"Why yes, this is a tie with dollar signs on it.

Jealous?"








Payback - Chicago, IL (June 1st, 8:00PM EST)

WWE SmackDown!
  • Just watch Raw, the same stuff happens.


WWE Monday Night Raw


- Triple H wanted to continue the feud between Evolution and The Shield, but Batista wanted a one-on-one match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Triple H told him that there was a plan in place and that’d happen eventually, so Batista quit, saying he’d gotten nothing but false promises since returning.

1. Rob Van Dam and Sheamus defeated Intercontinental Champion Bad News Barrett and Cesaro. Cesaro abandoned Barrett, leaving him to take a Brogue Kick from Sheamus and a Five-star Frog Splash from Van Dam for the loss.

- Damien Sandow came to the ring dressed as Indian Pacers player Lance Stephenson and showed off his basketball skills. Big Show showed up, punched him, then dunked a basketball.

2. Bo Dallas defeated Kofi Kingston. Bo won with a bulldog.

- Stephanie McMahon and John Cena argued about Daniel Bryan and what should happen to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Cena called Stephanie a bunch of names. She put him in a match with Kane.

3. John Cena defeated Kane. Cena won by DQ when Kane wouldn’t stop attacking him. After the match, the two brawled.

4. Los Matadores defeated 3MB. Hornswoggle showed up in an afro wig. El Torito pulled it off, and this distracted 3MB. They lost via roll-up.

5. Alicia Fox and Askana defeated Nikki Bella. This was a handicap match ordered by Stephanie McMahon. Foxsana got the win after an Alicia Fox axe kick to Bella. After the match, they continued to beat her up.

6. Adam Rose defeated Jack Swagger. Rose won with a jumping version of the Party Foul, his snapmare driver.

7. The Wyatt Family defeated WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos. This was a non-title match. Erick Rowan won the match for his team with a sit-out slam.

8. Alberto Del Rio defeated Dolph Ziggler. This was a Money in the Bank qualifying match. Del Rio won by submission with his cross armbreaker.

9. Rybaxel defeated Goldust and Sin Cara. Sin Cara was personally chosen by Cody Rhodes to be Goldust’s new tag team partner. Axel pinned Sin Cara.

- Rusev was given a “gold star medal” on behalf of Russia for being “a hero of the Russian Federation.” They played the Russian national anthem. Nothing happened.

- Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton never happened. Triple H announced that he had a Plan B, which was Seth Rollins turning on his Shield teammates. Rollins attacked Reigns and Ambrose with a steel chair, then gave the chair to Randy Orton to continue the assault.

The Shield was so far up the card that they just didn't have anybody else for them to beat anymore so I'm cool with this for the sake of freeing up some bodies in the upper midcard/main event

If I was booking this, Rollins would be a mole sent in to destroy Evolution entirely, and the strain of the masquerade would have made them go their separate ways anyway when it was done.

I get the reasons they broke up the Shield, it just feels like it was too soon. I just like seeing those dudes. Guess we'll see what happens, but the timing makes no sense.

Last two segments saved that Raw. Well at least from what I saw of the rest. I expected Dean and got Seth. I'm very happy with that.

An okay show that dragged a bit, but I loved the ending and I'm intrigued as to where they go from here (and whether they blow the potential of a solo heel Rollins).

The Shield were the most well booked guys in the company but I get why they went the route they did and there really wasn't much left for them to do as a unit. Just wish it was Dean instead since he's the more natural heel and I fear he'll be lost in the shuffle now.

I wonder if Rollins is considered an Evolution member now? That's where I assumed they were going but they played Hunter's music at the end instead of Line in the Sand.

When God invented Lycra, he was thinking about Divas matches.

Del Rio is competing for championships
Rob Van Dam is competing for championships
Daniel Bryan could still possibly vacate his championships
Shield is dead

Wrestling isn't fun right now.

I would bet they are just Triple H's goons and spend the next month in tag matches against Ambrose and Reigns

Yeah, last night was literally the highest that The Shield could go as a team. Doing the breakup immediately after that makes more sense than dragging it out through another Wyatt feud or something.

poo poo! I tweeted it perfectly before.

Anyways, I said I was giving up Raw until MitB if this was a disappointing show. The matches were solid, but only 1 or 2 angles were advanced. Yeah, I'll just catch the recaps and do something else on Mondays.

Exactly this. I know they had to break up The Shield eventually but they're my favorite unit ever so to see it crumble made me sadder than is probably healthy, and frankly I'm shocked Rollins turned and not Ambrose.

I'm glad Rollins turned instead of Ambrose. Dean is way more obvious, but I think his brand of crazy heel might be better suited for a turn down the road rather than being backed by the corporation. Seth Rollins is great at poo poo talking and this should be great. I can also see Dean turning down the road out of desperation to help build to the Roman Reigns/Triple H match, unless they're planning on doing a Dean Ambrose/Seth Rollins match at the same Summerslam.
