Grinnin’ Barrett

BOSTON – In this historic city, nearly 240 years ago, a group of men rebelled against the tyranny of the English establishment. Those American colonists would eventually go on to overcome their British oppressors. During Raw’s 900th episode celebration, however, it would be the Englishman who would prevail in the end.

Jack Swagger def. Evan Bourne

Jack Swagger proclaimed himself a “conquering hero” for returning to Raw as a former World Champion. Fair enough. But now, it was time to back up the boasts by facing Evan Bourne. In the battle of height versus flight, “The All-American American” toppled his feisty foe as SmackDown newcomer Alberto Del Rio observed from the comfort of his sleek Bentley automobile.

After the match, the suave Del Rio recounted his physical onslaught of Rey Mysterio on SmackDown before undertaking a similar beatdown of Bourne. Mercifully, Mark Henry wasn’t about to let it go down like that. The World’s Strongest Man saved the high-flyer and chased “rico suave” back up the ramp.
