– We kick Raw off with the introduction of WWE Champion The Miz. Micheal Cole is not at ringside with Punk and Lawler. Miz cuts a promo and keeps saying he is still the champion over and over again. Alex Riley comes out dressed as the Ghost of Christmas past from a Christmas Carol. He shows footage of Miz beating Lawler on Raw a few weeks ago. Miz says he is proud of that and doesn’t regret anything he has done in the past. Cole comes out next dressed as the Ghost of Christmas Present. He says Miz’s actions from last night were “Vintage” but also wrong. Lawler says Charles Dickens is turning over in his grave. A photo shopped picture of the angry Miz girl appears on the big screen with a moving mouth. She says she is the Ghost of Christmas Future and says Miz needs to change his ways or John Morrison will beat him. Miz then says is usual shtick and John Morrison comes out. Morrison says that was really stupid even for Miz. He says he has beat Miz in the past, present and knows he can in the future and he will be the new WWE Champion. Sheamus is out and attacks Morrison. Miz and Riley bail and Lawler nails Alex Riley. Cole yells at Lawler for his actions. The Mystery GM chimes in and announces a six man tag for later tonight featuring Miz, Alex Riley and Sheamus vs John Morrison, Jerry Lawler and Randy Orton. Orton then attacks Miz on the ramp

He shows different camera angles of the footage from last night of him dropping the chairs on Wade Barrett. Vickie Guerrero is out with Dolph Ziggler. The crowd is booing Vickie so much that Cena can’t understand what she is saying. Every time she goes to speak they boo louder and louder. This is pretty great. Vickie wants Lawler to say he is sorry for making fun of her last week. She says if he doesn’t Ziggler will beat him up. Lawler says he can’t help it that she is the only Diva who’s bathtub has stretch marks. Cena and Lawler trade fat jokes back and forth about Vickie. Vickie has had enough and slaps Cena in the face. The Raw GM chimes in and makes a match for right now between Cena and Ziggler.

(4) John Cena vs Dolph Ziggler. This is a really good match. The crowd is red hot for this. Man this is one heck of a TV match. Ziggler taps out to the STF but Vickie has the referee distracted. Ziggler try’s to hit Cena with the IC Title but Cena ducks and hits the AA for the win. That was good. CM Punk comes in the ring after the match and nails Cena with a chair and leaves.

    its about time they put daniel bryan against regal

  2. J-Rip says:

    That Cena match was surprisingly good; maybe they need too have him feud with more mat based wrestlers.

  3. Jon says:

    Cena vs Punk?????? Awesome!!! Hope WWE doesn’t screw this up by making Punk look weak.

  4. Agent Cooper says:

    This show sucked simply because it was the end of CM Punk’s stint as an announcer. They need to find a way to clone him so that he can play both announcer and wrestler. Having to listen to the mind-numbingly stale Cole and Lawler again will not be fun.

  5. Roger Roger says:

    That segment with Cena, Lawler, and Piggy.. I mean Vicki, had to be one of the funniest segment I’d seen on Raw this year. I ranks up there with the Santino/Kozlov/Shaemus Tea-Time Segment.

  6. DJ Reign says:

    Very interesting Raw…. What the deal with Punk? Must have personal issues with Cena? Maybe Punk is the mastermind behind the Nexus? Once again why does A-Ri still have a briefcase? maybe it has the rumored new wwe title?

  7. N. Gaijin says:

    Great show.

    Loved the opening segment, it was very funny. I think Punk had it dead-on.

    I marked out big for the Bryan/Regal match – a fanboy’s dream come true. I think The Bellas are dead weight, though. I guess they think having them around adds charisma points to his already well-balanced stats, or it just gives them something to do other than occupy space on the roster.

    Thank god for the Melina turn. Nice to finally see a heel diva who can actually WRESTLE challenge for the title.

    The Ziggler/Cena match was surprisingly good. It was very entertaining.

    I don’t know if people remember, but having Punk attack Cena post-Nexus feud is an interesting bookend because it was their match together that saw the “NXT Riot”. The build to this happening has been very subtle, and done well enough to come off as surprise without feeling out of left field. I agree with Jon, I really hope Punk doesn’t come off looking weak in this feud – hitting Cena with a chair only for him to get up a couple minutes later with his “intense” face on doesn’t look like a good start though :/.
