Chris Jericho confronted John Cena; Raw GM made several announcements Digitals
Chris Jericho bickering was probably inevitable. Last week, John Cena revealed that he would team up with Jericho, Edge, John Morrison, R-Truth, The Great Khali & WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart to battle The Nexus at SummerSlam. This week, Jericho started in with the whining. The self-important Superstar interrupted Cena and began protesting that he should be appointed head of the assembled squad. Mercifully, Cena halted the rant by knocking the microphone from Mr. Vocabulary’s hand.
Before tensions could bubble over, however, Raw’s anonymous General Manager interrupted. Through announcer Michael Cole, the mystery GM put forth three important declarations. First, the SummerSlam battle between the Raw Superstars and The Nexus would now be a 7-on-7 Elimination Match. Secondly, The Nexus would put their unity to the test in the night’s main event, in which they face select members of the Raw roster in just such a bout. And lastly, Cena and Jericho would test their cohesion in a tag team match against two Raw Superstars
WWE Champion Sheamus & United States Champion The Miz def. John Cena & Chris Jericho
At the rate they’re disintegrating, it’ll be miraculous if the Raw Superstars team even make it to their 7-on-7 Elimination Tag Team Match at SummerSlam. During a tag bout pitting John Cena & Chris Jericho against WWE Champion Sheamus & United States Champion The Miz, Cena and Jericho’s partnership descended into squabbling. While he may have been preoccupied, Cena was still ready for Miz, who he nailed with an Attitude Adjustment. That’s when the self-important Superstar turned on his partner, hobbling Cena with a Codebreaker, allowing The Miz the pin. Mr. Vocabulary then tried to lock in The Walls of Jericho, but Cena reversed the maneuver and squeezed Jericho into an STF.
Not long afterward, the remainder of the Raw Superstars SummerSlam team made their way to the ring, including Edge, The Great Khali, R-Truth and John Morrison. When Khali attempted to make peace between Jericho and Cena, Edge leveled him with a Spear. The rest of the squad continued the back-biting and vicious attacks, calling into question whether or not the tenuous team will rise to the challenge of The Nexus or fall into disarray.
