WWE RAW Results – February 24, 2014
Daniel Bryan Challenges Triple H Once Again
After defeating Kane, Daniel Bryan gets on the mic. He says he confronted The Authority earlier today. He says Triple H is a coward. He says he challenged him to a match at WrestleMania and he hid behind his wife’s skirt. He says ever since Triple H put on a suit, he has ignored what the people want. The people break out in a big “Yes!” chant. Bryan says there’s an entire arena in Green Bay chanting “Yes!” and demands that Triple H give these people what they want — Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania XXX. His music hits again and he walks off.
Summer Rae (with Fandango) vs. Emma (with Santino Marella)
We see Fandango and Summer Rae backstage. Michael Cole informs us that Summer Rae is in action when we return from the break. On that note, we head to another commercial. When we return from commercial, we see a quick vignette featuring Alexander Rusev and Lana. After it finishes, we see Fandango and Summer Rae dancing around in the ring. Next, Emma’s music hits and she comes out with Santino Marella.
The bell rings and Emma starts doing her little foot-stamping and goofy-ass dancing. Summer shoves her down. Emma shoves her back. Michael Cole plugs Summer Rae being in the new WWE Studios sequel to The Marine and the fact that she’s on season two of Total Divas. Meanwhile, Summer Rae blasts Emma with a big spinning-kick for a near fall.
Summer Rae continues to dominate Emma as the crowd tries rallying behind the former NXT Diva. Michael Cole points out that Summer Rae is trending worldwide on Twitter as she continues to have her way with the latest addition to the Diva roster. Out of nowhere, Emma locks Summer in her “Emma-lock” submission finisher. Summer taps out.

When we return from commercial, The New Age Outlaws and The Usos are already in the ring. Road Dogg gets on the mic and does his usual pre-match promo. Before he can finish, one of the Usos superkicks him in the face. Apparently the bell already rang before he started. The other Uso splashes him off the top and pins him. 1-2-3. The Usos win this non-title match.
Winners: The Usos
Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt
The Shield’s music hits and out comes the big boy, Roman Reigns. Reigns comes out through the crowd, but he’s by himself. As promised, he’s leaving the other members of The Shield behind to battle Bray Wyatt, who promised to leave the rest of The Wyatt Family behind so that they could slug it out one-on-one. During Reigns’ entrance, we head to a commercial.
When we return from commercial, Reigns is standing in the ring waiting for his opponent for this singles match. The Wyatt Family music hits without the “we’re here” intro. Bray Wyatt comes out by himself as highlights are shown of The Wyatt Family beating Cena down earlier tonight. The bell rings and here we go.
Reigns walks to the middle of the ring and waits for Bray. Bray circles around Roman and the two trade a punch. Bray doesn’t like the looks of things so he rolls out to the floor briefly. He comes back in the ring and the two lock up. Neither guy seems to be able to budge the other. Bray finally hits Reigns with a big knee to the gut and headbutts him down to the mat. Reigns knocks Bray down with a big shoulder tackle.
Reigns seems to be in control of the offense now. Reigns launches Bray out to the floor. Bray comes back in and the two trade punches. Bray seems to be getting the better of Reigns now and he is now in control of the offense. A light Husky Harris chant breaks out as Bray continues to dominate Reigns in the middle of the ring.
The fight spills out to the floor. Reigns nails Bray with a huge clothesline. We head to a mid-match commercial on that note. When we return from commercial, the guys are back in the ring duking it out. The fans are getting restless, as a number of random chants have broken out. There’s been loud “Randy Savage” and “Under-Taker” chants thus far.
Meanwhile, Reigns is firing up on offense. He hits a big sidewalk-slam style move on the leader of The Wyatt Family. Reigns calls for his finisher and The Wyatt Family cut-in happens. When the lights come back on, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper are standing outside of the ring. Seth Rollins flies out of nowhere and dives onto Rowan and Harper on the floor. Harper and Rowan have Rollins at their mercy moments later, with the announcers questioning where Dean Ambrose is. Ambrose pops into the picture out of nowhere to make the save.
The guys continue to fight outside the ring while Reigns hits his big Superman punch on Bray in the ring. Reigns calls for his finisher again, however Ambrose runs into the ring and starts beating up Bray. The referee calls for the bell. The guys continue to fight and The Wyatt Family duck out the back door. The Shield’s music hits as The Shield stares The Wyatt Family down from inside the ring.
Winner via Disqualification: Bray Wyatt
Brock Lesnar & Undertaker Showdown
Backstage, we see Paul Heyman giving advice to Brock Lesnar. He asks him not to destroy anything or anyone. He tells him which way the ring is. Lesnar smiles, shakes his head, and starts walking. We head to a commercial break.
When we return from commercial, Aaron Paul from the “Need For Speed” movie (and Breaking Bad) is named as the host of RAW in Chicago. We shoot back live to the arena and Brock Lesnar’s theme music hits. Lesnar comes out with Heyman and the two make their way to the ring.
Heyman talks about tonight being a history-making night for WWE. He says he’s sorry that it falls upon him to inform us that his client, Brock Lesnar, is not in a good mood. He says Orton and Batista should get their title match out of the way and the winner should face Lesnar at WrestleMania. Heyman says when he told this idea to The Authority, they gave him an alternative solution. One that Heyman considers a mere consolation prize. He says they gave him an open contract to face whoever he wants at WrestleMania.
By the way, there is a table and carpet set up in the ring during this segment. Heyman continues to whine about the open contract and not getting a title shot. As they go to leave, the gong hits and the crowd explodes. The Undertaker appears on stage. We see Lesnar staring at him from inside the ring. He slowly makes his way to the ring.
Taker enters the ring. The crowd breaks out in a big “Taker, Taker” chant. The lights come back on. The crowd erupts into an “Undertaker, clap-clap-clap, Undertaker” chant. They stare each other down. Taker looks up at the WrestleMania XXX sign. We hear Lesnar off-mic telling Taker to “sign the damn contract.” Lesnar leans down and signs the open contract mentioned before. Lesnar slaps the pen on Taker’s chest and the crowd ooh’s and ahh’s at that. Heyman gets on the mic and says the contract has been signed and if he wants the match with him he needs to sign it. Taker stabs Lesnar’s hand on the table with the pen and then grabs him by the throat and chokeslams him through the table. The crowd breaks into a “holy sh*t” chant. Michael Cole says “I take that as a yes.” The Undertaker’s music hits again and the crowd explodes again.
That will do it for this week’s RAW.
