WWE RAW REPORT: A NAME YOU PROBABLY DIDN'T EXPECT, MATCHES ANNOUNCED FOR WRESTLEMANIA, DETROIT MEDICAL FACILITIES ARE GOING TO BE BUSY , AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-02-22 23:00:00

We are back and Brock Lesnar comes out with Paul Heyman and he does the Brock Bounce before coming to the stage.  

Paul introduces himself and he says this is the main event of the evening.  Paul says that sounds self aggrandizing because his client is not in his wrestling gear.  Every segment his client is in is the main event of the evening.  His client is the biggest attraction in sports entertainment or mixed martial arts because he is BROCK LESNAR.  

Last night during the main event of Fastlane, his client took both Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose to Suplex City.  Then his client locked the kimura on Roman Reigns and Roman was seconds away from taping out.  Remember the Undertaker tapped out to Brock Lesnar so Roman Reigns would tap out to Brock Lesnar.

Then, along comes Dean Ambrose and he takes a competitive Triple Threat Match and turns it into a street fight.  Dean takes his client out of the equation for the main event of Wrestlemania.  This pissed off Brock Lesnar.  Then, psycho nut job takes himself out of the equation of Wrestlemania that he does not pay attention to what happened during the match.

As soon as Dean arrived at the arena, Brock got his revenge.  Now that Brock is out of the main event of Wrestlemania, Dean Ambrose is out of Wrestlemania.  We take a look at the footage from earlier today.

There is no shield that can protect Dean Ambrose from the wrath of Brock Lesnar.  Brock not only deserves to be in the main event of Wrestlemania, but Brock IS the main event.  It is all because of Dean Ambrose.  Dean is like these parkour kids who everyone thinks is rebellious and doing all of these flips and crazy things that people think are cool.  That is until the reality of a Mack Semi goes up on the sidewalk and knocks it down.

Paul says if you think he is in a destructive mood, how destructive of a mood do you think his client is in?  His client needs a new Wrestlemania opponent.  This is fair warning to anyone in the locker room who wants to take a shot.  Go to the hospital and check on the barely breathing Dean Ambrose to see what happens when you mess with Brock Lesnar.  There will be a path of destruction through the locker room and it will spare no one.  So sayeth the Beast.  So Sayeth the Conqueror.  So sayeth the Main Event . . . Brock Lesnar.

There is a horn beeping at the back of the arena and an ambulance enters the building and drives into the arena.

Dean Ambrose, in his neck brace, is driving the ambulance and he gets out and removes his neck brace.  Dean struggles to get onto the ramp and make his way to the ring.  Dean is down in front of the ring and Brock stands over him.  Brock walks across Dean's chest.

Dean gets a mic and he screams out Brock's name.  He tells him to kiss his ass.  Dean says he is indestructible.  Dean says Brock will find out the hard way.  Dean says he wants Brock at Wrestlemania in a No Holds Barred Street Fight.

Brock returns to the ringside area and Brock gives Dean an F-5 on the floor.

Paul tells Dean that his client accepts his challenge.

We go to commercial.

Before our next match, The Dudleys make their way to the stage.  Bubba tells Jimmy and Jey that they want to be the first ones to welcome them back.  He tells them not to take things personal.  They needed to remind everyone that the Dudley Boys are not one trick ponies.  They are not a nostalgia act.  They are the most decorated tag team in the history of WWE.  What the Dudley Boys are are the nine time WWE Tag Team Champions.  Their legacy will not be defined by a piece of furniture.  It will be defined by their accomplishments.  That is why you will never see the tables again.

D-Von says speaking of one trick ponies, maybe your father, instead of buying thongs should have been teaching you about respect.

Match Number Two:  Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso versus Konnor and Viktor

Konnor and Viktor attack Jimmy and Jey from behind before the match starts.  Jimmy with punches to Viktor and he goes after Konnor.  Viktor with a Harley Race knee and then Konnor tags in and hits a splash in the corner followed by boot.  Viktor tags in and hits an elbow drop for a near fall.  Viktor with a double overhook on Jimmy.  Viktor with a forearm to the back.  Jey tags in and he knocks Konnor off the apron and then he hits a super kick followed by an uppercut and Samoan drop.

Jey wtih a running butt splash into the corner and then he hits a dragon whip on Konnor and follow with a double super kick to Konnor and a double super kick to Viktor.  Jey with a frog splash for the three count.

After the match, The Dudleys walk to the ring.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Chris Jericho makes his way to the ring.

Chris welcomes everyone to Raw.  Chris says he has a little story to tell.  He has been hearing about this guy tearing it up all around the world for years and his name was AJ Styles.  He heard that AJ was 'phenomenal'.  AJ makes his debut and Chris says he did not like him.  How could you be called phenomenal after not having a single match in the WWE.  He has had three matches with AJ and last night's match was Phenomenal.  AJ beat him last night.

Chris says he has had 24 hours to reflect on it.  He said he did not like or respect AJ Styles, but he has some things to say to him and say them to his face.

AJ's music plays and he comes to the ring.

Chris says it sounds like people like AJ and Jericho together in the ring.  Chris says last night the pressure was on AJ.  If he won last night, it could have derailed AJ's career before it began.  AJ won last night.  Chris congratulates AJ because he proved Jericho and everyone in the crowd that he belongs in the WWE.

Chris says he has what it takes to be a WWE Champion.  You proved that you are not good or great, you are phenomenal.

AJ and Chris shake hands . . . 

But the Social Outcasts make their way to the stage and they clap.  Slater says this is such a memorable moment.  Slater says they are so sorry they had to interrupt before you two hugged.  Bo says his heart is warmed to see so much love in the ring.  Slater says he was being sarcastic and Bo says he was too.  Axel mocks the hand shakes and he says that they can see through Jericho.  You are playing nice because AJ made you tap out.

Slater says that AJ is going to shake this man's hand after everything he said and did to him?  Slater says that where he comes from, they call people like AJ a coward.  Rose wants to know if they are buddies or friends but no one is buying Y2AJ.

Bo asks if they think they are a team.  Bo says this is a team.  They are a team.  Slater says they need to get out of their ring now.

AJ and Jericho look at each other and Jericho calls Slater a ginger jackass.  Chris says they weren't planning on being a team, but maybe they should be a team.  Chris asks the people if they want to see them as a team.  Chris says they are going to face the Social Outcasts right now.

Match Number Three:  Chris Jericho and AJ Styles versus Curtis Axel and Heath Slater (with Adam Rose and Bo Dallas)

Slater wtih a side head lock but Styles with a Phenomenal drop kick.  Jericho tags in and chops Slater.  Jericho with a drop kick to Slater and he tags in Styles.  Styles with a snap mare and sliding forearm.  Styles sets for the Styles Clash but Slater sends Styles to the apron.  Styles stops Rose and Dallas from the apron but Axel with a clothesline to Styles.  Slater with kicks and Axel tags in and punches Styles.  Axel with a drop kick.  Axel with a forearm followed by a jumping side kick from Slater.  Slater with a side head lock.

Styles with a Pele kick after escaping a belly-to-back suplex attempt.  Jericho and Axel tag in and Jericho with a chop.  Axel sends Jericho over the top rope and Jericho lands on the apron and hits a double sledge followed by a springboard drop kick.  Jericho with a bulldog but he misses a lionsault.  Jericho goes for the Walls of Jericho and Styles with a phenomenal forearm to Slater.  Styles with a springboard cross body onto Dallas and Rose.  Axel taps out.

Winners:  Chris Jericho and AJ Styles

We take a look at what happened at the start of Raw when Shane McMahon returned.

Triple H is in his office with Stephanie and he tells her to let it go.  Stephanie says this was supposed to be the biggest night of her life and it is interrupted by her brother.  Hunter says her brother will always be a failure.

Hunter says that the show might not have started the way he wanted, but it will end the way they wanted.  Hunter asks Stephanie if she wants to tell Roman and she says she will do it.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Roman Reigns is still on his phone.  Stephanie asks where does he think he is going.  Roman says he is checking on Dean.  Stephanie tells Roman that he has a match tonight and it is against Sheamus.  Stephanie says that Sheamus is part of a true brotherhood and where there is one member all are there.  Stephanie says that she would hate to see them take out all of their frustrations on Roman to force him out of his match at Wrestlemania due to professional jealousy.  She tells Roman to get ready and be safe out there.

Goldust freaks out R Truth in the locker room.  Goldust says he is sorry for what he did to Truth in his match against Curtis Axel and he says he made a cake.  Truth says that Goldust doesn't get it.  He follows him into bathrooms, messes up his wife's dress, and then costs him at Fastlane.

Goldust says it is a yellow cake with chocolate, just like Golden Truth.

Truth says he does not want his apologizes or his cake.  Goldust interrupts and he says he could predict what Truth has to say.

Truth walks after saying he is better than someone who would shove a cake in someone's face.  Truth comes back and says psych and slams the cake in Goldust's face and he does the Sideshow Bob noise.
