My Fantasy WWE: 29/07/2013 Monday Night Raw
Welcome to another edition of My Fantasy Raw. As I'm playing catch up, lets get straight underway.
- In Ring Segment: CM Punk calls out Brock Lesnar. Instead, Paul Heyman comes out with Curtis Axel and Roman Reigns. Heyman suggests Punk finds a tag team partner and face Axel & Reigns tonight.
- Backstage Interview: Ryback tells Scott Stanford the only reason Mark Henry quit Raw last week was because Henry is afraid of him.
- The Money Makers (with Zack Ryder & Divas Champion AJ Lee) defeated The Prime Time Players (with Teddy Long) to retain the World Tag Team Championship (Time of contest - 06:37) AJ slaps Teddy Long outside the ring. This causes Darren Young and Ted DiBiase to protect their respective managers and fight outside the ring. This distracts the referee. Zack Ryder throws one of the title belts to Drew McIntyre. McIntyre hits Titus O'Neil with the belt before covering for the win.
- Backstage Segment: Kane approaches CM Punk. He asks Punk to pick him as his partner tonight as he badly wants to get his hands on Axel and Reigns. Punk accepts.
- Damien Sandow (with Jack Swagger) defeated R-Truth (Time of contest - 05:02) Sandow wins with the Terminus.
- Backstage Interview: The Miz says he will win back the Intercontinental Championship tonight. Rey Mysterio interrupts and asks The Miz what he was doing last week. The Miz ignores Mysterio and walks away.
- Rob Van Dam (c) defeated The Miz to retain the Intercontinental Championship (Time of contest - 12:26) RVD beats The Miz with the Five Star Frog Splash in a back and forth contest.
- After the match, Rey Mysterio makes his way to the ring. Mysterio raises RVD's arm in the air. Rey then extends his hand to The Miz. Miz walks straight past it and leaves the ring.
- Backstage Segment: Paul Heyman is giving Curtis Axel and Roman Reigns some advice on their match tonight.
- In Ring Segment: Daniel Bryan talks about his bad record against Wade Barrett at SummerSlam. He recalls being pinned by Barrett in 2010 in the seven on seven elimination match as well as losing one on one to Barrett the following year at SummerSlam. Bryan says this year will be different as he becomes the new WWE Champion. Damien Sandow and Jack Swagger interrupt. They both insult Bryan. GM JBL comes out and makes Bryan vs Swagger now.
- Daniel Bryan defeated Jack Swagger (with Damien Sandow) (Time of contest - 09:57) In a great wrestling match, Bryan makes Swagger submit to the Yes Lock.
- After the match, Damien Sandow goes after Daniel Bryan. Bryan manages to turn it around and applies the Yes Lock on Sandow. Swagger recovers and breaks up the hold. Swagger and Sandow double team Bryan. The WWE Champion Wade Barrett then comes out. Barrett lifts up an already beaten Bryan and hits Wasteland. Barrett stands over Bryan.
- Backstage Interview: The Money Makers brag about McIntyre & DiBiase retaining the World Tag Team titles earlier on. Sheamus interrupts and makes fun of all four members. McIntyre, DiBiase and Ryder tripe team Sheamus as AJ Lee watches on laughing.
- Fandango (with Summer Rae) defeated Santino Marella (Time of contest - 03:35) Fandango wins with the high angle diving leg drop.
- Backstage Interview: The WWE Champion Wade Barrett says everyone better get used to seeing him stand over Daniel Bryan while holding the WWE title high above his head because that's exactly what will happen at SummerSlam. Damien Sandow and Jack Swagger interrupt. Swagger reminds Barrett it was them that took Bryan out, not Barrett. Sandow says 'You're welcome' before they walk off.
- Natalya defeated Brie Bella (with Nikki Bella) (Time of contest - 03:27) Natalya makes Brie submit to the Sharpshooter.
- After the match, the Divas Champion AJ Lee comes out and makes fun of Natalya.
- Curtis Axel & Roman Reigns (with Paul Heyman) defeated CM Punk & Kane (Time of contest - 11:03) As the match progresses, Kane takes down Curtis Axel. Both men crawl to their corners to try and tag their partners in. Suddenly, Brock Lesnar's music hits. Punk jumps off the apron and starts walking up the ramp. There's no sign of Lesnar though. Axel tags in Roman Reigns. Kane is screaming for Punk to come back. When Kane turns round, Reigns hits him with a Spear as Punk starts making his way back to the ring. He's too late to stopping the 1, 2, 3 though.
- The show ends with Heyman, Axel and Reigns celebrating as Punk is disgraced with himself for falling for their plan.
