this match was Strike 1 for Ace. He then asks who should face Sheamus for the World Title? Ace is about to say who, but Vickie Guerrero comes in and says that she has two former World Championships on the roster in Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler. Vince says that Ace should consider this. Ace asks for Teddy's opinion, which shocks the hell out of Teddy. Teddy then says that there are actually FOUR former World Champions on the roster in The Great Khali, Christian, Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger and a Fatal Four Way with the winner getting the title shot would be a great idea. Ace says that was exactly what he was thinking and makes Teddy go get him some coffee. He puts his fist up for a bump from Vince, and Vince says he has small hands.
Back to RAW, and Tensai is in the ring beating up on Sakamoto. He's got him by the hair, and he's slapping him around a bit. A hard right sends the man down, then Tensai palms the face of homeboy, all the way screaming in Japanese. Tensai sends him to the outside. We're on the outside, and Tensai presses Sakamoto's head against the announce table. Tensai sends him back first into the ring post then back first into the barricade. Some thigh smashes to Sakamoto's head seems like enough, before the refs spill out. Thanks for coming, Tensai.
We're backstage and R-Truth is here with Matt Striker. Striker brings up the attack on him two weeks ago. He says he's fine, diddle dandle, to be exact. He claims that Lil Jimmy was more traumatized than anyone else. He tells Lil Jimmy not to be sensative. Jimmy straightens up. Truth says that the truth is, this Sunday...The Big Show is going to lose to John Cena. When Cena steps inside the steel cage, Show is going to find out the----
Big Show's right hand enters the screen and knocks out Truth. haha. That probably shouldn't have been as funny as I thought it was.
We get a recap of Santino's match with Ricardo from three weeks ago. Apparently, this match was made by Johnny Ace, and before it even begins, I can see this as a fail of sorts...
Match 2: Santino Marella and Layla vs. Ricardo Rodriguez and Beth Pheonix
Ricardo acts as if he doesn't want this match at all. We're starting with the ladies. Go behind by Layla into a side headlock. Beth looks for a backsuplex but Layla uses her momentum to stop it. Ricardo calls for a tag, but Layla kicks his hand. He comes inside just for Layla to use him to spring foreward, but Beth is able to drop her down and pin for 1....2..NO! Beth sets up for a suplex. Ricardo tags himself in. Beth hits the suplex. Ricardo realizes that if he is in the ring, Santino is as well, so he tags himself out again. Beth yells at him to stay outt of the ring. Layla hits a cross body from the second rope into a pin for 2. Faceplant from the champ, then Beth whips her to the ropes. Ricardo is in the ring for no reason, just as Layla hits a hurricanrana/side headlock takedown combo, sending Ricardo to the outside. Santino pulls out the cobra and hits it on the outside while Beth deflects a boot, kicks Layla's leg on the rope, then hits the GLam Slam and pins for 1...2...3!
Winners: Ricardo Rodriguez and Beth Phoenix (*)
The comedy aspect of the match made this all quite sloppy.
After the match, Ricardo Rodriguez cheers happily, rubbing it into the face of Santino. Santino grabs his shirt and rips it off, exposing a purple Justin Beiber shirt underneath it all. That joke isn't two years too late or anything.
Backstage, David Otunga is kissing the ass of Vince. He wants McMahon to know that in his opinion, Ace is doing a great job. But, if he were to be fired, Otunga cannot think of a better replacement than a Harvard educated lawyer with a physique similar to Vince's. Vince says he likes the way he puckers up, but he doesn't like lawyers. lol. In comes Kofi and he's looking for Ace. He wants Big Show, and he wants him tonight. Ace walks in and says fine, if he wants it, he's got it. Tonight, Kofi vs Show in a Steel Cage.
The music of Daniel Bryan hits, and out comes the man who took a three letter word and made it AWESOME! Bryan's got the mic. Daniel Bryan, CM Punk and Kane. Clearly, one of these superstars is not like the others. Haha. Bryan says that he is nothing like CM Punk and Kane. CM Punk and Kane both have a weakness. A weakness in the form of a 95 pound distraction named AJ.
In Punk's case, it's all about jealousy. Bryan proved that he is a superior wrestler when he made him tap, and now he's trying to make Bryan jealous by getting with AJ. Kane...well, Kane thinks it's getting to second base when a woman looks him in the eyes and doesn't vomit. Both Punk and Kane are obsessed with a women who is still in love with Bryan. Bryan then, hilariously says, "Once you go Bryan, there's no point in tryin." Oh yeaaaah. Bryan says he is not interested in AJ, though. What he is interested in is the WWE Title. This week, Q&A session will be very short. This Sunday, will he be the new WWE Champion? YES! YES! YES!
Here's Punk! He brings up the fact that Bryan talks about AJ an awful lot. The thing about AJ is that she's actually pretty cool, and they have one thing in common. Outside the ring, she is waaaaay out of Bryan's league. Inside the ring, Bryan's not even close to being in Punk's league. The other thing is that she is sort of crazy....and Punk happens to dig crazy chicks. There's only one thing he digs more...his WWE Title. Over the past few months, they've traded wins and Kane has beat them both. But either way, Punk is walking out WWE Champion. Bryan then says No! No! No!, assuring a Yes! chant. Bryan wants to know what happened to Punk. Bryan used to respect him but he has changed. He calls Punk the voice of the voiceless, yet panders to everyone. There's a reason why all of these people are voiceless; they have nothing intelligent to say. These people love to yell at Big Show about selling out, but the biggest sell out in this entire company iss... (Continues on next page)
