WWE RAW REPORT: THEY HAVE A NAME, WAS THIS ELIAS' NIGHT?, DANA FOUND A WEAKNESS, FATAL FOUR WAY MATCH, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2017-11-27 23:05:00

We begin with a video package featuring Kane's comments about Braun Strowman and then we see what Kane has done to Braun over the last few weeks.

We are in Knoxville, Tennessee and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Booker T.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

Roman says last week was a big week for him.  The Shield reunited and then they beat the New Day Survivor Series.  The next night, he got an opportunity.  Roman appreciates the cheers from the crowd and then he mentions that he is the new Intercontinental Champion.

We take a look at comments from Miz after Raw when he was attacked by the Shield.  

Roman says you aren't going to see the Miz for a while, but you will see this title.  Roman says that Miz was right about one thing, that this title is prestigous.  He will be a fightning champion and this is THE Title.  If you want this, all you have to do is stand up and take it.

Miz' music plays and Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas make their way to the stage.  Bo says how dare you disrespect the most must see Intercontinental Champion of All Time.  The only thing that hurts more than the pain in his neck is the pain in his heart of having to see Roman with the title.  They will not be able to take revenge but they know someone who can.

Elias' guitar is heard and he makes his way to the stage.

Elias says he will be performing later tonight.  Elias says that MIz is a good guy and when he saw these two men lost and abandoned after his defeat, he knew he could guide them and lead them to find the fire that was in their hearts.  Tonight, Elias says he will take the Intercontinental Champion.

Roman says it sounds like Elias wants to walk with the Big Dog and Roman says that he's got it.  Roman tells Elias to look at Curtis Axel and he tells Elias he hopes he can sing with a neck brace because after tonight, he might be wearing one.

As Roman goes up the ramp, Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring for his match.
