A new Intercontinental champion and two new teammates for Cena

Published Add your comment

RAW took place in Roanoke, Virginia this week and as the last show before Survivor Series it certainly went off with a bang.

Both Team Authority and Team Cena stole the show leading to one great final segment to end the show and build up Survivor Series in the best way.

Team Authority run riot

RAW began with all the members of the Authority in the ring and Triple H promising that they will destroy Team Cena throughout the night.

It all began with Luke Harper who took on Dolph Ziggler in a surprise Intercontinental Championship match.

Harper emerged victorious after Ziggler was attacked before the match and struggled to mount any offence, he was attacked after the match and speculated to be out of Survivor Series.


When the Big Show came to the ring later in the show, he was joined by Stephanie McMahon who offered him a place in the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame if he stepped away from Team Cena.

He refused and was placed into a match with his team-mate for Survivor Series, Sheamus.

The two fought in a very good match which was ended by Rusev and Mark Henry causing the disqualification.

Rusev put Big Show in the accolade until he passed out and Sheamus was driven through the announce table by Mark Henry.

After the match, Sheamus was confirmed as officially being ruled out of Survivor Series and Team Cena appeared to be down to just their captain.

In the official contract signing at the end of the show, both Cena and the Authority took turns to express passionate speeches about what the match on Sunday means to them.

As Cena stood alone against the entire Authority, he was ready to take them all on when he was joined by Dolph Ziggler, then the Big Show.

Everyone was wondering who would join the trio and the music of the former Wyatt Family member Erick Rowan hit as he confronted his former brother Luke Harper and the team was complete when Ryback joined the team.

Ryback vs Cesaro

Without doubt, the big match away from the Survivor Series match was Ryback against Cesaro as the two gave a very match.

Ryback got the win in a very tough match as John Cena was shown watching backstage.

Usos + Los Matadores vs Star and Goldust + The Miz and Damien Mizdow

The four teams who will compete in a fatal four way for the tag team titles at Survivor Series took part in a big tag match on RAW.

Stardust got the victory for his team after the match broke down into absolute anarchy and there were some words exchanged between Goldust and the Miz after the match.

Nikki Bella vs "AJ Lee"

Brie Bella came out to AJ Lee's entrance music dressed up like the Divas champion to take on her sister in an exhibition match.

Once the real AJ Lee came out to ringside, she eventually caused the distraction that allowed Brie to get the win over Nikki.

Adam Rose vs Tyson Kidd

Adam Rose continued his losing streak and problems with the bunny as he lost to Tyson Kidd by tapping out to the sharpshooter.

Rose was asking for the Bunny's help during the match but was ignored as he was busy twerking with Natalya.

After the match, Rose went to attack the Bunny again but missed and the Bunny then pretended to hump Rose and hopped away in a very strange segment.

Rusev vs Heath Slater

Rusev took on a a very patriotic Heath Slater who was dressed as Uncle Sam and gave a very patriotic speech before the match.

The match however didn't last long as Slated tapped out to the Accolade.
