Another RAW is in the books and the Road to WrestleMania XXXI continues as the WWE Universe finally got to see the celebrity angle play out.

For several weeks now, Jon Stewart of the Daily Show and Seth Rollins have been engaging in a war of the words.

Rollins invaded the Daily Show and invited Stewart to RAW tonight and the soon to be ex host of the show didn't decline.

Rollins was the main name to come out of the show after he started the night by addressing the imminent arrival of his new nemesis.

After pleading how much he was worth, Rollins was confronted by an old enemy as Roman Reigns came to the ring.


The segment would end with Reigns attacking both members of J&J Security and Rollins leaving them scrambling to the back.

When Rollins re-emerged for his Daily Show segment, he spoke with Stewart and the two traded insults.

Eventually Stewart mentioned how Rollins hasn't earned anything he has and this only angered Mr Money in the Bank.

As things got heated and Rollins grabbed Stewart by the scruff of the neck, Randy Orton emerged and provided a big distraction.

Stewart then kicked Rollins in the crotch and ran for his life leaving the Authority baffled.

Roman Reigns vs Seth Rollins

After their earlier interaction, Orton convinced Rollins to demand a match with Reigns and he promised he would be in his corner.

After his presence was rejected, Orton would show up half way through the match and once again provide a distraction.

As various members of the Authority got involved on behalf of Rollins, it would be Orton who did the most damage.

Orton grabbed Reigns foot which allowed Rollins to sneak in and get the quick pinfall victory over the future WrestleMania main event superstar.

Reigns would eventually go on to take out every member of the Authority except Orton who quickly left the ring area after the match.

Intercontinental Championship switch

The ever expanding list of men who are battling for control of the Intercontinental title belt took several new turns tonight.

It all started with a match between the holder of the belt Dean Ambrose and the actual champion Bad News Barrett.

R-Truth on commentary would steal the belt halfway through the match, only to be confronted by Luke Harper.

He would hand the belt to Harper and as he walked away with it, BNB would stand in the ring asking where he's going allowing Ambrose to nail Dirty Deeds and beat the champion.

Later Harper would take on Daniel Bryan where once again BNB would appear to take back his title belt.

He was thwarted by Ambrose who had the belt stolen away by R-Truth before it was once again returned to Harper.

Harper looked to be leaving with it before Dolph Ziggler hit a superkick on the stage and picked up the belt for himself.

Paul Heyman 

The Advocate for the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar came to the ring to address the rumours surrounding his client.

He promised that he will be at WrestleMania to defend his title but will go wherever he feels like before and after the show.

The microphone kept cutting out on Heyman and he became more and more irate as his insults became a lot darker.

Eventually, he guaranteed that Lesnar will beat Reigns at WrestleMania and left the ring.

Nikki Bella vs Paige (Divas title match)

In a rematch from Fastlane, Nikki Bella would take on Paige in what proved to be a very impressive match from the divas.

Paige would get the upper hand and put Nikki in the PTO and look set to win the Divas title for the third time before Brie Bella would interfere and cause the disqualification.

As the Bellas looked set to attack Paige again, the returning AJ Lee would come down and help her former 'frenemy'.

The two would talk backstage and seemingly form some sort of alliance in a united mission against the Bella twins.

John Cena vs Curtis Axel

John Cena would address Rusev's refusal to face him at WrestleMania and officially declare himself entered into the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.

Stephanie McMahon had other ideas however claiming that stars can't just choose their own matches.

Curtis Axel would then come out and claim that he should be in the big match against Rusev at WrestleMania.

McMahon made a match between the two and told Cena that the only way he will appear at WrestleMania is if Rusev changes his mind.

Cena would then annihilate Axel before Rusev comes out to once again refuse Cena a match and drop the Russian flag over the ring.

Triple H and Booker T

Triple H attempted to address the issue between him and the man he will face at WrestleMania Sting.

Having previously stated that Triple H may have been a reason Sting wasn't able to enter the WWE following the downfall of WCW, Booker T was called into the ring.

Booker kept up his line of thought and was thanked for coming into the ring by Triple H before being told he was fired.

As Booker left the arena, Triple H would change his mind and say that he was simply proving how much power he had and that Booker wasn't actually fired.

Bray Wyatt's coffin

Rather than one of his trademark videos in an all black setting, Bray Wyatt would address the Undertaker on the stage in front of the WWE Universe.

He would stand in front of a wooden casket which he would claim to have built specifically for the Undertaker.

He would go on to ask for the Undertaker to find him again and claim he is torturing him with the silence he has received.

Natalya, Tyson Kidd and Cesaro vs The Usos and Naomi

Yet another inter gender six person challenge took place as the Usos looked for revenge over the new Tag Team Champions.

Natalya would eventually get hurt during the match and would move to the apron but Kidd would tag her in when confronted by both Usos.

Natalya would have to come into the ring and got ambushed by Naomi who would then pick up the win for her team.

Mizdow's turn?

Following the scenes regarding Mizdow's advert seen on Smackdown, the Miz hosted a screening of his advert which would then embarrass him greatly.

Miz would then slap Mizdow who turned on him looking outraged and as the crowd hoped to see him turn on his mentor finally, they were subdued as fell back into character.
