411’s WWE RAW Report 12.29.14

December 29, 2014 | Posted by Tony Acero


411’s LIVE WWE Raw Report 12.29.14

It’s the last RAW of the year and with one tweet, Daniel Bryan has the world like….


Sidenote: You will have to forgive any shortening of matches or typos. I’m a bartender, and for the first time ever, I cut my damned finger.

Let’s hope I survive!

We start the show with Edge’s retirement being recapped. If this is foreshadowing for Bryan, get your tears ready…

We are informed that Edge and his “boyhood friend” will be hosting RAW, and are told to get our cameras ready. Edge and Christian are introduced right away. They come down to Edge’s music.

Christian is first to speak. He is excited to be here for the last RAW of 2014, He thinks they should send the year off with a bang, and do RAW E&C style. He has decided that there will be a very special Peep Show with….Edge cuts him off, says he thinks it should be The Cutting Edge. Christian disagrees. Edge says Peep Show sounds like perverts in 1920 would pay a nickle to watch. Edge wants to regroup. He wants to show why they are the best damned tag team in history, and do the first ever Cutting Edge Peep Show, with the first guest being the self-proclaimed future of the WWE, Seth Rollins. He wants to put the name in perspective though, and says that if tonight Rollins will go one-on-one with….Roman Reigns then there’s a pop. Like if Christian says Rusev (BOO!) in a Champ vs Champ match with Dolph Ziggler(YAY!) Christian says they’ll be completely naked…

Edge says no one wants to see that. Christian says maybe just Lana. Christian wants to bring the audience back. He wants to know who would like to see…Daniel Bryan? YES! Edge wants to give Washington DC with a special treat….HERE COMES THE POSE!!

Is that a Zayn shirt, Edge? haha. Nice.

Edge and Christian are about to pose but


Cole brings up the attack on Jericho and how this does not bode well for Edge and Christian. Heyman introduces himself to the Peeps and Edgeheads of the world. He can’t help but wonder why a man with a broken neck and a man with far too many concussions to wrestle again would swim in the shark-infested waters that are inhabited by the biggest, most unmerciful predator in the WWE Universe, Brock Lesnar. Heyman tells Edge and Christian to make a move. But one bad hit or smack across the face and either one of you could end up in a wheelchair forever. He wants to reassure them; Brock has no desire to break the neck or end the career of two men whose careers are already other. No, Brock wants to penetrate the virgin neck of someone like….John Cena.

Kinky, Heyman…real kinky.

At the final conflict, the last battle, the final Cena vs Brock match…

Hereeeeee’s Johnny!

Cena holds his NEVER GIVE UP towel up then throws it, which is funny considering what throwing a towel usually signifies.

Brock is in the ring alongside Edge and Christian. Brock smirks. Heyman sulks. Edge sneers. Christian sneezes.

The only reason why Cena doesn’t knock Brock clean into 2015, is so that Brock doesn’t use it as an excuse. Cena uses “ya savvy,” and I hate him for it…Cena has a gift and a resolution. He resolves to remove the title from Brock’s shoulder, and his gift is for Heyman. He grabs Heyman. Brock attacks. Cena gets him on the shoulders. Brock hops off then leaves the ring. Cena removes his shirt. Heyman holds Brock back. Brock isn’t very happy. He has the title, and holds it up for the world to see.

-Commercial Break-

Match 1: Champion vs Champion

What we missed was a catapult into the turnbuckle. Dolph is back up, he hits a jawbuster onto Rusev, but Rusev no sells it after a bit. Dolph runs out. Rusev walks up and Dolph hangs him up.

GREAT match with a shit ending that I should have seen coming…
RATING: ***1/2

Rusev stops a bit. Dolph rolls. Rusev sees Dolph prone under the ropes. Rusev locks in The Accolade, using the ropes! Dolph taps. Refs try to break the hold, but Rusev won’t listen. FEED! ME! MORE! Ryback runs in and hits a hard clothesline to Rusev! Rusev rolls out of the ring. Rusev leads a FEED ME MORE chant. Rusev is up and he and Lana had to the back. Ryback helps Dolph up like he’s an older brother, and I’m not sure if I like that, but can’t fully understand why.

-Commercial Break-

When we return, Ryback is still in the ring. He wants to say a few things to us. There is a lot we don’t know about him. His first WWE Live event was when he was 12, and he was a guest bell ring. That’s when he decided he wanted to be a star. 10 years ago, he got his start on Tough Enough as The Silverback. We get a video of Al Snow eliminating “Ryan Reeves” from Tough Enough. Ryback says after that, he lost his dream job and fell into a deep depression. He didn’t talk to his family for a year. He got a shot at some bbq joint working 12 hours a day, in a negative state, and more depressed than ever, returning to an empty apartment with only a stack of Mania DVDs to remind him of everything he lost. Then one day he found a book called The Secret that talked about Laws of Attraction and almost right away, he got back on track. He was re-signed then made his debut with The Nexus. Another video package that actually shows the spotlight on Ryback in case we confused him with Justin Gabriel or Heath Slater, you know…

Everything was going great; he was 28 with his dream job and everything was picture perfect until he broke his ankle in 2010. He then broke his leg all the way up to his knee. We see a scar to remind him of how lucky he is to be in the WWE ring today. After two bad surgeries and three doctors telling him he would never wrestle again, Ryback was born and he returned.

Extensive video package this time around. Ryback stands today to tell Rusev something. This isn’t a USA vs Russia thing…this is going to be one big guy vs another big guy thing. If there’s one thing we need to know about him, is that he takes negative things that people say, and he eats them. When it’s all said and done, and he looks at all these negative things and turns them into positive. So he’s got one message for CM Punk Rusev: FEED ME MORE!

A little out of place, but if they’re serious about Ryback, then this was a good way to show it.

-Commercial Break-

Back to the show, and The Bellas are making their entrance. Looks like we’re gettin Nikki vs Natalya, or something to that notion. Recap of last week where Nikki was knocked off the apron.

Match 2: Nikki Bella vs Natalya
Nikki with a press onto Natalya, hitting some hard rights. Natalya reverses it and gets some rights of her own. Natalya with a spinning clothesline. Nikki on the apron. Natalya knocks her off, but Tyson is there to catch her! He seems a bit smitten….a bit. Natalya with a baseball slide to Nikki! Nattie goes outside the ring and tosses Nikki back in.

Brie goes to yell at Tyson, distracting Natalya, allowing Nikki to attack Natalya, and set up for the Rack Attack. Pin for 1…2..3!!
Official Result: Nikki Bella
This seemed about as inspired as the wrestlers involved.

Oh, there’s the point:

Cole ends the segment with: “Let’s see how things play out on Total Divas this Sunday on E!”

Backstage, Miz is talking to Damien. Out of nowhere, Naomi comes in and hugs Miz hard, saying Thank you. She wants to speak in private. Mizdow excuses himself. Naomi says that she spoke to Miz’s producer, and thanks to Miz, he wants to meet up with Naomi to discuss future projects. Naomi says she knows that Miz has issues with Jimmy, but she wants to say thank you and she appreciates how he helped her. Miz is taken aback by this, it seems.

Official Result: The Usos
A pretty damned good match, in my opinion, even if – again – the result wasn’t what I wanted.

Lawler in the ring. He congratulates The Usos. He wants to ask them how it feels to end 2014 as the Tag Team Champions. The Usos says it feels good, it was the year of The Usos. They have a lot of celebration. He says they got JR’s BBQ and invites King. He wants to bring Johnny Manziel…

King asks about Naomi and him being on the same page. Jimmy says that they are always on the same page. They played Miz and it felt damned good. Miz reiterates that The Usos “played” The Miz. Damn, I thought King was leaving…

Cole says that Bryan’s tweet is relating to a “Career-defining moment.” King says that he is concerned and that Bryan may join the ranks of Edge and Christian, which means he won’t be.

Video package about The Shield and Seth Rollin’s eventual turn to highlight the importance of tonight’s match.

-Commercial Break-

We are back, and Cesaro is in the ring, sitting in the corner with a mic and a towel over his head. He wants to get a few things off his chest. 2014 should have been his year. He won the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at Mania, and now all of a sudden, he is being told that he doesn’t connect. He doesn’t, though, he delivers. Every single time he steps into this ring, he delivers. And connect with who? Us? The Universe? He doesn’t care about connecting with any of us, or the pageantries, are the pyrotechnics, or fancy elaborate entrances. All he cares about is what he does inside this ring, and there is no one who holds a candle to him when he steps into the ring. If there is anyone that doubts what he is saying, make his day and try him…


Barrett loosely mocks DDP haha. Barrett says Cesaro may not care about connecting, but he assures that there will be something connecting tonight, and that’s this bullhammer with Cesaro’s shiny little head.

Backstage, Cena is reminiscing on Edge taking Cena’s title with Christian. They bring up beating each other in their hometowns. Christian reminds Cena of when Edge went to his dad’s house and slapped him around. haha. Christian then leaves. Cena is serious face now. He remembers that; when two guys who would never have amounted to anything but got a chance, and left their lives out there to prove that they belong and that they were the best. Cena thanks Edge. He respects him. They shake hands and hug it out. Cena tells Edge to be careful out there.

A little slow to start, with waaaay too long a rest hold, but Reigns continues to prove that he isn’t as one-note as people think.

Cole sells this situation as extremely serious, as apparently, the announce table crushed Reign’s leg.

-Commercial Break-

Backstage, Rollins calls Big Show his man then says thanks. Rollins wants J&J to celebrate. Tonight, Rollins will propose a new year’s toast, and he’s going to invite John Cena to it. Tell the world.

Recap of Wyatt vs Ambrose starting at Hell in a Cell.

Anyway, there will be an ambulance match on RAW next Monday between Bray and Dean. Speakin of Bray, here he is. He wants sto speak of a place where life both begins and ends. Everything must come full circle eventually, and both he and Dean have reached the point of no return. Zoom out, and he is in an ambulance. This, says Bray, is where their great journey ends. It’s too late, says he, and they will not be able to resuscitate Dean because he’s already dead. Bray alone has his soul. Bray closes the door, says he has his soul, then the ambulance leaves.

Backstage, Daniel Bryan is hugging R-Truth, slapping hands with The Usos, and pondering bearded fellow thoughts.

-Commercial Break-

Back to the show, and Bryan is here. Solid response from the crowd. He says that it’s an honor to come out and be here for the last RAW of 2014, but it’s always an honor to be in the ring. Every single time. Who would have thought that a small kid from Aberdeen always labelled a B+ player could have main evented Wrestlemania? No one…except us. Thanks to Bryan, he got the opportunity to beat Triple H, Randy Orton, and Batista, all in one night to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship! YES! Chant.

That opportunity was given to him by us and he can never repay us for that. Five days later, he married the woman of his dreams and that was the greatest week of his life, then everything changed. Two days later, Daniel Bryan’s dad died. Bryan wasn’t there for him, because he was here wrestling. Then a month later, he was injured and he needed surgery. They couldn’t fix him, and all he could do was sit at home on his couch and watch, and all he wanted to do was be in this ring because being in front of us was the only thing that could take the pain away. This is what he loved and what he has dreamed of his entire life. He’s getting a bit teary-eyed. He doesn’t think there is anyone who cheered louder than he did when Dolph sent The Authority packing. It was a great moment, but it hurt because he couldn’t be there. The doctors didn’t have any answers, he talked to friends and family, and even talked to Edge. You get to a point when you have to make a decision of whether or not….


You get to a point where you have to make a decision as to whether all of this is worth it or not. And because we have supported him his entire career, he made the request to make this announcement in front of all of us. Is his career over?


That is NOT the announcement that he came here to make!! He is ready to fight! He is ready to compete! And will he be in the 2015 Royal Rumble?


Backstage, Christian is playing the Kazoo!! haha. Miz and Sandow come, and Christian see that maybe they’re upset cuz Christian isn’t playing his theme music. Miz stops them, Christian says Miz needs a tic-tac. Miz wants a rematch for his belts tonight. Edge brings out a muppet looking like Edge. Edge says Miz gets his match. It’s not for the titles, though, and it’s not against The usos…but it is next.

Sandow, before leaving, gives the muppet the ol “I’m watching you” motion. haha.

-Commercial Break-

The Miz and Sandow are in the middle of the ring, awaiting their opponents…and here they are…THE ASCENSION

Match 6: The Miz and Damien Sandow vs The Ascension
Bell rings and we’re starting with Conor and Miz. MIz tags in Sandow quickly, and Conor hits a high knee to Damien. He attacks the back then drags Sandow to the corner. Tag to V. Double shoulder to Sandow then a whip. Sandow gets the foot up, though, then hits a clothesline. Whip is reversed, Sandow tries to attack Conor, but Conor no-sells, and Victor hits a hard clothesline to Sandow. Tag to Conor, who drops Miz off the apron.
Both men up. We get the Fall of Man double team move. Pin for 1…2…3!!!
Official Result: The Ascension
Another tag team on the main show. I wouldn’t call it “very impressive,” but nice to see em.

Backstage, Renee wants to talk to Rollins. Rollins says he feels so good, he wants to extend another invitation…to Brock Lesnar.

-Commercial Break-

We are back. Edge and Christian area already in the ring. They introduce Seth as General Zod 2000, The Walking Pile of Suck, Seth Rollins.

Rollins is all smiles. He sits in between Edge and Christian, saying it’s a great night. Edge says Seth is pretty chipper, what’s with the champagne? He calls J&J The Geek Squad. Rollins says that’s not very nice, and before we start, he wants to say this is an honor to be on the first ever edition of The Cutting Edge Peep Show. This is special for him because they are like heroes to him. Rollins brings up Hardyz and Dudleyz and Chairz. He calls them heroes. Edge says he appreciates that, but he doesn’t believe it, seems kind of condescending, actually. Christian calls it lame. Rollins says they are way too cynical, but he gets it. It’s a time for introspection and reflection, but who has had a better year than Rollins? He stands up, brings up Money in the Bank, becoming the new standard bearer, is worldy recognized as the future. Who has had a better year? Edge and Christian stand. Rollins also won a Slammy. Edge says that he’ll take a stab in the dark and say Cena, Sting, Daniel Bryan, Ziggler. Rollins didn’t come out here to reflect on all of his accomplishments, instead he wants to talk about the last month and how difficult it has been since Survivor Series. He has been a party pooper, and he doesn’t want to be that guy anymore. No. 2015, that Seth Rollins is gone. He wants to celebrate the new Rollins but cannot do that yet. He first wants to invite…The Big Show!

Big Show lumbers down. Rollins introduces Show. New Year, New Us. haha. Oh Rollins. There is one other guy Rollins wants to be out here to join them in his toast. He introduces John Cena.

Cena doesn’t come out. His music doesn’t hit. Edge says that Rollins is trying to do what Edge and Christian did, but doesn’t have any charisma. Jamie Noble removes the stools as if I can’t see him. Rollins says he is better than Edge and Christian. Rollins says he didn’t want to bring Cena out to propose a toast, no he wanted him to come out because he wants something from Cena. Rollins demands Cena to come out. Cena no sells. Rollins says that if Cena doesn’t come out, then Rollins is forcing his hand, and that leaves him no choice but to force his. Of course, Rollins attacks Christian. Edge pushes Rollins, and Big Show and J&J circle Edge. Edge is wide-eyed…well, wider than usual. Edge is surrounded. Show goes for the chokeslam, then turns Edge around and works the arm down. Show pushes Edge down, pushing his head into the MITB briefcase, setting up the Curb Stomp. Rollins yells for Cena to come out to save the man he “respects.”

Here’s Cena. He stops at the edge of the ramp. haha, I said “edge.” Rollins says that Cena knows what Rollins wants, and if Rollins doesn’t get it, Edge’s neck will be broken. Cena removes his hat. Rollins tells him not to take the chance. Cena removes his shirt. Rollins says that if Cena cares, he’ll stay right there. Cena runs forward, then stops. Rollins tells ihm to stop. This is a husband he has under his boot, a father. Edge has a little kid, and if you want him to ever be able to play with that child, then Cena will give Rollins what he wants. Rollins wants it.

Cole chimes in, Rollins wants The Authority back. Oh fuck….

Rollins tells Cena to test the waters if he doesn’t believe him. Christian is apparently dead. Edge is still prone. Rollins says that Edge is praying that Cena would save him fro mwhat he is about to do. Rollins calls him a phony, and says to prove him wrong. Rollins finally says it: “Bring The Authority Back.”

Cena scoots forward, so Rollins raises his voice, says Cena has made his life hell, he will find no guilt in doing this. Cena tells Rollins to stop. Just stop. Ok. Just stop. He says Ok. Seth makes Noble grab a mic and head to the outside. Cena on the mic.

“I Bring Back The Authority.”

Cena screams it again. Rollins removes his boot from Edge’s head but Big Show is still holding him down. Rollins says thank you, but still goes for the Curb Stomp! Cena rushes in and stops him with a spear, then Big Show enters and grabs Cena. Show tosses Cena in the corner. KO Punch to Cena! Big Show stands tall. Rollins in the corner. Cena on his knees. Curb Stomp to Cena!

At the top of the ramp, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman head out. Just as Rollins and Show head up the ramp, the music of The Game hits, and he and Steph come out with champagne glasses and smiles. They cheers to us then raise their glasses.

Happy New Year.

End Show

May all of you fucks have a great one! See you on the other side of the calendar!
