WWE Monday Night Raw opened with a video recap of Daniel Bryan joining The Wyatt Family and the show itself opened with The Usos in the ring waiting for Bray Wyatt and Daniel Bryan for the first match. The match was a decent one, but ended when both Bray and Bryan were on the mat and The Usos headed up for the frog splash, only for Luke Harper and Erick Rowan to run in for the automatic DQ.

After the match, they tried to take out The Usos, but failed as Daniel Bryan ate a superkick and they ran. After The Usos got away, Bryan Wyatt whispered something to Daniel Bryan and then hit the Sister Abigail on him after Bryan allowed it. The four then walked out together.

The next match was immediately after the next commercial and saw Damien Sandow take on John Cena. The announcers mentioned how Sandow’s recent slump started when he failed in his cash in of the Money in the Bank briefcase and lost to John Cena last year. Sandow turned in a great performance, but it never really looked like Sandow would win. The end came when Sandow used Cena’s own finishing move, the STF, only for Cena to no-sell his own submission hold by lifting Sandow, while locked in the hold, and hitting the AA for the win.

WWE Monday Night Raw then highlighted the announcement of the WWE Network. After that, Kane and Brad Maddox met up backstage. Kane told Maddox to get control of the talent, so Maddox made a rematch tonight pitting Bray Wyatt and Daniel Bryan against The Usos in a steel cage. Kane said it was a great idea, but he had a better one. The door will be chained closed and he will have the only key.

The next match saw Big Show coming down to the ring and his opponent is Jack Swagger. Big Show won the match easily in a squash as the WWE tries to make him look strong again heading into his match with Brock Lesnar. After the match, he went after Antonio Cesaro, who ran away. After that, he went after Zeb Colter, and knocked him out.

The New Age Outlaws came out next and gave their always awesome introduction and then introduced their partner for this match CM Punk. This will be a rematch from last week’s WWE Smackdown episode with The Shield. CM Punk fought a great match, but at the end he went to tag out and the New Age Outlaws walked out on him (looks like Triple H got his old DX partners to set up Punk). After that, Roman Reigns hit the spear and pinned Punk again. After the match, they triple powerbombed CM Punk and left him lying in the ring.

Backstage, Bray Wyatt cuts a short promo about tonight’s steel cage match and then Daniel Bryan said they will be monsters inside the cage.

Back from break is another match, as this WWE Monday Night Raw is all about the wrestling with little to no fewer. This match sees the Funkadactyls taking on Diva’s champion AJ Lee and Tamina Snuka. AJ Lee picked up a clean win with the Shining Wizard. After the match, AJ sicked Tamina on Cameron, but Naomi came back and cleared the ring to save her partner.

Randy Orton is in the back and is looking for Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. He then showed up to Kane and said that he knows that Triple H is hiding from him. Kane booked Orton to battle Kofi Kingston in a match tonight. That match was a fantastic match between Orton and Kingston and ended when Kofi hit the STO on Orton and actually got the upset win over the WWE World Champion. After the match, Orton lost control, went out of the ring and knocked out John Cena’s dad, who was sitting in the front row. That brought out Cena, who called the doctors over to help him dad.

Up next was the world tag team champions Goldust and Cody Rhodes vs. Ryback and Curtis Axel. The champions won the match when Cody Rhodes pinned Curtis Axel.

The next WWE Monday Night Raw saw Rey Mysterio head out to face Alberto Del Rio. It is nice to see the Del Rio vs. Sin Cara matches finally end for now. Alberto Del Rio won the match by making Rey Mysterio tap out. After the match, Del Rio called out Batista again.

CM Punk went to question Kane about The New Age Outlaws turning on him, and he said that he blamed Triple H for calling for it to happen. Kane said The Authority had nothing to do with it, but Punk was going to be in the Royal Rumble match and if he has a problem with that, he has a problem with Kane. Punk said he has no problem with that, but he does have a problem with Kane.

The main event is next with Bray Wyatt and Daniel Bryan taking on The Usos in a steel cage match. Kane came down before the match started and chained the cage door closed. The match was a hard fought match, but surprisingly The Usos won the match. After the match, The Usos took out Luke Harper and Erick Rowan and left in celebration. Bray Wyatt wanted to take out Daniel Bryan again in punishment, but Bryan turned on Bray.

Daniel Bryan started beating the crap out of Bray Wyatt and every fan that was losing interest in him over the last few weeks were back on his side in an instant. The crowd went nuts, chanting yes the entire time Bryan was kicking Wyatt. Finally, at the end, Bryan finished off Bray Wyatt with the running knee. WWE Monday Night Raw ended with Daniel Bryan sitting on top of the cage leading the crowd in a chant of “YES.”
