"Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…"
Live from the Bradley Center in MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (Go Brewers!)
Mr. McMahon opens the show, wow haven't seen him in a while; he's looking good considering he was in a coma recently. He congratulates the Packer Fans on the SuperBowl and discusses WrestleMania and WrestleMania moments. He says the guest host of WrestleMania will be there? Hmmmm. Randy Orton follows and says that he and CM Punk are not even close to being even, he's just begun; speak of the Devil here is Punk. Ha, Michael Cole agreed with me. Punk sits down because he agrees with "Randall". Punk explains that he cost him the title at the Royal Rumble because Orton (with Legacy) took Punk out prior to his title match Unforgiven '08 with a punt kick, causing him to forfeit the World title; eye for an eye. Punk says his actions are honorable and promises Orton will never be WWE champion again. Punk says he is going to eliminate Randall right now; New Nexus heads to the ring. Orton attacks them until Mason Ryan nails him and the Horseman stomp him down. Punk begins to talk but Orton tackles him so more beat down is required. They tie him in the ropes like André the Giant and Orton still manages a kick so more beating ensues. Punk looks to have a broken nose. Nexus props Orton on Punk's shoulders and he nails the Go2Sleep. Nexus celebrates post-beat down.
4.5/10 Good opening segment as Mr. McMahon returns and we get Punk's explanation, it remains constant with his legitimate reasons he usually comes up with.
Scenes from the Chaperone are shown.
R-Truth vs. Mason Ryan: Raw GM books all of New Nexus in matches against Elimination Chamber opponents and bans the rest from ringside; I think this is Ryan's Raw in-ring debut. Truth asks Green Bay what's up; I agree with Michael Cole here, they are in Milwaukee. Ryan clobbers Truth as the fans chant "Milwaukee" well it is Algonquin for The Good Land and… oh, the match, sorry. Truth hits the Lie Detector but appears to have injured his leg on the landing; Ryan takes advantage slamming the leg on the ring ropes. Unique. Mason Ryan continues to work over Truth's leg; Ryan applies a Brock Lock for the immediate tap out. Post-match Ryan refuses to relinquish the hold. Ryan grabs a chair and the referee keeps taking it so Ryan just goes into the ring and reapplies the Brock Lock causing the referee to reverse his decision. 3.5/10 Whatever, I don't care about the decision reversal, the ACTUAL match made Mason Ryan look like a killer.
In the back CM Punk berates Mason Ryan and then congratulates and wants New Nexus to hurt people not too much so they get replaced. Smart. David Otunga is concerned about facing Sheamus, Punk says to have faith.
WWE Diva's Champion Eve Torres, Gail Kim & Tamina vs. Melina & Bella Twins: Natalya is at ringside commentating, this has clusterf--k written all over it. Gail Kim works over both Bellas until they overwhelm her and work her over in the corner and double clothesline her. Brie Bella works Gail on the ropes and tags in Melina and she applies a bow-and-arrow hold. Gail props her on the top and Gail counters and tags in Eve Torres as Michael Cole and Natalya get chippy on commentary. Eve floor Melina with a clothesline and a standing moonsault and all hell breaks loose and Eve clocks Melina with a neckbreaker for three. 2.5/10 Yup, clusterf--k in the ring and on commentary.
