WWE Monday Night Raw Results – August 14 2018

[adace-ad id="652493"]

Big Cass’ comes out to new music and we have a shark cage dangling above the ring. Cass’ new music is better but still just super generic, the guys who get music from the main roster, as opposed to NXT, always have awful themes.

Big Cass starts to talk and gets boo’s from the crowd. Every time Cass tries to talk, the fans don’t let him. Big Cass keeps getting boo’d. He says he will just talk over them, he doesn’t care. He says he’s the man. When he talks, it matters. He says Enzo needs Big Show. Enzo is nothing if there’s no one behind him. He says does Big Show need Enzo to stay relevant? He says Big Show knows he can’t beat him without Enzo and that’s why Enzo will be locked inside a shark cage. He says he will show everyone that he is the best big man in the game.

Enzo’s music hits. He starts with his usual “My name is Enzo Amore” speech. A loud “How you doing” chant from the crowd. He says Cass has been rambling like someone who has been knocked down two weeks in a row. And that’s because he has. Cass tells Enzo if he has something to tell him, to walk down and say it to his face. Enzo brings out The Big Show.

They walk down to the ring. Big Show gets in and Enzo is dancing on the ring apron. Big Cass hits it off the apron. Anderson and Gallows run to the ring and start beating on the Big Show. Anderson ties a belt to the Big Show’s wrist and they tie it onto the shake cage. Cass slams the shark cage door onto the Big Show’s wrist!

Big Show screams and flops around the ring. Anderson and Gallows give him no time to recover as they pin him down and Cass stomps on the hand again! Cass poses with Anderson and Gallows as Big Show is left in tears.

Apparently SummerSlam is coming early and we’re getting this Championship match now, I wonder if that means it won’t take place again on Sunday?

Mickie James is backstage and in walks Emma. Emma isn’t happy about Sasha Banks getting the title shot at SummerSlam tonight, and says Twitter is all about Banks. She says it’s stupid because she deserves this chance, she stared the women’s revolution and yet girls come from everywhere and leap ahead of her. Mickie says that Emma rewrites her own history because last week she did have an opportunity and she tapped out. Mickie says she can have another opportunity tonight by facing a 6X Women’s Champion.
