WWE RAW (10/18) – Smackdown Invades, Cena & Orton Team Up & More
Barrett told Cena he wants him to give Husky Harris and Mike McGillicutty everything he has as he wants to see if they are good enough for the Nexus. Cena asked what's the catch that he's allowed to give them everything he wants. Barrett told Cena there was no catch and he had to go get him a glass of water. When Cena gave him the water, Barrett threw it in his face as the rest of Nexus laughed. I think they are taking the whole Cena has to do what he says thing a bit too far but it's just going to be a sweeter reward whenever Cena manages to get his hands on Wade.
Guest Host Bobb'e J. Thompson backstage with The Miz & Big Show
Big Show's co-star in Knucklehead Bobb'e was backstage beating up The Miz in the new Smackdown vs. RAW video game using the Big Show. Miz came in and told him that's not what is going to happen. Big Show entered and told Miz get out and promised to knock him out tonight. Simple segment that did what it needed but nothing special.
John Cena & Randy Orton vs. Husky Harris & Mike McGillicutty
I thought this was main event but either way, Cena & Orton made their respective entrances first before Harris & McGillicutty, the rest of Nexus came out and watched from the top of the stage. The bell rang and Cena unloaded, obviously being given permission to give everything he has, has given him that extra bit of momentum.
On return from commercial Orton was in the ring with McGillicutty and he tagged in Cena as the announces referenced the teamwork between Cena & The Viper. Cole told the WWE Universe of Harris' and McGillicutty's fathers and grandfathers in the industry yet still felt they had to change their names? I don't understand. Frequent tags between Harris & McGillicutty got the best of Cena as they worked on the Chain Gang Soldier. When Cena finally tagged in Orton, The Viper hit the rope DDT on Harris and then after an Attitude Adjustment and RKO, Orton got the pinfall.
Post match Cena was about to shake Orton's hand before Barrett ordered Cena to leave the ring. Nexus surrounded the ring and attacked Orton as Cena looked on. The crowd had huge Cena chants but Cena just had to watch as Nexus destroyed Orton and hit their finishers. Barrett then ordered Cena to get into the ring and told him to deliver an Attitude Adjustment to Orton. Once Cena had him on his shoulders, Barrett took Orton and gave him The Wasteland as he didn't want Cena stealing his spotlight. Cena left and the rest of Nexus looked on at the fallen WWE Champion.
Dolph Ziggler / Vickie Guerrero / Daniel Bryan Promo
Vickie & Dolph big each up as they head to the ring. Why is Michael Cole saying Vickie is beautiful like Matt Striker always does? Daniel Bryan's music hit and he came out. He said he's not a ladies man but even he could do better than Vickie. He asked could he be serious for a minute, a few crowd members thinking of Lance Storm popped. He claimed he had the ability to make Dolph Ziggler tap out and challenged him to a champion vs. champion match at Bragging Rights.
Ziggler accepted and asked why wait until Sunday before slapping Bryan. Bryan tackled Dolph to the outside and got the LeBell Lock on Ziggler on the outisde. Eve Torres' music hit and she along with the other RAW Diva's hi the ring and surrounded Vickie. They threw a bucket of confetti over her and she ran to the back ashamed. I'm serious. Daniel Bryan got in the ring and danced with the Diva's, his burial on Monday Night's continues!
