WWE RAW REPORT: PANDEMONIUM TO END ANOTHER EPISODE OF RAW, TWO TITLE MATCHES, MANY RETURNS . . . SOME SHOCKING, THE MONSTER PUSH FOR THE MONSTER CONTINUES, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2017-10-30 23:05:00

We start off with a look back at last week's Raw when something we did not expect to happen took place at the end of the show.  Smackdown invaded Raw and laid waste to members of the Raw roster.

We are in Baltimore, Maryland and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Booker T.

The Raw locker room is on the stage and Kurt Angle is in the ring.

Kurt welcomes everyone to Raw.  He says he usually comes out with a smile on his face, but last week Shane McMahon took what he thought was friendly competition and took it too far.  Kurt says he wants to apologize because he let his friendship with Shane get in the way.  Kurt says he put everyone in harm's way and he will never let it happen again.

Kurt promises . . . 

Stephanie McMahon's music plays and she makes her way to the ring.

Stephanie says she cannot let the show start off that way.  She welcomes everyone to Raw.  She tells everyone that you missed him.  Stephanie mentions the 25th anniversary of Raw in January.  Stephanie says that she supported the decision to make Kurt Angle the general manager of Raw.  Stephanie says even with the illegitimate child situation, the viral infection, and Braun Strowman being compacted, you have been in front of the brand.

Stephanie says that Kurt earned her respect . . . until you let her brother Shane put Raw under siege.  It takes 20 years to earn a reputation and 20 seconds to lose it.

Kurt starts to talk and Stephanie cuts him off and says she is not here for his excuses.  Stephanie says that Shane lost at Hell in a Cell to defend his family's honor but then Shane comes out to belittle her show.  Stephanie says Shane exploited your friendship and showed your kindness was your weakness.  Shane came out and turned 25 years into a mockery.  It was you.  Stephanie suggests that there should be a fourth 'i'.  It is incompetence. 

Stephanie tells Kurt he will be the team captain of Raw and she says she expects Raw to win and she expected total annihilation.  Stephanie says if Kurt doesn't win, she will find a new general manager.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Kurt is trying to apologize to Stephanie and she says if Kurt doesn't believe her, he can ask Mick Foley.

One limo leaves and another arrives. 

The Miz emerges and Kurt yells at him for being late.  Miz says he was being fashionably late and he emerges with Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas.

Kurt mentions that he is the captain of the Raw team. 

Miz says that it shows that Kurt's incompetence gets rewarded.

Kurt says that Miz is a coward for not being there last week.  Kurt says he does not want to have someone like Miz representing Raw. 

Miz asks who is his opponent and Kurt says he will find out when he goes to the ring later.

Alicia tells Bayley that she is your captain and she wants to make sure that Bayley understands that Alicia needs to take her duties as captain very seriously.  She does not have time to wrestle Bayley, but she has a suitable replacement.

Match Number One:  Bayley versus Nia Jax

Bayley charges at Nia and Nia goes for a slam but Bayley escapes.  Bayley with forearms but Nia sends Bayley to the floor.  Nia sends Bayley back into the ring and Bayley hits a drop kick to knock Nia off the apron and send her to the floor.

As Nia Jax makes her way up the ramp, Samoa Joe's music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

We are back and Samoa Joe says it seems judging from the response that some of you have missed him.  Joe says that is amusing because he has not missed any of you.  How many of you reached out to him, not get wells, but to show that you actually cared.  The answer is none of you.  Joe says he cares about none of you.  Joe says he will use your disrespect as fuel to destroy whoever comes into the ring to face him.  He will think of each of you as he faces his opponent.
