Who even know this was the poster for this show. It’s actually quite scary.
We’re on the usual post-WrestleMania malaise where things seem weird and awkward and booking is a rehash of what we just saw at WrestleMania. It’s low energy time in WWE. However, this year, it’s going to be interesting to see what they do. The draft is tomorrow. There’s no Shawn Michaels to turn to and it looks like Batista is a goner as well. Someone has to be pushed right? And stop laughing about Jack Swagger.
1. Triple H vs. Sheamus
By opening with this match, it screams angle alert. Well, the match never got started. Sheamus jumped HHH in the back and hit him a few times with a pipe. Triple H needs medical attention.
ShowMiz, who aren’t even on the card, are out to talk. Miz is hyping tomorrow’s Raw where Bret Hart has to announce them as the greatest tag team. Teddy Long comes out and says ShowMiz will have to face a team of his choosing and if they beat ShowMiz, they’ll receive a future tag title shot. Miz won’t stop talking so Teddy adds two more teams. And before Miz can make it four, Show closes his mouth.
2. R-Truth and John Morrison vs. ShowMiz
Yet another WrestleMania rematch. I hope they give them more time this time, but if Teddy’s sending three teams at them, I’m going to guess they won’t. And isn’t the gauntlet gimmick supposed to be for the faces who have to go through hoops? This is kind of weird.
Morrison had an arm bar on Big Show while hanging over the top rope and he was disqualified for not breaking the five count.
3. MVP and Mark Henry vs. ShowMiz
Mark Henry isn’t fired yet?
By the way, is a gauntlet match in which you can get disqualified for not breaking the 5 count on the ropes extreme? MVP had Miz pinned but Show punched him right in the face and Miz pinned him.
4. The Hart Dynasty vs. ShowMiz
Well, maybe this can save this terrible segment. Bret Hart came out with them.
It was the shortest of all. Both Harry Boy and TJ kicked Show off the apron and hit their version of the Hart Attack for the pin. They get a tag title shot tomorrow. Both of my kids popped so maybe this was actually ok.
Winner: The Hart Dynasty
5. CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio
