Welcome to the first week of the Kevin Owens Show! Unless you were totally cut off from the wrestling world for an entire week, you know that KO is our new WWE Universal Champion after winning one of the greatest Raw main events of all time last week. However, Kevin Owens winning his first Universal Championship wasn't the only thing that sent shockwaves through the wrestling community. The man that helped him win that title was a returning Triple H who not only Pedigreed one of his biggest rivals in Roman Reigns, but also turned his back on the man he was seemingly prepping to be his successor in Seth Rollins. The Pedigree to Seth not only surprised Seth himself but the look of shock on his wife's face, and the look of anger on Raw GM Mick Foley's is a story soon to unfold in itself. Will we see HHH again this week? Last week we were given a lot of questions, so hopefully this week we get some answers.
PROMO (In-Ring): Our Raw GM & Commissioner are joined by Kevin Owens who claims that this is the Kevin Owens Show. It isn't long before Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring, and it isn't for Kevin Owens. He goes straight to Stephanie and claims that Stephanie knew her husband would cost him the match last week. He says that he has no problem with Kevin, who then jumps in and says that The Architect is just writing the blue print for failure. He attacks KO, and Stephanie jumps in and says Seth is indefinitely suspended. Then, finally, our GM jumps in and says that he is not suspended, but the exact opposite. He says that Stephanie is acting like this is personal even though it isn't, and when he was hired of GM he was promised the power to create matches. Here at WWE they hand out rematches and not suspensions. Therefore Seth Rollins will take on Kevin Owens at Clash of Champions for the WWE Universal Championship. Neither Kevin Owens or the Raw commissioner are happy.
PROMO (Backstage): Mick and Stephanie are backstage, and Steph says that he better not ever usurp her authority ever again. Mick claims that he did it to make sure people didn't say anything about her, because he cares about her image. Then, KO comes in and says "Way to handle things, Mick." as claims that he supports the type of behavior Seth showed earlier in the show, and even encourages it by offering a championship match. Mick then makes a new match for tonight, Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn, for encouragement in Owens attitude. Then we are joined by the champs best friend, Chris Jericho, who says this is no way to treat the longest reigning WWE Universal Champion, which is gold. Y2J calls them both "stupid idiots", and he is met with a match against Seth Rollins later tonight. Much to the approval of Stephanie McMahon.
MATCH: Charlotte(w Dana Brooke) vs. Bayley
RESULTS: Bayley wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: This match wasn't nearly as good as it could've been. These two have had much better matches, but Bayley picking up the win over the Women's Champion is a big move. It probably means she won't win the title when it counts, but it was a good moment.
PROMO (In-Ring): Charlotte and Dana are backstage, and Charlotte says that her directions were not difficult. She says that all she had to do was watch her match and take notes but instead she caused her to get embarrassed on Raw by the girl who doesn't belong and slaps her.
MATCH: Bo Dallas vs. Kyle Roberts
RESULTS: Bo Dallas wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: First off, Bo Dallas? On TV? Second, a squash match? For Bo Dallas? Wow.
PROMO (Backstage): Kevin Owens & Y2J are backstage talking about how they're best friends, and how he is going to give Rollins the gift of Jericho. Because KO is his best friend.
MATCH: Chris Jericho vs. Seth Rollins
RESULTS: Seth Rollins wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: A great match by two of the best in the business. The storytelling between these two from their promos to their match was great.
MATCH: Cesaro vs. Sheamus
This is match three in their best of seven series. A series that Sheamus leads 2-0.
RESULTS: Sheamus wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: With the fourth match being on Superstars this coming Wednesday, I feel a sweep is possible. But more than likely Cesaro comes back with a roaring 4-3 series win after winning four in a row. Only time will tell.
MATCH: The Shining Stars vs. Enzo Amore & Big Cass
RESULTS: The Shining Stars win via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Seeing The Shining Stars win makes me sick because I hate them, but seeing them beat Enzo & Cass is even worse. I wonder what would've happened if Enzo had not gotten injured during that match with The Vaudevillians. Enzo & Cass could be champs instead of losing to The Shining Stars.
PROMO (Backstage): Tom asks Sami how it feels to be thrown back into things with Kevin Owens. Sami said that he thought when he beat KO that he'd be done with him and moving on, but instead he is directionless while Kevin is champion. The Kevin comes in and says that it wasn't long ago that he was chasing Sami. Sami got signed first, he was champ first, he got the main roster bump first.. But a WWE title was always the finish line, and Kevin won. Sami said this race is far from over and when he wins the WWE Universal Championship he won't need HHH to hand it to him.
MATCH: Nia Jax vs. Ann Esposito
RESULTS: Nia Jax wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: I'm ready to see Nia in a legit main roster match instead of another squash match.
PROMO(In-Ring): Anderson & Gallows, the retirement professionals, are here to show us a glimpse of The New Days soon to be years in retirement. From the Gallows and Anderson "Old Farts" Home, they bring us The Old Day. The Old Day have slower music, walkers, and one is on scooter. The first question is, what happened to you? The Old Day answers by saying that The Club beat the POP (Power of Positivity) out of them at Clash of Champions, and apparently old Big E shit himself, and then blew out a hip when doing the WWE Tag Team Champion hip gyrations. Then The New Day comes out to join their future selves. Kofi says that if it is really them from the future, it is too dangerous because even if they touched just a little the entire WWE Universe would explode so they then decide to beat up the bald guys. The Club flees. Both The Old Day and The New Day dance. Then one of them hits Big E with a walker, and New Day destroys Old Day. The crowd was dead nearly this entire promo.
MATCH: Darren Young(w Bob Backlund) vs. Jinder Mahal
Titus is on commentary for this one.
RESULTS: Darren Young wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Why should we care about Darren Young? That is just a legit question I have as a fan. We have no reason to care about what this guy does. Titus goes for that as well.
PROMO (Backstage): Nia Jax stops Alicia Fox who is coming out of the trainers room after checking on her friend Ann who was demolished by Nia in their last match. Nia sarcastically asks how her friend is doing, and Alicia takes offense. Nia says this isn't some reality TV show like Total Divas. There are repercussions for your actions. Alicia agrees and starts throwing things on the table, and hit Nia in the face with some sort of box, which by her reaction wasn't supposed to happen. Nia shoves Alicia on the table, and walks off as Alicia yells that they should talk it out like real women.
PROMO (Backstage): Tom Phillips asks Sin Cara why he requested this match tonight, and Sin Cara says that Braun disrespected the Lucha culture when he ripped off the mask of Americos last week. He won't let anyone disrespect his heritage.
MATCH: Braun Stroman vs. Sin Cara
RESULTS: Braun Stroman wins via count out.
THOUGHTS: I love Brauns new look. Having him beat down a bonafide guy in Sin Cara was a great move. If they build him up properly he could be a true monster in this business. I love it. Having him win via count out, while pointing to his head signaling a smart move, was a good choice too.
PROMO (In-Ring): Sasha Banks tweeted earlier today that she will be on Raw to deliver some bad news, Wade Barrett style, and the time is now. It is definitely good to see Sasha back on Raw though. Sasha starts off by saying that every story comes to an end, and every book has a final chapter. She started a revolution based off the foundation of Mae Young, Fabulous Moolah, Trish, Lita.. They wrote the first chapters, and they took it to the next level. No more bra and panties matches, no more butterfly titles.. They are legitimate superstars now. Sasha's revolution is every time she steps in the ring. She does it for every girl who dreams of something bigger, for people who know they can be something bigger. She used to collect cans just to raise money to come to shows, and being in the ring means everything to her. She says that at SummerSlam she was pushed beyond her limits, and Charlotte beat her straight up. She says that she has some bad news on her condition, and Dana Brooke interrupts. She says that Charlotte is the only champ they deserve. She made a promise to Charlotte, and she is going to use Sasha's broken body to complete it. She attacks Sasha who turns it into a Bank Statement! Sasha says that the bad news was for Charlotte. At Clash of Champions the WWE Raw Women's Championship comes back to The Boss! She's back!!
MATCH: Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens
RESULTS: Kevin Owens wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Doesn't matter how many times you see these two go one on one, it is always so good. This is chemistry on another level. Expected KO to win, but eventually Zayn will get back in this rivalry.
PROMO (In-Ring): After the match, out comes Roman Reigns. The two have a stare down in the ring, and KO takes his title and starts to leave. Out comes Y2J to help his best friend. But wait! Here comes the GM, Mick Foley. He says that he can tell Roman wants a fight with KO. So next week he will take on KO and if he can win, it will be a triple threat match at Clash of Champions. Jericho attempts to ambush Reigns but he gets a spear instead.
