- Cutting Edge Peep Show: Seth Rollins, Mercury and Noble are out as guests. Rollins talks about Edge and Christian being his idols growing up. E&C don't believe Rollins as they make fun of Rollins and The Stooges. Rollins wants to celebrate the new 2015 Seth Rollins and calls out Big Show to join him in his celebration. Rollins calls out John Cena next to celebrate but Cena no-shows. Rollins says he's better than Edge. Edge says even if Rollins had a live sex celebration with Big Show he'd still never be as good as Edge. Rollins yells for John Cena to come out, but Cena still no-shows. Rollins says he'll force Cena to come out then. Rollins hits Christian with the briefcase as Show grabs Edge by the throat. Edge gets his face forced down on the briefcase and Rollins threatens to re-break Edge's neck with a "Curb Stomp" unless Cena comes out. John Cena finally runs out but Rollins keeps Edge held hostage and orders Cena to stop. Rollins orders Cena to either reinstate The Authority or else he'll "Curb Stomp" Edge and make him paralyzed.
Rollins reminds Cena that Edge has a wife and a baby and being paralyzed would be bad for their family. Rollins continues to taunt Cena and threaten to paralyze Edge until Cena finally caves in and says "Yes" The Authority can come back. Rollins goes to "Curb Stomp" Edge anyway, however, Cena tackles Rollins for the block, just in time. Cena fights off Rollins and The Stooges but gets hit with the knockout punch by Show. Rollins lands a "Curb Stomp" on Cena, laying Cena out. RAW closes out with Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman, Seth Rollins, Big Show, Mercury, Noble and finally the returning Triple H and Stephanie McMahon all on stage champagne toasting 2014 out and the rebirth of The Authority being back for 2015.

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.
