Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, 6.3.14: WWE Raw
It's Tuesday afternoon and its another edition of Wrestling Lockup with Brandon. Last night's RAW served as the first live event after Sunday night's WWE Payback. WWE's next event will be WWE Money In The Bank on June 29th. What feuds developed last night? Read the recap below and find out!
Highlights of RAW:
- The show kicks off with Triple H promising that Evolution will give The Shield what is coming to them tonight. Batista interrupts and tells Triple H that he's done fighting The Shield and wants his WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match that he was promised. Triple H says Daniel Bryan is still injured and no one is getting what they want until The Shield is finished. Triple H reminds Batista that he is the boss and what he says goes. Triple H apologizes for getting out of hand with his power but Batista quits. Triple H asks Batista if he's going to run back to Hollywood and if he does he will never work for the WWE again.
- Sheamus teams up with Rob Van Dam and takes on their Payback opponents from last night, Cesaro and Bad News Barrett. Sheamus and RVD pick up the victory. Cesaro and Paul Heyman walk out on Barrett in the closing moments of the match.
- Damien Sandow now dressed like Indiana Pacer, Lance Stephenson, comes out and rips on the Indiana crowd and calls LeBron James the best player of all time. Big Show comes out and knocks Sandow out with the left punch.
- Bo Dallas rips on the Indiana crowd saying that the Miami Heat won because they all "Bo-Lieve". Dallas beats Kofi Kingston and stays undefeated.
- Stephanie McMahon announced that Daniel Bryan will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Money In The Bank against Kane in a Stretcher Match. If he cannot defend the title then he will be stripped of the title and it will be put up in the Money In The Bank ladder match. John Cena comes out and stands up for Daniel Bryan and says if Stephanie was evaluated as a boss she'd get a zero. Stephanie makes Cena fight Kane. The match ends in a DQ when Kane refuses to let up on Cena in the corner. Kane and Cena brawl after the match until WWE officials separate both men.
- Adam Rose stays undefeated with a pinfall victory on Jack Swagger.
The Wyatt Family continued their feud with The Usos as Harper and Rowan faced Jimmy and Jey in tag team action. The Wyatt's pick up the win.
- Goldust teams with Sin Cara in his rematch with Curtis Axel and Ryback from Payback. Cody Rhodes hand picked Sin Cara to team with his brother tonight. Axel and Ryback are victorious.
- Rusev and his manager Lana announce that Rusev has been given the Russian Hero Award and Golden Star Award by Mother Russia. The Russia national anthem played and confetti fell from the rafters as the fans booed and chanted "USA".
- Main Event of the evening was supposed to see Roman Reigns going one on one with Randy Orton. The Shield came out together and said they won last night because they are close like brothers unlike Evolution that didn't work well together. Randy Orton comes out with Triple H who has his sledgehammer in hand. Rollins grabs a steel chair as The Shield are ready to go at it with Evolution again. Triple H says one thing he does best is adapt. Last night was plan A and tonight is plan B. Out of nowhere, Rollins connects with chair shots on Reigns and Ambrose, turning his back on The Shield. Triple H, Randy Orton and Seth Rollins drill Reigns and Ambrose with chair shots over and over. Rollins hits the "Curb Stomp" on Ambrose and Orton hits an "RKO" on Reigns. The show closes out with Triple H, Randy Orton and Seth Rollins celebrating as the new Evolution.
