WWE Raw Results: 5/17/10
Exclusive report by Bill Pritchard for WrestleZone.com:
RAW Opening Segment:
Bret Hart’s music starts the show tonight and the "hometown" crowd is going crazy for the Hitman. Bret says hello to Toronto and addresses The Miz challenging him tonight. Bret says he told WWE headquarters he would be there, but he may have done that hot tempered. He doesn’t want to be remembered as an old timer who held on too long, and he won’t be wrestling tonight. Chris Jericho’s music starts, interrupting Bret as he makes his way down to the ring. Jericho says why, but not why not wrestle, he wants to know why Bret even came back. Jericho says Bret is ruining his legacy and he is a shell of his former self. He calls Bret a phony, but Bret tells him to look in the mirror. Bret recalls Jericho’s time in the Hart Dungeon, and says Jericho is a phony. Jericho says he is the best there is now, and that Bret came out just to get one last rush from the crowd. He says Bret doesn’t matter, and the only person who does is Jericho.
Jericho continues by telling Bret that his fans are sick of him and no one wants him to stay. Bret’s legacy will be walking away from a fight with The Miz, and that his father would be ashamed. Bret tells Jericho to tell The Miz he will have a match tonight and to get ready. Jericho doesn’t like it, and wants Bret to make it a no DQ match. Bret says he wouldn’t have it any other way, and says he’s taking the title, and says The Hart Dynasty will continue being the tag champs after Sunday.
It’s no commercials tonight, but they will still feature some ads to fill the time as they turn a segment into a semi funny spot that parodies the Geico ads. Khali gets trapped in a tiny rental car while Hornswoggle drives by in a Hummer and laughs at an angry Khali and Ranjin Singh.
Edge comes out and cuts a promo about all of the hosts Randy Orton has taken out. Edge says Orton won’t RKO him, and he’ll show Orton how far he’ll… GO! Just Close Your Eyes hits and Christian enters to the delight of the peeps. Christian is the mystery opponent in Edge’s "Pick Your Poison" match.
