The show opened with new WWE Champion Daniel Bryan coming out to the ring. However, before he could say anything, Triple H came out and called out referee Scott Armstrong. They showed the fast count, Armstrong said he and Bryan were in on it together, and Triple H stripped Bryan of his title.
Bryan refused to give it up so Randy Orton came out, hit the RKO, and Triple H took the belt and left. However, Triple H refused to give the title to Orton, and when Orton complained, Stephanie McMahon said he didn't deserve it and he needed to be ruthless again. Then Triple H fired Armstrong.
In the first match on the card, Dolph Ziggler beat Dean Ambrose in a non-title match to earn another U.S. title shot. Fandango beat R-Truth in the next match.
Up next was the return of The American Dream Dusty Rhodes. He came out and cut an amazing promo about how being a dad was the most important thing in the world. Stephanie McMahon came out next and said that she would give either Cody Rhodes or Dustin Rhodes their job back and Dusty could choose.
Rhodes refused to choose between his sons, so Stephanie called out The Shield and The Big Show. She said Rhodes could either accept a beat down by The Shield or a KO punch from Big Show. the 68-year-old Rhodes refused to answer so Big Show knocked him out to save him the beat down. Rhodes went to the hospital.
Next up was a Divas six-man match and Brie Bella won for her team. Rob Van Dam beat Damien Sandow in a squash match next.
In the next match, The Miz fought Randy Orton. The Miz's parents were there and Orton attacked Miz in front of them. This was not a match, but a total beat down so Orton could prove to Stephanie that he was ruthless. He beat The Miz senseless and then finished off by wrapping a chair around his head and dropping a knee on it, sending Miz to the hospital.
Ryback and Curtis Axel push Paul Heyman out in a wheelchair next. Axel leaves and Heyman talks about how he beat CM Punk last night and then says that he owes his life to Ryback. After that, Ryback said no one will ever touch Heyman again.
The next match was a three-team elimination match to determine the new number one contenders to the tag team titles. The Usos beat The Real Americans and Tons of Funk in the match.
In the main event, Daniel Bryan fought Roman Reigns. The other two members of The Shield were at ringside for the match. The match was fantastic and ended when Bryan had the YES Lock on Reigns and everyone attacked Bryan.
They beat him down, but before Orton could do the chair on the neck to Bryan that he did on Miz, the locker room cleared out. Rob Van Dam, The Prime Time Players, R-Truth, Kofi Kingston, Justin Gabriel, Zack Ryder and more were finally standing up and helping Bryan fight off The Shield.
It was a nice change since "WWE Monday Night Raw" normally ends with a Daniel Bryan beat down.
