Raw 1000th Episode Results 07/23/12

Raw Results from St. Louis, MO:

Raw opened with a D-Generation X reunion.  First it was just HHH and Shawn Michaels, but then they were joined by Road Dogg Jesse James, Bad Ass Billy Gunn, and X-Pac.  They did some of their in-ring antics and pre-match speech, but were interrupted by Damien Sandow.  Sandow criticized them for what Raw has become and alluded to them and the audience being degenerates.  He said if they attack him, he will become a martyr for the sophisticated minds of the world.  DX tlked over whether to attack, and then did, finishing with  Triple H pedigree.  Billy Gunn gave the famous line, "and if you're not down with that, we got two words for ya..."

Jim Ross was introduced and joined the announce team for the next match, a six man tag match.

Rey Mysterio, Sin Cara, and Sheamus defeated Dolph Ziggler, Chris Jericho and Alberto Del Rio by pinfall.  The action broke down late, as Mysterio did a running jump off the apron onto Del Rio on the floor.  Sin Cara did a pendulum kick on Ziggler to send him off the apron, but Jericho dumped Cara out over the ropes.  Sheamus came up and tried for White Noise, but Jericho countered and went for Walls of Jericho.  Sheamus countered, then also caught Jericho on the Codebreaker.  Moments later, Sheamus was hung up in the ropes.  Jericho went for his running and jump off the ropes move, but Ziggler jumped on the apron and punched him down.  Sheamus knocked Ziggler back off the apron then hit the Brogue Kick.

Lawler and Cole introduced some Touts fans did about the wedding of Daniel Bryan and AJ.  They had Charlie Sheen come in live via Skype talking about how he thinks he'd fit in well on the show with a guy like Sheamus.  Cole fed to video of Daniel Bryan proposing to AJ on last Monday's Raw.

They showed AJ in a bathrobe brushing her hair backstage as she was talking about how amazing her wedding is going to be tonight.  She asked Layla if she agreed, and they showed her on camera.  Layla asked if she's sure she wants to do this.  AJ talked about people calling her unstable, then told Layla to just look outside at the unstable people all around.  Hacksaw came walking through yelling to someone, then R-Truth and Roddy Piper showed up spinning jump rope for Lil' Jimmy.  Then Mae Young showed up with a man in a big hand costume.  He said he was Mae Young's son, all grown up now.  He congratulated AJ and she thanked them.  AJ made a face and looked at Layla, who said "good luck tonight" and bolted out the door.

Brodus Clay defeated Jack Swagger by pinfall.  Late in the match he sidestepped a move from Swagger then hit a suplex on him before getting the big splash.  Prior to the match, he had introduced special guest "Dude Love" aka Mick Foley.  Dude Love pulled out Socko on Swagger after the match to put him back down.  Dude Love, Clay, Cameron and Naomi danced post-match.

They had Trish Stratus backstage showing Triple H some Yoga moves.  Trish had HHH bent over when the other DX guys walk in.  They all leave together, but X-Pac stays to try to flirt with Trish.  Trish brushes him off.

Jerry Lawler introduced the reverend Slick to preside over the Daniel Bryan and AJ wedding.  Slick comes out, then the groom Daniel Bryan arrives.  Slick does a speech about marriage and then asks if anyone has reason they shouldn't get married.  Nobody comes out to interrupt.  Bryan says "YES" when asked if he takes AJ to be his wife.  AJ doesn't reciprocate and says she said yes to another proposal she received from a man earlier.  Out comes Vince McMahon who introduces the new GM of Raw - AJ.  Bryan becomes furious over this.  AJ skips around him and leaves the ring, with Bryan tearing apart all the wedding items in the ring as Raw goes to break.

CM Punk came to the ring while Bryan was throwing a fit, and reminded him that AJ is now the General Manager so that can't be good for his future.  Bryan and Punk started to argue over who was "Best in the World" until they were interrupted, by The Rock.  Rock got in the ring and told Bryan he doesn't decide who the greatest is, the people do.  Rock also made a big announcement, that he will be facing whoever the WWE champion is at the Royal Rumble.  Punk told him it'll be him.  Daniel Bryan butted into their convo and said he will be the face of the WWE, but Rock said he looks like a homeless lumberjack banged an Oompa Loompa.  It ended with Rock wishing Punk good luck against Cena tonight before hitting Rock Bottom on Bryan.

Hall of Famer Bret Hart came out to introduce the participants in tonight's Intercontinental Championship match, first the champ Christian, and then, The Miz.

The Miz defeated Christian for the Intercontinental Championship by pinfall.  During the match, Christian hurt his knee.  That came into play later as he flipped over Miz's back but landed badly.  That gave Miz the opportunity to hit Skullcrushing Finale for the big win, his first ever IC title reign.

Cole and Lawler talked to Charlie Sheen on Skype again.  This time he talked about being excited for Rock to face the WWE champ at Royal Rumble.  He added that the weasel, Daniel Bryan, has some real "Anger Management" issues and pointed to his cap, promoting his new show.

Regis Philbin had a segment talking about how he's been hooked forever on Raw, and ran down some of the guests that were on his show with Kathie Lee: Freddy Blassy, The Rock, and John Cena.

Triple H came down to the ring in his DX shirt and camo pants.  They cut to footage from months ago when Brock Lesnar broke the WWE COO's arm in the ring.  Triple H said he had his fun earlier and now it's time to pick up the intensity.  He called out Brock Lesnar to give him an answer about a match at SummerSlam right now.  After several moments, Brock's music hit and Triple H waited.  Paul Heyman came out instead and walked down to the ring.  Cole said Lesnar is there tonight, and Lawler asked why he isn't out then.

Heyman and Triple H got into a war of words, which had HHH calling Lesnar a little bully and a coward.  Heyman brought up Triple H's kids and his wife, which enraged Triple H.  Stephanie McMahon arrived out to a big pop and got into Heyman's face, eventually slapping him hard.  Heyman left to the apron and got a mic after recomposing himself.  He screamed "you want it, you want to see your husband get hurt, you got it!!"  Triple H got riled up and in Heyman's face, flexing and yelling.

After a moment, Heyman applauded Stephanie mockingly.  He started talking about how she learned from her daddy to always get what she wants.  Heyman brought up the kids again, and this time Stephanie pounced on  him.  Brock Lesnar's music hit and out came Brock this time.  Triple H helped Stephanie out of the ring.  Lesnar rushed at him, ramming HHH into the corner multiple times.  However as they went to the other corner, Triple H kicked Lesnar in the gut and got control.  Eventually, HHH tossed Lesnar out of the ring.  Lesnar got on the ramp with Heyman and stared at HHH.  Lesnar smirked then they walked backstage.

They had a vote earlier on what classic matchup fans would most want to see presented on WWE 13.  The winning choice was Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. John Cena.  They showed some of the highlights of the video game match played out, with both wrestlers hitting their trademark moves, but it appeared Cena got the win after the AA.

They cut to a video package of the Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Vince McMahon feud that really helped define Raw over the years.  They had other wrestlers and celebs talking about it including John Cena, Stephanie McMahon, and Maria Menounous.  Various footage was shown from Stone Cold terrorizing Vince McMahon over the years.

Santino Marella and Hornswoggle came out with WWE pillow buddies to hand out to kids in the crowd.  Howard Finkley was announced as special guest announcer for the next match.  He introduced the "One Man Band" Heath Slater.  Slater talked about how he's now ready to defeat whatever legend they have backstage.  Out came Lita to his surprise, making Slater laugh about it.

Lita defeated Heath Slater by pinfall.  Lita came to the ring and Slater laughed about it saying "hunny I accept your challenge."  Lita got on the mic and said she hired a little protection for herself tonight.  The APA's music hit and out came Bradshaw and JBL of APA.  Slater took off out of the ring and headed up the ramp.  However, as he got up the ramp, Road Warrior Animal's theme music hit.  Out from backstage came all of the legends Slater has faced over the past weeks: Bob Backlund, Doink the Clown, Vader, Psycho Sid, Roddy Piper, Rikishi and Animal.  They formed a line up on stage and then rushed after Slater, tossing him into the ring for Lita.  She hit a DDT on Slater, then did her patented Moonsault finisher on him off the top rope.  Post match all the legends celebrated in the ring, with Ron Simmons looking at Slater for a bit and around, then finally saying "Damn!"

Daniel Bryan was interviewed backstage and started going off about Charlie Sheen calling him an Oompa Loompa.  Bryan said if Charlie Sheen were standing right where he's standing right now, he'd slap the yes out of him faster than he could say "winning."

Lawler announced that WWE's 100 millionth social media follower Alex Guerrero, Jr. was in attendance tonight.  Cole interviewed him ringside, with Alex saying he's having a better night than Daniel Bryan and he's looking forward to 1000 more episodes of Raw.  Cole said he can go home now because he got his lifelong dream fulfilled of being interviewed by Cole.

Lawler fed to a video package of the "famous lines" that were created on Raw over the years.  That included Mick Foley, Jericho, DX, Vickie, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Booker T, Daniel Bryan, Funaki, Zack Ryder, Ric Flair, Vince McMahon and The Rock.

Zack Ryder was backstage with Mean Gene and John Cena.  He said Mean Gene is the one behind GTV, Gene TV.  Okerlund and Cena looked puzzled by it all.  The Rock showed up and Ryder/Okerlund walked off.  Rock told Cena the same thing he told Punk, and Cena said he'll be cashing in tonight to win the WWE title so he can have another shot at "the Great One."  Rock told Cena he's looking forward to that, good luck out there.

Kane made his way to the ring for a match.  Before he could do his fire from the ringposts, Jinder Mahal's music hit and Mahal came out with a mic in hand.  He was joined by Hunico, Camacho, Drew McIntyre, Curt Hawkins, and Tyler Reks.  They surrounded Kane on the ring apron sides.  However, all of a sudden the lights went out and The Undertaker's bells sounded.  Taker made his way to the ring as the fans went into a frenzy.  Taker got in the ring and stared over at Kane before removing his hood and cloak.  The six guys on the outside tried to stage an attack but all got knocked away.  Taker and Kane hit double chokeslams and then double Tombstones before posing for the crowd.  The fans chanted "This is Awesome!"

Cole fed to video about an anti-bullying campaign program held earlier in the day for kids in St. Louis featuring Sheamus, Eve and Stephanie McMahon.

Charlie Sheen promised to shake Daniel Bryan hard, and next time Daniel's in LA he's willing to meet him, whether it's in a ring, his house, or wherever.  Lawler asked Sheen if he's challenging Bryan to a match, and Sheen said he'll let "goat face" figure it out for himself.

Cole said they'll be in Los Angeles on August 19th for SummerSlam, so maybe Sheen will be there.

They cut to highlights from the end segment from Raw last week featuring John Cena saying he'd cash in against Punk on Raw 1000 for the WWE championship.  John Cena made his way to the ring with the briefcase to cash in for the title match.  Out came CM Punk next.  Cole revealed the results of their earlier poll about who the fans voted they want to see The Rock face at the Royal Rumble.  Punk won with 55% of the votes with Cena getting 35%.  Raw went to commercial ahead of the main event match.

John Cena defeated CM Punk due to disqualification when Big Show interfered.  CM Punk is still WWE champion.  Late during the match, Big Show came to the ring.  With the referee knocked out already, he hit Cena with the WMD KO punch to knock him out.  Punk looked around, confused about what to do.  He finally went out and got the ref to come to and brought him into the ring.  Punk thought about it a bit but then rushed to cover Cena.  He got two, but Cena got his arm up just in time.  The match continued with Cena managing to get Punk into the STF.  However, Show got back in the ring and hammered Cena from behind, causing the DQ.  That makes Cena one of the first to cash in his MITB briefcase and not win the WWE title.

Post-match, Big Show attacked Cena more.  CM Punk got out of the ring.  Suddenly, The Rock's theme music hit and he rushed to the ring for the save.  Rock hit several big moves on Show including a Spine Buster.  However, the big shock came as CM Punk attacked Rock in the ring, leaving Rock layed out on the mat.  Punk put the WWE title belt on his shoulder and slowly walked up the ramp.  Cole and Lawler acted shocked as Raw was ending.
