Raw Results 06/27/11 - Raw Roulette

Raw Results from Las Vegas, NV:

Michael Cole and Lawler opened on commentary reminding fans that tonight's show is Raw Roulette. The spinning of the wheel was shown bycommentator/wrestler Booker T. Shawn Michael's music hit to bring the Heartbreak Kid out to start off Raw. Michaels talked about how tough it was to stay away from the WWE after leaving. He said he's not going to be like the other hosts plugging their stuff, but then announced he's got a show premiering on the Outdoor channel tomorrow night.
As Michaels was joking around about his Twitter being up on the Titantron, CM Punk's music hit and he arrived out with McGillicutty and Otunga. Punk brought up how he'll be leaving WWE just like Michaels did. Punk said it's a win-win, and reminded Michaels that he didn't win on his way out, but lost to Undertaker. Punk said he's going to lose as their WWE Champion. Michaels asked Punk if he's run that by WWE Champion John Cena. Punk said he has no doubt he can beat Cena again at MITB in Chicago in July.

Michaels and Punk got into it about who's better. Punk said he's the best now, just like Michaels used to be the best. Punk said they're a lot alike. Michaels said they're not, because he's got his own style. He delivered a Superkick to KO Otunga. Punk told Michaels he just made the biggest mistake of his life. The anonymous Raw GM chimed in with an email saying Punk gets the first Raw Roulette match of the night.

Booker T spun the wheel backstage and it stopped on a question mark match. Booker said it means Punk gets a mystery opponent and he has an all-expense trip to Hell, because he gets to face Kane. Back in the ring, Punk was stunned by the news. Michaels gave another superkick to knock down McGillicutty, then said "good luck with all of that" before leaving. Kane's pyro flashed and he came to the ring.

Kane vs CM Punk

Late in this one, Punk went to the corner where Kane was going to attempt a high risk move. Punk tried for a Superplex, but Kane fought him off and knocked him to the mat. Kane set up for his flying clothesline, but Punk rolled to the outside of the ring. Punk walked up the ramp saying he was done with this. The ref started the countout and Punk walked backstage. Finally the countout reached 10.

Winner: Kane wins due to countout of CM Punk.

Backstage, Booker told Kofi Kingston the Raw GM gave him the power to spin the wheel and determine his match against Dolph Ziggler. Kofi went to spin, but Vickie Guerrero stepped in his way and said "excuse me" then spun the wheel. Kofi asked if that counted and Booker told him to just wait. It landed on "Player's Choice" meaning Kofi got to pick the match anyways. He said he wanted the match he voted for last week, with Vickie banned from ringside.

Late in this one, Kofi attacked Ziggler with kicks and punches, hammering away. Dolph got a big kick to Kofi's head stunning him. Ziggler tried to toss Kofi out of the ring, but instead Kofi hit the top rope with his head and shoulders, then bounced back. He delivered Trouble in Paradise to a surprised Ziggler as he turned around. Kofi with the pinfall win.

Winner: Kofi Kingston wins via pinfall over Dolph Ziggler.

Backstage, Raw Roulette host Booker T had WWE Diva Maryse standing next to him. Booker kept talking up the show so far. Alberto Del Rio came in to interrupt asking why he has to face Big Show again. Booker said he'd ask him to spin but he'll do it instead. Del Rio told him no, then asked Maryse to spin for good luck. Maryse started talking to Del Rio how much they have in common, liking expensive things. Meanwhile, the wheel stopped on Steel Cage match, upsetting Del Rio. Booker said "tell me she did not just spin that!" and laughed at Del Rio.

He said a lot of guys backstage have been calling them relics. Drew said he's the future of the company and demands they leave in the next 10 minutes or get taken out on stretchers. Suddenly someone slugged Drew and he hit the ground. It was HBK, who said "that had to hurt." He asked DDP about the Nitro DVD, and DDP said he's going to like it.
