Results For WWE Raw 2/28/11

With Wrestlemania a little more than a month away, we start off with the man who made his triumphant return last week on Raw. That man is Triple H and he has his WWWater Bottle for the most electrifying expectoration in Sports Entertainment.

We have the graphic for the Undertaker versus Triple H match at Wrestlemania (ten years in the making).

Hunter takes a moment to soak in the applause. He says that it is good to see everyone too. He says that they say the true test of a man’s mettle is the test of time. He says that he has done everything there is to do in the WWE. Every accolade, every championship. He defined the Elimination Chamber and Hell in a Cell. He is a thirteen time WWE Champion. He mentions that he started Degeneration X with Shawn Michaels. With Ric Flair, he started Evolution. He says that he has been hated and he has been loved. He has defeated Icons, legends, immortals. He has done it all in his sixteen years. He says that it seems like yesterday. He has seen them all come and go. Hunter says that he has outlasted them all. . .

Except for one. The Deadman. The Phenom. The Undertaker.

Hunter says that he heard Taker referred to as the ‘Last Outlaw’. There are two. He says that they are more alike than Taker would think. Hunter says that there are no more challenges left in the locker room. There are no big tests in front of them. There is only one thing that stands before them. For Taker, it is the streak and he goes year to year. It is what keeps Taker going. When Taker looks around the locker room, Hunter is the only true challenge he has left.

Hunter says that the only true challenge he has is ending the streak.

He says that is the only thing standing between them. It will happen at Wrestlemania 27. The biggest event in history. Hunter looks at the sign and he tells the Deadman that they will define an era. The iconic, immortal, legendary, the last two will meet. On that night, nothing else will matter. There can be only one.

Hunter tells Taker that when the streak dies, Taker dies. Hunter says that he only has one thing left and it is the streak. Hunter says that he will die trying to end the streak.

Hunter poses on the turnbuckles, but he is stopped by the man who put Hunter on the shelf for almost a year.

Sheamus comes to the ring. Hunter kicks Sheamus as he enters the ring. Hunter throws Sheamus over the top rope to the floor and then he sends Sheamus into the ringside barrier. Hunter punches Sheamus and then he sends Sheamus into the ring post. Hunter clotheslines Sheamus into the ring announcer/ring bell cubicle. Hunter puts Sheamus on the announce table and rearranges it. Hunter gets Sheamus set for the Pedigree and after pointing at the Wrestlemania sign one more time, Hunter hits the Pedigree and the table collapses like Sheamus’s status.

Josh and Jerry talk about what we are going to see later on the show as they stand by the fallen Sheamus.

Shawn Michaels and Michael Cole will be talking later tonight.

Speaking of talking, we will go to the Rock House for his response to John Cena.

We go to commercial.

We are back and we have a Moments Ago Moment of Sheamus confronting Triple H, if by ‘confront’ you mean get decimated by Triple H including a Pedigree through the announce table.

We see Sheamus getting helped up by a gaggle of referees and he is still lucky to gain his balance.

The General Messenger makes his presence known and Jerry Lawler is going to read what has to be said.

Jerry says that even though Sheamus was attacked by Triple H, it isn’t his problem so he has to have his match against Evan Bourne.

Match Number One: Evan Bourne versus Sheamus

Bourne with a drop kick into the corner and then he kicks and punches Sheamus. Sheamus throws Bourne down but he misses a clothesline. Bourne with a spin kick and then he goes up top for the shooting star press and he hits it for the three count.

Winner: Evan Bourne

After the match, it is time for the ‘voice of the WWE’ to make his way to the ring and that person is Michael ‘I am to James Franco as Jim Ross is to Billy Crystal’ Cole.

Cole stands in front of Lawler and he has something to say but nobody else can hear him. Cole says that he will tell Lawler, but we go to commercial.

We are back with the Slam of the Week: Michael Cole being challenged by Jerry Lawler last week on Raw for a match at Wrestlemania.

Michael Cole is in the ring and he wants everyone’s attention. Cole tells Lawler that he wants to do it man to man and face to face. He wants to do this eye to eye. He tells Jerry to get off his fat antiquated butt right now.

Jerry gets up from the new announce table and Cole reminds Jerry that he cannot strike him or he will be fired.

Cole says that he looked at the edict from the General Manager. If Lawler strikes Cole, he is fired. Cole asks Lawler if he thought he was intimidated last week. Did Lawler think that he was going to cower from his Wrestlemania Challenge. There is no one on this Earth with more guts than him.

Cole says that he never backs down from a fight. Cole says that his answer to Lawler’s challenge is no. That is unless Lawler accepts two conditions. The first condition is that his trainer can be in his corner at Wrestlemania. The second condition is that he gets to choose the special guest referee for the match.

Jerry takes the mic and he tells Cole Sore that he doesn’t care if Cole has the Dark Knight, King Kong, Saba Simba, and Superman with him because the answer is that he is on.

Cole says that they have their match and he is a little too happy. Cole decides to introduce his trainer. He says that he is a former World Champion, Jack Swagger. Swagger gets in Lawler’s face and Cole pushes Lawler but Cole can’t get fired for touching Lawler.

Cole slaps Lawler and Lawler goes after Cole, but Swagger stops Lawler and he puts Lawler in the ankle lock.

We go to commercial with Randall Keith Orton walking in the back as only Randall can.

We are back and Did You Know that WWE’s Facebook page gets a lot of new members every day.

Steve Austin will be on Raw next week.

Michael Cole joins Josh Mathews at the announce table and I wish I was with Sheamus because he probably can’t hear this. Cole wants to see highlights of the ankle lock that we just saw.

Randy Orton comes to the ring and he has something to say, probably to CM Punk and Nexus.

Orton tells Punk that he was right about something last week. Two and a half years ago when he kicked Punk in the skull, he made the biggest mistake of his career. The mistake was that he should have kicked Punk harder. He says that Punk can talk about faith but it won’t protect him. Orton says that he will kick Punk so hard that it makes his neck snap. He will crush Punk’s spine and make him a permanent resident of a rehabilitation facility where his goal will be to walk again. Punk will eat from a straw and everything will be a haze. The only thing that Punk will have left is the faith that deserted him.

CM Punk comes out with three members of Nexus since Husky Harris is still injured.

Punk calls Orton an arrogant but predictable hypocrite. Punk says that Orton’s ego has put him here. Even though Orton will try to put him in a rehab facility, Punk says that he is going to put Orton in the ground.

The General Messenger appears from his dingy dingy world and Cole gives Josh the honors. Since there is only one way for Punk and Orton to settle things and that is in a match at Wrestlemania. Randy Orton will face members of the Nexus leading to Mania. If they win, they will be allowed in Punk’s corner. If Orton beats them, they will not be allowed at Wrestlemania. The Messenger says that if Punk or Nexus interfere in any way, Nexus will be disbanded.

Match Number Two: Randall Keith Orton versus Michael McGillicutty

They lock up and Michael backs Orton into the corner. Michael with a kick in the corner but Orton turns the tables and he punches Orton. Michael with an Irish whip but Orton with a clothesline out of the corner. Orton with a snap mare but he misses the leaping knee drop. Michael kicks Orton but Orton clotheslines Michael over the top rope and we go to commercial.

We are back and Orton punches McGillicutty but Michael with a drop kick and he gets a near fall. Michael gets another near fall. McGillicutty kicks and punches Orton in the corner. Orton with kicks but Michael with a knee and punch followed by a snap mare. Michael goes to the turnbuckles and he hits a leap frog neck snap for a near fall. Michael with a reverse chin lock on the master of the reverse chin lock but Orton gets to his feet. Orton with a belly-to-back suplex and both men are down.

Michael runs into a boot and then Orton with clotheslines and a power slam. Orton with a back breaker and then Orton stares into the third row and then he sets for the IEDDT and he is going to hit it on Michael. Orton twists to the mat and does some push ups as he waits for the RKO and he hits it and gets the three count.

Winner: Randy Orton

CM Punk stands on the stage while Orton stares around the ring and he sees Michael in a position that his tag team partner was in a few weeks ago. Is Orton thinking of going for a field goal in the city made famous by a missed field goal?

Punk tells Orton to stop, but does he mean it. Punk uses the ‘three name’ taunt to stop him so he does not kick Michael in the skull.

Orton shows that he is not good with instructions and he is good from 45. Orton goes through the crowd while Punk, Ryan, and Otunga fail to stop him before Orton climbs to the concourse.

We have footage from the contract signing of Sin Cara in Mexico last week.

The Miz and Alex Riley are walking in the back and Michael Cole keeps talking about how great he thinks Miz is.

We go to commercial.

We are back with the Slam of the Week: Miz turning on his tag team partner and fellow champion John Cena last week.

It is time for Michael Cole to mark out without uttering the two words because The Miz is coming to the ring and he is joined by Alex ‘Mongo’ Riley.

Miz says that the Rock is going to respond to John Cena tonight. Miz says that he called out the Rock last week and he isn’t responding to him. Miz says that we know why. That is because Rock knows that Miz is right. This is no longer the Rock’s show. Rock was the biggest sta
