Here are the WWE Raw Results from tonight's raw held on 8/19/2013:
John Cena starts the show off by saying he agrees with everyone else, and he's disgusted by what happened at Summerslam. He says he told Daniel Bryan he had to earn a win and he did, so he wants to thank Bryan for bringing the best out in him. Cena says they don't see eye-to-eye but he and Bryan live to compete, and he went into a match knowing the WWE doctors told him to get surgery and stay home. Cena mentions the large mass on his arm, and he says it's due to a torn triceps a few weeks ago, but he's not using it as an excuse. Cena says he was being tended to in the back when he heard about what happened to Bryan, but he needs to let them know that he is going to have surgery on his arm. He says they might be happy to see him go, but he'll miss them and he is going to get healthy and might be gone for four to six months.
Cena says he needs to introduce someone who he respects and deserves to be called champion, then Daniel Bryan comes out and Cena hands him the mic. Bryan takes it in as the crowd chants his name, then he tries to speak but Stephanie McMahon cuts him off and makes her way down to the ring. Stephanie says she is sorry to Bryan, and last night was taken from him after he won the title in a hard fought victory. She says he has to excuse her husband, and he acted because he's the COO and he was acting in the interest of what's good for business. Bryan says they don't know what is good for business, because they should listen to the fans and he would expect this from a McMahon, not HHH. He says HHH was a rebel, but now he went corporate, then he insults Stephanie and calls her trash and says HHH started to stink once he laid down with her.
Stephanie says she'll let that slide, but Bryan mocks her and says he doesn't care if he gets fired because he's not afraid of it, and he'll wrestle in gyms if he has to. Bryan says he'll get his money's worth, and he will get revenge on either HHH or Randy Orton and really give her a reason to fire him. Stephanie says no one wants to fire him and his anger is messing with his mind, and she knows Bryan is valuable here in WWE because he's the ultimate underdog. She says the people don't understand business, and she says not everyone can be champion but he does have a place here. Stephanie says he's not a 'A', but a 'solid B+', then Bryan says that's funny because she reminds him of a word that starts with the letter B. Bryan says he knows she is there to rationalize for her husband, but he doesn't have to stand there and accept being average because he can be WWE Champion. Bryan says he doesn't care what she thinks and slaps the mic out of her hand, then Stephanie gets another one and says he had better calm down. She says Bryan is out of control and she won't stand for it, then she calls for security and says Bryan is forcing her to do this. Stephanie asks them to escort Bryan out of the building, then Bryan leaves under his own power and starts a NO chant while Stephanie glares at him from the ring.
