An appearance from Mr McMahon kicked RAW off in style

Published Add your comment

RAW in Buffalo was an explosive affair as the Authority lost a member, a title changed hands and there was a special appearance by the CEO.

As RAW opened, the music for Mr McMahon sounded as he was joined in the ring by Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

Mr McMahon announced that should Team Authority lose the big main event at Survivor Series, they would cease to be the Authority and no longer be in charge of the WWE.

Seth Rollins had two matches in the show, first challenging for the Intercontinental Championship against Dolph Ziggler.

The two gave a great match and it looked like Rollins was on the verge of winning as the Viper then came from nowhere and delivered an RKO to Mr Money in the Bank.


That set up a clash between the two as the main event to help 'clear the air' between the Team Authority members.

It didn't quite work as in another very good match, Rollins got the win by the roll-up pin and as they all tried to get the men to shake hands, Orton attacked the whole authority.

Eventually he attacked Triple H and that led to him being curb stomped on the announce table by Rollins.

Triple H eventually told Rollins to finish it and walked away, Orton received another cub stomp, this time on the stairs and was left to be wheeled out of the arena by the EMT's.

There was a WWE Network exclusive after RAW went off the air as Sheamus took on Rusev for the United States Championship.

Sheamus had previously lost to Tyson Kidd on RAW via count-out and Rusev and dominated Zach Ryder.

Rusev won the title in what was a very physical battle by getting Sheamus in the accolade until he passed out.

Mark Henry and the Big Show had their eagerly awaited encounter after the events of last week where the two Goliaths clashed twice.

Big Show won by disqualification after being hit with the steel steps and then given the World's Strongest Slam on the stairs as Henry left him lying there.

Cesaro and Dean Ambrose faced off once again and midway through the match, the lights went down and then Bray Wyatt was seen in his rocking chair up on the stage.

Ambrose got the win once again and as it looked like he was about to go after Wyatt, the lights went down once again and he was gone as quickly as he had arrived.

The Usos continued their feud with the WWE's acting duo as Jimmy Uso lost to the Miz after a distraction by Damien Mizdow.

At one point in the match, as Mizdow continued to imitate Miz's exact actions, Jey Uso began imitating his brother in a hilarious segment.

Stardust was in action against Fernando of Los Matadores with the Miz and Mizdow were also on commentary.

Fernando got the win after Goldust clashed with Miz and Mizdow and Stardust got distracted then received a back stabber.

Titus O'Neill pledged his support to the Authority claiming he wouldn't back down from anyone, then came Ryback who hit the meathook clothesline and shellshocked for the win.

Nikki Bella took on Emma in front of a watching AJ Lee, Nikki got the win after delivering the rack attack.

Nikki forced her personal assistant Brie to slap AJ after the match which she very hesitantly did and was hit back by AJ for her trouble.
