WWE Raw SuperShow results: The "Awesome Truth" unfolds
HERSHEY, Pa. — With the “Rock Bottom Heard ‘Round the World” still resounding throughout the WWE Universe, John Cena attempted to set the issue straight. Instead, the Cenation leader created an entirely different issue between the members of The “Awesome Truth.”
John Cena embarrassed The “Awesome Truth”; The Miz laid R-Truth out (WATCH | PHOTOS)
In the middle of addressing The Rock’s attack on him, John Cena was interrupted, as usual, by The “Awesome Truth.” Looking to rile up the Cenation leader, The Awesome One and his dangerous crony got more than they bargained for when Cena turned the tables and convinced both Superstars that they shouldn’t trust one another.
The Cenation’s leader’s seeds of doubt quickly grew into a serious issue between the partners in crime, leading to pushing and shoving in the ring. As politically savvy as ever, The Miz managed to calm his partner down, but as soon as R-Truth turned his back, his former friend nailed him with a blistering Skull-Crushing Finale on the steel entrance ramp.
Wade Barrett def. Kofi Kingston (WATCH | PHOTOS)
The man who led Team Barrett to victory at Survivor Series continued his so-called “Barrage” on WWE Raw SuperShow as he barreled through Kofi Kingston, but the British Superstar’s bout was shaken by a surprise appearance from Randy Orton. Momentarily taking Barrett off his game, The Viper kept a keen eye on the action from ringside as his rival scored the win. The arrogant brawler taunted Orton after the bout, but the former WWE Champion did not strike. Like a true predator, he’s waiting for the perfect opportunity.
Big Show discussed his destruction of World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry (WATCH | PHOTOS)
Using all 480 pounds of his 7-foot frame to decimate Mark Henry’s ankle during Sunday’s World Heavyweight Championship Match, Big Show personally inducted The World’s Strongest Man into the Hall of Pain at Survivor Series. The World’s Largest Athlete admitted it felt good to hurt his rival, but he won’t be happy until he’s wearing the World Heavyweight Title around his massive waist.
WWE Champion CM Punk def. United States Champion Dolph Ziggler in a Title-free Match (WATCH | PHOTOS)
Their championships may not have been at stake in this match, but both new WWE Champion CM Punk and United States Champion Dolph Ziggler certainly fought like they were. Convinced that he was, in fact, the new face of WWE, the United States Title holder looked to knock Punk off his perch early, but The Straight Edge Superstar wasn’t going down that easy. Catching the bleached blond off guard, the WWE Champion scored with a devastating GTS to secure a thrilling victory.
Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes def. Santino Marella (WATCH | PHOTOS)
Describing himself as unmasked, unbeatable and completely unrepentant, Cody Rhodes made an example of Santino Marella, but the real story occurred after the match. Before leaving ringside, the Intercontinental Champion confronted Booker T and explained to the commentator that he's heard his critiques and he's not happy about it. The twisted Superstar then disrespected Book by throwing a glass of water in his face.
Kevin Nash taunted Triple H (WATCH | PHOTOS)
With Triple H still recuperating from Kevin Nash’s vicious sledgehammer attack, the big man took another opportunity to taunt his former friend on live television. Taking cruel pleasure in his words, Nash bragged about returning to Madison Square Garden — the sight of “The Kliq’s” infamous 1996 WWE farewell — while The Game was incapacitated at home. Nash then reiterated that his animosity towards The Cerebral Assassin comes down to one thing — friendship. In Big Daddy Cool’s view, WWE’s COO ended The Kliq when he didn’t sign him to a contract, so Nash ended The King of Kings by breaking his neck with a sledgehammer.
Sheamus def. Jack Swagger (WATCH | PHOTOS)
Jack Swagger was so furious after being manhandled by Sheamus during Sunday’s Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match that he demanded a bout with The Celtic Warrior tonight. Big mistake. Attacking his opponent with the same fire that got him disqualified at Survivor Series, The Great White planted The All-American American with a Brogue Kick.
Alberto Del Rio def. Zack Ryder (WATCH | PHOTOS)
Less than 24 hours after dropping the WWE Title to CM Punk, Alberto Del Rio was out to prove that he was still the man to beat in WWE, but he was facing one of the fastest rising Superstars in WWE. Still pumping his fist from the ovation he received in the Garden, Zack Ryder had the WWE fans in Hershey behind him tonight, but it wasn’t enough to stop the underhanded skills of The Mexican Aristocrat.
WWE Champion CM Punk mouthed off to John Laurinaitis (WATCH | PHOTOS)
Still reeling after winning the WWE Title in Madison Square Garden at Survivor Series, WWE Champion CM Punk promised the WWE faithful in Hershey, Pennsylvania that he would make things interesting on WWE Raw SuperShow again. His first goal? To put Interim Raw General Manager John Laurinaitis on the unemployment line.
The WWE Universe may have liked the sound of that, but Mr. Laurinaitis was quick to squash their applause. Entering to tell the new WWE Champion that he believes they can work together, the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations promised that he was more radical than one might expect and then proved his unpredictability by scheduling Punk in two bouts — a rematch against Alberto Del Rio next Monday and a showdown with United States Champion Dolph Ziggler tonight.
