After Raw went off the air last night, David Otunga was left in the ring with the babyfaces. Kozlov and Cena held him in a corner and Big Show Irish-whipped Henry into Otunga, who then took a big chop and chokeslam from Show, Cobra from Santino, Starship Pain from Morrison, and an Attitude Adjustment from Cena. Show wasn’t happy or he hadn’t had enough because Otunga was rolled back in the ring for another chokeslam. [Thanks to reader Jefferson]
