We open up Monday Night Raw with a recap of the "Eye for an Eye" storyline between Seth Rollins and Rey Mysterio. They show clips from the match last night and boy was it not a pretty sight.
Raw's theme music hits and now we get the traditional opening.
We get the Monday Night Messiah, Seth Rollins, coming out to the ring to open the show. He is accompanied by Murphy and slowly makes his way to the ring. Murphy hands Seth a mic and he is drowned by a chorus of boos… He claims he will never forget what happened last night because of that visual. He claims that he did this because of what the WWE Universe have made him become. He says we can't dwell in the past and need to move forward because Rey Mysterio is out of sight and Raw is free to fulfill its potential… until Aleister Black's music hits. Black says all of this is on Rollins' hands and no one else's.
We come back from commercial break the match having already started and Rollins is in control. Murphy is back in Rollins corner after getting destroyed by Black. Seth yells at the ref saying you listen to me and his lack of concentration allows Black to get back into the match. Rollins is focusing on Blacks arm after Black slammed it into the ring post on the outside after trying to hit Rollins. Rollins goes for a pin and gets a 2 count and then goes right for the injured arm. Black is fighting through the pain on his injured arm and goes for a moonsault and misses… Seth tries for a stomp, Black moves and hits Rollins with the Black Mass!!! As he goes to pin Rollins Murphy gets involved and takes a Black Mass himself but this allows Seth to roll out of the ring. As we come back from the break, Black is hitting Rollins with some heavy kicks and tries for the Black Mass again and misses. Seth turns around and hits him with a superkick, which leads to Seth heading to the top rope. Black intercepts him and they are fighting on the top rope until Seth grabs Black's right arm and drops it across the top rope. This leads to Seth getting back into the middle of the ring, drags Black to the mat and his him with The Stomp. He crawls over onto of Black and gets the 1, 2, 3 for the victory.
What a barnburner of a match to start the show. Was I disappointed with the result, yes, but it kind of made Black look strong in the loss. Overall rating: 4 stars
After the match, Seth sends Murphy into the ring and starts to beat on Black. Seth joins him and they are making an example of Black tonight. Seth keeps focusing on the arm and keeps saying it's not enough. Seth says who is here to save you.. I'll tell you… Your Messiah!
MVP is in the back with Lashley and Ron Simmons… Truth shows up holding a frying pan and MVP is inviting the 24/7 champ to the ring and Lashley says he wasn't talking to you, he was talking to the new 24/7 champ. He moves out of the way, and a ref is standing there. Next thing you know Shelton Benjamin kicks R-Truth, pins him, and becomes the new 24/7 champions.
As we come back from the break, MVP's music hits and out comes Shelton Benjamin, Lashley, and MVP. MVP comes out and claims to be the New US Champion after last night. Out comes Ricochet and Cedric Alexander and they come out spewing facts saying that he belongs back in the past. Ricochet and Alexander say they have a tag team partner for tonight and out comes a returning Mustafa Ali!!! He hasn't been seen in months and we get right to the action. Lashley comes out, eats super kicks from all 3 and then they get into the ring and control it by knocking both MVP and Benjamin out of it. We come back and the bell is rung with Lashley and Ricochet starting the match. We get some great back and forth action but we currently have MVP keeping Alexander away from his corner preventing him from tagging out. MVP goes for the cover and gets a 2 count, then tags Benjamin back in and keeps the attack on Alexander. Benjamin tags in Lashley and they keep the dominance over Alexander in the match. MVP does the ballin' elbow but Alexander is able to still kick out and doesn't want to give up. Alexander is trying to fight off MVP gets some momentum but then eats a boot to the mouth and its done. MVP tags in Benjamin but Ricochet is able to get a tag and they get some offense in on Benjamin and Ali comes in. Benjamin is now giving it to Ricochet after giving him a knee strike to send him to the outside. After getting the beat down for the last few minutes Ricochet tags in Ali for the Hot Tag and is taking it to MVP and goes for the pin and gets a 2 count. Mustafa Ali dives over the top rope and takes out Lashley, Benjamin takes out Alexander, then RIcochet takes out Benjamin. This leaves the two legal men in the ring of Ali and MVP… Ali turns on the offense then hits the 450 splash and covers MVP for the win!. What a return for Ali!
Well that was a surprise… That match was fun and had both hard hitting as well as some high flying spots. I'm happy with this result and the overall rating that I give the match is 3.75 stars.
We head backstage to Orton cutting a promo about the moments that changed his life and his history. He is referring to the moment when he swung the steel chair on Edge's neck 175 days ago. He always thought his friendships were etched in stone but he now realizes that it is not the case. Orton loves the feeling of standing over both Edge and Christian knowing that he is the one that has ended both of their careers and he will enjoy standing over Big Show tonight after he punt kicks him as well.
We come back to the Viking Raiders in the back talking to Ron Simmons… he must be making the rounds tonight lol.
Now we get a nice video package on the Big Show showing what he is capable of. Chrisitan is joining the show via satellite and goes over the fact that Orton used Flair as a weapon in order to beat him. He claims that he might not ever be the same after that match.
We head to the back to Sarah who is interviewing Bianca Bel Air and she says that her rise in this division is going to be the fastest. Peyton interrupts and tells Bianca she is the dumbest to get involved in this rivalry.
Looks like we are going to have Peyton Royce taking on Ruby Riott again tonight. We have some good back and forth action with Peyton getting most of the offense in. Ruby is creating some separation and slides into the ring to get the roll up but Peyton blocks it. Peyton climbs to the top, Ruby avoids it and hits the Riott Kick on Peyton and gets the victory!. This is her first singles victory in over a year and a half.
Nice quick match with some offense by both ladies. Overall rating 3 stars
We come back to Garza and Andrade in the back with Vega talking to Charlie saying that they are going to be one step closer tonight to achieving their goal and that they are always waiting and ready. The Street Profits come in and jump both of them and we see the Profits standing tall.
As soon as the bell rings, Garza and Andrade attack the Profits and take immediate control. Garza is giving it all to Dawkins but both of them get the tag and in come Ford and Andrade. Ford does a suicide dive over the top hitting Andrade and gets back into the ring and start celebrating. Dawkins and Ford are putting on a tag team clinic right now tagging in and out keeping Andrade away from his corner until Andrade reverses it and is able to get Garza in the match. This week the Vega Boyz seem to be working well together, let's see how long it will last. Ford finally gets the tag to Dawkins and he is giving the business to both Andrade and Garza and is running all over the ring like a luchador. Dawkins goes for the pin but Garza breaks it up. Ford goes to the top rope and hits a massive Frog Splash in which he rotates 180 degrees in the air. He pins Garza for the 1, 2, 3.
What a match between these two teams. It's great to have the Profits back. Overall rating: 3.75 stars.
We come back to the Vega Boyz in the back talking and Vega comes over and starts screaming saying she needs to fix the problem again. They say they are on the same page and Vega said, prove it.
Bayley and Banks are heading out to the ring to discuss the bs that happened last night at Extreme Rules. Banks and Bayley actually think Banks is the champ, it's sad. Sasha is saying she earned this belt while Asuka was given the belt. Bayley now says that she is your role model and had to do the right thing and make the count last night. As they start celebrating out comes Asuka… Stephanie!!! She congrats Bayley and Sasha for being the tag champs and Bayley for being the SD champ. Next week there will be a championship match next week and if the "Role Model" gets involved next week, Sasha will lose.
Now we have Bayley vs Kairi and this could be Kairi's last match in WWE. Kairi is showing how great of a wrestler she is. Bayley is beating up on Kairi and has her in the corner until she drags her to the middle of the ring. Kairi reverses it into a 2 count but Bayley gets up and kicks Kairi. Bayley is focusing on Kairi's back trying to weaken it and getting a couple of near falls. As Bayley was hanging on the top rope, Kairi does a stomp from the top rope and causes Bayley to flip over. As Kairi goes for the pin Sasha comes over and pulls Bayley out of the ring. As we come back from the break the momentum has switched and Bayley is in control.
We cut to the back and Shayna is watching the match and Charlie comes over and Shanya says I have beaten everyone on this roster yet I don't have a match tonight, what do you want me to do, sit in catering? Go out and be a fan? No one deserves that spotlight more than me, so do I have a vested interest in this match? Yes, yes I do… the same way a shark in the water has a vested interest every time it sees prey.
We go back to the match and Kairi hits Bayley with a sliding move then goes to the top but Bayley intercepts and Bayley drops Kairi's right arm over the top rope. Kairi takes out the feet of Bayley and hits a double stomp on Bayley while she was just hanging there in the corner. Kairi goes for the attack in the bottom rope but Bayley moves and Kairi stops herself. She then hits Bayley with the back elbow, then hits the Insane Elbow from the top rope goes for the pin but Bayley is able to get her foot on the bottom rope before the 3 count. Bayley catches Kairi with a knee, hits a belly to back suplex, hits her own elbow drop from the top rope but Kairi kicks out at two!!! Bayley goes for the Bayley to Belly but Kairi reverse's it into a roll-up and pins Bayley for the victory!!!!
What a match between 2 of the better women's wrestlers on the roster. They were given time and there was really no interference and we got a clean finish. Well done. Overall Rating 4 stars.
Next we cut to the back to see Drew walking holding the WWE Championship over his shoulder who walks into Sarah and gets asked what condition he is in after that match last night. Says he feels like he fell down stairs but is heading to the ring to discuss the future of Drew McIntyre.
Drew gets into the ring and asks for a mic, and says he has to hand it to Dolph for the stipulation that he chose. He did everything he could to try and beat him, in fact he almost had him… but he didnt and that almost doing things is the story of Dolph's career. Drew says that SummerSlam is coming up and he wants a worthy opponent. Dolph shows up and says that he was this close and is deserving of that match and thinks he deserves another chance at the title. Drew has said no multiple times. But Dolph says that Drew gets to pick the stipulation of the match and will tell Dolph right before the bell rings. This match is happening but when.
Big show is in the back talking about the upcoming match and is talking about what Orton has done the last few weeks. He claims there is more to life than living up to your last name. Show prayed for a long time that the Legend Killer would never return but whether it was the voices in his head or Ric Flair's, it's back. He remences of the past when they called their tag team Hammer and Chisel, they bonded knowing what each other was dealing with. Show is going to do everything he can to make sure that Orton doesn't write the end of his story.
We have come to the main event of the evening, tonight we have an Unsanctioned Match between The Big Show and Randy Orton. As the bell rings Show goes right after Orton and needs to keep the pressure on. Show gives Orton a big slap across his chest and asks Orton if that hurts then drags Orton to his feet by his skull. Show hits Orton with a huge spear and Orton rolls right out of the ring, Show grabs a table from under the ring then goes and throws Orton back into the ring. Garza and Andrade come out and attack Show and put him right into the ring post. As Orton lines up to punt the Big Show the Viking Raiders come out to even the odds. We come back from a break with Orton and Show in the ring. Show is really giving it to Orton until Orton drop-kicks the legs out from Show and tries to punt him again but Show hits a chokeslam and gets a 2 count. Show was lining up for the KO punch but Orton rolled out of the ring to buy himself some time. Show is setting up a table in the ring and when he is ready he just manhandles Orton and throws him back into the ring. Show tried to put Orton through a table with a splash off the middle rope but Orton moved out of the way and Show goes through the table himself. Once Show gets up Orton hits him with an RKO but Show kicks out at 2!!! Orton grabs a chair from under the ring and hits Show across the back and it sends Show to the mat. While he is down he gives him a 2nd shot straight on the back and it really seems to have stunned Show. Show is draped over the top rope and Orton does the draping DDT off the top rope instead of the middle. Orton is lining up another RKO and hits a 2nd one and gets the pin for the victory.
While it wasn't the greatest match it definitely served its purpose. Overall rating; 3 stars
After the match is over Orton is setting up the punt kick to Show and nails the Big Show right in the side of the head and he is out. Orton gets down next to him and says I told you , I told you it would be like the others. One more legend down.
Well that's the end of the show this evening and honestly it wasn't that bad of a show. We had some great matches and a lot of movement on storylines. Overall rating 3.75/5
