PPV Fusion: Over The Limit 2011
WWE Over The Limit 2011 starts with an image in memory of “Macho Man” Randy Savage, followed by the titles rolling and R-Truth making his way to the ring for the opening match.
R-Truth tells Seattle not to boo him, and says that they should be booing themselves. He says that he knows that they can’t handle the truth, but he thought that he’d be a good sport and give it to them anyway.
Truth talks about not having a parking spot and having to park with the fans instead, which he isn’t happy about as he says that he deserves a lot better than to be treated like them, and he had to walk in the rain.
He says that it might work for them, but it isn’t his style, and though they might think it’s a coincidence, he assures us that it’s a conspiracy like he said before. Truth says that they are trying to make him crack up as he doesn’t play games, unlike Mysterio who he says comes out with a toy mask, and if he wants to slide in on his spot, then he’s going to show him something – he’s taking his and anyone else’s spot that he wants, and that’s the truth, whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
Rey Mysterio takes on R-Truth in a match which sees Truth get the victory when he hits Mysterio with Paydirt for the 3-count. Afterwards, Truth drinks some water and cools himself down with it, before he smashes the bottle of water across Mysterio’s head to knock him back down, and he then leaves.
Going backstage, Todd Grisham interviews The Miz about how he’s going to live up to his promise to make John Cena say “I Quit” in a way that nobody has ever thought of before, and he says that it will be in a way that everybody has overlooked, just like they overlooked him and said that he would be fired within three days, would lose Money In The Bank, and that he was a fluke champion.
The Miz says that he will prove them all wrong again as he has never quit anything in his entire life, so trust him as he has a game plan and knows exactly what it takes to win. He says that both he and Cena will be saying something at the end of the night – Cena’s will be “I Quit”, and his will be “I’m The Miz-” – Riley interrupts to end the statement with “and the new WWE Champion”.
Back in the arena, after a video recapping the events between Ezekiel Jackson and The Corre, Wade Barrett is pitted against Jackson for the Intercontinental Championship in a match which sees Jackson get the victory as a result of a disqualification.
This is because Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater run down to the ring and attack Jackson when he has Barrett in the torture rack due to this, Barrett retains the Intercontinental Championship. Afterwards, The Corre continue the beat-down and are left standing tall.
Going backstage once more, CM Punk and Mason Ryan enter The New Nexus’ locker room to find David Otunga and Michael McGillicutty on the floor in pain, and when asked what happened, they say that it was The Big Show and Kane.
Punk is happy about this as he believes that it means that they are under the skin of Show and Kane, and though he cares about Otunga and McGillicutty, he cares more about himself and Ryan and winning the WWE Tag Team Championships – before he leaves the locker room however, he tells Otunga and McGillicutty to walk it off.
Back in the arena again, Sin Cara goes against Chavo Guerrero in a match which sees Cara get the victory when he hits Guerrero with what appears to be a botched twisting hurricanrana that makes him land on his face for the 3-count.
Afterwards, Cara celebrates his victory, but shakes his head, possibly to indicate that he isn’t happy about how that ended.
After a video promoting the “be a STAR Alliance” with WWE Superstars and Divas calling to end bullying, Todd Grisham interviews Christian and Randy Orton about exactly what they feel.
Christian reiterates that he isn’t mad at Orton or Teddy Long, or anyone for anything, as he says that Orton didn’t do anything that he wouldn’t do himself. He says that he would probably be freaking out if he didn’t know what he does know, and that is that he is going to win back his World Heavyweight Championship – and he says that Orton knows it too.
Orton calls Christian a hell of a competitor, but he says that though it sounds like a feel-good story, when he fights a feel-good story, there is no “happy ever after”.
Next, Alberto Del Rio makes his way to the ring introduced by Ricardo Rodriguez, and he talks about destiny, which he says that he knows a lot about. He says that he finds the immigration problem disgusting, citing the number of Canadians crossing the border each day to Seattle.
He says that he’s not angry and doesn’t even care, because he knows it’s their destiny to end up in a coffee house in Seattle, complaining about their miserable lives and weather. Del Rio says that people may expect him to be upset because he’s not in the WWE Championship match, but he’s not.
Del Rio says that this is because he knows that he can easily make John Cena of The Miz say “I Quit” with his cross-armbreaker, so he says that it’s only a matter of time before he takes his place as the WWE Champion.
He says that there’s nothing anyone can do as it’s his destiny to become the next WWE Champion – at this point however, Kane and The Big Show make their way to the ring to interrupt. Kane says that he’s already angry because the rapture did not come the day before as he says he was looking forward to it, but if Del Rio doesn’t exit the ring right now, his destiny will be to wind up just like McGillicutty and Otunga, which Show says is a punch in the face.
Del Rio exits the ring and it’s time for the tag team match with Kane and The Big Show taking on CM Punk and Mason Ryan for the WWE Tag Team Championships. The match ends with Kane and The Big Show retaining the titles when they hit Ryan with a double chokeslam for the 3-count.
Next up, after a dream-sequence type video hyping the next WWE PPV “Capitol Punishment”, Brie Bella (accompanied by Nikki Bella) pitted against Kelly Kelly in a match which sees Brie retain the title thanks to Nikki using “Twin Magic” to switch with Brie behind the back of the referee, and then hit Kelly with a jumping facebuster for the 3-count.
After a video recapping Christian’s title win at Extreme Rules and the following events involving Randy Orton and Christian, both men face each other for the World Heavyweight Championship in a match which sees Orton retain the title when he hits Christian with an RKO for the 3-count, after a number of counters between the two against each other’s attempts at their finishers.
Afterwards, Orton celebrates and then is about to leave when he changes his mind and helps Christian up. Christian pushes him away and starts to leave before apparently changing his mind and walking back up to Orton, showing him respect for winning the match, and then leaving.
After a video recapping the events between Michael Cole and Jerry “The King” Lawler which lead to the following match, Cole and Lawler go against each other in a “Kiss My Foot” match where the loser of the match has to kiss the winner’s feet.
Before the match gets under-way however, Cole claims to be medically prohibited from competing as he reads out a statement from his Doctor which states that Cole’s athlete’s foot has become infected, and it would not be safe for either Cole or Lawler as if Cole’s foot was in Lawler’s mouth, he would contract “hoof and mouth disease”, and he hands the note to the referee.
The referee looks at the note before ripping up in front of Cole’s face and calling for the bell to be rung to start the match. The match ends with Lawler getting the victory when he sends Cole through the Cole Mine, breaking it apart, and then rolls him into the ring before he hits Cole with a diving fist drop for the 3-count.
Afterwards, Lawler starts to get ready to get his foot out of his boot when he calls for someone to come down, that person turns out to be Eve Torres, who comes down and hits Cole with a moonsault.
He starts again before once again changing his mind and calling for someone else to come down first too, and this time it is “Good Ol’ J.R” Jim Ross, who comes down and pours J.R’s BBQ Sauce over Cole.
Cole crawls to the ropes before exiting the ring and walking up the ramp, after which he grabs a microphone and tells Lawler that he didn’t lose, as he didn’t and never will kiss Lawler’s foot. Bret “The Hitman” Hart’s music hits and he comes out to stop Cole from leaving before he can kiss Lawler’s foot.
Hart rolls Cole into the ring and applies the Sharpshooter to him, as Lawler sticks his foot in Cole’s mouth to cheers from the crowd. Afterwards, Hart, Lawler, and Eve celebrate as Cole looks disgusted at what has happened to him.
Now, after a video recapping the events involving John Cena and The Miz, Cena and The Miz face each other in an “I Quit” match wherein the only way to win is to make their opponent utter those words.
Before they lock up however, The Miz reminds Cena that there are no rules, and as a result means there are various things that he could do, but also that Alex Riley could do them to Cena too. He offers Cena a chance to just quit now, but Cena tells him “hell no”.
Though Cena gets the upper hand at the start of the match, The Miz and Riley dominate for most of the match, which ends when Cena’s voice is heard to say “I Quit” when Riley holds the microphone in front of him.
The Miz is declared the new WWE Champion, but when the referee leaves the ring to fetch the WWE Championship, he notices something on the floor that he picks up and looks at, before holding it to his ear and then waving the decision off.
Entering the ring, the referee tells The Miz that he heard it and holds Riley’s phone to the microphone and plays the sound of Cena saying “I Quit”, before he restarts the match. Cena immediately takes advantage when he ducks the title shot to the face – The Miz receives it instead – and sends Riley through the announce table with an Attitude Adjustment.
Cena sends The Miz running when he chases him and hits him with a belt, before he applies the STF on The Miz on the stage for the victory, as it makes The Miz say “I Quit” when he is asked by the referee, so John Cena retains the WWE Championship.
Afterwards, Cena celebrates on the stage as Over The Limit goes off the air.
