WWE RAW Results (8/5) – Daniel Bryan’s Corporate Makeover, Kane Confronts The Wyatts, Orton Makes A Statement

Bill Pritchard

Wade comes out with some clippers and a grooming kit, and Vince says he'll do this because he wants to be WWE Champion more than anything. Bryan asks Wade to leave part of it, then he headbutts Wade and shaves half of his beard, to which Wade obviously flips out. Bryan hits him again and shaves some more, then he shoves Wade in the chair and runs up the ramp. Bryan says if Vince wants him to change, he says no, and he likes who he is. Bryan says he is staying the same and he will be WWE Champion, then he takes off his dress shirt and says 'the beard is here,' which it also says on his shirt.

Alberto Del Rio (w/ Ricardo Rodriguez) vs Rob Van Dam

Alberto whips RVD into the corner but RVD takes him down with a monkey flip, then he drops him with a thrust kick and a standing moonsault for two. Alberto kicks him and goes for a leg lariat, but RVD avoids it and kicks Alberto outside, and takes him down with a slingshot dive as we go to a break. We get back to see RVD hit a few elbows, then he goes for Rolling Thunder but Alberto rolls away and superkicks him for a near fall. Alberto goes for a step up enziguiri but RVD ducks, then he hits a springboard thrust kick and Rolling Thunder before setting up a split legged moonsault. Alberto gets his knees up and Ricardo wedges his bucket in the turnbuckles, but RVD reverses a whip and sends Alberto into it headfirst, then makes the cover. Alberto looks pissed as he gets up, then Ricardo tries to reason with him but Alberto superkicks him and beats him with the bucket before throwing him outside. Alberto hits him a few more times on the floor, then he wedges Ricardo's head in the steps and dropkicks it before taunting the fans with his title.

Winner – Rob Van Dam

Cody Rhodes comes to the ring and says true friends stab you in the front, so Damien Sandow was never his friend, and he'll remind them all why. After a highlight clip, Cody says he spared no expense and he got the briefcase back, then he pulls it out of a box and tells Sandow to come and get it. Sandow walks out and demands he put the case down and leave, then Cody leaves as Sandow gets in the ring, but Cody runs back in and attacks him. Cody hits him a few times and rolls him out of the ring, then Cody opens the case and keeps the contract, then throws the case at Sandow on the ramp.
