Leave a comment

Raw opens with a look back at last week, when Samoa Joe choked Paul Heyman. Brock Lesnar’s music hits and The Beast makes his way to the ring, Heyman at his side.

Heyman says that he is here to unleash The Beast and make no mistake about it, this is Samoa Joe’s reckoning. He says last week he showed Joe respect, he even asked for permission to enter the ring. But like a shark, Joe lured him in and took him down.

Joe says if that were an old beef that needed settled, they’d both understand that. But that’s not what this was, Joe kicked down the door of Brock’s house, put his hands on Brock’s guy and now The Beast is angry. Heyman says he feels he was fooled that Joe was the worst-case scenario,someone who could give Brock a fight, but that’s not who Joe is. Heyman asks how many Samoans have been in this business and all of their achievements. He notes that they are all related and proud of each other, meanwhile Samoa Joe is not a part of the family. They don’t want anything to do with him. Heyman calls Joe a dog, a mutt. He says the defining moment of his career so far was choking out Paul Heyman.

Paul says the Coquina Clutch was everything Joe promised it would be – he woke up a while later and immediately asked himself, what would happen if Joe slapped the Coquina Clutch on Lesnar? But then he remembered, Joe is a mutt, a punk, and he’ll never get it on Brock. Heyman starts shouting and Samoa Joe’s music hits and he stomps his way to the ring!

Brock waves Joe to enter the ring and they square-up. Joe barges Lesnar and knocks him down. They start brawling and Lesnar thrusts Joe into the corner and shoulders him. Kurt Angle brings security down but Lesnar and Joe take them out. Joe hits Brock with a takedown but he gets back to his feet and out comes the locker room to separate them.

Both guys are being held back by superstars and then Joe breaks free and kicks Brock in the face! Joe is dragged from the ring and Brock loses his mind, chases Joe out and starts battering him with forearms until both of them are pulled back again. Joe is dragged up the ramp as the fans chant “this is awesome!”

Later tonight, The Hardy Boyz Vs. Sheamus & Cesaro in a 2-Out-Of-3-Falls match for the Tag Team Titles.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Elias Samson sitting in the ring with his guitar. Samson introduces himself and gets booed to high Heaven. Samson sings about Louisiana being the laughing stock of the USA before criticising Dean Ambrose. A few seconds later Ambrose interrupts.

Dean Ambrose Vs. Elias Samson

Samson and Dean participate in a shoving match right off the bat. They lock up again, and Ambrose applies a hammerlock. Samson backs him into the ropes to break the hold. Samson punches him and whips him to the corner. Ambrose takes to the ropes and hits a spinning back elbow and Samson is sent reeling from the ring.

*Commercial Break*

We come back from the break to see Ambrose punch away at Samson before eating a clothesline. Samson picks up a two count. Samson punches and stomps him in the corner. Samson knees him in the midsection and talks some trash before applying the chin lock. Ambrose tries to get out, but Samson keeps him down.

Finally, Ambrose fights up and hits a back suplex. They both get up and trade chops. Ambrose hits the ropes, ducks a clothesline, and hits a pair of running forearms. Samson reverses a whip, but Ambrose answers with a clothesline. Ambrose follows up with a fisherman’s suplex for a near fall. Ambrose gets up and hits a running forearm in the corner. Samson pushes off a bulldog attempt and boots him in the face.

Ambrose pulls the top rope down to get him out of the ring. Ambrose then connects with a suicide dive. Ambrose goes to the top rope, but Samson cuts him off. Samson goes for a superplex, but Ambrose fights him off with head-butts.

The Miz runs down and distracts him. Samson rolls him up for a two count. Ambrose takes Samson down with a Lunatic Lariat. The Miz is surprised Ambrose is still in the match. Ambrose slowly gets out of the ring and approaches The Miz.

Miz begs him off and puts Maryse in front of him before running away. Ambrose catches him and sends him into the barricade. Ambrose yells at Maryse before scaring Miz back. Ambrose nearly got counted out. Samson drops a knee on the back of his neck and hits a rolling cutter for the win.

Winner: Elias Samson

The Miz and Maryse smile from the ramp at Ambrose as we head to commercial.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Goldust, who quotes The Godfather Part II. He says he got to R-Truth before he could get to him. He says nobody has ever understood him, maybe it’s because he’s a little too bizarre, or maybe it’s because he makes us feel uncomfortable. Ignorance can be beautiful. But like beauty, nothing lasts forever. Unless your golden. He tells R-Truth to buckle-up and says we haven’t seen anything yet. I’m enjoying the return of old-school Goldust.

The Miz and Maryse are walking backstage and Kurt Angle catches up to them. He asks why Miz interrupted Ambrose and Samson. Miz says that Dean is lucky that that’s all he did because he wants revenge for what happened last week. Miz says that maybe this all wouldn’t have happened if Kurt had been doing his job and not preoccupied with his personal problems. Miz tells Angle to do his job and do something about Dean Ambrose. Angle asks how Miz knew about his personal problems but doesn’t get an answer. Angle tells Miz never to talk to him like that again and says he won’t do anything about Ambrose, that Miz can figure it out for himself.

We get a hype video for the return of Cedric Alexander. We see Noam Dar backstage on the phone and he’s interrupted by Cedric. Alexander says he made it clear that he has moved on from Alicia Fox and Noam Dar. He doesn’t care about his ratchet ex-girlfriend. Alicia appears on FaceTime via Dar’s phone and she says she’s at home with a neck injury and it’ll make her feel better if Dar kicks Alexander’s face in. Alexander says this ends tonight and walks off.

*Commercial Break*

Dar’s FaceTime session with Foxy is shown on the tron during his entrance. She tells him to get revenge on Alexander, but won’t let him go to start the match as they keep talking in the corner.

Cedric Alexander Vs. Noam Dar

Eventually Dar does set the phone down but immediately Cedric comes up behind him and hits the Lumbar Check to get the quick win. Foxy is still on the phone yelling at Dar.

Winner: Cedric Alexander

Tonight’s main event will see The Hardy Boyz try to take back their titles from Sheamus and Cesaro in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match. Coming up next, we’ll hear from Bray Wyatt.

*Commercial Break*
