WWE Raw results, live blog (Dec. 15, 2014): TLC fallout show

Let's see how they follow up on "TLC," shall we?

WWE Monday Night Raw comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Dec. 15, 2014) from the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan featuring the fallout show from last night's TLC pay-per-view (PPV) in Cleveland. It's also the start of building to one of the biggest events of the year, the Royal Rumble.

Advertised for tonight: Roman Reigns is back, Brock Lesnar is returning, results and fallout from TLC, the kick off to the Royal Rumble, and more!

Come right back here at 8 p.m. ET when the Raw live blog kicks off once the show starts on USA. It will be below this line here. (REMINDER: NO GIFS OR PICS ARE ALLOWED IN THE COMMENTS SECTION. OFFENDERS WILL BE BANNED.)



BaconStrips here. Let's see what WWE has in store for us tonight, shall we?


Show is LIVE

Ba-ba-ba-bang...BANG! Our guest Raw GM, Chris Jericho, starts us off tonight.


After a cheap Detroit pop, Jericho reminds us that he's the GM tonight, and the show is about every Jerichoholic in the world. He thanks everyone for voting him to be the winner of the Extreme Moment of the Year after his jump from the cage.

He brings up how Fandango accepted Jericho's awards, and he isn't happy with it. He demands Fan(insert off-color name here) to come to the ring and return his Slammy.

"Ladies and name is Paul Heyman" (I would laugh my ass off if Fandango was a Paul Heyman guy)

Heyman mocks the whole idea of "Raw is Jericho", and says that Jericho should allow Heyman to manage Raw tonight.

Heyman admits a beef with Jericho due to the simple fact that he didn't deserve that Slammy. After some hilarious antics (including an ECW reference and a lovely rendition of "Ayatollah of Rock-and-Rollah), Jericho reminds Heyman that he is a walrus, the man who gave him his big break in ECW, and that he still owes Jericho $200.

Heyman tells us that he isn't here to advocate for Brock Lesnar, but he's here to address the whole situation with Seth Rollins. He starts to talk about how Rollins failed to defeat John Cena last night.

At this moment, Rollins comes down to the ring and confronts Heyman, who is nervous due to Rollins crowding him.

Rollins asks Heyman about the events of last night's table match. Rollins had Cena right where he wanted him, but Roman Reigns intervened. This makes Rollins claim that Cena cannot defeat him without help because "I am that good."

Rollins calls Cena a coward for needing help in his fights, and this causes a challenge to be laid down: a rematch between Rollins and Cena...but not tonight due to him being through hell at TLCS.

Rollins tries to explain his reasoning when Cena comes out to the ring and tells Rollins to shut up and play with the children. Cena reminds us of last night's events, and what's at stake at Royal Rumble.

However, Cena wants a fight tonight, and he references Rollins' idea of a rematch. However, he needs help because (gasp) he can't make a match. After a little Blues Clues moment, he figures out that Jericho is in the ring.

Jericho makes the match, and to add to the fun, the match will be contested in a STEEL CAGE!

Rollins is pissed, calling Jericho the worst GM of all time. Eventually, Rollins says that Jericho is jealous of him and his success. After an interesting tirade, Jericho retorts that he can beat Paul Heyman in a match (and the popcorn salesman is a ninja).

Another match is made: Chris Jericho vs Paul Heyman (wonder what will happen here...). Oh, and you can choose the stipulation on the WWE App.


Erick Rowan/Dolph Ziggler vs Luke Harper/Big Show

Half-decent tag match that ends in chaos when Harper and Ziggler start brawling outside, leaving Rowan and Show in the ring. Show hits Rowan with the KO Punch for the pinfall.

Luke Harper/Big Show def Erick Rowan/Dolph Ziggler


Backstage, Fandango and Rosa Mendes are all over each other when Jericho confronts him for his Slammy. After Jericho's finished with Heyman, he will be back for Fandango.

Recap of Dean Ambrose vs Bray Wyatt from last night.

Renee Young interviews The New Day. They talk about negativity and The Dust Bros. I have no clue.


The Bella Twins vs Alicia Fox/Natalya

Nothing match solely for the purpose of starting/advancing another Total Divas storyline.

Alicia Fox/Natalya def The Bella Twins


Roman Reigns returns to action tomorrow night on Super SmackDown Live.


It is time for The Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho. He introduces Rusev and Lana by highlighting what Lana will likely be wearing.

Lana takes the mic, and the USA chants instantly start. She reminds us that Rusev destroyed Jack Swagger last night, and she gives Jericho the honor to ask his dumb questions.

Before questioning, Jericho comments on Lana's suits and the "pineapple on her head." He asks Rusev about why he's so angry all the time, and how Rusev needs to show Lana his "Sputnik"...among other things.

A series of insults from Jericho follows, and him and Lana get into a "SHU-TUP" yelling contest (not kidding).

Rusev finally takes the mic and says that Jericho talks to much, and he should crush Jericho now.

Jericho responds that someone backstage wants to fight Rusev right now...Ryback.

Ryback comes down and stares down Rusev. Rusev and Lana cower away as Ryback glares at Rusev.

Definitely looks like Ryback is Rusev's next victim opponent.


Vignette for The Ascension's main roster call-up


The New Day vs The Dust Bros

Longer-than-it-should-have-been match that the crowd couldn't have cared less for. It was hard to get into this one from my end as well.

The New Day def The Dust Bros

Someone referenced someone saying that The New Day was getting Rocky Maivia hate...I'm definitely picking up on that from the crowds.


Renee Young interviews The Miz and Damien Mizdow. Renee asks how Miz feels about going up against Jimmy Uso. Miz responds with a story about Jimmy's feelings of inadequacy...or something like that.

Adam Rose and his Rosebuds are dancing around when Rose says that they're going to have the biggest afterparty of all time after his match. Kane interrupts and says that he doesn't like Rose or his Rosebuds. Kane faces Adam Rose next


Kane vs Adam Rose

Whatever. Kane killed Rose and The Bunny. Oh, Jimmy Jacobs and Scarlett Bordeaux were Rosebuds

Kane def Adam Rose

Kane tombstoned The Bunny, and all rejoiced.


Kane vs Erick Rowan is announced for Main Event


Chris Jericho vs Paul Heyman (Street Fight)

Heyman comes out and says that he doesn't have any tricks up his sleeve. He starts joking around, making a good jiujitsu pun. Also, the beating Heyman will receive will be worse than PG.

Heyman offers to give Jericho his $200 and call it even. He starts writing a check, but Jericho knocks it out of his hand.

The stipulation is announced as a street fight, and Heyman starts freaking out...buts says that Jericho is about to get into a fight with BROOOOOOOOOOOOOCK LESNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR

The Beast comes out, and all hell is about to break loose...Jericho gonna die.

Lesnar circles his prey before entering the ring to have a staredown. Jericho attacks Lesnar and attempts a Codebreaker, but Lesnar shakes it off and F5s Jericho.

A Cena chant rings through the arena, but the man doesn't show. Lesnar and Heyman leave, leaving Jericho lying dead in the ring.

As our good friend The Notorious Eddie Mac would say, "he dead"


Fandango lovingly mocks Jericho's entrance pose before he enters the ring with Jericho's Slammy

Fandango kisses the Slammy, and declares that "Raw is Jericho" is now "Raw was Jericho"

As he goes on, Roman Reigns comes through the crowd and enters the ring.

Fandango says something, but eats a Superman Punch and is broken in half by a massive Spear.

Reigns takes a mic and starts to say something, but Big Show comes out with a mic.

Reigns tells Show that he gonna get hit if he comes to the ring. Show responds by ripping him about spearing him at TLCS.

As Show tries to enter the ring, Show eats a Superman Punch. Show responds by tearing up some stairs before leaving.


The Miz vs Jimmy Uso

Nothing match that only serves to further put over Damien Mizdow and to extend a feud that is hard to care about.

Jimmy Uso def The Miz


Backstage, Naomi is walking when she runs into The Miz and Damien Mizdow. Miz reminds her that he is a man of his word, and he is trying to get her a music deal. She tries to say something, but Miz interrupts and says that he is having her as a guest on MizTV to announce her desire to be Divas Champion.

Renee Young interviews Seth Rollins. Rollins says that it's ridiculous that he has to be in a steel cage match 24 afters (err...hours) after being in a tables match the night before. Paranoid, he declares that no one is safe in WWE unless The Authority is brought back to control the insanity.


The Christmas edition of Raw is next Monday, and Hulk Hogan is playing Santa Claus this year.


John Cena vs Seth Rollins (Steel Cage)

An excellent cage match that features lots of great, back-and-forth action. Super AAs, briefcases, and J&J Security were used at some point of the match.

The end comes after Cena delivers the Super AA on Rollins. Brock Lesnar comes out and destroys Cena with some German Suplexes and the F5. Heyman and Rollins shake hands, signifying that Rollins could be the next Paul Heyman Guy.

Rollins delivers the curb stomp to Cena and just walks out of the cage.

Seth Rollins def John Cena
