Due  to  a  lot  of  delays  and  since  I  didn’t  cover  Royal  Rumble  2014,  here’s  RAW  in  case  you  missed  it:

From  The  Quicken  Loans  Arena  in  Cleveland,  Ohio:

Hosted  by  John  “Bradshaw”  Layfield  (JBL),  Michael  Cole  and  WWE  Hall  of  Famer  Jerry  “The  King”  Lawler.

HOUR  1:

The  Authority  (Principal  Owner  of  WWE  Stephanie  McMahon-Helmsley  and  Triple  H/Hunter  Hearst  Helmsley)  praised   Royal  Rumble  2014,  but  Hunter  knew  that  the  crowd  wasn’t  happy.  Stephanie  announced  that  WWE  World  Heavyweight  Champion  Randy  Orton  will  defend  the title  at  the  Elimination  Chamber,  but  was  interrupted  by  Daniel  Bryan  who  urged  everyone  not  to  chant  “Yes!”  because  The  Authority  hates  it.  Daniel  stated  that  people  asked  why  he  wasn’t  in  the  Rumble  Match,  and  that  he  asked  to  be  in  it.  Stephanie  told  him  that  he  was  kept  out  of  the  match  because  she  “cared  about  his  health”.  She  also  expressed  concern  about  his  time  with  The  Wyatt  Family  (Bray  Wyatt,  Erick  Rowan  and  Luke  Harper,  but  he  mentioned  battling  them  and  The  Shield  (WWE  United  States  Champion  Dean  Ambrose,  Seth  Rollins  and  Roman  Reigns).

Daniel  demanded  to  be  in  the  Chamber  Match,  and  refused  to  leave  until  it  was  met.  The  Shield  arrived  as  Daniel  was  ready  to  fight  with  a  steel  chair.  Dean  Ambrose  and  Roman  Reigns  assaulted  him  until  Sheamus,  who  returned  during  the  Rumble  Match  and  John  Cena  fought  them  off.

1.  TAG  TEAM  MATCH:  Sin  Cara  and  Rey  Misterio,  Jr.   vs.  The  Real  Americans  (Antonio  Cesaro  and  Jack  Swagger)  with  Zeb  Coulter.

THE  WINNERS:  THE  REAL  AMERICANS.

#Bad  News  Barrett  announced  that  Cleveland  citizens  The  Miz  and  Dolph  Ziggler  will  be  in  a  match  that  he  called  “The  Battle  of  Cleveland”.  He  stated  that  he’s  happy  that  the  match  isn’t  “The  Battle  For  Cleveland”,  because  he  views  all  of  Cleveland  as  losers.

2.  Fandango  with  Summer  Rae  vs.  R-Truth  with  Xavier  Woods.

Xavier  Woods  served  as  the  Special  Guest  Commentator  for  this  match.

THE  WINNER:  R-TRUTH!!!

RAW  General  Manager  Brad  Maddox  introduced  WWE  World  Heavyweight  Champion  Randy  Orton  as  he  spoke  about  retaining  the  title,  and  was  furious  from  being  told  that  he  had  will  face  five  opponents  in  the  Elimination  Chamber  next  month.  He  asked  Brad  if  it  was  an  idea  of  his,  or  The  Authority,  but  was  interrupted  by  2014  Royal  Rumble  Winner  Batista!!!  He  congratulated  Randy  on  his  victory,  but  reminded  him  that  he  came  back  for  the  title,  and  that  he  doesn’t  care  who  he  has  to  face.  He  vowed  that  he  will  leave  Wrestlemania  30  with  the  title.  After  that,  Brock  Lesnar  and  Paul  Heyman  appeared!!!  Heyman  demanded  that  Orton  face  Lesnar  for  the  title,  and  that  Batista  face  Lesnar!!!

This  went  into  the  first  six  minutes  of  Hour  2.

THE  REFEREE  STOPPED  THE  MATCH  WHEN  BROCK  LESNAR  F-5’D  GOLDUST  AND  CODY  RHODES.  PAUL  HEYMAN  ANNOUNCED  THAT  THE  AUTHORITY  REJECTED  BROCK’S  DEMANDS,  AND  HE  ASSAULTED  GOLDUST  AND  CODY  WITH  A  STEEL  CHAIR.
