Raw Results 08/09/10

Raw Results from Sacramento, CA:

Cole and Lawler opened the show reminding fans of the main event with John Cena and Bret Hart teaming up against Chris Jericho and Edge. The Nexus members will be lumberjacks around the ring.

Bret 'The Hitman' Hart arrived out to start the show off. Hart told the fans he's been in Calgary the past two weeks training for Summerslam, but has recently seen things falls apart for Team WWE. Hart talked about Edge and Jericho quitting the team, but said when he spoke to John Cena 3 weeks ago he vouched for them. Hart called out Jericho and Edge to talk to him face-to-face right then. Jericho's music hit and he arrived down to the ring to talk.

Hart told Jericho it's put up time and it's a chance for Jericho to stay up to the plate and change things. Hart told Jericho he and Edge are hurting themselves by not joining Team WWE. Bret asked Jericho if he'd re-join Team WWE now, or would disappoint all his fans around the world. Jericho said his answer is still no. Jericho said Hart is more concerned about getting beaten badly tonight in the match against him and Edge. Jericho added that nobody can replace he and Edge in the WWE. He said once again in WWE 'Bret Hart is screwed'.

The Rated-R Superstar Edge arrived out next to join the conversation. Edge talked about how he and Jericho idolized Bret Hart growing up. Edge told Bret 'I don't know about Jericho, but you can count me in'. Jericho looked perplexed and started to get out of the ring. Edge went for a handshake with Bret, then tried to kick him but Bret grabbed Edge's foot. He dropped him to the mat and started going for a Sharpshooter, but Jericho rushed back in and raked Bret in the eyes. Edge and Jericho exited the ring just as Natalya came rushing to the ring in tears. She was yelling at Bret about something, and then the camera showed backstage where Nexus was finishing up a beatdown on The Hart Dynasty in the locker room area. Barrett looked at the camera and told Bret it must be a tough day, because now he can forget Hart Dynasty being their two replacements. Bret and Natalya left the ring to rush backstage.

Backstage, Bret and Natalya were checking on Hart Dynasty with a WWE medical staff. Bret started to leave with a chair to go get Nexus. Cena arrived in and told Bret to stay there and take care of his family.

Evan Bourne vs. The Miz

Late in the match, The Miz got kicked in the stomach repeatedly by Bourne, causing him to fall into the corner. Bourne had a tremendous reverse Sunset Flip type move from the corner for a very near fall. Miz responded with a clothesline to level Bourne. He waited for Bourne to get up then hit Skullcrushing Finale for the win.

The Miz got on the mic after his win. Miz said he doesn't care if it's Sheamus or Orton with the belt after Summerslam, because when he's ready to cash in he will become WWE Champion.

Winner: The Miz wins via pinfall over Evan Bourne.

They showed John Cena trying to have a conversation with Great Khali backstage. Ranjin Singh wasn't around to translate.

Melina vs. Alicia Fox

Melina was in her first match since arriving back from a knee injury last week. Alicia Fox made claims a week ago that she's beaten every diva Raw has to offer.

Melina went on a tear during the match, with a series of moves including her bend backwards Matrix-style duck of Alicia's clothesline. Alicia got caught in several moves and eventually rolled outside. Melina went out and around the side of the ring but Alicia cut her off with a clothesline. Back in the ring. Alicia continued to punish Melina in the ring hitting a huge backbreaker for a near fall. Alicia got Melin a up on her back to stretch her out even more. Melina let out a primal scream before doing a Last Call Sunset Bomb to grab the pinfall on Alicia.

Winner: Melina wins via pinfall over Alicia Fox.

Backstage, Josh Matthews interviewed Great Khali without Ranjin Singh. He asked Khali if after talking with John Cena if his allegiance is to Team WWE or Nexus. Khali grabbed the mic and yelled "WWE". Matthews thanked him but Khali yanked the mic again and began speaking in his language. Matthews asked if he could say what he said in English. Khali said "Wade Barrett, you and me tonight!"

During break, Michael Cole read an email from the anonymous GM. The GM ordered Alicia Fox to defend the WWE Divas Title against Melina at Summerslam 2010. Michael Cole said also during break the GM emailed to tell them that Wade Barrett will face Khali one-on-one tonight. Also tonight there will be a Divas Summertime Spectacular tag match. Also, Sheamus plans to call out Randy Orton tonight.

Backstage, Edge and Jericho talked over what happened out in the ring with Bret Hart. Jericho said maybe Hart's right that Nexus could take over Raw and he and Edge could be ostracized. Edge told Jericho that they've survived every big name in the business: Rock, Stone Cold, Undertaker, DX, etc. Jericho told Edge he's right and tonight they'll take out Cena and Hart, to get rid of the Summerslam match.

They showed R-Truth and John Morrison talking about having each other's backs in the Nexus feud. Mark Henry walked up and said he's got their backs and to consider his next match 'his audition'.

The Celtic Warrior made his way to the ring after letting out a big yell. Mark Henry was being helped backstage by referees as Sheamus walked past. Sheamus said Orton's been all talk, but Sheamus isn't and that's why he's WWE Champion. Sheamus said if anyone things Orton will just swoop into Summerslam and take the title away, they should watch the following video closely.

They rolled a highlight package of Sheamus dominating various wrestlers, putting Jamie Noble into retirement and sending HHH out on a stretcher. Sheamus said right now he wants to tell Orton face-to-face. Orton's music interrupted any further speaking by Sheamus as The Viper came to the ring.

Orton said Sheamus had the opportunity to take him out in the ring last week and blew it, just like he'll do at Summerslam. The fans started up a R-K-O chant and Orton paused with a smirk. Orton told Sheamus the fact remains, Sheamus has never beaten him and never will. Sheamus brought up how he's defeated HHH and Cena. Orton interrupted saying he's not HHH and certainly isn't John Cena. Sheamus told him he's not WWE Champion either. Sheamus said after Orton loses he goes back to the end of the line like Cena.

Orton told Sheamus if he wants to redeem himself to do something about it. Just as they got into a staring contest, the email sound came over the speakers as the lights blinked. Cole read the GM's latest email. The GM said in the past Sheamus' matches have had outside interference, so if anyone interferes at Summerslam, those superstars will get suspended indefinitely. The GM added that if Orton loses he will go to the back of the line like Sheamus suggested. The GM said he agrees with Orton that if Sheamus isn't scared, to do something about it, right now.

Sheamus shook his head and backed away. He rushed towards Orton with a fake punch then smirked before turning to leave. Orton rushed and attacked him from behind, but Sheamus got the upperhand. Orton managed to dodge his big boot kick and hit a huge backbreaker on Sheamus. Sheamus stayed face down then got on his hands near the corner.
