WWE RAW REPORT: REMEMBERING BOBBY HEENAN, A CHALLENGER FOR THE MIZ, A MOMENT FOR THE AGES, FOUR IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THE WOMEN, AND LOTS OF VIDEO PACKAGES FOR NO MERCY

By Richard Trionfo on 2017-09-18 23:02:00

We begin tonight's show with a graphic In Memory of Bobby Heenan.

We are in San Jose, California and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Booker T.

Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring.

He welcomes everyone to Raw and he mentions that they are six days away from No Mercy and he is excited.  Kurt says there are two matches that are Wrestlemania worthy.  John Cena versus Roman Reigns.  Two icons that don't like each other.  Brock Lesnar defends the Universal Title against Braun Strowman.

The Miz' music interrupts and he comes to the ring with Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel.

Kurt says he is so glad Miz could come out here.  He congratulates Miz for being a father.

Miz tells Kurt to save his well wishes.  He is sick of being looked over again.  He says he is seen as an afterthought.  You are hyping No Mercy, but you are doing it without your biggest star.  This is the second pay per view in a row that the Intercontinental Title will not be defended.

Kurt says Jeff Hardy, Matt Hardy, Elias, and Jason Jordan will be in a Fatal Four Way Match to see who faces Miz at No Mercy.

Miz says if you want a bad guitar player or the Hardys to have a shot, that is fine, but there are too many people who deserve a shot ahead of Jason Jordan.  Miz says that Bo and Curtis have done so much and are always passed over.  Miz asks Kurt if Jason will give him a World's Greatest Father mug.

Kurt says that he hopes Miz wil change when he becomes a father.

Miz says he will be there from day one and he will never have to ask why didn't daddy want me.  Miz says he will be a better father than Kurt Angle and a better champion than Kurt ever way.  Miz says they should be the priority but you are making it Jason Jordan and you are doing it at the expense of the locker room.  It does not matter if you are abandoning your duties as Raw General Manager or walking out on your unborn son.  You can always count on Kurt Angle to be a deadbeat.

Jason Jordan's music comes out and he tells Miz if he says anything else about Kurt, he will knock Miz' teeth down his throat.  Jason tells dad that he has a suggestion.  He tells Kurt to put Bo and Curtis in the match so Miz cannot make any excuses when he faces Miz for the title.

Miz reminds Jordan that he has given himself a worse chance to win and he is incompetent like his dad.

Jordan attacks Axel and Dallas.

Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax walk in the back because their match is next.  We go to commercial.

We are back and Jason Jordan is stopped by his father from pacing and he tells Jason to focus.  Jason says he hears it from everyone and he sees the looks.  When they see what he does to Miz for the Intercontinental Title, the looks and whispers are going to stop.

Kurt wants to know what happens if it continues.  Will he attack everyone?  Kurt tells Jason he can fight back but it takes more strength to not fight back.  He knows what Jason can do.  To get back at the Miz, win tonight and then beat him on Sunday for the Intercontinental Title.

Match Number One:  Alexa Bliss versus Nia Jax in a Non Title Match

The bell rings and Alexa goes into the ropes to avoid Nia and then she goes to the floor.  Alexa with a waist lock and Nia tries to whip Alexa off using her hips and after a few attempts, she succeeds and Alexa goes to the floor.  Alexa returns to the ring and she hides behind the referee and then she tries to slap Nia but Nia blocks it and she lifts Alexa by the air.

Alexa tries to escape and Nia stops her on the apron.  Alexa slaps Nia and then goes up the ramp.

Sasha Banks' music plays and Alexa goes back towards the ring and she runs into Nia and Alexa is down.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Nia with a splash into the corner followed by a biel as Sasha watches at ringside.  Nia misses a shoulder into the corner and hits the ring post.  Alexa with kicks and a drop kick.  Alexa goes up top but holds her ribs.  Nia catches Alexa and hits a Samoan drop for the three count.

Winner:  Nia Jax

After the match, Sasha Banks climbs on Nia's back and chokes her and punches Nia.  Nia with a snap mare to Sasha.

Before Nia can destroy either Sasha or Alexa, Bayley's music plays and she makes her way to the ringside area.

Bayley gets on the apron and enters the ring.  Bayley, Alexa, and Sasha with a triple shoulder tackle to take Nia down.

Sasha and Bayley celebrate and then Alexa sneaks in to have their raise her hands, but Sasha with kicks and Bayley with a belly-to-belly suplex.

We go to commercial.

We are back with some of the comments about the passing of Bobby Heenan.

It is time to take a look at the Universal Title Match.

We see comments from 2002 by Paul Heyman about Brock Lesnar.  We see footage of Brock's destruction of the WWE roster.

We move on to footage of Braun's destruction of Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.  

We hear what Paul Heyman said about what Braun did to Brock at SummerSlam and the following night on Raw.  

We see the footage to match what Paul said last week about Brock and Braun.

We see what happened last week when Braun popped up after a German suplex.  

Sheamus and Cesaro are in the ring and Sheamus talks about nostalgia and how it is everywhere.  All of you love nostalgia.  You love to avoid your harsh realities of the good old days.  They do not live in the past, they live in the present.  They destroy nostalgia acts like the Hardys.

Cesaro says you like Dean and Seth because the Shield is back together and nothing can go wrong.  Something will go wrong when they get their hands on them Sunday night.

Sheamus says their friendship is a fraud.  They are selfish and they are using the other for their own selfish needs.

Cesaro says it works as long as the good times keep rolling.  When the music stops and the fun ends, the nostalgia will fade and the truth will roll in and that truth is that Seth and Dean cannot stand each other.

Sheamus says their friendship is fragile and will crack.  Sheamus says they will be there to pick up the Raw Tag Team Titles.

Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose come out and Seth asks if they are the nostalgia acts.  He says it looks like Taxi Driver had an ugly baby with Braveheart.  He says they are right about something.  They are having the times of their lives and no matter what they are brothers.

Dean says that brothers might fight but they don't leave the house dressed like that.

Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows come out and Karl says you both claim to be the best brothers, but Sheamus and Cesaro walked out on them last week.  Karl says Dean and Seth are not good brothers and took advantage of their disadvantage.  Luke says that doesn't make you brothers, it makes you NERDS

Seth says they shouldn't have said that.  Dean says nobody calls him a nerd and then Dean goes after Luke while everyone else battles.Seth sends Anderson out of the ring and the champions are in the ring.  We go to commercial.
