Monday Night RAW Recap:- 12/1/14

On the first day of December, the first RAW of December, the build to TLC went through Tulsa, Oklahoma. The night began with the former Authority and Team Cena members waging war. Not only did that war result in John Cena vs. Seth Rollins in a tables at TLC, but Cena ended up going through a table with an emphatic statement. Also, Bray Wyatt tried getting further in Dean Ambrose mind, only to realize that sending the lunatic fringe off the deep end was not the best idea. Paul Heyman hyped the beast and a melee concluded the evenings festivities.


Tag Team Turmoil:- Gold & Stardust vs. The New Day vs. Adam Rose & The Bunny vs. Cesaro & Tyson Kidd vs. The Usos

An interesting twist to determine the new number one contenders for The Miz and Damien Mizdow's tag team championships. The Dust Brothers and The New Day started the match and after some back and forth action, The New Day (Kofi & Big E) defeated The Dust Brothers. This brought out Cesaro and Kidd who defeated The New Day after a distraction from the Dust Brothers. The Uso's were out next and the duo defeated Cesaro & Kidd and Adam Rose & The Bunny to become the new #1 contenders.

After the match, a melee ensues but Team Cena stands tall as RAW goes off the air.

A completely awful RAW this week. Many people said it online but the fact of the matter is that the podcast with Stone Cold Steve Austin and Vince McMahon was better than the entire RAW. Sloppy booking, random matches and John Cena standing tall. Nothing new, nothing original and nothing done properly.

Rating:- 4/10
