WWE Raw results:
1. Cesaro defeated United States Champion Sheamus. This was a non-title match. Paul Heyman distracted Sheamus, allowing Cesaro to hit a German suplex and get the win.
2. Beat The Clock Challenge: Big E defeated Ryback. This was the first “beat the clock” match in a series to to determine who would face Bad News Barrett for the Intercontinental Championship. Big E won with the Big Ending.
- An attempt at a mixed tag team match ended with Summer Rae showing up, kissing Fandango and attacking Layla.
- Stephanie McMahon said that she would not strip Daniel Bryan of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, but that he should show up next week and personally surrender it, as that is what is best for business.
3. Rusev defeated Heath Slater. Rusev won via submission with the Accolade.
4. Beat The Clock Challenge: Rob Van Dam defeated Alberto Del Rio. Van Dam won with a roll-up, beating Big E’s time and taking the lead in the challenge.
5. Seth Rollins defeated Batista. Rollins won via disqualification when Triple H attacked him. After the match, Evolution and The Shield brawled and Roman Reigns speared Batista.
6. Alicia Fox defeated Divas Champion Paige. Alicia pinned Paige with …nothing? She hit a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker, tossed her into the turnbuckles, then slowly dragged her back to the middle of the ring by the hair and pinned her unceremoniously. After the match, Alicia stole Jerry Lawler’s crown and poured a soda on herself.
7. Beat The Clock Challenge: Dolph Ziggler and Mark Henry did not beat the clock. Ziggler hit a Zig Zag on Henry as the time ran out, meaning Rob Van Dam is the winner of the challenge.
- Bad News Barrett attacked Rob Van Dam.
- Adam Rose was interviewed. Jack Swagger interrupted him, and they brawled.
8. John Cena defeated Luke Harper. Cena won by disqualification when Erick Rowan attacked. After the match the Wyatt Family attacked and the Usos ran down to make the save, ending in Wyatt hitting Sister Abigail on Cena and both Usos. Wyatt dragged Cena out onto the ramp and hit an additional Sister Abigail onto the stage, then counted Cena down for ten to put over their Last Man Standing match at Payback.
