WWE RAW REPORT: THE HOUR OF CHAMPIONS, FRIENDSHIPS, PAUL HEYMAN DROPS A BOMBSHELL ABOUT ROYAL RUMBLE, SHEAMUS AND CESARO GO APA, AND SAMI ZAYN HAS ISSUES

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-11-28 23:06:00

We begin with a look at last week's main event between Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens for the Universal Title.

We are in Charlotte, North Carolina and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton.

Chris Jericho is in the ring for the Highlight Reel.

Chris says his guest needs no introduction but he will give one.  He says his guest is the longest reigning Universal Champion in history and his best friend . . . Kevin Owens.

Kevin says it is an honor to be out on the Highlight Reel two weeks in a row.  Kevin asks if it is a record and he says best friends are making history.  He says that is what they do, but not the people in the crowd.  Kevin says that none of you have made history.  Last week, they celebrated Thanksgiving.  That holiday where you get together with your families and you pretend to get along and you eat food.  You allegedly give thanks for things.

Kevin says that American Thanksgiving is a way for everyone to have a final meal before running out to attack people to save $60 on a crappy flat screen TV.  They did not do it because they are a superior breed . . . they are Canadians.  As Canadians, they had their Thanksgiving last month.  Kevin says they should ignore these silly USA chants and play along and say what they are thankful for.  Kevin says he is thankful for being your Universal Champion.  He is thankful for being the face of the premier show in WWE, Raw, otherwise known as the Kevin Owens Show.  Kevin says he is thankful for his best friend Chris Jericho.

They hug.

Chris says he is thankful that Kevin is his best friend.  He is thankful for his wicked scarf.  He is thankful for Seth Rollins.  He is thankful that Seth Rollins proved what happens when your ego and pride take over your life.  Seth proved that he is the epitome of a stupid idiot.  Seth used his opportunities to have a championship match and he blew it.

Kevin says that is 'Rollinsing'.

Chris says Kevin won fair and square even though Chris was banned from ringside.  It was not Chris Jericho wearing a Sin Cara mask.  It was Sin Cara wearing a Chris Jericho mask.  He got the mask of Jericho and he put it on man. 

Kevin says that mask was so realistic.  He says Sin Cara involvement or not, he had Seth where he wanted him.  After that power bomb on the apron, he is not medically cleared to wrestle tonight.

Roman Reigns' music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Kevin asks Roman if he can help him.

Roman says they are making everyone laugh and he can see why they are best friends.

Chris asks Roman if they are his clowns for his entertainment to make him and the stupid idiots laugh? 

Roman says that this is not a joke, but Chris' best buddy being the Universal Champion is a joke.

Kevin asks Roman if he just said that him as Universal Champion is a joke.   Kevin says the only joke he sees around here is Roman calling himself 'THE GUY'.

Roman says that is not hilarious because he is THE GUY.  He says that Kevin is just A GUY who needs a lot of help.

Kevin wants to know what kind of help he is talking about.

Roman says that is why he keeps Jericho around.  He says Kevin needs help with everything.

Kevin says he does not need Chris Jericho.

Roman wants to make sure that Kevin said he does not need Chris Jericho.  Without Chris last week, you would have lost that title.  You would have lost it many times before that.

Chris says he has had enough.  He asks Roman if he knows what happens when you insult his best friend.  He asks if you know what happens when you make fun of Kevin Owens.  Chris prepares the pen and Kevin tells Chris to shut up. 

Kevin says he's got this.  Kevin tells Roman you cannot talk to him because he is the Universal Champion.

Roman asks Kevin what is he going to do.

Kevin suggests he take Roman to the floor and power bomb him on the apron.

Roman says he does not want to deal with Joke Owens Joke, he wants to deal with Right Owens Fight.  He suggests a match tonight and if he wins tonight, he gets a title match at Roadblock.  Roman says he needs to talk it over with the missus first.

Kevin tells Roman if he wants a fight, he's got it tonight.  You just booked yourself on the Kevin Owens Show.

Roman says by the end of the episode, he is going to kick Kevin's ass.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Kevin Owens is talking about how Roman does not believe he is a real champion.

Chris wants to know why Kevin told him to shut up.  He says that Kevin said he does not need him.  Every time you need him, he is there. 

Kevin says that Chris thinks he is helping, but he is not.  All you are doing is making people think that he cannot defend the title on his own.

Chris says he does not need him as an ally, a partner, or a best friend.

Kevin tells Chris he is going to regret this.

Mick Foley shows up and he reminds Kevin about his match and he tells Chris he does not have to duck him all week.

Chris says that you don't have to punish him or ban him because he is out of here.

We see what happened last week between Sami Zayn and Braun Strowman.

Match Number One:  R Truth (with Goldust) versus Braun Strowman

Truth with punches and he kicks Strowman.  Strowman with a clothesline and Irish whip.  Strowman with a splash into the corner and he picks up Truth for the running power slam and the three count.

Winner:  Braun Strowman

After the match, Goldust attacks Strowman and Strowman with a splash and bear hug.

Sami Zayn comes out and goes after Strowman.  Strowman sends Zayn into the corner and Zayn with a boot.  Strowman with a punch to the chest and a Dominator.

Strowman puts Zayn in the tree of woe.  

Officials make their way into the ring to stop Strowman and Mick Foley makes his way to the ring.  

We go to commercial.

We are back and Mick Foley and Sami Zayn are talking.  Sami says he does not need this.

Byron Saxton asks Mick Foley about doing this the last two weeks.

Mick says it is a massacre when Braun is in the ring.  Sami will not quit.  There are some people who need to be saved from themselves.

Sami says he does not need to be saved from himself, he needs to be saved from Mick Foley.  Sami says that Mick has forgotten who he is and where he is from.

Mick says he made the match and Stephanie does not like you.  You said you would win the title, but you lost.  Stephanie wanted you fired and Mick made the match.  You cannot win.  Braun is not a competitor or an entertainer or a wrestler, Braun is a monster.

Sami asks Mick how many times did they tell him he couldn't do it.  You are a hero to many, but you are not a hero now.  You are a man who is standing in his way.  He is taking away opportunities from Sami.  Sami calls Mick a hypocrite.

Charlotte is in the locker room listening to something and Dana stops by.  Charlotte yells at Dana for interrupting her.  Dana says she is here for the latest update on Charlotte's celebration.

Charlotte says tonight is important because she cements her place as the greatest women's champion of all time.  She makes the people of Charlotte proud to be in her shadow.  Tonight, she ends the feud with Sasha Banks.  She will be the first to get out of this city.

We go to commercial.

Match Number Two:  Cedric Alexander versus Tony Nese (with Drew Gulak)

They lock up and Nese with a waist lock and Cedric with a wrist lock.  Nese with a reversal and Cedric with a reversal and arm drag.  Nese catches Cedric on a leap frog attempt but Alexander counters into a sunset flip.  Alexander with a head scissors followed by a drop kick.

We see Alicia Fox looking on the monitor in perfect WWE viewing angle.

Back to the ring and Gulak distracts Alexander and Nese trips Alexander and hits a double jump moonsault for a near fall.  Nese with a back elbow.  Nese with crossfaces and a body scissors.  Nese adds a reverse chin lock.  Alexander with an arm drag and elbow but Nese with an elbow.  Alexander with clotheslines followed by a handspring round kick.  Alexander is sent to the apron but he hits an enzuigiri.  Gulak gets on the apron and Alexander with a springboard clothesline to Gulak to knock him off the apron.  Nese with a pump handle power bomb for the three count.

Winner:  Tony Nese

It is time for Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady to hype WWE merchandise.

We go to commercial.

We take a look at the trouble in paradise for Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho.

Chris Jericho is leaving the building and he is asked about whether tonight's argument is serious.

Chris says this is very personal to him and it is very serious.  Chris says that he knows she wants to be a serious reporter.  You can count your friends in this business on one hand and he thought Kevin Owens was his friend.  Chris says he guesses he was wrong.  Chris yells at the interviewer and he continues to leave the building.

Chris tells his driver to open the door and the List of Jericho is dropped when the door opens.  Chris calls him a stupid idiot and someone asks Chris if the driver is being put on the list.

Chris looks up and sees Seth Rollins who attacks Jericho in the parking lot. 

Seth grabs a guardrail and he throws it at Jericho but he misses and it hits a car instead.  

Seth pulls Jericho out of the car and he sends him into another car.  Jericho avoids a pedigree on the parking lot but Rollins hits one on top of the car.

We go to commercial.
