WWE Monday Night Raw 5/9/16…Bullet Club Vs. Family

Tonight, Raw will feature a rematch from last week’s Raw main event.  Reigns and The Usos Vs AJ, Gallows, and Anderson.  We are also 13 days away from Extreme Rules, so expect some heavy promotion designed for that show.

I am also certain, Stephanie and her brother Shane will kick off Raw, together, right?

Raw is now.

Footage from last week, with Reigns, Usos Vs Styles, and his crew.

We are in Omaha, Nebraska.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

Tonight, 6-man elimination tag match with The Club Vs Family.

I was wrong, Y2J kicks off the show.

It’s time for the Highlight Reel.

Shut your mouth, and listen to me.  Tonight, the guest of his Highlight Reel was supposed to be Dean Ambrose.  But that won’t happen, because of Jericho.

He won’t be here tonight, in fact he might not be in WWE for a long, long time, because of Jericho.

But he has the next best thing.  It’s the remains of Mitch, the potted plant.

Ambrose came here to WWE to entertain us, but then Dean ended, just like Mitch the plant, a tsunami, known as Chris Jericho.

And now, Mitch is waiting for someone, or some thing to make him better, again.  But it won’t happen.  And what is sad is the fans, who are barbarians are talking about Mitch the Plant, when Dean was in a hospital last week.

But he understands why we like Mitch, because he is more entertaining than Dean Ambrose.  He has more charisma than Ambrose.  He can sell Mitch’s remains for $12, and become good as new, because he is worth more money than Dean Ambrose.

He understands why the fans can relate to Dean.  He is a loser, just like us, and Chris can’t relate to that, because he is a legend.  He is a “Haley’s Comet” of WWE superstars.  We can talk about a new era, but Chris knows what we want.  He will give us the gift of Jericho, drink it, man.

And furthermore….

And here comes Big Cass.

If Jericho ever hands Cass this as a gift, he better have a receipt, because the moment he turns around, he is returning it.

How Ya Doin’?

Cass knows who Chris is, but Cass doesn’t think Chris knows who the new era is.  Consider this a warning, because Cass has arrived.  And he better get out of his way, because Cass will run him over.

Jericho makes a joke about Enzo being in a hospital, and Cass tells him this new era doesn’t run, they fight.  And he suggests they do that now.

Chris tells Cass he is the best in the world….

Cass tells Chris he is the best in the world at what he does, but Cass is 7 feet tall.  And you can’t teach that.

Jericho takes his jacket off, says you want to fight.  He then walks away.

So Chris is running away?  There is only one word to describe that, and let him spell it out for him….


Jericho runs back, and Cass hits the big boot.

Tonight, Paige will face Charlotte.  But next, it’s Ziggler Vs Corbin.

Stephanie agrees with Shane’s direction, and tonight, Jericho will face Big Cass in the main event.  And she warns Chris to ever make the mistake of trying to draw a big wedge between she and her brother Shane.

Ziggler Vs Corbin is now.

Corbin wins the match with End of Days.

Tonight, 6-man elimination match of The Club Vs Family.

We come back, and see The Flairs try to persuade Shane McMahon into reversing Stephanie’s decision last week, from barring Flair at ringside at Extreme Rules.

The request is denied, and Shane orders Flair is banned from ringside tonight too.

Jo-Jo is with The Club.

AJ tells us last week, he had an opportunity to hit Roman Reigns with a steel chair.  He denied that, and we saw what Roman did, which means he would do anything he can to keep the title.  AJ said he would beat Roman by himself at Extreme Rules.  But tonight, he has The Club, and anything will happen.

It’s R-Truth Vs Fandango, one on one.

Truth goes to the ropes, accidentally hits Tyler Breeze, and nails What’s Up for the big win.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, its Gorgeous Truth Vs Goldango.

All 3 men involved in the Intercontinental Title picture are bickering with Shane and Steph.  Steph orders a Triple Threat match at Payback, for the IC Title.

But Sami Zayn has a problem.  Last week, when he held the IC Title, the people wanted it.

But Sami lost to Kevin Owens last week, but Sami proposed that he faces The Miz tonight, if he loses, he goes to the back of the line.

Steph and Shane agree to that, and the match is set.

Charlotte Vs Paige is now, with Natalya at ringside.

Flair shows up at ringside, but here comes the money.  Shane makes sure refs escort Flair out of ringside.

Charlotte has her back to Paige, and the Brit rolls up Charlotte for the pinfall.

Charlotte is still Women’s Champion, but loses the match.

Earlier tonight, Big Cass made a statement on Y2J.

Tonight, Jericho Vs Cass, and 6-man elimination tag match is set.  The Family Vs The Club.

The Miz Vs Sami, is now.

Sami picks up the win with a Hella Kick, advancing to Extreme Rules for an IC Title match.

Renee Young is with Becky Lynch.

Becky faced Emma last week, and Emma used Becky’s eye injury to her advantage for the win.

Emma did that on purpose, so trust her the next time they face each other in the ring, Emma is in line for a lass kicking.

Emma comes in, says she is using excuses, but what she really needs are eyes in the back of her head.

The debuting Dana Brooke comes in and attacks Becky.

EMD is on Raw.

Darren Young is ready for a change, he needs a life coach, and asks Mr. Bob Backlund to be his life coach.  Backlund will be his wrestling coach.  Bob’s first rule in life coach is wrestling is life.

Switching gears.  We caught up with Xavier Woods on his Youtube show, “Up Up, Down Down”.

It’s a Pizza Hut commercial.

Zack Ryder wants to be IC Champion again.  He wants to be a major player, again.

Shane appreciates his fire, and this is about chances in WWE.  Kevin Owens shows up again.

Owens beat Sami, so he should not even get an IC Title match.  But Zack beat Owens at Wrestlemania, so he should get a title shot.

So Shane has an idea, if Zack can beat Owens tonight, then Zack can slide right in, and get IC Title shot at Extreme Rules.

Tom Phillips is with The Family.

Usos tell Tom the difference between The Club, and Family, is they are family.  You hit one person, you mess with them all.

Tonight, it can be One Vs Three, or One Vs All.  But Reigns has his family, they will take care of Gallows and Anderson.  But then, Reigns will eliminate Styles.

Next, it’s Sin Cara Vs Rusev.

Sin Cara defeated Rusev, with some help from Kalisto.

I don’t like this trend going on tonight, champions or number one contenders losing.

6-man tag action is next.

AJ is DQ’d when The Club helps him out, with a chair shot on Reigns, after it was AJ and Roman one on one.  Then we have a fight break out.  AJ dared Reigns to use a chair, and when he picked it up, AJ escaped.  He tells Reigns Roman needs the chair, not AJ.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw.

Zack Ryder Vs Kevin Owens is now.

Pop-Up Powerbomb, Kevin Owens is going to Extreme Rules.

Last week at Payback, Enzo Amore received a concussion.  He is in recovery.

Renee Young is with Big Cass.  Cass is dedicating his match to Enzo.



Kofi reminds us in 2 weeks, they will face The Vaudevillians for the WWE World Tag Team Championship.

We must hail the last Booty-O.

The Vaudevillians do not appreciate a good booty.  They are from a bygone era, which quite frankly were not to kind to people like them….smart phone users.

Call you Mami, and your Papi, and tell them new Day Rocks.

Here come The Dudley Boyz.  They are facing New Day, next.

Dudleys win the match, with some help from The Vaudevillians.

Not a good night for the champions.

This Thursday on Smackdown, it will be Owens and The Miz Vs Sami and Cesaro.  Also, Reigns Vs Gallows.

Big Cass Vs Jericho, our main event is now.

A man attacks Jericho, and took his jacket.  That man is Dean Ambrose, and he wants some of Chris Jericho.

Dean tears up Jericho’s jacket.  We will call him Barry, for now.

And Chris runs off, but is met by Big Cass.

Cass runs him right back into the ring, and is met with Dirty Deeds.

$15,000 jacket is torn to pieces.

The show ends here, with Ambrose walking away, and Jericho is beside himself.

Stephanie and Shane is walking in the back.  They are getting along, it seems.

Stephanie looks at the picture of Shane and Vince.

Jericho is still beside himself, irate over the $15,000 jacket.  You idiot.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

An interesting show tonight, certainly better than last week, and a minimal showing of Shane and Stephanie.

I am looking forward to Styles Vs Reigns again, at Extreme Rules.  Those two have good chemistry.  And a very good showing for Big Cass tonight.  He didn’t wrestle, but he went toe to toe with Jericho on the mic, and he handled himself very well.
