John Cena defends the title, The Rock goes cougar huntin’
In the aftermath of Extreme Rules John Cena is now the new WWE champion. And he makes it clear to Rock that he intends to stay that way for a very long time, in fact leading all the way up to their match at WrestleMania 28. The Rock responds of course in typical Rock’ly (It’s a word, look it up.) fashion: “Just bring it.”
Miz and Cena’s rematch took place tonight, with both competitors putting on a very impressive show. In a series of reversals: Cena slaps the STF on Miz but he makes it to the ropes, Miz neckbreakers Cena and goes for the pin but he kicks out. During their scuffle Cena accidentally knocks the referee out of the ring. He gets the Miz in the STF and Miz taps, but since the ref is out there is no one to verify Cena’s win. The Miz and Riley hit Cena with both a heavy steel case and the championship belt, causing Miz to pin Cena for the win. However when the ref realizes the Miz cheated his way to victory he reverses the decision, leaving Cena still WWE champion. So once again Cena gets a very non-typical decision reversal in his favor. (See last week’s Fightin’ Words) I’m not saying he didn’t deserve it, but there’ve been plenty of cases where wrestlers have been ambushed/took a weapon upside the head and lost a title, and wrestling officials completely looked the other way. I don’t know what the WWE is trying to prove here but ok we get it: you’re fond of Cena, no need to rub it in. This sort of overt over-catering to him (try saying that three times fast) is only going to make the anti-Cena mob grow that much larger. Remember how when you were little there was always that one kid who got special treatment from his parents, so much so it got to the point almost everybody else around him really started to hate his guts. Yeah, that.
Next Drew McIntyre and Jack Swagger face Kofi Kingston and Rey Mysterio in a tag match. After a pretty decent match (with both Drew McIntyre and Kofi Kingston proving how big of an asset they’ll be to the Raw brand, putting on a very explosive show) Mysterio 619’s McIntyre for the win.
Backstage we’re treated to some hot Rock on octogenarian action, as he plants a big wet one right on the lips of Mae Young. What started out as a prank from Vickie Guerrero and Dolph Ziggler gets reversed by the Rock, when he explains to Vickie that she’ll never “And the Rock means NEVER!” look as good as Mae Young and shows her he means it. I don’t know if Rocky noticed but Mae looked like she wanted to follow him home after that. 80’s the new 70 after all and cougars are the new 18 year olds; I hope he knows what he just got himself into.
