5/21/12 RAW

John Cena vs. David Otunga: N/A

Randy Orton vs. Alberto Del Rio: *3/4

Daniel Bryan vs. Kane: N/A

Christian vs. Jinder Mahal: *1/4

Beth Phoenix vs. Kelly Kelly: *

Sheamus & John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, & Tensai (Lumberjack): **

Cena starts the show and he's got the serious look. Vintage funny complaining Cena. Laurinaitis music. JL's got one of those scooters for the physically challenged. Oh no, not potential nerve damage! Show was re-hired the previous night. Wait, wasn't there a clause saying no outside help from guys on the roster? (oh, that got cleared up by Cole later in the show...verbal agreements) Nice job on continuity. Show's in a nice suit. No explanation from him, but Show vows to nuke Cena on June 17. Otunga with excess body oil comes to wrestle Cena. Game of cat and mouse for a while. Cena ultimately wins. No rating from me.

Reks, Hawkins, Titus, and D-Young all pounce on Cena. Sheamus runs over Laurinaitis and helps Cena clean house. 2-on-3 handicap lumberjack match? That's sorta new.

Ricardo's in the ring, but Santino interrupts. I miss Santino's unibrow. It's a battle of rolling Rs, and Santino wins. Hilarious stuff. Just epic.

Starting with RAW's 1000th episode, the show will be THREE hours. Starts July 23! Woohoo!

Orton and Del Rio go at it. Jericho with the interference on Orton, so that'll be the next feud. Vintage angry Jericho! Yes, he's the best in the world at what he does. Trifecta of codebreakers.

Daniel Bryan calls out Punk. He blames the ref and wants a rematch. Punk mentions what happened on Smackdown, so DB faces Kane. Oops. Punk's on commentary! YESYESYES! Almost same spot as Smackdown, with roles reversed. DB gets caught with the chair and Kane nukes DB. Match thrown out. Anaconda Vice from Punk.

Punk and AJ segment was amusing. Punk digs the crazy chicks. I would too if they look like AJ.

Christian faces Jinder. Killswitch hit, but then Christian hits a frog splash. Looks like they're building even more signature moves for Christian.

Kelly Kelly is back on TV to face Beth. Layla watches in the back. Beth makes a statement here.

We find out the three guys Sheamus and Cena will face: Ziggler, Swagger, and Tensai. Yeah, they dropped "Lord" in Tensai's name, and no more weird entrance suit. All lumberjacks are heels, typical. Sheamus gets worked over. Show spotted on the stage. Cena with his comeback stuff. WHOA, did Cena do some type of suicide dive through the ropes when Sheamus got attacked?! All lumberjacks maul Sheamus and Cena. Face guys in the locker room come down. Vintage brawl!

Cena looks for Show. Show finds Cena. Show decks Cena. End show.
