Tonight Monday Night Raw comes to us live from Seattle! Brock Lesnar is again the main focus of all advertisement as The Beast has been around since the Royal Rumble build-up. Last week we saw him get confronted by Dean Ambrose and then F-5 him later in the evening. What kind of show will Lesnar put on this week? Also, we saw what is one of the most odd combinations come together last week. As Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks come together thanks to their hatred of WWE Diva's Champion Charlotte. How long will that duo last before they inevitably implode? Will the mishaps between the "brothers" Dean and Roman eventually lead them to have a little heat with one another? Find out tonight!
They start the show with a video tribute to Daniel Bryan who is expected to announce his retirement from in ring action tonight. Use the #ThankyouDanielBryan on Twitter to show your support to one of the professions absolute best!
PROMO: Stephanie McMahon is in the ring with what seems to be a contract signing set up. It is a contract signing for the main event at FastLane, but as she is explaining the stipulations to the match she is stopped by an amazingly loud "Daniel Bryan" chant. She plays it beautifully though by saying the winner will not face Daniel Bryan, but instead her husband HHH. Then Dean comes out to interrupt because he is ready to get this over with so he can settle his beef with the "overgrown ape", Brock Lesnar. As Stephanie is in the midst of explaining to Dean that he doesn't tell her what to do, out comes another man in the main event at FastLane, Roman Reigns. Roman is also tired of the wait, and is ready to team up with Ambrose to take on Lesnar. Stephanie lays the seed of doubt in Dean by saying "Isn't it odd that every time you have a moment, Roman comes out to ruin it?" She then introduces the third man in the FastLane main event, Brock Lesnar. He comes to the ring accompanied by Paul Heyman. Dean signs the contract with his eyes locked on Brock, Roman is next, and then Lesnar signs. Stephanie quickly leaves after all three men sign. Paul Heyman grabs a mic and targets Dean Ambrose. Telling him that he should ask Reigns what a Brock Lesnar beat down feels like. Brock urges Dean to take a stand and the brawl starts. Lesnar F-5's Ambrose after tossing him into Reigns and then gets ready to leave. Before he can out comes the champ, HHH. HHH and Steph stand on the stage and stare down Brock and Paul who are on the ramp.
MATCH: Kevin Owens vs. Dolph Ziggler
This match. Again.
KO starts off with a clothesline and his cannonball maneuver for a two-count. KO stays on top by keeping Ziggler on the mat with knees, kicks, and even choking him all while he is talking serious trash. Which is why I love Owens. Ziggler then locks in a sleeper out of nowhere, but both men then topple to the outside.
We come back with Owens in control again. Throwing elbows and knees, and then a senton for a two-count. Dolph hits him with a surprise boot, and then steps out of the way for Owens to hit the post. Then Ziggler hits two clotheslines, a swinging neck breaker, and an elbow for a two-count. Owens then hits a nasty super kick out of nowhere for a two-count. KO goes for the pop-up powerbomb, but Dolph lands on his feet and hits a DDT and KO rolls under the ropes. Ziggler goes to the outside and hits a Famouser onto floor. Both men get into the ring at the count of 9. Owens goes for a cannonball again but Ziggler rolls out of the way and then rolls up Owens for a three-count with the help of the ropes.
Owens destroys ringside in pure anger after Dolph cheats to win.
RESULT: Dolph Ziggler wins via pin fall.
THOUGHTS: These two have fought so much that I didn't have much interest in it to start. They pulled me in however, and Dolph cheating to win was pretty good twist. Not bad.
PROMO: The Usos and The Dudleys are backstage. The Dudleys ask The Usos about their tables match against New Day later tonight. The Dudleys say they should have a tables match. They then say it should be both teams together against The New Day in a tables match.
MATCH: Charlotte vs. Alicia Fox
Alicia actually gets the upperhand to start, but Charlotte doesn't take long to comeback. This match is incredibly slow and boring, and the crowd shows their displeasure with their "We want Sasha" chants. Charlotte is however mocking and talking trash to Alicia while she annihilates her. Which is nice. I enjoy a heel that does that. Alicia starts a little bit of a comeback with horrible looking drop kicks. She goes for a roll up for a two-count and then Charlotte hits a spear. She then lock in the Figure Eight for the win.
RESULT: Charlotte wins via submission.
MIZ TV WITH CHRIS JERICHO/ HIGHLIGHT REEL WITH THE MIZ: The Miz talks about how his show is supposed to help superstars set themselves apart from others. But last week that didn't happen when AJ Styles jumped Miz on his own show. Jericho then comes and immediately tells Miz to "shut the hell up" and that no one wants to see Miz TV, but would rather see Highlight Reel hosted by Y2J himself. Then a crew comes in dismantles Miz TV and sets up The Highlight Reel set. The Miz obviously gets mad because he isn't the guest, but the host. Jericho then brings up Mizs' rough week as he got his teeth knocked out on SmackDown. The surgery in full cost Miz over $20,000 so he says. Y2J then starts singing "All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth" and the crowd follows him. The Miz then plays Styles' Raw debut when he beat Jericho. The Miz then brings up how that loss probably eats him up, and Jericho agrees. Then Jericho asks if Styles has what it takes to beat him twice. Which Styles will have that chance this week on SmackDown. As Styles is entering to say his two cents, Miz attacks Jericho, then Styles and Jericho attack Miz working together before a stare down ensues. They then start to brawl. Jericho is tossed outside, throws Miz over the announce table, and then leaves the ring.
MATCH: Ryback vs. Bray Wyatt
Ryback starts off on top as the rest of The Wyatt Family lurks at ringside. Bray catches Ryback off guard and both men go to the outside of the ring.
Bray is on top when we come back from commercial, but then eats the steel post as Ryback moves out of the way of a charging Bray. Ryback then hits a big flying cross body for a two-count. As Ryback is going for his big clothesline Bray catches him for the Sister Abigail to get the victory.
The Wyatt Family then mugs and beats Ryback in the ring.
RESULT: Bray Wyatt wins via pin fall.
THOUGHTS: I LOVE Rybacks new look, and I also love Bray picking up a clean win.
PROMO: Renee Young asks New Day if they have found a partner for their 8 man tag match yet. They say no but finding one won't be hard to find one because everyone loves them.
PROMO: Dean and Roman are talking about going after Lesnar. Dean says he doesn't need Romans help because he wants to do this on his own.
MATCH: Titus O'Neil vs. Adam Rose
Adam Rose has the rest of The Social Outcasts in his corner. I LOVE these guys.
Adam Rose nicknames himself the "Radical Mongoose" which is fantastic.
Titus starts off by destroying Adam Rose. Adam comes back with a drop kick, and then attacks the knees. He has an obvious strategy of keeping Titus grounded. But Titus got up. Which was bad for Adam as he got tossed across the ring and dismantled by Titus. The Social Outcasts pulled Adam out of the ring, but then Titus runs through every member of The Social Outcasts. Adam rolls up Titus for a surprising win!
RESULT: Adam Rose wins via pin fall.
THOUGHTS: YES! I love The Social Outcasts. Entertainment potential out the wazoo.
PROMO: Dean Ambrose heads to the ring to call out Brock Lesnar. Dean spits a lot of fire while calling Lesnar out. Eventually the Beast answers after Ambrose says that Heyman holds his balls for him.. The brawl begins quickly! And Lesnar is the clear leader of that brawl. After a while, Lesnar hits another F-5 without Dean even putting up a fight. Lesnar tries to leave, but then Ambrose invites Lesnar to the ring again. Before anything can happen, out comes Reigns. Even though Ambrose didn't want help so expect this to cause problems. As Reigns is entering, Ambrose hits a low blow and then leaves the ring giving an "I told you so" to Reigns as he leaves.
MATCH: The Lucha Dragons vs. League of Nations
Alberto Del Rio and Rusev will represent LON.
Del Rio pins Kalisto for the win.
RESULT: League of Nations win via pin fall.
THOUGHTS: Not a bad match. I just don't have any emotional investment in either team.
MATCH: Becky Lynch vs. Tamina (w Naomi)
Sasha Banks joins the commentary team.
Tamina starts off using her power as an advantage. Naomi comes in with a cheapshot as well. After another powerful slam, Becky kicks out at two. Sasha gets up to cheer on Becky and Naomi just goes after Sasha and damn near kills her. Becky goes out to help and stops Naomi. Tamina super kicks Becky for the win as soon as she gets in the ring.
RESULT: Tamina wins via pin fall.
THOUGHTS: I'm more excited to see Becky and Sasha team again like the NXT days.
PROMO: The New Day is trying to woo someone to team with them. And that someone is Mark Henry.
TABLES MATCH: The New Day & Mark Henry vs. The Usos & The Dudley Boyz
No way I can actually cover this well enough for you guys. I'll tell you who wins and how!
The New Day tries to tell Mark Henry to splash someone and he gets mad and leaves. Because no one tells him what to do.
The Dudley Boyz 3D Big E through a table for the win.
The Dudley Boyz turn on The Usos after the match! Putting both of them through a table! I love it.
RESULT: The Usos & The Dudley Boyz win.
THOUGHTS: That was a good, fun match. But the heel turn was even better.
DANIEL BRYANS RETIREMENT ADDRESS: The stage is set for what everyone hopes is a repeat of the 2013 Mark Henry fake out retirement. Ironically, I'm pretty sure he has the same haircut Edge had on his retirement day.. Bryan stands in the center of the ring, eyes closed, soaking in every little bit he can with a giant smile. I'm pretty sure the crowd would chant all night if he let them. With a shaky voice he explains how this feels so much different than anything he has ever felt. In classic Daniel Bryan fashion, he addresses the elephant in the room, the trimmed beard. Getting a laugh from what is a very emotional crowd. Seeing the kids cry just reminds you how real this is for people. Bryan explains his rocky career with a battle against concussions. He says its finally gotten to a point, even though he's fought it, that he cannot wrestle anymore. Even though he had trained, prepared, and fought to be ready for WWE because he loves this unlike anything else. The goose bumps grow as the "Thank you Daniel" chants ring louder and louder. With a smile on his face he brings up that he has a family, and they want to have kids soon. As the "YES!" chants roll in he exclaims "That's what Brie says all the time!" and that gets a "That's what she said!" chant. He then officially announces his retirement, and his gratitude for the business he loves and something he has gotten to do for 16 years. He goes through a list of things that he loves. Standing in the back as his music hits, his Superman dive, he's wrestled in gas station parking lot and then in front of 70,000 people, and the people that he's met. Kane, William Regal, the children he has met like Connor. "Grateful". He then recalls his, with a very emotional voice, how the crowd got behind him like no other superstar in recent WWE history. He then brings up, in the very arena he is retiring in, he and the "YES! movement" hijacked Raw. He then recalls his father standing in that very arena watching him get that reaction, and that was the last time his dad ever got to see him wrestle. Grateful for wrestling bringing him his wife. He is grateful for this moment with his family, his friends, and these amazing people he has met. Tomorrow he starts a new life as a non-wrestler, but that's tomorrow. Not tonight. He signs off in the most Daniel Bryan way possible.. With a "YES!" chant that would blow the roof off of any building in the world. Thank you, Daniel Bryan.
