RAW opened with new RAW GM Brad Maddox of course. He announced that Del Rio and Ziggler would face off in a re-match from the PPV. Cena then came out smiling like a jackass. Maddox gave Cena the power to pick his opponent for Summerslam cos why not. Cena being the fighting champion said this was stupid so Randy Orton came out. Orton teased cashing in his title shot before Summersalm. FANDANGO then came out and looked really out of place with Cena and Orton. FANDANGO begged Cena to pick him for Summerslam. Yeah that would be great. Orton attacked FANDANGO so they brawled and Maddox made a match between them.
Randy Orton vs FANDANGO: Randy Orton won with the RKO so no shock here.
Dolph was backstage and he was upset with AJ for costing him the title. Dolph broke up with her and AJ look like someone had died as the fans chanted YES.
Mark Henry was pimped out in another suit and said he was making no excuses about his loss at Summerslam. He also wanted John to pick for Summerslam. Shield came out. Henry yelled at them then took off his suit jacket and began to beat them up until the 3-1 advantage took control. They then gave him the Triple Power Bomb.
Maddox was on the phone to Mom when Jericho walked in. Maddox booked a 2001 RAW main event between Jericho and RVD.
Del Rio vs Dolph: AJ fucked over Dolph again well least this time she had a reason to. AJ rung the bell during the match when Dolph was in control. Match was restarted and Dolph lost his edge which led to Del Rio hitting the superkick for the win. After the match AJ slapped Dolph around and Langston ran down and killed Dolph. AJ kissed Dolph and left with Langston.
They showed a graphic for Cenas Summerslam opponent saying he could PICK ANYONE. Alex Riley was included maybe this will be the big chance for A-Ry
R-Truth came out doing his rapping shit again. Thankfully The Wyatt family came out and put us out of our misery. Bray then cut a promo. Truth got back up and had a chair. Bray offered him a free shot and Turth hesitated. Bryan attacked Truth.
WWEACTIVE POLL: Swagger and Cesaro vs either Usos, Two Fat Fucks or PTP
Swagger and Cesaro vs Usos: Well the Usos won for whatever reason. One of them pinned Cesaro.
Sandow vs Christian: Christian pinned Sandow. This baffles me seeing they just gave Sandow the MITB last night and hes still loosing. After the match Cody attacked Sandow
Diva Match: No one cared
Punk came out selling injuries from the ladder match. Punk called out Heyman and Lesnar. Heyman took credit for Punks rise and success because without Paul Heyman we don’t have CM Punk. Heyman then said Punk couldn’t beat Lesnar. Punk said he would hurt everyone in his way until he got to Heyman. Lesnar then came out and brawled with Punk. Punk kept getting back up and going after Lesnar until he couldn’t no more. Brock finished him off with the F5. Punk tried to get up but couldn’t. He refused medical assistance and walked out holding his neck.
Maddox was texting just like Johnny Ace used to in 2011. Then Cunty… I mean Stephanie came in. She asked him how his first night as GM was going. Hunter walked in. They tried to make him feel bad about letting Maddox give Cena power to pick his Summerslam opponent. They said that if Cena picked Bryan it would piss off Vince. They then wished him well.
RVD vs Jericho: RVD won his first RAW match since 2007 with the frog splash. This was fun.
The entire roster was out on the stage. Cena came out and teased picking his Summerslam opponent. He teased Heath Slater, Orton, RVD, Khali and Jericho. The crowd didn’t care they all knew he was picking Bryan and when he said Bryan the crowd chanted YES as did Bryan. Bryan got in Cenas face as RAW ended.
