Dean Ambrose opens WWE Monday Night Raw. He said that there is nothing that he wants more than to beat up Seth Rollins in a Hell in a Cell. However, he has to deal with John Cena. He said that it is clear that The Authority is protecting their Golden Boy by having him and Cena beat each other up before they face Rollins. He said that he will grab the contract, beat Cena senseless with it and then destroy Rollins.
John Cena is out. He said that he had some veteran advice for Ambrose – shut up and get ready for the biggest match of his life. Ambrose told John Cena to stop patronizing him and to stop pretending like he cares. Cena tells Ambrose that he is way out of his league and way over his head. Ambrose looks ready to fight but …
The Authority is out. They make fun of Ambrose and Cena threatening each other. Triple H thinks that, if they teamed up, they would fight each other. Stephanie McMahon doesn’t agree. They make a bet and book Ambrose and Cena to face The Usos and the tag team champions Goldust and Stardust in a triple threat tag team match.
The match was a really good one, with all three teams looking good. The end started when Stardust actually landed on his feet from the Attitude Adjustment. Then, The Usos threw Goldust and Stardust out of the ring and then hit Uso-Crazy on them. Then, John Cena went to the top buckle and hit a flying press onto all four of them. Then, Dean Ambrose didn’t want to be one-upped, went up top and hit a flying elbow from the top buckle onto all five. Ambrose threw the Dust Brothers back in the ring, tossed Cena back in and then Ambrose and Cena both hit their finishing moves and won the match.
The Authority is out next and announced that John Cena and Dean Ambrose will fight tonight for the Hell in a Cell contract to face Seth Rollins.
AJ Lee is out next for a tag team match. Her partner is Layla, and AJ Lee promises that she won’t walk out on her like she walked out on Emma last week. They are facing Paige and Alicia Fox. When AJ Lee tried to tag in Layla, Layla walked out on AJ Lee. However, Lee hit the Shining Wizard onto Fix and pinned her. Then, AJ Lee chased Layla up the ramp, slammed her face into the steel ramp and then tossed her into the guard rails twice before skipping off smiling.

Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler is up next against Randy Orton. Cesaro is at ringside on commentary. The match was shocking. Dolph Ziggler dominated the entire first part of the match. He even blocked Orton’s hangman’s DDT and just countered everything Orton tried. Then, before the commercial break in the match, Seth Rollins came out with his MitB briefcase. This match was awesome. Orton ended up winning when Ziggler went for the Fame-Asser but Orton caught him, threw him into the air and hit the RKO as Ziggler fell. Orton looked very impressed in Ziggler. After the match, Seth Rollins came in the ring and hit the Curb Stomp on Ziggler while he was down. Orton looked kind of pissed about this.

Rollins and Orton got in each other’s faces after the match. Rollins ended up leaving the ring.

He turned and Big Show knocked him out.
Renee talks to Sheamus backstage about Miz and Damien Mizdow. Sheamus is then out to the ring for the match against The Miz. Mizdow spent the entire match outside the ring mimicking every move The Miz made. Why do people slap Sheamus in the face? It is just suicidal. Miz goes out of the ring and heads under it. Sheamus gives chase, but Brogue Kicks Mizdow but Miz slides in the ring from the other side to beat the count and wins the match by countout.
Backstage, the good girls from Total Divas are talking to NeNe Leakes when the bad girls walk by and Cameron taunts NeNe before walking off.

Seth Rollins also comes out before the match starts. Randy Orton also then comes out. Then, for some reason, Kane comes out and leads Rollins and Orton to the ring. Cena and Ambrose actually fought up the entrance and Ambrose suplexed Cena on the steel stage. Ambrose broke the STF by biting Cena’s thumb – awesome. Orton made fun of Ambrose for fighting Cena outside of the ring so Ambrose sucker punched him. It looked like Kane was getting ready to fight when Cena attacked Ambrose. He then threw Ambrose into Orton, Kane and Rollins and rolled into the ring. Orton attacks Cena. Ambrose tries to save Cena but Kane and Rollins run in. Rollins runs away and Kane tries to choke slam Ambrose. Cena makes the save and hits the Attitude Adjustment on Kane. However, while he is doing that, Ambrose races up the top buckle. He then smiles at Cena when he turns around, does the “you can’t see me” motion and pulls down the contract.
