WWE Raw Results 9/2/2013 - 9th Sept 2013

Here are the WWE Raw Results held on 9/2/2013...

Triple H comes out with The Shield to introduce the "face of the WWE", Randy Orton, then the WWE Champion makes his way down to the ring. Orton says it's his responsibility to protect the company, and people will be dealt with if they disrespect him or the company. He says Daniel Bryan is a good example, because Bryan defaced his new Cadillac Escalade, and he had no choice but to retaliate. They play a clip from Smackdown of Orton spray painting 'NO' on Bryan's chest, then he asks if they really think Bryan should face him at Night of Champions. Orton says no, and Bryan has no chance of beating him because he will be nothing more than a B+ player here in WWE. Orton asks if Bryan should give up his title shot and says YES, he should, then HHH says it's his job to ensure WWE puts out the best product they possibly could.

HHH says another job he has is to ensure the health and welfare of the roster, but he's been wondering about Bryan's health because he keeps getting into bad situations. He says the fans don't help because they keep chanting 'YES', and that's a problem because they are making Bryan think he's popular. HHH says Bryan is confusing popularity with 'best for business', and he wants to give them an example of why popularity never works. HHH talks about Doink the Clown being popular, but he wasn't championship material, just like Bryan isn't, but he won't stop him from trying. He says he could bring back the Cruiserweight or European Championships, and that would be fine for Bryan, but he isn't best for the WWE Championship.

Bryan comes out and says he's honored to be compared to Doink, but he doesn't think people chanted for him in 1992, and he's looking at two clowns now. Bryan says they want him to give up his title shot, and he understands it, because HHH gave up being a man when he cut his hair and went corporate. He says Orton basically gave up being in the title picture until someone handed it to him, then Bryan asks the crowd what they think about giving up his match. Bryan says the answer is the same as if Orton is more manly than Stephanie McMahon, then he starts a NO chant until Orton cuts him off. Bryan says Orton has never heard no, but he's always been told he can't do something, like being a World Champion. Bryan says the doubt made him who he is, and Orton will never understand how it is because he's always been given everything. Bryan says he knows he can beat Orton, and deep down Orton and HHH know it, otherwise they wouldn't put him in gauntlet matches and beat him up. He says they know what the fans know, and Orton might have the genetics of a champion, but he has no heart and he just acts like a big dog. HHH cuts him off and says he is too angry, but his anger is misdirected because Bryan should be mad at Big Show, who watches him get beat up every week. He says Show stands and watches the attacks, but Bryan can get his anger out in tonight's main event when he faces Big Show one on one.

HHH and Orton are shown walking backstage bragging about making Bryan and Big Show fighting, then they run into Cody Rhodes and say hello. Cody says tonight's main event should be good if no one gets involved, and HHH asks him what exactly he means by that. Cody says with all due respect, Orton versus Bryan is good for business, then HHH tells him that he decides what is good for business, not him. HHH says Cody is probably busy planning his wedding, one that he didn't get invited to, but he did get him a wedding present, a match with Orton tonight. Cody says it's a honor, but HHH says Cody needs to win or he won't be here much longer, and there's a lot riding on him coming through.

Miz kicks him in the face and applies a chinlock as we go to a break, then we get back to see Fandango whip Miz into the ropes. Fandango throws him headfirst into the turnbuckles and chokes him on the ropes, then Summer hits Miz in the face while Fandango taunts the crowd.

Daniel Bryan is shown getting ready when Booker T approaches him, and Booker wants a word with him but Bryan says he is busy getting ready. Booker says he insists, and he knows Bryan wants to fight HHH and Orton, but he needs to think about his decision because he is better than wrestling in gyms. He suggests Bryan think about giving up his title shot, but Bryan says Booker should tell him he didn't just say that. Bryan says he fought too long and too hard, but Booker says he doesn't know what he's up against because HHH's power reaches farther than Bryan knows of.

Stephanie heads to the ring and says she wants to bring out someone who helped her when she first started out, then she calls Big Show down to the ring so she could speak with him. Stephanie says Show taught her that it's OK to do things you don't agree with, and he needs to think of the consequences because he is broke. She mentions he made some bad financial decisions, then she says his 'iron clad contract' will be void if he refuses to compete and fulfill his duties. Stephanie gets to him a bit more when she tells him he could end up fired, and he should think of his family because giants don't usually live as long as normal sized people do. She says he needs to compete tonight and do the right thing, but he is most of all hurting her, then she hugs him and walks away as he starts to cry.

Heyman says they'd never see him again if Punk got his hands on him, and Maddox all but guaranteed it by booking him in a match in Night of Champions. He says he doesn't think it's good for business, then HHH walks in and says he heard them talking about business, and he thought that was his cue to step in. HHH excuses Maddox from the room, then he tells Heyman he approved the match but it's not about their history together. HHH says he did this so Heyman doesn't weasel his way out of this, and if he does, good, but Punk could also give him the beating of a lifetime.
