WWE MAIN EVENT REPORT: CESARO/RYBACK REDUX; TENSAI/TITUS; A NEW ALLIANCE?; INTERCONTINENTAL CUP (1/23/13 - 1/30/13), LEAVE THE MEMORIES ALONE

By Richard Trionfo on 2013-01-30 23:11:53
Last week, we found out that there will be a series of matches over the next few weeks to see who will face Wade Barrett for the Intercontinental Title.

Monday night on Raw, Vince McMahon confronted Paul Heyman about his involvement with Brad Maddox and The Shield and before Vince could utter the phrase that Donald Trump borrowed, Brock Lesnar returned to a WWE ring.

We are in San Diego, California and your announcers are Michael ‘Let’s Go Chargers’ Cole and The Miz.

In addition to his role as a commentator, he is also hosting an episode of MizTV this week. He welcomes everyone to this week’s edition. He says that it is the most must see show because he does not play it safe with his guests. His guest is a man whose actions speak louder than words unless those words are ‘Feed Me More’.

Miz brings out Ryback.

Ryback thanks Miz for having him and he says that he is a big fan of his show.

Miz and Ryback go back and forth with reallys. Miz reminds Ryback of what he did to Miz’s couch the last time he was on the show. Ryback says that he did not realize how comfortable those chairs really are.

Miz asks Ryback to feed him more compliments and Ryback looks at Miz like he told a bad joke.

Miz says that they don’t have a lot in common, but one thing they have in common is that they don’t like the man Ryback is facing, Antonio Cesaro.

We see highlights from last week’s match between Ryback and Cesaro.

Ryback says Cesaro ran like a coward last week. This week, he won’t be that lucky.

Antonio Cesaro comes out and he says that he sees what is going on. They are conspiring against him like Miz and Orton did on Raw. It is typical American behavior.

Ryback tells Cesaro that if he runs this week, he better start now.

We go to commercial.
