RAW Results 7/2/12 – I Will Show All Of Them…

RAW this week starts with video recap of Jericho facing Cena in the main event last week on RAW. It was the first time they’ve faced off in two years. Cena had Jericho up for an AA, but Big Show distracted and Jericho got Cena in the walls. Big Show in and a leg drop to the back of Cena’s neck. HUGE chokeslam to Cena. Big Show then locked on the colossal clutch. Big Show stood over Cena after it was all done.

In Ring Segment

Cena out to the ring, all smiles. He talks about what an exciting bunch there tonight. He says after seeing what happened to Cena at the hand of Jericho and Big Show, he’d be upset himself. He could come out vengeaful. After that he thanked both of them. Jericho said the truth, he hasn’t been in a MITBLM and needs to be prepared. That’s what happened! He was facing Jericho, then had to deal with Big Show – but it’s worth it for the Title shot. That was his crash course for MITB. After that, he needs to be prepared for everything! Giants, heavy metal singers, tables, ladders, chairs, monsters, body parts flying everywhere and he will be. He stands by what he said, at MITB, two things happen. Not only does Big Show lose, but he goes home an empty handed sewage baby (what?). Two, he’ll grab the contract, cash it in and become the next WWE Champ!

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” all the way to the way, but the fans give him “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” Cena says weird form of six degrees of separation, even Bryan agrees with him. Bryan says he didn’t even realize Cena was out there. Cena’s not relevant to him. Not true, at MITB, he’ll beat Punk to be the new WWE Champ! “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” And if, if Cena manages to get his hands around that (the case hanging above the ring) then his relevance to him will be the first Superstar cashing in and losing!

Cena says they’re strong words, but he can think of a person who disagrees with Bryan…

Actually, John, I can think of a lot more who disagree with Bryan. Punk comes down the ramp as he’s speaking. Does he disagree with Bryan? “YES!” Does Cena? “YES!” Does King? “YES!” Does the guy selling popcorn agree? “YES!” This side? “YES!” That side? “YES!” Punk gets the chants going, but Bryan demands them to shut up. He wants an original thought, not just steal his catchphrase.

Punk says, an original thought? Bryan’s ex-girlfriend is the Special Guest Ref for their match at MITB. And she will count Bryan’s shoulders 1-2-3. How’s that for an original thought. If Cena wins the MITBLM, then it comes down to them again, doesn’t it?

Jericho’s music hits. He comes out and says it’s not an original thought! Here’s an original thought, you’re still a wannabe! Bryan, if he’s talking about people stealing catchphrases, it happens all the time – “Mr. Best-In-The-World!”

“No problem Mr. Bon Jovi!” Is Punk’s reply! Jericho doesn’t like this much, but ignores it. Jericho tells Bryan to get past the tired one word and come up with some real catchphrases.

“Nobody asked you to be part of this conversation!” bellows Bryan.

“Would you please shut the hell up!” yells Jericho. Allow Jericho to welcome everyone to RAW Is Jericho! After tonight, none of you will ever EVER! be the same a-gain! (As much as Jericho doesn’t want to be Y2J, he is GLOWING after he finishes this line!) The fans who know this, love it. “You just need a few extra arrows in your quiver kid, it’s all you need,” Jericho says to Bryan. Jericho says Cena does need to be better prepared. Since Jericho invented the MITBLM, he will win it. He dares them, or anyone to come down to this ring and tell him otherwise!

Fire erupts! Out comes Kane to the ring. Up, over the side and in. Jericho holds still, his eyes looking very overly nervous. Kane pulls Jericho’s hand and mic up and simply says, “Otherwise!”

Big Show’s music, Cena is ready, over to the ropes calling for Big Show to come out, so Bryan attacks Cena from behind. Jericho, Kane and Punk get involved. A clothesline to Punk from Jericho, then Jericho is tossed in a corner as Kane goes off on Punk. Big Show with blows on Cena, then Kane attacks Big Show from the side. Big Show takes Kane down. Big Show is the only one left standing. He leaves the ring and all in it on the mat, except Bryan who is on the floor.

It’s a Teddy Long surprise, playah!

Video

January 1999 – Steph says she loves when Shane was training VKM to face SCSA at the Royal Rumble. She loves how Shane was yelling at VKM through a megaphone. VKM had to run in the snow, busting up ribs in a meat locker, chasing chickens in the snow. VKM didn’t actually catch the chicken.

Announce Segment

Sin Cara taps out over and over, but the match never started! A bunch of refs get ADR off him, and while ADR is smiling, the fans are again chanting loudly and in wonderful unison.

Backstage Segment

A hand is shown with a red X on the tape. The camera pulls back to show it’s AJ! Bryan sneaks up on her, steals a red rose from an arrangement, then walks up to AJ with it and says he’s always cared about her. He was frustrated at himself for messing things up and didn’t know how to react. He’s sorry. He presents her with the rose. She says it’s so sweet. And it has nothing to do with her being Special Guest Ref. Bryan doesn’t care about her. Bryan never cared about her. She can’t wait to win her match and run into the arms of the man the WWE sees as her soul mate. AJ rips the head of the rose off with her mouth, spits it out and hands Bryan the stem!

Triple H asked for a match against Brock at SummerSlam. Heyman came out the next night and went off on Trip, saying Brock wouldn’t face him, but then Heyman said something about Steph. Trip punched Heyman out and said he’d see Brock at SummerSlam.

WWE Studios

Cole asks Heyman if Brock accepts the challenge. Heyman says Brock has made a decision. Brock will give it to Trip, face to face at the 1000th RAW. He has no doubt Trip wants to face Brock, but not why we think. Will Trip need the money to fight Heyman? Yes, but there’s more. Why would Trip want to face Brock at SummerSlam? It’s Trip’s way out. It’s so Trip doesn’t have to face a beating in the ring. Brock will end Trip’s career. Then Trip can be the heir apparent, the loving father, doting husband. They will tell Trip he was the last of an era, went out on his shield, on a blaze of glory against Brock. If Brock accepts this match at SummerSlam, it won’t be a match, it will be a mercy killing. Heyman laughs into his fist.

    Anyone else mark out during Jericho's promo? I will never, eeeeeevvvvveeeeerrrr be the same again.

    • john4andersen

      I am missing this one … What is Jericho referring to with all that?

      • unknown

        he was referring all his catchphrases that he has.

      • Alex P

        Basically he was just saying all of his catchphrases because the knock on Daniel Bryan last night is that he has one catch phrase…or as Jericho said to him, "he needs to add more arrows to his quiver"

  • jdl

    Gotta love that "Nobody asked you to be a part of this conversation!" Bryan may not cut the best promos, but he has this uncanny ability to say the most ridiculously perfect things at the right time.

    • Anand

      Agreed. Jericho saying you need a bit more arrows in your quiver kiddo was awesome :)

  • kbunyon

    Please bear with me, I had minor surgery this afternoon and I'm a bit woogie.

    I totally marked out for Jericho!!!!

    Was that a wardrobe malfunction for Sin Cara or did Del Rio really tear him a new asshole?

  • Wes

    ADR squashing Sin Cara like that makes me wonder if Cara failed another wellness and will be written off

    • Anand

      Or maybe they wanna push ADR as an unstoppable force :) ADR beat even Rey mysterio during his last push before he got injured and was sidelined. maybe this is his second push.

    • James M>>>

      Yeah, and it’s not like he squashed him in a regular match. He jumped him and began beating him b4 the match started.

  • christopher525

    Ok, main event tag match, throw away 8-man tag, and a random "mixed tag match." Horrible…

    • Anand

      I was watching some of the old attitude era RAW shows and there were so many meaningful feuds and so many title defenses. the WWF title was defended almost every alternate week and the mid-card titles the euro title, the ic title, the hardcore title and the tag titles were defended so frequently. guys like Jericho, benoit, eddie guerrero were involved in mid-card feuds while rock, austin, trip h and angle were involved in the wwf title feud. The shows were so much more entertaining and crazy back then…

      WWE need not bring back the blood since they are PG but they can bring back crazy storylines and multiple feuds in order to build up big stars. If they hadnt let guys like Jericho be a mid-card champ and have great rivalries back then, we wouldnt have a main-eventer jericho now. WWE needs to realize this and let mid-carders to have a feud too instead of having them as comic relief.

      • kbunyon

        I couldn't agree more! You hit the nail on the head! The storylines don't have to be sexual, or dirty in any way to be crazy, they just have to be absurd!

        I miss those days!

        KB

      • H.M.

        Completely agree. I was so happy when WWE aired a simple video package highlighting the feud b/w Rhodes and Christian on SD! a few weeks ago…shows how much WWE has fallen with the way they produce memorable low-mid card stars that we KNOW oughta burst into the main event scene(only Ziggler and maybe Rhodes come to mind currently.). WWE has shoved guys like ADR down our throats way too fast and too hard(sounds dirty but bare with me). The guy has so many 'accolades' (former 2 time WWE champ, RR 2011 winner, MITB 2011 winner, taking people out constantly etc) yet I doubt most fans truly care about his character – it's flat, one dimensional and vanilla.

        • Anand

          Well said. Had he been given a proper mid-card feud and then let fans grow on him, he would've been much more popular with the fans. This is the main problem in the WWE now. the Mid-card titles are props and comic relief and not opportunities to expand/grow the mid-card division so that any of those guys can take the spotlight when the opportunity presents itself.

          All of the all time greats of today – Stone cold, Rock, HBK, Triple H, Jericho etc were IC champs once upon a time and moved on to main-event status gradually.

          Look now – We have Ryback, Sandow, Cesario, Sin Cara, Brodus – all getting squash matches with no feud or story. IC championship feud between cody and christian isnt given as much importance as it should. US title is a joke. no mid-card depth at all… No wonder vince is running behind past big names to make one -off appearances.

          Cant WWE just concentrate in growing their own mid-card divisions? These things dont happen overnight but when done properly can yield results in a few months…

          Hopefully people are listening!!!

          • H.M.

            Yeah, that's very true. The reason we're so into Punk is because we saw him in the mid-card scene/upper-midcard scene in the past. These guys have been given a chance to develop. WWE's midcard is actually really strong – the problem is how they're being used. Ryback is amazing to watch – now I'm sure I speak for the fans when I say I want to see something more from him – a LEGITIMATE match. The tag title scene also has potential with all of the current guys. Give some more character development to the tag teams and the fans will care more about the division. I also seriously want WWE to remove the US title from Santino and put it on someone who would benefit greatly from it. As for a meaningful non main event/midcard feud I can think of one right off the bat: Sin Cara vs ADR in the future! Yeah, going off on a tangent but you know what I mean lol.

  • The Dude

    I advise anyone that didn’t see the RAW to 3 hrs commercial to check it out! It’s hilarious!

    • kbunyon

      The WWE had been missing the mark on their commercials for events and PPVs lately, but this was wonderful! It reminds me of the movie spoofs they did a number of years ago for Mania in LA. Actually, there was a couple of good ones for a Royal Rumble that was a spoof on West Side Story. WWE had been dropping the ball, but this was just beautiful!

      KB

      • Austin

        I couldn’t say it better myself. Most mid carders today are so forgettable and bland with a few exceptions. I want to bring up Del Rio’s debut as an example of debuting someone right. They built the man up with great pre-debut video promos,then he made an impression(which virtually no mid-carder is doing today) by destroying Rey Mysterio who was still pretty relevant at that point. Then the good stuff started. He started showing up in expensive cars,had a nice catchphrase(but you already knew that)had a personal ring announcer,and a fresh in ring style. Of course everything started to get stale after a year or so but what really destroyed him,I think,was his two premature world title reigns. He was put as the third wheel,and was booked like he couldn’t hang with Super Cena or the ultra popular CM punk. His Cena/Punk fued and his two injurys have destroyed his momentum so much that the best thing to do at this point is to start from scratch. My point is that they treat mid-carder like filler,not giving them anything interesting to work with and if they even start to do anything close to getting over they are then pushed to a world title reign too soon(Miz,Del Rio,Jack Swagger) or are turned into comedy relief dorks(R-Truth) This really worries me because the only truly mid-carder turned true blue main-eventer in the last few years is CM Punk. The WWE are out of main event stars and if they don’t start making any soon I fear they won’t be here much longer.

        • Anand

          Cant agree with you more …

          Miz actually had a lot more charisma than Swagger or Del Rio. He was sincerely boo'd and hated by fans and he had one amazing feud with Cena. The guy is obnoxious and has a loud mouth and can evoke hatred from the fans that made him one of the top heels of the company. From a former WWE champ, he has faded down into obscurity…

          Hope Miz gets the push that he so deserves!!!

          PS: I am not a Miz fan but like him as a heel and competitor.

          • Mr.Love

            I agree with absolutely everything except for the miz. He had a lengthy title reign and I think deserves main event reconization (I know I spelled that wrong)

          • James M>>>

            I think for miz to get it back he needs to make it more believable like it used to be. B4, it seemed like it was natural and people have him tons of real heat. Now, it seems forced and not as genuine as it was during his run. Just my $0.02.

        • H.M.

          You're also forgetting the Miz. Ziggler also seems to be destined for main event greatness. I'm seriously just waiting for him to explode as a huge star sometime soon in the coming months. These guys have gotten the chance to DEVELOP. That's the thing. WWE started off great with ADR and he quickly became an IWC darling. But WWE pushed this guy waaayyy to fast. The first nail in the coffin was his victory at RR 2011 which I feel was too soon. While Sheamus wasn't a favourite of mine to win the RR 2012 nor was I truly thrilled, he's really made himself worthwhile with his current reign(could cut it with the corny jokes here and there though).

    WWE has become unwatchable for me anymore! I practically fasfoward through the whole show. Did like seeing DDP back in the ring though.

    I absolutely hate the build to any ppv for the past couple years with exception of rock or brock its always freakin tag matches with guys that will face each other on ppv… Dont they have house shows to work together so we can have more interesting stories on tv and ppv?

    The "Did you know?" facts are stupid, but related to this, I wish Justin Bieber was never born!

    I hand to at least congratulate WWE this week – not only did we not finish with Cena(thank god) but a DIVA standing tall WITH the backing of the crowd! I hope they don’t blow off this angle after money in the bank. I really feel AJ could get over massively with the fans who are normally bored with the divas and use there matches for toilet breaks. AJ in my opinion.. Could be the next big thing. Congrats to her I taking this oppuetunity so well.
