WWE Monday Night Raw 2/29/16…The Undertaker Speaks

We are in Music City, as the Road to Wrestlemania makes a stop in Nashville.  The Undertaker will confront Mr. McMahon, and we will hear from HHH, kicking off Raw.

Tonight is the night says the opening music.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

Behold The King….The King of Kings.  On your knees, punk.

Here comes the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, HHH.

Roman Reigns suffered a shattered nose.  He needed nasal reconstruction surgery.  In 34 nights, Reigns Vs HHH, at Wrestlemania.

Authority, a select few have it, the rest of you bow down to it.  Admit it, everyone has an authoritative moment in your life.  Someone tells you what to do, what to wear, what to say, and you all hate it.  And you want to stand up to it, but you don’t, because you are afraid.  Now that fear is not a bad thing, it keeps you in your place, so you all know your place in life.

Roman Reigns should have known, and listened to that fear.  Roman should have stayed in his place, but he didn’t.  He chose to challenge him, to disrespect him.  But where did that disrespect get Roman?  He is sitting at home, breathing through a straw and hoping his spot stays at Wrestlemania.  Roman Reigns should know his place, and everyone who hears his voice should know…

But here comes Dean Ambrose.

Dean just got off the phone with Roman Reigns.  He wanted Dean to tell him hi, and he is coming for him.

HHH mocks Dean, calling him a “supporting actor”.

Ambrose is in a movie, called 12 Rounds 2.

Dean did want to talk to him last week, but he was attacked by a grizzly bear in Brock Lesnar.  He came back in an ambulance, then he attacked Roman Reigns with a sledgehammer, and he’s facing Brock at Wrestlemania.  Then Shane McMahon came back, and he’s in a fight with The Undertaker.

He wants to know who did HHH want to win, or better yet, who did he not want to win?

HHH dismisses that, and says Dean Ambrose was not a factor in that match, he couldn’t even see him.

Dean comes face to face with HHH, introducing himself.  He is Dean Ambrose, and he was the last person HHH wanted to face at Wrestlemania.

HHH laughs about that, calling him mental.

I guess Ambrose doesn’t do the smartest things, but HHH does.  He calls himself “The Cerebral Assassin”, and he smells it all over HHH.

HHH says that is money, and power, something Dean doesn’t have.

That’s a lot of talk for HHH, so how about a little action from the COO.  How about Dean Vs HHH?  How about Dean Vs HHH for the title?

And his brother Roman Reigns won the right to face the champion at Wrestlemania, but that doesn’t mean HHH will be the champion.  And if he’s talking a little crazy, but let’s do it right now.

HHH asks Dean if it thinks that happens just by the talk of his voice?  But HHH will admit it, that idea sounds intriguing, so he will give it some thought.  He will give it in advisement, and see if it’s best for business.  He will give him his answer at the end of the night.  Ambrose asks if this is the end of Raw, or if it’s the end of the night, because Dean has things to do.

HHH tells him at the end of Raw, and he does have things to do.  He was going to give Dean the night off, but he will face Alberto Del Rio, with the entire League of Nations surrounding the ring.  We will see if he knows how to respect The Authority.

The Undertaker is here tonight, as is Vince Mcmahon, and Stephanie McMahon.

At least that is how WWE presented it.

But next, it’s Becky Lynch Vs Sasha Banks, Number One Contender to Divas Title.

Both women are pinned when all four shoulders are pinned.  So it’s a draw.

An incredible match here, and I believe we will see a Triple Threat at Wrestlemania.

Charlotte, who was watching this celebrates, because she feels she won’t be defending her title.

The Wyatts interrupt.

They say a definition of insane is doing the same thing over and over.  Then again, maybe he is insane.  Or maybe he knows exactly what he is doing.  Because he has a plan, and that plan will show complete dominance.  So come with him, and he will show us paradise.  If not, then run.

Okay, moving on.

Dolph Ziggler Vs The Miz is now.

The Miz wins with a rollup on Ziggler.

Last week on the Raw Pre-show, they had a confrontation.  Ziggler asked The Miz what has he done lately?  He beat Ziggler.

Tonight, AJ and Jericho Vs The New Day.  But next, Here Comes The Money.  Footage from Shane McMahon’s return.

We are in Nashville, right across the street from Tootsie’s Bar.

We get a Raw Rebound, with Shane McMahon returning to Raw last Monday night.

Stephanie McMahon will give us her speech, next.

Good lord, I hope Undertaker interrupts her.

Wrestlemania is 34 days away.

Here comes Stephanie McMahon.

She tells us last week, she had her moment accepting that Legacy Award, but her brother interrupted it.  So she will give us the speech, in its entirity.

The crowd isn’t giving her respect she deserves.  So she throws everything.  Shane, who blackmailed WWE and her father, yet we cheer for Shane.  What does that say about us?  He asked for a 2-year vacation, and escaped from WWE for 7 years, and he comes back, and we welcome him with open arms?  He wants to run this company for his legacy?  Yet he doesn’t show up for 7 years, not even at Wrestlemania, so what does that say about his family?  The sad thing is she loves his brother, and this is how he treats her?  It bothers she married HHH, and they run this family, but does he even talk about his 2 nieces?  Her nephews will get a chance to run this company someday, but they will all be in line with her daughters.  And we all accept this?  She and her husband have worked their tails off for this company.  That shows their work ethic, but it upsets them that The Authority run this company.  But The Undertaker will dismember Shane McMahon anyway, so he can run away again. And then we will bow down to the king, and queen.

We will hear from The Undertaker, live tonight.

Lucha Dragons Vs Sheamus and Rusev, now.

Sheamus and Rusev wins when Rusev pins Kalisto with a kick.

Del Rio stomps Kalisto’s head, because he let him win the last 10 times.

Natalya is giving us a Subway commercial, no lie.  She really did.

Feed Me More!!

Ryback is set to face Adam Rose.

Shellshock, match is done.

A video piece on Brock Lesnar.

He faces Dean Ambrose, at Wrestlemania.

New Day Vs Y2AJ, now.

Feel the power Music City.

Kofi tells us the reason why they are the most successful team is because they have a brotherhood.  They make fun of the League of Nations, League of Booty.

But they don’t pretend to like each other, like Y2AJ.

Speaking of, here comes Y2AJ.

Y2AJ wins the match, with Jericho making Kofi tap out to the Walls.

AJ tells New Day that Y2AJ defeated the Tag Champs, which makes them a Number One Contenders to the Tag Champions.  Jericho issues a challenge to Tag Team Title, next week on Raw.

Y2AJ, Wrestlemania, New Day will never, never, EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVER be the same AGA-AIN.

Will HHH accept Dean Ambrose’s title shot?  Ambrose will face Del Rio, tonight.

The Undertaker is next.

Mr. McMahon comes to the ring.

Imagine Vince introducing us to his son, Shane McMahon the night after Wrestlemania.  That means hell has frozen over, and the sea will part.  It means that his daughter and son-in-law, HHH will leave the business.  It means that Shane will use Vince in a corporate role, never to be seen on TV again.  It means Shane is running Monday Night Raw, and essentially running WWE.

But that won’t happen, because only fools believe in miracles.  He loves his son, but he wants to teach him a lesson.  He loves him so much that he would put him in the ring with the most sadistic man ever to grace the ring, his destruction of terror.  That man is The Undertaker.

Taker is still dressed like The Deadman.

Taker is looking at that Wrestlemania sign.

Undertaker is Vince’s force of destruction, he does….

Taker grabs Vince by the neck.

Vince knows what will happen when he closes that door behind him at Wrestlemania.  The blood on Vince’s son will be at his hands, not Taker’s.

Well said, and to the point.  I love it.

Vince takes some sips of water, to clear his throat.

The reality is as Vince says.  He will be standing here in this ring, the night after Wrestlemania.  He will be standing here to say his son Shane has failed him at Wrestlemania.  He has failed him as a son, and he has lost his inheritance, and will give everything to Stephanie.  But with everything that has happened, it pains him to say this, he renounces Shane as his son.  He will just be a son of a bitch.

This should bring Linda McMahon into this next week.

Jey Uso Vs Bubba Ray Dudley.

Bubba wins the match with a Bubba Bomb, after D-Von used a table on Jimmy Uso, Bubba took advantage of the distraction.

Truth doesn’t want to team with Goldust.  Goldust seems rejected by that.

Will HHH put his WWE World Title on the line against Dean Ambrose?  We will find out tonight.  Also Ambrose Vs Del Rio.

But next, Kevin Owens Vs Big Show.

Owens loses by countout when Big Show threw him on the ropes.

Payback from Smackdown?

Brie Bella is confident about her match with Naomi.

Lana interrupts.  

She has everything, and Brie does not.

Naomi makes Brie tap out, and Lana applauds the effort.

Ambrose Vs Del Rio is next.

The Fabulous Freebirds are the newest inductees to the Hall of Fame, joining Sting and The Godfather.

Earlier tonight, Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks finished their match with a draw.  Charlotte informs them they get a rematch this Thursday night on Smackdown.

Also earlier tonight, Vince McMahon announced he has denounced his son.  

Dean Ambrose Vs Del Rio is now.

The match ends in a DQ, when the rest of League of Nation beat down Ambrose, for HHH to come down to the ring.

HHH tells Dean when will he ever learn that he will never beat The Authority.  Dean starts whaling on HHH, and Hunter gives him a pedigree.

You want a title match?  You’re on.

He walks away, and Ambrose thanks him.

Them are fighting words.

He flings Ambrose on the announce table, gives him more shots, with Ambrose bleeding from the mouth.

HHH walks away, with Ambrose laying on the announce table.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I am just confused by this.  I just know 3 matches for Wrestlemania, but when will Ambrose get his title shot?

WWE has a show on March 12th, on WWE Network.  Is it then?  But make no mistake about it, The Authority was on tonight, as was Dean Ambrose.

Next week’s Raw in Chicago is set up to be huge.  Y2AJ Vs New Day, for Tag Titles.  We will also see Shane McMahon come back.

I have no issue with that.  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.
