Location: The Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.
"Yes, sir, we promised you a great main eventů"
The Nexus is in the middle of the ring to start us off and Wade Barrett is ready to talk. He says tonight comes from the Nation's Capital, site of many rallies and memorable speeches. They talk about taking out The Undertaker and then they replay it. You know, not even slow motion can make Wade Barrett's finisher look impressive. Justin Gabriel's 450 looks great though. David Otunga says they are the new phenom and it was greatest night of their lives. Michael Tarver says that most would have been content to do what they did to Taker, but not them. Heath Slater lisps that he pinned the WWE Champion Sheamus. Jeez he sounds retarded. Justin Gabriel puts over how he took out Undertaker and John Cena in the same night with the 450. He's much more comfortable as a heel; a definite AJ Styles vibe. Every time he hits it on John, it just gets more satisfying. Cena CAN see him, crashing down on his lifeless body over and over again. Barrett says he devenomized the Viper Randy Orton. In two weeks time, he will beat Orton, Cena, Sheamus, Edge, and Chris Jericho at Night of Champions and win the championship.
I HEAR VOICES!
Orton is out, but the pop is only moderate. Sick smile on his face. Orton says that the only thing he took from last week was taking out Barrett's men in thirty seconds. Wade won't replay that, but Orton will just do it again. He doesn't care who he has to go through to win the title, but he will make it his business to give Barrett an RKO. Barrett dares him to come down to the ring like a man and do it now.
The General Manager comes in and says that last week was a historic night for Nexus as a unit, but we'll see how they do individually. He announces Justin Gabriel vs. John Cena and Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett, and that makes Orton VERY happy. Nexus is also banned from ringside tonight. Orton's smile is great.
An Irish Guy talks about Sheamus putting his title on the line at Night of Champions in a Six-Pack Challenge. Nice touch.
Well, so far no Nickelback video package. That's one good thing!
We see Edge leaving his match last week. BREAK THE WALLS DOWN! The General Manager is ready to talk again. Jericho's reaction is great. The GM says that Jericho and Edge leaving was a slap in the face of the universe and the General Manager. As punishment, their title shots are on the line tonight. Jericho demands to know who the GM is.
THIS AIN'T NO MAKE BELIEVE! YES!
Chris Jericho vs. John Morrison
Jericho jumps Morrison and slams him into the the buckle, but Morrison gets a pair of schoolboys for nearfalls. A running forearm gets two for Jericho, and he throws JoMo outside and demands to know who the GM is again, and we go to a commercial break. Already? Lame.
Chinlock by Jericho as we show him walking out last week. A replay shows Jericho blocking the Chuck Kick. Back suplex gets two for Jericho. Knee to the chest by Jericho, Morrison flips out of a second back suplex. Clotheslines, leaping heel kick and the STO backbreaker! Only 2 for Morrison and he goes for kicks, Walls of Jericho, countered, STIFF elbow by Jericho. Lionsault misses. Jericho on his feet, CHUCK KICK for 2! Jericho hits a press flapjack and sets for the Codebreaker but Morrison holds the ropes. Jericho ducks the knee to the face and gets a schoolboy for 2. Enzugiri gets 2 more for Jericho. He slams Morrison's face into the mat and tells him to stay down. Morrison avoids a corner charge and sets for Starship Pain, Jericho moves, Morrison lands and tweaks his ankle, Walls of Jericho! Morrison fights....and gets the bottom rope! There is an "Over 9,000!" sign in the crowd. Jericho sets for a superplex, but Morrison fights him off. Morrison flies in, STARSHIP PAIN! 1...2..3!
Winner: John Morrison
Rating: **3/4 (Good moves but a little slow for these guys. Great finish though, and a great win for John Morrison.)
