8/24 WWE Raw in Cape Girardeau, Mo.: C.M. Punk vs. John Cena vs. Big Show in a SummerSlam rematch, Antonio Cesaro vs. Zack Ryder for the U.S. Title, Wade Barrett vs. Curt Hawkins, Tensai works two matches
Aug 24, 2012 - 11:50 PM


WWE Raw live event
Cape Girardeau, Mo.
Report by Dot Net reader Russell Brown


1. Tyson Kidd defeated Tensai. There were several good spots for Kidd who ended up winning by pin fall. After the match, Tensai grabbed the mic and said lightning couldn't strike twice and he said there was no way he could lose twice in the same place. So he called out anyone in the back to challenge him. Cue music for Big E Langston. 

2. Big E Langston defeated Tensai. The match wasn't much but did have a few spots. Langston won by pinfall.

3. Alex Riley defeated David Otunga. At the beginning and throughout the match, Otunga posed a lot trying to draw a reaction from the crowd. Riley won by pin and the crowd was behind him for the win.

4. Layla defeated Aksana to retain the WWE Divas Championship. Layla scored a pin.

5. Kofi Kingston and R-Truth defeated The Prime Time Players in a street fight to retain the WWE Tag Titles. This was a fan's choice match. Truth came out to his What's Up music and the crowd was super excited to chant with him. Kofi and Truth actually lost the match because Darren Young pinned Kofi while Titus held Kofi's foot on the rope. The PTP celebrated their victory until AJ came out and resumed the match because Kofi's foot was on the ropes. Truth and Kofi immediately won once the match was resumed.

After the match Truth asked the crowd if we believed in Lil Jimmy and then he had the crowd say "accept Lil Jimmy" because Kofi didn't believe in him. Then he did.

Intermission

Wade Barrett came out to a mixed reaction but mostly boos. During his promo, he said he's the toughest fighter ever to be in the ring (really).

6. Wade Barrett defeated Curt Hawkins. Barrett had no problem unleashing his Barrage.

7. Antonio Cesaro (w/Aksana) defeated Zack Ryder to retain the U.S. Title. Ryder had the crowd behind him but ended up losing to Antonio.

8. C.M. Punk defeated John Cena and Big Show in a Triple Threat to retain the WWE Championship. There was a fun moment during Punk's intro. While in the ring, Show told him to hurry up, so Punk mocked him by pumping his hand up like Show often does. All in all, this was pretty much the same match from SummerSlam with a lot of the same spots. At the end, Cena gave Show the AA and then Punk knocked Cena out with the belt and covered Show for the pin.  

After the match was over, Punk gave a respect speech and then tried to shake Cena's hand. Instead he got the AA.

Overall fun show and the crowd was definitely into it.

Biggest Pops
1) John Cena
2) CM Punk
3) Big Show
