WWE Monday Night Raw 7/13/15…The Battleground Is Set

We kick the show off with video from last week when The Beast was Unleashed against Seth Rollins and his Authority.

Brock Lesnar is here tonight.  Raw is now.

No intro tonight, we are live in Atlanta, Georgia.  We see the broken up $55,000 car that Seth gave his boys.

Here Comes The Pain.

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman.  And I am the advocate for the Cadillac crushing, J & J conquering, badass Avenger who this Sunday night, will make Seth Rollins pay for his sins, Brock Lesnar.

We are 6 days away from history being made again when this beast enters the ring as challenger.  How many times have we seen that opportunity, Brock Lesnar as a challenger.  When he was a rookie, Brock entered this ring as challenger, and dominated Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and became WWE Champion.  When he entered in UFC, Brock entered the ring as challenger to Randy Couture, and he conquered Randy, and walked out as UFC Champion.  And last summer, he walked into this ring as challenger, and we saw what happened to John Cena.  Eat, sleep, conquer, repeat, and he became the new WWE Champion.

And he would still be champion, if that slimy Seth Rollins hadn’t stolen the title from him.  But this Sunday, Brock is going to conquer Seth Rollins.

In 6 days, Seth will be dominated by Brock Lesnar, he will be conquered by Brock Lesnar.  He will be suplexed by Brock Lesnar.  He will be speared by Brock Lesnar.  This Sunday, Brock Lesnar will once again be the reigning, undefeated WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Enter Seth Rollins.

Seth asks Brock if he’s proud of himself, because this Sunday, he can’t wait to beat him.  He gave him a chance to stand up like a man last week, but he chose to go the cowardly way and take advantage of an inanimate object.

Brock takes this car as a symbol, but the WWE World Title is Seth’s symbol.  He will take a trip to Suplex City, he will bring the torch, and he will burn Suplex City to the ground.

Brock has the mic, he can take Rollins to Suplex City tonight, bitch.

Kane, back from his vacation informs us there will be order and tonight, there will be a contract signing.  At Battleground, Seth Rollins Vs Brock Lesnar is what’s best for business.  So Mr. Heyman, things….

Heyman asks if Kane is threatening his client.  So Brock, you are being threatened by The Undertaker’s little brother.

Paul knows he is not supposed to talk about Kane’s family, you know the man that Brock ended his Wrestlemania undefeated streak.

So what can possibly go wrong in an official contract signing?

His client will be in his best behavior, unless Seth does something to disrupt him.  If that happens, Heyman assures Rollins Suplex City comes to Atlanta, Georgia.

Contract signing will be set later tonight.

Tonight, Dean Ambrose Vs Bray Wyatt.  But next, it will be Randy Orton and Ryback vs Sheamus and Big Show.  WWE’s own version of “All-Star” team.

The Miz is doing commentary during this tag match.

Ryback and Orton win when Orton hits a RKo on Sheamus, and Ryback gives us a Top Rope splash.

6 days away from Battleground.  Orton Vs Sheamus is official.

Kane has a plan for later tonight.

Kane and Rollins are bickering again.

Ambrose Vs Wyatt is next.

The match never takes place, Roman Reigns attacks Wyatt and lays him into the post, but the tides were turned and Wyatt used a lantern to nail Reigns, but even that had no effect, when we were erupted into a commercial.

Team Bella are in the ring, with Nikki telling us they run the diva’s division, but here comes Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie reminds them that she runs this division.  The problem is the competition just isn’t there, and there is an evolution in women’s sports.  We have The World Cup, UFC, and Tennis.

But she needs help, so allow her to introduce her to Paige.

Nikki tells us Paige has had many title chances, and failed.  Stephanie tells Nikki that she wants Paige out here, so shut up.

Paige has wanted divas to be on her side, but nobody has stood up, and fight.  So she wants to bring out someone who has fought and clawed her way to get into this business, Becky Lynch.

And she wants to introduce us to someone who was born for this business, someone who was styling and profiling, Charlotte.


But here comes Naomi and Tamina.

They have unfinished business here, and it’s their time to get in the ring with both Paige and Nikki.

Stephanie agrees, says she should come out and want her spot, which is why she is here to introduce another woman.  Someone who calls herself “The Boss”, Sasha Banks.

The current NXT Women’s Champion comes out to align herself with Naomi and Tamina.

Stephanie asks Nikki if this was what she meant when she asked for competition?  She is giving them an opportunity, so who will take it?

All 9 women start to fight.

The NXT Divas all are making a statement with submission moves.

Team Bella are done.

We have a 6-man tag match of The New Day Vs Primetime Players and Mark Henry.

World’s Strongest Slam, Xavier’s night is over.

We see the damage “The Beast” made last week to that Cadillac.

Video from last Monday night again.

Tonight, official contract signing with Lesnar Vs Rollins.

Oh my gawd, we are seeing King Barrett Vs R-Truth, again.

Truth wins again, with Lie Detector.

We see video footage again of Rusev laying out Ziggler last week.

Here comes John Cena Open Challenge.

Cena is ready for 6 days, and he is ready for the Open Challenge.

Rusev answers the challenge, and he is going to break him tonight.

Kevin Owens interrupts, and he tells John if anyone beats Cena for US Title, it will be Owens.  And when he beats him tonight, he will give Cena a rematch at Battleground.

Rusev was here first, and tells Kevin he has 2 first names, so which one is it?

Owens tells Rusev take his Lana wannabe, and stick that flag up his ass, or something like that.

But here comes Cesaro, he wants more too.

We are going to have a Triple Threat now, and the winner faces Cena.

I love that.

Rusev wins the match with a kick to the face, pinning Cesaro.  Middle of the match, Owens walks away.  He tells Cena he will be ready for him this Sunday.

Rusev Vs Cena is set now.

The match ends in a DQ, when Rusev was about to make Cena tap out to Accolade, Owens comes out and hits a Pop-Up Powerbomb on Rusev, telling Cena nobody will beat him for the title, except him.

In 6 days, Owens Vs Cena, for the US Title.

Seth Rollins asks Kane if the plan is set, he told him it is.  Rollins tells Kane it better work.

Here is the return of Lita.  She introduces us to the cast of the new WWE Tough Enough cast.

We hear from Stardust, he returns and faces Neville, next.

At the Battleground Kick-Off show, it will be Barrett Vs R-Truth in a Battle of the Crown match.

Neville Vs Stardust, now.

Stardust wins with the rolling up tights.  The fans were chanting for Cody, not Stardust.  That’s who we want to see.

Contract signing is next.

Rollins and Lesnar are coming out now.

Seth is sick and tired of seeing the footage of Brock destroying the gift he gave J & J Security, so he wants to see Rollins and The Authority lay out Lesnar, which we see now.

Seth is here to give us his word, he is not afraid of Brock Lesnar.  This Sunday at Battleground, he will conquer the conqueror again.  He will defeat the one in 21-1 again, and he will be the one to burn Suplex City in ashes.

He will still be the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Here comes Lesnar, with purpose.

Heyman tells Rollins he wouldn’t take his eyes off “The Beast” Brock Lesnar.  Ever since Rollins destroyed his brothers in The Shield, Heyman always wanted to see someone get their hands on Rollins.  Ever since Rollins have dubbed himself as “The Future of WWE”, the fans have wanted to see someone get their hands on Rollins.  And ever since he cashed in Money in the Bank briefcase at Wrestlemania, and he stole the WWE World Title from his client, Brock wanted to get his hands on Rollins.

6 days from now, everyone wants to see Brock get their hands on Rollins, because this Sunday, Rollins will get his ass kicked.  He will get hurt, he will get slapped, he will get punched, he will get Suplexed, he will get F-5, he will get pinned, he will be dethroned.  Seth Rollins is going to Suplex City.

And he will get conquered by one man, one beast, the real future of WWE, Brock Lesnar.

Rollins signs the contract, and when Brock signs his contract, Rollins tries to grab an ace handler, but Heyman sees it.

Rollins denies it, but Brock kicks the table down, finds it and puts it back on the table, daring them to use it.

Rollins grabs it, but Brock flips the table on him.  Kane helps Seth out though, by taking out Brock.  But The Beast turns the tide, gives Kane a F-5, and when he goes after Rollins, Seth runs away, and Brock now takes the steel step, and nails it with Kane’s foot, breaking his ankle.

Rollins comes back, irate at this.

From day one, Brock believed he could run through everyone.  He ran through John Cena, The Undertaker, Roman Reigns, but he didn’t run through Seth Rollins.  Seth is better than Brock, and he is just a man.  He will show everyone he is just a man with a pule.  He will skin off that tattoo, and become the man who sleighs the beast.

So this was Kane’s plan?  To get rid of Lesnar?  How did that work out for him?  Like Kane’s entire career, a big disappointment.  Rollins told Kane that if this doesn’t work out, he would be nothing.  How is that working out?  Well, this is all on Kane.

Rollins stomps on his ankle, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a strong build to Battleground tonight, especially the ending.  But I can’t see how they would turn Rollins a babyface at the end of this.  Especially after seeing Rollins take out Kane’s ankle too, so we will see.

Everything else was good too, we finally had someone face off against the Bellas.  The WWE debut of Sasha Banks, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch.

We are also down to the stretch run of Cena Vs Owens, and saw a tremendous Triple Threat match to get to Cena, which I loved to see.  Again, they are making the US Title feel important.  Perhaps they can do the same thing with the IC Title?

A very good show tonight, and I am looking forward to seeing Battleground now.

Share me your thoughts?  Do you trust Vince to truly push the new WWE Divas in the right direction?
