WWE Raw Results, Spoilers for August 4, 2014: The Authority Takes Out The Bella Twins With 'SummerSlam' Right Around the Corner
The Authority kick off WWE Raw in Austin,Texas with Triple H announcing that Seth Rollins will be in a Beat The Clock Challenge to help determine their stipulation for his "SummerSlam" bout against Dean Ambrose. Joining them, Randy Orton bragged about putting a beating on Roman Reigns last week on "Raw" before Reigns interrupted "The Viper's" moment in the spotlight. Reigns challenged Orton to a fight but Triple H interceded announcing that Kane would face Reigns in a Last Man Standing match.
Last Man Standing match: Kane vs Roman Reigns
Kane seemed to have the match in hand after reversing Reign's Superman Punch into a Choke-Slam, sending Reigns through a table. But Reigns battled back, eventually nailing "the Devil's Favorite Demon" with a Superman Punch and Spear. Kane failed to answer the 10-count and ended up losing the bout.
Winner: Roman Reigns
Mark Henry vs Damien Sandow
Henry, who hails from Silsby, Texas, made quick work of Sandow - who came out to the ring in University of Oklahoma Sooners gear - much to the delight of the Austin crowd, hitting Sandow with a Clothesline and The World's Greatest Slam for the quick and easy 1-2-3 count.
Winner: Mark Henry
Beat The Clock Challenge match: Dean Ambrose vs Alberto Del Rio
Del Rio worked over Ambrose's injured shoulder and attempted his Cross Armbreaker at several key points of the match, trying to put his opponent away. But Ambrose refused to succumb to the pain, reversing a Cross Armbreaker attempt by ADR into his Dirty Deeds finisher to beat the former champion at the 15:42 mark. If Seth Rollins defeats his scheduled opponent in less time, he gets to decide the stipulation for their "SummerSlam" match.
Winner: Dean Ambrose
Rusev vs Sin Cara
Rusev mauled Sin Cara, making him tap out to The Accolade for the quick squash win. After the match, Lana continued her verbal barrage against the U.S., derisively wishing President Barack Obama a happy birthday before Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger interrupted her diatribe. Rusev ended up attacking Swagger, beating him down with the Russian flag, before turning his attention towards Colter. Lana backed off her European behemoth, sparing Colter a world-class beatdown.
Winner: Rusev via tap-out
Cesaro vs Dolph Ziggler
Ziggler capitalized on Cesaro's mistake after "The King of Swing" went for a one-handed Stalling Suplex to mock "The Showoff," who ended up reversing the move and nailing Cesaro with a Zig Zag for the victory. After the bout, Ziggler scared off Intercontinental Champion The Miz -- who was doing commentary -- by faking a Super-Kick towards the champion's "Money Maker," forcing The Miz to retreat.
Winner: Dolph Ziggler
Stardust & Goldust vs Ryback & Curtis Axel
The Rhodes Brothers, looking to regain their championship form, showed an array of new moves, which included Stardust showing Axel his newest finisher, Dark Matter, planting him face-first into the mat and getting the three-count.
Winner: Goldust & Stardust
Kane is shown backstage, handing his mask to Stephanie McMahon and Triple H as they prepare for McMahon's contract signing for her "SummerSlam" match, and walks away in disappointment after his losing his bout to Roman Reigns.
Chris Jericho vs Luke Harper of the Wyatt Family
With a win over Harper, Jericho got an opportunity to banish the Wyatt family member from ringside at "SummerSlam" much like he did after his win over Erick Rowan on "Friday Night Smackdown." Jericho had Harper in The Walls of Jericho before the lights went out and Rowan attempted to interfere in the match. Y2J hit both Rowan and Harper with Codebreakers but Bray Wyatt climbed into the ring, getting Harper disqualified and banned from "SummerSlam" before hitting Jericho with his Sister Abigail finisher to send Jericho a message.
Winner: Chris Jericho via disqualification
Fandango vs Diego of Los Matadores
Fandango brought back-up this time, bringing Hornswoggle with him in an attempt to fend off Summer Rae, Layla, and El Torito, who accompanied Diego to ringside. Hornswoggle ended up getting in Fandango's way, costing him the match while giving Diego the chance to finish Fandango off with a Backstabber. After the match, Hornswoggle and El Torito put their differences aside despite their epic rivalry earlier this year, danced with Layla and Summer Rae as they celebrated Diego's victory over Fandango.
R-Truth vs Bo Dallas
After breaking Dallas' undefeated streak, R-Truth attempted to get another win over "The Inspirational One," but missed with an Axe Kick late in the match. He was rolled up by Dallas, who grabbed a handful of pants to earn the suspect victory. After the bout, R-Truth tried to gain some vengeance, but ended up getting thrown into the steel steps and eating a Bo-Dog outside the ring for being a "non-Bo-Liever."
Winner: Bo Dallas
Beat The Clock Challenge match: Seth Rollins vs Rob Van Dam
While former champion RVD was originally slated to face off against Rollins, the match was changed last-minute for Rollins to go up against Heath Slater. Looking to beat Dean Ambrose's Beat The Clock Challenge time of 15:42, Rollins controlled most of the match until Ambrose made his presence felt. "The Lunatic Fringe" distracted Rollins, including ripping up Rollins' MITB contract in front of him before "The One Man Band" took advantage, pinning Rollins with a roll-up to score the upset. Ambrose now gets to decide the stipulation for his "SummerSlam" match against Rollins after Slater's victory on "Raw."
Winner: Heath Slater
Stephanie McMahon, accompanied by her husband and WWE COO Triple H, and Brie Bella - who brought her sister Nikki with along with her, discussed their match at "SummerSlam" as they got set to sign their contract for their match. Triple H recused himself as a WWE official, saying it was a conflict of interest, wanting to support his wife and mother of his children as a husband and not as a corporate executive. Both ladies signed their contracts before Triple H backed the desk into the corner, with Brie sitting in the chair, pinning her in the corner as McMahon attacked Nikki, knocking her out with a Pedrigree. Brie managed to escape, slapping Triple H before McMahon rescued her husband, slapping on the Pedrigree and leaving the Bella Twins laid out to end the show.
