Posted by Matt Boone January 27, 2014 92 Comments

Big Show vs. Brock Lesnar

Big Show’s music hits and out he comes for his one-on-one match against Brock Lesnar. Some replays are shown of the past few weeks where Big Show and Brock Lesnar had their multiple confrontations. After the videos air, out comes “The Beast In Carnate” to a pretty big pop from the Pittsburgh fans. Lesnar and Paul Heyman make their way to the ring.

Before the bell even rings, Lesnar goes right after Big Show. Lesnar takes Big Show down and repeatedly punches him in the face. Heyman throws a chair into the ring and Lesnar bashes Big Show with it over and over again. Michael Cole points out that the ref hasn’t even called for the bell to start this match yet. Lesnar continues to smash the chair over Big Show’s back. Big Show says some kind of cussword and is bleeped. Lesnar blasts Big Show with another hard chair shot as Big Show tries to get up. Big Show finally rolls out to the floor. The ref checks on him as he slowly rolls into the ring. Lesnar attacks Big Show before the ref can start the match again. Lesnar grabs the chair again and blasts him with it repeatedly. Lesnar yells at the ref to ring the bell. The ref grabs the chair from Lesnar and runs out of the ring.

Heyman hands another chair to Lesnar. The ref finally calls for the bell. Lesnar runs at Big Show with the chair but Big Show catches Lesnar with the knockout punch on the way in. Big Show is still too dazed to capitalize on it and pin Lesnar. The fight goes out to the floor and Big Show is throwing Lesnar all over the place but still selling the attack he took from Lesnar before the match. Big Show is badly selling his arm as the announcers mention that the chair hit him on the arm a lot as he was trying to block it. The fight returns to the ring where Big Show keeps knocking Lesnar down. Big Show goes for the knockout punch but Lesnar ducks and hoists him up. Lesnar hits Big Show with the F-5 and covers him. 1-2-3. Lesnar wins.

Winner: Brock Lesnar

After The Match:

After the match, Lesnar stares at his hands with a crazy look in his eyes. He goes out to the floor and grabs a chair. He slowly walks around the ring on the floor as Big Show is still laid out inside the ring. Lesnar goes back into the ring and blasts Big Show across the back with the chair. And again. And again. Big Show rolls out to the floor. Lesnar comes out after him and blasts him again with the chair. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. He’s hit him with about ten extremely hard chair shots. He hits him in the legs with the chair a few times. Now in the back again. And agian. He goes under the ring for another one and the ref tries stopping him. Lesnar throws the ref across the floor. He grabs another chair and blasts Big Show again. Lesnar blasts Big Show across the arm a few times with a chair and then throws it in the ring. We see a shot of Big Show in the fetal position as Lesnar and Heyman walk away to a chorus of boo’s.

Backstage Interview: The Shield

Backstage, The Shield cut a promo. They talk about how they’ve dominated the WWE since their debut and they will continue to tonight. They say they will eliminate everyone and end up the last three standing and then it will be every man for themselves. Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose argue a bit but Seth Rollins calms them down.

Renee Young Interviews Randy Orton

Renee Young interviews Randy Orton. Orton says he’s going to beat John Cena tonight and send him to the back of the line. Young reminds Orton that Lesnar and Batista stand in that same line. She mentions Bray Wyatt as a possible contender, as well as whoever wins the Royal Rumble tonight. Orton says when you’re on the top of the mountain, that’s how it works. He says Lesnar and Batista are good, but not great. Orton calls Bray Wyatt a “Duck Dynasty” reject. Orton says he’s the true face of WWE. He then calls Bray a derranged hillbilly that sits in a rocking chair. Orton says he’s going to make sure he’s the face of WWE tonight and that it’s definitely not John Cena. Orton walks off.

WWE World Heavyweight Title: Randy Orton (c) vs. John Cena

Michael Cole tells us that up next is the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match. With that said, the video package airs highlighting the history of the John Cena vs. Randy Orton feud. After the video package concludes, Randy Orton’s music hits and out comes the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Orton’s music dies down, there’s a lengthy pause and then John Cena’s music hits. Out comes the challenger to his usual mixed bad reaction from the fans. The bell rings and Lilian Garcia does the dramatic championship match style ring introductions.

After Lilian’s ring introductions a loud “Daniel Bryan” chant breaks out from pretty much the entire arena. The bell rings again and Cena and Orton lock up. Orton takes Cena down with a headlock and applies some pressure once he gets him grounded. Cena fights his way out. A loud “let’s go Cena” and “Cena sucks” dueling chant breaks out as Cena and Orton circle each other. Orton gets Cena down and lays the boots to him. Orton headlocks Cena and takes him down as another loud “Daniel Bryan” chant breaks out from the entire arena. JBL finally acknowledges the chants after they ignored it the first few times. Now some “Yes!” chants break out as Cena starts to fight back. Jerry Lawler mentions that the Daniel Bryan chant is the WWE Universe letting them know that he’s what’s next if they win. Clearly he was told to say that. A loud “we want Daniel” chant breaks out now as the action continues.

Orton gets Cena back down and is working him over on the ground as a random “Randy Savage” chant breaks out. The crowd is starting to get completely out of control. A loud “Y2J” chant breaks out now as the crowd continues to completely ignore the action between Cena and Orton in the ring. Cena nearly gets Orton in a scorpion death lock but Orton fights out of it. A loud “Undertaker” chant breaks out now as the fight goes out to the floor. Orton beats Cena up a bit and then goes back in the ring. Orton suplexes Cena off the apron and back into the ring. A loud “boring, boring” chant breaks out now from the Pittsburgh fans. The crowd is absolutely crapping all over this match.

Meanwhile, Cena knocks Orton over the top and onto the floor. Cena goes out after him. Cena goes to throw Orton but Orton reverses and whips Cena into the ringside steps. Orton throws Cena back into the ring as another very loud “Daniel Bryan” chant breaks out. The announcers are doing their best to ignore the passionate random chants from the crowd. Orton taunts the crowd a bit only to turn into an Attitude Adjustment attempt from Cena. Orton escapes the AA and DDTs Cena down for a near fall. Another loud chant breaks out, but I couldn’t make that one out. Orton stomps away at Cena in the ring. Orton goes to the middle rope and does his pose to taunt the Pittsburgh fans. Cena hoists Orton up and nails him with an electric chair slam. Cena hits the ropes and blasts Orton with a running shoulder-tackle. Cena slams Orton down and smiles before doing the “You Can’t See Me” deal. Orton kicks Cena from his back and avoids it.

Orton gets back up and is stalking Cena. Cena gets up and hits Orton with a neckbreaker. Cena goes to the top but Orton stops him. Cena headbutts Orton down to the mat. Cena climbs all the way to the top and comes off with a flying leg drop. 1-2…Orton kicks out. Cena hoists Orton up for another Attitude Adjustment attempt but again Orton escapes it and counters Cena with a back-breaker. Orton grabs Cena and tries to hit him with his draping-DDT spot off the ropes but Cena shoves Orton out to the floor. Cena goes to slide out of the ring but Orton stops him and this time does hit his draping DDT spot to Cena on the floor.

Orton rolls Cena back into the ring. Orton tries to pin Cena but Cena kicks out at two. Orton goes into Viper mode and starts pounding the mat. Orton goes for the RKO but Cena counters it into the STF. Orton eventually crawls to the ropes and forces Cena to break the hold.

Cena gets Orton down. He does the “You Can’t See Me” deal and hits him with the 5 Knuckle Shuffle. Cena goes for the Attitude Adjustment but Orton grabs the ropes while on Cena’s back. They accidentally bump the ref and Cena slaps Orton in the STF. Cena goes to check on the ref and when he turns around, Orton blasts him with his title belt. Orton grabs the ref and then covers Cena. 1-2…Cena kicks out.

Orton gets in the ref’s face as a “this is awful” chant breaks out. That’s funny. It’s a loud one too. Orton backs up and Cena grabs him and hits him with an Attitude Adjustment. He immediately covers Orton. 1-2…Orton kicks out. That at least stopped the “this is awful chants.” It’s really not a bad match, for the record. Cena goes to pick Orton up but Orton immediately nails him with the RKO. He covers Cena, 1-2….Cena kicks out. A loud “we want Divas” chant breaks out. Orton arrogantly poses to the crowd. Jerry Lawler says the crowd is trying to distract Orton. Yeah, that’s what they’re doing…

Orton sets Cena up for the punt. He runs at Cena but Cena avoids it. Cena goes to hoist Orton up but Orton escapes and counters Cena. Orton slaps Cena in his own STF hold. Cena eventually reverses Orton and now Cena has Orton locked in the STF. Orton reverses that into a pin attempt but Cena kicks out at two. Orton hoists Cena up and blasts him with his own Attitude Adjustment. 1-2….Cena kicks out.

Orton slowly walks over to Cena. As Orton goes to pick Cena up, Cena quickly nails him with his own RKO move. He quickly covers him, 1-2…Orton kicks out. This match is actually pretty damn good, but the crowd is still all over them with boo’s and random chants. Cena sets Orton up on the top rope. He goes up after him backwards. Cena gets Orton on his shoulders on the top but Orton escapes. Cena blasts Orton with a tornado DDT off the top. Cena slaps Orton in the STF again. Orton nearly gets to the ropes but Cena let go just to yank Orton back in the middle of the ring. The Wyatt Family screen thing cuts out of nowhere. When the lights come back on, Bray Wyatt is on the apron. Cena charges him and knocks him off, but when he turns around, Orton hits him with the RKO. 1-2-3. Orton wins.

Winner and STILL WWE World Heavyweight Champion: Randy Orton

After The Match:

After the match, Orton heads out through the crowd. Bray Wyatt, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper hit the ring. Harper blasts Cena with a big boot. Rowan beats Cena up in the corner. Rowan splashes Cena in the corner. Harper blasts Cena with his big clothesline. Harper and Rowan pick Cena up. Bray Wyatt says “behold the creators of the new world” and blasts Cena with his Sister Abigail finisher. The Wyatt Family music plays as they stand over a beaten Cena.

Renee Young Interviews The New Age Outlaws

Backstage, Renee Young is with the new WWE Tag-Team Champions The New Age Outlaws. Road Dogg tells Renee to put a little stank on their intro in the future. Road Dogg does his usual schpiel about “ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls” etc. Renee introduces a replay of them winning the titles earlier tonight. Young says history was made tonight. Road Dogg tells her she’s dittley-daggum right. Road Dogg says they set the record for most tag-title reigns. Road Dogg says the New Age Outlaws do tag-team wrestling better than anyone in this industry. Road Dogg says they’ve got a party to go to and Renee is not invited. He tells Gunn to give her those two words. Gunn says “new champs.”

    • Derp

    • sai3i3ath

      What a beating Lesnar gave Big Show!!

      • booo

        it was soo annoying the was the part i was wanting to see the most and they fuck over the fans with that peice of crap if i paid for it i would demand my money back for that match alone

    • Ryan5060

      My Moneys On Cena And Punk

    • Roger Gumpleton

      So funny no one wants to see randy or cena fight

    • Eddie Pierce

      Haha wonder if jerry dropped that Bryan could be winning the royal rumble since he said he is next for them

    • Coraje187

      WOW another joke match. I knew that randy vs. Cena

    • boooo

      Crap matches crap ending beside bryan only good match so far

    • MR. Willingbaker

      Love how they think the crowds trying to distract randy… hahahahah

    • gg

      we want divas..lol

      • P.P. Johnny

        P.P. Johnny says you’ve got to be kidding???? Cena/Orton was enough torture for one evening. Lol

        • Topsy Krettz

          The Cena vs Orton match was so boring the audience started chanting “We Want Divas”

    • Derp

      Super stoked that Shattered Dreams has returned.

    • Andy

      good grief Nash! who decided that crap?

    • Derp

      I love that nobody wants to see Mysterio. He’s dead weight, I give him a couple weeks before he’s injured again.

      And great…Boretista is gonna win the rumble.

      • P.P. Johnny

        P.P. Johnny says thank you for saying Mysterio is dead weight. Tired of his same old crap.

    • Coraje187

      That Rumble sucked.

    • Derp

      Well that was a good rumble until the ending. Why the fuck would the put that no talent assclown Boretista in the main event? NOBODY wants that.

    • Derp

      They’re not booing him because they dislike Boretista’s character. They’re booing him because he sucks and can’t wrestle.

    • i Am GoD

      well that rumble match was very predictable . that byan vs wyatt match was awesome though

    • Eddie Pierce

      Love how wwe can’t take a hint the people want Daniel Bryan…

      • VIPER1995

        I agree bryan does need to be in more matches and be pushed more but the fact that the crowed booed the shit out of Batista just cuz Bryan wasn’t in the rumble was stupid

        • Eddie Pierce

          Yeah. I just don’t think people want Batista as champ. I like Bryan I really do. I mean he’s my favorite since Chris Benoit, but they are just getting tired of the wwe not listening and I believe that’s why they are now booing all matches and chanting Daniel Bryan, yes, no, and boo..

          • Batista 1995

            I have been keeping up on my wwe news and there’s things in the works for bryan an other supstarts everyone wants to see its just gonna take time for the storylines to play out

      • Joseph Parks

        db sucks

      • me

        they know, the storyline he was in with th authority was pretty spot on. they think letting a has been who came back for money win is better than the best worker in wwe who gets the loudest pops. I

    • me

      wwe needs to open their ears holy shit. i hope the huge boos and no chants pissed them all off

      • Eddie Pierce

        I agree. They really are holding Daniel Bryan back and you know he has to be smiling with all this going on.

        • Derp

          Why would Bryan be smiling at the fact that he should be the face of the company when the company he should be the face of is constantly screwing him over because he doesn’t look like a 300 pound wrinkled leather purse?

          • Derp

            yea true dat

    • HeyamNick


    • P.P. Johnny

      P.P. Johnny says Batista vs Orton main event at WM XXX. WTF!!!!!
      Just put me to sleep now.

      • Jayvonte

        It gonna be Brock leaner vs Batista

    • the man

      that show sucked so badly

    • VIPER1995

      The crowd tonight at the rumble COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY SUCKED!!!! Just cuz u didn’t get Bryan you don’t need to boo the shit out of perfectly good matches

      • Derp

        Good matches? What show were you watching? The only good match was Bryan and Wyatt.

        Every match deserved to be booed for terrible booking.

        • ambrose, rollin, reign

          The crowd ruined the royal rumble match, look like they have something plan for bryan and cena against the wyatt.

          • Derp

            The crowd didn’t ruin the match. The bookers ruined the match by having Batista win.

      • Robert

        This was one of the best crowd’s I’ve seen in a while.

    • Atombender

      That Rumble match was quite boring. Too bad Roman didn’t win. Not to happy too see Batista back. Roman should headline WrestleMania.

    • JBL fan

      JBL was probably my favourite part.

    • Gintoki Sama

      Im disappointed Curtis axel *sarcasm* didn’t appear in the Rumble. Triple H and Stephanie will run WWE to the ground.

    • Jason

      Very predictable.

    • Captncharisma

      This was the worst P.P.V. in a long time. The only thing that saved this P.P.V. was Bray and Bryan.

      • Derp

        After further thought, I fully agree. This whole PPV was horribly booked. They should be ashamed of themselves. The fans gave them reason enough to.

    • Batista1995

      I can honestly see y some of the crowed pleasing superstars r turning on this pathetic wwe crowd

    • SMRaja89!

      WWE has managed to, yet again, create a predictable PPV! They could have created a NEW star and have a GREAT storyline with The Shield with a Roman Reigns Rumble victory. They have dropped the ball on a great opportunity to move the company in a more unpredictable, more exciting new direction. Instead its the same thing. Same stars getting put over the other performers simply because the company does not feel that they are deserving enough of that top spot. I would have rather have seen Punk vs. Cena in the Wrestlemania main event with a controversial finish. HOPEFULLY A CENA HEEL TURN… HOPE! HOPE! HOPE! Instead, we are left with, a more than likely, Orton/Batista main event (Triple Hs guys) PREDICTABLE!!!

    • Batista1995

      There’s plans for the shield and other superstars u want to see more of in the works

      • Derp

        The problem is, is they are booking one of the most boring Wrestlemania main events. Orton vs. Batista? It’s happened a million times before. And Boretista has clearly not learned any new moves, so we’re just going to be getting the same ol shit rather than something new and refreshing. I hope Batista gets injured and can’t wrestle Wrestlemania.

        • Batista 1995

          Batista will not be getting injured that’s like saying hope for the undertaker to be injured and not wrestle wrestlemania just simply ain’t happening

          • Derp

            And you’re sure about that? Wrestlers don’t get injured all the time? Rey Mysterio? Hello? He looked like he hurt his legs the first 5 minutes in the match. Mr Gimpy needs to retire, he’s too old, and the steroids have destroyed his raggedy body.

            • Batista 1995

              I know wrestlers get injured all the time what I was saying is wwe won’t let him get injured and fuck up there biggest ppv dumbass

            • Derp

              Right, because you can prevent injuries from happening. Moron.

            • Derp

              Go to bed, you have middle school in the morning.

            • Derp

              Plenty of wrestlers have been injured before wrestlemania and had their matches scrapped before. So again, go to bed little boy.

          • ugh

            and did you see batista fuck up that spear he hit him in the knee

          • Derp

            Also, comparing a legendary wrestler to a 1 move wrinkled steroid purse is not even close to accurate.

    • hank

      wwe creative has no imagination is getting really really boring

    • why

      why why why so much promise for this ppv just to flot so bad i enjoy the people chants more then the match

    • MegaCompactDisk .

      Triple H booked his friends to win. Outlaws get the title? Orton and Batista win? And they get to headline wrestlemania? I can see X-pac winning the IC title on Raw.

      • P.P. Johnny

        P.P. Johnny wonders if all of HHH’s cronies are coming back, then where is Chyna?

        • Broski

          Chyna is in China

    • Batista 1995

      Batista is around to stay for a while so get use to it ppl even if u hate him he’s still gonna be around for at least two years so u can choose for him to be a heel by booing him all the time pr make him a babyface by supporting him or just being quite

    • Canuck 703

      I was thinking of going to watch @ a near by theater but sounds like I didn’t miss much so I’m glad I stayed away. Last time I went most of the people in the theater were people who shouldn’t be out in public without a parent or caretaker (to put it nicely). There were guys crying, Taking bets. storming out of the theater when their favorite wrestler was eliminated. One kid was climbing on the backs of the seats & doing wrestling moves, He ended up falling off the seats & down the isle stairs & they had to turn the lights on to see if he was ok, The manager took him away & I don’t know what happened to him after that but he did leave under his own power so he couldn’t of been to hurt.

    • Patrick Frisby

      forget that audience there should’ve been more wrestlers involved in it such as brock lesnar,and big show etc everybody was booing batista but batista said he was going to win it and he did and everybody was cheering for him on monday night raw but now they are hating sorry there wanna be duck dynasty daniel bryan but he lost to bray wyatt anyway how could he win so all u guys need to stop hating and good job batista u said it and u did it

      • VIPER1995


        • Derp

          He won because that is who the creative writers wanted to win…not because he said he was going to.

          • VIPER1995

            Do u have to comment on everything I post

            • Derp

              Don’t flatter yourself, I pay no attention to you, nor do I give a shit about what you post or where you post.

        • bluebook

          ., <—These things exist for a reason.

    • FightFan

      I can just imagine Vince, Triple H, and Stephanie in the back with their hands over their ears screaming “I am not listening! I am not listening!” to all of the Yes and Daniel Bryan chants.

    • Finchinho

      WHAT A JOKE OF A COMPANY!!! WWE- Consistantly fucking up storylines and ignoring fans for over 10 years…

      • D

        Yet the fans keep coming back. How do they know the fans aren’t happy when they keep tuning in and buying tickets and merchandise every week?

    • FightFan

      Rhodes Brothers vs. New Age Outlaws: Nothing special but decent.

      Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan: Awesome, but Bryan losing didn’t make much sense.

      Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show: Good for what it was. Chair shots went a bit overkill though.

      John Cena vs. Randy Orton: With the exception of hitting their finishers on each other, boring. This feud has gone beyond being run in the ground.

      Rumble: Good content-wise. Creative-wise, horrible. A waste of two spots that could have been used for Daniel Bryan and either Bray Wyatt or even Curtis Axel. Batista winning was predictable yet extremely unwelcome. Absolutely no one wants to see a continued Orton-Batista feud.

      This Rumble left me with very mixed feelings. Some good matches and a solid rumble, but perhaps the absolute worst booking decisions in recent memory.

    • DBryan

      The Rumble sucked the bryan match was awesome ending of the match sucked the rumble was pritty much the same as last years except for it c omeing down the roman and Batista would have been great to see roman win but ain’t the worst that Batista won that way he can become champ and get his reign as champ done with so someone who deserves to be champ can become champ

    • FightFan

      I believe the loud chant Matt Boone couldn’t quite make out during Cena-Orton was “You both suck!”

    • George Flegel

      WOW, no Daniel Bryan in the Rumble. That was lame. It must have sucked for the guys who were getting booed.

    • Broski

      I agree that Batista should’ve not won the Royal Rumble, but I kinda get it now. Here’s my future prediction…

      Elimination Chamber:

      Brock Lesnar beats Randy Orton to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion

      Wrestlemania matches:

      Daniel Bryan def. The Undertaker

      Brock Lesnar vs. Batista. I don’t have a prediction here yet.

      What do you think?

      • booo

        undertaker streak should never end but he should stop wrestling

    • Rhey Mark Furog

      Vince is losing his mind right now!!!

      If I would booked this Royal Rumble Match it would be:

      Daniel Bryan comes out at #30

      The Last Three Man should be Reigns, Batista and Daniel Bryan

      Then suddenly Brock Lesnar comes out and eliminate Batista to set
      their feud for Wrestlemania 30 The Animal vs The Beast and because Brock
      and Batista want’s a shot at the belt at mania

      Then Daniel Bryan eliminate Roman Reigns to win the Royal Rumble match and Headline to Wrestlemania 30


      Another Scenario for my Road to Wrestlemania!

      Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns will be the last two then The Wyatt
      Family Interferes to eliminate Daniel Bryan but they eliminate Reigns
      instead due to miscommunication, now this would set up Wyatt Family vs
      The Shield at Mania due to costing Reigns his Royal Rumble win!

    • Nicholas Williams

      WOW!!! how shocking WWE.

    • Shorya

      this is the worst PPV in the recent time… Plz “THE AUTHORITY” stop using ur head and go ask Daddy Mr. Vince Macmohan for better story line….

    • srivatsan

      good batista very good

    • shreky123

      what a complete joke that ppv was. i have been a big wwe fan for 30 years and that is one of the worst things i have ever seen. for daniel bryan not to be in the rumble which he shud have won is the biggest joke i have ever seen. wwe is supposed to b loyal to the wwe universe. THAT IS BS. Listen to what the fans want.

    • Petra

      Oh there could ba,6B match at EC – Batista, Brock, Bray, Bryan, Big show and Bo from nxt.. Yes i am joking..

    • Joaoruy

      Seriously, the crowd was ruining the whole PPV. I understand that they wanted Daniel Bryan to have a chance and that the WWE was holding him back, but come on! I wanted to see the Rumble even if Daniel Bryan wasn’t gonna show up and the crowd ruined it!
      I do feel sorry for Daniel Bryan, He’s becoming quite popular with the crowd…But people, try to enjoy what’s to be anticipated and watch what you have, instead of calling out superstars in a match that they weren’t part of.
