WWE RAW REPORT: TAG TITLE MATCH NEXT WEEK, WHO IS THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE DIVAS TITLE?, WHO GETS A TITLE MATCH?, WHAT ABOUT THE SHANE/TAKER MATCH?, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-02-29 23:12:00

We start off this week's show with a look back at what Triple H did to Roman Reigns last week on Raw.  

We are in Nashville, Tennessee and your announcers are Michael Cole, John Layfield, and Byron Saxton.

The WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Triple H makes his way to the ring and he makes his way to the ring and he shows off his title belt. 

As he walks to the ring, we see photos of what was left of Roman Reigns' face after Monday night's attack.

Hunter says Authority, a select few have it while the rest of you bow down to it.  Hunter says that all of you have an authority figure in your life that you have to listen to.  A figure that tells you what to do, where to go, and how to dress.  Every single one of you hate it.  You all want to stand up to it and challenge that authority.  You do not because you are afraid.  That fear is not a bad thing.  That fear is what keeps things in place.  That fear provides you with the ability to know your place in life.

Roman Reigns should have known that fear and remembered his place.  He tried to challenge and disrespect authority.  Roman tried to disrespect and challenge him.   Where did that challenge and disrespect get Roman Reigns?  He is sitting home breathing through his mouth, hoping beyond hope that his dream of going to Wrestlemania still exists.  Roman should know his place.  You do not challenge authority.  That is a message to anyone who can hear his voice.

Dean Ambrose's music plays and he makes his way to the ring and he appears to be doing a lot better than last week.

Dean says he wants to tell Hunter that he talked to Roman Reigns.  He tells Hunter Roman says hi and he is coming for Hunter.  Dean says that he figures Hunter would know what that means.

Hunter says fresh off his win from the Oscars for Best Supporting Actor in a Bromance . . . Dean Ambrose.

Dean reminds Hunter he was in a movie and it was pretty good.  Dean says he is not going to go all Mad Max on him.  He wanted to talk to Hunter last week but he got mauled by a grizzly bear in a parking lot and then he is fighting Brock Lesnar in a Street Fight at Wrestlemania.  Then you hit Roman with a ring bell.  Shane McMahon comes back and he is going to face Undertaker in Hell in a Cell so their schedules did not mesh.

Dean asks Hunter if he likes Shane or not.

Dean says that he wanted to know who Hunter wanted to win the Triple Threat Match at Fastlane.  He decides to change the question and ask who he did not want to win that match.

Hunter says Dean is wasting his time, but the only two people who meant anything in that match were Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns so Dean was not even a factor in it.

Dean gets in Hunter's face and asks if he can see him now.  Dean says it is hard for Hunter to remember the little people all the time.  He says that he is the last person Hunter wanted to face at Wrestlemania.  

Hunter laughs and he says that Dean really is crazy.  Hunter says he always thought it was a skit he put on for you guys to make him look cool.

Dean wants to know why everyone keeps saying that.  He might not make the smartest decisions.  Hunter is real smart.  He is the cerebral assassin.  You are smart enough not to get in the ring with him because Hunter cannot beat him.  Dean says he can see it in Hunter's face and his body.  He says he can read Hunter like a book.  He can smell it on him.  Dean says Hunter does not think he can beat him.

Hunter says that unfamiliar smell is probably laundry detergent and clean clothes.  Hunter says it is money and power, something that Dean does not have.

Dean says that Hunter is saying some pretty mean things but that is all talk.  How about some action from the COO?  How about me versus you?

Dean says he is not done yet.  Dean says how about me versus you for that. Dean says that Roman won the right to fight for the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania, but that does not mean that you are going to be the champion on April 3rd.  Let's see if he is talking crazy and let's find out right now.

Hunter asks if that is how things work by saying something crazy and screaming RIGHT NOW and it just happens.  It does not work that way.  It intrigues him but he will think about whether it is best for business.  Hunter says he will think about it and he will give Dean an answer by the end of the night.  

Dean asks if he means the end of Raw or will it be by text later.  

Hunter says Dean does have something to do tonight.  He was going to give Dean the night off.  Hunter ran into a few fun fellows called the League of Nations.  Why don't you go one on one with Alberto Del Rio and he will have all of his fun friends out here.  We will see if you can respect authority.

We take a look back at Shane McMahon's return to Raw last week.

Bray says the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.  Bray says maybe he is insane.  Maybe his mind is key to saving the entire world.  It starts as an idea and that idea turns into a plan.  That plan turns into a beautiful symphony.  He tells everyone to join him and he will give you eternal paradise.  Defy him and you will end up exactly like the rest of them . . . conquered.
