RAW Results – 1/9/12 – Ryder’s Tire

RAW this week starts with video recap of last week’s main event, then Kane’s attack on Cena and Ryder.

Kane’s fire erupts, then lights out. Red lights come up on stage and Kane is standing there surrounded in smoke. He comes to the ring wearing his over mask. Into the ring he raises fire from the four corners, then removes the over mask. He says he sees the disapproving looks. He hears the weak little whispers, wondering why he embraces hate. Not only and we deplorably predictable, we’re in denial. Kane says we all get up next to a spouse we can’t stand, to a job we despise, then home to kids we say we love, but deep down we think to ourselves that they’re nothing but soft, spoiled disappointments. He says we all live lives filled with pure hate! But we don’t embrace it. Either we’re too cowardly or because we fill our lives with delusions of hope like Cena! Cena represents hope. He represents success. Everything we aspire to achieve, but cannot. When we see Cena we should see our failures, our shortcomings, our unfulfilled dreams!

It should anger us and it does. When we say ‘Cena sucks!’ what we’re really saying is that we suck. And we do because we refuse to embrace the hate that’s bubbling up like a festering cauldron. Kane says we like to think of ourselves as decent human beings, but we’re liars. We think cheering for an underdog makes us good and decent. Look at Ryder! Kane says we made him a star. That proves nothing! Last week he was seconds away from carrying that vessel of our vicarious elation down to the depths of hell. But Cena stopped that. All Cena did was delay the inevitable. Unlike us fans, Kane always gets what he wants! What he wants are consequences. Consequences for refusing to embrace hate!

Cena’s music. Out to the stage, off comes his shirt and he runs to the ring. Cena on Kane with blows. Cena clotheslines Kane from the ring, then out after him. They exchange blows. Down by the side of the ramp, then through uprights and into the back area. Cena thrown into men wearing suits. Kane attacks one man, then back after Cena. Cena slammed into a door, then takes more blows form Kane. Cena thrown into another door,t hen they’re outside. On the loading dock and Cena gains control almost sending Kane off the side backward. Cena sent to knock over poles, then comes back at Kane with a crowbar. Upper cut from Cena and he lands in a piles of trash and boxes. Cena lays there, then bounces up, but Kane is gone! Cena looks all around, but no Kane to be seen!

In Ring Segment

Ricardo is out there stumbling over his words. He says R-Truth is a really bad man. His mother is really ugly, has a mustache. R-Truth smells like a wet donkey. His breath is like a rotten burrito. R-Truth out sniffing his pits and looking confused. Ricardo looks like he’s about to cry. “Oh Lucy, I’m home!” says R-Truth with a strange and creep smile, batting his lashes. “Hola Ricardo!” he doesn’t know why Ricardo wants to pick a fight with R-Truth. R-Truth says ridc has it all wrong. “What?” R-Truth’s not a bad man. “What?” Now R-Truth is playing to Austin’s ‘What’s?’ R-Truth says he’s a good R-Truth. In fact, Little Jimmy told him to let bygones be bygones and let Ricardo go. Little Jimmy? “What?” Little Jimmy? “What?” Should he let Ricardo go? “NO!” Ricardo begs R-Truth. R-Truth spins around and says Little Jimmy doesn’t think much of Ricardo. Little Jimmy wants R-Truth to turn Ricardo into a human pinata. Ricardo then whines asking Miz for help. R-Truth says he’s bugging out like a little cockroach. R-Truth says Little Jimmy wants him to sing a song. La Cucaracha! Ricardo’s voice wiggles around. Finally Ricardo sings the song and gets into it wonderfully. “One more ‘gain!” Ricardo reaches and slaps R-Truth’s mic away on accident. R-Truth looks about to blow. R-Truth slams Ricardo face first to the mat.

Suddenly Miz attacks R-Truth from behind – he came through the crowd wearing a black hoodie. Miz stops to remove the hoodie and gloat. This gives R-Truth time and he attacks Miz. Miz flees through the stands. R-Truth doesn’t follow and gets back in the ring arguing with himself, or Little Jimmy.

Lights out, then Jericho back to the fans wearing his fun jacket from last week. Pyro and Jericho turns around and comes out to the ring. He poses on the apron, then into the ring. Jericho again tries to get the fans cheering as he points, but it just doesn’t work the way it did last week. His music keeps playing, so he leaves the ring to slap hands and pose with fans. More hand slapping, then back to the ring. His music just keeps going on and on. He splits up the fans and gets them cheering, but not loud like last week. Finally his music is quieter, but keeps going. He takes a mic and smiles in the ring.

The music finally stops and there’s a lot of “Y2J!” chants. He poses on a corner and they cheer for him. Jericho looks around and the chants that get loud again, then louder. Mic in hand, but Jericho looks like he’s going to cry, tears in his eyes. He looks around, his eyes red, looking teary. Jericho starts to cry and the chants fill the arena again. He can’t seem to force the tears out, though he looks to be bawling. Arm on the top rope, head shaking, below his eyes is wet, but no real tears showing.

  • Bmac4395

    The Funkasorus. Wow. I feel bad for Brodus Clay.

  • wes

    • Eiji

      and Bastian Booger. Or maybe that buffalo. SMH

  • Leonardo

    Brodus Clay shocker! liked it and hated it at the same time! He is now a crossover of The Godfather and Rikishi.
    Maybe Apollo Creed just got fat. don't know what to think, but i was funny though.

  • http://fb JJC

    I’m actually real happy for edge! That’s a pretty awesome accomplishment to be so young and already being inducted into the hall of fame. Congratulations edge!

  • Chris_Storm

    Word champ finally booked to get a clean win, at the cost of jobbing out a tag team champion instead of someone who doesn't have a title. I understand having Bryan beat another title holder to look strong after the cheap finish Friday, but it could've been against Ryder instead of Kofi. This hurt Kofi, but he and Evan have been booked into oblivion anyway.

    • Thundercat254

      I agree big time. If they was gonna job out a champion why couldn’t have been Evan Bourne, since he screwed up not Kofi smh.

    • H.M.

      It's not the end of the world. One loss. I do agree that the tag team champs have been booked horribly after that brief splash they mad in the scene. I hope they pick up that momentum.

      Stupid Bourne <.<

  • H.M.

    Well now we know what a combination of Viscera and the Godfather would look like.

  • Alex Vizcaino

    How about that there funk-o-caurus?

  • seth

    imma say that it b jericho tht wins the rumble and fights punk 4 the belt at wrestlemania yo

  • Dave

    Jericho..Best in the–Nevermind.

  • Tim

    During cenas match kane will take Ryder and cena will count out or get hit while being distracted by the titantron

  • Geezuz Kryste

    When is Mr Smiles going to talk!

  • mark

    Wasn’t Brodus Clay using Ernest Miller’s WWE theme song? They aren’t investing much in Clay’s character when they don’t give him an original entrance theme. He’s like a fat Flash Funk.

    • sforester

      Exactly. That piece made me ill because all this hype and we get this.

      • H.M.

        You must be devastated. I know you're one of those guys that have been gunning for Clay to debut as the next big monstrous guy lol.

        His new gimmick…totally split on it to be honest.

    • http://www.stiffmag.com Dave

      ^This.

  • Baba

    While I understand that the Wwe hall of fame isn't exactly credible, I've always liked watching the speeches of wrestlers inducted. With Edge, the 4 Horsemen and probably the Macho Man…. this is going to be an awesome HOF to watch.

    • Eiji

      If they were gunna induct Macho Man, he should of been the first inductee anounced. They better induct The Madness!!!

  • http://www.twitter.com/Jas0nVelez Jason V.

    Seriously, who here would change a flat tire while a homicidal maniac is coming after them and a hot chick they are with? Worst thing I've seen in a long time. The lack of logic is baffling.

    • H.M.

      That one little tidbit ruined a good bit of credibility that segment had going for it. Like, damn I'm sure Eve has a car, or hell call up a taxi.

    • MonsterMike42

      I guess you missed it. The tire had, like, a foot long gash in it. Or at least that's what it looked like.

    • keagan

      it was a joke and wasnt suppose to be logical. zach's character doesnt think logically.

  • http://www.stiffmag.com Dave

    Well so far WWE is off to a terrible start for 2012… Two weeks of bad shows so far… This one was way worse than last week’s even. Not one single good match on the show, way too much focus on the cartoony Kane/Cena feud, once again Punk screwed out of the main event spot, Broudus Clay the big fat Funk Master with Earnest Miller’s entrance music… I’ve said it for months that Clay is the most overrated IWC darling I’ve ever seen & cannot understand why everyone likes this guy so much- he’s not that good & now has a crappy gimmick to boot. Here’s to hoping all this filler crap goes away by Rumble.

    • H.M.

      Eh, these shows are building to something. Especially with that deal with Jericho. Kane/Cena feud…Kane's a smart guy and while I understood pretty much everything he was saying, I doubt a majority of the audience is even smart enough to get half of his vocab..lol.

      Clay's gimmick is retarded. I was originally split on it but now I've made up my mind. Punk deserves main event spot I agree.

      But then again Austin/Rock etc used to get main event spots despite not being in the world title pictures. Guess it's the thing with huge stars.

    • James Mitchell

      I enjoyed last weeks raw, but this weeks was one of the worst I’ve seen IMO. It just looked sloppy, from the mic work, spots, stories, commentating. I thinks Big Show said to Bryan “you know we’re stretching this, right?” open mic gaffe. Not sure what’s going on but I hope it gets better. Brodus’ return was hard to watch, and I’m really split on Edge’s HOF nod. OOH I’m happy for him for the obvious reasons, AOTO I feel it’s waaaaaaaay too soon. Maybe I’m just mildly disappointed that shuts down the possibility of him coming back to have a major supporting role of some kind, idk, just feels very early. I guess WWE/VKM is trying to capitalize on his popularity/timing to hype the HOF ceremony. Thoughts anyone?

  • Jake

    Jericho has always been my favorite, from the start. But with him not talking, it’s getting a little aggravating. Because I waited ALL week long for this. Not cool WWE, not cool.

  • Patrick_Peralta

    so much for the Rebirth of King Kong Bundy, who I think Brodus Clay looks like and he even does the same type moves in the ring.

    I agree with Jason V. Who the hell changes a tire with a Maniac after them. to hell with the car take a cab or buss just get the hell out of there.

    As for Eve I wondered how long before Eve caved in and agreed to go on a date with Ryder.

    a interesting Storyline. I wonder if his Long Island Z video will be from the Hospital this Friday.

    • Patrick_Peralta

      Good match with Daniel Bryan and Kofi. can't wait to see how Bryan beats Big Show Friday on SD.

  • armando

    There making a joke out of Brodus Clay and that's just plan wrong.

  • David

    brodus clay = pg version of big dick johnson

  • Chris

    Horrible crap. They have to change Broudus Clay was a joke the Kane angle is trash bring in young guys with credible themes and make the show interesting again. I am kinda liking the Jericho thing though. I’m thinking Jericho undertaker wrestlemania.

  • Jacob

    Wow. Another wasted segment. Thanks wwe for ruining Jericho.

  • Eiji

    Am I the only one that thought of the gimmick One Man Gang had as Akeem in the late 80's early 90's when broudus clay came out.

  • Morgan

    I’m a bit confused, doesn’t this mean Flair is getting inducted into the HoF twice now? Would he even be allowed to go with his TNA contract?

    • Areyou_ready?

      he will not get inducted twice he will be inducted as a leader member of the 4 horseman as a groupd not as an individual.

  • Chris

    Who did Brodus piss off for this gimick??????

  • Laura

    I've never seen Brodus Clay before, but WTF was that last night???? I don't know if I like this gimmick. Fat men have no business dressing or moving around like that. I thought they were going to bring him out like Goldberg back in WCW. All these months of hype and that's what they come up with? Great job WWE for managing to pull a Glacier. I still can't get that image of all that red out of my mind.

  • lsutiger

    maybe brodus clay will have a different gimmick every week he comes out like tyson kidd had different managers surely wwe writers can't be that dumb to put the garbage of that gimmick on tv every week. the only thing worse then tonights raw was watching my lsu tigers get their ass kicked by bama. brodus clay was the highlight of my night.

  • dan

    I did think the Punk match was a botched finish – you could clearly hear the ref say "I'm so so sorry" to Punk straight after and Punk looked pissed with him.

  • dan

    Also, put Jericho in a "Jacket on a pole" match. Or even better yet, a " Jacket / Inferno" match.

    Both last weeks Jericho segment and this weeks Brodus debut both made me instantly think "who books this crap" only to not be able to think if it was disaster or genius. Somewhere in the middle at the moment I think.
