Hello guys and gals and welcome back! This is Monday Night Raw here on Wrestling News World. Last night saw one of the most shocking endings to a PPV we've seen since Brock Lesnar ended the Undertaker's streak at Wrestlemania. The question is how will WWE capitalize?
Question of the Night: How did you feel about Goldberg jobbing Brock Lesnar?
Monday Night Raw
Monday Night Raw is kicking off with the man who destroyed Brock Lesnar, Gooooldberg!
Goldberg- I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you. You guys gave me the ability to be Goldberg again. The ability to grab a piece of that limelight that I yearned for. I want to thank my beautiful wife, I can be one big moody son of a bitch and she put up with that for 6-7 weeks while I trained. I want to thank my wonderful little boy. I want to thank my boy for giving me the ability and desire to be that superhero again, thank you son. And the simple truth is, I did what I said I was going to do. I came, I fought, and I conquered the beast, Brock Lesnar. But there is a simple reality that all good things must come to an end. Then a funny thing happened when I was walking to the back. I ran into Stephanie McMahon who said you did have one more spear, one more jackhammer, and one hell of an asskicking left in you. Then she looked me in the eye and said do you have one more title run left in you. You bet your ass I do! Then she says, the road to that title is through the Royal Rumble. What does that mean? At the Royal Rumble...EVERYONE is next.
New Day vs. Cesaro and Sheamus for the Tag Team Championships

Woods- That's our WWE World Tag Team Championships. We've held them longer than any team in WWE history. Now WWE used to have a different set of Tag Team Championships and those were held by a team called Demolition for 478 days, but in 23 days we will break THAT record as well.
Kofi- That record will be DEMOLISHED!

Kofi ducks a forearm and Sheamus blasts Cesaro by accident. Tag to Big E! Belly to Belly! And another! A third for good measure! Cesaro runs in but gets thrown out. Big splash! 2 count! Sheamus rakes the eyes of E hits White Noise on Big E and gets 2 of his own! Both teams tag. Cesaro with an uppercut train on Kofi!

Chris- Welcome to the Highlight Reel. Tonight is a special edition, I call this the autopsy to the biggest loss in history when Team Raw was beaten by Team Smackdown Live. When things like this happen people want answers. Right here right now I'm going to let the world know why this happened.--
Kevin Owens music hits and interrupts Chris.
Owens- You know what Chris that's a great question, who is to blame. I actually know the answer so I figured I'd come out and show everyone. You don't mind if I use the Jeritron 5000?
Chris- It's the Jeritron 6500, you were there when I upgraded.
Owens- Sorry, Monkey is in the truck show the pictures. First is a picture of you about to get hit with the Styles Clash. Then this is a picture of me saving you from that Styles Clash because I am your best friend.
Chris- Are you? Are you my best friend? If you're my best friend you know how much the list means to me. To use it as a weapon, the papers flying everywhere! My deepest darkest--
Owens- Are you serious?! Who cares?!
Chris- I care. I care Kevin, about the list. It means everything to me. You're supposed to be my best friend.
Owens- I am your best friend! That's why I saved you from a Styles Clash! I got myself disqualified for you! You didn't even captialize on it, you were so worried about some damn papers you got RKOed! Where is the damn picture of that! MONKEYS! MONKEYS! PICTURE! That's a waste of our friendship!
Chris- You know what, if that's how you feel maybe we don't have much of a friendship to begin with. Every week it's the same thing. Spear, pedigree, RKO. You're never there when I need you! You're never there to have my back! You know what Owens, I know who's fault it is we lost last week!
Owens- Say it!
Chris- You want me to say it! I'm disgusted by this and by you! I'm done!
Owens- No I'll tell you whose fault it is!.....
Both- ROMAN REIGNS!
Chris- Hey man, I know you were only standing up for your best friend. You'd never do anything hurt me.
Owens- And I know you know I'd never do anything to compromise the list.
Chris- I appreciate that! Roman Reigns however didn't do a damn thing for Team Raw.
Owens- I know! When you were in the Styles Clash Roman was just standing there, not even flinching to go save you. Just standing there with sweat and conditioner pouring out of his stupid hair. I had to step in because he wasn't going to do it! You know who else wasn't going to? His stupid hair conditioner friend Seth Rollins!
Rollins music hits.
Seth- I hate to interupt but I have a bone to pick with you. What happened last night happened, but we have to look to the future. I have to remind you I was promised certain opportunities to be on a team with you. That chance is a title shot for that Universal championship and I want it TONIGHT!
Owens- Seth let me ask you this, who said they'd give you those opportunities? Was it Stephanie because I'll go talk to her right now.
Chris- What we're saying Seth, you stupid idiot, is we don't believe a word you're saying. You're the architect of lies and deceit.
Seth- I don't give a damn what you believe. I'm gonna take that title from you Kev. Since you two seem to be joined at the hip I'll go through both of you. Dig?
Rollins attacks both men but the numbers start to give Kevin and Chris the advantage. Roman Reigns music hits and the Big Dog makes his way down for the save! Jericho gets hit with a Superman Punch as Kevin runs for the back. Mick Foley's music hits.
