WWE Raw TV news & notes 9/16

-- Daniel Bryan was stripped of the WWE Title 11 minutes into Raw following the Night of Champions PPV. Randy Orton was not given back the WWE Title, so there is currently no WWE champion coming out of Raw. WWE did not indicate how they will go about determining a new champion.

Bryan was stripped of the title after referee Scott Armstrong suggested he fast-counted for Bryan at Night of Champions because he was working with Bryan. Bryan refuted the accusation, but heel executive Triple H stripped Bryan of the title, then "fired" Armstrong later in the show.

-- Dusty Rhodes was KO'ed by Big Show as part of an angle extending the McMahon Power Trip. Later, The Miz was taken out by Randy Orton in his hometown of Cleveland as part of the McMahons trying to light a fire under Orton after he lost to Bryan at Night of Champions.

As a result of this week's Power Trip developments, the locker room finally stood up to The Shield and Randy Orton by clearing the ring following the main event of Daniel Bryan vs. Roman Reigns. Bryan and a collection of mid-card babyfaces then stood tall to close Raw. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon did not appear at the end of Raw to react to the locker room rising up.

-- Ryback explained his new association with Paul Heyman by saying he does not like bullies and he felt that C.M. Punk bullied Heyman at Night of Champions. Heyman credited Ryback for saving his life, then kissed Ryback on the cheek.

C.M. Punk did not appear on Raw one night after "losing" to Heyman at Night of Champions.

-- The Usos became #1 contenders to the Tag Titles by winning a three-team elimination match over The Real Americans and Tons of Funk.

-- Dolph Ziggler earned a future U.S. Title match by defeating U.S. champion Dean Ambrose in a non-title match.

-- WWE continued the Divas Title feud between champion A.J. Lee and top contender Natalya.
