WWE RAW REPORT: MIXED TAG MATCH, A NEW TEAM FORMS, AN OLD TEAM ENDS, BROCK LESNAR RETURNS, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-08-01 23:03:00

We start off tonight's show with a look back at last week's Raw.

We are in Atlanta, Georgia and your announcers are Byron Saxton, Michael Cole, and Corey Graves.

Sasha Banks makes her way to the ring.

She says it is about time that Raw starts off with a Banks Statement from the WWE Women's Champion.  Last year during SummerSlam weekend, the WWE Universe went home talking about Bayley and the Boss because they stole the show.  They didn't just steal the show, they owned the show. This year won't be any different.  The reign of the Boss has just begun and she will get the W against Charlotte at SummerSlam.

Charlotte's music interrupts and the former champion makes her way to the ring.

Sasha asks Charlotte if she is mad and says Charlotte looks different.  Where is all of your gold?  Sasha says she made Charlotte tap out last week.  Sasha wants to know where Charlotte's little friend is.

Charlotte tells Sasha to get over herself.  She does not need Dana to beat her.  She does not need her dad to beat Sasha.  At SummerSlam, she will beat Sasha all by herself.  Charlotte reminds everyone she was the very best for over 300 days.  You capitalized on one mistake.  It is one thing to take home the prom king, but it takes another to put a ring on his finger.  Charlotte calls Sasha a one night stand.

Sasha points out that Charlotte is the daughter of Ric Flair and if it wasn't for a one night stand, Charlotte wouldn't even be here.

Chris Jericho interrupts with a litany of quiets.

Chris calls Sasha a disrespectful little punk.  He was minding his own business when he heard you talking to Charlotte like that.  Charlotte is royalty.  Charlotte is Ric Flair's daughter but she has outdone anything that Ric has ever done.  Who has Ric Flair ever beaten?  Chris says that he knows who Charlotte is going to beat at SummerSlam.

Chris wonders what makes her a boss.  He says that Sasha is a boss of purple haired teeny bopper idiots.  Maybe you are the boss because you are somehow related to Snoop Dogg.  Is it Puff Daddy or Vanilla Ice this week?  

Enzo Amore's music plays and he comes out and he introduces himself.

Enzo asks Sasha how is she doing.  Enzo says there are times when he likes to do things on his own.  He says that he is a G and Sasha is a boss and he says he has the hot sauce.  He says he would like to do some business with her.  He suggests a Certified G Deposit.

Sasha and Enzo go back and forth with How You Doin's.

Charlotte tells Sasha to go for it.  Charlotte says that there is one word to describe Enzo's love life.

Before Chris and Charlotte can spell, Enzo talks about haters.

Enzo says it is like passing a kidney stone listening to Jericho. 

Jericho tells the Hip Hop Hobbit one time that he better watch it.

Enzo wants to know what he should watch. 

Jericho tells Enzo . . . IT

Enzo says for him to think before he speaks is like wiping his butt before he poops.  He tells Bon Jovi this is his life and this isn't a DirecTV commercial and he does not have the power to turn back time.  If he could, he would turn back time to stop Jericho from buying that scarf.

While Jericho rambles, Mick Foley's music plays and he makes his way onto the stage.

Mick says he cares how they are doin'.  He might not be THE BOSS, but he is your boss.  Mick says him and Enzo are practically brothers.  Mick mentions that Enzo appears on his WWE Network show.  Sasha appears as well and she set the bar mighty high by defeating Charlotte.  Mick says he cannot wait to see Charlotte and The Boss in the ring again.  It is going to happen tonight.  Mick says we are going to have the first mixed tag team match of the New Era.  Chris Jericho and Charlotte will face Enzo Amore and Sasha Banks.

Mick says that match takes place right now.
