Who was fired?
WWE No Way Out on PPV
Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ - June 17, 2012
Commentators: Booker T, Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler
Steel Cage Match: John Cena def. Big Show (w/ WWE GM John Laurinaitis). Vince McMahon was at ringside. If Show loses, Laurinaitis will be fired on the spot. If Cena loses, he's fired.
No, I highly doubt anyone will actually be gone for a significant amount of time if "fired." Big Show comes out manhandling Cena. Honestly, this starts out like almost every Cena vs. Show match you've seen since 2003, only in a steel cage. Laurinaitis is rocking an obnoxiously red suit with a white shirt and blue tie. LOL. This is Super Cena at his finest. Show splashes Cena and he kicks out. Cena pulls Show into the ring when he tries crawling out of the door.
Laurinaitis closes the door on Cena. McMahon hits Laurinaitis. McMahon tries to open the door for Cena. Laurinaitis attacks him. But he's your boss! So wouldn't Laurinaitis get fired anyway now? #Logic
Big Show knocks out the ref and Cena, then tries to walk out of the cage. Brodus Clay comes out with a steel chair. I thought badass Show wasn't afraid of anybody? Show teases climbing out, but Brodus is circling his direction. Alex Riley and Santino Marella try to climb up to get revenge. Show knocks them off the wall. Same for Zack Ryder. Kofi Kingston comes out as Show is climbing up and Show falls back into the ring, out cold. Cena using the ropes to get to the door. Show recovers, but Cena hits the Attitude Adjustment. Cole says "You gotta be kidding me?!" No, while impressive as hell, we've seen FU's to 500lb Show since 2003, dude.
Cena tries the pin, but no ref. Cena climbs up. Laurinaitis tries using the crutch to keep Cena at bay. Brodus holds Laurinaitis back. Cena escapes. Wouldn't he be fired anyway since he attacked McMahon?
Winner: JOHN CENA - John Laurinaitis to be fired
Cena puts Laurinaitis in AA position. McMahon walks up to him, takes the mic, asks if it's on, and says "John Laurinaitis--YOU'RE FIRED!" Cena then AA's Laurinaitis through the Spanish announce table. Happy Father's Day, everybody!
Not as bad of a main event as I thought it'd be, but let's be real: Most people have no interest in seeing Cena vs. Show again anytime soon.
Overall, a decent PPV, but much like last month, had a lot of filler. The WWE Championship match was good, not great. The World Title match was excellent. As for the main event, it was solid and Brodus Clay coming to Cena's aid was a nice little surprise. We also got the storyline payoff on the PPV for a change, as opposed to free PPV. That being said, No Way Out felt like Monday Night RAW with a hotter than usual crowd and a PPV quality World Title match.
