Damn, Raw has one hell of a card this week.
Match 1. Rhodes vs. HHH
A remarkable match that could lead to a decent rivalry...even though Cody's on the blue show. Rhodes was making his way to the ring when Eddie came from under the ring and attacked him. HHH was dominate and pinned Cody after a backbreaker.
After the match, Ryan, Eddie and McGillicutty appeared on stage and pointed at The Game
Match 2. Batista vs. Edge, Christian and Wade
Another remarkable match. Welcome back to TV, Christian. Edge and Barrett had their way with Batista. Christian came him and received a Batista Bomb to lose the match.
Match 3. Slater and Gabriel vs. Show and Nash
A match on Raw featuring 2 Smackdown teams. Show and Nash were dominating Gabriel in the early going. I'm up in the air on what Superstars I want to cut, so this match may help me decide. After much back and forth action, Nash hit the Jackknife on Gabriel.
Main Event. Punk vs. Kane
Both guys are tying to make a point on why they should be the next man to face Batista. Rey interfered and tried going after Kane. The Big Red Machine hit the Tombstone on Punk while Rey could have broken it up. Stupid Mexican.
The Smackdown card is as bad as the Raw card was good. Here I go with some editing.
Match 1. McIntyre vs. Miz
Two up and comers trying to get back in the title hunt. I haven't seen Drew since February, so I think it was time. Sheamus slowly walked down to the ring with a chair in hand. As soon as Miz hit the Mic Check, Lesnar ran through the crowd to the ring.
Match 2. Booker T vs. Henry
Another reason why the rosters are too big. These two could be top contenders for the World Title. Booker showed Henry why he is the 5-time, 5-time, 5-time, 5-time, 5-time WCW champ. Yes, I had to do it. It was now Mark's turn to show Booker why he is the world's strongest man. Booker prevailed as he hit the Bookend.
Match 3. Rock vs. Bryan
If these two faced in their prime, it would be an AWESOME match. Before the match began, Bryan knocked Rock out with brass knuckles. Even The Great One loses sometimes as he tapped to the Lebell Lock.
After the match, Bryan continued to assault Rocky.
Main Event. Taker vs. Lesnar
These two had an awesome feud in real life, so I'm hoping it translates in my Universe. Lesnar is on the verge of breaking into the top 4 and he might crack it with a win here. Lesnar hit a German Suplex, but Taker reversed the following punch into a chokeslam. Taker won with the Tombstone.
After the match, Christian was at the top of the ramp pointing at Taker.
Recap: Looks like factions across the brands are a popular thing right now. I'm debating on cutting most of the NXT guys (except Barrett). They are taking up top contender spots that they don't deserve. Even though Christian is on Raw, I like the idea of him and Taker going at it.
