RVD comes out first to a pretty solid reaction, as he is returning to Raw for the first time since being sent to NXT. John Morrison is out next, and the crowd gives him a solid reaction. He gets in the ring and grabs a mic.
John: Listen, I'd like to take this moment to address Drew McIntyre. Drew, I just want to you to know, that this is nothing personal. I'm not doing this because I have a grudge against you. With that said, Tiffany is no longer interested in you. She is in love with a new man. And that new man is me. So why don't you just cut your losses, back off, and focus on winning a match?
Morrison laughs before getting ready to fight. The ref calls for the bell and the match begins. JoMo immediately goes after Rob, connecting with a huge dropkick. When Van Dam gets up to his feet, Morrison hits a back suplex, sending RVD crashing to the mat. Rob gets up quickly, but is sent careening to the outside as JoMo hits a clothesline. RVD gets up quickly, but gets sent into the side of the announce table as John hits a suicide somersault plancha! Both men hit the table hard and aren't able to get up for quite some time. John gets to his feet first, and takes advantage of the opportunity. He grabs Van Dam by the hair and repeatedly smacks his face into the announce table before tossing him back into the ring. He goes for the pin.
Morrison and Rob battle back and forth with punches, but Van Dam takes control with a kick to the gut, followed up with a leaping implant DDT. With John out of it, RVD goes running an attempts a springboard split-legged moonsault. He hits it and goes for the cover.
Not stopping to argue, Rob pulls his opponent up and Irish whips him into the corner. Van Dam then does a rolling somersault towards JoMo before connects with a monkey flip. When Morrison gets up, RVD nails a double undertook facebuster. Instead of making the cover, Rob climbs out to the apron. As John gets back to his feet, Van Dam attempts a slingshot somersault senton. However, JoMo is able to tuck his knee, crushing Rob's torso. John takes advantage of his opponents miscue, lifting RVD up and hitting a well-executed Capoeira Kick! He goes for the win.
When Rob stands, Morrison goes for a running crossbody, but Van Dam intercepts him with a Super Kick out of nowhere. In desperation. JoMo rolls out of the ring to avoid being pinned. However, RVD doesn't wait, heading up to the top rope. When John turns around, Van Dam connects with a diving crossbody to the outside! RVD then goes running at JoMo, but Morrison hits a drop toe hold, sending Rob face first into the barricade! With his opponent completely unconscious, John drags RVD back into the ring and makes the pin attempt.
Angered that he couldn't finish the match, John jumps on top of RVD and begins throwing punch after punch. After a few moments, Morrison backs off before heading up to the top rope. However, RVD takes John's legs out from under him before he can pull off a move. Rob quickly climbs up to the top rope along with Morrison and hits a few punches before attempting a hurricanrana. He hits it, sending John flipping across the ring! He makes the cover.
J.R.: How the hell did John kick out of that one?
Jerry: What a back and forth affair we have! Neither man can gain the advantage long enough to pull out a victory.
Rob gets up first, as he prepares for JoMo to stand. When John gets to his feet, RVD attempts a Super Kick, but John ducks out of the way before hitting a Pele Kick! With Van Dam down and out, Morrison hits his patented breakdancing leg drop. As Rob gets up, JoMo connects with a choke backbreaker, followed up with a Russian leg sweep. He makes another pin attempt.
RVD tries fighting back with a couple of rights, but they have little effect as John hits a roundhouse kick before nailing a belly to back wheelbarrow face buster. RVD is helpless as JoMo drags towards the corner, setting him up for Starship Pain. John attempts his finishing maneuver, but Rob is able to roll out of the way, sending Morrison crashing to the canvas. RVD takes advantage, as he hits a quick corkscrew leg drop. Rob doesn't stop there, nailing John with a spinning heel kick! Rob does his signature taunt as the crowd chants Rob Van Dam along with him. Van Dam then connects with his patented Rolling Thunder! He makes the pin.
RVD is visibly astonished, but doesn't stop to argue. Instead, he jumps up to the top rope and goes for 5 Star Frog Splash! However, he is once again sent crashing down as JoMo slides out of the way just in time. With RVD lying unconscious near the corner, JoMo takes another shot at Starship Pain. This time he hits it, before making the cover.
HERE IS YOUR WINNER....JOHN MORRISON!!!!
John doesn't celebrate his victory alone, as Tiffany runs down the entrance ramp. The two share a kiss before leaving the ring.
J.R.: I can only imagine how this makes Drew feel!
Jerry: Who is Tiffany actually with? Talk about a two-timer!
