May 20, 2012
No WWE superstar can interfere and if Johnny Ace loses, he's fired:
John Laurinaitis def. John Cena via Big Show's heel turn/interference to remain General Manager and executive vice President of Talent Relations.
We got a fancy, shmancy video package that thankfully cut Cena's crappy go-home promo on Monday Night RAW short. That was brutal. And Brock Lesnar is finally referenced. Of course, it's in reference to his inexplicable loss last month at Extreme Rules. Laurinaitis comes dressed in a ridiculous Under Armour looking Power Ranger outfit that had People Power logos on it. Cena takes off his shirt and the ladies pop. Cena quickly takes Laurinaits down. Oh no. Cena revealed Laurinaitis' physique and it was pale and not pretty. He chopped him and teased the FU. Instead, Cena gave him an airplane spin.
The commentators forced the fakest laughter you've heard since a couple RAWs ago. Cena rings the bell in Laurinaitis' ears. Cole tried to put over Laurinaitis' All Japan Pro Wrestling accomplishments, although it's painfully obvious Cole has never watched AJPW, Puroresu, or anything remotely resembling Japanese wrestling in his life. Well, maybe the WWE Titlle match we saw tonight to some extent. Cena puts a headseat on. Laurinaitis has one and mutters something. The announcers keep laughing. Laurinaitis eats a table shot and gets whipped into the apron. He's in the ring now trying to shake Cena's hand.
OK Power Ranger Laurinaitis is kind of funny. I'll give you that, WWE. commentary. Body slams on Laurinaitis. What happens now is the reversal of getting over. It's called getting under, as Jim Cornette once said. Cena gets on the mic and says he'll put him in the STF. If Johnny can last 10 seconds without tapping, he'll let go. He does. Cena does it again. He does. I've seen regular WWE superstars tap quicker. Just what we need in the main event of a surprisingly good B-PPV. Bulls*** comedy. Cena says he's thirsy and pours water on Johnny, including onto his crotch. Cena then gets a fire extinguisher sans Amar'e Stoudemire.
Cena teases using it, as Laurinaitis cowers away. Cena then spray it like crazy. I hope the front row fans have oxygen masks. Cena dumps trash on Laurinaitis. Now front row fans have to worry about extinguisher gunk and smelly trash. Laurinaitis goes into the crowd. Hey, at least they're getting their money's worth, I hope. Laurinaitis slams Cena's bad arm onto the barricade and now big Johnny is rolling. He's got a steel chair. Holy Doodlesquat. Big Johnny running wild. Cole is now in heel mode. Cena kicks out. Cena takes the steel chair from Laurinaitis and does a Five Knuckle Shuffle with the chair. Laurinaitis low blows Cena. Cole is now full heel mode. Laurinaitis escapes through the crowd.
