From Sprint Center Arena in Kansas City, Missouri
Report by Zack Krasney of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
Hello one and all! Welcome back to Monday Night Raw here at Wrestling News World! I hope everyone who is a premium member is enjoying WNW HD! If you're not go, check it out! My name is Zack Krasney, I'll be your Raw host with the most as always. Last week was a helluva show and ended with my man Kevin Owens winning the Universal Championship. What will we see this week!?
Question of the Week: Who would you LIKE to see challenge Kevin Owens for the Universal Championship?
Steph is on the phone saying Kevin Owens has demanded a huge celebration and she wants to over deliver on that. Mick Foley walks up and demands to know why Triple H did what he did. She says she doesn’t know, she was backing Seth Rollins. Mick asks her why he should believe her and after a bit of prodding she says it’s because she was embarrassed as a Commissioner, as a leader, as a friend, and as a wife. She hasn’t be avoiding Mick, she just didn’t know what to say.
Balloons are falling and the ring has red carpet laid down. Steph and Mick are in the ring.
Steph- Ladies and Gentlemen, you’re Universal Champion Kevin Owens!
Kevin comes out in a nice suit and gets in the ring, ignoring a handshake from Mick Foley. A huge pyrotechnic display goes off.
Kevin- Look at this! Stephanie, Mick thank you! This is exactly what I wanted.
Steph- Like these people said, you deserve it.
Kevin- I do. I deserve THIS title. In fact, last week the entire arena chanted you deserve it, and they are 100% right. What I don’t deserve is a crowd of idiots trying to hijack my moment. Last week was my moment, what do you think? By chanting ‘you deserve it’ you’re trying to take my moment! I know I deserve it! I have since I stepped into this ring! I defeated three superstars to win this, but I will admit that Triple H showed up and gave me a little nudge. I did 98% of the work though. Monday Night Raw is now the Kevin Owens show!
Seth Rollins music hits and The Man comes down to the ring.
Seth- This isn’t about you so shut up! How could you do this to me Stephanie? After everything we’ve been through! I put your company on my back and I blew out my knee for it! I came back before anyone could have guessed for YOU!
Kevin- What a great story but this is about me! This is the Kevin Owens show!
Seth- Kevin I have no problems with you right now, I understand you’re just the puppet.
Steph- Seth I had no idea.
Seth- BULLCRAP! BULLCRAP! You expect me to believe that!
Mick- She had nothing to do with it!
Seth- Are you in her pocket too!?
Steph- He’s not in my pocket!
Mick- I’m not, but I have her back.
Seth- Kevin Owens has been Triple H’s boy since he walked in here. He has had his handle held since day one! You want to start a new era, fine! I will burn it to the ground! The King and Queen? I’ll have you on your knees begging.
Kevin- Again what a great story Seth, but I gotta ask where was this passion for the last few months. Ever since you got back, the architect has only been coming up with blueprints for total failure.
Seth attacks Kevin as Stephanie yells for Seth to stop. When he doesn’t she says he’s suspended. Mick says he’s not.
Mick- You’re acting as if this is personal, it’s not. When someone was wronged and their temper flares up we don’t suspend them, we give them rematches. You asked me to make matches when you asked me to be GM that’s what we’re going to do. There is certainly no love lost between myself and Seth Rollins, but it seems like the right thing to do. At Clash of Champions, it will be Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens.
Steph and Mick are slightly arguing about Mick making the Championship match, Mick says if Steph had suspended Seth people would talk and Mick cares about what people are saying about Steph. Kevin Owens comes up furious and insults Mick, which leads to Mick making a match for Owens against Sami Zayn. Chris Jericho walks up and calls them both stupid idiots for what they did to Kevin Owens. Steph tells him to never insult Mick Foley and puts Chris in a match against Seth Rollins tonight.
Charlotte tells Dana she only surrounds herself with winners, so tonight she's going to sit and watch Charlotte's match with Bayley and take notes with pen and paper.

Sasha Banks comes down to the ring and grabs a mic for her big announcement.
Sasha- There is a saying that every journey has an end and every story has a final chapter. For years, the WWE universe was searching for a revolution. Before Twitter and Instagram, there was a revolution for Women with women like Mae Young, Trish, and Lita who broke the mold. They wrote the first pages in the book of change, that lead to Stephanie McMahon leading the revolution. No more bra and panty matches, no more stupid butterfly title. We did it. We became what we deserved all along, to be called superstars. This revolution is more that WWE, it's every mother, sister, and daughter. My revolution is every time I step in this ring. Every time I step in this ring it's for every little girl who has a dream of being something bigger, being more. I used to wake up at 6 in the morning to collect soda cans to collect money to buy a ticket to WWE. That's why I fight so hard because every time I am in this ring it means everything to me. At Summerslam I was pushed to my limits, beyond my limits, Charlotte tried to break my back. No excuses, Charlotte beat me. Earlier today I talked to my doctors and I have some bad news.---
Dana Brooks interrupts- The only champion the universe deserves is Charlotte. The only bad news I have is that I'm going to use you to send a message to Charlotte. I'm going to end your journey right her right now.

Sasha- Actually Miss Piggy the bad news wasn't for me, it was for Charlotte, at Clash of Champions that title comes back to me!
