As the end of the summer spectacular draw closer, WWE is bringing the big-time action each and every single week. On the evening of July 28, 2014, WWE “Monday Night Raw” took place and there was a lot that needed to be taken care of and settled. John Cena was ready to respond to Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar while Stephanie McMahon invited Brie Bella back to the ring.
If you haven’t yet seen the show and don’t want to know the results, then it’s best if you stop reading now.
~ John Cena started off the show and talked for a really long time about Brock Lesnar and how he will face off with him at “SumemrSlam.” He says that WWE could be in trouble if Lesnar got the title and he’s got to be the one to stop him.
Paul Heyman came out and said that Cena will be conquered by Lesnar. Cena then insulted Heyman, but thaat brought out Cesaro to defend his old manager and set up a match.
~ Cena defeated Cesaro with a second-rope Attitude Adjustment in a really good opening match. Both men gave it their all for the opening match of a “Raw,” and it was well worth all the talking to start the night off.

~ Backstage, Stephanie McMcmahon told Triple H that she can’t get over going to prison last week. Randy Orton came in and complained about getting a title shot and Trips brought up Roman Reigns. Orton said he wanted Reigns but Trips said Reigns was facing Kane tonight.
Orton said he also had problems with Kane and Triple H.
~ Paige hit the ring and said she still considers AJ Lee her best friend and her emotions got the best of her last week. AJ came to the ring and they talked a bit before she attacked Paige and tossed her outside the ring.
~ Triple H and Stephanie came out to the ring and talked more about Steph going to jail before she invited Brie Bella out to the ring. Chris Jericho came out and ran down Stephanie like he did so many years ago. Triple H said he should really focus on Bray Wyatt, but he won’t get him until “SummerSlam.”
That was when Seth Rollins ran out and attacked Jericho with the MITB briefcase. Trips said that was Jericho’s opponent for the evening.
~ The Usos and Dolph Ziggler defeated Rybaxel and The Miz when Ziggler hit the ZigZag on Ryback for the win. It was a good six-man tag with a lot of action, and it included the group of Xavier Woods, Big E, and Kofi Kingston watching from a distance.
~ Bo Dallas beat R-Truth with a quick roll-up and then attacked him after the match.
~ Rusev and Lana came to the ring and she said the American flag was not a faded symbol of what was once a great nation. She tore down President Obama and former President Bush before Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter came to the ring. They spoke of freedom and got the crowd to chant “We The People.”
Swagger hit the ring, but Rusev got the upper-hand and tried to lock in the Accolade, but Swagger reversed it and attempted the Patriot Lock before Rusev finally retreats.
~ Adam Rose defeated Damien Sandow, who was dressed in a spacesuit. Yep.
~ Roman Reigns was walking to the ring, but he was attacked by Orton. Reigns got the upper-hand but then hit the ring and started taking down Kane. Orton got into the ring and took a Superman Punch, but Reigns got chokeslammed by Kane, who then left.
Orton started beating down Reigns and just destroyed him. It ended with Orton taking the announcer’s table apart and then nailing Reigns with an RKO on it. After it didn’t break, Orton hit a second one on it.
~ Diego defeated Fandango after he was distracted by Layla and Summer Rae.
~ Natalya and Naomi defeated Alicia Fox and Cameron in a diva’s tag team match.
~ Chris Jericho defeated Seth Rollins by disqualification. The match was actually going really good and it got to Jericho nailing a mid-air Codebreaker on Rollins when the lights went out. As the lights came back up, the Wyatts were in the ring and destroyed Jericho.
After beating Jericho, Bray Wyatt nailed him with Sister Abigail and all three of the family members stared down at a fallen Y2J.
~ Stephanie McMahon came out to the ring again and finally gets Brie Bella to come out to the ring. Steph says she will treat Nikki fairly and give her a raise, but Brie has some demands as well. Brie wants her job back, but Steph says no unless the charges are all dropped.
Brie says she will drop the charges as long as…Stephanie accepts a match against her at “SummerSlam.” Steph at first says she hasn’t competed in 10 years and can’t do it, but needs to do it so the charges will be dropped.
After they both agree to the match, Steph slaps Brie so hard that she knocks her off the apron and tells her she will “make Brie her b*tch.” Brie slides back in the ring and tackles Steph and begins punching her until Trips and other agents pull them apart to end the show.
