WWE RAW Results (4/5) - Otunga-Cena, Swagger-Orton!
By Ryan Clark | April 05, 2010 |
-We get the NXT video package on David Otunga to let the audience know who the hell this random guy is hosting the show.
-Otunga hangs out with his posse in the office bragging about how awesome he is, and we see that they did in fact give him 427 green M&M's. Santino drops by and he wants to know where the A-Team is. Otunga corrects him and says it's the A-List, but Santino is disappointed that Mr. T isn't going to be here as he is the Vice President of the Mr. T fan club. He says he pitys the fool who tells him Mr. T isn't going to be here tonight, and says if the real Mr. T was here he wouldn't let anyone do that to his 427 green M&M's. We see Hornswoggle (who apparently didn't get the memo that Shawn retired and DX is no more) munching on the M&M's. Otunga's posse chases him off, and Santino says he is so happy when a plan comes together.
Unified Tag Team Championship: The Big Show & The Miz vs. John Cena & Batista
Still no mention of the fact that the challengers are former Champions. Also funny note…Batista still has a Smackdown graphic meaning he is still a Smackdown superstar despite not being on that show in nearly two months. Especially funny when they mentioned earlier that Swagger is going to Smackdown because the belt is exclusive to that show. Wouldn't that mean Batista had to go to Raw when he won the WWE Title? Cena starts the match with Miz and takes him over with a snap mare before locking in a chinlock. Miz elbows free, but Cena takes him down with a drop toehold. Miz goes for the Attitude Adjustment, but Miz is able to tag Show who is in with a headbutt. Show delivers a right hand to the mid section of Cena, and whips him into the corner. Show delivers a big open hand chop, and tags in Miz who delivers a big right hand in the corner. Miz whips Cena to the corner, and goes for a running clothesline which misses. Cena goes for a tag, but Batista drops down and walks out. Cena nails Miz, and goes after his partner Batista. They end up fighting on the stage, and that gets them counted out at 2:36. Cena seems upset that he was dumb enough to chase after Cena, and that brings out Otunga again. He says ShowMiz isn't getting off that easy. Later tonight they have to defend the titles again, and since Cena and Batista can't get along Cena's new tag team partner is him. Cena looks skeptical, but seems to be okay with it.
Winners: STILL Unified Tag Team Champions-The Big Show & The Miz (Count Out ½*)
Ted Dibiase vs. Christian
Dibiase comes out carrying the Million Dollar Belt, and he says last week at Wrestlemania his dad was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. He says that prestigious honor had some profound effect on his dad, because last week on Raw he did something he had never done before. Act like a father. He says one random act of kindness doesn't make up for all those lost years. All those missed baseball games, football games, and his graduation. But he knows better than anyone how to win him over, and that's through his bank account. He thanks him for the trust fund, and for the Million Dollar Title. He says it truly is fun being the fortunate son. Christian attacks early with a series of right hands, and whips Dibise to the corner delivering a backdrop. Christian chokes out Dibiase on the second rope and fires him over the top to the floor. Christian delivers a baseball slide, and delivers a crossbody from the top rope all the way to the floor. Christian fires Dibiase back inside but gets caught with a neckbreaker from Dibiase on the way back inside. Dibiase fires Christian to the ropes and hits a back elbow picking up a two count before grabbing a rear chinlock. Christian elbows free, but Dibiase connects with a rebound clothesline for two. Dibiase fires Christian to the corner, but misses a charge and gets hit with a bicycle kick. Christian sets up Dibiase on the second rope, and jumps to the floor to deliver and open hand right. Christian hits a crossbody off the top rope for two, and sets up for the killswitch but Dibiase stops it with a right hand. They trade counters on their finishers with neither being successful and Dibiase connecting with a snap mare. Christian comes back with a tornado DDT attempt that is blocked, and Dibiase sends Christian crashing into the ringpost and finishes things with Dream Street at 4:18. Christian again delivers a stellar match even with short time, and Dibiase even held his own as well.
Winner: Ted Dibiase (Pinfall-Dream Street **1/2)
