03-18-13 WWE RAW



Mostly filler, some buildup for Mania and a contract signing that goes overtime.

-Recap of Brock beating on Hunter’s buddies and this mysterious stip for the match between HHH and Brock. Also, CM Punk’s interruption to The Undertaker’s tribute to Paul Bearer and stealing the urn.


-John Cena (who thankfully wasn’t on the show last week) starts off this fucking show with a new t-shirt color… yellow… he’s got a ghetto accent tonight… mixed bag reaction for this guy. He goes through the same old song and dance about WrestleMania, 2012 and The Rock. He gets interrupted by none other than… the Primetime Players…? Titus is doing some sort of stupid shtick… stupid, I’m not even going to talk about it. That dumb. Loooong story short this turns into a match.


John Cena vs. Darren Young w/Titus and his afro…?

-this one lasted through a commercial break but not much longer.

Winner: Cena

-Cole recaps Ryback vs. Henry from Friday when The Shield attacked Ryback. This then cuts to Ryback doing the walk in the back.


Ryback vs. David Otunga

-oh hey Otunga gets a RAW match because of the WWE movie The Call he’s in…  two squashes in a row.

Winner: Ryback

-he cuts a promo after the match about WrestleMania but after that Mark Henry comes out. He’s stopped by Teddy Long and Vicki Guerrero. Vicki is taking Ryback out of his Mania match and putting him in one with Henry. That got a loud feed me more chant.


-contract signing for HHH and Brock is apparently tonight.


Fandango w/dancer vs. Great Khali w/Natalya

-Looks like Fandango’s wrestling tonight and he’s got a fancy entrance. They recap Smackdown where this match didn’t happen the first time. Natalya and Fandango have words before he walks off, he’s brushing them off when a “you can’t wrestle” chant breaks out. At least he’s getting SOME reaction…!?

Winner: no contest


R-Truth vs. Damien Sandow

-not sure what was up with Truth’s outfit tonight, why with gold chains painted. They cut promos on each other before the match, it’s nothing that is going to change the face of the first hour of this show. Sandow walks off during the match…

Winner: Truth by DQ


-The Bella’s with Cody in the back when Kaitlyn walks up to cause trouble.


-recap of the end of RAW last week which leads to The Undertaker comes out. He now gets his own graphic for his name, no sign of RAW or WWE on it and its smokes and disappears. Taker took shit from last week personal and wants the urn back. Punk’s voice is heard doing a Paul Bearer impression. Punk is shown on the tron talking to the urn making it sound like Bearer’s ashes are in it. Punk treats this urn like a hot potato. Punk cuts a promo on beating the streak before saying OH SHIT (yes it got beeped out) and dropping the urn. Taker doesn’t look happy… and that’s how it ends… first it looks like the announcers are quiet to put this over when they cut to a HHH vs. Brock promo shot while Hunter’s music plays… dumb.


Primo & Epico w/Rosa vs. WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No

-story of the match is that Kane is having a hard time holding back his rage since last week… during the match AJ Lee comes out to skip around the ring. it doesn’t matter they champions still win.

Winner: THN


-Josh in the back with Jericho talking about holding the I-C title the most times before Fandago interrupts him to say his name… Jericho makes fun of his name, fun shit. Fan Django unchained. Haha! Fandango walks off and Jericho wants his movie tickets! HAAA!


-Alicia Fox and Natalya go to Africa. They brought nets for all.


World Champion Alberto Del Rio w/Ricardo Rodriguez vs. Cody Rhodes

-Del Rio’s music has been mixed… match started off slow but picked up. This match got a USA chant in the middle…? Del Rio finally gets the arm breaker. After the match Swagger attacks Del Rio. This turns into a brawl at ringside after Rodriguez was sent to the outside. Alberto gets his hands on Zeb but that doesn’t last long. They are really trying to save this match. the crowd chants USA while Swagger looks on at the WrestleMania sign. Apparently he’s not done as he attacks Ricardo and puts on the ankle lock which double R sells big time. Kid wins an Oscar for this performance!

Winner: Del Rio


-they are adding ONE more name to the Hall of Fame this year!?!?…  IT’S BOOKER T! Good shit but they could have saved this one since this HOF was already stacked.


Randy Orton & Sheamus vs. Heath Slater & Drew McIntyre w/Jinder Mahal

-squash match that the crowd was into for some reason.

Winner: Orton & Sheamus

-after the match the Shield make their entrance from the crowd and surround the ring. Big Show them runs out and joins Sheamus and Orton in the ring. Shield say fuck this noise and leave through the crowd. Big Show them pointed at the WrestleMania sign before bouncing on his own.


-Cole and Lawler put over The Rock’s new movie, G.I. Joe.


Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler w/AJ & Big E Langston

-match was pretty good but its hard to get into these two wrestling when neither one of them has any direction at the moment. Langston got a stiff clothesline on Kofi who was coming off the apron which set up for the zig zag.

Winner: Ziggler

-after the match Team Hell No come out to the stage and to challenge Ziggler and Big E. AJ accepts but only if its for the tag titles at Mania. Bryan goes into a YES chant.


-Cena vs. Rock video piece.


Triple Threat Match for the Intercontinental Title

Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett vs. The Miz vs. Chris Jericho

-good main event, not great but pretty good. typical triple threat spots. Barrett steals with one with a Miz roll up.

Winner: Barrett


Contract Signing

Brock Lesnar w/Paul Heyman & Triple H

-Paul comes out with security guards and a big smile on his face for this signing, no Brock. He reminds us of the 2 choices Hunter has, take the match with a mysterious stip or no match. Brock has signed the contract already. Paul is stretching this out and is now cuts to the footage from 3 weeks ago when HHH and Brock brawl. Paul teases what the stip is until he announces the winner gets Stephanie… This sets off Brock who then attacks Paul and his security… dude isn’t protecting anyone… Triple H then bullies Heyman on top of the table ripping his clothes and punching him. this goof then signs the contract on Paul before shoving him out of the ring. stupid stipulation if that is it…


-Brock finally comes out with a steel chair in hand… Hunter has his sledgehammer and they both stare at each other until Brock smiles and walks off.


-we’re going long… Heyman says the official stipulation is… Brock vs. HHH in a no count out, no DQ, no holds barred… oh and Triple H’s career is on the line…


oh and i signed up for Twitter tonight… @MascaraDeFuego! 😉

    A J and Langston should be barred from being near the ring. Punk should be forced to give the urn back to the Undertaker or lose his place at Wrestle Mania. I hope HHH has his friends ready to help him against the creep and Heyman.

  2. Estell Newton Says:

    Swagger should be barred from Wrestle Mania because of his interference in Del Rio’s match. There is NO excuse for him breaking Rodriguez’s ankle. He only did it because of his hatred toward Mexicans. How is that being an American?
