Here are your quick and dirty, editorial-free WWE Raw results for June 9, 2014. The show featured a series of qualifying matches for the (now WWE World Heavyweight Championship) Money in the Bank match as well as a serious sit-down with Seth Rollins about what happened last week.
Be back tomorrow for the Best and Worst of WWE Raw column.
WWE Raw results:
- The show began with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon stripping Daniel Bryan of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and turning the Money in the Bank ladder match into a championship ladder match. Bryan wasn’t there, but they had the belts, somehow. The Authority put Randy Orton into the MITB match without a qualifier.
1. Money in the Bank Qualifying Match: Sheamus defeated Bad News Barrett. Sheamus won by pinfall with a Brogue Kick.
2. Rusev defeated Zack Ryder. Another quick submission win for Rusev.
3. Rybaxel defeated Goldust and R-Truth. Truth was Cody Rhodes’ latest choice for Goldust’s new tag team partner. Goldust lost the match to a Curtis Axel roll-up. Everyone was disappointed.
- Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose beat up 3MB, then cut a promo about how they planned to beat up Seth Rollins later in the show.
4. The Usos defeated Fandango and Damien Sandow. The Usos won with a splash. Damien Sandow was dressed as an interpretive dancer. Before the match, Summer Rae had jumped Layla backstage and poured milk on her. I don’t know.
5. Bo Dallas defeated Xavier Woods. Bo won with a Bo-dog.
6. Money in the Bank Qualifying Match: Cesaro defeated Rob Van Dam. Cesaro pinned Van Dam following a Neutralizer.
- Seth Rollins had a sit-down (and also stand-up) interview with Michael Cole. He said he had to adapt, and that he didn’t sell out, he “bought in.” After the interview, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns showed up, but were cut off by the Wyatt Family. Thankfully JOHN CENA was around to make the save for The Shield, and that’s a thing that is happening.
7. Paige defeated Alicia Fox. Paige won by submission with the PTO modified Scorpion Crosslock. After the match, Alicia beat up Aksana.
8. Jack Swagger defeated Santino Marella. Swagger won with a gutwrench powerbomb.
9. Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and John Cena defeated The Wyatt Family. Roman Reigns pinned Luke Harper with a spear. Earlier in the night, Triple H had promised this would be the last time we’d see The Shield, but nothing else of note happened.
