Be back here tomorrow for the Best and Worst of WWE Raw column.
WWE Raw results:
– The show began with John Cena addressing the challenge from Brock Lesnar last week and being interrupted by Paul Heyman. This led to Cesaro showing up to stand up for Heyman and challenging Cena to a match (despite no longer being a “Paul Heyman Guy.”)
1. John Cena defeated Cesaro. Cena pinned Cesaro after an Attitude Adjustment from the second rope.
– AJ and Paige had an in-ring confrontation. Paige assured everyone that she and AJ were still friends. She “accidentally” said the word “crazy,” causing AJ to attack her.
– Triple H and Stephanie McMahon attempted to address Stephanie being arrested during last week’s show but were interrupted by Chris Jericho. Jericho tried to drop the old “trash bag ho” line on Stephanie but was stopped by HHH. Seth Rollins attacked Jericho from behind, and a match was made for later in the night.
Note: Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt was also made official for SummerSlam.
2. Dolph Ziggler and The Usos defeated Rybaxel and The Miz. Ziggler pinned Ryback after a Zig Zag.
3. R-Truth defeated Bo Dallas. Truth rolled up Dallas for the three, ending Bo’s undefeated streak. After the match, Bo snapped and assaulted Truth, planting him with a double-underhook DDT.
– Lana and Rusev continued their “which country is better at things” problem with the United States and, by proxy, Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter. Swagger and Rusev brawled a bit and set up a flag match.
4. Adam Rose defeated Damien Sandow. Sandow was dressed as an astronaut. Rose beat him almost instantly with the Party Foul.
– Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton didn’t happen. Orton attacked Reigns as Reigns made his entrance, assaulted him for several minutes and gave him two RKOs onto (and then through) the announce table.
5. Diego defeated Fandango. Fandango was distracted by Layla, Summer Rae and El Torito, leading to a roll-up loss.
6. Naomi and Natalya defeated Cameron and Alicia Fox. Naomi tapped out Cameron to a new leg scissors submission to get the win for her team.
7. Chris Jericho vs. Seth Rollins went to a No Contest. Or possibly a DQ victory for Jericho. The Wyatt Family showed up from out of nowhere and beat up Jericho.
– Brie Bella agreed to drop the assault and battery charges against Stephanie McMahon if she (1) got her job back, and (2) got a match with Stephanie at SummerSlam. Stephanie reluctantly agreed, then slapped Brie, causing a pull-apart brawl.
