WWE Monday Night RAW Results - January 19, 2015
RAW began with the WWE World HW champion Brock Lesnar walking to the ring, accompanied by his advocate Paul Heyman who goes to cut a promo when Brock takes it upon himself to call Rollins out for a fight. This brings out a worried Triple H who tries to reason with the upset champ that while he understands that Brock is embarassed, it was he who started the melee on the last RAW when he suplexed Rollins. This angers Lesnar more who threatens the COO, which brings out Stephanie Mcmahon along with Big Show & Kane. Rollins too appears via the titantron mocking the champion, but is interrupted by Paul Heyman who puts him down telling him that the ‘adults’ will handle the matter!
John Cena set for a stipulation match
Cena makes his way out and addresses the authority and starts calling them names. including a new one in ‘Ash-holes’! Before he can leave though, Stephanie starts taunting him and says that he is the reason 3 guys don’t have jobs anymore. Rollins joins in and tells Cena to tuck his tail and leave, but Cena responds saying he should just find the room Rollins is in and kick his ass. Cena tells the authority that he wants to sweeten the pot at the Rumbleby getting the guys’ jobs back if he wins. Triple H taunts Cena some more and instead one-ups him to offer him a match tonight which will do that if he wins it, but asks him to put something on the line too – his title shot at the Royal Rumble!
Daniel Bryan vs Bray Wyatt
It’s a hard fought match between 2 old rivals, who go at it from the very beginning. Just when Bryan takes charge, Kane walks to ring side and after being distracted for a tiny bit, Bryan loses control of the match to Wyatt, who mounts some serious offense. Just when Bryan looks to come back and score a win, Kane interferes and sets him up for Bray Wyatt to connect with a sister Abigail for the win.
Winner : Bray Wyatt
Dean Ambrose vs Bad News Barrett
In a back & forth match, Dean Ambrose kept the knee injury angle going all the while trading shots with the big-hitting Englishman.

Winner : Dean Ambrose

John Cena vs Seth Rollins, Kane & Big Show (Main – Event)
Cena is facing the authority-backed trio with the jobs of Ryback, Dolph Ziggler and Erick Rowan on the line.

Using the distraction, Cena rolls up Rollins for the win.
