TONIGHT: Raw is airing on tape delay from London, England. WWE.com is advertising Randy Orton vs. CM Punk in a Wrestlemania rematch, as well as Michael Cole getting knighted. With news of the draft next week, how will WWE set it up on this week’s show? Extreme Rules is also less than two weeks away, so we’ll see more hype for that, specifically the Triple Threat title match. The cut-in during Tough Enough had JR and King doing announcing, and they previewed Sin Cara vs. Alex Riley for this evening.


-WWE Open.

-Michael Cole introduced the show from the O2 Arena, in London. He was joined by JR and Jerry Lawler at ringside.

-R-Truth came out first. The announcers were shown at ringside and did that kind of banter that makes my ears bleed. Truth asked if he could have time to speak, but the crowd booed. He spoke anyway. The crowd did the “what” chants as he talked about having problems in the past, but now, his problem is being in line to be the WWE Champion. “I’m not perfect, but I am the Truth,” he said, and he said, like it or not, he’d be walking out of the Triple Threat match WWE Champion. No reaction to that, as no one buys that he had a chance. He even said he’d be the fighting-est champion ever. He closed with his signature line, then John Morrison’s music hit, and he walked out smiling.

The men hugged in the ring, and Morrison congratulated his former tag partner. Morrison did say lady luck was on his side last week, and said he was lucky to get through the three guys he had to face. Morrison said Truth wasn’t in the greatest shape, then showed a video of last week…during Cena’s entrance, Truth was given a bottle of water to drink out of and pour on himself as he slouched in the corner. The announcers made a big deal about it, but I don’t get the issue here. Truth asked the crowd if he was in good shape, but he should’ve known they were against him. Morrison said he was in good shape for an athlete who smokes. Truth said he’s trying to quit. He said Morrison was trying to get in his head by challenging to a match where Truth puts up his shot. Morrison said the Draft is next week, and this could be the last time he and Truth fight. Truth said he’s not ready, he just came out to celebrate. Morrison reminded Truth he was going to take on all comers as a champion. Truth said the people in London do not want to see the both of them…the fans booed and JR quietly said, “he’s right about that.” THAT was funny. Truth pretended they all cheered and said it was on. He jokingly asked anyone if they had a bottle of water or a cigarette. Morrison said he forgot to ask for luck, then told a ref to come out. “Fight” chants broke out. One of the stranger opening segments (and one that may have had Vince’s fingerprints all over it), but the crowd hurt it a bit.

(1) R-Truth vs. John Morrison – Truth’s spot at Extreme Rules on the line
Couple quick pin attempts, then Truth went to the outside. H easked for some water and got it from the timekeeper. He drank some, regrouped, then readied to get back into the ring. They took a break with just under a minute gone by.

[Commercial Break]

They were back about four minutes in, and the competitors seemed to be at a stalemate. Even JR was trying to get his shot in at Cole. Roll-up by Truth, another inside cradle and another two-count. Morrison with a few clotheslines and then a spinning heel kick for two. Back with more from Morrison, including a dropkick. Suplex-stunner by Truth for a two-count. Axe kick missed and Morrison then missed a springboard cross-body. Starship Pain by Morrison for three.

Winner: Morrison, at 7:03. OK then.

Morrison seemed ready to shake hands after the match, but Truth was still upset. As Morrison celebrated on the second rope, Truth pulled him down hard. Morrison took a back bump off of it and the fans finally had permission to boo Truth, and did so vigorously, even chanting “you suck.” Truth then hit a running knee on Morrison, sending him to the outside. Running knee to the head with Morrison kneeling near the barricade. Truth went in for more, grabbing Morrison by the chin and then hugging him. He helped Morrison up, put his arm around his neck and started walking with him…then pushed him down. Truth took a bottle of water from the announce table and started drinking from it. Then he nailed Morrison in the head with it. “R-Truth sucks” chant. It still wasn’t over, as Truth picked Morrison up again and went face-to-face. “You did this John,” he said, then gave him Paydirt on the outside. Was this match legally binding in the eyes of the Raw GM, since this went against his specific wishes for the match last week? I guess because he didn’t chime in, the stipulation stands? Morrison then took a pack of cigs from someone in the crowd and put one in his mouth, then lit up. He went back to Morrison and blew smoke at him. This whole thing was kinda strange. And long. Must be short on creative for the night.

[Commercial Break]

-They showed the skyline of London as Cole talked about the Draft being next week.

-We saw clips of Truth turning on Morrison and all the stuff he did. I wish I could’ve just seen that video package as opposed to sitting through the beat-down that seemed to go on forever. On camera, JR and King talked about the beating.

-Evan Bourne was in the ring, ready for action, when Vickie Guerrero came out. She introduced her business associate, the new-and-improved Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler had his hair cut it was brown instead of platinum blonde. He didn’t look too happy about it…or it was his new intense look. Vickie trash-talked Bourne off-mic before the match.

(2) Evan Bourne vs. Dolph Ziggler
Actually, Ziggler looks like a bigger Evan Bourne. Bourne went for a springboard cross-body, but Ziggler dropkicked him in mid-air. Cover got two. Bit of a bow-and-arrow from Ziggler. Kicks by Bourne, then a double-stomp to a seated Ziggler, which was unique. He went for Air Bourne, but Ziggler moved and Bourne landed on his feet. However, Ziggler came from behind and nailed him with the Zig-Zag for the win.

Winner: Ziggler, at 2:12. Fine match to get over Ziggler’s new attitude.

-The announcers hyped the new WWE All-Stars video game.

-Cole said he would be knighted tonight.

[Commercial Break]

-Lawler talked about Sin Cara coming up, and JR threw it to a video retrospective on Edge’s career. The music accompanying it was 3 Doors Down’s “When You’re Young,” which sounds suspiciously like their earlier hit, “Here Without You.”

-Lawler and JR talking about Alberto Del Rio throwing Edge a retirement party on Smackdown this Friday night.

-Miz came out with Alex Riley. Miz got the mic and spoke about what happened earlier, and he was not happy that Morrison was subbed in for Truth. And apparently, the match is a steel cage, which Miz just threw out there in the middle of his promo. I don’t think that had been mentioned yet. Miz said he could lose the title without being pinned at Extreme Rules, and demanded the GM rectify the situation. He told Riley to give him a chair, so he sat down in the middle of the ring.

[Commercial Break]

-Miz was in the middle of talking as he and Riley were also showing off Miz’s new baseball-style t-shirt, with “The Miz” and the number 40 on the back, representing him being the 40th WWE Champion. Miz said he’d still be WWE Champion after the match. He began to do his catchphrase, but Cara’s music interrupted it. Thank God JR can pronounce his name correctly. Miz and Riley advanced on Cara in the ring, but before they could pounce, John Cena came out to stand side-by-side with Cara. The GM buzzed in at this point, finally. Cole read the e-mail on his iPad. The GM turned things into a tag match, with Riley and Miz taking on Cara and Cena.

(3) Alex Riley & The Miz vs. Sin Cara & John Cena
Cena teed off on Riley to start. He bulldogged Riley down, then they went to break :30 into the match.

[Commercial Break]

Cena and Miz faced off in the ring and Cena got the best of their exchange. Miz dodged the Attitude Adjustment, but put Cena down with a side slam of his own. Miz picked up a near-fall on Cena. Riley tagged in and pelted Cena with body blows. Corner clothesline by Riley on Cena. Dueling Cena chants took place as Miz gave Cena two boots as Cena was seated on the mat. Corner clothesline by Miz, then a tag and a cover by A.Ri for two. Front slam by Cena and both men were down at the 6:10 mark of the match. Hot tags made by both men. Cara springboarded into the ring…and just stood there. Not sure if Miz was supposed to do something or Cara. Handspring back elbow found the mark, but he and Miz ended up falling over each other. Not pretty. Cara double-teamed Miz and Riley, but ended up on the outside. Miz slammed him back-first into the ring apron. Roll-up by Cara for two, as a big boot put Cara back down. He was taken to the heel corner and the heels suplexed him. More chants for Cena as he stood on the apron. Hard running clothesline by Riley for a two-count. Corner clothesline missed, and Miz bounced right out of the corner. Both men made tags at 9:40. Vintage Cena on Riley. AA on Riley, then he tagged Cara. Springboard moonsault that barely caught Riley. Still enough to pick up the win.

Winners: Cena and Cara, at 10:27. Little bit of a down week for Cara after last week, I thought.

-Tonight, Michael Cole will be knighted. Has Cole never heard of Bono?

-Also, CM Punk vs. Randy Orton in a Wrestlemania rematch.

[Commercial Break]

-Another Awesome Kong vignette aired. We got to see a little more of her face as she played with a brunette doll this time, then ripped its legs off.

-They showed the Tower Bridge in London.

(4) Eve Torres vs. Nikki Bella
Brie worked the mic on the way to the ring and said their return match may never happen, because Eve may get drafted to Smackdown next week. She’s got quite the deep voice. It was Nikki for most of the match, but Nikki missed a double-knee to the chest of Eve and Eve took over and picked up the win with a small package.

Winner: Eve, at 1:47. The logical next step to keep the Eve vs. Brie program going.

As Eve celebrated, Cole got the mic and said after the break, he would become Sir Michael Cole.

[Commercial Break]

-Cole was in the ring for his big ceremony. He introduced his trainer and friend, the man who will team with him to beat Jerry Lawler and JR at Extreme Rules, Jack Swagger. Swagger walked out in a suit and brought a robe. He put the robe on Cole in the ring. Cole took a scroll from the table and Swagger read from it. It basically said that after tonight, Cole will be known as “Sir Michael Cole,” as tonight, the WWE Universe will witness the knighting ceremony. He called for the royal majesty, Queen Elizabeth. Some old lady walked out dressed as the queen, with two suited guys at her side. Swagger stood behind the queen as Cole knelt on the stool. The queen read a prepared statement and asked Cole if he will uphold the tradition of the United Kingdom. Cole promised to do so. The Queen then knighted Cole and Cole kissed her in celebration. Cole asked for a round of applause for himself, then tried to get a chant started up. Cole started a “Sir Michael Cole” chant, but the crowd chanted “sucks” after it. Swagger whispered to Cole and Cole said the peasants like Lawler and JR should get in the ring and kiss his feet. Cole even removed his sock and shoe to show off his gross foot. For some reason, Lawler and Ross obliged, which led to Lawler getting attacked by Swagger. JR went after Cole, but Swagger got him from behind. Cole told him to kiss his feet, but JR told him to go to hell. Swagger applied the ankle-lock and Cole shoved JR’s head into his foot. This is pretty unappealing. Cole and Swagger took a victory lap.

-Punk and Orton face off in a Wrestlemania re-match later tonight.

[Commercial Break]

(5) Santino Marella vs. Sheamus
Cole and Josh Mathews were handling the announcing. Cole said he had athlete’s foot. When Sheamus came to the ring, he told Santino that the last time they were in England, Marella embarrassed him with that tea party. So because he might not get revenge because of the Draft coming up, he wants to take him out now.

Sheamus took the fight to Santino right off the bat. Marella fought out of a powerslam then did a split to avoid a clothesline. He stayed in the split too long and Sheamus booted him in the face. Short-arm clothesline by Sheamus. Rest-hold applied by Sheamus. Sheamus dropped a few elbows on Santino for a two-count. More of a beating from Sheamus, and more resting. Running splash in the corner by the US Champion. Santino dodged a second charge and he went right for the Cobra, but he was too off-balance to do so. Sheamus kicked him in the hand, then gave Santino the Brogue Kick. Fin.

Winner: Sheamus, at 3:36. Fine win for Sheamus, and pretty much a long-ish squash.

-The announcers discussed what happened earlier, when Truth lost his WWE Title shot. They showed video of it as well.

-Split-screen showed Orton and Punk walking. Their match is next.

[Commercial Break]

-More exterior shots of London.

(6) CM Punk vs. Randy Orton
The two men started things slowly as the crowd engaged in a dueling “Randy Orton/CM Punk” chant. European uppercuts by Orton, who then went to work stomping a mud hole in Punk. Overhead forearms to the chest by Orton. Punk fought back with fists and knees. Mathews mentioned that the New Nexus members have been banned from ringside. Knee to the face by Punk in the corner. Another dueling chant started up. Orton exploded out of the corner with a few clotheslines, then a scoop slam. Orton set up for the RKO 2:30 into the match. But Punk countered and Orton landed on the back of his neck. Punk gave the camera a “phew” look, and they went to break at about 2:50.

[Commercial Break]

Back to action at 6:28 of the match. High knee-drop by Punk for two. Orton tried a comeback, but Punk cut it short. Snap suplex for two. “Come on,” he said to the ref, dejected after not registering the fall. Whip off the ropes, Punk gave Orton a knee-lift for two. Punk took the fight to the outside, nailing Orton with a flying clothesline and jokingly asking the ref if he could pin Orton on the outside. Back inside the ring, only a two-count from Punk. Punk was lax in setting up a suplex, allowing Orton to sneak in a small package for two. Dueling “RKO/GTS” chants this time. Orton bit Punk’s hand to break out of a headscissors. Back suplex by Orton countered the bulldog. Punk with a kidney shot, then a bulldog. Punk again showed signs of frustration. Orton turned things around with a back-breaker, then an Olympic Slam for two. Punk brought Orton throat-first over the top rope to create separation. Springboard clothesline (though it looked like Punk was going to bite it) for two. Punk to the top again, but Orton gave him several right hands. He suplexed Punk off the top rope at the 14:00 mark. Cover for two. Punk ended up kicking Orton in the head for a near-fall, after the Orton DDT, GTS and RKO were all countered. More frustration from Punk, and more dueling chants. He got Orton up for the GTS, but Orton slipped out and rolled Punk up for the victory.

Winner: Orton, at 15:37. Good enough match that told the story of Punk’s desperation well.

Orton didn’t have time to celebrate, as the music of the New Nexus played and they all came out (sans Husky Harris, of course). Mason Ryan asked for Orton, so Michael McGillicutty and David Otunga got Orton to his feet. Jumping uranage by Ryan. “Feel like a winner now?” Punk asked him. Otunga and McGill both wanted a piece of Orton, but Ryan shoved them off and said “he’s mine.” Ryan set up for a punt, but Punk stopped him. He wanted to take Orton out himself with that move, but Ryan told him to back off. Punk again attempted to talk Ryan out of it, but Ryan was in a zone. Punk pointed for Ryan to leave the corner and finally he did so, seething all the way. Punk ran at Orton, but Orton got up and RKO’d Punk. Punk has not looked great lately in this feud. Orton back up the ramp, surviving yet another Nexus attack, as Punk went crazy with rage inside the ring.

I actually really enjoyed the whole R-Truth/John Morrison opening half hour. Crazy rambling face R-Truth was something I was feeling good about getting into, then he turned into batshit crazy rambling R-Truth that gets to smoke on tv and I'm excited.

Who wants to mess with the crazy street guy?

The whole thing kind of felt like something Heyman used to turn out.

I agree; R-Truth's heel turn was awesome, and the crowd was really into it, too.

I could have gone my entire life without seeing Michael Cole's nasty bare foot and been happy. (I changed the channel when he was taking off his shoe, but when I came back, the next match was about to start and he had his foot up on the table. BLECH.)

The people in London should be crying for a refund. The Truth-Morrison segment was some of the worst crap in years. It also shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that neither Truth or Morrison deserve to be a world champion.

Punk and Orton is recycled garbage.. however, I did like how Mason Ryan came across as a psycho...

"It doesn't make you a bad guy that you smoke cigarettes."

So then the smoker turns heel.

Now, I just want to be sure I have this straight: Morrison (who btw is a terrible babyface) comes out and acts like a colossal dick; humiliating his supposed friend Truth for drinking a water between "rounds" of a gauntlet match (which is actually smart, if you ask me), telling him he only won said match because he got lucky, demeaning him for smoking, and basically hoodwinking him into putting his #1 contendership on the line... so the end it's TRUTH who turns heel. Say what?

At least him using smoking as a heel move here makes more sense than when The Giant did it in WCW... and I do like crazy rambling heel Truth, don't get me wrong. Just that set up was way too long and way too dumb/weird.

I was also totally hating on the make up job on Cole's foot for being typical WWE overdoing it, when they came back from break and Cole is crowing "It's proof I'm an athlete! It's athlete's foot!" and it promptly paid the whole thing off for me. The only thing I may have laughed harder at was the ad where they said you could RSVP for Del Rio's Retirement Party For Edge on Smackdown via the WWE Facebook.

I hate to say it, because I know they won't do it, but Sin Cara needs to stop being told to work like a generic WWE Lightweight and start getting shown off in some matches with Bryan and Bourne or something, because so far he is just not clicking.

Nice hair cut Dolph, now you look like every body else.

Oh, and I LOVED hearing the British fans yelling "Won't somebody think of the children!" when Truth was smoking.

Because it is some of the crap that Heyman used to put out... remember the Smoking Big Show from the WCW days? Sure helped kill his gimmick in the WCW when they did that.

I for one never understood this love people have for Paul Hayman because EVERYTHING Hayman has done turns to bankruptcy and crap.

At first, JoMo was acting heelish for tricking Truth into giving up his PPV slot, but then Truth turned heel afterwards? And his heel gimmick is that he drinks water and smokes?? Such a weird segment... That goofy look when Truth had the cigarette in his mouth was priceless.

Serious Dolph looks like Evan Bourne's big brother X Orton but if it's what it takes to move up the card...he can't change his name but he can adjust his look.

On a different note, who puts together the trailers/graphics for WWE Films? What is with the waaacky lower-case comedy font for That's What I Am, which appears to be a fairly straight-laced coming of age film?

I think Dolph's look makes him more credible, as much as he can be with that moniker. I like it a lot.

If this salvage booking makes Truth and Morrison more active -- more interesting -- I'm all for it. One of them needed to turn.

Punk got up from that RKO pretty quick. And kudos to Ryan for eschewing the powerbomb. A big-man Side Effect is novel and thus interesting. Orton's chain of the 3.0 backbreaker to the Orton Slam is nice.

I hope Sheamus's star kneepads are the RAW GM.

No, the heel gimmick is that he probably didn't have it all together to start with. He was flawed, but he tried to stay positive. The fact that he got duped by Morrison when he even called Morrison out on his tactics was the last straw and all that positivity that he used to be a good guy was out the window because the guy lost all his marbles at once. Only now has he realized that he can be destructive even if it means accepting those flaws.

... or he'll turn into a joke in a week or two and be the guy who tires out easily and goes on a losing streak. Either way it was a strong segment and it was more character than either of these guys has been allowed to show in the months leading up to that moment.

The reason R-Truth shouldn't be in the main event picture is because he would embarrass the rest of the roster if he was given the opportunity to show off his acting chops. He may be limited in what roles he could play but he could damn well play those roles better than anyone else in wrestling today could play anything.

R-Truth getting over drinking water as a heel move is just begging for a soda to sponsor the WWE with a face coming out and drinking said soda during his match. It'll probably just end in Stone Cold stunning him, though.

I enjoyed the opening segment. And I'm shocked that R-Truth and John Morrison were given the first 25 minutes of Raw exclusively. And now John Morrison is in the main event at the next PPV. I wish *I* could be in the WWE doghouse. I'm going to go hunt down Trish and be a dick to her. Maybe I'll get hired as a writer, then. (Of course, I'm sure that John Morrison secretly apologized to Trish while Melina was blowing Vince, because it couldn't possibly be that the entire thing was a work.)

Congratulations to Sin Cara for finally hitting his entrance leap successfully.

A triple threat steel cage match is the stupidest possible match of which I can conceive. It's like they actively sat around trying to figure out how to top the reverse battle royal.

I also think they should have had Morrison go heel instead of Truth... When Morrison was heel with the Miz, everyone thought Morrison was going to be the star... When Morrison turned face, his stock went down and really has never gone up.

And speaking of being out of shape... Has anyone noticed that Morrison's abs don't show as much anymore???

Let's just hope R-Truth gets drafted to Smackdown the WWE forgets this whole night with him.

The crowd reaction during this entire Truth-Morrison segment was dead.. when you can hear a single voice yelling things from the crowd, it's a dead crowd.

There's still a (pretty good!) chance Truth somehow gets reinstated with the match ending up a Fatal Four Way...and then you can REALLY see some Internet heads explode.

Biggest blown opportunity since Lawler not piledriving Cole at Mania.

Truth should have TOTALLY stuck that cigerette in Morrison's eye. That's just feuding 101. Then you can milk a "blind" angle with Morrison.

I don't care if they pronounce Sin Cara's name correctly or incorrectly, I just want everyone to be consistent and pronounce it the same way. They should have a meeting on this.

Mason Ryan was pretty awesome tonight.

Is this from a Bryan/Dave update? Is this fantasy booking? ;)

There sure were a lot of loud chants for a dead crowd, the most amusing being the "That's illegal!" chant when Truth lit the cigarette. Are you sure you weren't watching with your TV on mute?

If it stays a cage match, it would almost have to be a 4 way. The question is, can Cena get all 3 guys up for an AA at the same time? I imagine that any two of them weigh no more than The Big Show, so he should be able to handle it weight wise, making it a question of balance.

Hopefully they think to put R-Truth in the middle of the sandwich for the aesthetic benefit.

I liked the R-Truth turn, probably the most interested in him since he signed with WWE...the beat down on Morrison afterwards was nicely ran I thought.

It's coming out that Kong will be known as Kharma when she finally debuts. For WWE names, it's not terrible.

WWE Draft next week, with the Lockout in the NFL, I'm a little surprised they aren't taking a shot at the NFL.

Yeah, it's gotta go Fatal Four-Way, I would think. That was a nice turn from Truth and I'm wishing CRZ was still doing recaps so that he'd brand him as "SMOKIN' TRUTH" or make some clever pun with those annoying "Truth" tobacco ads. I do wonder if the cigarette thing was merely for cheap heat, though, because you could hear a chunk of the crowd chanting "That's illegal!" But for as awesome as the Truth turn was, it doesn't erase that AWFUL opening promo. It almost makes me wish they had turned Morrison heel, so he could go back to being cool instead of looking like a goofball.

I'm going to join the camp that hates Dolph's new look. His old look was just fine, as it made him look like the second coming of Curt Hennig. Now he just looks generic.

Even considering the show was taped, I was still surprised to see them end the show with Orton/Punk. Good main event, though.

Kong being named "Kharma" works on a few levels, namely she's there to balance the scales of justice in the Diva division. Or other forms of Kharmic consequences.

Missed most of the show, but did see the Cena/Cara vs Miz/Riley match. I liked what I saw from Cara. The moonsault was a botch, but no different than Morrison's finisher. And wouldn't you know, he's apparently main eventing a PPV.

Speaking of Morrison, I look forward to some crazy antics in the steel cage. Backstage heat or no backstage heat, they'd be fools not to have Morrison in a cage match.

I cannot speak for Japan having issues with China, but I know a shitload of chinese people who have problems with Japan (but, I was in the part of china that was occupied by the japanese during ww2, So it's a lot of historical bad blood).
