Show opened up with new World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio. Bit odd seeing someone other than HHH, Vince or Stephanie open the show after the past few weeks. Del Rio called himself Superman which may anger some people cos we already have a Superman in WWE and it aint you. He then talked about how he won the title and how Ziggler did the same to him the night after WrestleMania. I don’t see any connection to these two events but thats what were going with here. He then trashed the fans for cheering for Ziggler when Ziggler cashed in his title shot the night after Mania. He then said America is full of Pigs and Cowards. Nice heel promo here.
CM Punk then came out with Paul Heyman. Punk took offense to Del Rio calling himself the best cos we all know Punk is The Best In The World so Punk challenged him to a match. Heyman butted in saying his clients don’t work for free and Punk looked at Heyman. For those that don’t know Punk and Heyman are just friends and Punk is no client of his. Del Rio turned down Punks challenge. Its clear Punk is turning face as we would see later in the night.
Vickie came out and then basically made the match official.
They announced Orton vs Bryan for later in the show.
Punk told Heyman that he don’t need him to win matches. He said Heyman is no longer welcome at ringside for his matches.
Wade Barrett was meant to face Curtis Axel but Vickie said he would face CHRISTIAN who found his way back to WWE.
Wade Barrett vs Christian: Christian won with the killswitch. Quick little match that establishes Christian after being gone for so long. Barrett continues to be misused.
SHEAMUS LOOSES: Well when this came up I figured the Celtic Warrior would go on his merry way and beat two men at once and Boy was I wrong. Sandow got his win back from the previous night after Sandow got a schoolboy. Sheamus killed them for the entire match though. Oh the benefits of being buddies with Triple H.
#WWEAPP: Stip for Orton/Bryan, NODQ, No Count Out or 2 Out Of 3 Falls.
RVD is returning for One PPV Show In JULY
Vickie and Maddox were asking what Hunter thought of the Main Event. Why would they care what Hunter would think does he need to approve all Main Events now. He loved the idea and then questioned them what the main event would be if Punk didn’t decide to confront Del Rio. She had no response and changed the topic to Christian. Vickie and Maddox tired to take credit for RVD coming back (P.S He Was At The WWE Hall Of Fame) Anyway Triple H told Vickie to cut off the Shield tonight and make a stand. You Never Know Hunter match decide to beat them all 1 after the other. Hunter then joked about how great it was 3MB got booked yeah exactly.
Hell No Is Finally Dead: Kane confronted Bryan. Bryan said he can’t be part of a team and he needs to be part of Team DB. He said he needs the WWE title. Kane said the same. God help us if Kane wrestles for the WWE title in 2013.
WWE App: Orton called Bryan the weak link and blamed them for the loss on the PPV. Well I wish we could blame Orton.
Brayn vs Orton: NO DQ won the poll. They wrestled for awhile. The main story was Bryan never wanted to quit after the beating he took. They stopped the match due to Bryan and his injured ribs. Orton was given the win and Bryan looked depressed and I don’t blame Im sure most of the people who wrestle Orton have that look. Orton went over to Bryan extended his hand and Bryan grabbed. They then hugged and walked out together. The end made no sense.
AJ came out I then proceeded to groan. She said her Ziggy would share the spotlight with her “The Greatest Diva Champion Ever” She then called out any woman who could be compared. Well Stephanie came out. Normally id be relived to see Stephanie McMahon on TV but recently I could care less. Steph called out AJ for degrading women for her actions against Kaitlyn. She agreed and said instead of dating Superstars she’ll just Marry one. OHHHH BURN. Stephanie said no one does crazy like the McMahons. Yeah go back and watch 2000-2003 WWE and relive all the crazy moments. Kaitlyn came out with other women and I could care less about all 6 of them. Steph walked up to Kaitlyn cut off her mic and told her to not interrupt her again. Can we just announce that the McMahons are heels again. After that Kaitlyn walked to the ring she then went on about how AJ humiliated her. Kaitlyn then attacked her until Big E pulled AJ away.
Dean Ambrose vs Kane: DQ finish after the Shield beat up Kane. Even after Hunters advice no one helped Kane.
Mark Henry was backstage in quite the suit. He was with The Prime Time Player and Tamina who still has a job. Darren Young was crying.
Vickie reminded the Shield that shes the boss. Ambrose wondered what she could do to them. Vince came in and greeted the Shield. He told them to keep up the good work.
William Regal vs Antonio Cesaro: I’ll always love seeing Regal on TV. Cesaro was introduced as Zeb Coulters new guy. Maybe this will help out Cesaro. Cesaro beat Regal quick with a sleeper hold ad Neutralizer.
John Cena then came out and did the same bullshit he talks about every week. You Hate Me but I love You. He said hes looking forward to Money In The Bank and awaiting his next challenger. Mark Henrys suit walked out. John went to leave but Henry told him to stay. So Henry went into his “retirement speech” about how hed been successful ( I guess successful is getting injured during ever major push you have had). He said his one regret was never winning the WWE Title. Cena walked up to him and raised his arm only for Henry to slam Cena as the crowd went crazy. Henry took off his jacked screaming hes got more in the tank.
Rene Young asked Henry what happened. He called the people puppets and challenged Cena for the title.
Chris Jericho vs Heath Slater: Chris Jericho won in an epic back and forth match. Nah not really he won quickly with the codebreaker and then beat up 3MB.
Matt Striker asked Heyman his thoughts on Punks comments earlier. Heyman turned the talk to Axel.
Curtis Axel vs Sin Cara: Sin Cara has his stupid lighting back again. Axel won with a body scissor DDT.
Dean Ambrose vs Daniel Bryan is on Smackdown
Vickie and Maddox were confronted by the McMahons. Vince said they were doing a great job. Vince asked what she plans to do about Henry. She then made Henry vs Cena official. Vince approved of this. Stephanie asked why Vickie was allowing the show to get out of hand. At one point she said the show was a disaster which is so much funnier if you hear what goes on during the show. Hunter wondered why Vickie didn’t make an example out of the Shield. So Hunter told Vickie to Listen to Him while Vince said listen to him. Basically they both think they are right to run the show. They both left and Steph said to listen to her. Just turn heel already for fuck sake.
Heyman ran up to Punk before his match and told him he loved him. Well something is going down.
CM Punk vs Alberto Del Rio: Long back and forth match and this one is no joke. Punk hit the GTS but Del Rio got out of the ring. Del Rio walked out meaning Punk won by count out. Dolph ran out and attacked Del Rio and Ricardo. Then BROCK came out as Punk looked at him confused. Brock circled Punk and then took a mic but then gave the F5 to PUNK. Brock smiled as the show ended.
Overall: Great show for setting up futrue stuff. Henry was great in his segment with Cena. Punk/Brock is a shoe in for Summerslam. Bryan is now on his road to the WWE title. And the McMahons look to be on TV for the foreseeable future now.
