WWE Raw Results – April 7th, 2014

We open Monday Night Raw with Daniel Bryan, our new WWE World Heavyweight Champion! The New Orleans crowd goes absolutely insane! Daniel jokes around, asking if the crowd gets tired and how hard it is to do the yes chant with two titles. The crowd begins to chant you deserve it and Bryan says its them who deserve it. He says the yes chant is all about the power the people have. He says because of them he is standing in the ring as champion. Out comes Triple H and Stephanie.

Triple H says he won’t step in the ring because he doesn’t want to do something he will regret. Bryan then goes up to him and shoves the titles in his face. Triple H says this moment won’t last, and that it won’t even last tonight. He then says he will defend the title tonight against him! He says he will end the yes movement and that the reality is that it is Triple H’s show and he can’t do nothing about it. Daniel Bryan begins a Yes chant as Triple H and Stephanie walk away.

He then says to read the shirt, and puts Brock over some more.  Heyman says that Brock is here to shock the world and create tears from children. He then says that after Undertaker left the stage he collapsed. He said he has a severe concussion and almost had a broken neck. Heyman says that Brock would not have stopped until the streak was done. Heyman says he doesn’t get how everyone gave Undertaker a standing ovation, when Undertaker was a loser.

Heyman than says everyone in the crowd tonight is like everyone in the back, which is a bunch of wannabes. He says no one respects Brock, which is okay because Brock respects no one. Heyman says no one in the back has switched to octagon because they are wannabes. He says people came up to him and said they could have broken the streak, but then he asks why couldn’t they. He says Brock is the one and he will always be the one in 21 and 1. He says there are legends, hall of famers, and WWE Superstars. He says the most important part of that is that those words are plural. There is never going to be a plural when it comes to Brock Lesnar and the accomplishment in breaking the streak. Heyman and Brock then leave.

  • Bryan Thomas

  • matthewgarriet

    tonight is going to be amazing

  • luke1992

    heel crown tonite just hope DB retains and kick HHH arse again

  • Bryan Thomas

    Who will be the first to rant about the undertaker? Hahaha

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/TimPhilly317 TimPhillips

    This crowd is making this one of the best Raw shows I’ve ever seen. I’ve remarked at how disrespectful crowds can be but I have to take that back, when the crowd refuses to accept the same old nonsense WWE presents it makes for a great viewing experience.

    and the entire Wyatt family getting cheered…ha ha. I still don’t know what to make of that.

    • Jesse Reid

      Agreed. I love that everyone loves the Wyatt’s.

    • ksedude

      Proud of my city :D
      By the way, yes the Wyatt’s are awesome. Bray was extremely over with the crowd last night, it was great. Best match of the night for me.

      • Ryanbu23

        It isn’t your city. it’s people from all over the world.

        • ksedude

          You have a point, although I’m pretty sure not everyone who was at WM was at Raw as well. You make it sound like I tried to steal the credit lol. Yeah I read the stats people from all 50 states and 37 countries.

  • Yusei Asakura

    Soo HHH basically says if things go right they’ll be powerful. Evolution Return? Considering They’re going to break up The Shield. Shield Makes the Save tonight in the HHH Vs DB Match and leads to Shield vs Evolution for one night only?

    • Jesse Reid

      Even though I hate Batista right now.. That would be awesome!

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/TimPhilly317 TimPhillips

    Everyone on the internet likes to make “Am I the only one?” comments but I’m 99% sure I’m the ONLY person in the world that’s stoked about Lesnar breaking the streak.

  • luke1992

    i wish some 1 would of shut paul haymen up

  • Zachary Lee Simpson

    Sweet a Bo Dallas and a Adam Rose vignette hopefully Paige or Sami Zayn get one

  • Yusei Asakura

    Eh I got my closure about the Streak. Reading the article about it and then going back digging up the other articles. My only question is Why did he decide to put Brock Over? Was it because of the whole thing with Steve not wanting to Drop to him? Personally Yes I am pissed that it was still dropped to a part timer but It’s over only “top” people were claimed to had known how the finish would go even then I still have my Theory that this match/story was the true reason why punk said what he said but couldn’t ruin takers match and now that WM30 is over hopefully we can true dig some “opinions” from him about this to see if this was the actual cause

    • ksedude

      I seriously doubt that he did it because of what Steve did over 10 years ago. You are referring to when he went home rather than lose to Lesnar right?
      I know Lesnar obviously is into MMA, and Taker is an MMA fan. They may be friends off camera and Taker may have wanted to bow out, and felt that breaking the streak was his way to do it. He may have picked Brock because of a real life friendship, that’s my opinion.

    • ksedude

      As far as Punk, I guess it’s possible Heyman knew and mentioned it to Punk. Punk had just lost to Taker and may have felt that the rub going to him would have been what he needed to be the next big time player he wanted to be. Lesnar is a part-timer and to be honest I don’t see him committing fully to WWE or even fully appreciating what he has been given.

      • prabhat

        but cmpunk choose his way. and also he is not come to fight in wrestlemenia. so lets vote

        you want to see cmpunk
        please voters choose option edit and write in n.o form
        yes –

        no-

  • Raihan Khan

    taker wanted brock to beat him so why do we argue

    • Yusei Asakura

      Yep Found all the old articles Even the one with the “Stare” off at that UFC Match lol Everything made sense

  • Cody Cosmos

    Great RAW, love post-WrestleMania crowds like this.

  • cj

    Paige vs Aj. FINALLY !!!!

  • cj

    Seeing HHH and Stephanie’s entrance takes me back to 2000 lol. It’s weird they were defying authority back then and now they’re back together on screen as the Authority

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/TimPhilly317 TimPhillips

    A hot crowd, ROH alumni in top spots (and Daniel Bryan being the champ), the return of RVD, the Wyatt family getting cheered, a divas match getting a positive reception, a temporary Evolution reunion, very good matches…NOTHING wrong with Raw as far as I’m concerned. Top to bottom perfect and that hasn’t happened in a LONG time. I only have one complaint and it has to do with next week’s Raw where things are bound to get back to normal…but right now I’m very satisfied. An excited crowd translates into more energy for the performers and that translates into an incredible show…it’s just a damn shame it can’t last all year like it did a decade ago.

  • ksedude

    I honestly feel that Lesnar should have shown a little respect to Taker. Heel or not. I understand the concept of heat, I know someone portrayed as a “rage fueled beast” doesn’t shake hands with someone he beats or says he respects them. I just think Taker deserved to at least get a nod in his direction from Lesnar out of respect or SOMETHING. The audience may have been just a little more accepting. Idk maybe I’m crazy.

  • deekshit

    The Shield and Daniel Bryan

  • Stoney53

    Got to give HHH and Batista some respect. They both lose at Mania to Bryan with Batista even tapping out to end he show, and now in the first RAW back they both accept beatdowns with HHH taking it from the Shield now too. Can’t really spout off about the “ego” issues anymore.

    We also seem to forget that HHH is new to this. He’s never had this much responsibility for the company behind the scenes and it’s taken him awhile to fill into his position. I think he’s learned how to work with creative to put a good product on television. He’s got a ways to go and will continue to have a bad show here and there, but it’s getting better. I think everybody just expected things would be perfect or figured that Vince was still calling every shot. I think if more fans realized that HHH and Stephanie are going to have growing pains while taking more creative control, they wouldn’t freak out so fast when story lines don’t to come to fruition or play out quick enough.

  • sunil kumar bhargava

    What a shame hhh and stephaine bigman? What the hell stop you to understand what is good for business? You two are loosing time to mend your past sins. Truth prevailed with daniel brayan. I again repeat wwe board of directors are sleeping. God bless them.

  • Yusei Asakura

    LOL How did I call that ending? ‘Turning one face and the other two heel Nah It cant happen now As much as I hate to admit it Batista Orton and HHH Need to Feud with The Shield I don’t know what you do with DB until then but Hey This is just too good to pass up on Giving all 3 members of the shield a push like this? Even if Roman is suppose to be the “next” Cena If wwe does this right The shield can break up being one of the greatest tag teams up there with “DX=Attitude Era DX” And a few others

  • Amrit

    great team shield and daniel bryan

  • Bryan Thomas

    This is how RAW needs to be. Dammit. First step toward a new direction

  • Necro

    - Wyatt Family still over even after Cena won
    – Emma getting featured more, she and Paige are the best divas alongside AJ Lee so it’s a good sign towards the future especially after her dance is catching on like Fandangoing!
    – Brock Lesnar might actually do something great now that he’s beaten the streak, maybe be a valid contender for the title in the future if he appears more?
    -Disliked the burial of the Usos but it was for a bigger storyline in the potential reunion of Evolution, can’t have both so I’ll accept this.
    -Rob Van Dam is back and he always produces excellent matches, maybe can fight Ambrose or Langston for the title?
    -Dislike the use of Sandow though, something must be up that he’s in the doghouse or something. He went from MiTB holder to a jobber to RVD? C’mon man….I really wonder what Sandow did.
    -Bad News Barrett actually in action, I even like his gimmick this time around and he could be a solid mid-carder while the big guys are going for WHC.
    -Rusev is a great talent, reminds me of Samoa Joe a lot, has big potential and putting over Ryder who imo I don’t care much for, he’s just an internet personality, the big foreign angle will work for him definitely.
    -I LOVE PAIGE! This might be the most biased part of the post but I don’t care. Seeing a Paige vs AJ feud = GOLD! Thank you WWE! The women’s division might be saved!
    -Cesaro is the new Paul Heyman guy? I like it! Hopefully he doesn’t become like Curtis Axel or Ryback because that would be a big shame, but I’m optimistic he’ll go over at THE RIGHT TIME. Maybe after WM 31 he’ll be headlining main events? Time will tell but he’s a huge talent for the future.
    -The Shield is now on a complete face turn and Daniel Bryan is still the champ! What’s there to complain about?
    -Shield vs Evolution will be a match of the year candidate since there are 5 guys who can carry a match and well there’s Batista who can have some spots here and there. Tag matches is where he will thrive.

    Overall this Raw was probably better than last years’ post WM Raw and it was awesome! Can’t wait to see what’s in store! 10/10!

  • luke1992

    who is face/heel outta swagger and cesaro now

  • Latoya

    I think I’ll wait until Smackdown or Raw next week before I assume their tuning a new leaf. I hope they continue using their new talent, it wad a VERY good show. I will admit that.
