WWE Monday Night Raw 8/15/16…The Final Countdown To Summerslam

Tonight, the final episode of Raw, leading to Summerslam.  We will hear from Brock Lesnar, will Randy Orton be involved?

Raw is now.

We see what took place last week, when Lana and Rusev were celebrating their nuptials.  And Roman Reigns crashed the party.  We also saw the conflict with Seth Rollins doubting “The Demon King”, and tonight, he calls out “The Demon King”.

We are live in Corpus Cristi, Texas.

Earlier today, Rollins stated that we are 6 days away from Seth proving he is “The Man”, and he is not afraid of “The Demon King”.

Rusev and Lana kick the show off, they want Reigns to come out, they are holding the show hostage.  But here comes Mick Foley.

Rusev is not impressed with Foley.  He says he sucks as Raw General Manager.  How could he put a match with Reigns at Summerslam?  He doesn’t deserve a United States Title match.  He has received opportunity after opportunity, and has failed.

He wants a real authority, calling out Stephanie McMahon, and here she comes.

Lana is still in her wedding dress.  She must have had it cleaned after being hit into a wedding cake.

Stephanie tells Rusev he doesn’t respect Foley?  Mick deserves respect more than anyone.

Rusev doesn’t care about Foley.  Maybe he should give her brother Shane a call?  They appreciate talent.

And here comes Roman Reigns.

He’s sorry, Roman is sorry Rusev found that website that he found his wife in.  And he and Lana will make ugly babies.

Rusev isn’t impressed.

Reigns says let’s fight tonight.  Stephanie and Mick assures them the US Title will wait for Summerslam.  But Foley suggests they can face each other tonight.  Tonight, it’s Rusev Vs Reigns, to defend Lana’s honor, right here in Corpus Cristi, Texas.

Tonight, we will see “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar.  And also tonight, Seth Rollins will call out “The Demon King”.

Sheamus Vs Sami Zayn.

Byron Saxton interviews Sheamus.

Its obvious Sheamus has dominated Cesaro, so now he is on to better things, like Sami Zayn.  Who is Sami Zayn?  He’s talking about Sheamus on Twitter?  But Sami is nothing to him.  He will do what he always does, kick his bleeding head off.

Here we go.

Sami picks up the win with Hella Kick, after Cesaro distracts Sheamus for a moment, evening the score from last week.

Tom Phillips is standing by with Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens.

Jericho and Owens accepted Enzo and Cass’ challenge for Summerslam.  But tonight, Owens will face Cass.  Jericho corrects Tom, saying he isn’t alone.  Jericho has Kevin’s back, and Kevin has Jericho’s back.  They have become closer in one week than Enzo and Cass.  Jericho talks about how can Enzo say he is a certified G?  Who certified him?  He doesn’t even have a licence.  And Enzo may be 7 feet tall, but he can’t spell.  There is no A, and W in soft.

But tonight, Kevin Owens will beat Cass, and at Summerslam, they will humiliate Enzo and Cass in their own backyard.

We come back, and see Cesaro and Sheamus argue back and forth.  Mick Foley intervenes, and tells them we will see a Best of Seven Series match between the two men, starting at Summerslam.

I can dig that.

The Dudley Boyz Vs The New Day is now.

Ringpostitis is real, people.  Dr. Gallows and Dr. Anderson are here to find a cure for it.

Trouble in Paradise, Kofi pins Devon, after a setback from The Dudleys.

We see the tests did not work.  So The New Day are not amused by this.  Calling out Anderson and Gallows are jokes.  This Sunday, at Summerslam, they will show they are the dominant tag team.

Nia Jax is up next.

Nia destroyed some wrestler named Rachel, with a Powerslam.

Paul Heyman will speak, next.

Here is Brock Lesnar.

Ladies and gentlemen….

Heath Slater interrupts this.  Oh boy.

Paul wants to make sure someone gave him the ridiculous idea to interrupt Heyman, and his client Brock Lesnar.

Heath Slater is the hottest free agent of Sports Entertainment today.  He doesn’t know what is wrong with Smackdown, they wouldn’t know talent if they slapped him in the face.  This is why Heath came to Heyman.

Paul is laughing about this.  Because is he seriously thinking about advocating for Brock Lesnar, and Heath Slater?

Heath is trying to say he is getting another opportunity at landing a Raw contract, and appearing on Summerslam, by beating his client, Brock Lesnar tonight.  So what he is trying to say is can he face his client one on one?

The joke is over, cut right to where the money is.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman….

Heath screams, and says he needs it.  His kids rely on Heath.  Do you really think Heath wants to do this?  Brock will kick his ass, but he has to.

Heyman is trying to save Heath’s ass.  Heath is trying to do this.

Brock speaks.

He can appreciate that, Heath has guts.  He has responsibilities, right?  He has to put food on the table?  He has mouths to feed.  He has kids?  Brock has kids too.  So let’s talk about Heath’s kids.  He doesn’t give a shit about Heath’s kids.

He has 2 choices.  He can either walk on his two feet, or he can stay there, and keep pissing Brock off.

Heath goes for option 2.

Brock destroyed Slater.

Moving on….

Heyman gives Slater credit, he is willing to stand up, and fight Brock Lesnar.  Because Randy Orton isn’t willing to do that.  He has to slide like a Viper.  You know why he won’t face Lesnar?  Because he doesn’t measure up.  He is supposed to hype the match.  He is supposed to say Orton has a chance, he is one RKO away from winning.  But he doesn’t say that, because his client won’t believe that.  Ladies and gentlemen, the summer is in heat.  You want Heyman to hype up the box office of Orton vs Lesnar at Summerslam?  This IS the box office of Summerslam.  Not even a 12-time World Champion.  You want to know we should subscribe to WWE Network?  Here is the hype.  This Sunday, we have a chance to see the box office attraction in an official match, at Summerslam.  This Sunday, we have a chance to see a man who supreme Mix Martial Arts.  This Sunday, we will have a chance to see live the one competing in a match, BRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOCK LESNAR!!!

Tonight, Seth Rollins calls out “The Demon King”.

Also tonight, Rusev Vs Reigns.  But next, Big Cass Vs Kevin Owens.

Enzo and Cass do their thing right now.

Owens is DQ’d when Jericho laid out both Enzo and Cass.

Tom Phillips asks Roman Reigns what can we expect from his match with Rusev tonight.  Reigns is ready for the big fight, and Rusev comes to lay him out.

Rusev lays Reigns out onto a table, but officials break this fight up.

This is WWE Summerslam week, so WWE Network is giving us plenty of action.

Primetime Players have been reunited.

They are facing The Shining Stars.

The reunion lasted for four minutes.  Darren bumped into his tag team partner, and Titus responds with a Clash of the Titus.  Epico pins Darren, Shining Stars win.

Tonight, Seth Rollins calls out “The Demon King”.

It’s Jinder Mahal Vs Neville is now.

Jinder tried, but he is beat with Red Arrow.

Mick Foley told Stephanie Jon Stewart will be their guest on Summerslam.

Who cares?

Seth Rollins has been looking for “Demon King” and he can’t find him.  He has done his part, so he should get the night off.  Before Seth gets the night off, try to call out “Demon King” in the ring.

Seth isn’t scared, he will do that.

We come back in the ring with Rollins.  There isn’t a “Demon King”.

He has been looking for him all day, and he can’t find it.  So everyone wait and see what Seth is about to say.  There is nothing, and no one who can stop him from becoming the first ever WWE Universal Champion.  He is on another level, and “Demon King” isn’t anywhere.  So he will give him one more chance to come out, and face him.

Where is “Demon King”?

Hahaha, let’s drop a little truth.  Finn Balor is only trying to intimidate him, because Finn Balor is scared of Seth Rollins.  He will be in the same position as everyone else.  Nobody can beat him.  And “Demon King” will be in the same situation.  He will be horrified in Seth’s story.  Finn Balor is the face of failure.  Because he has nowhere to hide.

It won’t matter, because at the end of the day, “Demon King” will have no choice but to bow down to the first ever WWE Universal Champion.

Lights go out, and we get “Demon King” entrance.

They should have waited until Summerslam for this.

The Demon King takes care of a speechless, and scared Seth Rollins.

This Sunday, Rollins Vs Balor for the newly created WWE Universal Championship.

We see footage of last Monday night with Rusev, Reigns, and Lana.

Tonight, Rusev Vs Reigns.

Gallows and Anderson Vs Golden Truth is now.

Gallows and Anderson win with Magic Killer.

Moving on.

But here come The New Day.

They got them some, I like a more serious New Day better, sometimes.

Dana wants to apologize for letting Charlotte down last week.  Charlotte allowed Dana to get a taste of being in the spotlight.  But why did Dana fail her when she needed it the most?  But this is Charlotte’s spotlight, and she will wear the gold again after this Sunday.  And on Monday night, she might ask Stephanie to give her someone who isn’t an epic failure.  Are you going to cry?

Charlotte Vs Alicia Fox is next.

Foxy Vs Charlotte is now.

Charlotte wins with Natural Selection.

Charlotte calls out Sasha to come out to the ring, and she does.  But Dana Brooke comes right in, and knocks distracts the champ, so Charlotte clips the knee and hits Figure Eight.

These two women clash this Sunday, at Summerslam.

We have a Braun Strowman video.

Lana is in the ring, and she told us earlier tonight, you show why you never mess with her husband.  So rise, and honor her woman who will fight and defend her.  The only man who can ever have her….RUSEV.

Rusev Vs Reigns is now.

Reigns wins the match with a spear.  A hard-fought match that told the story of Rusev throwing everything but the kitchen sink, in honor of his wife.  But Roman kicked out, and hit the big blow.

The show ends with Reigns celebrating, and Rusev is in disbelief.

This Sunday, these two face off again for the United States Title, at Summerslam.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another sub par episode.  The thing is the performers do the best they can with the material, but the magic isn’t there that was there the first night.

You buy Summerslam, or you watch Summerslam for the matches, knowing Balor Vs Rollins will deliver.  Knwoing Orton Vs Lesnar should be a good, productive match.

Because the writing to this has been piss-poor.
