WWE Night of Champions: Kofi & Evan Bourne Retain Titles Against Miz and R-Truth
-The token hype video kicks us off and I'm consistently amazed at how awesome the WWE production team is. If I could pick any position in that company, it would be either combing through old tapes for WWE 24/7 or making those recap videos.
-Your hosts are Cole, King, and Booker...wow, glad they brought JR back.
Air Boom vs. Awesome Truth
Truth debuts his new entrance theme which is "What's Up" with new lyrics to make it "You Suck"...not bad. I'll give WWE credit for one thing, they are actually trying to get Bourne and Kofi over as an actual team instead of just two single wrestlers stuck together for a storyline.
Kofi and Miz have a slugfest, won by Kingston, and Bourne comes in with a double stomp for two. More double teaming allows Kofi to get a near fall so Truth tags in and gets more of the same. The heels take a powder to regroup and Air Boom follows with stereo dives from the top to the arena floor.
Back in, a Miz cheapshot puts Bourne in our face-in-peril role for the minute and Truth chokes him out on the ropes for two. The heels trade off on Bourne and get a few near falls but Bourne suplexes out of a front facelock for the double KO. Miz cuts off the hot tag attempt to keep the tag match formula alive and work Bourne over a bit more.
Bourne finally counters a Skull Crush Finale and leaps to get the hot tag to his partner and Kofi is, indeed, a house of fire. Boom Drop sets up a TIP attempt but Truth runs interference to stall for some time. Kofi still catches Miz with the SOS for two but Truth gets a cheap shot from the outside and Miz plants him with a DDT for a close two.
With Truth distracting the referee, Bourne pulls the old 80s heel move as he claps his hands together to simulate a tag and comes in illegally. Odd spot for a white bread babyface to pull. Anyways, Bourne misses Air Bourne and takes a DDT for two, broken by Kofi.
The referee misses a heel tag and, while he's arguing with Truth, Miz hits the Skull Crushing Finale for about a 10-count but the referee is occupied. After all the cheating and referee shenanigans, Miz finally snaps and shoves over the referee, earning the DQ for his team.
Winners and STILL Champions: Air Boom
-I don't understand that booking at all. Why book your face tag team to pull heel spots AND have Miz get a visual pinfall on your new tag champions? It's like they accidentally booked the match backwards or something. The heels abuse the referee after the match because they are EVIL! **3/4 for some decent stuff.
