Live results for Raw 1/14/13 - 20th Anniversary Show

So it was 20 years ago today, that Sgt Pepper taught the band to play... oh wait, that's the Beatles... anyway...

Make sure you keep it here for all the goings on of tonight's live Raw from Houston, Texas, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Monday Night Raw show. Expect to see a list of faces both past and present appearing tonight, and possibly, with the Eve Torres rumors circling, a new champion?

We start with a montage of all the old Raw intros since 1993.

Vince McMahon is in the ring, going over some of the history and significance of Raw. He then setsup John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler in a Steel Cage match and The Rock will be performing tonight. Vince then thanks the fans, but Big Show's music cuts him off. Show gets to the ring and says that the celebrations will have to wait, due to what happened on Friday. Vince is not impressed by his approach. Show wants to discuss the loss of his World Heavyweight Title to Alberto Del Rio from Smackdown and Vince shows the footage. Show says he wasn't prepared to be in a Last Man Standing match and he wants Del Rio to be stripped of the belt.

Del Rio's music hits and Ricardo, carrying something, introduces him. Del Rio says he's willing to let Big Show have his rematch tonight, but Big Show refuses and suggests the Royal Rumble PPV instead. Del Rio calls him a fat jackass in Mexican and Big Show is less than impressed. Ricardo's present for show is a bucket of confetti. Big Show then tries to attack them, but Del Rio sees him off and, with assistance from Ricardo, manages to even perform a HURACUNRANA on Big Show! Vince then announces Del Rio as the champion. Very good opening segment.

We then get a reminder of the Cena/Ziggler cage match and the Rock concert later on.

Classic Raw Moment now, this one being THE PRICE IS RAW

Wade Barrett is out in the ring now, looking like he's ready for a match. His opponent is going to be Randy Orton... looks like a very strong opening match tonight. They also remind us that Orton will be taking on Antonio Cesaro on Wednesday's Main Event.

Match 1 - Wade Barrett vs. Randy Orton
Good strong opening match here, Wade Barrett getting the victory with the Bullhammer finisher.
WINNER - Wade Barrett

Reminder of the Rock concert and the first inductee to be announced for the 2013 Class of the WWE Hall Of Fame later on.

Back from break and Eve is backstage. Booker T & Teddy turn up and after discussion with Vickie Guerrero, a special stipulation has been set. If Eve tries to be counted out or disqualified, the belt will be stripped from her.

Dr Shelby's now doing his 4-month evaluation with Kane & Daniel Bryan now. Bryan says Kane's a good dancer and Kane says Bryan wears women's clothing. He then calls Rhodes Scholars in to try to antagonise Team Hell No, but Rhodes & Sandow keep disagreeing with Shelby on his methods, causing Shelby to get angry... that's kinda ironic. Team Hell No take Rhodes Scholars out and all 3 chant Yes! in unison.

Cut to the arena and Kane is making his way out for a match against Damien Sandow that's coming after the break.

Back from break and Sandow is already in the ring. It looks as if both Bryan & Cody are in their partner's respective corners. They then also announce that Team Hell No will be defending their WWE Tag Team Titles against Team Rhodes Scholars at the Royal Rumble in 2 weeks.

Match 2 - Kane (w/Daniel Bryan) vs. Damien Sandow (w/Cody Rhodes)
Kane wins this match pretty quickly with a clothesline.

The first inductee for the 2013 WWE Hall Of Fame will be announced next.

We now get a reminder of the Big Show/Del Rio segment from earlier.

The first inductee is now coming out to speak and it's MICK FOLEY!!!

But before Foley can even address the crowd properly, The Shield's music hits and they appear from the crowd. Just as they enter the ring, FEED ME MORE strikes and Ryback sees them off, followed by Randy Orton & Sheamus assisting in taking out The Shield. They successfully see them off to the back. They then replay the action.

Ryback then says to Josh Matthews, who randomly appears, that he's unhappy with the Shield's action over the past few months and then... FEED ME SHIELD!!!

More Classic Raw now, with classic Gimmicks, showcasing the Goon, Duke The Dumpster Droese, Gillberg and Goldust amongst others. WILLIAM REGAL FTW!!!
