Also, there was an announcement that Rey Mysterio’s son Dominick had accepted Seth Rollin’s invitation to join him on RAW, despite his father’s disapproval.
Randy Orton registered a win over Christian in the main event of Raw after hitting him with a Punt. Before the match began, Ric Flair came to the ring and once again tried to keep Christian from fighting Orton. After the match, EMTs attempted to take Christian away on a stretcher while a conflicted Orton screamed at him about why what just happened is his fault.
