It hasn’t been a week and we have already seen the top two matches changed at Extreme Rules 2011. RAW from London featured a match that resulted in a big change to the Extreme Rules main-event. John Morrison defeated R-Truth on RAW and will replace Truth in the Triple Threat Match.
Trish Stratus‘ favorite WWE superstar John Morrison has now found himself in the Triple Threat Match at Extreme Rules. Morrison defeated R-Truth and was awarded his spot in the WWE title match at Extreme Rules. The new main-event for the WWE championship sees John Cena vs. John Morrison vs. The Miz. But oh, the WWE isn’t done making changes just yet.
The change is now the second change in less than a week to the two Extreme Rules main-events. Last week WWE world heavyweight champion Edge caught the entire wrestling world off guard last week when he announced his retirement. He was replaced by his former tag team partner Christian as a result of the happenings at Friday Night SmackDown. Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio for the WWE world heavyweight title in a Ladder Match was announced as the new SmackDown main-event.
The news about Morrison comes at a very odd time for the former WWE tag team champion. It was just a little over a week ago when news broke about Morrison being uncooperative with Trish Stratus at WrestleMania 27 over the fact that he felt she cost his girlfriend Melina the spot in the match. Morrison immediately wound up in the dog house as evident by last week’s RAW where he was pinned in a Gauntlet Match. It appears that John Morrison’s “time out” will be a short one as it appears that he has now stolen R-Truth’s spot. According to reports, Truth turns heel after the match and gives Morrison more than a cold shoulder.
Like Morrison or not, I like the match a lot better with him in it as opposed to R-Truth. Morrison has the chance to shine in a cage and may even steal the show, something R-Truth likely had no chance of accomplishing in the match. It also gives the WWE an opportunity to move towards a Miz vs. Morrison feud which has far better potential than R-Truth vs. The Miz.
