WWE Raw August 1. 2011: R-Truth and Miz Defeat Mysterio and Morrison
-By the way, if you're not watching the Best of 30 Years of MTV on VH1 Classic, then I don't know what to tell you. Between that and 90s Nickelodeon shows on Teen Nick after midnight, I feel like I'm 10 years old all over again.
-Meanwhile, John Cena promises to hog as many spotlights as possible tonight.
R-Truth & The Miz vs. Rey Mysterio & John Morrison
Do people even remember that Morrison and Miz were tag partners? So much for that monumental breakup. The aforementioned tag partners start and Miz takes a flapjack but hits a clothesline after Morrison gets preoccupied with Truth. A suplex gets two but Morrison legsweeps Miz and brings in Mysterio for a seated senton for two. A flying headscissors sends Miz to the floor and Truth shortly follows so the faces take out both with dives from the ring as we take another commercial break. This show feels very slow tonight.
We return with Truth in control of Rey and he goes back to 1975 to hook an abdominal stretch. I'll bet Mysterio loved to go from being world champion to a mid-card tag match in under a week. Miz comes in with a boot to the face and we hit a chinlock. Mysterio fights out and hits an enzuigiri but a short DDT from the Miz gets two. Truth checks in and REALLY amps up the workrate with...another chinlock. A corkscrew elbow stops another babyface comeback and Rey Rey does his best Ricky Morton impression. Miz gets his clothesline in the corner but eats a dropkick when he comes off the top and it's finally hot tag Morrison.
Morrison cleans house as usual and looks for Starship Pain but Miz yanks Truth out of the way at the last second. Miz also manages to stop a 619 and dump Rey in the front row, forcing Morrison to turn his attention to Miz. Truth takes advantage of the situation and hits a reverse STO for the win.
Winners: R-Truth & The Miz
-Good formulaic tag match with good crowd heat ***. Truth hits Morrison in the face with a bottle of water because he's EVIL!
-Meanwhile, HHH no-sells Punk's lines and again tries to get over his "strictly business" catchphrase.
