MORE PICS AND GIFS TO IMMEDIATELY COME AFTER THE SHOW
BREAKING NEWS - Vickie Guerrero just signed Champion vs Champion - Alberto Del Rio vs John Cena for tonight's show. Naturally, The ProWresBlog Championship will be on the line for this.
Raw has a new opening video.
They said they'd talk about old champions throughout the night. They showed some clips of Buddy Rogers and Lou Thesz. The main Rogers clip was his very good Chicago Match against Pat O'Connor. I really enjoyed that one and think it still holds up today.
The Shield vs Christian and The Uso's
Josh interviewed the PTP's on the app. Josh said it was a big night for them. Titus said he wasn't afraid of Punk and said they had the advantage because Punk/Axel never teamed. The PTP's said their agenda won't be compromised. Titus called Heyman's butt "The fat, round, mound of rebound", ripping off Charles Barkley's name.
Dolph Ziggler vs Jinder Mahal
They showed more old champs.
Sheamus said he wanted a match tonight on the app. Vickie said, "I'll give it to you. Good luck."
Special Referee - Daniel Bryan: Randy Orton vs Kane
On the app, they fought outside and Orton got put into the steps shoulder first.
Fandango vs Sheamus
The Rhodes Scholars got interviewed on the app by Josh and said they had a statement about competing in the MITB match against each other.
The Miz vs Ryback
On the app, they showed Ric Flair talking about Hulk Hogan from Prime Time Wrestling 9/9/1991. I have this on DVD. Maybe someday I can review it. Flair said he was the real champion and told Hogan to "put up or shut up".
On the app, Fandango got interviewed and said he was improvising so Josh could get his good side. He said, "Every side of me is good". They then said they had reservations.
CM Punk and Curtis Axel vs The Prime Time Players
Kaitlyn and Layla talked on the app. Josh said that AJ had some compromising photo's of Kaitlyn.
Kaitlyn vs Alicia Fox
They showed clips of Steve Austin vs Shawn Michaels from Wrestlemania 14 on the WWE app.
Cody Rhodes vs Antonio Cesaro
Damien Sandow took offense to people being "mouth-breathers". The Scholars said they won't fight each other at MITB.
On the app, they showed Jack Swagger winning MITB at Wrestlemania 26.
They had Eva Marie and Jo-Jo Offerman from WWE Total Divas talking to the Bella's. The Bella's ripped on them.
They showed Bray Wyatt's tweet where he said The Wyatt Family is coming next week to Raw.
Champion vs Champion - John Cena vs Alberto Del Rio
This is also for the ProWresBlog Championship. John Cena won the ProWresBlog Championship upon beating The Rock at Wrestlemania. The way the title works is that any match the champion is in becomes a title match and if he loses the match, the person who beats him gets the win and the title.
Cena is 4-2 against ADR in singles matches on TV. I reviewed two previous Alberto Del Rio vs John Cena Matches here and here:
Overall thoughts: Not a great show here. There wasn't much good wrestling to be had and it wasn't that great angle wise. Skip it.
