WWE Raw Results – February 04, 2019

We’re back from the break and out comes the WWE Hall of Famer, Kurt Angle.

Angle starts off by saying “Intensity, integrity, and intelligence.” They aren’t just words, they are something he has lived his life by. He says he is reminded of his accomplishments, from winning the WWE Championship to tearing the house down with Shawn Michaels, soiling the ring with milk to meeting a son he never knew he had. But lately those words have turned into doubt, defeat, and depression. He says his recent matches with Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre have made him really doubt that he still has what it takes. Angle says in his day he has defeated them all. However he knows that there is on opponent that he can’t defeat, and that is father time. Suddenly he’s interrupted.

Baron Corbin comes to the stage and says “blah, blah, blah.” He asks Kurt to wrap it up, and asks if Angle wants a pity party. He says Angle did this to himself. He says we should have heard this speech two years ago at the Hall of Fame, but instead he signed a contract and had to try and prove that he still has it. He says Angle is a shadow of his former self, a broken down man. Angle says this shadow of a man will break his angle.

Drew McIntyre comes out and berates Angle for still being here, saying he saw fear in the man’s eyes when he faces him. He says Kurt Angle has no quit in him, but Angle keeps coming back until something drastic happens him. He tells Portland to shut up, and they boo, then tells them to get their camera’s ready because they’re about to see history. The two of them walk down to the ring but Kurt Angle receives some help.

Braun Strowman makes his way down ringside but Drew McIntyre shows no fear in running to meet him on the ramp. They brawl until Strowman gets the better of him and Angle sends Corbin from the ring. Both men turn tail and run, leaving Angle and Strowman in the ring. Do I smell a WrestleMania match?

Up next, Seth Rollins addresses his beat-down last week.

Jarrett comes to the ring and introduces himself, and says he is the world’s greatest singer and guitar player. Him and Road Dogg banter back and forth, then begin to sing a song together.

Elias comes out and tells them the song they’ve been singing for 25 years is just like them. It hasn’t aged well. He asks Jarrett if he can even play the guitar, then says Road Dogg should be on SmackDown bringing down their ratings instead. He says he would rather watch the half time show of the Super Bowl but he preferred to be in Portland. That got a laugh. A city which doesn’t even have an NFL team. That got a boo. Elias says it’s easy. He comes out, they shut up and he sings. But he will not sing in Portland. He says Jeff and Road Dogg can keep up this pathetic act but it won’t change the truth and that truth is that WWE stands for Walk With Elias.

Jeff Jarrett says in the immortal words of one of his greatest rivalries, “hey chico, don’t sing it, bring it.” Jeff Jarrett gets out of the ring and goes after Elias. A right hand by Jarrett and Elias gets in the ring. The referee rings for the bell.
