WWE RAW REPORT: TONIGHT IT IS FOR HONOR, HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FIND A DEMON KING?, BEST OF SEVEN BEGINS ON SUNDAY, A TEAM REUNITED . . . A TEAM BREAKS UP . . . IS IT THE SAME TEAM I AM TALKING ABOUT?

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-08-15 23:03:00

We begin this week's episode of Raw with a look back at last week's show when Roman Reigns decided to crash Rusev and Lana's party.  Seth Rollins talked about the man he will be facing at SummerSlam and Finn Balor explained about his name and past.

We are in Corpus Christi, Texas and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton.

We see Seth Rollins outside the arena earlier today.  He says this is the feeling of inevitability.  We are six days away from him proving that he is the man.  We are six days away from the inevitable becoming reality when he becomes the first Universal Champion.  He has to deal with Finn Balor tonight, or maybe he should say The Demon King.  Seth says he will call out the Demon King now.

Seth laughs and he says it was just what he thought.  The Demon King was scared to find the man so the man will find the Demon King.

Rusev and Lana are in the ring.  Lana says that her and her husband will not leave the ring.  All of you will listen to what they have to say.

Rusev says last week Roman ruined a historical event so there will be no Raw tonight.  No matches tonight until Roman Reigns comes out and apologizes.  He tells Roman he is waiting for him.

Mick Foley's music plays and he makes his way to the ring but Rusev tells them to stop his stupid music.

Rusev responds to the fan's chants for Foley and he knows who it is.  Rusev tells Foley he is not General Manager without him and he is the greatest United States Champion ever.  Rusev demands respect and he demands it now.

Foley tells Rusev to leave now because he got all of the time he wanted.

Rusev refuses to leave.  He also says that when he told Foley he was the greatest leader of all Mankind, but he lied and says that Foley sucks.  Rusev says that Reigns has done nothing to earn his title match.  Rusev says that Foley is not the real authority so he wants Stephanie McMahon to come out since she knows what to do.

Stephanie McMahon's music plays and she makes her way to the ring but she does not seem too happy.

Rusev invites Stephanie into the ring.  He says Stephanie knows what it means to be married to a great superstar so she will understand.

Stephanie says that Rusev does not understand.  He demands respect but he refuses to give it to Mick Foley, the General Manager.

Rusev says that he is the champion of this show and he deserves respect.  He wants to know who Foley is.  Rusev says maybe he will call little Daniel and her brother Shane since they appreciate Rusev.

Roman Reigns comes out and he says if an apology will end this, then he is sorry.  He is sorry Rusev found that website where he met his wife.  Rusev says that when they bump uglies, they will have the ugliest Sasquatch Babies. 

Rusev calls Roman a pig and then he tells Roman to do that lip thing since you are so cool.

Roman says they are scheduled to fight at SummerSlam, but he does not want to wait so why not do it right now.

Stephanie says the Title Match is going to happen at SummerSlam.

Rusev says this is more than a SummerSlam title match, this is about his wife's honor.

Mick says that at SummerSlam, it is about the title.  He understands about defending his wife's honor so tonight, Rusev will face Roman Reigns over Lana's honor.

We are back and Byron Saxton asks Sheamus about Cesaro.  Sheamus says it is obvious he proved his is the more dominant superstar than Cesaro.  When he kicked his head off last week, he proved he is better than Cesaro.  He is moving on to greener pastures and Sami Zayn.  Sami makes comments on social media.  Sami is nothing to him.  He is just a cheap knock off of the Celtic Warrior.  When he stands in the ring with him, he will do what he always does, kick his bleeding head off.

Cesaro makes his way to the announce table.

Tom Philips is in the interview area with Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho.  Tom asks them about Kevin's match against Colin Cassady.  Chris tells Ted it is not one on one.  Kevin says it is a one on one match but Chris says he has Kevin's back.  Kevin says him and Chris are closer in a week than Colin and Enzo.  He tells Brian that Enzo is not a certified G.  Kevin tells Robert that Colin does not know how to spell.  Kevin says he knows that and English is not his first language.

Kevin asks Brian if he thinks Enzo and Cass being a cancer in the locker room is funny.  Chris tells Steven that Cass has a big problem tonight.

Kevin tells James that it means watch him beat Cass tonight and watch them humiliate them on Sunday night in their home town.

We are back and Sheamus and Cesaro are arguing with referees between them.

Match Number Two:  Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley versus Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods in a Non Title Match

Before the match starts, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson are on the TitanTron to talk about Ringpostitis.  Karl says they are doing everything in the lab to make sure their results are not tainted.  Luke says they are well endowed with the greatest technology so the ball is in their court to get an inch closer to a cure.

Kofi gets on the mic and he says that Luke and Karl have been all over the world and they are blowing up eggs in a microwave.  This is not a game.  Xavier mentions that at SummerSlam, they became the WWE World Tag Team Champions.  They will be damned if you human phalluses think they will become tag team champions.
