Monday Night RAW Review (8/26/13)…

                                                                                                                                                                                This was a Monday night RAW that came to us from Las Vegas Nevada and I tell you that it was a good one. It opened with HHH handing Randy Orton yet another gift as he gave him a Cadillac Escalade. That he supposedly paid for with his own money!! (Yeah Right) But that just opened a show that was full of great matches lead by a great match between Del Rio and RVD that almost brought the house down. The Main Event finished that job as Daniel Bryan once again brought the house down in a gauntlet match against the shield. This effectively broke down into a beat down at Bryans expense as we see the road that he will have to take to earn a WWE title run that he is so obviously deserving of. For now onto the matches…
