Raw Results 02/13/12

Raw Results from San Diego, CA:

After a video package about the Kane, John Cena, Eve and Zack Ryder saga, Kane was shown backstage.  He said tonight two things will happen: Cena will embrace the hate, and someone will take a ride in an ambulance.

They had an in-ring debate with all of the competitors for the Elimination Chamber, hosted by Jerry Lawler.  John Laurinaitis came out with David Otunga to interrupt, talking about how happy he was to be out there tonight due to the Board of Directors.  Punk glared out at him with arms folded.

Each guy then spoke about why he'd win the Elimination Chamber match.  Truth talked about crazy stuff including trading Ziggler/Vickie to Smackdown for Hornswoggle and a box of spiders.  He acted like it was a presidential debate.  It involved a lot of trash talking, with Jericho telling everyone he is better than everyone else, and his accomplishments outweigh those of the other 5 guys in the ring.

Lawler said there would be a series of singles matches tonight involving all the competitors, starting with Kofi Kingston vs. Jericho.  Jericho bumped past Kingston, then walked over to taunt Punk.  Punk held up the championship belt.  As Jericho turned around he got kicked down by Kofi.

Chris Jericho defeated Kofi Kingston by pinfall.  At one point, Jericho and Kofi were arguing with the ref.  Jericho got a thumb to Kofi's eye, then hit Codebreaker for the win.

Shawn Michaels was shown walking backstage and found Triple H, then gave him a hug.  Cole suggested maybe there will be a DX reunion tonight.

Backstage, John Cena was with Zack Ryder in a wheelchair and neckbrace.  Ryder said he had flowers to give Eve for Valentine's Day.  Cena warned Ryder to stay right there and he'll bring Eve to him, because Kane's on the loose, looking to hurt Ryder.

Backstage, David Otunga was discussing matters with John Laurinaitis.  He said it's great the board allowed him to stay as interim GM, but they didn't make him "permanent."  Otunga said he knows a way that Laurinaitis can be permanent GM of Raw, and Smackdown.  JL contemplated that idea as the camera cut back to Cole and Lawler.

Big Show defeated Randy Orton due to DQ.  Daniel Bryan was watching the match ringside.  At one point, Orton did his DDT but with Show from the top rope on the side.  Late in the match, Orton hit the RKO but Daniel Bryan rushed in and clocked Orton with the title belt.  Bryan then hit the Big Show with the belt as well.

Shawn Michaels came out to the ring to make his plea towards Triple H trying to end Taker's streak this year at Wrestlemania.  Triple H came out and talked about his responsibilities as a boss now and how ending Taker would be bad for the brand.  Michaels continued to try to incite Triple H to take the challenge, with HHH saying he won't be the one for HBK to live through vicariously since he couldn't get the job done.

Michaels tried to yank HHH towards him and told him to look in his eyes and tell him he doesn't want to end the streak.  HHH took his jacket off and looked at the WM28 logo before saying "No."  Hunter dropped the mic and Michaels looked him up and down.  Michaels walked past HHH and left the ring as H-B-K chants hit the arena.

Right after HBK looked back in the ring where HHH was by himself, the gong struck and lights went low.  A new Undertaker video came on the screen.  This time Taker stood up from his chair and was walking past pohtos and newspaper articles about WM27.  He said he will get what he wants.  Taker cut locks off his hair, then yelled for Triple H to give him what he wants "Immortality."  The segment ended with HHH looking out from the ring contemplating what he just saw.  He left the ring as Raw went to break.

R-Truth defeated Dolph Ziggler by pinfall in a very quick match.  Ziggler kept showing off, so Truth scored a quick rollup pinfall to win it.

Tamina defeated Brie Bella by pinfall after hitting the Superfly Splash.  Post-match, Beth Phoenix who was on commentary at ringside, and Tamina locked eyes with each other.  They'll be competing in a title match on Sunday at the PPV.

Backstage, John Cena had an interview with Josh Matthews.  However, they were interrupted when they heard screams from nearby.  Eve was shown getting into the back of an ambulance with Kane closing the doors shut.  John Cena rushed in and smashed Kane into the ambulance.  Cena yelled for Eve to open the door to get out.  Kane continued to fight back and beat up Cena.

He got into the driver's side to get away, but Eve jumped out of the back and into Cena's arms.  Kane drove away in the ambulance.  Eve planted a kiss on Cena, and Cena was puzzled asking what that was for.  Eve didn't have an answer.  Zack Ryder was shown off-camera in his wheelchair.

Later, backstage Eve caught up with Ryder as he was wheeling away in his wheelchair.  She told him it was just a heat of the moment thing because Cena had saved her just in time.  Eve said she just wants to be friends with Ryder.  Ryder wheeled off and Eve tried to get herself back together.

CM Punk defeated The Miz by submission.  Late in the match, Punk hit the Macho Man elbow drop on Miz.  He went for the GTS, but Miz escaped and went for Skullcrushing Finale.  Punk countered the move into the Anaconda Vice.  Miz tapped on Punk's shoulder to give him the win.  Post-match, Chris Jericho was shown backstage watching the match on a flatscreen.

They showed the ambulance backing up backstage into the parking garage.

The final segment of the night had John Cena arrive out after Cole and Lawler plugged the ambulance match for Sunday's PPV.  Cena talked about this must be Kane's plan, to turn his friends and the WWE Universe against him.  He said that's how Kane is trying to get him to "embrace the hate" and it might have worked on anybody else, but he's not anybody else.

Cena absorbed several chants from parts of the crowd including "we all hate you" and "Fruity Pebbles."  Cena said he'll adapt and continue to win.  He brought up Sunday's match and vowed that Kane will leave in an ambulance.  Then Cena brought up Rock, with a message for him about Wrestlemania.  Just then, Zack Ryder came wheeling out onto the ramp.  He stood up and used the crutches he had with him and started to walk to the ring, looking upset.  Ryder struggled to get up the steel steps and into the ring, standing toe to toe with Cena.  Cena tried to urge him not to, and tried to apologize, but Ryder hit the mic away.  Cena walked up to him trying to reason with Ryder, but Ryder slapped him in the face.  Cena looked angry, took off his dog tags and kissed them, then tore off his shirt.

Ryder kept yelling at Cena, saying you were my friend John.  He tried to strike Cena, but Cena caught his arm and stopped him.  He tried to pull away but it caused Ryder to fall back towards the ropes.  Ryder told Cena to get the hell away from him, then left the ring and got his crutches to walk back up the ramp.  Cena looked dejected in the ring.  Just then, Kane appeared on the Titantron saying "Johnnn, oh Johnnn."  Kane told Cena he stole the true love of his best friend.  Kane said Cena has sunken to depths he could only think of.  Kane said Cena has embraced the hate, but Kane feeds off hate.  Kane said on Sunday, Cena'ss body and soul will be leaving the WWE in an ambulance.  Kane said before he leaves to have a round of applause for John Cena.

Cena tried to ask for a mic as Kane's picture went off the big screen.  As Ryder sat down in his wheelchair, suddenly Kane emerged from backstage and rushed up to take hold of Ryder's chair.  He wheeled it over fast to the side of the stage and shoved Ryder off towards the crowd.  Ryder fell to the floor on his face.  Cena rushed out of the ring and grabbed some nearby WWE personnel and ordered them to go up and help.  Cena ran up to look at Ryder as well.  Eve also arrived out and knelt down before Ryder crying about it.

A replay was shown several times of what Kane did to Ryder.  Eve and Cena looked on as Ryder was loaded onto a stretcher to be taken away and Raw went off the air.
