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.

Video:  Goldberg Vs The Rock in 2003

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.

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.

Segment Number 1:  Roman Reigns, Rusev, And Lana

Roman’s blood line has been here in WWE for a long time, but they have never been United States Champion, but Roman is THE guy.  And Lana enters.  She came out here to talk to Roman, but her husband doesn’t know.  Roman says how ya’ doin?  Lana is here to negotiate.  Her husband is challenging Roman to a United States Championship.  Roman isn’t impressed, and says Rusev is hiding behind Lana’s skirt, while Lana does all of the work.  Rusev is Lana’s husband, he is family.  Roman has zero respect for family, because he came out here, and tried to destroy her wedding celebration.  Lana tells Roman to hide that stupid smile you stupid boy.  Her husband will come out, and crush him in front of all these people, and in front of his family.  Reigns tells Lana to send for her husband and tell it to his face.  Lana says you go to hell.  But here comes Rusev.  The two men start to fight in the aisle.  Rusev sends Reigns over the barricade with his boot.  Rusev holds the United States Championship, and takes it.  Possession is 9 tenths of the law.  But Reigns from behind, with the Superman Punch, knocking out Rusev.  Reigns is taking Rusev and Lana to hell, inside Hell in a Cell.

Next:  Exclusive Interview with Seth Rollins.

Segment 3:  Exclusive Interview With Seth Rollins

Michael Cole asks Seth about what happened at Clash of the Champions.  Seth admits he got caught in the wrong position, but he still works harder than anyone.  Kevin Owens and Seth have one thing in common, being HHH’s man.  But Kevin is always at the right place, he doesn’t work half as hard as Seth.  Cole asks him how it feels to be replaced by Kevin Owens.  You can’t replace Seth Rollins.  Kevin is just a cog in the machine, like Seth was.  But now Seth has wide opens, and he will take out that cog in the machine, and it begins with taking the WWE World Title from Owens.  Cole asks him about Jericho coming out to cost Seth at Clash of Champions.  Everything was done at the right time.  And Stephanie just shows up, to send another referee.  But when Seth gets the next title shot, he will cancel The Kevin Owens Show, at any cost.

Confirmed:  Reigns Vs Rusev, inside Hell in a Cell.

Segment Number 6:  Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho

The WWE World Champion comes out with his best buddy, Chris Jericho.  Owens just watched that interview Seth Rollins had with Cole, and what he got from it is if Rollins was smart, he’d get some rest from those bruised ribs the doctor told him to do, but he is a stupid idiot.  He wants a rematch for the WWE World Title, but what has he done to deserve it?  He lost the match, and he has one person to blame, Kevin Owens.  Because he is standing here with the WWE Universal Championship.  Another question we may have is why Chris Jericho is standing in the ring here?  Jericho answers they are best friends.  That is true, but that’s not why Owens asked him here.  Owens brings up the ref costs Seth the match, so Owens asks Jericho to be the special guest ref, if Seth gets the title rematch.  Jericho agrees to it, but he proposes after winning their big match over Enzo and Cass, they should go after the WWE Tag Team Titles.  Owens agrees they are a great tag team, but he says Cesaro and Sheamus are Number One Contenders, so they wouldn’t get Tag Title shots anyway.  Jericho counters, they can win against New Day, then go after Tag Titles.  Besides, Sheamus and Cesaro aren’t best friends anyway.  Owens says he is busy being WWE Universal Champion, and Jericho brings up it’s not like he is asking for Universal Title shot.  Owens pauses, but agrees to this, and that leads to…..

OHHHHHHH L.A. IT’S TIME TO STAND UP AND CLAP FOR YOUR WORLD FAMOUS 2-TIME WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS….IT’S A NEW DAY, YES IT IS.

They bring up friendship, nobody has friendship like New Day.  Kofi just made the list.  Big E. starts singing, and he suggests they have a champion huddle.  Owens can get involved, but not Jericho.  He’s not a champion.  Jericho confirms Big E. has made the list.  Xavier laughs about this, and he just made the list.  Champion huddle, and Owens talks about how they promote kids to eat questionable things.  They also jumped the shark earlier about 7 months ago.  Xavier answers they don’t swim, and Kevin hasn’t jumped anything in years.  Xavier made the list again.  Xavier accepts their challenge, and says they will never be the WWE Tag Team Champions, because New Day Rocks!!

Segment Number 14:  Stephanie McMahon and Seth Rollins

Seth is not medically cleared yet, he never should have been in the ring.  Stephanie admits Rollins is all alone for the first time his WWE career.  No Shield, no Authority.  And he will find out he is replaceable, just like everybody else.  You don’t get it, Rollins stopped listening the night HHH stabbed Rollins in the back.  It’s the second biggest mistake he ever done.  What’s the first?  Marrying Steph.  Ouch!!  If she doesn’t give Seth his title rematch, he will make her life a living hell, and he will take care of her, Owens, and Chris Jericho.

WWE Monday Night Raw 9/12/16….Reigns Vs Owens

We are 13 days away from Clash of the Champions.  Tonight, the main event will be sealed, one way or the other.  Reigns Vs Owens, and if Reigns wins, he will be added to the main event, in a Triple Threat match.

Raw is in 10 minutes.

Last week on Raw….The Kevin Owens Show began, but here comes Roman Reigns.

Reigns Vs Owens, tonight.

We are live in Baltimore, Maryland.  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

Tonight, Kevin Owens Vs Roman Reigns.

Mick Foley is in the ring.

Clash of the Champions, the first Raw exclusive PPV will be in 2 weeks, and we will find out if Kevin Owens defends his WWE Universal Championship against Seth Rollins, or Roman Reigns added.

He talks about last night’s Backlash PPV, we saw the first Smackdown Women’s Champion being crowned, congratulations to Becky Lynch.  But Raw still has the premiere women’s division, and the Women’s Champion is Charlotte.

Last week, Bayley pinned the Women’s Champion, and Charlotte slapped Dana Brooke.  Sasha Banks informs Dan Brooke that Sasha is ready to get her rematch, at Clash of the Champions.

We come back live.

Charlotte tells us someone owes an apology.  Not Mick Foley.  Dana Brooke tells Charlotte that she doesn’t owe an apology.  But Charlotte tells Dana owes Charlotte an apology.

She cost Charlotte the match last week against Bayley, in fact she is talking to the officials about changing the ruling so Dana lost to Bayley, and not Charlotte.  And Dana decided to think for herself, and she tapped out to the Bank Statement, so she needs to apologize, or else lose her spot.

Mick wants to talk about Clash of the Champions, but here comes “The Boss”.

Sasha tells Charlotte she is the face of the WWE Women’s Division, and she is the only legit “Boss” of WWE.  At Clash of the Champions, that Women’s title is coming back home.

Here comes Bayley.

She wants to see Sasha get her revenge, but she beat the Women’s Champion last week, so that title shot, maybe should go to her.

Sasha tells Bayley they have some history at NXT, and she helped her awhile back, but in this women’s division, she has no friends.  Bayley will take a back seat.

Charlotte tells Sasha she doesn’t dictate about who she defends her title with, Mick corrects her and says he does.  But Sasha, she said she had her rematch at Clash of the Champions, but he is having second thoughts.

Why?

So, we will decide who Charlotte faces at Clash of the Champions, and Dana suggests Mick we should have another Best of 7 Series with Sasha and Bayley.

Mick tells us it will be Sasha Banks Vs Bayley….

Charlotte degrades Dana again, and Dana slaps Charlotte.

Mick makes this a Triple Threat match, with Dana being added, and the winner faces Charlotte at Clash of the Champions.

That match is next.

Sasha rolls up Bayley after she hit Dana with a Bayley to Belly.

It’s official, Sasha Banks Vs Charlotte, at Clash of the Champions.

Tonight, Match 5 of Best of 7 Series with Cesaro Vs Shamus.  Also tonight, Owens Vs Reigns.  If Reigns wins, he is added to the Universal Title match at Clash of the Champions.

We come back, and see Dana Brooke backstage.  She apologizes to Charlotte, the Women’s Champ doesn’t want to hear it, orders Dana to grab her luggage.

Shining Stars try to sell R-Truth some timeshare in Puerto Rico, but Goldust stops him.

Enzo and Big Cass want to challenge them to a rematch, after they cheated to win last week.  It is on.

Tom Phillips is with WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens.

Owens is not here to give “Terry” any quotes, such as Roman Reigns is never, nor will he be on the same level as Owens, and that the only reason why Mick Foley is stacking the deck against him is because he knows deep down he will never be the same superstar as his mentor HHH.  But he wouldn’t do that, and give Todd the satisfaction.

Chris Jericho shows up and informs us Kevin Owens was going to be Chris’ guest on the Highlight Reel, but Mick Foley nixed that.  So he is going to have Kevin’s ex-friend Sami Zayn on instead, and show the world the real kind of person Sami is.

A stupid id-it.

Bo Dallas is set for a squash, next.

A more serious Bo Dallas will face Brandon Scott, now.

Bo wins with roll the dice.

Bo BO-lieves in Bo.

Highlight Reel is next.

It’s time for the gift of Jericho.

This was supposed to be the greatest Highlight Reel, with a man who is so great Tom Cruise could play him in his movie.  Then again, so could Brad Pitt.  But this is the longest reigning WWE Universal Champion in WWE history, talking about Kevin Owens.  He had to go so high, so how do you change things?  By going lowest to the low, someone who used to be Kevin Owens’ friend, Sami Zayn.

Sami thanks Chris for that glowing introduction.  Jericho says what is he supposed to say?   Ole, Ole, Ole?

Crowd loves that.

But what else is he supposed to say?  Sami used to be Kevin’s best friend, he doesn’t even have his new phone number.  But Chris has it.

Sami wants to know why he is here.

Chris wonders why they aren’t friends anymore.  Owens doesn’t even look at him anymore backstage.  Chris knows it’s not because of Kevin, so maybe it’s because of Sami.

The only thing Sami wants from Kevin is the WWE Universal Championship, and he will get that from him. If Chris truly believes Kevin is Jericho’s best friend, he truly is a stupid idiot.

Jericho gives us all the gift of Jericho, and Sami cuts him off, and he says if he truly thinks Kevin doesn’t think of anything but himself, Chris is delusional.  Where is the real Chris Jericho?

Chris is the reason why Sami got into this business.  Guys like Chris, Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero.  Guys who have paved the way for guys like Sami.  Chris is a 6-time WWE World Champion, he was the first Undisputed World Champion, and now all he sees is Kevin Owens’ bitch.

Chris tells Sami he just had a message from Kevin earlier, and you want to know what he said?

Chris slaps Sami, and gave him the Code Breaker.

Tonight, Reigns Vs Chris Jericho’s best friend, Kevin Owens.

But next, Best of 7 Series, Cesaro Vs Sheamus.

Cesaro Vs Sheamus, with Sheamus leading 3-1 in Best of 7 Series is now.

Cesaro win the match, hooking the ropes.

Sheamus is up 3-2.

Seth Rollins is with Mick Foley.  He is confused about why Mick put Reigns in this match tonight, to give him a chance at the championship at Clash of Champions.

He doesn’t want any distraction for his title match, which is why he doesn’t want Roman in the match.  Maybe we can check with Stephanie.  She is in Singapore.  If this match takes place, maybe we should question Mick’s integrity.

Mick is irate over this, and he says he can say anything he wants about Steph, just don’t question his integrity.

Seth said he never would, but if he continues to believe in Stephanie, a former WWE Champion, former Hardcore legend, it won’t matter, because Mick will be proven a fool.

Jericho Vs Zayn is set for Clash of Champions.

Alicia Fox Vs Nia Jax is up now.

Nia tells Tom she will beat the crap out of Alicia Fox, whether she gives up, or she doesn’t get up.

The match ends in a no contest when Nia speared Alicia through the barricade.  An awesome sighting.  Officials came out to check on Alicia.

We are live in the Royal Farms Arena, in Baltimore, Maryland.

We see what we just saw, Nia Jax speared Alicia Fox through the barricade.

AHHHHH B-MORE, DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR….STAND UP AND CLAP YOUR HANDS TOGETHER.  IT’S A NEW DAY, YES IT IS!!

360 days as WWE Tag Team Champions, and counting.

New Day put their Tag Team Titles on the line at Clash of Champions against Gallows and Anderson.

Last week, Gallows and Anderson, the cool guys who are about too seat tried to be entertaining.

That is their thing, and DON’T touch their thing.

We have footage from last week’s Old Day footage.

Sike!!  We won’t make you suffer through that again.

They wasted your time, 5 minutes, and 37 seconds, we could have done a lot of things.

So, in short, they want to apologize for Gallows and Anderson wasting their time, and that won’t happen again, because they are our WWE World Tag Team Champions.

Here comes the “fun” group, Anderson and Gallows.

Really?  They pander to a stupid crowd like Baltimore.  They talks about Booty-O’s, and wear those stupid unicorn heads, and they waste their time?

At Clash of Champions, they will take those stupid unicorn heads and take their Tag Team Champions.

Summerslam Rematch here, with Gallows and Anderson Vs Kofi and Xavier.

Gallows and Anderson win with Magic Killer, in 13 days these teams face off at Clash of Champions.

Tom Phillips approaches Reigns about his thoughts for tonight’s match.

He’s only thinking about getting into the Universal Title match, ad becoming the Universal Champion.

Only way he can do that is kick KO’s ass.

The Cruiserweight Division arrives on Raw next week.

Jinder Mahal is the “Man who comes in peace”.

Jinder hasn’t had the chance to explain why he was gone.  He has had hate for a while, but he has learned to let that all go.  He has been in the Himalayas, he has visited in monasteries.  But he has found peace, and he wants to share it with us.

Jack Swagger is his opponent.

Jinder Mahal with the win, hitting a Neckbreaker.

Enzo and Cass are in action, next.

Tom Phillips wants some thoughts from Jack Swagger.  His Raw contract is expiring soon.

Swagger just breathes hard, and walks away.

His name is Enzo Amore, and he’s a certified G, and a bonafide stud.  And you can’t teach that.

This guy here is Big Cass, and he is 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.

Badda bing, they are the realest guys in the room…

HOW YA DOIN’?

Shining Stars, there is only one word to describe you, and he will spell it out for ya.

S.A.W.F.T.

Shining Stars win, by holding on to the ropes.

Owens Vs Reigns is next.

Owens walks by, and Rollins approaches him.  He gives him advice on beating Roman Reigns.

Owens doesn’t need luck, and he talks about how he thought he wanted Roman in the match, so he can help him.  Seth always has someone do his help, but Seth sneaks in with the win.  Or wait a second, he’s upset because HHH doesn’t back him anymore, because now he realizes there is someone better.

Ever since Seth came back from his injury, he has failed.  He failed to win the title for Raw, and he failed to win the title a few weeks ago.  Yet Owens took one chance to win this.  So Rollins’ new phrase should be Regroup, Rebuild, Fail.

Foley cuts this off, and tells Owens his match is now, and warns Seth if he tries something, there will be consequences.

Owens Vs Reigns is now.

Rollins comes out, and causes the DQ, going after Owens.

An irate Mick Foley tells Rollins he needs to listen to him, and now they will have a talk.  He restarts the match, and here we go.

With Rusev’s help to distract Reigns, Owens wins the match with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

Clash of Champions is still Rollins Vs Owens.

Rusev is alone with Reigns.

Rusev hits a kick in the head, and ends this with an Accolade.  Lana is looking on admiring this, and we end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The show was okay, but you have to love the ending.  Rusev gets the revenge he deserves, with the disrespect Reigns gave Rusev’s wife, Lana.

Clash of Champions is setting up to be a good PPV.  I loved tonight’s Highlight Reel too, and am looking forward to seeing Sami Vs Jericho.

And now with Swagger’s Raw contract expiring, perhaps he is the next guy WWE could rebuild on Smackdown, like they did with Heath Slater?

Share me your thoughts on the show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/22/16….Summerslam After Party

Tonight, the city of Brooklyn is treated to night 3 of WWE.  After last night’s Summerslam, a lot of news breaks down about injuries to key players.

One of them is new, and first Universal Champion Finn Balor.  He hurt his shoulder, and may need surgery.  So we expect him to give up his title tonight.  That means Clash of Champions might prove to be more important than originally thought.

Sasha Banks also was hurt last night, and she could be out a few months.

And Randy Orton received after his war with Brock Lesnar.

Is “The Beast Incarnate” in the house tonight?

Raw in 10 minutes.

Footage from last night’s Summerslam kicks the show off.

We are live in Brooklyn, New York, at the Barclays Center.  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

Finn Balor is injured, and will need shoulder surgery.  It happened, when Seth hits the Powerbomb through the barricade.

Balor actually popped his shoulder back in place, to finish the match.  He will be out at least 6 months.

Mick Foley tweeted that he will accept Finn to relinquish the Universal Championship.

Stephanie and Mick are in the ring now, and here comes Finn Balor.

This Championship represents a lifetime of sacrifice.  And it also represents if you believe in yourself, you can accomplish anything.  Last night, he became the WWE Universal Champion.  But there was a sacrifice.

Finn wants to thank the WWE for this opportunity.  He wants to thank all the talent in the back.  He wants to thank Seth Rollins, for giving him the match of his life.  But most importantly, Finn wants to thank the fans.

But for now, he has to relinquish this title.  But rest assured, when Finn is healthy, fit, and ready, he will be back.  And this title is the first thing he is coming for.

He hands it over to Mick.

Enter Seth Rollins.

Seth is smiling, as he walks past Finn.

What a shame guy, what a pity.  But let’s not live in the past.  Now we know who the true champion was last night.  It’s time for a celebration.

He and Stephanie have been involved in some classic celebrations.  Seth is here, Steph is here, this beautiful, newly designed Championship title is here, so let’s reward Seth as the champion, and all celebrate.

But here comes Sami Zayn.

Sami beat Seth a few weeks ago.

But here comes the victorious Chris Jericho.  He has his scarf too.

Here comes Kevin Owens, he deserves a title shot.

Enter Enzo and Cass.  How ya doin’?

Lord, here comes Roman Reigns, he hasn’t even won many matches lately.

Mick Foley is speaking, this is how things will go.  We will conduct a series of matches that will determine who the new Universal Champion is the next week.

We kick the show off with Sami Zayn Vs Seth Rollins.

Rollins wins the match with a Pedigree, after Sami hurt his ankle, selling it throughout the match.

Rollins moves on to next week for a chance at the Universal Title.

Tonight, we will see a special look on Brock Lesnar giving Orton a TKO.

Another match is set.  It will be Kevin Owens Vs Neville.

Owens wins the match with a Rolling Neckbreaker.  He advances to the match next week.

Next week’s Universal Championship match will be a Fatal 4-Way.

It will be Big Cass Vs Rusev tonight, and Reigns Vs Jericho.

But next, it’s The New Day.

OHHHHHH BROOKLYN!!!  DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR, AND CLAP FOR YOUR 2-TIME WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS.

IT’S A NEW DAY, YES IT IS!!

Big E is back, baby!!

A wise man once said speak softly, and carry a big stick.  Big E. can only have one, and he talks loud.  He is back, BABY!!

Kofi tells us the magic is back, and those magic numbers are 365, because for 365 days, they have been our WWE Tag Team Champions!!!

Kofi wants to thank us, because you want to know who was responsible for them?

Who?

Who?

Who?

They were vocal, through the good times, and the bad times.

Xavier tells us they have a unicorn pinata, and it is filled with Booty O’s.  Booty- O’s, they make sure you’re not booty.

Anderson and Gallows show up, and says this is stupid.

New Day, this is stupid.  Brooklyn, you are stupid.  Anderson asks if they are really celebrating?  What are they celebrating?  They still lost the match.

Gallows said they are owed a WWE Tag Team Title rematch.  And Kofi is the stupidest.  Kofi talks about magic?  Did he enjoy the magic killer he received last night?

Big E. defend Kofi.

He has nothing, and Gallows agrees.  They have nothing, because the props they have won’t help them when Gallows and Anderson win the WWE Tag Team Titles.  And it starts tonight, when Anderson beats Big E.

Big E. has had enough, because they will show them why New Day rocks.

Anderson Vs Big E. is next.

Big E. wins the match with a Big Ending.  Does someone want to tell me again why Anderson and Gallows deserve Tag Title shot, with this loss?

The Dudley Boyz will say goodbye, tonight.

We see their first appearance on Smackdown in 1999.

Titus O’ Neil is in the ring.

Earlier tonight, we heard about The New Day becoming Tag Team Champions last summer, here in Brooklyn.  But what we forgot were The Primetime Players were Tag Team Champions, going in.  So every time he is in Brooklyn, he gets asked the same question, was that the last day of his life?  No, because when he flashes that million dollar smile, it was the best day of his life, because he dropped the weight that was Darren Young.

There wouldn’t be a Darren Young without Primetime Players.  And how is Bob Backlund going to teach Darren Young to be great, when Bob has done nothing great himself?

Titus could be Universal Champion if it wasn’t for Darren Young.  So come on out, and be great again Darren.

He doesn’t come out, and says Bob Backlund doesn’t want him to come out.

Crowd wants Slater.

Who is Bob Backlund anyway?

And here comes Bob Backlund, with a Crossface Chicken Wing, but Titus escapes, and slam Backlund.

Darren comes out, Clash of the Titus on Darren Young.

Next, Summerslam TKO.  Footage from Orton Vs Lesnar last night.

Last night, Lesnar beat Orton through a TKO, and he gave Shane McMahon a F-5.

Tom Phillips is with Stephanie.  Last night, Brock Lesnar crossed the line, and there will be repercussions.

Last night, Finn Balor hurt his shoulder from his match with Seth Rollins.  He pinned Seth to become the first WWE Universal Champion.  Earlier tonight, Finn had to relinquish the Universal Title.

Now, another qualifying match with Rusev Vs Big Cass.

Big Cass wins by count out.  I hate that ending.  Rusev’s bruised ribs were killing him, and he does not look good here at all.

Big Cass advances to Fatal 4-Way match next week.

Tom Phillips is with Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho.

Tom asks Kevin and Chris what happens if they both are in the Fatal 4-Way match.

That’s a stupid question Phillipe, but Chris will be a great Universal Champion.  Now they bicker about this, both say they will be the winner.

Roman Reigns will get his tonight.  Get what?

IT….YOU STUPID IDIOT.

Charlotte, the new Women’s Champion is next.

Charlotte comes out with Dana Brooke.

Dana mocks the You Deserve It chant.

Charlotte tell us she is the most dominant woman in the world.  You can forget about Serena Williams.  You can forget about the Simone Bliss.  You can also forget about Sasha Banks, and proved she is all flash, and no cash.

Charlotte is money, and she did this by herself.  She didn’t need her father, she didn’t need Dana.  She did it by herself.  And Sasha will never get her title shot again.  And Sasha, if you’re sitting at home watching this, she is here to say The Queen has regained her throne.

Here comes Mick Foley.

Mick wants to congratulate Charlotte.  They tore the house down, and last night, she was the better woman.  Foley has talked to “The Boss”, and when she comes back from her back injury, she will get her rematch.

Charlotte tells Mick that if she comes back, she will break her back again.  Charlotte deserves the night off.  There is nobody worthy of a match against her.

This is one of the best moments of his job, because he and Stephanie just talked about this, and they just signed the hottest free agent in the women’s division….

IT’S BAYLEY!!

She can’t believe this is really happening.  The crowd chants she deserves it.

She has been waiting for this moment her entire life.  So how about they make this a moment by giving each other a hug.

Right here in Brooklyn, New York.

This is your hottest free agent Mick?  There is a reason Bayley is being left behind in the Diva Revolution.  Now she wants to upstage Charlotte?

Bayley respects Charlotte, so she would never try to upstage her.  But she will challenge her for the Women’s Championship.

Oh sweet Bayley, you think this is the place where she can just talk about how this is the biggest opportunity for her?  She needs to step in line with everyone else.  Charlotte isn’t dressed to compete, but Dana is.

So it’s Dana Vs Bayley, next.

Bayley picks up the win with a Bayley to Belly.

Roman Reigns is approached by Tom Phillips.  Tonight, he will shut Jericho’s mouth, either with the scarf, or with his fist.

Jericho Vs Reigns tonight, winner advances to Fatal 4-Way match.

Last night, Cesaro and Sheamus had their first match of Best of 7 Series, and Sheamus won.

Andrea is with Sheamus.

Next week, match two of Sheamus Vs Cesaro takes place.

People are counting on Cesaro, but he always lets them down.  He can join the Yankees, the Mets, the Giants, the Jets, the Knicks, and that other basketball team, unlike them, Sheamus will be a winner.

Braun Strowman is set to destroy Johnny Knockout.

Reverse Chokeslam, match is done.

He hits another Reverse Chokeslam, and demands another three count.

The Dudley Boyz are set to say goodbye, next.

Raw from last year, their return to Raw.

Here come The Dudley Boyz.

ECW chants in Brooklyn.

Bubba doesn’t get very emotional, but tonight might be different.

One year ago, in this very arena, in this very ring, in this very city.  The pyro went off, The Dudley Boyz kicked some ass, and put people through tables.

Through the ups and down this year, some wins, some losses, you people loved them, they hated them, but respect was always there, because they busted their asses for us.

D-Von said it’s been a hell of a year, it’s been a hell of a career.  He has been up and down with this very man, creating history.  Like the TLC matches, which some still say are the best match of all-time.  Creating history with guys like Edge and Christian, and The Hardy Boyz.

Delete!!  Delete!!  chants.

D-Von would do this all over again.  Bubba Ray wants the fans to stand up, and applaud for themselves.  Bubba said you get to go out in your own terms, and while things didn’t go their way, they still went out on their own terms.  Thank you.

Here come The Shining Stars.

Primo says it’s about time they leave, they have been washed-up.  And Primo and Epico have been saying…

We Want Tables chants.

There will be no tables tonight.

Since they are leaving, Epico and Primo have a special gift for them.  Two economy tickets to Puerto Rico.

But with all the free time they have, they get to offer all of the wonderful things Puerto Rico has to offer.

So Dudley Boyz, take the tickets, take the tables, and come to Puerto Rico….

They blasted them, time for a 3-D.

And a What’s Up?

D-Von….GET THE TABLE!!

Anderson and Gallows attack the Dudley Boyz.

Magic Killer right on the floor.

Magic Killer right through the table, on D-Von.

Wow, we will have a match with these two teams.

Coming up next, Reigns Vs Jericho, winner goes on to Fatal 4-Way match next week, for the WWE Universal Title match.

Despite Kevin Owens’ help, Roman Reigns speared Jericho to win, and advance to the Fatal 4-Way match next week, for the Universal Championship.

A good ending sequence though, and Reigns ends Raw celebrating.

Next week, it will be Owens Vs Rollins Vs Reigns Vs Big Cass.

Raw ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A good show tonight, and it made these matches feel important.  The moment of the night belonged to Bayley.  Finally making her Raw debut.

Just a shame to Finn Balor, but it made tonight feel more important.

Dudley Boyz Vs Gallows and Anderson is a match I’d love to see, and it looks like we will get to see it.

Not sure what they are doing, making Rusev look foolish lately, after Reigns disrespected his wife, and he never truly got his revenge.  Maybe next week, Rusev ruins Reigns chances at the title?

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me.

Tonight, Apollo has an opportunity to become the new IC Champion.

Tom Phillips is with Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens.

Chris apologized for getting Tom’s name wrong.  Sorry Phillip.

He also has to apologize to Enzo Amore for saying he couldn’t be a certified G.  He googled it, and saw you can be a certified G for $89.99.  So he has a certified G.

He’s talking about chemistry, something you can’t teach.

KO said you can, he had a 96 in chemistry in high school.  But not that chemistry, Jericho and Owens has a bond.  And they will take out the two hometown boys.  Enzo will get home, and see his father is crying, and his mother is wearing a Kevin Owens T-shirt.

And they will teach something else, IT.

JBL, Mauro Ranallo, and David Otunga are ready to call for the 12-man tag match.

The Vaudevillains, The Ascension, and Breezango Vs Hype Bros, The Usos, and American Alpha.

He could very well be a dangerous opponent for Dean Ambrose.

We can still post questions for “The Boss” with Sasha being a guest in the Social Media Lounge.

Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves join us for the show.

Brooklyn’s own Enzo and Cass begin the show.

My name is Enzo Amore, and I am 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 cats in the room, how ya doin?

This match is dedicated to all the teachers who told them they’d never make anything of themselves.  Dedicated to the ones tryin’ to make money for the kids, so they can eat food for dinner.  How ya doin’?

This is a dream, and that dream will become a reality.  How ya doin’?

There was once this man named Blue Eyes who sang to New York, saying if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere, how ya doin’?

They are ready for JeriKO.

And Cass tell us there is one word to describe them, and he’ll spell it out for us.

S.A.W.F.T.

Tag team match is set, Enzo and Cass Vs JeriKO.

JeriKO win the match, when Owens launched Jericho into a Code Breaker.

Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan run into Mick Foley.  And they are greeted by Jon Stewart and his son.  Stephanie McMahon runs into all of them.

New Day interrupt the fun, telling us we all need to use the power of positivity.

Next, Women’s Championship is on the line.  Sasha Banks Vs Charlotte.

Charlotte wins the match, and the title when she rolled Sasha up, and pinned her, even when Sasha had the Bank Statement on Charlotte.

An incredible match here between the two women.  We even saw a Razor’s Edge off the top rope.

Charlotte is now a 2-time Women’s Champion.

A moment with The Club.

Doctor to Doctor to Phenomenal.

And they run into Finn Balor.

Hmmmm.

Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga welcome us to their portion of the show.

The Miz Vs Apollo Crews, for the Intercontinental Championship is now.

The Miz retains his IC Title with a Skull Crushing Finale.

John Cena Vs AJ Styles is up now.

AJ Styles just beat John Cena, clean with a Styles Clash and a Phenomenal Forearm.

What an incredible match, and what a statement.  Styles kicked out of the Super AA, and Cena was beside himself, trying to figure out what to do.  Styles escaped from another AA, and picked up the clean win.

Incredible!!

Cena took off his armband, and put it in the middle of the ring, and saluted the crowd.  What a moment.

Footage from the two fans who won the Cricket Wireless WWE sweepstakes.

Oh lord, time for Jon Stewart.  Why?

Jon keeps talking, and nobody cares.

Jon is an honorary member of New Day, taking the place of Big E.

WWE Tag Team Championship match is now.  New Day Vs Gallows and Anderson.

New Day are DQ’d when Big E. comes back, and kicks Anderson and Gallows’ asses.

Big E. takes a swig of the balls jar, and spits it out.

New Day are still Tag Team Champions.

They saved Jon Stewart.

Ziggler Vs Ambrose, for the WWE World Championship is up now.

Ambrose wins the match, retains his title with Dirty Deeds.

A bit of a short match, and the crowd did not seem to care too much.

Footage from WWE Week in New York.

6-Woman tag match is up now.  Naomi, Becky Lynch, and Carmella Vs Natalya, Alexa Bliss, and ???

Nikki Bella.

So she is a heel, again.

Nikki, Nattie, and Alexa win with a Rack Attack.  Nikki pins Carmella.

Still 2 title matches are left, and the big match.  But we see segment from last week on Raw, with Reigns and Rusev.

Maria Menounos interviews Rusev.

He is ticked that Reigns mocked he and his wife Lana’s nuptials, and ruins her wedding dress.  Tonight, he will pay.

But first, for the WWE Universal Championship.  Balor Vs Rollins.

We have “The Demon King” in our presence.

Finn Balor just made history, being the first Universal Champion, hitting Coup De Gras, pinning Seth.

I loved the finish, a slow build, but an incredible ending.  I can’t wait to see the rematch.

We get to hear from the Summerslam panelists.

United States Championship is up now.  Roman Reigns Vs Rusev.

The match is ruled a no contest, when Reigns and Rusev attack each other when the action starts.  But Reigns destroys Rusev with a chair shot, and acts like a heel, with Rusev being the face.

After Rusev gets up in his own power, Reigns comes right back out, and spears Rusev.

If this was designed to be a double turn, it would be awesome.

We will see tomorrow.

Our main event, 15 years in the making…Orton Vs Lesnar is now.

Brock Lesnar won the match by TKO.  Orton hit 2 RKOs, one of them on the announce table, and Lesnar took over from there.  Making Randy bleed, and the referee stopped the match.

Shane came out after the match to check on Randy, and Brock blocked his path, even hitting a F-5 on Shane, and this ended the match.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Overall, a fun night of action.  Surprised to see how the main event ended this way.  Fans were chanting for Goldberg, who didn’t show up.  So this would lead me to guess we will see Brock Vs Shane at Survivor Series?

Styles Vs Cena was amazing, as was Charlotte Vs Sasha.  Balor Vs Rollins was amazing, but Ziggler Vs Ambrose was very disappointing for some reason.

But where do we go from here?  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me, and I will talk to you tomorrow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Send me your thoughts here.  Tell me if you agree, or disagree.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/8/16…F-5 Vs RKO

Tonight, Raw is in Anaheim, California.  Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs will be our guest host.  Mick Foley also extended the invite to Daniel Bryan.

Is Randy Orton lurking?

Raw is now.

Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

Tonight, an in-depth look at Lesnar Vs Orton:  15 Years In the Making.

And Daniel Bryan is here to clear the air.

Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs is in the house.

But we kick the show off with Enzo and Cass.

My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a certified G, and a bonafide stud, and you can’t teach that.

And this right here is Big Cass, and he’s 7 foot tall, and you can’t teach that.

Badda-Boom, realest guys in the room….How ya doin’?

Last week, Enzo came out to Monday Night Raw, as a G.  He was talkin some game to the WWE Women’s Champion, how ya doin’?

She was smitten, he doesn’t practice sanatoria, and he doesn’t have a crystal ball.  He had that in the bag.

Cass said Enzo was like Mike Trout.

And then…Bon Jon Jericho wants to come out like a golden glove, and rob him of his Home Run.

This guy hits him like a codebreaker.  The only code he broke was the man code, wearing a scarf without a shirt on.

He and Cass are on Anaheim Angels on Stairway to Heaven, and Jericho is on the highway to Hell.  So Axl Rose wannabe, you’re going down.

Here comes Jericho, with the scarf, and without the shirt.

Jericho has some news for Enzo Annoying.  The only reason he is still here, is because every time he gets his mouth in trouble, he has the 7 foot maid cleaning up.

But at least Enzo has someone watching his back, but so does Chris.  How ya doin’?

Enter Kevin Owens.

Now, Jericho and Owens are closer, like Canadian brothers.  No matter what he does, Owens has his back.  No matter what he says, Owens has his back.  You have my back, right?

Owens has Jericho’s back, like Burt and Ernie, in the same bathtub?

You think that is funny?  Only a stupid idiot would think that is funny.

Owens used to like Big Cass.  Because he had dead weight, that he would carry on his back, and Owens had dead weight on his back.  But now, Cass took that dead weight with him to Raw, and he has to always hear him vomit spew.  So Owens doesn’t like Cass anymore, and if he doesn’t like him, he will have to hurt him.

Cass shows up, but Owens doesn’t want to hurt him, and Jericho will.

Yeah, Jericho will hurt him.  But Jericho isn’t talking about Cass, he is talking about this guy with the mitten head.  Enzo is going to get it.

Enzo Vs Jericho is next.

Enzo is DQ’d when Big Cass comes to the ring, and hits the big boot on Jericho.  Owens just kept interfering, and Cass had it.

Big Cass challenges Owens and Jericho to a tag team match, at Summerslam.

They agree, and Cass tells us at Summerslam, there is only one word to describe them…..

S.A.W.F.T.

Rusev is now married to Lana.  Tonight, they celebrate their marriage to us, live.

Mick Foley is on the phone, and he says they need to nip this Orton-Lesnar thing in the bud.  He is talking to Stephanie, who I guess has the night off.

“The Boss” enters the room.

Sasha Banks offers a Handicap match at Summerslam, with Charlotte and Dana Brooke.

Foley thinks that is a bad idea.  So he has a better idea.  If he puts Dana in a match with Sasha tonight, and she beats Dana.  Brooke is banned from ringside at Summerslam.  But if Dana wins, she is added in the Handicap match.

Ben-Hur is going to be terrible, and yet WWE is promoting it.

Braun Strowman screams to the ring, ready to squash his opponent.

Braun’s opponent is Jorel Nelson.  What possessed him to take this match?

He doesn’t have an answer, but he does get his entrance music.

Reverse Chokeslam, match is over.

Foley tries to use his laptap.  He runs into Puff Daddy.

Puff is coming to Columbus, Ohio on August 25th.

New Day show up.

Puff Daddy is producing the soundtrack to WWE2K17.

Big E. is at home, his balls are hurting.

Puff Daddy is going to talk to Big E., and give him some love.

Darren Young Vs Titus O’ Neil is now.

Darren won, using the tights.

At Summerslam, it will be Rollins Vs Balor, winner becomes the first Universal Champion.

Seth will speak, next.

Seth comes out, and he thought of Finn Balor as Jared Leto, to Seth’s Heath Ledger.  But after last week, he decided to rethink about his feelings about the man.

Last Monday, we see their face-to-face moment.

He’s athletic, we knew that.  He is agile, we knew that.  He is a potent striker, as any normal man would be still down on the ground, but he isn’t just a normal man.  But we know about Seth Rollins.  He wants to know the real Finn Balor.

Finn Balor isn’t even his real name.  Finn means famous warrior, and Balor means Demon King.

Will we see “The Demon” at Summerslam?

He wants to know who the real Finn Balor is, and the more he sees of him, the less he likes him.  This is Seth’s show, this is his ring.  And Finn got right into his face, how disrespectful is that?  How arrogant is that?  He told Seth he was going to beat him at Summerslam.  Finn has had 2 matches on Raw.  Grant it, they both were no joke, but they aren’t Seth Rollins.

Then Finn disrespected Rollins, by saying everything was handed to him?  Handed to him?  He worked too hard to get back into this game.  Seth knows his place, at the very top.

He doesn’t need smoke and mirrors to say who he is.  Seth knows who he is.  Seth is the myth, he is the legend….Seth is THE MAN!!

And in 200 years, people will talk about the legend of Seth Rollins.  How he sleigh the beast, or how he took out the face that runs this place.  Or how he conquered The Roman Empire, because that is what Seth did.  And how he will become the first Universal Champion.

That is what Seth Rollins is.

In 2 weeks, Rollins Vs Balor for the Universal Championship.

We will also see for the first time ever, Lesnar Vs Orton on PPV.

We see footage from last week, when Orton hit a RKO from anywhere on Lesnar.

Lesnar Vs Orton:  15 years in the making, we will see tonight.  Also, Daniel Bryan will be here tonight, to clear the air.

Sheamus Vs Cesaro is now.

Cesaro wins with a rolling of the tights.

After the match, we see what happened at Smackdown, when Brock returned the receipt from Orton.

And next, 15 years in the making, Orton Vs Lesnar video.

Lesnar Vs Orton is in 2 weeks, and Brock will be live, next week.

Daniel Bryan is here tonight, to clear the air with Mick Foley.

We have The Dudley Boyz Vs Neville and a mystery partner, next.

The mystery partner is Sin Cara.

Red Arrow, Neville and Sin Cara win.

Rusev and Lana are up next, celebrating their love.

Daniel Bryan arrives in the building.

It’s time for a celebration of love.

Lana in her wedding dress, Rusev wearing white, it’s a joyous occasion.

Lana is Rusev’s princess, and you have to give them what they want.

The fans don’t care, and Lana told us we weren’t a part of it, because it’s VIP only.

But we will re-live, and re-enact their special day with us.

This is a chance for all of us to experience true love.

We see the pictures, complete with music.

We get more talking, fans are booing, and here comes Roman Reigns, to some cheers?

Reigns isn’t here to ruin this, he was watching the video in the back.  He realized Rusev didn’t even have a best man.  So Reigns is stepping up to be Rusev’s best man.

How about he pour a couple of drinks, and toast the happy couple.

Rusev doesn’t need his stupid toast.

So how about accepting Reign’s challenge for the United States Title, at Summerslam.

He can’t accept the challenge.

Then, the toast needs to happen.

Here is a toast, he has never seen a Bulgarian swashsquash.  And a mail order bride.

That came out the wrong way, Reigns expected more, like his wife expected more on their wedding night.

Them are fighting words.

Reigns decks Rusev, Rusev runs into Lana, and into the wedding cake goes Lana.

Reigns didn’t mean it, and down goes the cake.

Sasha Banks Vs Dan Brooke is next.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw….Lana getting doused with wedding cake.

In the back, Rusev insists Reigns must pay for what happened.  Foley tells Rusev he can work on his frustration on Reigns, in a match at Summerslam, for the United States Title.

Sasha Banks Vs Dana Brooke is now.

Sasha wins the match with a Double Foot Stomp, after Charlotte is knocked off the apron.

It’s Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks, one on one at Summerslam.  Dana Brooke is banned at ringside.

Nia Jaz is here, a video showcasing her.

Next, we hear about Finn Balor.

Who is Finn Balor?  He knows who Seth Rollins is, and Finn tells us through a video.

“The Demon” is coming.

Dr. Anderson and Dr. Gallows explain to us to avoid ringpostitis.  It can be painful to your nuts.  Kofi Kingston is fixing to find out, tonight.

It’s going to be Kofi Kingston Vs Luke Gallows.

Gallows wins the match.  They tried to set up Kofi with ringpostitis, but Xavier helps his friend.

Speaking of friend, earlier today, Golden Truth meets up with Scooby-Doo.  I think Truth had a bit of “Scooby Snacks” himself, because he didn’t want the flies in The Mystery Machine.

Mick Foley is coming to the ring, next.

Foley comes out to introduce, in show of great sportsmanship, the Smackdown General Manager, Daniel Bryan.

Daniel congratulates Mick on doing a great job running Monday Night Raw.  Foley is complimenting Daniel on his job.

Daniel plugs Smackdown Live, and Foley doesn’t want to hear about that.  What Brock Lesnar did at Smackdown last week was a bit harsh, and Mick is deeply sorry.  Daniel tells Mick they started it with Orton coming out to give Brock a RKO.

Now comes talk about the Universal Championship.  Bryan on “Talking Smack” made fun of the title name, and Mick tells Daniel the Universal Title will be an important championship.

Here comes Rusev, he is the champion, Raw does not need another championship.  Then he and Daniel get into it.

But Cesaro interrupts the fun.  He tells Foley last week, Mick said if Cesaro won, he would get a title shot.  Foley disagrees with this, and says Sheamus almost had him.  Cesaro thought Foley was a man of his word.  Daniel tells Cesaro he believes he has been underutilized on Raw.

Foley gives us the title match, Cesaro Vs Rusev, now.

Next week, “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar will be here.  Also next week, Seth Rollins will call out “The Demon King”.

Cesaro Vs Rusev, for the United States Championship is now.

Rusev wins the match, when Sheamus comes out, and we get a ref bump, many close pin falls, but at the end, Cesaro was kicked in the head too many times.

Cesaro was pinned.

Rusev celebrates, but is greeted by a Reigns spear, to end the show.

Roman also gave us the peace out sign, which was funny.

The show ends here, with Dean Ambrose being a guest of the Stone Cold Podcast.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I loved the importance they gave the United States Championship tonight, and really, right now, this is the biggest Raw title.  So why not showcase it?

But unfortunately, this was another bad show by Raw.  I don’t get it, 3 weeks ago, we had one of the best shows of all-time, they showcased the superstars.  Smackdown has a chance to take another step forward this week.

Not even Mick Foley and Daniel Bryan could save it.  I did love the videos hyping up the big matches, but other than that, just a blah show.

Do you agree?  Leave me a word here.
