Raw starts with John Cena coming to the ring. He gets a ton of boos. He says the arena tonight is full of Cena-crats and Rock-publicans. He hypes their match this Sunday and says he respects the Rock. Cena says the Rock’s time is up and his time is now and that the Rock will experience failure this Sunday. The crowd starts a boring chant. He goes on to say that he will shock the world this Sunday and the champ is here. The crowd boos some more.^This promo dragged and made me want to shut off the show. Yeah Cena had passion, but he delivered a snoozer that we’ve heard too many times before. Anyone who says they enjoyed this is either lying or delusional. Even the crowd had it right: boring.Sheamus, Randy Orton, and the Big Show defeat the 3MB in a six man tag. Show pins Mahal after a KO punch. The Shield’s music hits after the match and they come through the crowd but stop. Ambrose tells them to enjoy their victory now because the Shield will leave them with nothing to celebrate with...
