WWE Raw July 18, 2011: Rey Mysterio Defeats R-Truth to Head to Finals
-Meanwhile, Tough Enough winner Andy apparently comes from a rough neighborhood
Semifinal Tournament Match
Rey Mysterio vs. R-Truth
Truth slugs away and gets two off a corner whip then adds a suplex. He catches Mysterio with a clothesline as King proclaims the match over but it, surprisingly, only gets two. What does Lawler think this is, Survivor Series? Truth bores the crowd by staying in control but Mysterio dumps him with an armdrag and follows with a dive between the ropes to send us to commercial break.
We return with Rey Rey fighting out of a chinlock and rolling up Truth for two. That rallying is quickly stopped by a leg lariat for two as we are rapidly approaching 10:45PM and still have a "world title match" to get to. Truth hits his corkscrew elbow for two and catches Rey with a forearm on a 619 attempt to halt another comeback. Falcon arrow gets another two for Truth but he hits buckle on a corner charge and Mysterio comes back with a high cross body for two. Dropkick to the face for a near fall but Truth shakes the cobwebs and hits Truth or Consequences but Rey is in the ropes. Mysterio gets desperate and necksnaps Truth before hitting the 619 and the splash gets the win to send himself to the finals.
Winner: Rey Mysterio
-A really good TV match with good spots and a good story told. Truth can definitely hang with guys like Mysterio but struggles when placed under a spotlight with muscleheads like Cena ***.
