WWE Monday Night Raw 10/10/16…The Challenge Is Issued

WWE Monday Night Raw, Live from Oakland, California

Monday, October 10th, 2016

Commentators:  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, Corey Graves

Segment 1:  Promo with Sasha Banks, Charlotte, Rusev, and Roman Reigns.

The new WWE Women’s Champion, “The Boss” Sasha Banks comes out.  Sasha feels like she is on top of the world.  It wasn’t long she was sitting at the top of the row out there.  And she was a little girl watching Raw at home.  She would watch her hero, Eddie Guerrero, lie, cheat, and steal our hearts in the WWE.  She would watch women like Trish Stratus and Lita tearing it up as the main event, and she dreamt about doing that.  Last week her dream came true.  She was in the main event, and became a 2-time Raw’s Women’s Champion.  Charlotte has a rematch at Hell in a Cell, so Sasha suggests they up the ante, and put this inside Hell in a Cell, and make history.

Enter Charlotte.  Now comes Rusev and Lana.  Nobody cares about your stupid women’s revolution.  And nobody cares that they made the main event last week, because Rusev is the main event every time he is in the ring.  Charlotte interrupts, and says nobody disrespect The Queen, that is the Women’s Championship, and Sasha might be the champion, she is still “The Queen”.  And if Sasha wants to be inside Hell in a Cell?  You’re on.  Good for you says Rusev, but nobody cares.  Sasha takes the mic, and Lana snatches it back.  She says they are about the women’s revolution, they need to realize Hell in a Cell is built for men.  Sasha dropkicks Lana, and we see Charlotte and Sasha take out Rusev.  But here comes Reigns.

What will Mick Foley say about Charlotte Vs Sasha inside Hell in a Cell?

Tonight:  Paul Heyman is here to respond to Goldberg.  Also tonight, Rollins Vs Jericho.

Segment Number 2:  The New Day

They talk about the Bay area having many great pairs.  Then, there is Cesaro and Sheamus.  Cesaro is handsome, suave, sophisticated.  And Sheamus is hot garbage.  Here comes Cesaro and Sheamus.

Match Number 1:  Cesaro Vs Kofi Kingston (Raw Tag Team Champion)

Sheamus is on Facebook Live, he doesn’t watch the match, he takes Francesca II, shoves Xavier, with Big E. taking down Sheamus, and all of this distracts Cesaro, and Kofi rolls him for the win.

Winner:  Kofi Kingston (Via Pinfall)

Tonight:  Reigns and Banks Vs Charlotte and Rusev

Next:  Video footage of Goldberg on ESPN.

Match Number 2:  Bayley Vs Cami Fields.

Bayley to Belly, the match is over.  Dana Brooke lays out Bayley from behind.

Winner:  Bayley (Via Pinfall)

Segment Number 5:  Chris Jericho and R-Truth

Chris is on the phone, with Truth listening in.  Just get me that payday Jericho said.  Truth has a Payday.  He wants money.

Match Number 3:  Tony Nese and Drew Gulak Vs Lince Dorado and Sin Cara.

Sin Cara introduced himself to be a part of the Cruiserweight Division earlier tonight, and the duo of Dorado and Cara win with Dorado doing a 360 splash, pinning Gulak.

Winners:  Sin Cara and Lince Dorado (Via Pinfall)

Next:  Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon address Hell in a Cell.

Segment Number 7:  Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon Promo

Mick is wearing an incredible suit in the ring.  3 weeks from now, it’s Hell in a Cell.  And to tell you all about it right here, in Oakland, California.  Reigns Vs Rusev, for the United States Championship, inside Hell in a Cell.  Charlotte and Sasha made history last week, and they want to be in a Hell in a Cell match.  But women don’t always get what they want….they get what they deserve.  Last week’s title match was incredible, and they will get that Hell in a Cell match, because they deserve it.  Seth Rollins wants his Universal Title shot, and Seth wants it to be fair game.  So Seth gets that title shot, inside Hell in a Cell.  3 Hell in a Cell matches.

Enter Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho.  Congratulations Mick, you have done yourself this week, because that is the stupidest decision Mick made yet.  Kevin doesn’t want to be in a Hell of a Cell match.  Because he wants to have a long career, and not a washed-up GM.  He is the Universal Champion.  So Chris asks if Mick grants everyone what they want.  If they request a private jet that says Team Chris and Kevin.  Jericho tells Foley he has never liked him since they met, and he’s putting his champ at risk, he is putting Owens in jeopardy, because it can end his career, like Mick’s did.  Yes, he is.  Foley is now on THE LIST!!  Jericho asks Stephanie to take care of this guy, and Steph tells him he needs to show respect.  Seth Rollins deserves this match, and he wants a piece of Chris Jericho too.  Chris said he’d like to face that stupid idiot too.  So, tonight it will be Jericho Vs Rollins.  But Stephanie has a decision to make, after seeing No Mercy last night, and seeing Triple Threat match for the WWE World Title.  So she suggests if Jericho wins tonight, he’s added to Hell in a Cell main event to a Triple Threat match.

Segment Number 8:  Seth Rollins

Charlie Caruso is backstage with Seth, and he wants thoughts from him.  Seth is good with this, but he is going to end that plan Stephanie has by defeating Chris Jericho tonight.  Then, he gets Owens one on one inside Hell in a Cell.  But the question is how does Owens feel about this?

Tonight:  Reigns and Sasha Vs Rusev and Charlotte, and Paul Heyman address Goldberg.

Match Number 4:  Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel Vs Enzo and Cass.

The match never takes place, because Gallows and Anderson attack Enzo and Cass, and lay them both out.

Winner:  No Contest

Segment Number 10:  Curtis Axel wants a match

Curtis demands a match, he still BO-lieves in Bo, and they want a fight.

Match Number 5:  Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas Vs Sami Zayn and Neville

Neville and Sami win with the Red Arrow, Helluva Kick combination, pinning Curtis.  Bo Dallas storms off.

Segment Number 12:  Charlotte and Lana

Lana warns Charlotte to stay out of her husband’s way.

Match Number 6:  Titus O’ Neil Vs R-Truth

Goldust distracts Titus, and Truth rolls him up for the win.

Winner:  R-Truth (Via Pinfall)

Segment Number 14:  T.J. Perkins and Brian Kendrick

T.J. wants to talk with Brian, he knows the real Brian Kendrick.  He is afraid because this is his last chance.  Brian reminded T.J. he beat him last week, and T.J. said he cheated to win, and he’s better than that.  These two have history together.  Brian drove him to his matches when he was too young to drive.  Brian bought him a Nintendo 64 when it broke.  It’s not too late to be the real Brian Kendrick.  He offers a handshake, but Brian tries to attack him from behind, but T.J. counters that.

Match Number 7:  Braun Strowman Vs The Splash Brothers, Steven and Clay Splash.

Oh boy.  Braun takes care of the Splash Brothers, like Kyrie Irving hitting a clutch 3, over Steph’s head.  Byron tries to say something, but Braun wants real competition.  This is a warning to Foley, give Braun some real competition, or whatever happens will be on Foley’s hand.

Winner:  Braun Strowman (Via Pinfall)

Match Number 8:  Charlotte and Rusev Vs Sasha (Raw Women’s Champion) and Reigns (US Champion)

Winners:  Sasha Banks and Roman Reigns (Via Submission)

Earlier Tonight:  Stephanie McMahon ordered main event of tonight’s show.

If Jericho wins tonight, he is added to Hell in a Cell Triple Threat match.

Backstage Segment:  Jeri-KO

“Phil” wants to hear thoughts from Kevin Owens facing Seth Rollins, and possibly Jericho.  It doesn’t matter if it’s a singles match, or a Triple Threat match, Owens is walking out of Hell in a Cell as WWE Universal Champion.  Jericho says if one is champion, the team is champion.  Why didn’t Owens help out Jericho last week?  They talked about this earlier, if one is laid out, the other has to stay healthy.  Now get out of here.  “Phillip” doesn’t leave, SO HE JUST MADE THE LIST!!

Next:  Paul Heyman

Video:  Goldberg From ESPN

Segment Number 19:  Paul Heyman

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and I am the advocate of The Beats who adorns the cover of WWE2K17, BROCK LESNAR!!  For this he offers us this most newsworthy preview.

Video:  Preview of WWE2K17

For 12 years, everyone in the WWE Universe keeps on asking what if we could experience that dominance, even for one more night.  What if there is one more spear, what if there is one more Jackhammer.  Even for just one more night, we could experience Goldberg.  Think about it, everytime a new bad ass would come to WWE, get in the ring, we’d hear those chants of GOLD-BERG!!  He has victimized opponents, he has beaten everyone.  And you think for a moment, Goldberg’s career was running along the same lines of his client, Brock Lesnar.  And I think Goldberg is still one up on Brock Lesnar.  Which is why he is allowed to do this, on behalf of his client, Goldberg, you sir are officially challenged to go one on one with his client, Brock Lesnar.  BEAST VS MYTH.  One more time, Brock Lesnar Vs GOOOOOOLD-BERG!!  Bill Goldberg, you can listen to the WWE audience, and you can live in the fantasy of WWE2K17, where you can live in the world of being the one blemish in Brock Lesnar’s WWE career.  Because in Suplex City, you’re not Goldberg,,,,YOU’RE NEXT.

Match Number 9:  T. J. Perkins (WWE Cruiserweight Champion) Vs Ariya Daivari in a non-title match.

The Brian Kendrick was at commentary, and we saw T.J. make Ariva tap out to the Knee Bar.  In 3 weeks, at Hell in a Cell, Perkins Vs Kendrick, for the Cruiserweight Title.

Winner:  T.J. Perkins (Via Submission)

Segment Number 21:  Backstage Segment with Chris Jericho and Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie wishes Jericho luck in his match tonight.  Chris almost wrote her name on the list.  Stephanie tells him that if they get Triple Threat match at Hell in a Cell, it will outdo No Mercy.  And when you get in the cell, and you say you’re as close to Kevin as you say, you know what to do.  Kevin wants to know what that was about, Jericho said it’s about friendship.

Next week:  Goldberg will be live on Raw.

Match Number 10:  Chris Jericho Vs Seth Rollins.

Seth Rollins wins an amazing match with a roll up.  Kevin Owens had come out earlier, so when the match was over with, he came out and beat down Rollins.  Jericho helps, but Seth turns the corner, and hits a Pedigree, with the WWE Universal Champion looking from the outside, walking away from his “buddy”.  The show ends with champion and challenger looking at each other.

Winner:  Seth Rollins (Via Pinfall)

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The story of this night is the return of Goldberg.  You could miss the first 2 hours of the show, and tune in to the best part, which was Heyman, and the main event.  Everything else just didn’t do much for me, in fact, I watched this on DVR, it took me 2 days to get through the entire episode.  Way too many matches, and nothing really stood out for me, except the main event.  Share me your thoughts.
