WWE RAW REPORT: IF YOU LIKE TAG TEAM WRESTLING THIS IS THE SHOW FOR YOU, TWO OUT OF THREE FALLS FOR THE TAG TITLES, BROCK AND JOE, THE EVIL ONE RETURNS, BAYLEY SITS DOWN WITH COREY, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2017-06-12 23:05:00

We begin tonight's show with a recap of what Samoa Joe did to Paul Heyman.

We are in Lafayette, Louisiana and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Booker T.

Brock Lesnar's music plays and he makes his way to the ring with Paul Heyman and he does the Brock Bounce and the Lesnar Leap.

Paul introduces himself and he says he is here to unleash the beast.  It is Samoa Joe's day of reckoning at the hands of the Undisputed Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.  How does this story go?  Last week on Raw, he showed Samoa Joe respect that he thought Samoa Joe deserved.  He asked for permission to enter Samoa Joe's ring.  Like a shark luring the chum into his ring, Samoa Joe took him in and took him out.

If that was a legitimate beef, he had that coming, but that was not the case.  Samoa Joe kicked down the front door of the lair of the beast.  Joe put his hands on Brock's guy.  Now, Brock Lesnar has a problem.  That problem is with Samoa Joe and it will be solved by the greatest problem solver in WWE history, Brock Lesnar.

Paul says he thought Samoa Joe was the worst case scenario.  Someone to put up a fight against Brock Lesnar and be a worthy competitor.  Someone who could go man versus beast against Samoa Joe.  How many Samoans have been in this business?  Think of all of those accomplishments.  They are all related and proud of each other's accomplishments except for one, Samoa Joe.  The one Samoan no one wants to be around.  Paul calls Joe a mutt whose greatest accomplishment is putting the Kokina Clutch on Paul Heyman.

Paul says it was like Joe said it would be.  He saw a white light and the next thing he knew was that he woke up.  Paul says what if Joe puts that choke on Brock Lesnar?  What happens to the title?  Paul says that Joe will never get that hold on Brock Lesnar because you are not man enough to apply that hold on Brock Lesnar.

Samoa Joe's music plays and he makes his way to the ring.  Paul Heyman leaves the ring.

Joe enters the ring and he gets in Brock's face.  Joe hits Lesnar and then he punches Brock.  Lesnar runs Joe into the corner and then Kurt Angle sends security and officials to the ring and we know what that means.

Security is knocked down and Joe takes Brock down.  Wrestlers come to the ring and separate Brock and Joe.

Joe with a thrust kick to Brock and then Brock goes to the floor after the scrum that is taking Joe to the back.

We go to commercial.

We are back with a Moments Ago Moment of what happened between Samoa Joe, Brock Lesnar, security, officials, and the Raw roster.

The announcers comment on what they just saw.

Elias Samson is in the ring and he has a song for all of you.

Match Number One:  Dean Ambrose versus Elias Samson

They lock up and they fight for position in the corner until Dean breaks clean.  Ambrose with a hammer lock and Elias backs him into the ropes and Elias with knees to the midsection.  Elias with an Irish whip and Dean floats over and hits a corkscrew back elbow.  Samson goes to the floor and we go to commercial.

We are back and Dean with forearms but Samson with a clothesline.  Samson kicks and punches Ambrose in the corner.  Samson with a knee to the ribs and a reverse chin lock.  Ambrose tries to escape the hold but Samson holds on.  Ambrose with elbows and a belly-to-back suplex that allows Dean to get out of the hold.  Dean with chops but Samson fires back.  Dean with forearms and a running forearm.  Dean with a flying clothesline and a fisherman's suplex for a near fall.  

Dean with a running forearm into the corner but Samson avoids the bulldog.  Samson with a boot and then he goes after Ambrose but Ambrose drops down and Samson goes over the top rope to the floor.  Ambrose with a suicide dive.  Samson punches Ambrose on the turnbuckles and sets for a superplex but Ambrose blocks it.  Dean with head butts to send Samson to the mat.  Dean is stopped by the Miz who makes his way to the ring and Samson gets a near fall with a rollup.

Dean bounces off the ropes with a clothesline.  Ambrose sees Miz and Dean goes to the floor.  Miz begs for mercy and Maryse looks at something near Dean.  Miz puts Maryse in the way and then Dean pulls Miz out of the ring when he tries to escape.  Maryse distracts Dean and then Dean gets back into the ring in time.  Samson with a leaping knee drop to the back followed by a reverse swinging neck breaker for the three count.

Winner:  Elias Samson

We go to commercial.

We are back with the latest Shattered Dreams Production from Goldust.  He tells us to keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.  R Truth claims they were brothers and friends.  The truth is you were jealous and scared.  Goldust says he got to Truth before Truth got to him.  You never understood him.  No one understood him.  Is it because he is too bizarre?  Is it because he makes you feel uncomfortable?  Ignorance can be beautiful, but just like beauty, nothing lasts forever unless you are made of gold.  You better buckle up buckeroo because you ain't seen nothing left.  The Golden Age is back.

Miz and Maryse are walking in the back and Kurt Angle wants to know what is he doing.

Miz says Ambrose is lucky because Ambrose ruined his celebration.  Miz says Maryse is still angry for what he did to the grandfather clock.

Kurt says that is not his problem.

Miz points out that Dean did what he did because Kurt was too preoccupied with his personal problems.

Kurt wants to know what Miz knows about Kurt's personal problems.

Miz wants Kurt to stop Dean Ambrose.  He suggests that Kurt fire him, suspend him, or fire and suspend him.

Kurt tells Miz never to speak to him like that.  Kurt says he will do nothing to Dean Ambrose.  Kurt tells Miz if he has a problem with Dean Ambrose, he needs to do it himself.

We take a look at Cedric Alexander.

Noam Dar is in the locker room and Cedric Alexander stops by and he says that he has moved on and is over this.  He does not know how many other ways he needs to say this.  He is done with Noam and Alicia Fox.

Alicia is on Face Time with Noam and she tells him to say anything he has to say to her face.  Noam says that Alicia is at home recovering from a neck injury.

Alicia says she is looking forward to Noam taking care of Cedric tonight.

Cedric says it is over tonight.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Noam is talking to Alicia on his phone as he makes his way to the ring.  Dar argues with the referee while Alicia continues to talk.

Match Number Two:  Cedric Alexander versus Noam Dar

Dar turns around and Alexander with a Lumbar Check for the three count.

Winner:  Cedric Alexander

After the match, Alicia continues to talk on the phone.

We go to commmercial.
