Airing Live On The USA Network

Welcome to the WWE Raw pre-show, and we are live on the WWE Network. Scott Stanford, Booker T, Corey Graves, and David Otunga hype what we will see tonight, which is a Championship celebration for Charlotte with Ric Flair and Dana Brooke. Also, there will be Money in the Bank qualifying matches on RAW and Thursday’s episode of SmackDown. There is a recap video of Sunday’s Extreme Rules PPV.  

Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw. Seth Rollins walks down to the ring to begin the show. The fans chanted ‘welcome back” as he made his way to the ring. Rollins said that it been 200 days that he has been gone. Rollins said he has been waiting for this moment, and he told the fans that he is back. Rollins said that he is back to get back his title that he never lost and last night he fired the first shot. Rollins said that he felt that the fans missed him. Rollins said that the fans had not always liked him. He said that when he broke up The Shield, they booed him. He said that the fans called him the weakest champion of all-time. He was upset that the fans dishonored his title reign. Rollins brought up his knee injury and how it buckled under the weight of carrying WWE. Rollins said he never read any of the fans letters and instead lite them on fire. Rollins said he didn’t need any of the fans to win the title or defend it. Rollins said that he didn’t need them to get back. He said that he has rebuilt himself, and he will take back his title by himself. This led to Roman Reigns walking down to the ring. Shane McMahon always walked down to the ring. Shane booked Reigns vs. Rollins at MITB.

-Commercial Break-

Sheamus cuts a promo about facing Sami Zayn tonight. He mocked him and vowed to beat him.

They lock up to begin the match. Zayn hit a hurricanronna that sent Sheamus to the floor. Zayn followed him out there and hit a moonsault. Sheamus hit a big clothesline…

-Commercial Break-

We’re back from break with Sheamus in control of Zayn. Sheamus missed a big boot and Zayn sent him to the floor. Zayn went for a dive, but Sheamus punched him. Zayn hit the big boot out of nowhere for the win.

Winner: Zayn.

-Commercial Break-

Apollo Crews cut a backstage promo but was attacked by Sheamus from behind.

The New Day walks down to the ring, and there is a cake in the ring. Kingston said that the cake is for the 1,200 episode of RAW. Kingston said that it was RAW’s birthday. Big E said that a WWE ring is never safe for a cake. Big E teased throwing the cake on the fans and JBL and Byron Saxton. The Social Outcasts run down and attack New Day.

      • T-Rock (#TeamHollywood)

        like in njpw, that crowd is silence out of respect but I wouldn’t compare this crowd to them

        • Barooq Kidd #POP

  • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

    KO with his Lil Jon impression ????

  • Omega’d

    2 great talents being misused by WWE, kinda typical really.

    • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

      too early to say that about KO and Styles definitely late to say about Sandow and Rhodes

  • It Begins kid

    Hopefully KO attacks Cole after this match

    • Omega’d

      One can only hope

  • Barooq Kidd #POP

    Wow!

  • Mikey Shango #DunDunDuuunnnnnn

    I remember when qualifying matches took weeks lol

  • Omega’d

    Well f*ck. WWE actually pulled off something truely shocking… a clean win when you expect someone to interfer

  • Zack

    I do like how all of these guys so far are believable winners. No one’s there just to do some ladder match high spots ala Sin Cara.

    • Barooq Kidd #POP

      Going to be a good one

  • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

    now they should let the losers of the qualifying matches go at it for the last spots

    • IM MAD JOHNSON #NewNation

      Good idea

      • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

        lol thats the only kind i got Brother ??????

        ?????

  • Lord Stevie REGAL #blublood

    Unless there is some big payoff for styles later this year (world champ), him signing for this crap…he’s an arse. Other than Owens, he is the only one that belongs anywhere near the main event right now.

    • Jakerams

      Cesaro is also good enough. Remember when Seth got injured and Cesaro was leading the poll by almost double for who they wanted to win the tournament. Over both Ambrose and Reigns.

      • Lord Stevie REGAL #blublood

        As much as I want Cesaro to be champ, as of this very moment he is not ready to be in the main event. He has to find that groove that he had in those moments you spek of first. He is still doing that. Right now, its only Aj or Owens that should get a shot.

        • Mikey Shango #DunDunDuuunnnnnn

          He’s ready

          • Lord Stevie REGAL #blublood

            If he wins I wont mind at all tbh. But for me Styles or Ownes should get it b4. Well Owens now unless Styles finds some way to get in the match.

  • Zack

    Might just see you guys for Smackdown ??

    Until then, I’m going to tell myself I won’t watch Chrisley….as I watch Chrisley ???

  • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

    Styles v Ziggler v Miz v Crews for one spot and maybe Corbin v Breeze v Goldust v Cara (or who ever) for the other spot

  • Lisa

    Kevin Owens is not a main event caliber wrestler. He’s just an overrated fat guy.
