*Spoilers* WWE Raw Taping Results From London, England

WWE taped this week's episode of WWE Raw Monday from the London O2 Arena in London, England. WWENews.net writer Eltimir Alexandrov attended the taping and passed along the following results:

WWE Raw (Airing tonight on the USA Network):

* Paul Heyman opens the show with a promo on Brock Lesnar's attack on 3MB last week. Heyman claims he got a text message from Triple H saying he isn't in London and would address Lesnar's challenge next week. Hunter comes out, says Heyman lied and accepts the challenge for a steel cage match against Lesnar at Extreme Rules. He concludes the segment by giving Heyman the pedigree to a massive pop from the crowd.

* R-Truth b. Antonio Cesaro in what was described as a "quick squash" match.

* Damien Sandow w/Cody Rhodes b. Brodus Clay w/Tensai, Cameron & Naomi. Sandow picked up the win thanks to a distraction from Rhodes and his infamous moustache. The crowd chanted for the mustache as well as "Albert."

* Backstage, World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler is told that if Chris Jericho beats him tonight, he'll be added to the title match at Extreme Rules with Jack Swagger and Alberto Del Rio.

* World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler b. Chris Jericho in a non-title match. The stipulation is listed above. Jericho was pinned after the entrance theme of Fandango was played, causing him to get distracted. Fandango did not appear and I'm told this was a "great match."

* WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley appeared on the titantron, offering up comments on John Cena vs. Ryback.

* Tensai b. Cody Rhodes. Damien Sandow tried to assist but was taken out by Brodus Clay.

* Backstage, Ryback hypes his WWE title match against John Cena at Extreme Rules.  Ryback also threatened Foley from earlier and said he'll see him tonight.

* Big E Langston b. Zack Ryder

* Funny backstage segment with Team Hell No. Bryan wanted to make sure everyone was on the same page, so he had constructed diagrams for Undertaker to study. Kane told him the Deadman does not follow orders and warned him not to give The Undertaker any hugs. That's when Hell No got taken out by The Shield.

* The Shield b. Undertaker & Team Hell No when Dean Ambrose pinned Daniel Bryan.  After the match, Bryan says he was hugged by Undertaker backstage. What was shown was Bryan hug it out with Kane.

* Backstage, John Cena tells Mick Foley to bring a steel chair with him later tonight.

* Fandango w/Summer Rae b. William Regal. After the match, Chris Jericho came out and attacked Fandango.

* AJ Lee won a Divas Battle Royal to become the number one contender for the WWE Divas Championship. Kaitlyn was on commentary. The match also involved Aksana, Tamina Snuka, Layla and Naomi. Tamina superkicked AJ at the beginning of the match, making her a non-factor throughout. When Layla tried to eliminate her in the go-home sequence, AJ revealed she was "playing possum" and eliminated her for the win.

* The show concluded with an in-ring confrontation between Mick Foley and Ryback. Foley told Ryback that his destiny was to one day be Champion. He asked him, however, whether he wanted to be famous for leaving Cena by himself against The Shield. As Ryback was about to attack Foley physically, John Cena came to the rescue. The Shield's music played. As they attacked Ryback, Cena got rid of them using Foley's steel chair before hitting Ryback with an Attitude Adjustment

* Fandango's theme song played as fans were exiting the arena.

    Is Cesaro in trouble backstage??

    • Moe

      Eek, I don’t like the sounds of that. :S

  • Utterly disgusted at wwe for what they are doing to Antonio.

  • Can someone please explain to me why WWE booked another show in Cardiff the same night they tape RAW. Absolutely mind-boggling stuff.

  • Taker is not in the main event :OOOO ???? INJUSTICE

  • Joey

    Fun fact: Last time RAW was broadcast from the UK, Ryback and Cena were teammates, now they’re feuding

  • Cubed56

    Other then Ziggler/Jericho and the 6 man tag, this show a sounds pretty lame.

  • Rayner Chee-bai

    Bullshit on what’s happening on Cesaro. Anyway, looking forward for The Shield vs Taker and Team Hell No. Seems great and the backstage segment…lol

  • What in the world has happened to Cesaro? Who did he tick off?

  • JYD

    Can WWE please have a title run without constant outside interference, distractions, or the champ losing in non-title matches. A good chunk of Punk’s reign was like this and now Ziggler is already being booked to look like a weak champ. To me it just continues to show WWE has no real faith in anyone but Cena.
