The final RAW before Sunday's Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View was one to remember for so many different reasons.

It was dubbed RAW reunion as several legends were in attendance to make it a very memorable night.

There was one legend who showed up that gave us a RAW moment like never before as the Vigilante Sting made his RAW debut.

The night all started with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar coming to the ring and demanding Seth Rollins come down and face him.

He instead got the Authority and John Cena as Lesnar was defused, and Cena was given an ultimatum.


It was revealed that the WWE Universe would choose if Cena would get a chance to wrestle for the jobs of Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan.

The Universe voted yes even though a loss for Cena would see him lose his WWE World Heavyweight Championship match on Sunday.

John Cena vs Kane, Seth Rollins and Big Show

It was revealed that Cena would face three members of the Authority in his effort to try and get his friends re-employed.

The match went largely as was expected as Cena was constantly beat down and struggled to gain much offense.

As it once again looked like the Authority were set to win, Sting appeared on the big screen and soon made his way into the arena.

He came out on stage drawing Kane, Big Show and Triple H away from the ring and Rollins away from Cena.

Sting send an ominous point Triple H's way and Cena managed to get the quick pin on Rollins to get his friends back.

A bad night didn't end there though for the Authority as Lesnar would arrive once again and target Rollins.

Lesnar would single handedly take out Big Show and Kane whilst Rollins once again escaped and Sunday's main event has become even bigger.

Legends night

There were many legends in attendance at RAW tonight and they dominated two different segments of the show.

Firstly there was Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair forming the legends panel to discuss who will win the Royal Rumble match on Sunday.

When n-one chose Big Show, the giant came down and was unhappy about it to the point that Ric Flair started to confront him.

Big Show would eventually knock out the Nature Boy drawing Roman Reigns to the ring to defend the industry legends.

Reigns sent the Big Show over the top rope and then helped Flair out of the arena.

The next set of legends came in the shape of the NWO members, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and X-pac filed the ring.

They were confronted by the Ascension who have claimed to be the greatest tag team in WWE history in recent weeks.

As it looked like the Ascension were going to attack the legends, JBL stood up and began to verbally assault the newest team.

He revealed an APA t-shirt under his shirt and his former tag team partner Ron Simmons came down and joined him in the ring.

Eventually the New Age Outlaws came down and were the two men who took out the Ascension and will now meet the two at the Royal Rumble.

Daniel Bryan vs Bray Wyatt

Daniel Bryan made his in-ring return on RAW since his injury back in May and he took on an old enemy.

Bray Wyatt - his old nemesis gave him a good run for his money as Wyatt constantly targetted Bryan's surgically repaired neck with Kane watching at ringside.

With both men set to compete in the Royal Rumble, each is set for a big few days and it was Kane who was the most important.

He attacked Bryan outside the ring behind the referees back and tossed him back into the ring for Wyatt to hit Sister Abigail and get a big win.

Dean Ambrose vs Bad News Barrett

Announced on the RAW pre-show, the Authority were supposedly unhappy with Bad News Barrett's performances in recent weeks.

They placed him in a match with the Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose who was made to pay for large portions of it thanks to the leg injury he suffered in that ambulance match with Bray Wyatt.

It didn't matter in the end though as Ambrose avoided the Bull Hammer and hit Dirty Deeds to get the win over the Intercontinental champion.

Rusev vs R-Truth

Days before his second Royal Rumble match, Rusev was dominant as ever in a match against the birthday boy, R-Truth.

A typically short match with Rusev forcing Truth to tap out to the accolade as he continues to look strong.

Jey Uso vs The Miz

With a chance to win back the Tag Team Titles just days away, The Miz took on Jey Uso to try and weaken him before the Royal Rumble.

It didn't work out that way however as Jey Uso got the relatively easy win after gaining some momentum and hitting the Miz with a splash from the top rope.

Paige and Natalya vs Alicia Fox and Summer Rae

With a tag match announced for the Royal Rumble that will see Paige and Natalya take on the Bella twins, the two were action tonight with the Bellas on commentary.

Paige and Natalya got the big win and then stared down the Bella Twins as they left ringside.
