WWE Raw Results, Spoilers for July 21, 2014: Brock Lesnar to Face John Cena in"SummerSlam" Main Event
With "Plan A" and "Plan B" thwarted at Battleground, Triple H decided to take matters into his own hands, kicking off the show by telling the WWE Universe he would decide WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena's SummerSlam opponent by the end of the night. Randy Orton and Kane seemed displeased with the decision, arguing with each other that neither was named to the main event slot SummerSlam before Roman Reigns interrupted their disagreement. Triple H scheduled Reigns for a 2-on-1 Handicap match against Kane and Orton for his insolence against The Authority.
2-on-1 Handicap Tag Team match: Roman Reigns vs Randy Orton & Kane
Orton turned on Kane late in the match, refusing to take the tag from "The Devil's Favorite Demon," buying Reigns enough time to Superman Punch Kane as he attempted to choke "The Viper" for his lack of help and finish the job with a Spear.
Winner: Roman Reigns
4-on-1 Handicap match: Nikki Bella vs Alicia Fox, Eva Marie, Cameron & Rosa Mendes
Seething that Nikki's sister disrespected her, Stephanie McMahon scheduled Nikki for a 4-on-1 Handicap match. Bella had the support of her recently fired sibling, Brie, who had front-row tickets to attend the show, sending McMahon into a fit of rage. McMahon slapped Brie Bella and had her ejected from the building before the Divas mauled Nikki, with Fox hitting a Scissor Kick and pinning the EI "Total Diva."
Winner: Alicia Fox, Eva Marie, Cameron & Rosa Mendes
Damien Sandow vs Bo Dallas
Dallas continued to make "Bo-Lievers" of his opponents, this time escaping Sandow's Elbow of Disdain and hitting him with the Bo-Dog to extend his undefeated streak to 16-and-Bo.
Winner: Bo Dallas
Chris Jericho was scheduled to host his Highlight Reel segment but was attacked in the locker room by The Wyatts, with Y2J laid out after Bray Wyatt hit Sister Abigail slamming Jericho's head against the wall.
Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs Dolph Ziggler (non-title)
Ziggler wanted some measure of revenge after he was tossed over the top rope, allowing The Miz to take the Intercontinental Championship that was up grabs Sunday night in the Battleground Battle Royal. Ziggler managed to escape The Miz's Skull-Crushing Finale and nailed the Zig-Zag to win the match. After the match, The Miz demanded the announcer remind the world he still retained the title despite losing the bout.
Winner: Dolph Ziggler
WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee & Paige vs Emma & Natalya
Paige managed to reach out and tag her "frienemy," AJ -- whom the young diva faced off against for the WWE Divas Championship at Battleground -- as Natalya had Paige trapped in a Sharpshooter submission hold. AJ hit Natalya with a Shining Wizard after the "hot-tag" and quickly clamped her Black Widow finisher, forcing Natalya to tap out. After the match, Paige finally turned on AJ after weeks of trying to be a good sport about losing the Divas title to her.
Winner: AJ Lee & Paige
Fandango vs Zack Ryder
Ryder was accompanied by Layla and Summer Rae, who have put their rivalry aside and focused their attention on embarrassing their mutual ex-dance partner. Fandango had his foot on the bottom rope when Ryder caught him with the Rough Ryder late in the match, but Layla interfered while the ref was making the three-count, helping Ryder earn a rare victory. After the bout, both ladies rewarded Ryder with kisses as Fandango looked on.
Winner: Zack Ryder
Stephanie McMahon was arrested after Flo Rida's performance after Brie Bella reported her to authorities for aggravated battery.
Kofi Kingston & Big E vs Curtis Axel & Ryback
Ryback managed to reverse Kingston's Crossbody Splash, rolling him into a pin and the win. After the match, Xavier Woods challenged Kingston and Big E to unite as one and take what is theirs after pandering to the fans for so long throughout their careers.
Winner: Curtis Axel & Ryback
Rusev vs The Great Khali
The Great Khali could not stop Rusev, despite being slowed down by a sore ankle after his Battleground match against Jack Swagger. Rusev barreled through the pain, hitting The Great Khali with a kick after getting the big man off his feet and forcing a tap-out with The Accolade.
Cesaro vs Dean Ambrose
After informing Triple H that he had dumped Paul Heyman as his advisor, Cesaro wanted to show Triple H that he was a better "Plan B" option than Seth Rollins. Triple H offered Cesaro an opportunity to prove himself, sending him to dispose of the problem named Dean Ambrose, who is doing everything in his power to make sure Rollins does not cash in his Money In The Bank suitcase. While Ambrose and Cesaro put on a physical and bruising display, Ambrose showed Cesaro why he is called "The Lunatic Fringe" and slammed a steel chair on Cesaro's arm as it was wrapped against the ring post, forcing the official to call the bout.
Winner: Cesaro via disqualification
Triple H then came out to the ring (despite his wife being locked up for attacking Brie Bella) to announce who will be facing WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena at SummerSlam when Randy Orton's music hits the arena as he headed down to the ring. Before "The Apex Predator" could even make it to the ring apron, Roman Reigns appeared from nowhere and went after Orton, who retreated into the stands as Reigns hunted him. Paul Heyman came out and once again presented Triple H with a "Plan C" -- as in "conqueror" -- offering the services of his client Brock Lesnar, who is coming off breaking The Undertakers Wrestlemania streak. The WWE COO shook hands with Lesnar and Heyman, setting up Cena versus Lesnar at SummerSlam to end the show.
