WWE RAW Results From New Year’s Eve

* The Miz kicks off RAW by announcing that Vickie Guerrero has declared that tonight’s show will have a “Champions Choice” theme, with “all” titles on the line tonight (except for CM Punk’s WWE title) and the champions getting to pick their opponents.

* The Miz hosts MizTV with his guest, John Cena. Cena starts talking about the holiday season but is interrupted by Team Rhodes Scholars, Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow. Cena points out that Washington Redskins quarterback RGIII, who was featured on WWE RAW several weeks ago,is in the crowd. It’s announced that The Miz and Cena vs. Rhodes Scholars will be taking place next.

* John Cena and The Miz defeated Team Rhodes Scholars in a long match after Cena hit Sandow with the Attitude Adjustment and got the pin.

* United States Champion Antonio Cesaro comes out and cuts a standard anti-American promo. The opponent he decides to defend the US Championship against tonight is none other than: WWE Hall of Famer Sgt. Slaughter.

* US Champion Antonio Cesaro defeats Sgt. Slaughter after hitting him with the Neutralizer. After the match, Cesaro hit Slaughter with a second Neutralizer to add insult to injury.

* It’s announced that later in the show, there will be a special New Year’s Eve toast between Dolph Ziggler and AJ Lee – with John Cena invited to join in on the celebration.

* Later tonight, The Shield will face Ryback in a 3-on-1 handicap match.

* Backstage, Team Hell No announced they will defend the WWE Tag titles against 3MB.

* Kane & Daniel Bryan defeated Heath Slater and Drew McIntyre. Jinder Mahal was at ringside for the match. After their win, Kane & Daniel Bryan mocked 3MB by doing “air guitar” in the ring, which the crowd popped big for.

* WWE Champion CM Punk comes down to the ring, along with Paul Heman and a doctor. The doctor verifies that CM Punk is indeed unable to compete due to injury and x-rays of CM Punk’s surgically repaired knee are shown on the Titantron. Punk says that due to the condition of his knee, his doctor won’t medically clear him to wrestle Ryback in a TLC match on the January 7th RAW, so the match is off. “No Chance” hits – and out comes WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. Vince says it doesn’t matter what the doctor says – a TLC Match will take place on January 7th. Vince questions what CM Punk’s relationship is with The Shield and Brad Maddox and says that if doctors determine that Punk isn’t medically cleared to face Ryback in a TLC match on 1/7, then Paul Heyman will take his place.

* Sheamus defeats Dolph Ziggler by disqualification after The Shield runs down and attacks Sheamus. The Shield stand tall over Sheamus and then exit through the crowd.

* A backstage segment takes place with CM Punk and Paul Heyman. Brad Maddox approaches them and asks Paul Heyman for a job, but Heyman tells him to leave.

* Another backstage segment takes place with WWE Intercontinental champion Kofi Kingston and Wade Barrett.

* WWE Divas champion Eve Torres comes out and says she wants to defend against Mae Young, who is not there. Kaitlyn comes out and says she’ll wrestle in place of Mae Young and winds up attacking Eve in the ring. Eve escapes and runs to the back without a match taking place.

* World Heavyweight champion Big Show defeats Ricardo Rodriguez by disqualification after Alberto Del Rio interfered and attacked Big Show. In a bit of comedy, Del Rio came down to the ring in a suit before the match and Ricardo came out driving a fancy sports car.

* Wade Barrett defeated Kofi Kingston by pinfall to capture the Intercontinental championship for a second time. After the match, Josh Matthews interviewed the new champion. Barrett warned the WWE locker room to watch out for the Barrett Barrage in 2013.

* The Shield vs. Ryback in a 3-on-1 match never officially took place. As Ryback was making his entrance, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns attacked him on the ramp. Sheamus and Randy Orton ran out to make the save and The Shield escaped through the crowd. Ryback, Orton and Sheamus celebrated in the ring.

* Up next is the New Year’s Eve toast. Dolph Ziggler came out first in a tuxedo, followed by AJ Lee in a dress and Big E Langston in his wrestling gear. The three of them toasted while showing clips on the Titantron of several moments from 2012 that John Cena would like to forget, including Brock Lesnar attacking him, Big Show delivering a knockout punch and more. Ziggler announces that Cena has been un-invited from the New Year’s toast and orders Langston to guard the ring.
As Ziggler begins to make out with AJ, Cena interrupts. Cena admits that he had some tough times in 2012, but that’s nothing compared to all the WWE superstars that AJ was romantically linked to this year. Cena talks about all the illegitimate children AJ has with various wrestlers and shows pictures on the Titantron of several babies with the faces of WWE superstars and legends Photoshopped onto the bodies.

Cena announces that he’s officially entering himself into the Royal Rumble and promised to win the WWE Championship again in 2013. Cena toasts AJ & Ziggler as what appears to be human waste falls from the arena roof into the ring, covering the heels. AJ & Ziggler freak out as Cena’s music hits and the show goes off the air. Quite a way to end the final RAW of 2012.

    here comes another week of low rating!!

    • cenasucks

      It can’t be as low as last weeks though. Seems like they ran out of ideas for the ending and decided to drop shit on Dolph. If I recall correctly, Dolph also got covered with crap when he was with Spirit Squad. I bet he sold that like a pro too.

      • Jeremy

        People like you are retarded.

        • cenasucks

          Why may I ask? Is it because you have been spamming this article with stupid comments for the past 4 hours because you have no life? As Y2J says, Shut the hell up, assclown.

      • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

        it’ll probably be low this week, even lower if they’re unlucky…it’s new years eve, I doubt that a lot of people will stay in and watch Raw…=/

  • Patrick Pumphrey

    Perhaps TV 14 Program lol

  • pwnez

    I’m so tired of Miz TV. This raw is probably going to be just as bad as last weeks show.

    • http://twitter.com/NeosOfDark #LOLZ

      You are sexy!

  • DigitalWWE

    Hope Ryback doesn’t squash the shield.

    WWE is usually boring around christmas and new years….it should start getting good again by next week(hopefully)

    • Th3_Ev1l_n1nJa

      dont get your hopes up

      • Jeremy

        Learn. how to write a proper sentence.

        • Th3_Ev1l_n1nJa

          how is that not a proper sentence? or are you talking about yourself?

  • wwetnadudez

    Well thus far it doesn’t look at as bad as the god awful christmas episode..but it still looks pretty bad.

  • Reality

    Finally Barrett gets the title! I’d love to see a champion vs champion Cesaro vs Barrett now.

  • AngelFlow

    Finally Wade Barrett is champion again :D I was nervous when I read on the SEScoops Facebook page “New Champion Crowned” I was thinking it was Punk loosing to Ryback. WWE needs to stop with the Miz TV segments if they want him to success as a face.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Peer-Pressure/100000691268185 Peer Pressure

      Punk losing the title would be a good thing. Why were you nervous?

      • pwnez

        Punk losing the title would have been horrible. I want to see Punk vs Rock at the royal rumble for the title. Have that match happen first then have Punk drop the title. Ryback should not become WWE champion before WrestleMania.

      • AngelFlow

        No, it wouldn’t be a good thing. I think that having Punk feuding with The Rock could help with bringing more prestige back to the WWE Title and I don’t think Ryback is ready to be the world champion.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Peer-Pressure/100000691268185 Peer Pressure

          Ryback is more than ready to be the champ. He’s over as shit and he has proven that he can perform. Punk has been the worst WWE champion since Diesel, IMO. Jeff Hardy was a way better champ than Punk. Punk has gotten stale, his time has come and gone.They should’ve put the strap on Ryback at HIAC. Watch the indy fangirls start voting down my post with their fake accounts.

          • AngelFlow

            Ryback is not ready. He sucks in the ring and in the mic. He is over thanks to the way the WWE booked him, but now listen to the crowd reaction isn’t it the same and he still have the “Goldberg” chants. But how I am going to prove my point if you are a guy who hates the indie scene. I don’t watch it, but there’s no way we can deny that from the indies is where most of the best talented guys of today come and from the past to. The difference is they called it “promotions” and now is the indies.

            LOL! You got it buddy. You see what you fucking smarks are doing to these kids. Corrupting their minds with your bullshit IWC propaganda.

          World Champion yes WWE Champion no.

        • Jeremy

          What you think s irrelevant.

          • http://twitter.com/hellson916 Nelson Carvalho

            and what you think as well in irrelevant.

    • butterpecs

      “New Champion Crowned” is a tactic they use to make people think that a major title change happened, when usually it ends up being something like the Divas title. Trust me, if the World or WWE title changed hands, they’d flat out say it in the headline.

    • Jeremy

      Wade Barrett sucks, so naturally you are happy. IWCtards love the boring ones.

  • http://disqus.com/LateTrain27/ Late Train

    Wade Barrett winning the IC Title alone makes this better than the Christmas Eve episode.

  • DigitalWWE

    Lawl Cena enters himself in the rumble wtf

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

      Cena should be in the Royal Rumble but he shouldn’t win it.

      • DigitalWWE

        Whether he should or should not be in the rumble is not my point. You don’t just enter yourself in the royal rumble. It’s just like when Cena “entered himself” in the money in the back match.

  • http://twitter.com/hellson916 Nelson Carvalho

    taped = low ratings.
    at least it looks a little bit better than last week.
    looking forward for the tag titles match and intercontinental.and the shield attacking ryback and sheamus.

  • Joe

    Shitty ending….lol…..to what appeared to be a shitty show. Fitting.

  • Ares

    RAW seems.. Ok I guess. Not bad though. I really wanna see the Big Show/Ric Rod match to see Del Rio haha

  • fan

    First off, RGIII was not in the crowd. Second, of course the ratings will probably be low again. It is NEW YEARS EVE you idiots!!!! People will be out!!!

    • Jeremy

      Exactly, just like why the Christmas episode got low ratings, it was on Christmas Eve where people usually care more about family, than TV shows. Holiday episodes NEVER Do well.

      It’s amazing how actually got a down vote for stating a fact, just shows how retarded the IWC really is.

  • #heel420

    WWE Writers: “The ratings are low? Fuck it. Let’s drop shit on people.”

  • http://twitter.com/daabbot Mr.Dancer

    wow, skipping this one.

  • Jeremy

    Barrett Boreage.

  • http://twitter.com/_Rhymes1993 Jay Rhymes

    Cut them some slack it’s new years day.
    wwe did this to be with there love ones on new years eve. when raw go back to live next week it will be decent them all of them.

  • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

    mehh, even if the show was good the ratings would suck because it’s New Years Eve…and why is it that I find it amusing how Big E. Langston’s in his ring gear for the whole New Years Eve thing?…imagine if they make him AJ’s new boyfriend and he goes on dates in his ring gear too!…o_O

    Sounds hot!?!
