Mysterio and del Rio tangle; R-Truth puts out an APB.
Rey Mysterio comes to the ring and addresses R-Truth for sneaking him last week. He wants to teach R-Truth that there’s a reason he was left out of the main event last week so he calls him out. Mysterio then proceeds to wait for Truth to show. An awkward span of time with no Truth later, Mysterio is still waiting. “Is he coming?” King wonders. “Oh yeah, he’s coming alright.” Michael Troll promises, and I get the feeling both announcers are just filling time right now. Then the cut to commercial. Curious, was R-Truth backstage furiously putting on his gear, not realizing his cue was coming up. Guess we’ll find out after the break.
Commercial for some movie called Super 8. Looks like a horror or sci-fi thing. Hmmm, someone did tell marketing that that’s the name of a hotel chain, right? I can imagine the tagline– “Just when you thought it was safe to check in before 7… Dun dun dun!” What’s the sequel going to be called, LaQuinta? Anyway…
Aaaaand back from commercial and Truth still hasn’t shown. Mysterio stands in the ring, still looking completely befuddled until Del Rio pulls up in his pimpmobile. Is this worked, a shoot, a worked shoot. Damn you, Vince Russo, I can’t tell the difference anymore. A noticeably rowdy crowd this week. Everytime there’s an almost 3 count the front row crowd jumps up and says “One… TWOOOOOOO!!!” Someone even holds up a gigantic poster with a large #2 on it. Maybe someone started a new internet meme that I’m not getting.
R-Truth finally makes his appearance in the rafters, ranting about there being a thief in everybody’s midst. “There he is! Rey Mysterio. He stole my #1 contenders slot!“ Truth shouts. “Somebody call the police.” Aghhh, again Truth comes off as trying too hard, making this promo seem awkward. Just relax, guy. The people hate you. They really, really hate you. (As a heel, of course. As a wrestler most people–at least me– think you’re the bees knees.) You don’t have to keep trying so hard. Once again it ends up sounding like Truth rambling incoherently. Even Jerry the King realizes this, adding: “R-Truth babbling… Anyway, back to the match.” Mysterio sets up the 619 but Del Rio’s ring announcer interferes, causing Mysterio to win by DQ. Truth comes in and sneaks Mysterio with a clothesline. He then takes position, waiting to get off his ‘What’s up?’ finisher.
Rey Mysterio, getting up from R-Truth’s sneak attack, proceeds to stumble and stagger in getting up long past the point where it was practical, almost becoming borderline comical. “Get on up, you son of a bitch!” Truth commands. Mysterio continuing to sandbag it, he picks him up before flattening him once again. Oops, did the PG censors know Truth would sneak in a “B-bomb” just before WU’ing Mysterio. (Speaking of wrestling things that could become a meme, I’m just waiting for someone to do a gif of Rey Mysterio’s “hobble legged” get up. Or maybe I’m the only one twisted enough to have found that kinda funny. If no one else does, I may just work one up myself.)
At any rate, i’ve been noticing quite a few borderline non-PG moments since the Rock’s return. They went from bleeping every instance of him using the word “Candy ass” to allowing, during his birthday celebration, not only that but Troll to be called a “drunk hobbit jack bag bitch”.
Which he is, of course. You just can’t call him one on PG tv. At least, I thought you couldn’t.
