A mere 24 hours after WWE "SummerSlam" and the world is still reeling from watching Randy Orton cash in his MITB briefcase and take the newly won title from Daniel Bryan. On the evening of Aug. 19, 2013, Orton was to be officially crowned as champion on WWE "Monday Night Raw," but there were some willing to speak up against it.
~ John Cena started "Raw" by coming out and congratulating Daniel Bryan for beating him the night before. Cena also said that he had to have surgery and would be out for at least four to six months. At this point, he introduced Bryan, but Stephanie McMahon came out first.
Steph ripped on Bryan and said that Triple H did what he had to do. Bryan came out but he was taken away by Stephanie's security.
~ Cody Rhodes defeated Damien Sandow in a much better match than the one they had at "SummerSlam." Not sure where this will go from here, but am sure that it is going to continue.
~ Paul Heyman came to the ring and said how he wants to be friends with CM Punk now and that they can do great things together. Great promo.
~ Dolph Ziggler was defeated by The Shield in a three-on-one handicap match. Ziggler held his own as much as he could, but he ended up being speared by Roman Reigns to lose the match. This was a match set up by Brad Maddox earlier in the night.
~ Alberto Del Rio defeated Sin Cara who looked to injure himself yet again. Del Rio gave a promo saying he was a hero, but Ricardo came out to say that he has found someone else to side with and it is Rob Van Dam. RVD came down and attacked Del Rio and set to give him a frogsplash, but the champion bolted.
~ Zeb Colter delivered a promo before the Real Americans got defeated by the Primetime Players. Antonio Cesaro deserves better than this, but I'm not surprised that Darren Young got the win.
~ The Shield gets another handicap match later as Brad Maddox sets one up with the Big Show. Then, Zack Ryder and Justin Gabriel do a Foot Locker commercial until Fandango interrupts. Then, Ryback bullies someone backstage.
~ Big Show got some big-time offense in early on, but then the numbers were just too much and The Shield got the win. Reigns hit a big spear on Show before The Shield delivered a triple powerbomb to get the win.
~ CM Punk came out to speak with Paul Heyman, who then came out with Curtis Axel. Punk says he is sorry that he didn't beat him down. Axel got into the ring and got destroyed by Punk all the while he stared down at Heyman. Axel actually got some good offense in at times, and it looks like it is leading to an upcoming feud.
~ Bray Wyatt absolutely demolished R-Truth.
~ Primo and Epico are being repackaged as Los Matadores.
~ The Usos defeated Three Man Band in a nothing match.
~ The Miz defeated Wade Barrett by disqualification after Fandango interfered.
~ Vince McMahon came down to the ring with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon as the entire roster stood on the stage and The Shield guarded the ring. They all run down Daniel Bryan again until he came down and was attacked by The Shield, but he got past them. The Shield attacked again as Bryan tried to get to the ring.
Triple H finally told them to stop and got Bryan into the ring. After running him down, Orton hit Bryan with an RKO to end the show.
