Commentators:  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves

Video:  Goldberg Returns Tonight!!

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

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

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

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

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

Match Number 1:  Seth Rollins Vs Chris Jericho

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

Winner:  Seth Rollins (Via Pinfall)

Video:  Goldberg’s WCW debut

Tonight:  Goldberg Returns

Segment Number 3:  Lita’s interview with Charlotte

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

Tonight:  Lita talks with Sasha

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

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

Winners:  The Golden Truth and Mark Henry.

Next:  Big E Vs Sheamus

Segment Number 5:  Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens backstage

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

Match Number 3:  Big E Vs Sheamus

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

Winner:  Big E. (Via Pinfall)

Video:  Goldberg Vs Hollywood Hogan

Tonight:  Goldberg Returns

Earlier Tonight:  Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel

Match Number 4:  Bo Dallas Vs Neville

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

Winner:  Bo Dallas (Via Pinfall)

Next:  Dana Brooke Vs Bayley

Match Number 5:  Dana Brooke Vs Bayley

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

Winner:  Dana Brooke (Via Pinfall)

Segment Number 9:  Paul Heyman

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

Tonight:  Lana and Rusev has a message for Reigns

Match Number 6:  Braun Strowman Vs The Mile High Trio

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

Next:  Rusev and Lana

Segment Number 11:  Sami Zayn

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

Segment Number 12:  Lana and Rusev

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

Video:  The Rusevs

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

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

Tonight:  Goldberg Returns

Video:  Emmalution is coming to WWE Raw

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.

Video:  Goldberg Vs HHH

Tonight:  Goldberg Returns

Next:  Cruiserweight action.

Match Number 8:  The Brian Kendrick, Drew Gulak, and Tony Nese Vs T.J. Perkins (WWE Cruiserweight Champion), Cedrick Alexander, and Rich Swann

Brian made Rick tap out to Captain’s Hook, picking up the win.

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

Segment Number 17:  Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley

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

Videos:  From last two weeks.

Segment Number 18:  Goldberg

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

Kevin’s Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

Winner:  Double Countout (Reigns is still US Champion)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Segment 4:  Cesaro, Sheamus, and Mick Foley

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

Match Number 3:  Bayley Vs Anna Fields

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

Winner of Match:  Bayley

Segment Number 5:  Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley.

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

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

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

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

Winners:  Cedrick Alexander and Richard Swann

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

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

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

Winners:  Sheamus and Cesaro

Video Package:  TJ Perkins

Segment Number 8:  Promo with TJ Perkins.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Segment Number 10:  Seth Rollins and Mick Foley

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

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

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

Winner:  TJ Perkins (WWE Cruiserweight Champion)

Video:  Hispanic Heritage Month:  Pedro Morales.

Next:  Highlight Reel

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winners:  Jericho and Owens.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

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

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 9/12/16….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 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.

Send me your thoughts on the show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 8/22/16….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.
