Report by Zack Krasney of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
Hello all my lovely readers and welcome back to Monday Night Raw! My name is Zack Krasney and I am your host with the most, the crown prince of Wrestling News World. We are just about half way to Money in the Bank and it seems the focus is certainly on the ladder match going in. That leads me to tonight's question:
Question of the Week: Who will be the 7th man in the MITB ladder match?
Monday Night Raw Results
Raw kicks off with all the members of the Money in the Bank ladder match on top of ladders.
Kevin Owens- Yeah Lillian you don't have to do that, we're all pretty famous. Well except for Sami, we're all famous.
Jericho- We are and I'm the most famous in the arena tonight. Hell I was saying I was famous before I even was that's why I'm the best--
Owens- In the world at what you do, yeah you say it every week. We'll all be famous, you guys as the guys who lost to me. You can still be on the posters and all that, just in the back, you know...in my shadow.
Ambrose- Yeah that sounds great dude, very proud of you. Can we get to fighting? That's why we're out here on ladders right?
Owens- I'm not done. Winning this match means I will have a title match when and where I want. It means I will be WWE Champion. Boo all you want it's going to happen. I'll be a fighting champion and take on all comers, just none of you of course. I'll take on the Nation of Domination, the 4 Horsemen, and all the other guys I watch on the WWE Network, there's your plug. I'll take them all one.
Sami- That's the difference between you and me, you treat it like a certainty. That's an opportunity. I won't offer a chance to guys who haven't been with the company for 20 years, I'll offer it to anyone. I will pay it forward.
Ambrose- Ok we've established you're different. He doesn't want to fight, you will fight anyone. I appreciate that, I'll fight anyone. I'll fight a polar bear. I mean can we get to fighting, please? We're standing on ladders, Jericho looks dumber than ever with his legs crossed on top of a ladder.
Del Rio- Hey hey hey. You keep talking about being champion, but you will never be champion in WWE. Compared to me you're just a dog covered in fleas. Compared to me you're just a paper boy.
Cesaro- Very original speaking another language. You know--
Jericho- Hey Cesaro, shut your mouth. I want you to remember who created this match. Me! I created this match.
Cesaro- Then how come you've never won one.
Jericho- I won one...
Sami- Where? No you didn't.
Jericho- I did.
Sami- Which one?
Jericho- The first one. The sixth one..
Sami- Where was that?
Jericho- Apple. Look it doesn't matter! All that matters is that these fans get to soak in the gift of Jericho...take it in maaaan.
All the guys get down and Ambrose knocks Jericho off his ladder. They start fighting and Teddy Long comes out!
Teddy Long- Holla holla holla. I am back to take the longest running wrestling show in television history to a brand new era.
Jericho- What are you babbling about you bag of bones, you don't even work here anymore you idiot!
Teddy Long- Maybe not but if I was in charge of Smackdown I'd make this a Disqualification Triple Threat Ironman pack challenge!
Stephanie's music hits and she joins Teddy
Steph- Teddy all due respect but that didn't make any sense. Now, we haven't made any decisions about who is going to be running Smackdown and I'm sure not going to make one right now. I can tell you, it's not going to be you.
Teddy- Well to hell with that. Where's Shane at? Let me talk to Shane.
Steph- Well I would but Shane is actually not here tonight. He's on vacation. I know, I'm disappointed, too. So why don't you get to steppin'. Now as for you guys, you want to fight so badly? You'll all have 1 on 1 matches tonight. Sami Zayn you'll take on Alberto Del Rio. Dean Ambrose, you'll be facing Kevin Owens. Cesaro that leaves you taking on Chris Jericho and that match starts right now. Holla Holla Holla!

John Cena comes out to a mixed reaction.
Cena- There's on old saying you don't know what you've got until it's gone. We had anticipation, excitement, energy. For the first time we had AJ Styles eye to eye with John Cena. That moment was once in a generation. We normally have a rowdy crowd like this, but we normally have people chant Let's Go Cena, Cena Sucks. Half of you have my back and half don't want me back. What we had for almost 2 minutes was a crowd chanting Let's Go Cena, AJ Styles. I've been a part of many moment in the WWE but I only had that kind of electricity with one other man, The Rock. Because for a lot of you, this moment was a what if. We were about to get an answer to that question, but now I need the answer to another question. Why, AJ? Why did you take the easy way out. So now, what we have is a chance for AJ Style explain himself, so can we please have AJ Styles?
AJ comes out with the Club
Cena- You see the fans already wanted it, why did you take the easy way out?
AJ- Because I had a plan. To get in the ring with you, shake your hand, and punch you in the face. And it worked to perfection. You insult me, John Cena. Not now, you're great on the mic. You're great on the mic, the talk shows, the movies, well the ones you cameo in. But you insult me every time the bell rings. I know John it burns you up that on your best day you can't beat me. Hey, I'll tell you what I tell my kids when they ask why I've never wrestled you. John doesn't want to wrestle me because I'd wrestle circles around you.
Cena- The best you get is a golf clap, you had 15 years to get insult material on me and you say the same damn thing everyone says to me when we meet face to face. I'm offended by your skills, you can't wrestle. Your jokes are as outdated as my jorts. I'm about to drop some truth homie. I see a guy who wrestled 2 decades to try and make it and then finally was a surprise entry in the Royal Rumble and did nothing. Then was gifted a title opportunity and failed. Then failed AGAIN. Instead of dusting yourself off you join your henchmen. You turn to me because you think I'm the one guy who can salvage your career. You couldn't get past Roman Reign and no you're picking a fight with John Cena?
AJ- Why don't we back it up? I'm desperate? Me? I've been all over the world. Desperate is someone who couldn't go anywhere else! I could go anywhere and they'd welcome me with open arms and sell out the place! I have nothing left to prove and nothing left to lose. That makes me dangerous.
Cena- So why on earth is not AJ Styles vs. John Cena instead of Cena vs. The Club.
AJ- Here's why because everyone know that one loss to John Cena and you better get out the shovels. These guys are my insurance policy. You have no idea what you're up against.
The Club surrounds the ring but Cena stands his ground. New Day runs out and gives Cena some backup. The Club back down and retreat.
The VaudeVillains vs. Enzo and Cass
Enzo- My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a certified G, and a bonafied stud. And you can't teach that! And this right here, this is Big Cass, and he's 7 foot tall, and you can't teach that! Badaboom how you doin!?
Big Cass- To quote the greatest of all time, float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. Get at these two pansies like a certified G.
Enzo- RIP Muhammad Ali. I don't tussle with alligators, handcuff lightning, throw thunder in jail, just last week I hospitalize a break. I'm so mean I make medicine sick. If you think you're gonna beat us you better wake up and apologize. At Payback you sent me to the hospital, but uh, besides that I don't remember that but I bounced back. Let me tell you something pal, you could've knocked me out now or later, my jaw is strong like Ali's, so strong I'll blow a bubble out of a now or later. How you doin.
Cass- You are looking at the next WWE Tag Team Champions. And we're about to big league chew you up and spit you out. We're gonna prove that there's only one world to describe you and I'm gonna spell it out! S-A-W-F-T!

Dana Brooke and Charlotte make their way to the ring together.
Charlotte- Every great champion knows how to admit when they're wrong and since I've gotten your respect. I wanted to apologize after what happened with my dad. But everything I said needed to be said. You don't understand what it's like to be on top. I'm sorry, when I said you're dead to me I meant it professionally. I still want to have Christmas with you, work out with you, be best friends with you. As WWE Women's champion, I don't want to share my spotlight and I can be champion without Ric Flair. But I can't be daddy's little girl without daddy.
Becky and Natty cut her off.
Becky- There is cow dung in Ireland that smells better than what you're pumping out.
Charlotte- Becky shut your mouth, and Natty I figured you off all people would understand where I was coming from. Your family deserves it's own reality show, the Broken Harts.
Natty- The way you treated your father is disgusting.
Becky- This is what Charlotte does, she used me and Paige, she used her father. Dana, I don't like you very much, or at all, or even a little, but you should wake up and realize that Charlotte is going to use you up and throw you out.
Charlotte- That would never happen and besides Dana is my protege. I have lots to teach!
Natty- She will use you up and throw you away. I just want you to know Dana you have options.
Becky- This screaming banshee turned on her own flesh and blood.
Charlotte- Are you done? Can you believe them?

Teddy Long's music hits and he comes out and says he is restarting the match. Security comes out and takes him away. Backstage Steph walks up and tells him she only left him around for her amusement but enough is enough. Vince is going to have someone smart, young, with a brillaint mind for business running Smackdown. Basically, Stephanie not Shane. Then she kicks him out.
We see a memorial package for Muhammad Ali. May he Rest in Peace.
