WWE Monday Night Raw Results – Sep 11 2017

[adace-ad id="652493"]

Brock Lesnar’s music hits, and the WWE Universal Champion makes his way to the ring to a tremendous pop alongside Paul Heyman. “Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and I am the advocate for the reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar.” Heyman’s job this evening is to sell them on something that is already sold. On September 24 at the Staples Center on a PPV known as No Mercy, his client will defend the championship against the most worthy challenger in ages, Braun Strowman. For the first time since Lesnar faced The Undertaker at WrestleMania, he is the underdog. One reason why is Strowman powerslammed Lesnar through two tables and dumped a third on top of him. The next night, Strowman laid waste to Lesnar. Lesnar will face an individual that is bigger than him and more powerful than him. Heyman has a question: is Strowman badder than the baddest dude on the planet? Strowman will have to be all three: bigger, stronger, and badder than Brock Lesnar. You can’t just win the title from him. You have to rip the title away from The Beast and Conqueror. You have to take what belongs to Lesnar.

This reminds him of Lesnar in 2002 when “The Next Big Thing” beat, victimized, and conquered The Rock, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Rob Van Dam, and The Undertaker. Tonight, Strowman will try to beat, victimize, and conquer John Cena. Can Strowman “monster-handle” John Cena? That brings him back to his original question. Can Strowman cross the border of the safety of sports entertainment into the hostile ground known as “Suplex City.” Not to ruin the box office appeal, but when they used to lock his client in the “Brock-tagon,” they would ask him if he’s ready. Lesnar is ready. Heyman gives Strowman the opportunity to come down and fight.

Braun Strowman’s music hits, and he comes out to a big reception. Strowman gets in the ring, elbows out of a German Suplex, and viciously punches and kicks Lesnar down in the corner. Strowman goes for a powerslam, but Lesnar slides off, shoves him into the corner, and hits a German Suplex, but Strowman immediately pops up! The crowd loudly chants, “Holy Sh*t!” Strowman gives him a chokeslam before laying him out with a powerslam! Strowman stands tall over Lesnar. Strowman picks up the championship and looks at it. Strowman holds it up while placing a foot on Lesnar’s chest! Strowman puts the title on top of him and poses before leaving the ring. Lesnar is bleeding from the mouth.

John Cena will face Braun Strowman in tonight’s main event. We’ll also see Enzo Amore on Miz TV. Coming up next, we’ll hear from Bray Wyatt.

*Commercial Break*

The commentators send condolences to those suffering from the effects of Hurricanes Harvey and Jose.

Bray Wyatt makes his way to the ring or a match against Goldust. On the screen before he enters, Bray says he used to think Goldust was bizarre and different. Now he thinks Goldust is just afraid to take the paint off and show the world the man that lives underneath. This man has so many scars and pains that he wishes the paint would dry for good. Goldust’s pain is just like Finn Bálor’s. The paint is a weapon to protect them. As for Goldust, all he can do is run.

Goldust vs. Bray Wyatt

The bell rings, and Goldust punches away at him before big booting him down. Wyatt rolls out of the ring to recover, so Goldust goes outside and clotheslines him down. Goldust gets him in the ring and kicks him. Wyatt quickly comes back with a clothesline before punching away at him.

Goldust rolls out of the way of a senton splash before sending him to the outside. Goldust then hits a rolling senton off the apron! Goldust punches him before putting him in the ring. Wyatt hits him and sends him into the ring post. Wyatt pulls him into the ring, and Goldust gets a jackknife pin for a two count. Wyatt quickly lays him out with a flying body block before hitting Sister Abigail for the win.

Winner: Bray Wyatt

Wyatt takes a towel and kneels by Goldust before wiping his face paint off. Wyatt screams that Goldust is just a man like Finn Bálor. Bálor’s music hits, and he runs down to get Wyatt away.

Charly Caruso is backstage with Sheamus and Cesaro. She asks about facing Gallows and Anderson tonight. Does this help them prepare for Rollins and Ambrose? Sheamus says Gallows and Anderson are more of a challenge than Rollins and Ambrose. Cesaro says at least Gallows and Anderson are a team. Sheamus says it’s easy to be a team when everything is going your way. Cesaro says at their core, Rollins and Ambrose are selfish. It’s their instincts. When they rip them apart, they’ll prove that they don’t just set the bar. They are The Bar.

*Commercial Break*

Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose have joined the commentary desk to watch their peers.

While Sheamus and Cesaro are making their entrance, they trash-talk Rollins and Ambrose. A brawl breaks out. Anderson and Gallows help Sheamus and Cesaro clear it up. They then start brawling. Referees come out to regain order. Agents also come out to separate the teams. This match apparently isn’t happening.

Enzo Amore will be on Miz TV. The main event will be John Cena vs. Braun Strowman.

*Commercial Break*

Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose are backstage with Kurt Angle demanding a match with both teams tonight. Angle won’t put them in a position like that, but he’ll let the match happen if they find two partners. Ambrose says they will if they have to go to Disney and get Mickey Mouse and Batman. Angle says it has to be real people, but does think Batman would be a good partner.

We get a video package…Asuka is coming soon to RAW!!

Nia Jax is watching backstage and looks unimpressed. Alexa Bliss cannot believe Asuka is coming to RAW. This should be their show. No Mercy should be the two of them in a match. Jax says they’re not best friends and says she spoke to Kurt Angle. She’ll face Bliss one-on-one next week.

Elias will be out to debut a new song, next.

*Commercial Break*

Elias is in the ring and wants to know who wants to walk with him. The crowd gives a big pop. Elias says this song is for all of them. Elias then proceeds to rip Anaheim by saying the best thing to do around here is pack your bags and leave. The crowd immediately begins booing him. Kalisto interrupts to absolutely no reaction. His music sounds a little like TJP’s.

Elias vs. Kalisto

Kalisto kicks away at the legs before Elias strikes him. Kalisto boots him back and comes off the top rope with a cross-body. Kalisto pulls the top rope down to get him out of the ring before hitting a summersault senton. Kalisto gets him in the ring, but Elias rolls back out. Elias then drives the arm off the apron.

Elias soon clotheslines him down and applies an arm bar.  Elias continues working the arm before Kalisto comes back, taking him down with a tornado DDT for a two count. Kalisto tries to rip his t-shirt off, but it doesn’t work. Elias counters a hurricanrana into a vicious powerbomb. Elias stomps away at him before hitting Drift Away for the win.

Winner: Elias

Footage is shown of Braun Strowman destroying Brock Lesnar. Strowman will face John Cena, next.
