This is the WWE Monday Night Raw Recap and Reactions. This contains spoilers!
The Miz defeated Sheamus via pinfall
Dolph Ziggler defeated Fandango via pinfall
The Usos were attacked by The Wyatts during their entrance
Alberto Del Rio defeated Rob Van Dam via submission
Alicia Fox & Cameron defeated Nikki Bella via submission
Big E defeated Cesaro via pinfall
AJ defeated Eva Marie via submission
Bo Dallas defeated the Great Khali via countout
John Cena and Roman Reigns defeated Randy Orton, Kane, and Seth Rollins via disqualification
Who had the under on 1 minute into the show that WWE network would be plugged?
Someone was excited to see Roman Reigns:
Rollins, Kane, Orton. RKO?
Hopefully Miz’s gimmick of protecting his face doesn’t last too long so Tyler Breeze can get called up and pull off that gimmick better:
I hope Triple H and Stephanie’s kids don’t watch because I felt awkward watching the segment of them flirting:

I’m so happy they put Dolph back into the storyline with Fandango-Layla-Summer Rae when it seemed like they were gonna leave him out. Anything that gets him more screen time.
All this talk about a "moneymaker" Must have missed that.. there is only one face that is not only a moneymaker but is also gorgeous
Adam Rose only showing up in backstage segments isn’t a good sign. Hard to believe that WWE is so desperate financially that they have to resort to these backstage ads/segments
The crowd was really hot for the Lana/Rusev and Swagger/Colter segment. Well done. Is Lana the new Vickie Guerrero?
I was shocked WWE is promoting that they’re playing CM Punk’s documentary on the network tomorrow night. Just when the dirt sheets and CM Punk chants were finally starting to let up.
I hope WWE leaves Sting to just the video game. His last few months in TNA were pretty rough and there’s no reason to ruin his legacy by making him wrestle.
Cesaro should be much better off without Heyman as his manager anyway. Cesaro is above Curtis Axel and Ryback who were both Paul Heyman guys at one point. Not a good sign that he lost his first match without Heyman. Have to assume Heyman was talking about when Lesnar comes back for Summerslam when he spoke to Triple H and Steph.
Stardust continues to be entertaining with the backstage segment with goldust
Awesome promo from Chris Jericho. That segment with Bob Barker is one of the few good memories from the guest host era of Raw.
I have no idea who could possibly think it would be a good idea to put Eva Marie in the ring with AJ
Bo Dallas might be the best character in WWE today:
Remember when Ric Flair turned on Evolution in the most unforgettable segment of 2014?
Hopefully Cena handing Ric Flair the World Heavyweight Title means they just stick to the WWE Title from now on.
Bad news that the ref threw up the X when Rollins got hurt that lead to the sloppy finish. Hopefully the injury isn’t too serious.
Tweets of the Night:
Shouldn't Reigns knows where Ambrose hangs out? #raw
