It finally happened, the infamous music, the black and white make-up and the ever present baseball bat of Sting debuted on WWE TV.

It was the moment that WWE fans had been waiting for for a while and I'm sure we all wished it had of been a personal appearance but that shouldn't diminish how epic this moment was.

It wasn't just one big WCW legend who showed up on RAW tonight, the 16-time World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair made an appearance also.

It was a classic appearance from the Nature Boy and a great opening to the action packed main event on RAW.

The three members of the Authority - Kane, Seth Rollins and Randy Orton teamed up to take on John Cena and Roman Reigns, which should have been a six-man tag match, but this happened.

So when it came to the main event, there was a very eventful finale...

It seems like the tensions between Orton and Kane finally came to the boil tonight and it has now blown Battleground wide open.

The WWE appeared to be about 65 years too late but held a detente to try and ease the tension between the American and Russia forces.

Paul Heyman's 'next big thing' has been set up after his former client Cesaro appeared alone on RAW to face off against Big E.

Big E picked up the win after Kofi Kingston - who accompanied him to the ring took a chair off Cesaro to help him to victory.

Heyman then showed up with Triple H and Stephanie informing them that if plans A and B fail for Battleground, they should try his 'plan C'.

Bray Wyatt and Chris Jericho continued their feud with a great segment.

Many of the competitors who will contest the Intercontinental Title battle royal at Battleground faced off on RAW in different matches.

Sheamus fell to the Miz, Alberto Del Rio defeated Rob Van Dam after a very physical performance, the streak went to 15-BO after a surprising win over the Great Khali but the best of the matches saw Dolph Ziggler get very lucky against Fandango.

The Usos were supposed to have a match but weren't actually able to make it to the ring after being attacked by Eric Rowan and Luke Harper.

Nikki Bella was again the victim of the numbers game after she was beaten by Alicia Fox and Cameron and AJ Lee beat Eva Marie.

There were also two very different but equally strange promos including Goldust and Stardust and the ever entertaining Damian Sandow.
