WWE Monday Night Raw, Live From Denver, Colorado

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Commentators:  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves

Video:  Goldberg Returns Tonight!!

Tonight:  Lita’s Exclusive Interview with Charlotte and Sasha Banks.

Segment Number One:  Promo with Jeri-KO, and Seth Rollins

Y2J chants get started, but Kevin has something to say.  At this point, there is no denying anymore, Mick Foley has a vendetta against him.  Why else would he shorten his carrer defending his WWE Universal Championship against a man who doesn’t deserve a title shot.  Jericho tells us to be quiet, and he agrees that Foley has a vendetta against both men.  Being in a Hell in a Cell match is the most barbaric, destructive match in WWE history.  And to prove that Owens is in the same match that ended Foley’s career proves he is a stupid idiot.  Owens has more brain cells than Mick Foley does.  He is a thinking man’s champion, and will make sure he continues his career, and proving that he is a smarter man than Seth Rollins.  And after its said and done, it will still be The Kevin Owens Show for years to come.

Chris believes it should be Chris and Kevin show, and Chris should have been put in this match.  He can beat Seth Rollins, and look at the list of legends Chris has beaten.  Shawn Michaels to Rey Mysterio.  He beat Stone Cold and The Rock on the same night.  He beat The Undertaker for the World Title in this ring.  You can surely think he can beat Seth Rollins.  And only reason why he isn’t is because of that horrible referee.  HE’S ON THE LIST!!  At Hell in a Cell, Seth Rollins will have a swan song.  Because he has already replaced him as “The Man”, and in two weeks, Owens will retire Rollins.

And on cue, here is Rollins.  You know Chris, if you want to put something on that list, put that scarf on there.  How about those weird tattoos, goofy looking mustache, and sparkle crotch.  Chris is not sparkle crotch.  Seth just been put on the list.  If he should put something on there, he needs to put his friendship with Kevin Owens.  After all, he was pedigreed twice in a row in front of Kevin.  Chris and Kevin are still very good friends, and have talked about it last few weeks.  One of them needs to stay strong.  So, Owens stays strong, and Chris stays weak?  Chris is a 6-time World Heavyweight Champion, he is the best in the world at what he does.  You want to say why it says GOAT on his trunks?  It should say sprinkle crouch.  Jericho can beat Rollins any day of the week, and Seth thinks now is the time to do it.  But where is Kevin going to be at?  Will he just watch Chris get pedigreed again?  Chris tells us Kevin is leaving.  Owens doesn’t agree with this, and Chris tells him he needs to leave.  He knows all of the tricks, and it doesn’t change Owens is his best friend.  But he has to show the world, and this idiot who he is.  Chris Jericho, dammit.

Match Number 1:  Seth Rollins Vs Chris Jericho

Great match between the two, and we saw Owens come back out.  Jericho did have the Walls on Rollins, but Owens grabbed the ropes away from Rollins, the ref saw it, made Chris break it up.  Pedigree, pins Jericho.

Winner:  Seth Rollins (Via Pinfall)

Video:  Goldberg’s WCW debut

Tonight:  Goldberg Returns

Segment Number 3:  Lita’s interview with Charlotte

Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, HHH, and Mick Foley.  These are legends first appeared inside Hell in a Cell.  How do they feel about being the first two women to go inside Hell in a Cell.  She is a winner, always has been.  Did Charlotte take advantage of Sasha Banks at Summerslam?  Charlotte has had 12 straight PPV wins, and she is durable.  Forbes Magazine has called her the best Women’s Wrestler, she may even be the best performer, period.  Charlotte is genetically superior, it is in her blood.  Sasha needs the WWE Universe, she does not.  Sasha needs her hometown fans, she may not be 100%.  But Charlotte will, she has proven that.  At Hell in a Cell, she will prove she is better than Sasha.  Nobody will stop her.

Tonight:  Lita talks with Sasha

Match Number 2:  The Golden Truth and Mark Henry Vs The Shining Stars and Titus O’ Neil

World’s Strongest Slam, Mark Henry takes care of Titus O’ Neil, while The Shining Stars watch this.

Winners:  The Golden Truth and Mark Henry.

Next:  Big E Vs Sheamus

Segment Number 5:  Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens backstage

Jericho is upset Owens came down to the ring, he did it as a friend.  Foley wants to add some tension, so he can have his back.  Jericho told Owens not to come down, you stu….Owens tells Chris not to call him a stupid idiot, he is not just an idiot.  He is the WWE Universal Champion.  Chris is a 6-time World Champion….Stephanie McMahon interrupts them, and says they need to stay focused for Hell in a Cell.  Her brother made that challenge at Survivor Series, and she needs her two generals to get along.

Match Number 3:  Big E Vs Sheamus

Cesaro is on Facebook Live, Sheamus tells Cesaro, and the world he will use the Brogue Kick, but is rolled up by Big E. for the win.  These two teams face off in 13 days at Hell in a Cell.

Winner:  Big E. (Via Pinfall)

Video:  Goldberg Vs Hollywood Hogan

Tonight:  Goldberg Returns

Earlier Tonight:  Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel

Match Number 4:  Bo Dallas Vs Neville

These two headlined the very first NXT special on WWE Network, and Bo picks up the win rolling the dice.  Curtis Axel BOlieves, but Bo turned on Curtis.

Winner:  Bo Dallas (Via Pinfall)

Next:  Dana Brooke Vs Bayley

Match Number 5:  Dana Brooke Vs Bayley

The story of this match was Dana physically punishing Bayley, and focusing on her head.  She banged Bayley’s head on the ring apron, and picks up the win.

Winner:  Dana Brooke (Via Pinfall)

Segment Number 9:  Paul Heyman

Paul is live, via satellite at WWE Studios.  Cole asked Heyman if he believes Goldberg will accept Brock’s challenge, later tonight.  Heyman knows that Goldberg will fly out here, to accept the challenge.  But Bill, Brock doesn’t even think about you anymore.  It’s a video game, Bill.  So Heyman suggests Bill just says no.  Because if he does say yes, it will piss Brock off.  Goldberg beat him 12 years ago, and Goldberg thinks he can do it again.  The WWE Universe will chant Goldberg’s name, and we hear Goldberg chants.  Paul says that will piss off Brock too.  He will be victimized, and beat down, not be the hero in the video game you think, by Brock Lesnar.

Tonight:  Lana and Rusev has a message for Reigns

Match Number 6:  Braun Strowman Vs The Mile High Trio

I love that name Corey Graves used, so we will go with it.  A 3-on-1 Handicap match, with Braun winning with a reverse Chokeslam.  Braun demands more competition, he is going to the back and take matters into his own hand.  Here comes Sami Zayn.  Braun shoves Sami outside of the ring.  Sami wants some.

Next:  Rusev and Lana

Segment Number 11:  Sami Zayn

Charly Caruso has a moment with Sami.  Why did he challenge Braun?  Because nobody else will.

Segment Number 12:  Lana and Rusev

Rusev trimmed his beard a bit.  In 13 days time, he has an opportunity to crush Roman Reigns’ dreams, shut up with your USA Chants.  Rusev wants Lana to speak.  Her husband is not just the greatest United States Champion of all time, but as his wife, she knows he is an incredible family man, unlike us weak Americans.  Roman Reigns wants to talk about being a family man, good for you.  We know you have 9 Samoans, sitting around campfires, dipping their chicken with mayonnaise, and following everything that he does.  They put coconuts on their head, they say stupid things.  His family is civilized.  Let’s meet The Rusevs.

Video:  The Rusevs

Mama Rusev is a world-class rowing champion.  She is a strong, beautiful woman.  Lana is proud to call her Mother-in-Law.  Don’t boo Mama Rusev.  Now, its Papa Rusev.  He served in the military, and was a wrestling champion.  Now it’s brother Rusev, the best chef in all of Bulgaria.  Now it’s Grandma Rusev, who he calls Babucha.  And we even have his family dog Miguenta, who has won dog shows all over the world.  We have cousins, who play football.

Roman Reigns comes out.  Rusev was right about one thing, Roman does have a big family, but not bloodline, he’s talking about The Roman Empire.  He doesn’t look like his handsome father, he looks like the dog.  Rusev says he can disrespect anyone from his family, don’t disrespect him.  Who is he going to call?  Because in 13 days, they will be locked inside Hell in a Cell, and the only call he will make is 911.  Lana slaps him, and Rusev kicks Reigns.  Reigns takes care of Reigns, and crushes him on top of steel steps, and now Accolade on Reigns.

Tonight:  Goldberg Returns

Match Number 7:  Karl Anderson Vs Big Cass

Big Cass wins in quick fashion, hitting Sidewalk Slam, picking up the win.  How ya doin’?

Winner:  Big Cass (Via Pinfall)

Segment Number 14:

Brian Kendrick has a 6-man tag match with Drew Gulak and Tony Nese.  T.J. Perkins doubt this was legit.  Kendrick says he will do whatever it takes to survive.  Cedrick Alexander and Rich Swann has T.J.’s back,  6-man tag match is next.

Segment Number 15:  Sasha Banks

She’s been ready, they started together in NXT.  And from NXT to now, they are making history, and she does have respect for her.  But she will show she is the best.  This is real, 13 days, first two women inside Hell in a Cell.  Her back is doing well, she proved she is the woman’s champion.  Is she afraid?  Sasha knows what she got herself.  But she is trying to prepare herself for this night, and in 2 weeks, she will be making history.

Winners:  The Bryan Kendrick, Drew Gulak, and Tony Nese, (Via Submission)

Segment Number 17:  Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley

Hell in a Cell is shaping up to be a good show, but what about next week?  Mick offers a triple threat main event if Seth Rollins Vs Chris Jericho Vs Kevin Owens.

Videos:  From last two weeks.

Segment Number 18:  Goldberg

Michael Cole introduces us to the man.  Michael leaves, Goldberg is touched by his return, thanking the fans for remembering him.  Michael walks away, and gives Goldberg the floor.  12 years ladies and gentlemen.  You never say never.  So thank you for the humble return.  What makes this so special is his wife and his son get to see him live, for the first time.  Back in January, 2K and WWE asked him to come back.  He went on a tour to Germany, met some kids, and looked at him as Goldberg, a true superhero.  He had some trouble in WWE, so he thought maybe he should just leave it alone?  But then Brock challenged him to a fight.  But he used that big, fat stooge Paul Heyman to do it for him.  So what would you do?  Maybe he has one last ass kicking left in him.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

It was great to see Goldberg back tonight, and am curious to see where we go from here.  The match takes place at Survivor Series.  Next week, Brock Lesnar returns, live in Minneapolis.  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.

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

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.

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

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

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)

Video:  WWE2K17

Next:  Sasha and Reigns Vs Charlotte and Rusev

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.

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.

Video:  Hispanic Heritage Month, Tito Santana.

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.

WWE Monday Night Raw 5/30/16…John Cena Returns

Before we start the show, I want to thank the men and women who have served for our country, in the past and present.  Never forget the ones who have sacrificed to protect us.

Tonight’s Raw should be big, not only are we going to have the return of John Cena, but we also will see something “hatch” apparently.

Raw is now.

Lilian Garcia kicks the show off by giving us the 10 bell salute, for men and women who have defended our honor.

Awesome video to remind us about the ones we have lost, and to always honor the men and women, in uniform.

Tonight is the night as we get the opening theme.

We are live in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

HERE COMES THE MONEY….HERE COMES THE MONEY!!

And before Shane says anything, here comes Stephanie.

It’s a McMahon Family Reunion here.

Stephanie tells Shane let’s get this started.

WELCOME TO MONDAY NIGHT RAW!!

Steph talks, and nobody wants to listen.

What’s up Green Bay!!

Shane tells us it’s time to shake things up.  Smackdown is going live on Tuesday July 19th, on USA Network.  It’s coming to Tuesday nights.

Steph tells us that is Smackdown, but this is Raw.  Tonight, we will see the return of John Cena.

OHHHHHH TITLETOWN!!!  DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR, IT’S TIME TO CLAP FOR YOU WORLD FAMOUS 2-TIME WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!

It’s a New Day, yes it is.

New Day is excited about the move to Smackdown, live.  But as excited as they were, excitement turned to paranoia.

Social Media write-ups about brand extension.

Shane tell us there will be a unique roster for Raw and Smackdown.

The New Day is about the new era.  Kofi is new era through and through.

But Big E and Xavier are poking fun at that.

But the question everyone want to know is where are The New Day going?

Stephanie informs them they haven’t decided yet.  But New Day are accusing her of dodging the question.

You can’t possibly think about breaking up The New Day.  They are your WWE Tag Team Champions.

Shane tells them there is anything not on the table.

Hold on, there is a chance they will break up The New Day?  This can’t happen, think of the kids.  And Francesca II.  She can’t handle to be away from all 3 of her parents.

Stephanie tells them things haven’t been discussed yet.

But who runs Raw?

Who?

Who?

Who?

Steph assures them everything will work out.  But there seems to be a bit of a sibling rivalry.  But here is what they do to solve things….a dance challenge.

And now we will have our dance challenge.

Shane gives us his best dance.

Now it’s Stephanie’s turn.

She is about to dance, but here comes The Vaudevillains to ruin things.

The Vaudevillains Vs The New Day in a non-title match, next.

Gallows and Anderson attack The new Day, so Vaudevillains are DQ’d.  They come into the ring, but Vaudevillains tell them to have at it, and they nail Big E with Magic Killer.

Gallows and Anderson made a statement.

Renee Young is with Anderson and Gallows.  Gallows tell us this was a message to say they aren’t going anywhere.  Anderson reiterates they are just getting started.

We see footage from last Monday when Sheamus attacks Apollo Crews.

Apollo is doing push-ups, and someone approaches him.  It’s Big Show.  He assures Apollo he’s not here to hurt him.  Apollo wants to take out Sheamus, so Big Show tries to give him some advice.

Sheamus is afraid to lose his spot.  Sheamus feels Apollo will back down.  So the question is will Apollo back down?

Golden Truth come out together.

The Usos will compete against Breezango.

The Golden Truth are doing commentary.

The Usos win in a pointless match.

Breezango blame The Golden Truth, now all four men start to fight.

We need Gallows and Anderson to come out, and beat the shit out of all four men here.

8 days ago, Seth Rollins made his return.  In 3 weeks, it will be Rollins Vs Reigns, at Money in the Bank.

We will hear from the WWE World Champion, next.

The crowd is mixed here, yet again for Roman.

2 years ago, Seth Rollins sold out, and broke up The Shield.

Ever since then, he has called himself THE man.  But that is funny since he runs away from THE guy every single time, and he has the title to prove he is THE guy.

So if you want to prove you are THE man, come on out, and prove it.

Here comes Seth Rollins, running to the ring, but he thinks twice about it.

Seth has the mic, thinks about saying something, but he decides not to.

Now he is charging to the ring, and again stops.  Laughing at Roman, it will be on his time.  Not Roman’s.

Seth walks away again.

Drops the mic again, and walks away.

3 weeks, we see these two men face off.

Seth charges again, but Roman is ready for him.  Seth screams they do things his way.

John Cena is here tonight.

6-man tag match of all 6 men involved in Money in the Bank ladder match.

Goldberg is a part of the new WWE2K17 game.

Lana is here to introduce us to a “Real American Hero”, and the greatest United States Champion, Rusev.

Rusev Vs Zack Ryder is now.

Rusev wins the match with an Accolade.

Rusev calls himself a better American Hero than any of us.  And here comes Titus O’ Neil.

Titus dares Rusev saying this, on this day….Memorial Day.  Great Americans fight for what they believe in.  He isn’t a Bulgarian brute, he is a Bulgarian chump.  So if he wants to fight, let’s fight.

Titus decks Rusev, and Rusev gets out of the ring.

Next, we see footage from last week, when Charlotte threw her father out of her ring.

The announcers are beside themselves over Charlotte’s actions.

Earlier today, Stephanie catches up with Charlotte.  She is embarrassed with what Charlotte did last week.  Charlotte isn’t stepping down with her, while Steph calls her a waste of talent.

Tonight, Natalya Vs Dana Brooke, one on one.

Another commercial break.

Enzo and Big Cass come out to the ring.

My name is Enzo Amore.  I am a certified G, and a bona-fide stud, and you can’t teach that.  And this man is Big Cass, he’s 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.

Bada Boom, the realest guys in room, how ya doin??

They want some of the Dudleys.

How ya doin?

The Dudley Boyz Vs Enzo and Cass is now.

Enzo and Cass win the match with a Rocket Launcher, pinning Bubba.

Zayn, Ambrose, and Cesaro are talking about strategy.

John Cena returns, next.

The Champ is here.

Cena is very grateful to be back home.  But on this day, it is his duty to honor the heroes who have fallen, and protected our country.

Liberty is freedom, and freedom is our livelihood.  It gives us the honor to cheer for who we want, stand up for what we believe in, dress how we want, and act how we want.  And it is a privilege to say Cena is back on Monday Night Raw.

But this means if he still belongs.  A new era has begun, which means new names, new faces.  So the question is can he still hang with them?  He won’t just roll over, and go away.  Cena will not go quietly away.  And the face that runs this place says this, if the future is now, then the future must go through him.

Enter AJ Styles.

The crowd is half for AJ, and half for Cena.

It is a cool moment here.

AJ has been waiting for this moment his entire life.

AJ said Cena has sort of bad rep, he has been told Cena is always the first into the arena, and the last to leave.  And he has done so much for this company, but here is the thing.  They have been in two different worlds, but here they stand in this ring together.  AJ wanted to be the first to say welcome back.

Cena is hesitant about shaking hands with AJ, but he does.

But here comes Anderson and Gallows.

AJ, as Gallows says, they agreed to go their separate ways.  And he saw what they did to The New Day.  But AJ is sucking up to Cena.

Anderson said they are not here to kiss ass, they are here to kick it.  And that includes AJ.

AJ takes his shirt off, and so does Cena, but AJ turns on Cena, and he is a part of The Club all along.

The Club unites together.

AJ wants him some more, with Gallows and Anderson approve.

Moments ago, we see AJ turn his back on John Cena and laid him out.

Natalya Vs Dana Brooke, now.

Charlotte comes out with Dana.

Dana wins a 3 minute match with a Minshinuko Driver.

They now attack Natalya, and here comes Becky Lynch.

Jo-Jo is with Dolph Ziggler.

We see footage of his match with Baron Corbin at Extreme Rules Kick-Off match.

Ziggler said that Corbin got the best of him, but not the best in him.  When he was a kid, he got into amateur wrestler, and he broke records at Kent State Universe.  Dean Malenko had 1,004 moves, Ziggler has 1,005 moves.  Dolph is the one who steals the show, because he is Dolph Ziggler, and Corbin is not.

Ziggler vs Corbin is next.

We have an amateur wrestling match, but Ziggler kicks Corbin in the balls, causing a DQ.

Ziggler tells us he is DQ’d, and the loser always is Baron Corbin.

6-man tag match is our main event.

The Miz is currently on location, filming The Marine 5:  Battleground, and he will give us updates throughout the weeks.

Jericho, Del Rio, and Owens are talking about who the leader of the match is.

This Thursday night, we will see Charlotte face Becky Lynch.  We will also hear from The Club, this Thursday night on Smackdown.

6-man tag match is now.

Ambrose, Zayn, and Cesaro win when Ambrose pins Owens with Dirty Deeds.

The show ends rather quickly here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Not much here tonight, except seeing Cena back in the WWE, and AJ aligning himself with The Club, setting up a feud against Cena, which makes everyone happy.

Other than that, I hope you had a safe Memorial Day.
