WWE RAW Results & Videos: January 27, 2014

Fandango vs. R-Truth

Michael Cole and the commentary team introduce a video package highlighting a preview of the new Monday Night War show on the WWE Network. After that, Fandango and Summer Rae dance their way to the ring. We head to a commercial during their entrance. When we return from commercial, R-Truth is already in the ring and his music fades down.

The bell rings and Fandango vs. R-Truth is underway. Xavier Woods joins the commentary team for this match. Truth gets Fandango down immediately. Woods talks on commentary about someone stealing his number for the Royal Rumble on Sunday. Emma from NXT is shown in the crowd again. Truth hits a split-leg drop on Fandango and yells “What’s Up?!” to the fans in Cleveland. Fandango rolls out on the floor to recover. Truth runs after him. Summer jumps in front of him and screams, allowing Fandango to run in front of her and clothesline him down to the ground.

Back in the ring, Fandango continues to beat up Truth. Fandango suplexes Truth down in the ring as Woods talks about getting his PDH and looking for United States Championship gold on commentary. JBL messes with Woods a lot about educational stuff as Fandango continues beating up Truth in the ring. Truth clotheslines Fandango down to regain control of the match. He hits a suplex/neckbreaker style move for a near fall as Woods cheers him on. Fandango slows Truth down with a big kick. Truth hits his finisher on Fandango out of nowhere. 1-2-3. R-Truth wins.

Winner: R-Truth

In-Ring Segment: Randy Orton, Batista, Brock Lesnar & Paul Heyman

Randy Orton is shown backstage making his way to the ring as we head to another commercial. When we return from commercial, Justin Roberts introduces us to the General Manager of RAW, Brad Maddox, who is already standing in the ring. He says it’s his pleasure to introduce to us OUR WWE World Heavyweight Champion “The Viper” Randy Orton. Orton’s music hits and out comes the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Orton gets on the mic and says “the champ is here.” The crowd is already lightly chanting “Daniel Bryan.” Orton talks about beating John Cena yet again at the Royal Rumble. Orton says the only thing that matters is that he won. He complains about finding out that in less than a month he’s got to defend his title against five other Superstars at the Elimination Chamber. As he continues to talk, he is cut off by Batista’s music.

Batista comes out to a mixed reaction as Michael Cole points out that he will be headlining WrestleMania. Batista congratulates Orton as a loud “Daniel Bryan” chant breaks out. Batista tries talking over it but the chant continues. He says he’s back to win the Rumble, headline WrestleMania and win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. He says it’s two down and only one to go. Batista says he doesn’t care who likes it, he’s walking out of WrestleMania as the champion. Everyone boo’s. Brock Lesnar’s music hits.

Lesnar and Paul Heyman come out. They slowly make their way to the ring. Paul Heyman informs us once again that his name is Paul Heyman. He says he stands before us tonight as the advocate for Brock Lesnar. Heyman tells Brad Maddox, who is still in the ring, that his patience is running thin. He tells Maddox to inform The Authority that they have two choices. Option one is Orton vs. Brock Lesnar right here tonight. The second option is Lesnar against the “so-called” number one contender Batista. Heyman says he wants The Authority’s answer tonight, “or else.” Lesnar and Heyman leave.

Dolph Ziggler vs. The Miz

Ziggler vs. Miz in what is being billed as “The Battle Of Cleveland” is up next. We head to commercial. When we return from commercial, Ziggler is in the middle of his entrance. He’s wearing a Cleveland Caveliers jersey. The Miz comes out next in a Cleveland Browns jersey. The bell sounds and our “Battle of Cleveland” begins.

Ziggler starts off with a side-headlock on Miz. Miz fights his way out but Ziggler shoulder-blocks him down. Miz catches Ziggler coming off the ropes with a knee to the mid-section. Miz hits Ziggler with a big clothesline in the corner and goes to the top. Miz is caught coming down by Ziggler. Ziggler goes for the Zig-Zag but Miz avoids it. Ziggler jumps on Miz’s back and locks him in a sleeper hold.

Miz fights his way back to his feet as the crowd starts up a “Cleveland Rocks” chant. As Miz gains the upper hand on Ziggler a “Cleveland Sucks” chant breaks out. Miz locks Ziggler in a figure-four leg lock. Ziggler screams out in pain as he tries to make his way to the ropes. He finally makes it and the ref forces a break to the hold. Miz goes to lock him in it again. Ziggler reverses into a roll up attempt but Miz kicks out. Ziggler hits the Zig-Zag out of nowhere. 1-2-3. Ziggler wins.

Winner: Dolph Ziggler

Ryback & Curtis Axel vs. The Usos

When we return from commercial Ryback and Curtis Axel are already standing in the ring. The Usos then make their way to the ring and we’re about to have another tag-team match here on RAW. The bell rings and here we go.

Ryback and Uso start things off for their respective teams. Ryback backs Uso in a corner early but Uso punches his way out. Ryback catches Uso coming off the ropes and slams him back-first into the corner. Ryback thens runs him across the ring and smashes his back into the opposite corner. And again. The “Goldberg:” chants lightly start up and Ryback tags out to Axel.

Axel comes into the ring and picks up where Ryback left off with Uso. The announcers talk about how Axel and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger look alike. Meanwhile, Axel continues his punishment on Uso in the middle of the ring. Axel stomps Uso a bit more and then tags Ryback back into the match.

Ryback comes into the ring and stomps away at Uso before scooping him up for a suplex. Ryback keeps Uso held in the air for a while before suplexing him down. Uso tries punching his way back into the match but Ryback blasts him back to the mat and tags Axel back in.

Axel takes the tag and backs Uso into a corner. He chops Uso a few times and then tags Ryback back in. Ryback grounds Uso in the center of the ring and slaps on a rear chin-lock. Ryback misses a big spear on Uso in the corner and hits his shoulder on the ring post. Uso goes for the tag but Ryback tags in Axel and Axel stops him. Seconds later, Uso does make the tag and the other Uso brother comes in with tons of energy.

Uso backs Axel into a corner and fires away with punches. Ryback makes the blind tag on Axel, which Uso didn’t see, and capitalizes. Ryback scoops Uso up but Uso makes a blind tag as well. Uso super-kicks Ryback down. Uso goes to the top rope and splashes onto Ryback. 1-2-3. The Usos win.

Winners: The Usos

        • SOBI

          Yeah also I loved how HHH said it doesn’t sound like we’re alone in the ring and Shields’ entrance hit after 10 to 15 seconds after that.
          HHH was like WTF why hasn’t anything happend yet he seemed pissed

        • Guest

          didnt u say you werent gonna watch raw?

            scott

            a day ago

            Well I likely won’t be tuning in tomorrow. Hope they have a nice little drop.

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            Oh yeah, I tuned in. I love how you actually went out of your way to find that from yesterday though… Good memory, even I hardly remember what I said yesterday.

          • scott

            haha I said that I was gonna see what happened on this show and if I didn’t like the direction they were going I mite stop. But they impressed me enough with the lesnar, DB, and Naomi segments that I was satisfied.

  • Some_Random_Guy

    Anyone notice Sheamus’s new shirt just now? It had an upside down 4 leaf clover. I googled the symbolism of it and this is what I found “The meaning is relatively obscure, but according to one source, an upside-down clover is unlucky clover. Considerable grief or disappointment is likely to come from a situation that you have little or no control over.”
    What do you think this mean for Sheamus?

    • Some_Random_Guy

      Someone mentioned a while back that Sheamus and the Wyatts could be working together???

      • G.I.R.L.

        A Sheamus heel turn? I’m down. Could potentially make a bland character interesting.

        • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

          Well his face work is pretty much heel work anyway… Just like Batista… Can’t cut a babyface promo to save his life.

          Sheamus vs Bryan is rumoured for Mania… Could see a heel turn here or at EC…

          I’m more intrigued by Lesnar facing Orton or Batista tonight… I bet neither will ‘really’ go down, but it’ll get people talking… And maybe it will happen to make up for the bad press the Rumble got…

          • G.I.R.L.

            The followup to the Shield betrayal is what I’m most looking forward to.

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            Yeah same here… They haven’t even mentioned it yet… Odd. Rollins and Ambrose turning on Reigns would make the most sense… So we’ll probably get the exact opposite.

    • scott

      This could set up a hell of a story. The Wyatts show up at the end and screw Cena and DB’s team and the SHield get into the chamber. Then the SHield try thanking the Wyatt’s and they say they didn’t do it for you and it sets up a Wyatt/SHield match in the future

      • Some_Random_Guy

        what’s that gotta do with sheamus? lol..

        • scott

          It doesn’t have a thing to do with Sheamus I was just goin off what you said sorta haha

  • scott

    Yes I did see that Seth Rollins

    • Aperture

      He played it off really well though.

      • scott

        He mite have scorpioned haha I didn’t see whether or not I just saw him on his face on the ground mad as hell

  • guest

    Put Bryan in the chamber. C’mon WWE listen to your fans YES! YES! YES!

  • scott

    Looks like the Real Americans might finally get a shot at the titles. that’s wassup!

  • Donny Octave

    Real Americans kicked ass here. Hope they get the gold sometime!

    • G.I.R.L.

      Cesaro is not only my idol but is also the FUTURE!

  • thurlj13

    This isn’t my entire card but the top four matches I personally want to see..

    cena vs lesnar

    hhh vs cm punk

    daniel bryan vs batista vs orton

    sting vs taker

    • Timothy Billups

      Cena vs Lesnar? That has already been done and does not need to be done again.
      More than likely, it will end up being Batista v Lesnar at Wrestlemania or Bryan vs Batista depending on what they do in the Chamber. Odds are it will be Lesnar, as I don’t see Orton surviving inside the chamber.
      Sting vs Taker just isn’t in the cards anymore man, that is a dream match from 5 years ago that would draw no doubt about that, but have you seen Sting’s matches lately? He barely puts on the deathlock anymore, it looks like a 2 year old backyard wrestling doing it. Sting’s only role in WWE if he comes should be to induct Warrior into the HOF and then sit on a nice fat legends and merchandising contract and that’s it.

      • Ayatollah of rock N rolla

        They’ve been trying to get Sting for 20 years, I HIGHLY doubt they’d pass up on a Sting Vs Taker Match, maybe not at Mania, maybe SummerSlam or Survivor Series. But as long as the 2 can go, and Sting does indeed sign with them. It WILL happen, and frankly it HAS to happen

        • Timothy Billups

          I’m probably in the minority here, but I don’t think it HAS to happen at all. It’s a pipedream at this point, and would serve no purpose other than to put them in a match. Sting is no longer able to hold a match without being carried, heavily at that. Same goes for Taker, he can still go yes, but his matches are scripted months in advance of WM, to go over the entire match start to finish.
          It’s just like all this “Hogan wrestling at mania” crap that is going on. The same people that bash Hogan in TNA wanting him to wrestle in WWE. Hogan is washed up, no need to be in the ring at all. Should he be in WWE in legends capacity, maybe be special referee here and there, pop in for appearances, etc.? Absolutely, that is where he has belonged for a long while now. But not in the ring wrestling, period.
          And honestly, that is where Sting belongs too. In the past I wanted Sting to come to the grandest stage of them all, but at this point its only going to tarnish his legacy if he were to wrestle like he has been against a phenom.

      • Thurlj13

        I meant to put cena vs wyatt but for some reason my mind went blank. I just feel that sting is going to be signed and thats why i put it there. but batista vs lesnar is a very real possibility and i honestly wouldn’t mind it as long as its no dq

  • scott

    This Raw is shaping up to be a hell of a Raw. I love this. You have Daniel Bryan making his point against the Authority. You have the main event which ever team gets in and you got Batista, Lesnar and Orton in the same ring at the same time. This is awesome

  • piggypoopie

    OF ALL THE SHIRTS ZIGGLER!! 69!!?? REALLY!!??

  • scott

    THANK GOD Ziggler won that match

  • fursey

    wwe networks big sneak peek was more monday night war crap? havent you beaten that horse to death?

    • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

      Heck no. They’ll keep beating that thing forever. THEY WON! WOOOO!

  • Aperture

    When will this day come?

    • scott

      He hasn’t even done anything tonight.

  • Keith Kaleo Limos

    #Bootista. :)

    • SOBI

      thats actually cool of Batista
      seems like Lately the Top Faces that wwe chooses, have to embrace the hate of the crowd cause nobody likes them anymore.
      Cena has been doing this for years now yet wwe makes the same old choices

      • Tom Wing

        The reason they make the same old choices is because they know that no matter what…people will still watch from home, buy tickets and buy merch. Until those three things take drastic hits…..WWE will always make the same three choices.

        • Guest

          Half-true.

          If you don’t buy the merch of your favorite guys, you don’t force WWE to take a closer look at them. Merch is partially what drives pushes. It’s the business of The Business.

          Inaction and apathy is why WWE kept going back to the well with Cena for so many years. Punk and Bryan driving revenue alongside their exceptional work on TV is why they’ve been given prime spots over the past 2-3 years.

        • Morris_b

          DB doesn’t sell! The Authority looks at the numbers. For all the Cena hate that’s out there, he’s still the top drawing star. Daniel Bryan show’s don’t do that great. Time for people to wakeup! lol

  • Some_Random_Guy

    botched backstabber, lol.. Kofi walked back into it! Hahahaha…..

  • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

    So much for a Kingston push…

    So by this logic, shouldn’t Del Rio get a shot at Orton?

  • Buzzard Follower

    i literally just woke up is there another hof induction happening. plus adr def kofi same old $#!+

    • Noah

      Wouldn’t care if Kofi and ADR went to TNA.Don’t care for both.Hate ADR more.

  • Matt Gallagher

    Hey guys

  • G.I.R.L.

    Wtf?! Why not just feed the OAO to Lesnar too? Lesnar shouldn’t just be beating up the faces,he should be decimating EVERYONE!

    I can’t stand the OAO why the heck do they still refer to themselves as “New Age”? Your flame was extinguished before the Ruthless Agression era.

    • Aperture

      I was going to correct you, but I realized that you meant to call them “Old Age Outlaws”…

    • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

      Well they escaped… I guess…. ?

      I hear ya though… lame. Even lamer that there was no payoff to the options… Pointless teasing to try and keep viewers… Very lame.

    • Reality

      Old Age Outlaws really doesn’t sound bad!

  • Buzzard Follower

    batista’s promo skills no bueno

  • Jack

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9M0BMlxEaik
    WrestleMania 30 leaked. With vintage annual crappy WM theme music.

    • Drmgiver

      Say no to crack.

      • Mike

        I don’t think he’s the one that made that video dude. Besides.. it looks pretty close to what they’d book anyway

  • scott

    AJ sucks

  • Noah

    Brock involved with Batista/Randy Orton?.Could be interesting.

  • Noah

    Could there be a change?.Could it be Brock vs Batista at WM 30?.Instead of Batista vs Randy Orton?.

  • Buzzard Follower

    YES JAKE THE SNAKE FOR THE HALL OF FAME

    • Archimedes_Slim

      Most exciting part of Raw.

  • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

    JAKE!!!!!!!!!

            YOURRRRRRRRRRR

  • itrey25

    sting is coming everyone i can feel it

    • Archimedes_Slim
    • Buzzard Follower

      feel it man

      • FOLEY_is_GOD

        That’s Aliens… idiot.

        • Buzzard Follower

          i know its aliens jack ass but look closely its the feel guy

          • FOLEY_is_GOD

            There’s a feels guy? lmao.

          • Archimedes_Slim

            He doesn’t know that feel bro…

  • Buzzard Follower

    CHRISTIAN

    • Archimedes_Slim

      Was hoping he’d make his return in the rumble. At least they made him a video promo.

  • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

    Wait a minute…. No Punk? What?

    • Buzzard Follower

      thats what i was about to say. i clonked out for about half n hour so i thought i missed him but i dont see him in the results

      • Aperture

        Plus, he is trying to sell his “injury” at the Rumble.

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        I didn’t see the interview re: spotlight… but selling the injury works, I guess… Though it’s not like going through a table stopped wrestlers from showing up the following night before…

    • Aperture

      Punk said in a interview recently that he wasn’t going to steal Bryan’s thunder. So he will let Bryan get his spotlight.

  • https://twitter.com/THEREALBIGMAC THEREALBIGMAC

    Two good things have came from RAW tonight so far…. Jake The Snake Roberts is finally getting inducted into the hall of fame…. and Zeb Colters picket signs are hilarious! #WeThePeople

  • Buzzard Follower

    you know what this means shield vs wyatts

  • SOBI

    OH YEAH
    FINALLY looks like it will happen
    the WYATTS VS the SHIELD

  • DoubleD

    Did anyone else think they were going to make it up to us by having Brock beat Batista tonight to set him up as the #1 cobtender at mania? I did.. Show was average.

  • The Chad

    Wyatts vs The Shield upcoming? Well i guess its a start in the right direction WWE, excited to see what stems from that regardless

  • Noah

    What happend to Rollins at the beginning of Raw?.Did he wipe out trying to flip over barricade?.

  • SOBI

    The main event was Great last night everybody performed great.
    even the Divas match didn’t totally suck

    • Cujo999

      Yeah, good show, overall. Miz vs. Dolph was smart booking, as they had to know both would get a good pop with the Cleveland crowd. The rest of the undercard was pretty good, although Koffi vs. ADR was a little bleh. The Diva’s match was solid. HHH and Stephanie did a good job of entwining the heat from the Rumble into their storyline. The main event was a real big win. Not only was it a great match, but they also set up angles for everybody involved going into EC. Plus, Bryan’s back in the title picture, so the IWC can ease back off the ledge a little bit.

  • brad

    Wait so I turned it on at ten and noticed there was no Batista. What the h he just won the rumble last night.

    • Noah

      He was there.He interupted Randy Orton.Then Brock Lesnar came out.

      • brad

        O I missed that part like I said I turned it on later so that’s probably why.

        • Noah

          The walrus Paul Heyman was trying to say that Brock is the number 1 contender to face Randy Orton.I hope Brock doesn’t become the champ again.Don’t want a part timer as champ.

  • Buzzard Follower

    i think battle ground is shaping up like this
    1. chamber orton vs cena vs bryan vs sheamus vs christian vs lesnar
    shield vs wyatts
    batista vs del rio
    punk vs kane
    outlaws vs brotherhood
    aj vs naomi

    • Cujo999

      Honestly, I don’t see them putting Lesnar in the Chamber. The way things went tonight, I wouldn’t be surprised if they had Lesnar face Batista for his #1 contender’s spot at WM.

      • Buzzard Follower

        could be yeah i threw lesnar in there because im not really sure who else you could put it in there plus i was avoiding del rio at all cost

  • MOON CENA

    .. SAD , BUT TRUE LOL !! ..

  • G.I.R.L.

    So… we’re gonna just forget about the Shield betrayal?

    • Noah

      The Shield will be finished soon.I’d say it will end at WM.Then Roman Reigns gets his push.Which I want.

  • ibeBrave

    i thought brock was gonna turn face tonight and destroy orton or batista but yet again the authority said no to what the wwe fans want…..ashame hopefully brock destroys a heel next week

  • smartin2293

    So Shield vs. Wyatts EC tag team match!?

    • Progressed_Now

      WWE ain’t that creative lol

  • Ninjastar

    After i think about it now, i have a feeling its gonna be HHH vs Bryan at WM30 it all makes sense now , this story line with HHH and Bryan thats been going on for months all ends at WM30 . Does this make sense or no, am i missing something?

  • Noah

    Last night,Micheal Cole to JBL:John,Everybody is complaining that you should have gave your Royal Rumble spot to someone who deserves it.JBL’s response,He imitate’s a little kid crying.Haha!.JBL is GOD on commentary!!.

  • Progressed_Now
  • satishwarne708

    What can you say 3 boring guys and a super over guy in the EC so Roman and Bray should make it 6?that would be a cool match of coarse unless the trolling may still continue and Bryan may not even be in the EC?impossible?

  • Salamander1017

    just wondering, what happened to cm punk?

  • Fantasma Del Guapo

    The more I think back to Lesnar jumping Cody & Dust the more I’m reminded why I wouldn’t want any of the TNA people working on WWE. I get that Goldust is a big deal but this was the same as wasting Brock dicking around with Mark Henry instead of someone more current.

  • J’vo

    Here’s what i see right now
    I think Orton vs Batista will not happen or at least a slight change,but who knows remember Cena vs The Rock part 2,or Batista enter to match after Elimination Chamber and beats the winner of that match and then the scenario that he will face Lesnar in WM 30 will occur
    I think WWE don’t want make any risky match

  • Codebreaker

    So the WWE is not pushing Kofi?

  • zzzzwwe

    Still hope macho man is in hall of fame
