My Thoughts on May 31st’s WWE Raw
The Memorial Day Broadcast had Guest Host Actor Ashton Kutcher from the movie ‘Killers’ but Here is a Few Things I saw in the broadcast that Interested Me.
Daniel Bryan v The Miz
Daniel kicked Miz a few times and knocked him down with a punch. Daniel locked in an arm bar but Miz got the ropes. Miz took down Daniel with a lariat to the back of the head and started punching him in the face. Miz kicked Daniel in the face hard for 1.
Daniel smacked Miz so Miz started punching him in the corner. Miz hit his running corner clothesline. Miz hit a double axe handle off the top rope and started smacking Daniel. Daniel pulled down Miz and locked him into a crossface variation. Miz reversed it into a roll up for 2 but Daniel reversed that into his own roll up for 3. Michael Cole looked like he crapped himself.
Miz attacked Daniel and threw him out of the ring. Miz pulled Daniel over to the announce table and told him to apologize. Daniel elbowed Miz in the midsection and threw him into Michael Cole!
My Take on Bryan v. Miz…
Now that Daniel’s been long eliminated, and the Bryan v Cole feud is heating up , Daniel Bryan could possibly stay in the WWE rather than returning to the WWE farm FCW, and with Bryan finally getting more exposure out of the other Eliminated Rookies (despite having a legendary career in other promotions including ROH ad other) as Jim Ross says: ‘This is about to pick up’
The Uso’s (Jay & Jimmy, who are Rikishi’s Sons & Tamina, daughter of Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka) + Unified tag team champions The Hart Dynasty(Tyson Kidd & David Hart Smith & Natalya)
If You Remember the May 24th Raw show from Toledo,Ohio at the End of the Hart Dynasty’s Match with Vladimir Koslov and William Regal, these three attacked the Harts following their victories, this week We Learned who they Are..They Are the Uso’s
Jay said they have the whole world tripping and wondering about them. Jay said the only way for them to make a name for themselves was to come out there and put the Unified champs on their backs. Jimmy said they wanted to let THD that they aren’t the only family that runs deep in the business. Jimmy said they aren’t the stereotypical Samoans. Jimmy said they had to make a name and THD just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Tamina said they respect where THD comes from. Tamina said the Harts have a respect that they don’t have, just like her father Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, who was put in the corner at the first WM. Tamina said that’s not going to happen anymore because they were born and created for one purpose; to dominate. The Hart Dynasty came out. THD started out in control but wound up getting beat up and splashed again.
My Take on the future of this Rivalry..
Since the Uso’s debuted May 24th, I Would Hopefully like to see a match again the two factions, and with RAW GM Bret Hart telling THD He’s not gonna be doing favors for them, Let’s See where this goes..
Mr McMahon’s Return to WWE TV since Wrestlemania 26
Vince McMahon came out and struck a pose. Vince said Bret looks 10 years older than he did at WM. Vince said he’s never looked and felt better, although he didn’t feel or look to well at WM when Bret bashed him with a steel chair over and over. Vince asked how many times he got hit and Bret said 18. Vince said that would have injured a normal man. Vince asked if Bret got all that violence out of him. Bret said most of it. Vince said Bret must have gotten the anger out because he jumped on the offer to be GM.
Vince said he’s sure Bret’s wondering why he offered him the job. Vince said it could be a big conspiracy, or maybe it’s keeping your enemies closer, or maybe it’s because the fans wanted him for the job. Vince said so far Bret has been making popular choices. Vince said going down the line Bret will have to make some tough decisions, they won’t be easy and they won’t be popular.
Vince said to treat the fans like children. Vince said when your mentoring children they can’t make the right decisions, so you have to do it for them even if they resent you. Vince said he was there to wish him luck. Bret said he didn’t believe that. Vince said Bret wants to believe it.
Vince said he thinks it’s a wonderful story how he was banished 13 years ago and now he’s the GM. Vince wished Bret luck and said he hopes that Bret’s story as GM has a happy ending.
My Take on Vince’s Return…
Vince’s Return to WWE TV since WM26 was a complete surprise, However on Friday Night Smackdown!, Vince is represented by a letter given to then Intercontinental Champion Drew Mcintyre to use to Overrule GM Teddy Long’s authority. I would like to see Vince on Smackdown! to explain those letters.
WWE champion John Cena & Evan Bourne v. Edge & Sheamus
John said he had some unfortunate news. John said due to the actions of Edge Randy Orton has reinjured his shoulder and can’t compete.
John said it was a brilliant plan. John said there was one problem; everyone in the WWE hates Edge and Sheamus. John said he can choose anyone to be his partner. John said his partner is a human wrecking ball, who is still very mad at Edge. John said his partner would love to kick Edge’s teeth in. It was Evan Bourne.
Earlier That Night before RAW..
Earlier in the Night Prior to Raw going on air, Edge was stomping on Evan Bourne. following the Dark Match between Dos Caras and Yoshi Tastu, Edge was addressing the audience when Evan came out and challenged him, then RAW started with Edge stomping the **** out of Evan.
The Match Begins…
Edge kneed John and started punching him in the corner. John Irish whipped Edge and hit the running bulldog before tagging in Evan. Evan jumped off the top rope onto Edge’s arm and began attacking it.
Evan hit a big hurricarana followed by a roundhouse kick. Back from commercial John was punching Sheamus. John elbowed Sheamus against the turnbuckle and tagged in Evan. Evan kicked Sheamus twice but then ran into an elbow. Sheamus elbowed Evan in the back and tagged in Edge. Edge started attacking Evan’s back. Sheamus tagged in and tried to hit Evan with a vertical suplex but Evan kneed his way out of it and began kicking Sheamus.
Sheamus pushed Evan and hit him with the Polish hammer. Sheamus tagged in Edge. Evan got out of a body slam but ran into a big boot. Edge locked in a headlock. Evan hit an enziguri and tagged in John. John exploded on Sheamus but Sheamus got out of the attitude adjustment and hit a powerslam. John ducked the bicycle kick and Evan kicked Sheamus in the head. John dodged a spear and hit the attitude adjustment. Evan tagged in and hit Air Bourne for the 3!
My Take on Evan Bourne…
Evan Bourne is Finally getting a push after his arrival to Raw following the WWE Draft where he was on the now axed ECW brand. It was a great response to Edge’s actions before the broadcast. Evan has a lot to offer and is an Excellent Addition to the Raw Brand.
