WWE RAW results and grade: Randy Orton attacks McIntyre and sends message:

Randy Orton shames everyone for thinking he wouldn’t make it to Clash of Champions. Doesn’t his track record speak for itself? 20 years on the roster and he’s never walked away from a title match. He won’t do that anytime soon… but the World Title match at Clash of Champions isn’t exactly a normal match.

Orton gets out of the ring and walks up to the ambulance that is parked next to the stage. Orton opens the back doors and says he took a ride in this very ambulance a few weeks ago. He took not one, not two, not three… well actually three Claymore Kicks. As they were flying down the highway and the sirens were blaring, he was fading out of consciousness.

The feeling came over him is the feeling of being taken out by The Legend Killer. That was what Edge, Christian, Big Show, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, and even Drew McIntyre felt like when he kicked them in the skull. When he came to in the back of the ambulance, he felt a smile. He wasn’t smiling because of the pain. He was smiling because he remembered what he is capable of and remembered what it takes to become WWE Champion. This ambulance represents different things for different people. For some, it represents hope and healing. For others it represents pain, agony, and even death. This ambulance represents to him is his 14th World Championship. Orton tells McIntyre to listen up. At Clash of Champions, he’ll make sure McIntyre takes one more ride in this ambulance. His World Title reign will flatline courtesy of the three most dangerous letters in sports entertainment: R-K-O. Orton slams the doors of the ambulance and stares into the camera.

Orton takes the edge of the chair and digs it into the broken jaw of McIntyre. McIntyre screams in pain. Orton then turns to Lee and hits him with a Punt Kick. Orton looks down at the destruction he caused.

WWE RAW results and grade: Rey Mysterio family and Seth Rollins Promo:

Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring holding a manila envelope. Rollins says it is no secret that he’s had the Mysterios’ number for a while. After he beat Dominik last week in a Steel Cage, he thought it was all done. Rollins thought he was free of the torment the Mysterio family has put him through for months… but something has been bothering him about the Mysterio family for quite some time. Rollins should let it go, but he was inspired to look into it by the most unlikely of sources. WWE.com posted a series of photographs of the Mysterio family this week. A light bulb went off in his head. The world has to know the truth. It’s hard to do it justice with words.

A photograph of the Mysterio family is shown on the big screen. Rollins tells the people to look at Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio. It doesn’t seem possible or fathomable. It’s almost unbelievable. We deserve the truth, so he had some people do some digging. In this folder is the results of that investigation. Before he delivers the information to the WWE Universe, he’d like to extend a courtesy to the Mysterio family to come out and find out the truth from him in person. Rollins owes them that much.

The Mysterio family comes out to the stage. Rey says they are tired of the games and are going to give him a beating like they did to Murphy. Rollins says he’s grown to respect this family and what they stand for. It might sound weird, but he’s inspired by them. They stand together and cheer each other on. They fight together and overcome adversity. That’s why they deserve the truth. In this envelope is the results of a DNA test. It’s been done before, but times have changed. They need to get to the bottom of this once and for all. They need an answer to the question. Is Rey Mysterio really Dominik’s father. Rollins takes out the paper and says the truth is… Rey Mysterio is not the father of Dominik. Rollins laughs.

Rey asks if he really brought them out here for this. They’ve been there before. It didn’t work then and it won’t work now. Rollins needs to stop running his family through the mud. Rollins says Rey might be onto something. Maybe he made a mistake. Maybe his guy got the wrong Mysterio kid. Maybe it’s not Dominik… maybe it’s Aaliyah who is not his daughter. Aaliyah laughs. Rollins has concrete evidence aside from the DNA test.

Footage is shown of Aaliyah checking on Murphy before getting in the ring last week on Raw. Rollins asks if that’s really his daughter. That doesn’t seem like something a Mysterio would do. She was consoling his disciple, Murphy. What was going on? Aaliyah… what was going on there, Rollins asks. Rey says they already spoke about it, but he raised his daughter to be caring and compassionate, something Rollins knows nothing about. Rey tells Rollins to keep his daughter’s name out of his mouth. She’s just 19-years-old. She’s naive and knows nothing about their world. Aaliyah looks insulted and walks off on him. Angie, Rey’s wife, goes after her. Rey and Dominik look confused. Rey walks away, and Dominik angrily stares at Rollins before going to the back.
