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 have a video package for the WWE Championship Match between Samoa Joe and AJ Styles in Australia.

Elias is in the back strumming his guitar and Kevin Owens shows up.  Elias complains about getting cashews instead of almonds and he throws them at the backstage worker.  Kevin samples some of the spinach and takes a water as we go to commercial.

We are back with a look at WWE 2K19

Kevin Owens and Elias are in the ring.

Elias asks everyone who wants to walk with Elias.  

Kevin says that he looks forward to walking with Elias when they face Bobby Lashley and John Cena on Saturday.  Kevin says teaming up makes sense.  They are fantastic competitors and a couple of great guys.  What doesn't make sense is John Cena teaming with Bobby Lashley.  Elias says it is like having a basketball team in Seattle.  Kevin says he cannot understand John Cena.  Kevin says Cena has been living up to one of his catchphrases lately.  We really can't see John Cena.  Elias says the last time he saw John Cena was at Wrestlemania when Cena ruined his Wrestlemania moment.  Kevin says Cena ruins things like the people of Seattle.  John Cena will not ruin their night on Saturday because not only are they great guys, they are smart guys and they have figured out why John is teaming with Bobby Lashley.  

Kevin says no one has had more big matches than John Cena and that is why they call him Big Match John.  Every occasion to see John Cena in the ring is special because his ego is as big as the people of Seattle's ego.  Elias says John needs to be in matches against people like them because it keeps John relevant.  Kevin says that you are looking at the absolute best in front of you.  That is why Bobby Lashley and John Cena have no chance on Saturday.  Kevin says he will power bomb Cena on the apron one more time.

Lio Rush comes out and he says that John Cena is a legend.  Lio says that some say that Cena is the greatest of all time.  Lio tells Kevin that you better not overlook your match tonight because if you do, you are about as foolish as he has made him look the last few weeks.  

We go to commercial.

We are back and Shawn Michaels makes his way to the ring.

Shawn says it feels good to be home again.  The last time ever.  You gotta imagine what it is like to know going into something how intense and intimidating it will be when before it happens you can begin to feel that gamut of emotions.  Is it stress, anxiety, nervousness, sadness, or joy?  Shawn says he has felt each and every one of them with you but now it is time.  This Saturday in Melbourne.  

Shawn says he pried his wallet open and booked a first class flight for the 100 hour trip to Australia.  Shawn says he wanted to attend the show as a fan.  An innocent bystander . . . until a couple of weeks ago.  Then it got personal.  The Undertaker, through no fault of his own, made this personal a long time ago with Triple H, but then Taker made him make a choice for who he thought would win and who he would stand behind.

Shawn says he had nothing but the utmost respect for the Undertaker but every day of the week and twice on Sunday, he will pick his best friend.  For one reason or another, that upset the Undertaker.  You made this personal and now it is.  You have your brother Kane in your corner.  Triple H has his brother in his corner.  Shawn tells Kane that if you or anyone else tries to crowd that ring, he will brush you back courtesy of some Sweet Chin Music.

Kane and Undertaker leave the ring as we go to credits.
