Here we we are with the next edition of RAW Quickie! We already saw who escaped from Hell (in a Cell) alive, let’s see what happens next! Let’s take it to the ring…
- Steph and H open the show gloating over the Authority’s success at HIAC, namely Seth Rollins…
- …who makes his way out to the ring, followed closely by his stooges.
- Rollins brags about defeating Ambrose at HIAC
- Randy Orton comes out, looking none too pleased about what happened last night
- He gets ready to beat up Rollins, but Triple H stops them…
- …to no avail, as Orton hits Rollins with an RKO (outta nowhere!)
Tag Title Match: Gold/Stardust vs Show/Henry:
- Awesome commentary line: “There’s no second place in America!”
- Match starts off fine, until a blind tag by Big Show leads to an argument between him and Henry
- The match starts going off the rails for Show/Henry until Henry takes Show out with a World’s Strongest Slam
- He picks Stardust up, covering Show with him to allow the tag champs to retain
- After the match, Henry drops Show with not one but TWO more World’s Strongest Slams, followed by a big splash
- Most awkward breakup EVER
Mark Henry Backstage:
- Henry gets questioned about his actions
- “He’s jealous of me!” Okay.
Roman Reigns Interview:
- Reigns is asked how he’s feeling, and says he’s doing better but wishes he could be there
- Asked about the Rollins/Ambrose match last night, he shows a lot of respect for Ambrose…
- …but promises to deal with Rollins as soon as he’s medically cleared!
AJ Lee vs Alicia Fox:
- This is a match that happened.
- AJ Lee picks up the victory, but my FWL points continue to skyrocket to thanks to one Alicia Fox.
- Paige beats up Fox after the match.
- My “out of nowhere” counter is set at 7 at this point. Make that 8.
John Cena In-Ring:
- Cena appeals to the San Antonio crowd, before talking about his #1 contendership and the match against Rollins
- Stephanie McMahon comes out to apparently talk about Survivor Series…
- …and to give John Cena a proposition: join The Authority, who are willing to show him respect
- Cena refuses, which brings out Triple H
- Match announcement: Team Authority vs John Cena and whoever he can find that will support him
- Side Note: the WWE Title is not defended two PPVs in a row. The world is cold, WWE fans, bundle up.
Miz/Mizdow vs Usos:
- Mizdow continues to be the highlight of any of this “stunt double” nonsense.
- Good match overall, though. I’m just saying what most of you already know: Mizdow IS money
- Match ends with Usos pulling off some “twin magic” to get the win
- We see John Cena talking to Dolph Ziggler before commercial…
- …and after the break Kane confronts Dolph with an upcoming match.
Hulk Hogan In-Ring, Brother:
- Hulk congratulates Cena on winning HIAC, and going to face Lesnar for the title
- Proceeds to give the charity shill, brother
- I think the same promo as a week or two ago…brother
Bo Dallas Open Challenge:
- I am still a Boliever, but I am so glad Ryback is back.
- Quick match to show Ryback still has it, putting Bo out of his misery before hitting the Shellshock for the win
Cesaro vs Dean Ambrose:
- Before the match, Dean addresses what happened last night…
- …and proceeds to attack Cesaro, to the point where the match never happens
- Bray Wyatt shows up on the screen, responding to Dean with an eerie message…”Run”
Nikki Bella vs Naomi:
- I literally wasn’t watching. You tell me what happened!
Kane vs Dolph Ziggler:
- Good match here, ending with a surprise rollup by Ziggler…
- …prompting Rollins and the stooges to come out, beating up Ziggler until Cena comes out for the assist
Seth Rollins vs John Cena:
- Good, solid main event from these guys
- With the stooges at ringside, Cena finds himself battling the odds
- Rollins dominates, nearly getting a count out win, but Cena manages to get back in the ring
- Cena with a tornado DDT is somehow a highlight for me
- Match ends with Kane running in to cause the DQ…
- …followed by Ziggler running out to stop Kane and Rollins…
- …followed by the whole roster running down, and eventually everyone brawls with everyone
