As seen earlier tonight on Raw, R-Truth made his return by helping out Kofi Kingston as he was being attacked by Damien Sandow. R-Truth has been out of action ever since last year's TLC PPV, when he suffered a nasty gash to his knee during the United States title match with Antonio Cesaro.

Live results for WWE Raw 2/18/13

Tonight, the Road to Wrestlemania 29 truly begins, with 7 weeks until the big show. Expect a lot of fallout from last night's Elimination Chamber. Jack Swagger pursues his American Dream (no, not Dusty Rhodes) of claiming Alberto Del Rio's World Heavyweight Championship. Who will the Shield interfere with next and how will Ryback and Randy Orton recover from their losseslast night? Will Brock Lesnar appear or even Triple H? How will CM Punk react to losing his cance at the WWE title? And the build up starts to the Wrestlemania 28 rematch, as John Cena looks set to take on The Rock, this time for the WWE Title. Keep it here for ALL the info from tonight's Raw, live from Lafayette, LA.

Show starts with 'Previously on WWE... stuff happened'

John Cena makes his way to the ring. He says that after last night, we now have the beginnings of Wresltemania 29 taking shape, with theWWE and World Heavyweight Championship matches. Cue CM Punk making his way out, Paul Heyman alongside. Punk asks Cena if that what he wants, adding that he always takes the easy way out. He says that Rock beat him last night... after hitting the referee and Punk having him out for an 18-count. Punk then say that Cena has never beaten him. Cena says it's about Wrestlemania, not wins and losses. Punk begs to differ, saying that Cena got the easy way to a Wrestlemania match by winning the Royal Rumble. He's sick of seeing Cena vs. Rock again, and wants Cena to walk away from WWE, it seems.

He doesn't, but praises Punk's honesty, adding that he's not going to give away his chance. He says that Punk wants the WWE title and that he wants it as well. So he says that he'll put his title shot on the line tonight against CM Punk, the winner going to take on the Rock at Mania 29, adding that whoever wins deserves to go for the WWE title. Punk talks with Heyman and says that due to being screwed last night, the match is on his terms, so he wants to face him next week. Crowd isn't happy with this. Cena agrees to let the match happen next week, as he wants Punk to rest up and be ready to lose next week, cos the Champ Is Here. Nice opening promo.

Rock's having a WWE Tilte celebration party later.

Little insert for President's Day.

Matt Striker is backstage with Sheamus, discussing last night's loss to Shield. Ryback comes in and it looks as if the two guys are about to go at it. Chris Jericho stops them and says that The Shield is winning by destroying WWE, like the NWO and Nexus did, by making the WWE turn on itself. He says that he's wrestled only for WWE since 1999, and he'll only ever wrestle for them. He then says that they should take them out, so being in the good graces of Vickie apparently due to being resigned by her he'll set up for tonight The Shield vs. Ryback, Sheamus and Y2J. Jericho heads off and Ryback gets in Sheamus's face and says FEED ME SHIELD!

Sin Cara is in the ring now, he's going to be taking on Mark Henry.

Match 1 - Sin Cara vs. Mark Henry
Squash match. Henry wins with the World's Strongest Slam.

Post match, it looks as if Henry's going after Cara again, only for Great Khali's music to hit. Khali comes to the ring, but Henry leaves the ring, mocking Khali's dancing as he goes.

They replay last night's DQ in the Miz vs. Cesaro match. Up next, Cesaro defends his US title once again against The Miz, only this time, it's a no DQ match. I smell a title change. They also show a tweet from Vickie, saying the Shield vs. Jericho, Ryback & Sheamus is confirmed for tonight.

Another Fandango promo. Yawn.

Antonio Cesaro is in the ring, as is The Miz and they're showing a replay of Cesaro's attack on Miz on last week's Raw.

Match 2 - United States Championship - No Disqualification - The Miz vs. Antonio Cesaro (c)
Decent match. Mis gets the win and the US Title with a Figure Four Leglock on Cesaro.
WINNER and NEW US Champion - The Miz

They replay Miz's win and then touch on Swagger's win in the Chamber last night. Swagger's state of the Union address will be later, but they show Zeb & Jack's views on immigration on Youtube. Nice vid putting their views over, even though I'm not a fan of the angle.

Next week, Cena vs Punk for a
