WWE has its last Monday Night Raw before the Wlimination Chamber PPV and it should be newsworthy. Join us at 9pm EST for full live coverage and in the meantime check out The Martyrshow: On John Cena’s Title Reigns, Cody Rhodes’ IC Title Run and WWE Smackdown !
Kane video package.
Kane is shown and everyone boos. He LOVES to hate.
All six Raw Elimination Chamber wrestlers are in the ring at podiums. Jerry Lawler introduces a DEBATE! He is quickly interrupted by John Laurinaitis, flanked by David Otunga. He and Punk cut promos. Then Vickie Guerrero comes out. It’s a promo clustermess! R Truth cuts a long promo encouraging WHATs. Spider Stew? This is crazy. Miz gets on the mic and talks about main eventing Wrestlemania last year, then a debate buzzer sounds several times to cut him off. Jericho cuts a long promo, and CM Punk no sells, claiming he wasn’t paying attention. Tonight we’ll have singles preview matches of Miz/Punk, Kofi/Jericho and Truth/Dolph. Jericho pushes the podiums aside and goes for Punk slowly, who raises the title to taunt Jericho. Kofi approaches from behind and kicks Jericho and that match… is…. NEXT
Chris Jericho vs. Kofi Kingston
We are in progress with Jericho back in control after the kick. Nice match with both men getting some offense in. Kofi in control towards then end, but Jericho hits a thumb to the eye and then the Code Breaker for the pin.
Video of Kane beating up folks at the Royal Rumble
Backstage, John Cena talks to Zack Ryder, sporting a neckbrace. Cena warns Ryder that Kane is on the loose! He wants Zack to stay safe and sound in the Cena dressing room.
The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels is here! He has a cowboy hat. He spots someone – oh it’s HHH! They hug manly style.
Also backstage, David Otunga and John Laurinaitis are chatting. Apparently Laurinaitis was not yet the permanent GM of Raw, but Otunga had a plan for that, and it would also include being GM of Smackdown. Seems silly to talk about that plan on camera.
Daniel Bryan comes out to his music.
The Big Show vs. Randy Orton
Daniel Bryan is lurking around the ring, not announcing. Match goes a couple minutes then we head to a
Back from the break with Big Show largely in control. He goes to the floor and chats with Daniel Bryan, then goes back to the ring where Randy catches him with the draping DDT, then later the RKO. When he went for a pin, Daniel Bryan ran in and hit Randy with the title belt for the DQ.
Winner by DQ: Randy Orton
Bryan takes out Show too and stands over them both as his music plays.
Shawn Michaels is HERE!
It’s the 10PM hour and Sexy Boy plays and out comes Shawn Michaels to a huge reaction. He cuts a promo about Wrestlemania season and plugs his Twitter. Shawn doesn’t think it’s Wrestlemania without MR WRESTLEMANIA. Then HHH’s music plays and he comes out. They are DX!!!! They are buddy buddy for a few minutes but then Shawn brings up the Undertaker and things don’t go as well. Shawn thinks Hunter is being a coward. Hunter believes it’s bad for business to end the streak. Weird. He buries the roster and says that he and Shawn and Taker are the end of an era – smash mouth wrestlers – and he won’t ruin the legacy. Shawn says look me in the eyes and say no. Hunter takes off his jacket and tells Shawn “no” and walks out to boos. But wait – BONG – and the lights go out. A video plays of the Undertaker furiously cutting his own hair!@
Dolph Ziggler w/Vickie Guerrero vs. R Truth
No entrace for Dolph. He takes over early after a flurry by Truth. Ziggler with a long heat sequence, but Truth rolls him up randomly for a clean pin.
Backstage Santino visits Zack Ryder in John Cena’s dressing room. They do some Valentine’s comedy.
Tamina Snuka vs. Bella Twin
Yes they have added a last name. Beth Phoenix is doing commentary and came out to her music. Tamina getting most of the offense. Goes up top and hits the Superfly Splash for the clean pin.
John Cena and Josh Matthews chat off-mic backstage.
Long Rock vignette – he was all OVER the media!
Backstage Kane stalked and then grabbed Eve and tossed her in an ambulance backstage. She slipped out and John Cena was there, and they kissed!! But Zack Ryder was looking on as well and was crushed.
The Miz vs. CM Punk
Match start out slow. Miz goes for the Reality Check, but Punk slides out and hits a kick to the head. Punk is favoring his left arm, but still hits a swinging neckbreaker. Punk hits a running clothesline, follows it with a bulldog. Punk calls for the GTS, but Miz slides out on top, kick to the knee, and hits the DDT for 2. Miz charges, Punk hits a power slam for 2. Punk goes to the top rope, but Miz stops him. Miz goes for the Skull Crushing Finale, but Punk gets out and locks in the Anaconda Vice for the win.
The ambulance backs back into the arena.
Cena comes out and says that he had an awkward moment by the ambulance. He said he apologized to Ryder. He says that this was Kane’s plan all along. Crowd starts into a “We All Hate You” chant. He says that people mistake his kindness for weakness, and that he will be sending Kane out of the arena in a Ambulance. Cena says that he has a message for Dwayne for WrestleMania. Zack Ryder then comes out, and crutches his way to the ring. Cena tries to talk to him, but Ryder slaps Cena. Cena then takes off his shirt & dog tags. Ryder goes to slap him again, but Cena blocks it, loads up to punch, but holds himself back. Ryder falls to mat, and wants Cena to stay away, then leaves the ring. Kane appears on the Tron. He says that Cena is in denial, and says that he will beat Cena at the PPV. Kane then asks for a round of applause for Cena, and while the crowd booed, Kane ran out to the ramp, and rolled Ryder off the side of the stage. Cena ran over, and Eve came out…and got some major whore heat. Ryder does another stretcher job that brings up the end credits
