WWE Monday Night Raw 4/11/16…Dr. Phil Examines The McMahon Family

Tonight, Dr. Phil guest stars on Raw, and Shane McMahon is once again in charge.  I hope we do get to see Dr. Phil examine the McMahon Family.  Think of the humor.

Raw is now.

The show is dedicated to the memory of “Blackjack” Mulligan, who passed away this past week.

We are live in Los Angeles.

Here Comes The Money!!

Shane McMahon kicks off Raw.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

What’s up Los Angeles.  His father gave him control of Raw last week, for his own amusement.  Well, he must be amused, because he is doing it again.  Shane thanks the fans for this opportunity.  Tonight, Natalya has challenged Charlotte for the Women’s Championship.  That will happen tonight.  We also will have a tag team tournament, who will face The New Day.  That happens tonight.

Congratulations to AJ Styles, who won last week in the Fatal 4-Way, and he will face Roman Reigns for the World Title.

But tonight, we will give another opportunity to Sami Zayn.  Sami will face AJ Styles, and if he wins, he will get a Triple Threat Title match, at Payback for the WWE World Title.

Here comes Kevin Owens.

Shane, with all due respect, it’s a good thing Shane won’t be in charge much longer, because if he thinks Sami Zayn deserves a title opportunity, then Shane had a few more screws loose in his brain.

Shane reminds Kevin he had opportunities, and he lost.  Kevin reminds him he never was pinned in either time.  But what isn’t fair is he has never received his IC Title rematch, and he demands that opportunity, tonight.

Shane says you earn your opportunity when he is in charge.  And he will compete tonight, against a man who has been here since 2:30, ready to compete, and that man is Cesaro.

Winner will face The Miz for the IC Title, at Payback.  That match happens, now.

Cesaro with the big win over Owens, with a Neutralizer.  Great match, they worked a story with the arm Cesaro had injured.  A great way to start off Raw.

Tonight, we will see Charlotte defend her WWE Women’s Championship against Natalya, and we see video from that segment last week.

Backstage, Charlotte tells her daddy she is the victim here, and should not defend her title tonight, after 8 days of Wrestlemania.

Flair is upset at Shane for making this match.

Dr. Phil!!

He has seen Charlotte work so hard to get where she is now.  Phil says though that Flair is holding Charlotte back, because he is not allowing her to stand on her own two feet.  Charlotte doesn’t need Flair.

Flair wants to fight Dr. Phil, and he is ready for Flair….WOOOOOO

Owens is screwed again tonight.  What happens to Sami Zayn tonight is on Shane’s pretty hair.

Shane throws Owens out of the building.

OHHHHHHHHHHHH L.A., don’t you dare be sour and clap for you world-famous 2-time World Tag Team Champions.

It’s a New Day, yes it is.

It seems that as of last week, just like NBA Jam, the tag team division is “on fire”.  They all want a share of the WWE World Tag Team Champions.  But who will it be?




Shane McMahon said earlier that someone will get the opportunity to be the Number One Contenders, and face The New Day.  Brought to you by Booty-O’s.

So the first match of the Number One Contender to Tag Team Championship is under way.

The Lucha Dragons Vs The Dudley Boyz, next.

The Dudleys win with 3-D.

They issue more challenges, and enter Cass and Enzo.

His name is Enzo Amore, and he is a bonafide G, and you can’t teach that.  This guy right here, his name is Big Cass, he is 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.  Badda Bing, Badda Boom!!

How Ya Doing!!

The Dudleys tell them to shut up, they paved the way for guys like them.  So move out-of-the-way, and Enzo tells Bubba he is here because one day his mom and dad decided to get it on, know what I’m sayin’.

Big Cass told them that if they paved the way, they better get their work jackets on, because they will jackhammer their way through them, because guys like Bubba and Devon are….


We will hear from the WWE World Champion, Roman Reigns, next.

Kevin Owens is being escorted out of the arena.

Here comes Roman Reigns.

Reigns starts off by saying this, as the crowd is booing him.

It’s all good because Roman isn’t a good guy, he isn’t a bad guy, he is THE guy.

And at WWE Payback, he is defending this title against AJ Styles.  And if he loses tonight against Sami Zayn, he is defending this title in a Triple Threat.

He has a tremendous amount of respect for both men.  They have won multiple championships, but they have never won THE championship.

Here come The League of Nations.

Sheamus asks Roman if he’d be this confident if he faced any of them at WWE Payback.

Reigns said they don’t scare him.

Sheamus brings up maybe they should, because they got rid of the weak link in King Barrett, and that makes them a strong unit.

Any one of them would have competed in the Fatal 4-Way, they would have won.

Reigns tells them all to come down and get their ass kicked.

Here they come, but here comes The Wyatt Family to swarm off League of Nations.

Shane O’ Mack comes back out, he likes the idea of the Wyatts and Reigns kicking ass together, so later tonight, they will team up against any 2 members of League of Nations.

For the first time, Wyatt teams with Reigns.

Also tonight, AJ Styles will face Sami Zayn, and next….Women’s Title match with Charlotte Vs Natalya.

The Colons welcome us to paradise, Puerto Rico.

Here comes Dr. Phil.

Charlotte Vs Natalya is next.

Nattie has Charlotte in a Sharpshooter, Charlotte taps out, however Flair pushes the ref out of the ring, he never saw it.  So Charlotte is DQ’d.

Something tells me we will see a rematch at Payback.  Dr. Phil is disappointed in Charlotte for allowing this to happen.

Earlier tonight, Kevin Owens was kicked out of The Staples Arena, and we see what happened last week, when Owens took Sami out of the Fatal 4-Way match.

Renee Young is with Sami Zayn.

Is he ready for tonight’s big match?

Sami has been preparing for this his entire life.  Sami has heart and soul, and that is something Kevin Owens can’t take from him.

AJ Styles shows up.  He tells Sami they have been working for this long together, and he has a tremendous amount of respect for him.  But he is the only Number One Contender, and he plans to keep it like that.

Tag Team Tournament continues with The Usos Vs The Social Outcasts, now.

The Usos win with rolling up the tights, after the Outcasts prematurely celebrate over a hip toss.

But Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows attack The Usos after the match.

Seeds of the Bullet Club, it seems.

Oh, what a Raw this has been, so far.

Also tonight, Reigns and Bray Wyatt team to face Del Rio and Sheamus.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows made their debut, attacking The Usos.

Also earlier tonight, Cesaro defeated Kevin Owens to face The Miz at Payback for the Intercontinental Title.

Maryse is upset that The Miz hasn;t been treated right, shoves the goofy stage hand, and tells him to do his job right.

Jo-Jo comes up, and asks The Miz how he feels about the controversial win over Zack Ryder last week, and his upcoming match against Cesaro.

Maryse asks Jo-Jo who told her to come to his locker room, and she makes a great point.  The Miz tells Jo-Jo he is “The Swiss Superman’s” kryptonite.

Cesaro shows up, and reminds Miz he will take his IC Title, and do just fine at Payback.

Zayn Vs AJ Styles is next.

Styles wins with a Phenomenal Forearm.  A great match here between the two superstars.

Tonight, Reigns and Bray Vs Sheamus and Del Rio.

Highlight Reel with Chris Jerichio is next.

Seth Green is in the house, and moments ago, AJ Styles defeated Sami Zayn.  AJ Vs Reigns, one on one for Payback is set.

Shane thanks AJ and Sami for an awesome match.

Chris Jericho comes out to the ring.

His guest is the biggest star in WWE history, he is a sure-fire Hall of Famer, a multi-time World Champion, and he has main evented Wrestlemania.  His guest is Chris Jericho.

He owes his success to himself.  He is the best in the world at what he does, do we understand what we’re saying.  Tonight, he gives us the gift of Jericho.  Drink it in.

Now Chris, you truly are the best in the world.  Not only are you a multi-time World Champion, you were the very first Undisputed World Champion.  You defeated The Rock and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin on the same night.  Who can touch that.

Nobody can, there is not a WWE Superstar who can beat him right now.

You’re right Chris, there isn’t.

Enter Dean Ambrose.

He has a parting gift, a plant.

So Chris wants to know what he is doing here.  This is his show.

This is Dean Ambrose’s show now.

There is a memo, straight from Shane O’ Mac.

The Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho has been cancelled, and will be replaced by The Ambrose Asylum, hosted by Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose is even wearing a clip on tie, and welcomes us to The Ambrose Asylum, and his first guest is Chris Jericho.

So what is up with that scarf?

The scarf costs $700, but he knows what Ambrose is doing.  He is interrupting Chris because Chris interrupted Dean’s victory celebration last week on Smackdown.  But he does what he does, because he has earned legendary status in WWE.  Look at me when I am talking to you, boy.

So you won’t be talking about the scarf?

Jericho tries to shove Ambrose but Dean hits Dirty Deeds.

Apollo Crews is next.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, 2 more Number One Contender matches for Tag Titles.  I guess Goldust is upset that he and Truth are a part of it.  And here is the kicker, it was Dr. Phil’s idea.

Apollo Crews Vs Adam Rose is now.

Crews wins with the Sitout Powerbomb.

More Puerto Rico fun from The Colons.

Video about “The Lone Wolf” Baron Corbin.

To make a deal with the devil, you must make a holy bond.  And even though they have had their issues, and they will never like each other, they have a common enemy.  And Roman, don’t worry, you can trust him.  And Los Angeles, we’re here.

Wyatt and Reigns Vs Sheamus and Del Rio, our main event is now.

Bray and Roman win with Sister Abigail, Bray pinning Del Rio.  The Wyatts took out Rusev, and Reigns speared Sheamus.

After the match, Roman and Bray went face-to-face, and we end the show here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A big show tonight, and everything seemed to work.  Every single match seemed important, and the build for Payback got started, and it seems to be a good card.

I’d love to see more of Shane McMahon, so the ball is in your court WWE.  What did you think?  Send me your thoughts.
