TONIGHT: Who knows?

-WWE Open.

-Cold open to Nexus standing in the ring. Wade Barrett said it was fitting that Raw is emanating from the nation’s capital, home of many groundbreaking speeches and rallies. Barrett reminded everyone of what they did last week. They showed clips of the attack on the Titan Tron. David Otunga said that Nexus was the new phenoms of WWE. He said they kicked Darren Young out and lost Skip Sheffield to injury, but they still got the job done. Michael Tarver said what they did to Taker was unprecedented. What about the big heel locker room vs. Undertaker at the Royal Rumble during the Casket Match against Yokozuna? Tarver then talked about their win in the main event last week as well. He said Edge and Chris Jericho left the match of their own accord, as they wanted nothing to do with Nexus. He handed the mic to Heath Slater, who bragged about pinning the WWE Champion. He repeated that fact a few times. Justin Gabriel told Slater to calm down, and said he did something even more impressive. He asked how many people can claim to have done their finishing move to Undertaker AND John Cena on the same night? They showed clips of that as well. He said every time he hits that move on Cena, it gets more and more satisfying. Barrett noted that, after all that, he de-venomized the Viper. He turned his attention to the Six-Pack Challenge, and said he’d beat five men to bring the WWE Championship back home to Nexus. “Back” home? Just as Barrett seemed to be finishing up, Randy Orton came out to his music.

On the ramp, Orton said what he took away from last week is that he took out two of the Nexus in 30 seconds. He said Barrett wasn’t going to roll footage of that, so he’ll just do it again. Orton said he didn’t care who he’d have to beat at Night of Champions, but one thing he would do is RKO Barrett. The GM e-mailed Michael Cole, who read the e-mail (you could see he was reading from a paper on the keyboard). The GM gave some lip service to Nexus, then made Justin Gabriel vs. John Cena for tonight. In addition, Orton will take on Barrett. To make sure things stay fair, Nexus is banned from ringside during those matches.

[Commercial Break]

-Chris Jericho made his way to the ring for a match, and as he got to the ring, the GM e-mailed Cole. The GM said Jericho and Edge leaving the match last week was a slap in the face of the fans, and him (or her) self. So, as punishment, if Jericho and/or Edge lose their matches tonight, they’ll be taken out of the Six Pack Challenge at Night of Champions.

(1) Chris Jericho vs. John Morrison
Jericho went on the attack to start. Morrison rolled up Jericho for two near-falls. Jericho ran at him with a hard forearm shot. Morrison was then unceremoniously thrown out of the ring. Jericho kept yelling, “who is it?” at Cole, apparently referring to the GM. They went to break over one minute in.

[Commercial Break]

Jericho had Morrison in a rest-hold out of break. Back suplex by Jericho for two. Morrison attempted a comeback, but Jericho put him down. Lionsault, but he landed on his feet. Flash kick by Morrison for two. Codebreaker attempt was blocked by Morrison as he held onto the ropes. Roll-up by Jericho for two. Enziguiri from the former Y2J. He took a few seconds too long to make the pin, and Morrison kicked out just before three. Trash talking by Jericho got him nowhere, as he ran shoulder-first into the ring post. Starship Pain, but Morrison landed on his feet and Jericho attempted the Walls of Jericho. Fans were really into this part of the match as Morrison tried to crawl to the ropes. He finally made it. Morrison went outside the ring, but Jericho tried to bring him in the hard way. Morrison ended up knocking Jericho off the top with a series of rights. Starship Pain found the mark and Morrison picked up the win.

Winner: Morrison, at 9:57. Hopefully, this means Jericho re-upped with WWE.

Jericho sold the loss with a despondent look on his face after the match. Some of the crowd chanted for him. He walked out of the ring and sat on the ringside steps, contemplating things. Extreme close-up on Jericho’s face and a lot of people cheered as he began his walk to the back.

-The announcers plugged Gabriel vs. Cena for later tonight.

-Also, Barrett vs. Orton.

[Commercial Break]

-Melina came out for a match, as did Alicia Fox. Alicia had a mic though, and said Melina would not be competing at Night of Champions, because Fox said she would be the “undefined” Women’s Champion at the show. Dear God. She said she’d be at N.O.C not as a Lumberjill, but as the most feared champion in Women’s History. Jerry Lawler and Cole had to translate Fox’s promo for the fans.

(2) Melina vs. Alicia Fox- Divas Championship Match
Running kick to the head of Fox, and Melina ended the kick in a split position. Fox had enough already and said she was leaving, but Melina pulled her hair and sent her back into the ring. Melina to the top and a cross-body off the top got two. Fox soon went back on offense by tripping Melina, sending her throat-first into the middle rope. Matrix by Melina, then a one-legged dropkick. Fox missed a corner charge and Melina seemed destined to hit her finisher, but Fox back-dropped her to the apron. Sunset split by Melina once she got back into the ring and that ended things.

Winner: Melina, at 2:09. That finisher is awful.

-The Miz was backstage, looking at…something that was covered by a black drape. Josh Mathews was there as well, but I guess not acting in official capacity as an announcer. Miz talked about the road to Awesome being revealed tonight. Mathews asked to see what was underneath, but Miz smacked his hand away.

[Commercial Break]

-The announcers hyped WWEPoker.com, a sub-site of WWE.com.

-Edge was ranting to Zack Ryder backstage about having to put his spot in the Six-Pack Challenge on the line. He said the reason he pushed the ref was because he made derogatory comments about his mom. Ryder said he knows what it’s like to be #1 Contender, so he offered to face Edge tonight. Edge said Ryder is an easy win for him, and Ryder reminded Edge he was standing right there. Edge yelled out to the anonymous GM that he accepted Ryder’s challenge for tonight. Edge threatened to break the GM computer if Ryder wasn’t his opponent. Edge shrugged off Ryder being upset about calling him a “tool.”

-Ted DiBiase was on the phone backstage, presumably with Maryse, who he said he loved spending time with and said he loved her too. Maryse then walked in and asked who he was talking too. He said it was his mom. Maryse said, “me too,” to DiBiase, and he didn’t understand. Maryse said she went back to the limo to get her purse and said she found a note. It said: “I want you so bad.” Teddy said he didn’t write this, since he can tell her to her face. Then he asked why she thought it was for her and said it could be for him. He said there are six new Diva rookies on NXT who would die to be in Maryse’s shoes. Maryse spoke in French, frustrating DiBiase. DiBiase then walked out as Maryse continued to rant.

-Justin Gabriel came out for his bout against John Cena. It’s next.

[Commercial Break]

-Next Monday, on the season premiere of Raw, it’ll be Raw Roulette.

(3) Justin Gabriel vs. John Cena
A reminder, no Nexus allowed at ringside. Arm-bar by Gabriel, then a head-scissors by Cena. Dueling “Let’s Go Cena” and “Cena Sucks” chant. Gabriel wanted a test of strength, but Cena walked into a kick to the stomach. More rights from Gabriel, but Cena turned the tide with rights of his own. He ended up running into an elbow in the corner, though. Hilo by Gabriel onto Cena from the apron for a two-count. Looked pretty, too. Cena struggled to get to his feet in the corner, then Gabriel landed a springboard cross-body for two. Submission move by Gabriel, and he had Cena in the center of the ring. Cena started to comeback, but a Blue Thunder Bomb (shades of Val Venis!) resulted in a two-count. Moonsault off the top did not find the mark and both men were down. Vintage Cena ensued. Gabriel bounced back with a kick to the mouth of Cena. He dragged Cena to the corner and went to the top. Cena got back to his feet and hammered away on Gabriel. He put Gabriel on his shoulders on the second rope and hit the Attitude Adjustment from there for the win.

Winner: Cena, at 6:14. Gabriel was OK; he was shaky early on with mostly kicks and punches, but got better as it went on.

-Cole and Lawler talked on camera about WWE Films’ Legendary. The spin doctors were in full force: Apparently, only a limited number of theaters will have the “privilege” of showing the movie. They sent it to a sneak peek of the film, opening this Friday.

[Commercial Break]

-The Miz was in the ring in a suit and the easel with the picture covered up. He introduced himself as Mike Mizanin and said he doesn’t deserve to be here. At least, that’s what he was told six years ago. He talked about being a reality TV star, then about competing at the bottom rung of the ladder on Tough Enough. He said he began to here the voices of superstars in the back and the fans asking him why he was there, and they told him to go back to MTV. Miz said he refused to cave in to the pressure. He said he would’ve done anything to get a job in WWE, so he became the host of Smackdown. They showed a picture of him doing that, as they did of him on the Real World and in Tough Enough. Miz said he worked through all the adversity and all the nay-sayers to become tag-team champion with John Morrison. But that wasn’t good enough, because everyone thought he was riding Morrison’s coattails. Miz said they did end up splitting up, and Miz won the U.S. Title. But people still said he could never rise to the next level. However, he won Money-In-The-Bank. He said the man that was shunned and ostracized is now the biggest star in the entire company. That led him to the reveal of the photo. Drumroll led to the unveiling, which was Miz on the cover of the new edition of WWE Magazine. He said people may wonder why this is a big deal. Well, as a child, he bought every issue of WWE Magazine. Miz demanded to hear from everyone in the arena, admitting they were wrong about him. Miz said those watching in the arena and at home know that they’re wrong…he’s the Miz, and he’s awesome. Daniel Bryan then walked out after Miz’s promo.

Cole of course ranted about Bryan, who got into the ring with a mic. Bryan introduced himself to Mike Mizanin. He said he came out to congratulate Miz, and they have a lot in common. He said people said he’d never make it too, and Miz interrupted by saying Bryan has accomplished nothing. Bryan admitted he isn’t the star of the Miz, as he came out to generic rock music even he can’t identify. Also, he gets a $10 hair cut and has to show his ring gear and ID backstage so he doesn’t get thrown out. He called himself the anti-superstar and that if he did get the opportunity to face Miz for the US Title, he knows he’d win. Miz said Bryan didn’t deserve the chance at the title. Bryan said Miz is right, and if Bryan did win, next month’s WWE Magazine might look like this: A shot of Bryan putting the crossface on Miz with the headline “Miz Taps.” Bryan said he’s not going to attack Miz, but he wants Miz to know that he can beat him, can make him tap out, and will become the next U.S. Champion. Miz said he never liked Bryan, not on NXT, not after Bryan took his spot on Smackdown (I assume he means on Team WWE at Summerslam). Bryan interrupted and asked if the two could have a match for the U.S. Title. Miz accepted and Bryan said he appreciated it. Miz tried to attack, but Bryan hooked on the LeBell lock. Alex Riley ran out of the crowd to attack, but he was soon disposed of. Miz was thrown over the top and to the outside, then he applied the LeBell lock to Riley, who tapped over and over again as Miz steamed from the aisle. After letting go, he looked at Miz’s cover poster, thought for a short time, then kicked it over. Would’ve been nice if it broke. Bryan’s music played as Miz looked on from the aisle. Very nice segment.

-This week in WWE History from Classics on Demand: September 4, 1995, WCW Monday Nitro’s debut. They did not shy away from mentioning or showing Eric Bischoff. Of course, they had to remind everyone that Monday Night Raw ended up winning the war.

-Tonight, Orton vs. Barrett.

-Edge was walking backstage, heading to the ring for action.

[Commercial Break]

-Edge came out for his match. Apparently, Cole received a message from the GM on his Blackberry, and the announcement was made that Cena will face either Wade Barrett or Randy Orton next week, depending on who wins their match later.

(4) Edge vs. The Great Khali
Well, he’s no Zack Ryder. Before the match, Edge looked at the laptop and the podium. The paper in the computer was clearly shown. He wanted to take it out but the ref made him get in the ring. Edge then went to ringside and mocked Khali, walking around like Frankenstein’s monster. He got in the ring to break the count, then went back to aping Khali. Edge went after Ranjin Singh, so Khali grabbed him by the head. Edge got away and back to ringside. This time, Khali went after him. Edge kicked at his legs and made it back into the ring before Khali, getting the win.

Winner: Edge, at 1:17.

The GM e-mailed Cole, and he was not satisfied with the result. Therefore the match will be restarted and it’ll be a no-DQ, over-the-to-rope challenge.

[Commercial Break]

(5) Edge vs. The Great Khali- No-DQ, Over-The-To-Rope Challenge
Khali went on offense first with a shot to the head, then a clothesline. Hard chop by Khali to the chest of Edge. Edge was sent into the ropes, but slid under the bottom rope for a breather. Khali went out after him, walking over the top rope on his way out. Cole pointed that out and laughed openly about the referee not calling it, but Lawler said you have to be thrown over. A spear by Edge was blocked by Khali and he threw Edge between the ropes and to the outside. Khali tried to step over the top to get him again, but Edge took out his feet and Khali tumbled to the floor. I guess that’s enough to count as a match-ender.

Winner: Edge, at 1:44. Rules didn’t make a ton of sense here, but whatever.

-Wade Barrett faces Randy Orton later tonight.

[Commercial Break]

-The announcers ran down the Night of Champions card. I like how they’re not using any fancy theme music for this one.

-Jericho was shown looking off in the distance backstage. Josh Mathews walked up and asked if he could ask Jericho a few questions. Jericho didn’t even acknowledge Mathews. Mathews asked a question anyway about his future plans. Jericho didn’t answer, but kept looking off into the distance. The camera zoomed in, then panned back to show John Morrison taking a seat next to Jericho. “Bad day, huh?” was Morrison’s opening line. He asked Jericho if he thought he was still the best in the world at what he does. Morrison patted Jericho on the back and said things would get better. Jericho had a sour look on his face, turned to Morrison, then turned back. The segment ended with both men looking off camera.

-Sheamus walked out. He’s joining the announcers for commentary for the main event. That match takes place next.

[Commercial Break]

-Lawler plugged Cena facing the winner of the following match.

-Edge and John Cena joined Sheamus as guest commentators.

(6) Wade Barrett vs. Randy Orton
Orton hammered away on Barrett with rights in the corner. Clothesline took Barrett down and the two fought in front of the announce table. Barrett was thrown head-first into the desk. More hard right hands from Orton. He stomped on the gut of Barrett and dropped a few knees. Reverse Irish Whip by Barrett, who ran over Orton with a big boot. Barrett then responded with right hands of his own. Neck-breaker for a two-count. At the top of the hour, Orton suplexed out of a rest-hold. Big back-breaker by Barrett and Cena and Edge put the youngster over. Barrett seemed to signal for the end, but Orton elbowed out. Back-breaker by Orton, who ran over Barrett with a few clotheslines and a powerslam. Desperation back-drop to ringside by Barrett. All of a sudden, Darren Young walked out. He asked Barrett if he thinks he can kick him out of Nexus and get away with it? Young said he’d show Barrett why he wasn’t the weakest link…he’s the missing link. Young stood on the steps and lectured Barrett as Orton got in the ring and RKO’d his opponent for the win.

Winner: Orton, at 6:04.

Orton invited Young in the ring, then RKO’d him. Edge got one as well, followed by Sheamus. Cena opted not to show his hand at this point. They replayed the Young distraction and the RKOs. Back live, Orton and Cena went face-to-face. Cena removed his hat, then his shirt, readying himself for a brouhaha. The two men stared at each other, with close-ups on their facials, as the show faded out.

Man, killer show with so many goofups

The Cena vs Gabriel matchup screen had them posing, Justin in a Tshirt, and then when they were finished, he was without his shirt.

Miz's briefcase gets knocked open, and surprisingly, there's no contract in there. Yes i know it's just a prop, but still, a piece of paper with some print would have worked.

Cole with his 'blackberry' receiving a text message, I thought gave away the destruction of the laptop, but I was wrong.

As I said, I loved the show tonight, Gabriel showed promise.

Note to John Cena's future opponents: NEVER Try to give him a clothesline, he will ALWAYS duck it and turn it into his backdrop.

Giving each Nexus a microphone shows another element to their characters we rarely get to see, makes them seem more human.

First good show since SummerSlam. I quite liked it. Jericho and Morrison had the best match on Raw in some while, and the finish was surprising and intriguing. Miz and Bryan had a really good angle. Justin Gabriel did well against Cena. Alicia Fox was crowned Undefined Women's Champion. And

*and*

AND

the Raw segment of the year, Edge and Ryder's Edgeheads reunion in which Edge confided that he loves his mom, Ryder gave him advice as a former N.O.C., and Ryder shouted WOO WOO WOO YOU KNOW IT into the sky like Moses.

I'm also hoping this leads somewhere with Jericho re-upping with the E. I don't think they'd give him a second segment if he didn't. The idea of a reluctant Jericho/Morrison partnership sounds intriguing and could be the spark that Morrison needs after months of stagnating.

So the plot thickens with the laptop. If it's a phony laptop, does this make Cole the GM now?

Loved the Miz/Bryan segment and I love the angle they're taking with it. Both are guys told they'd never make it and are both incredibly similar, despite being incredibly different. I wouldn't mind seeing these two eventually patch up their differences to become a major heel force.

I guess I can throw out my idea of Darren Young joining Straight Edge Society 2.0.

I too enjoyed the Miz/Bryan segment. The Miz was just ROLLING with his portion, and when Bryan came and said "Hi Mike Mizanin, my name is Daniel Bryan" I knew it would continue to be wonderful. 10 dollar haircuts, "generic rock music", intensity from both guys. The whole segment was great, complete with Alex Riley running in and getting crossfaced. And the whole thing where Riley was reaching out, looking right at the Miz begging for help was EXCELLENT.

"I love my mom"

I love her too".

*Beat*

You know, I was HOPING for a Zack Ryder vs Edge. Loved the promo there though.

I liked Tarver and Gabriel on the mic tonight. If Tarver continues to improve they could use him I'm sure.

Commence speculation NOW; Cole E-mails himself on the BlackBerry which he then reads. Why introduce the BlackBerry otherwise (maybe to tease the destruction of the laptop?).

Jericho is Jericho.

Great Raw with a few botches to keep it from being an excellent Raw. Promo botches were the theme of the night with Miz reverting at times to his "host of Smackdown" days and Alicia Fox attempting to become an "undefined" champion. I still loved the Miz/Bryan segment overall.

The wrestling matches held up their end of the bargain, as even Cena/Gabriel was really good (wasn't expecting wrestling holds from Cena). I even thought the comedy segments worked, and that doesn't usually happen either (Ted Dibiase making the "walking away" hand motion to Maryse was a highlight).

FELLA tally from final segment: Sheamus 3, Cena and Edge 1.

How come Cole didn't 'And I Quote' off the blackberry?
Slight hole in the Cole GM Theory: GM is mad at Edge and puts him in the top rope challenge with Khali. If Cole was thus the GM, wouldn't he have been the one ignoring Khali eliminating himself and Lawler going off about it, rather than it being the other way around?

I think it had more to do with the fact Cole didn't understand the match rules and seemed genuinely flustered by the entire thing. It was an ok show, but between Boise St/VT and the Empire Strikes Back, I saw maybe half of it. What I saw was ok if not generic. Cena defies the odds again, Orton's monster push continues and Miz has the fans in the palm of his hand, Nexus is foiled again wash, rinse, repeat. I do feel bad for Bryan since I got the feeling the fans really don't care about him, he did good on the mic, but you could tell the fans would have been ok if he Miz punked him out. I am just getting tired of the mystery GM thing and I am wondering if it will be revealed next week when they go head to head with Monday Night Football or teased to promote interest for the following week when they know they are going to get blown out next week. Regardless, it has also gotten stale and needs a push.

Most I've enjoyed RAW since SummerSlam. Most I've enjoyed anything John Morrison's had to say in a lot longer than that. I had much love for Edge and Zack's banter, much less love for the Maryse and DiBiase malraky which can't end soon enough for my liking.

I'm not sure a win over Gabriel really qualifies as odd-defying stuff. Cena may even have been viewed as a marginal favourite given his slight edge in terms of experience wrestling in wrestling matches and winning wrestling related championships.

Defies the odds in the sense, he was done and out when Gabriel went for his finisher, to miraculously get enough strength to hit a giant Attitude Adjustment out of nowhere. Now, this happens in almost every match with a face, but with Cena it has became very noticeable.

I backed up and re-watched the Miz/Bryan segment a second time. I loved Bryan's smile as he looked at Miz with Riley in the lock - it was amusing and creepy at the same time.

Also backed up the Starship Pain on Jericho - ouch. I think it knocked the wind out of him with made his forlorn look so much more on after the match.

Great show BUT, I need to know what the pin was on Miz's lapel. Screen cap anyone?

I'd offer a third pick of watching Impact and pointing out every time a face made a comeback after seeming down and out to try to get the point across, but... that would involve watching Impact. So I'll have to leave that to someone else to do.

I guess, the line in the first post about it happens in every match gets ignored in my posts and its just easier to attack that I like TNA instead of actually reading the post.

The line in your first post about it happening in every match might have been a clue that the rest of the thought was probably redundant at best and kind of trollish at worst.

I think the GM thing is ramping up for its stirring conclusion. I think it's going to be Cole, who's slowly becoming more of an insane/evil person under the facade of professionalism. I think the big reveal will come in a major angle helping Miz do something with MITB. I think Cole will be great at it. And I have no idea who the voice of Raw will be since J.R. is almost certainly out of lives. As much as I like Josh Mathews, those are big shoes to step into, and for Todd Grisham they're enormous.

He had a goofy smile on most of the time, but it turned into a creepy one once he locked in that hold (in the sense it looked like he was enjoying himself). And the Miz did his part in the exchange, just letting Riley sit there taking the hold.

I'll admit a part of me was hoping Kaval would run-in to help Bryan, but this also worked. What else worked? Miz making a "minor league" comment and Bryan cut him off and point blank laid down the challenge

People can say what they want about the NXT concept, but it did bring us Nexus. And and Nexus angle has done a great job of introducing several newcomers in an interesting way. Out of all of them it's easy to see that Barrett, Gabriel, and Sheffield are all keepers. Slater and Tarver could get there too. Meanwhile, Bryan missed a large portion of the angle but has a solid program with the Miz.

EDIT: Justin, I agree with you. I could easily see Cole reaching Eric Bischoff levels of heel-GM-ness.

This is the sort of statement that would lead one to question your credibility when judging these things.

I love how CRZ spelled it out for you and you STILL got it wrong. And honestly, if Smackdown was as good as we all think it was than why hasn't it been drawing significantly higher ratings than RAW?
