Title This: WWE Raw Reaction June 3rd, 2013

RybackThe Main Events

It was a treat to see Stephanie McMahon, Vince McMahon, and Triple H on television together. It felt more realistic because they do not always appear on WWE TV. Triple H is pulled from him match, thanks to Vince and Stephanie. Triple H gets upset and winds up leaving. I really liked this because it was a quick impact, made us want to know what will happen next week, and continues a storyline that will ultimately benefit Triple H. Stephanie added 2 "Paul" comments, breaking kayfabe. It was well done and clever. I am all for seeing the McMahon's on television to further a storyline.

Grade: B

Daniel Bryan defeated Ryback in a great match that lasted close to 15 minutes. I cannot say enough about Bryan and his ability to make even the worst of opponent's look good. His magnitude of submission holds are impressive, with his drive and desire to put on the best match really taking over WWE Raw. Ryback put him through a table until John Cena came out and made the save. It would set up our main event…

Curtis Axel defeated John Cena when Cena was counted out. I loved the intensity and aggression they let Axel have in this match. After a back and forth match, Axel used a steel chair to beat the hell out of John Cena. The intelligence behind the beatdown was really good. I did not really like how it ended up making Axel look like he cannot get the job done. He continuously beat down the champion, but it had to take a computer to the head to daze him, followed by Ryback sending him through the table. Ryback should have tossed Cena in the ring so Axel could get the pinfall victory. It would have made more of an impact for the young guy.
