This week’s Monday Night Raw aired live from the U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona. It was the 1057th weekly show.

The show opened with the WWE COO Triple H coming into the ring and presenting the elevated ratings for last week’s Monday Night Raw. He exclaimed, “The business is blooming” and gave all the credit to the WWE Champion, Randy Orton. He thanked Orton for breathing a new life to the company and gave him a brand new Cadillac Escalade as a gift.

But then Daniel Bryan interrupted, resulting in Triple H putting Bryan in gauntlet matches against each member of The Shield (Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and then Roman Regins if he makes it that far).

Match #1a
Fandango Vs Cody Rhodes
Result: Early in the match, The Miz, who was dressed like Fandango, came dancing on the ramp along with Rosa Mendes, thus distracting Fandango. Rhodes took the advantage and rolled up Fandango for a three-count.

Later, Damien Sandow entered the ring and attacked Rhodes. The Miz reappeared and came to rescue Rhodes, which resulted in Raw General Manager Brad Maddox coming out and announcing the bout to be continued officially as a tag team match.
