Fallout on Raw
WWE World Heavyweight Title Picture
The show opens with a taxi pulling up to the arena and of course it is your new WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose. He throws some money at the cab and it begins to take off before quickly realizing Ambrose left his hardware. Classic Dean.
He comes to the ring and begins talking about the night he had at MITB. Reigns soon greets him and says he is happy for him and congratulates his brother.
Dean quickly lets him know that if Reigns won, he would have done the same thing to him.
Reigns says he wants his rematch, but is quickly interrupted by an irate Seth Rollins who tells him to get to the back of the line because he lost.
HERE COMES THE MONEY!
Shane McMahon makes a match between Rollins and Reigns as the main event and the winner gets the title shot.
Sami Zayn def. Kevin Owens
In the rivalry that will never end, Zayn and Owens competed in a short match to kick off the wrestling. Owens went for his finishing pop-up power bomb, but Zayn countered into a roll up for the win.
Kevin Owens attacks Zayn after the match and the fight continues through the commercial break and shortly after.
These two will fight for the rest of time and I am ok with it.
My name is Mr. John Laurinaitis. I am the former Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and former number one General Manager of all time of both Monday Night Raw and Smackdown.
Oh boy was I excited to hear that again!?!? I really do miss the People Power era.
Johnny Ace came to make his case for running Smackdown before Shane interrupted him and told him that it would never happen. He switched gears and said he can run Raw then. Again, he is shot down. Damn it.
I WANT PEOPLE POWER!
Enzo and Cass def. Vaudevillains
Prior to the match, Enzo and Shane danced around the ramp for the most entertaining 12 seconds of my life.
The realest guys in the room then took on their rival Vaudevillains making fairly quick work of them. Cass was hot tagged late in the match and destroyed everything in sight helping seal a victory.
John Cena Attacked by the Club
AJ comes out to the ring apologizing for what happened at MITB and said he had nothing to do with it. He asks his buddies Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson to come out. He asks them to apologize for interfering in the match and they do. He then says he has one more request, that they apologize to John Cena. They are not happy with that notion, but suck it up and do it anyway.
AJ then says Cena can get some revenge by taking on Karl Anderson. Cena wants AJ, but decides to accept the challenge. That lasted all of about 30 seconds before AJ and Gallows run in and ambush Cena sending a sea of boos throughout the arena.
Charlotte def. Paige to retain the Women’s Title
Im going to be honest, I fast forwarded through the entire match because I am over it. Until now…
The Boss is BACK
Yeah that’s right! Sasha Freaking Banks is back! The boss signals that she is coming for the gold and attacks Dana Brooke and destroys Charlotte with the Bank Statement. Eventually the numbers catch up, but Paige quickly jumps in evening the odds. Charlotte and Brooke retreat.
Bray Wyatt Returns
The new face of fear makes his triumphant return. He is accompanied by Braun Strowman and Erick Rowan. As he cuts a typical Bray promo, Big E’s voice is heard throughout the arena and the New Day come out.
As the New Day begin their typical promo, Xavier Woods is fixated on the Wyatt family being left speechless.
The Wyatt’s declare war on the New Day.
SHIELD Triple Threat…FINALLY!
After Reigns and Rollins ends in a double count out, Shane comes out and says the match will not end without a number one contender. Ambrose grabs a mic and says he doesn’t care. He will fight one of them or two of them, it doesn’t matter. Shane shows his gratitude that Ambrose is willing to fight no matter what and grants his wish issuing the triple threat we have all been waiting to see for Battleground. It was at that moment I ruined my couch from excitement.
Side note: In case you missed, Roman Reigns is suspended 30 days due to breaking the wellness policy so hopefully this match still happens.
