11/26 WWE Raw Recap
Nov 26, 2012 - by Brian Jaso
We open up Raw with Ryback coming to the ring.
Ryback vs Titus Oneal
This is feed me more match for Ryback. Titus Oneal has done a great job on comentary that past few weeks. After about 3 minutes Oneal hits a big spine buster, but only gets a one count. Ryback quickly switches the momentum and hits the Shell Shock for the win.
After the match Ryback gets on the mic, look out, and tells the crowd he wants Punk and the 3 outsiders in black tonight. And he is not going to take no for an answer!
We come back from break with Ryback in the ring still waiting for Punk. 5 members of security are now in the ring waiting trying to get Ryback out of the ring. One of them attacks him and Ryback tosses him over the ropes. He lands very badly on his right knee. Out comes Vicki Guerrero and she tells Ryback he needs to leave the ring. Ryback tells her to shut up. He says he wants Punk. Vicki says if he leaves the ring she will give him his rematch ant TLC. He says he also wants it to be a TLC match. She agrees so we now have our Main Event for the TLC pay-per-view. Ryback vs Punk in an TLC match!!!
Backstage We see Rosa Mendez yelling at Hornswaggle for spraying her with water last week. Alberto Del Rio walks up and starts to give Hornswaggle trouble. Right in the middle of it The Great Khali walks up and tells Del Rio to back off. We have our next match.
The Great Khali vs. Alberto Del Rio
Del Rio and Khali actually work a decent match. Khali is looking pretty rough, but he is giving it so hard to Del Rio now. He sets him up for his finisher, but Rodriguez jumps up on the apron to distract the ref. Del Rio takes advantage of it and locks on the arm breaker for the submission.
Winner-Alberto Del Rio
Backstage Vicki is approached by Paul Heyman and CM Punk. Punk wants to know why he has to face Ryback again after beating him in the last two pay-per-views. Valid point. She tells him to bad. He is not only wrestling at TLC, but tonight he has a match. He will face whomever the WWE universe picks tonight in the WWE survey. Daniel Bryan or Kane!!
After the break we get our first interview with Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns.
Cole sits down with the three invaders. He starts to ask some questions but Ambrose cuts him off quickly and tells him to not beat around the bush, ask the questions he wants too. So he asks them if they are working for CM Punk. Ambrose says “Nope”. Rollins says they are here to stop what is wrong with wrestling. To fix the un fair. to shield people from the unjust. Reigns says he will speak when he has something to say. Ambrose tells Cole that they would have helped Ryback or Cena if they felt they were being treated unfairly, but it was Punk who was. Ambrose says they are the Shield. Regins then says he has something to say. They have said enough. This interview is over.
After the Break we go back to the ring….
Alica Fox vs. Tamina Snuka
Tamina is getting quite a push here going into her feud with AJ. She makes quick work of Fox hitting her father’s Big Splash from the top rope for the win.
After the Break John Cena hits the ring ready to talk about last week with AJ. He says he has never been asked about anything more than how was it kissing AJ. He says he never kisses and tells but……..out comes Vicki Guerrero. Vicki has a gift for Cena, matching his and her robes for him and AJ. Vicki laughs and laughs, until we get AJ. Out skips AJ to tell Vicki that now that she is Raw GM anymore, she can do anything she wants. So she slaps Cena on the ass. Very Funny. She then tells Vicki without the power of GM, Vicki could never land a man. Out comes The Showoff, Dolph Ziggler. Dolph tells Cena the reason he was so mad on Smackdown is because he knew that when AJ was kissing Cena she was thinking about Dolph. Cena tells Dolph he is going to shove that briefcase down his throat. but Vicki stops him and says tonight they will face off.. Cena vs. Ziggler.
After the break we have Wade Barrett at the announce table ready for the next match.
Kofi Kingston vs. Tensai
Barrett is looking very thin, not sure what’s up with him. Barrett is wrestling Kofi for the Intercontinetal Title at TLC, so he is here scouting. Tensai is really controling this one. Lots of power moves that Kofi is bouncing back from one after another. Kofi gets tossed out of the ring, and when Tensai reaches to get him he catches a trouble in paradise. Kofi follows with a high cross body from the top rope.
Backstage we have Daniel Bryan and Kane arguing about who is more popular. Bryan brings up a map showing the world is voting for him. He tells Kane it’s too bad they are not voting in Hell. Kane says maybe he will send him there to check. Josh Mathews walks out and has the results. It is Kane!!! But Bryan has a match, against Rey Mysterio!!! Next!!!
Rey Mystero vs Daniel Bryan
This is the first time these two have ever wrestled each other. They take to the outside early and Rey misses badly. He works it hard with his knee, and hopefully it is only show. Back in the ring Bryan takes control and flings the little man around move by move. Rey changes the patterns his way and sends Bryan out the ring. He is hot and angry. Back in the ring Bryan puts Rey in the Tree of woe and hits a running drop kick. He follows it up with some European uppercut that sends Rey out of the ring. After some backand forth action Rey takes it too the top rope and hits a flying head scissors. Rey then sets him up for the 619 which he misses and Bryan trys to lock on the labelle lock, but Rey gets to the ring. Rey hits the sling shot, followed by the 619, into the splash from the top rope for the win.
John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler
This will probably be at the next Pay-per-view, but we get it for free here tonight. They feel each other out here in the early going. But quickly Ziggler takes advantage and begins to put on a show. After working him over out of the ring and lays him out in it. Then using his body and leverage he does some situps for good measure. Ziggler continues to play to the crowd and dance and prances around like his is in a parade. But after some quick work Cena slips on the STF. Ziggler is in the middle of the ring, but some how works out of it, and lands a killer dropkick. He then goes to the top rope and hits a high cross body, but over rotates and Cena picks him up into an attitude adjustment. Ziggler half blocks and hits the zig zag. But only for the 2 count. Cena hits the you can’t see me, but his knee gives out and he steps out of the ring. He is being looked at by the ringside doctor, in the mean time AJ comes out and distracts Ziggler. Ziggler grabs the briefcase and a swing and miss on Cena. Attitude adjustment for the win.
After the match AJ and Cena celebrate with a make out session in the ring.
Next we have a big one….
Sheamus vs United States Champion Antonio Cesaro
Cesaro is out first and really is making Sheamus work. Cesaro is hitting hard with upper cuts and punches that Sheamus is giving back two fold. Pretty rough stuff. In the end it is Sheamus breaking out of Cesaro’s finisher and hitting the brouge kick to send Cesaro out of the ring. He is counted out as Big Show walk down the ramp with a chair. He punches the chair into pieces. What’s to come…..
Winner-via count out Sheamus
Damien Sandow vs Zach Ryder
Damien is getting quite a push here and Ryder is heading in the other direction. Sandow is overshadowing Ryder with his technique. But Ryder is still over with the crowd. They want him in the winner’s circle so bad, but not tonight Zach. Sandow hits his finisher.
We are now into the Main Event of the night
WWE Champion CM Punk vs Kane
This is the match the WWE universe wanted (wink wink). They start out with some ground and pound to help Kane out. He is moving around better than normal. Punk quickly takes an upperhand though with the guidence of Heyman. Reaching deep in his bag of tricks he takes Kane out of his game. Kane then works him back out of the ring and sets him up for the end. He gets him in the ring and gets ready for the tombstone. But out in the crowd we see the Shield working their way down to the ring. It gives Punk just enough a distraction to sneek in a GTS for the win.
Winner-WWE Champion CM Punk
After the match the Shield climb in the ring and look over Punk. Punk brings his fists to a fighting stance, but the Shield jump Kane. Punk slides out and the Shield continue to beat Kane. Out comes Daniel Bryan to save his partner. The waste him in no time. Then we hear the crowd chanting Feed Me More! Feed Me More! And sure enough here he comes. Ryback hits the ring and levels the Shield. But Punk attacks and the Shield takes advantage. The Power Bomb Ryback for the third show in a row. We are left of the image of a destroyed Ryback, The Shield Standing tall in the ring, and Punk at ringside looking on confused. Maybe.
