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

WWE Monday Night Raw, Live from Oakland, California

Monday, October 10th, 2016

Commentators:  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, Corey Graves

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

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

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

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

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

Segment Number 2:  The New Day

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

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

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

Winner:  Kofi Kingston (Via Pinfall)

Tonight:  Reigns and Banks Vs Charlotte and Rusev

Next:  Video footage of Goldberg on ESPN.

Video:  Goldberg on ESPN

Tonight:  Paul Heyman responds to Goldberg

Match Number 2:  Bayley Vs Cami Fields.

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

Winner:  Bayley (Via Pinfall)

Segment Number 5:  Chris Jericho and R-Truth

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

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

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

Winners:  Sin Cara and Lince Dorado (Via Pinfall)

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

Segment Number 7:  Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon Promo

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

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

Segment Number 8:  Seth Rollins

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

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

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

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

Winner:  No Contest

Segment Number 10:  Curtis Axel wants a match

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

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

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

Segment Number 12:  Charlotte and Lana

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

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

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

Winner:  R-Truth (Via Pinfall)

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

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

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

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

Winner:  Braun Strowman (Via Pinfall)

Video:  WWE2K17

Next:  Sasha and Reigns Vs Charlotte and Rusev

Video:  The Royal Rumble

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

Sasha and Reigns win the match when Sasha makes Charlotte tap out to the Bank Statement.

Winners:  Sasha Banks and Roman Reigns (Via Submission)

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

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

Backstage Segment:  Jeri-KO

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

Next:  Paul Heyman

Video:  Goldberg From ESPN

Segment Number 19:  Paul Heyman

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

Video:  Preview of WWE2K17

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

Video:  The makeover of Emmalina is Premiering Soon

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

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

Winner:  T.J. Perkins (Via Submission)

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

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

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 9/19/16…Go Home For The Clash

6 days away from Clash of Champions, we will see how the show is set up.  How will Reigns react from getting screwed by Rusev?

Raw is 20 minutes away.

Last week on Raw, we see what took place with Reigns Vs Owens.

We are live in Memphis, Tennessee, and we get no music intro.  Roman Reigns comes out to the ring.

Reigns starts to talk, and here comes Stephanie McMahon.

She knows he wants a piece of Rusev, but she has a show to run.

Here comes Mick Foley.

Foley chants in Memphis.

They came up with a solution, Foley was in charge last week, and he let things get out of control.  That is on him, so he will put Seth Rollins Vs Rusev, tonight.

That is great, but what does it do for Reigns?  Three weeks ago, he was screwed by her coward husband.  Last week, he was screwed out of Rusev.

Foley tells Reigns in 6 days he will get a United States Title match against Rusev, and Stephanie guarantees it.

But Foley tells Reigns he has every right to not trust Stephanie, because of their past, but she put Mick in charge.  But guys don’t take his word , and they decide to do things in their own way.  He said Reigns and Owens had an incredible match last week, until things got out of hand.  He wants to make things right, because while Stephanie will be good, he can be back on the couch, if they lose the ratings war.  He said he has been in and out of good graces with the company over the years.  He has something to prove.

So tonight, we will have a rematch of Owens Vs Reigns.

The Champ comes out, and disagrees with this.  He needs to get ready for his title match this Sunday.

Stephanie tells Owens this will be a non-title match, but Mick is in charge.

Mick agrees it’s a non-title match, but it will be inside a steel cage, right here in Memphis, Tennessee.

So we kick things off with Rollins Vs Rusev, now.

Stephanie is upset about Mick’s decision to make this a steel cage match.

But Rusev is irate over making this match at Clash of Champions, and tonight’s match.  Rusev says Foley is jealous of the Rusev family, and Mick ignores that, he tells him he has a match this Sunday against Roman Reigns, and tonight’s match with Seth Rollins.

He gets a phone call from Chris Jericho.

Rusev Vs Rollins is now.

Both men were counted in what was a fantastic match.  Rusev tries to give Rollins a Powerbomb onto the floor, but Rollins gets out of it, and gives Rusev a flying body press, on top of the announce table.

We are backstage, Dana Brooke and Charlotte show footage from last week’s Triple Threat match.

Foley changes the match this Sunday for the Women’s Championship to a Triple Threat match between Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks Vs Bayley, the credits Dana for the idea.

Charlotte shoves Dana.

Tonight, steel cage match with Owens Vs Reigns.  We also will see the debut of The Cruiserweight Division.  2 guys we will see in the ring are Brian Kendrick and Cedrick Alexander.

Jericho is with Kevin Owens.  He says Foley never like him, so he is out to get to Owens.

He is rotten, he is abusing his power.  Jericho is going to make a list of every rotten thing Foley has done as GM.  And when he shows him, he is not going to like IT.

Braun Strowman squash is up, against Sin Cara.

Braun took care of Sin Cara, with ease.  Hitting a powerslam.

Bayley is with Sasha Banks, she is looking forward to being in the ring with her this Sunday.  They beat each other last week, but the good news is one of them will be Women’s Champion, but tonight, they will team up and face Charlotte and Dana, and show them how it’s done.

That tag match is next.

Bayley and Sasha vs Charlotte and Dana is now.

Charlotte and Dana win the match with an assist by Dana, and a kick to the face by Charlotte, pinning Bayley.

Tonight, a steel cage match with Kevin Owens Vs Roman Reigns.  We see Seth Rollins enter Stephanie’s office.

Tomorrow night on Smackdown Live, a double main event with Cena Vs Ambrose, and Miz Vs Ziggler, for the IC Title.

Players from the Memphis Grizzlies are here.

Rollins is in Stephanie’s office, and they had some good times here.  So why did she throw it away for Kevin Owens?

Stephanie still denies anything to do with that.  But maybe Kevin was right, he is responsible for the WWE World Championship being on Smackdown.  Maybe it’s because he lost the title to Finn Balor, maybe.  HHH chose him from The Shield, and he has embarrassed him, maybe.

Seth knows Stephanie was behind this, with her husband, and maybe they made the wrong decision, and when Rollins beats Owens at Clash of Champions, they will crawl on their knees, and ask for forgiveness.  But then again, maybe he will be their worst nightmare.

Stephanie again denies anything, but she admits they were wrong in Seth. She thinks Kevin Owens is the right choice for WWE Universal Champion, and now Kevin is THE MAN.

Seth says Steph used to be a shrewd businesswoman, but she has changed.  And he thinks it started when her brother Shane came back.

Another squash for Bo Dallas, hitting Roll The Dice.

Sick of these squash matches.

Cesaro Vs Sheamus, match 6 of best of 7 series is next.

Video on our new Cruiserweight Champion, TJ Perkins.

The Cruiserweights Arrive on Raw, tonight.

Cesaro Vs Sheamus, match 6 is up now.

The series is tied at 3-3, with Cesaro hitting a Neutralizer, winning the match.

Foley is on the phone, making it official, match 7 is at Clash of Champions.

Jericho is with Foley.  Jericho is making the list of Jericho, with what Foley has done poorly as a GM.

Foley calls him a stupid idiot, and tells Chris he looks stupid with this scarf, right here in Memphis.

Jericho will now have to tell the world what is on the list of Jericho.

The List of Jericho is on The Highlight Reel.

For the last 2 months, Mick Foley has done a terrible job as GM, and we all know it.  He has screwed with Chris, he has screwed with his best friend Kevin Owens, and we will hear the list now.

  1.  He has tried to develop a fringe between his best friend and himself, Kevin Owens, but it won’t happen.
  1.   He has horrible fashion senses.

  2.   He has a liking for that psychedelic Sami Zayn, and he will take care of him next week at Clash of Champions.

Here comes Enzo and Cass.

Enzo and Cass have an issue with Jericho calling Owens his best friend, because a best friend wouldn’t make him wear that horrible scarf.  When they think of best friends, they think of Enzo and Cass, Bart and Millhouse, Burt and Ernie, Ashton and Justin.

Jericho said half of those people don’t even exist, and they bring up Ashton?  What is this, 1998?

Here come The Shining Stars.

They talk about how everyone needs to relax, and they can do that by traveling to Caribbean.

OHHHHHHHH MEMPHIS, ITS TIME TO STAND UP, AND CLAP YOUR HANDS TOGETHER FOR YOU WORLD FAMOUS 2-TIME WWE WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, AND IT’S A NEW DAY, YES IT IS!!

The new Day come out, and share their thoughts on this, and here comes Anderson and Gallows.

They say its stupid to hear them talk about their cereal, which is why they will take their Tag Titles at Clash of Champions.

Jericho calls them all stupid idiots, and says they all made the list of Jericho, and here comes Sami Zayn.  Now all 11 men are fighting each other when we go to a break.

10-man tag match is now.

The team of Enzo, Cass, Sami, and New Day win with a Helluva Kick, and a Badda Boom Shaka Lacka, winning the match.

Earlier tonight, we see where Foley made the match official for United States Championship at Clash of Champions.  And tonight, steel cage match between Reigns Vs Owens.

More Cruiswerweight video with Richard Swann and Grand Metalik.

The Cruiserweights Arrive, next.

September is Hispanic Heritage Month, and we look back at the late, great Eddie Guerrero.

Mick Foley is here, again.

He is here to introduce the Cruiserweights.

4 competitors are here now.  Rich Swann, Grand Metalik, Cedrick Alexander, and The Brian Kendrick.

Mick tells us every title will be defended at Clash of Champions, and that includes the new Cruiserweight Title.  The winner of this Fatal 4-Way match will face TJ Perkins at the PPV.

That match is next.

The Brian Kendrick wins the match, making Cedrick tap out to Captain’s Hook, a Crossface submission hold.

Kendrick Vs Perkins is set at Clash of Champions, for the Cruiserweight Title.

Last week, we saw Nia Jax face Alicia Fox, and this coming Sunday, on the Kick-Off show, these two will hook it up, again.

The steel cage is being lowered.  Our main event is live, and next on Raw.

We are live at the Fed Ex Forum, in Memphis, Tennessee, set for our main event.

Owens vs Reigns, inside a steel cage.

Reigns wins the match by escaping out of the cage, before Owens could.

Rusev shows up, and the two men fight it out.

Rusev and Owens has Reigns trapped inside the cage, and here comes Rollins.  He climbs up the very top of the cage, and flies, ending the show with all four men down.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Yup, they are going to reunite Reigns and Rollins, even if it’s for one night.  A good show tonight, the only two down parts were the two squashes.  But I love how they treated the Cruiserweight Division, and can’t wait to see more.  The women’s tag match was very good, Cesaro and Sheamus move on, we hear from the great List of Jericho, and 2 good main event matches, to boot.

Not much more you can ask for, setting up Clash of Champions.

Send me your opinions, and get ready for Smackdown Live tomorrow night.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 9/5/16…The Kevin Owens Show

Happy Labor Day, and we are set for what hopefully will be an energetic Raw.  Last week, HHH costs Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns the WWE Universal Title match, and set it up for Kevin Owens to win the title.

How will Rollins and Reigns react?

Raw starts in 35 minutes.

We kick the show off with footage from last week, the buzz was incredible.

Earlier today, Stephanie McMahon is on the phone, setting up a celebration for Kevin Owens’ Title Celebration.

Mick Foley told Steph her husband embarrassed him, and she never returned text messages.  Steph asked Mick who does he  think he is questioning what she has to say, and Mick brought up the history they had.  Steph told him she was embarrassed as a leader, as a wife, that she had no idea about what was going to happen.  She didn’t respond because she didn’t even know.  He believes her, because if she is lying, that makes her a very bad person, and Mick can’t believe that.

Raw is now.

We begin the show with Mick Foley and Stephanie in the ring.  The Kevin Owens Celebration begins in Kansas City.

Here comes the new WWE Universal Champion, Kevin Owens.

Kevin wouldn’t shake the hand of Mick Foley, he celebrates his win.

Kevin is actually smiling, and Steph says Kevin deserves this moment, and Kevin deserves the title.  Last week, the entire arena was chanting Kevin deserves it, and they are 100% right.  But he doesn’t deserve a crowd full of idiots hijacking his moment.  They are trying to make this their moment.  The crowd isn’t great, they aren’t special.  Kevin is, he has deserved this the moment he set foot in this ring.  Last week, he defeated 3 superstars, and HHH gave him that extra nudge.  All he did was make things right, and put him where he belongs, at the very top of this industry.  Which is why Monday Night Raw is officially known as The Kevin Owens Show.

Here comes Seth Rollins, charging to the ring.

Seth tells Kevin this isn’t about him, so shut up.  How can Stephanie do this to him?  He gave everything he could to put this company on his back.  He broke his ligaments for this company.  Kevin tries to chime in, and he told Kevin he has no problem with him, he’s just a puppet to HHH.

Stephanie told him she had nothing to do with it, and Seth said bullcrap, Mick steps in.  Kevin Owens has been the chosen one ever since he set foot in NXT, but he will burn everything to the ground, and the king and queen will be begging for Seth to side with them.

Kevin loves the passion, where was this though before, because it looks like The “Architect” has done nothing but blueprints.

Seth decks Kevin, and Stephanie tells Seth he is suspended indefinitely.  Mick disagrees, he reminds Steph he is in charge of making matches, and she seems to be acting out of emotion.  He never has liked Seth, but knows how good he is.  So he will get a rematch for the Universal Title at Clash of the Champions.

Up next, it’s Charlotte Vs Bayley.

Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens are backstage, complaining about what just happened.  Mick will give us Owens Vs Zayn, and Jericho Vs Rollins.

Charlotte Vs Bayley is now.

Bayley wins with a Belly to Bayley after Charlotte accidentally knocks into Dana Brooke.

A non-title match tells me she is getting a title shot at Clash of the Champions.

Sasha Banks is here tonight, and she has some “bad news” to deliver.  Also tonight, Jericho Vs Rollins, and Owens Vs Zayn.

September is Fight Children’s Cancer Month, and WWE is teaming with Connor’s Cure to find a cure for Pediatric Cancer.

The Cruiserweight Division is coming to Monday Night Raw.

It arrives in 2 weeks.

Dana Brooke and Charlotte are backstage.  Charlotte is irate over her loss, blames Dana for not taking notes on the clip board.

Charlotte slaps Dana.

It’s time to Bo-Lieve.

Bo is facing some dude.

He has to Bo-Lieve in Bo.

Bo is facing Kyle Richards, and Bo has a more serious side, it seems.

Bo hits Rolling The Dice, and wins the match.

Bo-Lieve in Bo.

Tonight, Gallows and Anderson promise to give New Day a glimpse of their golden years.

Jericho and Owens are walking.  Owens is the longest reigning Universal Champion in history.  Rollins will get his, because Owens is like family, he is his best friend.

Rollins Vs Jericho is next.

Tomorrow night on Smackdown, AJ Styles confronts with Dean Ambrose, before Backlash.

Jericho Vs Rollins is now.

Rollins picks up a win with a Pedigree, sending a message to HHH.

Tonight, Sasha Banks is here to send a message.  And next, match 3 of Best of 7 Series with Cesaro Vs Sheamus.

Sheamus picks up the win with the Irish Curse.  Match 4 is this Wednesday in London.  Cesaro must win all of the matches now to continue.

Tonight, Sasha Banks will return to Raw with some news.

How ya doin’?

Big Cass and Enzo time.

Epico and Primo are haters?  They try to sell Caribbean time shares.  Nobody is going to buy them, because they are a couple of haters, and nobody will buy them in the middle of the United States in Kansas City.

Enzo and Cass Vs Shining Stars is now.

The Shining Stars pick up an upset win, Epico holds the tights, and wins the match.  Tonight, it’s Owens Vs Zayn.

Nia Jax squash match is up now.

Tom Phillips is with Sami Zayn.  He thought this rival was over, yet he has to face him again, but this time, Owens is the WWE Universal Champion.  Sami won the last encounter, and he thought his career would turn around, but it seems like nothing has happened since that big win.  Yet Owens is the WWE Universal Champion.  He is a bit jealous of him.

Owens says two years ago, Sami was signed to WWE first, he won NXT Title first, so Owens was a bit jealous.  But now the other side of the foot is here, and Owens won the race.  He is simply better.

Sami talked about being the better man the last time, and the race is never over.  He will win the WWE Universal Title, but he will do it by himself, and not have HHH win it for him.

Yup, she wins the match.

They are Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, and they are Retirement Specialists.  Ever since they retired The Dudley Boyz, they want to show The new Day that life can be good too when they lose the Tag Team Titles to them at Clash of the Champions.

We have The Old Day coming out.

The crowd is dead silent with this.

Here come The New Day.

They want to get into the ring, and Gallows and Anderson leave.

That leaves The New Day with The Old Day.

The Old Day try to attack The New Day.  It doesn’t happen that way.

Big Ending, that is all she wrote.

In 3 weeks, at Clash of the Champions.  New Day Vs Gallows and Anderson.

We kicked Raw off tonight with Kevin Owens Celebration.  Rollins attacks Owens, in 3 weeks, at Clash of Champions, these two face off for the WWE Universal Championship.

Tonight, Owens Vs Zayn.

Darren Young Vs Jinder Mahal is up now.

Darren Young is great again, and Titus O’ Neil is jealous.  He wins with the Gut Check.  But Titus tries to go after Backlund, and Darren attacks Titus.

Nia Jax is backstage with Alicia Fox, they start fighting.

Oh good lord, another squash.  Strowman Vs Sin Cara.

Sin Cara is challenging Strowman because last week he went after the heritage by grabbing the mask.  He is here not to allow that happen again.

Strowman wins the match by countout.

Here comes “The Boss” Sasha Banks.

There is a saying that every journey has an end, and every story has a chapter.  For years, the divas needed a revolution.  For years, there was women.  Like Mae Young and Fabulous Moolah, like Alundra Blayze, like Trish and Lita, who paved the way.  There was a revolution on July 13th, 2015.  Stephanie McMahon announced there would be a change in the women’s division.  No more bra and panties matches, and no more butterflies on championships.  They did it to become superstars.  This revolution is for every mother, and daughter.  And her revolution is for when she steps into this ring, it’s for every little girl who dreams to be something better.  She used to wake up at 6:00 every morning with her mom to collect soda cans to get enough money to buy a wrestling ticket.  That is why she did this, this ring means everything to Sasha.

At Summerslam, she was pushed beyond her limit.  Charlotte tried to break her back, but she is not here to make excuses.  Charlotte beat her.  She had an update with her doctors.

Dana Brooke interrupts.

Dana made a promise to Charlotte to make a statement, and she will end her little journey right here, right now.

Sasha laid Dana out with a Backstabber, and a Bank Statement.  The bad news wasn’t for her, it was for Charlotte.  At Clash of the Champions, Sasha will get her rematch for the Women’s Title, and will take it back.

Owens Vs Zayn is next.

Owens picks up the win with a Powerbomb, taking advantage of Sami’s injured leg.

Here comes Roman Reigns.

Before a fight can break out, Mick Foley interrupts this, and he makes next week a big show.  Reigns vs Owens.  If Reigns wins, he is added to the Universal Title match at Clash of Champions, in a Triple Threat match.

We end the show with both men staring each other down, and Owens was irate he had to get put in that spot.  Jericho comes out, and Reigns spears him.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The first hour and a half was great, I loved Seth Rollins making sure he told everyone involved he will take care of them.  And now we will see Rollins Vs Owens in 3 weeks.

But the middle of the show completely dragged down, and that segment with New Day and Gallows and Anderson was awful.

Thankfully, Sasha picked things up.

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/29/16…Fatal 4-Way For The Universal Title

Tonight, we will see who the new WWE Universal Champion will be in a Fatal 4-Way match.  We will also see match 2 of Best of 7 Series, between Sheamus Vs Cesaro.

Raw is in 15 minutes.

In memory of Harry “Mr. Fuji” Fujiwara.

Clips from last week, when Finn Balor had to forfeit his WWE Universal Championship, and tonight we see a Fatal 4-Way to determine the new WWE Universal Champion.

We are live in Houston, Texas.  Corey Graves is standing by with all 4 competitors in the ring.

If it wasn’t for what Seth Rollins did to Finn Balor, he never would have underwent shoulder surgery.  And he would have never relinquish the Universal Championship.

Seth Rollins is the number one draft choice, he is ready to take the Universal Championship, and he is going to be very generous in giving mic time to any of these other competitors.

Kevin is gracious, and he puts over the other three competitors.  But now it’s time to be serious.  Now that Sami Zayn is out of the picture, he can focus on going after the prize.  He is a prize fighter.  And he is at his best when the big fights take place.

Now Seth, he is at his best, but Kevin is better.  Roman fights a bigger fight, but Owens fights smarter.  Big Cass, well he is just tall.

But Cass doesn’t even have his mouthpiece, which means he can talk.

Cass knows where he stands, he is the new guy.  He doesn’t have any titles, but he has nothing to lose.  He may be a new guy, but he is the biggest dog in the fight.  And Seth no matter what he tries to tell himself, size does matter.

How ya doin’?

It’s Seth’s turn to talk.  He is glad this is an elimination match, because he will send Cass back with his partner.  And Owens, he will eliminate him, and send him back to his Ernie-=wearing scarf, Chris Jericho.  And Roman, we all know how we stand, he will just have to beat Roman again.  There are three things in life.  Death, paying taxes, and beating Roman Reigns.

Corey asks Roman his thoughts, Roman stands up, and gives Owens a cheap shot, and the fighting with all four men begins.  It ends with Roman giving Seth a Superman Punch, and looks at the Universal Title.

Fatal 4-Way match for Universal Title.

Tonight, Paul Heyman addresses what Brock Lesnar did at Summerslam.

But next, Jericho Vs Neville.

Tom Phillips asks Chris Jericho that he gave a cheap shot to Neville to allow Owens to advance to tonight’s match.

Jericho tells us we all knew Owens was going to win.  So Neville is upset?  Is he fired up?  Does the Mighty Mouse come around to sing “Here I come to save the day”?  You know what he’s going to get?

Tom answers it.

No, that doesn’t make sense, you stupid idiot.  He is going to get the gift of Jericho.  Drink it in, man.

Jericho Vs Neville, now.

A great match between these two, we see Jericho make Neville tap to Walls of Jericho.

Raw is starting off good tonight.

Earlier today, Bayley was hugging everyone working for WWE, and she ran into New Day.

Dana Brooke interrupts this fun.

She tells Bayley she doesn’t belong here.

But who did she beat?

Who?

Who?

Who?

Dana is trying to counter that, but she brings up Gallows and Anderson.  They challenge them to a 6 person tag match, and Dana says to bring it on.

Bayley replies it’s already been brought.

Nia Jax is in the ring, ready to squash someone else.

She wins, with ease.

Gallows and Anderson used to be doctors, but now they are in the retirement business.  Some superstars need a little encouragement, like the Dudley Boyz.  Now they are enjoying table tennis, 3-D movies, and remembering back at the days when they used to matter.

But another team who needs to think about retirement are The New Day.  They are here to help them out, as is Nurse Dana Brooke.

We see footage of last night’s WWE Universal Title Tournament, with Seth Rollins.  He will walk out as “The Man” and be the new WWE Universal Champion.

Sami Zayn Vs Jinder Mahal is now.

An injured Sami Zayn hits a Helluva Kick to win the match.

Tonight, 6-Person tag match of Gallows, Anderson, and Brooke Vs The New Day and Bayley.

But next, we will get an update from Sasha Banks.

They show us footage from the Raw pre-show.  Sasha tells us she did hurt her back, but will be back soon.

Charlotte is with the crew.  Sasha calls Charlotte a coward, but Charlotte reminds us she was without her father, and Dana Brooke, so what is her excuse?

AHHHHHH H-TOWN, IT’S TIME TO STAND UP AND APPLAUD YOUR 2-TIME TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS….THERE’S A NEW DAY IN TOWN, YES IT IS.

6-person tag match of New Day and Bayley Vs Gallows, Anderson, and Dana Brooke.

Bayley and New Day win the match when Bayley hits Bayley to Belly, on Dana.

Tonight, Paul Heyman returns to address Brock Lesnar’s actions.  Also tonight, Fatal 4-Way match for the WWE Universal Title.

Cesaro is with Tom Phillips.  He is in a rough spot, being down 1-0 to Sheamus.  But he will do what it takes to win this series, because he wants a shot at a title that Mick Foley promised.  Nobody like Sheamus, so he will take care of him tonight.

Big Cass profile, heading into tonight’s Fatal 4-Way match.

Sheamus Vs Cesaro, match 2 of the Best of 7 is now.

Sheamus wins the match, taking advantage of Cesaro’s injured leg, makes him tap to the Cloverleaf.

Sheamus leads the series 2-0.

Video tribute to Mr. Fuji.

Kevin Owens video is playing now.

Braun Strowman Vs Americo, you know the story here.

Pain!!

He takes the mask off the dude too.

Stephanie McMahon is headed to the ring, next.

Video of Tomasa Chiapa, Cedrick Alexander, and Johnny Gargano, the future of the Cruiserweights are coming to Raw.  They arrive Raw in 3 weeks.

Stephanie McMahon comes to the ring.

She welcomes us to Raw, yet we have been on the air for 2 hours.

Tonight, Fatal 4-Way match for the WWE Universal Title, but first we must discuss what happened to her brother at Summerslam.  Some may think she was glad Brock Lesnar F-5’d Shane, but he is family, and you never mess with family…

Ladies and gentlemen, Paul Heyman just interrupted Stephanie McMahon.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman, and Stephanie if you may indulge him….

Stephanie tells him this is her ring, he needs to come to the ring, and apologize.

If I may Madame….

Don’t call her Madame.

ECW chants, and Stephanie thanks them saying she purchased ECW, so thank you.

Heyman reminds Steph that when Brock Lesnar pinned Randy Orton, Raw beat Smackdown.  Now he gets it, when Brock nailed an official, and he F-5’d her brother, he crossed the line.  But he is here to pay his client’s most reasonable fine, $500.

All dollar bills, I love it.

And now he is count them one by one.

Stephanie throws the money.

Brock provides value to Monday Night Raw, but what value does he provide Stephanie.  Explain to his daughter that his Daddy can’t provide for her anymore.  There is a storm coming, and it coming your ugly way.

And so the angel comes from heaven above to warn the advocate you will not survive the pending storm to which, no his client Brock Lesnar IS THE STORM!!

There is an apology to come out 8 days late, and there is an apology that goes out to Stephanie McMahon.

They understand the situation they put Stephanie through the board of directors, to which her brother is a part, that Stephanie has to dictate to.  We understand her father is a part of that board, and the money they make this company, to which the female empowerment.

No, Stephanie says there is a female revolution staring at him in the face.

Heyman understands Stephanie is the only, and right heir to the throne of this empire, and he is here to ask her, to beg her that she accepts this as a fine laid, and an apology that is sincerely delivered.

Apology accepted, she walks off.

And Heyman loves that.

We go back to the WWE Universal Championship, when Seth Rollins lays Finn Balor out with a Buckle Bomb.  And Finn popped his shoulder back in place, and won the WWE Universal Championship.

Footage from last Tuesday, when Balor went through his surgery, and he showed a tweet of his shoulder the day of the surgery.

Fatal 4-Way to the WWE Universal Championship tonight.  Seth Rollins Vs Big Cass Vs Kevin Owens Vs Roman Reigns.

Next, it’s Titus O’ Neil Vs Darren Young

We now see footage of Roman Reigns.

Darren wins with a rollup.

It’s time to make Darren Young great again.

Titus lays out Darren and Mr. Backlund.  Clash of the Titus.

Mick Foley and Stephanie appearance.  Mick feels he should have been out there.  Let’s ban friends and tag team partners out of tonight’s match.  Seth Rollins tells Steph tonight will be the best night ever, and all of that faith she has in him will be worth it.

Stephanie believes in Rollins.

Our main event is up now.  Rollins Vs Owens Vs Big Cass Vs Reigns, winner becomes WWE Universal Champion.

Cass is eliminated, he sure looked great, giving Reigns two big boots.  But all three men teamed up to eliminate him, and Owens hit the Frogsplash for the pin.

Now there are three.

HHH just came out, and gave Reigns a Pedigree, and made Rollins pin him.

It’s now between Owens and Rollins.

HOLY SHIT!!  HHH JUST TURNED ON ROLLING, AND PEDIGREED ROLLING.

OWENS IS THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPION!!!

What an ending, what a moment.  But now Foley and HHH are looking eye to eye, when HHH leaves.

Owens is crying too, what a moment for Kevin.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Kevin Owens Show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

What a historic night indeed, a changing of the guard so to speak.  I loved it, because it makes this show interesting.  What will Rollins do from here?  You have to believe Rollins will be gunning for HHH, right?  And will Reigns team up with Rollins to reform The Shield?

My gawd, share your thoughts with me.  Just an amazing ending.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 8/1/16….HotLanta!!

Tonight, Monday Night Raw is in Atlanta, Georgia.  Seth Rollins and Finn Balor are in the house, these two men face off at Summerslam, for the coveted WWE Universal Championship.

“the Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar is also in the house, what are his thoughts about facing Randy Orton at Summerslam?

Raw is now.

The new entrance theme song is playing.

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

“The Boss” Sasha Banks kicks off the show.

In 3 weeks, rematch for the WWE Women’s Title, Banks Vs Charlotte.

The crowd chant she deserves it, and Sasha tells us it’s about time Raw kicks off with a Bank Statement, and she is the new Women’s Champion.

Last year, at NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn, people were talking about Bayley and “The Boss” because they stole the show.  But they didn’t just steal it, they owned the show.

And things stay the same, because at Summerslam, she plans on keeping her Women’s Title, from Charlotte.

Here comes Charlotte.

You tapped out chants are going on.

Charlotte is mad, she looks a little different, without the Women’s Championship, as Sasha reminds her.  Dana Brooke isn’t with Charlotte.

Charlotte doesn’t need Dana to beat her, she doesn’t need her father to beat her.  But at Summerslam, Charlotte will beat Sasha all by herself.  She was the very best for over 300 days.  Sasha was just a one night stand.

Charlotte is the daughter of Ric Flair, if it wasn’t for a one night stand, Charlotte wouldn’t even be here.

Chris Jericho comes out, telling us to be quiet.

Brilliant.

He tells Sasha to be quiet, and says she is a disrespectful punk.  Charlotte is royalty, look at her lineage.  She looks like a princess.  She may be Ric Flair’s daughter, but she has accomplished more than Ric Flair has ever done.  Who has Ric Flair beat?  But he knows Charlotte will beat her.

Now Jericho asks Sasha what makes her a “boss”?  She is the boss of only purple-haired snot nosed stupid idiots.

But Sasha isn’t a boss, she is a brat.

Enzo Amore comes out, and he is a certified G, and a bona fide stud.  And you can’t teach that.  Badda-Boom, realest guy in the room….HOW YA DOIN’?

Sasha, for real, how ya doin’, and he kisses her hand.

More brilliance from Enzo.  Enzo likes to do things on his own sometimes.  He is a G, and she is a BOSS, actually BUASS.

Enzo likes to make a certified bank, how ya doin?

Charlotte tells Enzo word is his life is described as one word….

Let me spell it out for ya….

Enzo talks about Jericho’s speak, comparing it to texting someone, and you see the three dots, but he never hits send.

Listen here, you hip-hop hobbit.  Jericho tells him you better watch it.

He said you better watch it.

Watch what?

IT!!

Watch Enzo’s mouth?  For him to speak is like washing his hiney before he poops.  He calls Jericho Bon Jovi.  You can’t turn back time, if he could, he would stop him from buying that horrible scarf.

How ya doin’?

It’s Mick Foley time.

Mick does care, and he may not be the BOSS, but he is their boss.  That man is Enzo Amore, he is a certified G, but they both wear leopard.

Both Enzo and Sasha appear on his new reality show “Holy Foley”, and Sasha set the bar high last week, by being the new Women’s Champion.  And we are going to have Charlotte and Sasha compete in the ring again, tonight.

It will be a mixed tag match of Jericho and Charlotte Vs Sasha and Enzo.  It won’t only appear right here, in Atlanta, Georgia.  But it will be right now.

Kevin Owens joins us at commentary.

Charlotte and Jericho won the match with a little help from Dana Brooke, and hits Natural Selection.

After the match, Jericho hits a Codebreaker, and here comes Big Cass to aid his buddy.

I am guessing we will lead to Enzo and Cass Vs Jericho and Owens match at Summerslam.  I have no issue with that.

We will hear from Finn Balor, tonight.

Braun Strowman is about to destroy Evan Anderhall, and he is doing this because he gets $1,000 for just showing up.  And he gets $5,000 if he wins.

Reverse Chokeslam, Evan picks up the $1,000 at least.

Steph and Mick segment.  She is in favor of the mixed tag match.

Mark Henry shows up.

Mark is excited about the Summer Olympics, and he is excited about “The New Era”, but he is hungry, and he is ready to open up more additions to The Hall of Pain.

Steph and Mick want him to be a mentor, and Mark interrupts this, saying she is wrong.  He is a 2-time World Champion, and he is a 2-time Olympic athlete.

Foley suggests he gets an US Title match against Rusev.

Golden Truth in action, tonight.

Golden Truth Vs Shining Stars is now.

Golden Truth loses, so Shining Stars wins, because Truth cares more about Pokemon Go than his own partner.

Oh boy, hour one has sucked tonight.  The last 2 hours needs to pick up.

Finn Balor is next.

Tonight, Brock Lesnar will speak, setting up his match with Randy Orton.

Michael Cole introduces us to Finn Balor.

Cole brings up Balor was a surprise choice as a first round pick in the draft, yet last week, he proved his value.  Balor starts to explain things, but here comes Seth Rollins.

Seth tells Cole to take a hike.  He wants us to give an ovation to Finn Balor.  Finn was a former NXT World Champion.  He wasn’t the first World Champion, but that was Rollins.  Finn was a first round pick in the draft, but Seth was the number one pick overall.  Finn was very admirable in beating Roman Reigns last week, but he beat him in his first night back from coming back with an injury.

Finn asks him if he is done, he is right about everything, but Finn will beat Seth at Summerslam, and being the first WWE Universal Champion.

That amuses Seth, that is like saying the Atlanta Braves are going to be World Series champions, it just won’t happen.

We get Tomahawk chants, and Seth tells us they horrible.  Finn had a great legacy in NXT, but he is the man.

Finn brings up everywhere he has wrestled, he has had guys think they were the man, but he beat them, and became the man.

Seth said they have never faced each other, why don’t he get a good seat to watch him face his buddy Sami Zayn later tonight.

Finn said they have had many similarities, but he never had anything handed to him like Seth had at Summerslam.

Rollins said he has never had anything handed to him, and Finn said the one thing he will have handed to him is when Finn kicks his ass.

Seth tries to attack him, but Finn counters with a kick.

Three weeks away, the first WWE universal Champion is crowned.  Rollins Vs Balor.

Tonight, New Day Vs Gallows and Anderson.  One member of New Day will be barred, but next, Mark Henry Vs Rusev for the United States Championship.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw, Balor kick Seth.

Tonight, Seth Vs Zayn.

It’s Lana in a white wedding dress, she and Rusev were married this past weekend.

Rusev Vs Henry for the US Title is now.

Rusev defeats Henry with an Accolade.  He tells us nobody can take the US Title away from him, and nobody can take Lana from him.

Enter Roman Reigns.

Rusev wants to leave, but Roman won’t let him.

Rusev starts the fight, but Roman finishes it off with a Superman Punch.

Nia Jax video is showing now.  She made her Raw debut last week, and she is in action, tonight.

Tomorrow night, on Smackdown Live, we will see the debut of American Alphas.  AJ Styles has a message for John Cena.

Darren Young Vs Titus O’ Neil is now.

Titus wins with some tights, rolling him up.

Titus tells Darren it’s not about being great, it’s about winning.

Steph gives Mick a gift, and Sheamus is irate about Foley giving Mark Henry an US Title match, and not Sheamus.  Cesaro comes in, and he tells us we don’t care about Sheamus.

Foley tells them that Cesaro has a questionable shoulder, and Sheamus hasn’t been in the game since cashing in Money in the Bank briefcase.  He tells both men to face off in the ring, and the winner will receive a future title shot.

Nia Jax is in action, next.

The Cruiserweight Division is coming to Raw.

Mr. Backlund is upset at Titus, he tells him he will knock his old ass out if he doesn’t shut up, Darren lays him out from behind.

Nia Jax will face Ariel Monroe, in the ring.

Nia wins with the Power Slam.

Byron interviews Nia, and asks her how it feels to compete in a Raw ring.  Nia goes after Ariel, and she tells Byron to ask her how it feels.

Tom Phillips is with Sami Zayn.

Sami knows Seth, they have battled over the years, but he has one weakness, Seth has a big mouth.  Just like the man he battled with in Kevin Owens.  He had a match of his life at Battleground, and he beat him.  Seth has something to prove?  Sami is going to make a statement.

New Day selects a fruit in the basket, it looks like Xavier lost by choosing a banana.

We are live in Atlanta, Georgia.

Brock Lesnar is here.

OHHHHH ATL, IT’S TIME TO STAND UP AND CLAP FOR YOUR WORLD FAMOUS 2-TIME TAG TEAM CHAMPS, AND FEEL THE POWER.

It’s a New Day….yes it is.

Last week, Gallows and Anderson attacked them from behind, so of course who filed a complaint against them?  Yup, the bald-headed freaks.  So they drew who would wrestle with fruit in a bag, and Atlanta’s own Xavier Woods drew the short end of the stick.  They were going to form a penis, with the banana and two peaches, but that wasn’t PG.

So here comes Gallows and Anderson, and we have our match.

New Day win when Gallows and Anderson turned their backs on Big E., and Big E. rolls up Anderson.

Here comes Xavier, but down goes Xavier.  Magic Killer, message is sent.

Xavier tries to fight back, but they lay him out too.

Moments ago, we see Gallows and Anderson lay out The new Day after a loss.

It’s Cesaro Vs Sheamus, now.

Cesaro wins with a Neutralizer, Brock Lesnar returns, tonight.

We get a fight between Cesaro Sheamus, and Heath Slater interrupts the fight, with a returning Jinder Mahal.

Mick Foley comes out, informs both men they aren’t a part of Raw roster.  But makes a match of Jinder Vs Slater, winner gets a contract from Raw.

Heath refuses, but Jinder gives him a kick for the pinfall victory.

Welcome back to Raw, Jinder Mahal.

Earlier tonight, Cass and Sasha faced Jericho and Charlotte, with Charlotte and Jericho winning.

Tom Phillips is with Jericho.  He tells Tom that his scarf was $750, and he has someone watching his back, in case Cass comes out.

Tom wanted to know who, but Chris made up a name.  Kevin Owens volunteers his services.

Rollins Vs Zayn is next.

Rollins wins the match with a Pedigree.  Good match here that showcased both men.

Paul Heyman comes out, and we will hear from Brock Lesnar, next.

American Alpha debut tomorrow night on Smackdown Live.

Next week, Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs will guest host Raw.

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman.  And I know for the last 3 hours, we have been waiting on the edge of the seats waiting, salivating to see the most box office attraction in combat sports to come out so we can worship.  Ladies and gentlemen, the beast incarnant, and the Viper Slayer, Brock Lesnar.

In 3 weeks, it will be Randy Orton Vs Brock Lesnar, at Summerslam.

Ladies and gentlemen, on Sunday night, August 24th, live at the Barclay Center, in WWE Network, his client Brock Lesnar will entertain you.  Did Paul Heyman just advocate his client Brock Lesnar will do all things of entertain us?  Yes, because Brock has a different form of entertainment than what they run in WWE.  Brock is violent, and he can’t say that word.  But he can say whatever he wants, because Brock Lesnar is standing right next to him.  Brock isn’t here to cement his stamp of the new era, or kiss Mick Foley’s ass.  He is here to take out Smackdown Live’s own Randy Orton.

Randy is a third generation superstar, they say he is one step away from a RKO.  They say he is one RKo away from shocking the world, just like Brock shocked the world by ending the Wrestlemania steak of The Undertaker.

How does Randy Orton get these thoughts in the head?  Maybe it’s the voices he hears?  One of those voices might tell Randy he will be taken to Suplex City, and get his ass kicked.  If he hears any other voices, that is full of, malarkey.

Let’s just say this again, Brock Lesnar will kick your ass.  Randy doesn’t have a chance to win, so let’s just say Randy needs to survive.  Because he might not go to the hospital, or maybe he will get a chance to wrestle before the end of 2016.  How can he do that?  One RKO.  Because Randy won’t hit a RKO, he isn’t man enough to hit a RKO.

And just like that, Orton hits a RKO.

He tells Heyman he can do it, and runs off into the crowd, when Foley and Stephanie come out with security.

Orton does his awesome “Legend Killer” pose, as we end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The show was okay, certainly not as good as last week, but the ending was fantastic.  And we are on the way to showcase Lesnar vs Orton.  I can’t wait to see what happens tomorrow, when Orton speaks.  Will we see Lesnar show up?  RKO out of nowhere will give you a ticket to Viperville, anytime.

WWE Monday Night Raw 7/25/16….A New Era has Begun

A new entrance theme tonight, and this feels new.  Will we be saying the same thing after 3 hours tonight?

Raw is now.

A new broadcast table, like WCW Nitro was back in the day.  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

We are live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon welcome us to the show, and introduce the entire Raw roster.

Mick will be working hand in hand with every worker on Raw, to give us the best opportunity to succeed.

Stephanie now brings the attention to Roman Reigns dropping the ball last night.

Seth Rollins had it in the bag, and as far as she is concerned, he isn’t just a good guy, he isn’t a bad guy, he is just a loser.

WWE fans deserve a World Champion, the world deserves a World Champion, and that is what we will get.

Foley announces tonight, there will be 2 Fatal 4-Way matches.  The 2 winners will face each other tonight in the main event, and the winner of that match faces Seth Rollins at Summerslam, to become the new WWE Universal Champion.

The 8 men announced are Sami Zayn, Sheamus, Chris Jericho, Cesaro, Roman Reigns, Rusev, Kevin Owens, and Finn Balor.

And of equal importance, the WWE Women’s Champion has remained on Raw.  So Charlotte, step forward.

She did lose last night, when she tapped out to Sasha Banks.  And that is why she is defending the WWE Women’s Championship, and her opponent is “The Boss” Sasha Banks.

The first Fatal 4-way match starts now.

Our first Fatal 4-Way match is Rusev Vs Cesaro Vs Owens Vs Balor.

Balor wins the match with a Coup De Gras, pinning Rusev.  A great match here, and he advances to the main event, later tonight.

Tonight, it’s a New Day Celebration, for being the longest reigning WWE Tag Team Champions.

Nia Jaz debuts on Raw, next.

Nia Jaz is here to crush somebody, and she does.

Is her name Britt Baker?  Does it matter?  Nia destroyed her.

Sasha Banks is getting ready for her title match.  Golden Truth are playing Pokemon Go.

Tom Phillips catches up with Sasha.

She thrives pressure, and tonight she finally gets to expose her.  She has had a dream of being Women’s Champion since she was 10 years old, and tonight that dream will become a reality.  Tonight, it’s about to be lit.

Our next Fatal 4-Way is next.

“The Beast” is back next week on Raw.

Our second Fatal 4-Way match is now.

Chris Jericho Vs Sami Zayn Vs Sheamus Vs Roman Reigns.

Reigns wins the match with spearing Jericho.

Another good match, but we know where this is going, right?

Balor Vs Reigns, later tonight.

The New Day’s Celebration is next.

OHHHHHHH PITTSBURGH!!  DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR, GET UP ON YOUR FEET, AND CLAP FOR YOUR WORLD-FAMOUS 2-TIME WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!

IT’S A NEW DAY, YES IT IS!!

So their match last night at Battleground didn’t go as they planned, but for the past 337 days, The New Day has been your WWE Tag Team Champions!!

337 days ago, Jennifer Garner and Gwen Stefani were married, not to each other.

337 days ago Booty-O’s was a dream, but now at FYE, it’s an actual cereal.

Brought to you by Booty-O’s, they make sure you’re not booty.

We see a video of New Day.

New Day Rocks!!

That was a huge package.

In order to honor this glorious event, with this crowd, they should choose one lucky fan to be an honorary member of New Day.

But who?

They choose a big dude with a Booty-O’s T-shirt.

His name is Sonny Boy.

They aren’t asking for a nickname, what is his real name?

Sonny Boy.

His job is to celebrate with them, because….

New Day Rocks.

Here comes Gallows and Anderson.

Magic Killer on Big E.

Now they are taunting Sonny Boy.

Coming up next, the return of Neville.

Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show again.  Tonight, it’s Balor Vs Reigns, winner faces Rollins at Summerslam.  The winner becomes the first WWE Universal Champion.

Neville will now face “Mr. Irrelevant” Curtis Axel.

Neville wins with Red Arrow, great to see him back.

Up next, brought to you by Mountain Dew….Do the Dew.  WWE Women’s Championship on the line, Charlotte Vs “The Boss” Sasha Banks.

Mr. Backlund is giving Darren Young some advice.  Golden Truth interrupts, you don’t interrupt Mr. Backlund.

Finn Balor video is playing now.

Tonight, Balor Vs Reigns, with the winner facing Seth Rollins at Summerslam to become the first WWE Universal Champion.

Charlotte is with Tom Phillips.  Pressure is defending the Women’s Championship every night, and taking women’s wrestling another level.  Tonight, Sasha will be by herself, and Charlotte will ruin her dream, you can bank on that.

Sasha Banks in what will go down as the best Women’s match in the last year defeated Charlotte with the Bank Statement.

What a moment.

Byron tells us Sasha is the very first Women’s Champion of the new era.

What does this moment mean to her?

Crowd chanting she still got it, and she is looking around.

Sasha did it!!

This has been a dream since she was 10 years old.  She has been telling people she is the best.  Now this proves she is the best.  It’s a new era, it’s the Era Of “The Boss”.  It’s a new era of wrestling.

Crowd is chanting Sasha.

And she promises us every time she is in the ring, she is the best, and there is only one “Boss” and that is Sasha.

Our main event, still is Balor Vs Reigns.

Our next match is Braun Strowman Vs James Ellsworth.

Byron interviews James, and he more or less says he has a chance.

Next!!

Braun wins with the Reverse Chokeslam.

Video of Roman Empire is being shown.  I am sure the arena right now is booing.

More hunting with Golden Truth.

Enzo and Cass come out.

His name is Enzo Amore, and he is a bonafide stud, and you can’t teach that.  This guy right here is Big Cass.  He is 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.

Badda Boom, realest guys in the room, HOW YA DOIN’?

They like things Raw.

And they are going to face The Shining Stars, it seems.

There is only one word to describe Shining Stars, and he can spell it out for ya….

S.A.W.F.T…..

Golden Truth come out to distract Primo, and Cass gave him the big boot.

Our main event, Balor Vs Reigns is next.  Both men wished each other luck.

Next week, “The Beast” Brock Lesnar returns.

Balor Vs Reigns is now.

Balor wins the match with Coup De Gras.  Holy crap, we are going to see Rollins Vs Balor at Summerslam.

I never, ever would have guessed that.  What a moment.

Todd Phillips asks Reigns for his thoughts.  He said he hopes Finn beats Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship, because he has a tremendous amount of respect for him, and hopes he faces him again.

Raw ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

By far the best Raw of the year, and honestly, it might be the best Raw I have ever seen.  This felt like a brand new era, with Sasha winning Women’s Title, and we will get to see Balor Vs Rollins at Summerslam.  Incredible.

I can’t stand that title name though, and I am sure I won’t like the championship look, since I am not a fan of the current WWE Championship look.  But we will see.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Smackdown better serve notice tomorrow night, Raw certainly set the bar high.
