Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. It's the RAW recap from last night's show. It's the last RAW of 2014 as the year draws to a close this Wednesday. RAW took place live in our nation's capital, Washington D.C. Edge and Christian were the sheriff's in town as they served as the acting General Managers. How will WWE close out 2014? Read on and find out for yourselves!!
- In Ring Segment with Ryback: Ryback talks about growing up a wrestling fan, being on Tough Enough, missing his dream of wrestling, being depressed, Nexus, breaking his leg and how lucky he was to make a come back. Ryback throws out a challenge to Rusev.
- Backstage Segment with The Miz and Damien Sandow: Naomi hugs The Miz and thanks him because a producer wants to meet with Naomi. She appreciates everything The Miz has done, while putting up with Jimmy Uso's jealousy.
- In Ring Segment with Cesaro: Cesaro says 2014 should of been his year, mentions winning the Andre The Giant battle royal at Wrestlemania 30, doesn't care about the fans, or fancy ring entrances, all he cares about is wrestling and no one can hold a candle to Cesaro. I'M AFRAID I'VE GOT SOME BAD NEEEWWWWSSS!! Bad News Barrett is back and we have an impromptu match!
- Backstage Segment with Luke Harper: Harper says he's a nightmare come to life and wishes us all sweet dreams.
- Backstage Segment with John Cena, Edge and Christian: Cena and Edge talk about their past feuds, Cena says Edge was one of the decent guys in the company, Cena hugs Edge and tells him to be careful tonight.
- Backstage Segment with Seth Rollins and Big Show: Rollins thanks Show for what he did and Rollins is looking forward to the Cutting Edge Peep Show later.
- Dean Ambrose vs. Bray Wyatt in an "Ambulance Match" is announced for next week's RAW 2015 kickoff show.
- Backstage Segment with Edge, Christian, The Miz and Damien Sandow: Miz demands a rematch with The Usos for the tag team titles. Edge gives them a match but it's not a rematch for the titles and it's tonight.
- The Ascension make their RAW debut against The Miz and Damien Sandow: The Ascension dominate with Miz and Sandow getting a little bit of offense in. Konnor and Viktor hit the "Fall of Man" on Sandow and score the pinfall for the debut win.
I want to say that tonight's RAW was pretty good. Ziggler and Rusev were used properly, both looking like legit champions. The debut of The Ascension was good, however, not sure the fans were into them like the NXT fans are. The Usos, 2-time tag team champions now. Brock Lesnar could've earned his paycheck a little bit more tonight, in my opinion. Countering a "AA" than staring down Cena was pretty weak. Daniel Bryan will be champion again in 2015, no doubt. And Seth Rollins pulled off some A+ sadistic heel moves tonight. BRAVO
And that's a wrap on this week's RAW results, till next time tap or snap.
