Hello everyone and welcome back! This week we'll see the semi-finals of the WWE World Heavyweight championship tournament! That leads me to the Question of the Week: Who would you LIKE to see win the WWE WHC Tournament.
WWE Raw Results
Raw starts with a moment of silence for the victims of the attacks in Paris.
The show kicks off with druids coming to the ring and then GONG! Undertaker and Kane make their way out.
Undertaker- Standing before you is the true army of darkness. And on the horizon vengeance awaits the Wyatt Family. The Wyatt Family took our bodies and tried to claim our souls but there is no one, no man, living or dead that can tame the power of the dark side.
Kane- When you try to control the flames of Hell, you're bound to get burned. At Survivor Series we have reserved a special place for the Wyatt Family in the deepest pit of Hell. A place where they will suffer in eternal damnation..
Undertaker- Bray Wyatt your kind of evil is no match for ours. Our evil has been time tested over and over again. So this is what's going to happen, Bray Wyatt choose whichever two members you wish to sacrifice. They will never Rest In Peace.
The Wyatt Family emerges from the back. Bray sits in a rocker at the top of the stage surrounded by his family.
Bray- For 25 years, you have reigned over the WWE. An empire built and molded by darkness. For 25 years you have instilled fear. I say 25 years is long enough, I say that it is time for a new army of darkness, my army. The Brothers of Destruction are no longer fates master. You no longer make the wolves howl or make the lightning crash. Those are reserved for me. I am the face of fear, I am it's master. After Survivor Series you'll only be remembered as the brothers I destroyed. I am the one! I am Bray Wyatt! *thunder* As for your creatures of the night, they are mine.
DEH!!!! The druids are all wearing sheep masks now and they attack The Brothers of Destruction but are all quickly taken out and the last two are simultaneously chokeslammed. They wave on the Wyatts, but Bray stops them.
Bray- Wait! Our date with destiny is set. Until then...FOLLOW THE BUZZARDS!

You're right there, you've always been close, but now you're right there. I'm not just blowing smoke. You got everything it takes, very few guys can do what you do in that right. You know that, I know that. I just think you need that little bit of extra. This might just be the time for you to grab that brass ring, to prove to the word that you're the man. Know what I mean?
Cesaro- Thank you, I appreciate that.
HHH- I'll be watching tonight. I'll be watching you with Roman Reigns, I'll be sitting in my own personal Cesaro section. Take the extra step, do anything and maybe it's time for Cesaro to be the man...know what I'm sayin? Good luck.

The night after Hell in a Cell I earned the right to fight Seth Rollins for the WWE Championship at Survivor Series but we hit a big bump in the road because Seth is unable to compete due to injury. So Triple H had to create a tournament to crown a new champion. Triple H says he can put me in the finals just like that. All I had to do was join the Authority, I thought about it long and hard but I had a huge problem...I don't sell out. I never have and I never will so this road is going to get rougher. I'm going to have to go through Cesaro, Kalisto, Kevin Owens, Alberto Del Rio, even my boy Dean Ambrose. But this ride ends with me as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion! And you can believe that!

Michael Cole is in the ring for the Divas contract signing.
Cole- Ladies and Gentlemen over the last several years I've had the opportunity to get to know these two gifted athletes and Sunday they meet at Survivor Series for the Divas Championship. First the former 2 time Divas Champion, Paige. *Paige comes to the ring* And ladies and gentlemen, the Divas Champion, Charlotte!
Cole- Ladies, what the fans are trying to understand here is. In NXT you guys bonded, and became friends. What happened to the friendship.
Paige- First of all there are no friendships Michael. When you're a true champion, there are no room for emotions. I'll show Charlotte that this Sunday when I take back my championship.
Charlotte- It must be exhausting being this bitter and angry all the time.
Paige- How am I bitter or angry? I don't even look that way.
Charlotte- What happened to you Paige? What made you like this. I didn't get in this business to make friends. When I started in NXT, forget that we had similar backgrounds, I wanted to be like you. I was the naive sweet Carolina girl, you were the British badass. We didn't grow up like most little girls. We grew up watching our parents night after night on the TV. They care about wrestling almost as much as they cared about us. That's why my late brother... when my brother passed away you were there for me. I am here today because of him, that's the only reason. To fulfill his dream, we were family.
Paige- You know what Charlotte, it doesn't matter what I said or did. I have been using you since day 1.
Charlotte- Using me? You must suck at that because I'm Divas Champion and you're not. What's sad is it didn't have to be that way, it's not about the title it's about who has your back at the end of the day.
Paige- Where did you learn that? Doctor Phil or Seventeen magazine? You gonna keep crying Charlotte?
Charlotte- Team Extreme! Degeneration X! The Four Horsemen! Team PCB was going change things until you threw it all away.
Paige- Wrong I throw Team PCB away because I deserve that championship more than anyone--
Charlotte- You're not a champion! You never were! A champion is someone little girls can look up to and want to be like. I won't be champion forever, but when I lose that title it won't be this Sunday, and it damn sure won't be to someone like YOU!
Paige- You know what, that was quite a speech. I had a tear in my eye, oh wait not that was confidence. You are so naive and weak it's embarrassing. You know what I'm so sick of this. You think everyone has your back but at Sunday no one will! Not even Daddy, Mr. Four Horsemen himself! Where are you Ric? Why don't you come on out here and drop one of those famous elbow drops on your jacket? Cause you know that's so impressive you old fart!
Charlotte- You shut your mouth! Or there won't be a Survivor Series, you won't even make it out of this building. I will continue to fight every single day, just like my family, my dad and my brother.
Paige- You're wrong Charlotte, because you're little brother didn't have much fight in him did he?!
Charlotte leaps over the table and attacks Paige. Paige makes it out of the ring but Charlotte chases her and tackles her into the barricade. Charlotte throws Paige over the announce table and continue to attack her. The refs try and pull them apart but Charlotte isn't having it. Paige eventually gets away and makes her way up the ramp to end the show.
