WWE Raw Results:
– The show opened with Seth Rollins in the ring with J&J Security and Kane. They are interrupted by Randy Orton, and then Roman Reigns. Kane takes exception to Seth Rollins making fun of him, so he himself and Rollins in a tag match against Reigns and Orton, and then will let his opponent after that be chosen by the WWE Universe.
1. King Of The Ring Quarterfinal Match: Bad News Barrett defeated Dolph Ziggler. Sheamus came out to distract Ziggler, letting Wade Barrett get the win with a Bullhammer.
2. Big E (with The New Day) defeated Tyson Kidd (with Cesaro). Xavier Woods helped Big E cheat and hold down Kidd during the pin after a Kidd got hit with a clothesline.
3. Ryback defeated Bo Dallas. Ryback won via Shellshock. Bray Wyatt appeared in the ring to hit Ryback with a Sister Abigail.
4. United States Open Challenge: Heath Slater vs John Cena(c) ends in no contest. Rusev interrupted and attacked Slater before he could reach the ring.
– Seth Rollins thinks it’s unfair that the WWE Universe gets to choose his next opponent. Kane decides the fans will now vote in a poll to choose Randy Orton, Reigns, OR both of them in a triple threat match at Payback.
5. King Of The Ring Quarterfinal Match: R-Truth defeated Stardust. R-Truth wins with a Lie Detector.
6. Adam Rose defeated Fandango. Fandango is distracted by Rosa Mendes dressed as a Rosebud, letting Rose hit the Party Foul. She then straddles him and they make out in the ring while Fandango looks grossed out on the outside.

8. King Of The Ring Quarterfinal Match: Sheamus defeated Dean Ambrose via DQ. Sheamus hit a brogue kick on Ambrose, but was then attacked and run off by Ziggler. Sheamus advances in the tournament on the DQ.
– Damien Mizdow recounts his career, says he doesn’t know where he’ll go from here, but now he’ll be doing it as just Damien Sandow. Curtis Axel interrupts, but Sandow mocks and mimics him, then hits him with a People’s Elbow (pretending to be the Rock instead of using the Elbow of Disdain).
9. King Of The Ring Quarterfinal Match: Neville defeated Luke Harper. Neville hit an enziguri, a sunset flip powerbomb, then a Red Arrow for the win.
