Monday Night Raw Preview
August 15, 2011
To say the Undisputed WWE Championship Match at Summerslam last night ended in controversy would probably be one of the biggest understatements in WWE history. The goal of the evening was succeeded, as one man did walk out with the WWE Championship, but it was not either of the two men that went in with it. After CM Punk somewhat beat John Cena after a mistake from Guest Referee Triple H, he was attacked by the unannounced Kevin Nash, who chose Summerslam as the right time to make his first appearance in the WWE since the Royal Rumble Match. Nash gave CM Punk his signature Jack Knife Powerbomb, allowing Raw Money in the Bank winner, Alberto Del Rio to run down to the ring and cash in the illustrious contract on the weakened Punk, winning his first championship in the WWE. No one has heard from Kevin Nash since the incident, so no one actually knows why he showed up at Summerslam and attacked Punk in his finest hour. What we do know however is that the new WWE Champion is going to open up the show with his 'Championship Address'. But I think anyone would bet their house on CM Punk coming and trying to spoil the party.
As for the other man that was 'screwed' out of the WWE Championship at Summerslam, John Cena, he will be facing an old rival on Raw, as he goes one on one with his Wrestlemania 27 opponent; The Miz. Miz has recently joined forces with the delusional R-Truth, and also adopted his conspiracy theories, creating the dangerous and unpredictable tandem known as 'The Awesome Truth'. Will John Cena be able to contend with the underhanded tactic employed by Miz and Truth, or will the numbers game be too much for Cena?
Another match that has been confirmed for Raw is Rey Mysterio going one on one with the United States Champion Dolph Ziggler in a non-title match. Ziggler will no doubt be accompanied by his business associate Vickie Guerrero, who we all know had no qualms about getting involved in Dolph's matches. Mysterio himself has had issues with Guerrero on a number of occasions in the past, most notably when Vickie betrayed Mysterio in favour of her nephew Chavo in 2006. Ziggler though is a dangerous competitor without the help and influence of Guerrero, and would be a handful enough by himself. If Mysterio is able to avoid being caught victim to the underhanded tactics of Ziggler and Guerrero, one must assume that he would be an ideal challenger for Ziggler's United States Championship in the not far future.
It will be no secret to anyone that Beth Phoenix will be coming into Richmond from Summerslam in a foul mood, which means no good for any of the other Divas. Beth was defeated by a roll up from Kelly Kelly at Summerslam, putting Phoenix to the back of the line. The Glamazon is looking to get back on track on Raw, as she faces the Divas Champion's best friend Eve. The next Pay-Per-View is in Phoenix' home town of Buffalo, so The Glamazon needs to start picking up wins if she wants to be on the card.
