WWE RAW Rewind: The Head Games Continue...

RAW opens up in Little Rock, Ark., with the arrival of the Gateway Entourage, the Bella Twins and tonight’s Guest Host, Cedric the Entertainer. With that, the show goes live with the arrival of DX!

 

Triple H w/Shawn Michaels vs. Cody Rhodes w/Ted DiBiase

Following their usual opening promos, and after giving their resume about Hell in the Cell, the physicality begins. Thanks to a distraction, Cody gets the upper hand.

Cody takes the fight from pillar to post, which is exactly where Cody’s shoulder is introduced to not once, not twice but three times. Triple H locks in a Crossface.

Back in the ring, Cody has a modified camel clutch and follows it up with a swinging neck breaker. DiBiase lands a cheap shot on Triple H as Cody distracts the ref.

Rhodes continues the punishment with a moonsault but is unable to get a three count. But as Cody tries to goad Michaels into a fight, Triple H starts bouncing back.

On the outside, Legacy takes out Michaels, but as Triple H prepares for a Pedigree, DiBiase sprints in with a steel chair to cause the DQ. Legacy continues the punishment with a Cross Rhodes delivered to The Game.

As the two try to finish off The Game, Shawn bounces back in with a sledgehammer that sends them sprinting away from trouble.

Following a preview of the WWE Championship Match at WWE Hell in A Cell, Lillian introduces tonight’s Guest Host: Cedric The Entertainer.

Cedric starts off with a series of jokes in regards to the second-and third-generation superstars…topping it off with the illegitimate son of a jackass: The Miz!!

Following the wisecracks, Santino comes out and decides that he wants to do stand up. As Cedric prepares to leave, Chavo comes out and becomes the biggest pun of Cedric’s jokes.

Chavo decides to blame the Guest Hosts for his losing streak with Hornswoggle. He then challenges Cedric to a match. Santino chimes in and accepts the battle for Cedric.

In the back, The Miz still has possession of Kofi’s United States Championship…for about five seconds as Kofi comes out of nowhere and drops Mizanin to regain possession of his stolen gold.

 

Evan Bourne vs. The Miz

Miz comes out showing his disdain for losing his stolen property. So he decides to take his punishment and frustration out on the high flyer.

But Bourne’s ingenuity allows him to break the pressure momentarily. Miz regains the advantage with a set of cheap shots before returning to the Double Underhook Boston Crab.

Miz reapplies the Crab, but Bourne manages to break free of the submission and begins to mount a comeback. Miz bounces back and delivers the Reality Check. Bourne begins to fight back with a hurracanrana before going up top to deliver the Airbourne.

But Miz slithers out of the way to deliver the Skull Crushing Finale to pick up the win over the high flyer. It’s amazing what this village idiot can do when he actually shows he can wrestle.

In the back, Randy Orton decides to give his Legacy partners the evening off mainly because he thinks that he can handle this simple contract signing. Also, just in case you weren’t paying attention, Cedric The Entertainer will face Chavo Guerrero tonight.

FYI: In two weeks, it’s the SmackDown Tenth Anniversary Special on MyNetwork TV.

Intermission: Contract Signing for WWE Championship Match @ Hell in a Cell

Jerry Lawler plays the role of mediator for these two combustible forces as Randy Orton is the first to make his way to the ring. As Orton paces in the ring with his trademark constipation scowl, the WWE Champion, John Cena, meets his Hell in a Cell opponent eye to eye. The Champ comes out to a raucous crowd in Little Rock.

Lawler begins by informing Orton that he can A) face Cena in Hell in a Cell or B) automatically give up his championship rematch. With that, Orton signs the contract and orders The King to leave the ring.

He turns his attention to the WWE Champion and informs him that he is more dangerous than ever. He also says that he will do whatever it takes to get his WWE Championship back.

After speaking his peace, Cena shows his cooler head by showing a video montage of Orton uttering the two words at Breaking Point: “I QUIT!!” Cena goes on to inform him that he has taken severe abuse from Orton at Breaking Point.

As he signs the contract, he informs Orton that if he doesn’t win this match, he’ll never get another shot at Cena again. He then drops the comedy and goes right to the seriousness by informing him that when that cell door gets locked, he will destroy Randy Orton.

Orton then informs Cena that he’s about to put him through hell right now, and with that, The World’s Largest Assclowns make their way to the ring.

Cena tries to fight his way out of the assault, but the numbers are too much for him…until MVP and Mark Henry make their way to the ring to even the odds.

The RAW Guest Host comes on the Titan Tron and informs all six men that they will fight each other tonight in a six-man tag team match.

 

Mickie James vs. Beth Phoenix

With Alicia Fox, the new #1 Contender for the Divas Championship, looking on, two old rivals add another chapter to their long rivalry. On the outside, Mickie delivers a Lou Thesz Press to the outside.

But thanks to a distraction from Fox, Phoenix gets control and the victory over the Divas Champion.

After the bell, Fox decides to interfere once more with her Fox Trot to the back of Mickie’s neck. The former wedding planner has made it clear that she will be the Divas Champion in due time.

 

United States Championship

Kofi Kingston vs. Jack Swagger

This match never took place mainly because of The Miz coming back out and trying to steal the US Title again. Swagger jumps out of the ring, drops The Miz and takes the gold himself.

With that, a match is made for Hell in a Cell: The Miz vs. Jack Swagger vs. Kofi Kingston for the United States Championship.

 

Chavo Guerrero vs. Cedric The Entertainer

Following Chavo stomping on Cedric’s trademark hat, Cedric disappears under the ring. As the match progresses, two other masked superstars make appearances as Ced’s partner, Big Nasty delivers the punishment, and Hornswoggle applies the Equalizer with the Cedric Splash.

Cedric returns from the under the ring to pick up the victory over Chavo before dancing it up with his accomplices.

 

Special RAW Moment

Lilian Garcia thanks the fans, the staff and the superstars of the WWE for their love and support over the past decade. Following a chant and a series of tears, the fans show their appreciation as she regains her composure and prepares for her final main event with the WWE.

 

Six Man Tag Team Warfare

The World’s Largest Assclowns & Randy Orton vs. The World’s Strongest Ballers & John Cena

Before the match, Big Show informs Randy Orton that if his team wins tonight, John Cena will face all three of them in a Gauntlet Match. With that, John Cena makes his way to the ring…followed by the World’s Strongest Ballers.

Jericho and Cena start the match, but Orton uses the duo to his advantage as they ambush the WWE Champion. Back in the ring, Orton begins to take Cena apart piece by piece. After picking him apart, Orton tags in the World’s Largest Nugget. After a few shots, he brings in the biggest sufferer of PMS. But Cena bounces back with a belly to belly before tagging in MVP.

MVP comes in and drops the knee before delivering the Ballin’ Elbow Drop on Jericho. But thanks to Orton, Show manages to slow the pace to their advantage. Show comes in and continues the punishment with a huge clothesline before bringing in Orton. Orton applies a huge headlock followed by a knee to the skull.

Jericho returns to the ring and begins to taunt MVP. But his taunting comes back to haunt him as MVP dodges the Rodeo Launch. After delivering the Mental Dissection, Orton makes a huge mistake by shoving MVP into his corner to get the tag to Mark Henry.

But thanks to Jericho, Orton delivers the RKO to Henry to pick up the win and force Cena to run the Gauntlet next week against the trio. The three celebrate the victory as RAW goes off the air.
