WWE RAW Opener:

This week’s RAW opens with Michael Cole welcoming us to the show (along with a quick production error) followed by John Cena’s theme music. Cena comes out and the Denver audience explodes with the usual mixed-bag reaction for the leader of the CeNation. We see highlights of the Cena-Randy Orton match from last week. Cena’s music finally dies down as he gets ready to speak.

Cena addresses the hot crowd right off the bat. He talks about the brutality of the Elimination Chamber match, which takes place this Sunday. He talks about the winner of the Chamber getting a guaranteed title shot against “The Animal” Batista at WrestleMania XXX. Cena talks about Orton being beaten by the participants for the Chamber during the past few weeks. Cena says the odds favor a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion being crowned this Sunday.

As Cena continues to speak, he is cut off by The Real Americans theme music. Out walks Cesaro and Zeb Colter. Colter says you’re looking at the next champion. Cesaro says he will not only become the new face of WWE but the new face of America. Cena says Cesaro beating Orton doesn’t mean he’s on a winning streak, it means Orton is on a losing streak. Cena talks about Cesaro having never been in a Chamber match.

As Cesaro tries to continue talking, Sheamus comes out. He says he’s been in an Elimination Chamber match twice. He says he’s going to kick both Cena and Cesaro’s teeth in this Sunday. As he continues to talk, Christian’s theme music hits. Out comes Captain Charisma. JBL dogs Christian on commentary as usual. Christian says he’s going to take Sheamus’ snaggle-tooth and plant it into the mat with his Killswitch. As he approaches the ring, Orton’s theme music hits and out walks the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Orton starts off by thanking The Authority for giving him the opportunity to beat everyone in the ring this Sunday at the Elimination Chamber PPV. Orton makes excuses for losing to each of the Chamber participants over the past few weeks. Orton says there’s a reason why The Authority has deemed him the face of WWE. As Orton goes to enter the ring, he is cut off by Daniel Bryan’s theme music.

The leader of the “Yes! Movement” makes his way to the ring to a huge ovation and a bunch of “Yes!” chants from the fans in Denver. Bryan talks about the importance of the Chamber match, as it leads to a main event at WrestleMania. as Bryan continues to talk, he is interupted by Kane’s pyro and theme music.

Corporate Kane makes his way to the ring. The fans break out in a big “you sold out” chant. It’s actually so loud that it shuts Kane up momentarily. Kane says The Authority has left him in charge of RAW tonight. Kane talks about tonight’s Orton vs. Sheamus match. He says in fairness to Orton, he’s going to put the rest of the Chamber participants in action tonight as well. Kane announces Cesaro vs. Cena and Christian vs. Bryan for later tonight. He says he will be at ringside to enjoy a bird’s eye view. He says those two will be in action right now, referring to Bryan and Christian.

Michael Cole announces a match between Roman Reigns and Mark Henry for later tonight. Jerry Lawler announces a six-man tag-team match featuring Los Matadores and Sin Cara vs. The Wyatt Family for later tonight.

Christian vs. Daniel Bryan

Christian attacks Bryan from behind while Bryan was distracted by Kane. Christian takes Bryan out to the floor and smashes him back-first into the barricade. Christian is working a pretty heelish type of match thus far. A loud “Daniel Bryan” chant breaks out in Denver as Christian throws Bryan into the ringside steps. We head to a commercial.

When we return from commercial we see the referee checking on Bryan’s shoulder. He asks Bryan if he’s okay to wrestle. Bryan says yes. The bell sounds to make this one official and Christian goes straight to work on Bryan’s arm. We see a shot of Kane looking on from outside the ring. Bryan starts fighting back. He knocks Christian out to the floor. He goes to do his trademark dive through the ropes, but Christian cuts him off. Christian gets back in the ring and goes back to work on Bryan’s shoulder.

Christian taunts the crowd as he continues his beatdown of Bryan. The crowd loudly boo’s Christian. We get another shot of Kane looking on outside the ring as Christian continues to work over Bryan’s hurt shoulder. A loud “Daniel Bryan” chant breaks out once again from the fans in Denver. Bryan reverses Christian into a half-Boston crab, but Christian quickly escapes. Christian regains control of the offense and continues to punish Bryan’s hurt shoulder. He again taunts the crowd in heel fashion.

Another loud “Daniel Bryan” chant breaks out as Christian stomps away at Bryan’s arm. Christian yells out “I should be the champ” and the crowd boo’s him yet again. Christian again taunts the fans, but this time it allows Bryan to throw him out to the floor. Bryan goes for his big dive through the ropes and this time he connects. Bryan sells the fact that he hit his shoulder on the barricade during the dive spot. Both guys are down as Michael Cole takes us to a mid-match commercial.

When we return from commercial, Christian is working over Bryan’s shoulder as Bryan begins to fire up and make his comeback. The fans rally behind Bryan, encouraging him to finish Christian off. Lots of loud “Yes!” chants as Bryan fires away at Christian with repeated “Yes!” kicks. Bryan goes for a dive off the top rope onto Christian but Christian gets his knees up. Christian is now back in control of the offense, as he goes to work on Christian in the corner.

The fans break out in yet another “Daniel Bryan” chant as Bryan starts fighting back, blasting Christian with kicks. Christian cuts Bryan’s offense momentum short as he blasts him with a flying back-elbow off the middle rope. Out of nowhere, Bryan slaps Christian in the “Yes! Lock.” Christian quickly escapes. Christian goes for the Killswitch but Bryan reverses into a roll up. 1-2-3. Bryan wins.

Winner: Daniel Bryan

Kane vs. Daniel Bryan

Kane gets on the mic outside the ring and sarcastically compliments Bryan on a hard-fought victory. He says he neglected to inform him that he still has another match tonight. That match is against him. Kane vs. Daniel Bryan is apparently taking place right now. Kane enters the ring and Bryan fires away at him with punches. Kane quickly gets the better of Bryan and throws him out to the floor. Bryan lays on the floor selling his shoulder as we head to another commercial.

When we return from commercial, Kane is laying the boots to Bryan on the mat, focusing on his hurt shoulder specifically. Kane is in a tank-top and dress pants as he continues to stomp away at Bryan. JBL and Michael Cole argue like children on commentary as Kane continues to punish Bryan. Kanes suplexes Bryan down with a vengeance and is dominating the leader of the “Yes! Movement” with relative ease. Kane throws Bryan shoulder-first into the turnbuckle. Another “you sold out” chant breaks out directed at Kane.

A loud “boring” chant breaks out as Bryan finally starts showing some signs of life. Bryan hits a big missile dropkick off the top to Kane. Bryan starts lighting Kane up with “Yes!” kicks. He goes to the well one too many times, as Kane clotheslines Bryan out to the floor. Kane goes out after him and smashes him shoulder-first into the barricade. Kane has Bryan’s arm wrapped around the ring post now and is wrenching away at it. He refuses to break the hold so the referee calls for the bell. Kane has been disqualified.

Winner via DQ: Daniel Bryan

After The Match

Kane continues his attack on Bryan, again focusing the majority of his attack on Bryan’s shoulder. Kane slams Bryan shoulder-first into the ringside steps. Kane beats up Bryan a bit more and then hops on the mic. He says “yeah, I know. I’m disqualified.” Kane’s music hits. Several referee’s attend to Bryan on the floor as Kane leaves.

Renee Young Interviews The Shield

We see some highlights of last week’s U.S. Title match between Dean Ambrose and Mark Henry, specifically showing Roman Reigns spearing Henry after the match. After that, Renee Young is with The Shield backstage. She talks about Reigns going one-on-one with Henry later tonight. Dean Ambrose talks about beating Henry last week. Reigns laughs at him and says you lost to Henry last week. Ambrose tells Reigns that he probably thinks he can do better than he did. Reigns says he knows he can. As Renee continues to talk, Seth Rollins cuts him off and says he can appreciate what she’s trying to do, but The Shield is on the same page. Ambrose talks about the mind games of The Wyatt Family not working against them. Reigns closes by saying “believe in The Shield.” They touch hands in Shield-fashion as we fade off and the announcers hype The Shield vs. The Wyatt Family this Sunday at the Elimination Chamber PPV. We head to another commercial.
