So That Happened: #RAW Recap (11/23/15)

Yes. The Unthinkable has happened. #ScumbagSheamus is the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. *Sigh* Let’s just get to RAW. Maybe New Day can cheer us up.

The Authority kicks off RAW talking Roman Reigns. They mock Roman Reigns for turning down the opportunity to be part of The Authority, and blame Reigns’ pride for why he is no longer the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Stephanie McMahon says opportunity knocked twice for Roman Reigns and stands up for Triple H, claiming he was trying to be a good boss when he tried to shake Reigns’ hand.

Triple H introduces a man who knows how to seize opportunity, the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, #ScumbagSheamus.


#ScumbagSheamus comes out and thanks The Authority for the introduction and the “love” from the WWE Universe. Despite the “You Look Stupid” chants, #ScumbagSheamus says there’s nothing the WWE Universe can say to ruin his moment. #Sheamus also mocks Roman Reigns for reaching the top of the mountain, then getting Brogue Kicked off. #Sheamus continues to talk about Roman Reigns’ reaction after losing, calling him pathetic. #ScumbagSheamus talks about his plan to win the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, then asks the WWE Universe, “Who Looks Stupid Now?”

Roman Reigns interrupts #ScumbagSheamus and The Authority. Reigns congratulates #ScumbagSheamus, then demands his WWE World Heavyweight Title rematch tonight. After a “YES” chant, Stephanie McMahon interrupts and lets Roman Reigns know that he won’t be getting a rematch due to spearing Triple H at Survivor Series. Stephanie demands Reigns backs up and get the hell out of his ring.

Roman Reigns asks Triple H if he’s standing behind Stephanie because she’s afraid of him. Stephanie backs away and Triple H and Roman Reign go face to face.

Once Reigns gets closer, Triple H lets Reigns know that he will get a rematch when he says he gets one. Suddenly, Reigns is attacked by the returning Rusev.

After a Brogue Kick by #ScumbagSheamus, Triple H lets Roman Reigns know that he’ll get his rematch at WWE TLC in a few weeks, but Reigns will have to face Rusev tonight. #ScumbagSheamus will be in Rusev’s corner.

But more on that later…

In happier RAW events, it’s the New Day’s one year anniversary and they want to celebrate with a New Day First Anniversary In-Ring Country Music Jamboree! The New Day comes down to the ring with fake horses and cowboy hats.

The New Day says it’s their official one year anniversary, then addresses a very serious situation: The fact that they have to spend their one year anniversary of Nashville: The capital of country music. Kofi Kingston says The New Day is about the Power Of Positivity, but when it comes to country music, Country Music sucks.


The New Day mocks country music themes like losing their girlfriend, pick-up trucks, dogs running away and tractors. Kofi says that the Power Of Positivity is your friend (Message).
Xavier Woods says The New Day will show you what country music should be.

Paige calls Charlotte an embarrassment, just like her Father and will prove that tonight in a Divas Championship Rematch.

Later, Goldust and The Prime Time Players defeat Stardust And The Ascension.

Alberto Del Rio and Zeb Colter come out to let the WWE Universe know that the borders of MexAmerica are closed forever. Colter mentions that they tried to bring everyone over to MexAmerica instead of the United States, but instead Americans went to Twitter, Facebook, Periscope, Grindr and Tinder, and became a bunch of haters. Alberto Del Rio says the same thing in Spanish (kinda) and to hell with the WWE Universe.

Jack Swaggers interrupts Alberto Del Rio and Zeb Colter, asking Colter what he’s doing. Swagger reminds Colter that he used to stand for America, then calls him an old, bitter, out of touch idiot. Del Rio interrupts and calls Swagger a “Stupid American.”
