    Raw Starts

    Highlight Reel

    Jericho is announced, already in the ring in a black v-neck t-shirt, black vest, and sparkly black scarf. He’s all smiles, but JBL is being nasty already through the “Y2J!” chants.

    Jericho – Welcome to Raw Is Jericho. This is the Highlight Reel in Des Moines, Iowa. I love cheap pops. It’s always great to be in front of hard working fans such as yourself. Give yourselves a hand for that. But my guest hasn’t worked a day in his life. Everything he’s received in the WWE on a silver platter. Tonight on the Highlight Reel, Randy…

    Trip’s music hits, and out comes Trip, Rollins, Kane and Orton, all in black suits. Orton with his shirt open, no tie. The same for Rollins, but wearing a black shirt. Trip in a pink shirt, and darker pink tie. Kane looks all corporate with a white shirt and red tie. Trip leads The Authority into the ring. JBL wants them all to beat up Jericho, and he will join in!

    Jericho – Randy, I wasn’t expecting you to bring your law firm of Sellout (Kane), Suckup (Rollins), and Schnoz (Trip).

    Kane – Chris, as Director of Operations, may I remind you…

    Trip – Don’t worry Kane, I’ve got this. This is Chris Jericho! The man that never grew up, and I mean that both figuratively, and literally. (Trip holds his hand to show that Jericho is short.) I’d love nothing more than swap insults with you, but I have business to take care of.

    Jericho – You’re right Hunter, (into a baby voice) I’m just a wittle guy. But I’m confused as to what you’re saying. You usually don’t conduct important business in this ring, unless your wife is being put in jail.

    Trip – You should be more concerned with thanking me than coming up with witty banter, as much as I would love that. That scarf is just a treasure trove. But…

    Jericho – At least it’s not a pink tie.

    Trip – Yeah, it’s violet nimrod, anyway… (The tie is most obviously a darker pink than his shirt, at least on my TV.) You should be thanking me for making this the most historic Highlight Reel in history.

    “You tapped out!” chants at Trip.

    Austin Ernst won the LPGA Tour's Portland Classic on Sunday with a par on the first hole of a playoff against South Korea's I.K. Kim.

    It was the first professional victory for the 22-year-old Ernst, who shot a 5-under 67 in the final round to get to 14 under at Columbia Edgewater. Kim, the first- and second-round leader, carded a 68.

    Kim missed an eight-foot par putt in the playoff that handed the win to the American.

    A year ago as a rookie in Portland, Ernst shot a third-round 62 on the way to a ninth-place finish. In Ernst's mind, Columbia Edgewater was a likely place for her first career win.

    "I've dreamt of winning golf tournaments on tour," Cauley said. "It's probably 80-20 between celebration and relief. It was a lot of fun today. Winning is what we aspire to do."

    Fred Couples won the Champions Tour's Shaw Charity Classic on Sunday, chipping in for eagle for a course-record 9-under 61 and beating Billy Andrade with a tap-in birdie on the first hole of a playoff.

    "It never came into my mind about winning the tournament until really maybe the 15th, 16th holes," said Couples, four strokes back entering the round.

    The 54-year-old Couples also eagled the par-5 11th and had five birdies in his third straight bogey-free round at Canyon Meadows.

    Ryan Blaney edged German Quiroga by 0.049 seconds to win the Truck Series race on the road course at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park.

    The win Sunday was Blaney's first of the season, but third of his career. Blaney and Quiroga drag-raced off the last corner to the finish line after Blaney made a pass in the final turn.

    "That was a ton of fun racing with German," said Blaney. "We raced really, really hard and really clean and that's how racing should be. We had a problem last week (at Bristol) and just fate would have us racing each other for the win this week. That's awesome. That's what racing needs to be, it was so fun racing with him and battling it out with him."

    It was Blaney's second win in a week -- he won the Nationwide Series race at Bristol last week with a late pass of Kyle Busch.

    Crew chief Ernie Cope was worried when Kevin Harvick's practice laps didn't go as well as expected Friday.

    So Cope sought reassurance from his driver.

    "I asked, 'Are we all right?" Cope said. "He said, 'We're going to smash them tomorrow night.

    Harvick indeed was a smashing success, leading the final 159 laps to beat Joey Logano and win an unusually wreck-free NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday night.

    Harvick, who will start from the pole Sunday night in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race, took the lead on the 37th lap and ruled the 1.54-mile tri-oval for his third win of the season in 11 races.

    Will Power raced with his head instead of his gut. Only a catastrophe was likely to derail his IndyCar Series championship, and the Australian knew he had to throttle the aggression that has made his career -- and occasionally wrecked it.

    Yet after Power moved patiently and safely through the Fontana field, a restart gave him a chance to seize the lead, if only for a few laps.

    Power couldn't resist. With one last daredevil move, he pulled in front for just long enough to ensure he wouldn't back into his long-awaited title.

    Hennie Otto of South Africa held on to claim a second Italian Open victory by two shots on Sunday, while Stephen Gallacher came up just short of an automatic Ryder Cup spot after finishing third.

    WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (38-2-1, 27 KOs) defeated #12 WBO Mirko Larghetti (21-1, 13 KOs) by a 12 round unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Gerry Weber Stadium, Halle, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.

    Huck just narrowly missed knocking the 31-year-old Larghetti out in the 12th round after hurting him and knocking him out after the bell. Huck hurt Larghetti before the bell, but he was knocked out after the bell. Either way, Larghetti lost the fight. The final judges’ scores were 116-112, 116-112 and 118-110.

    It was a pretty dirty fight by Huck, who landed a number of very hard elbows to the head and rabbit punches during the fight. The elbows seemed to do a lot of the damage in the later rounds when Huck was landing at least one hard elbow to the head per round. Larghetti kept his cool didn’t retaliate, but he did complain to the referee Jack Reiss about the elbows. He in turn warned Huck but never took any points away for them.

    Impact Wrestling starts off with a video package showing The Hardys, The Wolves, and Team 3D. Those three teams will battle it tonight. It then switches to the Six Sides of Steel where Bobby Roode and Eric Young both dropped to the floor at the same time. Who goes after the TNA World Heavyweight Championship?

    The camera shows the Manhattan Center as the crowd is on their feet! They are ready! Music hits and here comes Kurt Angle! Kurt comes through the crowd in the balcony. He has a mic. He welcomes New York City to Impact Wrestling. He says it is his job to put on the best show he possibly can for all of us. Tonight he did not disappoint. Tonight there will be a grudge match between Ethan Carter III and Rhino. And for the main event it will be Team 3D vs. The Hardys vs. The Wolves. He then says he was suppose to congratulate the winner of the Six Sides of Steel match last week but Roode and Young both won. He will sit down with them though. He will let us know about later. Just then, music plays and here comes MVP and then Lashley and Kenny King are behind him. They walk down the ramp. They get in the ring and MVP grabs a mic. MVP asks Kurt if he said “fair”. He says he lost respect for Kurt for pandering for the New York City fans. He then asks Kurt how the man in charge is as everyone thinks that they can book a match… especially when they have a phone and a 140 characters. MVP then starts to mock the New York City crowd.

    MVP continues and says this crowd has little dignity. And if gave out chokeholds, everyone will be down on their @ss. He says the King of New York is The Destroyer Lashley! Lashley steps forward and raises the TNA World Championship. Just then, Tommy Dreamer walks down the ramp with a microphone. He gets in the ring. He says MVP knows how he feels about him. He says MVP is one of the most underrated talents in wrestling. He then says Kenny King is a sell-out because he is from Queens. He is better than this. He turns to Lashley and says he has finally lived up to the potential he has. He has become the most dominate World Heavyweight Champion this or any company has ever seen through his handwork and sacrifices for this audience. He doesn’t need to get cheap heat. Just then, King hits Dreamer from the side. Dreamer falls. King grabs him and tosses him to the outside. MVP gets back on the mic and tells Kurt he has this. Just then, Dreamer grabs a kendo stick, trips King, pulls him to the outside and tosses him away. Dreamer gets in and MVP continues to talk but Kurt tells him to shut up and says it should be Tommy Dreamer vs. Lashley in a New York City Street Fight. How about that Lashley? MVP talks up the game to Dreamer and, out of nowhere, Lashley attacks Dreamer. Dreamer falls. Lashley stomps on him and the bell sounds.

    Cena is back tonight as he readies for his rematch. Hogan, Flair and HBK will start Raw this week!

    Pre-Raw Commercial

    Cena is back tonight as he readies for his rematch. Hogan, Flair and HBK will start Raw this week!

    Raw Starts

    WWE Hall of Fame Forum

    Cole introduces Hogan to the ring. He comes out in red and yellow, minus the feather boa. Flair follows suit, and heads to the ring in a dapper suit. HBK out in a cowboy hat, a Remington t-shirt, jeans and a black blazer, as always looking like he got dressed at the last moment. They all sit at an announce table in the ring. Cole says they will discuss Cena vs Lesnar. Cole says that for those unaware, Brock defeated Cena for the WWE WHC. Last week Cena invoked his re-match clause at NoC.

    Cole – HBK, what do you think are Cena’s chances winning back the WWE WHC at NoC?

    HBK – As much as I’d love to be long winded, but I’m not. With all due respect, his chances are not good. It’s ain’t happenin’.

    Flair – He got the holy hell beat out of Michael.

    HBK – Now look, I think, especially this panel here, the three of us know a man comes to a crossroads where he needs to make a decision. We all made it, wasn’t easy, but we made it anyway, and I think Cena is at that crossroads, and maybe it’s time to say when.

    Hogan – Let me tell you something brother. When it’s your time, you know it’s your time. John Cena’s time’s not up, he can still go. (mixed)

    Cole – Ric, by your earlier statement, it sounds like you agree with Shawn Michaels’ assessment?

    Flair – First of all, I do agree with Shawn, but I have to say that all three of us think the world of John Cena. He’s the franchise, a 15 time WHC! That’s right, 15 times, and he is the franchise, like it or not. But do I want him against Brock Lesnar at NoC? I don’t think so. I don’t feel it.

    Cole – Hulk, your prediction? Cena or Brock Lesnar at NoC.

    Hogan – I’ve gotten to know Cena on a close, personal level. This hustle, loyalty, respect, this isn’t a marketing logo, it’s not a marketing logo. This is really John Cena. He’s got heart, he won’t stop. So I’m rooting for Cena all the way on this one.

    Flair – Whoa, I’m rooting for Cena too.

    HBK – This isn’t a personality contest. Everybody likes John Cena. It doesn’t change the fact that he hasn’t got a chance.

    Hogan – Wait a minute guys, I saw the first match in Chicago. Brock dominated Cena, beat the hell out of Cena, but Cena found a way to win!

    HBK – I don’t mean to interrupt you, but obviously, I’m going to. John Cena, you just said it, nobody takes a beating like that and comes out the same man! He’s not the same. It’s that simple.

    Hogan – Before you interrupted me, I said he took a beating, but he got his hand raised. This is the rubber match. They’ve each got a victory. Some way, somehow, Cena will find a way to get his hand raised brother, that’s all I’m saying.

    Flair – You don’t believe that.

    HBK – You don’t believe it, he don’t believe it, and I certainly don’t believe it, and these people don’t believe it, and the reason is it’s unbelievable.

    Hogan – I’ll tell you something you can believe, John Cena’s a different animal, (Cena’ music hits) and he’s got something to different…

    #14 WBA heavyweight contender Shannon Briggs (56-6-1, 49 KOs), stopped a fighter named Cory Phelps (16-7-1, 8 KOs) in the 1st round last Saturday night at the Ring of Dreams Boxing Gym, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA.

    Briggs knocked out the balding 30-year-old Phelps with a right hand to the head to win the interim WBC Latino heavyweight title. In a little over a minute of action, Briggs knocked Phelps down three times in the round with head shots. After the 3rd knockdown the referee finally stopped the slaughter.

    The fight could have been stopped after the first knockdown because Phelps was down on his side on the canvas and looking badly hurt. Instead the referee calmly waited until Phelps slowly picked himself up off the canvas before he let the fight continue.
