NOw onto the show – Shawn laid out by Ordge – Nitro fights Cena – Michaels questions whether or not to help Cena – Michaels helps Cena.

Here comes Cena! New shirt: “Live Fast, Die Hard!”
“When can we get TNA on Monday.. so we don’t have to watch a promo at the beginning of the show” – Mike

Cena explains that they are tag team partners, but at Mania they have no friends. He then calls out Michaels to come out to kick the teeth down Cena’s throat.
“John Cena’s got big features on a little head.” – Bill

Heeeere comes Shawn!

Shawn has told Cena that nothing is going to happen to him until Mania, because Shawn wants the WWE championship. Shawn agrees. He has one goal for Mania, and that’s to be the champion.
“Praise Jesus” – Mike
“Hallelujeigh” – Bill

Shawn wants to know if Cena is going to turn on Shawn. So Cena tosses the mic from Shawn and are they going to get it on? Of course not, Coach is here.

“It would be a shame for you two to fight each other tonight.” – Coach
“It would break my f*cking heart” – Me

Due to his contract signing, Vince can’t be bothered to deal with them. So instead, Coach is going to give them a cage-gauntlet match for the tag titles.

They pull back and Hey.. a cage!
“Mistico!” – Me

In the back… Trump is here!
“Let the aschel’s begin!” – Hernandez

Next though – Triple Threat – Carlito – Ric – Randy


So we go to an ‘E’ flashback to discuss Trump at Mania… hey it’s Lou Diamond Phillips.
“La Bamba!” – Hernandez
“He is awaiting the Spirit Horse to arrive.” – Me

Now it’s time for the triple threat match.


Here comes Ric. While he shows up, they get a flash to last week where Khali beat him up.

Now it’s time for Carlito! He spits in the face of non-cool people.

Now, Randy!
“HEY!” – Bill
“..hey” – Me
“HEY!” – Bill
“..Pyro!” – Hernandez
“NO!” – Bill
“..hey” – Me

We start and Ric & Carlito begin to chop down Randy! Finally Randy pushes them both at and throws Ric to the ropes.. back body drop and we all wince.
“Dammit Ric!” – Eric
“One of these days he’s going to land and burst like an old potato” – Bill

Carlito then leaps onto Orton. Orton gets out of it. Ric rolls him up for two. Now it’s doubleteam spots on Orton.
“So is Mr. Shit In A Bag gonna win?” – Jenna
“Ric shits in a bag too, it’s just a colostomy..” – Bill

The food arrives so we stop watching for a moment. We come back and Carlito and Ric are still doubleteaming on Randy, each taking their shot at two count pin attempts.

Randy gets his knee clipped a bit. Eats a backelbow. Now Carlito seems to be upset as Ric goes for a figure four. Ric just pushes him out of the way. Of course until Carlito then hits him with the Backcracker!

Randy now throws Carlito to the outside… turns and hits the RKO on Flair… that’s that.


Oh Wait! It was an elimination match.. WHO KNEW?!?!

Carlito runs in and dropkicks Orton over the top!


We come back and Randy has Carlito in a standing Boston Crab. Carlito hits the ropes..
“I gave up Sabado Giganto for THIS!” – Hernandez

Orton drops him and then hits the Garvin Stomp. We mark.
“No appendage is safe.” – JR
“Eww” – Me
“No Phalange will be untouched” – Hernandez

Orton now throws Carlito corner to corner for a pin time. Chinlock spot.

Belly to back from Carlito.
“Carlito, remember that shit I did last week… do it again.” – Jenna

Carlito throws Orton to the ropes and misses the dropkick. Randy now sets up the RKO….. Carlito leaps up and hits a rana.

Carlito then hits a the flapjack. Two count.
“Orton is such a sandbagger” – Mike

Carlito runs to the corner, moonsault to his feet. Enziguiri. Pin for two. Corkscrew Senton… TWO COUNT!?!? Geezus. He charges Orton in the corner again and eats nuts on the top rope.

RKO out of nowhere…. Win

“What Triple Fucking H booking THAT was..” – Me

“He didn’t fall for the Masterlock. It’s siesta time.” – Me
“That’s why he went so fast, he only had precious scant seconds.” – Hernandez

Donald then says to Lashley that since he’s the best, he expects great things.
“Who told him he’s the best?” – Mike
“Bobbie Lindsay is the best.” – Dani
