TONIGHT: Yup, there’s another PPV this Sunday, Hell in a Cell, and we’ve got a Triple Threat match for the WWE Title inside a Cell: John Cena vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Triple H. I’m sure we’ll get some follow-up to the firings of Miz and R-Truth last week. What’s the over-under on when they show up on Raw? I’ll say “by the start of the second hour”! Also, one match announced: Punk vs. Del Rio.


-WWE Open.

-RAW Open.

-Raw Supershow, live from Kansas City, Missouri, opened with the camera panning the crowd and after the open by Cole, JR plugged Punk vs. Del Rio. The announcers were shown on-camera, with Booker T filling in for Jerry “The King” Lawler.

-They showed the Hell in a Cell hanging over the ring.

-Triple H’s music hit, and he came out. I never tire of this start. During his entrance, they showed him firing Miz and R-Truth last week, and their attack on him at the end of the show. He told fans Miz and Truth were not fired because of some conspiracy or because of his ego, but because of this: and then he showed a WWE.com video of Miz and Truth, after Night of Champions, bragging about everything they had done. And it was spliced in with video from NOC, making it a bit over-produced for what they were going for. Then they showed another video, this time of Miz and Truth apologizing to Hunter last week. Back live, Hunter told Miz and Truth they were fired for savagely beating an official, and making a weak apology. He said he knew he was going to fire them when he fined them, but he squeezed one more main event out of them before doing so. He said there’s still a $250,000 fine out there in Mark Henry’s name, for putting his hands on JR and injuring Jerry Lawler. He wanted to send a message to the locker room.

Hunter said he fired his best friend for lying to him because it was right for the WWE. He said he’s always going to do what’s best for the company. “Excuse me!” The dulcet tones of Vickie Guerrero lit up the arena, and she and Dolph Ziggler walked out together. Ziggler said he was glad Hunter is out, talking about doing what’s right for the company. But he wanted to know what Hunter was going to do for him. He reminded him of what happened, then showed a still of Hugh Jackman punching him, along with all the headlines it made. Hunter said Jackman simply punched Ziggler in his glass jaw and didn’t know what Ziggler wanted him to do. He joked that he’d get some extra security for Ziggler for when the muppets come around next month.

Cody Rhodes then walked out, objecting to the jokes Hunter was making. Rhodes talked about what happened to him on Smackdown thanks to Randy Orton and how he had staples put in his head. He asked Hunter what he was going to do about it. Hunter said they should’ve stapled is mouth, then said Orton attacked him in front of his wife one time, but instead of whining to the boss, he kicked Orton’s ass on his front yard. Christian then interrupted and said this isn’t routine for him to interrupt others’ conversations, but what happened to him last week was much worse than what happened to anyone else.

He complained about Sheamus costing him his match on Friday, but Triple H called him an idiot, reminding him it was a Lumberjack match on Friday, that’s what they do. Christian asked Ziggler and Rhodes if they wanted to join him in filing the biggest lawsuit in WWE history. Christian said he’d change his mind if Hunter gave him, you guessed it, one more match. Hunter said he’d give Christian one more match…at Hell in a Cell…against Sheamus. And this Friday, he’ll give him one more match…against Randy Orton. And tonight, just for pissing him off, Christian will get John Cena. Christian threw a tizzy and said it was “unacceptable.” He then left. Ziggler asked Hunter if he’d do the right thing. For that, Triple H was making Ziggler defend the US Title against the man who beat him last week – Zack Ryder. Ziggler stomped off and Hunter said since Rhodes has a zipper in his head, he’ll give him the night off. Rhodes said Hunter should take the night off. Hunter wanted Rhodes to defend his title tonight, and Rhodes kept baiting Hunter, so Hunter made it a Triple Threat. Then a Fatal Four-Way. Finally, it ended up being a 10-man Battle Royal. And that match for the IC Title is next. Hunter had to be Mr. Cool again, but it got a lot of young-ish heels to rub elbows with him.

-Cena vs. Christian is still to come tonight.

[Commercial Break]

-Many of the IC Title combatants were in the ring out of break. Sin Cara got his own entrance and it was the babyface Cara. Sheamus followed to make ten.

(1) 10-Man Battle Royal for the Intercontinental Championship
Cara, John Morrison, Ted DiBiase, Rhodes, Zeke Jackson, Drew McIntyre, Alex Riley, Daniel Bryan, Justin Gabriel, and Sheamus were the participants. McIntyre was out :15 seconds in via Jackson. Thirty seconds in, the impostor Sin Cara pulled the real one out of the ring and went int the ring. He was eliminated by Bryan at :38. The real Cara then headscissored the fake one at ringside. The real Cara tried to get back in the ring, but the refs wouldn’t allow it. Rhodes and DiBiase fought outside the ring, then back in. Gabriel skinned the cat and pulled Riley out. They fought on the apron and Sheamus gave Riley the Brogue Kick at 1:52, though it looked like it missed. Sheamus then kicked Gabriel out at 1:58. Jackson tossed out Morrison and Bryan just after 2:00. Sheamus and Jackson went at it in the middle of the ring, with Sheamus getting the better of it. Rhodes tossed DiBiase out at 2:58, then Rhodes low-bridged Jackson out at 3:16. Down to Rhodes and Sheamus. Sheamus took the beating to Rhodes and put him up for the Celtic Cross. however, Christian came out to distract Sheamus. Rhodes tried to attack from behind, but found little there. Christian stuck around at ringside, but Rhodes avoided the Brogue Kick. Sheamus tangled himself up in the ropes, but held on on the apron. Rhodes tried to use the mask, but Sheamus blocked it. Christian pulled on Sheamus’ foot so Sheamus kicked him, allowing Rhodes to successfully use the mask and eliminate Sheamus.

WINNER: Rhodes, at 4:31. Action was hard to follow. Just too many quick eliminations for the quality of superstars that was in that match.

Christian sent Sheamus shoulder-first into the ring post after the match.

-Punk, Del Rio, match, tonight.

[Commercial Break]

-The announcers were shown again, and Cole said Hunter is losing control based on what’s happened thus far. JR voiced-over video of Henry attacking him, then the King last week. Cole updated King’s condition, saying he has bruised ribs and anal bleeding (said with a straight face). “What” said Booker, as JR just shook his head at Cole’s nonsense.

-David Otunga, in a bow-tie, was complaining to John Laurinaitis about Triple H’s decisions. Otunga talked law with Laurinaitis and said many superstars have come up to him, asking him for advice. Laurinaitis reminded Otunga of his position and said he’d exert his influence. As Otunga left, Laurinaitis pulled out his cell and began to text.

-The Divas of Doom were shown walking backstage, presumably heading to the ring for a match.

-A video package on Kelly Kelly aired, including some of her mainstream press.

-Kelly Kelly and Eve Torres came out for a rematch with Divas of Doom. Eve has added bangs, making her look somewhat like Traci Brooks from a distance.

[Commercial Break]

(2) Kelly Kelly & Eve vs. The Divas of Doom
Booker sounds like he’s losing his voice. Beth and Eve began the match. Eve booted a charging Beth, but Nattie distracted Eve, allowing Phoenix to take over offense. Both women pressed Eve over their heads (Beth took the top, Nattie the legs) and just dropped her. Nice potential submission move by Natalya. Beth came in and choked Eve on the middle rope. She missed a feet-first dive though and Kelly tagged in. She took Beth down then spanked her, which Beth no-sold. Headscissors by Kelly, then a handspring splash. Nattie broke up a pin after a bulldog. Eve missed her aim on an interference attempt, and Kelly shoved Natalya out of the ring. Beth set Kelly up for the Glam Slam, and it connected.

Winners: Beth and Natalya, at 3:18. Oh how I’d like to see Beth vs. Kelly in HiaC.

They replayed parts of the match, then Mark Henry’s music played. They had a neat camera angle where Henry walked out and stepped right in front of the camera, his back taking up most of the screen. He’s got a match. Apparently, the replay was long enough for Kelly to flee the ring. Henry vs. Great Khali is the match.

[Commercial Break]

-Great Khali came to the ring for his match with Henry. Before it could start, Henry bopped Khali with the World Title. He did some yelling: “I ain’t gotta be scared,” then gave Khali a World’s Strongest Slam. “I ain’t scared…who’s on the ground?” and “If I gotta pay a fine, everybody gonna pay.” Khali sold the slam as Henry walked to the back with his title.

-John Cena was walking with the WWE Title. He looked like a robot. He’s out next.

[Commercial Break]

-Still to come, Ziggler vs. Ryder for the US Title. Hey, a secondary title match plug!

-JR plugged WWE.com for their take on the main event Sunday.

-The Cell was shown hanging above the ring.

-John Cena came out. During his entrance, JR said the Cell “is like church: many attend, few understand.” That was certainly interesting and I wanted to make sure I included it here. Cena talked up the Cell and put over the WWE Title. Cena called the Cell “a brutal problem solver.” as it hung lower, just above Cena. Cena called the Cell “the devil’s playground,” and instead of talking about what has happened there, he wanted to talk about what will happen there. He said he’ll challenge Satan on Sunday and laugh in his face. He said he’d go to hell on Sunday and said he’s been through hell. Then Alberto Del Rio’s music played. He came out and Cena pointed to his title. Del Rio was going to join commentary, as was CM Punk, who walked out. He wore a brown jacket, then flashed the crowd with his “best in the world” t-shirt. Cole said Punk was bringing back his announcer jacket. Cole pointed out how if Booker followed the product, he’d know about the jacket. Why would you point out that an announcer on your show didn’t follow the product?

(3) John Cena vs. Christian
Cena got off to a hot start, but Christian threw some cold water on it before long. Loud dueling chants from the fans. Suplex by Cena. “I’m going to kick your butt,” Del Rio told Punk. Dropkick off the top by Christian for two. Christian missed a dive off the top rope and Cena connected on shoulder tackles. JR was the only one interested in calling the match. Front suplex by Cena, then the five-knuckle shuffle. Christian rolled out of the way before Cena could hit the AA. Cena knocked Christian over the announce table. Cena and Punk argued, then Del Rio gave a cheap shot to Punk. Back in the ring, Cena tried the AA but Del Rio ran in and gave Cena an enziguiri to draw the DQ. Punk then ran Del Rio out of the ring.

Winner: Cena, by DQ, at 3:16. Really not much of a match.

Del Rio magically had a mic at the top of the ramp and said they’re going to hell Sunday, but he’s the only one coming back. He then told the fans they can go to hell.

-Punk vs. Del Rio is still to come.

[Commercial Break]

(4) Zack Ryder vs. Dolph Ziggler – United States Championship Match
During Ziggler’s entrance, they showed Hugh Jackman’s segments from last week, where he bested Ziggler. Ziggler took Ryder down early and landed a jumping elbowdrop. “Let’s go Ryder” chant by the fans. Dropkick by Ziggler. Ziggler pounded on Ryder in the corner, but Ryder moved out of the way of a splash. Ryder took Ziggler down with forearm thrusts. He white-washed Ziggler in the corner with a boot, and right in the jaw. He set up for the Rough-Ryder, but Vickie got on the apron. The ref was distracted and Jack Swagger came out of nowhere, choked Ryder on the top rope, and Ziggler hit the Zig Zag for the win.

Winner: Ziggler, at 2:00. Interesting development in the Vickie stable storyline, plus it gave Ryder something to do.

Swagger and Ziggler shook hands after the match, then they went to do some more damage. however, Air Bom ran out and fended off Ziggler and Swagger. Teddy Long walked out and said if Vickie’s clients want to get involved, they’re going to do it the right way. He told Vickie to find a partner in three minutes for her men, because after break, it’ll be a six-man tag match. He told Vickie if she can’t find anyone, it’ll be two-on-three.

[Commercial Break]

(5) Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger vs. Air Boom & Zack Ryder
Cole complained about everybody being on a power trip. Vickie hadn’t found a partner by the time the match began. Big dropkick by Kingston, then Bourne tagged in. He failed to snap-mare Swagger out of the corner, and Ziggler ended up tagging in. It’s quite clear Bourne’s role in this tag team. Bourne managed to kick out at two on a pin try by Swagger. Swgager chicken-winged the arms and stretched Bouren back while he laid on his stomach. Bourne took Swagger down with his double-knee move and Kofi flew onto Swagger as the new legal man. Kofi jumped up on Swagger’s shoulders and gave him the ten-punches in the corner. At 3:44, Vickie Guerrero walked out with Mason Ryan. Didn’t Ziggler make a crack about Ryan last week? He hopped up on the apron as the third man. Not as dramatic as Hulk Hogan, but oh well. Swagger was back on offense, but Ryder did make the tag at 5:08. He landed a few punches, but Swagger clotheslined him hard. Swagger backed into the ropes and tagged in Ryan. But Ryan turned around and clotheslined Swagger. Then he bealed Ziggler intot he ring. He pressed Ziggler over his head, then turned it into a uranage. Big pop for him. He left the ring as Ryder picked up the scraps, giving Ziggler the Rough-Ryder leg-drop for the win.

Winners: Ryder, Kingston, and Bourne, at 6:30. Interesting twist with Mason Ryan turning on the heels. Even-steven tonight with Ryder getting the pin there.

Vickie did some yelling at her boys after the match.

-Still to come: Punk vs. Del Rio.

[Commercial Break]

-They showed the exterior of the arena in Kansas City.

-A video package aired on Hell in a Cell.

-The announcers previewed the PPV card. Kelly Kelly vs. Beth Phoenix has just been added….but not in a Cell.

-Otunga was backstage holding court with Christian, Rhodes, Ziggler and Guerrero. He cited some past cases to show that Hunter has them in unsafe working conditions. He suggested they protect themselves and said a lawsuit might not be the way to go, but they do need to stick together. Christian and Ziggler were in, as was Cody. Otunga continued speaking as they went back to the ring.

-Justin Roberts introduced Ricardo Rodriguez, who in turn, introduced Alberto Del Rio. Del Rio entered the ring, just as they went to break.

[Commercial Break]

-John Cena was out as guest commentator.

(6) Alberto Del Rio vs. CM Punk
Punk went after Del Rio’s arm and then tossed him through the ropes and to ringside. They went to the announce table and Punk threw Del Rio at Cena. Punk then mocked Cena by giving him a salute. As they went back into the ring, Del Rio got the better of the exchange. Punk gave Del Rio the knees to the face, but Del Rio enziguri’d Punk off the apron and he tumbled to ringside. They went to break at 3:04.

[Commercial Break]

Back at 5:57 of the match. Neither man had really gained full advantage, as they were still going back-and-forth. Del Rio DDT’d Punk to counter the Go To Sleep. Del Rio locked in an arm-bar as the crowd chanted for Punk. Punk fought out but ended up going shoulder-first into the ring post. Corner dropkick for a near fall. Del Rio had his longest spurt of offense for the match, but it came to an end with he dove through the ropes feet-first. That move = Ric Flair going to the top rope. Punk missed a kick to the head and Del Rio brought Punk’s arm across his shoulder for a two-count. Swinging neck-breaker by Punk for two. Punk blocked Del Rio’s punches and kicked Del Rio in the gut. Heel kick at 11:00 and both men were down. Running knee in the corner, but bulldog was avoided and Del Rio brought Punk’s arm across his knees for yet another near-fall. Punk kicked Del Rio in the back of the head after one to the chest, and he got the win.

Winner: Punk, at 12:00.

As soon as the match ended, the Cell began to lower. Ricardo wanted to go after Punk, but left the ring. Cena stopped him and faced him up, not letting him escape. It ended up with Ricardo, Cena, and Punk inside the Cell. GTS for Ricky rod, then the AA. Then Punk tried to hit Cena with the GTS. Cena countered with the AA, but Punk got out. Del Rio came out of nowhere with a chair and nailed Cena and Punk with it several times. The chair was placed in the corner and Punk was thrown into it. The ref was inside the Cell too and Del Rio continued with chair shots to the back. They began to play Del Rio’s music as he stood tall. The show went off with a graphic plugging HIAC.

Driving home from work today I was thinking about how WWE was going to kill all the joy out of Twitter trending topics with their new self-awareness, and really wish I'd put a post like this together three hours ago. As if it weren't already obvious that more and more strained attempts to integrate "tweetable" catchy phrases into the show, tonight's "anal bleeding" was not only the latest, but most blantant example - and of course it worked. In typical WWE fashion, expect further attempts to escalate the rhetoric until Twitter suddenly realises it isn't "cool" to tweet this crap any more and turns on them. (I hope.)

I have never and didn't think I would ever give a fuck about Twitter, but hearing Michael Cole say anal bleeding was now trending on Twitter made me lose my shit all over the place. Hell, just typing that just now is making me laugh. I just hope Lawler was sitting at home and did a facepalm. The power of Michael Cole and Twitter compels you! Awesome!

Six posts? Jeez. I wonder if that's a good gauge for how well HITC will do this Sunday. Um, this show was pretty bad. Quick thoughts.

Does Triple H need to be on every week? They didn't advance the Truthsome firing angle, so unless they were gonna storm in and lay Hunter out after he buried the midcard, I'm not sure how his presence even remotely enhanced tonight's show. All those matches could have been booked normally, not a one of them was so blockbuster it needed to be "made" at the top of the show.

Will Eve turn on KK soon? That'd be too many heels (which spoils the broth), but she's been doing the supportive best friend of the Champ deal for longer than Ed Leslie. Or maybe it just feels as long.

Mason Ryan uses performance enhancing drugs.

Punk was severely reined in. That's no fun. But I guess it's overkill if he shworks every night.

Cena's promo about how the title scene needs HITC was probably as insincere as he's come across in a long time, and that's saying something. Since when does the second meeting of ADR with either Punk or Cena, neither of whom he has any real issue with, require a violent match. And why even show all those classic Cell clips when nothing even close to any of those scenes will be duplicated.

Also, they should have shown Cody's messed up face from SD with a giant CENSORED graphic over it. That used to make me so mad when I was a kid. It made me hate Outlaw Ron Bass somethin' fierce!

I kept thinking that Mason Ryan joining the Vickie Family would be the absolute best use of him and was fully ready to pat the E on the back for it. I take it all back, because they'd much rather use him as a babyface that'll get lost in the shuffle in about a month, instead.

Six weeks after first winning they title and FINALLY they made Del Rio look like something more than a joke for John Cena to poke fun at.

I eagerly await Awesome Truth making their "shocking" return this Sunday. They're already better at selling the "firing" angle than John Cena ever was.

Christian, Ziggler, and Cody forming the Legion of Doom (the Superfriends nemeses, not the Road Warriors) could have legs. I fully admit this is a faulty analogy, because Lex Luthor doesn't wear a bow tie...and isn't black, so feel free to insert a more appropriate analogy here.

Ziggler has become the master of the snarky, just-off-mic comment...a craft he's been working at since NXT.

I believe Mason Ryan had been working as a face on house shows and Superstars but he hadn't been on RAW in months so maybe a simple "That's former New Nexus member Mason Ryan!" from Michael "Anal Bleeding" Cole might've helped the viewers at home to realize Batista isn't Bigger Than Ever.

Seriously?? It only led to a recurring plotline throughout the show where the aggrieved parties banded together -- with the help of Bowtunga (great name!) -- in protest of how HHH is running things and in particular at how he treated them in that segment. So yeah, HHH being out there at the top of the show and interacting with each of those people was kinda sorta necessary and important to things.

HHH has to be on every week due to their illogical idea that he somehow equals ratings and buys. The answer is he doesn't. At this point, he should be on TV due to the conspiracy storyline that Punk started and is now nowhere near. If the show wants the mid-card to bury HHH, I will find the justice in that, but it won't. HHH will enlist Cena or some other face to help him and then bury the roster.

I thought for sure, in the early going, that the show was going to belong to Ziggler, who dropped the "An ACTOR - uh, no offense - AN ACTOR!" line on HHH at the top of things. Or maybe the segment where Cole had to do verbal acrobatics to avoid mentioning NXT when revealing the Secret Origin Of CM Punk's Blazer. Or perhaps the discussion of Booker T's experience as one of the world's greatest tag team workers, and Cole's accusation that Booker probably cheated for several of his tag title reigns, which Booker did not deny before putting on his journalism hat...but as it turned out, the night belonged to but one man:

YES. David Otunga: Attorney-At-Law was amazing. It's absurd that anyone is going to say this, but I'm going to say this: MORE BOWTUNGA. Are we going to get The Trial Of Miz & The Truth with David Otunga representing them? Or, dare I hope, are we seriously going to get an angle where WWE Superstars try to form a union? And the man who leads the on-camera charge for a Sports Entertainers Union (the Steel Cage Workers union?) to finally give the independent contractors the fair, non-arbitrary and non-capricious working conditions they deserve will be David Otunga, Esq.? Would this kill Roddy Piper, or would he believe it was really happening and show up to tearfully offer his support to David Otunga? Will Vince script Cena to give an anti-union speech that will turn hundreds of thousands members of the Cenation violently on the concept unionizing at an early age? I am incredibly excited about the possibilities.

David Otunga > Clarance Mason

Is it just me or is Swagger a big dude? For some reason he looked like a giant last night next to Ziggler & in the 6-man match ...

I really liked the show. It was a great showcase of the mid-card talent & the potential some of them hold.

What exactly is going on with CM Punk's hair? Is he using too much gel, or not enough? His hair slicked back looks pretty good on him, but halfway through a match it gets all messed up and last night he ended up looking like the dude from A Flock of Seagulls out there. It totally weirded me out and distracted me from following along with the rest of the match. I kept talking to the TV: "Brush your hair back, dude! Pat it down! Get some Brylcreem!"

I'm glad the guy I unreasonably mark out for, David Otunga, is finally getting a hint of respect from this board. All it took was wearing a bow tie. Bow ties are cool.

He is huge. He is also f'ing deadweight outside the ring. His backstage chat with Vickie last week was necromancy.

Way to go WWE, you've gone from blowing this place up with 6 page RAW discussions, to one page about Otunga's bowtie and Punk's hair.

At this point, he should be on TV due to the conspiracy storyline that Punk started and is now nowhere near. If the show wants the mid-card to bury HHH, I will find the justice in that, but it won't. HHH will enlist Cena or some other face to help him and then bury the roster.


I think Punk was just taking a one week detour because he's in the Cell match. It's going to be HHH and Punk together against the conspiracy as a way less cool version of Logan and Weevil from Veronica Mars season 2. I'm not sure which one's which. So many people have joined the Unified Organization of Rulebreaking that they're going to have to have qualifying matches for the Survivor Series team that goes against Rock and Cena. Del Rio, Nash, Miz, Truth, Christian, Cody, Ziggler, Swagger, and Otunga is enough for two teams. Maybe there will be a Cena/Rock/pals team match and a Punk/HHH/pals team match.

There's also Mark Henry vs. Team Hall of Pain, Orton/Big Show/Kane/Kozlov/Johnny Curtis/tech guy.

And I don't think anyone can blame MNF for that, either, because that Cowboys/Redskins game was ten different kinds of terrible.

Hot shot booking is killing the shows. I agree with Wylde and my good friend, RawLo. They need some depth to their characters and give us reasons to love/hate these guys.
