From Charlotte, North Carolina
Report by Zack Krasney of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
Hello, all you lovely people and welcome back! This is Monday Night Raw here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com. I am your host, as usual, Zack Krasney. We have an exciting Raw tonight, with a Women's Championship match scheduled Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte. Again. That's fine. I assume Sasha will win and they'll just keep playing hot potato with the title every few weeks. Sasha ALWAYS wins it on Raw and Charlotte ALWAYS wins it back the next PPV. They'll continue using their rematch clause over and over until we all die. Also, expect the Road to Royal Rumble to continue to build subtly in the background.
Question of the Night: Which rivalry would you rather see Chris Jericho vs. Roman Reigns or Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns?
Monday Night Raw
Raw kicks off with Chris Jericho!
Jericho- Welcome to the Highlight Reel! Tonight my guest needs no introduction but I'll give him one anyway. The longest reigning WWE Universal Champion in history and my best friend! Kevin Owens!
KO- Chris, I gotta say it's an honor to be out here with you for the second week in a row. Is that the first time that's happened? Making history! Best friends making history! That's what we do, not what these people do. No reason to boo that. What you people did do was celebrate Thanksgiving. That holiday where you get together with your families and pretend to like each other. You give thanks what you're grateful for, American Thanksgiving is just a way to get one last meal in before you rush out to trip over each other to save 60 bucks on a tv. You should all be very proud. Chris and I didn't do that because we're a superior bread of human called Canadians. We celebrate Thanksgiving last month. Chris why don't we just ignore these silly USA chants. Let's say what we're thankful for. Can I start? I'm thankful for being your WWE Universal Champion. I am thankful for being the face of the premiere show in WWE, Monday Night Raw, also known as the Kevin Owens show. Last but not least I am thankful for my best friend Chris Jericho.
Chris- I'm gonna go now. I'm thankful you're my best friend. For this wicked rad scarf. I'm also for Seth Rollins. Let me explain, I'm thankful for he showed what happens when your ego takes over. Thankful he showed what happens when you're a stupid idiot. He cashed in his rematch and failed epically. Mick Foley banned me from ringside but that wasn't Jericho wearing a Sin Cara mask, that was Sin Cara wearing a Chris Jericho mask.
KO- I had Seth Rollins exactly where I wanted him and after I beat him last week he isn't medically cleared.
Roman Reigns music hits
KO- Can we help you?
Reign- Why'd you stop talking. You guys are hilarious. Best friends.
Chris- Oh we make you laugh? Like a clown? A little song and dance to make you laugh? SHUT UP! Think it's a joke?
Roman- I think your best friend as champion is a huge joke.
KO- Did you just say me as WWE Universal Champion is a huge a joke? The only joke I see around here is you calling yourself "the guy."
Roman- That's no joke I am THE guy. You're just a guy who needs a lot of help.
KO- Help for what?
Roman- For everything! That's why you keep him around.
KO- You think I need him? I don't need Chris Jericho.
Roman- Let me get this straight? You don't need Chris Jericho. Thing is, I disagree. If you didn't have him last week, you would've lost that title. The week before that too. And the week before that, and before that.
Jericho- Enough! You know what happens when you insult my best friend. You know what happens when you make fun of Kevin Owens?!
KO- SHUT UP! I got this. You can't talk to me that way.
Roman- Or what?
KO- What am I gonna do? How about I drag you out there and powerbomb you onto the apron like I did Seth Rollins.
Roman- There he is. That's the Kevin Owens I want. Not Joke Owens Joke. Fight Owens Fight. Let's fight. Tonight. And how about if I win, I go on to take your Universal Championship at Roadblock.
KO- You want a fight? You got it! You just booked yourself on the Kevin Owens show!
Roman- I love that show, but spoilers, at the end of the show I'm gonna be kicking your ass.
Kevin Owens is furious backstage, but Jericho asks him why he yelled at Jericho to shut up in the ring. Owens tells him he can't believe that's what he's focused on. He tells Chris that Roman is right, Chris thinks he's helping but all he is doing is making people think he can't win on his own. Jericho tells Owens that he can't believe him. Owens doesn't need Chris? Well he's done helping him and he's done being his best friend. Owens tells Chris he'll regret that. Mick Foley walks up but Chris tells Mick he doesn't need to punish him because he never has to worry about Jericho interfering for Owens again. Mick looks ecstatic.
Braun Strowman vs. R-Truth
Truth goes for a quick kick but Braun hits a clothesline and then a huge running splash in the corner then a running powerslam for the win.
Winner: Braun Strowman
Goldust gets in the ring to protect Truth and then attacks Strowman when he approaches. He locks Goldust in a bear hug but Sami Zayn runs out to make the save! Sami fights him but Braun gets the better of Sami and then hangs him upside down in the corner. A bunch of refs and Mick Foley runs out to stop him.
We return from break and Byron asks Mick Foley, in the ring, why he has stopped the fighting between Sami and Braun two weeks in a row. Mick says sometimes you need to save someone from themselves. Mick says Sami will never quit but he can never beat Braun Strowman and he'll get destroyed in the process. Sami asks Mick if he's serious? Mick says he made the match last week because Stephanie doesn't like him and wanted to fire him for his failure. So Mick made the match, but it wasn't a match it was a massacre! Sami says Mick made a career out of proving people wrong and overcoming incredible odds. As far as Sami is concerned Mick is a hypocrite.
Cedrick Alexander vs. Tony Nese
Alexander twists the arm of Nese. Arm drag from Cedrick. Nese catches Alexander but he rolls out of it and hits a hurricarana and a dropkick.

Chris Jericho gets asked if this fight is real or fake like last week. He says it's very real. He walks to his car and has his driver open the door for him. The drive accidentally knocks the list out of Jericho's hand. Jericho picks it up while calling him a stupid idiot. When he stands up he's standing face to face with Seth Rollins. Rollins asks if he made the list and then attacked Jericho. Seth throws Jericho around the parking lot and ends the attack with a pedigree on the roof of a car!

An interviewer walks up to ask Kevin Owens a question but he asks her if she's really going to talk to him right now?! He says he say what happened to his best friend Chris Jericho, yes they're still best friends, and he couldn't even focus on his match knowing his best friend was headed to a hospital. Mick Foley should've canceled his match but he went out there and did the best he could in the condition he was in.
Michael Cole interviewed Paul Heyman. He asks Paul what happened. Paul says they screwed up and there is no getting around it. They took Goldberg lightly. He hadn't stepped into the ring in 12 years and gets into the ring with Brock Lesnar. They thought it was an easy payday. Right out of the gate Goldberg hits a spear and cracks Lesnar's ribs. You can't breath you can't fight. Cole asks how Brock is handling it. Paul says like Cole cares. The humilation and embarrasment...there are no excused. This is now part of Brock's legacy. He's dealt with losses before but this is embarrassing and has put Brock in the mindset that he has something to prove. Which scares Heyman. That moment can define you, destroy you or drive you. Think about what Brock Lesnar with something to prove is capable of. If Brock has something to prove, then he'll prove it. If Goldberg is in the Royal Rumble, then Brock Lesnar is going to be in the Royal Rumble. There will be 28 losers, 1 winner, and 1 victim. Goldberg.
