WWE RAW REPORT: A US OPEN CHALLENGE MATCH TO REMEMBER, WRESTLING RETURNS IN HOUR TWO, ARE YOU A BRANDON OR DYLAN SUPPORTER?, SETH GIVES THE AUTHORITY GIFTS, AND MORE

We begin with a look back at a very special episode of Raw from last night when Seth Rollins realized that his attitude hurt the ones he loves so much. However, there was a bigger obstacle to his happiness . . . Brock Lesnar was on Raw. At the end of the night, Seth had his ‘family’ back and Brock Lesnar was on his back.

We are in Washington, D.C. and your announcers are Michael Cole, John Layfield, and Byron Saxton.

Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring and he is accompanied by Joey Mercury, Jamie Noble, and Kane.

Seth welcomes everyone to Monday Night Rollins. He says they are live from Washington D.C. It is a city obsessed with power. Not a single person in this arena has any idea what true power is. Nor do they know how to obtain true power. You do it by doing things no other person is capable of doing. You do something that Roman Reigns could not do at Wrestlemania. You do something that John Cena couldn’t do if his life depended on it. You do something that the Undertaker couldn’t do in a match that changed the WWE forever. You obtain true power by taking it. He took power when he conquered the conqueror.

Seth says he is talking about Paul Heyman’s client . . . the Beast Brock Lesnar. He conquered him last week. He went to Suplex City and he burned it to the ground. If you are waiting for Brock to show up tonight, he has some bad news because that is not going to happen.

Brock is as far away as you can get. Brock is getting on a plane to Japan now. Seth says he hopes that every second of that eighteen hour flight, he is thinking about what happened to him last week . . . after he injured his friend and mentor Jamie Noble. He picked up Jamie Noble and ran him into that there barricade and broke three of Jamie’s ribs. Jamie Noble is tougher than every single person in this arena.

There is not a chance that Jamie Noble would have missed their moment of triumph. Seth wants everyone to get up and show Jamie the appreciation he deserves. The Slammy Award for Most Inspirational Moment has been locked up already. He says Jamie, Joey, and Kane helped him slay the beast.

Seth says he has a gift for them . . . brand new Apple watches. You are always a step ahead of everyone. You look so good. Now you can be a step ahead in style.

Seth asks Jamie what he thinks. Jamie says this is incredible. They are going to take their first group selfie. He says no one got an Apple Watch for being faithful.

Seth tells Kane he has something special for him. You debuted at Hell in a Cell in 1997 and you ripped off the cage. Things have changed. Bill Clinton was the President, the internet was on dial up, and Paul Heyman was a fat, lazy, rotten, filthy piece of crap . . . so not much has changed. For the last 17 years, you have been the glue that has held the WWE together.

You never asked for anything, so he is bestowing himself on Kane, his very first vacation. Seth tells Kane that he is sending him on a majestic getaway to Hawaii. Seth asks Kane how stoked is he about this. Kane says this is the nicest thing that has happened to him.

Kane says he has always wanted to sit on the beach and debate which animal he would throw into a live volcano and he can thank Seth for that.

Seth says they should team up tonight to destroy Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose in a no disqualification main event for the ages before you go on your vacation. Seth says there is more. He saw the saddest thing a few weeks ago. He saw J&J arrive at the building in a crappy rental car. His boys travel in style because nobody reeks of style like J&J.

Seth unveils a new Cadillac and he tells them to go into the car.

Seth says he represents the best things in life, just like this 2015 Cadillac CTS.

Big Show comes out and he makes his way to the ring for his match, but Show does not get a present for being loyal at one point.
