  • DiBiase Jr's plan to make the Million Dollar Man the host of RAW fails as DiBiase Sr. delivers a descent episode of RAW against Legacy's favor.

    Match #1: Carlito & Primo Colon vs Edge & Chris Jericho 6.5/10

    Last week's match between the 2 teams was much better, but for a tag team match, this match was solid. Carlito inadvertanly distracts the ref as Jericho hits the Codebreaker followed by an Edge Spear to get the 1-2-3. In a shocking turn of events, Carlito attacks Primo until officials tell him to get away from him. So....another brother/ brother tag team rivalry? *cough* Hardys *cough*. I suppose these 2 high-flyers would have between average to good bouts, so this rivalry probably won't be that bad... hopefully.

    _____________________________________________________ Match #2: Mark Henry vs Cody Rhodes 1/10 (+1 for ending this quick... don't like either of these 2) Right off the bat, Henry hits a W.S.S. on Cody resulting in him leaving for a count out victory


    Match #3: Mickie James & Gail Kim vs Maryse & Alicia Fox 6.5/10

    Solid diva bout resulting in Gail Kim pinning the Diva's Champion, Maryse.


    Match #4: Ted DiBiase Jr vs Randy Orton 7.5/10

    This match far beyond my expectations. I actually enjoyed this a lot more than the main event 3 Stages of Hell match at The Bash.

    DiBiase took Orton to the limit in this back and forth match. It looked as if he was going to win with a Dream Streak, when Orton countered and hit an RKO resulting in Orton respecting his Legacy member even more.


    Segment 1 MVP's VIP Lounge- guest- Jack Swagger 6.25/10

    They basically take verbal shots at each other eventually leading MVP to challenge him into a fight. Swagger merely imitates himself from last week leaving the arena in surrender. Looks like this is the beginning of a Swagger/ MVP feud that will likely lead into a SummerSlam 2009 match.


    Segment 2 DiBiase Jr confronts his dad backstage NA/10

    Jr confronts his dad about his decisions leading to an OMG moment as Jr slaps Sr (it sounded legit too).


    Match #5: Kofi Kingston vs Evan Bourne 6.75/10

    Unfortunately, their match was really short, but in that short time, they got some good, quick back and forth action between the 2. Surprisingly, Bourne gets the win after a S.S.P.

    Big Show makes his way to the ring to basically squash both of these guys.


    Match #6: John Cena vs Triple H 6/10

    I'm am not a fanboy of either of these superstars nor a hater so my expectations for this main event was average and the result....craptacular. I found it funny that throughout the night King and Cole dubbed this match as "RAW's biggest main event ever". Their matches at Night of Champions 2008 and Wrestlemania 22 were way better. A crappy match with a crappy ending as Legacy attack both of them.

    Orton makes his way to the ring as he fills in for Lilian Garcia stating that both of them "didn't win", therefore he faces neither of them at Night of Champions. DiBiase Sr makes his way to the ring as he thinks otherwise stating that they both "didn't lose" leading him to announce that the main event at Night of Champion would be a triple threat... I'm confident that I wasn't the only one who saw that. Triple H will likely win the title to end this boring feud that shoud have ended months ago.


    Overall 7/10

    Descent RAW with the Orton/ DiBiase bout standing out.
