WWE Monday Night Raw 6/8/15…New Orleans Bash

Tonight, we are in Bourbon Street, home of Wrestlemania 30.  6 days away from Money in the Bank.

United States Champion John Cena kick off the show.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Sexton welcome us to the show.

6 days away, Champion Vs Champion rematch.  John Cena Vs Kevin Owens.

The Champ Is Here, but Kevin Owens isn’t here.

7 superstars this Sunday compete to get it all hang out.  Not for a championship, but for an opportunity.  And this Sunday, 2 champions compete in this ring, and let it all hang out.  Not for a championship, but for an opportunity.

Kevin Owens had an incredible debut, and he thinks Cena is full of crap.  This Sunday, Owens thinks Cena’s time is up, and Owen’s time is now.

But John is just getting started.  Cena fights for us, even the ones that chant he sucks.

Not much of a reaction here.

But whether we make a remix of his theme music, or degrade his slogans, we all know there is no safer bet than Cena winning.  There was a buzz 8 days ago when Owens won.  But this Sunday, we will be reminded Cena is the one who runs this place, and is the standard-bearer.

Here comes Kevin Owens.

Now, The Champ Is Here.

Cena truly is delusional, if he thinks Cena will beat Owens this Sunday.  And he is delusional if he thinks people want to see Cena come out at the beginning of Raw, and challenge people for the US Title.  And Cena has done this for the last 10 years, they are sick of it.

So how about we give these people a NXT Open Challenge.

That is a hell of an idea Cena said, he accepts.

Again, Cena is being delusional.  Because the two of them are going to fight this Sunday, so they can’t fight tonight.

When Cena holds this US Title, it represents an opportunity for anyone, and the way he sees it, John Cena is still the one to beat.  So his time is now.  If you want some, come get some.

Owens will ignore that, and issues a challenge of any superstar who walks down the ramp choose what title they want.

It’s Neville.

Neville would love to fight Cena again, one day.  But ever since Owens has won the NXT Title, he has disrespected the fans, and the wrestlers.  So as a proud former NXT Champion, he is here to beat Kevin Owens for the NXT Championship.

That match is next.

What a great match that ends with Owens hitting a Pop-Up Powerbomb, with Cena watching commentary.

Owens invites Cena into the ring, to which Cena slides into the ring.  But Owens leaves, ready for Sunday.

Also this Sunday, Seth Rollins Vs Dean Ambrose in a Ladder match.

We see what happened at Elimination Chamber.

The Authority are in their office, when Seth Rollins approaches them.  He meant what he said last week about J & J Security and Kane, but he has the utmost respect for Steph and HHH.

He was right though, he can win without them.  But they will be there this Sunday, right?  Yes, but they won’t help him win.  They will even let Rollins choose his opponent later tonight.

I am so sick of this storyline.

Segment from last week with The Bellas.

We see what Paige had to say last week on Smackdown, saying she will do something about changing the world they live in.

Nikki Bella tell us that they give anyone an equal opportunity, just like Nikki will face Summer Rae tonight, and Paige gets her rematch at Money in the Bank.  This is really The Bella’s World, and they allow Paige to live in it.

Nikki Vs Summer Rae, next.

Nikki wins with ease, Rack Attack.

Next.

We see Roman Reigns gauntlet he went through last week, defeating King Barrett, Mark Henry, and Bray Wyatt.

Roman Reigns is up next.

We have ladders surrounding the ring now, with the briefcase at the top.

Enter Roman Reigns.

There was a time when Reigns hated the briefcase.  He hated the contract and everything it stood for.  But then again, it doesn’t look as bad when the biggest jackass of the world doesn’t have it, like Seth Rollins.

Reigns will climb up, and he will grab the briefcase.  And there will be a time when he hashes it out with the man who is winning the WWE World Title this Sunday, Dean Ambrose.

Kane comes out, and he sees things a bit differently,

The Authority put Kane in this match to make sure the future is protected, and this Sunday he will win the Money in the Bank Ladder match.

Reigns wants Kane in the ring.

But Dolph Ziggler has something to say about it.

Ziggler says Kane doesn’t do anything without The Authority telling him to do it.  In fact, Kane is the biggest tool in WWE.  But Ziggler is on a roll.  He has a comedy show to do, he has a smoking hot Russian and this Sunday, he will do what he does best, and will steal the show.

Kane tells them that even the most simple tool can inflict damage and watch what they say, because he still has the power.

Here comes R-Truth.

New Orleans, what’s up?

Truth is cured of his ladder phobia, and is ready for Sunday’s match.

But Kane tells Truth he’s not even in the match.

Are you sure?

Quite sure.

My bad, bye New Orleans.

Poor R-Truth.

Now as Kane was saying….

Here comes New Day.

As Big E. tells us when Kofi wins, we all win.

New Day rocks!!

Enough….as Kane was saying.

Enter Sheamus.

He is just a Brogue Kick away from a chance to win the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

Okay is everyone finished?

As we all know, there are 2 more spots open.  Neville, who competed earlier, and this man…

Randy Orton.

It’s Orton Vs Sheamus, next.

Sheamus wins by DQ when Orton attacks him with a chair, flings him on the announce table, then hits a RKO in the ring.

6 days away from Money in the Bank.  Who wins the ladder match?

Joey and Jamie approach Rollins, saying they forgive him for what they said last week, and tonight.

Rollins told them they would be nothing if Seth wasn’t here getting them a job.  Jamie tells him he wouldn’t even be WWE Champion if it wasn’t for them, and they are The Shield 2.0, better than Reigns and Ambrose.

Rollins informs them The Authority told him he chooses his opponents, and he choose them in a 2-on-1 Handicap match.

Seth slaps Jamie, but Jamie slaps right back.

Joey tells them they protected him, but tonight, they will kick his ass.

Go Joey.

Ziggler Vs Kane, now.

Kane wins a pointless match with a Chokeslam, after Rusev comes out to confront Lana.  He bullied her to the fact she falls off the ramp, and trips on her heels.

Kane wins.

Dolph checks on Lana, and we switch gears to show more Instagram footage from Dean Ambrose.

J & J Security are preparing for their match.

Miz TV, with Ryback and Big Show is next.

Lana is being tended to backstage.

Miz TV is now.

Miz should be standing here as our new Intercontinental Champion, but this happened.

Big Show came out, and knocked out The Miz.

His lawyers are contemplating a lawsuit against Big Show, and maybe even Ryback because Ryback probably put Show into doing it, not wanting to face Miz.

Feed Me More!!

The only guy who was being robbed was The Big Guy, because he was robbed out of giving The Miz a meathook.

Miz was a former WWE Champion.

Ryback is tired of hearing Miz’s resume, he is a former WWE Champion.  He main evented Wrestlemania.  He is an A-Lister Hollywood actor.  But his former stunt double, Damien Mizdow outperformed him every single night.

Now they bicker a bit.

Miz told Ryback he should be upset at Big Show.  He ruined a chance Ryback had at defeating a big star, defending his IC Title.  Should that upset him?

Here comes Big Show.

Big Show makes this clear, out of all of his tag team partners, Big Show hated Miz right away.

Ryback isn’t buying any of this, he is the one guy not afraid of Big Show.  If he wants his Intercontinental Championship, it’s right here.

Ryback can’t stop Show, because he is a true giant.  Nobody can defeat Ryback for the IC Title, because Big Show wants it.

Miz tries to interfere, but Show handles him again, and Ryback gives Big Show Shellshock.

Earlier tonight, Rollins made the match of him against J & J Security.

Our next match is El Matadores Vs Harper and Rowan.

Harper and Rowan win, and Harper takes the mic.

Tick Tock…Tick Tock…Tick Tock.

The time to pay for your sins is coming.  The judgment waiting for you is at the door.

It’s okay to be scared, they all should be.

Kane is here to wish Rollins luck on his match tonight.  Rollins does not need luck against Mercury and Noble.

Kane warns Rollins that he could win his title match, and Kane cashes in his MITB briefcase.  Or Ambrose beats him, and he would be a fraud and Kane becomes WWE World Champion against Ambrose.

Rollins won’t need anyone’s help tonight, or Sunday night.  He hopes that Ambrose will be come tonight, so he could show him what he will do to him Sunday night.  He doesn’t need Kane to meddle around.

Kane informs him that he will be in J & J Security’s corner tonight.

A movie preview to “Ted 2”.

Big E. from New Day Vs Titus O’ Neil, from Prime Time Players.

Big E wins with a Big Ending, and an assist from Xavier Woods.

Here comes Roman Reigns.

Reigns Vs Kofi is next.

Reigns picks up the win, and here comes Dean Ambrose, who has a ticket for tonight’s main event.

Our main event is now.  J & J Security Vs Rollins is now.

J & J Security defeated Rollins when Ambrose distracted Seth a bit, giving him the WWE World Title before Rollins hits a Pedigree.  Mercury rolls up Rollins for the win, and Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds.  He takes the title, and shows us how to climb up a ladder for the win, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This might have been one of the worst and boring Raw of the year.  Other than the first half hour, with Owens, Cena, and Neville, which completely rocked, everything else fell apart.

The worst thing was having 2 people booked as complete fools pin the WWE World Champion, who more than likely will beat Dean Ambrose this Sunday.  So it didn’t help either man in the main event of your next PPV.

Just complete garbage tonight, do you agree?  Disagree?  Send me your thoughts here.
