Hello everyone and welcome back to Monday Night Raw! Tonight is the go-home edition of Raw before Money in the Bank! We here at Wrestling News World also want to send out our deepest condolences to the victims of the shooting in Orlando this weekend, and to the LGBT community at large. This was a terrible, terrible tragedy and I hope that the world gathers together to spread love after this and not try to use it to their personal agendas.
Question of the Week: If you could give any NXT superstar a “re-debut” or a restart on the main roster who would it be and why?
Raw opens with all the superstars on the stage for a moment of silence for the victims of the attacks in Orlando.
AWWWW NEW ORLEANS! DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR!
Kofi- Wooooo. This Sunday at Money in the Bank only on the WWE Network the New Day will defend our WWE World Tag Team Championships! Against not one, oh no! Not two, oh no! But three other teams! But who are these other teams!?
Woods and Big E stare down at Kofi’s sneakers.
Kofi- You’re not who-ing, this is where we who.
Woods- Why are you wearing these old people shoes?
Kofi- Nah, these are the Steph Curry shoes. These are hot in the streets right now.
E- What streets?! Connecticut?
Kofi- I mean those are some hot streets.
E- You got on orthopezes.
Woods- The “I’ve fallen and can’t get up 12’s”
E- The Shuffleboard 6’s
Kofi- Look I don’t care what you say, what anyone says these shoes are fire baby! I’m a shoe guy. Regardless of our shoes, at Money in the Bank we will walk out with these titles around our waists? Why BECAUUUSE.
E- NEW DAY ROCKS!–
Enzo and Cass interupt
Enzo- MY NAME IS ENZO AMORE AND I AM A CERTIFIED G AND A BONAFIDE STUD AND YOU CAN’T TEACH THAT! AND THIS RIGHT HERE IS BIG CASS AND HE’S 7 FOOT TALL AND YOU CAN’T TEACH THAT! BADA BOOM REALIST GUYS IN THE ROOM HOW YOU DOIN!?
Woods- We’re good actually.
Cass- This Sunday at Money in the Bank me and Zo have our first chance at the Tag Team Championships and we are going to Vegas, we’re going all in, and we’re walking out with the titles. We all cool, we cool with everything you’ve been doing. Your unicorns, your cereal, your massagers for “her pleasure” sticking out of your foreheads.
New Day- Yup. Yup. Yup.
Cass- But if we’re gonna be teaming up tonight I’ve got one question….Kofi are you serious with those Jerry Seinfeld shoes you got on?!
Woods and E- OOHHH HE GOT YOU HE GOT YOU!
Woods- Correction it’s the I have a Bass Pro Shop Membership card 9s.
Kofi- Respect your veteran! Respect the shoes!
Cass- He’s right let’s talk about something else, let’s talk about Franny. Your girl Franchesca 2, is your girl right. Where was she last night. Last night she was with Enzo.
Cass- And Enzo had his lips ALL over her!
Enzo- You wanna talk about Franny there. Franky. Franny. Last night we might have been in New Orleans but she’s no Saint. I had Franny out on Bourbon Street, I was pouring bourbon down her lip piece. What a wonderful world and I was playing with her like Louie Armstrong. Enzo had her going ALL NIGHT LONG!
Woods- I am the only one who blows my girl!
Kofi- And now the moment we’ve all been waiting for. The verbal jousting between Enzo and Cass and the New Day! Let’s go!
Gotch- If the children’s section of the ring will fall silent for a moment…
English- That’s you morons.
Gotch- Only real men who represent a bygone era can provide this city true entertainment.
English- You see, IT’S A NEW ERA AND THE NEW TAG CHAMPS WILL BEEEE THE GREATEST TEAM THERE IS IN WWE (he sang this all).
Gallow and Anderson interrupt.
Anderson- All of you shut up! What is this camp WWE’s annual talent show? Listen playtime is over boys.
Gallows- We hate to be the fun police, wait no we don’t. This Sunday there will only be one team with those titles in the air and that’ll be us. Based on this showing it’ll be easier than scoring on the New Orleans Saints.
Cass- Since we’re in the Big Easy, I’m gonna make this real easy. You 4 there is only one word to describe you and I’m gonna spell it out for you! S-A-W-F-T!

Winners: Gallows and Anderson & The VaudeVillains
Backstage Shane walks into the office with Steph. They argue about who should run Smackdown when Corporate Kane walks in and says he should run Smackdown. He gives them a resume and letter of recommendation from The Undertaker.
Backstage Ryder is telling people about how Crews blindsided Sheamus on Smackdown. Sheamus walks up and asks him if he thought it was funny. When Ryder says he did Sheamus tells him he won’t be laughing after their match tonight.
Titus O’Neil makes his way down for a match but Rusev blasts him from behind as he’s coming down the ramp. Rusev slams him into the ramp and throws him around the ramp area. Rusev locks in the Accolade on the ramp until a group of refs run out to pull him off. Rusev holds up his title over Titus.
Dean- Back by popular demand, ladies and gentlemen the Ambrose Asylum! Now they say WrestleMania only happens once or year so I don’t know if I hit a time warp or something but this Sunday feels like another WrestleMania. We have two matches that could easily main event WrestleMania. Two years in the making, Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns. A lot of questions will be answered this Sunday. Can Cena hang with the new era? Will Charlotte ever be the same without her dad? What does Chris Jericho sound like falling off a ladder? Who is better Seth or Roman? My first guest, the scum of the Earth, Seth Rollins. *Seth enters* And the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns. *Roman enters*
Dean- This is great huh? This is fun. Let’s get down to it, it’s a talk show so I have to talk. It’s a good deal. Seth you suffered a devastating knee injury. Seth…how’s the knee?
Seth- Have you not watched my special on the WWE Network? I’ll take that as a no. My knee is 100% ready to go.
Dean- Good. Good. What about your face does it hurt?
Dean- Cause it’s killing me! Falls for it every time. How about you Roman, how’s the big easy treating you? *boos*
Roman- Good, mixed tonight but it was better last night on Bourbon Street.
Dean- What about you Seth, have some margaritas? I know they give you a headache. Come on sourpuss it’s a talk show, relax! No one is trying to jump out of a christmas box and beat you up, chill! Smile! Have fun! We all haven’t been in the ring together in how long? We had so much fun back then!
Seth- I’m not a party pooper. We did have some good times! I mean, New Orleans. Superdome, we took out those old bogies the New Age Outlaws at WrestleMania. What about London, the Helicopter and wrestled The Undertaker and Team Hell No. Roman, Oos, remember Japan that sushi tray that went all around. We did have some good times. What about when we found Ambrose unconscious by that dumpster. Where was that, Oklahoma? The best times I ever had in this ring were with you guys. We won titles together, traveled the world together. The 6 man tags were legendary. Or the matches against Wyatt family. How about Evolution? We sent big Batista packing. If you think about it, Dave owes us because now he’s a big movie star. For real though, the best time I ever had in a ring with you guys was when I took a chair and put it in your back. Dean I know you weren’t there, but at WrestleMania when I stole your moment and cashed in my Money in the Bank contract and became the first memeber of the Shield to become WWE Champion.
Dean- HAHAHAHA! Yeah. Well let’s keep things on track. Roman, what can we expect at Money in the Bank.
Roman- Big dog walks in as champ and walks out as champ.
Dean- I think it’s funny because Seth here thinks he’s the rightful champion. Isn’t that right, Seth?
Seth- Did he ever beat me for that Championship?
Dean- Ok I know I didn’t really explain the runs, but it’s my show I ask the questions. Roman how do you feel about that.
Roman- If you’re the rightful champion why do I have this?
Dean- I JUST explained to Seth, my show I ask the questions. Kinda my deal. Seth, why does he have this.
Seth- He’s got that because my knee caved out from carrying this company for all of last year. While I was gone, he earned it. At Survivor Series, he beat you Dean. At WrestleMania he beat the Game Triple H. So yeah, he earned it. One thing you haven’t done is beat ME. Because you CAN’T beat me, because I’m better than you. I’m two steps ahead! We are a lot alike, but there is one big difference. You wouldn’t have that without me. I created the Shield. If I hadn’t hurt myself, you wouldn’t have had the chance. I earned everything own my own! At Money in the Bank I will win back my title on my own!
Dean- On your own. Ok so no J & J security? No Authority, Corporate Kane, Army, Navy?
Roman- No he’s right he did it on his own. He broke up the Shield on his own, he screwed us over on his own. You didn’t just break up a group you broke up a brotherhood. We were your boys, your friends, we had your back. The only ones who had your back! For what? Limelight? You wanna be the man, run around here saying you’re the man. You’ll have the spotlight Sunday, and after Sunday they’ll call me THE guy not because I’m the champ but because I beat YOU.
Dean- There you have it, this Sunday World Heavyweight Championship on the light. The question is who walks out as champion? Seth Rollins? Or Roman Reigns? The Guy. Who is it gonna be? Or…or. What if I win the Money in the Bank Contract and whether it’s Seth or Roman…I cash in the same night and walk out as WWE World Heavyweight Champion!
Seth shoves Dean in Reigns and Ambrose fights back. Roman throws Dean off Seth and tries to attack but Seth counters. Dean attacks Seth again. Dean turns around and hits Dirty Deeds on Roman! Dean stands tall!
Dean is walking backstage and Steph joins him. She tells him he turned the show all about him. Dean tells her it was pretty cool. She tells him tonight he’ll face Chris Jericho. She asks him if all that hatred and poison in her veins is contagious? She tells him it can be good if you know how to use it.
Paige vs. Charlotte w/ Becky and Natty on commentary
Charlotte takes control but Paige fights back and hits a wicked running knee to the face of Charlotte. They exchange chops and Paige hits a Superkick and gets a 2 count. Paige shows some frustration. Charlotte rolls Paige in a small package and gets 2. Charlotte tries for her submission but can’t lock it in. Big boot from Charlotte. Charlotte tries again but Paige kicks Charlotte out of the ring. Dana runs up to protect her and rolls Charlotte back in the ring. Charlotte wasn’t ready and gets hit with the RamPaige for the win!
Charlotte is furious and tells Dana to get her title.
Backstage Renee asks Cesaro about Money in the Bank. Sami Zayn walks in and says he is just there because he figured Renee would want both sides of things since they’re wrestling each other tonight. Cesaro tells Sami he’s being extremely rude and this is just like Sami. Cesaro tells Sami he acts like a child. Sami tells him they’re in the same match tonight, they’re in the same match Sunday, as far as he’s concerned they are equals. Cesaro tells Sami he’s been in WWE for 4 years, Sami has been in WWE 4 months. Cesaro doesn’t see them as equals.
Charlotte is yelling at Dana for what she did. She tells her there is no room at the top for errors. She tells Dana they have some work to do before Sunday.
Zack Ryder vs. Sheamus
Sheamus is right on Zack Ryder with heavy blows. Sheamus connects with the 10 beats. Ryder hits a forearm for space and when Sheamus charges at him Ryder pulls down the top rope. Ryder hits a dropkick from the side of the ring onto Sheamus. Ryder hits the Broski Boot! And a second! Ryder goes to the top and Ryder hits the Elbro Drop! 2 count! Ryder signals the Rough Ryder but Sheamus ducks it and sends Ryder into the turnbuckle and then Sheamus hits the Brogue Kick for the win.
Sheamus continues the beatdown after the match but Crews runs out for the save. Crews sends Sheamus out of the ring and continues to attack him. Sheamus runs through the crowd to get away.
Backstage Shane is talking to Kane when Kevin Owens walks in. He says he doesn’t want to talk behind anyone’s back but Del Rio just showed up and he thinks that’s a little disrespectful to the company. Shane asks what Kevin suggests he do? Kevin suggests taking Del Rio out of the Money in the Bank match. Del Rio bursts in and says he knows it was Owens who told airport security he was a threat! Del Rio starts talking in Spanish. Owens asks Del Rio if he thinks he’s cool because he speaks another language and then reminds him he’s not the only one who can, and starts speaking in French. Kane yells over them and suggests that if he were in charge that he’d put them in a team building match tonight. Del Rio and Owens against the Lucha Dragons and if they lose then the Dragons take their spot at Money in the Bank. Shane thinks that’s a great idea and sets the match.
Cesaro vs. Sami Zayn
They lock up to start and Cesaro gets behind Zayn. Sami twists the arm but Cesaro does his flopping fish move. Sami out to the apron but flips over Cesaro to get back in and hits a hurricarana. 2 count. Headlock by Zayn. Sami leaps at Cesaro and it caught MIDAIR and slammed down. Sami goes for a springboard move but Cesaro hits an uppercut before he can get up and Sami crashes to the floor below. We head to break.
We return and Sami is trying to fight out of Cesaro’s control. Sami does and hits a crossbody off the middle rope. Cesaro fights back with an Uppercut and gets the Uppercut Train going. Cesaro goes for the swing but Sami fights out only for Cesaro to do a big jumping stomp! Sami gets up and hits a HUGE clothesline and Michinoku driver! Sami gets a 2 count. Sami goes up top but Cesaro hits a dropkick to knock Sami off. Cesaro runs up and hits a Suplex from the top rope over the ropes! Cesaro goes for the Neutralizer but Sami lands on his feet. Sami tries something of his own but Cesaro lands on his feet! Cesaro goes for a powerbomb but Sami flips it into a Sunset Flipping Powerbomb! 1-2-3!
Winner: Sami Zayn
Cena- We got a rowdy audience here in New Orleans tonight. This Sunday Money in the Bank might as well be WrestleMania. Money in the Bank contract on the line, Champion vs. A man who never lost the Championship, 2 living legends face off. You guys know I love WWE, I believe this is the top of sports entertainment. For whatever reason the decision makers told AJ Styles he didn’t belong here. That’s where I get respect for AJ. He went around the world and made a name for himself. I have won 15 World Championships here in WWE, he was won more outside WWE. He is the single greatest man to never wrestle in WWE. Then Shane McMahon comes in and says no we want that man! So the man in the WWE faces the man from around the world. Tonight we’re going to do this a little different, I talked to Shane McMahon, Michael Cole you might wanna get out of the ring it’s going to get a little messy in here. Now we just need Mr. AJ Styles.
AJ comes to the ring- For the past 2 weeks I have turned your world upside down. Speaking of the world they’re still talking about what I did to you last week. You know what John at Money in the Bank I’m gonna do it again. When that bell rings I’m going to run circles around you and I’ll be the one saying you can’t see me. Because you can’t BEAT me. Now where do I sign.
Cena- That depends on you. There are two contracts here. One that is John Cena vs. AJ Styles 1 on 1. Another contract that is AJ Styles and the Club vs. John Cena.
AJ- What do you mean?
Cena- One contract is 15 years of what if is answered. If you fight with the Club I will go out and fight my very best and you’ll win. You’ll win and secure that you’re captain of the bitch club. Or you could sign this one and bring back the electricity we had the first time! Finally can the underdog slay the giant. You sign this, we get a real answer to What If?
AJ- I see what you’re doing here John. You don’t think I can beat you 1 on 1. Is it because you’re a 15 time World Champion. Because you won the Royal Rumble twice. OR because you’re the face that runs the place. You wanna talk about what ifs. What if I was here 15 years ago? I’ll tell you, you wouldn’t be a 15 time world champion, you wouldn’t have won the Royal Rumble twice, you wouldn’t be on crappy tv shows and in crappy movies, you wouldn’t be the face that runs the place!
Cena- SHUT UP! Enough man! Your club isn’t full of bullets it’s full of bull! I give you a chance and you whine and complain like every other indy guy who thinks they could’ve if they had the chance. You’ve got that chance right now, so sign it and prove me wrong. Or sign the other one and prove that you don’t need a bullet train back to Japan where you left your balls!
AJ signs the contract with no Club help- You’re gonna find out I’m not every other independent worker. Maybe you’ll get the message your time is up and my time is now.
Kevin Owens and Alberto Del Rio vs. The Lucha Dragons whichever team wins gets a spot at MITB
The match starts with Del Rio attacking Kalisto. Kevin yells at him to listen to the ref because he doesn’t want to get disqualified. ADR tags Owens in aggressively. Kevin tries to do a move but ADR tags himself back in immediately. Owens starts to walk out, but then when Del Rio almost gets pin Owens runs in. Del Rio and Owens argue and both get dropkicked out of the ring.
We return from break and Del Rio is in control of Kalisto. Kevin Owens tags in and takes down Kalisto. Del Rio tags himself in. Owens is pissed and shoves Del Rio. Kalisto kicks Del Rio into Owens.

Owens tags himself in and goes for the Pop Up Powerbomb but Sin Cara reverses it into a crossbody. Sin Cara with a springboard back elbow and a springboard moonsault. Kalisto tries to take out Alberto on the outside but Del Rio counters and sends Kalisto into the barricade. In the ring Sin Cara gets hit with the Pop Up Powerbomb! Kevin Owens pins Sin Cara for the win!
Winners: Del Rio and Kevin Owens
After the match, Del Rio and Owens fight until Del Rio rolls out.
Backstage Owens catches up with Stephanie. He tells her that he heard Sami was going to be on commentary during the Ambrose/Jericho match. Steph asks who approved that and Kevin tells her Shane did. Owens thinks he should get to be on commentary, too. Steph agrees and says Owens can be on commentary. Del Rio interrupts and says that he should get to be out there, too! Steph says he can be the guest timekeeper.
Steph walks into her shared office with Shane. He tells her she’s just trying to one-up her. He then makes Cesaro guest ring announcer for the main event. They argue and talk about Corporate Kane, who walks in. Kane says they aren’t going to make him GM of Smackdown are they? They tell him no. Kane asks Shane if it’s about the whole car battery to the testicles thing? Shane says it didn’t help his case. Shane tells Steph he’s going to keep co-running Raw AND run Smackdown. Steph tells him she doesn’t think so.

According to WWE website and also their Twitter handle @wwe, AJ Styles vs John Cena is set for the Money in the Bank Pay Per View/Special Event on Sunday 6/19.
For many years, this has been a dream match and it will finally happen on Father’s Day 6/19. I doubt WWE will mention TNA in anyway. WWE will most likely highlight Styles time in New Japan.
Hey, can this be a preview for the Smackdown Heavyweight Championship?
You never know.

Monday Night Raw
Looks like this week is going to kick off with the first ever Undisputed WWE Champion, Chris Jericho!
Chris- Shut your mouth and listen to me, my guest on the highlight reel was supposed to be Dean Ambrose, but he’s not here because of me. He suffered whiplash, a bulging disc because of me. He’s not gonna be here tonight and in the WWE possibly for a while because of me. I’ve got the next best thing right here, the remains of Mitch the potted plant. The similarities between the two are uncanny. Ambrose came here to entertain you fans but like Mitch underestimated the unstoppable force that is Chris Jericho. Like Mitch, Dean Ambrose is broke and beaten. You know what the worst thing is? I seriously injure Dean Ambrose and what do you barbarians do? You tweet about Mitch. Isn’t it fun! To talk about Mitch. Dean Ambrose was in the hospital screaming in pain, it’s not funny! You like Mitch because he’s more interesting than Ambrose, he has more worth to the WWE. I could glue him together and sell him for 12 bucks and he’d be worth more. I understand why you relate to Ambrose because he’s a loser just like you. He’s a slob, an everyman just like you. I can’t relate to that because I’m a legend, the superstar of superstars, the Haley’s Comet of WWE. You can talk about the new era but I know what you really want, I’m going to give you what you crave, the gift of Jericho. Drink it in, man. Furthermore–
Jericho is cut off by Enzo and Cass’ music. Big Cass comes out alone as Enzo is still recovering.
Cass- This is the gift of Jericho, if you ever hand me this as a gift you better give me the receipt so I can return it. How you doin’? I know exactly who you are, one of the greatest of all time. I don’t think you know what the new era is all about. We have arrived isn’t a statement, it’s a warning. I have arrived! Right now you’re standing in MY way. You better get OUT of my way or I will run through you.
Jericho- Really? You’re gonna run through me? Why don’t you run to the hospital to check on your buddy Enzo? I hear he’s in the same room as Dean Ambrose.
Cass- We don’t run in the new era Chris, we stand and fight.
Jericho- Have you forgotten I am the best in –Big Cass puts his hand over the mic and lowers it–
Cass- You might be the best at what you do, but I’m 7 foot tall and you can’t teach that.
Jericho- You wanna fight?! You wanna fight!? *Jericho takes off his jacket but then walks away*
Cass- That proves that there is just ONE WORD to describe you and I’m gonna SPELL IT OUT! S-A-W-F-T! SAAAWFFFTTT!!
Jericho runs back at Cass but eats a big boot from Cass.
Jericho walks up to Stephanie and complains about the lack of respect from the new era. Jericho says Steph is the smart McMahon, so she and he need to stop the new era together. Steph says it is Shane’s fault but here’s the problem he’s doing everything right. If Jericho wants to stop the new era he can do it tonight when he faces the 7 foot tall Big Cass. She tells Jericho to never try to drive a wedge between her and Shane …again.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Baron Corbin
Ziggler gets behind Corbin, but Corbin backs him in the corner and attacks with elbows until Dolph releases. Corbin shoves Ziggler and talks smack but Dolph fights back and sends Corbin outside the ring. Ziggler tries to follow but eats a big knee. Dolph sends Corbin over the barricade and gets back in the ring as we go to commercial.
We return and Ziggler is fighting out of a chinlock. Ziggler hits a running clothesline and another. Big splash in the corner and into a neckbreaker from Ziggler. Standing elbow drop from Dolph but he is sent into the corner face first and then Corbin follows it with a shot to the back of the head. Ziggler plays possum and hits a fameasser! Only a 2 count. Ziggler runs into a HUGE deep 6. Ziggler barely kicks out before the 3 count. Ziggler tries to roll up Corbin but only gets 2. Ziggler gets dropped into the top turnbuckle and hit with End of Days for the win.
Winner: Baron Corbin
Charlotte and Ric join Shane backstage. Ric congratulates Shane on his match at WrestleMania and getting to run Raw. Charlotte says she doesn’t think it was fair for Steph to ban Ric from ringside. Shane says Stephanie’s decision to ban Ric at Extreme Rules and adds that Ric will be banned from Charlotte’s match tonight, too.
Jojo is with AJ, Gallows and Anderson. AJ says last week he was powerbombed through a table. He had the chance to obliterate Roman with a steel chair and look how he was repaid. He missed his chance, but he won’t go easy next chance he gets. He said in the past he doesn’t need his friends to help him win, but tonight is a tag team match and the club is back!
Fandango vs. R-Truth
They lock up and Truth eats a shoulder tackle. Fandango goes for a punch but Truth dances to stop him. Truth puts Fandango in the corner and punches away at Fandango but gets dumped out of the ring. Fandango goes out and rolls Truth back in. Fandango locks a chinlock in. Truth fights out but gets hit with a big dropkick. Fandango dances and Goldust gets on the ring side and dances, too. Breeze gets up on the side, too, and Truth uses the distraction to roll up Fandango for the win.
Kevin Owens, Miz, Maryse and Cesaro are backstage are arguing all at the same time to Steph and Shane. Miz is complaining about the Triple Threat Intercontinental Championship. Sami Zayn walks in and says he’s right, it should be a fatal four way. He says that everyone saw how the fans reacted when he held up the Intercontinental Championship last week. Shane and Steph tell Sami that’s true, but the new era is about earning things. Sami says that is fine and he’s willing to face the Miz 1 on 1. If he wins, he’s in and if he loses he’ll gladly walk away. Steph is sold and makes the match.
Paige vs. Charlotte. Ric Flair is banned.

For a more in depth analysis, give it a listen while on your commute,
walk, treadmill whatever.
Here are my quick predictions for tonight.
WWE United States Championship
Kalisto (c) vs Ryback
Ryback gets yet another restart and they try to push him by winning theUnited States Championship. Have to admit, I miss the US Open Challenge with Cena defending it weekly. I am just saying.
Baron Corbin vs Dolph Ziggler
Baron has a great presentation. Still a bit green to me. However, I like him winning the Andre the Giant Battle Royal. If anyone could have used rub for winning it, it is him. He will also go over on Ziggler tonight to continue his push/introduction onto the main roster.
Finals for # 1 Contender ship for the WWE Tag Team Championship
Vaudevillians vs Enzo & Cass
As I mentioned in my podcast this week, Enzo & Cass do not need the # 1contender ship right now. They are so over and entertaining that as long as they are healthy, their time will come. It just will not be tonight. Winners Vaudevillians.
WWE Women’s Championship
Charlotte (c) vs Natayla
Sasha Banks just felt right to win the Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 32. However, WWE I feel is saving Sasha Banks moment for SummerSlam at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY this summer. I still feel Sasha or Becky should be in the mix. However, Natayla has been so patient these past few years. She deserves at least one PPV or special event to be the featured women’s bout. Despite Bret Hart at ringside, Charlotte still retains.
Chris Jericho vs Dean Ambrose
Important match for Ambrose after taking the pin at Fastlane, losing to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. Ambrose needs this match in order for him to regain momentum and hopefully continue to work at the main event level. Ambrose wins this bout.
Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens
This rivalry dates back to NXT, ROH etc. With Extreme Rules being 3 weeks away, I see Kevin Owens winning this bout. In addition, I see some type of extreme stipulation added at Extreme Rules. Great rivalry for both men. I do feel with Owens losing IC title at WrestleMania, he needs this win more. Same as Ambrose, Owens needs this win to reestablish momentum.
The Decision Vince McMahon announcing who will run Monday Night Raw
Stephanie McMahon/Triple H or Shane McMahon?
I don’t see a brand split happening. However, I do see some type of compromise with Shane running Raw and Stephanie/Triple H running Smackdown. WWE wants Raw/Smackdown (I think ) to be 1A & 1B. With smackdown being taped, it is tough to do that. I said even if you alternate live/taped, it would be a better product (talking smackdown). The decision will be a segment we are all looking forward to.
WWE Intercontinental Championship
The Miz (c) with Maryse vs Cesaro
I’ve been saying this since day one #PushCesaro The US Open Challenge matches with John Cena & also matches with Kevin Owens proved that he belongs in the main event. During Austin’s podcast he asked McMahon (paraphrasing) why Cesaro hasn’t been pushed. McMahon responded that he hasn’t grabbed brass ring. with this Jason Staham/Transporter/James Bond Intro, sky is the limit for Cesaro. With Maryse in the picture now, I don’t see Miz losing the championship until at least Money in the Bank or Battleground. The Miz retains title.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Roman Reigns (c) vs AJ Styles
I was shocked when AJ Styles won the right to fight Roman Reigns on rae the night after WrestleMania 32. I don’t care what anybody says, he has paid his due over the past 12-13 years. TNA, New Japan (and I am not including other independent federations internationally). However, WWE has invested heavily in Roman Reigns. With the arrival of Anderson & Gallows, Balor losing the NXT Title, rumor of Seth Rollins returning tonight, it makes the main event even more interesting to watch. We don’t know if Anderson & Gallows will turn on AJ or if this is all one big plot with AJ to start again some type of Bullet Club in the WWE. Will Balor interfere? Will Seth Rollins interfere. Rollins never lost the championship. I read somewhere that perhaps he can bring in another championship and we can have a unification match down the line. So many possibilities or angles WWE can go in. No matter what, Roman Reigns walks out champion. I’d be shocked if Reigns has a one month reign.
Hope you enjoyed the quick read. Listen to Choked Out Radio !
Enjoy Payback !

That’s right I was born right here! These are my people! And by listening to them I think they’re not naturally from here.
Shane- Boy you really know how to take the air outta the room. That’s not surprising, I knew you or your husband would be rearing your important heads.
Steph- Important is the right word. In fact I was on the phone all week with politicians with Hartford’s favorite daughter. They wanted to give me a statue or a day or something. I’m out here to tell you something important, this is your last night running Monday Night Raw. This Sunday at Payback our father, Vincent Kennedy McMahon. ~No chants~ will decide once and for all who is running Monday Night Raw. ~Shane O’Mac chants~

Steph- Well thank goodness our father is smart enough not to listen to these people.
Shane- I’m here because of them, so obviously he’s listening.
Steph- In 6 days, I have it on good authority that things won’t go your way.
Shane- I think it’s time you go on your way. So I would politely ask “Hartford’s favorite daughter” to head out of the ring.
Steph- I’m not going anywhere, I’m going to hang out right here in my ring. Eat your heart out people.
Shane- Sunday, whatever the decision is, it is. As for tonight, I’m still in charge so since you won’t politely leave…security please. See Steph I’m going to ask you to leave OUR ring.
Security comes out and the fans chant “Na na na na hey hey hey goodbye” as she leaves. One of the security guards touches her back and she smacks him hard. The other guards grab her and haul her out as she screams. Shane leads the fans in a heavier chant of “hey hey goodbye”

Even thought I make a surprisingly good talk show host, I’m not in the mood! This Sunday I face one of the best wrestlers to step into this ring, this Sunday I face a 6-time World Champion, this Sunday I face Chris Jericho. Jericho loves to say that he’s the best in the world at what he does, and he likes to say it a lot. Over the last couple of months, he’s made a good case for himself, but I’m pretty good at what I do, too! I fight for respect and earn respect! I don’t do that either! Jericho likes to complain that things aren’t handed to him and that’s not me either, I get to work, I roll up my sleeves and I make things happen. From when I clock in to when I clock out, I either punch people in the face or get punched in the face because that is what I do! I thought I’d show Chris a little of what I do, so Chris lace up your scarf and turn on your Christmas tree jacket and get out here!
Jericho comes out looking confused- You disrespectful stupid idiot. How dare you call me out, first of all there is no way I’m fighting you in a dump like this. Oh yeah it’s a dump! Shut up! Have you forgotten who you’re dealing with? I am the best in the world at what I do, do you understand what I’m saying to you right now? In case you’re like all these idiots and can’t get it through your brain, I win matches. I elevate every opponent I step in the ring with, you should be thanking me. At Sunday I’m going to give you the match of your career, just being in the ring with me boosts your career baby. In fact, you should get down on your knees and kiss my boots right now. On second thought don’t, I want you right now to apologize to me. You heard what I said, look at me while I’m talking to you idiot, apologize to me for disrespecting me right now! Apologize now! Or you’re going to be very sorry.
Jericho- Do it now idiot!
Dean- I’m sorry. Chris, I am sorry that you paid so much money for those ugly ass shoes. Chris I’m sorry you’re walking everywhere with a scarf. I’m sorry about your Bon Jovi haircut. I’m sorry I’m gonna beat your ass at Payback. But I’m not sorry about this!

Miz and Maryse are in the ring.
Maryse- Now help me welcome my husband your Intercontinental Champion, the Miz!
Miz- Isn’t she gorgeous?! This Sunday at WWE Payback I will defend my championship against Cesaro. It has come to my attention through social media that you people think Cesaro will actually beat me. I’m appalled by this, not because I’m offended by you people, but what appalls me is you people not seeing the benefit in me being your Intercontinental Champion.
Mayse- Teach them! They are hungry for your knowledge.
Miz- And I am hungry for you! *kiss* If you understand anything, understand this. This is more than a title, more than an accomplishment, this is legendary. The greatest in our industry have held this title, Cesaro doesn’t deserve it. You make signs that say Cesaro section, do you think that makes you a rebel? It doesn’t. I bring this title prestige, but you think you’re empowered by making a sign. Don’t you think you’re better than that? Sit there with the nerdy, with the internet troll who pine for the Swiss Superman. This woman here is what the Miz section looks like. Need I say–*Cesaro’s music hits*
Cesaro- Miz did you just try and convince the fans to route for you? I think they’re way to educated for that?
Miz- Are you saying this to me?
Maryse- Babe, do it like you do it at home.
Miz- You talkin to me? You talkin to me? I’m the only one here. Funny how? Do I amuse you?
Cesaro- Actually you do, but the only movie you belong in is Jackass. You were right about one thing, that title is legendary and some of the best have held it, that’s why I’m going to make sure the credits roll on you being the Intercontinental Champion.
