WWE Monday Night Raw Results – Sep 11 2017

[adace-ad id="652493"]

The crowd is asked to stand for a moment of silence to pay tribute to all those souls that were lost on September 11, 2001. Sadly, a few members of the crowd felt the need to shout and make noise during the silence – how pathetic.

We cut to the Raw intro video, then the announcers rundown the show: WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will be on the show and we’ll also see Braun Strowman take on John Cena. Roman Reigns comes out to start the show with a match!

Roman Reigns Vs. Jason Jordan

Before the match can begin, Jason Jordan extends his hand for a shake, but Reigns declines. The bell rings, and they circle the ring before locking up. John Cena is watching backstage. They give a clean break. Reigns gets a waistlock applied, but Jordan quickly gets out and goes for a takedown. Reigns doesn’t go down and instead connects with a pair of right hands. Reigns drives him into the corner twice. Jordan tries to fight back, but Reigns again backs him up with a punch.

Reigns starts clubbing him in the corner, but Jordan quickly counters before connecting with a belly-to-belly overhead suplex. Jordan drives some shoulders into Reigns’ midsection before punching away at him. Jordan puts him in the corner and stomps him down. Jordan whips him hard into the corner before whipping him sternum-first into the corner. Jordan charges, but Reigns explodes out of the corner with a clothesline.

Reigns gets Jordan in the corner and hits ten clubs before hitting the ropes for a big boot. Reigns goes for a Superman Punch, but Jordan counters into a crossface. Reigns gets to the bottom rope and gets out of the ring to regroup. Jordan has Reigns reeling!

Jordan hits the ropes, but Reigns floors him with a Samoan Drop for a near fall.

Reigns goes back to the rear chin lock. Jordan eventually fights up and powers Reigns to the corner. Reigns tries to boot him back, but Jordan counters and hits another belly-to-belly overheard suplex. They both take some time to fight up, and Reigns goes for a Samoan Drop, but Jordan slides off and sends him into the corner before hitting a clothesline for a two count.

They get to their feet and trade punches before Jordan hits a pair of forearms and a dropkick for a near fall. Jordan powers him to the corner and goes for a belly-to-belly, but Reigns punches out. Jordan ducks a clothesline and hits a snap back suplex for a two count. Jordan waits for Reigns to get up and hits a running shoulder thrust.

Jason Jordan pulls down his leotard straps and hits an impressive northern lights suplex and rolls through and hits another.

Winner: Roman Reigns

After the match we see Cena watching the monitor again and he smiles as though he knows Roman had to dig deep to win. Inside the ring, Reigns offers a hand to Jason Jordan and they shake. Charly Caruso approaches Cena backstage and asks if Cena has anything to say about that and he says yes, but he will say it to Roman, right now!

*Commercial Break*

Roman Reigns is in the ring waiting, and John Cena’s music hits. Cena comes to the ring to a great reaction. John throws a microphone to Roman and tells him it’s not a nightstick to match his riot gear. Cena says he can’t wait to hear what Roman has to say because last week he made fun of him for going 20 minutes with Jordan. Cena asks what Roman has to say considering he almost just lost. Then Cena mocks him and says he will probably respond with “cause i’m a big dog and it’s my yard”.

Reigns says he was out here having a great match, something Cena knows nothing about. Reigns says he’s had more great matches in two years than Cena has had in his entire career. Cena loves it. Reigns makes it easy for him. Cena does have to stay sharp – he just has to let Reigns talk. Reigns is burying himself. It’s not to say that Reigns isn’t good. Reigns has skill and ability, but he’s got his head so far up his own ass that he’s like a one-man human centipede. Reigns actually thinks he runs this place and is responsible for the crowd. No one has ever cut Reigns down to size. That’s why he’s here. Cena has been accused of spinning things, but he challenges himself to try anything. Reigns thinks he’s already made it, but the second you think that is the beginning of the end. Cena says Reigns will learn what real failure is all about. Cena gets in his face and says week after week he lets Reigns take shot after shot, but he fails and fails. That is not what THE guy does. THE guy steps up, stays sharp, and does his homework, which is something Reigns should have done before he brought his sorry ass out here. If Reigns really is THE guy, he’ll dust himself off, stand up, and show him something at No Mercy. Cena says Reigns doesn’t have it in him. No Mercy will be a cakewalk.

Cena goes to leave, but Reigns tells him to bring his “bitch ass” back in here. Reigns says usually a superstar calls out John Cena to make a name for themselves, but Cena came here to RAW to call him out. Reigns thinks it’s because he’s selling the tickets Cena hasn’t sold in five years. Cena says Reigns isn’t doing his job, but ticket sales are great, revenue is sky high, and WWE can make it without him. WWE doesn’t need Cena. Cena needs WWE because he can’t break into Hollywood. Reigns says if Cena needs help, he knows a guy (meaning his cousin The Rock). Reigns tells Cena to do his big talk, but it means nothing because he can’t back it up. Cena says when people push you over the line, you have to fight fire with fire. Cena says at No Mercy, Reigns can consider it like a drug test – he’s not getting past him! Cena then walks off while the crowd gasps.

*Commercial Break*

Sasha Banks Vs. Emma

Right away, Sasha gets hold of Emma but Emma counters and lands a few kicks to the sternum. Banks takes over and lands a few punches of her own. Banks then lands a huge kick, but Emma counters with a big clothesline and takes control.

Nia Jaxx’s music hits and she makes her way to the commentary booth and has a stare down with Bliss, as we go into a commercial break.

*Commercial Break*

We come back from the break to see Banks trapped in a full nelson. Emma releases to cover her, but Banks kicks out. Emma slams her down for another two count. Emma punches away at her, but Banks comes back with a roll-up for a two count. Emma chops her, but she runs into an elbow. Banks takes her down and hits a pair of clotheslines and a dropkick.

Emma reverses a whip, but Banks comes back with a head-scissor takeover. Emma boots her back and puts her in the tree of woe. Emma kicks her in the back a few times before splashing her in the corner for a two count. Banks eventually comes back with a Bank Statement out of nowhere for the win.

Winner: Sasha Banks

We see replays of last week’s ma in event, when Braun Strowman defeated The Big Show inside of a steel cage. John Cena will face Braun tonight. Brock Lesnar is out next!
