Live Raw on USA Network
Raw opened with Seth Rollins's music to bring out the WWE World Hvt. & U.S. champion. Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton talked about Rollins's dual title defenses at Night of Champions as Rollins made his way to the ring.
Once in the ring, Rollins told Baltimore that he is special. Like super-special, like once in a generation. Rollins said that before him it was just a pipe dream for someone to cash in MITB in the middle of the WrestleMania main event. And, before him, people thought Brock Lesnar was invincible. And, everyone was clamoring for someone to come along and knock John Cena off the top of the mountain.
Rollins hyped his statue, which led to a face-painted freak, Sting, taking his statue. "We Want Sting" chant from the crowd. Baltimore still remembers. Rollins told Sting to be careful what he wishes for because at Night of Champions, he has the opportunity of a lifetime to cement his legacy. On the flip-side, he can crush Sting's legacy.
Rollins paused to discuss some other matters. "Boring" chant interrupted. He replied that he's the champ and he can go all night long. Rollins said he has to defend his U.S. Title at Night of Champions against John Cena, who he accused of politicking his way into a title re-match. Seth said he admittedly was upset and could not find a solution to his anger, but suddenly it hit him. "Guys, I'm Seth Rollins," he cackled. He said Night of Champions will be his night because he will defeat two future WWE Hall of Famers on the same night. But, most importantly, he vowed to get the statue back.
Seth said the statue needs to be on-display so that everyone can see that he is not The Future, but The Man in WWE. Suddenly, the crow sounded and Sting appeared on the video screen. Sting said Seth's statue doesn't belong ringside or in an office, but right here with him. Sting revealed that he had possession of the title. He said Seth is The Man ... without a statue. Sting said he's here, the statue is here, and he's taking good care of it. Sting cut out, leaving Seth to seethe in the ring.
Suddenly, Sheamus's music played. Out came Mr. MITB holding his briefcase. Sheamus said Seth looks a little agitated right now. Pause for a "You Look Stupid" chant. Sheamus asked Seth if he's worried about things at Night of Champions. Seth cut him off, saying he's not worried about Sting, Cena, or Sheamus. They exchanged barbs about Seth sounding stupid worrying about a statue and Sheamus looking stupid. "I do not look stupid!" Sheamus shouted. Seth said he looks pretty stupid as Ronald McDonald. Sheamus went for a comedy line about not talking about his family.
Seth asked Sheamus what his point is. Sheamus said his point is the MITB briefcase. He said he could make his point at Raw, Smackdown, or Night of Champions. He vowed to make Seth have a third match at Night of Champions if he's still WWE champion. Cole called it a "friendly reminder" from Sheamus.
[Q2] Announcers: Cole hyped the Ziggler/Lana-Rusev/Summer Rae business "taking the gossip websites by storm." Huh? Cole said they'll dive into it later tonight.
Up Next: Paige faces Sasha Banks in a re-match from last week's Beat the Clock match.
Movie plug: Dean Ambrose in "12 Rounds" this Friday.
[Commercial Break at 8:16]
Back on Raw, there was a "Let's Go Cena / Cena Sucks" chant in the arena. This was background noise for an apparently pre-taped backstage segment with Stephanie McMahon and Seth Rollins. Seth ranted and raved about needing a plan with Hunter's help. So, is he around? Hunter snuck in and asked Seth if he thinks Steph can't come up with a plan. Seth said no no no no, you misunderstood. Hunter told Seth not to worry about Sheamus because Sheamus will face Randy Orton tonight.
And, Seth needs to prepare for Night of Champions by wrestling twice tonight. So, the first match is Champion vs. Champion with Rollins against IC champion Ryback. Hunter then booked Seth in a tag match with WWE tag champs New Day against the Prime Time Players and John Cena. Seth looked to Steph for help. Steph said she was going to have Seth go look for Sting and his statue, but Seth is right that Hunter has a good plan. Seth tried to muster some confidence and shout that he is The Man.
In-ring: Paige was introduced to the ring with #1 contender Charlotte and Becky Lynch for the opening match. Sasha Banks was out next with Tamina and Naomi. The announcers framed this as trying to resolve the match issue from last week, which ended without a winner when the Beat the Clock ran out.
1 -- PAIGE (w/Charlotte and Becky Lynch) vs. SASHA BANKS (w/Naomi and Tamina)
Paige quickly chased down Sasha and went on the offensive. Sasha was playing an under-sized, Miz-like heel early on. Sasha then asserted herself like The Boss with power offense after catching Paige in the corner. Raw cut to break at 1:30.
[Commercial Break at 8:26]
[Q3] Back from break, Sasha was still working over Paige. Becky tried to fire up the crowd to get a comeback going, then Paige fought back and put Sasha in the PTO. But, Sasha broke free and bailed to the outside. Paige wiped out B.A.D. on the outside, then the match resumed in the ring. Paige set up for another submission, but Naomi slipped into the ring, distracting the ref. Sasha then small-packaged Paige for a quick three count.
WINNER: Sasha at 9:58.
Up Next: Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns in action.
[Commercial Break at 8:36]
Back from break, The Shield's music played. Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose came through the crowd together, old-school style to "show solidarity" in the face of a threat from The Wyatts. Cole posed the question of who Ambrose & Reigns will find as a tag partner at Night of Champions.
2 -- DEAN AMBROSE & ROMAN REIGNS vs. THE ASCENSION (KONNOR & VIKTOR)
Solid squash formula. Early offense from The Ascension, signature offense from Dean and Reigns, Doomsday Device, and Dirty Deeds to Viktor for the win.
WINNERS: Ambrose & Reigns at 2:50.
Post-match, the Wyatt theme interrupted. Braun Strowman spoke into the camera that it's okay to be afraid of him. Bray Wyatt then issued a warning to Reigns, Ambrose, and a third person who joins their cause. Bray said the apocalypse awaits at Night of Champions. "Run," Luke Harper said, sending Raw to break.
[Q4] [Commercial Break at 8:45]
Backstage: Renee Young brought in IC champion Ryback for an interview. Ryback talked about his goal of being a fighting champion, unlike Seth Rollins. Ryback said Seth is a true thoroughbred in the prime of his career, but the big guy has some plans of his own tonight. And it goes like this. "Feed Me More," he led the crowd. Ryback demonstrated the Meathook Clothesline and Shell-Shock on the air. Suddenly, Kevin Owens walked into the shot eating a piece of fruit. Owens wished Ryback good luck, then noted that Ryback looks a little hungry. He told him not to bite off more than he can chew. "Big guy," Owens sarcastically said before going Carlito on the apple.
Announcers: Cole and Co. reset to discuss the Ziggler/Lana-Rusev/Summer Rae business. Cole was produced to hype it like WWE was most proud of this storyline. Cole fed to a dramatic E! "news story" playing up the storyline.
Still to come: Summer Rae wants to talk to Rusev.
In-ring: IC champion Ryback was introduced to the ring for the top-of-the-hour match. Ryback posed in the ring heading to break.
Total Divas plug: Eva Marie tries to get a rub from "The Rock" Dwayne Johnson.
[Commercial Break at 8:54]
Network plug: "Stone Cold" Steve Austin hosts a live podcast with Edge & Christian on the Network after Raw.
Seth Rollins was in the ring back from break. Brief intro for "The Man" who has to wrestle twice tonight. Before the bell sounded, Ryback handed his IC Title belt to a fan wearing a Make-A-Wish t-shirt on the second row. Ryback told him to hold onto it for the match.
3 -- WWE World Hvt. & U.S. champion SETH ROLLINS vs. IC champion RYBACK -- non-title Champion vs. Champion match
As soon as the bell sounded, Seth bailed from the ring. He returned to the ring, then bailed again, drawing boos. Meanwhile, the announcers tried to hype Night of Champions as almost guaranteeing a title change with Seth having to defend both titles against Sting and John Cena in separate matches.
[Q5 -- second hour] Rollins finally returned to the ring, where Ryback worked him over. Rollins figured out that his only strategy was to run away, which brought Ryback to the outside. Ryback prepared to slam Rollins into the ringpost, but Rollins escaped, then sent Ryback into the ring steps. The WWE Champ stood tall heading to break.
[Commercial Break at 9:05. WWE ran a local ad for Night of Champions in Houston focusing on Sting challenging for the WWE World Title for the first time.]
Back from break, Rollins was working on Ryback with a mid-ring sleeperhold. Rollins followed with a glancing blow to the face using his knee. Seth woke up the crowd teasing the Pedigree, but Ryback escaped. He then caught Rollins in the air to deliver a powerbomb for a two count. Ryback tried to follow with a top-rope splash, but Rollins moved and covered him for a two count.
Rollins then repeatedly knocked down Ryback on the outside, but Ryback refused to stay down for a count-out loss. He eventually ran back into the ring, surprising Rollins, and dropped him with a spinebuster. Meathook clothesline, then Ryback wanted Shell-Shock, but Rollins escaped and kicked Ryback in the head. Suddenly, Sting's crow noise played. From the video screen, Sting asked Seth what he's doing in the ring since they (he and the statue) are waiting. Seth tried to re-focus, then walked over to Ryback, who rolled up Seth for the pin and the win.
[Q6] Post-match, Sting popped up on the videoboard like Jim Carrey. Sting played games with the statue, then put a classic Sting mask over the statue version of Seth's face, drawing laughs from the crowd. Seth seethed and angrily stomped his feet in the ring.
WINNER: Ryback at 17:43.
Still to come: Randy Orton vs. Sheamus rubber match.
[Commercial Break at 9:18]
Somewhere in the building: Seth Rollins was shouting for Sting. He told Sting to give him his statue. Instead, WWE tag champs New Day interrupted to talk to their tag partner for tonight. Kofi Kingston, Big E., and Xavier Woods tried to give Seth a pep-talk and stop focusing on the past. Seth started to rant, then New Day freaked out and told Seth to turn around. It was Edge & Christian. Edge reminded Seth of threatening to paralyze him the last time they met. He told Seth that he didn't get the job done, though. Seth stormed off, shouting that he has a lot on his plate.
Edge & Christian then stepped up to New Day. Xavier played a tune on his trombone, which of course produced a kazoo from Christian. Christian and Edge tried to play "New ... Day Sucks," but Big E. ate the kazoo to cut off Christian. Suddenly, the Dudleys stepped in to re-unite with Edge & Christian. Bully Ray relayed news from The Authority that New Day faces the Prime Time Players for the Tag Titles next week on Raw. And, Devon said, the winner faces the Dudleys at Night of Champions. Bully had the perfect tune to capture the situation: "Get ... the Tables (clap clap), Get ... the Tables." New Day took exception and backed away from the celebratory Dudleys.
Back in the arena, Summer Rae's music played for WWE's favorite storyline to play out. Summer speaks next.
[Commercial Break at 9:27]
[Q7] Back from break, Summer Rae was standing by. Michael Cole said the ENTIRE PLANET has been captivated by this storyline. And they rolled the E! "news story" for the second time on the show.
Back in the ring, Summer said this past week has been the most horrific of my life. Pause for a "We Want Lana" chant. Summer said one man has been the victim of this whole situation, Rusev. She asked for Rusev to come down to the ring for a chat. Summer recited a poem about Rusev guiding her through troubled waters. He gave her the courage to pose for a magazine. Which is why she feels so terrible because Dolph Ziggler has been trying to seduce her for weeks. "Boring" chant, which Summer talked over. She claimed that Dolph kissed her. "Rusev, I'm sorry. I betrayed you," she cried through her over-acting.
Rusev wiped away her crocodile tears. "You be-traded me," he said. He forgave Summer. Rusev told "sweet, submissive Summer" that Dolph fed her American lies. So, she is the victim. And, Lana was also a victim. Because she was seduced by that skinny American, Dolph Ziggler. Rusev said Lana is supposedly not here because of a broken wrist, but she has a broken heart. Rusev said he would never, ever cheat on her.
Suddenly, Dolph Ziggler's music interrupted. Dolph said everyone knows Rusev is lying. He added that Lana asked him to give Rusev a message. Dolph stepped back and superkicked Rusev in the face. Rusev angrily rolled out of the ring, then left with Summer.
Backstage: Randy Orton isn't doing much of note right now, so he was shown talking to Reigns & Ambrose, teasing a potential alliance. The conversation did not make air. Orton walked off ahead of facing Sheamus.
Heading to break, WWE ran a Network video package plugging upcoming shows. Included was the official announcement of Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show on the October 3 MSG special.
[Commercial Break at 9:40]
[Q8] Back from break, Randy Orton's music played as Cole reset the show. After Orton made his entrance, Mr. MITB Sheamus was introduced to face Orton.
4 -- RANDY ORTON vs. SHEAMUS
Lock-up, then Sheamus bailed. Orton took control, so Sheamus bailed. Sheamus eventually grabbed a mic to yell at the crowd, but Orton snuck up behind Sheamus and punched him in the face. Orton tried to work on Sheamus in the ring, but Sheamus bailed again. Sheamus eventually cut off Orton and decked him on the floor. Sheamus tried to get a count-out heading to break.
[Commercial Break at 9:52]
Back from break, Sheamus was in control. Sheamus dominated Orton, who sold an injury as he slowly came to his feet. Orton suddenly fired off repeated Cesaro Uppercuts, then he tried his trademark second-rope DDT, but Sheamus blocked. Sheamus neck-snapped Orton, then climbed to the top turnbuckle. Sheamus landed a flying shoulder tackle (with the crowd expecting a mid-air RKO counter). Sheamus covered for a two count.
[Q9 -- third hour] Sheamus bounced the ropes, but ran into a powerslam from Orton. "RKO, RKO" chant from the crowd. Orton was unable to follow up, though, and Sheamus dropped Orton to the mat for a submission. Orton fought to the ropes and made it to get a break. Sheamus tried to follow up with a top-rope move, but Orton blocked and nailed a superplex for a two count.
Reset. Orton dragged Sheamus to the ropes and snapped off a second-rope DDT. Orton called for the RKO, but Sheamus blocked. Sheamus tried to hit the Brogue Kick, but Orton ducked. Sheamus then rolled up Orton for a two count, but Orton popped to his feet and surprised Sheamus with the RKO. It was good for the win.
WINNER: Orton at 15:50 to win the feud. Only to start a new one...
Post-match, the Wyatt Family video interruption played. The lights came back on and the Wyatts had Randy Orton surrounded. Luke Harper blindsided Orton, then Bray Wyatt got in blows on Orton. Luke rolled Orton into the ring, where Braun Strowman was standing by. Strowman rag-dolled Orton, shaking the life from him. More attacks on Orton. Apparently Ambrose and Reigns left the building and were unavailable to help? Poor Orton caught on-camera having a pre-match chat and this is what he gets. Bray posed over Orton as Raw cut to break.
[Commercial Break at 10:07]
Announcers: Cole, Saxton, and JBL reacted to the Wyatts attacking Randy Orton. JBL said no one is going to agree to be Ambrose and Reigns's partner at Night of Champions.
Suddenly, fireworks shot off and the Dudleys were introduced for the next match. As the Dudleys came to the ring, Cole hyped next week's line-up from Memphis for the marketed "season premiere." Los Matadores were introduced as the Dudleys's opponents.
5 -- THE DUDLEYS (BUBBA RAY & DEVON) vs. LOS MATADORES (DIEGO & FERNANDO w/El Torito)
Los Matadores had a communication issue, then El Torito suddenly hopped on the ring apron and raised his leg as if he were peeing on the top rope. Un Matador slapped Torito, drawing ooohs and aahs. He then turned around and took the 3D from the Dudleys.
[Q10] Post-match, the focus shifted from the Dudleys to Los Matadores having issues. Un Matador pump-kicked El Torito out of the ring as the crowd chanted for tables. El Matador roughed up Torito, bullying him on the outside. Devon then pulled El Matador into the ring, where a table was set up. Bully delivered a top-rope powerbomb through a table to put an exclamation point on the win.
WINNERS: Dudleys at 1:37.
Still to come: Seth & New Day vs. Cena & PTPers in the main event.
[Commercial Break at 10:18]
Announcement: Dolph Ziggler (without Lana) vs. Ruev (with Summer Rae) is set for Night of Champions.
In-ring: Cesaro's music played to bring out The Miz's opponent for singles action.
6 -- CESARO vs. THE MIZ
Miz ducked in the corner as soon as the bell sounded since he had not removed his sunglasses yet. Cesaro patiently waited, then manhandled Miz like a small child. Cesaro roughed up Miz with uppercuts, and then some more on the outside. Back in the ring, Miz targeted Cesaro's mid-section to go after Cesaro's injured ribs. (No tape, though, to create the visible target.)
Miz dropkicked Cesaro out of the ring, then shoved him into the guardrail ribs-first. Cesaro sold on the floor, then Big Show slowly walked out. Show chased Miz around ringside, but Miz ran away from Show, using the ring as a shield. The ref eventually hit a 10-count and the bell sounded, counting out both men. Miz didn't care, as he was glad to have out-quicked Show. JBL said Miz lost by count-out, but Cesaro did not make it back into the ring, either. In any event, a frustrated Show walked over to Cesaro and KO Punched him. Show stomped up the ramp to the back.
WINNER: Double count-out at 4:10.
Countdown Clock: Nikki Bella is seven days away from becoming the longest-reigning Divas champion. She talks next.
[Q11] [Commercial Break at 10:30]
This Wednesday: NXT features Finn Balor & Samoa Joe vs. Lucha Dragons in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Classic.
Back in the arena, Nikki Bellas's music played to bring out Divas champion Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, and Alicia Fox. Cole noted that Nikki is one week away from tying A.J. Lee for longest-reigning Divas champion. Once in the ring, Alicia and Brie dramatically introduced Nikki, who mainly drew boos. Nikki asked the crowd if they can feel the excitement in the air.
Nikki pointed to the Bellatron's countdown clock, then invited everyone to their celebration next Monday. She vowed to throw the wildest party of all-time next week. Nikki said they will be in full Brie Mode. Suddenly, Charlotte's music interrupted. Charlotte, Paige, and Becky Lynch marched down to the ring with something to say about this.
Charlotte said everyone knows she loves a party, but they were not invited. So, instead, she went to The Authority and they granted her request for a Divas Title match next week on Raw. Charlotte said she's going to break Nikki's lame clock, prevent her from getting the record, and win the Divas Title. A fight was on. Nikki tried to run away, but Paige threw her into the ring to take a spear from Charlotte. Charlotte then slapped on the figure-eight mid-ring. Nikki tapped furiously, then slipped out of the ring and sold a leg injury.
Up Next: The six-man tag main event.
[Commercial Break at 10:41]
[Q12] In-ring: John Cena was introduced first for the main event. Cena jumped out on-stage and listened to the crowd mixing cheers and "John Cena Suuuuucks" sing-song. Cena told everyone to keep bringing it. He then stormed the ring as WWE plugged Rollins vs. Cena for the U.S. Title at Night of Champions in Houston. The Prime Time Players were out next as Cena's tag partners.
New Day interrupted the Millions of Dollars Dance to bring out the WWE tag champions. Seth Rollins was out next for his third appearance of the show. Rollins slowly walked down to the ring selling a leg injury by limping. He walked so slowly that a random dude walked up next to Seth from the backstage area. Apparently he was a fan or a weird plant crashing Raw, as security jumped on the scene in the background. The dude casually walked around ringside until he was removed from the scene.
7 -- WWE World & Hvt. champion SETH ROLLINS & WWE tag champions NEW DAY (KOFI KINGSTON & BIG E. w/Xavier Woods) vs. JOHN CENA & PRIME TIME PLAYERS (TITUS O'NEIL & DARREN YOUNG) -- six-man tag match
Xavier tried to engage the crowd by playing the trombone at ringside. Big E. then celebrated a take down on Cena. Very slow start to the match taking their time trying to get the match to the over-run. Meanwhile, JBL reminded viewers that there's a college football game on ESPN right now. Xavier continued to work the trombone into the match as New Day worked over Cena heading to break.
[Commercial Break at 10:53]
Back from break, Xavier was still talking ringside. Meanwhile, New Day was still working over Cena, who escaped an SOS from Kofi Kingston. Rollins tagged back in and stomped away on Cena as D-Young and Titus stood on the ring apron waiting to get a tag.
[Q13 -- over-run] New Day continued to work over Cena heading to the top of the hour. Big E. went for a super splash off the ropes, but Cena moved and finally made a tag. The tag was made to Titus, who cleaned house. Titus got himself and the crowd hyped, then landed a big corner splash. Titus and Big E. eventually knocked themselves out, then Cena and Rollins took tags.
Teased AA, teased Pedigree, and Cena applied the STF. Rollins made it to the corner to tag in Kofi, who tried a cross-body, but he landed in Cena's arms for the powerlift AA. Cena covered Kofi for the pin and the win. Titus and D-Young hit the ring to celebrate with Cena and stand tall for the crowd.
WINNERS: Team Cena at 12:30.
Post-match, Titus and D-Young brought in Cena to do the Millions of Dollars Dance. Cena botched the dance move as Seth seethed down at ringside. The babyfaces then left the ring and Seth slowly rolled back into the ring. Suddenly, Sting's Crow noise played. "Wow, rough night, huh, Seth?" Sting mockingly said. Sting said he never did get this statue. He then asked for the lights. A waste truck was standing by. Sting asked the garbageman to start his engines, then he teased pushing the statue into the trash. Sting tipped it over, the cruncher was lowered, and the statue was crushed. Sting grabbed a handle and rode the trash mobile as it drove away from the building. The crowd howled, Seth threw a fit in the ring, and Cole signed off.
But, first, WWE cut to ringside for the announcers to react to what just happened. Seth then stomped out of the ring and grabbed his title belts as the crowd sang at him "na na, good-bye." Seth stood on top of the announce table with both title belts, then WWE cut backstage to show Steve Austin sitting down with Edge & Christian for his next live podcast interview on WWE Network, next.
[ OVERALL REAX: This definitely felt like a maintenance, holiday edition of Raw just trying to get to next week's show and Night of Champions. ]
