I hope you all had a great week. Once again it's time to kick back and review what all went down and some things you might have overlooked.


This past Monday, RAW was hosted by NXT's "A-list" superstar, David Otunga. The rookie made a very surprising move by teaming up John Cena and Dave Batista against Mizshow.

But, rewind the clocks back to August 4th, 2008. On that night, the team of John Cena and Batista defeated Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase for the Tag Team Titles. There's a method to his madness.

Not to anyone's surprise, the team didn't work. Batista left the match when Cena needed the tag. Otunga made another appearance and rescheduled the match, only this time, David Otunga was John Cena's partner.

Later on, Sheamus ranted about the results of Wrestlemania and his presence on RAW and the WWE. Triple H responded by making his way down to the ring. With the help of his long time friend, the sledgehammer, Triple H sent a message to Sheamus. It's looking more and more like some kind of no disqualification match at Extreme Rules featuring Sheamus and Triple H to settle the score.

The bell rang for the start of the main event tag match. Cena started the match off as expected against the Miz. As Cena was slowly manipulated by Mizshow, a tag was never so needed. Cena lunged for his partner for a tag, but Otunga left ringside.

The mystery was soon clear as Batista walked down the ramp. This one had been planned. Distracted, Cena lost the match after a fatal right hand from the Big Show. Batista continued to the ring to deliver a devastating Batista-bomb to the helpless John Cena.

The spotlight was once again on Batista, as he thinks it should always be. He decided to invoke his rematch clause for the WWE Championship at Extreme Rules.

Not just any match, but a Last Man Standing match.
