WWE Raw: Live Results, Reaction and Analysis for October 14
Welcome to Bleacher Report's live WWE Monday Night Raw coverage for October 14. Hell in a Cell is right around the corner, and WWE has only given themselves three weeks to build the pay-per-view.
Raw has a lot of ground to cover, with several storylines likely to be addressed on the show.
Big Show knocking out Triple H is going to have some major fallout for the giant, and it will be very interesting to see how WWE proceeds from here with the angle.

How will Triple H react to be knocked out by Big Show last week?
Who will the Rhodes brothers end up facing this week?
Will Damien Sandow make a play for the World title?
What will happen with CM Punk, Ryback and Paul Heyman?

Raw had a few great moments, but some of the show was a little flat. At least we know more about Hell in a Cell following Raw.

Cody Rhodes and Goldust vs. The Shield (No DQ Tag Title Match) Part 2
Goldust is being worked on in The Shield's corner when we return. Cody breaks up a pin, which the ref seems pissed about despite being a no DQ match.
I don't get while all four men aren't in the ring at the same time. It's not like they would get disqualified.
Almost all of Goldust's paint is off his face after the beating he has taken. He nearly makes the tag to Cody, but Reigns cuts him off.

Cody Rhodes and Goldust vs. The Shield (No DQ Tag Title Match) Part 1
The Shield are out after the break. We get the official introductions and then the bell rings. Rollins starts off against Rhodes, with Cody taking control.
Goldust tags in and keeps up the pressure to Rollins. Cody comes back in and gets a near fall after giving Rollins a hard knee to the face.
Dean Ambrose trips up Rhodes, which is legal. Reigns tags in and starts stomping on Rhodes with authority.
Rollins is back in to keep Rhodes away from Goldust, but he eventually gets the tag and Goldust comes in hot with lots of offense to Rollins.
He sets him up for Shattered Dreams, but he settles for a bulldog instead after Reigns gets in his way. Goldust misses a cross body and goes right out of the ring as we head to a break.
The Shield are shown talking with Stephanie and Triple H. Triple H says the title match is no DQ, and he tells them to finish the Rhodes brothers.
Stephanie starts kissing him as soon as they leave the room. I guess the idea of violence is one of her turn ons in this storyline.

Cesaro hits the Big Swing on Tensai after the match, much to the delight of the crowd.
Tons of Funk and The Funkadactyls come out for the next match.
Stephanie is shown walking backstage after the break and she runs into the Bella twins, fakingly congratulating Brie on her engagement.
She puts Brie in a match with Tamina, and she bans Nikki from ringside, while saying AJ will have a great view of the match.
We get a commercial for the Goldberg DVD.

Triple H talks about being the COO of WWE because he wanted to make sure the fans got what they wanted, even if it meant putting up with a lot of crap.
He says he reached his breaking point when Big Show punched him in the face and the fans chanted Yes, which of course makes them Yes.
Triple H was really good in this promo. I forget sometimes how good he is on the mic when he is acting pissed off. He says anyone saying the word Yes better start praying, and then Daniel Bryan comes out and makes the chant grow louder.
Alberto Del Rio comes out of nowhere and takes Bryan out while Triple H and Stephanie watch from the ring. Del Rio hits Bryan with his signature running side kick, and then Stephanie mocks him before saying Bryan will face Del Rio tonight.
Cole throws to a video of Big Show knocking out Triple H last week.
