WWE Raw TV taping results
February 4, 2013
Atlanta, Ga.
Report by Trey Fowler, PWTorch correspondent


After Raw went off the air, John Cena and Ryback took on C.M. Punk and Dolph Ziggler, as advertised. Ziggler, who did not appear during Raw, was accompanied by A.J. and Big E. Langston. Before the match started, Punk cut another promo in which he stated he can't suck because he isn't from Atlanta. Punk also stated that the match would be an Australian Tag match.

Bonus Dark Match: John Cena & Ryback beat C.M. Punk & Dolph Ziggler (w/A.J. & Big E.). The match was back and forth and included A.J. slapping Cena mid-match. Ziggler caught Ryback with a superkick after a Big E. distraction. Punk and Ziggler then proceeded to double-team and isolate Ryback for the next few minutes in typical heel tag team fashion. Ryback finally made the hot tag to Cena, but the ref was distracted. Big E. then laid waste to Ryback, only to be ejected from ringside by the ref along with A.J., who got a nice parting ref bump. Cena finally tagged in and proceeded to hit the Five Knuckle Shuffle and hit his finisher for the victory.

The Raw taping at 11:34 p.m., four hours and three minutes after the taping started.

Biggest Pops:

(1) Cena
(2) Sheamus/Orton
(3) Lesnar
(4) Jericho
(5) Miz after standing up to Lesnar

Most Heat:

(1) C.M. Punk
(2) Vickie Guerrero
(3) Mark Henry

Best Match: Punk vs. Jericho. One would expect nothing less from two of the best wrestlers on the roster. The crowd was into the match from start to finish, at one point having a dueling "C.M. Punk/"Y2J" chant. The crowd then put their stamp of approval on the match with a "This is Awesome" chant. This match gave Atlanta fans their money's worth.

Worst Match: Santino vs. Swagger. Due merely to the brevity of the match, although it suceeded in further establishing Swagger's new-found focus and aggression.
