WWE Monday Night Raw 9/25/16…The Buddy System

Match Number One:  Roman Reigns Vs Rusev (US Title Match)

We begin the night with a match, it will be Reigns Vs Rusev, with Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcoming us to the show.  A very good match, even with a crappy ending.  There was a double count out, as both men are sent through the crowd.  Lana tried to interfere, but Reigns prevented that.  Reigns tries a Superman Punch, but is met by a steel chair by Rusev.  But Reigns nails a spear, when Rusev sent him back to the ring, and was going to swing a chair.

Winner:  Double Countout (Reigns is still US Champion)

Tonight, another rematch from Clash of Champions, New Day Vs Gallows and Anderson.  WWE Tag Team Title match is on the line.  We get another commercial from WWE2K17, coming out in 2 weeks.  Mick Foley is on his way out, to address Sheamus Vs Cesaro, next.

Segment 2:  Promo- Mick Foley, Sheamus, and Cesaro

Last night, Cesaro Vs Sheamus was ruled a no contest.  They culminated their epic match, which ended in a draw.  So Mick asks for both men to come out here.  Sheamus is all taped up, coming to the ring.  And here comes Cesaro.  As Mick starts to speak, Sheamus interrupts.  He brings up Mick stated whoever would be the most dominant after the 7 matches would get a championship opportunity.  If that wasn’t Sheamus, he doesn’t know what Foley was watching.  Cesaro remembers something different, asking why Sheamus didn’t come back in the ring?  They argue back and forth, stating both of them are tougher.  Sheamus is better than Cesaro, and Cesaro disagrees.  Mick states they both are right, but he is going to grant both of them championship opportunities.  Not separate opportunities, they will share this moment, competing for Tag Team opportunities.  Both of them hate that, but Mick stated they don’t have to like it, and if they agree with this, they will face the winner of this match….

OHHHHHHHH CINCINNATI, DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR, STAND UP AND CLAP FOR YOUR WORLD FAMOUS 2-TIME WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS.  THERE IS A NEW DAY, YES IT IS.

Match Number 2:  New Day Vs Gallows and Anderson (WWE Tag Team Title Match).

Another great match here.  A bloodied up Kofi Kingston wins for his team, hitting Trouble in Paradise, pinning Karl Anderson.  New Day have been Tag team Champions for 400 days.  It seems they will be facing Sheamus and Cesaro down the road.

Winners (And Still WWE Tag Team Champions):  New Day

The announcers go over Rollins Vs Owens last night at Clash of Champions.  Chad Patten was knocked out, Stephanie McMahon sent out another referee, and Kevin Owens retained his title with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.  From a WWE.com exclusive, Tom Phillips tries to get a word from Stephanie McMahon, and she blows him off, greeting HHH.  Seth Rollins was sent to a Cincinnati facility today, checking a MRI on his ribs.  He is not cleared to compete tonight.  But we get a Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho, and his guest is Kevin Owens.

Segment 4:  Cesaro, Sheamus, and Mick Foley

Cesaro and Sheamus are still bickering, and Mick approaches them both, saying their match last night was fantastic, and if he puts them in a singles match again, he would risk losing them.  He can’t do that, but if you get 2 singles wrestlers together, they can create magic together.  It’s what Mick wants to prove to them, and the world.  The two are amazing.

Match Number 3:  Bayley Vs Anna Fields

Bayley to Belly, hugs for everyone.  Tom Phillips, the dude with the haircut asks Bayley how she feels about losing last night;s title match.  Bayley brings up they are the two best performers in the company, but she is coming back for more.  And she won’t stop until she hugs that Women’s Championship.

Winner of Match:  Bayley

Segment Number 5:  Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley.

Mick calls himself a fool for believing in Stephanie, but when he checked on Cesaro, she came out, sent another referee, when Chris Jericho kept interfering.  Kevin Owens was at the right place at the right time, and pinned Rollins.  Then WWE.com showed an exclusive interview with Steph, and her husband HHH picked her up, and asked how things went.  Steph berates Mick blaming him, because the action got out of hand.  Mick needs to think with his mind, and not heart.  It’s Mick’s responsibility, and if he can’t do it, she has no problem showing him the door.  Mick agreed he dropped the ball on this, and apologized.  Seth Rollins will come here tonight, and go after Owens, so perhaps he needs to look after Seth and make sure he doesn’t do anything stupid.

Coming up next:  Cedrick Alexander and Rich Swann Vs Lince Dorado and Drew Gulak, on Raw.

Match Number 4:  Tag Match-Cedrick Alexander and Rich Swann Vs Lince Droado and Drew Gulak.

Swann and Alexander win the match when Swann hits a kick to the head, and bridges Gulak for the win.  These guys hit some wicked shots here.

Winners:  Cedrick Alexander and Richard Swann

Tonight:  TJ Perkins is in action, Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho.  His guest?  Kevin Owens.  Cesaro and Sheamus are in action, next.

Match Number 5:  Tag Team-Cesaro and Sheamus Vs Nick Cutler and Willis Williams

Who names these guys?  Cesaro had Cutler with a Neutralizer, but Sheamus hits both men with Brogue Kicks.

Winners:  Sheamus and Cesaro

Video Package:  TJ Perkins

Segment Number 8:  Promo with TJ Perkins.

Tom Phillips with TJ Perkins.  This is his Raw debut, and he is ready to prove he belongs here, but The Brian Kendrick shows up.  He wants to see if TJ has what it takes, because the next time they face each other, that Cruiserweight Title is coming back to where to belongs.

Next:  (Women’s Champion) Charlotte and Dana Brooke.

Segment Number 9:  Promo with Charlotte (Women’s Champion and Dana Brooke.

Clash of Champions  was once again Charlotte’s night, and she proved once again she is the Queen of the Women’s Division.  Charlotte beat two of the greatest women in the ring today.  But that is the difference between Charlotte and Bayley, and the difference between herself and Sasha, she backs what she says.  Charlotte also knows she disappointed every single one of us, because we always believe the new challenger will beat her.  But that does not happen.  She isn’t the huggable newcomer, and she isn’t the internet darling….

Here comes Sasha Banks.  Telling Charlotte last night might have been hers, but that title is still coming back to her.  Charlotte didn’t pin Sasha, she wants her one on one rematch, and she wants it tonight.  Charlotte tells her she is the Queen.  But she will give her what we want, and she will give Sasha what she wants, and that is a Women’s Title match….next week.  Because if she didn’t give her a title shot, she would be crying to Mick Foley.  But since every time she knocks her down, Sasha gets right back up.  But Charlotte promises her.  Sasha promises her that when she gets her hands on Charlotte, she will get her title back.  Sasha slaps Charlotte on the face, and gives Dana Brooke a backstabber.  Women’s Title match is issued, next week in Los Angeles.

Tonight:  Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho, with Kevin Owens.  Seth Rollins is here, he is walking.

Segment Number 10:  Seth Rollins and Mick Foley

Mick asks Seth how is he feeling, Seth says he is doing okay.  He will be there at Highlight Reel somehow.  He saw what Stephanie did, leaving the arena with HHH.  Screw the rules Mick, because when he sees him talking, he hears Stephanie’s words coming from his mouth.

Match Number 6:  T.J. Perkins (WWE Cruiserweight Champion) Vs Tony Nese.

It’s official, next week on Raw in Los Angeles, it will be T.J. Perkins Vs The Brian Kendrick.  T.J. Perkins picks up the win, making Tony tap out to his Knee Bar.

Winner:  TJ Perkins (WWE Cruiserweight Champion)

Video:  Hispanic Heritage Month:  Pedro Morales.

Next:  Highlight Reel

Next Week:  Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks, WWE Women’s Championship Match.

Segment Number 12:  Highlight Reel With Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens

Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson will be at Raw, next week.  Quiet!!  Quiet!!  Quiet!!  Be quiet, because tonight is the most anticipated Highlight Reel in WWE history.  But first he wants to address Ashton and Danny, how dare you claim you’re better friends than Chris and Kevin.  If you two want to show up next week on Raw, then Chris will put them on the list.  He also put the camera guy on the list.  Another man on the list, Seth Rollins.  He got hurt, again.  Jericho has been in the WWE for 17 years, and he has never been hurt.  Seth has been here for a year and a half, and he is hurt, again.  But someone who isn’t on the list is his best friend, the WWE Universal Champion, Kevin Owens.

And the Cleveland Indians just won the American League Central Division Title, okay back to wrestling.

Kevin Owens showed last night what a real WWE Champion should be.  Owens usually dresses in a suit, but it’s Cincinnati, and we don’t deserve a suit.  He would never wear a suit for any place that brought us Dean Ambrose.  But let’s move on to business.  Kevin proved last night he should have been the number one pick in the draft.  But he also proved last night, he is THE MAN.  He hurt Seth Rollins, and Seth received some karma.  Because for a year and a half, Seth has said he is THE MAN.  And he was, but he hurt some distinguished people.  Guys like John Cena, “The ICON” Sting, and “The Demon King”  Finn Balor.  Seth might have been the most dangerous man in WWE, but Kevin took him out last night.  You know what that makes him?  The most dangerous man in WWE.  Seth Rollins shows up, but security and Mick Foley are out to stop him.  Kevin told us we are stupid idiots, so don’t give him what we want.  Go sit on your couch Seth.  He leaves, and here comes.

Big Cass and Enzo.  His name is Enzo Amore, he is a certified G, and a bona fide stud, and you can’t teach that.  This guy here is Big Cass, he is 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.  Badda Bing, realist guys in the room, HOW YA DOIN’?  Jericho just put tem on the list.  They call Chris Santa Claus, and Jericho said he would come up there, and sit on his lap.  Chris denies it, but he did say it.  But this will lead to.

Match Number 7:  Tag Match, Jericho and Owens Vs Enzo and Big Cass.

A fun match here, especially with Owens trash talking with Enzo.  Jeri-KO wins with a Pop-Up Powerbomb, Owens pins Enzo.  The show ends with the two best friends celebrating their big win, together.

Winners:  Jericho and Owens.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I loved the beginning of the show, but it dragged, again in hour 2.  I enjoyed the main event, so overall, it was a good show.  Not sure if the ratings will reflect on that.  Next week, they are building the show as big.  Now is the time to put the Women’s Title match as the main event next week, especially if Sasha wins.  We will see, and I love the team of Sheamus and Cesaro.  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me.
