WWE RAW REPORT: SHAWN MICHAELS BRINGS SOME FRIENDS, SHIELD VERSUS BRAUN AND BUDDIES IN SINGLES MATCHES, RONDA VERSUS RUBY, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2018-10-01 23:06:00

We are in Seattle, Washington and your announcers are Michael Cole, Renee Young, and Corey Graves.

Dean Ambrose makes his way to the ring.  

He is asked about the comments made last week by Drew McIntyre, Dolph Ziggler, and Braun Strowman.  Dean says that there is some truth to what they said last week.  Seth and Roman are both champions.  Dean says he has nothing.  He was a champion on his own before.  When he got injured and lost a year of his career, he was replaced pretty quickly by Jason Jordan. 

Dean is asked if he thought about leaving The Shield.  He says he thinks about a lot of things.  Maybe he turned in his notice and gave up his black uniform.  Maybe the dog tags don't mean as much as they did before.  Maybe he ran Roman's car off the road and he won't even be here tonight.

Dean is asked about the questions being asked about him.  Dean wonders if they are asking if he is still part of the Shield.  Will he turn his back on them?  When will he finally snap because he is a lunatic and you don't know what he will do next.  Maybe they are thinking that Dean is waiting for THE PERFECT TIME when nobody is looking or watching for him to slip the knife right in their back.

He is asked about the end of Raw.  Dean asks if they are looking for him to say that he is thinking why he came back to Raw.  He could be on Smackdown and doing his own thing because since he came back, he has been cleaning up his brother's messes.  Are you asking if he is fed up with the Shield.  Dean says to look at what he does by standing by his family.  The Shield is not a business or a brand.  It is a brotherhood.  They will always ride into battle together.

Baron Corbin's music plays and he makes his way to the stage.

Baron says that was a good story about brotherhood but all he heard was a bunch of whining.  If there something gnawing at that little lunatic brain of his. 

Dean asks if Baron is also a therapist in addition to being a substitute teacher.  Dean wonders if Baron is salty after he could not finish off the Shield the last few weeks.

Baron says that they were not causing chaos and no cops were called so it was a win for him.  Baron says if you want to be judged by your actions, you can choose one of these three options.  You can face Seth Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship.  You can face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship.  You can go one on one with Braun Strowman.

Dean thinks about it and Baron asks if it is his brothers or his career.

Dean says that if you think Baron is going to come out and dangle a carrot and watch him dance, you don't know him.  What about option four and he kicks your ass right now.

Baron says he will make the decision for Dean and it will be Braun Strowman right now.
