Big Show, Dolph Ziggler, Intercontinental Champion Big E and Mark Henry def. Alberto Del Rio, Ryback, Curtis Axel and Damien Sandow

Triple H addressed Daniel Bryan's occupation of Raw
 How fitting that it's St. Patrick's Day, because after the events of last week's Raw, Triple H is seeing green. And not the DX neon green, either. The angry, sick-to-your-stomach kind of green after you are forcibly coerced into accepting a WrestleMania match you didn't want. However, given that he's set to face Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania with a potential spot for Bryan in the WWE World Heavyweight Title Match at stake, The King of Kings was in no mood for insubordination of any kind.
Imagine his frustration, then, when both WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton and No. 1 contender Batista appeared to voice their frustrations, instigating a shouting match that led to The Game making one final proclamation to his proteges: If he defeats Bryan at WrestleMania, it'll be the COO himself who joins the Title Match as the third participant. While both champion and challenger were less than pleased, it was Orton who struck first, dropping Batista with an RKO as The Game departed.
Big Show, Dolph Ziggler, Intercontinental Champion Big E and Mark Henry def. Alberto Del Rio, Ryback, Curtis Axel and Damien Sandow
Big Show had a big showing on Raw when he came up big for his teammates in an all-star Eight-Superstar Tag Team Match on Raw, just three weeks before he throws his hat into the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania. Granted, the giant and his buddies had a rough go in the beginning of the contest when Dolph Ziggler found himself isolated by the group's various foes.
A rally by The Showoff ended up moot when The Essence of Excellence smothered The Showoff with a chinlock, then tagged in his teammates to follow up in turn. Ziggler found daylight against Damien Sandow and tagged Show in, though Sandow's cohorts plunged the bout into chaos by storming the ring. The subterfuge didn't take hold, though, and Sandow found himself hoisted sky-high for a match-ending chokeslam.
Kane accused Jerry 'The King' Lawler of orchestrating Occupy Raw
Did Jerry 'The King' Lawler use the 'Yes!' Movement as his own personal court in his hometown of Memphis? Kane certainly seemed to think so, though The Devil's Favorite Director of Operations found his one-man investigation overturned by a truly unexpected enemy: The Shield.
The former WWE and World Heavyweight Champion Kane had just summoned Lawler into the ring under the pretense of exposing him as Bryan's inside man throughout Occupy Raw. That brought out The Shield, who at first seemed poised to put the WWE Hall of Famer down at the behest of The Big Red Monster. As it turns out, The Hounds of Justice were more than ready to bite the hand that's scalded them in recent weeks, and instead turned their focus towards Kane himself, to the tune of a big old Triple Powerbomb. Now that's justice.
Paul Heyman addressed The Undertaker
Give Paul Heyman credit: When The Undertaker isn't in the building, the advocate for The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar can talk a pretty good game. Without The Phenom himself looming in the ring, the mad scientist had all the room he needed to prophecy the downfall of The Undertaker's fabled Streak at Lesnar's hands, using Lesnar's record against The Deadman's previous WrestleMania opponents as evidence. 'I know it's an uncomfortable thought,' said Heyman, 'But on April 6, The Undertaker and The Undertaker's Streak will rest in peace.'
Bray Wyatt interrupted John Cena
Turns out there is something that puts the mighty John Cena on edge, and that something is Bray Wyatt. With The Eater of Worlds set as his WrestleMania opponent, Cena came clean to the WWE Universe that Wyatt's nihilistic rage makes him uneasy in a way Triple H and The Rock never did. But even as Cena cowed to persevere against Wyatt at The Show of Shows, the man himself appeared on the TitanTron and vowed to expose the Cenation leader for the beast he believes him to be ... even if it means Wyatt has to sacrifice himself to do so.
Sheamus def. Titus O'Neil in a St. Patrick's Day Showdown
Oh come on, like Sheamus wasn't going to win this one. With his home country pride at stake, Sheamus made like St. Patrick and banished the snake-like Titus O'Neil from his domain in a 'St. Patrick's Day Showdown' on Raw. Despite The Big Deal's festive getup (including red goatee and top hat), 'Irish' was not spelled 'T-I-T-U-S.' Nor was 'winner' when The Celtic Warrior used a nearby Hornswoggle as a human projectile to soften the rolling O'Neil up for the Ten Beats of the Bodhran and, finally, a Brogue Kick for the win.
Alas, the Irishman took his eyes off the most persistent snake of them all, and he had only just declared hismelf an entrant in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal when Christian (who also proclaimed himself an entrant in the melee) jumped The Celtic Warrior from behind and dropped him with a Killswitch. Guess Sheamus is gonna need a bigger drum.
The Funkadactyls def. Divas Champion AJ Lee and Tamina Snuka
Not only is Planet Funk whole again, but AJ Lee's groove as Divas Champion may finally have hit its biggest roadblock. With Naomi back from the injured list (with an eye patch!) at Cameron's side, the funkalicious females rallied to take out the Black Widow and her self-appointed muscle in Divas tag team action.
It took some time getting there when AJ and Tamina isolated Cameron and traded in offense against her for minutes on end, wearing her down until she reached Naomi for a last-minute tag. Naomi was as fresh as could be against the champion, powering past Tamina's interference to score the win with a split-legged moonsault off the top rope. AJ was less than happy that Tamina couldn't help her get the win, though Tamina was even less happy at the champ's attitude, shoving AJ to the ground after a heated post-match exchange.
