The first RAW coming off the back of the Tables, Ladders, Chairs and Stairs Pay-Per-View was as dramatic as the night before.

Chris Jericho made his return to RAW as the night's General Manager on a night that saw two massive returns and a big new feud start.

Jericho opened the show in the ring and demanded that the man who accepted his Slammy last week Fandango come and return it.

Instead he got Paul Heyman who discussed a desire to meet Seth Rollins who would also join the two in the ring.

After a speech about being cheated at TLCS and wanting a rematch, John Cena came to the ring and accepted the challenge.


Jericho made the match a steel cage match and also announced that he would be taking on Heyman himself in a match on the show and it would be a WWE App vote to decide the stipulation.

Jericho would appear once again to host his Highlight Reel with special guests Rusev and Lana.

As Jericho provided his patented brand of humour and Rusev and Lana typically not going along with the joke, Rusev threatened to crush Y2J.

Jericho stopped him and told the US Champion that he knew one man who would want to fight him.... Enter Ryback.

The Big Guy came to the ring and went towards Rusev who backed away and out of the arena before any shots could be fired.

Chris Jericho vs Paul Heyman

The WWE App vote revealed that this match would be a street fight and as Heyman came down to the ring, he pleaded with Jericho not to do this.

As Jericho declined, Heyman simply said: "I don't know why you would want to fight.... Brock Lesnar".

The WWE World Heavyweight Champion then came to the ring delivered the F-5 to Jericho and the two left.

John Cena vs Seth Rollins (Steel Cage Match)

Cena and Rollins gave RAW one of the best endings of the year in a very exciting cage match as both men excelled.

As both Cena and Rollins lay motionless in the ring, Lesnar came to the ring and attacked Cena in a style similar to what we saw at Summer Slam.

Heyman then shook the hand of Rollins before they left the ring and allowed Rollins to get the big win over Cena.

The future of the 'Future of the WWE' is now unclear as the handshake makes him the stand out candidate to be the next Paul Heyman guy.

Fandango segment

Following the Chris Jericho vs Paul Heyman match, Fandango came to the ring to boast his victory with Jericho's Slammy trophy.

He didn't get many words out however as he was interrupted by the RAW return of Roman Reigns who had a major impact on TLCS last night.

After taking out Fandango, Reigns was interrupted by the man he attacked last night, The Big Show.

Reigns promised Big Show that if he came to the ring he would be hit in the mouth and that was exactly what hapened as Big Show was forced to retreat.

Big Show and Luke Harper vs Dolph Ziggler and Erick Rowan

With two of TLCS's biggest matches combining in this match, the four men gave a great performance.

After Harper and Ziggler went over the announcers table Big Show delivered the knock-out punch to Rowan and got the win for his team.

The Miz vs Jimmy Uso

In the match that we have been waiting weeks for, The Miz and Jimmy Uso went one-on-one with Uso being very focused on beating the man who has been talking to his wife.

Uso came away victorious as Damien Mizdow provided another Oscar winning performance outside the ring.

Later in the show however, Miz would invite Naomi onto Miz TV at tomorrow's live Smackdown show.

Brie and Nikki Bella vs Alicia Fox and Natalya

The Bella twins were in action against Alicia and Natalya and they both suffered a rare defeat as Natalya pinned Brie.

After the match, Tyson Kidd went to console Nikki Bella, much to the frustration of his wife and the two shared an awkward celebration in the ring.

The New Day (Big E and Xavier Woods) vs Gold and Stardust

After the two teams squared off on the TLCS pre-show, the New Day and the strange siblings once again went head to head.

The New Day got the win for the second night running as Kofi Kingston was on commentary.

Adam Rose vs Kane

After Kane had ran into Rose and his Rosebuds in the back, he revealed that unsurprisingly, he didn't like them.

The two went head to head and as per usual, the Bunny was involved but this time he received a chokeslam from Kane.

Kane then beat Rose and before leaving the ring returned to deliver the Tombstone Piledriver to the Bunny - much to the delight of JBL.
