WWE Raw Results
Nexus comes out to start the show and they are all smiles as they enter the ring. Barrett says as the fans can see they are still standing together, and they need to address some issues before they bring out the newest member of Nexus. Barrett identifies the attackers from last night as Michael McGillicutty and Husky Harris, and says he didn’t ask for their help and he didn’t need it either. He asks what the other four Nexus members were thinking by coming down to the ring and risking getting him disqualified? He says they can get to that later, because Barrett asks for a very warm welcome to John Cena.
Cena comes out without his entrance music, and Barrett says this is the best thing that could have happened to Cena. Tarver asks Cena who is laughing now, because he failed, and he tells Cena they have a gift for him. Tarver holds up a Nexus armband and Cena gets in his face, but reluctantly takes off his purple armband and finally puts the Nexus band on. Slater says they are all there for Cena and they prepared a statement for Cena to read about how he feels about Nexus. They tell him he doesn’t have a choice and Cena reads it and he says he recognizes he is a member of the Nexus, and any Nexus enemy is now an enemy of his. He says he hopes the fans stick by him because they are either Nexus or against us.
Barrett says Cena will have a tag match against Bourne and Henry and he gets to pick his partner, and Cena picks Tarver. Barrett says there is no time like the present, and tells Bourne and Henry to get out to the ring now to start the match.
John Cena & Michael Tarver vs Evan Bourne & Mark Henry
Cena shakes Bourne’s hand and Tarver yells at him, and gets in and goes to work on Bourne as we go to a commercial. When we get back Henry has control of Tarver and tags Bourne in, who hits a stomp to the shoulder of Tarver. Cena sarcastically reaches for a tag as Bourne holds Tarver while Henry comes in and kicks him in the ribs while Cena avoids the tag on purpose. Henry smashes Tarver on the back and steps on his chest, and tags Bourne back in and he hits a standing Shooting Star Press for two. Bourne runs into a release belly to belly suplex and Tarver tries to make the tag again, but Cena drops on the apron and signs an autograph for a fan as Tarver screams at him. He turns back around and walks into the World’s Strongest Slam by Henry, and gets pinned as the fans cheer for what Cena just did.
