WWE RAW Results (6/20) - New Champ, Punk Leaving... Sound Off With Your Thoughts
Shawn Michaels will be on hand for RAW next week, presumably to plug his new show.
Alberto Del Rio is introduced, and he enters the ring in a white Bentley. The stips are no DQ, falls count anywhere or a submission match and that match will take place after the break.
Back from break, and Punk is next in the ring followed by Mysterio. Falls count anywhere wins with 66%.
As expected, these three had a great match. Mysterio hit a 619 and followed up with a splash. CM Punk threw Mysterio off and stole the pin to become the new #1 contender.
CM Punk defeated Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio to become the new #1 contender.
After the win, Punk gets the mic and says that not only is July 17th the Money in the Bank PPV, it's also the night that he defeats John Cena. He says that the brutal honesty is that July 17th is the day his contract with WWE comes to an end. Punk then says that he's leaving once his contract is up, and he's leaving with the WWE Championship. Interesting way to work his contract issues into this storyline.
Cody Rhodes vs. Daniel Bryan is coming up, and the choices for the stip are a Paper bag match, a no count out match or a collegiate rules match.
Back from break and Daniel Bryan is in the ring. Cody Rhodes makes his entrance. The fans voted on a "No Count Out" match with 51%
No Count Out Match
Daniel Bryan vs. Cody Rhodes
Short match with Bryan pinning Rhodes with a roll up.
Daniel Bryan defeated Cody Rhodes.
After the match, Bryan locked the LeBell lock on Rhodes, but Ted Dibiase hit the ring and the former Legacy members beat Bryan down. Rhodes hit Bryan with the Cross-Rhodes, and then they proceeded to put a bag on Bryan's head.
Back from break, and Vickie is in the ring and says that she will win this dance off, and she's had 15 years of dance training in ballet and erotic dance. She does Sable's old catchphrase, but it's a little backwards, as she says "this is for all the men who came to see me and all the women who want to be me." She dances for a second, and then gets Matt Striker in the ring and starts making out with him. The fans vote for Michael Cole with 47%. No doubt about it now, this thing is rigged.
Cole gets in the ring, and you guessed it, danced like an a--. He attempts a worm and a spinarronie, and then asks Booker T if he "can dig that, SUCKA!" When it came time for the fans to vote, both Vickie and Cole were booed. Striker said we'll go by who got the loudest boos, which was Cole. As Cole celebrated on the second rope, Vickie threw him to the mat and then proclaimed herself the winner.
The six man tag is up next. The stips you can vote on are a one fall to a finish match, a 20 minute time limit match or an elimination match.
Wow guys, over 600+ comments and counting. I said it before, you guys are awesome!
RAW Roulette returns next week. They plug HBK being there next week as well.
Main event time. After the entrances, it's announced that the fans chose an elimination match for 79%. That match is up next.
Christian got the first elimination after pinning Alex Riley following the killswitch with an assist from the Miz, who nailed Riley first with the SCF. Miz is out next, after being pinned by Cena after the champ nailed him with an AA. Orton eliminates Truth with an RKO, and Christian follows up by nailing Orton with a spear and pinning him.
It's down to Cena and Christian. Christian was celebrating, and ended up getting nailed with an RKO. Cena then put Christian in the STF, forcing "Captain Charisma" to tap.
John Cena won a six-man elimination tag team match.
After the match, Cena and Orton celebrated.
