I know there was no RAW Recap last week, so here’s what happened on RAW in a nutshell.
Stone Cold Steve Austin returned to introduce The Undertaker and do a podcast with Brock Lesnar about trucks and bad decisions.
Shawn Michaels returned as well, to shut down Seth Rollins’ ego and eat pizza.
Ric Flair also returned to let the world know that Roman Reigns is his friend.
Kevin Owens continued to be awesome.
Renee Young grilled Paige and almost got beat up for it.
And The Shield reunited to face The Wyatt Family!
Now onto this week’s show.
The Authority kicked off RAW by praising Seth Rollins for beating Kane at Hell In A Cell and overcoming every obstacle The Authority has thrown his way. Triple H called Rollins a future Hall Of Famer and admitted he was proud of Seth Rollins, which made Rollins respond with a hug.
After the praise was over, The Authority announced a series of matches tonight featuring the non-Brock Lesnar winners from Hell In A Cell. The matches are Roman Reigns vs. Kofi Kingston, Cesaro vs Kevin Owens, Neville vs Alberto De Rio and Dolph Ziggler vs. Big E. The winner of those matches will go on to face each other in a Fatal-4-Way to determine the number one contender for Seth Rollins’ World Heavyweight Championship.
Rather than wait his turn, Roman Reigns came down to the ring to let The Authority know how ridiculous their praise of Seth Rollins was. This lead to Reigns competing first against Kofi Kingston of The New Day.
Before the match, Kofi Kingston and Big E. Declared Roman Reigns as “booty”, not “on fleek” and put their horns up for their fallen unicorn brethren, Xavier Woods.
Despite the declaration, and distractions…
Roman Reigns defeated Kofi Kingston.
Cesaro tried his hardest to beat Kevin Owens.
He really tried, guys.
But Kevin Owens advanced after this superkick…
And a Pop Up Powerbomb.
Alberto Del Rio and his new MexAmerica friend, Zeb Colter advanced by beating Neville.
Poor poor Neville…
In the final tournament match, Dolph Ziggler defeated his former bodyguard, Big E to advance in the Fatal 4-Way. During the match, Tyler Breeze made an appearance.
And so did the VIBreeze room.
As for the Main Event, The Fatal 4-Way stole the show. There were lots of kicks.
A trip to the Canadian version of Suplex City.
Unexpected Battlebowl style teamwork.
But ultimately, Roman Reigns won the match.
Looks like we’ll be seeing Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins in the near future.
Later in the night, Bray Wyatt came down to the ring to explain why he and The Wyatt Family abducted The Undertaker. Wyatt claimed he absorbed The Undertaker’s soul in order to be rejuvenated. Wyatt says feasting on The Undertaker’s soul will be his resurrection.
This led to The Undertaker’s brother, Demon Kane to come down to the ring and confront Bray Wyatt.
The rest of The Wyatt Family quickly came to Bray’s aid, and although Kane held his own, he was taken down and dragged away by The Wyatts.
King Barrett, #ScumbagSheamus and #RuRu defeated Bubba Ray, D-Von and Meathead Dudley. Barrett celebrated in perfect fashion.
Paige reunited with her friends Charlotte and Becky Lynch, officially reforming Team PCB. Team PCB lost to Team Bella.
After the match, Paige turned on Becky Lynch and Charlotte again, once again declaring this is his house.
And Stone Cold Steve Austin returned once again, interrupting The Miz playing WWE 2K16. The reason for Austin’s appearance? To plug WWE 2K16!
And speaking of WWE 2K16. I’m off to play that. Enjoy and see you next week!
