Each week, the current superstars come together for WWE "Monday Night Raw," but the first week of 2014 was a bit different. On Jan. 6, 2014, "Raw" went "Old School," and it brought together today's superstars along with those of yesteryear for a night that won't soon be forgotten.
Below are the full results for the "Old School" edition of WWE "Monday Night Raw" so if you haven't watched the show yet, stop reading now.
~ WOO! The show starts off with Ric Flair heading to the ring and talking about the night's show before Randy Orton came out to complain about his upcoming rematch with John Cena. Orton keeps on complaining about having to wrestle so much and Flair cuts him off to go off on him.
As Orton threatened Flair, Cena came out and talked a bit before Orton left the ring.
~ The Wyatt Family, including Daniel Wyatt (Bryan), to take on the Usos and Rey Mysterio. This was a pretty good back and forth match before Jimmy Uso ended up pinning Luke Harper with a small package for the win. Bryan was ordered around by the Wyatts throughout the match.
~ Big E Langston defeated Curtis Axel which saw the latter get in hardly any offense. Ryback was on commentary for the match and that was just ridiculous.
~ Rowdy Roddy Piper came out for Piper's Pit with his guests, The Shield. Dean Ambrose went back and forth brilliantly on the mic before Piper angers Ambrose. Roman Reigns said he planned on beating CM Punk later on. As The Shield prepared to take out Piper, Punk and the New Age Outlaws made the save.
~ Alberto Del Rio defeated Sin Cara in a fun, but quick match. Once the match was over, Del Rio said he would eliminate Batista from the Royal Rumble.
~ In the back, Daniel Bryan tried to get Harper or Rowan to let him team with them. Bray Wyatt showed up and said that Bryan would team with him next week.
~ The Brotherheood (Rhodes Family) took on the Real Americans in what amounted to a really good tag team match, but it was non-title. The Real Americans actually got in a lot of offense, especially from Antonio Cesaro. Goldust ended up hitting the Final Cut on Jack Swagger for the win.
~ DDP and Booker T were doing DDP Yoga backstage before being confronted by Ron Simmons, and his traditional "DAMN!"
~ The WWE Universe chose Sgt. Slaughter as the legends referee for the match between Damien Sandow and Great Khali. Unfortunately, the WWEU wasn't smart enough to let Arn Anderson do it. This was over very quickly as Khali got the three count from Sarge even though Sandow's foot was on the rope. Sandow argued and Sarge put him in the Cobra Clutch.
~ Paul Heyman brings out Brock Lesnar and wants to talk "old school," but not the legends. Heyman says it means one man reigns supreme, and that is Lesnar, who wants whoever wins between Cena and Orton. Mark Henry eventually comes out but Lesnar puts him the Kimura Lock and "breaks" Henry's arm.
Heyman gets him to let go before they start walking out, but are cut off by the Big Show. The two men stare each other down before Lesnar leaves.
~ Alicia Fox and Aksana took out the Bella Twins in a divas tag match. This was boring.
~ Too Cool (Brian Christopher, Scotty 2 Hotty, and Rikishi) defeated 3MB when Rikishi hit the sit-down splash on Jinder Mahal. It was great seeing Too Cool back on the air.
~ All of the legends came out on the stage, but Bad News Barrett rose above them with his little platform. He spoke on the legends being pathetic for trying to get one more run, and that everyone will soon forget them.
~ Mean Gene Okerlund comes out to shill his hotline, and that's just genius. The New Age Outlaws then come out to introduce CM Punk for his match with Roman Reigns in the main event. This is a great match that saw both the other members of The Shield and the Outlaws get involved, as expected.
At the end, Reigns shoved Punk into Ambrose, who was on the apron, and Reigns hit a spear for the win.
As The Shield celebrated the win, Jake "The Snake" Roberts' music hit to shock everyone. Punk and the Outlaws destroyed The Shield and Punk hit Ambrose with the GTS. Jake got in the ring and put the snake on an out-cold Ambrose.
