Enzo’s wearing a Vegas-themed outfit. Enzo and Cass do their usual shtick on their entrance. Loud reaction for Enzo and Cass. New Day compare Enzo and Cass to Han Solo and Chewbacca, as well as The Vaudevillains to the Monopoly men in their pre-match promo. Woods says they will show why they are “The Elite” team in this industry, an obvious dig at Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks, The Elite in New Japan, who have been going back-and-forth with New Day throughout this year on social media.

Midnight Hour on Anderson by New Day.

Kofi pins English to retain the titles.

Winners and STILL WWE Tag Team Champions: New Day by pinfall

New Day celebrate their title retention after as we see highlights of all the carnage in this match.

Super-fun opener with a real hot, frenetic pace to it. New Day retaining is the right call as there is no reason to take the titles off them anytime soon with their immense popularity. Vaudevillains eating the pin was also the right call as they are low team on the totem pole currently. Enzo and Cass and The Club lost nothing in defeat. Loved this, nice way to kick-off the PPV proper.

Backstage promo with Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho and Alberto Del Rio all bickering about who is gonna win the Money in the Bank Ladder Match later on tonight.

Solid match, Corbin put on a very good performance, in spite of the Vegas crowd chanting “Boring” during it. Ziggler is another gatekeeper at this point in his WWE tenure, but he did a good job again at making Corbin look great. I liked this.

Charlotte and Dana celebrate their win after. Lynch helps Natalya up, but Natalya attacks Lynch and leaves her lying. Natalya leaves the ring very upset.

Run-of-the-mill tag match here. Ever since Extreme Rules, the Women’s Division has been put on ice for no real good reason. This did nothing, other than the post-match angle with Lynch and Natalya, to thaw it out. For a division that looked so promising after Wrestlemania, it unfortunately looks like we are right back where we started one year ago before the “Divas Revolution” began. Almost as if someone put the kabosh on the division becoming too popular or something, can you say Knockouts Division 2009?

Winner: Apollo Crews by pinfall (Crucifix)

Crews celebrates after while Sheamus can’t believe he lost.

Decent match with a fun flash-pin ending with Sheamus being surprised by the upstart Crews. Nothing more to it that, it was fine.

We see Roman Reigns preparing backstage.

Styles celebrates his win after.

Great match with an unneeded cheap finish with the Club interfering to give Styles the win, while protecting Cena at the same time. Cena is beyond protection at this point, so doing the ending that way doesn’t help Styles in the slightest. Shame such a masterful performance by both men had to be tarnished by timid booking.

Winner and NEW WWE World Champion: Dean Ambrose by pinfall (Dirty Deeds)

Ambrose celebrates his title win afterwards as the show closes.

WOW, what a way to end the show. First off, great main event between Reigns and Rollins. Secondly, I really feel like the Ambrose cash-in and title win was a complete and utter audible called on the fly due to the Cleveland Cavs winning the NBA Title an hour or so ago, since Ambrose is from Cleveland. Even if that is or isn’t the case, tonight was about the resurrection of Dean Ambrose as a player in this company and it was an amazing success. Looks like it’ll be a Shield three-way at either Battleground or even Summerslam and tonight’s proceedings allow for it to have some true meaning. Reigns looks to get his belt back, Rollins wanting to avenge being given the ultimate payback by Ambrose, Ambrose wanting to prove that the title win wasn’t a fluke and all three of them wanting to show who the best member of the Shield is. It writes itself. Phenomenal ending to a damn good show. Go watch the replay, NOW!

MOTN: Reigns vs. Rollins

MVP: Dean Ambrose

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?


WWE Raw Logo


Raw opens with all the superstars on the stage for a moment of silence for the victims of the attacks in Orlando.



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.


Enzo and Cass interupt


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- 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.

Woods- No…

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!

VaudeVillains interrupt.

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.


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!

Ambrose Asylum

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?

Seth- What?

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.

Winner: Paige

Charlotte is furious and tells Dana to get her title.

Contract Signing

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.

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.

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!

Before the match can start Ambrose attacked Jericho when he was doing his pose and stole his jacket in the dark.  Ambrose did the Jericho pose in the dark and it wasn’t until the lights went back on that we could see it was actually Dean.  Ambrose plays with the lights on the jacket as Jericho yells at Ambrose from the ramp.  Ambrose starts to tear the jacket and Jericho yells that it’s worth $15,000.  Jericho runs in to save his jacket but Ambrose takes him out.  Ambrose hammers away at Chris and then puts him in the corner and pounds away at Jericho with mroe right hands.  Jericho manages to slide out of the ring with his jacket and calls Ambrose an idiot.  Jericho tries to get out of there, but Big Cass cuts him off.  Jericho slaps Big Cass and Cass goes crazy.  He grabs Jericho and throws him HARD into the barricade then throws him into the ring where Ambrose is waiting with a Dirty Deeds!  Ambrose takes out some scissors and cuts up Jericho’s jacket.

Backstage Shane and Stephanie are watching.  Shane tells Steph her new attitude is welcomed.  Shane says he has to take a call and walks out of frame.  Steph holds up the picture of Shane and Vince and smiles sincerely.
