WWE RAW REPORT: RONDA DEFENDS THE TITLE, BRAUN GETS HIS MATCHES, DEAN AND SETH, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2018-11-19 23:00:00

Seth Rollins continues his search for Dean Ambrose.  Charly Caruso stops Seth and asks him about Dean's mind games.  

Seth says he is going to find Dean Ambrose and he is going to hurt Dean Ambrose.  Dean can say what he wants about him, but to talk about Roman, that is going too far.

We see Dean walk behind Seth.

Seth says he is going to ask Dean why he turned his back on them.

Titus O'Neil tells Seth that Dean was just here but Seth goes down the wrong hallway.

WWE Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey makes her way to the ring.

Ronda says she will be defending her title at TLC against Nia Jax.  Ronda says she is aware of how dangerous Nia Jax is.  Look at Becky's face.  At TLC, she is going to tap out Nia Jax.  Win, lose, or draw, and it will be a win, the next chapter of Ronda Rousey versus Charlotte Flair will be written.  She will find Charlotte and finish what they started last night.  Ronda says she did not come here to hit her poses and placate for your sympathy and talk about fighting.  She came here to show what a true champion is.  They will face anyone who comes at her and send them down to the bottom.  A champion cannot pick and choose her fights, that is a contender's luxury.  A true champion stands guard regardless of how you feel.  If you cannot defend your position, you step aside.  

Ronda says this is her on her worst day.  If you know her, you know she is not stepping aside.  If she cannot defend her title tonight, then she does not deserve to be champion.

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

Baron tells Ronda her request to defend the title has been denied.  Baron says that he, in good conscience, cannot let her fight tonight.  

Ronda says she has had 17 fights and she never pulled out of one or postponed one.  She never did because that is what it takes to be the baddest bitch on the planet.  She tells Baron to find a challenger for her title.  Maybe you want a shot at the champ?  

Baron wishes Ronda luck and he will find an opponent and she will be the next Raw Women's Champion.

We go to commercial.

Dean asks if he is smelling the stench of Seth Rollins' fear.  Maybe it is Los Angeles.  Dean says it is coming from you people.  If you find him, there is no explanation and there is no apology.  Dean says he will just burn it down.

Dean says this is too easy.  You want to see Seth Rollins come out and beat him up because he turned on Seth and Roman?  Because he turned on you and all of your dirty little children?  If you had the proper motivation, you would have done the same thing.  You would stab your own family members in the back.  Dean says he was justified.  He has been around people like you his whole life and he does not feel crummy.  The way you cheer for Seth Rollins makes him sick.  Dean wants to know what is that smell.
