WWE Monday Night Raw 1/19/15….Raw Reunion

Tonight, we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr.  Always dream to strive for the best.

We are 6 days away from Royal Rumble.  We get an awesome video for Martin Luther King, Jr and now we get the Raw intro that we should get every week.

“Tonight is the night”.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Booker T welcome us to the show to a sold-out arena in D-Town, Dallas.

It’s a Raw Reunion.

Here Comes The Pain!!

Brock is fuming, with Heyman trying to settle him down.

Brock takes the mic from Heyman and says he is here to fight, wants Seth Rollins in the ring.

When Lesnar shows up, it’s business time, baby.  He has 10 seconds to get his weasel ass out here.

No Rollins.

When Brock shows up, Rollins is nowhere to be found.

On Your Knees, Punk.

Here comes HHH, and he isn’t smiling.

HHH is trying to settle everyone down.  He knows Brock is upset, and he understands.  Seth embarrassed Brock, hit a Curbstomp.  But honestly, wouldn’t Brock do the same thing?  After all, he suplexed Seth first.  How about they all calm down, get Brock a nice, juicy steak while HHH and Heyman discuss things like businessmen.

Brock asks HHH if he is here to fix this, or is he here to fight?

Here comes Stephanie, wanting prevailing heads to calm down.  This is not what Brock wants to do here.

Let’s just think about this.

Stephanie is just trying to help Brock listen.

Rollins is on the Titantron.

Brock is always just 2 steps behind, right?  He wants to get his hands on him?  Just be patient, because he will get his chance in 6 days, before Rollins takes his WWE World Title.

Heyman says this is a conversation between the adults, train your puppy.  Either Brock fixes this, or The Authority fixes this, because either way, it will be fixed.  And here is a spoiler alert, after the Title match, the winner, and still reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion…

Here comes John Cena.

This Sunday, the three men will settle this.  He wants to talk to The Authority.

A few months ago, they asked Cena to join The Authority, and he said hell no.  So they did anything they can to get rid of Cena.

But he wants them to keep it up, because he will make sure everything they do and say lights a fire underneath Cena and this Sunday, he will take care of the mercenary, and the lackey, and say The Champ Is Here.

But these two don’t even have fire anymore, he would do anything to get those three men back.  They are just a pile of ashes.  Dallas, Texas, these aren’t The Authority, they are ashholes.

Stephanie wants to tell more jokes here.  They want to savior this moment, because this is a turning point with John Cena.  John used to be motivated, he used to defy all odds, and find ways to win, but this isn’t John Cena anymore.  The truth is The Authority are here, because of Cena.

Cena is responsible for the three men that lost his job, nobody wants to see Cena win, they don’t want to see him win at the Rumble, he isn’t the man he used to be.

Rollins calls Cena a loser.  Last week, he failed at getting his friends’ jobs back, but he failed.  Just like he will fail at this Sunday.  One thing he and Brock should agree on is Cena’s time is up.  Just tuck his head underneath his legs, and leave.

Cena said this is not about money, this is not about the title, this is about respect.  And when Cena wins the title, he gets the respect back.  How about they sweeten their pot, when Cena wins, how about they give those three men their jobs back.

HHH reminds Cena that he failed at getting their jobs back, but if you truly want this opportunity, you have to put something up too.

Cena has a match tonight, and if he wins, they get their jobs back.  If he loses, he does not get a WWE World Title shot at Royal Rumble.

Stephanie asks if he wants them to have their jobs back, or does he truly not care?

HHH proposes people vote on WWE App, to see if Cena should wrestle, with the 3 jobs on the line.

Is this a simple yes, or no.  What does the fans truly think of John Cena.

They are showing us how to download the WWE App.

Next, Daniel Bryan Vs Bray Wyatt.

We come back in mid-entrance form with Bray Wyatt, enter Daniel Bryan and we have our match.

With some help from Kane, Bray Wyatt picks up the win with Sister Abigail.  This took 3 segments, and a fun match, to boot.

Now Kane gives Daniel a Chokeslam, and starts to pound on him.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, Daniel faces Kane.  If Daniel loses, he is done from the Royal Rumble.

Fans will get to vote if Cena should fight for Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback’s jobs tonight.

Also a Legends Panel tonight, with Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and Shawn Michaels.

We are at the American Airlines, in Dallas.  Should John Cena risk his title match for opportunity to get the three men’s jobs back.

HHH is on the phone, when Scott Hall and Kevin Nash are there to greet him.

Shawn Michaels comes in, and all three men want the suit to be gone.  It’s not a Kliq routine, without X-Pac.  We see X-Miz here, with the real X-Pac shows up.

The Miz interrupts the fun, but walks away.

Legends Panel is next.

Earlier tonight, we see HHH put everything on the line with Cena tonight.  Should he risk his WWE Title chance with trying to get the three men’s job back?

Voting starts now.

Byron Saxton is here to introduce the Legends Panel.

Hogan, Shawn, and Flair all come out.

Byron wants their thoughts on whether John Cena should put his WWE World Title on the line to get the three men’s jobs back?

Shawn thinks yes.  Flair disagrees.  Hogan thinks he should.

Switching gears to the Royal Rumble match itself.  Flair won the 1992 Royal Rumble, he said it was the greatest moment of his career.

It still is for Flair, to enter the Rumble at number 3, and to win the World Title.  And to have guys like HBK, Hogan, The Undertaker, and the newest inductee to the Hall of Fame, “Macho Man”, it is an honor to win the Royal Rumble.

Byron asks Shawn what it was like to win the 1995 Royal Rumble, with the way he did it.

Shawn said it is the definition of the future.  To win the Rumble, you know you’re in the main event of Wrestlemania.  Dare he say, without Royal Rumble, there would be no Mr. Wrestlemania.

Byron wants Hogan’s take on winning the Rumble.

Hogan talks about the competition of the men in the ring.  You never knew who was coming in after you.

There have only been 22 men to win the Royal Rumble in history.  Who is your pick to win?

Shawn is going with Bray Wyatt.

Hogan tells Shawn he isn’t going to win.

Shawn is tired of Hogan pushing him, he wants Hogan again, at Summerslam.

Okay, not really.

Hogan’s choice is Daniel Bryan, Jack.

Flair is going with Dean Ambrose.

Here comes The Big Show.

Show brings up we have 3 Hall of Famers, 3 legends.  He doesn’t see legends, with the crowd chanting he sold out.

Hogan brings up maybe these people don’t want him out there.

Show told them this isn’t Hogan’s time anymore.  They didn’t pick him, because they were all jealous.  Big Show reminds Hogan he beat him for the WCW World Title his first night in the business.

And how about Flair?  He was wheeling and dealing, jet-flying, but when Flair put Show in the Figure Four, he spun him around, and took his spot.  And Shawn, he faded out of the spotlight when Show came into the company.  And now these washed-up has-beens are begging for attention.

Big Show is going to win the Royal Rumble, because there isn’t anyone that can throw him over the top rope.  So Big Show is going to ask kindly they all leave the ring, go back to the old folks home, and go back where you belong.

Flair takes off his jacket, his two rings, and starts to chop Big Show, but Big Show chops him down.

Emter Roman Reigns.

Big Show warns Reigns something bad will happen, so get out of his ring.

Reigns fights back, and Show tries a Chokeslam, but Reigns throws him out of the ring.

This is the best way you push Reigns, just have him kick ass.

Flair is being tended by officials, with Big Show’s actions.  He might have broken his jaw.

Switching gears, John Cena has a big task ahead of him.

Renee Young is with John Cena.

The results from the WWE App poll is 85% in favor of Cena fighting for the jobs tonight.

Does Cena think the fans have turned against Cena, thinking he can’t win tonight.

Cena loves the challenge.  He has been loved, he has been hated, but the one thing he loves is the WWE Universe, and they have spoken.  He wants to fight, he wants that chance.  Because moments like this make you a champion, and The Champ is here.

Our next match is Bad News Barrett Vs Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose wins the match with Dirty Deeds.

The IC Champion lost again.

John Cena’s WWE World Title shot hangs in the balance tonight.  Who will Cena face tonight?  We will find out.

The Dallas Cowboys are in the house, showing everyone what it’s like to finish in third place.

The Road to Wrestlemania has begun, we can all watch it on WWE Network, this Sunday.

Royal Rumble inside the numbers video is playing now.

The New Day are facing the team of Tyson Kidd and Cesaro.

The New Day picks up the win.  Tonight, Cena will have a chance to get Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback their jobs back.  But who will Cena face?

NWO Wolfpack reunion is up, next.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, Daniel Bryan Vs Kane is a No DQ match.

NWO Wolfpack in da house!!

Hey Yo!!  Scott wants to do a survey.  Are you here to see Raw Reunion?  Or are you here to see NWO?

Nash brings up the three men single-handedly changed the landscape of this business.  They helped raise the bar with WWE.  We have “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.  DX, The entire WWE Attitude Era, they have formed that legacy.

And before X-Pac could say much, here comes The Ascension.

Viktor sees nothing but 3 old dogs, wanting to be put into their misery, and they were born to do it.  No tag team is better than The Ascension.  Past or present, and surely not a team from WCW.

The fans are chanting for NWO.

Hall throws a toothpick at Conor, and here comes JBL.

They have the audacity to come out in front of these legends that have paved the business.  He had a feeling they would be coming out, so he called on a legend to help make a statement.

JBL takes off his shirt, to reveal APA Security is in business.


Oh You Didn’t Know….

The New Age Outlaws come out.

Now wait just a Dallas Cowboy moment.  It seems like you gentlemen want to throw a party without the Outlaws.  It ain’t a party like the old school party, because the party doesn’t stop.

So far, it seems this party consists of thoroughbreds and racehorses.  So who invited the jackasses?

Kick ass has commended.

And it ends with a Clothesline from Hell by JBL.

The Ascension is done.

The Authority are here to tell us who John Cena will face?  Cena will face….

Seth Rollins, The Big Show, and Kane.

3-on-1 Handicap match, firing the drummer boy.

Stephanie and HHH will be at ringside to witness the self-destruction.

The Bella Twins are at commentary, and we will see Summer Rae and Alicia Fox against Paige and Natalya.

At Royal Rumble, we will see Paige and Natalya Vs The Bella Twins.

Nattie and Paige win with a Scorpion Crosslock.  Awesome finisher.

Tonight, John Cena faces Rollins, Kane, and Big Show in a 3-on-1 Handicap match.  If he win, Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan all get their jobs back.  If he loses, the WWE World Title match is done.

The Royal Rumble Kick-Off match this Sunday is The New Day Vs Cesaro, Kidd, and Rose in an Elimination Match.

Now, R-Truth is about to be killed by Rusev.

Yup, Truth tried but The Accolade is hit, and match is over.

John Cena tonight will face Seth Rollins, Big Show, and Kane.

Rollins is talking with J & J Security, wanting everyone to see what kind of failure John Cena is.

Lesnar goes face to face with Rollins.  He is a prize-fighter, he will wait for Sunday to take Rollins out.  He just hopes Seth does his job tonight, and take out Cena.  THEN, Brock can take Rollins out this Sunday.

I think Seth just shit in his pants.

Jey Uso will go one on one with The Miz tonight.

At Royal Rumble, The Miz and Mizdow face The Uso’s.

Jey picks up the win with a splash.

Moving on.

WWE asked Hulk Hogan on WWE App for his thoughts on John’s chances tonight.  He has nothing to lose, brother.

Except a World Title chance, but I get what he’s saying.

Our main event, Cena Vs 3 men, next.

Oh lord, New Age Outlaws face The Ascension at Royal Rumble.

Rollins, Kane, and Big Show Vs Cena is up now.

Cena wins the match, when “The Vigilante” Sting makes an appearance, shows up on ramp.  And points to HHH.

Cena rolls up Rollins, and wins the match.

HHH screams out for Sting.

Here Comes The Pain!!

Lesnar absolutely destroys everyone, lays a F-5 on Big Show, and the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I have to admit, the idea of Sting Vs HHH at Wrestlemania gives me goosebumps.  The crowd reaction to Sting was just amazing, even if this means Cena wins again.

And then the ending was just incredible….Brock Lesnar comes in, and does what he does to kick ass.

This is what we will all remember about tonight.  The rest of the show filled its purpose, but seeing the ending was gold.

What did you think of the show?  Send me your thoughts.  Who is your choice to win Royal Rumble?  Who wins WWE World Title match?

Dare they even put Rumble match on, last?  Or is the PPV really the title match?

Regardless, the Road to Wrestlemania has begun, here we go.
