The Bret thing is going to go one of three ways:

 

1 - Bret's leg injury is a "work" by Bret himself to fabricate an injured leg in the storyline. Vince now gets overly confident about his chances, challenges Bret to a match, calls him chicken, gutless etc. and thinks he's goading Bret into a match. Bret agrees, we have a contract signing or whatever on Raw where Bret then reveals it was a fake. Vince is already committed to the match and we get the pre-match hype of knowing that Vince is going to get his ass kicked. Of course... they could also have this revelation at Mania itself.

 

2 - Bret's leg injury is how they'll be able to put Bret into a match with Vince without him risking taking head shots. Vince will simply work over Bret's newly broken leg during the match in the way that The Rock did to Austin so that Austin wouldn't have to take any head shots at 'Mania XIX. And by actually going through with a Street Fight-type match, Cena and Batista's upcoming match can be a separate contest even though it has ties to the Vince/Bret feud.

 

3 - Bret's leg injury causes Bret to select Cena to fight for his honor against Batista, selected by Vince. Stipulation is added where if Vince wins... Bret is gone from the WWE forever, if Bret wins... he gets 5 minutes alone with Vince. Cena wins the match, Bret gets his 5 minutes... sharpshooter is applied, crowd goes wild... the end.

 

I honestly don't know which of the three it will be, but I'd select 1 or 2 as being more likely. The Cena-Batista feud might have had its roots in the Bret-Vince thing, but they really have been keeping them separate. This could just all be a swerve to bring the two feuds together before Mania, but we'll just have to wait and see.

After tonights PPV its safe to say that at WrestleMania 27 we will see EDGE vs Y2J for the World Heavyweight Championship, Batista vs Cena for the WWE Championship, Micheals vs Undertaker and most likely CM Punk vs Rey Mysterio if they aren't in MITB.

 

There likely won't be a MITB at WM this year, with the MITB PPV coming in the summer.

People seem to be convinced that it'll be Cena (with Bret) vs. Batista (with Vince) for the WWE title and some kind of extra stipulation I guess. I guess that could work out okay, it would put Bret into another Mania Main Event moment. Maybe like if Cena wins, Bret gets a match and if Vince wins, Bret is gone from the WWE forever. Cena wins, gets the title and then Bret vs. Vince becomes the "real" main event. They have a short 5-10 minute match, Bret wins with the sharpshooter and gets his final bow at the end of Mania. Could be nice.

I really hope we dont see him in action. I'd like to remember the old bret hard, not the post stroke one.

 

We'll have to see what happens tonight.

Please WWE...MAKE BATISTAS NEVER ENDING PUSH STOP!

 

I am going to take roids, learn 2 moves and 2 moves only, and be completely awful on the mic. I should be a world champ within a month.

TONIGHT: It’s Batista’s first Raw as new WWE Champion after besting John Cena last night following the Raw Chamber Match. Maybe we’ll get an explanation from Vince McMahon for why he did what he did. Speaking of Vince, apparently Bret won’t be there tonight. Also, perhaps we’ll get a Divas Title match since the contest was postponed last night. Something to move the MVP & Mark Henry vs. ShoMiz feud is likely. Will Undertaker and Shawn Michaels be on the show? Edge will be there to make his announcement as to what champion he’ll face at Wrestlemania. WWE.com is advertising Money-In-The-Bank qualifying matches beginning tonight, so apparently it’s still on for this year’s ‘Mania. And count on some NXT hype. Oh, and your guest hosts are singer Jewel and bull rider Ty Murray.

 

-WWE Open.

 

-Highlights of Batista being sent out to destroy John Cena last night were shown.

 

-Raw Open.

 

-The usual pomp and circumstance started off the show from Indianapolis. Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler said Shawn Michaels will be here tonight to explain his actions at the Chamber. But will Taker be there to confront him?

 

-And there was a mechanical bull in the arena, as “the best bull rider of all-time� Ty Murray and wife Jewel were the guest hosts. Can anyone back up that claim made of Murray?

 

-For some reason, we started with the World Heavyweight Champion, Chris Jericho, who was introduced by Justin Roberts. Jericho was cackling all the way to the ring. “I’m going to Wrestlemania!� was how Jericho started his spiel. Jericho realized that not long ago, he did promise to never appear on Raw again. Jericho said he changed his mind last night when he beat five guys in an Elimination Chamber. He reiterated that he was the World Heavyweight Champion, one who just beat The Undertaker twice in a roll. The only thing that could bring Jericho’s evening down? That’s right: Edge.

 

His music hit and Edge came out of the crowd to spear him. Edge said Jericho is going to Wrestlemania….against him. They showed a replay of what just happened. And yes, that was all Edge had to say. At least, for now. Predictable is OK if it’s still entertaining, which this has been.

 

-Cole and Lawler talked on-camera about what just happened. But not for long, as John Cena’s music hit while they were talking.

 

-Cena stormed to the ring, minus all of his normal to-dos. He was MAD. Cena told everyone to add him to the list of people Vince McMahon has screwed. He recapped how he was screwed, but did say he gets a re-match, and wanted it right now. Instead, Mr. McMahon’s music hit and the Chairman came out. Vince said he is all about business and he said he made a business deal with Batista, wherein Batista would take out his trash (Bret Hart) for him. McMahon said Bret is in Calgary with his broken ankle or broken leg or whatever, and he’s embarrassed. Because Dave helped him, he granted Batista a WWE Championship match any time. But not a World Title match? Vince said it wasn’t personal, just business. McMahon reminded Cena that last week, he told Batista, “if you want some, come get some.� Cena said that, well, tonight, he’s taking it back. McMahon said, “in your dreams.� Apparently, Batista won’t defend the title until Wrestlemania. Besides, Sheamus has a return match too. McMahon wondered aloud which one deserved the title shot at ‘Mania. Crowd was in favor of Cena. McMahon said he’d make a business deal with him tonight. He’ll put him in a match tonight and if Cena wins, he faces Batista at Wrestlemania. If he loses, Sheamus fights Batista at ‘Mania. Cena’s opponent tonight? Batista. OK, it would make more sense to do Sheamus vs. Cena with the winner to face Batista at ‘Mania for the title, but I’m guessing they didn’t want to job Sheamus here.

 

[Commercial Break]

 

(1) Maryse vs. Gail Kim – Finals in the Tournament for the Divas Championship

Kim with a quick roll-up after a missed clothesline. Only got a one-count. Maryse missed a corner charge and Kim hit a right hand, then a clothesline for two. Maryse’s selling is particularly bad here. Maryse sent Kim head-first into the buckle. Kim went for her finisher (“eat defeat� according to Cole), but Maryse held onto the ropes. Jackknife cover for two by Kim. Kim went for a cross-body off the top, but Maryse snuck underneath her, and apparently, Kim couldn’t see her there. And for some reason, Maryse hit the floor and did some major selling. What is going on here? Maryse finally went for a French Kiss, but an inside cradle by Kim got two. Kim climbed upon Maryse’s shoulders, but Maryse dropped her throat-first across the top rope, then gave her the French Kiss. It’s over.

 

Winner: Maryse, at 2:50. I was kinda looking forward to this one, but it was awful. They were most definitely not on the same page.

 

-Tonight, John Cena faces Batista in an opportunity for Cena to get a re-match for the WWE Titel at Wrestlemania.

 

-Also, Shawn Michaels will explain his actions from last night. Will Taker confront Michaels?

 

[Commercial Break]

 

-More shots of the mechanical bull in the arena.

 

-Ty Murray was talking with the Bella Twins backstage and Jewel was conversing with Eve Torres and Kelly Kelly. Jewel explained why she was in crutches, apparently, from a mechanical bull. Murray said the important thing is that they’re here, and apparently, there will be a Divas bull-riding contest later on. Jillian Hall walked in and she assumed Jewel knew who she was. She said people had told her she was better at Jewel songs than Jewel herself. Hall began to sing, but Jewel cut her off and showed her how to do it. Jillian accused Jewel of trying to show her up. She said she’d send Jewel back to living in her car. Jewel said she’d take the advice of her good friend Sharon Osbourne, and she slapped Jillian. Jillian whimpered off the screen as the other divas cheered.

 

-Randy Orton was staring into space (or staring at the TV screen and Jewel’s rack from the last segment) when Cody Rhodes came in. He apologized again, and threw Ted DiBiase under the bus again. He said Ted had been talking all about how he wanted to beat Orton in the Chamber and headline Wrestlemania the same year his dad would be going into the H.O.F. Orton said he’s the only one at fault, as he’s taught Ted and Cody way too well. He said he hasn’t been a good leader, which is why he asked for a six-man tag tonight. He wanted to prove they were all on the same page. Orton told Cody to tell Ted that he was sorry. Those words did not come out of the Viper easily. As Orton walked away, DiBiase walked up to Rhodes. Rhodes said it went really well…almost too well. Ted asked Cody if he was sticking to the plan. “Absolutely,� responded Cody. The six-man is next.

 

[Commercial Break]

 

(2) Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne & Yoshi Tatsu vs. Randy Orton & Legacy

Tatsu worked in some kicks on DiBiase, then got a few deep arm-drags. Some double-teaming after Bourne tagged in and Bourne registered a two-count. Rhodes tagged in and Bourne kicked away at the legs. Roll-up got one. Rhodes caught Bourne with a back-elbow, but Bourne again landed a forearm. To the top, but Rhodes cut him off. Alabama Slam by Rhodes, obviously having learned something from his first tag partner, Hardcore Holly. Kick out by Bourne on a pin, then they went to break.

 

[Commercial Break]

 

Big clothesline by DiBiase on Bourne for a two-count out of break. Crowd was getting into it after being quiet early. Double-knees by Bourne, but he couldn’t make the tag immediately. Both men were down and Kingston tagged in, landing a chop off the top rope on Teddy. Cole gave the “controlled frenzy� quote that he’s contractually obligated to say in every Kofi match. Orton grabbed a handful of Kingston hair to turn the tables. He then tagged in and bodyslammed Kofi. Speaking of “contractually obligated,� there’s the patented Orton chin-lock. Kingston tried to fight out, but Randy gave the back-breaker as Cody and Ted were whispering to each other in the corner. Orton walked around the ring as the fans chanted for Kofi. Cody tagged himself in and Orton gave him the DDT with Cody’s legs on the ropes. DiBiase screamed at Orton outside the ring and Orton RKO’d DiBiase. Big pop from the crowd on that one. Is that what they are going for, though? Tatsu tagged in and hit a few of his moves, then tagged Bourne for Air Bourne and thw win.

 

Winners: Bourne, Kingston and Tatsu, at 9:50. I think we finally got the official break-up of Legacy. Or maybe not. Match was good and the crowd was into the second half.

 

-Later tonight, a Wrestlemania title opportunity is on the line when John Cena faces Batista.

 

-And Shawn Michaels will explain his actions last night in the Chamber. The big question apparently is will Taker be here to respond? That’s next.

 

[Commercial Break]

 

-We saw a video package showing how the Taker vs. Michaels feud got started this year, all the way back to the Slammys. It was your usual pretty awesome video package. Long, but awesome.

 

-Shawn Michaels came out. He was dressed like Ty Murray. Michaels said he wasn’t going to take up a lot of our time tonight, because his explanation for his actions last night isn’t very complicated. He said he did what he needed to do. Even though what he did wasn’t popular, he said it’s something that he’ll have to live with. He also said he understood there will be a reaction from Undertaker. He said he was counting on one. The bell tolled and the lights went out. He made his full entrance (after the flame towers had gone down) in his Ministry jacket. Taker got a mic and said HBK wanted his attention….now he has it. Shawn said that last year, people said the two of them had the greatest match in Wrestlemania history, or possibly ever. As flattering as that was for Shawn, he wrestled a (nearly) perfect match and made just one mistake. Michaels said he can’t live with that. He said he begged Taker for a re-match, but the Dead Man refused. At this point, the fans started chanting “what.� Michaels said he was left no choice but to cost Taker his World Heavyweight Championship. He said Taker wants revenge, and told him to face him at ‘Mania to get his revenge. “You’re on,� said Undertaker. As Michaels began to walk out, Taker said “…on one condition.� This year, Michaels has to put up something as well. Undertaker demanded it be Shawn’s soul. Taker said if Shawn defeats him, the streak is over. But, if Taker wins, Michaels’ career is over. The crowd was abuzz. Michaels said Taker doesn’t get it. If he can’t beat Taker at ‘Mania, then he has no career. He then accepted. The thing is, the “career on the line� stip has been broken so often, does it have much steam? They can point to Flair I guess, for the casual fans who don’t know about his overseas ventures.

 

-The screen faded to black after the bell tolled, but then they cued up the graphic of Batista vs. Cena, and the announcers talked about it.

 

-Christian has signed with Raw, and he was walking backstage, heading to the ring for the first MITB qualifying match.

 

[Commercial Break]

 

-The MITB briefcase was shown hanging above the ring. Cole and King talked about Taker vs. HBK at ‘Mania this year.

 

(3) Christian vs. Carlito – Money-In-The-Bank Qualifying Match

An inset promo aired from Heath Slater, Christian’s rookie on NXT tomorrow night. He called himself “the one-man rock band� and said he’d blow people’s minds tomorrow night. Carlito ran to the ring and we heard from Michael Tarver, Carlito’s rookie. He said he was the son of a preacher and boxer. He said he’d have you eating through a straw in 1.9 seconds. Once the match began, Carlito took Christian down on the apron and went for a quick pinfall attempt. Carly peppered Christian with lefts, but Christian ran through him with a forearm. Christian stood on Carlito’s back with Carlito’s throat across the ropes, but Christian nearly slipped off. Christian missed a cross-body, but did land a reverse DDT for two. He went for the Killswitch but Carlito countered. He pulled Christian’s feet off the middle ropes and got a swinging neck-breaker for two. Another Killswitch try, but again, couldn’t hook it. He went for a springboard back elbow, but Christian caught him. Carlito was sent shoulder-first into the post and the Killswitch was engaged. Christian qualifies.

 

Winner: Christian, at 3:00. Acceptable match.

 

-More shots of the mechanical bull. The Divas Bull Riding contest is next.

 

[Commercial Break]

 

-Justin Roberts introduced Ty Murray and Jewel. She said she has been having a blast backstage, but like bull riding, wrestling is a macho sport. She said it was time to bring some Divas into things. Murray said he had been working with the Divas backstage and they’re ready to go. Eve was the first one out and damn she looked fine. Are we going to see the return of Santina tonight for this? Eve held on and lasted the full eight seconds. Kelly Kelly was on next. She held on as well. The Bellas followed. Murray suggested they ride double. And they did. Well, at least that saves some time. Boy, this bull is tame. The Bellas lasted the entire time too. Some competition. The Big Show and The Miz came out next, I’m assuming it’s unscheduled. Miz was disgusted and said, “what’s next, a yodeling contest?� Murray said Jewel was pretty good at yodeling, and she showed off a bit. Big Show said anyone can bull ride. Murray bet him that he couldn’t do it, at least, not as good as the women. Big Show went down to the Bull and asked the women to hold his titles. They all refused. “You’re just rude,� he said. Show got on stomach-first and Jewel and Murray made fun of him. They cranked things up for Show and he got taken off quite early. Miz claimed it wasn’t fair and said it was going faster than the Divas. Murray made fun of him for being the only one in bull riding to claim, “that isn’t fair.� Miz told Show not to let the bull get to his head. It was, apparently, taunting Big Show. Show started yelling at the bull. Is he drunk? Show took a swing and punched the bull, but Show fell into the circle anyway. Jewel called it stuffed animal cruelty. Miz said it was just another guest host activity that ended in severe disappointment, just like the Colts in the Super Bowl. Miz wanted to get out of there, but Murray called him back. He said they have to defend their tag titles against MVP and Mark Henry next. The champs walked to the ring for the match.

 

-John Cena vs. Batista is still to come tonight, with Cena’s Wrestlemania title hopes on the line.

 

[Commercial Break]

 

- Next week, we’ll get an update on Bret Hart. But that video popped up in the middle of Cole talking about WWE.com (and that graphic being shown). Cole did not mention the video of Hart.

 

(4) The Miz & The Big Show vs. Mark Henry & MVP- Unified Tag Team Championship Match

Big Show got jumped by MVP as he tagged in. MVP got speared and Show landed a few chops. Henry’s shoulder that he injured last night was wrapped, BTW. He came in and worked over Show, but Miz came off the top and was caught by Henry and given the World’s Strongest Slam. Show was the legal man though, and he caught Henry with a right hand for the pin.

 

Winners: Show and Miz, at 2:48.

 

-Now the video of the Bret Hart update was shown, and it’s next, not next week like a mistakenly wrote.

 

 

[Commercial Break]

 

-Cole and Lawler plugged Jewel’s new CD.

 

-The next Hall-of-Famer for 2010: Wendi Richter. “Rowdy� Roddy Piper will induct her.

 

-Cole updated the health of Bret “Hitman� Hart. His personal physician notes that there is some tendon and ligament damage, along with a broken leg. They showed exactly what happened last week.

 

-Backstage, Vince McMahon was talking to the camera. He said he was reconsidering facing Bret at Wrestlemania and was looking forward to the competition. Then he categorically denied that he had anything to do with Bret’s injury. He invited Bret back next week, to say goodbye the right way. Vince promised him all the perks (ambulance to bring him to the arena, wheelchair to get to the ring, hydraulic lift to get into the ring) to say go out on a more positive note.

 

-Cena was walking backstage. His match is next.

 

[Commercial Break]

 

-Next week, we’ll see the Farewell to Bret Hart, as Lawler confirmed that Hart has accepted Vince’s offer.

 

-Next week’s guest hosts: Cheech and Chong.

 

-Also next week, Randy Orton vs. Ted DiBiase. Nothing like beating a dead horse.

 

(5) John Cena vs. Batista

Batista made his entrance at 11:01pm, so I’m not sure what kind of match we’ll get. Batista took his time during his entrance. The match started one second shy of 11:04. Cena went after Batista in the corner, and Batista cowered between the ropes. Then he kneed Cena square in the balls, to earn a DQ.

 

Winner: Cena, at :26.

 

Batista clapped at himself for his actions and then kicked Cena in the face. Batista continued to clobber Cena in the corner. He started walking up the ramp, but Cena stirred in the ring. Batista got upset and went back, throwing Cena shoulder-first into the ringpost. Cena fell to ringside and was thrown into the barricade next. Then, Batista picked Cena up and rammed him back-first into the ringpost. That’s where the brutality ended. Medics came to ringside to check on Cena’s condition. Cena began to sit up and Batista spotted that. I guess I was wrong, because Batista went back for more. He got a steel chair from ringside as apparently, Cena has no friends in the back. Speaking of “back,� that’s where Batista slammed the chair into Cena. Cena began to shake and somewhat Hulk-Up. He even got to his feet, but Batista laid in another chair shot. To his knees again and another chair to the back. Batista finally began to walk away, and we got a replay of the “match,� and some highlights of the beat-down. Batista raised his arms on the ramp as the show went out.

Has there ever been a person so bad at everything that has to do with wrestling be so unreasonably pushed? I mean, seriously. Am I wrong?

 

His mic work, body language and overall attitude has been pretty awesome since his heel turn.

 

I agree with this.

Yeah, I mean, I'm not a great fan of his in-ring work, but I'm willing to give the devil his due when he does well. Spike, is there anything particular about the way he carries himself as a heel that isn't working for you?

WWE released Hurricane, Burchill, and Maria today. How they never came up with anything for Burchill just perplexes me, especially when someone like Batista get pushed to the moon.
