Re: WWE: The TwoThousandAndEleven Diaries
Monday Night Raw (August 1, 2011)
The show starts with R-Truth coming down to the ring and saying that he has accepted John Morrison’s challenge for a match at Summerslam and that Morrison will be putting his Money In The Bank briefcase on the line. Morrison comes out and says that they have history both as a team and as enemies- he says he hasn’t forgotten Truth injuring him months ago. Truth smiles and says he will do it again and tonight will be a preview of what will happen to John Morrison at Summerslam.
Match One: R-Truth defeats Chris Masters with the Shut Up in a fairly short match. After the match Truth and Morrison bicker.
We go backstage to John Cena who delivers a heartfelt and passionate speech about how much the title means to him and how he wants to prove to the fans that he is still the champ and how The Straight Edge Society are going down and that at Summerslam John Cena will be the last man standing.
Match Two: Natalya defeats The Bella Twins in a handicap match after making Brie tap to the Sharpshooter with Kharma watching the match at ringside. After the match the two vixens stare off with Natalya outdoing the Women’s Champion this week.
We go to the ring where Zack Ryder comes out for a promo. He says that he knew The Miz couldn’t just leave him alone and that he hadn't forgotten the two shock wins he got against “The Awesome One” last month. Dolph Ziggler comes out and says that Ryder’s win last week was a fluke and that The Miz is the least of his problems. The Miz comes out and says that he just plain doesn’t like Zack Ryder but then Jack Swagger interrupts and says that he’s there standing up for Ryder because he sees the snake-like qualities in Ziggler and The Miz and he will do to them what he did to Alberto Del Rio at Money In The Bank, and mentions that Del Rio hasn’t been seen on Raw since then.
Match Three: The Miz defeats Jack Swagger with The Skull Crushing Finale courtesy of interference from Ziggler’s manager Vickie Guerrero. After the match Miz and Ziggler beat up the faces before Ziggler throws The Miz out of the ring and poses on his own with Vickie clapping to end the segment.
We go backstage to The Straight Edge Society and Punk mentions that in tonight’s main event he will be taking on Evan Bourne and he calls him a casualty. He says that whoever gets in their way of purifying Raw by getting rid of John Cena will be dealt with accordingly.
Match Four: Carlito defeats Paul Burchill with the Backstabber after Primo and Drew McIntyre get into a scuffle at ringside and distract Burchill. After the match Finlay gets his shillelagh and goes to attack The Colons but they manage to escape unharmed.
We go backstage to Jerry Lawler and The General Manager says that next week’s Raw Supershow will have to be something special. He announces a WWE Tag Team Championship match, as Joseph Mercury and Seth Rollins will defend their titles against Rey Mysterio and Evan Bourne again but this time in a no-disqualifications no-countouts match! He also announces The Miz taking on Zack Ryder and Jack Swagger taking on Dolph Ziggler in singles matches as well as The Colons taking on The Isles of Power in a tag team match.
Main Event: CM Punk defeats Evan Bourne after a GTS with some help in the form of distraction from The SES. After the match Rey Mysterio and John Cena run out to help Bourne but The SES slide back into the ring and attack the faces, once again posing with all their titles to end the show.
