Hello all my lovely friends! Here we are once again for Monday Night Raw! We are set for a Women's Championship match, which I'm sure will be a treat! Let's get it going!

Question of the Night: Will tonight's Women's Championship end clean or dirty?

Image placeholder title

Raw kicks off in the ring with Roman Reigns!

Roman- My bloodline has been represented in the WWE for a long time. But we've never had anyone win the US Championship until now. That's because I am THE guy. I come out and represent my family on a nightly basis--

Rusev's music hits and Lana comes out.

Lana- Roman, I've come out here to talk to you, but my husband doesn't know.

Roman- What? We're in the Staples Center, there are cameras everywhere.

Lana- I'm here to negotiate with you, my husband wants a rematch for the US Championship.

Roman- So he's hiding behind your skirt.

Lana- He is my husband, my family. You come out and talk about your family and your pride for them, but you have zero respect for a man as a husband. Wipe that smile off your face you stupid boy. This is not funny, my husband will crush you and humiliate you!

Roman- You're clearly upset, go backstage and deliver Rusev his balls and tell him to get out here.

Rusev's music hits and Rusev comes out and Roman and he go at it at ringside. The action spills into the ring and Rusev takes control. Roman hits a hard right hand and Rusev rolls out of the ring. Roman tries for a Superman Punch but Rusev hits a wicked kick. Rusev throws Roman into the fans and grabs the United States Championship. Rusev goes up the ramp but Roman comes out from behind him and blasts him from behind. Roman grabs a mic and tells Rusev he'll get his rematch inside Hell in a Cell!

Winner: The Brian Kendrick

Seth Rollins does an interview with Michael Cole. They talk about Seth Rollins' rib injury, he says he's cleared to wrestle but was advised to rest. Seth says rest isn't really his thing. Rollins says he used to be a cog in the machine and now Kevin Owens is that cog, but his eyes are wide open now.

Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho make their way to the ring.

Owens- You know Chris, I just watched Seth Rollins interview with Cole, Cole you were terrible by the way. Seth if you were smart you'd take the doctor's advice, but you're not. You could even say he's a stupid idiot. He has already decided to cash in on his rematch, but what has he done to earn it. The undeniable truth is he lost. He can blame anyone he wants, but really all he has to do is look right here. Because I am the one who beat you Seth. And tonight I am the one standing in this ring with the WWE Universal Championship. Now that I've answered that question, let me answer another. Why is the great Chris Jericho standing next to me?

Chris- Because we are the best of friends.

Owens- True, but not why we're here right now. One of the people Seth blames is the referee in our match. I think we'll need a referee who can handle anything. I think it should be you.

Chris- I think you're thinking a little short, I think we should challenge New Day for the Raw Tag Team Champions.

Kevin- I don't know Chris, that seems like a lot of work and I already have a lot on my plate.

Chris- Well it's not like I'm asking for a shot at YOUR championship.

Kevin- You know what, you're right. Let's do IT! Team Kevin and Chris!


Kofi- Well well well. I know you guys aren't in there talking about friendship, because around here. You know who has the best friendship in WWE?

All- WHO!?


Jericho- You know what, you just made the list!

Big E- Friends! Ones we can depend on! We hear your challenge and a challenge of that weight requires a championship huddle! Kevin, you can join if you want but Chris you can't.

Kevin- Alright that's enough! You guys have done it all together right?! Girlfriends! You won the WWE Tag Team Championships together! Good job! You held them for over 400 days. Good job. And what? 6 months ago, you jumped the shark together.

Woods- Woah jumped the shark? You know we don't swim. Look at yourself, when was the last time you jumped over anything?!

Kevin- You know what? That's good. Put Woods on the list again! Put him on again!

Woods- We were gonna go watch Luke Cage, but since you wanna talk about throwing hands with New Day? YOU'RE ON! You'll never defeat New Day to become W-W-E TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS BECAUUUSEEEEEE NEW DAY ROCKS!
