We're in Raleigh, North Carolina at the PNC Arena for tonight's Raw. We open with highlights of Big E's cash in last week.
THE NEW DAY ARE KICKING OFF THE SHOW!!! Big E has a mic and the crowd chants "You deserve it". Big E tells the crowd they're the best. Big E says today isn't November 25th but he's here to give thanks. Thanks to all who have chanted "New Day Rocks" and those who even chanted "New Day Sucks". He thanks those who supported him grabbing the Money in the Bank contract and everyone who lost their minds when he became WWE Champion. Big E thanks us all and his special friend up above. "Brodie" chant. Now, it's time to talk about the Usos and the Head of the Table, Roman Reigns. Big E says Raw is their show and they'll send the Bloodline packing. WHY?! BECAUSE........NEW DAY ROCKS!!! CUE THE BLOODLINE!!! Reigns is sporting a red glove. Nice touch. Reigns and Big E both hold up their titles. The six man tag is next!!!
The Bloodline defeats The New Day in a six man tag team match via pin @ 12:59. This was good stuff and a great way to get the show started. Mid match, Big E and Reigns both get hot tags and have a stare down. Big E would get the upper hand in that exchange with a series of belly to belly suplexes. Towards the end of the match, Reigns and Woods were the legal competitors when BOBBY LASHLEY came to ringside and speared Big E and took out Kofi and the Usos. Not sure how that wasn't a DQ. Anyways, REIGNS WOULD FINISH WOODS WITH A SPEAR. Post match, LASHLEY SPEARED REIGNS IN THE RING AND SPEARED BIG E THROUGH THE BARRICADE ON THE OUTSIDE!!! Lashley leaves as everyone is laid out.
Backstage, Lashley is pacing and goes into Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville's locker room. Lashley says he isn't done with Big E. Lashley complains he was cashed in on when he was hurt. Lashley claims he can beat both Big E and Reigns any day. Lashley says the Almighty era isn't over. Pearce and Deville just look at each other but say nothing.
Commentary says MVP suffered a broken rib at the hands of Randy Orton last week and is out indefinitely.
Speaking of Orton, he's listening to head phones when Riddle comes in. Riddle talks about the draft and not knowing where they could end up. Riddle says Orton has a match against AJ Styles tonight. Riddle tries to give Orton a pep talk since he lost to Lashley last week. Orton acknowledges that the head phones are pretty sweet. Riddle puts his head phones on and sings Orton's theme.
Highlights of the Eva Marie/Doudrop saga. They have another match next!
Tickets for Survivor Series go on sale this Friday!
Doudrop defeated Eva Marie via pin @ 1:19. Eva gets a mic before the match and says she's not one to shame someone but look at her and look at Doudrop. Eva says girls like Doudrop can never beat women like Eva. Eva spent most of the match running away. Once Doudrop caught her, she finished her with the crossbody splash for a squash.
Pearce and Deville are backstage when Big E comes in. Big E wants Lashley and Reigns tonight, "Make it happen".
After a commercial break, Paul Heyman is now in Pearce and Deville's office. Heyman complains about Lashley and Big E bitching and complaining. Pearce and Deville cut him off and announce a triple threat for tonight! They tell Heyman to tell Reigns. Heyman smiles and says he'll do just that and walks off.
Randy Orton w/ Riddle (WWE Raw Tag Team Champions) defeated AJ Styles w/ Omos via pin @ 14:58. Midway through the match, Omos would get ejected for tripping Orton. Omos would flatten Riddle with an uppercut before he left. In a cool moment at the end, Styles went for the Phenomenal Forearm at the end but stopped when he realized Orton was ready to counter to a RKO. They both "caught" each other. Orton would hit the RKO moments later after a hanging DDT to get the win. Orton and Riddle celebrate post match. Great stuff here and best match of the night so far!!!
Highlights of Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler's troubles.
Shayna Baszler defeated Nia Jax via submission @ 2:20. Nia over powered Shayna in the beginning but it was short lived. Baszler put Jax to sleep to win. Post match, Baszler attacks Jax on the outside of the ring. Baszler put Jax's arm in the steps and stomped it! Nia cried pleading Shayna to stop but Shayna stomped her arm again! Referees and officials came to ringside to check on Nia.
Humberto Carrillo & Angel Garza defeated Mansoor & Mustafa Ali via pin @ 2:52. So, suddenly Garza and Carrillo are partners because they're family. I'm surprised by the result. Per usual with Raw, follow up is key.
Karrion Kross vignette. Pretty much said the same thing as last week. His plan is to just whoop people.
Nikki A.S.H. and Rhea Ripley come out for their match. They cut a pre-match promo to put over Connor's Cure. They dedicate their match to all kids with pediatric cancer and everyone who supported Connor's Cure. How can they lose now?
Rhea Ripley & Nikki A.S.H. defeated Natalya & Tamina via pin @ 2:32 to win the WWE Women's Tag Team Championships. Natalya was setting up Nikki for a Sharpshooter but was distracted by Ripley hitting Tamina with Riptide on the outside. Nikki would cradle Natalya for the win to become new champs! Not a good match at all but got us the title switch.
Highlights of Alexa Bliss giving Charly to Charlotte Flair as a gift. Alexa's Playground is next!
Alexa Bliss is in the ring swinging on a swing. Bliss welcomes us to the playground and introduces Charlotte Flair as someone near and dear to her heart but the soon to be former champ. Charlotte's make up tonight is something. That's all I'll say about it. Bliss tells her to sit on the rocking horse but Charlotte turns that down. Charlotte remembers when Bliss was actually a competitor. Bliss calls Charlotte the fun police. Bliss says she notices that Charlotte didn't bring Charly. "We want Charly" chant. Bliss pulls out a Charly doll and "Charly" chants take over the arena. Charlotte says Bliss is embarrassing herself. Charlotte wants the old Alexa Bliss back. The five feet of fury and former champion. Charlotte won't be fooled. Charlotte says this is pathetic and shows how delicate Bliss is. Charlotte says Bliss hides behind all of this because she's broken. Charlotte asks Bliss how it feels to be less popular than a doll. Charlotte says Bliss has only been a champion because she was on the opposite show as Charlotte. Charlotte doesn't like that she's gone from main eventing WrestleMania to playing with dolls. Charlotte runs down Bliss some more and vows to beat the sense back into her. Charlotte says she can do it tonight or Sunday. Bliss makes fun of Charlotte of saying the same thing over and over. Bliss says Charlotte has won more titles than anyone but also lost more than anyone. Bliss asks Charlotte what she would be without a title......NOTHING! Bliss says she doesn't need to play mind games to show Charlotte's insecurities when they're all over her face. Bliss says Charlotte wouldn't know what to say if she wasn't champion. Bliss tells her not to say "Woooo" because that's not hers. Charlotte says nothing about Bliss' gimmick is hers! Ouch! Bliss says she debuted Charly because she pities Charlotte and calls Charlotte a narcissistic bitch. Bliss says she doesn't need to grasp at titles to make a name for herself. Bliss vows to be champ at Extreme Rules. Charlotte says Bliss won't find out who Charlotte is without the title because she'll never beat her. BRAWL BREAKS OUT! CHARLOTTE RIPS THE HEAD OFF THE CHARLY DOLL. She goes after the Lily doll but Bliss fights back and spikes Charlotte with a DDT.
Backstage, Drake Maverick has drawn up a plan called PLAN 24/7. He talks it over with Truth, Tozawa, and Gulak. It's a plan to beat Reggie. They try to execute the plan and it fails. Maverick is disappointed in them.
Commentary wants us to vote for The Miz on Dancing With The Stars.
Jeff Hardy defeated Sheamus via pin @ 9:03. WWE United States Champion Damian Priest was on commentary for this. In the closing moments, Hardy would try a Swanton Bomb but Sheamus got his knees up. Hardy would then counter Sheamus and win with a sunset flip. The WWE United States Championship match at Extreme Rules will now be a triple threat match between the three men. Post match, Sheamus got in the face of Priest at ringside which led to a brawl.
The triple threat main event is next!
WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns w/ Paul Heyman defeated WWE Champion Big E & Bobby Lashley via pin @ 20:11 in a non-title triple threat match. Big E controlled the early going as he splashed Lashley on the apron outside. Reigns would take control by hitting Big E with a drive by (that took us to a commercial). Reigns was in control until he tried a drive by on Lashley and Lashley swatted him. Lashley would take control of the match. At one point, Reigns went for a superplex on Lashley but Big E pulled them both down to the mat to regain control as we went to another break. Big E builds momentum with belly to belly suplexes on Reigns but Lashley pulls Big E out and sends him into the barricade. Lashley would plant Reigns with a flatliner and a stalling vertical suplex. Big E would come back in and counter a Dominator. Big E splashed Reigns and Lashley simultaneously but only got a near fall. Down the stretch, BIG E HIT REIGNS WITH THE BIG ENDING but Lashley stops the pin. LASHLEY SPINE BUSTERED BIG E THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!! Lashley would go for a spear on Reigns but Reigns countered with a Superman Punch for a near fall. REIGNS WENT FOR A SPEAR BUT RAN INTO A SPEAR BY LASHLEY!! Big E breaks up the pin! Lashley tries the Hurt Lock on Big E but it's blocked. Superman Punch by Reigns. BIG E SPEARS REIGNS THROUGH THE ROPES AND HITS REIGNS WITH THE BIG ENDING!! LASHLEY WOULD THEN ATTACK BIG E WITH A CHAIR!!! MULTIPLE CHAIR SHOTS!!! REIGNS WOULD THEN SPEAR LASHLEY FOR THE WIN!!
