WWE RAW 03/11/13 Results and Review.
We have a tribute to Paul Bearer, and CM Punk comes out, to talk about the Undertaker’s streak potentially ending at Wrestlemania 29. I’m sure many people will really be in a bit of a snit about Punk showing such disrespect, but I didn’t really finda problem with this at all. I could be destentized to everything. Undertaker versus Punk should be a good bout, hopefully.
Kane is out for CM Punk’s blood after what happened, and that was a good segment.
Seth Rollins against the Big Show never really got started, when the SHIELD stormed the ring, and beat up the Big Show, laying him out with a Triple Team Power Bomb. I enjoyed that one, and the SHIELD looks strong leading to Wrestlemania 29.
Dolph Ziggler actually picked up the win over Daniel Bryan, yeah I know, Dolph Ziggler getting the win, there’s a bit of a shock there. Ziggler scored the win, hitting Bryan with the Zig Zag for the one, two, three, when Big E. and AJ looked on.
Fandango against Tensai was supposed to happen, but he will not compete until his name is announced correctly.
The New Age Outlaws give tribute to Paul Bearer, and then the New Age Outlaws and the Rhodes Scholars have a match. Here’s Brock Lesnar, and Lesnar enters the ring, beating up the Outlaws. Paul Heyman accepts the challenge that Triple H made on behalf of Brock Lesnar, and it is on now.
Mark Henry utterly destroys Kofi Kingston, putting him down with the World’s Strongest Slam for the pin. There you go.
The Bella Twins have returned, well that was gloriously random.
Ryback decimates Heath Slater, and then Drew McIntyre tries to get involved. Here comes Mark Henry to do the test of finishers, and Henry and Ryback stare down,and I must say, I’m looking forward to their clash at Wrestlemania.
Alberto Del Rio runs through Antonio Cesaro, who has not won a match in a very long time. Cross Armbreaker gains him the tap out, and the win.
Randy Orton and Sheamus joined forces to take on Team Rhodes Scholars in what proved to be a rather solid tag team encounter. Team Rhodes Scholars put up a fight, but the Brogue Kick gets the win.
The Miz is on the Highlight Reil with Chris Jericho, and Wade Barrett comes out to run his mouth. Jericho brings up the past that he had with Wade Barrett on NXT. Jericho and Miz is made for the number one contendership for the Intercontinental Championship.
That match happens, and Wade Barrett attacks both of them to get the match thrown out. I’m thinking there will be a match between the three at Wrestlemania now.
Jack Swagger gets a win over Sin Cara, and her comes Del Rio, to apply the Cross Armbreaker. Thankfully Zeb is prompt in saving Swagger, and save his arm more importantly.
Kane and CM Punk have a No Disqualification Match, with Kane scoring the win over Punk with a thunderous Choke Slam. This was set up by the Undertaker distracting Punk. Punk nails Kane with the urn he brought to the ring, and taunts the Undertaker.
So not the best RAW in the world leading into Wrestlemania 29, at least this is what this reporter thought as he watched WWE RAW for March 11th 2013.
