WWE RAW REPORT: WILL THE MAIN EVENT OF BATTLEGROUND CHANGE?, SOME RETURNS TO ACTION, BECKY USES TITUS; ACTIONS FOR MOTIVATION, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-06-27 23:03:00

We are in Tampa, Florida and your announcers are Michael Cole, John Layfield, and Byron Saxton.

Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring.

Seth says in four weeks at Battleground, you will get the match you have always dreamt of.  A Triple Threat match with the members of the Shield for the WWE Championship.  Seth starts talking about Roman Reigns.  He says he is not supposed to talk about Roman Reigns, but he has a mic and he is in the center of the ring so he wants to talk about it.  He says the biggest mistake that Roman Reigns made embarassed him.  Bringing him into the fold and then Roman getting suspended soiled his name.  Then Roman makes a statement that same day.  He has it put on the TitanTron.

Seth says it is ridiculous that Roman Reigns is apologizing because he never apologized before.  It was always one versus all so you have no friends.  What about the fans?  You said you were THE GUY.  At least you admit you made a mistake.  Seth mentions the "I Own It" comment.  It is manly to own up after the fact.  The bottom line is that he owns Roman.  He says he always owned Roman.  He owned him at Wrestlemania and then at Money in the Bank.

Seth says that Roman does not deserve a second chance or forgiveness.  He does not deserve to be in the main event of Battleground.  The right thing to do is to take Roman Reigns out of that match and give him the one-on-one rematch with Dean Ambrose for the WWE Title that he rightfully deserves.

Dean Ambrose makes his way to the ring.

Dean asks Seth if he is okay.  He says he looks a little sick.  He wants to know if it is about Roman or if it is about Dean having the title.  Dean says Roman made a mistake.  Dean says he was friends wtih Seth and that is a huge mistake.  Dean says that Seth wears skinny jeans and that is a mistake.  Roman admitted he made a mistake and Dean says as far as he is concerned the Triple Threat Match is still on.

AJ Styles makes his way to the ring.

He says that Dean is on to things.  AJ says it should remain a Triple Threat Match.  Dean Ambrose versus Seth Rollins versus AJ Styles.  AJ says he is the guy who beat John Cena in a dream match.  Take out Roman Reigns and put him in and that resolves the situation.

Dean says he thinks Roman is still in the match.

AJ says why not put him in and make it a Fatal Four Way Match.

Seth says it needs to be a one on one match.

John Cena's music plays and he comes out.

John says that Dean Ambrose is a fighting champ.  He will fight a friend, he will fight a foe, he will fight a frog?  Will he fight a franchise?  John points out he has been the champion fifteen times and he had his first match in the WWE fourteen years ago.  For the last twelve years, he has lived in Tampa.  He says he has been sitting in traffic on the Veterans Expressway and was acting Funky Like a Monkey on South Howard Avenue.  John reminds Dean the last time they wrestled, he won.  Why not make it a Fatal Five Way.

Seth says it is going to be a one on one match.

Stephanie McMahon makes her way to the stage.

Stephanie says that she has a solution.  What happened to Roman Reigns was an embarassment, but the bigger embarassment is that Dean Ambrose is the World Champion.  She is mortified.  How do we reconcile this?  She is going to ask Shane . . . but he is not here again because he is on vacation.

John and AJ, that is a good idea to add you into the match, but an opportunity like that needs to be earned.  Seth Rollins will face John Cena.  AJ will face Dean Ambrose.  If you win your matches, you will be added to the title match at Battleground.  She wishes everyone but Dean luck tonight.

Charlotte and Dana Brooke walk in the back and so do Paige and Sasha Banks because they will be wrestling next.

We go to commercial.

Match Number One:  Charlotte and Dana Brooke versus Paige and Sasha Banks

Sasha and Charlotte start things off but Charlotte decides to tag in Dana.  Sasha sends Dana into the turnbuckles and then chokes her with her boot.  Dana sends Sasha into the turnbuckles and she pats Sasha on the head.  Sasha with a punch and then Paige wants to be tagged in and Sasha obliges.  Sasha and Paige with a double hip toss to Dana and a double drop kick to Charlotte.

We are back and Dana chokes Paige in the ropes and Charlotte is tagged in for a double suplex and Charlotte gets a near fall.  We see footage from the commercial break when Charlotte kicked Paige off the apron.  Charlotte gets a near fall.  Dana tags in and kicks Paige and then chokes her in a handstand.  Charlotte tags in and applies a reverse chin lock.  Charlotte with a snap swinging neck breaker and she knocks Sasha off the apron.  Dana with punches to Paige while the referee deals with Sasha.  Charlotte keeps Paige from making the tag and Charlotte runs Paige into the corner.  Paige with kicks and punches to get out of the corner.  Charlotte stops Paige but Paige is able to make the tag.

Sasha with clotheslines to Dana followed by a drop kick.  Dana tries to kick Sasha but Sasha blocks it and puts Dana in the ropes and hits a double knee strike.  Charlotte pulls Sasha out of the ring and misses a clothesline but Paige does not miss a kick.  Sasha with a knee followed by a lungblower and Banks Statement.  Dana taps out.

Michael Cole mentions that Raw is now airing live in China.

We see what Titus O'Neil did last week when he attacked Rusev on Raw after Rusev criticized Titus' parenting skills.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Lana introduces the greatest US Champion in history.

Match Number Two:  Rusev (with Lana) versus Titus O'Neil in a Non Title Match

Titus with a forearm as he walks into the ring and the referee holds Titus back.

The match starts and Titus with punches and forearms.  Titus with a European uppercut followed by an Irish whip and splash.  Titus with a near fall.  Rusev with a clothesline and Titus is down.  Rusev punches Titus and then turns it into a series of forearms.  Rusev with knees to the midsection followed by kicks in the corner.  Rusev with a reverse chin lock.  Titus with elbows but Rusev with a drop kick.  Rusev kicks Titus in the ribs and then he follows with punches.  Rusev with an Irish whip and he runs into an elbow.  Titus with chops and a shoudler tackle.

Titus with a clothesline but he misses a boot when Rusev moves out of the way and he goes to the floor.  Rusev wants his title belt and he tells Lana they are done.  He sees Titus running around the ring so he goes for a clothesline at the same time Titus does and they are both down.  Titus sends Rusev into Yeatonville and then Titus gets back into the ring before the ten count, but Rusev does not.

Winner:  Titus O'Neil (by count out)

We go to commercial.

We are in the back and Stephanie is on the phone.  We see Korporate Kane and he wants a few minutes.  He thanks Stephanie for taking some time and he wants a shot to try to run Smackdown.  He says Shane could not get over the issues in the past.  She says that she will run Smackdown.

Miz and Maryse are in the back and Miz and Maryse want to know where the red carpet and press are for their return from filming Marine 5. 

Stephanie says that is only for theatrical releases.

Kane says he has dabbled in acting and his latest movie is available on DVD.

Miz says that you cannot compare their movies.

Kane says if he was in Smackdown, he says he would not be happy with his Intercontinental champion since it is in the rulebook that a champion needs to defend every 30 days.  He says Miz should defend the title.

Stephanie likes the idea and Miz will be defending his Intercontinental Title.

Miz asks who is his opponent and Stephanie says it is a cliffhanger.

We go to commercial.
