We begin this week’s show with a look at the Almost Everyone in the Locker Room versus The Shield match that was a pretext for the return of Evolution.

We are in Baltimore, Maryland and your announcers are John ‘Old Bay’ Layfield, Michael ‘Wild Bill Hagy’ Cole, and Jerry ‘Did you see my son on last night’s Total Divas’ Lawler.

The WWE World Champion makes his return to Raw and he makes his way to the ring and he is with his wife Brie and they hug in the ring.

Stephanie McMahon makes her way to the ring before Bryan can say anything.

Stephanie says that she couldn’t resist the moment to congratulate Daniel and Brie. She would be chanting yes too. From the bottom of her heart, she is sincere. He wins the WWE World Championship and then marries the love of his life in the same week. It was an organic, crunchy, rustic wedding if you are into that.

Since the WWE is a family, they wanted to get Daniel and Brie a wedding present. It is not a traditional present because they are not a traditional company. Daniel will defend the WWE World Title against the Devil’s Favorite Demon at Extreme Rules.

Since Kane said that he wanted to eviscerate Daniel last week, she would make sure that Daniel got his pretty little wife out of the way.

Kane’s pyro goes off and they look at the stage.

Stephanie tells Kane ‘not now’. This isn’t the right time or place. Daniel has Brie leave the ring and they by the announce table. Kane is in the Roberts’ cubicle and he grabs Bryan by the throat. Bryan punches Kane but Kane punches back Bryan attacks Kane from behind when he goes after Brie. Bryan sends Kane into the steps with a drop toe hold. Kane catches Bryan off the apron and Kane sends Bryan into the ringside barrier.

Stephanie says that is enough but Kane does not listen. Kane gives Bryan a tombstone piledriver on the floor.

Stephanie keeps telling Kane that is enough. Kane throws the ring steps aside because he does not know the meaning of ‘enough’. Kane drags Bryan to the ring steps. Kane sets for a second tombstone on the steps and he gives Bryan another one.

Stephanie calls for the EMTs. The medical staff and referees check on Bryan while Kane goes to the back. They put a collar on Bryan. Kane pushes Bryan off the stretcher and Kane throws the stretcher aside. Kane rearranges the announce table and he throws the monitors aside while Stephanie continues to tell Kane to stop.

Kane picks up Bryan on the table and he hits a third tombstone piledriver, this time on the announce table.

Stephanie calls Kane a bastard and he leaves the ringside area and goes to the back. We go to commercial.

We are back and Daniel Bryan is being placed on the stretcher again and Brie is by his side.

Stephanie is in the ring and she wants a very warm round of applause for Daniel as he is being wheeled out of the arena.

The announcers are not sure of what to say about what just happened.

Wade Barrett says that he has some bad news, but it is not as bad as the news for Daniel Bryan. Shamrocks and Lucky Charms will not work tonight. The luck of the Irish is running out. This is not St. Patrick’s Day. It is the day that Sheamus is defeated by Bad News Barrett.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Bo Dallas tells us we cannot spell Challenge without ‘Change’. He tells us to BOlieve.

Michael Cole shows us Hugh Jackman’s appearance on Raw in September 2011 when he punched Dolph Ziggler. Hugh will be on next week’s Raw. We see the Twitter conversation between Jackman and Ziggler and the insertion into the discussion by Damien Sandow.

Michael Cole tells you to go to the App to choose John Cena’s opponent for tonight. Will it be Luke Harper, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan, or the whole Wyatt Family.

Speaking of the Wyatts, they appear on the stage. Bray says that he remembers the first time he was struck with truth. The taste was better and it was SO intense. He liked it. It was something real. Free will has become man’s biggest illusion. They promise it to you just in time to take it away from you again.

What have we become? A nation full of mindless sheep? Tonight would be what a wonderful night for change. What a wonderful night for change . . . indeed. Tonight, they have left the power in your hands. Those fools. Tonight free will does exist. Tonight you make the choice. What fate will you choose for your knight in shining armor? Will you choose the path of less pain for your hero or is tonight the night that John Cena finally learns the truth. The truth is that we stand against you. Whether it be this brother or that brother. Whether it be inside a steel cage or inside your mind, we stand against you. At Extreme Rules, inside the steel cage, two monsters will enter. It will not matter which monster has the longest claws or the sharpest teeth. One thing will remain the same, they do not love you any more.

Bray asks if you can feel it. Every time they cross paths, he takes more from him. They are all coming with him. Listen John. Listen as it happens John. Won’t they sing with me.

Bray gets on his knees and he smiles as we go to commercial.

We are back and we see the footage from the last week to justify the next match

We take a look at the return to the ring for Evolution after The Shield had to face 11 men.

A limo arrives at the Arena and Evolution emerges.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Evolution makes their way to the ring

Hunter says that he laughs every time he thinks about it. Imagine what it feels like. You tell the whole world that you are the baddest guys on the planet week in and week out. Then one day, your daddy comes out and spanks you in front of the world. That is humiliating and humbling. That is just the beginning.

Orton says that it takes just a single spark to set the world on fire. It was one careless act by the Shield that set the gears of their destruction. The reformation of the most dominant and most feared group . . . Evolution.

We have a video package for Evolution.

Batista asks if you are starting to get it now. Thirty-one world titles in the ring between the three of them. The Shield has absolutely no idea what they have gotten themselves into. He tells them to deal with that.

The Shield’s music plays and they make their way through the crowd and to ringside.

Evolution shows how powerful they are by leaving the ring while The Shield enter the ring.

Dean says last week wasn’t the first time they were beaten up and won’t be the last. He tells them well done. Dean has a question for Hunter. Do they look humbled to him?

DO WE LOOK HUMBLE TO YOU? There was a reason why they were hired to protect him and the creampuff next to him. The Shield are the meanest, nastiest, and dirtiest animals. They are angry.

Seth says that they have every right to be angry because of what happened last week. It was them and 12 other guys. For Batista to say that they have no idea what they have gotten themselves into, they are the ones who started it.

They stand on the stage in their suits, but they don’t want to fight. They talk about how powerful they are and how they were built for dominance. In two weeks, they will come face to face with the Hounds of Justice and it will be war. When they have nowhere to run, will they be looking out for each other? Randy Orton will be looking out for himself. Batista has his Hollywood obligations. Triple H will do what he always does. He will do ‘what’s best for the boss’.

What you are looking at is the most dominant force in the history of this company. In two weeks they will rip them apart and the reunion will come to an abrupt halt. When they made the match, they put a nail in their own coffin. They will be the hammer that drives it home.

Roman says last week, they were given an ultimatum. This week they will give them one. In a few moments, they will drop their mics and come up the ramp to kick their asses. They have two options. They can be men and try to fight him, or you can be creampuffs and cower away and hide.

The Shield go up the ramp but the 11 men who started things for Evolution last week.

Hunter says there is an option three. In life, you either adapt or you perish. That is Evolution.

We take a look back at how Raw started with Kane’s attack on Daniel Bryan.

Michael Cole tells us that Daniel Bryan was taken to a medical facility for observation.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Michael Cole tells us that there is a free week still available and there is a special for Hall of Fame inductions starting Tuesday at 10:00 PM for the next four days.

Curtis Axel and Ryback join the announce table.

Goldust with a punch but Jey punches back. Goldust with a clothesline and he tags in Cody. Cody with a springboard drop kick for a near fall. Cody with a wrist lock into a hammer lock.
