WWE RAW REPORT: CHAMPION VERSUS CHAMPION, A BOSS RETURN, PAUL IS SPEECHLESS, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2019-08-12 22:59:00

In case you missed it last night, Seth Rollins challenged Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship and Seth Rollins was able to fight through the attack by Lesnar to become the new Universal Champion.

We are in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Renee Young.

The Universal Champion Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring.

Seth says he wants to be honest, but last night he didn't know if he had what it took to beat Brock Lesnar.  The last few weeks have been the toughest.  He was not at 100% last night and he stared Brock in the eyes.  In this ring, Brock is everything that he is touted to be.  He is a freaking beast.  When he emptied the tank out, something happened.  You guys came alive.  In that moment, you took him to a place he has never been before in his entire career.  You took him to a place he couldn't go on his own.  You took him to a place only we could go together.  At that moment, he knew what it took to slay the beast.  Seth says he remembered that he is Seth 'Freakin' Rollins and that is why he is standing here as the Universal Champ.

AJ Styles' music plays and he comes out with Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.  They make their way to the ring.

AJ tells Seth that they would like to be the first to congratulate you.  AJ says here is where it gets tricky.  You don't have to worry about Brock Lesnar, but you have to worry about the man standing in front of you.  Ever since he came to his senses, he has a lot to prove.  AJ says he wants to challenge Seth tonight.  He wants to prove that he is much much much much of a better champion than Seth.  

Seth says he has always had a ton of respect for AJ, but not any more.  It doesn't matter how beaten up he is, he does not back down from a fight.  Later tonight, he will teach AJ a lesson in respect so challenge accepted.

AJ offers his hand to Seth but Seth does not shake it.  AJ tells Karl and Luke to leave the ring and then they shake hands.

Luke and Karl get back on the apron but AJ tells them to stop but they got Seth scared.  

The Street Profits are in the back and Montez talks about the Rollins/Styles match.  Universal Champion versus US Champion.  Tonight's Raw is getting all of the smoke.  Montez talks about the man who slayed the beast.  Angelo says Seth is awesome but the post show party when a little long and he is dehydrated.

Sami Zayn interrupts and he tells them to enjoy it while you have it.  This company will suck your soul.  The parasites in the crowd will suck the life out of your soul.  Look at Seth Rollins.  He was the architect of the Shield and now he is a pandering fool.  Even Becky Lynch.  When she became The Man, it was real.  Now it is so manufactured.

Angelo asks if it happens to everyone, even Samoa Joe.

Sami says Joe is a perfect example.  He was destroying people three years ago when he debuted and last week, he was caring about Roman Reigns.

Sami realizes that Joe is standing behind him and he tells Sami there is no backing down from what you said.  Let's settle it in the ring right now and you can show your countrymen if you are more than Kevin Owens' waterboy.  Joe pushes Sami down and we go to commercial.

We are back and King of the Ring is coming to Raw next week.

We take a look back at the recent history of attempted attacks on Roman Reigns.

Match Number One:  Samoa Joe versus Sami Zayn

Zayn rakes Joe's eyes across the top rope and he chops and punches Joe.  Joe with a shoulder tackle followed by head butts.  Joe with the Coquina Clutch and Samitaps out.

Winner:  Samoa Joe

After the match, Joe says he wants to make himself very clear.  He may have forgiven Roman for laying the blame on him, it does not extend to any of you.  It does not extend to any of you who would propagate the lie.  Joe says he will never forgive any of you people.

The Miz walks in the back as we go to commercial.

Match Number Two:  MIz versus Dolph Ziggler

Ziggler makes his way to the ring and he is not dressed to wrestle, but he is dressed to be heckled.  Dolph says he hopes Miz is happy and he calls Miz a coward.  Everyone knows you didn't have a chance against him at SummerSlam so you sic Goldberg on him.  All part of your master plan?  You forgot, he got speared so many times yesterday that he cannot medically compete tonight.  Miz screwed Miz.  You don't get a match tonight.  Your plan didn't come through and he is not medically cleared to wrestle.  The blood thirsty Canadians would love to see this match.  Too damn bad.

Dolph attacks Miz from behind when MIz turns his back and Dolph kicks MIz in the corner.  Ziggler punches Miz.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Miz with a knee to the midsection.  Miz blocks a punch and Miz punches Ziggler.  Miz punches Dolph in the corner and the referee pulls Dolph out of the corner.  Miz kicks Dolph in the corner.  Miz with a running double knee strike and he hits a second one.  Miz finishes with an Awesome Clothesline.  Miz goes up top and hits a double sledge to the top of the head.  Miz with kicks to Dolph's shoulder.  Miz misses a round kick but Miz with a double leg take down.  Ziggler with a snap mare and then he moves when Miz charges into the corner and Miz hits the ring post.

Dolph with a Zig Zag for a near fall.  Dolph sets for a super kick but Miz blocks it and he takes Dolph down and applies the figure four leg lock.  Dolph tries to roll over to reverse the hold or get to the ropes but Miz pulls Dolph into the center of the ring and Dolph taps out.

Winner:  Miz

After the match, Dolph takes the mic and says that Miz couldn't beat him at SummerSlam and that he isn't the best wrestler in his family.  Dolph says it is a flesh wound and then he says Miz is a reality show wannabe . . . 

Miz gives Dolph a Skull Crushing Finale.

Charly Caruso is in the interview area with Becky Lynch.  Becky says she can take it from here.  She didn't come here to celebrate.  Nattie owed her a debt and she gives Nattie respect.  Becky says she was coming for anyone who did her wrong.  She will not rest until everyone is dealt with.  Your smart play is to get her before she gets you.  Game on.

We go to commercial.

We are back with Elias.  He says another night and another legend attacks him.  Elias says he has figured out the pattern so let's get this out of the way.  If you are going to attack him, come out now.  No one comes out and Elias says it is history in the making.  The first uninterrupted Elias performance.

Ricochet interrupts Elias.

Ricochet says he hates to break it to you.  People don't come out to interrupt you because it is the cool thing to do, it is because you suck.

Elias says someone coming out dressed like a comic book character doesn't tell him what is cool.  Elias wants a referee.

Match Number Three:  Elias versus Ricochet

Ricochet with a handstand head scissors and drop kick for a near fall.  Ricochet with an elbow to Elias.  Elias with punches and kicks.  Elias with a back body drop and Elias gets a near fall.  Elias with a reverse chin lock.  Elias with a take down.  Ricochet with forearms but Elias sends Ricochet into the turnbuckles.  Ricochet with a rolling drop kick.  Ricochet with a head scissors and a jumping enzuigiri.  Elias goes to the floor.  Ricochet with a suicide dive but Elias moves and Ricochet lands hard on the floor.  Elias grabs the guitar and the referee warns Elias.
