Championship’s roll call: WWE Champion: John Cena… World Champion: Dolph Ziggler… Intercontinental Champion: Wade Barrett… United States Champion: Kofi Kingston… Tag Team Champions: Team Hell No… NXT Champion: Big E Langston… NXT Tag Team Champions: Adrian Neville & Oliver Grey… Diva’s Champion: Kaitlyn
Jimmy Uso (w/Jey Uso) vs. Michael McGillicutty: McGillicutty open with a waistlock takedown and then hides in the ropes to annoy Jimmy. They lock up again and Jimmy chops in the corner a few times. He kicks his leg out leg his leg and knocks him off the apron. Back in the ring, Jimmy applies a chinlock; McGillicutty uses the hair to pull Jimmy down and takes over with stomps. McGillicutty uses some knees but Jimmy explodes back with a clothesline in the corner. Jimmy knocks McGillicutty to the floor right in front of Jay and he complains to the referee about it. Back from commercial, McGillicutty is firmly in control. He lets him up and hits a shoulderblock; McGillicutty tosses him off the ropes and tries a monkey flip but takes a falling head-butt. He charges but McGillicutty knees him into the ropes injuring Jimmy’s knee. He takes over with stomps and looks up at the heavens. He keeps applying a chinlock. The fan amuse themselves by Fandangoing until Jimmy shows some signs of life but McGillicutty keeps on him with a clothesline to the back of the head and reapplies the chinlock. Jimmy tries to battle back again and hits a jawjacker. He lands a Bubba Bomb and both men are down. Here comes the comeback with clotheslines, a superkick and Samoan drop; the Samoan Avalanche nets two. Jimmy goes to the top but McGillicutty cuts him off. Jimmy fends him off and tries to leap off the top; he misses but tries a superkick but McGillicutty catches the boot. He misses the McGillicutter and Jimmy scores with a superkick and Superfly Splash for the pinfall. 3/10 An odd match considering that Jimmy is a tag wrestler and McGillicutty is a singles wrestler; the match was nothing too special except for the last ten seconds of counter finisher. Haven’t seen McGillicutty since before WrestleMania and then they throw him out there with a tag jobber, the crowd was dead, obviously.
Here is your winner… Jimmy Uso via Superfly Splash.
Triple H Pedigrees Paul Heyman to accept Brock Lesnar’s challenge.
The Shield defeats Team Hell No and the Undertaker on Raw.
Kaitlyn & Layla vs. Tamina Snuka & Aksana: Kaitlyn and Aksana opens the match; she swivels her ass so Kaitlyn clotheslines her and gives her a snap-suplex. Layla tags and hits the Infinity but only gets two. Aksana turns it around in the corner and gets the Diesel Choke. Layla comes back so Aksana tags out and Tamina beats her up. Layla comes back with the LOL but Snuka keeps on her by tossing her off the second rope. Tamina with a snap-suplex for a one count. Here’s a tag and they work over Layla in the corner. They even dust off the ol’ knock the fresh partner off the apron to draw her into the ring forcing the referee to put her out as the heels double team. Aksana applies a body scissors to which Layla quickly fights out of and tags Kaitlyn. She hits a series of clotheslines on Tamina and a fireman’s carry gutbuster. Aksana runs in and gets speared. Tamina gets a spear too and pinned. 2/10 That was brisk; Kaitlyn dominated two divas at the same time to put her over. I presume that Layla will turn on Kaitlyn (which was apparently supposed to happen before ‘Mania), for some unfathomable reason, to become the next challenger since there really is nothing to this division anyway.
Here are your winners… Kaitlyn & Layla via spear pinfall
Mick Foley tries to talk to Ryback and John Cena saves him from an ass kicking; the Shield tries to attack but Cena takes them all out and then takes Ryback out as well with an AA.
OVERALL 3/10 Bleh show this week with a boring opening match and a divas tag match to close; nothing special here.
