this was no go-home show… this was the soap opera on AJ Lee’s life…
Let us know in the comment section!
From John Cena’s Twitter accout:
“I have just been ‘future endeavored’. Well..if that’s how it is I would like to take a moment to publicly apologize to Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson. In an effort to make WM28 as big as possible I tried to expose rock for his flaws. Very childish and immature on my behalf. My comments about the rocks absence were both unprofessional and childish. I am sorry. Rock, I truly wish and still hope in my heart of Hearts that the crazy old man who is the boss reconsiders his totally rash decision. Because chicago was insane last night And it made me think.of what Miami could have been. I guess sometimes u do not know what u have until it is lost. CeNation. I very rarely ask u for anything but I am down to my last chance. If u could tweet WWE to let them know not to fire me I would be indebted to u all. Im not saying its gonna work but sometimes they can not ignore the universe.”
I can’t believe they are actually going to try this “fired” angle again. Lets see how long this one lasts…

On the day of one of the biggest WWE pay per views in recent history, Chavo Guerrero tweeted an insightful and poignant plea to John Cena to bring his A game and to not be lazy in his match with CM Punk tonight. You can read the letter in its entirety after the jump. Here’s a juicy excerpt from Chavo’s message to John Cena:
Eddie & I taught u different..We never said “get lazy” & do the same thing every night. We always said” think out of the box” & give the fans what they deserve & not rely On the “machine”to ” get u over”. I hope this lights a fire under your ass & U deliver this Sunday.

Nice tribute to Macho Man Randy Savage at the beginning of the broadcast.
R-Truth pins Rey Mysterio
Truth comes out to NO music whatsoever.
Truth cuts a promo on Seattle, Rey, Little Jimmy and toy masks. Lovely.
Rey with a sick rana off the apron.
Truth hits the mic check after working over Rey on the outside.
Great Puma: Great match. Very gritty and both men made each other look solid. Glad Truth is on the up and up.
Mascara De Fuego: Good opener I think they finally showed that they mean business with Truth. I think this got him over in a big way.
The Miz cuts a promo in the back. He’s going to make Cena quit. He’s going to prove the naysayers wrong.
United States Title Match
Ezekial Jackson defeats Wade Barrett via DQ
Ezekial clamps on the Torture Rack and out comes the Corre.
Great Puma: Decent match with a predictable ending. Ezekial looked strong.
Mascara De Fuego: I was bored but I guess they got over Jackson as a power house. I don’t like the multiple body slams from Jackson as a “signature move”.
Hilarious backstage segment with CM Punk,
Batista Mason Ryan and the New Nexus.
Otunga and McGillicutty are layed out via Kane and Big Show and Punk tells them to “walk it off.”
Sin Cara pins Chavo Guerrero
Sin Cara pulls off a flying headscissors out of nowhere to catch Chavo.
Mascara De Fuego: I don’t know felt slow and sloppy like they didn’t go over this shit before the match. I don’t think this match got off the ground. Too bad.
Great Puma: Not a good match from a ring work standpoint. Lot’s of sloppy offense that Chavo tried his best to embellish.
Christian and Randy Orton have an interview together backstage.
- Christian says he’s not bitter and he’s going to win his title back.
- Orton gives Christian respect but he’s going to beat Christian again.
Alberto Del Rio comes out to the ring.
- He talks about sneaky Canadiens crossing the border, coffee houses and his destiny.
- He says he could make Cena and the Miz quit with his Cross Arm Breaker.
Big Show & Kane come out.
Kane says he’s disappointed that the rapture didn’t come yesterday. Awesome!
They intimidate ADR out of the ring.
Big Show & Kane defeat The New Nexus (CM Punk & Mason Ryan)
- Punk is taking a beating but manages to do a little homage to the Macho Man.
- Double Chokeslam on Ryan for the win.
Great Puma: Okay match. Ryan dominated during his time in the ring while Punk barely survived when he was tagged in. I wished they pulled the trigger on turning Ryan against the New Nexus.
Mascara De Fuego: Take CM Punk out of this match and it would have been a horrible match. Punk says what he can in this one. Good Macho Man tribute by Punk.
They air a horrible commercial hyping their next pay per view, Capital Punishment. Ugggh. I smell a few new writers in the back.
Brie Bella pins Kelly Kelly
The Bellas pull off the old switcharoo again as Nikki hits the Acid Drop on Kelly Kelly.
Great Puma: Really disappointed there was no Kharma tonight.
Masacara De Fuego: Yeah, this shit was too long and didn’t go how we thought it was… whatever. Twin magic, facebuster, pin.
World Heavyweight Championship
Randy Orton pins Christian
- Great back and forth match. The crowd finally came alive and supplied dueling chants throughout the match.
- Orton does Colt Cabana’s Billy Goat’s Curse that Christian managed to get out of!
- The counters in this match are unreal. I am loving this match. This match is making this pay per view.
- Orton hits an RKO for the win after Christian wiggled out of a belly to back suplex.
Great Puma: Too many great things to mention about this match. Certainly match of the night. Wish they gave it to Christian since the match was so epic.
Mascara De Fuego: The match that saved the pay per view, woke up this crowd and finally didn’t make me regret ordering this shit. Great back and forth match, these dudes had great chemistry and put on a really solid showing.
Kiss My Foot Match
Jerry The King Lawler pins Michael Cole
Cole comes out and says he can’t wrestle due to injury. The ref rips up Cole’s doctor’s note and the match begins.
Second Rope Fist Drop and it’s over.
Lawler invites Eve and Jim Ross to the ring. Eve kills Cole with a moonsault and Jim Ross dumps BBQ Sauce in Cole’s mouth. Very nice payoff.
The Best there Ever Will Be, Bret Hart comes out and backs Cole into the ring to kiss Jerry Lawler’s foot. Bret puts on the Sharpshooter!
Great Puma: Let’s hope that’s the last we see of Michael Cole. Good payoff with Eve, Jim Ross and Bret Hart getting their revenge.
Mascara De Fuego: Finally the payoff they should have done months ago! Lawler squashes Cole then humiliates him. Too bad this wont take Cole off TV for a while like it should.
I Quit Match
The Miz vs. John Cena
They try to do the Mankind finish with Alex Riley’s phone but the ref reverses the decision.
The ref restarts the match, Cena hulks up and makes the Miz say “I quit” after few belts to the back. Boo.
Great Puma: If it wasn’t for Christian vs. Orton, this PPV would have been a total turd. Superman Cena wins again.
Mascara De Fuego: A snuff match for S&M is all this was. That’s all I have to say about that.
That’s it for tonight, folks. Stay tuned for MDF’s Over the Limit review. No podcast tonight – we’re never inspired by pay per views with only one great match. Have a great week and thanks for visiting.
Sorry for the late post folks, I went out to see THOR. Good stuff if you’re into the Comic book movies.
Coffee favored Patron is poured now let’s get into this…
Right off the bat Ricardo Rodriguez is introducing Alberto Del Rio who drives out in a Rolls Royce. ADR comes to the ring and reminds us what his name is. He says his destiny was stolen by that coward Edge and says we wasted a lot of time last week with the Rock’s celebration. He says there is no one better than him and its he who should face Cena. This brings out Rey Mysterio and says his destiny is to be Ricardo Rodriguez’ announcer and then challenges ADR tonight, winner getting Cena. Before ADR can finish his though The Miz and Smackdown’s Alex Riley come out, Miz talks shit about Smackdown and says this is still his show and blames Riley for the shit that happened last week. ADR says Miz had his moment and he didn’t get the job done and now he goes to the back of the line. Miz doesn’t like this shit and says he DID get the job done last week and that the ref was incompetent and tells Rey and ADR to fight in a Taco Bell parking lot. Ha. R-Truth then comes out with no music, he says he hates hospital food and that Morrison is eating a whole lot of that right now because what he did to him. He then says he doesn’t care if the guys in the ring all share the same bed pan and cuts then all down individually. He tells us when an angry black man is talking, we need to shut up…. We get an email… the GM says he only sees three who deserve this match so we’re getting a triple threat, Miz vs. Del Rio vs…. then we get another email…. The third person is… Rey Mysterio. Truth doesn’t take this shit too well and goes off and gets in the face of Rey. Mysterio says Truth should be in the match and that’s “what’s up”. Ha. The crowd gives Truth the “hey hey hey goodbye” chant while he walks off. Miz gets back on the mic and says ADR and Rey are day laborers on RAW. Haha Before Miz can say he will be the next WWE Champion, Rodriguez says Alberto Del Rio’s name. This causes shit to break down with Riley, Rodriguez, Miz and ADR beating on each other. Rey waits his turn and dives onto ADR on the outside before celebrating in the ring.
Well, lets see how this goes… cool that its these three guys and not old hat but Cena isn’t going to lose the title right now so it doesn’t fucking matter.

Right after the match Kharma comes out to the ring slowly. The Bella’s hide at ringside while Eve and Kelly look on. The Bella’s then run up the ramp. Kelly goes to the outside while Eve gets the clothesline. Kharma then runs off Kelly and heads back in the ring to finish off Eve with an implant buster.

Lawler comes into the ring but Cole says The King cant touch him or he’ll be fired. Lawler cuts to the footage last week with Rock beating on Cole. Lawler challenges Cole with the stipulation that if he loses that he would induct Cole into the Hall of Fame himself and even give Cole his HOF ring. Cole says he doesn’t think so and goes back into his glass cage of human emotions. Cole is now pissed cause Lawler couldn’t let him retire in peace, cuts down Tennessee, Al Gore (putting over George W. Bush), Elvis and Lawler. Cole says he decided yesterday to retire from wrestling and how he and his mom watched WrestleMania over and over.

He holds his palms out with his thumbs extended and touching. Rock finally tries to get on the mic but he drowned by “Rocky” chants and cheers. He then delivers “…Finally”, the crowd finishes it but he stays “home” which gets the crowd chanting for him again. He says “we got him” which makes the crowd lose it and chant USA! He then thanks the armed forces and how proud he is of them. He leads everyone in the Plead of Allegiance, hey the Plead got a good pop too. He then goes off about being porn in Miami and how the doctor said he was definitely called Johnson. How he had a mustache and afro in high school looking like the lead singer in Menudo. Haha They cut to the picture on the tron! Haha He said that face right there ate more pie than King Kong Bundy. He brings up college which and bringing the championship to Miami.

He eggs Cole on by calling him a drunk hobbit jack bag bitch. Cole said he isn’t the same guy Rock use to pick on and he associates with winners. Cole then takes off his jacket, shirt to reveal a Celtics jersey which gets booed hard. Sir Michael then goes on to egg Miami because he accepts and heads into the ring. Cole says the GM demands an apology for embarrassing the GM and will shut down Rock’s party if he doesn’t. Cole then says he wants an apology for the shit Rock’s done to him over the years. Rock says Cole is right and he did disrespect the GM and Cole over the years and has one thing to say to him… I’m sorry.
