From Baltimore, MD
Report by Zack Krasney of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
Hello hello and welcome back to Wrestling News World for Monday Night Raw! Zack Krasney is my name and hosting Raw is my game. Raw is in Baltimore tonight, my hometown...but I'm not there....I'm not bitter YOU'RE bitter! Sorry. Sorry. I'm ok. Last night was a pretty epic Smackdown PPV, Raw will have to up their game to follow it!
Question of the Night: Would you rather see Sasha face Charlotte, or would you rather it be Bayley like originally planned?
Monday Night Raw
Mick Foley is in the ring to kick off Raw.
Mick- Hello and welcome to Monday Night Raw. Summer may be over but things are heating up on Monday Night with Clash of Champions only 2 weeks away. We will find out if Kevin Owens defends against Seth Rollins or Seth AND Roman Reigns. Our competition in Smackdown did a good job last night, huge congratulations to Becky Lynch but I believe Monday Night Raw offers the best women's wrestling in the world today. With that let's give a warm welcome to our Women's Champion, Charlotte.
Charlotte and Dana come to the ring.
Charlotte- Mick it's so good to see you, but before we start there is something I need to get off my chest. How better than in front of the WWE Universe. I truly believe after last week and apology is in order, not you Mick.
Dana- Charlotte you don't owe me--
Charlotte- I would never apologize to you, YOU owe ME an apology. Do you know how embarrassing it is to lose to BAYLEY. You made a fool out of yourself and ME then you made yourself look worse by tapping to Sasha Banks. So apologize or our friendship and this mentorship is OVER.
Dana- I'm so sorry Charlotte.
Mick- I didn't call you guys out here to discuss this. In 2 weeks at Clash of Champions, your title will be on the line ---
Sasha Banks music cuts him off.
Sasha- No needs for the intro Mick, allow me. You're looking at the face of the Women's Divison and the Legit Boss of WWE. You're also looking at the Women who is taking that title back at Clash of Champions.
Bayley's music cuts him off this time.
Bayley- I would love to see Sasha compete for the championship tonight, but look I know I'm the new girl but last week I beat Charlotte so...maybe, maybe the person who deserves the title shot is me.
Sasha- Woah woah, no Bayley we go way back. You had my back at Battleground, but when it comes to that title I have no friends.
Charlotte- Please you want another beating like the one I gave you at Summerslam?
Sasha smacks Charlotte
Charlotte- Let me remind you I'm the only champion in the ring. You don't decide when I defend my title!
Mick- No Sasha doesn't, Charlotte, but neither do you! Sasha originally I was going to give you your rematch at Clash of Champions but now I'm having second thoughts...
Charlotte- See maybe I should have your job Mick. It seems Sasha doesn't think little Miss Bayley doesn't belong in the title match, maybe at WWE Camp instead. Definitely not Monday Night Raw. Sasha, I agree with you there.
Dana- Obviously Sasha and Bayley should be fighting to decide who faces the Queen. Maybe another best of 7 series is in order?
Charlotte- Dana who said you could speak? Speak again and I'll slap the taste out of your mouth.
Mick- I've come to a decision, Charlotte will defend her championship against the winner of tonight's match. Bayley vs. Sasha Banks!
Charlotte- This is your fault Dana!
Dana smacks Charlotte!!
Mick- And Dana Brooke! A triple threat! And that's next!

The Shining Stars are trying to sell a timeshare to R-Truth when Goldust saves him. Cass and Enzo walk up and tell them they have unfinished business. Enzo challenges Epico to a match tonight.
Tom Phillips interviews Kevin Owens about his match. Owens says in 2 weeks it will be a 1 on 1 match because tonight he beats Roman Reigns. Then he is going to walk out of Clash of Champions as Universal Champion. Jericho sneaks up and says the real story isn't Mick Foley putting Roman in a match against Owens, it's that Foley pulled KO from the Highlight reel, but he found a guest...Sami Zayn. Owens former best friend.
Bo Dallas vs. Jobber
Bo cuts an intense promo/poem to start the match like last week. Bo attacks quickly with knees to the gut of the jobber then goes for a tackle but gets thrown out of the ring.

Bo attacks and beats down the jobber and then hits his new finisher (which isn't far from Sister Abigail..just saying) for the win.
Winner: Bo Dallas
The Highlight Reel
Jericho- Welcome to what was supposed to be the best episode of the Highlight Reel in history. We were supposed to have a man so amazing that Tom Hanks will probably play him in his lifetime biopic, or Brad Pitt, he's that handsome. My best friend, the longest reigning Universal Champion in history. But instead, the selfish Mick Foley pulled him. So what do you do when you can't get the top of the mountain? You go all the way to the bottom....Sami Zayn.
Zayn- Well first and foremost, thanks Chris for that glowing introduction.
Jericho- What'd you want me to sing Ole Ole Ole? That intro was perfect for a lowlife like you. I mean Kevin Owens ditched you as a best friend? I mean you don't even have his new phone number do you? I got it. Want it? Too bad. You're probably wondering why you're here.
Sami- I am actually, so why am I here Chris?
Jericho- I wanna know what kinda man you are Zayn? To blow your friendship with Kevin. He is an honorable guy, he's the Universal Champion, he's a good man. It must have been you.
Zayn- I've said it before I'll say it again, I don't care about Kevin Owens. I only care about something he has, that Universal Championship. I promise I will hold that title too, one day. If you, however, think he's truly your best friend, your brother, then YOU are a stupid idiot.
Jericho- You see Zayn, you're just like the fans, name calling and rude. You're a taker. Me I'm a giver. I give people what they want. I have given all these idiots here what they want, what they neeeeeds. The gift--
Zayn- The gift of Jericho, yeah it sucks. Kevin Owens gave me a gift, the gift of showing me his true colors. I promise you'll see them one day.
Jericho- That's just jealousy. I see it coming out of you. You're jealous that Kevin is the longest reigning Universal Champion in WWE history and you are just Sami Zayn.
Zayn- Do you hear yourself at all? Is there any shred of the old Chris Jericho in there? Do you realize it's guys like you that inspired Kevin and I traveled the world? To hone our craft across the globe. You are a 6-time World Champion, you were the first undisputed champion, and now you've been relegated to just being Kevin Owens bitch.
Jericho- So you really think that Sami? You know what's funny before we came out here I got a text from Kevin telling what you'd say. You wanna know what it says? It says---
Jericho blasts Sami in the face with his phone and then the Code Breaker. Jericho walks out on a downed Sami Zayn.

Mick tells him it's only fair. Seth tells Mick he should just get Stephanie in here if he's going to sit in her pocket the whole time. Mick yells at him to make fun of anything about him but never question his integrity. Seth says he won't do that, but if he doesn't see what's happening he's a fool.
