Before we continue the show, we have a recap of Triple H's speech at No Way Out, specifically, his request for Brock Lesnar and he fighting. This moves on to Paul Heyman telling Trips no, and goading him into hitting him. This is all ended with us learning that Brock will have an official answer to Triple H's challenge next week.
Backstage, yet again, AJ is here wanteing to talk to someone. It's Kane. He says that he'll be the first to admit that he's not one with his feelings, but AJ makes him feel things he's never felt possible. It's not a good thing, says Kane. He's not exactly boyfriend material. AJ says that's ok. Kane says he doesn't do relationships. Besides, he's a monster....he wears a mask. His only source of pleasure is fuckin shit up, and even he finds her...mentally unstable. haha. Kane says it's best, for her own good, if they just stayed away from each other. He says goodbye, and AJ is left lookin like "No he di-int." Then she begins to cry, although it turns into a laugh quickly thereafter....I want to marry her, twice.
Back to the show, and Swagger gets the jobber interest. This match is for the United States Title.
Match 3: United States Championship Match:
Jack Swagger vs. Santino
Swagger tells Santino to stop, feins a handshake, then gives Santino a hard right. He bashes on him in the corner for a bit, then stops and goes at it again. Swagger swags, so Santino reverses and hits some rights of his own. Santino goes to the corner, Swagger runs, Santino hops over. He pulls the Cobra out, but Swagger runs, and back kicks him. Takedown from Swagger into a pin for 2. Swagger with a leg drop. Knee to the back from behind, with some chickenwings bein pulled as well. Santino fights out of it and Swagger gets a side headlock. Santino with a Saito Suplex. Swagger is up and kicks Santino down, he kips himself up. Hits the splits, ducking a clothersline. Arm drag. headbutt. Santino pull out the cobra. Swagger is up. He lifts Santino, and Santino falls into a DDT. Cobra! He hits it. 1....2...3!!
Winner:Santino Marella (**)
It looks like they're giving Swagger the Loser treatment, but I do like that they gave Santino some new and legit offense. It's a shame we still can't take her seriously.
John Cena is in the back.. We see a box of shirts that is labelled "Free to a Good Home." The shirts have People Power on em. Cena picks one up, Ryder comes up and tosses the shirt into the trash. Well that's not charitable at all...
We're back to the show, and the music of one John Cena brings the crowd to some happy cheers. Cena is in the ring with a mic. Earlier today, he sent a Tweet out that said he had a huge announcement. He claims that recently, RAW has been like a rotten episode of Star Wars. A Short time ago, the evil emporer, Johnny Ace hired Jedi Show-Vader. He compares Vince to Yoda, Jabba to Brodus, Zack Ryder as a Wookie, and then some. He makes fun of Show's breathing habits, calls the cage the Death Star, and says that old Yoda-Vince said to the evil emperor, "No Chance in Hell, Have You." That was both hit and miss. Mostly miss. Anyways, he is about to get to his announcement when....the lights go out!
BREAK THE WALLS DONW!!!!!!
Here's Jericho! They show a quick recap of he and Fozzy performing in the UK. Does this equate to them being on the show? Jericho wants to know what Cena is talking about. Instead of wasting time, make the damned announcement then shut the hell up, get out of his ring, because this is Jericho's night tonight! Cena wants to give Jericho his due, and welcomes Jericho back. Cena admits he may have gotten carried away, but since Jericho has been gone, stuff as happened. Big Show is on a tear, and has even joined the Money in the Bank ladder match and grab the belt. The historic announcement is that in order to stop Big Show, John Cena is putting himself in the Money in the Bank ladder match.
Jericho questions this, but Cena cuts him off and brings up that anyone who catches the suitcase is essentially the champ. It's been about a year since Cena has held the belt, and he's not just out to stop Show. AT MITB, he's going to win the whole "fudging" thing. Jericho calls him 9. Cena says that most of the viewers are around that age. Jericho claims that his arrogance and ignorance never siezes to amaze him. How dare Cena think he can win his very first MITB match just because he's John Cena. Jericho says he has both survived and invented the MITB ladder match. he's been in 3, and Cena brings up that he's won none. Jericho calls Cena so smug, brings up his jokes and laughing. Jericho says the MITB match is not a joke. It's not something you try out for fun. If Cena wants fun, do another Star Wars promo...cuz that was fun (Sarcasmtron). Jericho says there's no one that has been in more ladder matches than Jericho. This is a career ender. Instead of worrying about stopping Show, maybe Cena needs to worry about stopping Jericho. Because as of right now, Jericho is entering himself into the MITB match as well.
Here's Vickie. She says that there will be 2 MITB matches. One for the WWE Champion and World Champion contract. She says that no one can just enter themselves. Jericho talks, and Vickie cuts him off. Nice. haha. Jericho then says, what are you going to do, "suspend me?" Vickie says that instead, she has a creative concept. Only former champions can participate. They are, Kane, The Big Show, Chris Jericho, John Cena. Cena calls this a great idea, then says she's not so bad as GM. Just take orders from the board, and don't make any decisions of her own. She tells Cena that she can't determine the matches, but this is her show tonight, and she will make the main event. Tonight, it will be John Cena vs. Chris Jericho.
So, if I understand this correctly, the WWE Championship MITB contract will be a 4-man ladder match?
Cole brings up Vader, and mentions that each week... (Continues on next page)
