April 9, 2012
1. RAW and Smackdown GM John Laurinaitis and David Otunga show a video package of "the new face of WWE who will carry the company banner for YEARS to come." Years? They introduce Brock Lesnar, who comes out to a good ovation. Holy s***. Michael Cole said he conquered the UFC and became UFC heavyweight champion. Wow. Props to Vince McMahon for acknowledging the obvious. Brock Lesnar gets on the mic and thanks Laurinaitis. Crowd boos that. Lesnar says Laurinaitis had the wisdom to bring legitimacy back to WWE. John Cena interrupts.
Now this is gonna get interesting....
Cena gets a big mixed reaction that never gets old. He smiles at Lesnar and Laurinaitis. Cena says off-mic'ed he never got to thank him for last week and SLAPS Cena. Lesnar pummels him. The entire RAW locker room comes out to the ring to separate them. Holy s***! Cena's mouth is a bloody mess. Good use of juice here. They brawl again. Then get separated. Then brawl again. Then get separated. Then after a long pause, Lesnar jumps on Cena. This is insane. I won't say this is Mike Tyson-Steve Austin, but for younger fans that also follow UFC, this definitely is that moment for them. Wow. Lesnar's face is red as hell and Cena's mouth still has blood. Lesnar walks away smirking.
They replay the insane brawl after the break and advertise the live WWE SuperSmackdown. Laurinaitis tells Teddy Long to get Cena. Eve Torres interrupts Laurinaitis and Otunga's conversation to be a hoeski. Laurinaitis tells her to make an appointment. She says "you have my number...call me." NICE.
Funkasaurus BRODUS CLAY is introduced. Santino Marella joins him. Vickie Guerrero in a cougartastic tight dress introduces Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger.
2. Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler vs. Santino Marella and Brodus Clay.
Wait...did Michael Cole just say reveal Cena vs. Lesnar at Extreme Rules on COMMENTARY or did I miss Laurinaitis making that announcement? WTF?! Lesnar being brought back on a B-PPV might not be the best idea, but the internet is BUZZING right now.
Clay beats one of the blonde midcarders.
Winner: Brodus Clay and Santino
The Miz is shown apologizing to Laurinaitis for the brawl, but the GM says don't worry about it, Cena steps in Laurinaitis' office, bloody mouth and all, cutting an intense promo, saying Laurinaitis wants to get rid of him. He says he likes a fight and isn't scared of blood. He says put me in a match tonight. He walks off. Laurinaitis tells Teddy he'll face Otunga.
They hype Mark Henry vs. CM Punk for the WWE Championship--a rematch from last week.
