After a disappointing pay per view, this week edition of Raw was one of a kind. The Authority responds about John Cena winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. A former World Heavyweight Champion and a former Diva Champion returned to Raw. Seth Rollins road to success and much more. In this article, I will talk of the best and the worst of the night in this memorable episode of Raw.
- 1) Two surprise returns. Both Chris Jericho and AJ Lee returned to Raw and in incredible fashion. Chris Jericho attacked The Miz who also returned and then The Wyatt Family attacked Jericho. At the end Bray Wyatt hit Jericho with the Sister Abigail. It appears that this will be the new rival of Bray Wyatt. AJ Lee confronted Paige and challenges her for the championship. After a surprising double turn in which AJ Lee turns babyface and Paige turns heel, Paige accepted the challenge and AJ Lee defeat her with a surprising pin for the three count.
- 2) Seth Rollins vs RVD. A very physical match in which the two opponents hit each other with their best moves. At the end Seth Rollins hits RVD with the Powerbomb in the ropes and then with the finisher for the three count. After that Dean Ambrose gave an outstanding promo on the big screen telling Rollins that he will be haunting him each time Rollins tries to catch in the Money in the Bank briefcase.
- 3) Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins brawl. After the match between John Cena and Roman Reigns against Randy Orton and Kane, Kane attacked John Cena leaving him in very bad shape. When Seth Rollins was about to cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase, Dean Ambrose attacked Rollins and prevented him for cashing in the briefcase.
- 1) The Great Khali defeats Damien Sandow. The Great Khali defeated Damien Sandow in less than a minute and he had no idea on what to do next. It was an awkward moment because The Great Khali doesn’t have any idea on what to do in the ring. The positive aspect of the segment is Damien Sandow interpreting perfectly Mr. McMahon.
Jack Swagger confronted Rusev. Jack Swagger is the first superstar that caused Rusev to abandon the ring. Finally Rusev has a Real American challenging him. This rivalry will be interesting because both Lana and Zeb Colter are great managers and both Rusev and Jack Swagger are very physical wrestlers.
In conclusion, the June 30, 2014 episode of Raw was full of surprises and that was the main cause of the success of this episode. Jericho and AJ Lee returned just in time for the most exciting event of the summer: SummerSlam. This will be a very hot summer for the WWE.
