The Day After Raw: Your Tweets for Nov. 8, 2011
God save the Queen! When WWE Raw SuperShow emanated from Liverpool, England for the first time ever, the ferocity between WWE’s bravest warriors and its vilest miscreants put Parliament on pause. The bellows of raucous Brits at Raw were loud and clear, not unlike the tweets from the rest of the WWE Universe chatting on Twitter and WWE.com’s freshly unveiled WWE InterAction page – the ultimate destination for discussing all things WWE.
It’s the day after Raw. Let’s see what you thought …
Three jeers for Del Rio
All it took was for CM Punk to utter “Boo this man” for the Liverpool legion to enshroud WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio in a swell of jeers. If, as Punk suggested, you fast-forwarded too far past Del Rio’s smarmy address, you may have missed a bit of the verbal spat between the two men with the slickest hair in WWE (three, if you count Ricardo). What you certainly didn’t skip through was the No. 1 contender locking The Mexican Aristocrat in the Anaconda Vise, however briefly. Watch the collision that culminated with Rodriguez’s impromptu, mid-Raw nap. Hopefully, Rrricarrrdo (rolling Rs and all) woke in time for afternoon tea.
@GunneriteFever: Crowd had completely died until Punk came out! :) Loved him telling the crowd to boo this man! LOL #Raw
@AllAboutWWE: "Boo this man"-CMPUNK #wwe #raw haa love it.
@BobbyWWETuxGuy: Ive never seen so much hair grease in one ring, CM Punk, Del Rio, and Ricardo Rodriguez. #WWE #RAW
@MrStraightEdge: Its always good seeing @CMPunk's anaconda vise #BestInTheWorld #Raw
@LloydBarrett12: Maybe Del Rio should get a Best In The World T-Shirt? #Raw
@tanie_kitty: That was a lot of Punk shirts. #raw
@Atakullakulla: #RAW whose hair has more Grease... CM Punk or Alberto Del Rio?
@jdiva86: CM Punk is not gonna cancel the match #RAW
@RKO_DiBiase17: Dude, Punk just spoke some truth right there. (; #Raw
@zackrydergirl50: I'm laughing so hard at Punk right now! xDD #Raw
@Hanzi83: nice half baked reference by punk "BOO this man" #raw #wwe
Starship Pain back in service
It seems Starship Pain was simply under construction this whole time, but service has been restored in the WWE Universe. For months, John Morrison spent his Monday nights hazily gazing up at arena ceilings while getting pinned by everyone from Mark Henry to Dolph Ziggler – but not this time.
Rebounding after a timely WWE.com interview last week in which The Prince of Parkour elaborated on his recent losing streak (FULL STORY), Morrison ended the loss-accruing, anti-Goldberg match record with a victory over the U.S. Champion.
The Shaman of Sexy got his groove back. JoMo found his mojo. However you phrase it, the WWE Universe was abuzz over the apparent refueling of Starship Pain – which strongly overshadowed Dolph’s uniquely tailored T-shirt. (WATCH)
Is JoMo’s jinx perhaps limited to the States? Time will tell when RAW GETS ROCKED in Boston this Monday.
@LeahDaniell: John Morrison won?! The world is once again in balance #thisaintnomakebelieve #RAW
@Custom_Made_GJ: Dolph, you're no Scott Hall when it comes to t-shirt alterations. #Raw

@Podswoggle: Good job Morrison. You ended a losing streak that lasted longer than a Kardashian marriage. #IsThatStillTopical #RAW #WWE
@NimeshMSagar: Congrats to John Morrison on breaking his losing streak; can he now win in the good ol' US & A? #RAW

@homiedaclown24: Wow John Morrison won!!! 3 month losing streak over!!! #WWE #Raw
@UnholyA7X: Morrison should stop using the starship pain cuz he mostly miss #justsaying #wwe #raw
Woo-woo-winning and losing
Maybe Liverpool is the Long Island of the United Kingdom. The crowd’s chant of “We want Ryder!” was nothing shy of explosive in the main event tag match on Raw SuperShow that saw the teaming of the Internet Champion and John Cena, complete with fist pump and broski shades. With both moves and attire in sync, the pair had The Miz & R-Truth reeling and perhaps encouraged even more WWE fans to sign the Twitter petition to get Zack Ryder a future U.S. Title Match.
But the best efforts of the “future Hall of Famer” couldn’t overcome the scheming of The “Awesome Truth,” who literally won by a foot. Embarrassed by Miz & Truth, Cena & Ryder went from winning to losing. At this point, it might be best to lay low underneath those sunglasses after all.
@ohnoitsyasmin: I'm sorry, but when Cena fist pumps it's just like this epic muscle flex. #RAW
@InZachWeTrust: Cena wearing the Broski sunglasses was the greatest thing ever. @WWE #RAW
