If you’d like to know what happened on tonight’s WWE Raw but don’t want to read star ratings and wordy paragraphs to decipher it, With Leather is here for you. Here’s what happened on the January 6, 2014.
WWE Raw results:
– Randy Orton and Ric Flair had an in-ring confrontation. Before it could get physical, John Cena ran out to protect Flair.
1. The Usos and Rey Mysterio defeated The Wyatt Family (Erick Rowan, Luke Harper and Daniel Bryan). This was Daniel Bryan’s debut as a member of the Wyatt Family. He wrestled in a blue, sleeveless jumpsuit. Luke Harper took the loss for his team when he took exception to Daniel Bryan acting on his own and got rolled up and pinned.
2. Big E Langston defeated Curtis Axel. Langston won fairly easily with The Big Ending. Ryback was on color commentary.
– The Shield made an appearance on Piper’s Pit. Piper tried to further the tension amongst the group and they got mad about it, but before they could do anything The New Age Outlaws showed up to protect Piper. It was announced that the Outlaws would be in CM Punk’s corner during the main event.
3. Alberto Del Rio defeated Sin Cara. Del Rio pinned Cara with a superkick.
4. Cody Rhodes and Goldust defeated The Real Americans. Goldust pinned Swagger after The Final Cut.

6. Alicia Fox and Aksana defeated The Bella Twins. Aksana got the pin for her team after a missed dropkick from Brie Bella.
7. Too Cool defeated 3MB. This was the first time Scotty 2 Hotty, Grandmaster Sexay and Rikishi (in pants) had been together on Raw in 13 years. Rikishi won by sitting down on Jinder Mahal’s chest during a sunset flip attempt.
– The WWE Legends that participated in the show were brought out onto the stage, only to be harassed and insulted by Bad News Barrett.
8. Roman Reigns defeated CM Punk. Reigns won with a spear after shoving Punk into Dean Ambrose, who’d climbed onto the ring apron. After the match, The Shield was interrupted by Jake The Snake Roberts. Punk and The New Age Outlaws beat up The Shield and knocked out Dean Ambrose, allowing Roberts to rub a snake all of him.
