Pulse Wrestling’s Real-Time Raw Report 04/06/2009

It is Monday and time to catch up on all of the backlash from Wrestlemania 25! Your regular host, Mr. Marshall, couldn’t be here tonight. Follow along with us for two full hours of Raw action…

THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING!

Monday Night Raw is brought to us from Houston, TX on the USA Network. Our ringside announcers are Michael Cole and Jerry “The King” Lawler.

Randy Orton, who lost his match against Triple H at Wrestlemania, comes to the ring to complain about HHH cheating last night and how the fans liked seeing him get beat. He wants a rematch. Vince McMahon appears and heads rather quickly to the ring. Randy bails. Vince tells Orton if he wants a McMahon, he’s in the ring. Randy should not have threatened the McMahon grandchildren and Vince says that Orton will not get another chance at a championship match again but he will get Backlash and he will get a match with his friends DiBiase and Rhodes against HHH, Shane and Vince. Orton wants to face McMahon tonight one on one. Vince says it’s on and we go to commercial break.

WWE Slam of the Week: Wrestlemania match between Rey Mysterio and JBL for the WWE Intercontinental Champion. Mysterio wins and JBL quits to the joy of all of the fans in attendance.

Back to the ring, Matt and Rey are in the ring, but Jeff gets the tag and Matt races to tag in Edge. Jeff goes for a cover, gets two and tags in Cena. Ricky wants the tag and the crowd wants Steamboat. He comes off the top and goes for two. Kane gets the tag, misses a corner squash and Steamboat is cleaning house. Kane catches Ricky in a side slam and Jericho gets the tag. Jericho tags in Show who chokes Steamboat and then threatens the referee. Show tags in Jericho who delivers a clothesline and covers for two. Ricky gets back to his feet, breaks Jericho’s hold but Chris tries to lock in the Walls of Jericho, but Steamboat reverses and goes for a roll up for two and Punk gets the tag. Punk delivers a high knee in the corner, a bulldog, and starts knocking opponents off the ring apron. Kane nails Punk, Jericho covers, but Punk kicks out. Jericho tags in Kane who delivers a boot to the head and we go to commercial break.

Back to the ring, Punk is fighting off Kane but as he comes off the ropes, Kane delivers a boot to the face and tags in Matt who covers for two. Matt tags in Edge who covers for two. Edge tags in Show who picks up Punk by the hair and delivers a head butt before standing on Punk’s head. The ref breaks it up, Show mouths off at the ref and delivers a chop to the chest. Show tags in Edge with a hard slap to the hand. Kane gets the tag, putting Punk on the top turnbuckle but Punk knocks Kane down and comes off to get caught in a choke slam attempt.

Winners: Rey Mysterio, Ricky Steamboat, CM Punk, John Cena and Jeff Hardy

I could have done without the two commercial breaks but this was one great match. I could watch Steamboat every week. He’s still got it. Fortunately we got to see more of Mysterio tonight than we did at Wrestlemania and the others did a wonderful job of making this match work. Triple H is backstage with Vince to talk about the match with Orton and tells him to finish it tonight and we go to commercial break.

Interim General Manager of Raw, Vickie Guerrero, is brought out in her wheelchair pushed by Chavo Guerrero. She says that after Wrestlemania she will have the option of one show or the other and she is going to be the permanent GM of Raw. Edge will have a mandatory rematch against John Cena for the title at Backlash. Cole and Lawler talk about Wrestlemania 25. Vickie is back to tell everyone that the Edge vs. Cena match will be a last man standing. Dibiase and Rhodes are backstage with Orton and we go to commercial break.

Miss Wrestlemania Santina Marella is introduced and The Glamazon Beth Phoenix and Rosa Mendez enter the ring. Phoenix challenges Marella to a match tonight and Marella accepts the challenge.

The Glamazon Beth Phoenix vs. Santina Marella and we go to commercial break.

The ref calls for the bell, a minor tussle, Marella delivers a roll up and gets the three.

Winner: Santina Marella

It was a cute little skit but a total waste of Beth Phoenix.

Randy Orton vs. Vince McMahon

Vince delivers the first blow and then the second and continues to work on Orton where he was nailed by the sledgehammer the night before. Orton rolls out and McMahon is right behind him, slamming his head into the announcer’s table. The action moves back into the ring and Randy delivers a back breaker and the tables are turned with Orton delivering an RKO. Orton backs up for the kick and Shane is in the ring tripping up Randy but Rhodes and Dibiase are right behind him and Shane is getting a beating. Trips is out last, taking out Cody and Ted before coming after Orton. Now it’s three on one as Vince is outside and Shane is dropped. Batista’s music hits and here comes The Animal to clean house. Rhodes is left to get beat on by everyone who can get back to their feet.

I don’t think there was a winner. Batista is back and it looks like he has sided with the McMahon. Vince has a mic and says Orton was right. Batista will be taking Vince’s place at Backlash.

Thank you for joining us. Have a great week and Paul Marshall will be back next week. Join me on Friday for the live Smackdown report on Pulse Wrestling!
