WWE RAW REPORT: A GAUNTLET TO DETERMINE THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE WOMEN, BROCK LESNAR AND ENZO AMORE HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON, THE AMBULANCE RETURNS, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2017-06-26 23:05:00

We are back and it is time for Sasha Banks to choose her number and she is happy.

Paul Heyman is in the ring and he introduces himself and he says he is the advocate for the beast that instills fear in the face of everyone who enters the ring with him, BROCK LESNAR.  Paul says there is one exception that defies that rule.  The fearless Samoa Joe.  Samoa Joe does not fear Brock Lesnar.  Samoa Joe stepped into this ring and pulled a cheap shot on Brock. . . 

Paul says if he wanted to start a fight in the locker room, he would make a cheap shot so everyone would pile on to separate them.  Brock was held back and then Joe hit cheap shot number two when he kicked Brock in the face.  One would think by now, Samoa Joe would have some fear in his heart for Brock Lesnar.  Samoa Joe remains fearless.  Is that impressive to him?  No, it means that Samoa Joe is a Samoan Dumbass.

Samoa Joe is not burdened with great intelligence, but it takes a smart man to know when to fear.  Paul tells Joe it is time to start fearing Brock Lesnar.  While you hae enjoyed the anticipation, now bathroom break is over.  It is time to hit record and it is the moment you will talk about tomorrow.

Paul introduces the beast and conqueror who will call out Samoa Joe tonight for a fight . . . BROCK LESNAR.

Samoa Joe attacks Lesnar on the stage and he applies the Kokina Clutch.  Brock turns around and runs Joe into the TitanTron and they continue to battle.  Joe returns to the choke and Brock's face turns red, redder than usual.

Wrestlers come out to pull Joe off Lesnar and Joe goes to the back.

We go to commercial.

We are back with a Moments Ago Moment of Samoa Joe taking advantage of the Brock Bounce with an attack from behind on the WWE Universal Champion.

We are back and Akira Tozawa is at ringside for the next match.

Match Number Four:  Lince Dorado versus Neville in a Non Title Match

Neville with a kick to the midsection and he sends Dorado into the turnbuckles.  Neville chokes Dorado in the corner.  Neville with a hard Irish whip  Neville sends Dorado into the turnbuckles again.  Neville waves at Tozawa as he continues to send Dorado into the turnbuckles.  Dorado sends Neville into the turnbuckles but Neville with a kick and a side head lock take down.  Dorado with a chop but Neville with a back heel kick.  Dorado with a drop kick followed by a tope con hilo followed by a cross body for a near fall.  Neville with a back heel kick followed by a drop kick to the temples and Neville applies the Rings of Saturn and Dorado taps out.

Winner:  Neville

After the match, Neville tells Tozawa to get into the ring and he does. 

Titus O'Neil's music plays and he comes out.  He asks why would you fight for free since he just finalized a match between them for Great Balls of Fire.   Titus tells Neville we are going to find out real soon if the Neville Level has anything in comparison to the Power of Tozawa.

Emma chooses between the final two balls in the tumbler as we go to commercial.

We take a look back at how Raw started and we are told that Roman got out of the ambulance and is looking for Braun.

Paul Heyman walks in the back and he is ambushed for comments about what happened between Samoa Joe and Brock Lesnar.

Paul says that Samoa Joe proved everything he said about him.  Joe is the Samoan that Samoans do not want to be associated with.  Joe had to sneak behind his client to choke him out.  If Joe applies that hold in 13 days, he will have an ex-champion as his client.  Paul says he is loving every minute of this.  Brock has his back against the wall, so his client cannot be jumped from behind.  Paul says this will be a down and dirty fight to a brutal finish.  Joe will finally be taken to Suplex City and given an F-5.  He will finally be conquered and victimized.  Joe will wake up in the trainer's room and he will ask if that is what it is like to fight the beast . . .Goodness gracious Great Balls of Fire.

Alexa stops Nia Jax in the back and asks her what number did she get.  Alexa says they are alike.  She has been judged by people.  No one expected her to succeed.  Even her mother laughed.  They are both judged on how they look and that is not right.  It is not easy to be judged.  Whether you go out first, last or in between, there is not a single woman in that match who can drag her down.

Nia thanks Alexa and Alexa wishes her luck.

Nia says she does not need it and she will face Alexa for the title at Great Balls of Fire.

We go to commercial.
