WWE Monday Night Raw 8/17/15…Summerslam Week

We are live in Minneapolis, Minnesota, we see Stephanie McMahon and HHH, The Authority kick the show off.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Monday Night Raw.  Tonight feels like Christmas morning, before you open the gifts.  Because we are 6 days away from Summerslam, the biggest party of the summer.

And we get a bit of a shill, we get it.  WWE Network is just $9.99 a month.

Careers will be defined, scores will be settled, and history will be made.

We begin the card with the biggest rematch, even bigger than Wrestlemania.  The Undertaker Vs “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar.

And tonight, both Brock and Taker will be in the same ring.

And of course, Title Vs Title, Winner take all, John Cena Vs Seth Rollins.

Tonight, we get a contract signing between Cena and Rollins.

Also at Summerslam, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns takes on Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper.

We get to see Luke Harper tonight face Roman Reigns.

We see the Three-Team Divas Elimination Match, at Summerslam.

Tonight, Nikki Bella will face “The Boss” Sasha Banks.

Summerslam will be 4 hours, 9 matches, available on WWE Network.

Stephanie informs us John Stewart is the host of Summerslam.

The Road to Summerslam starts right now.

It’s Orton and Cesaro Vs Owens and Sheamus, now.

Orton and Cesaro win when Orton hits a RKO, and pins Sheamus.

16 months in the making, at Summerslam it will be Lesnar Vs Undertaker.

They will be in the same building tonight.  We see what happened at Battleground, when “The Deadman” came back to cost Lesnar his WWE World Title match.

The next night on Raw, we see that wicked brawl the two men had on Raw.

We hear from The Deadman, next.

We see smoke, we hear the druids and hear Undertaker’s voice.

When the reaper calls your name, there is no remorse.  When the reaper calls your name, it’s over.  Lesnar, your name is called.  And at Summerslam, you will never rest in peace.

This Sunday, Summerslam starts an hour early, at 7:00 PM Eastern, featured on WWE Network.

At Summerslam, we will have Champion Vs Champion, Seth Rollins Vs John Cena.

We see footage from last month, when Rollins kicked Cena, and broke John’s nose.

We will have a contract signing, tonight.

Rollins is with The Authority.  The only thing Cena hasn’t done is look him in the face, and accept the challenge of Title Vs Title.

Rollins has one more favor, after he defeats Cena at Summerslam, he feels like he deserves a spot of statue of legends at WWE headquarters.

They tell him that if he brings back both championships, consider it done.

Dean Ambrose is heading to the ring.

Reigns Vs Harper is up now.

Reigns wins with a spear, a good match between these two.  Ambrose and Reigns are ready for this Sunday.

Bray Wyatt checks on his brother, lights go out, and he says to follow the buzzards.

John Stewart will be the host of Summerslam.

Tamina is in the ring, scheduled to face Becky Lynch, one on one.

Becky wins with The Disarmer, making Tamina tap out.

Later tonight, Sasha Banks Vs Nikki Bella.

Also tonight, contract singing between John Cena and Seth Rollins.  And tonight, it’s Brock Lesnar’s Homecoming.

Lana is doing commentary, and we will see another Rusev Vs Mark Henry match.

Mark tried, but a second Accolade did him in.

The Bulgarian flag pops out, with Rusev’s face.

Lana heads to the ring, wanting to fight Summer Rae.

The heels come off, and they are ready.

Lana slaps Summer’s face, and orders Rusev to come inside the ring.

Ziggler chants, and here he comes.

Ziggler executes DDT, and almost kicks Summer Rae, as Rusev hides behind her, but Lana kicks Summer, and Ziggler kicks Rusev.

Now that was awesome.

Now they make out, and Rusev is furious.  He’s still not over her.

Tonight, official contract signing between Cena and Rollins.

Moments ago, we see the slap that shocked the world, and the return of Ziggy.

Ziggler and Lana are confronted by Jo-Jo.

That reaction was awesome, which is why the job is the best of the world.  Ziggler wants Rusev one on one, at Summerslam.

Ziggler is back, it’s too bad they are just too good.

Video now showing The Undertaker Vs Brock Lesnar.

Brock Lesnar’s homecoming is tonight.

Feed Me More!!

“The Big Guy” is ready.

Well, it’s supposed to be Ryback Vs The Miz.

Big Show joins commentary, but Miz is not impressed by Big Show going to Hollywood.  This Sunday, we will see a star, front and center, winning the Intercontinental Championship.  Now he wants us to shut up while he takes off his sunglasses.

Ryback handled Miz, with ease.  Shellshock.

This weekend, Triple Threat match, but right now Ryback wants Big Show in the ring.

But Big Show is not interested, and he walks away.

Up next, official contract singing between Cena and Rollins.

HHH and Stephanie are here to officiate the contract signing, so here comes Rollins and Cena.

Seth is feeling their love for the warm introduction.  But before they start that, he wants to congratulate Steph and HHH for what will go down as the greatest Summerslam of all time.

And he wants to congratulate himself for having that statue of himself after he beats Cena at Summerslam.

But he wants to congratulate the fans, give yourselves a good hand.  It’s not often you know you will see a historic event.  It’s not like you go to a baseball game, knowing you will see a no-hitter, unless you live in Minnesota.

But I digress, he will defeat Cena, and become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and United States Champion at the same time.

The fans give us a Let’s Go Cena, and Cena Sucks.  Seth brings up a fellow person from Minnesota, with Bob Dylan singing a song “The Time has come for a change”.

And that is very fitting, because for the last decade, Cena has been at the top of the mountain, and he loves playing the role of “Superman”, making sure nobody takes him off the top.

John Cena is a disease, and with one kick, he sent his face down to shattered pieces.  He is going to inject the serum that will free us of John Cena, because he is a disease, and Seth Rollins is the cure.

So Cena continues to disrespect Rollins’ title reign, well John, Seth will take him out at Summerslam.  Cena is too much of a coward that he couldn’t answer to Rollins’ challenge?  He had to go to Tough Enough, thousands of miles away from Rollins.

And here comes Cena.

Rollins is trying to defend his title, when half the arena is chanting let’s go Cena, the other half is chanting Cena sucks, and the fans don’t give a damn about Seth Rollins.

Sad thing is The Champ is there, and he’s doing a cheap imitation of John Cena.

It’s time you do something, HHH hand-picked Rollins to be the future of the WWE, and it’s time he does something about it.  HHH is The Cerebral Assassin, he doesn’t do that, unless he truly believes in you.  He gave you everything you need, including The Pedigree.  But you will realize something he has known the last decade, The real champ is here, and he ain’t going anywhere.

Rollins talks about the knee that took out Cena?  The Authority and doctors had told him not to show up last week, so it gave him an extra week to think what he’s going to do.  Payback, he is a 15-time World Champion.  So he will defeat “Captain Morgan” this Sunday, and become a 16-time World Heavyweight Champion.  HHH knows about this, because the record is held by his mentor, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair.

The issue here though is this, HHH was never Ric Flair’s bitch.  This Sunday, Cena will make Seth his.

Cena signs, and walks off.

No comeback at all, wow.

This Sunday, Title Vs Title, winner take all.  Cena Vs Rollins.

Banks Vs Nikki Bella is tonight.

8-man tag match featuring New Day and Los Matadores Vs Prime Time Players and Lucha Dragons.

Dragons and PTP win, moving on.

Earlier tonight, the return of Dolph Ziggler.

It’s official, Ziggler Vs Rusev, now giving us 10 matches.

Also at Summerslam, Stephen Amell and Neville Vs Stardust and King Barrett.

Some amazing artwork that has shown us the Amell and Neville Vs Barrett and Stardust match.

Now a creepy promo from Stardust and King Barrett.

Nikki Bella Vs Sasha Banks is now.

Sasha makes Nikki tap out to The Bank Statement.  The biggest win of her career.

Team PCB is standing by with Renee Young, who makes her only appearance of the night.

They will take care of business this Sunday night and be the last team standing.

And they will do it with a little Flair….WOOOOOOO

Footage from Wrestlemania 30, Brock beat The Streak.

Brock Lesnar’s homecoming is next.

This Saturday night, NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn is at 9:00.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman, and he is the host for tonight’s homecoming.  Because he is the advocate to the only being in history to ever defeat The Streak, the one who defeated the biggest Hollywood superstar to become the undisputed WWE World Champion.  The one who defeated the most decorated UFC fighter to be the Heavyweight Champion.  And the one who held the NCAA World Heavyweight Championship, representing the University of Minnesota, Brock Lesnar.

A hero coming home.

Suplex City chants.

Heyman is singing to Lesnar, about Taker, “The Conqueror Marches On”.

Gong, Gong.

The lights go out, comes back, but no Taker.

It’s all a ruse.

Suplex City chants.

That’s the best you got, jedi mind tricks?  Look at this Obi-Wan.  This Sunday at Summerslam, you can get God and the devil to team up, and he swears to you, his client will take all three to Suplex City.

Brock, ever since the ref counted to three, he has dreamt about taking revenge at his client, Brock Lesnar.  And then at Battleground, when he came to get his revenge, he gave Brock a low blow.

The reason?  The moment Undertaker locked eyes with Brock he knew he couldn’t go from conquered to conqueror.  Undertaker has never beaten Brock Lesnar, and that will continue after Summerslam.

Undertaker fears Brock.  Now, his client isn’t taking Undertaker lightly.  The shape The Undertaker was in when he took Brock to fight, Heyman knows any man, Taker can put them in a Tombstone Piledriver, but he’s not fighting a man, he is fighting a beast.

This Sunday night at Summerslam, his client does not respect his accomplishments.  He won’t recognize his World Title reigns, or the historic dominance Undertaker has had, because this Sunday….


The lights come back on, and it’s Undertaker in the ring, giving Brock a low blow, and a Chokeslam.

Tombstone Piledriver!!

Undertaker standing over Brock, and just stares at Heyman.

Crowd is booing Taker, because this is Brock’s hometown.

Taker bows down, The Phenom sees revenge.

The show ends with Taker on the top ramp.  We are ready for this Sunday.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A strong show tonight that makes Summerslam look important.  I wish WWE would make their Raw’s feel special like this one.

This is indeed a big week for WWE, we have NXT Takeover this Saturday night, and Summerslam Sunday night.  No mention of the Kick-Off show, but I am sure they will start things off at 6:30, maybe even at 6:00.

What were your thoughts of the show?  Send them to me.
