Last night’s WWE Raw SuperShow results from Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is episode #999 of WWE Raw and Michael Cole and Jerry “The King” Lawler are on commentary.
The main event for tonight is announced as WWE Champ CM Punk vs Big Show in a non-title match.
Punk comes out to start the show. He says a revolution started one year ago when he dropped a pipe bomb in this city. Since then he has proven he is the best in the world and has beaten everyone put in front of him, including Daniel Bryan. He says who would have thought a guy like him would be WWE Champion on the 1,00th RAW after having an 8th month reign as champion and beating everyone in his path on the way.
Out comes the Big Show. He mocks Punk’s speech as the crowd chants “Big Show sucks”. He says Cena got lucky with the briefcase win at Money in the Bank last night and he says if he had won, he would cash in his contract right now to face CM Punk. Punk goes Show a loser but Show retorts with a warning that John Cena could cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase tonight.
1) WWE Tag Team Champions Kofi Kingston & R-Truth defeated The Prime Time Players (w/AW) to retain their titles. The finish came when Truth dropped Titus O’Neil on his face for the win.
AJ Lee is backstage texting when Daniel Bryan walks up to her. They both apologise for everything that has gone on. Bryan says he has no hidden motives or agendas, he just got caught up in trying to be WWE Champion and made AJ the scapegoat. Bryan says he has acted all wrong these past few months. He is interrupted by Eve Torres. She is still upset about Bryan ditching her in the tag match last week. Eve says she has spoke to the Board of Directors and tonight it will be Bryan & AJ vs Eve and a partner of her choosing. AJ asks Bryan what he was going to say before Eve interrupted. He kisses her on the cheek and says he will let her know after their match tonight.
2) Alberto Del Rio (w/Ricardo Rodriguez) defeated Zack Ryder when Del Rio applied the cross arm breaker on Ryder for the win.
Post-match Del Rio begins an attack on Ryder but Rey Mysterio’s music hits and he comes out to a big pop to go at it with Del Rio. He hits the 619 and sends Del Rio to the floor.
More 1,000th Raw hype as Heath Slater talks about his last few weeks and the run-ins with Legends. Michael Cole says another legend will be making their return tonight.
After the break Slater is in the ring and waiting for his opponent. It’s Rikishi who comes out to a decent but not great pop from the crowd.
3) Rikishi defeated Heath Slater with the big splash for a quick win.

After the break, Eve Torres introduces her mystery partner for tonight is The Miz.
4) AJ Lee & Daniel Bryan defeated Eve Torres & The Miz when AJ had the ref distracted that allowed Bryan to help AJ get the pinfall.
After the match the fans are chanting “YES” and Bryan tells AJ that he loves her. Bryan gets a ring from a crew member at ringside and he admits he lied to her last week because he wanted to win the WWE title. Bryan is for real this week and drops to his knees to propose. AJ hesitates but Bryan puts the ring on her finger and he puts the microphone to her and she says yes. They kiss as some of the crowd boos and join in with a NO chant.
It’s announced that Daniel Bryan and AJ Lee’s wedding will take place next week.
5) Ryback defeated Jack Swagger when Ryback hits three power bombs on Swagger and the match was stopped. He rolls him out of the ring and yells “Feed me more” as his music plays. Swagger’s stock gets lower with each passing week.
Vickie Guerrero comes out and introduces Dolph Ziggler in a suit, holding the Money in the Bank briefcase. He says everyone is looking at the next World Heavyweight Champion and it’s just a matter of time until he cashes it in on Sheamus. He says he will be the best champion in history when he wins, better than Bret Hart, Steve Austin and The Rock.
Jericho hits the ring and Ziggler says tonight isn’t about Y2J and he is not about to steal his spotlight. Ziggler says he won Money in the Bank and Jericho didn’t. Ziggler ask when was the last time Ziggler won anything and that he has everyone fooled believing the hype. Jericho hasn’t said anything since coming out and Ziggler wonders if he is losing his touch when suddenly Jericho hits the Codebreaker out of nowhere. Jericho starts to get a small face chant from the crowd.
Can we hope Ziggler vs Jericho at WWE SummerSlam is coming?
It’s announced that next week’s RAW will see DX kicking things off and Brock Lesnar responding to Triple H’s challenge. The Rock’s return is also hyped, among others.

After the match Big Show beats Punk down and John Cena’s music hits just before Show is about to hit the WMD knockout punch. Cena has the briefcase and looks like he is going to cash in his briefcase. Show taunts him to do it. Instead Cena tells Punk to wait one week for the biggest match of his life at Raw 1,000th when they will find out who the best in the world really is.
Cena vs Punk for the WWE title is announced for next week’s historic Raw.
Show still wants him to cash in his briefcase but Cena just plonks Show on the head with it instead. Raw goes off the air with Cena and Punk meeting in the middle of the ring as Punk raises his WWE title in the air.
