Report by Zack Krasney of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
Welcome friends! We are making our way towards Hell in a Cell and in the midst of a Seth Rollins/Kane rivalry. I hope everyone had a good week! Let's get our wrestling on tonight!
Question of the Week: Would you rather see John Cena drop the US Title in a scheduled match or an Open Challenge?
Kane is on the phone with Steph and Hunter. Their flight is delayed and Kane is put in charge of the show until they get there. Hunter wants to know if Kane can be a professional and put his personal stuff with Seth Rollins aside for tonight. Kane agrees. Kane hangs up and tells a stage hand to tell Seth Rollins he has a lumberjack match tonight and his opponent is...Kane.
Dean Ambrose- I've got some good news. Rumor has it the authority is running late tonight. Come on Hunter it's 8 we're live lets go. Welcome to Monday Night Raw! I've always wanted to do that. I'm not going to stand out here and bore you. I'm more of an actions speak louder than words kind of guy and I'm looking for a fight.
Randy Orton's music hits and he makes his way to the ring.
Orton- So Ambrose have I ever told you other than St. Louis how much I love Chicago. And after a 4 or 5 hour drive home I'm sleeping in my own bed so I'm very happy about that. While you were overseas last week I was battling the Wyatts which I know is very personal to you. I just wanted to tell you that I overheard that at Hell in a Cell you're going to be in for the fight of your life because you'll be facing Luke Harper and Braun Stowman. And I almost forgot to mention at Hell in a Cell you're partner is going to be me. Now Dean if you want to win this fight--
Dean- No no no, I know how to win this fight. I'm excited you're gonna be my partner at Hell in the Cell I think we're going to do great. I've been battling the Wyatts for years so the line to beat the beards off those guys starts behind me. So follow my lead and you'll do great kiddo.
Orton- Dean, I gotta say you're a talented guy. You've made a name for yourself in the short amount of time you've been here, but many many years ago when you were dreaming of becoming a WWE Superstar well I was already hearing voices in my head. Now I don't play well with others, but you don't either. If there was anyone in the locker room I could see eye to eye with on an issue like this, I think it'd be you. If you want to end the war with the Wyatts you need to be smart and follow my lead.
Dean- Thing is I've never been too good at following orders. Feel me?
Randy- Neither am I but I'm also no good at sitting back on the sidelines while someone like you takes the lead.
Dean- And I ain't so big on trusting you, never have been never probably will be.
Randy- Is that right? I can't blame you, most of the time I can't even trust myself.
New Day- BOYS BOYS DON'T YOU DAAARE BE SOUR!
Woods- Guys we're sorry to interrupt, but last week we destroyed, we conquered, we laid out and all you can talk about is the Wyatts?
Big E- I thought you two were supposed to be Am-bros.
Kofi- Yall were in there talking about whatever when you need to talk about the New Day.
Woods- Because we did the impossible, we took out Dolph Ziggler and redefined the term Show Off. We took out the Dudley Boyz and turned Dudleyville into a retirement community.
Big E- And we took out the WWE's crowning achievement we took out JOHN CENA.
Kofi- John we can see you! Laid out at the hands of New Day.
Woods- You see in one night New Day did more than any other team in WWE history.
Kofi- Dean if I remember The Shield ever do that? Did the Authority, did Evoluton, what about Legacy? Dang Randy how many groups have you been in?! You give new meaning to groupie! We're not just any old group. We have a saying, out with the old in with the New Day!
Woods- Why don't you take a page out of Derrick Rose's playbook and go sit on the bench. And let us bask in the glory of our greatness unless you want to feel the power of positivity.
*Kane appears on the tron*
Kane- Hi everyone, there seems to be some confusion in the ring. Let me make things clear, the inmates are not running the asylum tonight, I am. Until the Authority arrives. You know I have a poster that says if you play with fire...you get burned. It's a fire safety poster, but it applies here as well.

Roman- Well it feels good to be back in Chicago babyyy. Anyone but you, anyone but you Roman. This whole thing between me and Bray is about 1 thing. The WWE Championship, that's it. A few months ago I was in the Money in the Bank ladder match, I'm climbing the ladder and all of a sudden I'm taken out by someone not even in the match. When you've got beef in the WWE you settle it here in the ring. So me and Bray went 1 on 1 at Battleground and as soon as I started whopping his ass he called out the family and now the Wyatt Family is back together, great. I'm cool with that, I can do family vs. family. I called up Ambrose and it was ON. And we beat the Wyatts at Summerslam in the middle of the ring fair and square. The next night the Wyatt Family got a LOT bigger, and some weeks I got my ass handed to me. That's water under the bridge, what really irritates me, what gets under my skin, is this anyone but you. This anyone but you, that's what gets to me. As a man Bray Wyatt is trying to stop me from doing what I do. Every week I look at my 7 year old daughter and tell her "Baby Daddy is going to go out and get it for YOU." So the fact Bray Wyatt thinks he can step in front of that. Imagine if someone tried to stop you from giving your family that. Bray I'm going to rip you apart. So when Hell in a Cell comes Bray Wyatt is going to be left knowing he is the man who could not stop Roman Reigns.
The Wyatt Family walks out on stage.
Bray- just who you trying to convince Roman, these people or yourself? You can put the blame on me that's fine because at the end of the day I know you put this on yourself. There is a massacre awaiting you at Hell in a Cell.
Roman- I agree with you 100%. What you need to know is when they close that door you're going to wish they'd locked you in with anyone...but me.
Bray whispers something in Braun Strowman's ear and he makes his way to the ring.
