WWE Raw Results: Winners, Grades, Twitter Reaction and Highlights from Sept. 2
via WWE.com

Last week, "Stone Cold" Daniel Bryan went straight Steve Austin on the McMahon family and their handpicked champion, Randy Orton, laying waste to a poor, blameless automobile in the process.  Meanwhile, Paul Heyman gave CM Punk the kind of beating that, for once, wiped that smug look off his face.

It was a hot show, but then again, the WWE needs all the heat it can get right now. John Cena, the face of the company for years, is out of action until the end of the year. Every month, WWE could count on Cena carrying a heavy load on pay-per-view and in the lead segment of almost every edition of Raw. That crutch is gone. If WWE creative has any tricks up its sleeve, now is the time.

Monday night, it swung for the fences in Des Moines. And, after putting together quite a show on the undercard, when it mattered most, it whiffed and whiffed badly.

The Big Show, tears in his eyes, would have needed to be an Emmy-caliber actor to breathe life into the nonsensical material he was handed to work with. Of course, he's the Big Show and not Peter Dinklage. He failed—and badly. Here's hoping he didn't take the entire angle down with him.

As always, I graded every segment of Monday night's show from A-F. Disagree? Sound off in the comments.
