The Results


  • Dean Ambrose def. Sheamus via Pinfall

Second place for match of the night goes to Ambrose vs Sheamus. Despite Randy Orton serving as an outside distraction, the match delivered on hard hitting action from beginning to end.

  • R-Truth def. King Barrett via Pinfall

A match set up simply to push their feud along with R-Truth going over on Barrett.

  • Kevin Owens def. Dolph Ziggler via Pinfall

Owens vs Ziggler was definitely match of the night. Before the two tore it up in the ring together, Owens delivered a promo about taking out Cena that solidified him as a serious danger to Cena’s US title reign. And while WWE are still struggling with what to do with Lana, Dolph Ziggler is still stealing the show with whoever he steps in the ring with. A great match between the two.

  • Kane def. Randy Orton via Pinfall

A decent match with an ending that showed off Kane’s power with the Authority. I’m surprise it took this long for Kane to change one of his matches while it was still in progress. It would be interesting if this were to become a normal thing for him to do in order to gain wins.

  • The Miz def Big Show via Count Out

Just more setup for their eventual triple threat match. The Miz may be the smallest person in the feud, but this segment showed that he is the most manipulative out of the three. A great way  to sell the strengths of all three men.

  • The Bella Twins def. Paige via Pinfall

The Bella Twins walked in to a room basically full of the Divas roster and intimidated them enough to leave Paige by herself. Absolutely no one wanted a piece of them. I’m not sure where WWE is going with this angle. And at this point, I really don’t care. I just want to see other Divas in action as well. It’s a shame their entire roster revolves around one performer and her sister.

  • Neville and the Prime Time Players def. New Day via Pinfall

For some reason, Neville seemed like he fit with PTP. I’d like to see them team up more often to take on New Day. The Prime Time Players and New Day have brought life back in the dying tag team division. I’d like to see the two teams go at it for a while before eventually moving on. Because so far, they’ve struck gold with this feud.


Seth Rollins paraded around most of Raw bragging about his victory the night before. It was great to see him in top heel form. But it all came crashing down on him once he came face to face with the beast, Brock Lesnar. The return of Lesnar was a great way to end Raw, and the beginning of an amazing feud. Just the idea of the promos to come in the next few weeks between Paul Heyman and Seth Rollins is enough to get excited over. And while most of the non wrestling segments like Bray Wyatt’s promo to Reigns and the Authority drama fueled the show, the wresting this week felt like Raw was finally getting back in to it’s groove. This was an actual good show all around. And the final events of the episode definitely built anticipation for Seth’s reaction next week.
