WWE Monday Night Raw 7/28 results

Raw starts off with highlights of the Brie Bella/Stephanie McMahon angle from last week and highlights of Brock Lesnar being announced as John Cena's opponent.

Opening segment - John Cena kicks off the show. He still has both titles. Cena noted that there's a lively crowd in Houston and normally he'd share their enthusiasm but last week it was revealed that plan C is what he hoped would never happen...Brock Lesnar. He said that he's a marked man by The Authority because they want the title off of his neck so badly that they hired a mercenary. He referenced the cheers during Heyman's promo because some of the WWE Universe wants to see Brock beat the hell out of him. The crowd chanted "YES." He said that 40 men have been champion but one beast has defeated the streak. He said that he will get the beating of a lifetime. He said though that he will not lay down and will fight and will got to SummerSlam to beat Brock Lesnar like he did in 2012. He said that if Brock becomes champion people won't realize what will happen to the title. He said he doesn't know who can stop Brock...not The Authority and certainly not Paul Heyman. Heyman then came out on the ramp. Heyman said that Cena is about to be turned into a victim. Heyman said that Cena's never been victimized. He told him to ask The Undertaker what it's like to be victimized. He said that actually he can't ask him because no one has heard from The Undertaker since WrestleMania. Heyman said that Brock is charging forward and on the offensive and Brock will not just F5 and pin Cena...he will victimize Cena ruthless and mercifully. Cena told him that he's sick of his crap and he wants to talk to him "real." He talked about Heyman having passion for the letters "E-C-W." He said that he (Cena) and Heyman share passion. He said that he has passion for what he does. He said that Brock has no passion for anything but himself but what separates him from Brock is heart. He said that he will have beat every last breath out of his body and he will walk out as champion with this "son of a bitch." Awesome promo. Cesaro came out and shook Paul's hand and hugged him. Paul looked surprised. Cesaro said that even though he and Heyman went their separate ways he won't allow Cena to talk to Heyman like this. He said that Cena isn't a wrestler, he's a walking billboard. He mocked Cena's sneakers. He said that Cena can't wrestle. He said he'd prove it in a match right now. Cena said that it will be an honor t wrestle circles around Cesaro. The match is next.

AJ said that she doesn't play little girl games and she doesn't smile in front of someone and then whisper behind their back and if she wants to talk crap then it's gonna be to her face like a real woman. Paige said that she swears that she's her friend and if AJ doesn't believe that then she's crazy. AJ didn't like being called "crazy." Paige said that she'd never make fun of AJ's mental health.
