Live Raw results for 7/30/2012

Whatsup guys and gals, its time for another Raw, and tonight, CM Punk has said that he will answer for what he did last week. What will he say? Will the Rock make a appearance? Stay right here to find out. Also, don't forget that Raw does start at 8 pm EDT, so be here in 30 mins for the start, and don't forget to join us over at www.snsradionetwork.com for a live chat during Raw with myself, and others of the SNS Family.

Update: Apparently Raw will be starting at its regular time, but was unsure due to a fire in the arena.

They start with a recap of last week, then out comes CM Punk to talk about last week, who then quotes King from last week, saying that Punk turned his back on the WWE Universe. Punk then goes and sits on the announcers table and starts talking to Jerry Lawler. Punk then starts talking about Rock, how the Rock is just a single person, he is not the WWE Universe. Rock showed Punk no respect, and Punk showed it right back. Where is Rock response? When Cena and the Rock were fighting you couldn't shut him up, but now the Rock is silent, and that means something. Out comes Big Show, who talks about how Punk is still champion because of Show. Cena vowed that Show wouldn't win the MITB, Show vowed Cena wouldn't win his title back. John Cena comes running out, and attacks Big Show as Punk looks on. Show runs out of the ring, and AJ comes out and announces that tonight Cena will face Big Show for a shot at the title at Summerslam.

1st match Singles match
Santino Marella vs Alberto Del Rio
Winner: Alberto Del Rio via submission after putting the rolling cross armbreaker on Santino.

Alberto Del Rio says that he will not compete unless the match is for the World Title. So ADR will not compete until Summerslam.

We come back from commercial to see Brodus Clay in the ring, before Vickie Guerrero interrupts him to start dancing herself, before Damien Sandow comes out and beats down Brodus Clay.

Backstage we see Daniel Bryan storm into AJ Lee's office, saying how she embarrassed he was last week. AJ mentions the men in white suits, and tells Daniel Bryan that he has a match tonight with Sheamus. Bryan asks if its for the title, and Sheamus starts chanting no.

3rd match Street Fight
Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus
Winner: Sheamus via pinfall after a brogue kick

We come back from commercial to see Daniel Bryan laying in the ring yelling for a doctor, before they cut back to a video feed from earlier in the day. Daniel Bryan is still laying in the ring, Kofi Kingston and R-Truth  come out, and Daniel Bryan begins talking to Little Jimmy. Bryan then kicks Little Jimmy out of the ring as R-Truth jumps out and starts consoling Little Jimmy. The men in white jumpsuits then come down and surround R-Truth, until AJ comes out and tells them its not R-Truth they need to take, its Daniel Bryan. AJ then informs Bryan that he will be undergoing a psychiatric evaluation for a safer work environment.

4th match Singles match
Kofi Kingston vs Titus O'Neil
Winner: Titus O'Neil via pinfall after a distraction from AW

In the ring is Heath Slater, who talks about doing a open challenge to any current WWE superstar.

7th match Singles match
Tyson Kidd vs Tensai
Winner: Tensai via pinfall
Winner: Tyson Kidd via reverse decision

After the match, Tensai continued the assault on Tyson, until the ref reverses the decision

Backstage we see Daniel Bryan in a room with a doctor, with the doctor saying that he is completely sane. The doc leaves, and Kane comes in saying that he is Daniels anger management therapist, and then runs Bryans head into the concrete wall.

Punk walks down to the ring to commentate on the next match.

8th match Singles match (Winner goes on to face Punk at SummerSlam)
John Cena vs Big Show
Winner: No Contest

During the match Big Show threw Cena into Punk who was sitting at ringside. The ending of the match comes when Cena gets Big Show up for a AA, but Punk attacks both men, and causes the no contest. Punk then grabs a mic and says that both men are losers. AJ comes out after Punk has walked to the back, and announces that at SummerSlam John Cena and the Big Show will face off against CM Punk in a triple threat match.

Well that was Raw, and thanks for joining us guys. See you next week.

News On WWE Bringing Legends Back

Following a report that WWE will be looking at bringing back Legends every week, PWInsider is reporting that internally, the belief is that the re-emergence of former talent such as Vader, Sycho Sid and Bob Backlund caused part of a lapsed wrestling audience to tune in to WWE programming again. Should WWE continue the angle, names most likely to resurface are Tatanka, Steve Blackman and Big Daddy V. Those three and several other alumnus were contacted to appear on Raw 1,000, but WWE officials ultimately changed their minds and limited the Heath Slater gang beating to the APA and those who had already participated in the storyline.

Charlie Sheen Talks About Possible Match With Daniel Bryan

Credit: IGN

It was a bit of an awkward situation for the WWE recently when the man they’d promoted as their “Social Media Ambassador” for the 1000th episode of RAW, Charlie Sheen, quit Twitter just a couple of weeks that episode aired – cutting off his main social media connection in the process.

Sheen ended up appearing on the 1000th episode periodically via Skype, which ultimately led to a war of words between the actor and wrestler Daniel Bryan – which, given how WWE operates, most fans assume is setting up some bigger confrontation between the two, likely at SummerSlam, which will take place in Los Angeles again.

Wrestling Wrap Up: WWE RAW’s 1000th Episode

That potential turn of events hasn't been met enthusiastically by some WWE fans, who’d prefer Bryan not be in a storyline so outside the wrestling world. But for the time being, there hasn’t been any actual confirmation on Sheen returning to WWE or specifically at SummerSlam.

Today, at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, I had the chance to ask Sheen about his recent appearance on WWE RAW and the controversial actor said, “Well, the numbers worked for us. Because I cancelled Twitter, I had to do that as a backup plan. It was fun. It was the deepest into that world I’d ever gone. And I guess the guy who was egging me on is a real problem. And he and I will solve that later. Print that.”

Sheen then added, “It was a promotional tool for our show [Anger Management] and I think everybody is going to win on that one. But it was exciting just to step into a different world that I didn’t ever really believe existed – and still don’t!”

When I asked him if perhaps he might look to solve those issues at a televised event on August 19th (as in, SummerSlam), Sheen replied, “Oh, there’s gonna have to be a lot of money on that one, but yeah, if it’s the right look at that moment, sure, why not
