WWE RAW REPORT: A CHANGE TO THE TLC MATCH, MORE MATCHES FOR SUNDAY, TAG TITLE MATCH, STEEL CAGE MATCH, HOW DOES FINN COUNTER LAST WEEK'S WYATT SEGMENT

By Richard Trionfo on 2017-10-16 23:04:00

It is time for MizTV and the host makes his way to the ring with Curtis Axel, Sheamus, and Cesaro.

The ring is adorned with tables, ladders, and chairs.

The crowd chants for Curtis Axel before Miz welcomes everyone to MizTV.  Miz says Kurt Angle sent them away without what the people wanted.  Kurt would have lost his main event if they shattered the Shield.  If they shattered the Shield, Sheamus and Cesaro would not get their chance to win back the tag titles.

Cesaro says everyone is excited for the friendship between Dean, Seth, and Roman, but that is all they will have after they win the Tag titles.

Sheamus says shattered is the word because they are going to shatter the Shield into three pieces.  Sheamus tells everyone to Respect the Hawk.  They will take back their tag titles.  Then the Shield will break just like he is going to break Dean Ambrose's back . . . with a chair.  Cesaro says Seth will break a leg when he is pushed off a ladder.  Miz says Roman's spirit will be broken when he sends him through a table.

Miz says they will expose the Shield as a novelty act.  They are not as good or were as good as you think they are.  The Shield cannot contend with them.  The Shield is co-workers amongst each other.  Miz says they are a family.  He would do anything for Curtis, Bo, Sheamus, Cesaro, or the fourth member of their team . . . Braun Strowman.

Braun makes his way to the ring.

Braun says he would have shattered the Shield tonight.  Last week, they came together and gave him a Cerberus Bomb through the announcement table.  That is because none of them could stop him on their own.  Now, he tears them apart, one by one, until they are done and gone forever.  That starts tonight inside a steel cage with Roman Reigns.  The cage will be locked shut so Roman cannot run away from him.

Miz says The Shield is no match for this.  Do you think they can take them on?  

The crowd thinks they can and that leads to a Really rally.  Miz says that catchphrase is nostalgia and they can throw that away.  Dean must be drinking the Kool-Aid and he said if you want to talk about four or five, they accept the challenge.

Kurt Angle comes out before Miz announces the fifth member.  He says she does not care what Dean said.

Miz says that words matter and he reminds Kurt about the Three 'I's.  Make them prove they can take on all of these people.  If these heroes can go against all odds.

Kurt tells Miz to shut the hell up.  Kurt says he is the Raw General Manager and we will settle it in the ring.

Kurt says if Miz wants a fifth member, Braun has to win his match against Roman Reigns.  However, if Braun loses tonight, it is back to a three-on-three match.

Braun says they accept.

Kurt says that so there will not be any chaos, during the Tag Title Match and Steel Cage match, everyone is banned from ringside.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Alicia Fox blames the referee for saying she tapped out because she was scratching her nose.  Alicia says she should be facing Asuka and she demands her t-shirt.

Enzo makes his way to the ring.  Enzo says he hears a few boos and he says you are wondering where is his Cruiserweight Title and we see the match from last week when Mustafa Ali pulled Enzo out of the ring when he appeared to have won the match only to see Kalisto become the New Cruiserweight Champion.

Enzo says he wants to be real for a minute.  He says he got nuked, duped, screwed, and robbed of his Cruiserweight Title.  Enzo says he had to deal with a corrupt GM.  Enzo also says that Kalisto robbed him of the Cruiserweight Title.

Kalisto's music plays and he makes his way to the ring.  

Kalisto tells Enzo enough is enough and that he has a big mouth and never shuts up.  Kalisto says you can blame him, Kurt Angle, the entire 205 Live roster, or the WWE Universe.  There ain't gonna be no excuses at TLC when he comes out of there as the Cruiserweight Champion.

Enzo says he has money stacked taller than Kalisto.  Enzo says he will not be getting his hands dirty since he won't be fighting tonight.  Enzo says the zo train is coming through.

Noam Dar, Tony Nese, Ariya Daivari, and Drew Gulak attack Kalisto.

Enzo asks if that is too brutal and he insults Kalisto's mask.  Enzo says he doesn't want to get his clothes dirty.

Mustafa Ali's music plays and he comes to the ring and he avoids Gulak and hits a rana on Nese.  Ali kicks Gulak and then clotheslines Dar.  Ali with a round kick to Daivari and Enzo attacks Ali from behind.  Gulak, Daviari, Nese, Dar, and Enzo attack Kalisto.
