  • Raw Thread (July 7, 2014)



    Just days after the United States celebrated Independence Day, the fireworks continue as WWE heads to The Great White North for Raw. In breaking news, WWE.com has learned that Bret "Hit Man" Hart will be in Montreal tonight! Plus, WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena battles Seth Rollins while Canada’s own Chris Jericho prepares to go one-on-one against the brash and egotistical Miz. What else can the WWE Universe expect less than two weeks before WWE Battleground?

    Reigns said unlike some people, when he comes to the ring, he comes with a point. Reigns said Triple H put him in the fatal four-way WWE Title match at Battleground because he thinks it's best for business. He said Hunter thinks maybe he (Reigns) can neutralize John Cena, which he can do, or Kane can neutralize him (Reigns), which he can't. And then Randy Orton walks out with the title. But, he won't.

    Pause for a mix of chants related to Bret Hart and John Cena, apparently. Reigns waited out the chant, then said, "When Roman Reigns is in the house, you damn right Cena sucks," which popped the crowd. Reigns said what The Authority wants is irrelevant and what Orton says is irrelevant because he's the next WWE champion. The crowd popped, then Kane's pyro interrupted. Reigns stood in the ring amused as Kane stood on the stage glaring toward the ring through his mask.

    Reigns asked Kane if he's standing in for The Authority tonight since he's just Triple H's lapdog. No wait, just Randy Orton's bitch. Ooohs from the crowd. Kane slowly walked down to ringside, where Reigns met him with right hands. A brawl broke out ringside, then Kane rolled Reigns into the ring, but Reigns knocked him off the ring apron. The brawl continued into the crowd, where the two men traded blows and control.

    Back to ringside, then back into the ring, which brought out referees to try to separate the two. But, Kane grabbed one of the refs and chokeslammed him. Agents then spilled out to break up the fight. Finlay roughed up Reigns a little bit, then Reigns shoved Jamie Noble aside and speared Finlay in half. Kane wanted a piece of Reigns again, but Reigns dropped him with a Superman Punch, popping the crowd. Shield's music played as Kane retreated up the ramp to the stage.

      The Wyatt Family defeat The Usos, Harper pins Jimmy with a Lariat, afterward, Jey complained to referee Rudy Charles about the officiating because the wrong Uso took the fall.

      Orton and Kane were shown talking backstage. Orton said he would have been right by Kane's side if Reigns did one more thing to him earlier tonight. Kane, not so sure about Orton's sincerity, said the WWE World Title is definitely coming back to The Authority at Battleground.

      Seth Rollins then walked into the shot holding the MITB briefcase. Rollins promised to think twice about cashing in his briefcase if either one of them wins on Sunday. Orton said he is really starting to hate that kid. Kane said not nearly as much as he's really starting to hate Orton.

        Back in the arena, Justin Roberts said the following Divas contest will be conducted with each competitor having one hand tied behind her back, per The Authority. Already in the ring was Alicia Fox. Nikki Bella then came out to face Fox.

        The rope was administered to Nikki first while Alicia waited for Nikki to be tied up. The crowd sat quietly waiting for the pre-match to unfold. When it was her turn, Fox played games with the ref, then eventually just yanked the rope away and kicked Nikki.

        The fight spilled out to the floor as Cole said this is convenient with The Authority involved in the match-making. Alicia continued to beat up Nikki before the ref eventually got in-between Fox and Nikki to prevent further damage. But, Fox jumped back into the ring and roughed up Nikki some more before leaving the ring.

        Rusev was in the ring waving a Russian flag. Lana then addressed Canada, saying the country should just accept leadership from Vladimir Putin. Both looked toward the screen for a while as if they were waiting for something. Lana started to speak again, then Rob Van Dam's music blared over the p.a. system. Lawler said this "young man" has something to say about Rusev and Lana.

          Randy Orton defeats Dean Ambrose, after countering the Jawbreaker Larait into an RKO

          Renee Young brought in WWE champion John Cena to boos. Renee noted Orton just beat Ambrose, so how does he feel about the mounting pressure on his title reign? Cena said he is the biggest target in WWE right now, but that's what this is about being WWE champion. He said a lot of people talk about what's best for business, but he's the symbol for handling business. Suddenly, Roman Reigns slid into the interview space. Reigns wished Cena good luck tonight. Cena brought up Reigns's strong words earlier, then said he doesn't need luck. Reigns said he's going to need a lot of it at Battleground, then walked off.

          Back from break, Fandango was at the announce table to announce his inclusion in the IC Title battle royal at Battleground. Meanwhile, Alberto Del Rio was in the ring for match action. Dolph Ziggler was then introduced as Del Rio's opponent for another round of this match-up.

          Cody Rhodes, as Stardust, talked to himself, then his dramatic brother, Goldust, walked in to talk in riddles about the cosmos. Suddenly, Goldust had the 1990s wig on to enhance the weirdness.

            Fandango was shown walking down the hallway pleased with himself. Layla then walked up to him and asked what that was all about. Fandango said he can't take someone embarrassing him, but Layla wasn't so sure. She said she doesn't know what he would do if Fandango still cared for Summer Rae. They embraced, then Fandango looked longingly across the hallway. There was Summer Rae standing a distance away returning Fandango's gaze.

            Jerry Lawler said he did not think he would be back in Montreal after what happened last time he was in this building - when his heart attack happened. Lawler thanked the crowd and the local hospital for their support, then brought out Bret Hart. Hart walked out on-stage in a dress shirt and jeans, then took the mic from Lawler in the ring.

            Hart waved to the crowd before pausing for a "Thank you, Bret" chant. "Merci," Bret said. He said no matter what happened here in the past, it's always an honor to be back here in Montreal. Hart said he speaks from the heart when he says if he could just have one more match, it would be right here in Montreal. Hart said he's getting the kind of rush he used to get when he was WWE champion.

            Suddenly, Hart's music played again. Out came Damien Sandow dressed as 1990s Hart with the leather jacket, oiled hair, and pink and black trunks doing the open-the-jacket pose. Sandow described himself as "Bret 'the Hitman' Sandhart." Sandow role-played Hart at Survivor Series 1997, then said his one regret was that he was actually proud to be from a third-world country like Canada. But, his main regret was never being in the same ring as the great Damien Sandow.

            Sandow paused before saying he knows talking has never been Bret's strong suit, but Hart punched him in the face before he could finish the sentence. Sandow spilled out of the ring to the floor, then Hart offered a closing line: "No, punching was." Hart's music played, then WWE replayed Hart winding up and punching Sandow in the face.

              Sheamus defeats Bret 'Hitman' Sand-Hart with the Brogue Kick

              Renee Young brought in The Miz, who was sporting cocky sunglasses and a leather jacket. Miz cut off Renee and introduced the contents from a piece of paper. Miz removed his shades and read a letter from a fan, who was so excited when Miz returned, but then that rat-faced, tattooed Chris Jericho interrupted. The "fan" instructed Miz to put Jericho in his place. Sincerely, John Russo. Miz got choked up thinking about what would happen to little Johnny Russo if Jericho ruins his face. But, he's ready to give Jericho his close-up.

                Chris Jericho defeats The Miz with The Walls of Jericho

                The Wyatt video interruption suddenly played. Back in the arena, Bray Wyatt was rocking in his chair atop the stage. Bray taunted Jericho for returning to "save us," but he can't even save himself. He said he will never, evvvvver let Jericho forget that these people now sing to a different tune. Because he has the whole world in his hands.

                Suddenly, Jericho interrupted and told Bray to shut the hell up. "Quiet, Wyatt," Jericho said. He said Bray is right that actions do speak louder than words. And, his actions are this - he's going to come up that ramp and beat his ass. Jericho started to leave, but the interruption played. Back in the arena, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper were standing next to Bray to guard him against Jericho. Jericho contemplated making a move, but opted to stay put

                  The Funkadacytls were in the ring for tag team Divas action. Paige was then introduced to the ring before WWE replayed events last week on Raw when A.J. Lee returned to TV, convinced Paige to give her a Divas Title re-match, and A.J. re-won the title. Paige tried to sell being in a good mood despite dropping the title last week, then A.J.'s music played. But, Paige took the mic and introduced her tag team partner with an over-the-top intro. A.J. pretty much ignored her.

                  Paige & AJ Lee defeat The Funkadactyls, Cameron spent the match doing her nails and lip gloss until she makes the blind tag & is quickly dropped with a Paige Turner to give Paige & AJ the win

                  Cameron finger-pointed Naomi on the head, then a shoving match broke out. They eventually scrapped. It turned into more of a fight than a scrap, requiring a referee to separate them.

                    Back from break, Paul Heyman was in the ring standing next to Cesaro. Heyman noted he is the advocate for Brrrock Lesssnar, who conquered The Undertaker's Streak at WrestleMania. He is also pleased to represent -- Cesaro interrupted and said he can't talk to them in English. Because they're French-Canadians, but they don't even speak French. Cesaro said the French can't stand them, and neither can the rest of Canada. Kofi Kingston, sporting taped ribs, came to the ring to face Cesaro in a re-match from last week.

                    Kofi Kingston defeats Cesaro after countering a Roaring Swiss Uppercut into a roll up

                    Cesaro again attacked Kofi after losing to him. But, Big E. hit the ring and chased off Cesaro before his music played. Big E. and Kofi stood tall in the ring while Cesaro and Heyman recovered to the stage.

                    John Cena was sitting down thinking things over, then Seth Rollins walked in for a civilized conversation between two adults. Cena listened to Rollins offer him measured jabs, such as Orton or Kane taking the WWE Title from Cena at Battleground - if he doesn't cash in MITB beforehand. Cena listened to his speech, then said he thinks Rollins is full of crap and a bigger deal than he really is after getting a big contract and a futuristic jumpsuit. See you out there.

                      El Torito was in the ring for the pre-main event comedown segment. Bo Dallas was then introduced in his soaked t-shirt. Before the match started, Bo said he never ducks a challenge because he simply bo-lieves.

                      A victory lap for Dallas, including "accidentally" running over Torito when he did not see him recovering on the outside and not breaking stride. And there was Torito face-down on the floor to wrap the segment.

                        John Cena defeats Seth Rollins by dq, Cena had the STS on when Kane's pyro suddenly shot off.

                        Cena released the hold as Kane walked down the ramp toward the ring. Cena backed right into Randy Orton, who attacked Cena from behind. No bell to be heard for a DQ, as the ref apparently bailed when Kane hit the ring.

                        Orton, Kane, and Rollins beat Cena until Roman Reigns's music played. Reigns walked down the ramp instead of through the crowd, and Reigns promptly dropped Kane with a Superman Punch. He also blasted Orton in the ring.

                        But, Rollins popped Reigns with the MITB briefcase. Then, Cena took a briefcase shot to the head. Rollins contemplated cashing in the briefcase, but how could he cash in when the previous match never ended? Another ref emerged to receive the case from Rollins, but Dean Ambrose showed up through the crowd to spear Rollins to the ground. Ambrose ran Rollins up the ramp to the back as Cole house-cleaned on no MITB cash-in again this week.

                        Back in the ring, Cena was waking up as Randy Orton slid into the ring. Orton thought he had Cena ready for an RKO, but Cena sprung on him with an AA. Kane wanted a chokeslam on Cena, though, only to take a spear from Roman Reigns. The Shield's music played as Reigns and Cena stood tall in the ring. Reigns then yanked Cena's hand in the air for the faces to stand tall, but Cena was taken aback by the gesture, not trusting anyone right now. "Spear, spear" chant from the crowd, then Cena returned the gesture by holding Reigns's hand in the air. Cena and Reigns came face-to-face, then Reigns held Cena's hand in the air to boos. Cena sold slight annoyance as he raised Reigns hand again as the show ends
