After a big night at Night of Champions what will Raw hold for us? What will Kevin Owens have to say about beating Ryback and winning his first Intercontinental Championship? How will The Dudley Boyz react to getting screwed out of their Tag Team Championships? John Cena may bring back the United States Championship Open Challenge after a big win over Seth Rollins. Speaking of Seth Rollins.. After beating Sting and retaining his WWE World Heavyweight Championship he avoided a cash in from Sheamus, but not in the way he hoped to. A big surprise in the form of The Demon Kane, with the mask and everything, ended any hopes Sheamus had of cashing in as he choke-slammed the crap out of both superstars! Is this foreshadowing to Seth Rollins vs. Kane inside the devils favorite structure, hell in a cell, at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view?
PROMO: The opening promo of the night belongs to The Wyatt Family fresh off their big win over Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and the shocking return of "Y2J" Chris Jericho last night at Night of Champions. Bray starts off by saying he tried to warn Roman with his words and actions, but apparently he did not do that well enough. He then, of course, brags about his big win saying he brought the man on top of the mountain to his knees. It didn't take long for Roman to come join the party after that as he makes his way through the crowd without Ambrose at his side. After a long stare down with the family, Roman says that since it started with them two, it should end with the two of them challenging Bray to a match tonight without Braun and Luke at his side. After Bray turns it down, he accuses him of being scared. He then says it does not need to be an official match they can just have a true fight. Braun and Luke then leave the ring as the two go to war. Roman just starts beating Bray senseless as this promo quickly turns into a brawl. Roman hits a big Superman punch, and then in comes Braun and Luke Harper as they beat down on Roman. Then comes Dean Ambrose! Dean takes out Harper and knocks Stroman off the apron. After two suicide dives do nothing to Braun, he hits one big punch and knocks down Ambrose and Reigns gets one as well. This fight continues as Stroman continues to dominate and the "Y2J" chants start. Harper continues to maul Reigns and Braun on Roman. Then out comes not Y2J, but Randy Orton! Orton goes to town on The Wyatts, but Harper pulls him out of the ring. Orton drops him on the announce table, and heads for Stroman. Stroman, who seems to be unstoppable, gains the upperhand. After a drop kick and a Superman punch Stroman is knocked out of the ring as Orton, Ambrose, and Reigns control the ring in a chaotic brawl to start the show. GREAT kickoff to the show!
PROMO: We go to the back where Seth is talking to The Authority, but it ends up being Kane in The Authority's office as "Cooperate Kane" pretending he has no idea what Seth is talking about when he brings up stopping Kane from attacking him tonight. Seth apologizes for injuring and attacking Kane weeks ago, but becomes immediately confused when Kane plays dumb. Kane, as Director of Operations, then says Seth will have his rematch for the US Title tonight on Raw. This new Kane.. is HYSTERICAL.
MATCH: Stardust & The Ascension vs. Neville & The Lucha Dragons
This is a rematch from the Night of Champions Kickoff Show where Stardust and The Ascension picked up the win. It starts off with Sin Cara and Konnor as Konnor uses his size and strength to gain the advantage. He throws Sin Cara on the apron, Sin Cara hits a big kick but then slips on the top rope. Konnor takes advantage and tags in Stardust, and then Stardust tags in Viktor. Viktor hits a quick move and then tags Konnor back in again. Konnor uses his weight to establish a choke hold, and then throws Sin Cara to the floor. After stomping away at him in the corner, Stardust is tagged in. A big kick to the midsection and then an attempted slam, but Sin Cara rolls through and tags in Neville. Neville then uses his speed and beats on Stardust with some big kicks. The Ascension then get involved and send Neville crashing to the floor.
When we come back from break we see Stardust on top with Neville being beaten on. Stardust quickly tags in Konnor as they use a double team move and pin combo, but Neville kicks out at two. Neville shows some fire and begins to fight back, but is quickly shut down. After a cover by Viktor, Neville kicks out at two again. Neville tries to fight back, but is again beaten to the punch. Stardust is on off the tag again, and hits Neville with a unique submission maneuver. Neville fights out and gets himself some room to attempt a tag. He was too far away although as he could not reach his corner in time, but reverses a move to tag in Kalisto. Kalisto comes in with kicks for everyone. Big move after big move from Kalisto, and a suicide dive by Sin Cara turns this match into mayhem. Kalisto then hits his finisher, Salida del Sol, for the win!
RESULT: Neville and The Lucha Dragons pick up the win.
THOUGHTS: Great tag match! Quick paced, big moves from both teams, and very entertaining!
PROMO: Rollins is talking to The Authrity who just arrived about what happened with Kane. The Authority has no idea what he is talking about with Kane being the Director of Operations. HHH tells Seth to focus on winning back his title, and they will worry about Kane.
Kevin Owens joins the commentary crew at ringside.
MATCH: Ryback vs. Bo Dallas
Ryback looks to get back on the horse here tonight after losing his Intercontinental Championship to Kevin Owens last night at Night of Champions. Bo Dallas goes on one of his "Bolieve" speeches. Ryback wastes little time taking it to Bo. With shoulder tackles, and splashed in the corner. Then a huge slam and some punches. Ryback is eating Bo Dallas alive and looking at Owens every chance he gets. Big slam after big slam from Ryback. Dallas tries to fight back, but is shut down. After a bg move, Ryback gets a two-count. Dallas then gets a boot to the face of Ryback and gets the upper hand. A lot of knees to the face later, Bo Dallas gets a two-count of his own. Dallas then puts a chin lock on Ryback in the middle of the ring wearing him down. Ryback uses his strength to get out of it with a big slam, and then sets up for the Meathook Clothesline which connects in a big way. Ryback then hits a Shellshock for the win and is attacked by KO. KO goes for a pop-up powerbomb but gets clotheslined and scurries away.
RESULT: Ryback wins by pinfall.
THOUGHTS: This wasn't terrible. It was obviously to set up the rematch Ryback has coming more than likely at Hell in a Cell. It was.. Okay to see Bo Dallas back on TV I guess..
CHARLOTTE'S VICTORY CELEBRATION: We are welcomed back from commercial break by Ric Flair coming to the ring! Nature Boy looking as good as ever, but who would not be as happy as can be when you're a 16x World Champion, 2x Hall of Famer, and your daughter just won her first ever Divas Championship? Ric starts off saying how proud he is as a father as the crowd says "THANK YOU, RIC!". The Nature Boy goes on to say how special of a moment it was for him to be there as his daughter won her first title. What a great way to get Charlotte over by the way. Who doesn't listen to The Nature Boy? He then introduces Charlotte to come down to the ring followed by her PCB team members Paige and Becky Lynch. Charlotte takes a minute to compose herself as they both start crying. Charlotte goes on to say how much she idolized her father and how much she wanted to be just like him growing up. She then goes on to thank her team members, Paige and Becky. Saying it was a dream to team with them, and that they are now her best friends. (Paige does not seem to be enjoying this as much). Charlotte especially thanks Paige as they started in NXT together, and she was an inspiration. Paige then takes the mic, I sense a turn coming.. THERE IT IS! Paige then says this would not have happened without her. She says this is far too patronizing like Charlotte just got inducted into the HOF. Calling Charlotte a place holder, and Becky the least relevant of everyone. Paige then rips into the entire Divas division. Calling out Natty, The Bellas, literally everyone. This is Paige's pipebomb moment and its beautiful. What a freaking promo, my goodness. Paige leaves and out comes Nikki, Brie, and Alicia. Nikki says this is what happens. Everyone gets jealous when you're on top and Charlotte can not handle it. Saying she is gonna win the rematch and that Charlotte will fight Brie next!
MATCH: Brie Bella vs. Charlotte
We come back from break with the two already fighting. Brie is on top right now holding Charlotte down with a choke hold although it does not seem to be affecting Charlotte much at all. Charlotte then takes a little too long and Brie hits a big missle drop kick for a two-count. Both women go to the apron and then fall to the floor. Charlotte then eats a faceload of steel steps, and starts holding that knee that Nikki targeted last night. Brie now does the same and targets that knee with a barrage of kicks and leg sweeps. Brie goes for a figure four leglock, but Charlotte gets out of I. She can not capitalize as Brie goes right back for the knee. A big drop kick keeps Charlotte on the floor, and the knee continues to be damaged. Brie picks Charottes off of the floor, but she starts to fight back. As soon as it started, it ends as Brie goes back to the knee of Charlotte. Then Flair gets a kick in and backslide pin for a two-count. Then the chops come. After a big neck-breaker Charlotte hits the spear and locks in the Figure Eight as Brie taps out.
RESULT: Charlotte submits Brie with the Figure Eight.
THOUGHTS: Good match, but nothing compares to that pipe bomb Paige dropped before hand. I love heel Paige and I welcome her back!
MATCH: Sheamus vs. Mark Henry
Sheamus is looking for a pick-me-up tonight after trying to cash-in the Money in the Bank contract last night, but being stopped by Kane. Mark Henry starts the "You look stupid chants" and then hits Sheamus with a big slam and he rolls out of the ring. Sheamus then goes to town with punches and upper cuts but they have no effect. Henry slams him again, and Sheamus leavesa the ring again. He is picked up by his Mohawk, and then gets his ounches blocked and slammed back in the ring. Sheamus then hits a tiny Brogue kick out of nowhere, and then the big Brogue kick for the win.
RESULT: Sheamus pins Mark Henry
THOUGHTS: This was weird. Sheamus had literally no offense except two Brogue kicks, and won. Why does Mark Henry stick around for this?
PROMO: Kane and The Authority are in the office backstage. The Authority seems a little confused about Kane being back since they haven't heard from him since the injury. They tell him he came back last night and Kane says he has no idea what they are talking about. This split personality is awesome. Steph says everyone needs to be on the same page. Steph asks for the mask back, and Kane says she should have it and she must have lost it. Kane tells them to have a great night and then leaves.
PROMO: We then are cut to Paige backstage. Natty shows up on camera, and says she is not the only frustrated Diva and she is being unprofessional. Paige says she has no room to talk since she has not even been here. Natty then says she has a match tonight and needs to get ready, and that the only person standing in the way of Paige, is Paige.
MATCH: The New Day & Rusev vs. The Dudley Boyz & Dolph Ziggler
The Dudleys are definitely looking for some retribution tonight as The New Day got themselves purposefully disqualified to retain their titles last night. Before the match New Day says that the Dudleys are a menace to society, and that they need to build a wall around Dudleyville so they cannot bother us anymore.
This match starts off with Ziggler and Kofi. Ziggler gets the upperhand, but is quickly reversed by Kofi. Some great chain wrestling ensues between Kofi and Dolph. Dolph gets a headlock and then a shoulder knock down. Kofi tries the slingshot across the ring but Dolph lands on his feet. Dolph tags in D-Von who takes it to Kofi with a brawling style. Kofi starts a comeback, but is quickly stopped with a neck-breaker. D-Von tags in Bubba as Rusev tries to get in the ring, but has nowhere to go and leaves the ring.
We come back to Ziggler drop kicking Big E. After a distraction from Xavier, Big E gets a big slam in and tags in Rusev. Rusev puts Ziggler in their corner as everyone stomps away at him. After everyone dances to Xavier playing his trombone, which is amazing since he was playing Rusevs theme song, Rusev starts to dominate Ziggler. Rusev stops Ziggler from getting a tag and tags in Big E. Big E then puts an abdominal stretch on Ziggler who fights out and gets some space for a tag although he can not get there in time as Kofi stops him. Kofi goes to town with kicks and punches for a two-count. Kofi tries to get a head lock in but Ziggler fights out only to eat a drop kick from Kofi for a two-count. Big E then comes in but tags in Rusev for a triple team move. Rusev lands a big kick to Zigglers abs. Rusev goes for a splash in the corner but Ziggler side steps him. Dolph then hits a big DDT, and tags in Bubba who goes for Kofi who was just tagged in as well. Bubba takes out everyoneand then Kofi with a big side slam and a Rock bottom type move. Bubba tags in D-Von to take on Rusev who was also tagged in. Then they tag in Dolph for the flying headbutt! Dolph and Rusev are all that's left in the ring. Dolph hits a big super kick to Xavier but Rusev hits a kick off the distraction for the win.
RESULT: The New Day and Rusev win by pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Entertaining match! New Day and The Dudleys are always entertaining. Just give Xavier a trombone and we have pure magic.
MATCH: Naomi (with Sasha & Tamina) vs. Natalya
This match starts with a few shoves from Naomi, but Natty will have none of it. Natalya then has Naomi in the corner just hitting her with all she has. After a big kick, Naomi has the upper hand and then a two-count. After another two-count Naomi puts on a headlock and then a head slam right into the turnbuckle. Then Natty gets a quick roll up for a two-count. Naomi then regains the upper hand choking her on the ropes. Natty uses a quick series of moves ending with a drop kick. After distraction from Team B.A.D Naomi hits the Rear View for the win.
RESULT: Naomi wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: his match was too short to really be anything special. Give me more Sasha Banks though.
PROMO: We go to the back with Seth and The Authoruty talking about Kane. HHH and Steph think that Kane got everything out of his system last night. Seth disagrees and starts to argue, but Hunter will have none of it. Telling him to stop worrying about it and to focus on Cena. Seth leaves unpleased.
MATCH: Cesaro vs. Big Show
Cesaro uses his speed to get in a few uppercuts but then meets a huge right hand. Big SHow takes control after that using his size to get power slams and headbutts in. After running Cesaro over he picks him up just to slap him with that Titanic sized hand. Arguing witht eh crowd the entire match so far, Big Show is still dominating. Show then lands a big elbow, but Cesaro kicks out at two. Show then locks in a choke hold in the middle of the ring. Cesaor gets to his feet, only to be thrown back to the ground. Big Show goes for another elbow, but no one is there to feel it as he hits the mat. Cesaro then hits upper cut after upper cut running across the ring to hit them. Then a dropkick knocks the giant over, but Cesaro is caught after attempting a suicide dive outside the ring and the running his back into the ring post. Cesaro then tries the unthinkable by attempting a suplex back into the ring. After two attempt, the third one finally works. Clearly hurt, Cesaro eats a knock out punch for the loss. Big Show points to Cesaro on the floor, saying its a message for Lesnar. Show also states that he has beaten Lesnar before as the "Suplex City" chants start.
RESULT: Big Show wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Sad to see Cesaro used this way. This is obviously being done to make Big Show look good before brock Lesnar dominates him a week from Saturday at Madison Square Garden.
PROMO: The Wyatt Family shows up on screen talking about Randy Orton and how "all shall fall". Braun Stroman tells us he ate a snake once.. It was weird..
UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: John Cena (c) vs. Seth Rollins
This is Seth Rollins' rematch from Night of Champions last night where he lost to Cena. Which was another great match between these two. Cena has been having a hell of a year in the ring, and Rollins is just an incredible athlete so I expect nothing less from these two.
Seth Rollins wastes little time going after Cena. Cena was in the middle of throwing his shirt to the crowd as Rollins attacked. Rollins goes for a quick pin but only gets two. He stays on top of the game here with a choke on the ropes for the entire four count and gets another two-count. Three big punches to Cena takes him to the floor. Another two-count. Rollins goes for the Pedigree early but Cena counters attempting a STF but Rollins gets the ropes. With Cena in thr corner Rollins hits a big splash for another two-count. Cena shows his heart and starts to fight back in, he goes for an AA but Seth rolls into a pin for a two-count.
We come back with Seth Rollins in control. Seth drops a big choke hold in the middle of the ring putting all his weight on Cena. Cena drives Seth into a corner, breaking the hold, but then gets clotheslined for a two-count. Seth and Cena both showing effects of their match last night, but Cena is certainly struggling right now. Then Cena starts roaring back with his shoulder tackles. Then of course the five-knuckle shuffle. Rollins then wisely leaves the ring to catch a break. Cena although brings him back to the ring, but ehn gets caught o the top rope in superplex position. After a headbutt knocks Rollins off the ropes Cena goes for a pin but gets two. Rollins then snaps up with a kick, but gets a two-count. Cena then goes for the AA but Rollins slides though. Rollins then locks in Cena's own STF. Cena then beings to power out of the STF, but Rollins grabs the ropes. He then uses that big knee from the top rope to knock Cena down for a two-count. Rollins goes for the Pedigree, Cena counters with an electric chair, but only gets a two-count. Cena usesa huge shot to the kidneys, and then the two trade haymakers in the middle of the ring. Almost hitting an AA turns into an almost Pedigree which goes back to an almost AA back into an almost Pedigree. It all ends with Seth throwing Cena into the ropes in the corner. Rollins goes for that big corkscrew off the top rope, misses it but lands on his feet and then gets caught inn the STF. Rollins reaches the ropes although. Rollins goes to the top rope again, but this time hits a frog splash but Cena rolls through for an AA for the win.
Kane then comes on screen saying that some people are gunning for his title, some people you wouldn't even imagine in your worst nightmares. Then The Demon Kane shows up coming through the ring and then grabs Seth and drags him under the ring with him!
REULTS: Cena wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Like I said earlier, Cena has had amazing match after amazing match this ear. This was no different. another great match by these two guys, and the classic Kane coming from underneath the ring to take Seth with him was awesome as well!
