March 03, 2014, WWE RAW Results
– While I think antagonizing the CM Punk fans is the opposite of what WWE should be doing if they want the chants to die down, there was no way they could get around it on RAW from Chicago. Instead they went with it, and had Paul Heyman come out to Punk’s music as a way to draw heat.
Heyman sat cross-legged in the ring a la pipe-bomb and blamed the WWE Universe for Punk’s departure.
He then introduced Brock Lesnar, but before he could properly address the Undertaker, Mark Henry interrupted. However in the end he got F5ed through a table.
– The Usos def. The New Age Outlaws to become new WWE Tag Team Champions, when Jey hit the Superfly Splash on Billy Gunn.
– Intercontinental Champion Big E def. Cesaro via Disqualification, when Jack Swagger interfered. After the match Cesaro got a Big Ending.
– The Wyatt Family def. The Shield, after Seth Rollins walked out on his team mates.
– Santino Marella & Emma def. Fandango & Summer Rae.
– Sheamus def. Christian, with the Brogue Kick.
– The Bella Twins def. Alicia Fox & Aksana.
– Daniel Bryan vowed to hijack RAW until Triple H accepted his Wrestlemania challenge. The Authority claimed he isn’t worthy and called out Kane for backup, but Bryan gave as good as he got, before referees held them apart.
– Dolph Ziggler def. Alberto Del Rio, after Aaron Paul helped with the distraction.
– Intercontinental Champion Big E def. Jack Swagger via Disqualification, when Cesaro paid him back for earlier. Zeb managed to calm things down for now.
