WWE RAW Results (11/18/13): With Videos
Backstage: Randy Orton & The Shield
Backstage we see Randy Orton and The Shield watching Langston celebrating his I-C title win. Orton says let’s hope at Survivor Series we don’t have a new WWE Champion. Orton says The Authority wants The Shield to watch his back at Survivor Series. Roman Reigns says if that’s what The Authority wants, that’s what they’ll get. He says but that means they expect Orton to have their back as well. We head to a commercial.
WWE Divas Musical Chairs
We return from commercial and all of the WWE Divas are in the ring for what Michael Cole just called “Divas Musical Chairs.” Jerry “The King” Lawler is in the ring serving as the host. He plugs Total Divas and mentions that the song “Cruise” will be the song for the game. “Cruise” is a song by Florida Georgia Line, tonight’s guests for RAW Country. The song plays and none of the Divas do anything. Lawler tells them they have to walk around in circles. The song stops and Natalya is the first eliminated. The song continues and when it stops, Alicia Fox is eliminated. “This is the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen” says JBL on commentary. The girls are now pushing each other around a lot instead of walking in circles. The song stops and instead of sitting down, all the Divas start fighting each other. It’s a big Diva brawl here on Monday night. The crowd starts chanting, “Jerry, Jerry.” Some country music starts playing and Lawler says “let’s here it for the Divas.” I guess that’s the end of that segment. What a complete and total trainwreck. “I’m not sure what we just saw, Michael,” says JBL. We head to commercial.
Ryback vs. Big Show
We return from commercial and Big Show’s music hits. Out comes the number one contender to the WWE Championship. Out next, also obviously without Paul Heyman, is Ryback. Two big boys are about to collide here on RAW Country. Cole again reminds everyone that Ryback is no longer a “Paul Heyman guy,” just as he did for Axel during the I-C title match earlier tonight. The “Goldberg” chants break out almost immediately after the bell sounded. The two lock-up and Big Show throws Ryback like a rag doll. Big Show beats the crap out of Ryback in the corner. Big Show “shushes” everyone and chops the hell out of Ryback. Youch. Big Show nails Ryback with a shoulder block and Ryback rolls out to the floor. Back in the ring, Ryback finally gets about five seconds of offense before Big Show starts beating and chopping the hell out of him again. Big Show whips Ryback into the ropes and Ryback comes off with a spear to the leg of Big Show. Ryback is putting the boots to the big man now on the ground. Ryback hits a leg-drop on Big Show for a near fall. Ryback hits the ropes and comes off with a big splash on Big Show. Okay. This is about the third time I’ve heard Big Show calling spots during this match. Too many times not to point it out. Once or twice is one thing, this is ridiculous. Ryback has a headlock on Big Show on the ground now. Ryback kicks out the leg of Big Show and hits him with a DDT while he was on his knees. Similar to what Maddox did to Orton earlier tonight. Ryback slaps another chinlock on Big Show. Yawn. I guess this is the example of WWE putting added emphasis on big guys again? God help us. Big Show finally counters Ryback and both guys are down. Big Show nails Ryback with a few clotheslines. Big Show hits the ropes but Ryback catches him coming off with a big spinebuster. That was pretty cool. Ryback sets Big Show up for the meathook. He runs at Big Show but Show catches him with a chokeslam grab-to-the-throat. Before he can actually chokeslam him, however, Ryback breaks free. Ryback scoops Big Show up and slams him. Ryback calls for the Shellshock. Ryback hoists Big Show up and nails him with the Shellshock. That was impressive looking. He covers him immediately. 1-2….Big Show kicks out. Way to kill a guy’s finish, WWE! Ryback picks Big Show back up and goes for it again. Big Show pushes Ryback off and into the ropes. When he comes back, Big Show nails him with the knockout punch. 1-2-3. Big Show wins.
Winner: Big Show
After The Match: Orton With A Failed Sneak-Attack
After the match, Randy Orton ran in to ambush Big Show but Big Show caught him coming in with a huge spear. Orton rolls out of the ring and cowers back up the ramp while holding his ribs. Big Show stares him down with the death-stare from inside the ring. Big Show’s music hits again.
Backstage: Zack Ryder, Florida Georgia Line & 3MB
Backstage, Zack Ryder is with Florida Georgia Line. He says he’s excited for their performance tonight. In comes 3MB in country attire. They say they know Florida Georgia Line has heard about them. They say good luck following them tonight. They sing a verse from some crap song and walk off all excited. Florida Georgia Line says they’re going to go get ready for their performance.
Backstage: Randy Orton Is Pissed
Backstage, Orton is with a WWE trainer. He tells him to give him some ice. Orton yells asking where The Shield was. He tells the trainer to give him another bag of ice. Orton says screw this and tells the trailer to leave. He says The Shield wants to leave him by himself, he sees how it is.
The Real Americans vs. Kofi Kingston & The Miz
We return live in the arena and Zeb Colter is just getting to his “would you please rise…” portion of his usual speech. Kofi Kingston’s music hits and out he coems. Out next is The Miz. Cole announces a match for SmackDown, which I BELIEVE was The Usos vs. The Real Americans. Didn’t quite fully catch what he said. I’ll find out in a minute and update everyone. The bell rings and Miz and Antonio Cesaro start things off. Cesaro is in control early, beating Miz’s ass all over the ring. Finally, Miz catches Cesaro running to the corner with a clothesline. Cesaro catches Miz off the middle rope with crazy-strength and slams him. Cesaro hits Miz with a backbreaker and tags Jack Swagger in. Swagger picks up where Cesaro left off. Ok, it’s The Real Americans vs. Cody Rhodes & Goldust for the WWE Tag-Team Championships this Friday on SmackDown. Sorry about that! They’re plugging all kinds of stuff for SmackDown and Survivor Series all at once. Kingston tags in and goes to work on Swagger. Swagger ends up beating up Kingston for a while. When Kingston goes to make the tag to Miz, Miz hops off the apron and throws his hands up. He smiles at Kingston. Heel turn. Swagger locks Kingston in the Patriot Lock and Kingston taps out.
Winners: The Real Americans
