WWE RAW Results – May 15th, 2017

The show opens with a video package focusing on Braun Strowman trying to take out Roman Reigns after WWE Payback. Footage from last week in London is shown of Reigns confronting Strowman and going after his injured elbow.

The RAW opening hits. We go live inside the Prudential Center in New Jersey where a big display of pyro goes off. Michael Cole is the first to welcome us to the show.

RAW General Manager Kurt Angle opens the show and heads to the ring. Angle talks about Roman Reigns “settling the score” with Braun Strowman last week. He says Strowman suffered a shattered elbow, flew back to the United States and underwent surgery. Angle says Strowman may be out of action for up to six months. He notes that Strowman set his sights on the Universal Championship and asks who will now challenge Brock Lesnar for the championship. Angle gave it a lot of thought and it has to be earned, not given. He says at Extreme Rules for the first time ever, we will have a Fatal Five Way match and the winner will face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. Angle has given thought to who those five will be. He reveals the five: Seth Rollins, Samoa Joe, Finn Balor, Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns.

Angle promises Extreme Rules will be historical.

Here comes Roman Reigns to interrupt.

Angle stays in the ring as Reigns gets inside with a mic in hand. Very mixed reaction for Reigns in Newark tonight. Reigns says we don’t need a Fatal Five Way match because he is the No. 1 Contender. “This is my yard. I beat The Undertaker at WrestleMania. I put Strowman in that ambulance. And I’m the only guy around here that can beat Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship.” Finn Balor interrupts and has something to say.

Balor brings up he was the first ever Universal Champion. “Oh and I never lost my title,” adds Balor. He says if Reigns wants a “piece of the beast”, the line starts behind him. Reigns tells Balor he has a lot of heart, but he doesn’t have the killer instinct to beat Brock. Balor brings up beating Reigns during his first night on RAW.

Samoa Joe interrupts. He says Reigns and Balor have it wrong. Joe says it is about two things: actions and results. He talks about choking out Seth Rollins. Joe suggests he will win the Fatal Five Way match and will go on to face Brock Lesnar.

The lights go out. When they come back on, Bray Wyatt is standing in the middle of the ring and has a mic in hand. Wyatt says the beast is approaching and they are all really scared. “You will cower. You will fall. And you will run,” says Wyatt.

Here comes Seth Rollins. He says Extreme Rules is still many weeks away and that New Jersey didn’t come here for talking. Rollins says he came here to fight Samoa Joe. Rollins and Joe start brawling at the end of the ramp. Wyatt attacks Balor. Reigns tosses Wyatt out. Rollins works the left knee of Joe against the ropes. Joe limps up the ramp. Wyatt with a shot on Rollins sending him out of the ring. Reigns with a Superman to Wyatt. Rollins with right hands to Wyatt. Balor with a double dropkick to both Wyatt and Rollins at ringside. Balor goes up to the top turnbuckle, Reigns misses a Superman and Balor with a Sling Blade takedown. Reigns rolls out of the ring. Balor hits the ropes and dives over the top rope taking out both Reigns and Rollins at ringside.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    REIGNS!

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Oh Jesus…

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Let’s push all our feuds into one match and throw the big dog in the middle!

    • Bossman27

      Yea, not a good idea

  • Bossman27

    Not a bad way to start Raw. Sucks that Strowman won’t be facing Brock though

    • Kyle Barbosa

      He was neeeever facing Brock

      • Bossman27

        you would not have wanted to see that?

        • Kyle Barbosa

          Not really, the guy who can’t beat Zayn in 10 minutes, can’t beat Kalisto, and got beaten by Reigns, then injures himself by running through an ambulance door like a dumbass, vs the beast? Yea no, i’ll pass

          • Bossman27

            But you wanted to see a guy who lost to Cena in his return match and get punked out by a 50 year old man and take even longer than it should to beat that same 50 year old man? Or a dude who has been a jobber for years and was fired by the company fight a guy who got injured taking out the trash?

          • Kyle Barbosa

            Wait who are you referring to?

          • Bossman27

            In order: Lesnar, Jinder and Orton

          • Kyle Barbosa

            Lesnar losing to Cena was stupid, other than that though he’s been booked perfectly as a beast. Jinder I don’t agree with, I just find it funny. And Orton will always be my favorite wrestler after that message he wrote regarding the indies

          • Joshua Bosley

            Enjoy your 20 superkicks a match lmfao

          • Christopher Davis

            Lmfao that last comment

          • Kyle Barbosa

            Bossman is more of a face than you are

          • Amos Cheek

            Batman is a tweener though.Bossman is more of the wholesome Superman.Batman and Joker are to sides of the same coin.Superman and Joker are not.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            Bossman would not agree with being Roman Reigns

          • Bossman27

            Why am I Roman Reigns?

          • Kyle Barbosa

            He said you’d be superman

          • Bossman27

            Aw man, I don’t like Superman lol

          • Amos Cheek

          • Christopher Davis

            Iron man

          • Kyle Barbosa

            Nah, that requires a dick of steel, which we know Bossman doesn’t have

          • Bossman27

            How do you know that?

          • Kyle Barbosa

            I have my ways…

      • Christopher Davis

        • Kyle Barbosa

          See Chris, this is why nobody likes you

          • Christopher Davis

            What you mean so far its good lmao

          • Kyle Barbosa

            What’s been good about it? Angle came out, announced Raw has no direction, so all the feuds are getting pushed into one match with Reigns in between, also featuring the scary man, gay Balor, Rollins, and the floating potato head, and now we have a rematch from weeks ago nobody cares about

          • Amos Cheek

            It could for sure be worse.Better so far than the last few weeks.Especially last week.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Geeee I care sooooo much

  • Christopher Davis

    The fact that i know that rollins might win the fatal 5 way is no surprise since balor going against uncle bray bray and joe against reigns

    • Kyle Barbosa

      What do you mean “might”? He is winning it

      • Christopher Davis

        You right nvm

    • Amos Cheek

      Umm…..No.I think you got confused man

  • Kyle Barbosa

    So sheamus and Cesaro turn, and they’re still fucking jobbers

    • Christopher Davis

      I was expecting a cheat win tbh

  • Kyle Barbosa

    AND SHEAMUS AND CESARO ARE SOOOO MEAN, THEY ACCEPT DEFEAT AND JUST WALK AWAY. WOW! WHAT GREAT HEELS

  • Kyle Barbosa
