Re: WWE: The TwoThousandAndEleven Diaries
Monday Night Raw (August 8, 2011)
The show opens with CM Punk, John Cena and General Manager Jerry Lawler in the ring. Lawler says that there will be no physicality between the opponents tonight or they will be punished. He says that the only contact there will be is a handshake right now to confirm the match on Sunday and Punk and Cena oblige, staring into each otherís eyes the whole time. Lawler then brings up the WWE Tag Team Championships being defended in the main event and also announces United States Champion Mason Ryan taking on Mr. Money In The Bank John Morrison in a non-title match, which will take place right now!
Match One: John Morrison defeats Mason Ryan after the Starship Pain. After the match, The Straight Edge Society briefly attacks Morrison before leaving.
With Morrison still laying in the ring R-Truth walks out onto the stage and says that Morrisonís briefcase is going to be his come Sunday at Summerslam. He says that he was always the stronger partner in their team and he will be stronger once again when they go one-on-one in six days time.
Match Two: The Miz defeats Zack Ryder after a match full of dirty tactics with the Skull Crushing Finale. Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler look on at ringside and provide frequent interferences in the match, not to forget Zigglerís manager Vickie Guerrero.
After the match, Jerry Lawler walks out onto the stage and says that he senses tension building between the four men. He announces that this Sunday at Summerslam, they will go at it in a fatal 4-way match where the winner gets a shot at the WWE Championship the next night on Raw!
Match Three: Jack Swagger defeats Dolph Ziggler by disqualification after Miz attacks Swagger and the referee catches it. A four-man brawl starts between the competitors and they each stand in a corner of the ring eyeing each other down before continuing to brawl to end the segment.
We go backstage to The Straight Edge Society with Punk coaching Mercury and Rollins before their big title match in the main event. He says that is essential that everyone in the group keeps their titles and that he is counting on them to decrease John Cenaís morale going into Summerslam.
Match Four: The Isles of Power defeat The Colons after Burchill hits Primo with the Curb Stomp. After the match Jerry Lawler walks out and says that at Summerslam there will be a four-corners tag team match with The Straight Edge Society taking on Rey Mysterio and Evan Bourne, The Colons and The Isles of Power for the WWE Tag Team Championships, regardless of who wins in tonightís main event.
Natalya walks out for a promo and she says that she is destined to become the next Womenís Champion because she is the only woman to have survived the Hart Dungeon. She says that Kharma can intimidate the other divas but not her but then Kharma herself makes her way out. Natalya says that she outdid Kharma last week and doubts that Kharma can do anything this week to scare her but then the championís opponent is introduced and it is a male wrestler! Kharma smiles as she prepares to take on a man!
Match Five: Kharma defeats JTG with the Implant Buster in a squash match. Afterwards Natalya looks slightly scared as they have another stare down.
We go backstage to John Morrison who is there for an interview and he is not looking his best. He says that he took a beating earlier tonight but he took a beating to win his Money in the Bank briefcase and he will take another one on Sunday if it means beating R-Truth once and for all.
Main Event: Rey Mysterio and Evan Bourne defeat The Straight Edge Society to win the WWE Tag Team Championships after a 619/Shooting Star Press combination on Rollins. The new champions celebrate with John Cena to close the show, as The SES glares at them from the ramp, with two fewer titles than when they started the show.
