WWE Monday Night Raw 10/19/15…The Road To Hell

Tonight, Raw is in D-Town, the home city of Wrestlemania 32.  So will the build begin?  A star-studded show tonight, including the return of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, who hasn’t been on Raw in 4 years.

Raw is now.

We are live in Dallas, and the glass breaks to kick the show off.

It’s indeed “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.

Austin started his career in 1989, back in the Sportatortum in Dallas, Texas.  When they built AllState Arena, they brought in The Rock and Austin to welcome the place.

If you’re ready for Raw, give me a Hell Yeah.  If you’re ready for Wrestlemania, give me a Hell Yeah.

After tonight’s Raw, stay tuned for his podcast on The WWE Network, with his guest being “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar.

But now, he is going to introduce a man he highly respects in the ring.  A man who does what he says, and this Sunday will meet Brock Lesnar for the final time, The Undertaker.

Brock Lesnar, we have one last battle to fight.  And listen when he says this son, the depths of hell will look like the gates to heaven compared to where he will take Brock this Sunday, at Hell in a Cell.


Ladies and Deadman, my name is Paul Heyman.  And I am the advocate of the beast who shall be unleashed this Sunday, inside Hell in a Cell….BROCK LESNAR!!

My client and I were just talking how fitting this is.  Both men enter Hell in a Cell consumed with revenge.  His client, Brock Lesnar wants to avenge that tainted, disgusting loss he suffered at the hands of The Undertaker.

But Taker doesn’t want to just avenge, he lusts for Brock, because he can’t get over his client defeated him at Wrestlemania.  This Sunday, his client Brock Lesnar will take that avenge, and Taker will know that tainted feeling that he has that legacy of conquering everyone, but Brock Lesnar.

This is what Paul has wrong, because when you take everything from a man, then that man ends up fighting with nothing to lose.

Bring it on, son.  Taker is ready.

And here comes Lesnar.

This is not the time, Taker is in Brock’s head.  And with that, Brock walks away, and Heyman tells him now he is in Taker’s head.

They will cross paths 6 days from now.

Next, a big 6-man tag match of Cena and The Dudleys Vs The New Day.

This Sunday at Hell in a Cell….John Cena’s US Title Open Challenge will be in effect.  Who takes the challenge?

Our match is up now.

Crowd tells us New Day sucks, but they disagree.

You might as well call them unicorns, because they have brought magic back to WWE.

You know what they say about Texas?  They say everything in Texas is booty.  Dez Bryant’s ankle is booty.

Tony Romo’s collar-bone is booty, and Kofi reminds them what they did a few weeks ago to them, they kicked their….

This is a PG show, Kofi.

Yeah, but we are The New Day.  We can do whatever we want, kick your ass.

Big tag match is now.

Woods picks up a quick run, rolling up Devon with the pants, when action was going on outside.

Cena and The Dudleys have had enough, and take care of them.

Cena gives Xavier an AA.

And now, it’s time for Devon to get the table.

And Xavier goes through another table.

Breaking news, Randy Orton never made the tour dates, and isn’t here on Raw.  He is injured, so who will Ambrose team with at Hell in a Cell?

Ambrose is talking with Dean Malenko and Fit Finlay.

We hear from “The Lunatic Fringe”, next.

Renee Young is with Dean Ambrose.

People want to talk about The Wyatts getting after Orton, it’s happened before, so who is to say it didn’t happen here.  He wants The Wyatts tonight.

Nikki and Alicia Fox will face Sasha and Naomi.

Nikki wins with a Rack Attack, pins Naomi.

Switching gears.

Footage from last Monday when “Demon” Kane defeated Rollins in a Lumberjack Match.

“Corporate” Kane is suspended for tonight’s show.

Shawn Michaels is with HHH, Shawn joins us next.

“The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michales comes to the ring.

Hell in a Cell is clearly upon us.  Shawn has been in a cage, and he has been in a cell.  But both pale in comparison to being inside Hell in a Cell.

Many years ago, Shawn was in the first ever Hell in a Cell.  He can’t remember who he was in the ring with.  Oh yeah, The Undertaker.

18 years later this Sunday, The Undertaker will step inside Hell in a Cell, and he will do it against Brock Lesnar.

But there will be another Hell in a Cell.  After weeks of ridicule, Roman Reigns will look to get redemption from Bray Wyatt.  Those two matches will tear the house down.

Enter the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins.

Crowd wants one more match, and that would be good.

Seth wants to know what Shawn is doing out here.  He knows what he was supposed to do, he was supposed to introduce “The Man”.  He was supposed to start the second hour, introducing Seth Rollins.

Shawn wanted to have a little bit of fun with these fans.  And he ended that fun when Rollins came out.

But the orders didn’t come from Seth, it came from his best friend, HHH.

He’s out here talking about Brock Vs Taker, that’s fine.  But he wants to talk about Reigns?  He needs to talk about the man who will steal the show this Sunday.  The man who people call “HBK Version 2”, except this new version is better.

What bothers Shawn is people is fine being “the next Shawn Michaels”.  Shawn would never be up for that.  Instead, he wanted to be the greatest wrestler that ever lived.  But Seth shouldn’t worry about Shawn, he needs to focus on Kane, because he is going to get ya.

Shawn is jealous of Seth, because Seth had a moment at Wrestlemania that eclipsed anything Shawn had ever done.  But he’s done with Shawn, and as far as Kane goes, he will take care of “The Demon” and he will look up at the lights, like everyone else has done.  So hit his music.

No music, and Shawn brings up the one bad thing about being version 2 is they never play his music when he asks for it.  But Seth isn’t done, he has a match against Ryback.

Now hit his music.

Rollins Vs Ryback is next.

Rollins wins with a Pedigree, just like that.

Tonight, Ambrose faces Harper and Strowman in a 2-on-1 Handicap match.

Earlier tonight, The Undertaker had a message for Brock Lesnar.

Rusev is engaged to Lana, and we saw that segment last week with Summer Rae.

Another 6-man tag match, because the world needs more of that.

Ziggler, Cesaro, and Neville Vs King Barrett, Sheamus, and Rusev.

Barrett, Sheamus, and Rusev win the match when Sheamus gives Ziggler a Brogue Kick on the outside, and Barrett pins Ziggy.

A good match here.

Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair are discussing things.  Flair is up next.

Miz TV is this Thursday night on Smackdown, with Ziggler and Summer Rae.

WOOOOOOO, Ric Flair is in the ring.

Dallas, Texas….And The Nature Boy….WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Alot of history here, The Von Erichs, The Freebirds, WOOOOOOO!!!!

But Wrestlemania is right around the corner.  He just found out that Dean Ambrose will team up with his main man, Roman Reigns, now.


The Brothers Shield Vs The Wyatts.

Right when Reigns has the mic, we are interrupted by The Wyatts.

Reigns thanks Naitch, and now the three of them and one of them.

He does something different, he gets two chairs.  One is for him, and one is for Wyatt.

Erick Rowan is back, it seems.

Reigns is calling Bray Wyatt out in the middle of Dallas, Texas/

Here he comes.

Reigns wants to talk about Bray.  He is a bully.  He likes to pick on people, and he digs on that.  He digs power by fear.  He surrounds himself with mountains, because he is scared of being alone.  He sees fear in his eyes.  Before he calls them out, to kick his ass let’s talk about Sunday.

They can’t get in, and he can’t get out.  He should be very afraid of him.

And now the two men fight, and here comes backup.

Later tonight, Reigns and Ambrose Vs The Wyatt Family.

The Authority are watching what just happened.

Shawn comes in to say hi.

HHH says Ambrose and Reigns should have a partner.  HBK suggests Seth should be their partner.  This is like them taking care of a child.  How many times did HHH work multiple times?

Rollins doesn’t like this, and he said he will be in the ring with 5 world-class athletes, so if they need a partner, they have one.

For one night, The Shield reunites?

It’s now Charlotte Vs Brie Bella.

Charlotte makes Brie tap out to Figure Eight.

This Sunday, Nikki Vs Charlotte for the Divas Title.

Paige was watching backstage, and Renee Young interrupts.

Was Paige the one who attacked Natalya backstage before Smackdown.  Paige denies, and Renee isn’t buying it.

It could be anyone who doesn’t like the divas division, it could be anyone, past or present divas.  Renee questions her more, and Paige tells her she isn’t Erin Andrews, and she sure isn’t as pretty, so stay out of her business.

Ambrose, Reigns, and Rollins Vs The Wyatt Family tonight.

Kevin Owens Vs Mark Henry is now.

Owens finds a way to win with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

Here comes “The Big Guy” wanting some, and Owens leaves.

But Henry throws him back into the ring, so Ryback can come get him some.

Ryback hits a Powerbomb.

Feed Me More!!

Renee Young is standing by with Seth Rollins.  Seth says this is not a Shield reunion.  This is a showcase for Seth to show Shawn Michaels and HHH he is everything he says he is….The Man.  And if Reigns and Ambrose want to rehash the past, then he will have to lay them out, like the last time.

The Undertaker Vs Brock Lesnar video now.

6-Man Tag Match tonight of The Wyatt Family Vs The Shield.

Or is it?

The match ends with a DQ, when Rollins walks out with a “leg injury”, and Ambrose nails Strowman with a Kendo Stick to get DQ’d.

The show ends with Reigns and Ambrose standing tall.  No Kane rundown, no Orton rundown, not even a Harper sighting.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The show did its thing, certainly better than any show we have seen in a month.  The legends came in, did their thing, promoted the PPV.  I loved the tease of The Shield reuniting, it’s going to be real at some point.

It was weird to not see Kane, come in, even in “Demon” form since “Corporate” Kane was the one who was suspended, and not “Demon” Kane.  But we know he will face Seth in the ring, this Sunday.

I truly want to see Undertaker Vs Lesnar one more time.  I always liked their feud, even in 2002.
