- Tonight’s WWE RAW opens up with a look back at CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar from SummerSlam. We also get a look at the Daniel Bryan vs. John Cena WWE Title match and Randy Orton cashing in after Triple H turns.

- We’re live from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California as Michael Cole welcomes us. We go to the ring and out comes John Cena to a very mixed reaction.

Cena says he is disgusted about what happened at SummerSlam. A “Cena sucks” chant breaks out. Cena talks about Daniel Bryan now. Cena says two weeks ago, WWE medical staff told him the giant ball of fluid on his elbow was the result of a torn tricep. Cena says they wanted to cancel the match at SummerSlam but he used. Cena says he isn’t using this as an excuse. He admits he was beaten by a better man in a clean fight. Cena says all he wanted was a clean fight. Cena says he’s not putting surgery off, he’s leaving WWE. Fans cheer and Cena cracks a smile. Cena says he will miss all this. He starts praising Daniel Bryan and introduces him. Bryan comes out to a huge pop. Before he can speak,here comes Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie is met with boos. She says Bryan earned the right to become WWE Champion last night and she’s sorry. She says Bryan didn’t deserve what happened but her husband Triple H did what’s best for business. A “no” chant breaks out. Bryan says he expected something like that from Stephanie or Vince McMahon, but not Triple H. Bryan says it must be true that when you lie down with trash, sooner or later you start to stink. Stephanie says she knows Bryan is upset so she will let that slide. Bryan mocks her and asks if she’s going to fire him. Bryan says he will go back to wrestling in armories and selling t-shirts in his car because he’s not afraid of getting fired. Bryan says but before he leaves, he’s going to get his money worth. Bryan says he will get either Randy Orton or Triple H and give Stephanie a real reason to fire him. Stephanie says nobody wants to fire Bryan. She and Triple H believe Bryan is of value but not everyone can be the face of the company, not everyone can be WWE Championship material. She mocks his height and weight, and his looks. Stephanie talks down to Bryan and says he might not be an A, but he’s a B+… a solid B+. Bryan says she is reminding him of a word that starts with the letter B right now. A “bitch” chant barely starts up from the crowd. Bryan says he doesn’t have to accept what happened and just move on. Bryan says he can be WWE Champion and he doesn’t care what Stephanie thinks. She suggests he calms down and he knocks the microphone out of his hand. She asks for another. Stephanie gets upset and tells Bryan to calm down. She refuses to be disrespected by him and calls for security. Stephanie says Bryan is forcing her hand. She asks security to escort Bryan out of the building. Stephanie says Bryan has no one to blame but himself. Fans chant his name. Bryan leaves the ring and security follows. Bryan turns around on the ramp and looks back at Stephanie before getting a “no” chant going. We go to commercial.

Must See WWE RAW Photos for Tonight, Triple H vs. Randy Orton News, Busty New WWE Diva Personal Photos and More…

  • Ronald Ryan

    hmmm Austin needs to return to aid bryan

  • Jimmy dice

    This pisses me off…. but I’m glad. Bout time they start shaking things up. Bryan will be champ again. And I think they are just building on what should be a great feud between orton and bryan. And I agree with ronald. Stone cold or someone will probably show up to help bryan before it all said and done

  • Timothy Graham

    This could be a brilliant strategy if done correctly from here on out. It appears they’re making Bryan into Austin 2.0, hugely popular with the fans but deemed to be unworthy of championship gold by Vince & co. Like Austin, he will have some tough times ahead, but will ultimately succeed despite the odds against him. I have a feeling this could be the best angle they’ve had in a long time. Here’s hoping they don’t mess it up!

    • Rene Ramirez

      Yes biggest angle yet but look at Ziggler, Swagger, and others wasted becouse they got on the bad side of the McMahon HHH turn here to his old selfish ways another Bitshoff Bryan needs Kane to bring out the evil on him while being a face Just the way Bryan brought out the human in Him plus Kane Needs a good run and him being Bryan mentor will be a challenging role

  • Rene Ramirez

    Like Miz will say Really Really they did it all tonight Bryan Don’t think Austin coming to aid Nobody Here how i see it Big show and Ziggler taking the beating for speaking out , there the alleys plus a leader Shaun Michals the Teacher and him turning on Bryan. Or how about Punk Uniting the ROH people and the Shield turning face perfect so they can battle the wyats. Oh maybe old dutch mantell *Zeb Colter) getting into this to. All i know Bryan ain’t no Stone Cold but he has a Great friend an thats the Devil Kane. Bring back the bad attitude but with a twist the Undertakers role but Kane being the New Brood.an Bryan looking for revenge still staying face but with Kane as his menter. Today was the biggest shameful day for me as a 30 yr fan.

  • allan

    was that john morrison who attacked the miz lol cause it is sure looked like him..

  • Sexton Hardcastle

    Bout damn time raw got intense……..reminds me when austin became the champ for the first time……..alot like the austin Rock corporation feud

  • gevin simpson

    it took a long time, but WWE is going back to the art of the swerve. Now use that same art to help Daniel Bryan.
