This particular Monday Night Raw was a little on the lame side but there were a few good things that happen throughout the night. The first thing worth mentioning about the October 5th episode of Monday Night Raw would be that John Cena and his role in Nexus seemed to be the highlight of the show as throughout the night Cena was showing visible signs of frustration as he was forced to take orders from Wade Barrett because the GM informed Cena that if he did not take orders from Barrett then Cena would be fired. This stipulation was mentioned after Cena destroyed Carver. Cena was on Carver’s team but beat up Carver and didn’t allow Carver to make any tags to Cena. Cena then was in the main event in the 20 man battle royal where the winner would face Orton at Bragging Rights at the end of October. Cena helped out Wade Barrett the entire time and it ended up being Barrett and Cena on the ring together as the last two standing and Barrett told Cena to eliminate himself, which he did and Barrett won the match and will now face Orton for the title.
Edge didn’t apologize to the GM and instead was informed that he was traded to Smackdown and then Edge talked a bit of trash until The Miz and his protégé came down to the ring. Edge tried to fight both the Miz and Alex but the Miz ended up delivering his finisher move to Edge and knocked him out.
Daniel Bryan was also involved in a very short matchup with Sheamus but Sheamus just attacked Bryan and kept kneeling Bryan in the head and the ref decided to call the match. Sheamus was visibly angry about losing to Randy Orton at the Hell in a Cell match the night before. There was also another short match where Natalya defeated Alicia Fox and Flawless also fought in a tag team match against the Bella twins and surprisingly the Bella twins won.
Ted came out with Maryse and attacked Johnny Knoxville and when they were about to leave the ring another message appeared on the titantron that read “you are mind” and then Gold Dust appeared and knocked Ted out and told him he didn’t want Ted or Maryse but wanted Ted’s own belt instead.
There were a lot of useless situations that occurred on this particular Monday Night Raw but it could have been a whole lot worse but it definitely could have been a whole lot better to.
