1495 Sports is proud to bring this live updated from a very special three-hour episode of Monday Night Raw, so if you are a WWE fan make sure to refresh this page for the most up-to-date information:
John Laurinaitis starts the show only to be interrupted by Mr. Vince McMahon: Vince this is all about business and gets right to the job evaluation. Members of the WWE Universe are booing Laurinaitis out of the building as the exec is completely stumbling on his promo.
Laurinaitis says that he and Mr. McMahon are astute business men, and the owner of the WWE points out all the bad business deals that the GM has made. Tension is building as Johnny Ace is trying to save his job.
Sheamus comes out and interrupts the duo to say his peace in the ring, Vince points out that #FireJohnny is now trending on Twitter. The World Heavyweight Champion says that Johnny is the worst GM in the history of the company and begs McMahon to fire the exec. Big Johnny had better impress tonight or he is fired, much to the delight of the fans in the crowd tonight.
Sheamus def. Tensai: Extremely physical bout between the two big men, as the company are really trying to build Tensai as a legitimate top guy in the championship scene. Brogue Kick by Sheamus to pick up a good win.
Cut to the back where Vince is putting the pressure on Johnny Ace, as Vickie Guerrero tries to put her two cents in for clients Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger. Teddy Long makes a recommendation for a Fatal Four way bout featuring Ziggler, Swagger, The Great Khali and Christian to become the number one contender on SmackDown, so stay tuned folks.
After the commercial break fans witness Tensai beating on his manager thanks to his most recent loss. Raw gives us a recap of the Superstars/Celebrities favorite moment from the Flagship Brand, as the 1,000 episode approaches.
Backstage interview with R-Truth, who is continuing his crazy good guy routine, during the session Big Show knocks the star out-as Truth was plugging the fact that John Cena can make it to another level during the No Way Out pay-per-view.
Beth Phoenix and Ricardo Rodriguez: def. Santino and Layla: The whole point of the bout was to insert Beth Phoenix back in the Championship race in the Women’s Division. An okay filler match, but not impressive enough to save Johnny Ace’s job.
David Otunga tried to kiss up to Vince McMahon to become the next GM of the dual shows, but the boss didn’t buy it. Kofi Kingston comes in wanting a match with the Big Show, and is booked for a Steel Cage bout for later on tonight.
Daniel Bryan comes out to cut a promo saying how he is nothing like C.M. Punk and Kane, in that he does not have a weakness named A.J. Bryan pulling out a heel promo, before C.M. Punk comes out and interacts with his rival. Kane comes out and puts in his two cents. A.J. comes out to try to make peace between the three men, and says that she knows that the best man will win.
Bryan/Kane take on Punk and A.J. later on tonight-stay tuned!
Great Khali vs. Christian vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Jack Swagger. Khali is eliminated as it is now Ziggler, Swagger and Christian battling it out for the No 1 contenders spot on SmackDown. Ziggler cashes in on a pin of Swagger as Christian’s used his finishing move on the All-American-American.
After a great bout Ziggler picks up a pin over Christian to become the Number One contender for the World Heavyweight Championship at the No Way Out pay-per-view. Great move by the WWE.
A nice lighthearted moment as Vince McMahon dances with the Funkasaurus Brodus Clay Dance Girls, before giving a Woo, Woo, Woo to Zack Ryder.
Ryback vs. two jobbers who no one cares about. It is getting to the point to where the star formerly known as Skip Sheffield is being compared to Goldberg, who knows what the company has planned-but here is hoping they do something interesting soon.
Kofi vs. Big Show in a Steel Cage next. Before that happens an encounter by John Cena and Vince McMahon, Cena tries to convince the Boss to fire the GM tonight-but let us stay tuned!
It was announced on Raw that there will be a No Way Out pre-show match announced between Otunga and Clay that will air on YouTube.
Now it is time for Kofi vs. The Big Show in a Steel Cage: Kofi gets one moment of brilliance before being dominated by the Big Show. The Giant finally escapes via the door to gain some major steam before the pay-per-view.
Sin Cara def. Curt Hawkins: Basically the point of this match is to build up Sin Cara back to where he was before he left the company.
Vader def. Heath Slater: Nice fluffy moment for the fans, but will these matches really impress Mr. McMahon. It probably has been the most positive night of Raw in a while.
In awesome moment, the Be a Star program is one of the best ideas the WWE has come up with. Props for that.
Punk/AJ def. Kane/Bryan: AJ kissed Kane to cause the Big Red Machine to leave the ring, it was enough for Punk to get a victory over Bryan before the No Way Out pay-per-view.
Time for the Bosses decision, but before anything can happen The Big Show comes out to try to change the bosses mind, before John Cena interrupts the proceedings. Big Show just knocked Vince McMahon out, he was trying to go for Cena who ducked the WMD and that is how Raw goes off the air.
Thanks to those folks for checking out this edition of the 1495 Sports live WWE updates and will look forward to seeing you soon.
