Hello all and welcome back to Monday Night Raw live coverage on WNW! I'm glad to see everyone! We are coming off the lowest Raw ratings in nearly two decades, so what will WWE do? Will they fight back with good booking? Will they continue on the path they started on? Or will we see an emergency reset of storylines? Question of the Week: If you were in charge of WWE creative for this week, how would you fight back against the low ratings?

AWWWW DON'T YOU DARE BE SOUR!
New Day is kicking off Monday Night Raw and there is confetti falling from the ceiling.
Now I know what you're thinking, whose birthday is it?
Tonight is not about a birthday it's about a NEW DAY!
Tonight is a celebration
There is a party going on
These people don't know what a gala is.
E you're sweating again. I got this terrible towel for you.
Anyways, today marks a new era, a new beginning. A new champion! So it's time to put your hands together and give a warm New Day welcome to that Irish jigging, mohawk wearing, Brogue Kickin, ginger giant! Sheamus!
Sheamus comes to the ring.
Sheamus- Thank you so much! That was great! What an introduction! I'm sorry but the only people here who look stupid are all of you. I'm WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Guys your attitude is so infectious.
Big E- Just like the water in this city.
Sheamus- I'd also like to thank the Authority. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, a couple who taught me life's greatest lesson. When opportunity comes knocking, put on your best suit and smile and answer the door.
And those who are too stubborn or negative will cause it to leave.
Right now I'd like to thank the man who made this all come true! A man who helped me achieve my dreams! Roman Reigns!
He was champ like 8 days ago.
If Roman Reigns had just have accepted Triple H's handshake I may not be wearing this title. You'll agree this just looks so much better on me! Roman Reigns I owe you so much, I really do! If you weren't there savoring every single moment, achieved your life dream, you wouldn't have seen me coming. So I Brogue Kicked the title right off you after 5 minutes and 15 seconds. So all of you can forget about your Austin 3:16, cause Sheamus 5:15 says I just kicked your arse!
Sheamus celebrates in the ring but Roman Reigns comes out of nowhere and blasts Sheamus with a Superman Punch! He takes the WWE Championship and walks out.
Roman Reigns is with Dean Ambrose and the Usos showing of the WWE Championship when the Authority walks up.
Roman- What's up
Triple H- I believe you have something that doesn't belong to you.
Roman- But doesn't it look so good with me.
Steph- Cut the crap and just give us back the WWE Championship.
Roman goes to hand it to Triple H and then hands it to Steph instead.
Roman- Tell Magic Mohawk in two weeks, I'm taking this back.
Triple H- I actually talked to Magic Mohawk and he said he doesn't want to wait two weeks. He wants to kick your arse again tonight.
Roman- Great, we'll do this tonight.
Steph- Oh and Roman, if you want to win the championship, you have to beat Sheamus in under 5 minutes 15 seconds.

Rusev is in the ring with Miz
Miz- Welcome to the most must see show in WWE history, MizTV. Please get off your feet and welcome the Bulgarian brute. Please have a seat.
Rusev- Tonight is not about USA!
Miz- You look like you're back at 100% with vengeance. I can't imagine what it must have been like to be at home watching the WWE Championship tournament.
Rusev- Sitting at home just a month ago, unable to lift my head *We Want Lana chants* Everyone wants Lana but she is MINE! So shut up! Siting at home injured the WWE Universe didn't care about Rusev, no one sent get well cards, but one person cared and nursed me back to health. Who has all my love and heart, and I'd like to welcome her to the ring. *Lana comes to the ring*
Miz- This is what Miz TV is all about, love triangles, make ups, break ups, and unexpected engagements.
Lana- This is the happiest day of my life.
Miz- This is wild, after all the insults, after all the people you guys have been with. After all Rusev made Summer Rae Lana 2.0----Sorry. What brought you back together.
Lana- When Rusev asked me to spend the rest of our lives together all was forgiven. We fight hard, but we love just as hard. For the record, I never went all the way with Dolph Ziggler. Rusev my heart belongs only to him. He is my Bulgarian love.
Rusev- For the record I didn't go all the way with Summer Rae. From now on when I step into this ring I won't just break someone's spirit, I'll break their bodies! My heart belongs only to you Lana. *They begin to make out*
FEED ME MORE!
Ryback- I think we've all seen enough of this crap. Also, I heard the Zigman went all the way Lana! This is Pittsburg and we believe in Smashmouth here! The big guy is hungry! Feed me more!

Rusev rolls but Ryback isn't gonna wait, he chases after him and tackles him into barricade and then into the steel steps. The steps seem to have bumped the leg of Lana so instead of getting back in the ring Rusev checks on Lana and gets counted out.
Triple H is on his phone and Dean Ambrose walks in.
Ambrose- Hey...you wanted to see me?
Triple H- Yeah I did, I just wanted to congratulate you. Congratulations on winning that triple threat match on Smackdown and securing yourself a title match with Kevin Owens. Good for you!
Dean- That's it? You called me in here to congratulate me.
Triple H- That and oh your pal Roman Reigns, if he doesn't beat Sheamus for the championship in under 5 minutes, not only will he lose his championship opportunity..but so will you. Roman needs to learn his actions have consequences. For him and his friends. Good luck.
The Dudley Boyz are in the ring with some tables.
You know last week wasn't a good week for the Dudley Boyz. The Wyatt Family beat us and beat us up. Smackdown wasn't much better, they beat us up again, and this time it was worse. They added insult to injury when they chokeslammed me through one of our own tables. The Wyatt Family has been able to do what most men could not do. There is only one problem, you guys didn't get the job done. If you were standing in front of us right now we'd say congratulations, but we're still standing and ready to fight at any given moment. By doing what you did to us you made yourself the target, you put a target on your back, you put your names on these tables. *They rip off black sheets from the tables and each has a Wyatt Family member name on it*
And you see boys, it's obvious you forgot about those commandments. Thou shall not steal, thou shall not kill and most importantly thou shall not mess with the Dudley Boyz.
Why don't you get your family, come down here, and we can finish this TONIGHT!
Bray and the family appear at the top of the ramp.
Bray Wyatt- On behalf of my family I would like to accept your little challenge, but you should be more careful inviting the devil in your backyard because he might just like it and decide to stay.
Now the Wyatt Family is closer to the ring.
Bubba- You think you have the upper hand, look at you, the three of you and the two of us. You have your family and we have ours!

Charlotte- Don't let her get in your head.
Becky- No this isn't about Paige, it's about having fun! Like we did in NXT.
