WWE RAW REPORT: STIRRING THE POTS, IC TITLE MATCH, NEW MATCHES FOR FASTLANE, AND MATCHES FOR SMACKDOWN

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-02-15 23:03:00

Tonight’s show starts off with a look back at last week’s Raw and the contract signing for the main event at Fastlane.

We are in Anaheim, California and your announcers are John Layfield, Michael Cole, and Byron Saxton.

Dean Ambrose makes his way to the ring and he has something to say. 

Dean says this Sunday at Fastlane, he is in for the fight of his life.  It is being called Brother versus Brother versus Beast.  Dean Ambrose versus Roman Regns versus Brock Lesnar.  That is Sunday and this is Monday Night Raw.  Dean says he learned that when the biggest bully comes after you, you gotta get your fingernails dirty and he did what he had to do.  Dean says the beast is probably angry at Deano right now.  Dean says that he thinks the beast is out for revenge.  Dean says that even though they are in Sunny California, an F-5 might be coming through town.

Dean says he can see Brock trying to get him on his shoulders for an F-5.  He tells the gorilla to come out if he is in the building or even in the state.

Instead of Brock Lesnar, Stephanie McMahon makes her way to the ring. 

Stephanie asks if she was what Dean was expecting.  She asks if Dean is filibustering due to lack of performance last week on Raw.  You didn’t get the job done against Brock and your buddy Roman Reigns came out.  What if Roman didn’t come out.  We will find out on Sunday.  If you can beat Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, you will be able to face her husband, the Game for the WWE Championship in the main event of Wrestlemania.

Dean says he knows how this works.  He says he wants to get to the fighting part. 

Stephanie says that Dean said he wants an F-5 tonight and she asks everyone if they want to see it.  If you want an F-5 tonight, you are going to get it.  However, not how you think.  F-5 stands for Fatal Five Way.  You will be an Intercontinental Title Match tonight.  Stephanie says if Roman interferes in this match, you are disqualified and you don’t have to be in the match at Fastlane.  Will Roman help to make things better for him at Fastlane.

Stephanie says the match is going to happen now.

We go to commercial.

We are back with a look at the end of the Intercontinental Title Match when Kevin Owens became the new Intercontinental Champion.

Dean Ambrose walks through the back and he is stopped by Renee Young.  She says that Dean must be in shock.  He says he is not surprised at what the Authority does.  A wise man said that once you lose something, you will get something better.  Did Gandhi say that?  Or Gallagher?  The Authority has motivated him to beat Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns at Fastlane to face Triple H at Wrestlemania.  Dean says he has nothing to lose while Hunter has everything to lose.

Kevin Owens is with Renee.  Kevin says he told everyone it was his Intercontinental Title so why not give him the respect he deserves.  He wants Renee to tell him he was right.

Dolph says he wants to be the first to congratulate Owens.

Kevin tells Dolph to get out of his spotlight.

Dolph says that Fastlane is Sunday and since he beat Owens the last few weeks, why not tell everyone that Dolph should be Owens' opponent.

Kevin thinks about it and says 'nah'.

The New Day makes its way to the ring.

We see what happened when the New Day crossed paths with Edge and Christian and the musical battle between the two, including the return of the Kazoo.

There will be a Cutting Edge Peep Show at Fastlane and the New Day will be Edge and Christian's guests.

Big E says the last time Edge and Christian stepped to your boys, they totally reeked of BOOTY.  Kofi says they broke fisticuffs rule number one.  You do not bring a kazoo to a trombone fight.  Xavier says that is not a real instrument.  He suggests they bring a piccolo, an electric jug, or a recorder.  Xavier exchanges to Big E what a recorder is and they make the noise.

Big E says that was the worst thing to happen to music since Coldplay performed at halftime of the biggest football game of the year . . . 

Kofi and Xavier stop Big E from saying the name.

Xavier says at Fastlane, your WWE Tag Team Champions of the World will be on the Cutting Edge Peep Show.

Big E wants to address Mark Henry walking out on the New Day last week.  Kofi says that Mark could have been the World's Strongest Unicorn but you turned into the World's Largest Booty Hole.
