There is less than a week to go until WWE “Night of Champions,” and it’s shaping up to be one excellent event. There are still a few shows to go, and on the evening of Sept. 15, 2014, WWE “Monday Night Raw” took place and brought things down the final road to Sunday’s big showdown when all the gold is on the line.
If you have not yet seen the show or simply don’t want to know the results, then stop reading now as this is a full recap with all the results of “Raw.”
~ Paul Heyman was in the ring to start the show off and mocked John Cena while building up Brock Lesnar. Cena finally came down and learned that Lesnar’s private plane was delayed, but he will show up later. Cena warned that if Lesnar wasn’t there in 80 minutes, he would kick Heyman’s a**. Cena led Heyman to the back in a headlock.
After the break, Cena had Great Khali stand guard on Heyman in his locker room.
~ Chris Jericho defeated Kane in a straight-forward and decent match that included no interference. Y2J was able to get out of a Tombstone and a chokeslam and then hit Kane into an exposed turnbuckle and roll him up for the pin.
~ Jack Swagger defeated Bo Dallas by making him submit to the Patriot Lock. This was a really good match between the two, but a tad too short. Dallas got in some good offense and is really looking like he could make a great heel, of the annoying persuasion.
~ Nikki Bella and Paige defeated AJ Lee and Brie Bella. Nikki pulled Brie off the apron to stop a tag from being made, and that set up Paige to hit the RamPaige DDT for the pin. After it was over, Nikki beat down Brie.
~ Khali broke Heyman’s phone as he tried to escape the locker room.
~ Big Show defeated Bray Wyatt by disqualification after Harper and Rowan interfered. After, Show hit both Wyatts with a chokeslam as Bray sat back and laughed. This wasn’t a bad match until the ending.
~ Sheamus and the Usos defeated Cesaro and The Brothers Dust in a six-man tag. Good action all around and then chaos to finish it off. Sheamus gave the Brogue Kick to Stardust but Cesaro broke it up with a Neutralizer.. Jimmy Uso then breaks that up and Jey hits a flying splash for the pin.
~ Randy Orton says he’s going to beat down Chris Jericho at “Night of Champions.”
~ Cena drags Heyman back to the ring and Heyman berates Cena telling him he won’t beat him up because he believes in being good. Cena then runs down Heyman and turns to leave, but Paul gets one more shot in and it includes Cena’s mother.
Cena pushes Heyman down and out of the ring. This cues Brock Lesnar’s music and he comes out and checks on Heyman. Lesnar German suplexes Cena out of the ring, but he runs back in and starts punching Lesnar until security breaks it up.
~ Naomi defeated Cameron with a crucifix chokehold in a match that no-one cares about anymore.
~ Dolph Ziggler and R-Truth defeat Damien Sandow and The Miz in a pretty fun little tag match. Wasn’t bad at all actually. Ziggler ducked a Miz punch and then hit the Zig Zag for the cover.
~ Seth Rollins talks about how he’s going to defeat Roman Reigns.
~ Roman Reigns defeated Seth Rollins cleanly with a spear after a pretty good, but way too short match. One would think that “Night of Champions” will deliver a longer match, but why give it away for free a week before? Maybe the return of Dean Ambrose a day earlier than expected is in the works.
~ Mark Henry comes out to American flags waving but a dead silent crowd. He talks about being an American and is then interrupted by Rusev and Lana who builds up Russia and berates Henry and America.
After the insult each other some more, Rusev charges the ring and begins to beat down Henry. After a minute, Henry gets the upper-hand but Rusev crescent-kicks him down and Henry powers out of the Accolade. Henry then double-hand chokelslam powerbombs him down before throwing him out of the ring and waving the American flag.
