Rating: C. Not bad here but the best part of it was the beating by Morrison. Having Morrison get all pissed off and wanting to hurt Punk is something very good to see. He needs some emotion in his character and this is a good place to start. He could be a star with a few minor tweaks and this would work fine. Fun match.
Truth and Morrison chase off Ryan when he tries to attack them.
There's a plug for Jericho's new book.
The chick from Chaperone and Modern Family is here as the guest star. She introduces the Khali Kiss Cam. She's a kid mind you and dances to Khali's music. Khali's belly button is above her shoulders. The Kiss Cam tonight is of people in the audience. Santino kisses Tamina and Vickie kisses Dolph. Apparently they're in the audience? Maryse won't kiss Ted so she kisses Yoshi Tatsu. Ryder gets kissed on the cheek by Regal in the moment of the night. Horny pops up with a box of candy for her and gets a kiss on the cheek. To all the people that says this is stupid, lighten up. This was like 2 minutes long and harmless.
Orton is introduced as the Viper now. Randy takes him down into the corner and gets a Thesz Press with punches. Here's the stomp and knee drop which misses. Naturally we spend the whole match talking about the Chamber. Sheamus takes over with his power stuff and gets the slingshot shoulder block for two. Orton tries to fight back but runs into a boot in the corner.
Apparently that doesn't hurt as he hits some of his basic stuff. Orton charges ahead but gets caught in the Irish Curse backbreaker for two. Middle rope suplex puts Orton down but Sheamus can't capitalize. Sheamus comes at him but walks into the RKO for the finish at 5:07. Punk and Nexus comes out for a beatdown but the other Chamber guys make the save and beat up Nexus.
Randy Orton b. Sheamus @ 5:07 - RKO
Rating: C-. Just a match here as the big ending is clearly the guest host. These two are more or less incapable of having a good match so keeping it short is probably the best possible thing they can do. Not bad and the ending works with the RKO, but not enough time and nothing entertaining at all really.
A long limo pulls up and we see a woman's feet. Naturally the camera stays on the feet as we take a break.
Back and the host is……causing electrical noises in the arena. There go the lights. They're going out all over the arena. There goes the Tron and the Elimination Chamber sign. Vince isn't advertising a PPV? This MUST be huge. A light comes on the screen and it's…….THE ROCK!!!!!!!!! I'm stunned at this. He looks like he's in great shape. To put it mildly, the place erupted.
After seven long years……FINALLY, The Rock has come back to Anaheim, to Raw, and Home. When he had the mic up you could see his hand shaking. He has many nicknames, but tonight he's Dwayne. It's been a long time since he's been here and it's not because of money or to promote a movie but because of the fans. The fans helped him accomplish his goals and dreams. He wants to thank the fans and tell them he loves them and because of them he's back in the ring and he's never ever going away.
