Less than 24 hours has passed since WWE "WrestleMania XXX" and now "Monday Night Raw" is coming live, and the atmosphere in the Smoothie King Center was electric. On April 7, 2014, the WWE has to touch on a few issues from Sunday night and the main ones are that of Daniel Bryan winning it all and Brock Lesnar putting an end to the iconic streak of the Undertaker.

If you have not yet seen "Raw" and don't want to know what happened, then stop reading now as a full recap and all the results are below.

~ Daniel Bryan came out to start the show and got a huge ovation. He spoke of his journey and the creation of the "YES" chant. Triple H and Stephanie soon came out and advised Bryan that he would put the titles on the line tonight against...Triple H.

~ Backstage, Triple H told Batista and Randy Orton they would get their rematches later, but tonight they are teaming up against the Usos for the tag-team titles.

~ A huge six-man tag took place between the Wyatt Family and John Cena, Big E, and Sheamus. The crowd was entirely...entirely behind the Wyatts as they even sang, "John Ce-Na Suuuccckkkss" to the theme of his music. Next up, the entire crowd loudly sang, "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands."

As for the match, Cena actually became the "face-in-peril" as he took a huge beating from all the Wyatts. Once Sheamus got tagged in, he got in some offense, but then got taken out along with Cena. Big E took a Sister Abigail from Bray Wyatt for the pin.

~ Emma and Santino quickly defeated Fandango and Summer Rae even though the crowd was seriously into the latter duo.

~ Brock Lesnar came out with Paul Heyman and he was not greeted well. Heyman spoke of the broken streak and literally got the fans to go from hating Lesnar to loving him in less than five minutes. Lesnar said not a single word and it was an incredibly great promo.

~ The Usos against Batista and Randy Orton went to no contest as the heels destroyed the Usos and left them laying around the ring.

~ Rob Van Dam returned to WWE for a match against Damien Sandow. After little offense from Sandow, RVD hit all his traditional moves including the Five-Star FrogSplash for the win.

~ Bad News Barrett finally got his work visa issues cleared up and was able to cleanly defeat Rey Mysterio in a good match. Barrett dominated the match and was able to get away from Rey's high-flying moves to take the win with a big-time elbow. The crowd again loved the heel (Barrett) and hated the face (Rey).

~ Alexander Rusev finally made his in-ring debut and he was introduced by Lana so that he could face Zack Ryder. This was an absolute squash and saw Rusev win by actually using the Camel Clutch.

~ Ultimate Warrior came out to the ring to thank the fans for his WWE Hall of Fame induction and simply to thank everyone for supporting him. He put on one of his old jackets and the facepaint mask and gave a short, but good speech.

~ AJ Lee came out to the ring with Tamina to talk about her long reign and being the "savior of the diva's division." Paige then made her debut and AJ was happy to give her a match for the title. AJ took immediate control but Paige reversed a submission hold with a low Angle Slam/Sweep of sorts and won the belt.

The crowd absolutely went insane for Paige. There has not been that much crowd-love for a Diva's match in a long time.

~ Hulk Hogan came out to present the Andre the Giant Memorial Trophy to the winner of the "WrestleMania XXX" battle royal, Cesaro. Zeb Coulter calls Cesaro his guy, but Cesaro swerves everyone and calls himself a "Paul Heyman Guy" and brings out his new manager.

Jack Swagger attacks Cesaro and destroys the trophy. Brad Maddox then makes a match for right now.

Swagger had the upper-hand for a good bit of the match, but Cesaro soon came back. When he attempted to go for the big swing, Swagger left the ring and got counted out.

~ Daniel Bryan comes out for the main event and then Batista and Randy Orton do too. They decimate Bryan before Triple H even enters the arena. Kane then comes out and delivers a big chokeslam to Bryan. Triple H finally came to the ring with Bryan already out cold in the center.

The Shield came down as Triple H prepared for the pin, but then everyone got in the ring and Trips held them back. Roman Reigns speared Triple H and The Shield surrounded him before Bryan nailed him with a running knee.

The Authority retreated to the back as The Shield stood tall with Daniel Bryan.
