Recap of DX/Rated RKO

Rated RKO (c) vs. D-Generation X – World Tag Team Title
The big debate right now is how new Edge’s new star tattoo is. DX runs up the ramp and beats down Rated RKO. DX dominates the beginning of the match. Orton is busted open, and HHH slugs away opening it up more. HHH gets chop blocked, and Orton tags in Edge. Edge works over HHH’s knee. HHH finally gets to HBK. HBK with a diving clothesline, then the elbow drop. Orton jumps HBK, but HHH takes him out. HBK then sends Edge over the top rope. HBK then flies over the top. Edge back in the ring, and HBK is on the apron, then Edge hits a spear sending HBK to the floor, and Orton cracks him over the head with the tag title belts. Orton/Edge go back and forth working over HBK. HBK ducks a slug from Edge, and hits a back suplex. HBK starts to crawl over to HHH, but Edge gets to him, and big boots him. Orton gets tagged in, and stalks HBK for the RKO, but HBK blocks it and gets the hot tag to HHH, as Orton gets to Edge. HHH seems to have hurt his leg badly, and the ref pulls out the X sign. Orton goes for a RKO, and HHH already is on his knee due to the injury. The ref gets bumped, and HBK comes in and destroys both Edge & Orton with chairs. They go to the outside, and HHH Pedigree’s Edge on the JR/King table, landing on his hip to protect his obviously torn up knee. Orton is on the SAP table and HBK nails a top rope elbow drop from the top turnbuckle all the way to the SAP table.
No Contest.

Trainer’s have come out to help HHH to the back.

John Cena cuts a very Rock-like promo, but then turns very serious saying that he is not taking Umaga too lightly.

Carlito (w/ Torrie Wilson) vs. Chris Masters
This match is very short. Masters rolls up Carlito for the win. After the bell, Masters locks on the Masterlock.
Winner – Masters

Recap of Umaga/Cena.

Cena slugs away on Umaga, and Umaga no sells. Umaga tosses Cena over the top rope to the floor. Cena tries to do a sunset flip back into the ring, and Umaga goes to sit on him but Cena moves. Cena goes for a FU, but he can’t hold him up…even though he did it to Big Show less then 2 month ago. Umaga puts Cena in the Tree of Woe, and does a diving headbutt. Cena is now sitting up in the corner, and Umaga goes for the running ass, but Cena gets the boot up, then rolls up Umaga for the pin.
Winner and Still Champ – Cena

Umaga starts tearing the ringside apart as the PPV ends.

I like Comics, Wrestling, Super Mario Bros & Dead Space. Oh ya, and Scott Pilgrim.
