Didn't tune in early enought to see the Wyatt family. :(
The RVD/Jericho match was awesome. Jericho is really stepping it up this year. Could not believe the height of RVD's frogsplash. This was like the RAW of old.
The Cena announcement segments ended well with Daniel Bryan getting the match. YES YES YES
I laughed when Michael Cole said something like, "Nobody gets as high as RVD." (during the replay of the frog splash)

However, I have a feeling that Daniel Bryan's WWE Title reign will be short lived. Randy Orton has been itching to turn heel for well over a year now. What better way than to freaking cash in your contract on a vulnerable Daniel Bryan after his "grueling match" with Super Cena?
Orton cashing it in on Daniel Bryan will easily make him the most hated man in the WWE. I personally think that The Shield needs some kind of spark as well, especially since the Wyatt Family pretty much took their thunder. This could be the perfect opportunity for Orton to be the leader of a stable again.
If I were booking it, I would have Daniel Bryan defeat Super Cena at Summerslam by submission. After the match, Cena hands the WWE Title over to Daniel Bryan and shakes his hand. He'll leave the ring to let Daniel Bryan celebrate. As Cena reaches the stage, that's when The Shield will come out and surround the ring, ready to attack Daniel Bryan. Cena will decide to do the noble thing and help defend Daniel Bryan from the attack.
Of course, both Cena and Bryan should still be selling their injuries from the match and cannot overcome The Shield. After they're both laid out, cue Randy Orton's music. He cashes in his contract and celebrate as The Shield watches and/or clap their hands in approval because justice has been served.
WHen Cole said that, I don't know if it was him or JBL, but one of them laughed...or at least it sounded that way to me.
Check out this match from 10 years ago. A newbie John Cena vs "American Dragon" (Daniel Bryan) on the jobber show Velocity.
Wow, RAW was pretty good last night. Loved the NIP SLIP. Bella's have nice tatas.
I can not believe how crazy over Daniel Bryan is. Jeeps. And how good must Cesaro felt hearing "This is awesome." He and Daniel had a great match.
3 critics of WWE....
1. Stop it with the app, we get it.
2. Stop it with the Total Divas....we get it.
3. Don't recap so much....we are watching, we have seen it.
Didn't tune in until the main event. Was late at the gym. Ryback just needs to go. Tired of these steroid freaks that have no skill.
It was a decent show. Loved the Daniel Bryan Gauntlet match. I wish they would have more of those actually... along with 2 out of 3 falls matches.

A counter from the uppercut to a rollup? That's genius.
Big Show was advertised to return on RAW, but didn't show up. I'm glad the final guy in the gauntlet match was Ryback though. He prays on the weak, and Daniel Bryan was weakened in this match. The gauntlet match was a fun 30+ minutes.
I agree with you though. The WWE App is ridiculously useless and annoying. Total Divas, I get that you're trying to promote the show. But whatever segment they planned on MizTV was a total failure. Not that I was going to watch it, but after that terrible segment... it made me wish the show would fail miserably because its stupid.
The Smackdown recaps rubbed me the wrong way last night. They want people to watch Smackdown yet that show has not been worth watching for awhile now. (Back when there was an actual brand split, I always preferred Smackdown over RAW) Anyway, everything that happens on RAW, will happen on Smackdown. If something different happens on Smackdown, they'll rehash it for RAW. So ultimately... what is the freaking point? So I get that they recapped a bunch of stuff from Smackdown, like Dolph/AJ and Big E, Cody Rhodes/Damien Sandow, and even Ryback/Jericho. But what really bugged me was the Mark Henry segment.
They recapped Mark Henry getting beat up last Monday on RAW, but conveniently left out the fact that he and the Usos beat up the Shield on Smackdown and made them retreat. Why is that? Oh, its so they could do the exact same segment on RAW. That is what bugged me the most. It's annoying really.
One last thing... I'm very sad that Wade Barrett has been reduced to jobber status. Unreal how they book their talents with the most potential in the WWE... a complete waste.
Agree with you 100%. When I saw Barrett adn RVD entering the ring, I was expecting a main event type match. The match was a joke. Looks like they're using RVD too much all of a sudden. Supposed to be on Smackdown too. Would rather have had a grueling match on Raw.
