01/03/11 Raw results- Miz retains his title, Orton gets next shot

Morrison gave it his all but still came up short in his quest to win the WWE title

Raw opened with Michael Cole informing the viewing audience that John Cena would not be on tonights show due to injuries sustained last week. Also missing from last night’s show show was Jerry Lawler who was selling Miz’s sneak attack from last week.

WWE Title match:
John Morrison vs. The Miz(champion)
Morrison was unable to win the title, but he had a great title match with The Miz. The match featured several cool spots from Morrison, including a plancha off of the WWE logo and a Starship Pain through a table to the outside. The finish came after Morrison crashed through the table missing The Miz, then Miz hit the Skull Crushing Finale for the pin on Morrison.

Eve Torres, Brie Bella and Natalya vs. Melina, Maryse and Alicia Fox
Natalya dominated Fox and Melina with suplexes and clotheslines. The match ended when Torres hit Melina with a neckbraker for the win.

The Usos vs Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov
Jey Uso got the pin with a Samoan drop on Marella. After the match Marella and Tamina knocked out both Usos with a double cobra.

CM Punk came to the ring to gloat about knocking John Cena out of action. This brought out Wade Barrett who took credit for injuring Cena at a house show, he also insisted that he was still leader of Nexus. Punk and Barrett began to argue when the anonymous General Manager dinged in to announce a Triple Threat Steel Cage Match involving Barrett, Randy Orton and Sheamus to determine the a new number one contender for the WWE Title. Punk and Barrett then agreed that if Barrett won the match he would gain control of Nexus but if he lost Punk would be the group’s leader.

Alberto Del Rio def. R-Truth
The returning R-Truth challenged the cockiest Smackdown superstar Del Rio to a match after Del Rio promised he would dominate the Raw and Smackdown superstars in the Royal Rumble match. Del Rio proved he spoke the truth when he pinned the rapping wrestler.

#1 Contenders Steel Cage Triple Threat match:
Sheamus vs Randy Orton vs Wade Barrett
Barrett had the match won when fellow Nexus member CM Punk came to the ring. Punk met Barrett at the top of the cage and knocked Barrett back to the mat. This allowed Orton to walk out of the cage after he laid out the Celtic Warrior, King Sheamus with a RKO.

01/03/11 Raw preview- Morrison vs. Miz for the WWE Title

John Morrison tries to win the WWE Title from his former tag team partner, The Miz

The first Raw of 2011 features a WWE Title match between #1 contender John Morrison and WWE champion The Miz. Morrison earned his title shot at the last PPV after defeating Sheamus in a ladder match. Last week Morrison won the right to decide the date and type of match he would have against The Miz when he beat Alex Riley. Morrison chose to fight for the title on tonights Raw and for his title match to be falls count anywhere. The WWE Title situation is murky heading into Royal Rumble with several contenders for Miz’s title. I would expect Morrison to lose tonight by outside interference setting up a multiple man match for the title at the Rumble.

12/20/10 WWE Raw preview- John Morrison has his eye on the WWE Title

Tonight on Raw the build starts for John Morrison’s WWE title match as Royal Rumble takes shape

WWE likes to say that ‘the road to Wrestlemania’ starts at the Royal Rumble, but tonights Raw plays a role in the event. The build for Royal Rumble starts on tonights Raw as last nights TLC PPV brought a close to WWE’s Summer feuds. John Cena finally ended his three month feud with the Nexus after he destroyed all the members of the group. Also, The Miz retained his title in a rematch with the former champion Randy Orton. There are several rumors surrounding Wrestlemania and we should start to see confirmation of those rumors tonight. Randy Orton is rumored to be facing John Cena, so we should start to see hints of that soon. Triple H is expected to take on Sheamus at ‘Mania so he should be returning to WWE TV soon. No matches have been scheduled for tonights live episode of Raw.

11/29/10 Raw Preview- Special three-hour Raw features the ‘King of the Ring’ tournament and new WWE Champion The Miz

This Monday on a live three-hour Raw WWE Champion The Miz shows off his awesome title and a new King of the Ring is crowned

It finally happened, this past Monday on Raw The Miz cashed in his Money in the Bank title shot and won the title from Randy Orton. The Miz seized his oppurtunity and pinned Orton after he had wrestled a grueling title match with Wade Barrett. I expect the anonymous GM to sign a rematch between the two for the next PPV.

The Cena/Nexus angle is also expected to continue this week with rumors circulating that Cena has bought a front row ticket to this week’s Raw.

The main focus of this three-hour Raw is the finish of the King of the Ring tournament that began on last week’s Raw. The qualifying superstars are Raw’s John Morrison, Daniel Bryan, Sheamus and Ezekiel Jackson. Also qualifying for the tournament are Smackdown’s Alberto Del Rio, Kofi Kingston, Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre. Of the eight superstars my pick to be crowned King of the Ring is John Morrison, other likely winners are Sheamus, Del Rio and McIntyre. John Morrison seems to be the likely choice when you consider his most recent push and PPV win over former WWE Champion Sheamus.

King of the Ring tournament returns to Raw

The three hour Monday Night Raw on November 29th will feature the return of the King of the Ring tournament

No word yet on if the show will be a joint branded Raw, but if so who do you think will win and be crowned the King of the Ring?

If your choice is not listed feel free to leave a comment with your choice

WWE has also announced two more three hour episodes of Raw. The first will air on Nov. 15th, an ‘Old School’ episode of Raw that features several WWE Legends. The other Raw special will air on Dec. 13th when WWE announces the winners of this years Slammy Awards.
