John Cena comes out to open raw, he talks about wrestlemania 29 & that his time is now. Prime Time players comes out with Titus O’Neal wearing a Afro then Cena makes fun of them. Darren Young Challenges Cena to a match.
John Cena Def Darren Young
AR’s Truth: A decent promo by cena but when Prime Time Players comes out then it all goes down from there. The crowd & I Didn’t Like it at all. Job Match 1-5*
Ryback Def David Otunga
After the match ryback says on his way to wrestlemania he & Mark Henry paths will cross. Mark Henry comes out but Teddy Long & Vickie Guerrero as well. Long says don’t go to the ring then Vickie says she is taking Ryback out of the 6 man tag match because he will be facing Henry at mania. Ryback hits the Shell shock on Otunga to make his statement.
AR’s Truth: A Jobber match with Ryback in full control. As far as the match with henry it’s no surprise as we have been reporting it for a while now on the site. Job match 1-5*
R Truth Def Damien Sandow Via Count Out
We see Cody Rhodes with the Bella Twins talking about his Mustache but Kaitlin says they have to cancel there plans but then Bella’s says he isn’t interested.
AR’s Truth: A ok With Sandow getting the majority of the offense then a comeback by Truth. The walk out doesn’t hurt him that match & makes Truth look good as well. Makes sense.
Ok match 2-5*
The Undertaker comes out, He tells Punk that if he doesn’t give back the Urn then he is going to hurt Punk really bad. Punk tries to do the Paul Bearer voice saying My Undertaker. He says the undertaker is the best at wrestlemania but Punk is the best 365 days a year. He drops the Urn & says no Disrespect.
AR’s Truth: A good straight point promo by taker. Punk promo was also to the point. Him dropping the urn I think was planned but him saying Oh Shit! On live air not for sure. I didn’t like how they just had Taker standing in the ring & do nothing or say nothing.
Team Hell No Def Primo & Epico
AR’s Truth: A decent match with AJ looking somehow back into the Kane – Bryan mix. Makes no sense & they have done what they can do with that story.
Y2J does a promo about making a moment at WrestleMania but Fandango interrupts him by saying Fandango! Jericho makes fun of it but Fandango says he will pay for it.
Alberto Del Rio Def Cody Rhodes
After the match Jack Swagger attacks ADR & Ricardo. ADR fights back but Swagger ends up laying him out.
AR’s Truth: A actual good back & forth action match. Still I have no idea where there going with Sandow & Rhodes. They are meant for a tag team & so do it again WWE. Good match 3-5*
They announce Booker T to be the next member in the WWE Hall Of Fame.
Randy Orton & Sheamus Def 3MB
After the match the shield hits the ring but Big show comes down & points to the sign which indicates his the 3rd man against the shield at wrestlemania.
AR’s Truth: The match was what it was & setup a match for mania.
Dolp Ziggler Def Kofi Kingston
After the match Team Hell No comes out & says finally there on the same page. They challenge them to a match but AJ says they will accept if the titles are on the line at Wrestlemania 29.
AR’s Truth: A decent match but the crowd is completely dead. The match for mania is just a match. It looks like it will be a run for Ziggler & Langston with the tag team titles. Yes I now that he should be world champion. Decent match 2.5-5*
Triple Threat Intercontinental Title Match: Wade Barrett © Def Chris Jericho, The Miz
AR’s Truth: A hell of a match & main event. Wade pulling one out of his hat to win & gives him heat. Lots of near falls & you never knew who was going to win. That could have been a hell of a match at wrestlemania. It helped save this episode of raw. Really good match 4-5*
Contract Signing time! HHH comes out, then Paul Heyman comes out with Security. HHH says he thought lesnar would be out here for this. Heyman says Lesnar is not afraid of HHH. Heyman says HHH doesn’t know what he wants to do. HHH makes fun of the security guys. HHH says he wants to sign it but heyman shows the footage of the brawl from 3 weeks ago. Heyman names off 2 different matches. Lesnar said that Paul can pick the match & its – the winner of the match would get Stephanie which is not it & HHH attacks Heyman & the security guards. He chokes Heyman then signs the contract. He throws heyman out of the ring then here comes Brock Lesnar with a chair. HHH grabs a Sledgehammer but Lesnar backs off. Heyman grabs a microphone & announces the match & it is A no Holds barred match with HHH career on the line. So if Lesnar wins the HHH career is over. End of raw.
AR’s Truth: A decent contract signing with a match type most expected. The added was HHH career is on the line. This almost is a 100% sign HHH will win the match. As far as the overall show goes it was a up & down raw that flew by. The punk – taker stuff was good but wasn’t something that stood out. The first hour was flat & nothing to progress on the WWE title match. No rock which hurts but he is promoting his new movie. It makes this match not feel as important which is a shame. Yes it’s a rematch but they did put on a good match last year.
