RAW Results April 7, 2014
From New Orleans
Reported on by Kendra Bunyon For Wrestling News World
We saw the end of the Streak. Brock and Heyman will be there. And then there’s what Bryan pulled off at WrestleMania. All that and more on RAW.
Recap of Bryan’s career before and into the first season of NXT, short hair and clean shaven. To Superstar of The Year, the flying goat, and the leader of #YesMovement. Trip stepped in and took Bryan down at SummerSlam, made sure Orton was WWE WHC. The ultimate underdog, the B+ player, stood up to The Authority, took over the love of the WWE ‘Universe’. Through it all Bryan kept going, and got Trip at WrestleMania, and the stip for the main event. He went into WrestleMania and won it all.
In Ring Segment
The fans in New Orleans are chanting “YES!” as the video ends. Justin announces the new WWE WHC, Daniel Bryan. Bryan out and the chants get louder. One belt around his waist, the new WWE Champ strap in hand. “Daniel Bryan!” chants. Bryan soaks it all up, grinning through the continuing chanting that just isn’t stopping, even to hear him talk.
Bryan – You guys never get tired, do ya?
“NO!” “NO!” “NO!”
Bryan – Be careful, I don’t want you to hit your neighbor. I don’t think you know hard it is to do this holding two titles.
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Bryan – I’ll do it one more time, but then have to give my shoulders a break.
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Bryan – It’s funny because it was a little over two years ago that I started doing this, and the day after WrestleMania everyone here and at home chanting that one word.
“You deserve it!”
Bryan – I might deserve it a little bit, but you deserve it. When I started Yessing, it’s not a hand gesture, a movement, it’s not about positive thinking, it’s about the power that we all have to make change. Because of your power, last night I beat The Authority at WrestleMania XXX and I stand here as the new WWE WHC!
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Trip’s music hits and out he comes to the ring, looking rather surly, with Steph in tow in a black dress. Heat for Trip. “You sold out!” and “Asshole!” chants for Trip. They stay on the apron.
Trip – I’m not gonna step into the ring Daniel Bryan because I don’t want to do something to you that I’m going to regret. At least not yet.
Bryan – Wait, wait, wait, you’re not gonna get in the ring?
Bryan takes a belt in each hand, goes over to Trip and gets the huge “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” going again. The fans are wild and loving it.
Trip – Enjoy your moment, because that’s all this is Daniel, a moment. It’s not gonna last. We all know it. It can’t last. It won’t make it through the night, and I’ll makes sure of that. Tonight you’re going to defend that WWE WHC tonight, against me. I’m not just going to become the 14 World Champion, I’m going to put an end to this crap. I’m going to put an end to you. I’m gonna shut them up. I’m going to shut up the world! You can shake your head and smile, but the reality is this is my show and there’s not a damn thing you can to about it!
Trip throws down his mic and stomps up the ramp while Steph is heading down the stairs and well behind him. “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” from the fans, led by Bryan. Bryan poses in the ring as Steph glares over her shoulder on stage as she and Trip head out. More “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” from the fans.
Cole and King talk about what will happen to Bryan. JBL says Bryan will be ended tonight. Cole then talks about The Streak, and how Brock ended it. Brock is here tonight.
Stills from WrestleMania XXX.
Steph – I can’t wait for you to shut him down, to shut all these people up.
Trip – I’m going to make them all choke on it.
Steph – They absolutely will, and you’re going to end #YesMovement, tonight.
Batista – I don’t get any of this tonight. This wouldn’t have happened if you hadn’t lost to Bryan.
Trip – Wait a second. Talking about losing? Who tapped out last night?
Batista – You asked me to come back, and I did. I earned a one on one shot, not Triple Threat Match.
Orton – If anyone is more deserving, it’s me. I have a rematch clause and I want it tonight.
Trip – You want a rematch and you want a rematch? How about I’m the COO of this company and I’m going to run it as I see fit? That means you both get rematches, just not tonight. Tonight I take care of this problem.
Orton – Take care of this problem, so that means…
Steph – You are both right, all right. You’re deserving of Champion matches, but tonight you’re in tag team action against the Usos for the TTCs.
Orton – You make that sound like a good thing. If we wanted the TTCs, we’d take them. I want the WWE WHC, it needs to come back where it belongs.
Trip – Understand this, we all have our problems. You have your problems, I have my problems. This is all happening for one reason only. Historically, when we’re on the same page, no one can stop us.
New Orleans, we’re here. They head to the ring. Still from his match last night.

Heyman – My name is Paul Heyman, and it is the greatest privilege of my career to serve as the advocate for The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar. The conqueror of Taker’s streak! A streak that lasted nearly a quarter of a century that ended in 3 seconds at the hands of Brock Lesnar. I know you’re in shock, which shows your lack of intelligence, because…
Heyman – I hate to say we told you so, but ladies and gentlemen, we told you so! My client stands before you with a shirt that says – eat, sleep, break the streak! You have the temerity to doubt the strategy of the greatest manager in sports entertainment history, Paul Heyman. Or the physical credentials of the most dominant athlete in WWE history, ever, Brock Lesnar! Let’s get one things straight. Brock isn’t here to put smiles on people’s faces, he’s here to shock the WWE ‘Universe’ and put tears in the eyes of children. (this gets some pop) Now that you know all the headlines, lets go a little bit off page and shoot from the hip. 5 seconds after walking through the curtain at WrestleMania, Taker collapsed. You don’t want to hear this story, it’s a little too real for you. All the paramedics are panicking backstage. The most ruthless man who’s ever had the pleasure of meeting me, McMahon left WrestleMania and road to the hospital with Taker. Taker is being treated today for a severe concussion. He came this close to having a broken neck, this close to a cracked skull. And the greatest thing Taker ever did was not getting his shoulder up on that 3rd F5, because if he did, he would have had a broken neck. Brock would have cracked his skull. Brock Lesnar was prepared to beat on Taker to such a degree that the complexion of this television show would have changed tonight, because Brock wasn’t done until the streak was dead. (mixed) Here’s what really gets to me, when the match was over, John Brashaw Layfield, and those two other things that call themselves announcers, stood up and gave a standing ovation along with 80,000 other people in the Superdome. Superdome Hogan, not Silverdome! And gave a standing ovation to Taker. To the guy who lost the fight. Here’s what I don’t understand. Brock always taught me in every fight there’s a winner and there’s a loser, last night Taker was a loser! The winner, whether you like it or not, was Brock Lesnar! But since this is supposed to be the wildest crowd of the year, you should feel empowered, because each and every single one of you is exactly like every single member of that WWE locker room. You’re all a bunch of wannabes! (heat) When Brock Lesnar walked through that curtain last night, he didn’t get a standing ovation, everybody looked down. You know why? Because nobody respected Brock Lesnar, which is fine for Brock because Brock respects nobody. He barely tolerates me, and he surely isn’t going to respect somebody who flies in from around the world to sit here on the Monday after WrestleMania, trying to get noticed on worldwide TV! (heat) So notice this, okay? There’s a lot of people in the back who say, I could have been the one who jumped from the ring to the octagon, but Daniel Bryan never fought in an octagon. John Cena never fought in an octagon. Taker never fought in an octagon! You know why? They’re all wannabes, Brock Lesnar is the one! There’s a lot of people who want to be the NCAA Division 1 Heavyweight Champion, the Ultimate Fighting Champion, the WWE Heavyweight Champion. The Rock never pulled that off. Hulk Hogan never pulled that off. SCSA never pulled that off. Know why? They’re all wannabes. Brock Lesnar is the one! Then you got a bunch of guys in the locker room coming up to me saying, ‘Hey Paul, I could have been the one to break the streak. I could have beaten Taker.’ Randy Orton didn’t break the streak. Shawn Michaels didn’t break the streak. Triple H didn’t break the streak. They’re all wannabes. Brock Lesnar is the one. Brock Lesnar is the one in 21-1. (mixed) I’m sorry, are you saying What to me? (“What?”) Oh, I forgot who you are, so I’ll say it slowly for you. Brock Lesnar is the one in 21-1! ladies and gentlemen, there are WWE HOFers, legends and WWE Superstars and the key to that is they’re all plural, lumped together, and one who stands head and shoulders above the rest, on a platform of his own. There’s only one Beast Incarnate, only one conqueror of the streak, and there’s only one Brock Lesnar.

Warrior – Well then, you shut up Warrior, and let me do the talking! No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every mans heart one day beat their final beat, their lungs breathe their final breath, and if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others, it makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit will be immortalize by the storytellers, by the memory of those who honor him and make the the running the man did live forever. You, you, you, you are the legend makers of The Ultimate Warrior! (pop) In the back I see many potential legends, many with Warrior spirits, and you will do the same for them. You will decide if they lived with passion and intensity, so much so that you will tell their stories and make them legends as well. I am The Ultimate Warrior, you are The Ultimate Warrior fans, and the spirit or The Ultimate Warrior will run forever!
He removes the mask as the fans chant and cheer for him. More rope shaking and he leaves the ring. Hand slapping and waving from Warrior.

I gave them a chance, 294 days to prove me wrong, and they couldn’t. Last night they proved I’m the hero of this story. Last night at WrestleMania it was AJ Lee against the world. But it’s always been that way, the odd were 13-1, and I overcame the odd, like I’ve been overcoming the odds my entire life.

But as much as I appreciate it, I don’t need your congratulations, so why don’t you go running back to NXT, (stepping up on Paige) because the Champion doesn’t like being interrupted. (heat)
Paige – I’m sorry, I just wanted to say congratulations AJ.
AJ – Well, aren’t you just the sweetest little crumpet? (AJ pokes the TIP of Paige’s nose!) But you know what, while you’re here in my ring, and you’re all fancy and dressed, why don’t I do to you what I did to every single Diva last night. Why don’t I beat you?

I will tell you, 10 months ago I brought you into the fold, though you aren’t from here, as a real American, I also made you a Zeb Colter guy! You want to hear some more things?
Cesaro – I’m sorry Zeb, I’m not that guy. I’m not a Zeb Colter guy. I’m a Paul Heyman guy!

Recap of Bryan starting RAW.
Steph with Kane and The Shield.
Steph – I don’t care what happened between you at WrestleMania, or what happened to your brother at WrestleMania, what matters is Trip becoming 14 time WWE WHC tonight. All of you are going to make sure it happens.
Rollins – That’s all great, but I feel like. I feel like, Kane, you’re missing some buddies over there. Where are New Age Outlaws.
Ambrose – Okay man, we already know. As long as we’re around, I don’t think we’ll see them again.
Reigns – And I’ll see to that personally.
Kane – You three don’t know that you’re on thin ice, do you. (Steph says his name quietly, but he keeps going.) Because Trip sees you for what you are! Nameless, faceless, expendable pawns. (Again Steph says his name, but to no avail.) You think you can go around and beat up Trip’s friends? (More Steph, getting louder.) He thought you learned your lesson, when I had you decimated on Smackdown, he was the one who told me to do so!
Steph – KANE! Listen, there’s an injustice here, and no one understands that better than you three, it’s what you stand for. #YesMovement, Bryan, it’s disrespectful in and of itself that Bryan is the WWE WHC. You all know that, you want it, you know what it means to be Champ. You are all going to be on the same page, because what Trip, the boss, what he wants, he gets. Do I make myself clear?
Kane – I’m sorry.
Steph – Do I make myself clear?
Reigns – Crystal.
