WWE Monday Night Raw 8/3/15….Lesnar Is Back, And He’s Looking For Taker

In memory of “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, and we see all of the wrestlers up at the ramp.  We get the sad 10 bell salute.

In the very same summer, we lost “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, and now “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.

We get a nice video profile of him.

We are live in San Jose, California.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

Our main event is a 6-man tag match of Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and Randy Orton Vs The Wyatt Family and Sheamus.

But the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins comes out to the ring.

The champ is amused with himself over kicking John Cena’s nose, and breaking it.

There is only one person in WWE that can slow him down, and that person is Seth Rollins.

He has a problem, and it’s been plaguing him, sympathy.  He is too sympathetic for his own good.  If a picture is worth a thousand words, this video is priceless.

We see video again of the broken nose.

Rollins feels John Cena’s  nose crack on his knee.  At first, he didn’t feel bad.  It happens in WWE, it wasn’t the first time he breaks someone’s nose, and it won’t be the last.  But he did break the face that runs this place.

And then he saw the picture of Cena, and we see a picture of Cena’s nose broken.

Then we had to stop the match, and reward Rollins the United States Title, but Cena did not want to stop, and the referee isn’t a humanitarian, like Rollins is, so Seth got caught, and Cena won the match.

He knows Cena is watching at home, licking his wounds.  So how about we do one more match, title for title, winner take all, at the 4 hour Summerslam.

And John, if you aren’t as tough as you think you are, and you don’t have the cojones to fight for the title, like you think you do, he gets rewarded the title.  Either way, Seth holds both titles.

Now San Jose is the place to be, and it’s not because of the fans, it’s because of Seth Rollins.  This is the place where he won his first WWE World Title.  And this is also the place where Cena made his first United States Title open challenge.  So how about we do this one better, a WWE World Title Open Challenge.  So, if you want some, come get some.  Because the champ is here.

Who answers the challenge?  We find out, next.

Jo-Jo is in the ring with Seth Rollins.  This is legitimate, and The Authority agreed to this, as long as this is caveat.  1.  You must be under 6 feet tall, and 2.  You must be under 200 pounds.

Which leaves us to one choice….El Torito.

No, wait….it’s Neville.

Rollins survived the match with a Pedigree, after Neville had Seth pinned from a Red Arrow, but the champ had his foot on the ropes.

Incredible match, a great way to kick the show off.

Tonight, Brock Lesnar is in the house.

8-man tag match is next.

The New Day and The Ascension Vs Los Matadores and Lucha Dragons is now.

New Day and Ascension pick up the win, when Xavier Woods kicks El Torito, and Kofi pins Kalisto with Trouble in Paradise.

Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and Paige are on their way to the ring, next.

Our match is now The Bella Twins Vs Charlotte and Becky Lynch.

Nikki taps out to the Figure Eight, with Charlotte and Becky Lynch, the newly named Submission Sorority.

Team B.A.D. are looking on, and Jo-Jo want to know their thoughts.

They aren’t impressed with Paige, Charlotte, and Becky.  Sasha reminds us that she made Paige tap out last week, and Naomi calls them the baddest women in the planet, not Ronda Rousey.

Naomi challenges Paige to a match later tonight.

We will see Brock Lesnar return, and a 6-man tag match is set too.

But Miz TV is next, with Kevin Owens and Cesaro as his guests.

Miz TV is now.

Miz is telling us there would be no Miz TV if there was no original Piper’s Pit.

From the bottom of his heart, Roddy will be missed.

Welcome to Miz TV.

There is a saying about Miz, and that is he is on fire.  He is on fire in Hollywood, he is a Tough Enough judge, he is about to be in a movie called “Santa’s Little Helper”, and will be the new Intercontinental Champion, when Ryback decides to come back.  He thinks if he is hurt, Ryback needs to do the noble thing, and forfeit the title.

He brings out Kevin Owens.

Miz welcomes Owens, and Kevin tells him he is a big fan of Miz.  He owns every single movie.  Kevin believes he has had issues with Cesaro, because he is jealous of Kevin.  He has accomplished so much since he came into WWE.

And here comes Cesaro.

Cesaro came out to what walk Owens walk has to say.

Owens goes back to saying why he thinks Cesaro is jealous of Owens.  He has succeeded, where Cesaro has failed.

Because of all the weddings, and birthdays he has missed, that goes to waste because Cesaro will never be as good as Owens is in the ring.

Cesaro isn’t jealous of Kevin, he is ashamed of him.  When he walks away, he disrespected himself, his opponent, the fans, and every single superstar that has ever been in this business.

Kevin is just an embarrassment.

Kevin tells Cesaro he has accomplished more in 3 months than Cesaro has in 3 years.

They get into each other’s faces, ready to fight.  Owens tells Cesaro he will fight him anywhere, anytime, but only when the time is right.

Cesaro tells Kevin to walk Owens, walk

Owens rams Miz into Cesaro, and Owens clips Cesaro, but Cesaro catches Owens, and sets him up for the swing, but Owens gets out-of-the-way.

Paige has answered the challenge, will face Naomi.

But next, Rusev Vs Henry.

This past Saturday night, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey beat her UFC opponent in 34 seconds, and dedicated her fight to the late, great “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.

Rusev Vs Henry is now.

Rusev crushed Henry with a kick to the face, in very quick fashion here.

He kicked Henry again.

Summerslam is a 4-hour show this year.

Tonight, 6-man tag match.

Bray Wyatt now interrupts.

Summer has always been a symbol of beauty.  But you remove all the pedals, and what was once promising, all becomes a troublesome leaf and is gone.  Reigns, you were once chosen, and beautiful.  But now, you have become a symbol of everything that is wrong.

Harper says Reigns chose the wrong path, and now will pay for his decision.

Sheamus shows up, and says he will lay Orton out with a vicious Brogue Kick.

Wyatt always was fond of Sheamus, and the enemy of his enemy is his friend.  So tonight, they are friends.

Run!!

King Barrett Vs Zack Ryder is up now.

Barrett wins with Bull Hammer.

Nobody cares.

The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar is next.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman.  And before he subjects us the appearance of the Beast, let Paul remind us it was The Undertaker who picked his fight.

We see footage from Battleground.

We saw the same thing he saw.  That was not the same Undertaker who laid out wrestlers for 25 years.  That was an angry, desperate Taker who kicked his client in the groin.  Why?  Because he has never beat Brock Lesnar, and when that happens, he becomes an angry little bitch, who knows he can’t beat him.

We see this evidence.

The epic fight on Raw 2 weeks ago.

Ladies and gentlemen, The Undertaker will never rest in peace, knowing he cannot, and will not defeat his client, the 1 in what is 22-1, the conquer, ladies and gentlemen….

BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROCK LESNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRR!!!

Brock brings a steel step to the ring, and we entered Suplex City.

The last time WWE sanctioned a match between The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar, Taker lost at Wrestlemania, went to the hospital, spent a week there, and took a year off.

And here is something we don’t know, Undertaker called Vince, and begged Vince a match with Brock at Wrestlemania 31.  And Vince did the right thing to say no, because even the deepest of hearts, he knows Taker can’t beat Brock Lesnar.  But what did Taker do?

He was desperate enough to go to Battleground, and cost Brock’s title shot, and forced WWE to make this match happen.  So in 2 weeks, inside the Barclay Center, it’s the rematch that was too big for Wrestlemania.  And what will happen?  Undertaker, sir, you will be going to Suplex City.

The last time he faced him, he went to the hospital, this time, Taker will finally rest in pieces, because his man will lay you out, he will conquer you and his name is Brock Lesnar.

I am ready, 3 weeks away.

We now see footage of Cena’s broken nose last week on Raw.  Seth Rollins challenged a match to John Cena, title Vs title.  Winner takes all.

6-man tag match still to come.

Paige Vs Naomi is now.

Paige makes Naomi tap out to the PTO.

Submission Sorority have a big night.

Earlier tonight, Neville answered the Rollins WWE World Title challenge, and Seth survived the match.

We hear from Stardust on the official Facebook account.

Stephen Amell will be here on Raw, next Monday.

“Rowdy” Roddy Piper tribute video is next.

Ambrose flies, Orton gives Bray a RKO, and Reigns gives Sheamus a spear to win the match.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A very enjoyable show, from start to finish. WWE is trying to build these big matches. I do get the feeling that Title Vs Title, Winner Takes All is just like what ROH did with Lethal Vs Briscoe.

So the question is what will they do to United States Title?

Great promo with Heyman again, setting up Taker Vs Brock. Do we have one more face-off between the two men?

Another big night for the Diva Revolution, in particular Submission Sorority.

And a fun main event to match, so what did you think of the show? Send them to me here.
