It’s been 24 hours since the events of WWE “Money in the Bank,” and now the fall-out is coming and there were some big-time surprises for “Monday Night Raw.” The night after on June 30, 2014, there were some new feuds started, some old ones continuing, and some surprising returns that no-one would have ever expected.
If you have not seen the show yet or simply don’t want to know the results, then stop reading now.
~ The show starts off with The Authority coming out and talked about all that happened the night before. John Cena ended up coming out, and it all boiled down to Cena defending his newly won title in a Fatal 4-Way Match at WWE “Battleground” in July.
Triple H then put Cena in a match tonight against Kane and Randy Orton with his partner, the other man in the four-way, Roman Reigns. Trips said if Cena survived at “Battleground,” there is a Plan B and out came Seth Rollins.
~ Seth Rollins defeated RVD in a pretty good match. The match was a very good back-and-forth show that ended with Rollins hitting the curb stomp for the pin.

~ Rollins was being interviewed by Renee Young when Dean Ambrose came on the TitanTron. Ambrose gave an incredible promo in which he said that every time Rollins tried to cash in his briefcase, he would be there to blow it up.
~ Rusev and Lana came out to be all anti-American, and this brought out Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger to show the world a “Real American.” Swagger ended up getting the upper-hand on Rusev when he tried a sneak attack, and the crowd powerfully got behind Swagger and Colter.
~ The Wyatt Family defeated the Usos and Sheamus. This was a really good six-man match with a lot of action and some big-time spots. The ending came when Bray hit a chokeslam on Sheamus and allowed Rowan Harper to hit the big clothesline on Jey Uso for the pin.
~ Stephanie McMahon put Nikki Bella in match against the Funkadactyls.
~ Bo Dallas gave a random promo hoping everyone can hope for Bad News Barrett and Daniel Bryan, and that everyone should “Bo-lieve.”
~ The Funkadactyls quickly defeated Nikki Bella. Cameron and Naomi argued after the match.
~ Bad News Barrett is going to be out of action for a “couple of months” so there will be a battle royal at “Battleground” to crown a new Intercontinental Champion. Paul Heyman came out and said Cesaro will win that battle royal.
~ Kofi Kingston defeated Cesaro during the commercial break, and that was just odd. As the show returned, Cesaro destroyed Kofi all over the ring and slammed him into the posts, announcer’s table, and barricade.
~ Damien Sandow, dressed as Vince McMahon, came out and announced he will be in the battle royal at “Battleground.” Steph didn’t like it so she made a match for him with the Great Khali, and Khali one after one big chop to Sandow’s head.
~ The Miz returned and asked the world if they missed him and then said he could have been a huge movie star, but came back to WWE for the fans. That brought out Chris Jericho making his return and hitting the Codebreaker on The Miz.
Jericho was enjoying himself until The Wyatt Family appeared and destroyed Jericho. Bray Wyatt hit the Sister Abigail on Jericho and left him laying in the ring.
~ Dolph Ziggler defeated Fandango after interference from Summer Rae. She made out with Ziggler which upset Fandango, and it allowed Ziggler to hit the Zig-Zag for the win.
~ Stardust and Goldust defeated Rybaxel in a rematch that was almost exactly the same from the night before.
~ Paige came out to the ring to say how she really is worthy of being a champion and she wants everyone to know that. She was soon interrupted by a returning AJ Lee, who asks for a match. Paige finally gives in and the match starts. AJ makes quick work of Paige and rolls her up to win her title back.
~ The tag match was going pretty well between the team of Randy Orton and Kane and the team of John Cena and Roman Reigns before it just totally broke down. Eventually, Orton and Reigns brawled to the back while Kane and Cena fought outside the ring.
The ref finally called for the bell and Kane delivered a Tombstone to Cena. Triple H signaled for Seth Rollins to come cash in his briefcase but Dean Ambrose ran out to take down Rollins. They brawled through the arena and to the back.
Kane grabbed a chair and went into the ring after Cena, but Reigns showed back up and speared the life out of him. Reigns then stared down Triple H as the show ended.
