August Week 1, Year 4

Two weeks until SummerSlam. I hope Show loses the title again so there can be some new blood in the division.

Match 1. Ted DiBiase vs. Tyson Kidd
The last graduate of Stu Hart's dungeon makes his Raw debut. Both men went back and forth with suplexes. DiBiase went for Dream Street, but Kidd reversed it into a headlock. A minute later, DiBiase was able to hit Dream Street to win.

Match 2. DX vs. American Perfection
Ziggler connected with the Zigzag, but Michaels kicked out at 2. A minute later, Triple H hit the Pedigree on Swagger. DX then kept Ziggler away from Swagger with a couple of tag team moves. Triple H then hit another Pedigree on Swagger to win.

Match 3. Jericho vs. Orton
Show came out and stood in Jericho's corner. Orton chased Show away. Jericho followed and hit a heel kick. A few minutes later, Orton connected with an RKO, but it was too early to put Jericho away. Orton hit a back suplex and dragged Jericho to the middle of the ring. Jericho went to pick Orton up, but he hit a low blow and another RKO to win

After the match, Jericho was checked on by a referee. 

Main Event. Jeff vs. Big Show vs. Kane
Towards the end of the match, I noticed there was a chair floating about 8 feet in the air. Show lifted Kane up for the Showstopper, but his back hit the floating chair. Show hit Jeff with the WMD. Kane picked Show up and hit the Tombstone. Kane hit Jeff with a side slam. Show took advantage of Kane running back and forth and got the win.

Match 1. Morrison and McIntyre vs. Batista and MVP
Mid-way through the match, JoMo and MVP battled outside the ring and the ref ejected them from the match. Batista hit a running powerslam and a spear. He then lifted Drew up for a Batista Bomb and won.

After the match, McIntyre was taken away on a stretcher. Batista stopped the stretcher and continued attacking Drew. 

Match 2. John Cena vs. Alberto Del Rio
Both men were going back and forth when Sheamus ran down. Del Rio hit him with a heel kick. Sheamus left and Cena took control. He hit the spin-out powerbomb and an AA. Del Rio got up, hit a heel kick and locked Cena in the cross armbar. Cena broke out of it twice and won with another spin-out bomb.

Match 3. Sheamus vs. Mr. Kennedy
This was a hard-fought match. Sheamus locked Kennedy in the Texas Cloverleaf. A minute later, Kennedy hit the Mic Check. He picked Sheamus back up for the rolling fireman's carry and another Mic Check. Kennedy ended it with some mounted right hands to get the upset.

Main Event. Undertaker vs. Cody Rhodes vs. JBL
There was a sledgehamemr, chair and the steel steps laying in the ring. Taker busted JBL open with a chair shot. Cody reversed Taker's chokeslam. Taker then received the Clothesline from Hell. Cody hit JBL with Cross Rhodes and won.

Recap: Jericho is injured.
