one of the old timers' DVDs come out that it is no longer shocking. Still, Ricky deserved better, I heard they did a vidoe package of his career was it any good?

It's a slow rainy day, so why not spend it cluttering CRZ's board with another ECW Recap. Before we get started I got new tires today and spent the time waiting at the K-Mart down the road. I saw a young member of the WWE Universe (age7-10?)
