So That Happened: #RAW Recap (06/16/14)


RAW begins with The Authority addressing the WWE Locker Room.

After welcoming the WWE Superstars to RAW, Stephanie McMahon says they gathered the Superstars out here for a meeting to address the concerns the roster has about not having a WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Triple H adds on that these Superstars lay it all on the line to prove they are the best, and they do that to receive the honor of WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Stephanie McMahon says that when you are WWE Champion, you are immortalized like her husband, Triple H. Stephanie thinks the WWE is only as a strong as it’s champion and that it’s disappointing that the WWE Superstars were represented by a B+ Player like Daniel Bryan.

After a loud “YES!” chant, Triple H says that the most disappointing thing about Daniel Bryan is that he has no heart and and that his selfishness brought about his refusal to defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and give the WWE Superstars the opportunity they deserve. Triple H says the WWE Superstars and WWE Universe deserve better than that.

Triple H says one of the WWE Superstars standing on stage right now could be the next WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Stephanie agrees since The Authority is all about opportunity. Stephanie announces there will be a battle royal tonight to determine the next participant in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match at Money In The Bank. The winner of the Battle Royal will join Cesaro, Randy Orton Alberto Del Rio, #ScumbagSheamus and Bray Wyatt. Triple H follows up by saying, due to their failure to adapt, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and John Cena will not be allowed to participate in the Money In The Bank Battle Royal.
