In-Ring Segment: Daniel Bryan, Triple H & Stephanie McMahon

The post-WrestleMania XXX edition of WWE RAW opens up with a Daniel Bryan video package, chronicling his start as a NXT rookie, all the way through his WWE World Heavyweight Championship victory last night in New Orleans. After that, we shoot live into the arena, where literally everyone is doing the “Yes!” chant. Justin Roberts introduces the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Daniel Bryan. His music hits, the fans explode, and out he comes with both of the belts and a legion of fans chanting “Yes!” as he hops his hairy ass down to the ring.

Before Daniel Bryan can even speak, the entire arena goes ballistic with a “Daniel Bryan” chant, complete with the clapping. It goes on for literally a full minute or two. Bryan says, “you guys don’t get tired, do you?” The entire arena starts chanting “No!” Bryan jokes that it’s harder to do the “Yes!” gesture with two heavy titles in both hands now. As Bryan continues to speak, he is interupted with an enormous “you deserve it” chant. A huge one. Bryan says he may deserve it a little bit, but “you guys” truly deserve it. Bryan credits all of the fans and the power they have as the reason he became the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion at WrestleMania XXX.

As another explosive “Yes!” chant breaks out, “The King of Kings” theme hits, and out walks The Authority. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon make their way to the ring, each with a grumpy look on their face. They stay outside the ropes, standing on the apron. Everyone breaks out into a huge “asshole” chant directed at The Authority. HHH says he’s not going to step into the ring because he might do something he’ll regret. Bryan takes that opportunity to get rid in his face and do a big “Yes!” chant with both titles literally inches away from him.

Triple H goes on to tell Bryan to enjoy his moment, because it’s not going to last. He says it can’t last, and as a matter of fact, it won’t even last through the night. HHH says he’ll make sure of it because tonight he’s going to defend that very championship — against him. He says he’s not only going to become a 14-time champion, but he’s going to put an end to “this crap.” He says he’s going to shut everyone up. Triple H says the reality is, this is his show and there’s not a damn thing he can do about it. The Authority leaves, Bryan leads the fans in another “Yes!” chant and then his music plays to end the opening segment of tonight’s show. After that, we head to our first commercial break of the evening.

Backstage Segment: Evolution Returning?

Backstage, we see Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. They talk about how tonight they’re going to end the “Yes!” movement. In walks Batista. He complains about the fact that Triple H gets a shot at Daniel Bryan tonight instead of him. Randy Orton walks in and he complains about the same thing. Stephanie assures them that they’ll get their title shot rematches, just not tonight. She also informs them that they’ll be teaming up tonight to challenge The Usos for the WWE Tag-Team Championships. They talk about how when all of them are on the same page, they are unstoppable, clearly teasing a return of Evolution.

The Wyatt Family vs. John Cena, Sheamus & Big E.

After the backstage segment, The Wyatt Family cut-in happens. Bray Wyatt, along with Erick Rowan and Luke Harper appear on the big screen. “New Orleans, we’re here.” Out walks The Wyatt Family for a six-man tag-team match. As soon as they enter the ring, Michael Cole takes us to another commercial break, but not before revealing that when we return, The Wyatt Family will be in action against the trio of John Cena, Sheamus and Big E.

When we return from our second commercial break of the evening, Sheamus is in the middle of his ring entrance. He joins Big E., who already came out during the break, at ringside. Out next is their tag-team partner for tonight, John Cena. The crowd greets Cena with their usual mixed-bag reaction, which as usual leans more toward the negative. They are chanting something, but it’s hard to make it out over Cena’s theme song.

All six guys start brawling in the ring before the bell rings to make this match official. When the smoke clears, Cena and Wyatt are left in the ring alone. The bell rings and Cena goes to work on the leader of The Wyatt Family. Within seconds, Wyatt drops Cena with a big right hand and begins his offensive domination in the early goings of our first match of the evening.

Lots of back-and-forth action, with the crowd sounding literally insane throughout. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard a crowd this loud during a match. Man. Really, really loud. They are boo’ing literally any offense the babyfaces get, and are wildly cheering anything any of The Wyatt Family members do. On that note, we head to another commercial break.

When we return from commercial, The Wyatt Family are beating up on Cena. The fans are going absolutely nuts. At one point, the entire crowd starts breaking out into song, singing “he’s got the whole world in his hands,” and I don’t just mean a few words, or the chorus, literally the entire song. This crowd is absolutely nuts. Now they’re singing “John Cena sucks” to the tune of Cena’s theme song, without the music playing. Just an organic acopella performance from 20,000 pro wrestling fans in New Orleans. This crowd is something else.

Bray does his back-bridge spot and the fans start chanting “Bray’s gonna kill you.” He gets up, hits Big E. with his “Sister Abigail” finisher and that’s all she wrote, folks. 1-2-3. The Wyatt Family wins the opening match on the show, and the crowd went totally nuts the entire time. Amazing stuff. After the match, we head to another commercial.

Winners: The Wyatt Family

Fandango & Summer Rae vs. Santino Marella & Emma

A Bo Dallas vignette airs as we come back from commercial. After that, Fandango’s music hits and he dances his way out with Summer Rae. The fans are in 100-percent “Fandango’ing” mode. They are singing and doing the hand-gesture like crazy. What an amazing crowd. Out next, to another loud reaction, is the mixed-team of Santino Marella and Emma. It’s time for a mixed tag-team match here on RAW.

The bell rings and Fandango and Santino start things off for their respective teams. The fans break out into another “Fandango’ing” movement. I wonder if this crowd can keep up this level of intensity for two more hours. Anyways, Fandango and Santino tag out, and Emma goes to work on Summer. Within seconds, Emma locks Summer in her submission finisher and she taps out. Santino and Emma pick up the victory. After the match, we head to another commercial break.

Winners: Santino Marella & Emma

      So if WWE takes the belts off daniel bryan.. and orton and batista win the tag titles tonight.. I’m guessing they want evolution back? Screw that Daniel bryan deserves to hold that belt for the rest of the year.. I’d be so pissed if they took it off him in 1 day again..

      • know your role

        Marks! I hate u fans exist! For all u ppl being spoiled brats over taker it was his choice grow up and realize u don’t give that to
        a new comer..to the rest stop thinking they owe u anything be happy u have it cause it could b canceled! So don’t go shooting up schools or ya parents nerds! Grow up and appreciate what these men and divas give u!!!!

        • Bam Bam

          He didn’t say nothing about taker and the streak he was talking about Daniel Bryan hasn’t held the WWE title 24 hours before until after last night.

        • SJ

          No, happiness can’t be cancelled. Though, it definitely has been experiencing many, many episodes of great procrastination and too many delays.

          WWE mark fans are cool!

          But. the real problem is, in WWE…they’ve got Randy Orton being, looking, acting, behaving in a objectionable heelish fashion, Which sucks and isn’t likeable at all! Daniel Bryan being passed off as a babyface, John Cena is the type of guy who gets whatever he wants no matter how anyone else feels about it. NOT FAIR!!! WRONG!!! UNWANTED!!! UNJUST!!!
          You mention that people who watch WWE should stop thinking that WWE owes their fans anything. Matter of fact…the, WWE DOES OWE fans something—-to allow them to regain and get back their own happiness!!!
          WWE has been putting their fans through COMPLETE HELL!!
          WWE fans should be allowed to have Randy Orton be The Viper again like he used to be a few years back!
          Him not being like that anymore sucks and hinders him greatly!
          *Randy Orton SHOULD AND NEEDS TO BE ALLOWED to go back to being the clean-shaven badass Skinhead guy like he was in 2008-2009 and some of 2010!!!!!.
          *Randy Orton STOPS HAVING a latino girlfriend just because IWC smarks wanting him to and he stops being the boyfriend of the latino girl on his twitter.com site.
          * Randy Orton stops having to be romantic with the latino girl he was holding hands with, who he was sitting next to at the WWE Hall Of Fame awards ceremony.
          * Randy Orton gets attacked like Daniel Bryan did by Triple H….by Triple H, Kane, The AuthorityThe Shield, John Cena, or whoever. BUT..he gets pissed and gets revenge on them for bullying him, saying, doing and behaving in objectionable ways towards him, and he shows heart and kicks ass, uses his facial expressions, body language, attitude, etc. and although the WWE and World Heavyweight Championships have unfortunately lost most of their value…..they need to move Daniel Bryan out of the main event title picture and move Randy Orton into the main event title picture.
          My happiness and the happiness of others shouldn’t be cancelled…but, by having Randy Orton being in a romantic type relationship with a latino girl….like he’s doing and going along with at this point in time, that’s just—–it’s EXTREMELY wrong, crooked, corrupted, lacks integrity and is suckfest goddamned no-good crap!!!!

      • RKO Viper Strike

        Daniel Bryan DOES NOT DESERVE to be WWE World Heavyweight Champion!
        FACT: The Viper Randy Keith Orton DOES DESERVE to be champion!!!

      • DJ

        With Brock/Heyman coming up I doubt their gonna get tired anytime soon. And then Bootista/Ortan soon after

        • SJ

          Randy’s last name is spelled: Orton.
          NOT Ortan.

    • BarrrrrrockkkkkLezzznarrr!

      I love Heyman’s Promos!

      • SilverDome

        My favorite part of tonight’s promo was how he showed up Hulk Hogan and made him look like a fool.

    • yes

      Thank god boobtista and orton didnt win the titles right now

      • SJ

        WTF?! Randy Orton’s not allowed to win the championship title?! That sucks and him not being allowed to be the incredibly astonishing, muscular, handsome, adorable looking clean shaven Skinhead basdass guy like he was doing or for him to be The Viper again…. like he was doing back in 08-09 hellacioiusly mother fucking sucks!!!

    • Taio Smalls

      My first Warrior promo and I love it.

    • Callihan Mark

      Didn’t think i’d be saying this for a while. But I can’t wait to see what happens with the diva’s next week.

    • Crazinessssss

      didnt expect paige to win… wow thats actually spectacular

    • Divalicious

      I wanted Tamina to take the belt from AJ, but Paige totally deserved that!

      • George Flegel

        Yeah I would have preferred that.

    • Unknown

      IMO AJ vs. Paige might = Trish vs. Lita just my thought

    • bleek

      Where’s sting???

      • Bam Bam

        At his house I think in Dallas, Texas.

    • Jason Todd

      The muzzles on the shield. Bad Ass.

    • Devo

      Proud to say I was there tonight. My ears were ringing for sometime after. We chanted sweep sweep sweep then thank you broom guy after Maddox made the match and told them to clean that mess up. Followed by a thank you Maddox. It indeed was John cena suuuucccckkks during his entrance as well. Just pure awesome loud non sense. Smaller chants at bootista we’re started I doubt end up on tv like you wear girl pants. So much fun.

    • George Flegel

      Was kind of lame that Paige won the Divas Title on her first night after AJ has been able to beat everyone else. I think it would have been better for her to drop the title to Natalya or one of the Bella instead of a RAW newbie.

      • Doomsday77

        that’s the whole point 90s baby! the story is she got cocky, she got beat…yeah, drop it to some tired diva the crowd hasn’t given a fuck about in years, that’s dumb as hell…it was for shock value, is it really that hard to figure out…?

    • David

      Was anyone else slightly disappointed with this raw? Namely the main event? Best part was Paige winning the title but in comparison to last years raw after mania there is no competition. Hope next week is better

      • SJ

        I was extremely disappointed with the fact that Randy Orton is now supposed to be the new boyfirend of a latino girl. That’s fucked up and wrong! It’s not fair or right for this to be happening! It’s insulting and hurtful to female fans!!!!
