Somehow, and for some reason, Vince is backstage with Hornswoggle watching video of Hornswoggle impersonating Jim Ross. Vince says he’s not doing it right and makes fun of JR’s voice and Bells Palsy. B.A. Star indeed.
Anyhow, Cena shows up, says Big Hoverin’ Johnny sucks and needs to go. Vince says what would YOU know, seeing’s how you lost to the Rock at Wrestlemania and all? Then Otunga shows up to kiss more ass, Vince isn’t impressed and asks who could respect a man who would willingly kiss another grown man’s ass? The camera pans to a dejected looking William Regal on the couch. Poor Regal.
Finally, Kofi gets to the ring and Big show lumbers out. And then? Commercials. Yes. COMMERCIALS! GODAMMIT!
To Kofi’s credit, he tries to surprise the giant by attacking him before the bell rings. That works as well as you expected it would and Kofi spends the next 8 minutes having the Jamaican accent simultaneously beaten back into him and back out of him. It’s brutal, and it makes Show look like the beast he should be. Good stuff.
Finally Show wins, and leaves the ring. I fully suspected we’d see Shredded Dreaded Kofi ribbons laying all over the ring. I wasn’t far off. No blood, but I guarantee he needed some Excedrin after this one. Backstage Johnny is happy about this turn of events, but first we need commercials!
Three HOURS OF RAW folks…nearly a full hour of commercials tonight. Get used to it.
