WWE Monday Night RAW Results
September 29, 2014
Results by: Mike Tedesco of Wrestleview.com
“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.
A video highlights the events from last week’s RAW. Dean Ambrose and John Cena attacked Seth Rollins at the start of the show only for Rollins to escape. The Authority had Ambrose locked in a room to prevent him from getting to Rollins. During the main event of John Cena vs. Randy Orton, Rollins and Kane attacked Cena. Rollins took the cover off a box of what he thought were cinder blocks only for Ambrose to be under there. Cena and Ambrose then attacked Rollins until he ran away. Then this past Friday on Smackdown, Ambrose attacked Rollins and stole the Money in the Bank briefcase.
Triple H and Stephanie McMahon make their way out to the ring to boos from the crowd. The middle rope is colored pink for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There is also a logo on the ramp. A “CM Punk” chant breaks out as Stephanie McMahon greets them. She says she always wonders why people chant for quitters. It’s because they’re quitters themselves. Rather than fighting for what they believe in, they quit. Things get hard at work; they just quit their jobs. They have an argument with their wife or husband, and they quit on their families. They take the easy way out. They either quit or steal, just like Dean Ambrose on Smackdown when he stole the Money in the Bank briefcase from Seth Rollins. That was unnecessary because the contract is still intact and belongs to Seth Rollins. Ambrose just wants to send a message to The Authority. They’re here to send a message to Ambrose because it will not be tolerated. Triple H says the briefcase is a symbol. It’s a symbol that represents this business. They will not let anybody, and they mean anybody, disrespect this business.
“Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and pardon the interruption, but I am the advocate for the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World, Brock Lesnar!” Heyman comes out to the stage to a mix of cheers and boos. Heyman says it’s ironic that Triple H used the word “disrespected” because his client feels disrespected. He’s disrespected by the preposterous notion that John Cena was within a moment of becoming the champion at the expense of his client. He’s also disrespected by the fact that their boy, Seth Rollins, not only got involved in what was surely to be a successful title defense, but Curb Stomped his client from behind. Then Rollins attempted to actually cash in the Money in the Bank contract, which is why, with all due respect, his client, Brock Lesnar, has instructed him to come here tonight to Chicago and find out first hand if his client has a problem that he needs to deal with involving Seth Rollins or… Stephanie interrupts him and says Heyman is a shrewd businessman. She warns Heyman to choose his next words carefully because if he’s threatening them…
Seth Rollins’ music hits, and he makes his way out to the ring. Rollins gets in the ring, and the crowd chants, “You sold out!” Rollins says he wants to get something straight. No one in The Authority told him to run down and cash in the contract on his client. He did that on his own. Further, no one suggested that he Curb Stomp Brock Lesnar’s face into the mat either. He acted alone, and he’s kind of disappointed because he figured Heyman would respect his decision at Night of Champions. Rollins is trying to build a career like Heyman did on opportunity. Heyman is an opportunist, and he figured he’d understand that he was making the most of his opportunity at Night of Champions. Rollins thinks he speaks for everyone here when he says that no one wanted to see John Cena win the world title again. There is a mix of boos and cheers for that. Rollins says he wanted to become champion by beating the best, and the best is his client, Brock Lesnar. A “CM Punk” chant breaks out. Rollins says Lesnar should be flattered and complimented by what happened at Night of Champions, not insulted. If Lesnar is offended in any way, from the bottom of his heart, he is truly sorry. Rollins puts a hand on Heyman’s shoulder to drive it home, and they shake hands. Heyman says what Rollins did took a lot of hutzpah, but if it ever happens again, he won’t be dealing with him – he’ll be dealing with Brock Lesnar.
Heyman goes to leave, but Triple H tells him to stop and gets in his face. Heyman looks terrified. Triple H then says he enjoyed their conversation before shaking hands with him. Triple H tells him to have a nice night, and Heyman quickly scurries off.
Rollins says he appreciates The Authority coming out to chastise Dean Ambrose over what happened on Smackdown. He knows Ambrose, and he is the furthest thing from normal. He won’t respond to this like normal people do. Ambrose is probably backstage laughing, but it’s not funny. There are personal items of his in that briefcase that need to be returned to him immediately. If Ambrose does not come down to this ring right now, stomping his head through cinder blocks is going to look like nothing when he gets his hands on him.
Dean Ambrose appears on the titantron and asks if he’s looking for this, and he holds up the briefcase. These days, every time he looks at Rollins, he wants to sew his eyes shut. Rollins used to be a man, but now that he’s letting his corporate mommy and daddy fight for him, he has a message for all three of them. If they want the briefcase back, they need to come get it. Triple H, Stephanie, and Rollins leave the ring and make their way backstage. John Cena’s music hits, and he attacks Rollins. Cena knocks him down the ramp and gets him in the ring, but Rollins immediately slides out and runs out through the crowd. Rollins rejoins The Authority at the top of the stage, and they taunt Cena.
A video of some WWE Superstars talking about putting an end to breast cancer is shown.

He doesn’t care how many pieces Ambrose comes back in. This ends tonight. He doesn’t care how. Jamie Noble says he understands and asks if they can have some sledgehammers. Triple H says Noble and thinking aren’t a cohesive unit. He just wants them to get the briefcase back.

The Miz and Damien Sandow burst in. Sandow does the talking for The Miz. Sandow says he is an A-list Hollywood celebrity. They demand action, and Triple H laughs in their faces. Triple H says this is the kind of thing he needs. They’re here to make him laugh. In the meantime, the stunt double can have a match with Sheamus. If The Miz ever walks in here barking orders, his little Straight-To-DVD career comes to an end. Triple H then kicks him out.

Everything but the briefcase, which is priceless. During his time with the briefcase, he found Rollins’ personal effects. They were close in The Shield, but he never knew this side of him.

A still photo is shown of Big Show on the mat as Rusev was standing. She then says Big Show is a sore loser before showing photos of him knocking out Rusev.
Big Show’s music hits, and he comes out to the stage laughing. Big Show says that was really good. Lana twisted the facts. Their propaganda machine runs well. They talk about how great Russia and Vladimir Putin are, but we all know it’s a bunch of crap. A USA chant breaks out. The thing is Lana can’t handle the truth.

Cena says he loves Chicago and says it’s his kind of town. Tonight, the Windy City seems unstable. They heard the entire WWE Universe chanting Ambrose’s name. As far as tonight is concerned, he’s glad he’s fighting with him rather than against him. That’s just for Orton and Kane. They both have their eyes set on Rollins. If he’s unstable enough to get in between… Dean Ambrose walks up. Cena asks if he wants to add something. Ambrose says, “Not really.” Ambrose says after they’re done with Kane and Orton, Rollins is his. Cena says if Rollins shows his face before, during, or after their match, he’s got a beat down coming by his hands, and he’ll be cashing in. Ambrose tells Cena to remember that no one takes food off his plate – not even Cena.
AJ Lee makes her way to the ring to a great reception. Paige then comes out to the stage as a “CM Punk” chant breaks out.

Hogan says, “Well let me tell you something, brother!” Hogan says Hulkamania has been running wild for thirty years. He’s had some very special moments in his career, especially in Chicago, brother. Not only is it an honor standing in this ring, it’s an honor to make this huge announcement. This is the third year the WWE has teamed up with Susan G. Komen to fight cancer and save lives. He’s turned in his red and yellow because the whole WWE has gone pink to honor National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. They can sit and watch the WWE Superstars and Divas. They’re all heroes to us, but the real heroes are the ones who fight this disease head on and search for a cure. Hogan asks for them to give a huge round of applause to the breast cancer survivors in attendance. They show them and some of them are moved to tears as the crowd cheers for them.

When John Cena and Dean Ambrose attacked Seth Rollins, they were attacking The Authority. The Authority is more than just a moniker – they’re a family that stands by one another through thick and thin. Tonight, Ambrose embarrassed Rollins. She figured they’d be looking forward to this since they weren’t successful last week. She tells them to reestablish their dominance and squash what people are saying about them. Orton asks what people are saying. Stephanie says the people say they’ve gone soft and don’t have the killer instinct. Kane asks if “they’re” saying that or if it’s Stephanie trying to get what she wants. She asks if it really matters before walking off.
