Report by Zack Krasney of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
Hello everyone and welcome back to Monday Night Raw! I know this week Raw is taped because they're in England. Personally I haven't read the spoilers, this isn't technically a spoiler free zone so if you wanna talk about things in the comments you can, but just be aware of others. Also to my video game fans, happy last few hours of freedom before Fallout 4 consumes your soul! Question of the Week: Who should fight for the WWE Championship at Survivor Series?
WWE Raw Results
Triple H starts off the show and the announcers talk about Seth Rollins injury.
HHH- I want to take a moment to acknowledge a great champion, the man Seth Rollins. See when Steph and I chose Seth Rollins we had high hopes for what that would be and Seth Rollins surpassed those expectations. That's right Thank You Seth Rollins! Every obstacle, every opponent Seth made his way through and retained the WWE Championship. But on his way to becoming the greatest champion of all time, Seth Rollins blew out his knee. While Seth Rollins is still the man, he his no longer WWE Champion. This creates an opportunity for someone to step up. A few weeks ago we determined a new #1 contender to face Seth Rollins for the WWE Championship at Survivor Series, I'd like to bring that man out now. Roman Reigns!
Roman makes his way though the crowd as usual.
HHH- As of this moment Seth Rollins isn't champion and there is a tournament starting tonight to determine the new WWE Champion. To me it seems unfair that Seth Rollins is no longer champion and it seems unfair that while you earned the right to be #1 contender it seems unfair that you go right back to the bottom of the pile and have to earn your way back up in this tournament. In reality it doesn't have to be that way, it could be easier. It could be that these guys battle it out for the right to face YOU at Survivor Series. That in my opinion seems more for, and before you say anything I want to tell you something I've never told you before. The reality is back before we made Seth Rollins the future of the WWE we strongly considered you first, and I mean STRONGLY. All that time when Evolution was facing the Shield, I was scouting. You have all the tools, the strength, the speed, the athleticism except for one thing, one thing Seth Rollins had, and that's the willingness to do what it takes to be the man. That's why Seth Rollins was WWE Champion and you were not. How did it feel to win the Royal Rumble, beating 29 other men, coming so close to beating Brock Lesnar, and having Seth Rollins come in and steal it away from you? Could you have beaten Brock Lesnar? Maybe. Could you have fought and kept your championship? We'll never know because Seth Rollins was willing to do ANYTHING to become and stay WWE Champion. And now here you are all these months later and you still have all of that, all those positives and nothing to show for it. You have dug and scratched to earn your way back to this title and you've hit wall after wall after wall, and I can make those walls go away. I'm not asking you to do anything you haven't already done, you've earned your spot. I'm asking if you wanna be the man, because if you do all you have to do is be MY man.
Roman- So you're gonna give me everything I've already earned and all I have to do is sell out?
HHH- Sell out, that's a funny thing. Selling out is what people who didn't succeed say to justify how others got ahead of them. Sellout is a word THEY chant because they will never be what you are. Don't let some misguided morals ruin your shot for you. You think they're not going to criticize what you do, I don't care how you do it. You don't want to get criticized then do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing. You want THIS title, then realize you're not going to be liked by everyone all the time. Understand what I am offering you. This is everything you've ever wanted since you were a boy. You wanted to say I'm the man, you wanted everything that comes with it. You don't want to die and have it say "yeah but everyone liked me." I'm offering you an opportunity for you and everything you hold dear, your family. Setting up your daughters daughters. All you have to do is be my man.
Roman- Everything I've gotten I've EARNED. Every chance I've had I fought for it. I've never gotten a hand out and no one can ever take that away from me. But it ain't going down tonight you can take your offer and shove it.
HHH- Thank you, thank you for reminding me why I didn't chose you in the first place. Welcome to the back of the line. Don't go anywhere your match is right now.

Zeb Colter- Cut the music, I don't think I need to introduce myself. In MexAmerica we believe Mexico and America should combine to become one great nation. We would ask England to join us if you weren't so despised around the world. What was that rumble? Some hate? Haters out there? I know what you're moaning and groaning about. You're craving leadership from MexAmerica. Let's face some hard truths England, Germany is already telling you what to do. You're complaining about refugees coming across your borders, and even Scotland doesn't want anything to do with you. And I've seen this before, it usually ends in a disaster, it wouldn't surprise me to see on the news that Vladimir Putin was calling the shots here. It wasn't long ago that the women here weren't shaving their armpits. Right Alberto?
