No champion's entrance for DB? Bullocks, Triple H! #RAW
4/7/14, 10:59 PM
No match so far, just Randy + Batista coming out to beat up Daniel Bryan. And Kane comes out to join. Fans chanting 3MB, actually a nice joke there.

Now Triple H comes out. Twitter is silent as fo right now. Okay, one more update after this.

10:57 pm They start coming back from the break with a recap of the early bit of the show
thesteelcage
We the people! RT @LittleSherbie: Well, this solves the Real Americans music custody issue. #RAW
4/7/14, 10:47 PM
Backstage stuff. Steph talking to the Shield and Kane, motivating the Shield that Daniel Bryan's championship is an "injustice." I'm worried if the Shield starts doing the right thing, that the fans will turn on them. I hope the fans stick behind them if they do the "right thing."

Another commercial break now. But before that:

4/7/14, 10:39 PM (Enzo Amore, another one of my favorites in NXT)
Paul Heyman holding the Andre the Giant part of the trophy, which is all that's left. As if it's the belt, when CM Punk held it.
davidbix
Cesaro-Swagger is NOW and Heyman clutching Andre is amazing #raw
4/7/14, 10:40 PM
Thinking, I wonder if Cesaro-Heyman pairing is so Heyman can stick around while Brock takes his mandatory-I-just-made-this-up-part-time-wrestlers-union break.
davidbix
Why yes, he DID hit the deadlift superplex on Swagger #raw

Cesaro is a damn freak
4/7/14, 10:43 PM
Swagger leaves the match, walks away, and Cesaro is your winner. Maybe setting up for a PPV match, which I think is three weeks away.

Oh oh! Zeb doing, his pattented finger-walk-border-sneak gesture. Oh how I've missed that.

6-man tag being promoted for Main Event tomorrow night. Shield v. Wyatts.

The crowd chanting, "CE-SAR-O" And out he comes.

Crowd “singing” Cesaro’s entrance music of course #RAW

4/7/14, 10:33 PM
The crowd chanting, "King of Swing." Jack Swagger comes out, and breaks the trophy and kicks Cesaro out of the ring.

Commercial break now.

 On the app, Brad Maddox comes out. He makes a match out of it, as we all expected.

He’s not a heel or a babyface. He’s Paul Heyman. #RAW

Eh, let’s be real. He’s a heel and this is setting up Cesaro-Lesnar, which…umm…!!!!!!!! #RAW

10:24 pm And AJ is out at the ring with Tamina. I was surprised she came out on top last night, but well, good for her. Now she's on the mic.

She's been champion for 295 days, indeed. Fans are cheering for her.

9:52 pm And out comes Rusev, escorted and introduced by Lana. Oh fuck, he's against Zack Ryder. Damn, sorry Zack, and I like you too.

4/7/14, 9:49 PM

Oh.. Zack Ryder is wrestling.
4/7/14, 9:51 PM
And that's it. So, that took, maybe two minutes, for Rusev to beat Ryder. Glad what they're doing with Ryder's career, NOT. (That's still cool, right?)

9:47 pm Back now, Rey Mysterio is up next. I hope the crowd goes easy on him, but I'm doubtful. He's up against Wade Barrett. Oh thank goodness, I'm just glad he's back, able to wrestle. And so is everyone else apparently.

WWE saying "Adam Rose" is trending. I hope it is, I even liked him when he was Leo Kruger, and I hope he works out well when he gets to the WWE.

And there's your match, RVD convincingly beats Damien Sandow.

Man, I'm serious this booing is strong against the face team. Fans are totally over for the Wyatts. Big-E earns some cheers for strong personal effort.

8:23pm - Starting late, but I enjoy keeping track of Raw this way. So far, we've had Daniel Bryan come out with an awesome crowd and everybody seems to be relishing his victory from last night.

But, Triple HHH seems to be adamant in trying to take the title, and vows to do so tonight in a Main Event against Daniel Bryan.

But first, 6-man tag with The Wyatt's against Cena, Sheamus, and Big E.
